Therefore, I decree, upon this day (I mean...November 1st), that I will refrain from internet usage unless deemed necessary for survival until January 1, 2017.

60 days of pure JOY and Contentment!!! YEAH!!

I look forward to this reprieve every year.

or sooner.....



(it is always hard to break away from the routine, but ALWAYS rewarding in the end...)

Ciao, Cheers, and See Ya Later,

The "F" Word and Being an Adult

I heard someone say
That the "F" word's OK
If adults want to say it,
That's Great!

"F" you, I'm smart
And "F" you, you're dumb
And "F" all the folks
That I hate.

"F" politicians
"F" all religions
And "F" all around
This huge globe.

"F" is for flaming
The fire of fear
Forever it fervently

"F" is the norm
It's become common place
To hear it, no one says
A thing.

Not even the children
React anymore
Cuz "F" words are used
When we sing.

Grandpa and Grandma
Say "F" all the time
They holler and yell
At each other.

It's perfectly fine
When we become grown,
Have children,
Become Dads and Mothers.

But WHOA...
Wait a minute....
A small tiny voice
Is heard among all of the "F's"

"Spider and snake bites
Are very small things
Their venom can cause
Pain and death."

"F" logic and grace
"F" pain and disgrace
"F" people who
Can't suck it up

With words that seem small
But hurt one and all
I don't want to EVER
Grow up!!!

(after hearing a comment from an adult about the "F" word being OK for adults to say.......REALLY?

Teacups Don't Have Tears

Teacups don't have tears.
Neither do stuffed animals, baby dolls, and toy race cars.
57 Chevy trucks don't.
Stars in the sky don't.
Trees don't.
Moments in time do not.
Roses don't.
Locks of hair from baby's first haircut do not.
Family pictures don't.
Old typewriters and old dial phones? Nope.
Grandma's reading glasses, Grandpa's pocket knives, and Uncle Lester's guitar do not.
Mom's wedding ring and dad's handkerchiefs don't cry.
The list is indefinite.

Things don't have tears.........people absolutely do.


{I was walking on my treadmill this morning and this title popped into my head....I can almost smell the words and memories of each thing written. Isn't that weird how that works?}

OH MY WORD, Micky O'Flabs

Don't usually post two things in one day....but....

Last year, I started a blog called "Micky O'Flabs, Love Letters from Fat"

It was basically correspondence between me and my fat. (not that I am THAT big, but fat is fat whether 1 pound of it or 100 pounds of it....true?)

I put that blog on "private" after a few write ups and only 8 posts when I got distracted by things such as life.

Anyway, I checked that thing today and there are over half a million hits on one of the posts. When you post on Blogger, it also goes to your Google thingy and I guess it was on there. How weird!

That is a high number for a simple blogger like me.

Anyway, I may bring that blog back. It is a Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde thing as I am typing to and from myself and I am not sure how long I can keep up a self dialogue. Talk about limited conversation. I also have to put myself in Fat's place and be FAT while I am writing which is contradictory to what I want to be or have in my life. It is also a big deal, but it is NO big deal. Does that make sense?

I'm not one of those folks that won't eat one grain of sugar because it might cause cancer in my big toe. I am one of those folks that don't like belly fat hanging over my too small britches.....YUK! Hate it actually.

Anyway, here is to the rebirth of Micky O'Flabs if I can find the time and creative energy to do it. Unfortunately, I am not in FLAB mode at this point in my life. That was LAST year's project. We will see.......


Hold Your Breath and Count to A Million

Today will be a:

Hold My Breath and Count to a Million


Sure don't want to walk around with a foot hanging out of my mouth...

An Icky Day

Do you ever have icky days?

Yesterday has left me with a 24 hour Elvis Presley lip curl today because it was just plain old icky.....GROSS!! Thinking about it gives me ick bumps all over my body.....ugh!!

Why was it an icky day?

I know this sounds really mean to some folks, but .....wait a minute, let me back up.

I have been out of high school for 32 years (give or take). Dang, that is a long time. I guess some folks still live in the successes of their high school years. Thankfully, I do not. Wouldn't that be sad to have the accomplishments of your high school life be the pinnacle of your existence? I know people that still live in the good old "glory" days of high school and it is sad. Anyway, a guy that I went to school with came into where I work yesterday and got assistance from another person that works with me. I heard him talking to my co worker and he asked her if she was "Hispanic" and she said, "No, I'm Mexican." This guy is creepy and a little off in the head so I had to explain to her after he left that he was a few bricks shy of a load in school and I guess he never found the store to buy any more since then. He noticed me sitting behind her and yelled out, "Are you Theresa?" I knew right then who it was........Philip......

