Virtual GNO - Back To School Countdown

I did it! I survived Back-To-School shoe shopping with my girls. (We return Sept. 8th) Geez! With my oldest I wonder if she would rather pull a "Nell" and just go live in the forest. She absolutely HATES shoe shopping. Me? I don't mind so much. And you know what else I don't mind? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

Time For Some Tunes!

Simon Cowell said this guy had the "best audition ever". Well, ok. I know he's seen more auditions than I have. I will say, I like him! And this song fits for my dear blog friends :->

Danyl Johnson "With A Little Help From My Friends"

What a cutie. And he's a teacher too! Yeah for Teachers!

Time For A Cocktail!

Teacher's Pet
1 oz Scotch
1 oz coffee liqueur
milk or cream
Pour the Scotch and coffee liqueur in an old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Fill with milk or cream. Shake by placing a mixing tin over the glass and giving it one or two good shakes.

Hmmm... there is one particular Teacher at the school who always carries a coffee cup with them. Hmmmm? Could this beverage be in that cup? ;->

  9. Happy VGNO! Wow--that guy is good. He even got a smile out of Simon (which almost NEVER happens!).

    Sad news about DJ AM dying, no?

    I wrote a quick post about it. It just seems like such a waste. Here the guy survives a plane crash (when 4 other people weren't so lucky) only to die a year later. The worst is that it looks like it was another overdose. They found drug paraphernalia by his body in his nyc apartment.

    I hope all the sad death talk isn't ruining the mood for VGNO. Actually I'm really glad it is VGNO--something to take my mind of of that tragedy.

    OK...this is way too long so I'll post my answers for the game on my site. I love these games by the way!

    I'm working on the party game over at Pure Natural Diva....

    If you have a minute check out my Funny Green Tip - I found it this afternoon and I'm still laughing.

    The X Show piece was great... my husband has been watching over and over and over and over again....

  12. Ann,
    Can you tell me how you get the McLinky list to show up in your post. I have one for my (baby) EC list, but it takes people to the mclinky page instead of listing them on my page...

    My email is tania@purenaturaldiva.com

  13. Wow. I've been hearing about this guy but never heard it before tonight. He is good and there's just something about him.

  14. Hi Ann-
    Checking in a bit late but, I hope your had a fun VGNO!

    Love the kitty pic below :)


  15. I am tardy! Too many teacher's pets....

  16. I was not ready for summer to end until my kids recently started arguing with each other. Seems they are getting tired of each other and ready to head back.

    Fred Meyer, me too! Love their health food section.

  17. Hi Ann --
    I'm following your blog on my Facebook page -- just thought I'd tell you :)
    P.s. Don't you wanna join FB? Fun ...

  18. Hi Ann, I missed another VGNO but this time it was because I was having fun. Your party games are better then ever BTW! Hope you had a great weekend.
