Writers Workshop


I'm trying out a new MeMe today from MaMa Kats Losing It, If you have not checked her out before...TRUST ME when I tell you that this girl is F-U-N-N-N-N-Y!!! 

There are a couple of topics that she selects and then you go to town selecting one of the topics and writing about it. So, here are THE PROMPTS: 

1.) If I sent you four hundred dollars today what is ONE thing you would spend it on and why. ps I want my change.

2.) What are your kids talking about?

3.) Tell us about a local news story that's all the buzz right now in your neck of the woods.

4.) Share some blogging advice.

5.) Tell us about that time at the playground when that thing happened.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
I am taking topic # 1 today!  This is the super fun one! 

So, if I was given $400 smackers from Mama Kat I would buy: 
THIS:

The Wacom Intuos Tablet!!!
<span class=
This bad boy rings in @ $349 (which means Mama Kat gets $51 smackers back...Your Welcome!) and it is a MANDATORY tool if you are using photo shop to edit pictures....it is a wrist saver...big time... ;)

Now...perhaps I should post my mailing address so that I can get the check in the mail...right...the check IS in the mail right? 

A Huge thanks for letting me participate in this fun-ness!!!

Ooooo....I want that!!!!

Isn't Mama Kat a hoot?! I love playing along with her usually, just not feeling horribly inspired these days....

Carol said...

I've never seen or heard of that nifty little contraption. I might want one of those with my pretend $400, too. :-)

E @ Scottsville said...

Well, let's see! If I got $400? I'd send it directly to the kids' private school to get caught up on payments.

But God is blessing, and I'm being patient!

R and R Stacy said...

1. I love Mama Kat.
2. I wish I could do Writer's Workshop, but I can't afford to obsess over one more thing.
3. I don't have any idea what that gizmo gadget is, and I'm so glad! (Refer to #2.)
4. After seeing what a great job you do with your pics, I'm sure you could put one to awesome use.

That looks like such a cool little thing. I might have to start laying some hints on my hubby for a good b-day/Christmas present combined.

You are so smart and cool. I don't even know what that is : ). You also look SO adorable in your profile picture. -Like the cutest girl on the planet!
I thought it was only $100. I don't know what planet I live on. It is definitely NOT earth.

This is for you my friend :)

Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;

Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
