Sharpening my intellect...

...also known as playing a Yahoo game for thirteen hours yesterday.

I downloaded Bookworm Adventures onto my laptop Saturday. And I received a couple of free trial turns. But that was enough. I played for a couple of hours Saturday. And then I really got into it Sunday.
I beat the game.
Yeah. That's right. I BEAT THE GAME!!!

It's the cute little worm from Bookworm on Yahoo. And he's on an adventure to save some literary chickie. And he has to battle all sorts of mythical creatures. With WORDS.

The bigger the word, the more powerful the blow the little worm delivers.
I kicked ass.
That's all I'm saying.

And kudos to the chickens. Especially oldest chicken who could look at sixteen tiles and think up nine letter words.
I'm so proud.

As for the vacation, I got sick again (wheezing, coughing crap this time) Wednesday.
I sleep with earplugs. I have a hard time shutting down at night. I'm like the dude in daredevil.
Gotta have the silence.
So I pop the earplugs in and doze off.
I wake myself at four in the morning with a pounding heart because I think I hear someone talking.
I was hearing myself wheezing because the earplugs trapped the horrible sound in my head.
Oh yeah. That was extremely special.
So I'm taking OTC meds. Hoping to halt that crap. And I'm back to work today. And the piles...they are huge. pfffffftttttt

UPDATE: Holy crap. Can't believe I forgot to put this in!!!
Baby Chicken is at a Scholastic Meet today. *grins* For English, of course.
Have a good one!!!

Choice, not chance, determines destiny

I pass this lovely piece of wisdom on a church sign everyday to and from work. And every time, I reflect on what it means. I accept it. Hell, I embrace it.
Gone are the days when someone can shrug their shoulders, mumble "my bad", and that's the end of it.
It's called "accountability." Can you say that? Suuuuuuuuuuure you can.
If you make a choice, own it. Let go of the whole "world is out to get me" scenario and embrace the fact that you have a choice. FREE WILL.
I love free will. *grins*

Things can happen to you. Sure. And they will. But what you do with it is up to you. It's easy to wander around and pretty much let the world bend you over. But it takes intelligence and a backbone to make decisions and stick with them.
So make the choice. Own the decision. And watch your destiny unfold.

Yesterday was my birthday...

...and it sucked.

It had some highlights. (Thanks Amber, Shaun, and chickens.)

But all in all, I could have bypassed the entire shitty day. Plans fell through. I was trapped in a meeting. You know those commercials where the office people are out in the jungle? Yeah. Something like that.
My God. I was wishing for a sharp object to poke my jugular with.

So I have vacation for the rest of the week. Eh. Not quite feeling the wonderfulness of it yet, though I DID sleep in this morning. But I suppose I'll do some writing. Bip around and enjoy the time to myself.
Still feels the same.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Afraid so.
Don't expect any new posts next week, my lovelies. I'm going on vacation. Won't be logging onto the computer at all next week. So take heart. Go back and read some old snarkiness.
It'll be like I never left.

Mind shift

This is your brain:
Job. Dishes. Laundry. Kids. Cleaning. Not enough time. Put gas in the car. Tick tock. Pets need food/water. Get the kids off to school. Hurry hurry hurry.

This is your brain on Stephen King:
The night was silent. The foliage hovered overhead and drowned out all attempts from the moon. The path was still. So still. And then you hear it. The faint hissing of warning. Your heartbeat speeds up as you look around in panic. The vines speak to you. Run, they whisper. You are not welcome here.
Your legs like leaden weights when you see the red eyes ahead. And then the ominous glint of moon on long teeth that promise your last seconds of life.
Seriously. *grins*
I love Stephen King. He is the Master Storyteller. I read Lisey's Story, and it was okay. But I'm reading Duma Key right now, and I like it so much better. It's scaring the hell out of me, but we shall bypass that for the pure quality of terror it inspires.
I enjoy anyone who can bypass my first defenses and clamp my psyche in greedy jaws of literature. Stephen King digs deep. I'll have nightmares, I'm sure. But the story. Damn it all. The story is brilliant. It rings true. And he has the perfect balance of dialogue and description.
He also kills off main characters that I thoroughly enjoy. I stumble over that sometimes. But it also rings true with me. The ability to scare the shit out of me, make me laugh, and make me cry is potent.
I'm almost done with Duma Key. And I recommend it if you're a Stephen King fan. Or not. Because he can make you see the dark recesses of his mind.
I wonder how HE sleeps at night.

The Uber Talented Baby Chicken

I found this the other day and read it. It was laying on top of Baby Chicken's stuff. I asked her if she copied it down from somewhere. No, she assured me. She was simply bored.
I was amazed.

Together we are unique. Apart we are not far.
I see a bright light around me. I stumble to reach the end.
I trip over things. Things not visible to the eye. I trip over my heart and almost die of fright.
I hustle to get back tight into place, when the space is to small for anything.
It takes forever, but I finally make it. I am now back where I belong and safe into place.

Isn't that amazing???
