Low on Brain Juice

Because I can't think of even one moderately interesting thing to talk about today... I give you:


Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim?

The only thing I can think of is the time, oh about twenty years ago when a bunch of us when to a friends house in the middle of the night and did chalk outlines in his driveway to make it look like a murder scene. Really, I'm not into practical jokes because I hate having them played on me, and I'm all about "do unto others".


What do your salt and pepper shakers look like?

They have a Southwestern design and match my dishes--a wedding gift from 11 1/2 years ago! If I wasn't so lazy, I'd get up a take a photo. But I am, so I'm not.


Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)?

WalMart. I need to pick up a couple of books for The Long and the Short of It. And DD will not be with me, so it's the perfect time to pick up the stuff for her Easter basket, and maybe even her birthday.

What? That's not what you meant?

Main Course

What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry?

I sold Avon up until just a few months ago, and when I quit, I stocked up on their Vita Moist hand cream. I love that stuff... nice and thick, doesn't leave an oily mess and has virtually no scent. I'm really sensitive to scents, they typically give me a wicked headache, so I try to keep to the fragrance-free stuff.

When I run out of that? I'll either find me an Avon lady or hit the stores and see what's out there. I sold Avon for almost ten years, so I have no clue what other stuff exists!


Make up a dessert, tell us its ingredients, and give it a name.

Hmmm.... Make peanut butter cookies with oatmeal, throw in some cocoa and chocolate chips and then drizzle with melted chocolate when they've cooled. A name? How about "YUMMY"?


Now, the daily Blatant Self-Promotion:

My tour stop today is: The Long and the Short of It Romance Reviews -- I'm in the author spotlight talking about character quirks. And I'm giving away a free download of any of my stories, including but not limited to, "One Love For Liv". Come on by!

My daily contest is here.


Today's random quiz:

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Baby Got Back"

You're a total show off who is willing to risk looking like a fool to get a few laughs.

In fact, you'll go for the cheap laugh if you need to... because it's better than no reaction!

Your friends can count on you to get a party started, and you'll party hard until you can't remember their names.

You're charismatic, charming, and a total character. With or without a few drinks in you.

You might also sing: "I Touch Myself," "Oops I Did it Again," or "My Humps"

Stay away from people who sing: "Candle in the Wind"

Hmmm.. I don't know the words to ANY of those songs, so I'd look pretty stupid up there on stage humming along! LOL...

Has anyone else noticed that since I switched over to the new blogger layout thingie, that all my posts are squished together? Is there anyway to fix that??

Welcome back to the Friday Feast!

Dru said...

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Margaritaville"

You are a true party animal, but your style is mild and chill.
Kicking back with a few friends and a few drinks is all you need to be happy.

You certainly don't feel pressured to be a part of any party scene. In fact, you avoid trendier spots.
You've been known to kick loose anywhere and everywhere. All you need is a cooler.

You might also sing: "Gin and Juice," "Love Shack," and "Red Red Wine"

Stay away from people who sing: "Wind Beneath My Wings"

This is so not true

The chalk outline bit is funny. I'm sitting here giggling as I "see" it in my head. Can you imagine waking up to that?

great Feast!

Mel said...

Have to agree, Sarita, the chalk line thing would freak me out. Great pratical joke.

Brandy said...

We do the chalk outline thing at Halloween. *g* That would be a good Practicle joke.

Enjoy your trip to WW!

Have a good day!
