THURSDAY NIGHT: First of all, I want to say thanks for caring and throwing out guesses as to the cause of my Smurfed up daughter's blue fingernails. (Imagine if someone brand new here just read that sentence.) She is apparently OK, but the fingertips are still a little sore. We had our piano tuned today, and she's been playing like a fiend in there this evening, so maybe that has been the cause all along. If so, she will surely show up blue again in the morning. Plus, they are playing basketball in gym, so maybe that was the cause. But it all came and went in one day. ?? Only one of you, Mocha Lid, mentioned Blue Christmas, which was clever, but no one called us the Blue Man Group, which disappointed me, a little.
Here’s another installment for Susanne’s “Friday’s Fave Five” meme at Living to Tell the Story:
1. Forget "raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens …" and just gimme the Pedi Egg. I bought one and did not slice and dice myself like I did before. I highly recommend this little doohickey, as Gayle would say, and if you get a pink one at Wowmart, part of the proceeds to goes help fight breast cancer.
2. Reddi Whip. I’m addicted to this stuff. I’ve been squirting it directly into my mouth when no one's looking because—hold on there, Miss Priss—I have my own personal can. As a matter of fact, I happen to be drinking hot chocolate with a big mound of it on there as I write this. Wish you were here. Not. Because that means more Reddi Whip for me. Sorry. Can't help myself.
3. The movie “A Christmas Carol,” with either George C. Scott or Reginald Owen. I actually prefer Reggie in tne 1938 film, which I first saw as a teenager and did not know it was a Dickens story. I'm surprised I lasted through the end of it back then since there were no cute boys in this flick, because Tiny Tim cute was not the kind of cute boy I was into at that time.
4. My mommy’s birthday was Wednesday. I got her a huge pink poinsettia because she likes pink. I meant to get her a small pink poinsettia, but I sent Jorge to purchase it, and he brought one back big enough to be a corsage for Elton John, 3 ft tall, 2 feet wide.
5. A Christmas celebration with my Girls’ Group. We are posed (except for me) with glasses that I painted for each friend, as close a portrait as I could get with stick figures and paint pens. It was worth the effort to hear them laughing over their caricatures. After we looked at them all, we each signed the back side of each other's glasses. They are personalized and dated 2008.
Here is Leslie with me and her glass below. Note the Sarah Palin glasses.
Here are a couple of others.
