Not Me

Some of my fellow bloggers participate in "Not Me" Mondays where you write about things that you would never do. I'm bad at keeping up with this. I did participate once here, but it was a Friday. And I'm doing another today.

I did not use the vacuum to clear off the kitchen table. Not for the stove either.

I did not send out a blank invitation to my son's birthday party on Saturday. What kind of absent minded mother would do a thing like that??

I did not actually consider using the glow in the dark pink silly putty for my son's birthday party. I know how much my boys love pink.

I am not dressing up as a zombie for my ice skating class's performance in the winter holiday show on Friday. And we are not skating to the traditional Christmas classic, Michael Jackson's Thriller.

I am not waiting for the last minute to start finish my Christmas shopping.

I did not eat almost every Christmas cookie that I baked.

I did not calculate what my grade in my Japanese class would be if I didn't take the final instead of actually studying for the final.

I was not secretly relieved when one box of Christmas decorations fell and a few were broken. What a shame that I wouldn't have to find an inconvenient place for that knickknack that an old co-worker gave me 9 years ago and I never always liked.

Yup, those are things that I would never do.

Those are AWESOME! And I SO did not use my vacuum to do that exact same thing this morning.

That is soooooo funny! I would love to get one of those. It sure would get my noodle working trying to figure out whose birthday or anniversay it was. lol

I didn't accidentally lose a framed picture of myself that I don't like when I was moving my parents to assisted living.

I kind of like this, Cookie. :)

Glad to see I'm not the only one when it comes to the vacuuming.

Vacuums aren't just for floors - I'm glad I'm not the only one who knows this!

I think if we renamed pink - called it something boyish - it might be acceptable...like call it zombie blood or something :)

Actually, I'm intrigued by this use of a vacuum. Did it work? Did it cause other problems? Do share!

What's great about this is finding out what you did do, while you weren't doing things, like having a party, baking cookies, n doing a Christmas show thing-
