Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.




I wrote this recently in response to someone inducing me to be silly:

Why are there no y in wire but there are an r?





In the middle of an embroidery job I accidentaLLy hit the Return button which cancels the current job, but it gives you a warning screen. You have to hit the Ok button to go ahead and cancel the job OR hit the Cancel button to cancel your cancel. I have messed up a few times with this particular screen, especiaLLy if the time is close to Tired Thirty PM.

Story 2: In the middle of an embroidery job I noticed that my bobbin winder is sounding older and slower than usual and my deadline is critical. I call my wife, "If I could have an early Christmas present, could you run to Walmart and get me another bobbin winder, it's like a $20 item. They close in less than 2 hours and I would hate to get slowed down if my old one broke."

So the new one arrives in a little while. Same exact brand and model eXcept the start button is red not green. BUT, it is broken! The tension device doesn't work AND the bobbin holder breaks the veRy first time I put one on it. Of course Wal-Mart has just closed by this time ...

Santa? What happened?


I don't understand the logic behind why it takes so long to start using an iPad after the battery has been drained and then you have it plugged back into the wall. Other non-Apple devices will generally start working immediately as soon as either a battery is there OR AC power is available.


Here is some silly: Campbell's makes a gumbo and a diet gumbo. One is 150 calories per serving and the other is 140.


I don't remember who said this to me recently, but I found it amusing: "I think we have done a jillion bazillion of them, well, maybe not a jillion." (I think it was my wife)


Steak Tar Tar

Last night I wrote a practical joke INSIDE a dream. 

In the dream I am having dinner with two gentlemen at my house. My wife in the dream is some Japanese woman. She brings out a large frozen steak to the table on a plate and tells the guests that I can cook the steak in only 3 seconds.

One of the men exclaims, "that's impossible."

I replied, "Not if you cook it at 25,000 degrees."

We all laugh and the other man asks, "yes, but, Fahrenheit or Centigrade?"

I replied, "Does it really matter?" and we laugh again.


Last Friday I was saying "... some agua ..." as part of a reminder of what to bring to work, but it came out "smog-gua". 

I thought, "smogua could be a Spanglish word for acid rain." But my water is destined for the Keurig machine, so it is going to be Keurigua.

Two new wet words in one incident, a bonus.


Sept 24th: 

It's almost 9 PM and I think someone has opened a motorcycle repair shop neXt door or across the street from my bedroom.

Sounds of Anarchy.


Strange Discovery: A towel can be an eXcellent fly swatter. I accidentally dropped a towel on a fly and killed it just now. I wasn't even trying.

I can teLL I am too tired, there were way too many typo's that I just corrected. If I missed any that is even more proof.
