Happy Birthday to my friend D! Her birthday was Friday, and to extend the celebration, here are some of her funny quotes from the past year.
Basically, I decided not to read a productivity book last night, because it looked like a long-winded waste of time, and decided to jumpstart my productivity without it.
If I ever send a GIF, know that I meant it with the depths of my soul and thought it was Deeply Important.
I’m involved in witchcraft because of my love for pandas, apparently.
I pray for him occasionally. I also pray for everyone who knows him just in case he has not repented.
In response to some disturbing Bible story coloring pages: Why do children need coloring pages about genuinely horrific things? Do we give them coloring pages about horrible events in the news to help them process them? XD
Look what just came up in my Amazon suggestions. “Game play is the same as the classic UNO game, but there’s a wild card rule unique to this deck. Look for the “Wild Power of Friendship Card”!” Uno is not about the power of friendship. It is not about cooperation. It is about cackling evilly while you make someone else draw four multiple times in a row.
What’s going to be really rough is when we reach the 2040s, and “the forties” will no longer obviously refer to the 1940s. I’m glad I realized this now so that I have twenty years to prepare myself.
Now you can no longer say, “Never have I ever spontaneously combusted.”
After using it on a Saturday: It is always Throwback Thursday when I want to be ironic while bringing up a random memory.
I had a full on fight or flight reaction to this book. And by fight or flight, I mean fight.
This novel seems like something the homeschool moms of my childhood would have adored, but I feel confident that a majority of their children would have liked it too.
I sorted through the sea of scrap paper one shots that have been accumulating on my desk, and I have SEVENTEEN stories I wrote at work that I still haven’t typed up and/or finished. So. When I get back from out of town, let’s have a writing night where I focus on typing up all of this. If I die, I don’t want someone going through THESE personal effects.
While we were in the hotel last week, I took a moment to reread a recent story and thought to myself afterwards, among other things, “The obscure C.S. Lewis quote was CHEF’S KISS!”
And then I was like, “But I am the chef. So that is an extremely vain thing to say.”
But, on the other hand, I do know my audience extremely well. XD I wrote this for myself alone, and myself thoroughly enjoys it.
Also, TBT to Dad thinking the rental van was going to break down when my sister and I were both typing about 90 wpm in different rhythms and he thought it was the car.
This has also been a fan favorite. With me being my own fandom here. XD
I accidentally pressed the panic button once at my job, and it worked! Complete panic immediately broke out!
If you have ever heard me say, “People faint FORWARD, not BACKWARD,” while watching a movie, a TV show, a skit, or playacting children, you may be eligible for compensation. You can direct your complaints to this book. [Encyclopedia Brown Solves Them All]
On special blankets in children’s entertainment and their usual horrible end: I don’t like that blanket-loving children having nothing but 1) Linus and 2) devastation.
Maybe just don’t sell your Cursed Objects for $25 or any other price?
I only just learned last year that Stitch is an alien. I was SHOCKED. I knew that ohana means family, and that family means no one gets left behind, because the Internet drilled that into me, but I had no CLUE that Stitch was an alien.
On a children’s historical fiction book: It’s fairly depressing, but in a historically accurate way.
Since I am already telling such a ridiculously lengthy tale, I’ll throw in the detail for free that I spent time admiring a cute guy’s nose for maybe fifteen minutes while we waited to get started.
Whenever I run out of creative ideas, I just start drawing. I let the muse take me into darkness and creepy faces.
