Punked?



No, it's not snowing here; it's only raining. But it's a pretty picture -- and one can always wish.

I know that Harry Potter is for kids, but I enjoy the books anyway. I already know from earlier news reports what the title of the next (and last) HP will be. If you haven't already heard it and want to know, you can find it and have a little fun at the same time here:

This is not for the impatient; it takes all this stuff some time to load.

Click on the eraser and you'll be taken to a room where you'll see a window, a door, and a mirror. Look for the hallway in the mirror. Click on the farthest doorknob and look for the Christmas tree. Click on the center of the door next to the mirror and a wreath will appear. Click on the top of the mirror and you'll see a garland.

Then, look for a cobweb next to the door. Click it to make it disappear. Look for the chimes in the window. Click the second chime on the right and hold it down. The chime will morph into a key, and the key opens the door. Click on the wrapped gift behind the door, then click it again and play a game of Hangman to figure out the title.

There's a lot of serious news I could talk about -- political/religious tempest brewing in "my own back yard," another landmark case on euthanasia taking shape on the international front, blizzards, new flooding in New Orleans, yada yada yada. I'm going to leave it by the wayside, though. It's the holidays, a time for light-hearted frivolity and the serious pursuit of not over-taxing already strained brains.

I have a family party tonight, and two kids making their long way home tomorrow. We'd love it if the third could also make it but, alas, she (and her family) are so far away that plane tickets just aren't in the cards this year.

I did go ahead and stretch my brain just a little to figure out these Twisted Linguistics.

octual passed events - Programs skipped by octopuses; or actuarial tables for octopi.

You Are a Funny Gift Giver

Your gifts are wacky, offbeat, and even borderline naughty.
You prefer to give a gift that makes someone crack up...
Forget utility. You prefer to give something that's totally hilarious.



This one needs more (or better) questions. LOL. I seriously doubt that liking My Chemical Romance makes me Punk.

You scored as Punk.

Enjoy the party.

Liz said...

I scored as punk too. And I didn't understand half the questions!

Have a great party tonight and I hope the children get home safely tomorrow. Enjoy your time with them.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

***You Are a Practical Gift Giver***


Your gifts are useful, appropriate, and custom tailored to each person.
In your opinion, the best gifts are gifts that someone will actually use.
Your gifts may not be the most glamourous, but they are always appreciated.

That one hit me right on the nose. I hate getting things that are useless and I don't give them either.

You have a great weekend, too, Kan. I don't like the Goth look, can't quite picture what a Goth hippie would look like.

Thanks, Steve, and Merry Christmas to you.

Liz! We're both punks. You don't think this means we're dabbling with that second childhood thing, do you? LOL. I wish you a happy time with your family, too. Any word on whether Elder Son has made it in from Madrid?

I agree 100%, Roxan. I try to never give anyone something that they either don't want or will have no use for.

If I haven't said it here somewhere already (well, even if I have) Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Laurie!
