Friday Foolishness – Grainy Edition

Today’s Music: The Cult – Sanctuary
Note on Today’s Music: Saw tehm last night. They did all of Electric, then another hour. Good show. The opening band, White Hills, SUCKED!!! and did over an hour. fMeh.

I day, you day, because all day, it’s Friday!!! Yeah, I didn’t get enough sleep this week. Because I was too busy reading blogs! Here’s some of what I saw…
Rarasaur told us about bedtime stories. GingerFightBack returned to the early days of train travel (tales).
And moreissuesthantimemagazine gave me a Sunshine Award! (Maybe because I’m trying to invent cold fusion using Cheerios and Scotch.) You should check her out. I’ve really been enjoying her posts!

Looks exactly like it did last week...

Looks exactly like it did last week…

But before you do that, let’s consider what made up last weeks poll, which asked us to consider what made up the blue plate special. Here’s what you said.
(As always, my comments are smothered in italics.)

Making a comeback 🙂 Andro
(I think we’d prefer if it made a “go away”.)
A laxative in disguise, eat wisely or else? 😦 Andro
(Is that a laxitive in a disguise, or a laxative “after” picture???)
The hobo meal of the day, bet you are soooo pleased? 🙂 Andro
(Meal made from hobos makes me gassy…)
It always tastes like chicken

pina coladas and getting caught in the rain, or worse: him, him, him (Stacy)

Sharp Little Pencil says: Carp left over last night, in a casserole with cheese

Being stolen at this very minute, oy come back or else? Andro
(My stomach picks “or else”.)
A big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat. (Goes with your shirt!) RoS

Congratulations to Quirky for this weeks winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular was a tie between these polls, in edible form. and BRRRRAAAIIIINNNSSSS!!!! (Editors note: I always get a kick when this answer fits. Even when it is a little…creepy…). So thanks for equating These Polls and Brains!!!

I enjoy doing these polls. I think they’re better than sliced bread! But that begs the question, what else is better than sliced bread? This week, that’s what we want to know. This one closes at 2359 EDT, 28 Aug, so get your answers in by then. (And if you leave an “Other” answer, leave a way to identify you, and I’ll link back next week.)

Which means that now we’re into the wrap up section.
And to send you on your way with a smile, here’s some Carol Burnett and Vicki Lawrence, doing what they do best – making each other laugh.

Have a great week everyone!

P.S. – I don’t know that this is “funny”, or even all that interesting. But I got a kick out of it, so I figured I’d tuck it in down here.
