Time for TToT, Ten(ish) Things of Thankful. This is not your Aunt Sally's blog hop, unless she's all killer and no filler.
Link up with Considerings blog, copy the photo below and tell us some things you're thankful for this week.
They can be big, they can be small, they don't really have to make sense at all.......just lawyer your way around that.
|If you saw my last post...sorry.|
Secondly, my smartphone. I know, I know. I fought it, I didn't want one, mostly because I'm a serial phone killer and infamous Thing Dropper, (my Kill List contains dropping phones in toilets, puddles, buckets of paint and walking into a pool with a phone in my pocket, just to name a few.)
Even when I'm cursing it for locking up, again, they really are little hand-held miracles. I have the hardest time getting TO my laptop, starting it up and getting anywhere lately. At least I can get some level of adult(ish) contact during my long days.
Thirdly, family parties. Post-holiday blues are better when you get together for good times. This is just ONE of the drink stations at my sister's birthday party.

Fourthly, my sister gave us an Elf on the Shelf game for Christmas. At first I said "Oh no, she didn't," but it's a different kind of game where you just hide the elf and your kids find him right away. My family is a big game family. They LOVE this damn thing. If we just have it sitting around, the baby gets excited and says "Found it!"
Okay, okay, I like playing with it too.
|"No, not THAT shelf!"|
Like Napoleon's favorite animal is 'pretty much' a Liger (Lion/Tiger.) You don't have to be an artist, and it's actually MORE funny if you're not, but it's totally hysterical. Here are sample pictures. I highly recommend this game if you can find it on Amazon, (I saw it there today for $10) or eBay, etc. It's a lot more fun that it sounds!

|Chicken + Zebra|
|Frog + Butterfly|
Used to describe the complete inability to find an item you're searching for just because you have to go to the bathroom so badly.
"The lid was RIGHT THERE but I just couldn't see it because I had my LAV GOGGLES on. As soon as I peed and came back, I totally found it."
Am I the only one who does that?
All the rest:
This is worth an ENTIRE post, so I feel zero guilt about ending right here on this amazingly high note. Maddox makes a late (but great) case FOR The Grinch.
Not only can I totally identify with The Grinch most of the time, this video and post make an undeniably good case FOR The badly persecuted Grinch, who had an entire song written about how rotten he is? And why? Because he didn't like all of the noise his loud Who-ville neighbors were making.
Doesn't sound fair, does it?
I don't like noisy neighbors, do you?
WHOO does? Sorry.
This made me cackle like a melting witch on a night when I REALLY needed a laugh.
I give you: A Case For The Grinch, video at the end.
This a break-down of the whopping 30 insults slung at the poor, misunderstood Grinch during the 3-minute song. That breaks down to 1.67 insults per 10 seconds, according to Maddox, but I can't math and I trust him so I didn't check it.
Curse Advisory: I'm 100% positive there are swears, that's one of the things I love about him. Enjoy!
