As the full moon rises, the sun sets.
A Key, a kite and lightning.
December 1, 1955 Montgomery Alabama, Rosa Parks refuses to give a white man her seat on a bus.
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Great moments in history. I enjoyed the ride!
Special moments, indeed, Peanut.
My iconic moment:
On September 20th, 2006 in BWW, Ann took me by the hand and led me to myself.
This is such a nice thing to say, Shaddy. May we always write on, together.
What an eloquent way to put your awakening. So glad you found yourself and that you share your words so freely.
The kiss, then the heartbreak.
The launch, then parts raining down.
Rockets red glare, star spangle banner.
The rejection letter, then Times #1 bestseller.
I read that Agatha Christy had 39 rejections letters before she took off. What a world, huh?
The drastic contrasts separated by mere commas take my breath away, Walk.
Me sending this.
I can only quote Saturday Night Live: “I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!”
You “mince” words.
Who is the practical joker responsible for the exclamation point following my name? Ann?
It wasn’t me! !!! But it’s very funny, as if you are so excited about yourself. (Me!!)
I wish I knew how to get it off, but I don’t (!!!) Maybe you can sign in as someone else. Just don’t disappear again. It’s fun to read your stuff.
It’s very, very funny considering my overuse of them. They’re coming back to haunt me.
ICONIC OR MORONIC ?
You are cordially invited to a celebration of TRUE LOVE as
John and Martha
renew their vows at a ceremony to be held on
Sunday, April 1, 2012
at 2:00 pm (Pacific Time)
At a place of Lady Linquist’s choosing,
Please no presents ( as they could easily be used as weapons knowing
John and Martha.)
No RSVP needed, if you show up…GREAT
April Fools Day, huh? I hear there are tornadoes predicted for that day (charging like bulls in a china shop). I wonder if we’ll be able to make it to the lodge near the top of Mt. Hood since there are a lot of curves on that road, and the sun is always glaring in your eyes. It’s exhausting!
Dee Dee will bring the Red Bull and cigarettes.
Sounds just like our kind of get together. I bought some really powerful sunglasses after the last car trip into the sun, so I am prepared. I’m excited about the party, but I have my doubts if John and Martha can really make it work this time.
Peanut! As soon as I read this I grabbed my notes from Ann’s class and found Lesson 7! “With the infinite road ahead, I shuddered at the thought that I would have to endure yet another long and lonely ride home through the unforgiving desert.” I look forward to see what happens when John and Martha try to renew their vows. Did you notice that I said try? (he,he) This is going to be fun! 🙂
Oh Kitten, what has possesed John and Martha to attempt such a futile idea? But “Hope Springs Eternal”. So glad you’ll be there for the festivities.
This expression has always kinda amused me. How can anyone say “I’m speechless” if they’re speechless?
Didn’t say it. I wrote it.
And actually, I am frequently speechless. At the keyboard, however, I am verbose.
I’m taking this to mean it is a rare moment. May you never lack words.
How is everybody doing? It has been a while since the last time I visited this blog. I was away for three weeks… on vacation. When I returned, I had to update my resume. While that is still in progress, though my response is off the topic, funny part of me couldn’t hold back –
As the full moon rises, the sun sets.
In the abandoned cemetery, the Zombies rise
Dressed in Rags, the finest they could find
All went for the party, at the disused haunted house
Small Zombies are skipping, expression less
Women Zombies are wearing their bone jewelry
Men Zombies are shouting, I think about skull ball game from morning
They will have Zombie fun until next sun rise.
Iconic zombie families. May we drink from the bowl of their skulls.
More Iconic Moments:
From there: “Thank you, Miss”
To here: “Thank you, Ma’am”
Hi Ann! It’s me, the girl with the mice falling from the ceiling…
That’s not an image I am likely to forget.
I trust I can respond, “Thank you, Ma’am!”
Personal iconic moment: When after 50 years, I figure out a hairdo that took one minute to fix and never required a beauty parlor. Freedom!
I will never reach Hair Nirvana. Me minus flat iron equals Roseanne Roseannadanna.
Aw. She was cute. We of the straight hair always wished for curls.
As a founding member of The Shrubbery Headed Women’s Support and Pruning Center of Greater Will County, I feel that I must point out to my fair-haired instructor that our members, as a rule, never appear in the “After” segments in beauty magazines.
“It depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”
That’s laconic iconic
Someone get me my favorite iconic tonic!
