Do you know the lyrics?

Music and Lyrics: Music from the Motion Pictur...

Just a question that I hope if you happen upon....that you'll answer....
I was thinking today about a song that I used to sing along with and had the wrong words....
in fact, I used to do that a lot. I had a boyfriend who very rudely told me once how dumb I was because I was saying the wrong words!
There is an old old old song call Poetry in Motion....I thought it was...ready for this?
OH a tree in motion! LOL

Did you ever sing along to a song only to find out that you had been singing the wrong words in some of it????????
Tell me about it!

Monday Crazy Questions reminder

just a reminder... I am not sending an email reminder anymore
Come play with us

A Major Award

An Award

Pinklady at Sheepish Thoughts gave this award to Thom. Thom then passed it on to me:-)

Thank you so much THOM!!

PinkLady received the award from HER friend Kat of Soy Wax Candles Blog and Candles Crafts and Whatnot . It is called a "Major Award."

PINKLADY Said this:
Kat is one of the very good friends I met here in the blogging world. We hit it off right away like kindred spirits. And even if we don't get to chat often anymore, I know she still checks on me and makes her presence felt all the time which I truly appreciate. A real friend
Since my friend can't remember the rules for this award, she made up her own [that is soooooo ]. This is what she said :

“But I love it!! So Much!!! I laughed out loud when I received it, because I have such fond memories of this movie!! I even listed it in my top 10 funniest movies over at Candles, Crafts and Whatnot.

Who can forget when it came “Fra-gee-ly” LOL
There were so many good moments in the movie A Christmas Story, but the lamp was the highlight (no pun intended).

So, thank you to whoever the wonderful person was that gave me this, I am sorry I can’t link to you. If you are out there, let me know and I will definitely edit this post!!

Seeing as though I don’t remember the rules or anything…I am making my own up!! LOL”

This award is for anyone who likes to smile and/or laugh, and just generally spreads that along in this blogging world we all travel in. (sounds good, right?)”

Thanks again Thom for passing it to me:-).

So I’m going to pass this award onto other fellow smilers and laughers :

Of course I'd pass it to Thom..BUT he already got it so .............(and he stole some of my choices-- so my list is shorter than I intended.):-)

Stef H Glitterbabe greetings

MEJIS Did I say that outloud

Is this a deal or no deal?

Deal or No Deal (video game)Image via Wikipedia I like to change my blog now and's not just because it is a's because it just IS. I used to do it to my hair a lot...but finally after many disasters I have found other things to massacre.
So, I decide to change the blog and I first tried just a background like this...but stupidly I saved it without backing up my original. Then I decided I wanted something more than just a background so, figured I would go to where I got the purple flowered blog that I deleted. I found another template that I fell in love with (sort of) so I tried it and previewed it before I saved it. (using my head this time) Well, to my horror I saw that everything on my side bar would be gone if I saved the layout.
Ok, so since I know that I can do just a background with out losing my sidebar, I decided I'd better find something I like in backgrounds. So, back to the cutest blog I went. Hence, the change of the look of this blog.
First of all, I have 3 blogs and I don't even know why. Ok, well, I have one to answer my memes and I have one where you go to MCQ on mondays. Right? you do go there right?
so this 3rd one is sort of just for the leftovers I guess. You never know when I will have something very important to tell ya. Like I am doing now!! :-)
So after adopting this new blog look I had to make some odds and ends to go on my side bar and I had to change the text colors and etc. I have spent pretty much the whole day on this dang thing!
So now....was it worth it?
Reply with the number that matches you feeling about my new blog.....
1. My god I want to vomit when I see it. NO DEAL
2. I guess I can bear with it..I am not here all that often.
3. Stop's kind of cute.
4. Actually I think it's the bomb! DEAL!

Hey even I know there is always room for improvement!:-)

Who Has Him By The Balls?

It's been hard for me to get back into gear since being sick.. I just don't have any ambition. I just did one meme this week. Couldn't motivate myself to do more. I hope this improves soon!!!!!!!!!!
I spent the day today just doing a little house work as I felt like it. There is lots left to do! One thing I like to do when I am not feeling particularly motivated is open Itunes and go to their store. I listen to artists that I am not familiar with. Well. I was on MSN looking at news clips and switched to music videos. I watched Josh Ritter who I was not impressed with..then I went to

KT TunstallImage by babblingdweeb via Flickr

KT Tunstall and her song "Black Horse and #928"...WOW..what a voice...then I happened

P3sessions - <span class=Image by NRK P3 via Flickr

on a song named 'A Bar In Amsterdam' by Katzenjammer. A

Fusion 09: <span class=Image by stinker via Flickr

really talented and entertaining group!!
Then I moved onto Thriving Ivory...
well, all I could say is...who has this guy by the balls? It's almost painful to listen to his "Hey Lady" And just who is the lady in that video? You look right as his face and then he opens his mouth,...what a shock!

