Friday Fill-INs and "Talk Like a Pirate" Day

1. There is no need to explain.

2. Where in the heck did the last couple of posts go? (wink)

3. Housework and phone calls this week is all I managed to do.

4. Prospects for the future are a mystery.

5. Live for the moment is the message.

6. Simplicity and tranquility are found in nature (like beautiful fall leaves).

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to hanging out with my kids, tomorrow my plans include a soccer game and the school's Fall Festival, and Sunday, I want to get ready for FINALLY going back to work!

Every year September 19 is "Talk Like a Pirate Day". I usually laugh it off and pay little or no attention to it. But TODAY I was listening to the local country radio station on the way home from dropping off the boys at school, and the DJ invited people to call in to take a silly pirate Jeopardy quiz and win some prizes. So I called in and I got through! The questions were: "Name the procedure used to save people" (CPRrrrrrrrrr), "We usually get around in this" (a carrrrrrrr), and "You keep jelly in this" (a jarrrrr).

So, guess what I won? 3 days worth of tickets to the Ryder's Cup Golf Tournament, which is here in Louisville this weekend AND 2 tickets to see "Larry the Cable Guy" when he is in Louisville in November AND "meet and greet" passes to meet him! I completely flipped out (in a good way)! I sold the Ryder's Cup tickets for $175 today through Craig's List. And I am totally pysched about having great seats to see a hilarious comedian AND we get to meet him. I have made an official date with Steven. It will be hard to wait for November for this!

For some hilarious pirate jokes, try HERE . "Talk Like a Pirate"Day is now one of my FAVORITE holidays!
Have a great weekend!

Valhalla seems an appropriate place for a golf tournament - you'd never get me to one in this lifetime.

People pay that much for golf? Seriously?

It sounds like you had a great Friday!

You copped some nice prizes there, J. Have a great weekend, and enjoy your electricity.

The future really is a mystery for all of us, isn't it? ;)

Janet said...

Congrats on winning the tickets and making a bit of money on the side! Woohoo!

The Ryder Cup AND Larry the Cable Guy!!?? Talk about luck. I am going to rub your head the next time I see you.

Superwoman - Thank you! I take full credit for my absolutely random luck! (laugh)

York - I once volunteered at a Fuzzy Zoeller Charity Golf Scramble and I completely amazed at the whole golf world. Other than that, you wouldn't catch me on one either.

Sushi - I would have willingly given them to you if you were here.

Eatmisery - Just a blog glitch.

Shen-shen - Thank you. I know, I'm a genius.

Desert Diva - They pay a lot more than that. That's okay - their folly is my profit.

E.Craig - I DO love my electricity.

Lisa - Yep.

Janet - Yeah, that $175 came in handy today when I had to pay the tree man to remove the broken tree.

Just Dave - But you''ll mess up my hair! (grin)
