Well, Hello November!

Aaaaand NaBloPoMo.

So, here it is. The first of thirty.

Thirty in a row, that is.

So, most of you who read this blog also read my sister's blog. In this post you can read where she strong arms me into participating in this post-every-day-of-the-month-or-else thing. Also, you can read where she gives you the run down on how things are going to operate for the month, at least on our two blogs. We're going to have a daily theme, if you will.

Thursday's theme is: Question From My Sister

In anticipation of today's posts, we emailed each other a few questions. Actually, she emailed me quite a few. Like more than the FBI even asked me that one time. But these are much more interesting. Depending on your perspective.

Let me reach into my mailbag and pull one out.

Grrrrrrraaaaaah! (That't the sound of me reaching into my mailbag.)

Question: What, in your opinion, is the best invention of all time? The worst?

Answer: In my opinion, I personally believe, that the best invention ever, is the Iraq. And South Africa. And such as and so forth.

Ok. Really. That joke is just way too old. But I didn't get to blog about it yet so, Miss Teen South Carolina, your 15 minutes of fame live on!

And now, back to our regularly scheduled post.

I really believe that the best invention of all time is, in fact, the wheel.

I know, I know. The wheel is so yesterday, so been-there-invented-that in fact re-invented that several times. But really, think for a minute where you would be without the wheel.Walking, that's where. And still lowering a bucket on a rope into the well.

You sure as heck wouldn't be roller-skating around your modular home while your Kitchen-Aid mixes bread dough. Not without the wheel you wouldn't.

You also wouldn't be snug and warm in your pop-up-camper, deep in the woods of Potter County, turning your hand crank radio so you could listen to The Willis Brothers' rendition of Give Me 40 Acres to Turn This Rig Around*. No, sir. Not without the wheel.

Now, having given The Best Invention Ever Award to Wheel, I want to call attention to another wonderful invention which, I hope, doesn't feel slighted - Lever.

Lever, you are a wonderful invention in your own right and I know, I know, we wouldn't have see-saws or scissors or claw hammers or wheelbarrows - and probably Stonehenge - without you. But, being put in a position of having to choose ONE, I do have to go with Wheel. But, Lever, you get Grand Champion Reserve Invention. And, as my dear hubby says, "Always remember: Archimedes is your friend."

And now for The Worst.

The worst invention ever, without a doubt, is the Epilady Hair Wrenching Appliance.


Ladies, how does this sound? Let your hair grow about a quarter inch or so. Plug in the Epilady Hair Wrench and run the hair wrenching coil over your legs. Scream in pain as each hair is ripped from its follicle. Then move to your more tender lady parts - IF YOU DARE!!!!!

I don't think we need to go any further with that one. how about another queston? Like I said, she sent a bunch.


Question: Let's say that you're trapped on a deserted island with no food. Trapped with you just happen to be a bunch of lovable little creatures. Which do you eat; the bunny rabbit, the tabby cat, the puppy basset hound, or the baby deer that reminds you strikingly of Bambi? Why did you make that heinous choice? (And, ONLY if you eat one of the critters will you be saved. Just deal with the circumstances.)

This is an easy one.

Bambi goes.

Ideally, here is how this would play out.

Bambi gets it first because he would most likely have the most meat and help me hold out the longest.

Next would either be the rabbit or the cat, depending on which one I could catch first. I am hoping the basset hound will help me out with this. The next one would be the other one.

Last would be the basset hound. Partly because I am hoping it would help me catch the other ones, partly because it would probably provide the best companionship and partly because it's too darn cute! How could I eat a basset hound?!!

Ok, one more...


Question: If you had $1,000 and had to spend it on yourself, what would you buy?

Easy. A Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi along with whatever other accessories I could afford. (Um, Hi Santa!)

Ok. So I'm off to a good start. One day, one post. Now be sure to check out Halushki for my sister's answers to a completely different set of questions.

Theme, baby. Theme.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post where I make my choce for Geek of the Week! Hope it's not you! Or you!

It'll probably by you.

*I forgot to mention that this is my dear hubby's theme song for when I try to drive the riding lawn mower with the yard cart attached. He's very ha, ha, ha, isn't he?

Well, that was VERY well done!


But now, I'm hungry for basset hound.

Just kidding. Those puppies are awfully cute. And yes, Bambi goes first.
