The Thursday Threesome

Is June really that close?:

::Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue::

Onesome: Something old- Do you have anything that you've owned simply forever? A cherished childhood toy, an antique handed down through the family? ...the family Bible?
  • I have my grandmother's engagement ring and her rolling pin. I also have some coins from my grandfather that are very old. Like I should have them appraised old.
Twosome: Something new- Buy anything new lately?

  • My husband and I both needed to buy new trench coats. You know the kind, they only get brought out for wedding, funerals, and special events. Hubby's papa is being buried tomorrow...well, i guess today and I'm having trouble sleeping so I'm up doing Memes.
Threesome: Something borrowed- Have you ever borrowed an item and never returned it?
  • This is horrible. I "borrowed" a box a caramel Giradelli chocolates from my pregnant best friend and ate them all. I told her I would go out that night and replace them. I completely forgot. A few weeks later she said she was craving one and did I have any? I felt like such a schmuck.
Bonus: Something blue- Can you see anything blue from where you are? What is it?
  • My husband and in-laws grew up Yankees fans since there is no baseball team in Erie. I see a teddy bear wearing a Yankee uniform.

Something blue: The writing in my notebook was written with a read pen.

I am not sure how you "borrow" candy. :)

What about books? I have a book that I have never returned. Dawn by V.C. Andrews. Someone lent it to me in middle school and I still have it.

I have the box set of My So Called Life on DVD. And another DVD that I have never returned.

I don't borrow things because I know I am horrible at giving them back.

"read pen"
gosh, I sound like an idiot. It was written with a blue pen and I tried to write red pen and spelled it wrong.

Good thing I just took some pills for this massive headache I am getting, it is effecting me more than I thought.

I just have to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. It is fun to find someone with such similar reading tastes (love Lois Lowry!). I would like to participate in the historical reading challenge...do you have a link for the "official" rules - and the hunky button? :-)

Thank you for the link. I love the "history is hot!" Too funny. And I need a smutty historical challenge to give balance to my 888 challenge. After reading several non-fiction, I feel the need to go to the other side!
