Way Back to When I Posted On Time?

I thought to myself, I can’t do a Throwback Thursday Post immediately following a Wayback Wednesday Post.  Then I thought, Yes I can!  I’ll look in my Facebook On This Day and share a picture from there, thinking no doubt there would be something I have not shared before.  Well, not so much.

The only photos were a couple of profile pictures.  One was Bette Davis in Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte. A Throwback indeed, but I have shared that picture before.  The other was a drawing with a small fake-solemn speech about not letting winter defeat us.

“I could spit in your eye!”

The reason I was reluctant to share it again was that I feared it would take too l9ng to find it in my Media Library.  I gave it a try and, Hello, Bette!  I have thoughts of going through my Media Library and making a month by month index, so I can readily lay my cursor on what I want.  Well, how many things do we say, “One day I am going to…”?  How many of these do we actually do?  I know, some, but how long does it take us?

Speaking of taking a long time to do things, I might as well confess I am making my Thursday blog post on Friday morning after making my Wednesday post on Thursday.  Does that make this a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post?   Let’s pretend it does.

Run Thursday, Blog Friday

I did not have to go in to work till noon today, so I went for a run this morning.  I thought I would make a Running Commentary Post.  That was this morning.  Now it is evening and all I have with me is my phone, never mind why; explanations are tiresome.

That was as far as I got on Thursday.  Now it is Friday morning, and I am frantically typing on the dining-room-table-top, hoping to make a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post and get away with it.  That was a trifle dramatic.  In fact, I am not frantically typing but merely ten-finger typing. It is so much faster than pecking one letter at a time with my finger, as I was attempting to do last night (I did not even have a stylus, and that is what you might call a first world problem).

So, about yesterday’s run…  It was windy and cold, but I don’t usually mind that.  I was running early on, so it was still dark out.  Other days when I have gone to work late I waited till the sun was up, but I thought it best to do it and get it over with.  Regular readers know I have a history of talking myself out of these things.

My start was a little later than for my walks this week, with the result that more traffic was on the road.  I realized right away that I had forgotten to put on my road-guard vest (that is what we army people call reflective vests).  So no running in the road, I told myself, except of course to cross the streets.  If I got to an intersection at the same time as a car, I quickly turned the corner, so as to avoid the question of whose turn it is.  Some drivers nicely wave you ahead, but I could not count on seeing that in the dark.  Also I could not count on drivers, nice or otherwise, seeing me without my vest.

No, I did not take pictures as I ran.

I made sure I ran by my beloved Herkimer Historic Four Corners, because I knew I had some pictures in my Media Library that had been taken in the dark.  They are from December 2020, but I thought they would pep up the post nevertheless. Additionally, this adds to the non-sequitur quality of the post.  Side note:  some might argue that since the pictures are related to the subject at hand, they are not true non-sequiturs, but I am no hand at argument.

I did not run as far as I run on the weekends.  I felt I should recruit my energies for my day at work.  However, it was a respectable run.  As I ran, I pondered once again whether I would run the Reindeer Run 5K in Little Falls Dec. 10.  I feel I am in good enough shape to do so.  Full disclosure:  I also feel I could run a 5K at any time, in shape or not, through sheer stubbornness.  I must make that decision soon.  I will naturally let my readers know what I decide.

In the meantime, I see I am over 500 words.  That’s a lot for me!  And I did not even say much about the run.  No matter.  I find this quite respectable for a late post.  I hope my readers have been reasonable entertained.

Another picture of the Four Corners, just for good measure.

 

 

I Guess I’m on the Cusp

It seems I am no longer a daily blogger.  I do not like that.  I like to be a daily blogger.  With that in mind, I am sitting at my dining-room-table-top on Friday morning, hoping to make a Throwback Thursday post.  Then later today I can make a Lame Post Friday post, and go on from there.  I have a recent history of dropping the ball on weekends, so we shall see.  A little suspense adds interest to my week.

So pretty!

I throw back to November 2016 and a lovely bouquet sent to me by my husband, Steve.  He recently sent me another bouquet, but I have neither my cell phone nor my Tablet handy to take a picture, and anyways, that would not be much of a throwback, being just earlier this week.  Then again, some people feel 2016 is not so long ago either.  I cannot deal with these deep questions so early in the morning.

So sweet!

Another picture from 2016:  our sweet, dearly missed poocher, Spunky.  I was watching the National Dog Show yesterday and simply longing for another dog of my own.

Time to be merry!

