Friday is a Shameless Tease

Resolutions? Ha! I spit -- *patooie!*-- on resolutions!

(What? You want more than that? Okay, click here. Because it's, yanno, Friday, and I'm at the Debutante Ball.)

May the force be with you! (That will make more sense once you read my Deb post.*)

*Yes, that's a shameless tease. Is that bad? Should I not have done that?

But, hey, while you're here, what's your position on watermelon? Love it? Hate it? Only willing to eat it so you can spit the seeds? Have you ever won a watermelon seed spitting contest? Are you wondering what in the hell watermelons have to do with resolutions?*

*Well, they're the same color as Yoda. (That will make more sense after you click on the link above, too. Yeah, yeah . . . I know. Shameless.)

I like watermelon - there aren't that many things we get to eat which are bigger than our heads.

Never tried watermelon seed spitting, but I've tried welly wanging. I'm not very good.

I love watermelon..but sadly not a fan of that one spot that drips down your arm and stays sticky all day.

my position on watermelon is that it belongs in the summertime, not in the middle of january.

fortunately, your debutante ball post makes up for this travesty.

Patsy -- What the heck is welly wanging? Never heard of it. Sounds interesting, though, whatever it is!

K-pop -- Yuck. I know what you mean. Hard to be dainty when you're eating watermelon. *grin*

Abby -- LOL! Hey, it got you to the Ball, didn't it? Score!

I dated a guy in college who was convinced that eating watermelon and drinking beer was deadly...the combination would create some sort of gasseous disaster inside you and burst your guts.

And he was one of the smarted guys I went out with.

Same color as Yoda?

Oh, you mean on the outside.

Best use for watermelon? Spiking them to smuggle alcohol into state parks. But that was back in the days of my wild and crazy youth.

I once went to a party where a whole watermelon had been injected with vodka. Kinda weird. But I must say, the seed-spitting got more and more animated as the day wore on.

Linda G. said...

Teri Anne -- LOL! If that were true, nobody would ever survive the Fourth of July around here. Beer and watermelon just go together.

LD -- Yup, the outside. And hubs tells me they used to spike watermelons in college as a way of smuggling liquor into the football games. Guess he was wild, too. ;)

Susan -- Ha! I'll bet. Apparently the watermelon spiking thing is more common than I realized. ;)

All melon is an abomination. *goes to read Deb post*

Live-In Handyman LOVES watermelon. Me, not so much.

I like how your shameless plugs are good enough and entertaining enough to be a whole blog entry in and of themselves.

And watermelon? My saving grace in Texas summer :)

I was never a huge watermelon fan, but I totally craved it when pregnant with my son. I am pretty sure that boy is made out of watermelon. And power bars.
Almost hump day, my Linda!!
