Do you ever......catch something out of the corner of your eye, look down and think some kind of weird and strange bug is making it’s way up your chest. You screech and start batting at it, only to discover it’s a piece of fluff?
Do you ever......start eating those teeny little cinnamon hearts that are so hot they burn your mouth – but you keep eating them anyway even though you hate spicy food?
Do you ever......notice when you forget to put the cap on the toothpaste for a few days and if you live by yourself with no one around to put it back on for you, that it dries up at the top? And when you go to use it – not because you haven’t brushed your teeth for a few days – but you felt like a change in toothpaste – you squeeze and squeeze the tube to get it out and sometimes instead of coming out the top, it squirts out the bottom?
Do you ever......get carried away so much by a book that you aren’t really paying attention to what you are doing when you make a coffee, and kind of forget to put the coffee mug under and when you hear that final gurgle and go to get your coffee, it’s all over the counter top?
Do you ever......find yourself running late and you just grab your purse, which is hooked onto the kettle and the kettle goes flying and you end up with water all over the floor and no time at all to wipe it up? So you just real quickly throw a bunch of towels and kind of stomp over them to absorb the water and then hope the floor isn’t ruined when you get home?
Do you ever......leave the back door open so your cat can look out the screen door and then kind of forget you did that and head off to bed – in the middle of winter – only to discover to your horror the next morning that you left the door wide open and unlocked?
Do you ever......keep track of your books in either an excel spreadsheet of an online book cataloguing system and still forget to add any new ones? And then you see the same book and think again it looks interesting so you buy it again? But by the time you discover you already have a copy, you’ve lost the receipt. You could turn them into a UBS but it would be ever so much fun to do something else.
At least I think so. And thus begins
Kristie’s Ooooo-psie Contest
The first book up is His Captive by Diana Cosby. I haven’t read it yet so I can’t give a thumbs up or a thumbs down. I got my first copy when it first came out and neglected to record it anywhere and kind of forgot I got it. Then when her second book came out, I figured I needed to get the first one - *sigh* and ordered it online when I needed a fairly inexpensive book to make the minimum for free shipping.
So – how do you win you ask? Well – let’s see, just leave a comment with anything dumb you might have done – big or small – so I know I’m not alone in my d’oh moments. I’ll pick a random winner on Saturday.
There will be no rhyme or reason to this give-away. I’m trying to get my books organized so I’ll have one whenever I discover a duplicate and think “ooop-sie”.
And an update to the previous post, and thanks to the wonders of YouTube, if you listen to Eh Tu Tom around the 14 second mark you can hear him utter those words he obviously stole from Smart Bitches. If you want to keep watching, the dance is pretty good.
But if you want to see EXCELLENT and missed it last night, this one was the night’s winner.
