Over the Top Award

I recently received this award from Green Eyed Momster who is a kick in the pants. Thank you
GEM. It is called the "Over the Top" Award and I am humbled to be recognized. (I am so insecure that any attention I get causes devotion and drooling.) I jokingly referred to this award as a chain letter award, but was informed by the lovely and much more talented than I, Mrs. Monkey Man, that is is called a meme.

So here are the rules of this meme award as passed down to me by the fore-winners (is there such a thing).

1. Answer the questions below using only one word (Good! My simple mind couldn't handle more than that.)

2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you (What's next, bow to your partner and doe see doe?)

C. Pass it on to 6 of your favorite bloggers (Shown below.)

So, now the questions:

1. Where is your cell phone? Pocket

2. Your hair? Gone

3. Your mother? Guilt

4. Your father? Passed

5. Your favorite food? Steak

6. Your dream last night? Sex

7. Your favorite drink? Water

8. Your dream/goal? Happiness (ditto!)

9. What room are you in? Bedroom

10. Your hobby? Walking

11. Your fear? Failure

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? Loved

13. Where were you last night? Restaurant

14. Something you aren't? Patient

15. Muffins? Banananut (OK it’s not really one word)

16. Wish list item? Motorcycle

17. Where did you grow up? Portland

18. Last thing you did? Changed

19. What are you wearing? Jeans (ditto!)

20. Your TV? Off

21. Your pets? Doofus

22. Your friends? Caring

23. Your life? Transitioning

24. Your mood? Thoughtful

25. Missing someone? Dad

26. Vehicle? Explorer

27. Something you're not wearing? Shoes (ditto!)

28. Your favorite store? Resale

29. Your favorite color? Blue

30. When was the last time you laughed? Minutes

31. Last time you cried? Thursday

32. Your best friend? Wife

33. One place that I go over and over? Park

34. One person who emails me regularly? Dennis

35. Favorite place to eat? McCormack's

I included a (ditto!) when I had the same answer as GE Momster because she did the same thing for the person who passed it on to her and I am a copycat. This was fun but now I have to pick six, which will be hard. So I choose -

Chronicles of a Croydon Boy (reveal yourself Phillip)
Let Me Go On and On (you are amazing)
Adventures of One Sober Woman (you adventurer you)
This is harder than answering the questions
Sixtyfivewhatnow (my fellow Orgonian)
The Peach Tart (love you Peach)
and Mr. Knowitall (that's for getting me hooked on that 55 bs - love that too)

I also want to plug The Walking Man because he is talented and I follow him, but know he wouldn't do this award business.

So have fun accepting this award you six and I'd say let me know when you post, but since i follow all of you, I'll know anyway. Love you all. Enjoy.

Red Angel

The argument was getting too heated.

Both parties stood glaring,

pink faced with veins

popping everywhere.

Silence suddenly

overtook the room,

forcing calm and

reducing blood pressure.

They turned to face

the perpetrator

of this most profound

and mysterious occurrence.

Floating above the fray

was the sage Red Angel.

Kind words and logic then prevailed.

This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55.

If you want to know what the hell that means visit g-man. The challenge is on.

Or Try my Sunday 160.
If you can fill a text messages, you can do this.

Just Because...

I have made a few observations that I want to share. They all begin with....
Just because.... own an expensive car doesn't mean you know how to drive.
...your hair and nails are perfect doesn't mean you look skinny.
...your dog will fit in a purse doesn't mean it can't walk.
...your signal works doesn't mean you should leave it on for 10 miles. are alone in your car doesn't mean people can't see you pick your nose. own a cell phone doesn't mean everyone wants to hear your conversation. have a bluetooth ear piece doesn't mean you look any less crazy talking to yourself.
...your children can run free in a restaurant doesn't mean they should.
...your S2000 may look like a sports car it's still a Honda.
...your daddy was president and you went to an Ivy League school doesn't mean you have a brain in your head. know the words to a song doesn't mean you can carry a tune. can play softball at 40 doesn't mean you are an athlete. have your turn signal on doesn't mean you can merge into my lane without looking.

I was going to add "Just because you can make a list doesn't mean you can write." but I would have been dissing myself and a number of very entertaining blogs I keep up on. I hope you enjoyed this and I hope you will add a few of your own.....just because.

Breathtaking 160

He held his breath and stayed silent.
His heart felt like it was beating as
loud as a drum. Footsteps drew closer.
Playing hide and seek was quite exhilarating.


This is a Sunday 160.
Take the Challenge if you dare.
