Saturday Sauntering

Edible, adj.: Good to eat, and wholesome to digest, as a worm to a toad, a toad to a snake, a snake to a pig, a pig to a man, and a man to a worm. ~Ambrose Bierce

DH got up yesterday, looking through the pantry and fridge before settling on ice cream for breakfast.

I said, "Ice cream for breakfast?"

He replied, "Nothing else to eat."

I looked up from my yogurt and strawberries, DD glanced over from where she was cooking eggs and I thought about the three kinds of cold cereal, the oatmeal, yogurt, eggs, pancake mix and loaf of bread for toast or french toast. And then just said, "Huh."


DH's phone rang at 3:13 a.m. today. Problem at work (as always), and he's still up. So am I. There are days (so many days) I wish we could have him leave his position. I swear, it's slowly sucking away his sanity.


Did a little writing yesterday. Had fun. I think one of the reasons I typically write stuff that's humorous is because it gives me a chance to giggle. I love thinking, "What's the craziest thing that could happen here?" and then letting my brain run wild.

Hopefully, I'll get this done soon -- it's the new sequel to "Kitchen Matches" (the old one being changed to a completely different story with a new cast of characters), and involves Zach and a cherub... okay, Zack and a wedding planner, but you get the idea.

Am going to try to write more today.

As a side note, every time I write that I'm going to "try" to do anything, I hear Yoda in my brain: "Do. Or do not. There is no try."



You Are Conventional

You are a pretty average guy or girl next door, and you live a pretty blissful life because of it.

You fit in with almost any crowd, and you have a lot of people who you consider to be good friends.

You are happy with your life, and it's likely you feel quite blessed. You don't let yourself feel dissatisfied.

You have an optimistic attitude that has served you well. By staying positive, you are better off then most people.

Hmmm... 50/50

LOL My DH is the same way. But more often than not he'd rather go hungry than eat something he doesn't want to eat. I can't figure it out.

Glad you got some writing done. I got zip, though I've been brainstorming. This weekend is going to be so busy I don't know if I'll get anything done.

Mulletman = cold cereal for breakfast. End of story.

I've been known to eat ice cream for breakfast...

You Are Uncomplicated
No doubt about it - life is very complex and confusing. However, you believe things don't have to be this way.
You try to swim against the tide and keep things simple. You hate chaos and drama.

You are honest and direct. You feel like too much confusion results from people lying to others and themselves.
You are also very organized and tidy. You keep track of your possessions, and you try not to get weighed down by stuff.

They were doing pretty well until that last paragraph. *g*

LOVE YODA! *G* Hubs had a job like that. It wasn't just sucking his sanity but seemed like his energy and soul, too.

You Are Thoughtful: On the surface, you may seem to have a lot in common with everyone else - but looks are deceiving.
You've got quite a few quirks that make you unique. You aren't weird for its own sake, but you enjoy doing your own thing.
You blend in with the crowd most of the time, but if someone looks at you closely, you start to stand out.
You don't try to be anyone you're not. You're happy to follow your own path, no matter how mainstream or alternative it is.

Pretty accurate actually, well about everything but standing out. *G*

I hope you have a fun day!
