If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be super comfy.
If I were the weather, I'd be rain falling while the sun is still shining.
If I were a facial expression, I'd be a grin with a dimple.
If I were a car, I'd be a stunt car in "Fast & Furious".
If I were a time of day, I'd be dusk.
If I were a month, I'd be October.
If I were a place, I'd be a library.
If I were a liquid, I'd be a limoncello.
If I were a taste, I'd be salty.
If I were an animal, I'd be a cardinal.
If I were an a sea animal, I'd be an otter.
If I were a food, I'd be popcorn.
If I were a color, I'd be sunshine yellow.
If I were a dessert, I'd be hot brownie sundae.
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be the piano.
If I were a flower, I'd be a daisy.
If I were a song, I'd be "Firework" by Katie Perry.
If I were a planet, I'd be Mars.
If I were an object, I'd be a crystal.
If I were a fruit, I'd be a kiwi.
If I were a sound, I'd be the sound of a baby sleeping.
If I were a day of the week, I'd be Wednesday.

How about you???

Favorite Musical Quotes

OK....test your skill....Who said (sang) it:

"You're never fully dressed without a smile"

"Practically perfect in every way"

"Isn't it amazing what clever girls can do?"

"Follow the yellow brick road"

"Whistle while you work..."

"Think happy thoughts"

"All it takes is faith, trust and a little pixie dust"

"Don't rain on my parade"

"Hello, Sunshine"

"If you change your mind...I'm the first in line..."

"When you wish upon a star.."

"It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star"

"I'm singing....and the rain"

It's funny...looking at postings on Craigslist....and seeing things folks have posted as "antique"....a Barbie doll...a desk with a roll-out keyboard....etc. Even funnier are the attempts at spelling...under the 'furniture' section, I saw an "autumn" two different folks. Wondering what the heck an "autumn" was...I was an "ottoman". Guess it didn't occur to them to use "foot stool"! So funny. If I did a search by the name of the piece of furniture, I think I would lose out! There is also the frequent use of "Sale" for "Sell"..and vice-versa...such as 'must SALE now'.....or 'garage SELL today only'..... or 'willing to SALE and deliver'.

Isn't an antique something that is AT LEAST 100 years old? And isn't vintage a nice way of saying old? So...guess that makes me more vintage than antique...though some parts are up for discussion!
