I can’t help it

Published June 4, 2022 by Nan Mykel

A fellow blogger wondered the other day if readers resent those who post every day.  I want to say that I feel the need to post one, two or three times a day so my brain doesn’t drown.  When I wake in the morning my mind starts sputtering and if I don’t get it out I could conk out or explode.  Now there–I’m being melodramatic\; sorry.  So I’m going to try and limit myself to one blog a day, but put the blogs together.  But then, I love my Media Library photos, all 1200 of them.  I’ve grown attached to them, and when I look at some of them I get inspired.  Like the one above apparently by Nick Brandt.

This is early morning and I’m still being flooded.  When I’m impetuous I often live to regret it, so I’ll change my mind now.

I’ll just tell you one good idea any of us could work on and maybe share with me, anyhow:

An everyday song needs to be written to an old catchy tune–one that keeps running through your mind, like You Are My Sunshine used to  in my youth.  To go with the catchy tune would be words about current events.  A little two or four-step blog (the dancing kind) would automatically accompany this in a good-natured, jokey way.  Goals this might accomplish:

  1. Prevent a heart attack
  2. Keep us in a good mood
  3. Since it doesn’t have to be sung out loud, it can bolster you inside
  4. Can numb you to what’s being thrown your way
  5. Hopefully prevent you from being gunned down
  6. May develop a talent you never knew you had
  7. Help us love one another or at least the innocent babe they once were?
  8. Fat chance, but at least it’s an idea.
  9. Something to do in the pandemic
  10. Include David McCormick’s being bullied out of his run for office by fellows

New Roommate, Reblogged Poem Fragment by lifelessons – a blog by Judy Dykstra-Brown

Love it!

New Roommate, Chapter 2

I have the need to be alone, to hide away, sequester,
but my roommate never leaves the room! She’s somewhat of a nester.
She seems to be ensconced here with her creepy boyfriend Lester,
and my irritation’s turned into a boil about to fester.
I may not make it to the end of the next semester
when I can find a roommate who is less of a rester.
She can be a talker or messy or a jester.
She can use my makeup, wear my clothes or gripe and pester.
In fact, I will take anyone short of a child molester,
so long as she’s a roamer—a gad-about, a quester!!!!

My Comeuppance

Published October 21, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Occasionally I do water exercises and there’s a 7-year old boy learning to swim also in the pool with us.  The other day he swam up to me and touched my bulging belly and asked “what’s in there?”  I asked “what’s in your stomach?” And he said “food.”  That’s when it dawned on me that he had expected the word “a baby.”

Two on a Rant

It’s no secret that I’ve made more mistakes in the past 2 weeks than in the past 2 years.

Of course, if I could remember past yesterday, I might reconsider that statement.

This is a summation of what my short-term (and only) memory is telling me:

Or, possibly, it’s more like this:

Either way, nothing is going in and what comes out isn’t quite right.

How’s work been going this week? (You might ask).  Here’s a clue

Unfortunately, I have a work ethic that’s on steroids

First of all, I don’t want to go anywhere else.  I love what I do — when I do it right.  It’s not like I can go elsewhere to get a job.  Who in their right mind (other than social services) wants to hire an anal retentive dyslexic paper pusher who has an editing disability?

This has happened to me twice in the last…

The Joke’s on Me

Published October 3, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Wow! I came close to losing it tonight. My helper was visiting and I thought it would be funny to have a photo of a crocodile among the several photos on my gravatar.  She helped me go ahead and make the crocodile my avatar so  (I thought)  whenever I had a particular kind of post I could use that one for my avatar.

Later, after that was completed, I happened to look at some of my comments and they ALL — back to the beginning of my blog about two years ago–had my picture as a crocodile!  In case you’re wondering, this was almost the  photo of me presented to the world with sweet blogs as well as raunchy ones:

So, in over reaction to my close call, I’ve at least temporarily changed it to me, in pink, tra la!
