This-n-That Thursday

Just drivel:
  • Today has dawned grey and foggy and drizzly. This is wonderful news.
  • I came in second place at Bridge last night. This, too, is wonderful news.
  • I had my car serviced yesterday, and while I waited in the fancy little waiting area, a woman stared at me. For two hours. It was awful.
  • Why do dogs have to sniff everything?
  • One week from today, the coven of Blisters reconvenes on the Chesapeake Bay.
  • I have to give my elevator speech in one hour and I am still in my pajamas. Not good.
  • Why does printer ink cost so much?
  • My parrot attacked my hair yesterday as I bent down to feed him.
  • I love those Viactiv calcium and vitamin D chewy things.
  • That eyeglass commercial where the woman is calling her cat to come to bed and a raccoon comes in makes me laugh every time. At this rate, a Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movie would probably send me over the edge. I need a job.
  • I wonder how roasted parrot tastes.....

Wonderful news for me, I love reading your "This-n-That Thursday"!

Caution Flag said...

How bright IS your hair? I've heard the brighter, the better for birds.

I LOVE that commercial,too.

I am just a little jealous of your blister coven. Next year are the words to which I cling.

Maybe you should have gone over and sniffed the woman in the waiting room. Dora would have been SO proud!

Let the Blister Coven convene!!!

Emom said...

Oh my you do make me laugh.....the parrot needs the job....and I am going to buy some Viactiv today, as my Dr. told me yesterday to increase both Calcium and D....smiles.

Hours of being stared at. . . . hmmm. That normally makes me do strange and unexpected things. I am glad you had more self-control.

LL Cool Joe said...

I find the butt sniffing that dogs tend to do very off putting. :D

Ellen said...

Tastes like chicken!!!

Hang in there - blogfest is just around the corner. Wishing I could go, but ....

Joanie said...

Staring is plain rude....maybe she was "admiring" you...:-)

TSannie said...

How was your speech??
BHE has a good idea - next time you're stared at, go sniff the starer. That'll cause a rukus!

Keetha said...

Congrats on your mad bridge skilz and on that rain!

You can practice your elevator speech on us.

These Nine Acres said...

Send that drizzle this way.
Lady at the service place = spooky.
I am bummed I can't make it to Blogfest.
Get dressed.
Parrot = ouch.
Delicious.

Roasted parrot tastes like roasted goose - and they both taste like chicken.

What's the elevator speech?

Daryl said...

Elevator speech?

And I hear tell you'll be by to get me BEFORE 7 ayem next Thursday? I will be ready and waiting patiently with bagels

The Incredible Woody said...

Maybe you should've gone over and sniffed her:)

Magpie said...

You have a parrot? Huh.

Printer ink is like razor blades.

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

You need to give that bird a cracker! I have a butt sniffing dog at my house....ask BHE.
BLOGFEST....YES!!
<><

Country Girl said...

I can see all this happening and am trying not to laugh but some of it's really funny.

imbeingheldhostage said...

Yay.
Double Yay! Was there money involved?
Weird. Did you think of all the smart alec things you could've said after you got home?
Roasted hair-grabbing parrot probably tastes pretty good with a raspberry sauce.

This is the first time I've heard of a car repair shop having a fancy waiting room. I need to move to your part of the country.

And that lady who was staring? WTF? Maybe you looked like the woman her ex-husband left her for.

Snooty Primadona said...

Roasted parrot? He must have gotten some hair when he attacked, LOL.

I will never understand people who sit & stare (gawk) at you.

Still raining here. My whole body is turning prune-y now.

Sassy said...

I love your lists......make me smile everytime!
