The nasty, icky, nipple hardening cold from the first half of the month is gone… but not before I was able to get (somewhat accidentally) this really neat looking photo of one of the icicles hanging off my roof. It makes me shiver just looking at that icy tendril. It wouldn’t have lasted long the past two days when it’s damn near felt spring-like. And at least I no longer have to worry about veering around Mt. Everest while backing out of my driveway…
Now it’s time to share our world, with questions, as always, provided by Melanie…
Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone?
I’m assuming this is a smartphone phenomenon, as I’ve seen countless people (mostly women and girls) strut around with their phones sticking out of the back pocket of their skin tight pants and have always wondered how they manage not to break the damn thing when they sit down…
I’ve never owned a smartphone, and for the past year and a half, haven’t even had a dumbphone anymore. So you won’t have to be worried about getting butt-dialed by me. And I won’t have to worry about glass in my ass….
If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?
What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently?
Each January/February, I host a lyrics contest on the Millionaire message board I’ve been a member of for two decades now. One of my bonuses for each game asks players to find an image online that somehow ties into the theme of that particular game… because as I’m sure you’re aware, I love challenging people to be creative and find ways to entertain me and make me laugh. Just like here, my players there never fail to amaze me. Here are some of my favorite “Image Bonuses” from this year’s game that recently wrapped up…
Theme: The letter Y
Theme: Silence (I actually based this game on Mr. Fox!)
Theme: The word “hold”
Theme: Glowing (Warning: Sick humor ahead! Do not attempt this at home!)
Theme: Two things that go great together
Theme: Gym class
And one of my all-time favorites, submitted in the 2019 game…..
Theme: Farm living
Have you ever eaten something off the floor? ‘5 second’ rule applies or not?
I’ve definitely taken plenty of pills that have fallen on the floor due to my clumsy hands, which if you’ve opened boxes and stocked shelves for a living as long as I’ve had, is quite often. Those things are too hard and/or expensive to replace. I don’t think I’ve eaten food that’s fallen on the floor before, but I’ve scarfed up plenty that’s fallen off the plate onto the table…. including at public restaurants. Dirt/grime/hair/stuff that makes the food look nasty is what disgusts me. Germs/bacteria/viruses/crap I can’t see is never something I’ve cared about…
Feel free to share your gratitude with everyone in the form of a quote, a thought or an image.
Since we’re on a funny kick today, I don’t think any movie scene I ever saw cracked me up as much the first time I saw it than this fitting gratitude scene from Christmas Vacation…
Yeah, it loses a little if you aren’t American and didn’t have to recite the Pledge in class every morning as a kid….. but as soon as the first words came out of her mouth, I about shit my pants 30 years ago!
