Glimmer and a Giggle!

Badge1a

Let's start with the Glimmer. This is my pin badge glimmery chip thing that I made for my contribution to the Bubbly Scrumptious blog this week ... all details for making this and the stuff I used etc., are listed here.

Spot Lord Tim of Holtz's Idea-ology stash ... you know Tim ... the man that can speak 572 languages at the same time whilst climbing up Mount Everest in just a T-shirt with a single corner and a solitary foundation.

I have a bloggy shout out to make at this point too ... the very kind Annette sent me some stash and challenged me to use it ... so I hope she checks in and recognises a couple of the items on here ... Thank you Annette ... oooh and while I am Thanking her you should check out her blog too ... she makes yummy stuff ... really yummy.Badge1

Well that was the glimmer ... now for the giggle :0) This is a bit mean but it is also truly funny ... DD rang me up with it last night after she had successfully tried it on her boyfriend ... I told her how mean she was after I had finished laughing and then as soon as John walked in from a long hard night shift when I knew he would be perfect for catching out ... I tried it on him too.

"Morning" I says ... "Morning" he says ... little bit of chatter etc., and then I says "You never guessed what I found out yesterday!" "No!" he says. So I says "If you shake your head while you say Gullible it sounds like Oranges!" He says "Oh!" I thinks it is n't going to work and then I says "Try it!" and he did ... at 8am this morning and I am still laughing now ... go on ... try it ... I know it's mean but it is a lot funny too!

Have a great evening!

OF COURSE my DH didn't fall for it - he just laughed and rolled his eyes and said (and I quote) "Sue - you just don't have the face for it!" Is that a compliment that he thinks I cannot deceive?!
