Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
I ran a fever yesterday, which was more exercise than I’ve managed in a week
So I called in sick, sent the kids to school, climbed back into bed, and slept for four hours. Then I had soup, coffee, and cough meds, turned on the computer, and assembled this in haste before the kids came home.
You’ve been warned.
Forget the Stickers and Happy Faces
THIS is a behavior modification chart:
I think my kids would appreciate an early warning system.
Subliminal Suggestion or Stockholm Syndrome?
It’s gotta be one or the other, because I know this isn’t true.
Or wasn’t true.
Was I so bored I didn’t KNOW I was bored?
I mean, it does explain my adolescent-levels of angst when the WiFi glitches . . .
Threat Level: Rosé
“Oh, crap! Mom just grabbed the Pinot Grigo! Run! RUN!!!”
What would Writer Wine Levels be?
Wordcount Reward Shiraz
Query Rejection Cabernet Franc
Agent Acceptance Champagne
My Editor Hates Me Riesling
Remaindered Mad Dog 20 20
This may be the fever . . .
. . . but this trailer gave me cold chills.
But . . . Is it just me, or does adding Morgan Freeman to any movie
automatically raise the plausibility level?
A drug mule achieving omniscience from ingesting unexplained blue sugar crystals? Check.
A comet hitting Earth? Check.
Elderly Black Ops Agents coming out of retirement? Check.
A variety of alien attacks and also Kevin Costner as Robin Hood? Check.
A decent remake of Conan the . . . okay, he’s good, but no one is THAT good.
(Yo, Watson—plan a visit around the second week in August, would you?)
Where there’s a Wil, there’s a way
Some of you have probably seen this already.
But it’s worth seeing again, and it’s worth spreading around.
We are doing really well.
