OMG, I'm cracking up! Sarah, this Friday Quickie thing is hilarious. What a great idea. Calisa, I too have a guilty pleasure for shopping for cheap crap. My sister-in-law and I always say, "Let's go to Big Lots and buy all the junk we never knew we needed." LOL Love it. Aquaman, huh? I'm not laughing...no not laughing at all... Love ya, babe!

Aquaman? With the aqua blue eyes and water permanently dripping down his muscled chest? Yeah, I can dig it. Great fun!

Isabella Macotte said...

Loved, loved, loved your fun facts. Much success with Home!

Mackenzie Crowne said...

I love a good quickie. So, grandma, SIL and his mistress's baby? Do tell. I have some experience with that type of thing. Truth can be stranger than fiction, but a grandbabies come from heaven.

Calisa Rhose said...

ACK! I forgot! For good reason though. I think my cowboy story I've been warring with since September finally broke! Yay me!

AJ You are fun. I LOVE Big Lots! Mwah! Thanks for being first today!

Calisa Rhose said...

VONNIE! Where were you when I posted that tidbit last month? Seriously- people thought I was ancient or weird or something! They need to read this! Thanks lady! Love ya.

Calisa Rhose said...

Thank you Isabella... have I told you I really love your name? Thanks for the well wishes!

Calisa Rhose said...

Lol Mac. It's a long story I won't tell here, but yep. Life is stranger than fiction.

Calisa Rhose said...

I have to do some 'kid stuff' for a while and I'll be back later to play some more.

Jennifer Ann Coffeen said...

I love Aquaman too! Who knows? Maybe it's time for an Aquaman romance novel.

Lilly Gayle said...

OK, what is stuffaroni? I have to know! And BTW, I used to watch the Aquaman cartoon as a kid and I loved the short-lived series Man From Atlantis starring Patrick Duffy. He was kind of like Aquaman.

Susan Macatee said...

I used to love Aquaman! Of course, that was a long time ago.

Fun quickie!

Calisa Rhose said...

Jen- I still love Aquaman. Thanks for coming by.

Calisa Rhose said...

Lilly- stuffaroni is meatloaf in a stuffaroni shell baked in ragu and smothered in cheddar and jack cheese.

Yep. Watched the cartoon and absolutely adored Patrick in Man from Atlantis.

Calisa Rhose said...

Susan- USED to love him? I still do. Maybe more than I did as a child! lol

Calisa Rhose said...

Thanks to everyone who came by today! I can't wait to see some of you in a quickie with Sarah! Oh... well, you know what I mean. :-P