He left her desk and plopped down at mine and started talking about people from high school that I barely remembered and he just would not leave. I was very nice and said about three times, "Well, it's been nice talking to you......" and it went right over his head and flew out the door because he kept sitting at my desk. Finally, another customer stood at my desk waiting for me to help them and Phil stood up.....THEN.....he said....

"Are you married?"

ICKY!! Gross!!!

I said:

"Yes.....till I die! I am as happy as a lark and so in love with the man that I married that a movie is being made about the deep love shared between us. We are writing books and touring the world to teach other people how to have perfect marriages." (secretly, we are not and neither of us believe in "soul mates"....see my soul mate post. We even argue about soul mates and we believe the same's weird....)

I know that sounds's kinda like the movie Dumb and Dumber....."so, you're telling me there is a chance...."

No, no I am not.....

That is all for now. Every day brings something new to the table, doesn't it?

Life is GOOD...even on Icky Days.

No Music in Hell...Song/Poem

Here I am.
Singing the poem that I wrote.
Did NOT intend to make it a song when I wrote it.
It just happened.
(See post below from Friday, October 14th....)

No Music in Hell
by Theresa Arnold

No music will chime
In a fiery ring
No harmony, melody, lyrics will sing 

No 4/4 or 6/8
Or waltz will appear
People won’t see and they surely won’t hear. 

No Mozart or Beethoven
Brahms’ lullabies
And Shubert and Bach and Tchaikovsky will die 

No bluegrass no country
No rock and no blues
And folk, funk, and polka will disappear too.  

The A’s thru the G’s
And all notes in between
Are banished forever, Hell’s eternity 

No one will whistle
Or hum soft and low
Hell is not Heaven where music will flow. 

They’ll be no relief
Or comforting croons
Hell’s clamor or whispers will be the new tunes 

When outro breath’s taken
And souls rise and fall
Will music continue or cease…that is all.

No Music in Hell

Have you ever thought about it?



I was reading the Screwtape Letters this morning and there was a reference from Screwtape to his nephew about music not being in Hell. It was a small line, and it wasn't even stated as boldly as to say, "there is NO music in Hell". It was a line that was written in passing and then the next subject was brought up.....

I backed the HECK up and said...."WHOA There!!!!" No music in Hell??

I never thought about it, but I guess there won't be (not even banjo, bagpipe, or accordion like the comics that I read from time to time reference).

I LOVE music. I can't imagine an eternity without it. This thought kinda blew my mind a bit. Some people are scared of the flames in Hell or the total isolation or the pain and torment that will be inflicted on the souls of the damned. I'm upset about the non existence of music. Who knows?

I think that THINKING is scary......Thinking about stuff scares the Hell out of me sometimes (pun intended as I don't normally use the word "Hell" in written and verbal words)

I wrote a sobering poem about it this is sad. I'm saving it for another time.

No music in Hell........sad:(


The flip side of that is there WILL be music eternal in Heaven. I know that there will be trumpets...there's just gotta be other stuff as well. MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC...for eternity.
I'm glad flip sides exist!!

Unusual, Not Scary at All

I found a picture the other day on Pintrest that hit me HARD!
Here it is:

This picture is a picture of the house that I am writing about in my book. I did not know that this picture existed, nor this house, until yesterday. OH MY WORD!! I have to find this actual house and go inside it and take pictures. I especially want to see what the third story room looks like.....


all for now.
(love how life works sometimes...)

A Million Blogs....and Counting

I have started and stopped numerous blogs in my years of blogging. I had one that I was going to do called:

Dear Ya'll

I found this in my file and thought it was funny....

Dear Ya'll,

Once there was a man that had really big feet. Whenever he stood in line, the nearest person in front of him would be about three feet away. He smelled like garlic and roses because that is what he grew out in his garden.

It was a good thing his feet were so BIG!

The End :)

**my common sense husband's response to this story:

"Your ending didn't make sense." I had to explain that it was a good thing this guy’s feet were so big so that people had to stand three feet away from him in lines. My common sense husband said, "What about the back of the guy. Did he have a three foot heel that stuck out too?"

