random quote 3 for blog

Random thoughts. They happen in no particular order and relate to nothing you’re currently doing or talking about. They are just that – random.

Quite often I set out with good intentions to do something productive, but sometimes it’s just hard to concentrate. Nothing in particular bothering me or stressing me, but I develop ADD on steroids which commands my every random thought.

Things like:

And so that inspired me to write this week’s post and the early summer edition of Take It or Leave It.

Here’s how Take It or Leave It works: Post your guesses (would I take it, or leave it) in the comments section below. I will post my responses Thursday. The person with the most correct guesses is my winner, but you must post another comment in the comments section, acknowledging that you are a winner, in order to claim your prize. It’s that simple. Unclaimed prizes will be forfeited after one week from posting the answers.

So, here you go. For the following list of things, would I Take It, or Leave It?

1. Eat someone’s leftovers from the community kitchen refrigerator at my office building.

2. Photobomb someone’s wedding pictures.

4. Wear something seductive to an audition.

5. Call in sick so I can stay home and read.

6. Play the damsel in distress to get some guy to do something for me I don’t want to do.

7. Kiss a guy at a cold reading audition if the script called for it.

8. Leave my garbage in the street if a bear or stray dog knocks the can over.

9. Try to charm a cop to get out of a speeding ticket.

10. Blame my mistake on someone else.

Have fun with it. I’m looking forward to your guesses. How about you – any random weirdness you want to share? What goofball thoughts trip through your day? I love hearing your stories, they make me feel less strange.

Word of the Day:  Tamandua

Fun fact about me:  My very first role on stage was the villainess in a classic old time melodrama. (Clementine Greedy was my name.)

It’s a new year and that means new ideas! So this year here at Blogging From the Edge of Eternity I’m starting a new game. It’s time for the first installment of “What Haven’t I.”

Question mark

For the first installment I’ll focus on theater related questions. Some months there might be a theme, some months it might just be random silliness. Either way, 3 of the 4 things listed I will have honestly done. 1 of the things, I have not. If you follow my blog, you should be able to answer some of these questions.

There are no rules really, just read the questions, the multiple choice answers and guess which thing among the four listed you think  – I have not. There’s only a few questions so it won’t take much of your time. Record your answers in the comments section below, because on January 30th, I’ll be awarding the first person with the most correct answers with a lovely prize. You can’t win if you don’t play.

I hope you have some fun and learn a little more about me in the process. Remember, you must put your answers in the comments section below in order to qualify for the prize. Oh, and you must check back to see if you’ve won because I will not contact the winner unless they acknowledge on my blog that they’ve won. Sort of like, you must be present to win.

Oh, one more rule – Husband, you cannot play this first round. (You won’t like the prize anyway.) As always general comments are welcome if you choose not to play along.

So without further ado, let the games begin: Irish dancer
