I've been thinking ..

.. I'm going to be very selective about which giveaways I enter -- I never win anyway.

.. the captchas seem to be getting longer,

.. I need a mani/pedi.  Anybody want to come with me?

.. I have been putting off some tedious tasks.  but I need to do them.  maybe tomorrow night.

.. I don't go to bed early enough.

.. I need to read more.

.. what does serendipitous mean anyway?

Nice thoughts! Well
-I basically don´t enter giveaways at all, cause I never win anyways.
- I don´t know what captchas are.
- I would love to give you a mani/pedi...only you´d have to fly me in.
- I try to take tidious tasks one at a time..and honor myself by sewing after wards :-)
-we never get enough sleep, no matter how early we go to bed
- I am sure you read a lot...the question is do you read the right things?
- last but not least...cannot help you on that since I don´t know what it means either.
Hugs Kirsten

I didn't know what captchas meant which I guess balances out my use of the word serendipitous. I use it in the tems of "a strange thing that has happened like it was just meant to be" - ie. the only fabrics of a range I like happen to be the ones at my local store even though they were only supposed to be sold in America. According to wikipedia - in the simplest of words, it means a "happy accident".

I'm not really a fan of giveaways. A lot of them seem like a cry for comments/compliments/followers. I've entered maybe 3 in the last year - the most recent being the one at RPQ, when I probably would have rathered be able to make an actual comment as opposed to be lost in a sea of 1000 other entrants.

i think the same way. i never win. i started doing my own giveaways~making sure to play fair :) i just think so many of those giveaways are rigged.

I've won a couple of give-aways and I didn't even realize that I'd entered--but that's okay. As a rule though, I don't go out of my way to enter give-aways.

Reading is good. You might want to check out some Flannery O'Connor. I'm honoring her on my blog this week.
