Feline Friday was started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
He has handed hosting duties off to Sandee, of Comedy Plus, and it's simple to join, just follow the link to Sandee's page for the rules and the code.
This is Ms. G's shyest cat, the rarely seen snowshoe Angel.
Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by Lorianne The Menagerie Mom of Four-Legged Furballs. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday. Please head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!
Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:
1. This summer, I plan to ___________________.
2. My favorite food at a bbq is _________________.
3. You’ll find me _________ at a party.
4. _________ is the silliest thing I’ve ever argued about.
1. This summer, I plan to work. Vacation is over already.
2. My favorite food at a bbq is any quality veggieburger.
3. You’ll find me talking quietly to one or two people at a party.
4. Anything i've ever argued about is the silliest thing I’ve ever argued about. Think about it, it's silly to argue about anything because arguing doesn't change anyone's mind!
