Let it Snow!

Let's travel back in time to the good old days of high school! Ah, the memories.... Ok, enough of that.

Wednesday night, the weather man announces that there will be a HUGE snow storm that night. There can be up to 2 feet of snow. So, you decide to skip writing your 10 page research paper (which should have been started last week) and stay up all night watching the "Scream" trilogy.

Out of habit, you wake up at 6:30. It's still dark outside. You creep to the window to look out because you always love the way the moonlight reflects off of newly fallen snow....


There is not a flake of snow on the ground! Oh, boy, are you in trouble!

So what do you do?

  1. Lock the bedroom door, pull the sheets over your head, and ignore your mom when she starts pounding on the door.
  2. Kneel on the floor by the bed, and pray that God will send a huge storm that will drop 4 feet of snow in the next 10 minutes!
  3. Go to school, and tell your teacher your dog ate your research paper.
  4. Run away.
  5. Create your own combo meal.

Thank God It's Friday!

Ok, so it's only Thursday. But I'm fixin' to leave work right now, so in my head, it's Friday because Thursday work is over. (I know... I make no sense!)

I love my job... I'm a Kindergarten teacher. But it still has its ups and downs. I'm sure every job is like that.

Enough about me already!

What would be the best job to have?

I'll give my answer here just because I can... It's MY blog!

In college I worked at the Library Media Center. It was in a building seperate from the main Library. I could go an entire shift without even ONE person coming in! I was basically getting paid to do my homework, watch movies, and play on the internet! It was the best college job a person could ask for! Sometimes my friends would get pizza and soda, and they'd come over to the Media Center and we'd watch movies..... Ah, the memories!

So, what would be your ideal job?

Red Rover, Red Rover

Ah, the good old days when we were all little kids and we'd play silly little games like Red Rover. Sigh!

Well, I guess there's a blog tag game going on. I was tagged by Angela today.

These are the rules:

1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag 5 other people to do the same.

Mine wasn't too long ago, actually. My 23rd post was 101 Dalmations, and my 5th sentence read: "Should I rephrase that into a question?" I know, I know, it isn't very exciting. Maybe I can pretend that my 23rd post is something else... Who would really count all my posts? Yeah, I'll do that...

(Ok, Abigail... act cool and nonchallant) My sentence is "I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame" Yeah, that's it. A moth. (Act cool...)

The five people I tag:

1. Dairn
2. Michaela
3. Clairissa
4. Beth
5. Raj

No tag-backs!

I'm Cooler than ALL OF YOU!

yeah, thats right! i'm bragging, totally!

i posted #101 under the different uses for tissues. hahahhahahahhahahhah!

Hamlet 101

I thought I'd give an easy question this time, since the last question was rather lengthy.

"To be or not to be, that is the question."

If you were given the chance, would you want to be a super-famous celebrity?

A simple "yes" or "no" would suffice as an answer. But feel free to give an explanation.

I am MAD!

I just got a text message on my cell phone from a telemarketer! A TEXT MESSAGE! How ridiculous is that!

Just had to vent!

Go on back to "101 Dalmations" and finish answering that question. Or comment on this. But I really want to see if I can get 101 uses for tissues. Check it out!

101 Dalmations

This is going to be a hard one! You need to be VERY creative, and I'll need a lot of answers. Can you handle it?

I want 101 ways to use a tissue. Should I rephrase that into a question? How about: Can you (as a group) come up with 101 ways to use a tissue. List as many ideas as you have, and continue counting from where it was left off. Confused?... I am!


abigail s. says "1. blow nose"
becky l. says "2. dry tears"
abigail s. says "3........" and so on.

Get it? good! I want 101 uses for a tissue!

Make me proud!

The Greatest Virtue

I've heard that the greatest virtue is Patience. Mainly cuz it's so hard to have! Can I hear an Amen?

There will be a new ? soon. Please be patient! I've been really busy! Maybe ater today or tomorrow.

I love yall for being faithful readers! And I love yall new readers!

Shaken, not stirred

Listening to the radio, there are countless songs refering to a female's "behind." Many of these describe shaking the aforementioned "behind."

The way these singers describe it is very.... creative. But is it original?

One of the more creative ones is "shake your tailfeather." For the longest time, I thought that was so original. Who would think to call a "behind" a tailfeather. Funny, huh?

BUT IT'S NOT ORIGINAL!!! Bet you didn't know that!

Several months ago, I was driving back from a wedding with a friend. We were listening to the radio, and started listening to the Disco hour. (It was really late at night... and we needed something to laugh at!) Well, this song comes on- I laughed my "behind" off! It was called "Disco Duck." It sounded like a cartoon duck (similar to Donald Duck) singing this song. It went something like this, "Disco, disco duck. Try your luck- Don't be a cluck." It was hillarious. But at one point, Disco Duck said "shake your tailfeather." Oh- did I laugh!

So here's the question. Do you think the modern day rappers got "shake your tailfeather" from Disco Duck? Or do you think two seperate people can come up with the exact same phrase?

Bonus points: Can you find any other songs that talk about shaking a tailfeather?

