Regular readers (I hope I still have some) may have noticed my sporadic posting lately. In my defense, I have no defense. I feel there is no point in offering a bunch of reasons or excuses (you may discuss amongst yourselves the philosophical difference between the two) (and here is a Freudian typo I would like explained: I put “philosophicalm” instead of “philosophical”).
Ooh, lost track of that sentence. But here’s a weird thing: as soon as I hit Return, the previous paragraph went light grey, as if it wasn’t really there. Is this a comment on the ephemeral nature of blogging and life in general? Again, discuss amongst yourselves.
Another return, another grey paragraph. I am not loving this, WordPress.
I thought I would throw in a picture of Bonita and Bonaparte just to dress up the post. I seem to have gotten distracted by the grey paragraphs and lost track of where I was going with this post. I guess I just wanted to post something, anything.
As always, I will try for a better post next time, and I thank you for tuning in.
Every Monday is another chance to have a fabulous, productive week. And every Monday evening I feel Just Too Tired To Do Anything. I don’t even know if I can manage a Monstrous Monday Post.
Oh crap now I am having trouble with this WordPress editor. I couldn’t get the cursor to the left to start a new paragraph; it wanted to stay center. Now I am two to three lines below the picture and afraid to try to erase the space. And why does autocorrect only want to correct some of my typos? These are the questions that haunt me on Monstrous Monday.
Now the bastard won’t let me add another picture! What the hell?
Regarding the caption above, in The Tingler (yes, autocorrect, Tingler, not Tingles. Sheesh!), directed by William Castle and starring Vincent Price, only screaming could save you from the terrifying Tingler. I am not sure screaming out my frustration would have a similar effect, although I know some find such behavior helpful.
I close with a ghoul I downloaded some years ago but rarely share. I confess my day was not as bad as some. However, I found it tiring. But at least I managed a 200 (or so) word blog post. Happy Monday, everyone.
Hello, and welcome to another edition of Monstrous Monday. I’m wondering if it would overfill my Media Library to prowl the internet for some new beasts or creepy crawlies. Let’s find out.
One of my Facebook monster groups has Mummy Mondays. We see a lot of Boris Karloff, although there have been other mummies, most notably Christopher Lee.
I always wonder if you couldn’t just grab an end of the bandage and unwrap him. It would be worth a try, anyways.
Well, that’s that. I just tried to save another photo to this device, and my device told me I had insufficient memory. I’m sure there is a better way to do this, but I do not know it.
Oh dear, I am so dreadfully tired and not the least bit adept at this WordPress editor. There are now two big spaces waiting for me to insert an image. Will they leave big blank spaces when I hit Publish? I think I will hit Publish and see. I am beginning to feel a bit monstrous myself. Happy Monday, everyone.
I do not know why this stupid Block Editor will not center my caption. It is very annoying, and detrimental to my self esteem to reflect that I cannot figure these things out. Additionally, I am REALLY ready to return to ten fingered typing.
And now I am. I moved to my seldom-used laptop, carefully poised on my dining room table. It must, it must continue to work while I am on unemployment, because my login and password are saved to the site where I put in for my weekly benefits. Of course there are workarounds if I lose them or the laptop dies, but I am so unmotivated to follow them. Enough of my computer woes. I was about to make a Throwback Thursday Post, hence, a picture from December 2016. The leggings are still intact, but I have completely worn out the awesome slippers.
It is a tradition for Steven to get me slippers for Christmas. I always need them, and he picks such good ones. It is hardly a throwback to show the ones he got me last year.
Recently seen in this space; recently heard in my house.
Incidentally, once on the laptop I switched to Classic Editor, and fixed the first illustration and caption. Now my opening paragraph does not make any sense, but I will let it stand. It will make a kind of a Non-Sequitur Thursday out of it. In fact, today is kind of a non-sequitur for me, because I was thinking, “Ooh, a Throwback Thursday would be nice, but maybe I can have a Way Back Wednesday.” Then I said, “Idiot, it IS Thursday!” I should stop calling myself an idiot. It is not very nice of me.
You see, it isn’t nice to call people idiots.
Now we’re really mixing things up: Friday? Tuesday? I don’t know what day it is! And this post is getting sillier and sillier. But why not? There are worse things to be.
Speaking of silly…
Here is one more Throwback picture, the Reindeer Run 5K in Little Falls, NY, from December 2017. I am the silly one in the middle. The Moose made a reappearance at the Turkey Trot 5K recently. I fear there will be no Reindeer Run this year. Perhaps I could do my own personal run. I have a reindeer poncho, and I can use Map My Run on my phone to make sure I go for 5K. I’ll be sure to make a blog post about it, with selfies.
In the meantime, I see I am over 400 words. That is a lot for a foolish post. No matter. I shall hit Publish and look forward to Lame Post Friday. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
Crap! WordPress picked today to impose its new editor on me, and I have no idea how to share a photo. I purposely took a photo for that title! Curse you, WordPress!
After great effort, I find out I can add a photo I took earlier of a glass of wine I poured myself. Of particular note is the wine stopper, which I purchased yesterday at Pumpkin Junction in Sauquoit. I wished I had a Halloween bottle to put on it, such as Vampire Pinot Noir or Werewolf Merlot. However, I thought the scary picture of the convict was good enough.
I just shared this picture yesterday but thought it fit with the Bare Bones theme of the post. Readers of yesterday’s post know it was another purchase from Pumpkin Junction.
I wanted to add one more skeleton picture.
OK, here is my story of today’s post. I invented the title first, meaning to share the picture I took, to show off the skull stopper and point out that, yes, I am once again drinking wine. Then I get confronted with this new editor, which I have been studiously and successfully avoiding thus far. So I have coped as best I can at the time.
The beauty part is that it is Non-Sequitur Thursday, so not making sense in fact makes sense. I will strive to make my peace with this editor. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