Thriving Ivory 1Image by Uncensored Interview via Flickr Thriving Ivory

All in all, I found some great music to buy and became a music critic all in one day!! if you haven't listened to these groups... Go find them and tell me if you liked them.... The down fall is having to watch the commercials.
Hope everyone is having a great day and will have a great weekend...I am going to try to do my Saturday memes!

Yankee Doodle Dandy

Welcome to Saturday: 9 . What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: Yankee Doodle Dandy

1. What is your favorite 4th of July memory? (If you aren’t in the U.S., then use your own national holiday.)

I don’t seem to have one :(

2. Do you consider yourself patriotic?

Uh,,I guess not

3. Do you like fireworks?

Hell no… I am sitting right now with all kinds of them shooting at my house and my dog is a nervous wreck and so am i! Even the pouring rain didn’t slow them down.

4. What are your plans for this weekend?

I wish I could say we were going to St Martaan…..but

5. Are you optimistic about the future?

I am not too optimistic about the past…or present…so what do you think?

6. Do you think everyone should serve in the military? No just the Sarah Palin’s in the world!

7. Would you support a constitutional ban on flag burning?

Have to be serious here!If I am correct..I believe it's a crime to deface our money? so why wouldn't be a crime to deface our flag?

8. What end of the political spectrum are you?

MY OB/GYN doesn’t call it political….but I am not on the good end ..oh wait am I thinking of the wrong thing?… Oh well spectrum…speculum…whatever

9. Where do you get your news?

Msnbc and the drunk down the street when she comes by for her morning coffee.

Don't forget the Monday Crazy Questions meme this monday...the theme is The Bucket List

Friday Flash 55 is a story
written in exactly 55 words.
Let the G-Man know if you write one
and read the ones of your fellow writers.

This would be part 3 of the 55s I posted 3 last. I was going to do part two last week, but forgot. LOL I hope I can keep this going, because I want to know what happens :-)

He arrived home later than he expected.
The house is dark.
Where could she be? she knew I was coming.
She said she'd be there no matter what.
The door was open a crack. she'd never leave the door open.
Something is wrong.
He listened for sounds but only heard the deafening sound of silence.

Thurdsday Thunks

Hold The Knob, Wear Clean Shoes And Enjoy The Insanity!

Welcome to the July 2nd version of Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!
This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
Kimber, the number 14 and the color of your mother's hair dye.

1. When you close a door, do you close it quick and just let it slam or do you hold the knob and slowly shut it tight? I let it go and it can do what ever it wants to.

2.Train A is moving at 60 miles an hour. Train B is moving at 22 miles an hour. They will pass each other at X time. Now what color shoes are you wearing when train A derails?
I have none on because I was thrown around probably.
3. What if M&M's grew on trees? What color M&M tree would you have? Hmmm Green I guess

4. How many petals on a flower does it take to make it the perfect bloom? Who the heck cares? once it's picked it's only a matter of time

5. I took you to spend $421.67 on you, what did we spend that money on? I have no idea..I am not with you to see how you spend guys are really out of your minds this week...whew (I'm sorry I took your money and split, but that's not enough money for 2.)

6. If you were a squash, what type of squash would you be?Desperate for questions? OMG you guys have lost your minds... I guess I am a summer's summer you know?

7. Have you ever gotten a wrong number call and ended up talking to the person for longer than 5 minutes? Not since I was a teenager...don't ask

8. Why haven't you joined Berleen & Kimber at Insanity Cafe yet? Do we stink? Sometimes I like a little less insanity.????? Honestly, tho...I just don't like those forum type things...not as user friendly!!

9. Now for one of Ber's questions back when TT was brand new... Shampoo bottles say lather, rinse, repeat... do you? Only if I feel it needs it...who reads labels in the shower??? hard on the eyes for sure!

10. It's July, the year is half over. Do you see it as "whew that part is over" or best is yet to come? anytime that I can imagine winter is at the end of 6 months.....that is not the best is yet to come!

11. Why do you do the Thursday Thunks meme? Well it's fun !!! as are the other great memes I do! There is so much...too much to keep a person busy on the blogs. You should see my house.....ewe
