A top ten of reasons to sleep in would have been helpful - I could have used an extra hour this morning.
I can see why you rejected the funny things cats/dogs do. Everytime you think you've see the cutest, funniest thing ever, they do something cuter and funnier and reset the whole scale (paraphrased from a Buffy episode but true).

Brilliant! Bravo! I could write a book about ways to avoid writing. Wait....

Cassandra - So true about furry children. Good luck on actually getting that extra hour if you find a way to go about it.

Elspeth - . . . I'm waiting :)

Stephen Tremp said...

Amen. I second this list, although I could use a quick casserole recipe for tonight as I don't have much in the cupboards and I really don't feel like driving to the store.

I would also have enjoyed the list of easy recipes for lunch! Sometimes I just CAN`T think of anything, even though I have masses of cookbooks and actually KNOW many recipes by heart. And I even kinda like to cook, but still I seem to come up with the same ideas. Do you know Lola`s blog? (Aglio, olio & peperoncino)She has the most fanciful recipes, but I never can THOSE!
Thanks for your lovely comment on mine!

Laura Eno said...

I love your lists! You managed a post while staying true to #1 - kind of. Lists are still writing, aren't they?

Carol Kilgore said...

Stephen & Angela - Since you asked, I'll try to put together a recipe list for next Friday.

Also, Angela . . . thanks for the information on Lola's blog, Aglio, Olio & Peperoncino. I've added the link to the Other Blogs list. I love most things Italian.

Laura - Thanks. I guess we could classify lists as writing. Right now, I'm working on a grocery list. I'd add it to my daily word count except it's pretty short.

Terry Odell said...

Carol - Yeah, my grocery list usually says "Food".

Carol Kilgore said...

Ha! Mine said
dinner
snacks
dog food

Helen Ginger said...

Go back and do that 10 ways to make easy dinners. I could use a list like that.

Ha. I'll bet you could do a top 20 on ways to, Put Off Writing, alone! Good list.

Things to take deer hunting???

Best Wishes, Galen.

Carol Kilgore said...

Helen - Since many have asked, next Friday's top ten will be easy dinners.

Galen - You're most likely right about 20 ways I could put off writing. Maybe more!

Deer hunting . . . this is Texas and deer season opened this weekend. I'm not a hunter, but I know plenty of them.