Some people.....!!!!

..on Darkness and Light...

Infinite, infinite, all-consuming, overwhelming, infinite BLACK 


then slowly.....
somehow piercing the black
a pinprick.........a pinpoint....
one singular microscopic point  

of the most intense white light ever known 

and the physical terror

but with no physical force
that tiny pinprick of light 

and the LIGHT
all the more INTENSE
in its tininess 

pushing against the INFINITE 


that's usually when I wake up.....
Someone wrote me these words one day. This person does not believe in God. The bible addresses darkness and light in numerous verses. Answers are there for ALL of us. We have to be willing to look for them and accept the truth when it hits us....OUCH! (myself included as I have been hit with truth too many times to count)

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."John 8:12 (KJV)

"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness."
Genesis 1:3-4 (KJV)

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
Psalm 119:105 (KJV)

"And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light;
to go by day and night"
Exodus 13:21 (KJV)

"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!"
Matthew 6:22-23 (KJV)

"But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and
more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness:
they know not at what they stumble."
Proverbs 4:18-19 (KJV)

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16 (KJV)

"For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness, made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ."
2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)

"O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me;
let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles."
Psalm 43:3 (KJV)

"You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.  For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him."
1 Thessalonians 5:5-10 (NIV)

"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising."
Isaiah 60:1-3 (KJV)

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"
Psalm 27:1 (KJV)

"For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light."
Psalm 36:9 (KJV)

"But the path of the just is as the shining light,
that shineth more and more unto the perfect day."
Proverbs 4:18 (KJV)

"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of
God in the face of Jesus Christ."
2 Corinthians 4:6 (KJV)

"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light"
Ephesians 5:8 (KJV)

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light"
1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)

"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all."
1 John 1:5 (KJV)

I have finished all of the writings for my project that I have been working on since June of this year. I laid everything out this morning on the floor to begin the process of putting these things in some type of harmonious flowing order. There has to be a gentle flow to these written words....there HAS to be because flow is what it is all about. Isn't it?

I have also entered the editing phase as well. This kind of stuff is NOT fun for me. I would rather write, play, doodle, and laugh. I would rather not roll up my sleeves, plant my butt in a chair, and organize and perfect (to which there is no such thing as perfection, so why bother?) this project.

I have also wrestled with the idea of getting some illustrations to some or all of these writings. There is one person in particular that I think would add wonderful flavor to these words. All he can say is NO. Then, I will know the next direction that I need to go. Well, actually, I won't know. If he says no, will that mean that I need to find someone else or just publish what I have without any drawings?

Decisions, Decisions!!

There is also a woman that I met named Annette Bridges, who has a website and her specialty is helping women by being their cheerleader. When I spoke with her, she wanted to get started on helping women with publishing their writings and I would be her FIRST "writee"! Her site is:

Anyway, all of this will cost money. How much? I need to know a dollar amount and a time limit. Are there such things as cold hard facts and black and white info for publishing books because I need to know this stuff?

What a TRIP!!

Happy October to ya'll!

Freedom Rant from A Genius

I have the privilege of being friends with someone on Facebook that claims to know a lot about life. Maybe he does, especially when he is drunk. Here is one of his drunk write ups. He is extremely philosophical when he pens his thoughts in the wee hours of the morn. I can say that I would have never come up with such a colorful write up about celebrating freedom....perhaps if I were a drinkin' gal....:

Celebrating Freedom
by A Facebook Person's Pen

Celebrate your freedom today. Your freedom to never disobey gravity. Your freedom to never escape entropy. Your freedom to never lose cohesion and dematerialize. You freedom to never bilocate or travel without physical exertion. Your freedom to never communicate telepathically. Your freedom to never be able to stop eating, drinking, piss&*%, shi&$%^, and breathing. Your freedom to never see any spectrum of light outside of "visible" light. Your freedom to only hear up to 20,000Hz of sound. Your freedom to never know the future in full detail. Your freedom to never exist as a species unless you procreate. Your freedom to be trapped in your physical body for the duration of life. Your freedom to never be able to stop physically moving as long as you live. But most importantly, your freedom to realize the illusion of freedom.

