The painting continues. Oh my stars and garters, how I hate painting. Tell me, friends: if YOU were in the market for a new (okay, not new, but new to you) house, would a neutral (read: white) palette on the walls make you more likely to make an offer? In other words, would crazy, funky colors make you LESS likely to make an offer?
The big bloggy giveaways are winding down over at the Bloggy Giveaways site. Did you guys go and enter any of them? And was it just me, or were there more than the usual compliment of absurd requirements for entry on most of them? I really was quite disgusted disturbed irked this time at all the YOU MUST SUBSCRIBE TO MY FEED and TWITTER ABOUT MY GIVEAWAY and STAND ON YOUR HEAD AND RECITE THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WHILST DRESSED IN A CHICKEN SUIT blither. Just give the thing away, already! Although there was one lady who let you have an extra entry if you called your mother and told her you loved her. THAT was cool.
If you entered any giveaways, did you win anything? Pray, do tell!
The grandma/grandpa question has been settled! *trumpet blast of joy*! I am pleased to announce that when the little nipper arrives, I will be introduced to her (most likely scenario according to sonogram) or him (human error being a given at times) as “NONNY”. The Shakespearean influence was irresistable to me…Much Ado About Nothing is one of my favorite plays, so there you go. Should be easy enough for the tyke to lisp out, but should she/he twist it into something else, I will go with the flow. My Beloved wants to be Papa (emphasis on the first syllable), although I argued that Poppy went better with Nonny. For some reason, this man who insisted he would never answer to “Dad” but stay “Daddy” forever thinks a teen grandchild would be more comfortable with Papa.
To the person in my town with the Christmas decorations and lights still up: Dude. It’s time to let it go. Please. Everytime I feel fortified enough to soldier through winter and look forward to spring, I pass your house and plunge into a depression. When the Christmas clearance items at Wal Mart are gone, that’s your cue to move on. Thank you.
