This time of year, while being my favorite season (Fall), drives me crazy. Having the sun set before 5-5:30 PM in the evening sets my internal clock all kinds of out of whack. With the countdown to Thanksgiving here in the states at a little over a week and a half left, I’ve been searching through recipes by the dozens – looking for something unique to try this year. It’s a little thing my friends and I do each year, have a little Turkey Day cook off. This year – I intend to win. 🙂
It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done one of Berry SIngh’s Monday Memes and for this week she has done a pretty easy one. The task – should we choose to complete it – was to complete a series of “I” statements with whatever came to mind first. You can see Berry’s post here, along with a link to a text version of the statements for easy completion.
As long as we have memories, yesterday remains.
As long as we have hope, tomorrow waits.
As long as we have love, today is beautiful.
I’ll keep you safe, as safe as I can
When all the elements around us have other plans
I pray we don’t break in unsteady hands
I swear if you call I will come so quick,
I am at your command
As long as I live
As long as I’m breathing
You will be safe
As long as we’re dreaming
Just close your eyes
Everything’s gonna be just fine
You can peek on the other side…
It’s that time again! Time for wizards, princesses, rogues, and all kinds of fantastical types to gather and feed the ever growing gacha tidal wave at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The FGC – as it is dubbed (and much easier to type!) – opened February 11th and runs through March 15th.
This week for her Monday Meme Berry wrote about her blogging milestones. Since my blog and my posting regularly is new in comparison – sort of a toddler to Berry’s adult – I decided that I probably wouldn’t have too much to say about milestones quite yet. So I am doing last week’s challenge this week and because I am doing so on a Monday, the procrastinator in me somehow feels as if I am on time. Yes, I know. My logic is skewed – welcome to my world.
So last week for her Monday Meme, Berry proposed making motivational posters for Second Life. You know the ones. They were up ALL over the place – doctor’s offices, schools, company lobbies… I think I may have even seen one in a public restroom at one time. You can see her post about the topic here. She even linked it to a nifty website that lets you turn you images into a poster.
I think my poster is a little on the hokey side…
Recently, Strawberry Singh started up her Monday Memes again and this week’s challenge? Yearbook photos! Well more specifically, a yearbook smile challenge. (You can see her post here.) Basically, the idea is to take a picture of your av smiling – like you would see in a school yearbook. So I grabbed my friend Colby, whom I’ve known since we were in high school, and snapped a couple of pics.
Since the movie Goonies played a big part in our pop cultural education, I decided to borrow our “senior quotes” from there. In reality, I think mine said something about getting all the way through high school and still not knowing how to get to Sesame Street. 😀