I am a collector of unusual and cool sounding names, drunk rants and raves, and any word that someone may mumble under their breath or express in the passion of a moment. For some reason, I keep a cool head and jot things down to dwell on later. I have always been a delayed type girl.

I have the Freedom to be that way.

No Depth, well...Maybe A Little

I can't come up with ONE deep thought these days.

It bothers me. I used to live in a world of "depthual" perception.

Clichés and hackneyed phrases dominate my thinking and litter the pathway of creativity.
(that's a pretty good sentence.....)

I have had a letdown as I thought this week that my writing project I began in June was finished when I wrote, what I thought, was the LAST thing on my list.  I read through my long list of writings and realized that I had duplicated 9 things on my list and now I have to come up with NINE MORE original creations. To be frank about it, I am depleted. I really don't want to stop until it is done, but I also don't want to produce garbage either. I can only write so much about skunks and squirrels and the stars in the sky and the sunsets and trees!! 

I will trudge on. I have asked for help from the teacher that assigned me this project in the first place. My teacher's name is Jesus. After all, He was/is the greatest teacher that ever lived/lives. I have a huge list of things to write about after this project is done that He has assigned to me. I am confident that I will get inspiration and finish this because there are 6 more books to write after this one. I have already begun the 2nd project which will take me time because it involves talking to 100 different people. That doesn't just happen naturally either.

IT IS EXCITING, but wearing me out!! Did I mention that I am also wall papering the house and trying to finish up the interior so that I can start on the landscaping and furniture restorations that I have in my head? I also work a full time job and have a husband that likes to go do HAVE FUN! What is THAT? Thank goodness for him:)





Love LIFE!

My brain sometimes likes to nap away creativity.....

One day...

One day brings...

One day brings us...

One day brings us unimaginable...

One day brings us unimaginable possibilities...

One day brings us unimaginable possibilities squashed...

One day brings us unimaginable possibilities squashed forever...

if we don't pay attention to what is going on around us.

On the Eve Eve of 9/11

I remember where I was on 09/11/2001 when the first plane, second plane, third plane, and forth and final plane crashed on that day. I remember the silence in the skies for the next 3 days after it all happened and no planes flew above. I remember exactly how I felt. I remember how crowded churches were that Sunday and the Sundays following. I remember how beautiful the sunsets where and the clouds were enormous and the air was crisp and cool and the temperature was PERFECT. It was like it was some type of consolation gift for what we had just experienced here in America.

I wrote this poem in 2007.....

Remembering Those Who Protect and Serve 09/11/2007 

Let us not forget
Six years ago today
The feeling that we had
In rubble our freedom lay. 

Each day we live this life
In bliss and without fear
Today is all we have to live
Tomorrow may not appear.  

The sacrifice of many
We owe our gratitude
Their selfless acts of duty
Sometimes are misconstrued.  

Let’s stop and do remember
To thank our Lord above
Each breath we take
Each word we speak
Is bought with someone’s blood.
People, we need to stop the fussin' and meanness. It is BAD!
We should never have to write poems about remembering horrible things.

My Soft Place to Land and Soul Mates


I love to fantasize and create images of fake people with cool backgrounds and false facts of awesomeness....but, I totally do not believe in soul mates and "soft places to land". It all sounds good and endearing to use these terms to describe a LOVE of your life, but come on! Really? It makes for poetic recreational reading to me.

What I have experienced thus far in my life is that when people use these terms to describe their relationships, they usually end up getting divorced, separated, or killing each other. OH MY GOODNESS.....don't you just HATE that? I am not saying that ALL folks end up that way that chose to communicate their feelings for each other using these types of terms, but who can eat HONEY all day long without throwing up?

I hate that I don't have a gooshie side to me when I deal with reality. I LOVE that I have a gooshie mooshie side when dealing with fantasy. Isn't that cool? I think in a relationship, it should be based on "what you see is what you get". How does a person know what they are getting if they are referred to as a "soft place to land" "my everything" "my soul mate". If I was someone's soul mate, I would feel sorry for them. I would let them down daily in the perfection department. I certainly don't want someone in my life that refers to me as their soul mate either. EWWWW.......get a grip buddy! I don't want that kind of pressure put on me and don't you DARE do that to me.

My love letters would certainly be insipid to a lover.

