It’s Tuesday. The weather is cold and rainy. Inside, though warmer, emotions are taut and worn. I have another book hangover from finishing another series. To help myself recover, I’m playing a book game with you all, called “Teaser Tuesday”.

Consider this post your Ambien of the day, for I’m thinking it may be good for putting people to sleep. Warning: may cause nightmares or weird dreams. This blogger is not responsible for that, though, and you reading this notice forms a binding agreement that you won’t backlash me with anything more than a wet noodle without sauce. ;D
As of this moment, I’m kind of in hibernate mode, and my imagination is in hyper-drive. The weather is sort of “drizzable”. At least that’s the word one of the local forecasters says (he made it up one day, and it stuck. LOL) It’s hard to be motivated, much less to motivate anyone else, on these sort of days. I managed to blog for another site (much to the delight of the owner — the blogging, not sure she liked the post — hah), and almost finish my latest read. I’ll finish that book tonight, and it will probably give me some interesting dreams. Isn’t it something how some books can key into the imagination so well to do such? This could also be a contributing factor to why my imagination is so active at the moment. **light bulb moment**
Anyway, back to napping…to aid the cause, sharing my napper, whom seems to be way ahead of me.
(recently found out my little one seems to the subject of happy memories, at least for eighties’ kids)
Good day/night, y’all. And, make sure wear your protection, in case of leakage. ;D
It’s Friday night, and what am I thinking of at the moment? Reading…and another game/challenge. Okay, enough laughing at my social life already. Actually, I feel blessed to have a moment to read, especially lately. ;P Anyway, I noticed the Reading Bingo game challenge a couple weeks ago and thought “that’s neat, but I don’t think I have the time to keep up with it.”
In case you’re wondering what the heck? Here’s one of the bingo boards:
Well, I looked at this again at it today and discovered something: one month into the new year and I have 1 square from Bingo on several columns! And, that’s without even paying attention. So, I’ve added yet another challenge to my reading list. (you can see my progress via my Read in 2014 page)
Hip hip, hooray…calloo, callay, another challenge is underway!
Want to join me? Link is on the above graphic (direct link on my 2014 page). Can you beat me to bingo? C’mon…drink the Kool-aid…it’s sweet and has no calories, so you can have it all day long. ;D Do leave a comment if/when you try the bingo…or why you don’t like Kool-aid.
Awaits for you to feed my curiosity. In the meantime, there’s a book calling my name again.
I play a quaint little game with my friends. Maybe you’ve heard of it…Words with Friends. Yeah, I know…kind of a silly version of Scrabble, but it’s a good way for some of my friends and I to banter back and forth (and sometimes beat the pants off the other *wicked grin*). Anyway, for me, it turns into story time on the board. Perhaps, it’s the reader within me, but I make a game within a game playing off of my friends’ words with complementary ones.
One friend of mine played “tinter”, I countered with “shady”. (Methinks there’s something sneaky happening in this game. *shifts eyes back and forth*)
Another friend and I had “spado” “pie”. (I don’t know what that is, but it sounds mighty interesting, though perhaps a little Craig Ferguson type of creepy.)
On another game, I put “shawls” in my friend’s “folder”. (Well, at least he’ll be warm during this Winter.)
Some of the weirdest, funniest stories come from one particular friend of mine. So, just had to share one of our recent “stories”:
“The toast harped dad['s] fez [and] learns unto [the] lamb. [and the toad is waiting to play]“
No, we weren’t drinking…at least I wasn’t at the time, I can’t vouch for him, as he’s hours away in the boonies.
I realize that this game within a game is the result of my funkedelic imagination (and that’s without drugs), but it can make things quite interesting is my point.
What have you ever seen in a game? Ever think it would make a good book? Or maybe a coffee table book for stoners? Hmm…filing that under possible money ideas, when I get the money to go to Washington or Colorado one day. ;D
Holy flip…did you know?
It’s National Reading Day! Hip, hip, hooray. Well, for me, that’s about every day if I can, and I consider myself very fortunate to have that privilege.
Anyway, the national reading day site is dedicated to getting kids into reading. I’ve personally recommended wegivebooks.org for this task. It has books for various ages, and all one needs is an internet connection. And, for every book you read, the site GIVES free books (real books) to kids in need.
So, why are we just sitting around here? It’s story time!
Here’s a story about a man and a dream (whom we just celebrated on a holiday this month):
And, here’s a classic tale that many people can relate to these days, thanks to a certain “Polar Vortex”:
Yeah, I know…as good a book as that is, I’m adding one more, something I found one day and turned out to be a really cute read…
(note: this last one’s available through Amazon.com; no get/give points, but if you click, you do support my reading fund *please, please, puppy-dog eyes*)
Oh, and in case you didn’t click on the wegivebooks link yet, go explore it more sometime (after reading my site, of course). They’re having a contest involving reading and Wrestlemania at the moment, encouraging kids to read all they can.
Happy reading, y’all!
