Lately Found and a Roundup…


So, I’m wrestling with a post that might become 4 posts. Or get condensed down to 2 posts. Jury is still out for at least another day on that.




I still wish I was Charlie Harper from Two and a Half Men. Not Charlie Sheen, he’s a mess, Charlie Harper…What?!!




I’ve been tab hording again. That happens when the availability of information on the internet turns my brain into a jittery chipmunk with an espresso IV and a crack pipe. Eventually this behavior causes Firefox to implode and collapse in on itself, as you can see here…

Tab Hoarding - Ahhhhhhhhh!




I’d like a show of hands from all you who think “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head” is an abysmal piece of lyrical crap, but you still can’t stop singing it when you hear it long enough. It’s missed it’s true calling as a means to wring confessions out of prisoners at Gitmo.




I totally wish I had more time to spend on the Food52 website. The more websites I search out the more I wish my skills were more than they are, but the future is open I suppose…




I have been reading Stephen King’s book “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft” which has been really fabulous, considering that I’m not a reader of any of his books, but I can say that nowhere is his skill as a writer more evident than at the ending chapters when he writes about the accident when he was seriously injured by a reckless driver.




I’ve been losing sleep late at night to this…

Addiction




My Niece has changed her mind and had decided to contest the adoption of the two youngest children that we share (now you know about the posts I’ve been wrestling with), so this will only be decided with the greatest pain possible.




I still haven’t figured out how to fill the $2500 hole that opened up in my monthly income 4 months ago. But I will. Somehow. In the meantime, Reasons For Living #’s 1 through 6 are all oblivious, doing well and looking forward to their long weekend.




And lastly in the weekly round up, I am totally enjoying this site called Post Secret, which describes itself as “an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.”  It’s pretty cool. Click on these for a taste…

(This one about saving the voice mails of the people you love…I have voice messages from my children on my phone from 4 years ago)

Cheers All…

Happy Long Weekend

  1. I’m sorry your adoption process will be so awful :-( I hope it is resolved soon and in the very best way for all concerned.

    I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who does the answering machine thing!

    I love the thought of the day in your sidebar. So true.

    You need a hobby. What about stamp collecting? No wait, they don’t have stamps on emails, do they?
    If it weren’t for Christmas, the Post Office could probably close up and no-one would ever notice.
    Do you have time to try lavender-pressing? What about horse-shoe welding?
    Am I on your voicemail? If I am, then it’s OK; I can die in (hand)piece.
    It’s a nice, quiet Sunday morning, and I’ve spent some of it with people who mean the world to me. Why I’m writing this is to keep in touch with another of same, but how do I know where to find you? Your spoor is extremely engaging, but difficult to track. I fear I am not well enough equipped to follow you through this scrubby gully.
    Trust yourself, but be gentle on yourself as well.