Dear Lover,

I am glad that you work and cook supper for me. You are good to be around. You aren't my everything, but you come pretty close to being almost some of the things that I need in life. Let's go get some groceries together and sing some songs that come on the radio together and laugh at funny looking people together and sweat together in the Texas heat? This one thing I do know about you:
I love you.
You will have to take me at my word.

Is that so bad?

Dove Season in Texas

FLY little doves.....FLY!!

Today is September 1st and open season on dove in Texas.

I saw three dove in our driveway this morning and I told them to hang out there for the entire month of September if they didn't want to get shot.

I love animals....both as pets and to eat. I know that may sound mean, but it is true. I feed the little hummingbirds in our backyard every day. They are wearing me out and eating all of our sugar. I don't care. I will feed them until they fly away at the end of this month. They need their sugar water. I fix their meal with one hand, and eat a chicken leg with the other hand.

This is crazy stuff. Does that make me a hypocrite? No. I'm human and have to eat to live and meat is good. I'm gonna live to be 101 years old because I eat meat.

On the other hand, I take care and feed all the little animals in our forest. It is the best of both worlds.

So, FLY!!! Fly little doves and don't get shot. If for some reason you do, and if my husband happens to bring you home after he shoots you, he will wrap bacon around you, grill you, and you will supply us with nutrients so that we can take care of the other animals. It IS the circle of life.

Did You Know...

if you read the Dictionary through from A to Z, you have read every book ever written.


Does that sentence make sense?

Is that true?

Probably not. Someone out there will challenge that statement. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could make statements about stuff and no one would challenge what we said? I'm getting tired of people questioning every single word in the world that has ever been written and spoken.....BUT....

I do the same thing. I just can't take things at face value. I can't! I always want proof and truth.

Is that too much to ask?

May I please have a little more proof and truth and a little less speculations and observations?


That is all.

I am going to lunch to read the dictionary now.


truth is tooth with an "r"

Dog Alarm

This is one of my project poems that I have been working on. I have about 20 to go and then I'll be finished with phase 1 of my writing. I have an email that I send random ideas to and it is SO full! There is NO order and it contains good stuff, bad stuff, junk, treasures, and words galore! It is crazy to have a head that never shuts off. I wouldn't know any other way to live though and I am so glad that I have had, through my 50 years of living, the structure of God's word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It HAS helped me immensely. God's word tells me exactly how to live and what to do to have order. Do I always do it? NO. But when I take the time to sit down and study it and apply it to my life, DANG!! It really does work ya'll. It REALLY does. It's amazing how applicable it is to any and everyone's life in an eye opening way that can't be explained unless you go through it. I just know that it works and it is truth.
And now, a poem about my dog.
(told you my head never shuts down)
Dog Alarm

August 10th/A Day That Will Not Live in Infamy

Do you EVER use words in the wrong context?

Me too!

I started trying to teach myself how to play my dad's wonderful banjo on August 10th (my mom and dad's wedding anniversary....they would have been married 52 years if they had only stayed alive long enough!)

I was going to entitle this blog:

August 10th/A Day That Will Live in Infamy

Here is the definition of the word "infamy":

infamy: extremely bad reputation, public reproach, or strong condemnation as the result of a shameful, criminal, or outrageous act: a time that will live in infamy.

Actually, this COULD be correct depending on how good/bad I sound.

Anyway, August 10th is the day!!

Banjo Bound!

I cried when I got dad's banjo out of the closet and out of its case and onto my lap. First of all, it sounded HORRIBLE. Has not been tuned in literally YEARS! Also, the banjo that I got when he died was his Gibson RB 800 that he played until mom died in 2002. He played that banjo from 1970-2002. After mom died, he bought a Stelling Staghorn that was WAY TOO LOUD, I thought. He loved it. The Gibson is much BETTER even though the Stelling is monetarily worth more money. Money and good instruments sometimes don't walk hand in hand. My brother wanted and received the Stelling with no ill will from me at all.

Can I do it? I think the thing that scares me the most is that I think that I CAN!!

Fight Stupidity!!


Meaningless Meaningless....all is meaningless!

There is a time for everything under the sun!

I currently reside in THIS stage of life and I really don't like it at all.

The man that wrote Ecclesiastes did basically EVERYTHING a person can do in life.

Read it.

It will depress you!

This man did multiple life tasks and he still used the words that he used.

There is no end to living!!!

