RaNdOm FuN

Don't know if you caught NPR's 28-second story about George Washington's overdue library books on Monday morning, but it made me laugh. New York City's oldest library says George Washington is still on the hook for a pair of books — due Nov. 2, 1789.

Here is your writing prompt for this week. Come back tomorrow and link us to your published post. Have fun!

1. Ever had any run-ins with the "library police?"

2. Do you have a special organizational plan and place for wrapping paper, gift bags, etc., or do you just purchase whatever you need as you give gifts?

3. Have you ever been in (first-hand witness) a natural disaster?

4. What's your favorite Barry Manilow song?

5. What's the best costume you've ever worn?

6. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus?

7. What's your favorite breakfast food?

8. Have you ever purchased anything from an infomercial?

9. Have you ever crawled through a window?

10. Do you believe in love at first sight?

11. How man pairs of jeans do you own?

12. If someone were going to bake a cake to honor/represent you, what would it be? (Think creatively, like Duff and Crew on "Ace of Cakes.")

So did the library say how much his bill was? Is his family responsible for it? Heh.

Thanks for the questions, yes I saw the item about George Washington in our local paper The Northern Star, today, the books due Nov 2. 1789. I would like to have seen how much the fines would have been.

And amazing to think Australia was only in the second year of European settlement then.

What a fun set of questions!

Okay, I'm not on FB, and your little tease over there is just mean. Your status is "wishes she had never let herself even taste..." WHAT WAS IT?!

I like these questions. I've enjoyed getting my answers ready today. See you early tomorrow!
