Posts Tagged ‘just for fun’

Relaxing in the chair a few days ago, I took a photo of my cup and saucer and then had some editing fun with my Glazed and Picasa apps. Here are some of the results that I particularly liked.  Any favorites?

For some reason, the other day I thought of two comments I’ve remembered through the years.  When I was in college, a friend of mine told me that he could always tell it was me in the distance because “You walk like you’re trying to get somewhere.”  Even now, people at work, all younger than I, have said that I “zoom around”, “have more energy than any of us”, or words to that effect.  I consider that a win against age.  🙂

The second comment came when I was living and working in Steamboat Springs, Colorado right after graduation from college.  I played softball on an excellent women’s team, but in one preseason, I played on a men’s team.  (The team wanted me to play for them during the season, but the league refused, saying that men might want to play on the women’s teams.  I didn’t think that likely, but who knows.)  At any rate, one of the men said to me, “You’re not a jock, you’re an athlete.”  “Jock” applied to a woman, tends to have a somewhat negative connotation, whereas “athlete” does not.

Which two comments about you come to mind as comments you like or treasure?  (Only G-rated, please.)  🙂  I’d love to have you share them in the comment section.  Please join in or it’s no fun.

P.S.  On the humorous side, during that preseason, I slid into third base, knocking the (male) third basemen on his derriere.  When my brother was visiting, the man was on the lift in front of us.  We’d been talking about softball when he yelled at my brother that during a game, “Your sister knocked my on my butt.”   He took great pleasure in that and honestly, so did I!  🙂  OK, your turn.

Pulled from the headlines:

Mitch McConnell: Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Accuses Majority Leader of Lying on Senate Floor Friday

Why lie on the Senate (or any other) floor?  Doesn’t he have a home to go to where he can lie down?  Floors in public places tend to be rather dirty, so I refuse to lie on any of them.

Sometimes that’s just how my mind works.  May you see many sillys this Saturday and enjoy every one of them.

(And please, no serious political comments!)

One night in downtown Aurora, we saw this cool light display atop a former distillery, now home to businesses. It’s a happy-making oddball, don’t you think?

Not long until I’m back to regular internet.  Thanks for bearing with me.

Oddball photo.  What more needs to be said?

The problem with the Oddball Photo Challenge isn’t finding oddball photos.  It’s deciding which photos to use.  These two are from my latest trip to the City of Brotherly Love: Philadelphia.
