Friday Foolishness – Statuary Edition

Today’s Music: The Kings – This Beat Goes On/Switchin’ to Glide
Note on Today’s Music: Because really, nothing matters but the weekend. From any point of view.

What a week! Work, errands, chores, and to top it off, I chopped off a piece of my finger too.
So how does one distract oneself from the pain?
Why, by reading blogs of course! Here’s some of what I saw.
Alex Autin showed me how my old commute wasn’t near as bad as our collective commute. I Thought This Would Be Easier may finally have time to pee, and and Helene Troy had some strong feelings about fat.

Also, Edward Hotpur bestowed a Versatile Blogger Award on me! (How cool is that?)

Thanks to them, and all of you, for a great week of reads!
What else was read? Well ,last week, a bunch of you read the poll, where we ask what you do the day after Valentines Day. And from the answers, love means many things to many people. Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments are ardent in italics.)

I hunt down a good bone 🙂 Wolf
(Say it with me, everyone: THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!)
If I had a Valentine like that I wouldn’t need the talcum powder…. ~Miss R

Realize I have a gigantic food baby. At least it’s not a real baby! – Lily In Canada

(No, I didn’t just say that…)

there was a Valentines Day? Damn I missed it again (JackieP)
(You were caught up in the Presidents Day excitement too!!!)
take my undergarments from my purse after the long walk of shame

Congratulations to Michelle for this weeks winning answer,and keeping love and romance alive all year long! And from the offered choices, the most popular was “Make delicious recipes. With the bodies.” Because y’all don’t wast anything! (except the time spent here!)

This week,we’re polling again on the topical events of the week. Because we’re lazy. (And couldn’t figure out a good “bloody appendage” poll.)
So butter your popcorn and fill your 70 oz soft drink! And cast your ballots in this weeks poll. But do it by 2359 on 28 Feb, because that’s when this one ends. (If you leave a way for me to recognize you in your answer, I’ll link back to you next week.)

That about wraps it up for this week. And in parting, enjoy these.
First, the theme song from a piece of cinema veritae that won NO awards.
I know, I can’t believe it either!

And finally, since both Easter and Christmas were referenced above, what the hell, lets throw in some of the devil.

Have a great week y’all. See you on the bounceback…
