A Major Award


My award for witty writing arrived in the mailbox yesterday - with much thanks to ColdCocoa and her daughter A for awarding such a prestigious honor - and for those who are just joining us you can see the contest here to check out all my stiff competition!  The promised prize was this:







As you can see by the next picture - the prize which arrived was MUCH better... don't hesitate to participate in contests sponsored by this blogger - she will not disappoint.

To be perfectly honest, the melting together of all the gummi worms was entirely my own fault for many many reasons:  1-I never check my mail... this extends to never getting around to mailing anything, which is what prevents me from doing my own giveaway until I am more disciplined  2-I did choose to live where the heat extends until Halloween (ahhh... gotta love costumes with shorts) 3-okay, there are really no more reasons - but just to set everyone's mind at ease I did not let M consume that entire blob, we pulled of a few for her and P has laid dibs on a significant chunk for after school!  Of course, being the poet laureate of cloudy days, I will have my own share as well!

In other news - I am shocked and dismayed at the amount of time I can now waste on the computer... even without playing boggle here or pictionary  -ACK!  I removed a link here because after not playing it for a long time I remembered in the middle of the night that it's sometimes a little hard to find decent people to play with - and that I can't stand the language...  THAT's why that didn't last long!  Now I've discovered Facebook (had to check it out for the kids after all...) and it's a weird kind of trip... you pick whether it's a trip down memory lane or a trip to the loony bin.  I have officially put myself on a 30 minute a day MAX diet or else it will likely become an obsession.  Frankly, with the life I have - there's no time for obsessions!  On the plus side - that little bit of a guilty "ugh, I need to DO something" feeling really gives me the kick in the pants I need to get the house spic and span :)

Perfect! Thanks for the publicity!

I forgot- you don't need to let the gummis sit in your car! You can just use the hot mail system and a 400-degree oven mailbox. Well, enjoy!

I have never tried the online games, though those sound semi-educational, which is good, right? As for facebook, there is one friend request I've ignored as she is looking for both women and men to have a relationship with, (ahem). Plus I never knew her that well. But I try not to get on there too much since I already have my own preferred online vices(like blogs!.) Only if I've been alerted to a message or have a friend request...

PS...you read in bed? And Q can sleep? Is that the intended use of pictured book light? That sounds like fun but our bed is the most uncomfy thing to read in. We need to get a headboard! And preferably a soft one.

CC-just get more pillows. I only like to read in bed. Reading sitting upright seems too formal and like I should be having good posture.
T- glad you enjoyed the treats that were meant for me. How many old beaus have you found on Facebook? I won't tell Q.

T said...

no old beaus... unless you count the guy I dated twice while waiting for Q to get serious :) Haha, Q won't remember it that way... funny thing is - he's a great guy and still single... do you know anyone?

oh, and I read in bed a lot - can't fall asleep without a few minutes of decompressing. Unfortunately sometimes that "decompressing" becomes obsessive reading so I have to switch to crossword puzzles to numb my brain.

I sometimes read in bed but my hands freeze for some reason. Sitting up works okay but I guess I still need more pillows? Anyhow, the computer is a time trap and at least your reasons sound fun!
