SOC Sunday: Wouldn't It Be Awesome If...



Today's Stream of Consciousness (SOC) Sunday theme is, "Wouldn't it be awesome if..."

...we could get paid to clean the house, take naps and read our favorite books?

...especially to read our favorite books?

...True Blood season was longer than 12 weeks a year?

...my Jeopardy! audition was already over so I could go back to reading for fun instead of memorizing the U.S. presidents in order?

...the dishes would wash themselves and put themselves away?

...pizza made us lose weight?

...Batman was real?

...all of the boots I pinned on Pinterest would get in my closet?

...vacations were free? Notre Dame's football team was in Dublin yesterday (defeating Navy 50-10 in their season opener), and oh, how I wish I were there with them. Not because I love football so much (it's one of my least favorite sports, actually), but because I want to go to Dublin.

I am sooo for Batman being real and how cool about your Jeopardy gig. My neighbor was on there a few years ago. He didn't advance but had an awesome time. Good Luck.

Oh! I totally didn't think of Pinterest for this. But I SO should have. :) Love your list!

Very cool re: Jeopardy!! Good luck!

Thanks, both of you! I'm excited just to get to try out. This is my second time - I really hope I make it onto the show this time.

I hear you! I'd have made a lot of money today if that were true. :)

True Blood seriously needs to be on year round!!

Erin O'Riordan said...

Or at least six months out of the year! Three months on, nine months off is pretty ridiculous for a TV show as addictive as True Blood.

You have here some of my tippy top stuff...getting paid to clean the house, take naps and read our favorite books. And pizza to cure everything. And I want shoes and boots to appear in my closet because I'm a shoe whore. I love everything you said today because these are a few of my favorite things...I'm not singing but...

Erin O'Riordan said...

Thanks, Gina. I don't mind if you sing. I happen to like The Sound of Music.

Jeopardy!?! One of my favorite shows. Good luck with your audition and being able to get back to enjoyable reading.

I really liked your zero-calorie beer idea too, Jana. Thanks for stopping by!
