How did it get to be Monday again so quickly?

Unless you haven't visited Blogville in awhile, or you've been living under a rock, you know that there are various fundraisers going on from July 7 - 20 for my new friend, Benny.  He's got lots of medical bills already, and will have many more in the near future.  If you'd like to donate to him directly, click here.  I believe there may be a $5 minimum, so beware of that before you donate.  You can also check out the Blogville Community Calender for a full list of events going on to raise additional funds for him.  Lots and lots of fun activities.

Took this from here.  

1.  Have you ever seriously thought you might be going crazy?  

I've had some several incidents of overwhelming sadness in my life that lasted waaaaaaaaaaaaaay longer than they should have, but I don't know that I ever thought I was going crazy.  

2.  You've discovered a new country.  What will you name it?

This one's easy:  ShiverChicosia.

3.  If you were suddenly able to have a 25 hour day while everyone else still had only 24 hours, what would you do with that extra hour?

My first thought is SLEEP!!!  But I wouldn't want to always waste it sleeping my life away.  Sometimes I'd use it to finish up homework or to get errands done that I just couldn't otherwise find time for.  What would you use it for?

 4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
A few semesters ago, I was standing in the quad at school, talking with a couple of friends about the class we had just attended.  Some squirrels started fighting in the middle of our conversation.  They were chasing one another through the trees and being very loud.  It caught our attention because it was difficult to hear each other talk over them.  The three of us stood there for several minutes, watching the squirrels running after each other.  In the middle of all this, some guy walked up to me and asked if I was checking out the owl in the tree.  I was so busy watching the squirrels that I hadn't even noticed the owl!  The guy said the owl had been there for a couple of days.  I tried to get pictures, but they didn't turn out very well.  The owl was too high up and the trees camouflaged him pretty well.  That's what I think of when I see this picture.

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for all the deets on Christmas in July, formerly known as the Doggone Dog Swap.  It's gonna be a lot of fun and you won't want to miss out!  There's been a few changes this year, and everyone can join in.

Great answers, I howled when I read the first question - a better one for me might be when do you seriously NOT think you are going crazy. These last few years would be enough to test anyone's sanity.

I was in Somerset House the other day, government tax offices built in the 18th century, now used for mainly cultural events.... and on a back fire escape I saw an owl. I was thrilled and crept up for a closer look but then I realised it was a life sized model owl! I still wonder what it was doing there!

Love the name of your country! And we are all ready for tomorrow!!
