The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer. ~ Edward R. Murrow

I tried to get into Blogger all morning without success. Very Frustrating. Oh well, I'm over it now.

Was reading through my Womans Day magazine last night and came across some things I just had to share. What does this have to do with writing? Nothing, really. Just felt like gabbing a bit today instead.

First off, if you're down and need a grin, check out Cute Overload. There are pictures of nearly every kind of critter.... cute, cute, cute.

Then I read about "Jobs You'd Switch To" if you could.

One lady, after my own heart, answered: Romance Writer. Note to Amber R., "Just do it."

But this one kind of bugged me, because if you're dreaming why not go for it all, the brass ring, the whole enchilada?? Mary M. said she'd like to be "Backup singer for a country band." Me? I'd simply say, "Famous, multi-platinum country singer." Forget that "backup" stuff. Sheesh. Note to Mary, "Dream big."

And then, everyone's favorite article, "Lose Weight Without Dieting". There is sage advice that, as a chronic dieter, I never would have figured out on my own. For instance:

* Rather than the usual doughnut, enjoy an Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat waffle... Note to Womans Day - substituting a WW Waffle for a doughnut IS dieting, IMHO

Maybe I was just feeling a little snarky last night, but all I could think of is, "They get paid for writing that?"

Incidentally, for some unknown reason, I'm not getting any of my comments emailed to me. I opened up my blog today and discovered something like 12 comments that I didn't know I had. If you commented on any earlier posts, thanks -- but I don't have a clue what you said.

So, to start in the way I began: Blogger-grrrrr.... Guess I wasn't over it after all.

Yeah, what's with that backup singer thing? Why not go for the whole enchilada (and forget the diet! *g*)?

LOL I think WW is written in Stepford, CT. Such silly little stories and suggestions. If they didn't pay so well I'd never sub to them....which is probably why I never get anything accepted by them... bad karma. Love the dieting tips. Yah, riiiiight. Now does that Eggo nutrigrain waffle thing come with syrup? Bacon? Dare I ask sausage??? heheheheee.

You wanna talk about snarky???? Or maybe I'm just downright ticked. I'm going to make a late day entry to my blog........ Grrrr X 1000
