I've got a mixed bag for my post this morning.
First I want to thank all the new faces that stopped by as part of the BEST AND WORST MOVIE REMAKES BLOGFEST. Especially those who joined me as Followers. I think I managed to return the favor to you all.
Thanks also to our blogfest hosts: Alex J. Cavanaugh, Al Diaz, Livia Peterson, and Stephen Tremp. It was fun.
Now I have to go back and pick up a thank you from last Monday. Murees Dupé from Daily Drama of an Aspiring Writer gave me this lovely award.
Thank you, Murees.
Of course this award comes with the usual set of rules, answer ten questions and pass the award on to ten other blogs. I hope Murees will forgive me but I'm only going to do half the award requirements. I'll explain a little farther down.
First, the questions:
1. Favorite color
This really changes with my mood, the season, etc. but I'll go with blue.
2. Favorite animal
I'm an equal opportunity animal lover (except for spiders) but I'd better say dogs since we have one in the family. Wouldn't want her to get in a snit.
3. Favorite number
Hmm. Never thought of it. How about four - I have four grandkids.
4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink
Hot tea. But not Earl Grey - sorry Jean-Luc.5. Favorite alcoholic drink
Pina Colada (I like that old song, too. Do you know the one?)
6. Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. I don't have a Twitter account. (Yeah, I know. Someday.)
Probably should say writing but to be honest, it's my family.
8. Prefer getting or giving presents?
I enjoy both but I think giving is more fun.
9. Favorite City
Toughy. I love New York for the theater but I've got to go with Boston - home of my beloved Red Sox.
10. Favorite TV Shows
During the winter season, I watch Castle, both NCISes, Person of Interest, and Elementary. During the summer cable season, I like Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Rizzoli and Isles, and Suits.
Now, here's where I'm going to fudge on the rules. Rather than choose ten blogs to give this award to, I going to give it to everyone who stops by and would like to take it with them. I'm doing this because so many of my blog friends have said they'd rather not receive awards because it makes them feel obligated to accept and spend time fulfilling the "requirements".
If you visit my blog and leave a comment, you've brought me a little sunshine and I'd be delighted for you to take this award along with you. If you have the time to answer the questions and pass the blog along to other bloggers, that's great. If not, feel free to accept it as my gift to you, no strings attached.
Now for the last part of my post title...See Ya. I'm going on a cruise (Yea! Whoopee! Vacation time!) so I'll be about as far offline as I can get for the next couple weeks. Try not to get into too much mischief while I'm gone. I'll try to post on June 3rd unless Sophie is so traumatized over being left that I have to give her my undivided attention for a couple days, then it will be June 5th.
Or should that be Sea Ya!
(Get it? Cruise...ocean...sea. Oh, I'm sorry.)
Joke of the Day:
On our vacation we spent some time in Louisville, and my wife and I were arguing whether it is pronounced “Louie-ville”, “Lou-i-vulle” or “Louis-ville.”
I figured we could find out for certain when we stopped for lunch. As we stood at the food counter, I asked the young man, "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are, very slowly?"
He looked just a little puzzled, but he leaned over the counter and said, "Burrrrrrgerrrrrr Kiiiiing."
