Happy Friday Chickens!

Thystle created her own meme, which you may steal on her blog, or from here if your Mother in Law reads your blog too, and you need to edit all the porn references.

1. Three items you would take to a desert island and why. Don't be a loser and say "a boat" either, ok?
* Maryanne's recipe for Coconut Cream Pie, preferably tucked into the back pocket of the Professor's chinos.
* Time-Life's DO IT YOURSELF library including: Do It Yourself Dentistry and Do It Yourself Raft Building.
*A sweater. I've heard it gets cold there at night.

2. If you could only save three people from zombies who they would be?
*I have three people in my immediate family, so duh, of course I would save Johnny Depp.
* I would NOT save Anne Coulter, Howard Stern or Lindsay Lohan. I know many would be grateful.
* I don't care if that was not the question.

3. If you had to smell like a food, which three foods would you prefer?
* I get a migraine smelling strong smells, so I'm gonna have to go with blue food coloring. Currently I smell like some type of super secret dog food that only canines can smell, and for some reason it seems to gather in my lap.

4. Three books you wish you'd never read?
* American Psycho. Good Lord that man is twisted.
* Map of the World, Jane Hamilton. Several hundred pages of misery and sadness, I don't need a book for that.
* The Shack-I've said this before: if your young daughter goes missing and you had an opportunity to meet and speak to God how many days would you spend discussing theology instead of asking where she is?

5. Three biggest lies your parents told you?
* I don't think my parents ever really lied to me about much, so I will change this to the three biggest lies we are currently telling our Spawn:
* That nice camp in Upstate New York was full and had no spots left.
* Chirpie died of natural causes
* We are holding your allowance in a special account somewhere.

6. Three favorite band names (real, or "If we had a band we should call it...")?
*Above Average Weight Band
*The Band Formerly Known as Sausage
* Are These My Pants?

7. Three things that make you go "ew"?
* slugs. Especially if you step on them at night time in your bare feet while you are walking around the beach house and they squoosh up between your naked toes and....omg I need to go vomit.

8. What are your three biggest addictions?
* Tea with Milk and Sweet and Low made with deli water. About 16 cups a day.
* Black cardigans. Once wore one everyday for three years in a row. This season, broke out into sage green.
* Google Analytics.

9. Chicken and waffles are ever so tasty; three food combos so wrong they're right?
* Peanut butter and jelly sandwich with crushed freetos.
* Saltines and green grapes
* Burger King Whopper and a Chocolate Slim Fast.

10. Three bloggers you would make out with?
In deference to Nonnee, and despite the fact that I know Ashton Kutcher twitters a lot, I'm gonna change this to Three Things Bloggers do that sometimes Annoy Me.
* Answer their commentors in their comments section MULTIPLE TIMES. So it looks like they have gotten 68 responses to a post, but it's really because they write a response to Every Single Comment.
* Write monthly newsletters to their daughters
* Fill in memes. Ooops: that would be me. Maybe I should have just said I would do Thystle.

Slugs is only one thing. You owe us two more.
I'm not going to do this meme because I think you have already set the bar too high.
And I'm crabby.

Jennifer said...

"Write monthly newsletters to their daughters"...I am laughing so hard I think I just peed a little.

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

I'm guessing you wouldn't save Heather Armstrong from a zombie? I expect you to answer that question with a comment.

Miss Thystle said...

but what if the commentors ask you questions? Huh? then what? Are you supposed to leave them hanging? WHAT IF IT'S IMPORTANT?

I had never looked at the Google Analytics data before you mentioned it. In fact I didn't know it was free to the public. I do know that I have my javascript blocker (firefox add-on) set to forbid google analytics, so I'm not sure that I ever show up on your traffic radar. Does it tell you if someone has ever surfed in from Because, uh, that wasn't me.

I'm putting the anal back in analytics.

I may very well have waken the baby with my laughter just now - thanks a lot!

I don't think that was a deference to Nonnee. I think it was a political move.

FTR, I put you on my make out list. I don't play politics. :p

Peanut butter and jelly sandwich with crushed freetos.I get that!! I've never eaten them together, but I have put potato chips on PB&J.

How about Reece's peanut butter cups with hot, salty popcorn?

Nonnee said...

Oh for heaven's sakes - forget about me - talk amongst yourselves!!!

Nonnee said...

Also - it might imterest you to know that our sons all declare that I taught them all the off color words they know.

PearlsOfSomething said...

Aw. Now I want to put Nonnee on my make out list!

kwr221 said...

Doesn't *anyone want to make out with me?


Well, for all I know Nonnee might, but I'll never know since her blog is private.

Debbie said...

Lorrie, you always bring a smile to my face. Even if you won't make out with me.

Fe said...

Sorry I haven't been commenting much lately.... but just know that your posts are often the highlights of my day!

And I wanna adopt Nonnee. Puhleeeesssee!

Spatula said...

...I answer my comments multiple times.

Multiple times.

Multiple times.

Lorrie - I hope business is really booming - in a good way, because you're seriously slacking in your blog duties and I MISS YOU!

I didn't want to read the Shack but I relented because it came so highly recommended by several people. Now I'm in the middle and I guess I'll finish because it's easy but just like with Twilight, I'll be a little annoyed when I'm done. I kept hoping it was really going somewhere but now I know it's not.

Good post, Lorrie. I would be grateful if I never had to hear from Anne Coulter or Howard Stern again.
