on the menu tonight...

Something new and different for our normal crowd--my first attempt at hosting the Carnival of the Mundane! We've got some great specials tonight, so I hope you brought an appetite with you!

We start off tonight with Cheryl, who reminices in Back in My Day about cheering at Univeral CityWalk and eating wood splinters and germs. This post was NOT made with any Pampered Chef products, of that I am quite certain.

Next, Tracy shares a juicy little tidbit about a popular menu item in Moldy Oranges=Love, "just another love story amidst the mold and the citrus." I recommend reading, but not eating, this entree.

Josh announces some happy news in We're Spawning, though I'm not sure it's polite dinner table conversation in some restaurants! (Spawning, that is!) We rejoice with them, nonetheless!

Speaking of inappropriate at the dinner table, Kristen discusses very attractive nasal irrigation systems in Finding Humor in Unlikely Places. Yum. You'll be ready to eat after this one!

If you still have your appetite, Postmodern Sass tells a story about having a beer at the end of her work day, and arguing about soup with the bartender. I recommend a side of, what else? Pretzels.

Now that the fridge is in, Muse is restocking with all sorts of goodies. Perhaps she'll whip us up a little something for dessert! (In case you can't bear to eat your dessert before your entree, you'll find part one of the saga here.)

Deputy Headmistress shares their Decision to pick out a new toilet. Our dinner conversation is beginning to resemble that of my own home, what with boogers and potties and all... I must add that I'm a little concerned when people say they choose their toilets "by process of elimination." 'Nuff said.

Enough appetizers--let's move on to some main entrees. We hear again from Muse, who laments that $20 Isn't What it Used to Be, speaking of chocolate and backpacks. Chocolate for a main entree--gotta like that!

Josh returns for the main entree as well, debating Why VCRs are Better Than Tivo. You'll be eating in front of the set for this one.

In keeping with the fridge theme, Maria bares the contents of her fridge and contemplates why she eats out so often. Perhaps she and Muse can compare notes as well...

Daisy offers to share the goodies she received in her Unexpected Packages--so, what the heck? Grab yourself a plate and let's move on to dessert!

Ooops! Ferdinand T. Cat hops up on the table to check out the spread and inform us about How to Live with Multiple Cats. Just so he doesn't lick the top off the birthday cake, like another cat I know...

Muse saddles back up to the buffet to discuss The Best Movie Theater, taking back with her some Jujubes and M&M's for the show.

Blundering American shares his thoughts about The Most Magical Place on Earth in two parts. You won't want to take the kids along for this one!

Marsha brings to the table a sampling of her best treats-- a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a morsel here, a morsel there, and more, and still more! Hope you're not too full to try a taste!

And finally, after all those goodies, don't forget to brush your teeth! Join Neil and grab your Toothbrush!

Bon appetite!

Lorie,

This is a wonderful entry! Stellar writing, humorous and enviable. Honestly, your writing just gets better and better.

What a week we've had around here -- everything's fine, but I've been sick, Dan's been sick and for a day or two (LONG STORY), they thought he might have juvenile diabetes. He DOESN'T THANK GOD, but wow...

Anyway, SUPER entry (as awlays), but this one was so special because you so beautifully honored the writing of others too.

Beth

I must apologize for not thanking you sooner for the wonderful job you did on the carnival.

I've hosted a few Havel Havelim and just started Kosher Cooking Carnival, so believe me when I say that the first couple are the hardest.

thanks again
