Big Stuff

Finish the Sentence Friday

This is a post participating in Finish The Sentence Friday.  This week we had to finish the following sentence:  I once saw the biggest…

It was summer.  I had spent a hot day walking around with no real destination.  My stomach was rumbling, my mouth was dry, and I was exhausted.

Just when I was losing faith that was when I saw it.  I could see it through the windows of a nearby building.  It was big, it was brown, it was beautiful.  It was beckoning to me, calling me to come closer.  As I entered the room, it smelled wonderful.  Masses of people converged just to have a look at this magnificent sight!

All I wanted was a little taste. I wanted to be part of this like no other.  Just a little satisfaction and I’d be on my way, never to bother about it again… but alas I was denied.  Turned down, rejected…

That’s right, I once saw the biggest piece of chocolate I’ve ever seen in my entire life at the Iowa State Fair, and they wouldn’t let me have any.  😦


Yep, there he is, all that chocolate. Surely there’s someone would split it with me?  Maybe with a big glass of milk…  Oh that’s right, you can have the milk-I’m lactose intolerant.

This was short and sweet. HAHA see what I did there?  Chocolate?  Sweet?

Speaking of big stuff, I now invite you to transport yourself to a magical world.  I’m part of a campaign designed to try to get the dictator for life back into the driver’s seat over at The Adventures of a Misplaced Alaskan.  Terrye has been missing in action in the blogging world for quite some time and it’s time for her to start planning her triumphant return.  I offer up ten reasons why she needs to do so.  Please click HERE  to come over and snoop around.  It’s okay to check the medicine cabinet, but be careful!

Finish the Sentence Friday is hosted by the following princesses of blog land:

Kristi of Finding Ninee

Kate of Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine With My Quiet Time?

Stephanie of Mommy Is For Real

Janine of Janine’s Confessions of a Mommyholic

(A little aside before I go:  this was supposed to go live this morning. Apparently you have to actually hit  an extra button before anything happens on WordPress.  Duh.  You’d think I’d learn that after four or five times.)

I’m Not Misplaced, I’m Just Distracted

SweetaprilsOne of my blogging BFFs happens to be Terrye from The Adventures of a Misplaced Alaskan.  I met her through an a Facebook group for bloggers. She is a fellow redhead as well as appreciator of funniness, Sci-fi, and good looking superheroes. She also can match me quote for quote from the movie Willow, which is especially amazing, because I think that ten people in the world saw that movie and eight of them are related to me.  Thanks to Terrye and Marcia from Menopausal Mother, I lose a lot of sleep because I stay up until all hours talking to both of them on Facebook!
Today I’m guest posting on her blog as she has been too busy to write.  She’s been spending time in combat, fighting off Romulans and Sith Lords who are trying to take over her new mattress (I hear it’s a REALLY comfortable mattress, worthy of an intergalactic war).  I took it upon myself to write about how life would be so much cooler if it were more like Star Trek.  I hope you’ll get your geek on and pay a visit!  Make sure you check out some of Terrye’s stuff while you’re there, and ask her how her mattress is…

And it keeps getting funnier every time I see it!
