Fun Monday #37: Meet Cute (edited)

The people have spoken and I must bend to their will!

So after a tough fight, which was neck-and-neck for more than 24 hours before option 2 broke away from the pack this afternoon, here is your Fun Monday assignment this week:

Describe your meeting with your spouse/significant other. I especially want to hear "meet cute" stories. And it doesn't have to be your actual current sig/other. Perhaps the "meet cute" story is a former boy/girlfriend... or even a best friend. Illustrate with photos, of course.

So get out there and dazzle us with your stories on Monday, October 15. The list of the participants so far is below. If you want to participate and are not on the list, leave a comment or email me directly.

It's not too late to join in the fun. Just let me know. (And if you are a first-timer, and I didn't designate you as such, let me know that too!)

(And -- obviously I'm addicted to parentheses -- I did take down the vote post. Otherwise it would bury my very funny Potty Talk post! Heh.) (*edited to add: kaytabug saved me and I have now put my original post back. Thanks, k!)

(AND ... because I obviously can't shut up ... can anyone who uses Blogger tell me now to change the dates on these damned things? In trying to keep THIS post at the top, I tried to trick it by making fake entries so I could just "edit" the fake ones into real ones.... and then, um, that made all my entries dated Saturday, Oct. 6. HELP!) (*edited to add: ok, that's fixed. Now, can anyone tell me how to do the strike-through? I'll figure out this blogging thing yet!) Yay. I know EVERYTHING now!

ANYWAY, back to the point: I have had a great time hosting so far. If you would like to take over the duties for next week, please email me at jsongbird4(at)aol(dot)com. *Edited to add: Still looking for a host for next week. Come on, guys. Don't make me have to stop this car! We have a volunteer! YAY!

Robin said...

Hey Janet,

I'm I'm curious what the votes were about (gonna try to find that :) ).

Nora Bee said...

Hi! I think I can do this one. (First timer). Eeek! Except I don't know what "meet cute" exactly means, so I'll just sort of pretend I do.

Jenni said...

Count me in for Fun Monday, but it may be Tuesday before I get the post up. I keep getting dirty looks from people for spending 20 minutes at a time on the computer in the hotel business center and Danny has been using his laptop nonstop. Maybe I can use the laptop during the drive home on Monday and post it as soon as I get home.

kitten said...

Add Kitten to your list,please.

Hootin'Anni said...

The list of participants just keeps growing and growing doesn't it? Being hostess is most likely a fun thing, but lots o' work too!!

Happy Sunday.
Thanks for the visit.
[I have my Fun Monday all ready and drafted for later this evening to publish]

Have a great day.

Hootin'Anni said...

I'm the plague!! I know I know---you are trying desperately to hide from me.

But, I was wondering if anyone has stood up for hosting the NEXT Fun Monday. ---a show of parentheses here--> (That would be October 22nd? Right?) If not, I will!!! Let me know, either way, in my blog comment section, okay?

Tiggerlane said...

Count me in!

Robin said...

I was SO STINKIN' LATE LAST WEEK, mine's already done for tomorrow...except now I gotta go find pictures to scan for it.

Thanks for hosting--looks like a lot of peeps came up with an idea for this :).

Lil Mouse (Jill) said...

Sirdar said...

Deborah said...

I've only participated once before, but would love to join in if that's ok! I'm going to post right now!

Deborah said...

I suppose I should specify which blog if you're clicking through my profile! ;-) The Humble Housewife one! Thanks!

Robin said...

I FINALLY found that STUPID picture! You should see my house,'s upside down. Thanks for this fun stroll down memory lane, though.

I'll be Fun Mondaying all week to pay for the time it took me to find my pic, lol. Hmmm, maybe I should organize my pictures....!

B said...

Robin in CA said...

Can we add one more. My parents 54th anniversary was the 15th and they were willing to share their meet cute.
