Thirteen Things that I Ponder....
1. Do you think that hobos still ride on open trains (I always think of the boxcar children when I watch a train go by)
2. Why do you park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?
3. I was rearranging our fridge and freezer to fit more food in and it hit me that the freezer doesn't have a light, but the fridge does...why?
4. Does the alphabet song and twinkle twinkle have the same tune?
(You just sang them didn't you!!!)
5. How is it that I can eat hamburger and pork just fine, but when it comes
to deer hunting, I think that's wrong? (I swear it's the whole Bambi thing)
6. Why is it that we complain about gas prices, but we are still driving huge
SUV's and still drive to a place just down the road? (I'm guilty of it too, but I
just wonder why we don't change something then!)
7. Why is it that I can not seem to stop biting my finger I do it
without even knowing it and I hate it!!!! (Any suggestions?)
8. Why is it that work goes by soooo slow, but then after work, it's already 10pm?
9. I just took my puppy to the vet for my parents a couple weeks ago and
she HATES it when we blow in her face, but she was more than happy to
put her head out the window on the way to the vet...why is that?
10. (I got this one from my cousin) Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere but a hemorrhoid when it is in you ass ?
11. Why is it that everyone visits the blogs on Thursdays, but don't read the
rest of the week? Are we boring the other 6 days?
12. Why is it that we know fast food restaurants are horrible for us, yet we
still find ourselves driving there are a long day at work?
13. Why do people just leave "mine are up" when they comment on your
TT. Can't you find anything to comment on out of these 13 things?
I'll add you throughout the day so make sure to leave a comment (like #13 says!!!)

thanks for posting your bleeping T13 - I dropped by earlier and they weren't up and my heart sank a little - not really, but that whole guilt thing works on some. I ponder the whole asteriod thing too - there used to be a show on NPR (national public radio), but it is not on anymore b/c the guy that hosted it died suddenly...anyway, it was called "Everything You Always Wanted to Know". I would tune in every Friday just to hear the random crap other people pondered about just to make myself feel more "sane", now the show is gone and feel completely alone and miserable for that hour on Fridays...ugh. Also, why is it that we are not as interesting on every other day of the week. I mean I think sometimes I really stretch to pull posts out of my (bleep), but c' some comment love. I know they are visiting - my site meter says so...but no comments.

Mary said...

HAHAHAHAHA _ the asteroid/hemmoroid thing was so funny!

Thanks for stopping by!

Janet ( said...

ROFL @ #13! I've wondered that myself...or when people visit from Michele's, sometimes all they say is Hi, Michele sent me. C'mon...

3. My freezer has a light...
4. I just sang them and it sure seems that way!
6. Personally, I drive a small car (Honda Civic Si)
7. Can't help you with that one...I bit mine for years and then just stopped, no idea why
8. Dude! I KNOW!

Undercover Angel said...

Wow - those things really do make you wonder - don't they... Thanks for visiting my TT.

I think dogs don't like getting blown on their face because it's a sign of aggression. That's just my guess though- lots of interesting things to ponder tho!

PresentStorm said...

still LMAO @ #10 that is too funny ...and yes I started singing them in my head on # 4...

Great List :)

Guppyman said...

#4 Baa baa blacksheep

Chaotic Mom said...

HAHAHAHA! You had me laughing at your deer comment. THEN the HEMERRHOID comment did me in. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my T13, too!

Or should I say, "Mine is up!"

Karen said...

Hi! actually, I've been trying to make a point to visit everyone through the week- but sometimes it's amazing how quickly Thursdays come up. of the probably 50 comments today I have left- only once did I say "great list' but it was a really hard list to comment about. and my freezer does have a light

Jen said...

#4, so does Baa, Baa Black Sheep.

I bite my nails. There've only been a couple of times in my life that I didn't. Once when a co-worker heard me complaining about how they looked and said, "Well, just stop biting them!" For some odd reason that worked for about a year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ardice said...

*LOL* I've pondered some of these things myself. #5 is so me - yes I believe it's the Bambi thing.

My TT's up. Have a wonderful evening. Take-Care...

Jessika said...

Great things to ponder. I finad myself pondering some of those things.. except the whole hemeroid thing... My TT are up!

Jane said...

I love these. I wonder about those things too. Does that make us related??????

My list is up.

TNChick said...

#9 - dogs, I'll never fully understand them -if only they could talk.

I'm not a fan of hunting either but I eat beef, etc.

Lifecruiser said...


Wow, that was a lot of questions....

Do you have any more questions that I can't answer? *lol*

Ocean Lady said...

I sing the ABC song and Twinkle, Twinkle to my little guy everyday, and he notices they are the same. The gas thing bugs me too! Happy Day! :)

Titanium said...

When I see open train cars, I think of the kids riding to the North Pole with Frosty the Snowman. :)

Cynthia said...

Good questions. I don't have any answers though. Sorry!

Mama Kelly said...

#10 reminds me of something that would make a South Park episode

Ames said...

mine are up - just wanted to drop in and post that randomly :)

Chana said...

I don't think dogs like the smell of our breath or something! It pisses my dog off when I blow in his face! Don't piss off a great dane! Um...mine are up (I say sheepishly).

the dogs are at

Tanya said...

I agree with #13 - that bugs me too.

And #1 - I was a hobo (a backpacker hobo) in Mexico for a while and I rode the trains on the flatebeds for free. Was the only way to see the Copper Canyon in it's true glory, and I recommend it to anyone!!

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

I'm sorry its taken me so late to make my TT rounds!

Boy, if I could figure out #8 I'd swear I had determined the meaning of life. Okay, not really, but it'd still be a really cool discovery. :)

Nicole said...

My freezer has a light.

I bite my nails too but I've been doing somewhat better. I have a couple that are growing out. I guess what helped me was making an effort to be more conscious of myself doing it.

I try to visit some people through the week but I don't have a lot of time for blogging so I don't get to visit as much as I'd like.

I saw a TV special on people riding the trains. They don't do it very much anymore because it has gotten so dangerous. Their used to be a serial killer that rode the trains and would kill other riders. I can't remember if they caught him.
