Last Minute Christmas Shopping

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep. The more I give thee, the more I have, For both are infinite.” – Juliet in Romeo and Juliet

I'm on the hunt for hot, hunka-hunka burning love quotes from Shakespeare. Got any (besides the one, above) to share?

A couple of days ago, I'd asked for help with a last name for my newest heroine.

And the winner is GROOVY for her suggestion I make my heroine's last name start with a "D". Sunny-D. Yeah, bay-bee.

Thanks, Groovy. I hope you don't mind that you won nothing but my eternal gratitude. I owe you one.

Actually, I think Groovy did more than share her ideas... she shared her snowblower woes. Yesterday, in the midst of one DOOZY of a snowstorm, our snowblower decided it would no longer throw snow.

This is not good. I mean, it's not like we have a huge driveway, but it's a pain to shovel. I'm tired. I'm sore. I have to scoop the deck and walkway as it is, not to mention a place for the pup to do her business, since the snow is over her head.

I'm just not up to helping with the driveway, too. Hopefully, my very handy DH will figure out what the problem is, since we're expecting MORE snow this weekend. Dear heavens.

At least Judy is giving me a great vacation for Christmas.

And... in the same spirit, I'm going to play her game. I'll use the folks who comment most regularly...

A new fun way to shop for friends (and I stuck to the letter of the law and only used PAGE ONE... tough stuff. I don't understand how Judy got great vacations for all of us...Anyway...)!

1. Go to Google images and type in the screen name of somebody who leaves comments on your blog.

2. From the first page of images pick a Christmas gift for that person.

3. Do it for seven or more people

For Dru --
a hot love affair:


Or a hot wood stove... your choice.



***********

For Melissa --

Shoes!!



***********

For Tori --

Google thought you needed a critter in your life... you choose!




For Allie --

A trip to St. Thomas!! Woot!



For Diane --

A lovely set of horses...



For Groovy --

The coolest car EVAH...



For Ceri --

A tough call. Should I give her a great dog?



Or handcuffs?

Another random quiz:

You Should Be With a Water Sign!

Your best match is a Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces

Why? You crave intimacy and connection in your relationship
And while most guys can't open up enough for you, a Water Sign can
Not that you're whole relationship will be soul gazing
A Water Sign matches your goofy sense of humor - and desire to help others.


Don't tell my Sagittarius husband...OK?

Oh... that game is SUCH fun! I'm absolutely playing it. COOL!

Barrie said...

Ha, ha! I came up with a water sign too. And that's not what I'm married to. Ooops. I won't mention this over Christmas dinner!

Tori Lennox said...

What fun! I'd rather have a horse than a parrot. But I'm somewhat disappointed I didn't get the handcuffs. ROFL!

You Should Be With an Earth Sign!

Your best match is a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn

Why? You like your guys to pamper, wine, and dine you. Not that you're a gold digger, you just like the finer things. An Earth Sign will go all out to woo you - and enjoy doing it. And you'll never find a more trustworthy or loyal match!


Oooo, sounds good to me!

Dru said...

I'll take the hot love affair any time. Yeah Baby!
