Don't you sometimes wish you could do blog accents? Like French or British or Italian?? I'd be all over that right now.
So...we do have a winner. And shame, shame on me...it came in very early yesterday, but I was having so much fun reading your guesses that I'm just now calling Uncle.
And the winner is....Salt from Salt Says! What alarms me is that I'm pretty sure she was not born anywhere close to the 1960's. In fact, I'm almost positive I've got at least 5 years on her...and yet...she totally got it. So, how she remembers this and I don't is puzzling. I blame marijuana. Or maybe that one time Taco Bell tried to kill me via a chalupa. At any rate, congratulations, Salt...it was the Nik-L-Nips...which sounds so much like nipple lips to me that I'm surprised it ever made it past the test marketing. Maybe Mama Virgo, AKA Mama Psychologist, was trying to protect me from years of Mommy Issues...issues that my husband may or may not possess.
More of a visual person? Here ya go:
where's purple? You're going to tell me that blue became a flavor before purple (which can legitimately be classified as grape)? Hmm..I'll take Flav R Ice (which is apparently the same as Otter Pops on the west coast...thank you, Surferwife) over this concoction anytime.
swear they're called Flav R Ice in the south....
So, honorable mentions go to DG @ Diary of a Mad Bathroom, Queenie Jeannie @ Jeannie's Happy World, and Debbie @ Suburb Sanity, who agreed with Salt. I'm sure if you're super-nice and tell her how pretty her wedding hair is, she'll share the accolades (which basically come in the form of Atta Girl...You so smart. Which is decidedly better than You're so pretty...).
Next item on the agenda: Thursday and Friday.
Tomorrow's Magnolias and Mimosas post will be brought to you by Kiera @ Imperfect Daisies. We call this a blog swap...sort of like a wife swap but without all of the cursing and poopy diapers. She will post to my blog and I will post to her's. It's a guaranteed good time because nothing is more fun than crashing someone else's house and drinking all their beer. Plus, Kiera makes me giggle.
On Friday, we will have a black-out on Magnolias and Mimosas to urge all readers to join us on Kallay's blog, Kallaydoscope...where Salt and I are crashing while Kallay is fighting off the hippies and the fir trees in Oregon. I'll put up a reminder on Friday morning, but that's all. Because seriously, you will have to check it out. Kallay granted me access to her Facebook page before she left. She probably should not have done that. Just sayin'....
And next week, I will have to post something about how my mom keeps offering up blog topics. Does it really suck so bad around here that I need suggestions on what to write about? And she wants me to know that it's not for all intensive purposes, it's for all intents and purposes. I don't actually think I was born with a Type A personality, I think it was groomed in me. While I'm at it, perhaps I should mention that I lay on the bed while drinking they're beer and could care less. How's THAT for abuse of the English language? Thanks, Mama Virgo.
Back to our regularly scheduled program on Monday. Until then, enjoy the swinging!
