Random Monday Musings

I always think of fantabulous post topics at home - while the daughter is hogging the computer. She is to blame for squelching my inner muse. Here at my office, I'm never inspired. So, today, you get dribblings of mind sauce, but no real gravy. Cool?

First, here is a little quiz I took today, and it's amazingly accurate, given that apple martinis have been my drink of choice in the past six months (thanks to Jean, Charlie and Nic).
You Are an Appletini

Most of the time, you're a typical party girl / guy.
But when you get super sauced, you really up your sex appeal.
Not to sound egotistical, but my sex appeal is sexy enough - maybe too sexy. I don't know where Justin Timberlake has been, but sexy never has abandoned my little world.

Fellow Rotarian and comic email-forwarder Spencer Jordan sent me a cute non-Martha-Stewart Thanksgiving invitation. It included the following lines that could very well reflect the holiday if our friends and family were crazy enough to celebrate at my house:

"Our sidewalk will not be lined with homemade, paper bag luminaries. After a trial run, it was decided that no matter how cleverly done, rows of flaming lunch sacks do not have the desired welcoming effect.

Once inside, our guests will note that the entry hall is not decorated with the swags of Indian corn and fall foliage I had planned to make. Instead, I've gotten the kids involved in decorating by having them track in colorful autumn leaves from the front yard. The mud was their idea.

The dining table will not be covered with expensive linens, fancy china, or crystal goblets. If possible, we will use dishes that match and everyone will get a fork. Since this IS Thanksgiving, we will refrain from using the plastic Peter Rabbit plate and the Santa napkins from last Christmas."

Rows of flaming lunch sacks - hysterical!
This next little piece of fluff is not necessarily for the young or faint of heart. Whiterabbit was kind(?) enough to send this little tidbit, with the comment that, "This show better have really good prizes!" Agreed.

And finally, Mugsy sent me information about a one-time tax refund, which sounds pretty good.

So, does this video explain why Japanese people tend to breed short people?

And they say Americans are crass...

I'm a Mai Tai.

When I see a video like that I know that there are masochists and sadists making a living doing what they love.

Damn, I had to share a fork when I was little.

I am... a Strawberry Daiquiri

"You're a fun, playful drinker who loves to party. You may get totally wasted, but you're always a happy drunk!"

Man, I think it's been over a year since I last drank, and it's been years since I got drunk.

I'll have to keep that tax refund in mind!

Just now getting around to visiting blogs again, and finally made it back to your place. Miss reading you.
I'm a strawberry daiquiri...even though I haven't had one in years.
Come for a visit sometime. I have a new place.

***You Are a Martini***

There's no other way to say it: you're a total lush.
You hold your liquor well, and you hold a lot of it!

No comment. None at all.

I can't imagine why anyone would agree to be on a show that would do something like that, but I'm sure we'll have that shit here soon enough. And some idiot will agree to be on it.
