Friday Feedback (April 24)
Natalee I guess I never did post them on here (re: Xmas photos). No,I haven’t uploaded them to Flickr yet. I will have to do that…once I relocate them on my desktop. I’ll keep you posted!

R.I. P. Bea Arthur
Nomad I hear ya! I dunno if I can pinpoint exactly when Bea started making my life a little better, but I’d have to guess around the time Maude was still on the air. I think the show was on for like 6 years, but I don’t think I probably started watching it until the last year. I’m positive I wasn’t old enough to appreciate the humor, but I learned to in time. Bea was a very talented, savvy lady whom I will sincerely miss. Here’s hoping she’s in a better place.

Operation Cleanout: Day 1
Natalee When you talk of vulture-like relatives getting your goat, all I can think of is “I bet they’d have taken that too if there’d been one! (re: goat)” But you know what? Even though I was caught off guard by the extent of the whole situation, I can’t really say I’m truly surprised. That’s what I get for giving my dad SUCH advance notice (2 months) of my plans (re: coming with friends to help him clear out some of the junk). Just another prime example of what he’s really like; always sneakily one step ahead, with a disarming smile on his face and an innocent “Who me?” attitude. Ech. But, you make a good point: thankfully I was able to salvage the few things I really wanted. It’s better than nuthin’.

Thanks for commenting. I appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Operation Cleanout: The Photos
Natalee That’s awesome! (re: that I’ve inspired you to begin taking photos of your food) There’s something oddly satisfying about it. And don’t even feel self-conscious about it. I know I was…at first, but have since SO gotten over it. I figure with so much other shit going on in the world, if my taking pictures of my food, or whatever, in a public place is that head-scratchingly interesting, then so be it. It’s my food, my money and my creative outlet, so go ahead and stare. It’ll give them something to talk about later.

And speaking of, I’ve actually generated more interest in my blog by people asking me about why I’m taking a picture of something that may seem mundane to most onlookers. I explain about my blog, then they usually ask for the URL and we all move forward in life.

By the way, thanks for the compliment(s). ๐Ÿ™‚

Agent Blue Star I never told you this, but sometimes I take pictures of you taking pictures of me taking pictures of my food, etc. I know it sounds implausible, but it’s totally true. Remind me to show you my top secret ‘P’ album. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And just so my reader(s?) know, I’ve never ‘screamed’ in my life, for you to stop the truck so I can leap out like a gazelle (a gazelle with thyroid condition) and take the photo du jour. However, I have “exclaimed” once or twice…or said very loudly (thus the body-jarring brake stomp) “Hey! Turn around…please.” LOL! What can I say? I know what I want when I see it.

YoVille Remodel
Brittanyyates Ha ha! Yes, my current YoVille living room IS very Madonna…sans the Mommie Dearest iron fist. Yikes. I think her leotard’s on too tight.

As far as your home office goes, remember the immortal words of Dr. Frank N. Furter: “Don’t dream it – Be it!” October is book fair month. Let me know what kinda stuff you like to read and I’ll keep an eye out for ya! ๐Ÿ˜‰

They’re Quite Aware…
Terri Thank you! I’m glad I’m not alone in thinking it was interesting. I agree, I think I would probably put candles in it as well, though a friend’s suggestion of incense, also appeals to me. Thanks for commenting! ๐Ÿ™‚

Shells Oh, thank you! I thought it was unusual. I’m glad you like it too! And the outside idea would be great for him especially since he has a patio (complete with patio furniture, table, etc.) and has parties. It WOULD be a great idea to put out there (for parties). I’d probably put citronella candles in it, in that case, so it could do double duty as ambiance AND mosquito repellent. LOL! Thanks for the comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

Agent Blue Star Well, if you’re looking forward to watching ME socialize, get ready for some totally plausible performance art! I have a bevy of moves in my repertoire: the knowing nod…the pleasant smile…the raucous laughter…sad story eyes…witty reparte…AND MORE! Depending on who I’m talking to, you may get to see me run the whole gamut!

And mentioning your code word move, reminded me that when I used to go out to the “clubs” with friends, we too would have a code word, but ours was for guys we thought were hot. The code word (pre Bronco chase on the freeway) was: OJ (for orange juice). Weird.

Thanks for taking the time to comment! ๐Ÿ˜€

Lynda Thank you! I’m feeling much more secure in my choice now that so many people have given it a thumbs up. I usually don’t get this ‘bajiggity’ over my choices, but I don’t want to embarrass myself/make a bad impression in front of people I’ve never met before (and will most likely never see again…ha ha).

And I totally agree, I think it’s a great idea to throw oneself a birthday bash if you have the means. Why the heck NOT? Personally, I was more than a little surprised that alleged “professional” business people (re: deejays, caterers, etc.) would even CONSIDER giving their opinion (esp. a negative one) to a potential customer on what was “odd” or not, according to them (re: it being “odd/unusual” to throw oneself a party(. WHAT-EVER! Especially in this economy? Can they really be that retarded? Wow.

Thanks for commenting! I appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Currently Reading: Part 1
Agent Blue Star I think we may be talking about two different Susan Pages. While yours indeed does have ties to NPR, mine is pretty relationship workshoplicious. She’s written several books on the subject and is big on pushing what she’s termed a “spiritual relationship.” You can visit her web site here.

And as far as the Mad Libs go, which you never did finish, Mister ‘I have the patience of a ferret,’ was actually not in her book, but the one I actually liked, Quirkyalone. But you make a good point. I too would have to start checking out my therapist’s credentials if he/she started in with the Mad Libs approach. LOL!

Currently Reading: Pat 2 Volume 1
Lynda Spinster. That word always makes me think of that BBC show, Waiting for God. It’s a TV show about a retirement community, where the main character, Diana Trent resides. She’s the main character, who single-handedly keeps everyone on their toes with her blunt, realistically cynical outlook.

Anyway, there was a scene early on where she meets her next door neighbor and he asks:
What did you do when you were alive?
I was a spinster.
Is that a profession?
It’s an attitude. I was a self-contained unit. I did exactly as I pleased.

The book is a very quick read (I read it in one sitting) and has some great insights. You should check it out! They have used copies on Amazon for just 1ยข!

Thanks for commenting! ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember the show Waiting For God but I didn’t remember that line. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. AWESOME. ๐Ÿ™‚
