Friday on Saturday and Meme Fun

1. The last performance I saw live was the 9 to 5 musical.
2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is good company and delicious food.
3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is nearly complete.
4. Thoughts of everything I need to get done before the end of the month fill my head.
5. I wish I could wear that little dress of mine, but I think I may need to lose a few pounds before I can fit into it again.
6. Bagpipes remind me of weddings, parades and funerals.
7. And as for the weekend, Saturday I'm looking forward to finishing up the last of the holiday gift shopping and Sunday, I want to take in a movie, finish the laundry, and enjoy the day! Monday comes all too early and then it's back to work.

I've been tagged! I am not going to tag anyone in return; however, feel free to play along if you would like to.

Thanks to Melody, Jenclair and S. Krishna for tagging me for the Bookworm Award and meme.

Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following.

The following quote is taken from Anarchy and Old Dogs by Colin Cotterill.
Siri laughed. "About a man electrocuting himself in the bath?"

"Siri. Please restrain the levity. The deputy governor was up here recently paying a courtesy visit to the Soviet embassy. I'm sure you recall how their ambassador likes to give away those horrible Soviet-built appliances as souvenirs: irons, fans, soldering equipment, all that type of stuff."

  1. I had trouble with the things I say most often, too.

  2. How great that you're almost done with your Christmas shopping. I'm hopeless at leaving everything for the last minute.

    Most of your 7 favourite foods are among my favourites too. And now I want some cheesecake :P

  3. Almost done with your Christmas shopping?! Wow, I am just a bit envious there. I haven't even started.

    Six of the seven "attractions" you listed apply for me too, but I'd go with eyes instead of hands :-).

    At least it will be short work week :-). Enjoy your weekend, Wendy!

  4. I wish I was almost done with my shopping. It kind of slipped up on me this year. I love playing Minesweeper. Enjoy your weekend.

  5. Wow, you're almost done with your Christmas shopping! I haven't even done mine yet!!

    Enjoyed reading your 7 things meme. I want to spend more time reading, have some cheesecake and visit Hawaii someday! ;)

    Hope you've a great weekend, Wendy!

  6. Kathy - It was hard! If I asked my husband though, I'm sure he could've come up with quite a few things I saw all too often. LOL

    Nymeth - I would if I wasn't mailing everything! I was also trying to lessen the shock of the expenses this year. :-)

    I'm hoping I can talk my husband into having lunch at the Cheesecake Factory tomorrow. :-)

    Florinda - I mail most of our gifts to family and so I try and have most all the shopping done by the end of November.

    I thought of putting eyes. It probably would have been number 8. :-) I'm not sure what it is about hands, but I am always drawn to look at a person's hands.

    Janet - We're going to see Twilight. Unless the crowds are just too much and then we'll go see something else.

    Susan - I was determined not to wait until the last minute like I've done the last couple of years--thank goodness I stuck to it! LOL Less stress for me and less big spending this time of year, which is a relief.

    Melody - Nearly done. I have a few more things to get this weekend and probably will still need to find something or other in the next couple of weeks, but otherwise, all done. I wanted to get it done early this year.

  7. After seeing your post, I really must get going with my Christmas shopping. I haven't even started when you're almost done. You're very, very efficient!

    I like your "7 Things I Did Before" and "...After": Read books! That would be my answer too if I played. Hehee...

    Cheesecake. Yummm...

    "I wish I had more time to read" would be one of the things I say most often too.

    Have a great week ahead!

  8. Well done on having your Christmas shopping almost done! I can definitely relate to wanting more time to read and to sleep in without the boys waking me up! ;)
    And your 7 favourite foods list is making me hungry! I'm in the mood for some Mexican food now, it's been a while.

  9. Alice - The clocking is ticking, Alice! Christmas is just around the corner. :-)

    I hope you are enjoying your week.

    Nat - They actually let me sleep in today. I was so surprised!
