Happy Friday....and Happy February!

"If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently." ~Bill Watterson

Just a quick heads-up: if you haven't signed up for my electronic newsletter, and you'd like to, there's a little form right over there on the sidebar. I only send them out every other month, and it's usually a brief "what I've been up to with my writing these days." The February one goes out this weekend!

And here's your Friday Feast...

Appetizer
What is your favorite kind of cereal?
Ooh, I'm eating it right now: Quaker Oat Squares - crunchy and good flavored, with fiber and all that good stuff.

Soup
When was the last time you purchased something for your home, what was it, and in which room did it go?
We just bought a new chair for the computer desk in our home office...it is SO much more comfortable than the old one!

Salad
What is the funniest commercial you’ve ever seen?
I'm not a big TV watcher, but I do think that cell phone one with the father talking to the guy who wants to date his daughter is pretty funny ("See? We're both in her Fab Five. I'm right next to you...it's like I'm watching you...all the time.")

Main Course
Make up a name for a company by using a spice and an animal (example: Cinnamon Monkey).
Lavender Lemurs

Dessert
Fill in the blank: I haven’t ______ since ______.
Gone outside without a winter coat since November. I'm already ready for spring!

And here's a funny audio clip, too!

I've seen that commerical and it's hilarious.

I love your "Lavender Lemurs!" I go without a coat all of the time. My family is always yelling at me. I am surprised I haven't come down with pneumonia! Have a super weekend! Cindi

That telemarketer prank is fabulous! I played it for Bob and I have a feeling it may be carried on in this house as well :-)
