lol when was the last time you were "annoying" on purpose ? Hubby would say this morning.

I would only last a day or 2 if I worked at
1. A cheesecake factory
2. A Pet Store
3. Being a personal assistant for one of my favorite rock stars.

lol Not because you couldn't do the work but because you enjoyed being there so much no work got done

Today's Question(s):
inspired by Stripes17 answer and M Mikes answer to Stripes answer on yesterdays QOTD

Do you regularly use your Blinkers (turn signals) when making turns ?
Always.

How about when changing lanes ? Yes, except if I'm the only one on the road.

Have you ever forgotten to turn it off and driven a while with it blinking ?
No but DH does quite often. I remind him every time because the ticking drives me insane!

Bonus Question:

LOL I would eat "rice & beans" for a week just so I can travel.

(I actually used this phrase with a friend yesterday and she though it was so funny I thought "what funny answers would my QOTD family come up with)


Extra Credit Question:

lol when was the last time you were "annoying" on purpose ? To my DD. I mimicked her. She understood what I was doing and had to laugh.


Inquiring Minds Question

Last time you saw a "speed trap" in your area ? Just today. They're a common way of revenue raising here.

Was there a sudden "sea of red taillights" in front of you ? Yes.

lol was yours one of them ? Can't help it since everyone in front of me is suddenly slowing down. I have to, or I'll run up the back of the car in front of me. Not that we were really speeding anyway but people freak.


Just for Fun:

I would only last a day or 2 if I worked at
1. Pet Grooming (we'd both be wet and having fun but not getting too clean too quickly)
2. Mustang Car Sales (I'd be test-driving all day long!)
3. Chocolate factory - I'd be sampling too much.

lol Not because you couldn't do the work but because you enjoyed being there so much no work got done


Today is:
Julliene Fries Day !! Yum. Shared some today with my daughter, at lunch, with a nice aoili to dip them in.
Truck Driver Day They get our necessities to our shops, a thankless job, tough work being away from their loved ones for so long.
Sewing Machine Day Handy things. I have one, use it fairly often, mostly for mending and decorative things.
International Youth Day
Vinyl Record Day !!! I prefer CDs and MP3s
Baseball Fans Day I'm one, which is tough in this place. It's all about cricket here, which is incredibly boring.
