This Hangnail is Driving Me Crazy!!!

26 Jul

Now that I have that out of the way…


The only writing I accomplished today was adding a few paragraphs to a short story I’m thinking of using for blog posts next week.  I may actually stick with this plan, or I may pound out a several pager that will work even better (the night before VBS starts *eye roll*).  I’m never really sure about these things.


I was wondering why I feel so tired, but then I reviewed today’s events, now it makes sense.

Over the course of the day I’ve had a migraine, gone shopping twice, attended a meeting, read several stories to a niece, visited with two of my sisters, and helped my husband empty and defrost a deep freezer.  No wonder I feel so tired.  Turning in a little early sounds good.


Could the word ‘I’ have possibly been stuck in there a few more times?!?



I (lol) have a question for my beloved, eclectic, followers: if you were to steam punk a top hat, what two things would you consider essential?  Would you perhaps want a pair of goggles, or a small magnifying glass, a pocket watch on a chain, or is there something else which you would consider a steam punk necessity?


On another note…

Who here has read and loved a short children’s book called Sleeping Ugly?


And just for some amazingness:

Some people get all the coordination…   😉

    I saw a Between the Lions (I think) episode that featured Sleeping Ugly. Last time I checked our library didn’t have it, though. 😦 I really liked it on the TV show.

    You could always re-peruse my steampunk wedding post for ideas. The bride and groom really went all out with a custom-made dress and all sorts of stuff.
    The bride’s parents don’t look overtly steampunk, but they had the most period-correct costumes.

    Goggles are really, really, really common and maybe getting to be overused, but they’re standard steampunkery. I like the pocket watch idea. 🙂

      Cool, thanks!
      I’ll have to check out your steampunk wedding post tomorrow evening. (my brain is fried right now, and tomorrow starts off running. Ugh).

      It is my opinion that goggles are a little over done, but I’m not sure if it’s because steampunkers think they’re really cool, or everyone thinks steampunkers think they’re necessary. (if that even makes sense)

        Since most steampunkers are going for the wacky inventor look, goggles make sense. I think.
