Footloose and Fancy-free Friday memos

To: Bill Gates and/or Steve Jobs
in re: Making my life easier

Dear Mr. Gates and/or Mr. Jobs,

Sonic showers and a transporter would really make my life, especially my Mondays and Wednesdays, so much easier.  Could you please get your magnificent and genius design teams on this right away?  Thanks, bye.

P.S.  A remote control that could stop time for a few hours would be great, too.  Or a magic wand that I could wave and have everything done in one beautiful heartbeat.  Thanks again.

in re: Saving my eyesight

Dear cars,

If you must insist on halogen bulbs in your headlights, please restrain yourself to a respectable distance of 300 yards+ from my vehicle.  Thanks.

To: My characters
Re: Your sanity (and mine)

Dear Characters,

Could you just write the rest of this story and let me know when it's ready to be typed into the computer?  You know so much better than I who needs to be where.  Also, could you just give me a handy outline of the next two books in the trilogy so I have an idea of where you're leading me?  Thanks.

in re: Awards

Thanks so much!  You're very kind!

Jen has awarded me with the Happy 101 Award.

The rules are simple.  I have to list 10 things that make me happy.

1- Curling up with a good book.
2- My family.
3- My animals.
4- Successfully pulling off a fabulous recipe.
5- Flashes of inspiration.
6- My blogging buddies.
7- Mexican food.
8- Indian food.
9- Traveling.
10- Writing.

I'm supposed to pass this on to 10 people.  But it's so hard to choose.  So, I'm going to wimp out and tell you that if you're reading this, you've won this award.  Have a good weekend everyone.


  1. haha! Can I sign my name to a couple of those too? Especially the first one!

    Mm... love spicy food! Love it!

  2. I love your letters! I'll add my name to both. :)

  3. Love your letters and your list. Hope you have a great weekend too!

  4. Thanks for a Friday chuckle.

  5. Nisa, I'll be sure to sign your name when I send the real memo. (Complete with biography on why we deserve such wonderful devices, what makes us qualified to be writing to these men, and a complete breakdown of our design plan for such things.)

    Elana, thanks! I'll add you in, too.

    Angie, thanks!

    Liza, thanks for stopping by! Glad you enjoyed the post.

  6. LOL- very funny
    Congrats on the award.

  7. Hi Stephanie!

    Loved the idea of stopping time. That sounds like a perfectly fantastic idea! I could get so much done and when hubs got home, I can be like, "I just slaved away all day!" lol There's never enough time in the day!

    I'm with you on the headlights. I HATE those lights! They ought to banned.

    Love your list! #1 is definitely on my list too!
