Thursday 13.....#29....the letter I


In keeping with the ABC theme, I am on letter I:


  1. Inches: I am 63" tall.
  2. Ice: I love Sonic ice. When we lived in KS, you could buy it by the bag!
  3. Ideal: My ideal place to live is someplace with seasons.
  4. Igloo: I have been in an ice Igloo in Fairbanks, Alaska during Ice Alaska, the world ice art championship.
  5. Ignorance: Ignorance is bliss or you just don't know you are stupid!
  6. Imaginary: I had an imaginary friend as a child....I called her Teacher.
  7. immaculate: My house was immaculate for about 8 hours on Tuesday!
  8. IMHO: I ALWAYS read this as "I'm a HO"....and I laugh every time.
  9. Imply/infer: it drives me crazy when people don't use these words right!
  10. Indulge: I love to indulge in a plate of cheese and bread.
  11. Imbibe: I am imbibing in a little glass of wine....another indulgence.
  12. Ikea: An Ikea opened near here. I have yet to go.

  1. Iron: This iron piece (totally knocked off from Pottery Barn) was made by Federal prisoners in Kansas ! (<---my local art from KS if you read my yesterday's post!)

OMG...prisoners making PB knockoffs? Does that mean they're making the Tarjay knockoffs, too? LOL

Buck Naked Politics said...

Good list, though I don't know what Sonic Ice is or IMHO.

Mine is up: photos of paintings (speaking of art).

Nicholas said...

That infer/imply irritates me too.

I never say IMHO because my O's are never H!

Great art piece! #7 was it during the day or night..:)Cheese, bread and a little wine..YUM! Great list!

I went by for my regular fix of Sonic Ice and there was no Sonic - they had leveled it! They're slowly building a new one, but I'm going cold turkey for Sonic Ice. I feel your pain!

monica- the prisoners can make pretty much anything you can find a picture of....I really wanted an iron bed. But we ended up with this...it only cost about $45! LOL Since it is considered custom, it is not a copyright infringement or something.

BNP-Sonic is a greasy spoon carhop type place....but they have the best shaved ice!

nicholas- I don't think mine is humble either.

mon-sun: thanks! It was while the kids were at preschool and during quiet time....after that, well back to the day to day stuff.

I'm loving the PB knock-off from the pen...classic! And much better than hanging a license plate on your wall.

Sandy Carlson said...

I too need help with IMHO. I like your prison art. I too am imbibing a little glass of wine.

I enjoyed this post.

tommie said...

sandy it is, In my Humble Opinion.....but I like "I'm a Ho so much better!

cheers!

A-ha. So to find you at RT, all I have to do is look roughly eye level and there you'll be. You've only got three on me.

Far From Perfect said...

hey, thanks for stopping by & checkin in, mean alot. we're freezin here in NE

MamaGeek said...

I'm a HO. Heh heh. I LOVE THAT. That should be a blog name. Once again, I'm clueless and will have to google Sonic Ice!

MamaGeek said...

Ok, just read your response on what sonic ice is...

tommie said...

mamageek- I tried telling hubby why it was hilarious, and he just looked at me like I was three sheets to the wind....I have just had one glass of wine. Since I normally only have wine on the weekends, I might be....but still...I thought it was hilarious!



"I'm a HO" ....tell me you didn't laugh!

Kellan said...

I have never used the word imbibing - I don't think I have ever even heard the word until tonight where you used it and someone else (Lunanik, I think) used it - I need to start using that word - it comes across so smart.

Great list - see you soon. Kellan

tulipmom said...

I do the same thing with IMHO!!

And my house was immaculate for 3 hours today. 3 short hours. Oh well.

Lady Rose said...

fun list! can't wait to see the rest of the alphabet
happy tt

Lyrical Press, Inc. said...

This was a great list. :)

Happy TT.

Don Mills Diva said...

Mmmm...cheese, bread and wine.
That is all.:)

Lynne said...

IMHO, this is a great "I" list! :-D

Janet said...

indulging and imbibing are two things I adore :-)

Wish we had a Sonic around here!

Laura said...

I never look at IMHO like that. Thanks for pointing that out! :D

Barbara said...

Nice TT. I love your explanation of IMHO! :)

Libby said...

I'm so jealous that you had an imaginary friend growing up, it strikes me as a very magical thing. IMHO. ;)

IamDerby said...

ya gotta go to the Ikea... so much cheap stuff!

Kay said...

What a great idea for a list!!

Jen said...

I really like these posts. You do such a great job. "I'm a HO." That cracks me up!

Patti said...

Good I's, our Sonic here still sells the ice by the bag. I think it's neat that the piece was made by Prisoners. Gives it a certain "cache" that Pottery Barn just does not have!

Brittany said...

I love the ABC theme!! Keep up the great TT's!

byrningbunny said...

Very creative list. Maybe I need to imbibe when I'm trying to come up with my TT13. lol
