Friday Fhoughts

Thanks, Pixabay, for the pic!

A few random Friday thoughts:

Goldfish crackers (the snack that smiles back) are tasty. (Pardon my chewing.)

The month is coming to an end and I hope the weather swings do, too. Today: sweater, but no socks. Socks in bag, just in case. Sweater will probably come off by afternoon. It’s like being in a stage production featuring a zillion quick changes. At least winter is cold and summer is hot. I can plan for consistent temps.

I don’t know who’s liking all the Viggo Mortensen so that it’s showing up in my Pinterest feed, but thanks!

The shoes I ordered online are on their way. Note to shoemakers: Simply slapping a strap across a pump does not make it a Mary Jane.

I have this phrase I use (mostly at work) — if something’s really someone else’s responsibility, just volley that ball back. Note: At this point, my backhand could give Martina Navratilova in her prime a run for her money.

My introvert card may be revoked, or at least have an asterisk added next to the part that says (used to say?) “Extremely Introverted.” Last night, I said, “Taking a class — yeah, I think in person is better than online. Part of the fun is meeting new people.” WHO AM I?

This week, after returning from an awesome class that had me high on life, someone started talking about a President Orange speech. “Don’t,” I said. “You’ll ruin my buzz.”

My new tambourines have arrived. I shall keep the jingly beat at choir. I can’t wait.

I shall leave you with a pretty song, sans tambourine solo, that our choir is singing. Our conductor, though, doesn’t look like He-Man.


Happy, peaceful weekend, people.


I'm a writer who loves to laugh and smile. :-)

        1. Please do. I’m not sure this one infraction means I’m out for good. I’m happy to do an introvert penance — spend a weekend alone, reading, in a darkened-ish room, in my pajamas. I can do it!

          Music. Amen!

  1. This post makes me smile! Plus, I’ve also been working on stepping out of my state of natural introvertedness (is that a word? Oh well it works for me!) I’ve finished five of a 21 session in-person docent training course. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I want to crawl under the table (but I don’t). So I guess I’m a work in progress πŸ™‚

    1. Hello, Tina, and I’m so happy to hear that my post made you smile! Introvertedness is now a word. Congrats on making language! πŸ™‚ Congrats on the docent training course. That’s not a very introvert thing to do — yay you! I still want to crawl under the table sometimes. This particular person I was talking to was a writer, so maybe it’s not as bad for me if I’m talking about something I enjoy.

      Aren’t we all? Keep going!

  2. First off, I think I’d do my best to sing to THAT conductor… Hummena hummena…methinks those singers are not just looking at him for direction.

    K. This was a fun post to read and yes, by golly, volley!

    No, you are right, straps do not a Mary Jane make.

    We are far from sockless weather up here, though I can feel it is coming. Hard to tell with the mountains of grey and dirty snow left. Call it optimism on my part.

    Have an awesome weekend!

    1. I’m sorry then that I insulted (or tried to) your new faux conductor boyfriend by saying he looked like He-Man. I like people like Colin Mochrie (Canadian Comedian Alert!). Mr. Conductor’s just too pretty for me.

      YAY! Glad you enjoyed. Volley! My score is, like, a billion to love.

      I like the optimism! Happy to hear that spring will get there eventually. Normal people are probably still wearing socks today, but it’s supposed to be 70 later. My feet are anticipating that while the rest of me is still layering for winter.

      You, too!

      1. Nah…. It’s all in jest. He is very pretty. As far as conductors go, they are often way more portly and bald and…. than he is πŸ˜‰ Really? You like the Colin Mochrie look? A tad goofie and funny….


        70… haven’t seen that since… ummm… ahhh…

  3. You too, Tara (have a happy, peaceful weekend)! That’s a beautiful song. The conductor isn’t too hard to look at either. But I suppose I shouldn’t be writing/saying such things. I have trouble eating snacks that smile back at me, but not too much trouble (especially with Goldfish).

    1. Glad you enjoyed. ‘Tis a lovely song. And that’s two votes for the handsome conductor (you ladies can fight for him… I’ll be over here with Oliver Platt). I know, it’s a bit morbid that the lil’ fishies smile at ya while you eat them…. More? YES, PLEASE! πŸ™‚


  4. I want Hot Chocolate Mary Janes! Have you seen these? If not, thou shalt Google! I am having a very difficult time choosing!
    Excellent choice for music.
    Viggo Mortenson, nom nom nom, I mean, what a great actor!
    I agree about the classes. A little interaction gives a introvert just enough to ponder in the quiet.

    1. I just googled…. WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME OF THESE UNTIL NOW? Thank you, Joey! My poor bank account (literally)…. …. oh MY!
      Sorry… I’ve been on the site for a bit. Oh my. This is way worse than when no one told me how good pistachios are. Thank you, Joey!!!!!!!!!
      Shaaaaaaaaa. Viggo. Oh MY!
      And then! You get me! Oh, Joey. Joy. That’s exactly what I was trying to say — a little interaction, i.e., possibly extroverting briefly, then gives me thinking things!

      1. Yay! *wears gold star proudly* Thanks!
        Did you chooooose a shoes? I can’t yet. I’m torn by three pair, can’t make up my mind and can’t justify buying three pair at once…
        Pistachios are the bomb. I sorta have a pistachio problem.

        1. You’re welcome. Gold star well-earned.
          I went with the traditional black and white Habana classic oxford-looking ones. Twas torn, though — I also enjoyed the bacon and eggs, the world maps, the bees. I bought them through Amazon and saved about $12. Woot!
          When you get yours, we can wear them, eat Pistachios together, and just admire our shoes.

            1. The maps were down to $34, making my decision much easier πŸ˜€ I couldn’t stand the thought of you having yours and me not having mine… hah! If I like the fit, I do think the blue oxfords are next πŸ™‚

            2. All I can say is YOU’RE WELCOME.

              I have my eye on a pair that isn’t available in my size — the music platforms, for choir and all. I hope they come in, in my size again!
