Thursday This n That

Coffee is awesome.

The world has gone freaking insane.

The hydrangea that the deer ate is coming back.  I went over to that garden the other day because I thought I saw something green smack in the middle, where the hydrangea had been.  Sure enough, there's a clump of tiny leaves struggling to thrive.  Yay.  I also have anemones popping up where I planted some bulbs months ago.  I thought the bulbs were dead, but nope.

Life will find a way.  Sometimes.  Maybe.  My hummingbird bush is dead. For reals. There's no coming back from dead.

Except when you're Chester Chipmunk.  He's alive when I was certain he was dead.

My brain is stuck on edit mode.  This comes, I expect, from finishing SU and jumping right into editing UEQ.  I'm editing the TV, books I'm trying to read, my own speech, other people's speech... Yeah, that last one is only in my head.  I don't want to get punched in the mouth by someone out in the world for correcting them aloud.  Okay, sometimes I reword Hubs out loud, but he's used to living with a woman whose brain is up her edit hole.

I used that phrase - my head is up my edit hole - when talking to an acquaintance recently.  I thought she'd pee her pants laughing.  I should take this show on the road.

Does anyone else here watch Face Off?  It's a competition show with movie makeup artists doing challenges - like create a demon makeup or a witch or a fairy.  I think it's pretty neat.  Hubs tolerates it.  It's not his thing.  And that's okay.

Okay, I think that's it for me.  What have you got for me?


  1. Coffee is the elixir of the gods. Therefore I am divine.

    Boone knocked over the box the new vacuum came in. (Still sitting in my office because I haven't dug out the papework to sign up for warranty.) The reason? Adidas was sitting there meowing at it. She is now curled up inside happy as a clam.

    Wordpress no longer publishes to FB profile pages. They only publish to FB "business" pages. Except that screws up the algorithms for the business page. Of course, FB and Twitter just piss me off at people I would normally like.

    Stupid is as stupid does and there's a whole lot of stupid out there.

    The revisions on this book are coming slower than molasses at the South Pole. But they are coming.

    On SyFy channel right? I used to watch. There was some amazing "movie" makeup created during crunch time.

    That's my life at the moment. Time to get back to those dang revisions. Later, tater.

  2. Heh, cats and boxes. FB doesn't let anything publish blogs to profile pages anymore. Not sure about publishing to a business page, though. I've always done those by hand. And yes, FB and Twitter really seem to show you things about your 'friends' you really would've been happier not knowing. Ugh. Sorry about your revisions. :hugs: Yep, Syfy.

    I hope your revisions start to go better for you. :hugs:
