3 – 2 – 1 Quote Me – Cinderella Today

***

I was tagged to do the 321 quote me Cinderella Today edition by Suze. Thanks for thinking of me, as these are fun to do.

You can also go see Rory’s blog for all the details. Thanks for having interesting challenges for us.

Now, I’m not really sure what we’re supposed to do with this…Cinderella Today prompt.

Here’s a cute clip from the animated movie of Cinderella, and a couple of quotes from it.

 

It can do magic – believe it or not  ~ Fairy Godmother

The thing-a-ma-bob that does the job is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ~ Fairy Godmother

Now, to bring it up to date…

~

Scene: Bedroom

Cyndi: (crying & ranting) “Those step-sisters of mine are bullies! They make fun of me, and order me around. They’re not the boss of me! I’m calling CPS”

Suddenly a bright orb floats in through the open window.

Cyndi: What the @!*#?

Orb (turning into Ru Paul): “I’m your fairy god-mother. Girl, stop being a snowflake. Put your big girl britches on, because I’m sending you to a fancy dance. You’ll dance with the stars, and win the mirror ball with the Prince.”

Cyndi: I don’t have anything good to wear to a fancy dance.

FG-M: “Where’s your phone? It’s magic, you know.” (takes the phone from Cyndi, and taps in a website address) “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo … here ya go…Amazon! Order whatever you want.” (In this tale, shipping takes only seconds)

Cyndi: (putting on gorgeous ball gown) I love it! Thank you Fairy God-Mother!

FG-M: Now, Shante, Shashay away. (floats out the window)

Cyndi: Turns on her laptop, finds the little blue bird, and starts Tweeting to all her friends. Takes a selfie with her dress, sends it to Instagram, because you know if there’s no picture, it didn’t happen.

As for tagging someone else, I don’t know who really likes to do these that haven’t already done this one, so if you’d like to play along, consider yourself tagged. 🙂

2 Christmas Books

Standard

2 Christmas Books

***

There are 2 books that I just have to read and have re-read every Christmas season. I dig them out of the far corners of my bookshelf, and can’t wait to start reading them again. I mean, it’s been a whole year since I last read them. I haven’t gotten tired of them, even though I know what they are all about.

Here are the 2 books. They are both a lot of fun to read. Both of them are laugh out loud funny, too.

First is, “Skipping Christmas”, by John Grisham.

It has also been made into a very good movie, which I’ve seen, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, and Tim Allen. You may have seen the movie, “Christmas With the Kranks”, which follows the book very well, but as with all books made into movies, there’s extra fun in reading the original books.

 

The next one is, “An Idiot Girl’s Christmas”, by Laurie Notaro. She’s one of my favorite authors, as I’ve read all her books, and this one is just as good. She writes short essays of her true life adventures, and they most all have a humorous take on her life. This one is all about the funny things that happen at Christmas time.

***

Anyway, just thought I’d share a couple of fun reads with you, for when you have a little time to settle in with some laughs. 🙂

20 Odd Questions – Wrong Answers

20 Odd Questions – Wrong Answers

***

As always, I’m late to the party, but I saw these funny questions recently, and wanted to answer them.

I saw them first on Melanie’s blog, and they started out on Rory’s blog. The links are below:

It’s Just Plain … Silly!

https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2018/11/14/20ish-questions/

Rules

‘It’s Just Plain….”

Ten questions for you to answer in the silliest way possible without giving the right answer!

You know me, l love quacky and wacky!

Don’t answer the questions the right way!

Nominate one blogger to answer the questions, but before you do, create 2 new questions of your own to replace 2 existing questions.

“It’s Just Plain …” created by  A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip! a pingback is always welcome but it also means l don’t miss out on the silliness either!

***

Keep in mind, these questions are all in fun, and are supposed to be answered wrong, or at least funny!

***

 

  • How come you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead? 

Because many moons ago remote controls didn’t exist, so now we believe them to be a magic wand. Plus the static electricity generated from our fingers sometimes will jump start the ‘troller’s’ batteries, you know…like magic!

 

  • If an orange is orange, why isn’t a lime called a green or a lemon called a yellow? 

Because there is nothing really that rhymes with the word ‘orange’, so the poor downtrodden color gets it’s only fame from being the only designated color & name of the lovely citrus fruit…called Orange.

 

  • Why is it that when you’re driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?  

Because the radio DJ might mention a number on the countdown of popular songs, or you might hear the song “867-5309 Jenny”, and confuse it with the address you’re looking for. It could totally happen! So…turn down that volume, okay?

 

  • Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?  

This is a trick question. Lemons squeeze out ‘real’ lemon juice.

