Who let the blonde out?

Laura: So what do you think about that lunch over Thanksgiving?

Lisa: Why don't we try to schedule it for Friday?

Laura: Which day is Thanksgiving this year? Isn't it Friday?

Lisa: Um...no. Thanksgiving is Thursday. It's always on Thursday.

Laura: Really?

Lisa: Yeah. Did you seriously not know that?

Laura: That's just not the kind of stuff I know.

This is almost as good as that time when Laura named one of our characters Gregory Hines. I love it when she lets the blonde out.

LOL! That's great! We all have blond moments every now and then. :)

Shannon Messenger said...

Heh! As a fellow blond--with MANY blond moments--I loved this. For example, I don't even know if it's spelled "blonde" or "blond." That's just not the sort of thing I know. :)

Katie said...

Oh how adorable!!!! I giggled at the Gregory Hines. That one never gets old.

Loretta Nyhan said...

I'm still laughing about Gregory Hines...

A. Grey said...

Oh wow, that's sweet on a whole new level above sugar! Gregory Hines, the immortal Gregory Hines... I might be the only girl my age who knows who he is, but I shall carry the torch boldly!

As for the Thanksgiving thing, I asked that last year... It doesn't help that I work with horses, and the entire world can go on vacation but horses still need to be fed and be looked after...

Mad snaps to ya'll :)

Kristen Torres-Toro said...

Haha! That's awesome! I'm not even going to talk about the tattoo I designed once. Let's just say that I'm glad I figured out the double meaning I never saw coming before I got it!

Tabitha Bird said...

LOL!

At least she did not ask if 'buffalo wings' really came from buffalos.

(spicy chicken wings if you haven't heard of buffalo wings) :))

Erica said...

That's funny! Yep, had those moments. Happens at least once a day :)

Shelli said...

LOL you guys are a hoot

Mariah Irvin said...

I only remember Thanksgiving is on Thursday because Black Friday comes the day after.

I think my blonde is showing.

Karen said...

Oh, I don't think you're ever going to match the Gregory Hines incident. :)

Sarah said...

LOL!

In Laura's defense, it's not like they label the days like they do for Easter. You know, Good Friday, Something (Somber?) Saturday, and Easter Sunday/Monday.

I think if they called it Thanksgiving Thursday, it would really help.

Jemi Fraser said...

Love it! I have those days and those moments too :)

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Ha! The kind of stuff I don't know astounds me every day.

Lisa and Laura said...

Thank you Mariah. The Black Friday thing really helps--I guess I never put those two together. But hey, you learn something new everyday, right? Right?

I do, unfortunately, have many, many blonde moments. Damn highlights.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Laura, I can totally sympathize.

During college I worked as a waitress (like just about every woman on the planet) and an older gentleman told me a blonde joke - I DIDN'T GET IT!

I'm still recovering from the embarrassment of that moment! :)

Abby Annis said...

That's awesome! Thanks for the laugh! :)

Mariah Irvin said...

I'm glad my knowledge of shopping has proven it's worth.

Joanna said...

*snicker* Gregory Hines!

I've always wanted to snicker via internet...

Rain Maiden said...

Thats too funny. I wish I had a blonde sister.

Bethany Wiggins said...

I am glad I'm not the only one with blonde moments! In fact I am such an airhead sometimes, people are taken aback when I tell them I write books. My excuse? My head is always in the clouds (if by clouds you mean engrossed in my latest WIP).

Hardygirl said...

I agree with Laura--who can be burdened with knowing such details. That is why we all have calendars and mothers.

Carolyn V. said...

Hee hee hee, I loved it! It's okay Lisa, for the last two years my mom has celebrated my birthday on the wrong date. ;p

Suzette Saxton said...

Laughing still! At least only one of you is blonde... my writer sister and I are both blondies. Here is a conversation we had today:

Her: What's the name of that one blogger? You know, the one who lives in Ohio?

Me: I don't know...

Her: She's the one who had that internet stalker.

Me: Oh! You mean Sammie? I didn't know she lived in Ohio.

Her: But you're the one who told me she lives there.

Me: Oh yeah! I guess forgot.

Well, um, guess what. I just checked. Sammie lives in Rhode Island.

Le sigh. I suppose one of us should become a brunette!

Lunar Amyscope said...

LOL my husband asked us which day Thanksgiving was 'this year' and we all just stared at him and laughed a little...

You guys are funny :)

Gail said...

ok, I admit I snickered over this. But really, we all know that brunettes and redheads have their moments too!!!

Icy Roses said...

Ha, that's okay.

Asians never have blonde moments.

...just kidding. :-)

Melissa said...

My husband and I had this same conversation the other night, although *I* was the one having a blond moment. And I'm not even a blond!

Gregory Hines. Hee hee!

Christina Lee said...

LOL!!! Oh I've got lots of blond stored up in me too!!

Kim said...

LMAO! I love it! Too funny!!!

Oh, and I caught my first 2 episodes of Glee yesterday. I'm hooked!

Kristin said...

Awesome!!!

jessjordan said...

Ooooh, let the blonde out more often! (Laura, if it makes you feel any better, I had no idea Thanksgiving was always a Thursday until a couple of years back. So yeah. Even the brunettes let the blonde out on occasion.)

Kimberly Derting said...

You should definitely make this a regular feature! Hilarious!!! (from one blonde to another...)
