    Post something self-centered and vacuous that you might see on FB. We need the fun here.  I'll start.

    Just tried a new sugar-free Mojito-flavored powdered  mix. It does have the mint and lime taste. Not sure how I feel about the pale aqua color.

    I just washed my hair and can't decide if I want to wear it straight or do curls again with the mini flat iron. It takes more time than I have in the mornings to keep it up, though. I think I'll wear it straight, easier up-keep.

      I got tired of my hair in my face, and the salon I previously went to closed,  so I hacked it off with scissors myself.

    My husband brought a really noisy tool in house without telling me and scared the heck out of me. He had on ear plugs. Sometimes people don't think about the power of noise I like quiet in morning when I work on writing.

      That is funny. My tiny dog loves to lay on piles of clothes when I do the laundry. He burrows in them to hide. When he got out and went in the kitchen for water, my bra strap was looped around his neck and he drug it along with him.

    I just ate dinner! Now I am going to brush my teeth! Then I'm going to put my pajamas on! Then I'm going to turn back the covers! Then I'm going to get in bed! Then I'm going to fall asleep! I hope I don't forget to set my alarm clock!

    I'll check back in the morning before I turn my coffee maker on! Then I'm going to have my coffee! In my favorite mug! Then I'm going to decide on breakfast! Then I'll probably watch the morning news! Then I'll brush my teeth again!

    Gee, my life sure is fascinating! Aren't you glad I'm sharing it with you?

    Frequent posts from a FB Friend: Tonight we're having pork chops, mashed potatoes with gravy and green beans and biscuits. Yum yum

    She is grossly obese and doesn't wear a bra for her dog to eat. Probably can't find one big enough, or if she did the cats would make a hammock out of it.

        I'm serious - try it.  I just had maybe a teaspoon of chopped jalepenos in a very small bowl, to steam them a bit (I do that all the time with onions, celery, etc.). The first time, I thought I was imaging it. You'd think they were sparklers.  I turned it off quickly, then I turned it on again - at a lower power setting. Pop! Spark! Flash! 

        I was afraid my microwave would blow up.

        It would make a great video, for someone brave enough to take it.

            No - it was a small glass Pyrex bowl -  I've used it many times in the microwave to briefly steam small amounts of veggies. The jalapeƱos literally threw off sparks. Quite entertaining.
