Say What Friday

Greetings all...

Happy Friday!

We've survived another week. Yay us!

Since Sunday is Mother's Day, I bring you a mother inspired quote.

"Silence is golden. Unless you have kids then silence is suspicious."

Write 100 words or create 2 icons/1 banner and you'll be reward with a drabble from a fandom of your choice or me adding a 100 words to a wip.

Happy creating.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there whether they have human children or furry ones.

What to listen to Wednesday

We listen to streaming internet radio at work, and we are ALWAYS changing stations. We used to have an alliterative plan to our listening, but lately we have gotten bored early in the day. Today we settled on Calypso.

So I thought, World Music Wednesday!

Now we can stick with the calypso, Bob Marly, Byron Lee, Harry Belafonte... Mambo #5, Tiney Winey, Jump the Wine... All da people, All around me, Feelin Hot Hot Hot!

What do you listen to when you're feeling you need some worldly inspiration?
