Woo hoo! I get to be the first reply today!!!!! I must have had extra caffeine in my coffee!

In honor of No Sock Day, I promise I won't sock anyone!

So yesterday was no pants day... today is no socks day.... I feel like I'm playing strip poker!



Today's Question(s):

Woo Hoo !! I just found out _________ ? It's no socks day. The means I get to buy a new pair of sandals, right????

Extra Credit Question:

Lets talk about magazines

How many subscriptions do you have ? 5-6

Once read do you

Keep them ? Sometimes for a few months, because I'm sure I'll read them again. But I almost never do. So after a few months I toss them.
or
Toss them ? The older I get, the more quickly I toss out things like magazines.

Actually, to be honest, I don't toss them. I give them to my dentist. Even the ones that are a few months old--they're still more current than what he has in the waiting room.


Bonus Question:

What was the last "offer" you just couldn't refuse ? The godfather asked me to sing at his wedding....

Just for Fun:

What is the "squeakiest" thing in your home ? My shoes. You can definitely hear me coming... squeak squeak squeak squeak squeak... unless I want to sneak up on you. (Remember, Moms always know when you're up to something, so don't count on my shoes to warn you that I'm coming....)


Inquiring Minds Question:

Get up and dance or sit and tap your feet ? Dance!
Read a book or watch TV Sometimes both at the same time.
Powder or liquid Laundry Soap? Whatever's on sale... and I buy in bulk.
Liquid or sheet fabric softener ? Sheets--you can re-use 'em in about 100 different ways. I like getting my money's worth out of something.


Word of the Day:

coruscate \KOR-uh-skayt\ , verb:
1. To exhibit brilliant, sparkling technique or style.
2.To give off or reflect bright beams or flashes of light; to sparkle.
Definition #3 should be "see Karla with a K and QOTD, both are the very definition of brilliant, sparkling technique."
