Friday Fill-Ins – Terrorize 7-11 Dressed Like My Neighbor!

Here we go:

1. The last meal I had at a restaurant was Hardee’s for breakfast yesterday, as far as sit-in goes… I had Burger King from the drive-thru for lunch (I tried to make a reservation for the BK spa, but was told it was already booked up ;-) ).

2. My neighbor and his wife (grr, he thinks he’s the manners police and she’s just a nasty witch) is something I intensely dislike.

3. The full moon is a big chunk of stinky Limburger cheese.

4. Duh! is one of my favorite local expressions.

5. Sometimes it’s best to wear a disguise that makes you look like my neighbor when creating madness and mayhem at the local 7-Eleven.

6. The Mummy 3 is the best movie I’ve seen so far this year! (I can’t really remember much before it, but I can tell you the last ten books I’ve read!)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to finishing New Moon and posting the review, tomorrow my plans include finishing Confessions of a Contractor and posting the review and Sunday, I want to reading a lot more of Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism (It’s such a fun book, and we are enjoying it even more than Junie B.!)!

Why You Shouldn’t Eat Your Boogers – Factoid #3

Question: Why do Texans wear pointy-toed cowboy boots? answer at the end of today’s factoid.

Oh no! Gonna vom

Does anything eat facial hair?

There are bugs that will eat just about anything, including facial hair. The American cockroach, Periplaneta americana, is a large, brown, winged cockroach, about 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) long. This cockroach is commonly found in the southern United States in tropical climates, and will often be found living in sewers. It will eat practically anything including leather, book-bindings, glue, flakes of dead skin, and soiled clothing. It has also been known to munch on the eyelashes, eyebrows, fingernails, and even toenails of people while they are asleep.

OMG, I am actually having to choke back the vom right now. Seriously, several things went through my head as I copied this factoid. Huge winged cockroaches like from the horror movies. They’ll eat book-bindings, oh no, not the books! They eat eyelashes and eyebrows Oh no, not the eyelashes and eyebrows again! I wonder if they’ll eat the mites, though… Gawd, I’d rather have the mites! Then the things they do while their victims sleep! I remember hearing stories at the meat packing plant *lots of roaches there, btw!* about people who didn’t clean their earplugs going to the doctor for an earache only to have a baby roach pulled out of their ear. AND children living in filthy conditions who have sores from where the bugs had been nibbling on them as they slept.

hand me a bucket!GAG!!!!!!!!!!
