Today's Question(s):

I am really glad I have the afternoon off.

But however I am not so glad because Now I have to get groceries. It's hard spending time off getting groceries, but it has to be done.



Extra Credit Question:

Do you have a "easy to spell name" or are you constantly spelling it for folks ? I think it's very easy, but it's amazing what people can mess up.


Bonus Question:

Have you ever found anything "strange" in your food ? Once my brother put a japanese beetle in my icecream & berries. I didn't find it until feeling something moving around in my mouth.....
Something in packaged food or a restaurant.... thankfully, no.

Just for Fun:

lol When was the last time you saw something really cool someone else had and you wanted one too ? With it being so warm in Vermont recently people are riding with tops down on their convertibles. I would like to have one again, but I also need to carry the kayak in the summer. Can you see a convertible with a kayak tied down in the back?
I also want a motorcycle again.

Did you get it ? No & it's highly unlikely I ever will.

Enjoy your day!

Today's Question(s):
I am really glad it's almost the weekend.
However I am not so glad because now I have to do my housework.

Extra Credit Question:
Do you have a "easy to spell name" or are you constantly spelling it for folks? My names - both first and last - are very easy to spell. My last name is only three letters and is a common word. Yet lots of people put an "s" or an "es" on the end of it, so I end up having to spell it for them. It's annoying!

Bonus Question:
Have you ever found anything "strange" in your food? Yes. I got near the bottom of a salad once and found a large, green, corpulent caterpillar which was enjoying the lettuce as much as I was.
If you did would you let the manager of the restaurant, the store or manufacturer know? Yes. I told the manager and he took the salad and said I could order anything else I wanted, on the house. By that time, I was so grossed out that I was turning greener than the salad and the caterpillar, so I declined any additional food.

I've got a few other stories, too, but I'll spare you the details. Suffice it to say, there's a reason why my sister-in-law calls a certain fast-food restaurant, "Kentucky Fried Rat." The incident occurred in 1981.

Just for Fun:
When was the last time you saw something really cool someone else had and you wanted one too? Whenever I see that someone has an outdoor spa, I wish I had one, too.
Did you get it? No. It's just a pipe dream.

Word of the Day:
eschew\ es-CHOO \ , transitive verb;
1.To shun; to avoid (as something wrong or distasteful).
I always eschew my lunch well. It's better for digestion.

Today is:
National Chip and Dip Day I like this stuff too much. That's why I can't even have it in the house. I only buy stuff like that when I'm expecting company.
National Melba Toast Day Melba toast is okay.
I Want One Too Day I'm pretty content with what I already have.
Dixie Cup Day Haven't used one of these in years.
National Puppy Day http://bestsmileys.com/dogs/4.gif (broken link)
Near Miss Day I always thought this was a stupid term. Should it be a near hit? If two planes pass close to each other, they nearly hit each other. I see that as a near hit. It's not a near miss; it is simply a miss. (Haha - I'll bet I made that thought clear as mud for y'all. )

HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYBODY!
