Whoa 2014 you ho

Just a quick update…much like a prostitute charging by the hour (so I hear…though I can “play” one very well, I’m told — hehe).

It seems like I’m doing everything on the fly these days. The times I do have an idea, I’m usually away from my blogging apparatus, or something else interrupts. I updated my Read In 2013 page with my completed goals (mostly good news there). I updated the header of my blog to the pretty pear tree image I have in my blog badge. And, I coördinated the colors to match. Whew. It’s dinnertime, or close enough to it.

As Tigger would say, TTFN!

**Edit: Well, I HAD a color scheme to match. It didn’t work out so well. Oh well. Maybe we’ll look into that part again at a later date.

Celebrating The Magic of Disney Music

I have a bit of a confession to make at the moment. *clears throat*  The kid within my heart loves Disney movies, and especially the music within them! Recently, I’ve been a wonderful opportunity: to listen to a sample album of Disney classics and modern tunes! And, even more exciting, I get to offer an opportunity to get a lot more songs to my blog readers!!

Because of my confession, you can guess my immediate reaction…

*jumps up and down* Yip,yip, hooray, calloo, callay!
(Yes, I’m a bit excited. *Super-grin* Open-mouthed smile)

The Grammar Trip

I’ve shared and enjoyed a certain grammar site in semi-private company for a while, but it just dawned on me to share this news on my blog. (Yes, I know…the bulb is dim. As soon as I can afford it, I’ll get help. What’s the going rate for brain transplants nowadays? ). So, we’re taking a trip to Grammar-land today to share a wonderful tool to help us all with our grammar.

Using my imagination

I’m having a bit of storytime on my blog at the moment. So, get your cookies and milk (or whatever you prefer) and sit a spell. Don’t worry, it won’t be a long spell, as I’d like to avoid cramps and boredom. Hehehe

Italo Calvino said: The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts. Let’s describe the ghosts that live in this house:

Today, I’m imagining the little old couple that lived in this house. Grandpa worked in the field, and after Grandma died of a heart problem, he did the best he could to “get along” until he could see her again. When that day finally came, Grandma was waiting with a scowl and saying “what the heck did you do to my house?!”

What can we learn from this ditty?

Perhaps, sometimes, there’s no pleasing people.

Or, don’t wait for better..live your life now.

Or…maybe Grandma was just a hard-nosed bitch. ;D

Then again, maybe it’s a different house all together. One with Casper and his mean uncles roaming all over the surrounding land. At least, that’s what came to me when I first thought of “oozing ghosts”. Shall I continue, or perhaps go farther into my imagination? (I do have an overactive one sometimes…he he) How weird am I? Do I really want to know? Do you?

Just a little update

I’m up at a weird time. Perhaps, it’s the time change from Daylight Savings. Or, because the football team I was rooting for just blew it at the end…AGAIN, and it’s taking me a while to get the bad taste out of my mouth. Or, maybe because I’m relishing the quiet from another stressful day of someone saying I’m not good enough and should die. Do I think this post will eradicate these feelings? Maybe not, but hopefully doing something productive will help a bit. I’ve updated my reading list on the blog this week to see how far I’ve progressed. Though, I think I’m missing a challenge somewhere. Have yet to update my GoodReads for the last two books read, but eventually I’ll get there.
In the meantime, I’m giving myself the thumbs up to encourage me forward.

Oh my, it looks like I’m hitchhiking there. Might as well go for it…

May I hitch a ride with you? [turns into virtual amoeba and hops on your shoulder] Okay, let’s go! 😀
