Good Morning Smackers. Today's post is a bit of random. It's the Monkey Minute. It's the Ducky Minute. And a heartfelt THANK YOU.
First, I want to thank each and everyone of you for your kind words words last week for The Duck and for me. Your kindness was overwhelming. It was a tough week to say the least and I appreciate your encouragement. I received so many emails, chats, comments, tweets, etc. I will be responding to all of them this week. Please forgive my slow response time. The only responses last week were updates for Ducky and keeping all of her friends updated and informed.
Now, for my MONKEY UPDATE. Week ONE challenge. I am down 5.7 pounds! I consider this a personal victory given the stress of the week I had! I have to say, The 30 Day Shred will practically kill you, but it definitely works! I know that I have several sponsors and I will be getting back to you individually this week! Thank you sooooo much for your support! You are never more fulfilled than when in service to others. My heart is full of joy knowing that we are helping that precious little face. Some have asked how and when to donate. If you want to donate a flat amount to support me on my Monkey Challenge just click her cute face on my sidebar, it's a paypal that goes to the Pixie Family. (Please let me know that you donated and the amount so I can keep up with amounts. My Challenge with Travis is based on who raises the most for Monkey!! I hate to lose remember???) If you are donating per pound you can do so in one lump sum on June 30th when we complete the challenge, but the same will apply, all donations go via the paypal. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. I didn't get back to most of you last week due to Ducky's tragic turn of events and I really really appreciate you sponsoring me.
Now, on to The Ducky Minute *snort*
1.) Do I snort?
Um...when I have laughter fits and cannot stop, yes I snort. Which only causes even more laughter. Jillian has nothing on ab workouts compared to that kind of laughing. Just sayin'. There have been times when my stomach muscles hurt for days when I have laughed that hard.
2.) Do I have a nickname like my friend Daffy?
I am the one who always bestows nicknames on others. However, I seem to have picked up several in Blogland. Zgirl, Tank, MamaB, TNT.
Also, my daddy calls me Jo. Which is short for BrandeeJo. Which is not my name. It's just Brandee. However, he wanted to name me Brandee Josephine, after my grandfather, to which my mother said...NO. So he called me BrandeeJo for the longest time anyway, and finally just shortened it to Jo.
3.) Do I know sign language?
I know the alphabet in sign and a few simple words. And of course, just like all the other languages I half ass know, I know all the dirty words.
4.) A sampling of Convos from my hood?
My "hood" is more redneck hell than "hood". This is typical convo overheard at the local minute market.
Guy driving Bubba Truck: (to tube top, cut off shorts, flip flop wearing chic with him) Grab a case of Bud.
Tube Top Chic: I ain't carryin' the bear(beer) you comin' carry(said car-e as opposed to care-e) it iffin you want some t'nite.
Bubba Truck Driver: Woman you ain't good for a g'damn thing. What did you even come down here for iffin you wasn't gonna help me?
Tube Top Chic: I came to make sure you wasn't flirting with them girls behind the counter.
Bubba: Go get in the truck bitch.
TubeTop: Eff you.
Sad I know, but I live in BFE.
5.) Do I sleep with electronic devices? (i.e. laptop, phone, etc.)
I don't sleep. But when I do, the crackberry is always with me. Laptop is usually beside me too.
