Got a good reason For taking the easy way out



Which celebrity (or celebrities) do you think will make headlines this year?

* * *
Oh now you're strolling up MY alley. I love celebrity gossip. I drink it all in, but rarely appreciate it. No, I'm not the one to purchase the tabloids, but when I'm at the grocery counter, checking out, I tend to read ALL the papers' headliners! For instance this past week...perusing 3 of the well-known tabloids...One - Angelina and Jennifer have a confab, getting to know each other and making amends. While on a 2nd one, the same two ladies are still at odds and hate continues for one breaking up a marriage. While still the 3rd one says something like the two same women have a get-together and Brad has a cow!!! They're such a hoot!!

But, there are always celebrities making the news. And I know that before 2007 is over, there will be sadness for me of some great celebs' deaths, and such.

Soon, it will be Oscar time, so there will be headlines in the entertainment section. I'm thinking Will Smith, Judy Dench, and some new unknowns for now will be in the news from the *groan* -- American Idol!! Oh, and not to forget the infamous Michael Jackson, and the other weirdo, Donald Trump!! They both are too glorified if my personal opinion is called for. And a bit creepy too.


They say that good things come in small packages? What is something little that you think is great?

* * *
LOL, well, I will NOT go where this question is taking me. Did someone say once that size matters? Or is it "Size doesn't count"....

Let me pause a moment, take a deep breath to get my mind out of the gutter- and continue....

Babies are small in comparison, so babies.
Jewelry is always contained in small areas.
Well now, shucky darn...if you consider envelopes envelope filled with two airline tickets to paradise.


Name a song that makes you want to dance.

* * *
Oh easy. When you want me to get down and jive with the rest of the group, just play the theme song to Footloose. It gets me every time!! Must be jelly 'cause jam don't shake like that!!!!
And if you want ballroom dancing...and me out on the floor, it'd be something like Stardust or waltzing with The Blue Danube!
If it's at a country ho-down, perhaps the two-step to the music of Charlie Daniels Band.

Main Course

What is your favorite font?

* * *
For plain type, I generally continue to pick Comic Sans.
If making graphics, it's an enormous amount. I love Scriptina with it's special flair.


If you were to write a do-it-yourself article, what would it be about?

* * *
In Dear Abby style--

Dear Anni:
I have a husband who is recently retired, and he is always found sitting way too many hours at a time...
To get him back on the track of living life, how would I go about getting him active once again?
Signed, Disheartened Retiree's Wife

Dear Wife:
Read my article in my help yourself book just recently published...
"Get him off his sweet patootie and on his feet again"
Signed, Dear Anni


  1. Happy Friday and thanks for dropping by :)

  2. Nothing wrong with a mind in the gutter, mine's been there for years....

    As for the retiree, get him blogging! You don't get old without getting opinionated (I should know!) & that's what a blog's all about! Or build a website on one of his interests-it's so easy nowadays it's ridiculous.

  3. CHRIS: No...having him sit more at the computer would not be Dear Anni's idea of getting him off his duffer...

    She'd suggest golfing or bowling...somewhere where he's active!!!

  4. I love the way you write and think! You always crack me up, dear lady!! I tend to answer my Feast questions on the "straight" but I can always count on you to cut through the minutiae ( BS, that is) and get right to the best part, the funny part....

    You make my day!


  5. I am LOL! Anni, I think this is one of your BEST ever FF! I knew I could count on you for an appetizer! I'll just go back to MY blog now and put "yea... what Anni said" for MY appetizer - K? Cuz we all know mine SUCKS! LOL! And your dessert is to die for! I will read that article and relish every word! ^High 5's Anni!

  6. a meal worth eating slowly and with much pleasure! Your dessert was priceless... my feast is served also

  8. We seem to keep meeting up at these things!

    I was tempted with the soup question, too. Footloose is a great get up and get moving song!

    Thanks for dropping by :)

  9. Deslily: THANK YOU SO MUCH...I'm gonna grab the photo then!!!

  10. Haha! Great feast! Getting someone in retirement of his feet sounds like a plan. After my husband retired, he got himself a part-time job at the golf course just so he could golf for free. :)
