Mama Kat's at it again!

The prompt that I chose for this weeks writing challenge is:

List ten things you can do in three minutes. I'm assuming I have three minutes for each thing to be done and not 10 things within three minutes. That list would be quite different, maybe, maybe not. Oh, who knows.

  1. Start an I.V.
  2. Lose my keys, sunglasses and purse. (actually, I can do this one in less than a minute!)
  3. Scan the entire 600 channels on TV.
  4. Go from vertical and talking to horizontal and snoring.
  5. I can mood swing from happy to being on the verge of crying to feeling okay again.
  6. Down a frosty mug of red beer.
  7. Walk to work. (this is actually a curse I think...too easy to call me in to work when I'm just across the street)
  8. Change trains of thought a dozen times.
  9. Whip out my laptop, hook up the power and the mouse and get logged on to Blogger.
  10. Convince my husband that it really IS his turn to cook dinner!

Okie dokie. That does it for this week!

P.S. Soo sad about Natasha Richardson. She always seemed really cool and she was married to Liam Neeson with 2 prayers are with that family.

i don't think i'd like living walking distance from work. i'd lose the excuse that the weather was too bad for me to come in!

Dan said...

I have to admit I considered writing about this - I even made a list and then changed my mind.

But I do have to admit that my proto-list had not a single item in common with yours. Although I could certainly do #8 time after time.

Son Tert said...

I can relate to quite alot of the things on your list, but 600 channels!!!! In South Africa we only have less than 100 (or something near there - I've never really counted), and I think that's too many. Good list.

ChiefChick said...

Mmmmmm, red beer....:)
Yeah, I am sad about the Natasha Richardson thing too. We leave for our yearly ski trip to Colorado next week and last Monday, I ordered us all helmets (after hearing her story, I am so glad we will have them.)

Keeper Of All Things said...

Wait.........your husband cooks???
That's just not fair!!

Mental P Mama said...

I am duly impressed. Did you know you won a prize at Kate's? I am envious;)

Pleasing Procrasinator said...

LOL..Change train of thoughts ONLY a dozen times? I am so scatter brained I change my train of thought and forget the previous thought all together.
I could use help on the IV thing.

Mama Wheaton said...

I'm with you on the train of though but I've never had a red beer. Maybe this weekend?

Mama: Absolutely! Just grab your favorite beer and add some tomato juice to it. I prefer it to be in a frozen mug and you can always add a dash of salt..I don't but a lot of people do.

PP: Been a nurse for 24 years. I can whip in a catheter in no time flat also! ;o)

Keeper: He even just bought himself a cookbook called "Anyone Can Cook!" I'm expecting lots more cooking now!

Mental P: Bwahaha..I got the mu-ug! I got the mu-ug.

Chief Chick: You better wear that helmet, if you died, I'd really have to kill you.

blue: yes I do, thank you for noticing!

Son: Wow, you guys are really deprived over there aren't ya? Perhaps Oprah will get to work on that.

Dan: You better get on the ball then dude!

Jaime: I still try that one. Did you know that you can actually hear eyes rolling over the phone?

Visiting from Mama Kats...

Wow -- we must be the same person! #2,3,4,5,8 and 9 are totally me as well!

And I just saw your little link to Pogo! A few years back, I battled an addiction to that site that bordered on ridiculous. I must not click on it and get sucked in again. Must resist.

Now I have another thing to add to my list: Lose horribly at Word Whomp because all knowledge of words goes completely out of my head at start of game.

Carrin said...

MMMM...Red beer!

I feel absolutely horrible about Natasha Richardson. How awful.

Namine said...

good post.
I didn't think of it the way you did taking 3 minutes to do each thing. Maybe I'll try that

Dr Zibbs said...

I'd kill to be able to fall asleep that fast.

Where were you when I need an IV? Last nurse I had took a half an hour and I looked like a pin cushion!

The channel thing? I totally get!!

Kristen said...

Those are good. I never even thought about any of those!
