Idle Thoughts

So, this “type in a word and see what tags pop up for you” thing that I reblogged from Jeeno2 is now my favorite thing on tumblr because I haven’t stopped laughing at myself over it. It honestly gave me a ridiculously accurate snapshot of MY ENTIRE TUMBLR HISTORY—

random comments regarding my kids, obsession with weather, acknowledgement that I’m too freaking old to even be here, fanfic, Starks, and specifically Catelyn Stark!! 

To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:

thejadedkiwano:

Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

you

also

what

when

why

how

look

because

never

spreading self-esteem because sometimes it’s important to remember you are cool

Go- once you get this list 5 things you like about yourself and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers. THERE IS NO WAY OUT AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY “NOTHING” so spread the self-esteem

So, I have now been tagged  by jadeddiva, liebeliebes, and metal-and-dust, so I guess I should do this thing. :)

1. I am good at not taking myself too seriously.

2. Children and animals tend to like me.

3. I am a very good swimmer.

4. I genuinely love to encourage people, and I think I’m pretty good at it.

5. I get as over-the-top excited about things in my forties as I did when I was four. 

Not tagging anyone specifically, but inviting any of my followers to play! :)

I was not counting on precisely HOW BAD work would be this week with two of  my partners on vacation. Much longer hours at the office, bringing work home every night, and then being too exhausted to string a coherent sentence together means I likely won’t write a bit of fic all week !! :(

Then this weekend, I get to chaperone a bunch of 12 and 13 year olds on a school trip to Chicago, so yeah …no writing this weekend, either.

Tumblr—a place where people consistently tell me I really need to watch the television show about a series of books I love a lot.

Tumblr—a place where people consistently post terrible things about this show, pretty much killing any desire I might have to see it.

Truly one of the most amazing ladies I’ve ever known—my beautiful mother! I love her a lot (even if she DIDN’T give me her amazing long legs, sentencing me to be shorter than she is even when I’m wearing heels XD!!)

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it! I’m ready to sing some wonderful music in church this morning and then enjoy a BEAUTIFUL spring day with family!
