On your marks, get set, shop!!!! Wait a minute. Why are you still here? It’s Black Friday – you’re supposed to be out scratching, biting, and kicking to get all the amazing deals. I was going to stay up until midnight last night to see if the iPad Air I want for Christmas was on sale on the Apple website, but when I checked yesterday and saw the earliest shipping date was December 20th, that was just a little too close for comfort for me, especially since I have already sold my old iPad. Staples provided a much more logical, although probably a little more expensive, choice with next day delivery, so I am picking it up today! Don’t worry though – it will be staying in the box until Christmas (maybe). Aren’t I a great wife doing my hubby’s Christmas shopping for him?? LOL!! Now, if only he would give me some ideas for himself, I could start to breathe easier. He’s impossible to buy for :).
I hope all of my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, and just make sure if you do hit the stores today that you wear your protective gear. Now, on to the mystery photo. Clear your mind of all the Black Friday advertisements that have been bombarding us this week, and give me your best guess. Ok, ready, set, go….
That one is easy so I will not spoil anyone’s fun…lets just say it begins with a ..no I am not going to say!
Oooh, what control you have :). It’s killing you isn’t it? LOL
Easy…..it’s pineapple skin.
(are there any other plants or fruits with the same textured skin?).
they look like some kind of fruit, I’m not sure my African roots understand but hey I’ve lived in the frozen north for a good few years now so I’m going to say they’re chestnuts. Mrs BC is away for a long weekend in Iceland and as of yet I haven’t managed to burn the house down or kill my kids which I think is pretty impressive. They’ve even had hot meals that I didn’t order. OK so some tidying up is probably necessary and the dishwasher could use re-stacking but hey I’m impressed with me. Have a fantabulous weekend.
I am so proud of you!! You have done a fabulous job :). What a wonderful father!
got to love them, they’ve been so well behaved, it helps that there is now a reliableish internet connection in Zimbabwe so they have been able to skype with video with their Granny for the first time without it dropping every few seconds.
of course I may have been blinded by my lack of time in the tropics recently and forgotten than pineapples aren’t always a perfect yellow 😉
aah how nice. Little baby Martians.
May not be around much today. There is a problem with the internet blocking some WP UK accounts. Not the first time. Hey Ho 🙂
Have a good time 🙂
Baby martians!! I love that answer :).
An exotic bug’s shell (resembles a tortoise shell) and are known to be popular pets with aliens.
Alien pets?!?! Well, why not? Even aliens should be able to have the companionship of a pet right?
Come now, where’s your creativity!
the skin on my arms
I think you need some better cream :).
the back of the head of your alien best friend forever
Wow, I think she’d better buy a hat!!!
a device used to torture bananas
Now you’re getting the hang of it.
Awww, poor little bananas 😦
The bottom of Mike’s feet.
I like this one!
Hopefully Mike doesn’t read it.
Hahahahahahaha!!!! Nah, the bottom of Mike’s feet are uglier than this and not near as colourful :).
do you make him wear socks to bed? I would.
I’m so excited I know it today it’s a pineapple. Funny you should say that about the iPad I was on the Apple site this morning looking to see if the iPad mini was on sale but it wasn’t unfortunately. I really need to upgrade my iPad because it’s the first generation and I’ve been debating between the iPad air and the new iPad Mini with retina display and I think I’m going to go with the mini.
I love iPads!!!!!!!!! I just had to get that out LOL :). This will be my third one I think, and I would never choose another type of tablet. I have absolutely zero complaints about my iPad or my iPhone. The only thing that would make them better is if they had memory card slots. They may be a little more money than some tablets, but they are so worth it! I think the mini is great – you should go for it. I have a Nook HD that I use as an ereader, so that’s why I get the iPad and not the mini. If you buy the mini from Apple today you will get a $50 Apple Store gift card :).
what about a pineAPPLE card?
Tee hee hee 🙂
Coming in to land on Twlkkzx, that new planet at the outer regions of the galaxy.
Wait a minute!! How did you find out about my friend’s secret planet?? 🙂
Too easy Pineapple skin…
I thought it was gooseberries, but it would seem I am in the minority since everyone else thinks it’s pineapple
Quick get Siguerney Weaver before one of them bursts open and clamps itself to your space helmet. I hate to repeat myself but aaaaargh.
Having a nice day hear in the sanitarium, wish you were here.
It’s becoming really difficult to fool you guys :). Pretty much every one of you knew it was a pineapple, so give yourselves a well deserved pat on the back. I must also make special mention of LouAnn who was very clever with her answer of pineAPPLE as I was talking about the iPad I am getting for Christmas. Very clever LouAnn :). Have a great weekend everyone!!
thank you for that pat on the back–I needed that!
You’re welcome 🙂
