MamaKat's Prompts:

1.) If you were starring on American Idol TONIGHT and HAD to sing, what song would you choose and why.
2.) Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today.
3.) I just asked Pat to help me with a writing prompt so here's his: "What do you think about the NBA All Star game"...blech.
4.) What's your number one pet peeve? Develop a punishment for anyone caught in the act.
5.) Write about something mean you did to a sibling growing up

These are tough. There isn't one sticking out saying "Pick Me" this week and I have a dentist appointment this morning which is stressing me out. I will type and drink while preparing for my appointment so I am not responsible for anything said in this post.

1.) If I were to sing a song on American Idol, it would be Eternal Flame by The Bangles. Remember that song? I used to sing it on the phone with my hubby when we were just friends...and teenagers. We spent hours on the phone. I sang the song and he said I was the best singer ever. So I would sooooooooo win the whole damn thing. If my future husband said I was good, I must be.

2.) Here is a picture of me right this second. Be prepared for hotness my friends. I am just naturally hot without makeup, a shower and in sepia tone.

I may be drinking but I know enough not to take a picture of me before showering and putting concealer on my under eye dark circles.

Joke folks. I do not drink at all. Just apple juice and Kool Aid.

3.) NBA All Star Game??? Huh? I am Canadian. Hockey I can discuss......basketball.....ummm.....no.

4.) My number one pet peeve is a tough one because I have so many. I really do hate seeing signs that are not spelled correctly. If you have a business and have signs out for the public to see then take the time to make sure it is all spelled correctly. Is that too much to ask? And if you aren't sure when making the sign or writing your daily menu on the chalkboard, then get out a dictionary or a computer and check. It is that simple. I am totally turned off from entering your business if I see spelling errors. Your punishment for this behaviour would be handwriting a 10, 000 word essay and having it proofread by someone who actually knows how to spell. If one error was found, you would have to do another one until it was perfect. Take that.

Oh yeah, and I hate it when people say "prostrate" instead of "prostate".

I also hate it when people on the Biggest Loser advertise products and try to make it look like it all wasn't set up.

Moving on..........

5.) The last one is impossible to do because I was an angel and never did anything mean to my little brother. People can only wish they grew up with a sister like me because I was nice, caring and always took the other persons feelings into consideration. Many $$$ in therapy has taught me that.

Happy Thursday y'all. I am off to brush my teeth and drink a bottle of mouthwash.

Visiting from Mama Kat's ....

First, so weird, I have a dentist appointment this morning too! I am just getting ready to go but thought I could sneak in some quick blogging. I try to visit some blogs I've never been to before on every Writer's Workshop. Something about your post must have drawn me here as we seem somewhat similar. I too despise spelling errors on signs. If you can't do the sign right, I have small hopes for your business acumen. (Of course, now I am scared that I will make a spelling error in this comment.) And yeah...prostrate and prostate -- too very different things. Don't mix them up. I would never see a doctor who mixed those up!

I enjoyed your post! : )

I love that song!

You should check out my blog. Our pet peeve and explanation is practically identical.

If I had a dentist appointment coming up, I don't think I would be able to blog! - I would be quivering in the corner waiting for that unlucky person to have to drag me there. - I hate going to the Dentist!

Girl, you look good! That is one way to showcase yourself. ;)

So, so funny... Your pet peeves.... The first thing is this; mine change daily because I have so many and it's based on how I'm feeling and what has happened that day! Second, my calendar today shows a guy (obviously the owner) standing outside his store dumfounded because no one is coming into his store.... The store is a "SIGN" store and above it is the "sign" that states "GRAND OPENNING!". Finally, the lady across from me. Her husband has prostate cancer and we talk about it all the time, but she always calls is prostrate. For weeks I thought, am I saying it wrong? For sure, she would say it correctly... her husband has it for Gods sake, so she should know. But she DOESN'T apparently and so we go... peeve! I hope that one of your pet peeve's isn't people that go on and on in the comment section of your blog?

I am totally with you on the signs---I always wonder if I should point these things out or would they not be so grateful for my expertise?

I am a huge fan of under-eye concealer.

Probably, I bug everyone because I am such a horrible speller. Even with spell check, sometimes, things just come out wrong. But I don't spell or make signs or anything like that for a living.

My daughter had a dentist appointment this morning. I hope yours went well.

I love most Bangles songs. Great choice.

I can't believe the number of people who can ignore spelling errors and correct grammatical structure. Unfortunately, I don't think there is any punishment that will get through to them.

Yeah, I don't like that product placement either! Awful!
