I’m trying out a weekly meme each Friday. This is Friday’s Feast. It’s a ‘meal’ of five random questions ‘served’ to help you get to know me better. Enjoy!
Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim?
I have a child in my class that went through a brief spell of ‘mooning’. He did it once at school, in the restroom, and once at home. His mother also teaches with me. On Parent/Teacher Conference night, Mom had received a call about the incident at home. Some fellow teachers and I were visiting in the workroom having some laughs over the whole situation and we came up with a prank. Miss Librarian went to get books related to Child’s Name and Moon. There were plenty. We scoped out Mom’s location and waited until she left her room. Then we placed these books on her desk. Then we nonchalantly (yeah~right) wiated for her return and reaction. She went to her room and the returned to the hall~where we all were. We all busted out laughing! It was hilarious!
What do your salt and pepper shakers look like?
Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)?
I would love to travel somewhere on the East Coast to visit some lighthouses, but I’m sure we won’t on our next vacation. Our next vacation will be to a casino (Jedd), Tunica probably OR to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge.
What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry?
I use Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream and Mary Kay Satin Hands Hand Cream. I also use Mary Kay Satin Hands pampering set a couple a times a week.
Make up a dessert, tell us its ingredients, and give it a name.
Make a chocolate cake with chocolate pudding and poke holes in it-lots of them. Pour melted peanut butter all over to get into the holes. Melt some Reese’s Peanut butter cups and pour all over the top for the icing. This is called Peanut Butter Passion.

Ok. So I just got my Mary Kay order yesterday. Well, instead of reading the boxes first, I just ripped right into the boxes…like Christmas. Anywho, There are white peanuts everywhere-instead of the normal brown paper packaging. I’m like-“What the”? I am digging around forever to make sure I get everything out of the box…Mary Kay often packages the little things loosely in the boxes. Then I read the second box and it says “For easier access to packaging list and product, open from bottom”. Duh! So I open the second box correctly and it is much easier to get to my stuff. I just get too excited.
So about the white peanut packaging~there is a green slip of paper describing the new packaging. I probably already should know this stuff if I read my info closely…but it came as a surprise to me.
Anywho-the green slip of paper says:
Pink Doing Green
Your order has been protected by new packaging material which is:
* Made from corn and potato starch-renewable resources
* 100% biodegradable-dispose of in your garbage, compost pile, or by dissolving in warm water (septic system safe)
*This packaging material is not a toy-keep out of reach of children and pets. (And I was gonna recycle it for art projects)
Mary Kay is striving to keep our planet healthy by using “bio-peanuts.”
At first-I didn’t like this-hard for me to change, but being in Mary Kay I should be used to change by now. Since this is a good thing~biodegradable~I will like it now…even though it takes me longer to get to all of my stuff. Anywho-if you haven’t seen the new “bio-peanuts” and you are here: You have been warned-lol!
What are your thoughts on this?
