Summer's the perfect time for Friday Fragments, don't you think? So many of you are just so busy enjoying your kids home for the summer [snort!], working in your garden, or going on vacation, that you hardly have time to post daily. This is great, because it means you're enjoying your summer. However, you know you have to unload the miscellaneous tidbits from your mind (and catch us up on what you're up to), so frag away!!! [To learn how to be a good Friday Fragmenter citizen, click here.]
***I heard on TV tonight that epilepsy kills as many people as breast cancer, but breast cancer gets five times the publicity. Wow.
***Here's a tip for those of you going to class reunions, graduations, etc. during which your photo may be taken: If you're going to wear a black shirt, invest in a black or nude bra. You'll be much happier when you see photos of yourself plastered all over Facebook :) Just sayin'...
***Some 13-year-old hoodlums got into our middle school last weekend and wreaked some havoc. They smeared peanut butter and jelly all over the place, wrote on the walls with markers and, oh, I almost forgot--- took a dump in one of the rooms. Really? Are you kidding me?! Now for the fun part: There are surveillance cameras in our building. The boys were found and confronted, and they confessed. I think it's safe to say that they are in deep sht.
***A few blogging buddies could use a kind word today. Beth is dealing with physical and emotional effects from a car accident two years ago. Weaselmomma and her husband Dave are remembering the loss of their sweet baby, Claire, eight years ago today. Dawn, of Bee and Rose, has a new post up . Her story, too, is a sad one, but she is keeping her chin up, in spite of things. (Dawn is the one whose husband, Chilly, shared his near-death experience, which I shared a while back.) Please consider stopping by and saying hi to these women who could use the kindness.
***The Lawn/Garden/Garage Edition of our Favorite Things is scheduled for July 9th (I'm leaving time for the holiday). Mr.4444 and I would love to hear your recommendations, so be sure to join in!
***Amy, of The Fourth Frog Blog shared this hilarious spoof of "All the Single Ladies"in her fragments last week:
Amy, you definitely earned the Favorite Friday Fragmenter award this week! Here you go:
***I also really enjoyed this fragment last week, from A Few Clowns Short:
"Here's another email picture I got recently. Ok at first I thought that's a great idea. What a space saver!
But then I remembered my daughter's room. The whole family would be in crutches and disabled the first week. Too big of a problem with forgetting to shut the drawers."
That would TOTALLY happen in my house, too. Lisleman, the Favorite Friday Fragmenter award also goes to you this week! Congratulations!
***Omigosh! I'm almost up to 1000 posts! That is crazy!!!
***A long, long time ago, my friend Kandee and I shared a subscription to The Tightwad Gazette. (It cost a whopping $12, if I remember correctly.) I still chuckle over that.
***I'm thinking of making a little shrine over there (in my sidebar) called, "Hall of Shame," where I post the buttons of people who don't read Friday Fragment posts and just link up their random posts, instead. (This idea makes me laugh out loud.) I have two names from last week that I could put up, and (believe it or not) one from today already. Dare I? (hahaha Don't worry-I have a little more class than that. Just having a little fun.)
That's it for me, and now I look forward to catching up with you and your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS post. Link up here, and after that, do a fragmenter a favor and go visit some other fraggers, especially OSCAR (if you see him below), because that will mean he conquered his fear and figured out how to link up! WOOHOO!!
