MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

    2. Snow White but no Cinderalla in view?
      Maybe you could go for two

    3. Two? How hard do you want to see me work?
      Dear Lord, Cinderella... as in a perk?

    4. A perk thrown in
      Grab Sleeping Beauty and go for the trifecta win

      Delete
    5. A perk or two will do
      Better than eating a shoe
      Or baby poo

    1. Baby step, you mean? In my case it's more like flying from one state to the next in next to no time. Hey, the Blue Gallery.... Good to hear you like it. And how are you doing?

  5. I'll deliver a lovely dinner to you as soon as I've cooked it. You don't mind that I have a stomach thing going on, do you? I promise to wash my hands.

    Love,

  6. Once upon a time it was really really late
    and a blue guy missed his dinner at eight
    his friends worried, too many due dates
    on work overload, what would be his fate
    warming up your dinner now on a hot plate
    all this stress is making your pupils dilate
    you've been working too many days straight
    I know you can do it , there's no debate
    no boundaries to what you can create
    what no superhero in a bat car on the interstate
    well, that's enough to make you a tad irate
    so much to say, let's communicate..

    OK, I had some fun..hope it made you smile..

    1. I missed my dinner at nine, too
      So I just chewed on something blue
      Ew that's a nail - I'd better chew on a tail
      Making me wail and pale but never fail
      I'm like the U.S. mail: I deliver
      Making me shiver, not eat chopped liver
      No Chianti on the side
      I work when I hide
      My pupils are about to explode
      Like a toad on the road
      No Batcat, Batpickle, Badgirl
      Making me wanna twirl
      And take a break
      Or eat a cake
      Yes, you make me smile
      More often than once in a while

    2. ok, ok how about batgirl haha
      she could make your toes curl.

  7. Should have thrown up the Pickle-Signal. I could have helped you. At one point in college, I wrote a paper for a friend for a class we were both in, he got a better grade than I. That should be a good enough resume.
    Good luck to you, sir.

  13. If you've only got one left, there's light at the end of your tunnel (and it's bright). :)

    That picture reminds me of my husband. He's busy like that lately too.

    1. That tunnel is long like a boring song, but I'll finish the job and take a break, alright. Your husband is a workaholic too? With or without a smile on his face?

    1. She is, as far as I know. What she needs is some delicious Bluecake, is what she needs. One bite and lo and behold: no more flu, no more germs, no more dear-Lord-I'm-so-ill-I-could-cry. None of that stuff. Go tell her, Dezz.

  15. It's better to be busy than not, right? Just think, out there somewhere is a poor sap who's sitting on his couch with his smartphone, bored out of his mind. Doing something with your life > thumbing through Facebook for the 5th time in 30 minutes because you have no life.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You're so right. Plenty of time to be bored when you're six feet under. I read somewhere in a book by Michio Kaku that smartphones are in fact pretty stupid. I'm not kidding. And you know what happens when you spend most of our time with stupidity... ;)

      So, yeah, I've got a smartphone, too.

  31. I'm sure you've finished by now, so I'll offer post-accomplishment praise.

    I know you could do it! You totally knocked that out of the park! Well done, Sir Blue! (Yes, I just promoted you to a knighthood. I can do that, right?) Now have a cookie, because you've totally earned it. :)
