Things I Want Thursday

Today is Thursday, and my good friend Sass is hosting her weekly "Things I want Thursday." (TIWT) It's where you list the things that you want, and you hope that maybe someone will send them to you.  Or at least, you get a chance to whine and rant about your needs for a change.

And this week, if you play along, you may actually get a bit towards your list.  I'll be kicking in a prize to one blogger who decides to TIWT-Her.  For full details, see my TIWT-Her post from Monday for the complete details.


  1. I want to strive to be for Cora the man she deserves.  I'll never get there, but I hope I never stop trying.
  2. I want a bigger TV.  When I went shopping, I was looking at a 42" LCD but said to myself, "you'll never regret going up a size."  So I bought the 46".  Now I'm thinking the 52" incher would look real nice on my wall.
  3. I want to get a cleaning person for my condo.  It's not a "money" thing.  It's not a "stranger in your place" thing.  It's a "too shy to pick up the phone and call a stranger" thing.
  4. I want a new drug.  One that does what it should.  One that won't make me feel too bad.  One that won't make me feel too good.
  5. I want me right knee to not throb when I even THINK about starting running again.
  6. I want 5 of you to post TIWT so that the game goes on, and Sass and one of you win a prize.

So there you have it.  I told you want I want, what I really really want…

I want everyone to play along!!!

I want a cleaning person, too. But for me, it's a money thing. And a...my house is too messy to have someone come clean it, thing.


Cora said...

Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want... So tell me what you want, what you really really want... I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna not be late this morning.

Pffft! Wish me luck.


#1 - strive to whodee whatee? What are you talking about?! You already ARE the man I deserve, silly boy! :-)

#2 - If yours gets any bigger mine's gonna really start looking like an Etchasketch.

#3 - Want me to call? I ain't afraid of no maids. *snicker*

#4 - I just want one that will cure my tonsilitis. Is that too much to ask?

#5 - Thought are powerful things, aren't they?

#6 - done!!

Cora is lucky to have a man like you. I want a maid too and I don't have one for the same reason.

I listened to Sports a week ago or so. It got me thinking about there being a tight r&b-based rock and roll band popular today. There is not one I can think of. Music today sucks.

Cora's #2 sounded really dirty to me, but that's just the way my mind works.

I'm playing! I posted a TIWT on www.funnyisthenewyoung.com a little while ago.

Your goals sound a lot better than mine-- hope your knee feels better!

(I'm not actually funny today, am I?)

Ohmigosh. If I could have a cleaning person, I would have a crackpot full of more time on my hands. Yes, please.

As for all the rest, I kinda like it when you TIWT because we see a bit more of the Eric than the Scope. It's durn interesting.

OK, I did #6. And #1 on my list is for you and Cora.
PS I want a cleaning person too and it only has to be 1x. then they never have to come again. just one time I would like someone else to clean up!

It's too bad you couldn't have called Vegas to bet on the extreme longshot that was me posting a TWIT on my blog.

You would have cleaned up, my friend. Here's the link...

Lookee there at ol' Mike.

I'm so proud of my little sports fanatic. He's branching out.

Can't wait to visit ALL the lists!

What I want, what I really, REALLY want...is to get that damn song out of my head!

Candy's daily Dandy said...

I want a new drug too.

Wait, did I just think that out loud? Sorry.

Possum said...

Okay so here's the thing... next time I'm over on y'alls big 'island' I'll come do some cleaning.
(OMG my wine glass must be empty I just said that out loud!)
