Fun Monday Assignment - July 16th, 2007 - UPDATED, Once Again, for YOU, My Loyal Readers

Wow...so I'm the Fun Monday Hostess for the week beginning July 16th! Hold on, let me adjust my tiara...and now, I'm all a-wonder. Could this be the BIGGEST FUN MONDAY EVER?? You guys are blowin' the lid off this thing! HOORAY!

Of course, I managed to forget that Sunday, July 15th, is the day I ship The Offspring off to choir camp - which is three hours away. At least I'll have some time without her hogging the computer Sunday night to get my act together. And they probably won't have flutes there, which puts my mind at ease somewhat.

AND...you're gonna LOVE this...it's been raining for WEEKS here. What did I walk in to first thing this morning? Agents and staff, letting me know that WATER is seeping up thru the carpet in one of the offices. Carpet people come. I'm moving agents around the buildng. Carpet is being ripped up. I'm getting someone to suck up the water. Builder is giving me advice about how to treat the situation. And yes, I went to a dear friend's office for a minute just to break down and CRY, so I could GET IT OUT. A small malady in the grand scheme of things, but still - sigh.

But at any rate, in case you haven't HEARD the Fun Monday gig, I have a simple, fun assignment in voyeurism, should you choose to accept your mission (And I DO hope you accept, b/c I'm REALLY needing some FUN this Monday!):
I wanna see your CAR! It can be your current car, the first car you ever had, maybe your first new car with that new-car smell, a car you wrecked once, or even the dream car you would drive - given all the money in the world! Oh - and if you have a truck, SUV, lawnmower, whatever the local authorities allow you to drive, let's see it!

willowtree said...

Count me in.

Kila said...

Sure, count me in. You'll be amazed what three boys can do to a family car ;)

Melissa said...

I am so in. Finally, a post not about my bathroom tile or margarita buckets. :)

Sayre said...

I'll play... and Kila? You'll be amazed at what ONE boy can do to a family car!

Beccy said...

Fab idea, count me in.

Amy W said...

What a great idea...I am in!

wolfbaby said...

i'm in.

mjd said...

I am so in.

ChrisB said...

My car is so NOT exciting but I'm in.

Lisa said...

Count me in, this should be an easy one for a summer-busy mom like me!

Tiggerlane said...

You are all duly added - thanks so much for particpating! MORE! MORE!

Karmyn R said...

Count my site in (I'll be gone - but my guest blogger will be there with something good!)

Debbie said...

I'd like to do this one, please. :)

Shauna said...

Put me down and HOPE THAT I REMEMBER! Now - we have 5 vehicles - do u want all of them or just the one I drive????? hehe. . .

Robin said...

Yuck...I do not like this topic, Tiggerlane, because as a mom of five, I don't love my MINIVAN...

But I'll play because it's just too fun to miss a Fun Monday (and I'll have to miss the following week 'cause we'll be out of town...).

Tiggerlane said...

Thanks you all! You have been added...I'm so excited!

susan said...

I'd love to play!

RAFFI said...

i'm not so sure my current mode of transport would be acceptable... the nyc subway system. particularly the 4train. thx for the '30secs' referral... i never knew leto was the frontman. he was awesome in 'requiem for a dream'. oh, they emulate the shining... and do it very well might i add.

Tiggerlane said...

susan - welcome to the playground.

raffi - your mode is FINE! Heck, around these parts, farm equipment is considering high-class transportation. And you're welcome - did you know Shannon - th drummer, is Leto's brother? And you are right about the movie - AWESOME. I'm adding you, unless you protest MIGHTILY.

Julie said...

I'm in! (www.abbilyeverafter.com)

Debs said...

Count me in! :)

Pamela said...

IN

Tiggerlane said...

Whew - everyone in so far...and I think I got the links right.

And Shauna - all FIVE is fine!! Have I EVER participated in a Fun Monday without "over-doing" it? GO FOR IT!

(I'm actually hoping to see raffi's submission the most!)

theotherbear said...

I'm in.

And by the way, your autoplay music videos really seem to stuff up my browser, freezes it. not sure why.

Tiggerlane said...

otherbear - neither one are set on autoplay - that is SO weird. What kind of browser are you using? Mine shows that you have to press the button to make them play.

Then again, TWO videos with Jared and his brother playing at the same time would cause me some SERIOUS overload...I just might faint from drooling....

Skye said...

Ahh fun Mondays. I have missed them.

My car is not nearly interesting enough to deserve a post dedicated to it. (British and blue and really really old...)

Really I just stopped by to say hello. Been a while, but you're picking up the blogging habit very nicely.

See you again soon!

Robinella said...

I'll play even though you may have seen a snippet of my new van in my Hotter n Hades post. I'll have to see what I can come up with.

daddy d said...

I am in, also.

Tiggerlane said...

skye - good to see you again - if you change your mind, and want to be added, let me know!

robinella and daddy d - you're on the list!

min said...

Oh, me, me, me, me! I want to play!

Jodi said...

Count me in for next week...

Kaytabug said...

I'll take a spin!

therimmers said...

I wanna play!!!! Tell me what to do!!!

Tiggerlane said...

Girls, you are added!

And Tonya - All you have to do is find a photo of your car - or the car you'd like to drive, and then post your "homework" to your blog on Monday, July 16th!! Then, all the participants will be viewing your blog and leaving comments - it can be your real car, or a funny car you see in Korea - any kind of car! Just tell a little story to go with it, and say something on your blog about "Fun Monday!" You can see my previous "Fun Monday" posts for examples - I'll add you to the list! You'll be surprised how many people will come see your blog!

Everyone should check out Tonya's blog anyway - it's really neat!

bichonpawz said...

Hand UP! Count me in! Thanks for hosting!

my4kids said...

Tiggerlane said...

Thank you, ladies! You are added - and I can't wait to see your cars! Mine may be under water by then, so I have to take a photo QUICK!

Christine said...

Cout me in.

JennieBoo said...

I'm in, sorry it's taken so long to respond....

Happy weekend, Tiggerlane!

ChrisB said...

wow that painter is absolutely terrific, it's so clever the way he creates pictures like that.

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

I'll try - even though you've already seen my car!

Mercy's Maid said...

What a neat idea. I'm here thanks to Pamela at The Dust Will Wait. She posted a comment on a new blogging challenge I started and said it would make a great Fun Monday theme. I'd be happy to host it sometime if you need a hostess.

theotherbear said...

That's odd about the autoplay or not. I have the same thing happen at work or at home. Using Firefox. I've worked out now that as soon as I open your blog I rush over to the music and press pause, then I am ok.

Hannah said...

Count me in :)

JennieBoo said...

Dan Dunn is amazing! I came back to watch the you tube and was blown away.

WOW!

I can't paint right side up!

Happy Sunday!

Mercy's Maid said...

Hi, Tiggerlane!

If my post is close enough to the theme (mine is just the trunk for my new blogging challenge), please add a link to me.

Tiggerlane said...

christine, jennieboo, artist, hannah and mercy's maid - you're all IN! Thanks for participating!

theotherbear - well, maybe firefox is the issue - I'm on internet explorer. Bizarre!

chrisb and jennieboo - I was amazed when I saw it, too!

Raven_Dase said...

I'm in also! Sunni

gawilli said...

I'm in, finally! Thanks for hosting.

sallad.net said...

Tiggerlane said...
