Thanks to my blogless friend Roxane for e-mailing this one. And thanks for letting me get away with this bit of silliness as a post; it's a crazy week, and not a lot of writing is getting done around here!


  1. I yelled at your mom at the dinner table because I'm NOT crazy.

  2. I smelled an ipod in a hole because I'm awesome!

  3. I karate chopped my brother in your bathroom because I'm cool like that.

  4. Fun side effect of this exercise - figuring out people's birthdays :-)!

    Teresa's result, via e-mail: I sang to a homeless guy riding a motorcycle because I'm NOT crazy. (I love how he can still afford a motorcycle...)

    Kathy (Bermudaonion) - You're definitely not crazy - I wouldn't have eaten that stuff either.

    Callista - Of course you're awesome, but that's just a little weird...:-)

    Jessica - You're cool in all sorts of ways, lady :-D.

  5. I danced with a fireman in an elevator because I can't control myself!

  6. I licked a phone in an elevator because I'm NOT crazy.

  7. I licked my neighbor in a hole because Big Bird said to and he's my leader.

  8. I did the Macarena with a monster on your car because I'm NOT crazy.

    (If that's the measure of sanity, I'm a little worried.)

  9. I am having fun reading everyone's answers - hope you're enjoying it too! It's interesting how many people are doing things because they're NOT crazy :-D. But I'm not sure how I feel about all the licking going on...

    Ali - I think Belle of the Books might need that fireman more than you do :-).

    BelleoftheBooks - If you need help getting out of that elevator, Ali will send the fireman over when they're done dancing.

    April - Always listen to eight-foot-tall yellow feathered critters, I say.

    Ruth - I would be, too. Glad the monster didn't step on your feet while doing the Macarena, though.

  10. Okay...I loved my sister in the line at the bank because I think I need some serious help. Yes I think I do. :)

  11. Apparently, I did the macarena with a noodle on your car because the voices told me to! A noodle!

  12. As for me, I had lunch with a squirrel in my car because I'm sexy and I do what I want.

    As for the squirrel, he does what I tell him to do. Obviously.

  13. I kicked a squirrel riding a motorcycle because I'm sexy and I do what I want. So there!

  14. Mike - What a way to spend your birthday! Can't disagree with that assessment, though :-).

    Michelle - That noodle was probably very flexible, though - that's helpful when dancing.

    Patois - It could be useful to have a squirrel at your command.

    Cathy - Was that a very tiny motorcycle, or a very large squirrel?

  15. I licked Chuck Norris in line at the bank because I think I need some serious help.

    1. Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew!
    2. If I'm licking Chuck Norris than yes, I definitely need some serious help.

  16. Jill (Softdrink) - Was that the same bank that Mike was in with his sister? I am taking my money elsewhere - that bank makes people do some VERY strange things, apparently.

  17. I kicked a birdbath (while) riding a motorcycle because I'm sexy and I do what I want.

  18. Hmmm...

    I did the Macarena with my brother in my car because I'm cool like that.

    You can't believe how bad he sucked at doing the Macarena.

  19. Karen (PlanetBooks) - I hope you didn't injure your foot when you kicked that birdbath!

    Jeff - I should think it would be tough for anyone to do the Macarena in a car - there's not too much space :-).

  20. I had lunch with a gangster in line at the bank because I think I need some serious help!

    Oh my goodness....that is too cute.

  21. Jo-Jo - I hope you distracted the gangster from robbing the bank :-).

  22. I yelled at a phone in your bathroom because the voices told me to! :)

  23. I yelled at a pickle in an elevator because I can!

    This is too funny. Thanks!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  24. Jessi - Were the voices on the other end of the phone? I'm confused...

    Anna - I'm sure the pickle must have done something to deserve it :-).

    I LOVE the participation this is getting - thanks, y'all!

  25. I licked a surfer riding a motorcycle because I'm cool like that.

    And here I was thinking that I need to get out of the house more, but, apparently I don't !

  26. Dreamybee - Lucky that you live in Hawaii where all those surfers are :-).

  27. I had lunch with my dog sliding down a hill because that's how I roll. How fun!

  28. I kicked a stuffed animal Riding a Motorcycle because I think I need some serious help!!

  29. Kathy - That sounds like taking your dog sledding, which definitely could be fun.

    Beth F - That stuffed animal must have been doing something very inappropriate to deserve being kicked :-).

  30. "I loved a pickle in my car because the voices told me to."

    Um, I think that's rude. Really. I also think it would sting like crazy.

  31. Ilona - I think you have a good point; both figuratively and literally, it's not terribly appealing.

  32. I kicked a fireman in line at the bank because I'm sexy and I do what I want!


  33. Stephanie - It's nice to be able to do what you want...but you never know when you might need a fireman :-).


Now it's YOUR turn - speak your piece, please! Or just let me know you were here; I always like that. But you'll have to leave a name - I've disallowed anonymous comments due to some recent spam problems. Thanks!
