This-n-That Thursday

Wondering...
  • If you just keep your hair in a ponytail, does it stop falling out?
  • Am I the only person who looks twice at a Toyota in a 4-Way-Stop?
  • The hair, that is.
  • Do you have to buy organic cucumbers?
  • Why are passport pictures shot on a wide angle lens?
  • What did all our beautiful grandmothers do without Retin A?
  • Is everybody done with tax stuff? I'm not.
  • How high do reading glasses go?
  • Dear Southern Blisters, does anyone have a good Lemon Icebox pie recipe? The kind without meringue?
  • Why do dreams get really weird when the seasons change?
  • Has anybody had goat mozzarella?
  • The Music City Marathon is in 6 weeks.
  • What was I thinking?

I wish I had the cure for hair falling out....at this rate, I will be bald in a week!

Taxes? All done!

Goat cheese? I've had all different kinds, but never mozzarella. My favorite is smoked cheddar! But oh my is it ever expensive.

ummm i dont know... somehow i doubt it... I look at all toyotas with a shade of doubt and fear...Evidently because all i ever is is organic...cause passport photo takers are asses... oh no sorry thats not it... lived long happy lives...yes taxes are done will pay april 15th... and not a damn second before...GO GET RX glasses they are so much easier and help with the continuation of needing of magnifiers... Lemon ice box... hummm no but if you find one tell me too ok.... my dreams are always weird and even weirder when i have to go pee... goat mozzerella... should be ok.. I dunno WHAT you were thinking i rarely KNOW what I am thinking... HI DORA :) its nappy time...

It would really suck if that ponytail fell out while running, wouldn't it. And no, it doesn't stop the hair from coming out-- I can swear on that one. Are you molting? Maybe it's a sign that summer is near?

Daryl said...

My advice if you want to keep your hair is go ask your doctor for HRT .. the pros seriously outweight the cons, I know, I have done copious research and am on them.

Taxes? Bwahahaaa. Have you met my husband? Nuff said.

Want company in TN?

I snorted at number 2. Not in a ha-ha-funny way, but in an OH MY GOD YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD SAY THAT AND EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT way.

Trisha said...

Taxes . . . ugh! I am glad that Hubby handles all of that stuff for me. He really IS a great guy!

The Incredible Woody said...

If we are still in town, I will be on the sidelines at the MCM:)

My hair is finally coming back! After a year. I am still working on my taxes. Love the goat cheese and most any kind of cheese!
Take Daryl's advice on the HRT. I am a fan too.

Cucumbers are in the middle: http://www.foodnews.org/fulllist.php

I think ponytails pull out more hair - it breaks around the rubber band.

Joanie said...

Deep thoughts, I must think hard..

Have a great great day!!

Keetha said...

Goat mozarella. Now that's a new one on me. I'm intrigued.

My hair's been falling out for about ten years. I'm surprised I have any on my head. So let me know if that ponytail thing works out.

noble pig said...

I haven't even started my taxes so y'all get to hear me complain again this year.

Gayle said...

.........I am follower #100. I have never been #100. Pretty fine day if you ask me!

Caution Flag said...

I'll say nothing about Toyota. Nothing.

I guess I don't have much to say about anything else either.

Run, MPM, run. I'm cheering for you. Can you hear me??? I'm really loud.

TSannie said...

TRAIN BABY TRAIN!!!

Emom said...

My brain never stops either....smiles.

If a ponytail does, in fact, keep the hair from falling out, I will be sporting a pony for the rest of my days. Mine falls out at an alarming rate!

And what WERE you thinking? (GAH!) But...you CAN do it and you WILL do it. Or not, if you don't want to. Report back what you decide to do so I'll know whether to be supportive and cheer you on, or never mention it again. :)

As for the Toyotas, when I see one EVER, I wonder why the hell the people are driving it. I sure wouldn't take that chance!

kim-d said...

Re:

"mine falls out..." The hair, I mean. :)

"I sure wouldn't take the chance..." Because I am a weeney-wussy when it comes to runaway cars. But that's just me, no offense to those Toyota drivers who are less weeney-wussy-like than me.

What a funny question list. I love it. Pony tail...I'd think the stress from band would make your hair fall out more...no?

Audrey at Barking Mad said...

LMAO! No you are not the only person who looks twice at the Toyota at a 4-way stop! I thought I was the only one who did that! And yeah, I do buy organic cucumbers because Gaby eats them like lollypops! Seriously, it's the only green thing I can get her to eat!

And mmmm, lemon icebox pie. I'm gonna go look for a recipe. Sounds so good!

Karen Deborah said...

hummm you know what i did to my hair. Goat cheese tastes great in any form.Are you serious about lemon ice box pie? A southern lass like you?
I'd ask Noble Pig.

Ellen said...

If you just keep your hair in a ponytail, does it stop falling out?
Don't know - I haven't had enough hair for a pony tail since 1975!

Am I the only person who looks twice at a Toyota in a 4-Way-Stop?
I drive one!

Do you have to buy organic cucumbers?
Only if you want to spend more money.

Why are passport pictures shot on a wide angle lens?
So you look your best - not!

What did all our beautiful grandmothers do without Retin A?
Don't know, they were both dead long before I was born.

Is everybody done with tax stuff? I'm not.
Not even close!

How high do reading glasses go?
At the eye doc's office - i think pretty high.

Dear Southern Blisters, does anyone have a good Lemon Icebox pie recipe? The kind without meringue?
Don't like lemon pie but if I had a recipe, I'd send it along.

Why do dreams get really weird when the seasons change?
Good question

Has anybody had goat mozzarella?
Don't think so.

The Music City Marathon is in 6 weeks.
What was I thinking?
You weren't. That's the problem - training in the winter. In Connecticut. Maybe not such a good idea!!!

Love your topics.

Karen said...

Did you see my tweet this evening about a Prius being behind me? I was nervous!! Thankfully survived the drive. BTW tweeted @ a light not while driving, srsly!
Taxes not a nice picture in my house...bad bad bad!

I forgot to ask my mother about the icebox pie recipe but as it turns out she wouldn't have been able to give me a coherent answer anyway due to a cat emergency.

BUT, the ponytail does keep hair from falling out. It does not, however, keep hair from growing on your face, nor does it keep the hair on your scalp from turning coily gray. It may, however, distract attention from efforts to shave eyebrows, especially when those efforts go hideously awry.

Run, MPM, run!

Grandma J said...

retin A burns my skin. I don't like anything "goat".

What's a ponytail?

Pass the lemon pie please. Now it's my bedtime. Can you tell I'm behind schedule?

Treasia Stepp said...

I've had lots of great goat mozzarella.

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

Taxes are done (but waiting to send in the state return because we owe), Toyotas actually frighten me now, I don't care whether my cukes are organic or not, and my hair isn't long enough for a ponytail. And if you do get a good recipe for that pie, I'd love to see it! I love lemony desserts.
