Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:
|We Would Make Great Library Cats!|
Lolita's RestaurantLolita's restaurant is closed on Mondays, however, when I called to make a reservation I got the recorded message that "Currently, all our lines are busy. You can dial 10 to be transferred to the hostess or try again later." When I dialed 10, I got another recorded message saying "Do not leave a message if you are calling to make a reservation." Wouldn't you think they could change their message on Mondays to let people know they were closed? I tried half a day to make a reservation. (The hours are listed at the top of their website, but I was specifically looking for the phone number and didn't pay attention to the hours.
Frosted FlakesFrosted Flakes' Tony the Tiger is the same age as my hubby--both born in 1952! I discovered this tid-bit when playing free Kibble on Wednesday this week. (That's where I first heard about the library cat too! The link is in my sidebar so you can easily play whenever you visit our blog. Not only do you learn interesting things about cats and dogs, but your click helps provide free food for animal shelters. Down the street, a family has a big blow up Tony Tiger on their front lawn for Halloween--it's cute. On second thought, maybe it's Tigger. (sorry, no picture--didn't know I'd be writing about this)
Trick-or-TreatIt was rainy but warm yesterday for the trick-or-treaters. I spent so much money on candy lately and we are so busy around the time they come that this year I wasn't going to pass out any candy. I just couldn't skip it though--I love giving out candy to the kids in the neighborhood, it's a chance to interact with my neighbors and it would be the first time I skipped it. I bought two bags of tootsie pops on my morning break, got home even later than usual but still managed to hand them all out. I even chased after some who I missed because I got home so late. What kind of candy did you give out?
Favorite ReadsOur favorite reads for October were Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff (Gerard's, but I am going to start reading it tomorrow) and The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton (also Gerard's) and my two were Unfinished Symphony by V. C. Andrews and a non-fiction memoir about international adoption from Russia: To Sing Frogs by John Simmons. Click the links to read our review and see the pictures of the books. Another interesting YA read that we both liked was The Program by Suzanne Young about the epidemic of teenage suicide and a prevention plan. Did you read any good books in October?