 

  • Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?  

Because the universe is wack-o. And back to the lemons…lemon juice will lighten your hair, too. Will coffee slathered on your skin make it darker? I think not.

 

  • Why is it that people say they “slept like a baby” when babies wake up like every two hours?  

Babies are like little birds, always cheeping for their food. And that reminds me…someone might say of someone that they don’t eat much, so they eat like a bird…well, birds are ravenous and will eat constantly. They empty our bird feeder in a matter of minutes.

 

  • Why isn’t 11 pronounced “onety-one”?  

Because whoever invented language thought it sounded funny, and they were stick in the muds, who didn’t want anyone to giggle at funny words.

 

  • What disease did cured ham actually have? 

The disease of not being actually cooked. Cured, smoked, made into jerky…it’s all the same…raw meat.

 

  • If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons? 

Electricity comes from the sky as lightning. You ever seen an electrical storm in the sky? Freaky beautiful! You’d be a moron if you stood out in the middle of lightning, especially with a golf club pointing to the sky.

 

  • What is something that everyone looks stupid doing?  

Chewing chewing chewing

 

  • What would your autobiography be called?

“Slowly I turned…step by step…inch by inch…Boo!”

 

  • Which animal would be the King/Queen/President (other gender-neutral terms are available and can be used, here) when (yes, I said when, the AI’s won’t be taking over, animals will) the animal kingdom rise up and take over?  

Never mind the animals, birds, and insects…watch out for the plants! Can anyone say Triffids and Audrey II. The Venus Flytrap is a known specimen from another planet. You may think of them as innocent little fly eaters, but just you wait! “Feed me, Seymour!”

 

  • You’re on death row for a crime of your choice, what did you do, why did you do it, and what would your last meal be and why?

I would have been falsely accused, but I’d demand all my favorite Mexican foods. That way I could gas them before they could gas me.

  •  
  • If your pet/child or the fly that lives in your bedroom if you have neither, had to give you a reference for your dream job, what would they say and do you think you’d get the job?  

My cat Cricket would say hire her for outer space exploration, because she’s already an alien, and waaayyy out there.

 

  • A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?  

He’s here because I always take in homeless animals, and dress them in funny costumes. He sings, ” Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul…I wanna get lost in your rock ‘n roll, and drift away.”

 

  • How would you sell hot chocolate (cocoa) in the hottest country in the world? 

Skipping this question

 

  • If you were a pizza delivery person, how would you benefit from the use of scissors? 

Pizza delivery persons depend on tips from the customers, so they tell the customers they will cut up their ticket price in half, and then the customer will give them a bigger tip of money for themselves.

 

  • If you could have a machine that produced £100 for life, how much would you be willing to pay for it? 

Nothing…if all I got was $100 to last a lifetime. Wouldn’t be worth it. And, besides…whoever invented this machine wouldn’t want to part with it if it really worked, so I’m sure I wouldn’t be cut in on the deal.

 

  • If you could have dinner with three people alive or dead, who would you pick and why?

Skipping this question

***

Now, two silly questions from me…

Why do they call it ‘sun bathing’ when you don’t get wet?

What can you hold in your right hand that you can’t hold in your left hand?

***

Breaking the rules…breaking the rules…not nominating anyone this time…just go for it if you want to.

And…that’s all for now…hope you had as much fun reading these as I had answering them. 🙂

Heard Wrong – One Liner Wednesday

One-Liner Wednesday – A Birthday Boy

***

Sometimes I hear thing wrong. I’m usually not paying much attention to the TV or radio commercials when they come on, but once in awhile something will catch my ear because it sounds so strange. I mis-hear what they are saying, and it’s sometimes pretty funny.  For example, here are a couple I’ve heard lately that had me wondering what on earth are they talking about?

Besides parrots, teachers are the most influential persons to children.

Huh? Parrots? Really? Who knew? I’ve heard this TV ad several times (I haven’t actually seen the ad) but I still don’t know what they are advertising. What they really are saying is…’Besides, parents, teachers are the most influential persons to children’.

Here’s another one… I can’t remember exactly what they said on the radio, but it was something like this…

Kick back, take it easy, prop up your feet and listen to xyz (radio station), while sipping on some nice Bean-0.

Now, Bean-O is that stuff you take so you won’t get gas from certain foods. Sounds weird to be sipping on some Bean-O and relaxing listening to some music, doesn’t it?

What they really were saying (and I still don’t know exactly why) is…”sipping on some nice Vino” as in wine. 🙂

Anyway, I mis-hear things all the time, and makes me laugh at the absurdity of it. I really need to start writing them all down.
