Thursday Thirteen...with a Thirsty Thursday thrown in!


A few weeks ago I got to have lunch with my friend James (he stopped in Texas on his way moving to Alabama from California). For the past 11 years or so, we've referred to each other as "Pinky and the Brain". It's a very long story on how we ended up with those nicknames (and let's not go into details on which one is "Pinky" and which one is "Brain".) ;) It all started when we worked together at a local newspaper while we were in college. Anyways, for those not familiar with the show, you can click here (or this list won't really make sense). For those of you are ARE familiar with the show, you know they always had a segment where Brain said, "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" and then Pinky would give some random, off the wall answer. So, in honor of James, The Journal, and Pinky and the Brain, I give you 13 of my favorite, "Are you pondering what I'm pondering" quotes.



1. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
I think so, Brain, but where are we going to find a duck and a hose at this hour?

2. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Uh, I think so, Brain, but balancing a family and a career ... ooh, it's all too much for me.

3. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Wuh, I think so, Brain, but isn't Regis Philbin already married?

4. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Wuh, I think so, Brain, but burlap chafes me so.

5. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Uh, I think so, Brain, but we'll never get a monkey to use dental floss.

6. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Uh, I think so Brain, but this time, you wear the tutu.

7. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
I think so, Brain, but if they called them "Sad Meals", kids wouldn't buy them!

8. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Well, I think so, Brain, but I can't memorize a whole opera in Yiddish.

9. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Well, I think so -POIT- but *where* do you stick the feather and call it macaroni?

10. "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Umm, I think so, Brain, but what if the chicken won't wear the nylons?

11. "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Well, I think so, Brain, but if Jimmy cracks corn, and no one cares, why does he keep doing it?

12."Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
I think so, Brain, but Pete Rose? I mean, can we trust him?

13. "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
I think so, Brain, but why would anyone want to see Snow White and the Seven Samurai?

And a new addition to my Thursday post. This is for Vic over at Freckles and Fudge (check her out, she ROCKS!!!) :)


She is so much more styling than me with her Thirsty Thursday (Arbor Mist and getting all dressed up fancy to go out). :) I, on the other hand, am sitting at my desk at work, enjoying a Dr Pepper from RaceTrac (gas station). If you buy one of their mugs ($6.99), you get free refills on sodas AND slushies until September 6. And I tell you what, their slushies give Slurpees some SERIOUS competition. And they have Dr Pepper flavored slushies at RaceTrac **insert Hallelujah chorus here**. Sorry 7-11, until you get Dr Pepper Slurpees at all locations, I might have found a new place to get a refreshing, icy beverage!

Cheers my friends!!
:)
