I'VE BEEN HONORED TO HOST november 12th's FUN MONDAY!! PLEASE SIGN UP HERE IF YOU'RE WANTING TO PARTICIPATE FOR NEXT WEEK, November 12!!


<><><>

My idea:
THIS IS IT FOLKS! THIS IS YOUR ASSIGNMENT FOR NEXT WEEK'S [november 12th] FUN MONDAY---


Proceed with Caution
Surfing Speed
10 BPH
[that's bytes per hour]

The Fun Monday Game I'm choosing for y'all is this:

MOTHER MAY I

Now before we begin, here are the directions from "Mother Anni"--

You're to take 30 GIANT steps away from your computer. [my suggestion is to do this when you're in the house/apartment by yourself!! I did my homework already, to test my idea before suggesting it, and hubby was ready to commit me!! No really. Besides, we have the nearest loony bin on our speed dial!!]

- 30 GIANT STEPS - IN ANY direction. You may have to make a few turns and pivots so you won't run into any walls or such...don't want any injuries today! WARNING: Avoid any obstacles in the way- if there's a door...open it & continue, if there is a wall...pivot AROUND it. You may end up outdoors! Or perhaps if a small apartment....down the hallway....who knows?!! :::thinking::: "Oh gawd, if there's a pool at the end of your thirty steps, I sure as H E double L hope you can swim!!!!"

After the 30 giant steps, Stop!
TAKE A PHOTO AND/OR NOTE WHAT YOU'RE SEEING!!

Then, take 15 baby steps back.

After the 15 baby steps, Stop!
TAKE A PHOTO AND/OR NOTE WHAT YOU'RE SEEING

LOOK in any direction -to your right, left, up [more than likely, not down ---that'd be your feet!!]. What you see is what we get!!
Stop!

It's all about your first glance after the giant/baby steps!!! [You will have two photos/stories for us- the 30 giant steps then, the 15 baby steps going back]

Don't forget---ask "Mother may I"!!

Okay...go. Have some fun.
Oh, and to answer your "Mother may I?" Yes, YOU MAY!!

    " Mother May I ask you to sign me up for next week? Please?

    And why not! I will volunteer to host the following week. (But someone will have to teach me how to keep the post at the top of my blog. Because I do not have any idea how to) "

  13. Sign me up!

    I may have to do this in two houses, just for fun. Or maybe my office? That way, I'd end up smashed on the busy highway.

  18. Mother May I?
    So if we have to dodge furniture/pivot and swivel...I can pretty much go anywhere in my house and take a picture right?As long as it is does not take more than 30 steps to get there? I have long legs ya know, I have quite a long stride!
    Seriously my possibilities are endless I could go out the back door, the front door, into my garage, downstairs...there are too many options. But I am still in!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, please sign me up! What fun!

  20. **Katybug? Ya, you got the general idea. It's up to you which direction you go...just start at your computer....from there, it's entirely up to you ---don't forget to take 15 baby steps backward too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay - I need another game like a hole in my head - but I'll play! NEXT Monday! Okay! 30 Giant steps... 15 baby steps back... OKAY! GOT it!

    Ahhhhh! You DO mean audience participation--your blog is well titled. LOVE this idea, so count me in (or I guess I should say, "Mother, may I?".

    Cute, Anni, reeeal cute! :)

  23. Count me in!

    My place is really tiny so I'll probably end up outside in the yard once I take my 30 steps.

  26. Hmmm...I don't think I can take 30 giant steps in my house. But I'll try.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'll have to take lots of twists and turns and could end up outside or in the basement but I'll do it.
    Mother may I?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for the recipe. Anything with jello in it (or jelly, as they call it here) is OK by me.

    I promise to try my best to do Fun Monday next week, but it mightn't happen since I'm going to have to use Peter's camera and that thing scares me.

  38. OH boy...so, since my place is pretty small, and I'll probably end up oustide, in a condo complex...I guess I'll be doing this in the middle of the night so none of my neighbors see me and think I'm loony huh?

    Guess I'm in..Mother May I?
