Psst... R. Wattson, Here


School is cool!

Three days into the new school year and I'm loving life. Girls, school supplies, and all-you-can-eat-lunch lines. What more could you ask for?

Did someone say... "A giveaway?"

O.k., o.k. I know Claudia throws a bone your way every once in a while and if I'm going to get you to take me seriously about helping spread good ideas, then maybe I need to, "see the light" and offer up a prize too. I can do that.

But I have more than a prize. Check me out. Where ever you see me, you'll find the letters "H" "L" and "A" cleverly hidden . The letters might be hidden somewhere on me or somewhere in the surrounding picture... or BOTH. Wanna an idea of how many to look for this time around? There's a number next to my boot. That's the number of HLAs for which you should looking.

What? You still want a prize. Darn, you're a tough crowd. Alright. Here's what we'll do. I'm picturing a particular school supply in my head. You have to guess what it is... SPECIFICALLY. For instance, instead of guessing "pencil," you would guess "Dixon #2 pencil."

Here's how it'll go. We'll play hot or cold. You post your best guess and I'll reply either "hot" or "cold". Back and forth we'll go until someone guesses.

How's that for fun? Let Claudia try and top THAT today.

Where are the comments on Claudia's post?

This has been fun. I'll do one more round. If you guess as fast the next time around, I let one of you get a third round going.

O.k. I have an item in my bulb.

highlowaha said...

By the way... good thinking Heather. If nobody comments on Claudia's post today, she'll know something fishy is up.

Do me a favor and make a comment. We don't want her feeling left out.

Besides, much as a I hate to say it... she's onto something with those three fun events she wrote about.

In fact... if you all don't get hopping, I might have to snag one of those Super Bowl spots.

Good job AZLori and Katie. Gosh, Lori... you started and ended the day strong. Now if only I could get you to sign up for Countdown to the Super Bowl! You're on a roll. Sure you won't reconsider?

cspagradstudent said...

Heather said hole protectors, not me! Nice work Heather and Lori!

azlori said...

If I do countdown to the superbowl it means I have to go to the post office again! I do not enjoy the long lines there...I have been there more in the last 2 months with the peanut and shell game and the decathalon than I have been in the last 5 years total...maybe even longer...I'll think about it...

highlowaha said...

Lori... consider it an opportunity to befriend the postal workers. That's what I do. I also like to "eye-drop" on the packages other people are sending.

It's fun to imagine what's inside and to whom they are being mailed.

Going once,
Going twice...

Hi Everyone :)

I'm heading out the door to work at about 6:15 am EST tomorrow (Friday) ... and then heading out of town for the long weekend, and then when I get back, I need to set up my internet at my new apt (currently I'm in an extended stay hotel). So, I'm going to miss this community for a few days. Please know that I'll be thinking of you often and Tera, Treye, Katie, and or CKB, if anything huge surfaces, PLEASE call me ... b/c I still want to be active if at all possible!

Have a great week or so!
