    1. Champagne
    2. Sauvignon Blanc
    3. Burgundy

    And clowns creep me right the hell out. I wouldn't be one. If I were with the circus I'd probably be the person to shovel up the elephant shit. It's better than shoveling bullshit…

    Cotton candy, root beer, and cotton candy. My clown name would be Blinky McSnorter.

  3. Jenn @ Juggling Life says:

    1. Avocado
    2. Basil
    3. Chocolate

    I love that your clown name is totally food-related. I'm drawing a total blank here. The whiteboard is too much pressure!

    1. Chocolate
    2. Chocolate
    3. Chocolate

    My clown name would be Chocolate Lips.

    Sensing a theme here?

    garlic, coffee, lemon.
    Your whiteboard is such an excellent thing. Your daughter charms me to no end.

  6. Christina says:

    1. Strawberry with chocolate
    2. Cherry with chocolate
    3. Raspberry with chocolate

    I couldn't copy Kmkat, that would be rude. Plus, I'm all about getting my 5 fruits and veggies in anyway that I can (This involves broccoli scented deoderant as well).

    My clown name would be Stinky McPeePants. This would be appropriate because the only way I would bow so low as to dress up like a creepy clown would be if my occasional glass of wine develops into an hourly issue. I would then be so loaded that taking a nap would become a higher priority than finding the nearest restroom.

    1. fresh strawberries
    2. cheese
    3. pie

    It's really hard to come up with anything that doesn't fall flat next to "Rotini Hotdogbuns."


    But I think I'd maybe go with Frank N. Beans. As a tribute to Junie B.

    I'm with Jass. I'd leave the top on Champagne though, and go for Sauvignon Blanc, Rum, and Liquer.The clown name? Phug…Phuggy, though with a clown you put "pants" on the end of everything I guess – so let's go for Phuggypants the Clown.Be careful with the lipgloss tamperings. Adam Ant started out that way and look where he is now!He didn't do himself any favours!(flavours?)

  9. ds says:

    Coffee with chocolate (or chocolate w/coffee; I'm not fussy!)

    Clown name? Bookfoot

    Yours are much better!

  10. flutter says:


    dark chocolate
    red wine

    and i would rather eat my own eye than think about being a clown, so I guess my name would be Existential

    What a wonderful game your daughter thought up. My favourite lip smacker flavour is your family. I would like to plant a big kiss on all your cheeks for being so adorable.

  12. secret agent woman says:

    Maybe you should send those flavor suggestions to the Lip Smacker company.

  13. geewits says:

    I'm not exactly sure what Lip Smackers are, but Lip Smacker seems like a good clown name. (Is it like flavored Chapstick?)

  14. christopher says:

    1. Coconut
    2. Blueberry
    3. Banana

    Ricky Ringdingaringo. Great exercise and now that the nice weather has arrived I can open our garage and search for our whiteboard…somewhere!

  15. Spider Girl says:

    Clowns scare me so I don't want to dwell on being one. 🙂

    However, just wanted to say that before last week I never even KNEW there was such a thing as a Playmobil sphinx and now I've PLAYED with one and here you've gone and mentioned them again. Synchronicity? I think SO!

  16. Deborah says:

    If possible, I would want one in Roquefort, but since I don't even know what lip smackers are…
    This dates me more than saying I could possibly be a grandmother at my age, and maybe I am already but they're in hiding.

    Clown name….Rufus Rofle

  17. MamaFox says:

    1. First sip of coffee
    2. Guacamole
    3. Extra burnt creme brulee

    Is this a prelude to your girls' blog? Or her talk show? Or, in the multimedia future, both. Thanks for the toy roadmap, the Fox follows…

  18. Deborah says:

    I'm sorry but I was so busy wracking my brains for a decent clown name (I left a desperate message on my daughter's Facebook wall hoping she could come up with a decent clown name – yeah, yeah I cheated and Rufus Rofle is hers) that I forgot to say that I love you too. Love this post. Love everything I've read of yours. I have to stop beating myself up that I can't be funny like you. Thank god there are people in the world like you.

    ok, before i answer i need to beg you to please collect a list of your favorite or even most recent questions of the day and send them to me so i can turn them into a meme. really, this is just ripe for the picking.

    and now the answers

    favorite three lipsmackers flavors:
    1. hugh jackman (in his hardworking drover who just poured a bucket of water over his fine torso, not so much in the wolverine phase because glossing ones lips with all that hair may be problematic)
    2. hot fudge sauce
    3.fudge covered hugh jackman

    clown name: ppfft. i'd be the ring master

    I tenderly tucked a tube of Wasabi Lip Gloss into my daughter's Christmas loot, and my son got onion ring breath mints. He was grossed out, which was most satisfying. I suggested that he drop the tin in the Salvation Army bucket outside the supermarket. Other daughter got a bar of cat food scented soap. I went for elegant this year.

    Agreed about the easel, by the way. It's a gift that grows with your child, especially if it's sturdy.
