Got a good reason For taking the easy way out





HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Pea @ Pea's Corner!!! She's having a Fae Party...we're all attending, even in costume. I'm there too....it's a blast!

Also, today, I've been tagged errrr, ummmm, mooned!!! Dear fellow blogger of blogland, Thom, decided to give me a pumpkin for Halloween...And now, in lieu of the holiday season and for the CAUSE...I tag MOON, ummmmmm, let's see.....Who shall I moon? Let me think on it...I'll get back to you. [In other words, SCROLL DOWN!!!!!]

For Ruby Tuesday I'll post the photo [sorry for being so blurry, tho] ---a red plastic spider goblet that I bought at the Dollar Store for Halloween. Actually, I bought two. Then, the same day, at the same store, I bought a package of the battery operated flickering lights and added one each into each goblet. They both sit at opposite corners of an end table in the dining room, surrounded by the seasonal webbing.

TAG!! You're it!!
Consider yourself mOOned...big time! Anybody that is here today! But...

The rules only state that I cannot tag the one who tagged me first. So, Thom you just stay away 'cause I've been known to toss a few pumpkins now and then!!

I MOON...

Pea...since it's her birthday today, it's a given!!!
The "G" Man - just 'cause.
Nessa...she says to me she LOVES Halloween. Well, How Scary is this, then?
Tina - she's a sweety...hope this isn't too offensive!
Mary - she loves Halloween too. [besides, it was HER birthday yesterday..this is just the frosting on the cake, right?]
Lenore - 'cause her blog name, Lenore, is so POEtic for this time o' year!!!
ABRAMYANS - this, my friend, is as close to witchy as I can get for you...and you thought Halloween was fun? Think again. [kidding]

OH, AND YOU KNOW ABOUT HOW VOLATILE METHANE GAS IS, DON'T YOU? KEEP LIGHTED CANDLES AT A DISTANCE!!!!!!!!!

You Have Your PhD in Men



You understand men almost better than anyone.

You accept that guys are very different, and you read signals well.

Work what you know about men, and your relationships will be blissful.







Oh and...what a game The Rockies and Phllies had last night. A close one. Up into the 8th inning when Colorado went ahead. By two!! Then....in the ninth. The Phillies scored THREE! And Brad Lidge [a former Astro] closed again for the Phillies...keeping my Rockies at bay. It just wasn't going to happen. The Tie!...nope, nope, nope. FOR THE LAST 16 years that I've followed them from home games in Denver to Spring Training in Tucson...I say once again "There's Always Next Year"! Dang.

  5. Hi Anni!! HA! HA! HA!.. and some MORE HA's!!!! It looks like painting the back of Charlie Brown's head must have inspired SOMEBODY here!!.. But his/her "big-A'd" sense of humor took it just a step (or so!) FARTHER!!! (0; Don't know that I can forward this though. I work for a church, and while I DO think this IS very funny!.. I'm not so sure it would be smiled upon by my employer(s), should one of them see it! Thanks for my morning giggles though!... Love the spider goblets!! If I wasn't packing, I'd be running to buy some for HERE!.. I hesitated to take the quiz, as I know MYSELF WELL! Ha! Ha!.. but I thought "Let's be adventurous". I'm wondering if a tad bit of bitter resentment clouded my thinking, and rose to the surface. No, not ALL men are the same!!.. (0; As I'm SURE I should KNOW this, I only rated a "STUDENT"!! I was told to let loose my hold on "him"... And I did just THAT, HAPPILY, ages ago!! Ha! Ha! Ha! Well the laughs were fun! I've got to get busy packing again. There is so MUCH here to do, it's scaring me! Have a good day! ~tina

  7. Whoa, I never thought I'd get mooned on my birthday! LOL Thank you so much for the birthday wishes, dear Anni:-)

    So many wonderful causes out there and it's great to see that no matter how poor the economy is, people still dig deep in their pockets to make donations.

    I've seen those spider glasses at our dollar store and what a great idea to put one of those candles inside of them! Only you would think of doing that:-)

    I did that quiz and here's what I got....

    You Are a Good Student of Men
    You're pretty good at knowing what men are thinking
    But you're not dead on 100% of the time
    Let your guy off the hook sometimes... because you may be reading him all wrong!

    Hmmmm...I need to learn more I guess!! lol xoxo

  15. Wow, this one was good for more than a few giggles; but since my 7 checks out the pics on my blog each day there will be no mooning there.

    Great choice of causes, I adore the pink swat guys.

  20. You sure did look dressed up at Pea's party and I must say it looks like everyone had a great time.
    It also looks like lots of food.
    I enjoyed reading your post.

    Have a great day.

  21. Anni,

    I've been mooned. LOL That is so cute and funny too. Love it.

    I was very impressed to see the football players wearing pink a week ago Sunday when Dwight was watching the game. Pink are bands, some wore pink runners and more...all to promote breast cancer awareness. Brandon couldn't believe they would wear pink. I told him it's only a colour but the significance is very important.

    Have a wonderful day and thanks for the moon.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  23. Anni what a smart idea about the lights in the goblets two instant scary lamps!
    very cool!

  24. hi anni...so nice to hear from you again.
    you always have such nice things to say!
    i just love this goblet and it doesn't look blurry to me..
    it kind of reminds me of the christmas lights that mom golden used to put on the tree every year when the nine golden children were just little kids.
    i think that it would be very nice for you to use at christmas anni...maybe buy a few more!

    that punkin is a bad boy,,he needs a pair of trousers drawn on him!
    i will never forget the day that bernie, when we were first married had a ned zeppelin record called "stairway to heaven" and it had a picture on the front of a bunch of little boys climbing up a stair way and their bums were bare.
    well, i took a magic marker and fitted them each with a nice pair of blue jeans!!
    hahhahaha!!
    have a great ruby tuesday dear anni.
    you sound like such a fun person.!....love terry

  30. I thought it was going to be some clever way of naming your tag, I didn't realize I would really be getting Mooned! Wow was that scary! Now that is one I might have to steal for my Sunday Spookies!
