So many fragments, so little time....Welcome to the happiest place on earth come Friday--the place we unload all of our random thoughts/worries/observations/bits of wisdom from the week so that we can relax and enjoy the weekend. I'm ready to let 'er rip. How about you? (To learn more about Friday Fragments, click on the green button above :)
***Grrrr. I hate it when the last minute or two of a show is cut off when DVR'd. I'm sure it's deliberate, and I do not appreciate it!
***If you like a challenge, you will either love or hate this game...Tic Tac Toe
***Weaselmomma doesn't fragment often, but when she does, it's good. This one made my FFF this week!
"I am used to being asked, "You lip, too?" every time I get my eyebrows waxed, but now, to have, "You toes, too?" added to the list hits below the belt."
Poor Weaselmomma. At a certain point, we just can't get the hair to grow in the right places, can we?
I also enjoyed Gladys's comment about her annoying dog:
"You know what I hate? Is when my dogs bring something dead up to the house and I can’t distinguish what it is. This morning I swear they were chewing on a part of a human skull that still had its hair on it."
Can't you just picture that?! Yikes! I decided to give the Favorite Friday Fragmenter award to you, too, Gladys. (And next time, choose a better place to bury your ex-husband. :)
***Got pumpkins to get rid of? Trying making my yummy, unusual Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds!
***BlueViolet, of A Nut in a Nutshell is having a giveaway with lots of chances to win The Encyclopedia of Immaturity, Vol. 2. (And who doesn't know someone who needs that book for Christmas?! Go for it!
***And speaking of Giveaways, have you entered mine? Amon Maternity is offering a $50 merchandise credit, which is awesome, because you'll be able to buy more than one item with that, so you can get your own belly under control and even help a jelly-bellied friend in the process! (no pregnancy necessary) It's simple to enter, and your chances of winning as of Thursday evening are 1 in 14, which is pretty danged good!
***I helped my mom by handing out Halloween candy at her house last Saturday. She gets about 100 trick-or-treaters each year, so she figured buying a big bag of 200 pieces would be fine. It would have been, too, if the Tootsie Rolls in the bag had been bigger than Tic Tacs. When the bucket was half empty, Mom told me to "back down to one each." Seriously?! Mom, sorry; I was not going to offer a 13-year-old kid with a chainsaw a 1-inch Tootsie Roll and a smile. I ended up cleaning out her candy bar dish from the table for the teenagers and defied her order and gave TWO to each little tyke. It all worked out nicely, and her windows are perfectly free of soap.
***I cannot tell you how EXCITED I am about the fact that our choir teachers have hatched a brainstorm of an idea: the first-ever Tinytown Community Christmas Concert! That means anyone in the community may join the choir and sing in a concert on December 22nd! I have been whining for years about how I wish we had a community choir in our school (Heck, I'd settle for someone's garage!) I just want to sing, and now I will have the chance! Also, Kendall is joining, too! That means we are going to be singing together, and I get choked up just thinking about it. Stay tuned...
***I think it's rude to not have a clue what Friday Fragments are but link up your non-FF post AND not even leave at least a comment. Hello?--Read the directions referred to at the top of the page. (I know that's not very gracious of me, but come on; I hate that.) (Don't worry--I deleted the links.) Link up your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS post here--The more the merrier!
