Friday Foolishness – Get The Goods Edition


Today’s Music: Phantogram – When I’m Small

Summary of the week that was:
Cons – Cube Life. Crappy Holiday Music. Still looking for work.
Pros – Living with TMWGITU. The more relaxed spirit of the holiday season. And blogs!
Here’s some of what I read this week.
Natalie introduced us to her very cool sister. Hasty Words wrote some more great poetry, and and TwinDaddy asked a question we all have some kind of answer for.

Thanks to them, and to all of you, for making it a pleasure to be online!

It's the book that makes the ensemble.

But that’s not all there was last week. There was a poll! We wondered how y’all thought El Guapo stayed so handsome.
And some of your answers were impossible, immoral, or downright illegal. And I loved every single one of them!

Congratulations to buddhakat for this weeks winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular was BRRAAAAIIIINNNSSS!!!!! A fantastic post birthday present!

Which means, I guess, that it’s time for this week’s poll. I’m not so sure, because my head is spinning from all the gift shopping crowds stumbling through midtown. So this time, the question is all about the holiday shopping.
Answer when you have a moment, but don’t take too long, because this one ends at 2359EST, on 20 Dec.


And until we meet again, enjoy these.
In the spirit of the season, the first is one of TMWGITU’s favorites

And lastly, for those of you with enough time on your hands (I already know your senses of humor are bent enough), this is for you:

Have a great week, can’t wait til we run into each other again!
