Weekend round-up, shopping spree giveaway ends tomorrow, and the rock with personality poll results

1. Pandora -    This weeks installment is about the driver's side automatic sliding door.  Okay, so 'member how I told you that sometimes I will click the button to close the back lift gate and just when it's about to be all the totally, total way shut, I hear ha! ha! and the lift gate will go back up again?

And really, I kid you not about the ha! ha!...  Anyway...

Well, now the driver's side panel is doing that too.  I tried to get a video but when I attempted to repeat it the next day, it worked perfectly - Which means the problem is unfixable,  or to use the technical auto-mechanic's word - Intermittent...

Tomato, tamahto...

The rock with personality -  A few weeks ago I posted (here) about how I hoped the organizing in my kid's room would pick-up speed.   The good news is my designer - a.k.a. the guy who power washes my house - had some time this week so updates coming  soon!

I'm bugged that his stuff's all over the house - The rock with personality, in particular. 


It was a birthday gift from one of his friends.

I didn't know what to do with him and threw it out there for suggestions.  Here's the results of my informal poll.


On a shelf...


In the fridge...


As a reminder to lower the seat...


At my front door to greet visitors...

And hey, this kills two birds with one rock with personality.   Seems the lawn guys had some sort of foliage conflab about my potted flowers and decided they must die.

Gazing at a rock with personality is a much better experience than looking at two flower pots full of weed-whacked amputee flower stumps.


He's kinda growing on me, okay there I said it...


He is not growing on Ginger and the suggestion he share one of her muffins didn't go over well.


This one was the very last suggestion I got.  It's  from Jan, a new reader.  I'm so glad I waited to post this because it's pretty hysterical...

" I say send the rock with personality around the world, one person at a time - you send it someone, they have to send it someone else, etc. Give him a name & send him packin'!"

Jan, honestly -  I love that suggestion to pieces.  If it wasn't for the postage involved in sending a boulder around that would totally have my vote!

But, like I said...   He's kind of growing on me.

3. Giveaway   I have a giveaway ending tomorrow and it's for $150 dollars in merchandise from Novica and you get to pick what you want - You just have to comment to enter.
Tell me what you'd like to get, tell me what your dog ate for dinner....  Up to you...

But there are only 60 comments so how good are those odds?

I like the rock journey too but shipping! Can't wait to see if I win the giveaway!

Babes, That would so be a hoot, right? Imagine opening a package and getting that rock with the googly eyes?

you know about Flat Stanley? you should do a 8x10 glossy of the rock with personality and send THAT around the world! with like a disposable camera, to your blog readers, and we could take pics of us, with the PIC, and send it back to you, LOLOL, much lighter than the actual rock, but same creepy googly eyes? or perhaps a Flat Felt Rock with Googly eyes?

also, I'd see about just taking Pandora out back and putting her out of your (I mean her) misery.

weren't there a lot more than 2 comments on this post? where'd they go? or I'm losing my mind and imaging things.

rock with googly eyes in the mail would be AWESOME! (even if it were a flat or stuffed felt rock with googly eyes)
