Picture Day
Yes, yesterday was picture day and it really was fun. Our school now goes K-8 and I stayed around to help the 'big kids' get ready too. I'm 5'10 and some kids are as tall as me already! (Good Lord! What are we putting in their food?)
I asked if you had any horrible class pictures. My oldest is in 5th grade so I will share my 5th grade picture.
I'm wearing a lovely denim jumpsuit, accented with my large right ear. A vision!
It's your turn, post a grade school picture. (I dare you!)

Time For A Party Game!

My goodness there are so many games of Tag going on! I'm going to go in order of date received so I'll begin with Mama of Romance, which in turn is also Cheryl's The Daily Blonde.

7 Random & Weird Facts About Me:
1. I can't breathe around manila envelopes. I just can't!
2. I HATE the feeling of popsicle sticks on my teeth, so I never finish one.
3. I prefer to have a candle lit in my house. Anywhere. It makes me happy!
4. I HATE a dirty floor. Walking around barefoot and stepping on crumbs! YUCK!
5. I could listen to New Age music all day. Not that I want to, I just could.
6. I HATE stores with fluorescent lights. Hate that kind of light!
7. I love white food.

Now, I tag you all for this party game! (Not you Mama or Cheryl, of course)


Time for a cocktail!
I thought I would share a recipe for a cocktail that was made popular during The Great Depression. (Gee Ann, why would you choose that?!?)

Champagne Cocktail
6 ounces chilled champagne
1 cube sugar
Angostura bitters
Soak sugar cube with Angostura bitters. Place the cube in the bottom of a champagne flute. Fill with champagne. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Yum!!! I may make this for tonight, or I'll just open a bottle of wine. Maybe both!

Now go mingle at our Girls Night Out. When someone leaves a comment go visit their blog and leave a comment. And when your blog is visited, go visit your guests blog. Keep the momentum going. And invite some of your blog pals if you like!
Come back though! It's a party!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
