Friday Fill-Ins


1. There is no need for you to eat all of that buttery movie popcorn all by yourself.

2. Where in the heck did the dog drag my underwear?

3. Exercising, reading, building community, organizing my entire house and spending time with loved ones was my goal, but blogging is all I managed to do.

4. Prospects for my internship at Vogue are looking dim.

5. “Grease!” is the message. No, wait a minute. “Grease is the word, is the word that they heard; it's got groove, it's got meaning ...."

6. Simplicity and tranquility are perpetually elusive.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to working on a mystery novel about ancient Egypt, tomorrow my plans include visiting a new Ikea store in Cincinnati and Sunday, I want to spend time with friends!

OOOO, girl, I wish I could join you for the new Ikea, I have never been in one! But I have to say, I don't really like to share my food, especially my movie popcorn. lol Perhaps that is an only child thing but the popcorn is just a me thing. lol
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!

cj said...

Geez... is that ALL you managed to do??

And my dog likes to drag my clothes all over the house but seems content to leave my undies alone. I'll take it.

Have a good weekend.

Gwendolyn said...

Everyone tells me that I need to have an Ikea experience. Am I missing something really wonderful? I feel as if I am totally out of the loop. LOL

The Holistic Knitter said...

I am SO with you on number 2! Where do they take the underwear to?
My new puppy has already 'eaten' two of my bras!!

Mocha with Linda said...

Thanks to your #5, that's on my brain now.

Dena @ Green Acres said...

It looks like we have the same dog...or at least they must be related.
Also, I see the button I gave you is working. You are now breaking out into random musical songs. Welcome to the dark side. hehehe

Charli and me said...

LOL Great answers!

Kelley said...

I love your answers Linda, they are sooo you!! By the way I stole your Yearbook idea for my post today but I linked back to you. I hope you don't mind, it was just too cool not to do!

Have a super weekend...

skoots1mom said...

hhhhhmmmmmm, maybe an ancient-egypt-mystery MUSICAL! I know how you love musicals...imagine it...

After November, Pres. Bush may want to try out for the video promoting your musical.... http://politicalhumor.about.com/od/funnypictures/ig/100-Funny-Pictures/Bush-s-Malaria-Dance.htm

There could be songs about grilled kebabs and baba ghanough...just the words alone sound like a song waiting to happen...

filming would be hot...so you'd have to do a lot of shooting on the nile http://www.ehabweb.net/nileart.html

oooooohhhh, and Pierce could play your lead!! 'cause i know we "like" to hear him sing : )

Debbie said...

So now I have this picture in my head of Zoe with her head through the leg of a pair of undies making them her superdog cape as she runs through the house...

and the tune from Grease (A MUSICAL)playing over and over in my mind.

Desert Diva said...

You answer for #2 is just too funny! I just finished reading "Marley and Me."

Have a good Friday and a great weekend!

Rachel said...

This is the funniest thing I've read all day!

Gill said...

teabird said...

I can't wait to read your novel! Good luck with it.

Here's mine.

bundle-o-contradictions said...

LOL #3!!
Happy Friday. :)

Edwina at The Picket Fence said...

#2 too funny, reminds me of my Chole. She use to run around stealing any article of clothing that was left laying around (usually hubby's undewear and socks- go figure?)lol
Have a good weekend.

"MoodyBlue" Jodi said...

#2 is my favorite!

The whole "writing, writing" answers are because I'm taking a creative writing course. I'm freshening up my writing skills because I'm writing a "novella" (or novel depending on how long it gets).

Justice Jonesie said...

I love #3, I do that all the time!

Fran said...

#3 seems to be mine too. :)

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Fran

Becky said...

I love Friday fill ins... you always make me laugh.

PopArtDiva said...

What, share my popcorn?? LOL! Had to laugh at the dog dragging your underwear to a hiding place - my Yorkipoo, Pixel, likes to hide my slippers.

Thanks for stopping by The Pop Art Diva Retro Pop Culture Blog!

Ballerina Girl said...

Grease is the word!
Better get that dog to find those undies soon!

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

Okay, I'm sorry if someone has already pointed this out, but I just did NOT have enough time in this 24 hour block to read ALL THOSE comments!! :-)

But, I am sure I just saw you bust out a song, of a musical nature...hmmmm...it's starting to rub off on you, isn't it?

Kim @ My Journey said...

Too Fun! Have a great weekend!!!

Mindy said...
