The Writing Space

 So, here I am in my nice new house with my own office for "me" to make into my writing space, and I can't get comfortable in it.

How in the heck does that work?? 

Maybe it's just me, after all I'm not used to having my own area. I'm used to being in the middle of things, in the living room or at the kitchen table with my net book, and now, I'm not.

Think I'm lonely?? Don't know how that could be, the dog sits behind me in my chair, I have to kick the teenager off his games, and while I'm open to the rest of the house, I'm just not directly in the midst of everything anymore. Hmmmmm. 

Maybe it's because I have a smaller desk and I haven't really unpacked ;- hmmmm, could be. My awesome other half of a man did hang my curtains and drapes for me though :-) (Sexy watching ;-) which makes it look and feel a whole lot cozier. Yeah, Yeah, hey give me a paint brush and I'll paint a room any day, give me curtain rods and they end up flying across the room at wrap speed, LOL.

I've looked online for ideas on how to decorate, but nothing has really popped out at me. :-(

I think I'll just have to go buy myself a nice big L-shaped desk and some better storage cabinets and go from there. 

Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!! Read lots!!!!

Valentine's Quotes

Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!  ~Thomas Hood

Many are the starrs I see, but in my eye no starr like thee.  ~English saying used on poesy rings

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.  ~Albert Einstein

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.  When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.  ~Author Unknown 

I Hope everyone has a loving, safe and happy Valentine's!!

My Space -- NEW My Space WHAT??

Ok, So I went to delete my My Space account, because well you know, it's dead, and the minute I log in it transfers me over to this "NEW" My Space and click the button to join and -- blah,blah, blah.

So I did, thinking, OK, maybe they've revived it somehow. I HATE it!! I've given it a shot for three weeks, and maybe because it's me (which it could be because I am not internet crap savvy), but I just can't seem to get the hang of the stupid thing! OK, I uploaded my profile photo, but how in the hell do I put other photo's up?? I see you can, but I can't figure it out.
I don't think it's made for ease of use, and the search area to 'search' for other people. Really, by age?? And it seems to only pull up people in your living area. Again, maybe I'm doing it wrong, but seriously, I'm not a fan.

AND -- it's soooooooo geared toward music. That's fine if you're a music buff, and hey I like my music, but I'm not fanatic over it.

It resembles a dating site to me, more so than the other social medias out there. It's like they tried to do a cross between Face Book, Twitter, Match Date . Com,  and some music guru land out there, and I'm just not clicking with it.

SO I'll try again today, but I'm not promising anything! I have a lot to accomplish today and not a lot of time to spend trying to figure stupid crap out.

I know it gives the option to go back to 'classic' My Space, but again, I went there to DELETE it in the first place. 

Hmmmmm, Options to think about.

Any Hoo, have a great day and read lots!!!!

Quotes on Age

The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.  ~Doug Larson

Age is a question of mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.  ~Leroy "Satchel" Paige

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.  ~Samuel Ullman

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.  ~Chili Davis

Early Spring Predicted & Super Bowl Sunday!!

That's right, Old Punxsutawney Phil has declared it's going to be an early Spring this year. Let's hope it's not a 'mistake' like last year, especially for all my family and friends up North. 

Florida's  been in a bit of a cold spell, (I'm sorry hold on while I laugh) LOL. It has been a bit chilly, you know needing to toss on a sweater, but nothing like the cold snaps of the North. Although cold doesn't usually last that long in Florida, it is Winter here when we go from 80 one day to 60 the next. :-)

All I'm asking for is a nice Spring Florida day for my Spring wedding. ;-)

So to see the full Associated Press Story for Phil's Prediction you can follow this link ... LINK 

Have a great day, stay warm, stay safe and for those of you who enjoy football ... have an AWESOME Super Bowl Sunday!!
Me, I just watch the commercials ;-) I love the Budweiser Clydesdales!! 

Budweiser Clydesdale Streaker Super Bowl XL Commercial

You've gotta love it!!
