Whimsical Wednesday # 195

Welcome back to Whimsical Wednesday!

The day for your googled giggle that gets you over the hump that is Wednesday and sliding down into the weekend.

so very true.

Monday Musings # 9

"There is no greater contrast than that between the miracle of our existence and the mundanity of having to experience it every day." TV chef and author Adam Liaw.

I've been watching season 8 of The Big Bang Theory and in one episode, shortly after Howard's mum has died, Howard and his wife Bernadette arrive at his mum's home where Stuart, the comic store owner, is now living. Stuart had been looking after Debbie since she injured herself. (an ankle I think)
Stuart tells them there has been a power failure since late last night and power should be back tomorrow morning. 
Howard races to the kitchen and flings open the freezer door, getting very emotional at all the food stored in there. "The very last food my mum ever cooked". 
He doesn't want it to all go to waste, so they decide to cook it all and have a dinner party, inviting Leonard and Penny, Raj and Emily, Sheldon and Amy to share in the bounty. 

I've lived through a power outage or two myself …

I've just seen an advertisement about the fast-tracking-from-America Season Three of The Blacklist.


Now, just how fast are we talking about? Hmmm? 

me too

Thursday Thoughts # 64

from Trust Your Eyes by Linwood Barclay
"I ran my palm over my forehead. A major storm front of a headache was moving in. A migraine monsoon."

from Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs
" Cat's don't care if you speak with your mouth full. A character trait I much admire."

Currently reading Strong Conviction by Trevor Scott.

Today's Thoughts:
I've got a blank page staring at me while I stare at it. Do pages actually stare? Or do they just sit there waiting to be written or drawn upon? We'll never really know.

I don't have thoughts to share. Nothing deep and meaningful anyway. I've had three or four days of knowing Thursday is coming and I need to write something, but I've come up empty.

I can tell you that a couple of days ago I saw a woman on TV showing off a tomato that grew in her yard, (I think, or maybe it came in a box of tomatoes she bought, I don't pay a lot of attention to TV), it was bright red and shaped exactly like a rubber duck…

the rest of the world? fuggeddaboudit

I hope there's nothing important on the news tonight, TV's off and I'm listening to Trisha Yearwood. 

I've got a 50 song playlist set to repeat. 

I have a new set of external speakers for my laptop and they make listening a movie theatre type experience. 

Heaven is in my lounge room!
