Ode to White Chris

Apparently Chris Deppa (aka White Chris) has voiced a complaint that he has not been featured on the blog and is not mentioned on the countdown. We truly apologize for this oversight and offer the following.....

We thought we'd write a poem like this
to say how we admire Chris

Maya says his name is "white"
And Saundra thinks that he's just right.

So we blogged this sappy ode
To welcome him to our abode


And that round goes to Jackie! Looks like she is giving Lezlie a run for her money! Oh, I love a good competition.

Sorry Nikki, I forgot to mention that the winning answer to #12 was Starbucks. I realize that some of you may not have been there but the clue was bean there! HeHeHe

And on to good ole #13....

And once again, Lezlie pulls the correct answer out of her.... You guys need to stop her! Ü It was Thrifty car rental.

Lezlie has had a rough day so this one is for her! Good luck.


I'm going to give that last one to Lezlie even though she was a little bit cocky. It is Pringles but it is French Cheese not Cheddar as previously guessed! Sorry Lezlie, nothing here is Cheddar! (unfortunately!)

Don't give up everyone else, I'll find a way to block Lezlie from leaving comments then you will all have a chance! Ü

Ok get ready, this is a hard one.....

Sorry Lezlie but I have to post them at different times to be fair. Perhaps you should check your computer every hour on the hour just to make sure you don't miss one! Ü

Monica got that last one with Subway and Baskin Robbins. Go Muggy! I should post the stats but I really don't remember! Maybe I'll put a running total on the blog!

How about this one?

I told Brian Lezlie would get it in a heartbeat! I wasn't at all surprised to see her answer before I even shut off my computer to go to bed. I hadn't thought about the teenage factor over at the Oswald household so I guess Lezlie is lucky she carries her computer strapped to her body. Has anyone else noticed that she is so addicted to my blog that she is neglecting her own? Some pictures of those cuties please!!!

Are you ready for a 2fer? Here it is, you have to get both correct. Don't worry they are very easy. Good Luck!

Christmas in Doha

When we came to Doha I told Brian that I was bringing all of our Christmas decorations because I knew I wouldn't be able to get anything like that here. So I sent everything. The fake tree, the ornaments, I even sent the tree lights that we can't plug in here!

So Imagine my surprise the last few days as I've been shopping at seeing all of the fake trees, decorations, electronic movable santas etc. Did I mention that an 8 foot tree is about $43.69?

All of you that know me, know I rarely say no to my kids (in terms of shopping that is!) so here they are in today's $1.92 find. Have you seen anything cuter? Please note the matching high heel princess shoes. They are such girls. I reminded Brian that one of Maya's first words was Credit Card and Gemmas was Makeup! What on earth would I have done with a boy?


Congratulations to Tyson. It is Macaroni Grill. Thought that one would be easier for you.

Well I've got lots of plans tomorrow (one includes picking up our housemaid/nanny/kim's freedom at the airport! yippee!) so I thought I'd post this one before I go to bed. I really think that you will either know this right away or not at all. Hope that makes sense. So this could be interesting. Looking forward to your answers!


Sorry Lezlie, I have to give it to Monica. It is Mazola corn oil. By the way, where is everyone? Have people stopped playing or are you just not leaving comments? Humph!

Lets see how you do with this....

Posting early for Monica. Must be fair. OK Muggy, here is your chance, step up and stop whining.

Lezlie is the winner for her selection of Krispy Kreme. Not to worry Talya, I'll take you there as much as you want when you get here!

On to today's selection
