Writer’s plight – Do you ever get stuck in the middle of a comment and you don’t know how to spell a word? Two weeks ago I wanted to use the word “reminisce” in a comment. Spellcheck wasn’t fixing it and I was in a hurry so I didn’t look it up. I used an inferior word. I wanted to use it this week again but I took the time to check it out. Isn’t it odd how you KNOW how to spell something and then all of sudden it doesn’t look right?
Damn targeting ads – I got so sucked in this week. There was post on Facebook that said Sally Fields married Burt Reynolds. Like recently! Normally I don’t care about this stuff but I really like Sally. She’s my age and I admire her resilience (I knew how to spell that!). Dumb me, I clicked on it. No story about Sally at all. It was an ad for Dr. Oz’s face cream. It didn’t even say if Sally used it. How did they know that Sally would get me to click?
Depends on your view – What was hyped as a major snowstorm missed us this week. It missed a lot of us and even those it didn’t miss didn’t get what was predicted. I was doing the snoopy dance. Our forecasters were “boo hoo-ing” with one commenting that these are the events they live for. Nope, didn’t feel sorry for them one bit. If you want bad weather, work farther north.
I’ve said it before – My cats do not play with toys I buy. Morgan’s toy “du jour” is a post-it pack. She completely destroyed one pack of post-it tags this week. They are a lot cheaper than cat toys.
Message from Morgan – Cats have their own way of making a point. Sometimes it’s downright trashy. Here is a photo of Hazel sitting on Morgan’s ottoman and Morgan’s reaction to it. Sometimes I wish I could make as poignant a point.
And how was your week?
