Stefers the Great and the Horrible, Awful, No Good, Very Bad Sniffles

So sorry that I have been remiss in my posting duties. Not only did my life go absolutely crazy with business this past week, but I also got sick and have been trying to quell the person who has decided to open the faucet attached to my nose on at full strength. Post nasal drip is a bitch, guys.

At any rate, my fever has now broken, and I'm feelind well enough to post the winners for this past week's Make It Up Monday!

     “You think he’s as old as he looks?” I asked her. “It’s a hard life out here. He’s probably thirty.”
     “I think he’s a thousand years old,” she replied. “He’s as old as the earth.” There was something disturbingly cosmic in her tone.
     “Sixty?” I tried not to let the concern squeak out in my voice. But it did.
     “I know this is a lot for you. I know it’s more than you bargained for. But the spirituality of this place will melt our souls together in a bond stronger than the moon and the earth.”
More than I bargained for? Pretty much. Twenty seven hundred miles from home with my Internet girlfriend that I just met and just happens to possess a cultish insanity. And I’m stuck here in some Tibetan Deliverance. I half expect this shaman dude to drop his pipe of I don’t even wanna know and break into Dueling Dramyins.
     “No honey.” I had taken a lot of time to gather my thoughts, but I still had no idea what I was going to say. “It’s just so much energy here. It’s hard to wrap my head around.” Energy? What the hell am I talking about? That’s when he gave me the pipe. He just handed it to me.
     “She’s not what she seems to be,“ he said with the most practiced English and complete annunciation I had ever heard, as he pushed his smoking cigar stick thing into my palm.”
If you mean she’s not crazy, I beg to differ. And then, a long inhale. What the… I feel kinda.
     “Get his shoes off. We don’t have much time.”

Thanks so much for naming my little haiku a winner! I love your MIUMs-they get me writing even when I don't really feel like it. Hope you feel better soon. Sending you a virtual bowl of Jewish chicken soup-it always helps!

Hope you feel better soon, Stef! I didn't even catch the picture (have been kind of busy myself - kind of -that's a huge understatement) but I enjoyed the winners even without seeing it - stretches the imagination!
I really enjoyed the last poem, get well soon :-)
Hey girl It must be going around. I have been under the weather myself. If you find the guy responsible for the post nasal drip tie him up I'll be there to help you get rid of him. He must be done in... I am really tired of him slipping in when we are not looking.
On another note the winners are great. I love the first one.
Congratulations! I have given you the Versatile Blogger Award at:

‘’Don't know if this helps but I had tonsil stones and awful and bad breath. My friend told me to check Oraltech Labs as it helped him get rid of bad breath and his post nasal drip. I've been following Oraltech Labs advice for about 4 months now and I feel much better, also at work people are not avoiding me anymore so it seems to have cured my bad breath as well’’

I've been so busy lately I haven't been able to read your blog. I've missed your witty posts. :-) I hope all is well.

Sorry to hear you have been sick. Seems to be going around. I'm just getting over a three week bout with the flu, so I know how bad you must feel. Hope you feel better soon. ;)

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List" What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious. Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list. Things That Are Yellow: bananas school buses yellow bell pepper tennis balls Post Shredded Wheat boxes (see right) lemons canaries the middle traffic light traffic lines the sun cheddar cheese hay corn butter cabs #2 pencils grapefruit raincoats (stereotypical ones, anyway) bees squash yellow jackets (I HATE those things!) the yolk of an egg scrambled eggs or an omelet peanut M&Ms the Simpsons various flowers rubber duckie etc... So that's my list of yellow things! :) The most curious? Well... I'll go with... but none of those are curious! That's silly. Check back later today for my 5th Character Profile on Nolan Ha
