The Loafer

Somebody, make me a loaf of bread…whoops, too late, I already am one. Hah! I have been tired today, though I am not sure why. Sleep, yes…that’s covered. An easy day, I spent just kind of loafing (putting off bills/demands today – shh, they’ll hear us). It’s going to be an interesting time to make up today, but sometimes, one just needs a day. Or five? Wishful thinking, I know.
Speaking of wishful thinking -whoa, what a segway-, I found some letters by Jane Austen online. She mostly writes to her family members. Some letters have romantic tendencies (like her writings), some have a a quirky sense of humor – which, of course, attracted me like a bee to a flower. 

Some quotes from the letters:

I had a very pleasant evening, however, though you will probably find out that there was no particular reason for it; but I do not think it worth while to wait for enjoyment until there is some real opportunity for it.” — letter of January 21 1799

I could no more write a [historical] romance than an epic poem. I could not sit seriously down to write a serious romance under any other motive than to save my life; and if it were indispensable for me to keep it up and never relax into laughing at myself or other people, I am sure I should be hung before I had finished the first chapter.” — letter of April 1st 1816

I have read [Byron’s] The Corsair, mended my petticoat, and have nothing else to do.” — letter of March 5, 1814

And, now…I have nothing else to do. LOL So, excuse me while I go find something. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves until I return. 😉

And now for something totally different

Yes, the title is a vague Monty Python reference, but not for the reason you may be thinking.
I had planned to blog about something else tonight. However, upon visiting a certain blog friend of mine, and a speech that she wrote/gave, she inspired me to do something totally different. Another acrostic poem has leapt into my brain, and practically screamed “publish me”. It also references a recent topic discussed on one of YouTuber Phillip DeFranco’s videos, though I’m not sure why my brain picked that particular topic (I looked at the letter V and boom! Lightning struck inside my brain (and, yeah, it did hurt. ;P [“Hook” movie reference]).

Ahh, now that’s the way to hide a dirty message. 😉
Opinions, comments…the lines are open now. Offers are not…unless you’re paying big bucks. then, we’ll talk. ;D
Who knows where my imagination will lead me next…hopefully to someone cute, tall, slightly muscular, witty, and able to put up with my crap and still give me wild, hot sex. Know any guys like that? Send him here immediately for some rainy day games. 😉
TTFN!

For whom the bell tolls

Mama Earth tired me out and gave me a touch more of the itchies, so I’ve found something we can watch while I scratch. It’s those lovable muppets imitating Law & Order…

Mama Earth revisited

Dear Mother Nature,

I told you I’d type with you again soon. I hope you’ve had a good day! Writing this letter tonight reminds me I need to set out my weekly recycling.  By the way, doesn’t my blog friend Nikki just rock? ;D And, the Houston Astros looked pretty nifty in those special green uniforms as well (thank goodness they won, else they may have been burnt green – LOL).  I also stayed outside for part of the day in your honor (pruning the yard…had to do something…and, it needed doing. hah!). Okay, so I had to be nagged by the television droning on about Earth day activities to do it, but I did it! Please, I hope you don’t give me more poison oak for doing so. Pesky crap, that is. Why was that stuff made, anyway? 😛

Tips of the day:
#1. For those of you inside the US, look for the USDA certified organic label on those organic products. You’ll know the product isn’t just blowing smoke up your butt with a false claim. (Organic is also sometimes the cheaper option…look for coupons and sales!)

#2. This tip I need to seriously remember…always carry a bag in the car for when you go to a store, so you can avoid bagging your purchased goods in those plastic bags. Ask for paper bags, too (it’s not always an option, but it doesn’t hurt to ask!).

#3. Uses for Plastic bags: stuffing – in toys, in packages to be shipped, in holiday packages (wrap package in newspaper comics instead of holiday wrapping paper, too), as temporary holders of goods, to pick up creepy-crawlies. When getting rid of plastic bags, ask your recycling center if they take them. If not, find a Kroger’s grocery store, for they just started a program to recycle plastic bags.

I hope that’s a good start for all. Any other tips? Do share with the class. 😉

Happy Earth Day!
PS. Check out all the folks celebrating Earth Day! Google rocks.
PPS. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  ‘nough said.

Dear Mama Earth

Dear Mother Nature,

Happy birthday to you, Mother N! Well, officially it’s tomorrow, April 22nd, aka Earth Day, but who says I can’t celebrate early and all week long. After all, you’re definitely worth it. By the way, do you like my colors around here? Green is such a pretty color. Then again, all sorts of pretty colors are a part of your rainbow. Thank you for being so tolerant to our somewhat lazy species here. 😉

My tip of the day to all humans: Recycle something. It’s so easy to pick one thing and recycle it…newspaper, milk cartons, soda cans…heck, do all three. If you can just commit to this one task, you can make a difference (and with the cans, money, too – bonus!)

to be continued…
