Turtle



Okay, so I had an idea of what I wanted to write about tonight but it totally left me. that happened a lot today -- where I want to say something and then I completely forget. Not sure what's up.

Haven't gotten any new snapple facts lately so I have no wisdom to impart.

born in 1959

So, here's a list of some famous people born in 1959.

Simon Cowell
Marie Osmond
Weird Al Yankovic
John McEnroe
Hugh Laurie
Kevin Spacey
Lawrence Taylor
Nastassja Kinski
Rosanna Arquette
Rupert Everett
Val Kilmer
Corey Pavin
Mackenzie Phillips
Fred Couples

I thought Madonna and Sharon Stone and Vanna White were also my age, but I was wrong. Vanna was born in '57; Madonna, in '58; Sharon, in '58.

re-do, covers, etc.

So does Hollywood have any imagination at all? I mean "17 again" (if that's the name of it). How many times are they going to do the "if I had it to do all over again" theme. Let's see there's Big, Freaky Friday, 13 going on 30, to name a few. And what about obsessed -- isn't that Fatal Attraction? Can't they come up with some new ideas? I can't believe people will go to see these movies again and again -- it would be one thing if they waited several years, like 40, but every year, c'mon now.

Okay, for my blog readers, let's see how many "17 again" movies we can come up with.

1 - Big
2 - Freaky Friday
3 - 13 going on 30
4 -

more snapple facts

sooooo today's snapple fact #73 is that the average person will spend the equivalent of 2 weeks over their lifetime waiting for a traffic light to change. How in the world do they calculate that? Is this a worldwide fact or just a US fact? and of course, who really cares? does this mean that there are people who will spend 4 weeks waiting and some that will never wait (those who are blessed with always having green lights)?

and for those wondering here's the definition of pithy... (courtesy of Dictionary.com)

pithy   [pith-ee] –adjective
1. brief, forceful, and meaningful in expression; full of vigor, substance, or meaning; terse; forcible: a pithy observation.
2. of, like, or abounding in pith.

Chain of Love

I got this off Katie's blog .. and since I think only two people read my blog I may have to make two things for one of you and three things for the other ...

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!
My choice. For you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make for you!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year.
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a song. It may be a self portrait or maybe even some creation I haven't yet dreamed up. I may draw. (Although it would just be stick figures...) I may bake you something and mail it to you. It may not be big or impressive. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! But lets be honest here. This is me and I will likely do something amazing. =) So come on, sign up!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch?
Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to post this same blog on their blog and leave a comment telling me they did will win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

Let's keep the chain of love going around!!
