Procrastination & Things… :)

Supposed to be writing…..

Annndddddddd I just spent 30 minutes procrastinating by scrolling around on pinterest, changing the wax in my wax warmer, & eating 2 brownies. (The 2nd brownie was an accident, I didn’t even realize I was eating it until I was half way finished with it. ๐Ÿ˜€ ) — Not my fault. I cannot be blamed.

This is my life, Lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cheers! :)

Sam: “You’re my friend. I’m never going to take a woman away from you.”
Frasier: “What about Diane?”
Sam: “And didn’t God punish me with a vengeance?”
๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
Haha!

Having myself a little Cheers binge-a-thon on Netflix. — Cheers was before my time, well, technically it started airing before I was born & I was 2 when the series ended. So until recently I’ve never bothered to watch it. — I found Frasier earlier this year, and what a gem that is! ๐Ÿ˜€

In the last couple of years or so I have watched MacGyver, The A-Team, Magnum P.I, Murder She Wrote, Frasier, Green Acres, Hawaii five-0, and I’m sure a couple I’ve forgotten about, lol. — Something I’ve noticed tho is that every time I sit down to watch these shows, I find myself wishing today’s shows were like those of yesterday’s. — Cause I sure do love ’em… ๐Ÿ˜€

Fun Facts.. & an Opinion or Two.

1.) 60 million years ago there was a super giant monster snake that roamed the Earth. Titanoboa: Weighing in at 2500 pounds & 48 feet long. (Whaaaa? Yeah, you read that right.)

2.) 2 words. 1 animal. Think respiratory muscle paralysis. — Cone Snail! — 1 piece of advice. Whatever you do, don’t touch it! — Should you vacation in Australia… don’t touch it! Lol.

3.) In fact, don’t touch anything in the ocean. Nothing at all. Stay away. It’s all dangerous. (Okay that one is an opinion, lol.) —- BUT should you venture into the ocean & touch things or if things in the ocean touch you.. & it then proves to be rather painful… you should seek help from a medical professional. Lol! — I tried to warn you, I did all I could. ๐Ÿ˜‰

4.) Chernobyl. The residents of Pripyat had no idea what was going on until like 36 to 48 hours or so after the accident. By then, tons of them were already feeling the effects of the radiation. — Seriously, when there has been a nuclear disaster, let’s not take our time informing the folks that are being contaminated by it. (That last part is an opinion, Lol, but a good one!)

5.) You probably shouldn’t live very close to a nuclear plant. That could very well be a disaster waiting to happen. Get far, far away. Far away. & once you’ve gotten far away…. go a little further. Lol. & just keep going. If you’ve gone that far & you pass by another one… keep going. Go passed that one & get further away. ๐Ÿ˜‰ — Seriously… this is good advice, lol!

6.) Mudskippers. Coolest fish ever. They can breathe through their skin. They flip around in the mud. & they’re kind of aggressive & a little moody. They like to throw down with each other. — It’s pretty funny.

7.) Antarctica. There are these little research communities up there. Some people stay all year, through all the seasons. They hire people to work during the summer months… & a lot of those guys only stay through the summer because winters are so rough. — They even have like little grocery stores & all sorts of little things. They’re practically in their own little world, cut off from the rest of civilization. — & when they have winter storms, the ice comes like 5 or 6 feet inside their doors & they have to chip it away after the storm is over. — Pretty cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

In case you guys haven’t noticed…. I watch a lot of documentaries. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Humiliation, Humor, & Happiness…

I am going to humiliate myself in public….. ย ย All in the name of book research, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yep, I’m going to play a round of golf!

Haha, thing is… I’ve never played golf. I’ve never even been on a golf course. — ย I’ve played putt-putt, like the little kid version of golf you play on vacation with the whole family, and even then all I did was humiliate myself. Lol! — Because I can’t even play that! (I have even been known to pick the ball up & place it into the hole a time or two… Yep, that’s right, I super cheat.)

There are some important golfing scenes in my book, so I have no choice but to get out there and play some golf.

— 3 things. —

Thing 1: It will probably be the worst golfing anyone has ever seen, no seriously.. it will be ๐Ÿ˜‰ , but it’s still exciting & fun because it’s a new adventure. It’s something I’ve never experienced & to be honest, never wanted too. — But even doing something that will embarrass you to no end, is fun when you know you’ll have a good time with good people & make new memories. ย — (Yes, my husband is likely to record this sporting disaster & share it with everyone, haha, but I can’t say that I’d blame him.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Thing 2: This sort of research is so much fun! The kind where you can actually get out & experience what you are trying to put into words…. it just makes things that much more exciting. It makes writing about it more exciting. — Plus, there is nothing quite like being able to say, “Who me? Oh, I’m a writer & I’m doing some book research.” — Word!

Thing 3: When I’m doing research… I’m making progress, and progress is always good! ๐Ÿ™‚

So sometime in the next couple of weeks I’m going golfing. — I will be sure to let you guys know how it goes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I Shouldn’t Be Here….

I shouldnโ€™t be here right now. What was once lifeโ€ฆ should have met with death. Yet, here I am, breathing in the air around me. Full of life.

Well, maybe not full of life, I can’t really sayโ€ฆ but there is plenty of life left inside of me. Enough to keep me going each day it seems. — Even after the days should have stopped coming.

I donโ€™t know why Iโ€™m still here. Iโ€™m not sure what Iโ€™m missing. Iโ€™m not so important that it makes sense for me to continue breathing while others have stopped. What am I missing?

Iโ€™m just a lone writer. So why have I been spared? How temporary is it? What happens next?

Should I fear death around every corner? Iโ€™m not certain Iโ€™m capable of that. Iโ€™ve never been one to fear the inevitable. Death takes us all. Or perhaps, should I feel on edge? Paranoid, even? — Do I dare hope that there is a lot of life left in me? — I feel that maybe that is whatโ€™s to be feared here. — The loss of hopeโ€ฆ. If I should choose to let myself go to such a place.

I certainly wonโ€™t sit around and wait for the end, that much I know. Until it arrives, Iโ€™ll search to the ends of the Earth for the answersโ€ฆ. and then Iโ€™ll make the time to write them down for the world to read.

The life of the writer, whose life should have ended, but instead.. it began again. — If life is refusing to give up on meโ€ฆ then I will join with it in the fight against death. — & I wonโ€™t stop until Iโ€™ve found the answers.

Writing Challenge:

At birth, everyone has the date they will die tattooed on their arm. — You were supposed to die yesterday.