Let me take a break from melancholy with a Christmas muppet picture.  I feel Thanksgiving is a fitting start to the Christmas season, with Santa Claus anchoring the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  One of my favorite Christmas movies, Miracle on 34th Street, begins on Thanksgiving.  I happened to catch that movie recently.  I am ready to feel Christmasy, are you?

I hope everybody had a lovely Thanksgiving, by the way.   As for this blog post, I am going to bill it as a Non-Sequitur Thursday, seeing as I am having Throwback Thursday on Friday morning, and I cannot decide between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

 

What Kind of Post? It’s a Mystery!

This is a Post-Rehearsal Post, a Throwback Thursday Post, and still under the heading of All He Laughed Himself to Death All The Time.  Hey, that makes this a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post as well!  Or am I spreading myself too thin?  Oh yeah, like I could ever be thin!  Maybe if I go back on the South Beach Diet for a LONG time!  But never mind that, on with the post!

We had an excellent rehearsal for He Laughed Himself to Death, the murder mystery we are putting on to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society in a mere two days.  I think it will be a lot of fun.

A suspicious bunch, to say the least!

Since I once again neglected to take any pictures at tonight’s rehearsal, I thought I would pep up the post with a picture from a previous murder mystery.  This was the cast of A G.R.A.V.E. Murder, which we presented a few years ago, also to benefit the historical society.  You see, this is where Throwback Thursday comes in.

A dramatic moment, captured on film.

Here is a rehearsal shot from another murder mystery, whose title escapes me.  How embarrassing.  All I can really think about, though, is how much better I liked my hair in that ultra-short ‘do (I am the one on the far left).

Be all that as it may, I repeat for the benefit of local readers that He Laughed Himself to Death will be presented Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Herkimer Elks Club, 124 Mary St., Herkimer, NY.  Doors open at 5:30 p.m.  Tickets are $35 and are available at the Herkimer County Historical Society, 315-866-6413.

 

Will I Have the Last Laugh?

I meant to make a post using more pictures taken on a recent walk, but those pictures are on my phone and here I am on my Tablet.  Still, the phone is on the coffee table.  I could pick it up and look…

Or not.  My only purpose now is to make a Post-Rehearsal Post.  And I might even eat an ice cream cone out of the freezer before I do so.

It is not actually chocolate running down this head.

I put in an unrelated picture to show the passage of time while I ate ice cream.  I do not remember if I actually used this picture to give a shout-out to Yettys Pizza and Pasta of Herkimer, NY.  I must look at my past posts and make sure I have done so.

Did somebody say murder mystery?

I scrolled through my Media Library till I found a picture of a murder mystery, because the rehearsal I was at was for a murder mystery: He Laughed Himself to Death.  It will be presented on Saturday, Nov. 5, at Herkimer Elks Lodge, to benefit Herkimer County Historical Society.

I just now copied this from Facebook.

Now I have given a proper shout-out to the murder mystery.   I am going to bill this as a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post,  because I have been a little all over the place.  If only I could think of a sufficiently random headline, my life would be perfect.

 

Is It Still Thursday?

What is it with me and late blog posts?  I guess I am just too tired and lazy.  Oh dear, that doesn’t make me sound very good.  Then again, I am kind of a stinker.  Never mind, let me see if I can manage a Throwback Thursday Post.

Oh, yeah, I used to do 5Ks.

Since it is the last day of September, I looked at September 2017 in my Media Library and saw this.  I only did this 5K once, although I know they did it other years as well.  I did not notice if they did one this year.  I am not exactly in 5K shape these days, although I am running a few days every week.  Some people run these races with no training at all.  I believe I could run 5Ks or more at almost any time, from sheer stubbornness.  I would just start and not stop till the end.  I prefer to train, at least somewhat.

I am not really an afternoon or an evening person either, and certainly not a night owl.

This delightful fellow was also first shared in September 2017.  It is high time I got my Halloween decorations out for the year.  Perhaps this weekend.

Speaking of Halloween decorations…

I had to go to 2019 to find a picture of my Halloween decorations.  Full disclosure:  the witch is on my porch as I type (I was about to put “as we speak” but felt that was not strictly accurate).  I dressed her as an angel at Christmas time.

Ooh, look, I am over 250 words.  Score!  I would say I will try for a better blog post later, but it is Lame Post Friday after all.

