Friday Fill-Ins #85

1. The last meal I had at a restaurant was at the Olive Garden after a movie a couple of months ago.

Being in a crowd is something I intensely dislike.

3. The full moon
mesmerizes me.

Toadchoker is one of my favorite local expressions. (It may not be local to Phoenix, but it's local where I grew up in central Illinois. The monsoon is bringing us some rain right now which is why it popped into my head.)

5. Sometimes it's best to
keep your mouth shut and walk away.

6. Mamma Mia! is the best movie I've seen so far this year!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to
reading a good book in the pool, tomorrow my plans include surviving another day at work then reading a good book in the pool and Sunday, I want to come home from work, jump in the pool and read!


  1. Yeah! Someone else who enjoyed Mamma Mia!!
    Enjoy your weekend ~Chrissy

  2. it seems your eager to jump on the pool.

    mine is posted here. hope you can drop by. thanks.

  3. I put keep your mouth shut and Mama Mia, also! I hope you have a good weekend.

  4. I haven't seen Mamma Mia yet, but look forward to it just to see Pierce Brosnon! :D I love your scrolling readers rights. :)

  5. I love the expression 'toadchoker' ;0)

  6. Yeah Maureen O rocks the house baby!

    Toadchoker ? lol - we say "FrogStrangler" lol - I like that one...
    Totally match on number 5

    Momma Mia must be a dandy. I'll have to check it out.

    Have a great weekend...

  7. I can't wait to see Mamma Mia!

    Enjoy your weekend by the pool! Sounds great!

  8. I am so loving the answers to #4!!! Thanks for playing, have fun this weekend :-)

  9. Yeah, um, I'm liking that part about jumping in the pool!! Twice!! ha! Hope you have a good weekend! :D

  10. Swimming!!! Have a great weekend!

  11. #1 -- I love Olive Garden but we don't have any here in Nova Scotia :(

    #5 -- You can do both? Not me, it's one or the other lol

    Thanks for the visit, and enjoy your weekend reading in the pool :)

  12. Y'all--of course I look forward to jumping in my pool! I posted a couple of photos on my blog about my favorite summer reading spot a couple of weeks ago so you can see it if you care to. I've been sitting out there peacefully reading and had a hummingbird perch on my hat and a dragonfly land on my book. Bliss for a book and nature junkie!

    As far as being able to keep my mouth shut AND walk away, I think it was just common sense kicking in. All members of my family are extremely stubborn. Once they got the bit in their teeth, it would be easier to chisel Mt. Rushmore solo than get them to change their minds. I'm not going to admit whether or not I inherited that gene.... ;-)

    As for Mamma Mia, if you haven't seen it, DO! I wrote a review of it on one of my other blogs

  13. I must go see Mama Mia!!! I would also like a pool...have a great weekend:)

  14. A new Olive Garden opened up in town, but the wait is always so long. Hubby and I have decided to wait a couple of months more for the newness to wear off and then we'll give it a try.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Cathy.
