Alphabet Laughs-E Is For Eggs, Energy And Exciting News

Ready?
Ready Eddy?
No other Eddies
will be mentioned in
this post...so.....
Here we go...

E
is for EGGS.
click on pic to see more eggs funnies
When they tested my son
at age 4 to see if he
was gifted
they asked him how
many eggs in a dozen.
He said 12 but
went on to say that you 
could buy them in a box
of EIGHTEEN so that
was 6 more than a dozen.
(He was used to riding along
in the cart as I shopped for
our family of six-make that 7-
my mother was living with us then).
He also said half of 8 was
three.
I liketa died.
Guess what?
Gifted kids visually divide
numbers in half..
so eight (to most gifted kids)
is either 3 or 0.....who knew?

E
is also for Energy.
Some days I feel 
like I am the
Energizer Bunny.
I am thinking of ordering
myself this-

A BUNNY COSTUME-
just so MyHero
will know how much I 
do around here.

He thinks all I do is sit 
and blog-
Who the heck 
does he think
cleans the house
does all the laundry,
cooks,
 cleans his sink, AND
does the yard work?

Of course he would much
prefer THIS kind of
Bunny Costume.
click on photo to order one for yourself

Ha!  Like THAT is gonna happen.

ON TO THE
EXCITING NEWS!

Congratulations of 500 Followers! That's one of my goals too. In fact, I think I got most of my Followers from you, so thanks! Who knew that I would steal your Followers by leaving inappropriate comments over here?
Still, congratulations on that and for having a genius in the Family. Now go rock that bunny costume!

When I was a little girl, probably around 4 or 5, I was really into glamour and make-up and told my mother I wanted to be a swimsuit bunny for Halloween. Of course, I didn't know what it was, and of course, my mother said no. I was inspired by Wilma Flintstone b/c she and Betty had donned bunny outfits in a beauty contest where Fred and Barney were judges. Tee hee! I am not so into style anymore. In fact, you'll find me all summer long without any make-up on at all. Excited for your giveaway, congratulations on reaching 500!!! Wow! It'll take me another year to even think about that fare ahead.

Maria Elena said...

I really don't think men realize all of what we do, all of your followers have very good taste, they come here everyday because you are a kind considerate blogger with the best sense of humor and a heart as big as Texas!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Congratulations on 500+ followers. Very sweet place to visit!

Carolyn@Sweet Chaos said...

Congrats! Who wouldn't follow you... you're one of the sweetest ladies in blogland!

I just saw your comment on Martina's blog about the demijohns and candles in the 60s and 70s. Were you a hippie, Miss Diana?? :)

Susie said...

Oh Diana, I think you already have the white dress costume.:):
Count me as one of your loving followers. xo,Susie

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Enjoying your journey through the alphabet this morning Diana and again you have me laughing out loud!
Love the way your mind thinks!

Nellie said...

Great accomplishment, Diana! Congratulations on 500+ followers!

Loved the story about dividing the 8. Our daughter asked us, just to be sure she had the correct answer, how far it was from one coast to the other on the day she had her gifted test. She was very relieved when she heard she had correctly chosen the answer.:)

Can't wait until G Day!

xo Nellie

Beth said...

Loved this post. Made me smile before I have to head off to the dentist.

Congratulations on your 500+ followers. I like your take on the bunny outfit!

Nonnie said...

Yes. I am smiling too. Congratulations! Looking forward to G-Day.

Miss Kitty said...

Congrats on 500+ followers! You certainly deserve it for all your fun posts and wonderful commenting that you do on other's blogs! That egg photo is super cute. I would cause gagging and not drooling in the Playboy bunny costume (and I don't deserve the Energizer bunny costume...I'm too lazy).

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Congrats, D!
And I'd prefer the footy pajama version of the bunny suit...I think it's sexier. xxx,T.

Grammy Goodwill said...

Congrats on 500. That is wonderful. I love your pictures. I don't know who you find them all - and still do all that other stuff in your list. Two funny things - I was going to guess "P" for prize, Duh. Also, on a football blog I read, one of the fans was laughing at being called a "loon" by another commenter. Then you used that same word today. hehehe

Grammy Goodwill said...

Oh, and I love the story about your son's gifted test. As a teacher, I had actually heard that about the number 8, but of course, I'd forgotten it.

Cristina Garay said...

Congratulations on the 500+ followers Diana!! It's always fun to read your posts!
I'm waiting for F day!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME/Doublewide Decor said...

jewels in the garden +: ) said...

Oh my goodness Diana, am I so glad to have found you! Being your #504... I barely found you at "B" and I am so glad because you truly brighten my day!!
~blessings~

Little Miss Maggie said...

With the heat of the summer, you might want to reconsider wearing the stapless bunny costume. Much cooler, and it frees you up for all that vacuuming and dusting.

pollydove said...

Hahaha!!! You are so cute! Just go ahead and get that second bunny costume for your Hero ... what could it hurt. ;)

You're a hot blond too!

Blessed Serendipity said...

Congrats on your followers. I have enjoyed your blog very much. I love to see what you're up to and love your sense of humor too.

Kim K. said...

Congratulations on your fan following! I definitely think you need a bunny-type costume for Halloween. Maybe a cross between the two. Smile.

missy said...

Shelia ;)

Lynn @ UpCountry Olio said...

I wasn't a gifted kid and I guess not a gifted adult either. I had to really think about the 1/2 of 8 thing. So it's either a 3 and a backwards 3 or two zero's stacked on top of each other. That took me about 20 minutes to figure out??

Happy to be one of your 500 crazies!!

Petie said...

I can't quit laughing. This was the funniest post I have read in along time. Loved the egg story.

Ron said...

I am loving the ABC posts... you are too clever! I am happy to be one of your 500! I can hardly wait to have that many. I am not even half way there. I just started in January. I guess it takes a while. xo

Sweet Tea said...

I wondered who all those people were who have been hangin' around your blog. Now I know - FOLLOWERS!
Congrat's!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Congrats girlfriend! I would follow you anywhere, even in a bunny costume!

Jaye @ Just Trying to Make Cents of it All! said...

Well, I'm not part of the first 500 but I sure am part of the last!!!

You are hysterically funny!

Your newest 500+ follower!

Jettie said...

My oh my, can you imagine writing for 500....better than cooking for them, isn't it.

Tete said...

You're gifted, alright....just saying.
More like touched.
Glad you have over 500 of us who think you're as nuts as they come. I think you need your own show on cable.

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

Congratulations! 507 when I looked. Hitting 500 is kind of a milestone. :)
I think your husband would be crazy to prefer that bunny over you! Who could be more fun than you?

Faye ~ Wild Rose Vintage ~ Cabin Creek said...

Too cute! I thought I was already following you but I wasn't...so now I am...I want to be one of the crazies too!

Hi Diana, Your post gave me a chuckle tonight. I bet your hubby liked the playboy bunny costume much better. It seems like they always do. Congrats on your 500 followers and yes I am one of them.

Good gravy girl! You are so loved! My father was Edward or Ed and I so love the name! I wrote an Alphabe Thursday post about Edward once. One gal said she nearly did not stop by thinking it was the Vampire guy! There is a gal at Face Book who has a daughter who has a cat named Bacon and just got a new kitten called Eggs! HaHa! That Eggs is great! Love all your thoughts!
