April Fool’s Day is Tomorrow…

…So you probably won’t see me. I have long wondered exactly why I hate April Fool’s Day so much. Is it just ’cause I think it’s dumb? And just now, I realized:

1) I often don’t understand when folks are teasing me/joking.
2) I can’t take a joke. (Really. It’s bad.)
3) I tend to take things seriously…

OH. Right. That’s why I’d take the day off and hide in my room if I could. Oh well. At least I know that Google does a yearly prank. That much I’m prepared for.

Message to my niece is process: You are not allowed to be born tomorrow. Okay?!?

I should start a club that has a “serious” party on April 1 each year. Something with silly initials. Suggestions? Declining April Fool’s Today (D.A.F.T.)?

Haiku Week: Saturday

It is difficult
to write a haiku a day
I have discovered

Haiku Week: Friday

This just in:

A film angers me so much
I tell everyone

Okay. It wasn’t all of Red Riding Hood that pissed me off. But…really? They should have just made a film out of Scarlet Moon. RRH included a stereotype of a character that did something that angered me so much I almost saw red for a minute. But, hey, at least Michael Shanks got some work. (No, he didn’t play the angering character. I was just happy to see him, even if they didn’t utilize his acting skills very much.) Growl.

Haiku Week: Thursday

Today’s haiku asks a question:

Have you ever felt
that in our swift rush forward
there’s something we’ve lost?

Haiku Week: Wednesday

It’s Wednesday, but…

An Apology

No haiku today.
Sorry. I got writer’s block.
My cat said he’d help.

By Frisbee:

This laundry is warm.
Do not move my fuzzy thing!
Fear my tooth of wrath.

(Um…thanks for the help there, Fris.)

Haiku Week: Tuesday

Today’s haiku is based on true events. Truefax.


So, I’m the sane one?
Honestly, that’s what she said.
Please make note of it.

Bonus Haiku:

Mood Lifter

Cider with dinner
“Miss, may I see your I.D.?”
And my husband laughed.

Haiku Week: Monday

Today’s haiku is a bit…depressing. Sorry.


Clutter and chaos
all manner of disorder
…going back to bed

Haiku Week: Sunday

New Week. New Theme. That’s right. It’s haiku week. (at least) one haiku will appear each day this week. Feel free to join in the fun and comment in the form of a haiku. (I’m not guaranteeing topic…or that the haikus will be good, but there will be at least one each day.)

See? Occasionally I remember that I’ve chosen to be creative this year. So to start off with, here is my random haiku of the day:


Supermoon glows bright
large, behind dark angry clouds
at least…so I hear

Bonus Haiku:


pink striped fuzzy socks
comforting on a cold night
outside the world howls

Photo Week: Saturday

Happy Saturday! I hope that you’ve enjoyed photo week. Stay tuned tomorrow for a whole new themed week.

And now, let us finish as we’ve begun…with cats! As you can see…Samwise and Frisbee don’t like each other at all. Nope. Not even a little bit. *giggle*

Anyone else feel like a nap now?

Photo Week: Friday

This is from our last trip to Kauai. We found this sign when we were (as it suggests) looking for Sea Glass. The sea glass hunting was fun…but I really like the sign, too. (and yes, as I understand it, opala means “garbage.”)
