I'm fresh out of ideas, folks. So, if anyone has a specific topic they'd enjoy to hear me expound on, feel free to use the comments. If I get more than one suggestion, then I'll get to them in order in coming days.

Don't ask for too much, okay? Nothing particularly difficult or outside my knowledge base (i.e. I have a degree in Journalism and I'm a mom, so no physics or math type things LOL). Also keep in mind that my two brain cells have to work overtime just to come up with the daily drivel here, mmmkay? Thanx.
I'm still reading my Smutty McSmutterson book. And, I read a passage last night that was far more disturbing and outlandish than the Captain Wood part.

I'm the type of person who will never walk away from a book I've started - no matter how dumb, or impossible, or confusing or whatever it turns out to be. I feel it's a personal failure to NOT finish that book. I mean, what kind of lazy mofo can't make themselves read another (in my case right now) 200 pages? Not me, that's who.

But, on the other hand, I have a good memory and the likelihood of me picking up another book by this author are slim to none. However, this book was a freebie - so I can make the allowance to finish it and be done with it. I can even pass it on when my task is complete. Anyone want to read smut?
I also was tagged by Wyld for a meme that's a creative writing project. That one will take me a day or two. I've got it saved for my attention in a bit.

Creative writing (fiction) has never been my strong suit, namely because I am trained as a Journalist (impartial, unbiased and objective - or at least, SHOULD be, even though the media today doesn't resemble any education I received).

Actually, my strongest skill in Journalism was/is copy (ad) writing, which if you're a smart consumer, you recognize as glorified fiction, right? So, maybe I CAN do this tag. I will try.


  1. I used to feel that I had to finish a book.
    But really, why?

    Life's too short and there are too many other books waiting.

    There's a few I never finished. Of course, I've never given them away either..... that would be too final. :-)

  2. Hmmm... topics...

    Your reviews of all the recreational drugs you've taken.

    ummm... OK, I don't have a lot of ideas either, but at least I got on out there. I was trying to think of something shocking to put out here, but I was drawing a blank for some reason.

  3. Ideas?

    First love.
    First pet.
    pool or ocean?

    OK, now. Perhaps you can warm up your creative writing skillz with a little Wordsmiths story? Yes?

  4. krw - I'm the same way with movies. I can't leave it "unfinished". I'm a dork... you knew that, already.

    Ron - it's almost finished.

    Tiff - I'll pass on Wordsmiths THIS time. The other ideas will go in my list. Thanks!

  5. What were you like throughout high school?

    I did a run through the 80's... yah, that was fun.

  6. I've never thought of it before, but I need to hook you up with the Grasshopper/Mama Buzzardbilly reading express. Those two go through books like I go through magazines. Me? Not so much. I used to buy paperbacks by the big brown grocery bag full. After grad school, my eyes are still a bit sore. KWIM?

    Topics. Hmmm. Lemme think.

    First time you ever mooned someone?
    Freakiest kid you ever went to school with?
    Stupidest person you ever met?
    Who were your heroes growing up?
    How goes teh potty training?

  7. I have no problem putting down a book that I really don't like. I have so many books that I want to read, it's really not hard to justify spending time on those, instead. I usually make myself read at least half of it to make sure it stinks, though.

    I had no idea you have a degree in journalism! That's something I considered majoring in, way back when. :)

    Okay, what can you write about... hmmmmmmmm....

    What is the one thing about you that nobody would guess? Like, you're secretly a champion pool player or something... something that not many people know about you.

  8. I can't wait. I am on pins and needles.
