A Slight Interlude

Lots to update on! But! Because I only have one minute…let’s play a game!


I did this last night on Twitter because…






Well turns out that like most things in my life, I don’t know why I did it.


So meanwhile!


Watch this pretend pendulum swing and follow my every command:










Post here in the comments the link to the post that popped up on your screen.


The post that came up for me?


The one where I burned my face off.


Is that some kind of sign?


But a sign for what?


Great. Now I’m going to think there’s something existential about this experiment. Like the universe is trying to tell me something. And I’ll sit here all day attempting to decode the message.


And I only had ONE minute.

    Great idea! Once my new blog is up, I invite you all to share your fave deal ever…either a blog or a link! Keep up the great work, Deb!

    I didn’t get too far in the past with this one but I think it means to go through my cabinets again to find anything else that the Empress might find/destroy.

  3. Your wish is my command…


    Apropos since Braves came back (from 8 run deficit) to defeat the Reds in 9th inning yesterday.

    Can’t wait to check these out.

    Have you decoded your universe messages yet?

    I’m so glad it wasn’t the story of the normal turd that came up! I would have had to pick something else.

    Ooh, I’m always up for a fun game. I’m glad I still feel the same way about this post: http://www.mom-zombie.com/2008/09/my-girl-crush/

    This is the funnest idea. Sadly, mine was not fun and pulled up the latest post. Too new to have much archived!

    I also love this prompt, and am looking forward to reading all this fun stuff. Mine was this:

    Side note: I also once burned my face off(ish), and one of my regular readers was there when it happens. And comments about the face-burning, kind of a lot.

    Boo. Only a link to a funny video instead of writerly brilliance. Ha!
