Reasons to make the O_o Face

There are times when you read, see or hear something that just makes you  :o. This is the thread to share them on!

The other day I don't know where I stumbled on a thread discussing the Nancy Drew novels. I remembered how much I loved them and I did a little research...which led me to the original publishers, who also published the Hardy Boys and the Bobbsey Twins. All written by a cadre of ghost writers under cover names. Then I found a link to an audio book of one of the Bobbsey Twins stories, which I loved when I was a kid. I listened to it for old times' sake. The  :o happened when the author described little Flossie-aged-four's collection of dolls, among which was a black Sambo doll given to her by the family's "coloured cook Dinah, and her husband the stableman, Sam." Who had "excellent rooms above the stables." They had given her this black worsted ragdoll (named Jujube) which she kept with her other dolls..."but apart, at the other end of the shelf, and with a nice  piece of white pasteboard in between--because, well, he wasn't really family."

:o  :o
The story goes on to state that Flossie had thought about giving Jujube away but didn't want to hurt Dinah's feelings; "and after all, as Mamma said, there weren't any doll hospitals for black orphan dolls."

No wonder the Bobbsey Twins books went out of fashion. Nancy Drew is still available today...but then there was nothing like that in them.

So, VWers, what made you :o    today?

Bought a jar of Peter Pan peanut butter because Spanish made pb is either waaay too sweet or has no sugar in it at all!
Then I happened to read the label, as you do.  ::)
2 Tablespoons of chunky peanut butter = 200 calories
:o  :o  :o
Granted I bought it for a special treat, but  :o

Oh my gosh! I just came in here to post that I thought the thread title was "Reasons to make the O face".

I mean, I can pretty much only think of one good reason for that... and it should probably be posted in Do Not Disturb :D

The guy this morning who passed us on the right in an intersection..against the light...to make an illegal left turn into oncoming traffic...into an underground parking lot!  :o  The moped heads of the 90's are now the drivers of the millenium who still drive a car like it's a moped....glad I don't drive, I think.

A live moth flew out of the brand-new coffeemaker I found at my FIL's.  Granted, he bought it 2 years ago, but it was wrapped in shrink wrap, in it's styrofoam cocoon, inside the box, which was also shrink-wrapped.  And the moth flew out of the water reservoir.    :o

:-[ I also screamed like a little girl when it flew out... :-[

i would have screamed too.. haha. something about fluttering bugs is unsettling. as long as they don't move around in side my house, i'm ok.

We pay crazy amounts of money to have a meal plan, I swipe my card and go in and get the tiny bit of nasty crap that they offer me and usually don't eat more than a few bites. Then, I can make myself a cup of coffee and walk out with it but I can't grab a piece of fruit and walk out with it. That's stealing to them.

Back when I had a meal plan, I used to wear a big jacket and stuff fruit and zip-lock bags of salad bar vegs in my pockets and sleeves. :)

I hide it in my purse. I'm planning on investing in a larger purse or bringing my backpack and shove a bunch in. It's kind of hard though because you have to do it while they're not looking and they're everywhere. The only fruit they have anyway are bananas, apples and oranges and not the good kind. I'm thinking of buying a box of fruit from somewhere to be delivered here, I'm just not sure how to get it up to my room, lol.
