LOL! I love it.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Those are great! All for number seven.

LR said...

Ha, good ones! Yes no 7 would be nice.

Laura Eno said...

I love these! #7 would be very cool. #2 can be cringeworthy as a participant.

Liza said...

Could be I'm participating in #2 right now!

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

I'm exhausted just reading about the events.

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda G and Delores - Grab an energy bar and keep going!

Alex and LR - We can dream :)

Laura and Liza - Each one gets higher!

Anne Gallagher said...

I like the Book Put for when the book is not very good and I "Put" it across the room.

Fun stuff, Carol.

Slamdunk said...

This list is timely! Have a good weekend Carol.

VR Barkowski said...

Great list, Carol. Can we add a #11? I've been training heard for the procrastinator's pentathlon.

L.G.Smith said...

Great list. I'll be going for the gold on the 100 word dash later today. :)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Ha! Great list!

J. A. Bennett said...

I need to crack my knuckles and work on that 100 word dash today :)

Johanna Garth said...

Those were so cute. I'm glad it's only 100 word dash. I can do that, it's the 2000 word dash that leaves me a little tired.

Mason Canyon said...
