Title

*Clap-clap* Okayyyyyy, people! <--I'm saying this in the voice of the girl the gym teachers always chose to lead the extra group, if they wanted more groups than they had teachers. She was 6 feet tall and played alllll the sports AND was a cheerleader, and she always wanted us ENTHUSIASTIC. She would divide us into groups and want us to choose "team names," and then she'd be all, "guh-ohhhhHHHHHH, ALLIGATORS!!!" Gym class suuuuuucked.

Where was I? Oh, yes! I was being perky and enthusiastic while clapping sharply. Because today is the day you should email me (swistle at gmail dot com) if you have tried (1) emailing your contest winner and (2) leaving a comment on your contest-winner's blog (if either of those is possible), and still you haven't heard from your contest winner. I'll make a YOO HOO! post and we'll see if we can get everyone in touch.


Also: if you have opinions on when/how to discuss The Facts of Life (that term will ALWAYS make me break into mental song: "You TAKE the good you TAKE the bad you TAKE them both and THERE you have...") with children, scoot your expert and/or opinionated buns over to Milk & Cookies.

I *just* posted my contest winner this morning, since I was out of town until last night. I'm not worried yet; this is just an FYI.

She might want to check out Anne Glamour at My Tiny Kingdom ... she had a FABULOUS story about sharing the facts of life with her oldest son ... so funny I cried.

OT but did you get the email from NetFlix? Keeping profiles!

Swistle said...

St- YES! So happy! Paul still won't forgive them, though. He has hardened his heart. "Too late," is his attitude.

Swistle said...

Moo- She is me! I wrote the Milk & Cookies post! I'll go check out My Tiny Kingdom.

God, I was that girl in HS. Where did that energy go?? Plus, I know I was annoying and sometimes did it on purpose. There is a special place in hell for me.

"There's a time you gotta go and show you're growin', now you know about....." I miss those days of FOL and Differen't Strokes.

Well, I have no advice but I did just find out that I still know most of the words to The Facts of Life song! I loved that show...

I just wanted to stop in and say hi and tell you that I got to go to The Children's Place Outlet in St. Louis this weekend. Although we've never even met, I actually thought about you while I was shopping and how much you'd love it there. I'll try and send you a picture soon of my treasures.
