Outline of my thoughts

I. I would be on Survivor.
a. Obviously I would have to be in much better shape to even make a go for myself, but I would do it if that were the case and my kids were older. What's 40 days?
b. It should be noted that the primary reason for being in shape would be the multiple appearances on national tv in unflattering conditions and little clothing. Performance is secondary.

II. "There is not another man on this planet who knows how to maim and hurt somebody with a ladder more than me."
a. My favorite quote I have heard in a long time.
b. The answer to the question, "What is a 'ladder match'?"
c. A wrestling event on USA.

III. Some favorite words that have been recently emailed to me via
a. slugabed \SLUHG-uh-bed\, noun:
One who stays in bed until a late hour; a sluggard.
b. circumlocution \sir-kuhm-loh-KYOO-shuhn\, noun:
The use of many words to express an idea that might be expressed by few
c. tintinnabulation \tin-tih-nab-yuh-LAY-shuhn\, noun:
A tinkling sound, as of a bell or bells.
d. spoony \SPOO-nee\, adjective:
1. Foolish; silly; excessively sentimental.
2. Foolishly or sentimentally in love.
e. sesquipedalian \ses-kwuh-puh-DAYL-yuhn\, adjective:
1. Given to or characterized by the use of long words.
2. Long and ponderous; having many syllables.
3. A long word.
f. tatterdemalion \tat-uhr-dih-MAYL-yuhn; -MAY-lee-uhn\, noun:
1. A person dressed in tattered or ragged clothing; a ragamuffin.
2. Tattered; ragged.

IV. Books Waiting for me
a. On the side of my bed
1. The Known World
2. Empress Orchid
b. On hold at the library
1. The Monster of Florence
2. The Host
3. The Secret History

V. Nearly any ice cream is improved with crumbled pretzels in it
a. Based on a Ben & Jerry's flavor, Chubby Hubby.
b. best results are achieved with non-fruit flavors, in my experience.

I.b. Obviously.

II. Yikes.

III. I love circumlocution (especially when I am speaking French) and tintinnabulation. Also tatterdemalion.

IV. I've read two out of your list. I anxiously await your reviews.

V. Why didn't you tell me this sooner? Brilliant, and I can't wait to try it. Obviously not with fruity flavors.

I. Count me out, no matter what shape I'm in.

II. Ditto Michelle.

III. I thought Grandma was the only person who ever used or had heard of the word "slugabed."

IV. Embarrassed to admit that I am using what little reading time I have to finish the Twilight series.

V. Brilliant, indeed!
