Day 16: NaBloPoMo — Inside the Blogger’s Studio w/ My Mom

I wanted to get this up yesterday, but unfortunately my dear old mother took her time getting me her answers. I went with the Inside the Actor’s Studio’s questions from an earlier Daily Post, because I was curious how she would answer.  Some surprised me.

Blogger’s Studio

. . . so here are her answers from today’s Daily Post.

  1. What is your favorite word?
    I don’t just have one, but for now I’ll go with Love.  Not to be cliche, but we really do need more of it and compassion too. 
  2. What is your least favorite word?
    N**ger. Growing up when I did it was used quite regularly and I hate it when I hear people use it. 
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
    I like to people watch and imagine what they’re saying or what their gestures mean and I’ll come up with a story based on that. 
  4. What turns you off?
  5. What is your favorite curse word?
    Shit. I just like the way it rolls off my tongue.  You can draw it out.  Like you start shhh (like your shushing somebody) then you end with -it.  Shhh-it.  Or you can say it very fast and staccato like. 
  6. What sound or noise do you love?
    Ocean Sounds 
  7. What sound or noise do you hate?
    Yelling.  (As her child, I found this answer rather interesting because she is a yeller.) 
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
    Astronomer.  I’ve wondered what was beyond the stars and never believed that we were or are the only ones out there or here. So, I wanted to find out what out there. 
  9. What profession would you not like to do?
    Not sure about this.  I’ve worked a lot of jobs over the years.  Some I enjoyed a great deal others I haven’t, but you do what you need to do in order to make ends meet.I would have to say any job from that television show Dirty Jobs.  Disgusting.
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
    I would probably say “Holy Shit!” While He shook his head.  But I would love to hear Him say,”Even though I threw a lot at you you handled it well and kept the faith.  Thank you for being a faithful servant.

Day 12: NaBloPoMo — Inside the Blogger’s Studio w/ Me

Not sure this can rightly be called Actor’s Studio, so I’m going to go with  . . . dun dun dun dun

Blogger’s Studio

. . . so here are my answers from today’s Daily Post.

  1. What is your favorite word?
  2. What is your least favorite word?
    I can’t.  Bugs the hell out of me, especially when you haven’t even tried.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
    A lot of things: Stupidity (only because some of that crap you can’t make up); people watching; my own crazy warped imagination
  4. What turns you off?
    A lot of things, but Stupidity definitely tops the list.  Yes, it’s on what turns me on and what turns me off.  The reason being is that there is so much to go around and inspire food for fodder and great laugh out loud moments as well as the ones that get your blood boiling.
  5. What is your favorite curse word? Read More…

Not While I’m Alive

For today’s WP Daily Prompt, I though about creating a character and writing a story, but decided against it.  Maybe later down the road I’ll write a story featuring one or more of these places.

Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?

  • The Morgue — It’s just something very eerie about a morgue that just doesn’t sit right with me.  Yes part of it is that it’s inundated with dead people in a giant refrigerator and in drawers
  • A Cemetery — Cemeteries are very beautiful places and look extremely peaceful, but I have to tell you Michael Jackson’s Thriller video ruined it for me
  • A Funeral Home — It’s not that this place just reminds me of taxidermist for people.  That alone would probably be alright, but it’s the workers that give me the heebie jeebies.  They speak in such a solemn and monotone voice and have these weird and awkward smiles on their faces.  I can’t help but think their fitting me for a casket
  • Jail — I have absolutely no desire to be Big Bertha’s cell mate and I have a really hard time with authority.  I’m the boss of me and having someone else be the boss of me would not go over very well.  Also that I’m in a little cell with a little window and not to mention surrounded by women all day.  That in of itself would drive me to drink, if I could have alcohol.
  • Antarctica — Why would I want to go there.  It’s an ice abyss and it’s just to damn cold
  • The Sahara Desert or Death Valley — To frackin hot during the day and to frackin cold at night. I’m a cool 65°–75° kinda gal with no humidity

What I Long For

Alright today I decided to tackle two challenges in one post.  The Daily Post Prompt: Places and the Trifecta weekend challenge of writing a piece using: 1) only 33 words and 2) it had to be in first person.  So here it or rather they are.  Enjoy! 😀


I never yearned for writing our names in the sand or skiing or camping as long as she was here.  Now she’s gone — that’s all I long for, and her at my side.

Your Guess is As Good As Mine

Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.

This is my response to today’s WP Daily Prompt.

First of all, I don’t keep pen and paper by the bed. Secondly, I have a lot of thoughts running through my head when I wake up in the morning. One such thought is “Damnit. Is it really time for me to get up?” Another is pondering what I’m going to wear. And still another is the classic “5 more minutes mom, please”, even though my mother no longer wakes me and further more it would be a bit difficult for her to do so since we don’t live in the same house. Inevitably those 5 more minutes turn into 15, 20, or maybe even 30 minutes.

By the time I leave the house I’ve probably tossed around Read More…

Normalacy is Relative

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might. Now, tell us at least six unique, exciting, or just plain odd things about yourself.
  1. My mother refers to me as Encyclopedia Britannica.  I know a little about a lot, which makes me dangerous enough to get myself into trouble or more frequently other people.
  2. I have a very dry sense of humor
  3. Most people think I don’t like children.  I do, but can’t stand bad, disrespectful ones.  Makes me want to string them up from the nearest tree by their toenails.
  4. I believe in the 2nd Amendment — that it is the right of the people to keep and bear arms.  However, I do believe that in some instances this has gone to far.  I do not believe in assault weapons for the average every day Jane or Joe.
  5. I watch cartoons every opportunity I get.  Rugrats are a personal favorite and of course the classics — the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Scooby Doo (not the new stuff and definitely nothing with Scrappy Doo).
  6. You don’t want to make me angry and you definitely don’t want to see me angry.


Check them out! They’re fun, interesting, unique, and much much more.
