TGIF!! Friday Fragments (and Friday's Freewrite, from Ordinary and Awesome) are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post--The more the merrier! (Click on the buttons above to learn more about FF or FF.)
***I'm at BlogHer today, so I don't know how many Fragments I'll get to read by Sunday, but I do plan to catch up with you eventually, so by all means, link up! But don't forget:
-Everybody likes company in the blogosphere-meet a new Fragmenter/Freewriter today!
-Friday Fragment/Freewrite Posts only, please.
-Remember to add a link back to here and Sara's blog if you are linking (that's the linky love part)
***How's this for random? I woke up last Saturday morning, having not seen a children's feature film in at least ten years, wondering this: "In the movie, 101 Dalmations, what was the name of that system in which dogs barked from town to town to warn of impending doom?" If you can answer this question, I'd be much obliged :)
***Remember the awesome TWT photo of my mom and her sisters on the swing? Christy, of Thru the Lens, was inspired by it and took this wonderful series. It's terrific!
***Irony-"Someone" I know uses a "Have-a-Heart" trap to catch the thieving, vandalizing chipmunks who sneak into our garage (through the 8-inch hole they chewed in the door.) Sometimes, he takes them on a long trip and lets them go. Sometimes (like when they find their way back) he uses a pellet gun to administer corporal punishment.
***In a return to Favorite Friday Fragment glory, Yaya- became my Favorite Fragmenter last week with this....
Someone left a bag of poop on my front stoop. Oh, wait. That was me.
Maybe you have to be a little off (like Yaya) to find that funny, but I cracked up. (I thought, "What?! What kind of nutjob would leave a bag of crap on someone's doorstep (without lighting it on fire, first?)
Yaya, thank you for always being good for a laugh. You are one of the most charming, sweet, funny people I almost know. Enjoy your award.***It's not too late to buy tickets in Hallie's HUGE raffle fundraiser!! Seriously, this is HUGE.

***I'm on a mission to win cute baby stuff for my niece's baby shower next month. So far, I've entered Leslie Loves Veggies's Baby Dipper Bowl Giveaway. There are tons of ways to win!
Okay, there's packing to do and whatnot, so I'm going to keep them short this week. I've switched to McKlinky (Mr.Linky crossed me!), so join the conga line here:
