Cats! I like the discussion and contemplation of cats! Tell us about your cat(s). That's my topic suggestion. It's not deep and I don't care.

rpc said...

Christmas sweaters and a giveaway, all on the same day! I'm impressed. What about anonymous criticism for a topic?

Anonymous said...

Debbie said...

When you leave the topic this open, it is so hard to choose! Let's blog about...fashion don'ts. That sounds like fun.

Le @ third on the right and cold peas said...

hello lorrie ... how about explaining to my five year old why you have a dog in a hot dog bun on your site .... he is most concerned !!

shame on me for reading blogs instead of playin' with the children ....

Sabrae said...

How about something along the lines of New Year's Resoultions:The ins and outs and why they never work ????

Sabrae said...

Or maybe... hmmmm
Crazy People and Christmas mayham: Why you should never leave the house to go shopping

DIY oven ceramics- spread a little MUD around :)

OHN said...

Men....and how we can really love them yet want to smother them in their sleep, sometimes within 1/2 hour of each other. I would love to hear worst husband/man moments.

Bj in Dallas said...

I was thinking worst Christmas presents ever. Like the mismatched silver spoons tied up with used ribbon and handed to me like it was the friggin Jewels from the tower of London. But it was from Aunt R, Super D's sister, and the one I said I needed therapy over.
The one with cankles and a skirt.
The one that told me I had never looked worse. Maybe it wasn't the gift I"M ANGRY about. She makes me swear.

Bj in Dallas said...

I know even better, what would you REALLY like to give someone for Christmas.....good or bad, like an old sucky boss (flaming bag of dog poo on his porch) or a random person (my neighbor a yard makeover)...

man, I could think of a million of these,,,,

Tracy said...

Ooohh... I really like OHN's idea about men, but instead of our hubby's worst/bad moments, how about their SWEETEST moments when they totally surprised you?

Tracy said...

Here's another one: Since 'tis the season that we all are going to holiday parties for work, etc., how about the WORST holiday party experience ever.

Jennifer said...

Here's a topic for you: Your most unrealistic Christmas wish. Something you would love to get as a gift but never would for obvious reasons. I would love to see what people would come up with...

Bj in Dallas said...

KWR, are you DONE? watch out you will be labeled VERBOSE...

I think another good one right up there with regifting and fruitcake would be how many different names we have for our ya-ya's.......

but the corporate people may not like that one. They are no fun.

Bj in Dallas said...

Last one until I think of another.
You know how we make a sentence up using the word verfication word over at Shindig??
Well, turn it on on your blog, and the funniest use of the word will win! and they will all be different!!

Brilliant, I know. You're welcome. Must go now and sing and knit

kwr221 said...

BJ - I've been called worse.


And how come I'm always left out of the reindeer games? No one ever played word verification with me. :::sniff:::

Miss Thystle said...

BJ stole my answer of "Worst Gift EVAH!" So I instead would like to hear your thoughts on funniest holiday memory, you know like that time Aunt Bethany wrapped up her cat! And then cousin eddie kidnapped dad's boss and there was a squierell in our tree. You really rocked a beret that year.

Robot Nine said...

A final, clear and logical reason why I should care where the toilet seat is when you go in the bathroom, and wether women really cannot accept this personal responsibility for their own bathroom usage.

kwr221 said...

BJ - I love ya, but I don't want to know what you call your ya-ya (which I never even heard of)

Sheree said...

If you woke up tomorrow and found you were living in a world without electricity, how would you cope? My family just fricken moves in with me and then shushes me in the morning when I make too much noise. F that.

Sheree said...

e-harmony asks what are the five top things you can't "live" without. Not people. Things.

Sheree said...

The worst thing you've ever done that you've learned to live with and are not ashamed to tell everyone about. If circumstances were the same, would you do it again?

Sheree said...

When is it ok to pick your nose in public?

ddurance said...

Super cheap crafting ideas for fun and gifts.

DrewsMommy said...

How about: Christmas traditions that aren't really traditions, but more like a pain in the ass! Like trying to sneak into your child's room to put a stocking on the bed without being caught... Or Betty Crocker butter streusel coffee cakes that are so hard to find in the grocery stores these days... Or CRANBERRY JUNK!!

SOMETHING HAPPENED SOMEWHERE TURNING said...

Christmas Day gift reactions. Like my one daughter has an unusual way of saying thanx. It comes out of her mouth like: Is that all! Man I hate that.

SOMETHING HAPPENED SOMEWHERE TURNING said...

Favorite 'I'M GOING TO HAVE TO BLOCK YOU' commercial that hasn't been made yet.

Ginny said...

Topic ~ Worst presents ever or worst products to give

The Kitchen said...

OK, the competition is killing me, so I'm thinking a good topic is The Most Competitive Experience you've had - and I know that will bring back some memories.... ;)

danaetc said...

In order to give someone else what they need, you have to give up the material possesion you most love.

What would that possession be?

Who would you give it up for?

What would they have to need?

danaetc said...

How long did it take you to know that your significant other was the One?

Jennifer said...

This is really just for the women: Do you get up before your kids on Christmas morning and do you hair and make up so you look human, or do you just roll out of bed in all your natural glory and say to hell with it?

Dysfunctional family Christmas celebrations

Pantyhose

KLS said...

Specific words that make you want to throw up or gag. (my word is moist)

KAS said...

Lorrie, you are so badass.

Horrible workplace experiences.

KAS said...

Annoying co-worker habits (if you don't have a job, you can list annoying habits of family members or friends but they have to be REALLY bad).

KAS said...

Most embarrassing outdoor experiences (slipped on ice at your winter wedding, etc - SERIOUSLY embarrassing).

KAS said...

Absolute worst gift you have ever been given or have given to someone else (obviously you can pick either).

KAS said...

Worst thing you have ever caught in your child's mouth (if you don't have children, then use your own parents when they were little, your siblings, nieces/nephews, kids you babysat, or stories from your own youth passed on by your obviously loving and considerate parents who would NEVER blackmail you, right?).
