1) Now that Fun Monday is done for the week, I’ve got "naked blogging" to catch up on (and NO, scarypeople, that isn’t about sitting–undressed–at your computer…or standing, for that matter). The thing is, I’m also wrist deep into finishing our Western Adventure series. Why can’t I finish it? Is it because I have a.d.d. when it comes to writing? Is it because I’m meeting my husband for lunch and having a very-necessary pedicure before my feet start looking like THIS? (click that link ONLY if you’re very, very b.r.a.v.e.)? Is it because of on-going technical difficulties? Or because we took so many pictures I slip into a dreamy, ethereal state when I look at them and I’m instanta- neously mentally (where it counts) teleported back to the Grand Tetons or meandering through the 2,000,000+ acres of Yellowstone instead of writing about it
That would be a reverberating "y e s! thankyewverymuch!"
2) The addiction spoken of in the title can be explained with this:
What is it you ask? A spice jar-sized creamer and sugar set, much like the similarly-packaged picnic-ready salt and pepper shakers you might find on aisle 7 at your local grocer’s.
What it is, is not relevant. That I bought it in the first place, is. A) I certainly didn’t need it; and B) the singular reason I bought it was it cost 10¢…one thin dime. Originally $1.75, for some inexplicable reason, I HAD to have it! One of the BEST bargains I’ve ever found! I wanted to buy several of them to give away
as enviable prizes in some kind of spectacular blog giveaway… hmmm, or maybe Ree will want a few for her photo caption contest, yes? . WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH THAT??? IT MAKES NO SENSE, EVEN TO ME!
See? a true addiction…I’m so ashamed…my need to buy something just because it’s 95% off. Sick, I tell ya, sick!
 Here’s a sursee I bought myself recently. Seems like I’m developing "plaque", too…and not just the kind a little dab of Crest will take care of.
This joins the other plaque I featured in a previous Fun Monday. Gosh, if you super-size the picture and read the baby cercie I bought myself at the same time, you’re gonna think I NEVAH clean my house.
Would that be the worst thing in the world?
Tad, you are NOT allowed to comment! 😉
I’ll pay you a quarter for that little sugar/creamer thing.
You’re not addicted, you’re a shrewd shopper. You could probably pay for a University education if you had a garage sale!!
Dang it, Min…I KNEW I shoulda scarfed up all they had!
I’ll offer 30 cents. Plus I’ll pay for postage.
Your move, Min.
Oh, mercy…y’all gonna get cranked up again?
I was just kidding. I mean…I don’t HAVE 30 cents.
Nice plaques, though. (Somehow that just looks wrong now that I’ve typed it out. But I mean it only in the nicest possible sursee way.)
It is CUTE – and 95% off – hey, you don’t get bargains like that every day.
I went school shopping with the kids – and they had 75% off rack summer clothes – so guess what I did – bought shorts for NEXT year at $1.99 a piece (of course, went WAY overboard and bought a ton).
I bought some itty-bitty tabasco’s because they were so cute…but they are sooo cute…I don’t want to use them.
OH TINKLE!! You won the Dingo!
Congrats on the Dingo!
I clicked on that feet link and now I’m not sure I am going to be able to keep my dinner down. Gotta run…
This post still hasn’t showed up in my bloglines, what’s going on!? The only thing I find strange about this whole thing is that you didn’t buy a bunch of those creamers, I sure would have.
Congratulations on the Dingo Award, my Trashy Friend. Please be very careful where you place that thing on your side bar…possibly away from your very prestigious Swampy Award, ok?
Stephen, once you place a bid, you may NOT retract it!
Karmyn, heehee, I’ve done that, too! You’ll be soooo happy NEXT year when you pull them out :).
Min, you could refill them with water & red food coloring…or blood…or watered down ketchup…or…?
Min, now THAT’S an explanation I don’t think I’ve ever heard before…
Beckie, I TOLD you it was grodie!!!!
WT, yeah, I hate it when that happens with bloglines.
Swampy, My very prestigious Swampy Award is in a class by itself ;).
Congrats on your Dingo Award. Is it really Congrats…or I am so sorry? 😉 *LOL*
I love your little plaque. They are both too cute! 🙂
You warned me, but I clicked, and my eyes may never recover. Ick!
And to warn you, those powdered creamers almost always (I’ve never seen one that doesn’t) have partially hydrogenated (or fully hydrogenated) oil in it. Bad! Bad! Bad!
When did you sneak a pic of my feet (only joking they’re not quite that bad!)
Debbie…legitimate question…hope his last comment and my response answers it for anyone who’s curious :).
Heather, my feet WOULD end up like that if I didn’t lotion them DAILY! Something that didn’t hit til my 40s (daggum it).
Hey Chris, how did I miss you when I posted that last comment? Hmmm…we must’ve hit publish about the same time.
