Friday Fragments: Episode #90
Someone once called me the "Queen of Clutter " (I'm sure she meant Friday Fragments; certainly not my house.) Anyway, welcome to my kingdom; a happy place, where minds are free of pesky thoughts and extraneous mumblings. (Click on the FF button to learn more.)
***I'm excited to say that I have decided to change my blog template and will be working with Lena this summer to develop the design. I like it when blogs stay the same, but mine will be two years old this summer, so I am due :) Lena has lots of terrific templates. On Saturday, I'll be switching Mrs.4444 Cooks to one of Lena's gems.
***And speaking of Mrs.4444 Cooks, the long awaited Devil's Sex Cake recipe is now up!
***As I type this, Kendall and I are watching the Life series on the Discovery Channel. I just laughed out loud and exclaimed, "How fun!" at a particular scene, and Kendall said, "Mom, you sound just like Grandma (my mom). I said, "I consider that a compliment," and she confirmed, "It is; it's sweet." Awwww.
***My friend Molly's son Brandon made it to the regional finals in our GLEE Casting Call!! Listen to his audition here and consider voting for him! (His is second to last.)
***I came across Getting Horizons Horizontal on a site called Digital Photography School. It gives excellent advice on how not to drive people crazy with crooked horizon lines.
***Kyle came in with the mail yesterday and said, "You have a little package there." I replied, smoothly, "That's what she said." Score one for Mom on the funny-front.
***Messy Mommy has one of my favorite post ideas; she takes the weekly People magazine headlines and comments on them. The result is always entertaining. I recommend you check it out.
Matty wrote my Favorite Friday Fragment last week:
Recently, I was in an elevator in a medical office. It stopped at a floor and two very old women entered. One of them looked at me and said, "You look just like my brother Bucky. And he's very handsome so take that as a compliment." Not knowing how to respond, I simply thanked her. And with that, the depth of her compliment became rather clear, when she followed it with, "He's 90 years old."
Poor Matty. I hope this takes the sting out, my friend:
Okay, here I go with my new Linky thing. Instead of just leaving your name, now you can leave your button (or not)! Check it out. [Remember, though, this is for Friday Fragments post only. Thanks.] Oh, yeah. and I entered it as a "blog hop," which I guess means that not only can the links be here on my page, but fragmenter lists can be posted on your blog, too. That way, everyone will get more exposure. Let me know what you think!
