Not too much happening this weekend -- just lots and lots of homework.  I did go see The Help with my mom yesterday which was really good.  Everyone told me I'd enjoy it and they were right. 

And because I have nothing else to talk about, I decided to do another meme.  Yes, it's an easy out.  But it's this or nothing so take your pick...

Week Number 285

1)  Today, whose mouth needs to be covered with duct tape?

I live next to a row house and one of the families who lives there thinks they need to be out in their yard every.waking.moment.of.every.single.day.  I wouldn't mind this so much but they also seem to think they need to be very LOUD!  It doesn't matter the weather, they're out there in their postage stamp sized yard making tons of noise.  I wouldn't mind it at all if their mouths were covered in duct tape.

2)  You are a zookeeper, and one day a shady-looking man brings in what he calls an "exotic animal."  This animal is in a wooden box with small air holes on the top and the box is stamped DANGEROUS.  He throws a picture on your desk and you look at the strangest creature you’ve ever seen.  Describe it, and tell what you’re going to do.

The head is shaped like a horse and the body is that of a lizard.  I call the local news, end up on talk shows and become famous.  Eventually, I sell the animal which I name after my boys, Shiverchicos, to a zoologist and am a multimillionaire.  I never have to work again and live happily ever after. 

3)  Share three good things about your life right now.

--My baby boys, Shiver and Chico.  I heart them so much!
--School.  For the most part, I'm enjoying it.
--My mom.  I appreciate her more now that my dad is gone and I realize that she'll be gone one day too.

4) Show and Tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
I don't really have a story but it kind of reminds me of life in general.  The reason I say that is because there's a turn in the road and you can't see what's just ahead.  I'm not particularly religious but I do believe in God and I like that Jesus is in the trees right there.  All you have to do is look for him.

I think Frankie Furter has some extra duct tape if you need! That kind of thing would annoy the pants off me too. Glad you enjoyed the movie and hope you have a great week!

We spent the weekend packing boxes so I have plenty of duct tape!

That last picture is very cool. I didn't even notice the image until I read your comment. I guess the message is that everything we need is right in front of us, if we take the time to look.

My dear, this is one of my favorite posts of yours. I do not know why, it is just great, maybe because it gives us an insight into your heart and soul.
I laughed about the duct tape story - it reminds me of my white house on the hill and my neighbors there - I felt very much like you!
LOVE your imagination about the animal and they way you see the road in the picture, I agree completely.;)
And I so agree about the sentiments when it comes to our parents...
I think I better call mine today.;)
Have a lovely day dear sprinkles,
xoxo

PS: My verification word today:
infra
means "from within" in Danish.;)

I know the feeling of having nothing to talk about, I have it...I feel for you having noisy neighbors.
