Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #92

1. So, the cicadas finally finished their insect orgy and died. No more shrieking coming from the trees! Yay!
1b. But now my computer has decided to start making this bizarre and intensely annoying sound. It’s like a “putt-putt-putt-putt” sort of sound - reminds me of a trolling motor on a small boat. It’s an ok […]

Shortcutz: Day Two

More quizzes. Deal with it. Heh.
What flavor shake are you?

I can’t argue with much of that, although I might want to try, being naturally dramatic and all.
What reptile are you?

I almost didn’t take this one because I’m SO not a reptile person, but I must say I found the results….intriguing. Hhhhmmm….
So I’m a […]

Shortcutz: Day One

Three Things I’ve Learned in the Last Few Days

1. People do a lot of Google searches for the phrase “nude self-portrait.” Really. A lot.
2. Lindt’s 70% Cacao Cherry & Chili chocolate bar is so good it’s probably illegal in some states. I like it. Really. A lot.
3. No matter how pretty brick sidewalks look in a small town historic district, they are not […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Nude, Week 4

Well, it’s official. I’ve lost my mind, and I place the blame squarely on the (nude) shoulders of the Self-Portrait Challenge and the hell-yes-it’s-challenging theme for June.
Since I was determined to participate this month, despite this theme hitting all kinds of buttons on my Neurotic-O-Meter, I tied up Modesty and Panic, and stuffed them into […]

Monday Memery

I first saw this over at Sticking to the Point, then at Public Musings of a Mama, then at Fond of Snape. Now I’m going to play!
