If I could clone myself…well, I’d be outta here!

The  prompt for blogging101 today asks what I would do if I could clone myself into several of Me, how would I assign responsibilities.   So this is my answer to that good question.   I am creating  five copies, or clones, of myself.  (I suppose it is too much to ask that one or more of the clones get a complete make-over…make-up and new wardrobe and … Continue reading If I could clone myself…well, I’d be outta here!

Quoting Lines from the Silver Screen–Will Smith

One of my favorite movie quotes is from INDEPENDENCE DAY, which has several comments worth quoting. In the scene when the heroes have just taken off to destroy the alien mother-ship, watching a super fast alien fighter plane doing impossible maneuvers, Will Smith says: “I have GOT to get me one of THESE!” Yeah, I know, this movie was the one that had the TV … Continue reading Quoting Lines from the Silver Screen–Will Smith

Kicking the Habit…take that Candy Crush!

THE ART OF ANNOYANCE… I am a compulsive obsessive creature that tip-taps tattoos with my fingernails on any surface.  I count the holes in my Crocs (there are 13,)   I like having ten of anything, be it beads, cookies, peas…and always try to sort anything that comes in multiple numbers into groups of five.   Actually groups of three and seven  are also satisfying, and nine…not so … Continue reading Kicking the Habit…take that Candy Crush!

All or Nothing… which is the quest?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “All or Nothing?.” This is an easy prompt for me.   I prefer to be wanting everything rather than nothing. Wanting everything is often meant critically…when I say I want to study everything, grouchy stern people say “that isn’t possible.  You can’t study everything.”  Well, that’s true of course, but I like to think of it as an … Continue reading All or Nothing… which is the quest?

Spinning Yarns, part 2–Me, Myself, and I

Speaking of writing in the first person, I have struggled with this for years. It is really annoying to have to re-write when composing an email to a friend. The I-did-this, and I-did that, gets old and needs to be repaired grammatically. However…that might get pretty boring and contrived. Sorry to be the grammar police, but that is my nature. It has always pained me … Continue reading Spinning Yarns, part 2–Me, Myself, and I

Spinning Yarns…wonderful double entrendre…

Ah ha! I just got it…”spinning yarns” has a double meaning: a literal definition in which a spinner spins yarns, on a spinning wheel, creating something substantial from something entirely different: producing a strong workable thread of wool or acrylic fibres. Actually something of a misnomer, as what the spinner actually spins are fibres, to produce yarn with which to make sweaters or blankets, etc. … Continue reading Spinning Yarns…wonderful double entrendre…

Why Auntie Buzz is the life of the party…

Gradmama2011 November 19, 2014 at 1:54 pm Eccentric people are my favorite kind. What is the opposite of eccentric? Plain, Conforming, Ordinary? I wonder who set up the rule book for behavior? Who decided how we all should act, and set the standards for our respective cultures? Picture a committee of faceless, uninteresting, boring people sitting around making up rules…all the same…not a healthy eccentric … Continue reading Why Auntie Buzz is the life of the party…