I think we just have to figure out the JOY of it!

Also, I don't want to go INSANE by planning things and not doing them. I think living in the planning stage of life causes insanity!! It is time to NOT go insane. It is time to think and DO! Figure out what is sucking the life out of living and RUN from it as fast as I/you can!!

Take time to THINK!!

Take time to LEARN!

Take time to LAUGH and LOVE!

Nothing else really matters that much....

Theme for the Day

Two days ago the theme for the day was:

Yesterday the theme was:

The theme for today seems to be:

I watched the clip of the firefighters saluting the dog as he/she was walked into the vets office and then carried out on a stretcher with a flag draped over him/her.

One would think that I am sad because my car has dents all over it now and has to be repaired, but I a more sad about the tree that fell on my car. That tree was probably almost 100 years old...maybe 70. It was alive and still thriving. The ground around it got saturated with rain and the dirt couldn't hold it up anymore and it just FELL!!! So much symbolism here with what happened to the tree and what happens in real live human life. I will ponder and write on that another day. The funny thing about it is that I did not realize that I was a tree hugger until that tree fell. Am I turning into a tree hugger? What the heck is that all about?

Today is cry baby Johnson day....and that is OK to do sometimes.

Liarrhea: having a constant urge to lie.

Me and my daughter text words back and forth to each other from time to time. My husband had to enter the game too and sent us:

Askhole: a person who constantly asks for your advice, but always does the opposite of what you tell them.

How witty and funny my family is!! I have been having deep concerns about the level of intelligence dropping in our society. Now I know that this is not true because of these wonderful words and definitions that my family has shared with me from the amazing Urban Dictionary.

I heard the other day that there is a new bible that is coming out with emojis to replace words. I assume that ♥ will replace the word "love". I dunno? Why is this type of stuff developing? Is it good? Is it bad? Does anyone ask if it is? Does anyone care if it isn't? Is it OK to stop using words and go back to only pictures like the cavemen use to use? Are we going backwards?


Why aren't people scrambling to learn new words and the definition of those words and using those to communicate instead of making up pictures for words?

Does this seem like the horse is getting behind the cart to anyone but me?

I guess there are probably a lot of askholes out in the world that could care less about literacy.

Again, I say....I dunno??

Driving to Work This Morning and a THOUGHT came to me:

It was pretty serious too.

What the heck was it, now that I am trying to type about it?

I think it was something about love and cakes.

OH YEAH......

If someone tells you that they love you and the only place that they have seen you is online....


1. They are full of crap! How can anyone "love you" when they have never even met you, spent time with you, smelled you, laughed with you, kissed you, EXPERIENCED you in REAL LIFE!

2. They obviously do NOT know what real love is if they are telling you that they love you online.
That is not REAL love.

3. You CAN love a person that you talk to online....the kind of love that a person has for mankind and animals, NOT the relationship type of love as this cannot be established online.

4. Cakes taste better with frosting, but the REAL ingredients that make up the cake (eggs, flour, sugar, baking soda/powder) are the TRUE makings of a cake, not the frosting. The same with "internet love". It's just frosting and fluffy words only. Don't get it confused with truth.

I think that is about all that I came up with. It only takes me about 15 minutes to drive to work so I don't have a lot of time to write bibles and stuff. I also thought about donkeys and potholes.

Have an AWESOME weekend and listen to some 80's pop rock today.....

A New Blog...Again...Daily Writing Prompts by T:)

I have started a new blog called "Daily Writing Prompts by T". All that I have to do is write one sentence a day. I think that I can keep up with that pace.

Coming up with a new idea each day shouldn't be too hard. I am finding that I tend to lean toward a dark and negative vibe when coming up with fresh ideas. I am not sure if I like that and I certainly did not realize that I would do that when coming up with a "fresh" idea.

Too much exposure to the internet and media I guess.

Anyway, it has been interesting thus far.

I can even type up one liners on my phone without too much trouble. I like the two handed typing best though. I have GOT to get away from the phone/online stuff and do more walking around in the woods or dark and use my imagination. Maybe I should hang out with my 7 year old nephew. He is FULL of wonderful ideas. He even messes with an ipad from time to time. How is imagination possible using an ipad??

Anyway, Daily Writing Prompts by T:) is on task for future flopdum or famedum.

Regardless of flop or fame, it is fun to do for now.
