Brain Dead Randomness

If its Monday, I’ll be the one with the nervous ticks and glazed eyes.  For the last 12 years, Monday is Meeting Night.  Council meetings, my job is to take notes…when I’m not doodling in the margins.   As soon as I’m done with this job I’m not even going to balance my own checkbook.  That’s another good reason to reconcile with Pap, I can make him balance the checkbook.

I feel a need to have a talk with the Pixar writers.  Princess and I went to see Shrek The Third a few weeks ago and I couldn’t help noticing that Shrek and Fiona’s offspring are ogres.  “Well of course they are!”  You may be saying, but wait!  Genetically speaking, Fiona is half human and half frog, turned ogre by magic.  Technically those kids should look half ogre, one fourth human and one fourth frog.  They need to get it right.

Its summer so of course every youth group in town is having a car wash.  Why is it that these groups only send their bikini clad girls out to the street with the placards?  Where are the muscle bound young men with placards to lure in the women?  We ladies have dirty cars and cash…come on. 

Now that I’ve completely mutilated my reputation as a serious writer and rational woman, I’ll go to my meeting.  Pay no attention to the new look here in my neighborhood – it probably won’t last any longer than the last one.  As soon as I leave this job I’m going to learn HTML or CSS or whatever it is that lets me design these things myself.

    I like the new look. The problem is that the ogre genes are dominant.

    I like it when you take your serious hat off for a moment!

    Fiona is half frog? Now how did I miss that?

    Dr. John – Darn that shrek and his bad genetics!

    Kat – How nice to see you! Hanging in, still fighting.

    Mr. Fab – Its fun to see people out of character isn’t it?

    Stacy – Yes! Her father was really a frog made human by Charmings mother. Where you been girl?

    Dr. John stole my comment! Don’t you think a pastor would know better then to behave like that — retured or not?

    Who can remember the car wash scene in Cool Hand Luke???, now that takes some beating.

    Quilly – You got here quick to outwit Dr. John.

    Dave – There’s a car wash scene in Cool Hand Luke? I can only remember the egg scene….ugh.

    Yea Kat….where are all those young guys??? Do you suppose they are out looking for an older woman???? LOL

    Catch – Definately discrimination. Like sex doesn’t sell to us too. Jeesh, I we claim we have equality.

  • 11. Nessa  |  June 19, 2007 at 11:35 pm

    One of the great things about summer is looking at the young guys with no shirts on.

    I am sorry your eyes blur and your brain goes numb – that kind of meeting would do the same to me. And who knew about the offspring of Shreck? See – even when you let off steam, we learn something!

    Jeez Kat, I was thinking the same thing about fiona too.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
