Turns out Duct Tape doesn’t work on everything, sometimes you need to use a cast iron bunny to weigh things down. My phone wasn’t charging again and it wouldn’t do a thing unless it was taped and weighted down with Mr. Bun Bun here. It didn’t last long but I’m grateful that July is the end of the phone contract … time to get a new phone.
Duct tape is also pretty ineffective on emotional stuff. It’s been a tough week and emotionally I’ve been kinda raw. I’m working on it. I’m grateful for an opportunity to process some of the life junk.
Sometimes you have to resort to making cookies. Even if you can’t eat them, there is something satisfying about the smell of warm cookies. It can be enough when duct tape just won’t work. These went a really long way; a few went to two friends who I was meeting for breakfast, a few to my buddy who just found out she needs surgery, and a couple to my neighbors. They were oatmeal raisin with walnuts and candied ginger.
This week I decided to keep the Six Sentence Story link open until Tuesday because last week several people missed the deadline. I dunno if that was wise or not… will reassess.
I also got to do a dry run of the live TToT chat for tomorrow. It’s at 10:30 Saturday a.m. and you can go grab the invite through Facebook… The more the merrier. That Wakefield Doctrine guy is setting it up… rumor has it the English may be represented, if ya know what I mean. Either way I got to meet Val tonight and she was just like she was supposed to be in person! She sounds like I expected and was nice and smiley like I expected … so if ya do nothing else come and meet Val! Hahhahhaha! Poor Val! Sorry, Val! (Not really,) I really did like meeting you!
