Have you ever asked yourself the really hard questions...

..the ones that are a mystery of life??


 Like...

...how come I don't know how long my arms are? or..

how do they get all those photos from New Jersey to my home in Utah..through. the. air???



..and if mine are in the air, how many others' are? And do they bump into mine? Or are some floating off..and if so..where..??

Well, you can see how my mind has been so busy.  And some questions come out of, well, kinda nowhere. 

OK, they come out of things I read on Pinterest..

I read that you can spray your car windows with a mixture of vinegar and water and this will prevent ice and snow from sticking..


..and living in Utah, well that could be quite handy..



Sounds good..but I got to thinking..why doesn't the vinegar freeze? I know alcohol doesn't freeze, but why not vinegar?  Is it made of alcohol?  What exactly is it made of/



I have heard that when wine goes bad, it can turn to vinegar.so...is it from grapes? And so if vinegar goes bad..does it turn to alcohol?

Is there a vinegar plant? Is it from trees? Or from a vegetable?

So, I go look on the vinegar label..and the ingredient list is short..


"100 % distilled vinegar"

Ohhkaay...

My questions go unanswered..

So if any of my photos bump into yours, just send them my way.and I'll do the same.

I've gotta sign off now. Found a tape measure and I'm going to measure my arms..and try to find that vinegar plant..

PS..I just love spell check..I just found out I spelled "alcohol" wrong..in 3 different ways and "vinegar" 2 different ways..all in the same post..?!

Ah well..have a good Monday, OK?

Mwahaha, your mind is amazing! Here's some answers...http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110307211900AArYrye
And a little more info. I read that the length from your elbow to your wrist is the same length as your foot...Well, looking at my arm I thought 'no way!' but it is, I measured. And I'm glad our words are bumping togeter out there somewhere:) Have a great week:)

Okay, now Vicki/Jane has me doing calisthentics first thing this morning. Oh my. I was not made to bend this way. Your posts are so much fun. I look forward to them...feel a little giddy when I'm starting the first sentence knowing how much fun it's going to be.

Oh, oh! I know that your wing span--arms held out--is the same length as you are tall. And according to "Jerry McQuire" the human head weighs eight pounds. Great minds bump around into each other I'm sure. My thoughts are really troublingly confused at times. And I don't spell well either. I love your uniqueness.

Good Heavens. All you guys with your exercises this morning. I just tried the foot. True. I'm try the arms spread out and put myself into that space to see if that's true but ....well...that's just not going to work. I'll take Jo's word for it. She reads alot. Oh..and the vinegar? I have no idea except that I use it in the dishwasher all the time and glasses come out oh so sparkley and nice.

If I bump into your photos I may just keep them, you always have the best ones! I love Pinteret. Will I even find time to make everything I have pinned?

Hmmmmmmm, you pose questions I have never thought of before. And probably won't give another thought to until I look at a bottle of vinegar, Really my foot is as long as from my elbow to my wrist?

SNORT!!!!
This made me laugh!

I have wondered what the air must look like if we could "see" the texts, and pictures and emails floating out there.

Now get back on pinterest so your mind can relax!

I love the picture drawn on the car windows! I am so doing that.
In this part of Idaho I know I'll have plenty of chances!

You crack me up! I am really trying to stay away from Pinterest. I have heard from some others how addicting it is and I am afraid to start for fear I will get lost in all things Pinterest!

So, when these pictures go through the air, are they like little sparkles like on Star Trek? What if ours mix up in space/time travel, will you have my face and your body? Hmmmmm, I wonder....

Pearl said...

Thats why I like Pinterest it makes you think! True sometimes it leaves you with more questions then answers but once you find it out you think, gosh this means I are smart :)

Laurie said...

I'm on Pinterest with you Colleen!! I can't get away from it, and am often asking myself, what is so fascinating about this! But it is!

diane b said...

hee hee you have me giggling again. Thank you. Did you know that when you stretch out your arms to your side the distance from the longest finger tip to the finger tip on the other hand that it is the same as your height.

A Wild Thing said...

I don't want help...I start off and end my day with a smile, who could ask for more!!!

Heart Pinterest!

You are doing WAY too much thinking Colleen! You should be doing something much more productive - like watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That show is so mind numbing that you aren't able to think after you watch it. You just want another glass of wine!

I've said it before and I'll say it again ... you are a HOOT girl!
