Tell Me Thursday #11

Crooks and Crazies


What? Why yes, it is National Give Laura Chocolate Day. No, not really, but I've been trying to convince people for two weeks that it is. I guess you guys want to know what it is that I want to know this week, hunh? Allrighty then. Here we go:

1. What movie do you love but are too embarrassed to admit you love it?
2. Ann wants to know: How far do you drive/travel to attend trials, clinics, lessons? How far is too far?
3. What is your theme song (circa Ally McBeal)?
4. Laura S wants to know: If you had to choose a new dog activity, one that you had never done before, what would you choose?
5. What would your dog choose (or scribe, if you're Pippin)?

1. What movie do you love but are too embarrassed to admit you love it?

Ok, I secretly love the Ace Ventura movies. They're crude and disgusting, and I laugh like a lunatic every time I watch them. Even when I'm grossed out I still can't help but watch and laugh. Most of my friends know that I have a teenage boy type taste in comedies, but I rarely ever admit to loving me some Ace Ventura. Alllllllrighty then. Glad we talked about that.

2. Ann wants to know: How far do you drive/travel to attend trials, clinics, lessons? How far is too far?

Right now I'm pretty limited by my transportation. If I had a more reliable vehicle and more money I'd happily go 8-10 hours away. As it is now I have the AAA 200 mile towing thingie, so I go no more than 200 miles. :)

3. What is your theme song (circa Ally McBeal)?

I'm sure you're all wondering what the phooey I'm talking about. Last week we talked about theme songs on the trial field. Now I'm wondering about other theme songs - life situation theme songs. I actually have several theme songs, prepared for different situations.

a. When I'm wearing heels and walking my sexy walk I play "Mustang Sally" in my head. Oh yeah.

b. When I'm walking down the hall with my boss' tea cup in my hand I play the "Imperial Death March" in my head. You know, think Darth Vader.

c. Sometimes it's "Fat Bottomed Girls" for just random days. Yes. Really.

4. Laura S wants to know: If you had to choose a new dog activity, one that you had never done before, what would you choose?

Probably Dock Diving. I cannot bring myself to consider some of the more sedate ones and though I loves me some cougar dancing I don't care to do freestyle particularly. Well, maybe I could teach my dogs the "Running Man" and we could do our freestyle to some MC Hammer songs. I hear that Hammer pants are coming back in style. I think I still have mine somewhere.

5. What would your dog choose (or scribe, if you're Pippin)?

June would choose Flyball. But really... there's just no sanity in putting June in a situation that might involve barking. Nick and Linc would totally choose Dock Diving. I don't know about Pia yet - though she does love to tool around in a pond. Ginger? Sunbathing. Zippy? Snorkeling, apparently.

What? Sunbathing and Snorkeling are not dog sports? The heck you say.

Here's code for my button:



And here's the linky thingie:

I played. Not that I had much to contribute....

Jaenne' said...

Laura - if you give me your address, I would totally send you some chocolate! :-)

Julie Poudrier said...

If you send Laura chocolate, you also have to send me chocolate. That's the rule around here.

Steffi said...

Okay - now I really want to see your dogs doing the "Running Man"! You will get chocolate for it....

- Steffi

Jaenne' said...

Julie - that can be done! What kind do you girls like? I could also send some candy made by the Idaho Candy Company...get a taste of Idaho!

barjor said...

Yea! I love Thursdays!

Here's a question: What ONE attribute/skill/whatever is essential to be successful?

Kelly said...

Ok, mine was boring this week. Or maybe I'm just boring I'm not sure at this point. I know I find it freaking hilarious with my 3 injured sheep trot behind me and I feel like I should be singing mary had a little lamb...oh wait maybe thats my theme song. I didn't sleep well last night can anyone tell???

Kristi said...

Imperial Death March is my niece's favourite song. It is also the only one I can still play on the piano from memory. We play it a LOT and it's an awesome work theme song.

yeehaneeha said...

I had a harder time with these questions too :) It was fun though, thinking outside of the box!

Doniene said...

Great questions - kinda like the lighter side of things every once in a while. Last weeks deep thinking has stunted me. LOL

gvmama said...

Hey Barjor....Mr. Shannahan already answered that question during the finals :0)
Question: What breed was your very first dog?
And, how did you become interested in stockdogs?

The above may have been asked...this is my first week playing :0)

Mara said...

I played again! But my answers are kinda boring...

Catalina said...

I did this week's questions with a fire alarm going off 2 feet from my ear, so sorry about the quality of my answers!! Don't worry it was just a fire drill at work.....:)

sclmarm said...

I made it on Thursday! Now off to agility class:)

Robin said...

I'm pooped today. If I would win the lottery I could quit this time consuming job and spend all my time sleeping, training, and writing a blog.

Pippin, the Gentle Pup said...

We made it in this week! I bet Linc and I would be quite a hit on Dancing with the Stars!

Laura Carson said...

Pippin, I have consulted Linc about this and he says you are ON!

I find it so interesting that everyone's reactions are so different each week (reactions to the questions, I mean). I'm wildly entertained. :)

Laura Carson said...

By the way - I'll be around tomorrow to comment. It's been a crazy day today and I think I need to just go to bed.

Ann said...

Done! All I can say, is WATCH OUT, KATY!!!

Doniene said...

Sweet Dreams!!

livin life said...

I'm #20!!!!!! Does that mean I win a lanyard? Okay, okay...I'm weeks late but still worth pestering you :0) Chocolate eh? Come to the finals in 2012....and I'll get you some really good chocolate!

brinian said...

not sure if I'm linking correctly, but I'm trying!

Emily said...

I LOVE ACE VENTURA! Excuse me sir, but do you have a mint??

Laura Carson said...

livin life, LOL! Isn't the 2012 finals in Oregon?? Or SD? Somewhere really far away from NC? I'll see what I can do.

Brinian - you did it!

To those of you I haven't commented yet - I've been having some blogger login issues. So sorry! I'm working my way through. :)

livin life said...

Okay...listen....Oregon is NOT that far from NC! So here is what I have to say....you come to the finals, I will have a bed for you. You will have to sleep on the top bunk and know I travel with 6 dogs.....but you will have a bed! AND chocolate! Come and run...or at least sign up to exhaust! Can you tell who is helping with the volunteers??? :)
