Size Doesn’t Matter. It’s How You Foolishness that Counts.


Today’s Music: Har Mar Superstar – Lady You Shot Me
Days Til Spring: 13!!!
And if you can, please help out Merbear.===========================>>>

As I write this, I’m hearing that today will be a delightful, sunny, pre-spring day with temps in the low to mid forties. The hope that the weatherman is right is what’s keeping me going. Along, of course, with blogs! Here’s some of what I’ve read…
Trent Lewin had some strong words about Manliness. Quornstar talked about Body Image, and Jots From a Small Apartment had a beautiful painting to go with a Difficult Question.

Thanks to them, and everyone else, for all the great reading. Seriously, I could have listed a few dozen posts above and not even scratched the surface.

Oh, and American Injustica honored me with a Liebster Award! Nothing better than a nice steamed Liebster! Or something. Anyway, she has a great site, and I love her Ink photos right along with her writing. Hope you check her out!

No...no, I think I prefer vanilla. Maybe. Hold on...

Last time, many of you checked out the poll, wherein we asked to take a look inside the churning maelstrom of your minds by asking you to finish the phrase I think…, and the view was spectacular! Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments are reconsidered in italics.)

Congratulations to Addie for this weeks winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular were therefore I am confused and I’ll have the chicken…. So congrats to all of you who can cogitate while you masticate!
(Whoohoo! I’ve been waiting forever to use that phrase!!!)

Oh, this old thing? Just some thing I poured on...

Oh, this old thing? Just some thing I poured on…


This week, with Spring less than two weeks away, we turn to the biggest thing on everyones minds: Bikini Season! So we’re asking, how will you get ready for this important time period? Answer often, but answer soon, because this one ends Tuesday, 11 March, 2359 EDT (Daylight Savings starts Sunday). Try and keep yourself to three Other answers if you do write-ins, and if you do leave an Other, add a way to recognize you at the end, and I’ll link back to you next week.

And to finish up, I thought I’d go with some incredible(y stupid) warm weather stunts.
First, I used this a long time ago and had forgotten it, but Dianne Gray reminded me about it on Tuesday’s post.

And this one I was probably introduced to by Frank

Have a great week everyone. See y’all around the sphere!

  7. The day before I was set to head back to Toronto after 6 weeks in Vegas, watching the local evening news, the anchors were bantering back and forth. “Only 26 days until Spring arrives!”; “Can’t wait! It’s been a loooong winter!” and so on, and so forth.
    My husband and I looked at each other and simultaneously said, OH F&*K OFF! Like you people know anything about winter. Seriously. 24 hours in the North East and they’d be crying like babies.
    That said… how many days til Spring? I’m so over it. (Says the woman who has spent all of 6 days back in the northeast this winter…)
