Double T-800 Blog Party: Day 13

Lucky day THIRTEEN! Hopefully everyone is still having a good time and the prizes are at least worth coming back for. Sharon and I are having fun, and since we’re both battling flash floods (her basement and my mountain side), this party has been a great escape from reality for us!

Today’s Winners (according to are:
1. Jacqueline—A copy of Daily Morning Quotations, for those peaceful mornings watching the birds at the bird bath. (BTW, she IS named after the lovely Jacqueline Kennedy. I asked. Ha, ha.)
2. Theresa Milstein—A copy of Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr. Suess. Your son can read it and not even know it’s about him! LOL!
3. Jen Daiker—A copy of Daily Evening Quotations. Anyone up at 5 am to go to work has to get inspiration at night because there is no time that early in the morning!

Please email me your addresses, ladies, @ jackee(dot)alston(at)gmail(dot)com.

Not a winner this time? No worries! There is another chance today and the Grand Prize is still up for grabs. If you have already won, please feel free to play again. Consider it winning one of my gift baskets… one piece at a time. Here’s what you should do to play with us:

  1. 1. What’s your favorite meal of the day?

    Dinner. Nom nom nom nom! Though, I usually snack in between meals. :S

    2. What is your biggest pet peeve, the thing that can heat you up so fast you’ll pop your hull?

    Both of them are usually not at the fault of whoever does these things, but they really annoy me! Dragging your feet when you're walking, so with every step I have to head CH, CH, Ch....AND then there are those who breath REALLY loudly. I'm a terrible person...

    3. If you were king/queen of the world, what would be the first thing on your “To Do” clipboard?

    Abolish slavery. I shall gain love from the common people, and then I will have all the powers. :) -- what century do we live in, again?

  6. Congrats to the winners!

    Fun questions. Hmm, let's see...

    1. Breakfast - omelets, pancakes, coffee...
    2. Not finishing your sentences. I have a friend who does this, and it's very frustrating because it's like she assumes I know what she was going to say, but I don't.
    3. Enact strict animal cruelty laws worldwide, and enforce them.

  7. Wow! I'm on a roll! You can pack my apron and book together and save on postage. Congrats to the other winners.

    1. My favorite meal of the day is dinner. I love cooking.

    2. I don't like aggressive driver. Or when I've told someone something earlier and they didn't hear me. Umm.. I have a lot of pet peeves!

    3. If I were king and queen of the world, I'd set up a democracy. Maybe I'd set up huge environmental laws first.

  8. Congrats to the winners :)

    1 - Dinner

    2 - When the perforations on the toilet paper don't line up!

    3 - Queen of the world - so much to do... #1 priority - eliminate child abuse

  9. 1. Dinner=I'm on a soup kick at the moment!
    2. Rude, mean spirited people.
    3. I would stop all war, make people learn to embrace and live in peace.
    Thanks so much for the cool book=I'm a very positive person and believe we must choose happiness everyday!...BTW, my birthday is October 13, so 13 is my lucky number!...Happy week, Jackee!

  10. 1. I like breakfast food...but I'd rather eat it at dinner time. (Just not that hungry early on.)

    2. When my kids lay on my bed to watch TV in the evening and make the bed all hot and it's a hot day already...Ugh.

    3. Make sure all children had the opportunity to learn to read.


  11. Love your fun party!
    1. Dinner (as long as I can find something to make that doesn't take too long)
    2. Someone giving a group of kids (mine and theirs) a rule with a consequence and then not caring when their kids don't follow the rule.
    3. Get rid of all people who don't care ( or are rude, mean, etc.) about other people on PURPOSE.

  12. (1) Dinner, because I get to create.

    (2) I have a few, but I'll stick to spoken grammar errors ... Now that I've moved back to Smalltown, USA, these really get to me:
    - "Where's he at?"
    - "Oh, he did real good!"
    - "I'm going to go lay down."
    I know, I'm nitpicky and anal.

    (3) I'd be a horrible queen of the world, but I think if I was forced into the role, my number one goal (*flash beauty pageant smile*) would be placing every orphaned child in a loving home. I'm not sure a Queen of the World could actually accomplish such a miracle, however. I might need to be promoted to Immortal Superhero Genius or something, instead.


  13. 1. Tea. You just can't beat a proper English tea. All the tiny bite sized beautiful things to eat. The delicate china. The tea itself, of course. I SOOO wish I lived in England.

    2. Whining. It's even worse in adults. Yeah, we all have to talk about our problems. But you can do it a mature way.

    3. This one made me stop and think. Hmmmn. Institute a four day work week instead of a five day one? Ugggh. i think I could do better than that. Stealing the idea to abolish slavery, and genocide, and school bullying. Hah.

  14. What’s your favorite meal of the day? lunch
    2. What is your biggest pet peeve, the thing that can heat you up so fast you’ll pop your hull? Rude people
    3. If you were king/queen of the world, what would be the first thing on your “To Do” clipboard?
    Make sure my people were taken care of.

  15. Congrats to the winner!

    1. I love breakfast. I could eat toast all day.

    2. I *hate* by husband's toe-cracking!

    3. I'd make sure any aspiring write who's finished a novel gets published!

  16. 1. BREAKFAST!! It's for champions!

    2. People... especially whiny little 3 foot tall people! (Can you tell we're having a DAY?)

    3. I would abdicate! There is NO WAY I should be running the world!

  17. 1. Dinner. The family is usually all together.
    2. Being lied too. Grrrr.
    3. Pray for help!

  18. 1. Anything I don't cook.
    2. "mommeemommeemommeemommeemommeemommeemommeemommeemommeemommeemommeeMOMMEE!"

    3. Take a nap. Get a housekeeper.

  19. It varies between lunch and dinner. Whatever meal comes when I'm starving.

    Pet Peeve? I've got a couple. Hypocrisy, disrespecting senior citizens, and bullying someone (whether physical, mental, or emotional)

    Queen: Hmmm. I'd want to do something to make a lasting difference. End poverty? Find homes for orphans? World peace? Or maybe I'd just go ooooh and aaaaah over the crown jewels?

  20. 1. I second anything I don't cook, especially dinner!
    2. Rude people for no reason at all.
    3. I'd make the education budget much, much larger for America.

  21. 1- Breakfast! I love all the delicious choices.

    2- Pet peeve? When a car is hugging my bumper. It makes me all nervous. I just hate that.

    3- 1st thing on my clip board...announce annual chocolate day. How fun would that be? =)

  22. Congrats to the winners!!!

    1. Definitely dinner because I enjoy getting to eat with my family and we love our food!

    2. This one's easy - dishonesty! I just don't see the point in it. Ever. It infuriates me.

    3. Have to agree with Jemi on this one and get rid of child abuse!!!

  23. 1. The midnight snack. Because it's so evil and forbidden and oh-so-bad for me.

    2. When my computer misbehaves. I'm usually a very patient person, but if my computer freezes or refuses to do what I ask it to or "misplaces" a file, my head goes from Zero to Explode in about three seconds.

    3. Nobody would be hungry. Ever.

  24. 1. Dinner

    2. I hate when people flat-out ignore me.

    3. I'd make sure everyone had food and water.
