Thursday 13.....#37....the letter Q


In keeping with the ABC theme for 2008, I am on letter Q:

glass flowers, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

1. quickly: So excited we sold the house so quickly (in about 30 something days!!). If you look closely, you can see the house across the street unside down in the glass.

2. queen: I do hope my friend Claudia gets her queen bees.

3. QVC: I have bought stuff from there.

4. Quiznos: love me some Quiznos....good thing they don't have a drive through

5. quit: I quit teaching five years ago this month! I had to go on bedrest while pregnant with Will shortly after Spring Break. I never went back.

6. quiet: those words have NEVER been used to describe me.

7. quite: I am not quite sure if I am ready to do a move again! I guess it doesn't matter if I am or not!

8. quake: The first time I felt an earth quake was when we lived in the east Bay of SF three years ago.

9. quarters: I have all the state quarters since they started releasing them.

10. quarters (as in housing on post): I hope we get quarters on post in the old historic district at Fort Knox.

11. quarrel: I hate to quarrel with anyone.

12. quack: My mom frequently tries quack-like meds. My favorite one she tried was something called colidial water.

13. quote: favorite quote, okay it is a song lyric From Stand by Rascal Flatts
You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless, like you've lost your fight
But you'll be alright, you'll be alright
Chorus:'Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend 'til you break'
Cause it's all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad, you get strong
Wipe you hands, shake it off
Then you stand, then you stand

You did great with those Qs. My husband is trying a quack diet. I hope I can put him on the O list, as in over it!

Thanks for the read.

I hope I get my bees too! :) Thanks for the shout out! Hey, I'm looking up the Nickelback tour dates for the summer. We should meet somewhere and go - leave hubby with the kids or better yet, drop kids with grandma and we'll rock it. (Of course, I'd love to meet the kids - just not really at a concert?) My beloved BB hasn't posted their summer schedule. They were touring with Seether but Seether was just here. (I can only find their European tour in the fall - so they haven't released their summer tour either... grr...)

Anyway... lots of fun now that the house is sold! fingers crossed that it all works.

I can't even come up with one q-word during a game of Scrabble. Ugh.

Love Quiznos!

I don't think I knew you were a teacher! I bet you were great at it, tho, you're so creative and good with kids!

Did the colloidal water help your Mom?

HA! I would LOVE Quizno's to open a drive through! And I love that glass shot - it's an awesome technique and the exposure is PERFECT!

Yay! You sold your home so quickly. Congrats!

You take such good pictures!

Some of the base quarters are very nice, others-- not so much. :) I've seen the full range, as I'm sure you have too. Scary! LOL

I love the picture!! Looks awesome! happy TT!

Patti said...

We only have one Quiznos here and every single time I have been there the service SUCKED so I no longer go. I imagine it's really good at a good one :)
