Bonus Question:
In Honor of "Toilet Paper Day"

Which do you prefer I don't know whay ply it is but the brand I always buy is Northern Double Roll - I think its the best for the money...although I did buy Scott on sale recently and it was much softer than it used to be...and it's individually wrapped which is great when you have kids that tear into things and leave them opened!
1ply ?
2ply ?
3 ply ?

Anyone remember when they had the different color TP ?
Did you ever buy it for your home ? I had pink and also blue growing up but have never bought it myself.

Extra Credit Question:

When typing, how many of us have to look at the keys ? Oh yes!

If you notice a "Typo" do you backspace erasing everything to the "oops" and start over
or
Just click on the "opps" and fix it ? Most times I do the backspacing.

Just for Fun:

What is your favorite appetizer(s) ? Nachos or shrimp cocktail!

Today's Question(s):

What was the last thing that had you saying
"You have got to be kidding" ?
The other day when I walked into my office at work. Everything was in in a heaping pile on the floor while carpet was being installed. Seems someone forgot to tell me I was getting carpet for my office.

Bonus Question:
In Honor of "Toilet Paper Day"

Which do you prefer
1ply ?
2ply ?
3 ply ?
I do not care how many ply my TP is. The only thing that really matters to me is how much TP is hanging on the holder during my time of need.

Anyone remember when they had the different color TP ?
Sadly I do. Boy do I ever need to get a life

Did you ever buy it for your home ?
My mom use to

Extra Credit Question:

When typing, how many of us have to look at the keys ?

Yes I do. When I was in 9th grade I took typing. We had the old Royal manual typewritters. They were in very bad shape and we would spend most of the time trying to fix them. The teacher was not really interested in teaching a bunch of freshmen guys how to type so he put no effort into the class. Most of us dropped out. Never tried again to learn how to type.

If you notice a "Typo" do you backspace erasing everything to the "oops" and start over
or
Just click on the "opps" and fix it ?
If it is only a word or two and I catch it while typing, I usually hit the back space key and back up. If it is when proofreading then I just correct the mistake.



Just for Fun:

What is your favorite appetizer(s) ?

So many favorites and so little time...My brain says to just put down Smoked Oysters and move on.

You've Got to Be Kidding?
I know there was one lately, but I'll have to think about it to remember what!

TP?
Buy Charmin, the ultra (only kind my husband likes)

colored toilet paper?
Yeah, I remember it, bought it and still would if it were available!

typing? look at the keys?

No! Posting on cd is a great way to practice typing skills!

favorite appetitizer?
hmmm..... something "cheese-ey" or shrimp cocktail maybe.

Good morning Karla...glad you were able to get this going today...

What was the last thing that had you saying
"You have got to be kidding" ? Most likely something that has to do with our government! It's really beginning to scare me now!

In Honor of "Toilet Paper Day"

Which do you prefer
1ply ?
2ply ?...this one...and it's got to be soft!
3 ply ? Do they make 3 ply? If I knew the brand I'd probably get this one!

Anyone remember when they had the different color TP ? Yes...I'd totally forgotten about this!

When typing, how many of us have to look at the keys ? No...it confuses me if I look! I learned to type on a typewriter with caps over the keys in Jr. High. We had to look at a chart on the wall that had a diagram of the keyboard.

If you notice a "Typo" do you backspace erasing everything to the "oops" and start over
or
Just click on the "opps" and fix it ? Both...it depends on how far I've gotten past the "Typo"!

What is your favorite appetizer(s) ? Chips and Salsa

Happy Monday everyone!!
