This homework had me stumped for awhile. I didn't want to select a dead celebrity (I was thinking Beatrix Potter, I swear I have bits of her soul lodged in my being like small shards of glass reduced to glitter and sprinkled over my spirit), but I just let my mind wander as it does, and thought about people's actions and what rings...

Lovely

All right, get nice and cozy in your most comfortable chair, sit back, put up your feet, because I'm going to tell you the story of how I thought it would be a great idea to be a stripper.

So I get some of the dumbest ideas and most of the time I don't act on them (thankfully), and other times I do...

After reading this you have dashed my dreams of becoming a stripper

Pity. The world could really do with a bibliophile ecdysiast... 😘😘😘

Get your puke buckets ready because this @bloghomework is vomitorious (in a good way)! The past few weekends the husband and I have been re-watching the Harry Potter movies and we always seem to get stuck on the topic of patronus' and what ours would possibly be. I always think mine might be some goofball little animal like a chipmunk or chihuahua hopping around all...

I love language that is fun in the mouth.  Some things are just physically fun to say.  Thanks for, "Nimbly Pimbly".  It made me smile.

Awwww that is so super sweet! 

To still be loving and commenting on my first super old set where I didn't have a stitch of ink yet! I still love this set and I miss @lorelei! She's super cute, sweet, and generally just an all around awesome person. And man, I really wish my hair was that long again!

I also just noticed I'm watering a begonia with

@catdad I totally agree! 

Their debut album comes out later this month! If you're a fan of Megadeth definitely give them a listen, Chris and Shawn are in the band; and if you're in the LA area, they've been playing gigs.

@libris Siiiiiick!

hmmm pretty good!)

This weekend was finally clear both days! Seriously, I don't think that's happened in Scotland since April, so of course we took advantage of it and spent nearly all weekend outside. We're avoiding downtown Edinburgh like the plague since the Fringe is going on and it's rather insane so we wandered over to Dean, which is quite close to where we

Brilliant pictures - it's a pity that they let people park their cars so prominently though - the first picture is real Sir Walter Scott, or even Burke & Hare, but the second one is spoilt by the appearance of modern cars. They should do what they do in Polperro in Cornwall, which is to ban the car from the town, which is small, pretty, and vertiginous. If you can't make it on foot, there is a Land-Rover taxi, and that's it. Having said that, I should very much like to visit Dean some day.

This was great, thanks for posting.

As I sit here waiting on a delivery of a case of wine (we joined a wine club!), I'll tell you what I do every single morning.

Right, so I wake up around 8 and lay there for about 20 minutes contemplating my dreams from the night, pet a dog that's sticking her cold, wet, nose in my face (my husband wakes up

Oh, and morning routine.  Wake up with alarm (clock radio) at 7:10, if not before, and immediately get out of bed, walk over to it, and hit the snoozinator to wake me up again in 30 or 40 minutes.  Then back to bed.  If I can sleep, great.  If not, I'll probably toss and turn a bit before deciding to rub one out.  When the alarm goes off, I'll listen for a few minutes, then get up (about 8:00 now), throw on something casual, pick out clothes for the day, walk into the front entry and turn off the porch light, and take the clothes to the bathroom.  Celia only comes to visit after she hears me get up, so she will have gotten some petting in there somewhere.  I give her first breakfast, brush my teeth, and turn on the shower.  If Celia is done (she usually is), I'll let her out for a bit.  Then I get undressed, shower, dry off, primp, and get dressed.  Then I grab my wallet, keys, and briefcase, turn on the aquarium light, and try to get Celia to come in on her own.  If she won't, I'll take my briefcase out to the car, go find her, pet her for a bit, and bring her in.  Just before I leave the house, I give her second breakfast.  Then I set the home alarm and leave.  That all takes about 45 minutes and my commute is about 15 minutes, so I'm at work by 9, usually a few minutes earlier.  I don't eat or drink anything until I get there.  The only thing my weekend has in common with weekdays is putting something casual on immediately after getting up and the feeding Celia bit.  Everything else is a crapshoot as to when and if.  I rarely stay in bed after 10:00, though.

My late father belonged to a whisky club, which was possibly one of the best ideas ever. He'd get testers of new whiskies, and bottles of old, rare whiskies, all of which had to be 'tested', and, as my brother does not like Scotch Whisky, (yes, I know. Quiet at the back, there) I would assist dad. It was hard, leisurely work. When dad died, I contacted the whisky club to inform them, and to cancel his subscription. A few days later, a package arrived addressed to me from the whisky club. It was a bottle of a very good single malt, along with a note confirming the order cancellation, and a second note explaining that I might like the single malt to raise a glass to my dad. There are some really nice people out there, if you know where to find them. Obviously lots in Scotland.
