I don't know that I'm surprised about anything. I would have to have an expectation in order to be surprised, and I guess I don't really have any expectations about how things should be --- at least personally.
Ridiculous? Probably the only one I'd remotely call ridiculous is "beer o'clock" .... but as a teetotaler, I'm hardly objective there.
Never say out loud? Again, "beer o'clock", since it's never that time in my house.
Most likely to use? I've used "brain fart" many times.
It has to be a good kind of gravy. The gravy that Mom used to make never quite worked for me, so it's never been a sauce that I've sought out. On the other hand, I had some mashed potatoes and gravy at KFC a few weeks ago, and that reminded me how good gravy can be if it's treated like a food in its own right.
Of those listed ... probably turkey and gravy. But I've never heard of "biscuits and chocolate gravy": what is that? Because ... chocolate ...
A plan for what? I generally like to plan lots of things, but I'm increasingly in positions where plans don't really do much good.
I'm sure we've got a copy someplace in the basement, because everyone does. I haven't played it for years. Somewhere online I read that the chief problem with the game is that the end of the game is too long and drawn out ... you know you're about to lose for about 30 minutes before it actually happens, which is pretty miserable for the loser. Other board games give a much better sense of hope to "losing" players for far longer.
Never been to Atlantic City. I've ridden Amtrak a few times. Parking in Fenton is mostly free, thanks. Take a chance? A lot of geocaching is like that :) .
6. A song you like that has the word (or some form of the word) thanks in the title, lyrics, or meaning?
Well, if you'll let me talk themes, I'll use this one. The word "thanks" isn't in the lyrics, but it's there.
My job. As much as I complain about it (and I do complain about it a lot), I have it much better than I am willing to admit.
Since Thursday night, I've been in a week-long hiatus between grading spells. The midterms are finally over and graded ... and the big projects don't starting coming in until Thanksgiving eve. I'm enjoying the break ... because it won't last long.
