The Thursday Threesome: 303—451—501
Onesome: 303– In what household product line is this number used as a size? Can you guess, or will you have to hit the link?
I have no idea. I’m not a particularly domestic type of person so I’ve never really noticed any sizes.
Twosome: 451– Where is this number used in a title? Bonus: without Google, what is the significance of the number?
Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, apparently the temperature at which paper burns.
Threesome: 501– Where is this number used to denote a style? Ah, you should know this…

The Thursday Threesome: Moon River
Onesome: We’re after the same rainbow’s end- What’s your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Happiness, true friendship, money?
Happiness. Although to my way of thinking, this encompasses many things…
Twosome: Waiting around the bend- Anything interesting coming just ’round the bend for you?
Threesome: My Huckleberry friend- Huckleberries, what are they anyway?? Seriously though, what’s the strangest fruit you’ve ever eaten? Did you like it or hate it?
Huckleberries are a type of berry. I’ve never personally seen one though.
I don’t particularly think of any one fruit strange, but I’ll have to point out the durian. Tastes like custard, but very smelly. For me, the smell overwhelms the taste so I pretty much avoid it.

The Thursday Threesome: Wuthering Heights (and lows)
Onesome: Wuthering– What kind of word is that anyway? Do you have a word you think is just strange? “Kangaroo” comes to mind…
I always think of “withering” when I hear “wuthering”, but I’m sure that’s not the same thing.
wuther – verb – to rush, bluster, hurl, (also variant of whither)
wither – verb – to dry up or shrivel
And as for strange words, every word sounds strange to me if I repeat it enough times.
Twosome: Heights– Are you afraid of them or can you dance along the rooftop coping like a character in a movie?
This depends, especially on whether or not I can see the ground below my feet. If I’m standing on clear glass or some sort of grated metal, I am definitely nervous. If it’s concrete or solid metal or wood with no gaps, I’m fine. I can also look over railing and not be particularly disturbed.
Threesome: (and lows)– What kind of insect or bug sends you low and scurrying? Do spiders do that to you? Wasps? …or do you just squish everything that “bugs” you?
This depends on how big and how fast the bug is moving. And whether or not it is moving towards me. If the bug or spider looks like it’s going to annoy me anytime soon, I will squish it.