Spring Cleaning

Ah, spring cleaning! (although, its not spring, is it? its fall.) well then, fall cleaning! start putting away those bright, flowery decoration and get ready for something new!

break out those pumpkins! Those darker shades of red, orange, yellow, and brown! get ready to soon have those ghosts and gools for halloween. and cornucopia for thanksgiving. sigh... gotta love thanksgiving. time for tons of turkey! it was nice that some of the Native Americans befriended the Pilgrims and give them a helping hand. Now we can have big feasts in memory.

come on! get ready! head down to your basement and bring out the boxes!


Outpouring from the boxes comes hundreds of cockroaches. What are you going to do with them?

a. Get out the fondue pot! poke a stick thru them and dip them in chocolate. YUM!
b. Unfortunately you have no shoes on, but you decide to stomp on them, letting their guts squish between your toes.
c. Run like a crazy man/woman away from them!
d. Call the police-- this is an emergency after all
e. Set the house on fire. that should kill each one of them

This is a serious problem, not to be taken lightly. Really, what would YOU do in such circumstances?

How much is that doggie in the window?

So, we're going to the store to get a pet.....

So I peruse all the options.... dog, cat, bird, mouse, snake.... too many stinkin choices!

And then I saw it..... I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame.

What pet is better than a pet peeve!

Oh, and I could go on and on about my dear pet peeve. Actually, I decided to buy multiple pet peeves. They're just so darn cute! .... Some big, some small. The biggest is a beast of a pet. I named it "Walmart shopping carts."

I absolutely HATE it when lazy people go do their shopping, take their cart full of junk to the car, unload it, and then leave the cart inthe middle of the parking lot! Or worse... half way in the cart-corral ! How lazy can these people be! Like it'd hurt them to take an extra 5 steps to the corral ! Jeepers! So, yes, that is my biggest peeve of a pet. Can I hear a "what-what" ?

If you had to go to a pet store, what kind of peeve would you buy?

Hmmm... too many to pick from!

Irrational Fears

Okay, true story:

I used to work at a children's camp as a counselor. Of the girls' cabins, two were nasty, two were so-so, and two were great. I was SOOOO happy when I was placed in one of the good cabins. Everything was nice-- not worn down at all.

Well, one day I was in the bathroom doing some cleaning. The toilette paper was just about empty, so I decided to change it. Obviously. Well, as I picked up a new individually-wrapped roll, I proceded to take off that paper covering.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, a SPIDER jumped out. It had been living inside the toilette paper tube.

Ever since, I have been very scared to change toillette paper rolls. When I do, I always pick it up and hold it far away from me, checking to make sure nothing is inside.

So, to the question:

What are YOU afraid of?
-- something that is absolutely ridiculous and shouldnt REALLY be a fear.

Smells like Teen-Spirit

Ah, the joys of Lancaster County, PA! I'm sure that your knowledge of the place consists of things like Amish, horse and buggies, farms, etc. Well, where I live, there are an abundance of these things.

Unfortunately, that sometimes leads to NASTY smells. Yesterday, the farmers decided to fertilize their fields with manure. (I'm not quite sure why-- isnt it the end of planting season? Oh well.) Of course, this meant tons of nasty smells. It's worse than the last time.

What is the worst thing that YOU have ever smelled?

a. Freshly Fertilized Farmland
b. Nasty old chicken coup on a HOT day (smells like rotting meat)
c. A very bad case of B.O.
d. An unclean bathroom (what an understatement!!)
e. Other

Think, think, think

Double vision

The previous posts have all been created by me- Abigail S.
I have since taken on a partner in crime to assist me with this blog. Her name is Becky L.

If you think our writing styles are similar, it's because we are twins. Yup, twins. How fun is that! (ok, not really. I just pretend it's fun)

So, give a warm welcome to Becky L.

There's no such thing

I know teachers always say, "There's no such thing as a stupid question."

Well, my previous post about ignorant people.... that was just steming from a situation that had irritated me. It wasn't the best question I've done. (Though I do think I was quite creative with my link in the word "non-ignorant" because it leads to a quote that says only ignorant people answer every question. I thought I was being very clever. But on a whole, the post was dumb.)

So I'll give you a new question. Although the last question was stupid... I have had some very good ones. Look through them and let me know which one you think is the best! There are only 11 other ones to look through. Have a giggle at them, and let me know which is the coolest.

My vote goes towards "Follow the Cheater" or maybe "I'm feeling a bit melancholy".... Oh! I just can't decide! Help a sister out!

(For my friends who are new to blogger- to find my older questions, go to the right side bar. Under "Archives" there are listed months- click on some of those to see my older posts.)

Ignorance is bliss?

You know how someone will do something, and you think, "How ignorant!" which is sort of an insult towards the person. Sort of like, when someone curses a lot, I think, "This person is so ignorant he can't even think of intelligent words to use."

Or like the other day when I was listening to the radio. The talk show guys were making jokes about Hurricane Katrina and the people that died. And I was appalled. How ignorant!

Now, the question is NOT list situations of ignorant people. The question is:

What are some things that you see that makes you think, "That person is intelligent, NOT ignorant." ? For instance, when a person can find a way to use non-curse words to explain their feelings- that impresses me!

So, what makes a person non-ignorant?
