It's Alive!

I should have said in my previous post, that I would return late next week (this week). I didn't, because I thought I would get back to blogging sooner than this, but better late than never. As it is, I will still be distracted by a work project for a few more weeks, but hopefully the time consuming part is behind me.

Housekeeping duties await me here. I still have the "What If" post to thrill you with. Maybe not exactly thrilling, or even humorous, but I need to get it done so Walker will know that I fulfilled my mission......sorta. Here 'tis:

If I could be a doctor - I would be a gynecologist, the reason should be as plain as the _______ on your _______(fill in the blanks.)

If I could be a taxi driver - I would quietly observe all of my fares, and then, like so many other cabbies before me, would write a bestseller, which later would be be adapted to a broadway play. If that doesn't work for me, then I will have a hot expose to sell, based on the actions of my many famous & infamous fares. I guess blackmail might be a bigger payday than selling to the tabloids. Let's all hope I sell my novel, and keep my integrity intact.

If I could be an architect - I would design low impact buildings on caribbean islands, which would blend harmoniously with the surrounding environment. I would become so successful, so renowned, and so filthy rich, that I would buy my own island, and spend my free time beachcombing in the nude.

If I could be an innkeeper - I would run an intimate, seaside establishment, small, but a quality place, big on privacy. There would be mandatory 10 PM skinny dipping every night.

If I could be a lawyer - I would do everybody a favor and retire, the world has way too many attorneys.

I have chosen the following victims to prepare a list of their own, sorry my friends, but I picked you because I know you could have fun with it, and you won't let me down, right? No groans allowed, I bitched enough for all of us, lol.


The general rules are as follows: from the list of occupations below, select five (5), and write a post on your blog, on how you would perform each, if they were your job. Maybe add a little more to it than I have here. When you are done, add a couple of occupations to the bottom, and ambush five other fellow bloggers to prepare a list. I am so late getting to this, I doubt there is anyone left who hasn't done it. I think I will add a new rule, that if you have already participated, and want out of doing it again, it is up to you find somebody to pass it off to, and it CANNOT be me, not ever again! Sounds fair, no? I don't ever want to get one of these damn lists again, of any kind.

If I could be a musician...

The first thing I did this morning was to go out to look for deer prints in the garden. None, whew! I gota put up a cheap fence or it's all a waste of time. It lookss like it's gona be a beautifull day. Enjoy , enjoy. Bye for now, Danny.

morning to you, Danny. I think we will be blessed with sunshine most of the weekend. I always mean to plant some tomatoes, but put it off every year. Maybe that's a good thing, they would get ignored and die a withering death, lol

Blogger blue2go said...

Good to have you back again! We were wondering what happened to you. It's trying to be sunny here and I may mow the lawn after the dew dries off of it. Pretty wet out right now. Enjoy your Saturday and put some fun on your list!

9:57 AM  
Blogger dbdoberman said...

as for you two, I expect to see your assignment done within the next three days, is that clear? lolol

I wouldn't expect you to replace today's post, ya think I am that mean? Don't answer that.

I need to do some yardwork, and then off to enjoy a day of sunshine. The sky is an incredible blue today, and it would be a waste to not get out there and enjoy it.

You guys have a great day! :)

9:59 AM  
Blogger dbdoberman said...

b2g - I definitely have fun on my todo list today, but I have to get some work done first. I have been away, and working too much, everything has been ignored.
Enjoy your day!

10:01 AM  
Blogger Rhodent said...

SSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you are back! I will do the "What If" list and tag 5 others... It will be hard to find people who have not done this.... but I do find it amusing... will also keep your new rule!

Blogger Vickie said...

I missed you, dear one! Glad to see you back around.

Come see me at my new digs...

Blogger portuguesa nova said...

Okay. Guys always claim to want to be gynecologists...but...well...I think any woman's explanation to you of exactly why she might be at a gynecologist would turn you off to that real quick-like.

12:27 PM  
Blogger Ms. Vickie said...

A famous gynecologist with his face posted all over milk cartons is going to be major news. Sorry db, I was not able to stop the printing your picture will be out since you were MIA too long. I am sooooooooo glad you are back with us now. I was admitted to the hospital as I went thru major withdrawal from missing you and no one seemed to understand when I kept talking about someone called Welcome back sweet one.

1:12 PM  
Blogger Restless Angel said...

DB!! You're finally back!!

I guess that means I've gotta call off the search party......


3:25 PM  
Blogger Karen said...

You can have all the hugs you want! ;-)

Blogger MrGonSings said...

Happy to see blogging again, even if you tagged me for this list (grrrr)... well, actually, our lovely Peanut Queen already tagged me for this, but I just haven't had the time to come out with a long written post... I swear to both of you I'll get it done -though I might end up stretching the deadline "justabit"...
(I knew I should have written this list right away and that way I could have tagged you) ;)
Nice to have you back!

Shirazi completed his excellent list as well. I appreciate you two getting this done so quickly, not like a couple others who will remain nameless, lol

Blogger dbdoberman said...

Hey MrG! I really think you need to select 10 occupations now. 5 for Her Highness, and 5 for me!
Nice to be back and to hear from you.
