Friday Fun: Stuff and Things

It’s been a rainy, cool week. I am not complaining, I’m just saying. And I actually don’t mind the rain because people stay indoors and it’s nice and quiet in our neighbourhood. And when it’s nice and quiet, I enjoy just sitting and relaxing and letting my mind wander a bit. Not worry about things, or plan things, or organize things, or anything like that — just some quiet time to relax and daydream. Or whatever.

So today’s Fun is all sort of random, and relaxed, and a bit of this and that. Some stuff, and some things.

Tell me:

  1. … the last thing you bought at a hardware store
  2. … the best colour for a balloon
  3. … something you’d like to buy, if you had the money
  4. … a good name for a guinea pig
  5. … something little that annoys you big time
  6. … your favourite quiet place
  7. … a song that gets stuck in your head and you can’t get it out (or, as some people call it, an “earworm”)
  8. … your favourite game to play
  9. … what’s in the cupboard or drawer beside your kitchen sink
  10. … what would be on a really good pizza
  11. … two yellow things in your house
  12. … three things I should make with this block of cheddar I have

And so now, I’m off to do… stuff. Maybe garden. Maybe bake something. Hard to say, really.

I’ll post my answers… later.

    1. Fire escape ladders for our homestudy.
    2. I think balloons are best in metallic colours. And I think purple is best, despite what Nena and the ’80s have to say about it.
    3. A deck on the back of our house would be nice. And a finished basement. Also? Fixing the A/C in my car would be good.
    4. Well I recently heard of a guinea pig named Batman. I thought that was nice. But I prefer something with a little more dignity, like Julian or Wallace or Melvin.
    5. Whiskers on the bathroom vanity and around the sink. BLEUCH.
    6. There’s a Zen garden in Kyoto that I used to love to visit when I needed a quiet place. But I also love to sit on the deck at the cottage on a September weekday morning after everyone has gone home to go back to work or school or whatever.
    7. Lately it’s been “Stand Down Margaret” by The English Beat that’s been stuck in my head. There’s much worse than that, though, so I can’t complain.

    9. All my baking odds and ends — hand mixers, pastry blender, attachments for my mixer — are in the drawer. And the cupboard is my lazy susan full of food.
