Toosdae ?'s

Good Toosdae to you my friends! I hope that you are having a wonderful day so far.

1. What band or artist do you think you sound good to when you sing their songs?

2. When you were little did you have a special stuffed animal or doll that you loved more than the others? Do you still have it?

3. If you had a parrot and could teach it to say any word or phrase what would it be?

1. I think I sound the best when I'm singing to the Indigo Girls or Sarah McLaughlin. I have the same tone to my voice as they all do and it's easy to sing for me.

2. I did-she was a doll named Baby Beth and she went everywhere with me. I still have her and she's still special to me, even though she's pretty beat up.

3. I would pick "You smell like cheese" or something to that effect because I think it would be hilarious when new people came over. I would have to resist the urge to take the bird to public places with me because I would probably enjoy seeing the reactions of others too much!

1. Evanescence. Although I do a mean rendition of Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show, too!

2. I had a bear that I got from the diaper service that my mom used, Dydee, and also a yellow blanket that I couldn't be parted from, even when tug-of-war with the dog put a bunch of holes in it! I still have the bear, but the blanket got lost somewhere along the way.

3. QQ More, n00b. kthxbai. :D

1.) Fuel, Pearl Jam or Limp Bizqiet

2.)No...but I had a favorite sock...lol

3.) "Look at the rack on that one" then whistle...this is really for my guy friends that come over =..lol

1. Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Reba, Faith, mostly country gals. I prefer to listen to pop/Top 40, but I sing country better.

2. I never was a stuffed animal/doll kinda gal. I was a bit of a tom boy.

3. SIT DOWN AND BE QUIET or GET IN THE NAUGHTY CORNER or GO TO YOUR ROOM. Hmmm...maybe I need more than one parrot. :)

1- Imogen Heap, Sarah McLachlan, Eva Cassidy.

2- A rabbit named Leo that had a hole in his leg which would leak his innards (small beads), so I safety pinned it shut. Still have him and he's still safety pinned. My kids now like to play with him.

3- I think I would teach it to say encouraging things like, "You are so beautiful!" or "You rock"... my own personal Stewart Smalley parrot. Then when I was having a crappy day, I could just go talk to my parrot! "You're good enough, you're smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like you!" Thanks, Stewart!

1. Keeping in mind you'd probably rather hear cats fighting then my singing - but hands down The Smiths. Besides, once their album is on I can't NOT sing along :-)

2. My bwanky. A blanket that was a baby blanket for all my sisters. But by the time it made its way to me it was old and not going to be useful for future generations so it turned into my bwanky. I still have it tucked away in a drawer.

3. "Have fun storming the castle!" would be one possibility - although once I start thinking there's so many good ones, I'd need a lot of parrots. ;-)

Happy Toosdae!! :-)

1. Schoolhouse rock... "Conjunction junction what's your function?"

2. I had an almost three-foot-tall brown teddy bear with orange on its paws. At some point it must have had a face, but by the time I was old enough to remember it, it had lost its face. I lost it in my divorce and move about ten years ago.

3. I think I'd like to teach it to say, "it is going to be a great day," and "God bless you". It would be refreshing to meet a parrot that said nice things.

Mo said...

1. The Pet Shop Boys

2. A teddy bear named Twisty, that was given to me by The Ruth Lyons Children's Fund, an organization in Cincinnati that gave toys to children in the hospital. I was born early, and had pneumonia. I had Twisty for many years, but sadly, he is no longer in my life.

3. "Pull my finger" ~ I think it would be funny for a parrot to say that, since they have no fingers.

Bond said...

1) not one...nope...no can sing...let it end there, ok?

2) ummm I had a blanket with a silk edge that i would tap as i went to sleep...i called it my 'pappa blanket' no stuffed animals

3) WOAH BABY... why? because i could! LOL

Colette, aka Lil Sis said...

1) I've been told I can sing like Jewel. I can't NOT sing when I hear any of her songs. I also sing to Sarah McLachlin or Indigo Girls, but I think I sound best when singing to Jewel. LOVE HER.

2) I had a stufed monkey I couldn't be without. It had the velcro on it's hands and feet so I could walk around with it attached to me! LOL

3) Hmmmm probably something silly like "oh..my...god...becky..look at her butt..." LOL I honestly don't know.

Travis said...

1. My talents lie elsewhere.

2. We call this a woobie. Mine was a little Tigger stuffy. I don't have the original, but I did get a new one at Grad Night in Disneyland. I still have that one.

3. Wooooooooooooooooo!

MightyMom said...

1. Gloria Estefan...I wanted to be her when I grew up

2 yes, yes

3 I love you pretty lady...

1. My mom, only she's trained and I'm not but we have similar tones. (http://www.simplilaurimusic.com)

2. Yes - my Kermit The Frog doll that also had a puppet head. No, I do not still have it anymore and it makes me sad.

3. I would teach it to say "Here FISHY FISHY FISHY!!!" a-la Ernie fishing with Bert on Sesame Street. Then to really freak people out, I'd crochet a bunch of fish and when the parrot would do that, I would throw one of them in the air (if people weren't looking at me. Totally ineffective if they are).

Lois Grebowski said...

Here ya go... Lois is her uncensored glory :-D)

1. Michael Franks (yes, the Jazz vocalist from the 1970s)

2. None, they were just stuffed animals

3. I would train the bird to say "bite me" (for some odd reason I say that a lot when people tick me off).
