Kinda Friday

This is a weird week. There were elections for the mayor and a few proposals—it caused quite a stir. Then there was tickets released for the Eddie Izzard show. Oh! And remember how I said I got a project at work I knew how to do? Apparently not.  I feel like this week was a weird balance of kinda-bad luck and kinda-good luck making it into a kinda- interesting week.  Whatever, I have high hopes for the weekend.

Oh, and I got one idea and flew into a writer’s frenzy. O___O

Y’all got any cool stories?

–Here are some ideas-

The three boxes were in front of him. He set down his mask tentatively and reached for…

The calendar on the wall still said September with the large happy aardvark. Even though it was April she couldn’t bear to let it go.

The book fell down from the library shelves onto its spine and out fell the perfumed stationary.

Her hair fell in long cascading waves of sepia tones.

The paint washed over his skin. He wrinkled his nose at the smell as he watched the colors cover him.

The rocking chair went back and forth as it silently considered

Lime, sea, leap

Sunflowers

Well, what’s your posion?

Smile Wednesday

Things that made me happy today:
1. I wrote a nice story for class
Possible tittles:
My first week at Summer Camp
The Catfish
Something that sounds cool

erm, its a work in progress….

2.  I got a tough assignment at work and I actually know what to do
3. My grandmother helped me in creating a new recipe
4.  My outfit… don’t judge, but it’s fun for me to dress up a little

My reaction–

What are things you are proud you did today?

This is for you:

Oh! Oh! I finally spelled Wednessday Wednesday in the title right on the first try!

Hope the rest of your week is marvelous.
(There I used the m-word, you owe $5 because it is in fact still acceptable to use. You know who you are.)

Inspiration Friday with a side of Lasagna

I got to see a really awesome debate today. Yes, I know, my terrible secret comes out. I like debating, I love economics, and Star Trek is my comfort food (but for the telly). I guess this means I’m a nerd or something. Anyway: debate. The 1% is killing the American Dream. I don’t think that this topic was handled as well as it should have been. The two sides didn’t really address each other. It was still entertaining, but in the end I didn’t vote on the issue so much as I voted on the better debate team. Then after debate I went to a bakery and the gym. I like the gym just for the endorphins I get afterwards. And of course, no day is complete without some chaotic element which brings me to diner. In an attempt to feed my Italian cravings I made lasagna. Or I would have if I had not broken the lasagna pan, a mason jar, and spilled red punch in the process. Yes, that is exactly what it would like if I horrifically murdered Mr. Body (because the lead pipe is so mainstream). Thank you Flying Spaghetti Monster God for reaching out your noodly appendage to grant my humble small slushy town with an Olive Garden. Seriously, this is news.

I have to write a story for my Creative Writing class due on Tuesday, and I am freaking out. I think I may have to resort to real life, because let’s face it: Reality exists merely to contradict it’s self on a daily basis by spontaneously erupting into bursts of randomly weird things.

If you have any ideas, feel free to share. As always, you can email me at: toolbox.submissions@gmail.com

The camel considered, albeit briefly, the ramifications of his latest plot. A week in the stables for scaring the crap out of American tourists? Worth it.

The earth is slow but the buffalo is patient.

April 1st came on Saturday this year, and Audrey noticed it was oddly quiet. She even checked her calendar twice.

That awkward moment when the guest in hotel room 304 calls down to the front desk asking about special movie channels.

#51: Discovering a new country.

“Jim, you’re missing the point. You don’t wear a bathing suit to pool. You were jeans and I give you a Pool Cue. Just- just- go take off those swim trunks. Did you really think the bar had a pool in the back?”

Anna Marrie Lynn’s piggy bank would not break, and all the coins she’d saved rattled inside while she tried to break it.

The camera obscura flips images, turns things around, and that was the crux of the issue. It’s hard enough when things are in black and white.

“No, I am not making this up. Absolutely the lasagna pan dropped itself.”

Castiel is adorable

No, seriously guys. If you have anything to share to kick me in to writing my story I’d be much obliged. I have three half ideas right now but nothing fleshed out. Oy vey. I’ll be in the corner muttering half ideas and doing needle point because I can. 

Write on!

See y’all soon.

Hug Wednesday

Well, it’s smile Wednesday and according to my homework I’m supposed to write about a time that I was made a fool of. Ergo: an event everyone thought was freakin’ hilarious at my expense. Like say, the time I broke my foot in *acting* class. Or the time I gave my Solar System presentation the day that Pluto was no longer a planet and I hadn’t changed my presentation. Or the time I flew half way across the country just to find out that I went to the wrong political conference. Okay, so that last one wasn’t so bad really…it was kind of fun. I dunno about you, but after those types of events I need a hug.

So the theme for this Wednessday? Hugs! Go hug someone today!

Also: I’m in a Curious George mood.

 

Smile Wednesday!

I went to the zoo on Saturday, to celebrate our Polar Bear’s birthday. Louie is about eight, and his girlfriend, Apuna I think, doesn’t have age. Mostly it was her birthday, but once Louie found out their was seal blubber in the snow cake he took over. There were s’mores and party favors. I took pictures of the bears but they are not clear unless you know what to look for.

But take a look at this. It’s so cold here that I can blow bubbles, watch them freeze, and poke a hole without popping it.

We did it for science!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week, and off to an excellent start. I’m in a writing class now where every one agrees that Wishbone is the greatest show ever.

Now go! Make the most of this week! Smile! This snake is rooting for you!

He does it just to impress you

Inspiration Friday

I am just exhausted from this week. I have great classes but they are all jam-packed together into one squishy mess of chaos and campus-running-around-ness. I reserve the right to make up words, yes.  Below are writing/art/drawing/painting prompts. Please feel free to add your own ideas into the comment section. Don’t forget there is still a contest  going on.

enjoy

Dear Mr. Stevenson,

We have received your application today, and have taken careful note of all your special talents abilities. Despite your overwhelming lack of qualifications, we have already hired someone else who is not crazy. Thank you for your inquiry.

She played with the red gold band on her finger to keep her nerves in check.

The coloring book she gave her son had blank pages originally. However, each day a new page was filled with increasingly weird images.

It was not unusual to see the Man in the Moon hanging in the night sky. Tonight though, he had brought his wife.

Curl, cave, convex, custom

The burns on his arms were healing, even as the scars changed.

The day the sun went Nova, that’s when I knew.

The comet came only once every fifty years. Each time it seemed to glow a little dimmer. After all this time, the comet still did not want to give up searching for her.  She had promised.

I would not mind if you whispered those words again.

The cat pawed at the notebook trying to get it open.
