Move Along, Nothing to See Here

It's a nipply 31° in the holler this morning with promises of spring-like temps by this afternoon. I've got my fresh, hot cup of Clover Valley coffee (the Dolla' Genrul house brand.. I'm a little broke this week) and I'm listening to The Blue Oyster Cult jam on "Godzilla" through my nifty new earbuds, plugged into my computer.

No one can get offended by my choice of music, resulting in emergency prayer meetings and I'm immune to catty little passive aggressive comments made by co-workers.

Everyone wins!


I've been struggling with what to write this morning and I'm not having much luck, so instead, here's a list of all the topics I started to cover, but ended up deleting:

Jon and Kate Plus 8 on TLC: I love watching this happy little family, but every angle I tried to write from, seemed creepy and stalkish. I sounded like a crazed, lonely old spinister peering in the window of the semi-normal family down the road.

Not a good image for me.

The Critters: Sammy's still hairless, scratching constantly and I'm completely at a loss as to what to do to fix it. I'm hoping he can get a steroid shot soon.

Spooky still won't go in my room and her litter box is sitting in the hallway where I trip over it daily. I'm convinced she thinks I did something horrible to Scotty to cause his death in there. Seriously, you carry her in there and she cries and runs like hell in the opposite direction.

Yoda is still psycho, in that cute Chihuahuaranian sort of way.

I'm Broke: Hell, I'm sick of hearing myself say it, so I know ya'll have to be tired of me whining about it.

Bubbles: Again.. sick of hearing myself say it.. etc.

Anywho, I think I'm experiencing a case of the end of winter / pms onset / I'm so cranky I could slap a puppy (not really) writer's dry spell.

My plan is to just ride it out, this too shall pass.

Ya'll have a good one :)

Well, I suppose you could open a dictionary and point to a random word and then use it in a sentence...LOL. Or click on some random crap on the internet and blog about what you find???

I've seen the Jon/Kate thing online and watched a couple shows of theirs online as well. He seems pretty easy going and cool. She seems ummm, a little err, high strung? LOL.

I love watching Jon and Kate, plus 8 and being able to say - boy, am I glad I'm not them!!

I can't imagine having a litter of kids, it must be a nightmare.

Laying low, trying to stay out of the slap zone.

Very-very busy week.

Just heard about the teevee show last night - and now have to figure out a way to catch all the beginning shows!

Your assignment: Write about your favorite toe.

Plenty more ideas where that one came from. :-)

blogger hates everyone today, don't take it personally (unless you want to.)

I love Jon & Kate + 8. They make me realize my life is not nearly as crazy and hideous as I'd like to believe. Anyone who can survive 8 kids are heroes in my book.

I've had a case lately of blogging blues or cabin fever or writer's block - call it what you want there. The past couple of days, I've still been reading all the blogs on my reader but just not having enough mental energy often to even comment. THe lurker comes out and strikes from time to time ya know. Or maybe I just felt for a change that I had nothing to say, no input. There's a first for ya -which is what most people who know me well would probably think anyway!

I LOVE Jon & Kate plus 8! It certainly doesn't appeal to everyone but that couple is so dang likable and the kids are adorable I can't help but watch.

Um - do you kind of wonder if your room isn't haunted? I mean - animals sense that stuff .... :)