 

Thursday? Friday? Hey, It’s a Post

I have been so good about making my blog post on the day indicated.  I have at worst resorted to a Post-Rehearsal Post.  But here I sit Thursday evening, wondering exactly how bad it would be to make my Non-Sequitur Thursday post on Friday  morning.  Oh, I understand it would be bad.  But would it be terrible? Would it be catastrophic?

Obviously it would not.  I have done it many times.  But it is not my favorite thing to do. I can only say it is better than not posting at all.  Which I have done.

Where was I?  Ah yes,  trying to make at least a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post.

Regal, yes?

I quickly throw in a picture from 2017, to make for a Throwback Thursday Post.  Oh yeah, it is also All Love’s Labour’s Lost All The Time,  because this is a shot from a previous offering from LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company. The actor is in this year’s offering, but he does not wear this costume.

Now it is Friday morning and I am sipping coffee and trying to finish this post despite the headache that came to me during the night.  Yes, I just had to throw in that little whine.  Judge me if you are so inclined.

However, that useless little paragraph got me over 200 words.  I say that is OK for a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post.  I’ll just throw in one more picture of Love’s Labour’s Lost, because, you know, All The Time.

Similar to the last one I shared, but a little different.

Once again, Love’s Labour’s Lost by William Shakespeare will be presented by LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company Saturday and Sunday August 13 and 14 at 1 p.m.  at Benton’s Landing in Little Falls, NY, part of Little Falls Canal Celebration. Admission is free.

 

I Feel Beastly

The beauty part about getting up way early is that even when you oversleep, you still have time to do a few things.  The beast part is choosing which things to give up (see what I did there?).  So, no walk this morning, but I hope some semblance of a blog post.  Some would argue that the walk is more essential, but while there is a vague chance I will take a walk after work, if I blog after work (which indeed I hope to do), it will be Friday’s post, not a late Thursday post.

So much for an introduction to a Non-Sequitur Thursday Post.  I am sitting at my laptop (dining-room-table-top, as regular readers may recall), ten-finger typing, sipping greatly appreciated coffee

And that was when I said, “Oh crap, I didn’t plug in my phone,” followed by “Oh crap, where did I put my phone?”  I retraced my steps (how many steps could I have taken; I just got up!).  Luckily my phone, unlike my Tablet, retains its original charging chord so will easily reach 100 percent by the time I go to work.  I only hope I remember to put it in my backpack, which, as anybodywho knows me will readily believe, is not a given.

As you may have guessed by now, I got nuthin’.  What a surprise.  I think I will throw in a picture to pep things up, slap on a catchy title, hit Publish, and drive on.  I hope to see you all later on Lame Post Friday (thank God I made it to Friday!).

I admit I have had catchier titles.

May be an image of one or more people and text that says 'Smile it's...FRIDAY FRIDAY'

Oops, I put a Friday meme on a Thursday post.

Use this later

Alas, I am back to my bad habit of making a late blog post.  In fact, I am skeptical of my ability to make a post now.  We are having a heat wave, and I do not like it!  I went for my walk, which I missed yesterday, and it is quite muggy out.  The birds were not singing.  They weren’t singing Tuesday either, and I do not remember Monday.  Oh dear, I am getting all bogged down in my petty complaints and whining when I set out to plug a local business and musician.  Get your act together, Cindy!

That is what I typed in this morning.  Then I got my act together at least enough to make a post about Phil Arcuri at Fratello’s.  However, mindful of the phrase Waste Not Want Not, I saved the whiny paragraph, labeling it “Use this later.”  I think I will keep that as my heading and bill this as a Non-Sequitur Thursday post.

It is a fairly silly post, too, because the first thing I say is I am posting late, and here I am, fanatically pecking at the Tablet with my stylus hoping to make my Thursday post on Thursday.  But when have I ever worried about making a silly post?

I thought I looked pretty.

I looked in my Media Library for a silly picture and found this.  I believe I was dressed for a murder mystery.  I must play with the curling iron again sometime.

 

I Got Shakespeare on Cloudy Day! Or Do I?

I want to share a few more pictures from Wednesday night’s rehearsal of Love’s Labour’s Lost with LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company.  Full disclosure: I mostly decided to do this post because I thought of that title while I was on this morning’s walk.  I should also fully disclose that, yes, I am again late, making Thursday’s post early Friday morning.  Come, gentle coffee, enhance my meagre brain with thy magic!

Now what!  I just added that picture and I can’t get the cursor to go beyond the caption!  Every time I put the cursor at the end of the caption and hit Enter, the cursor jumps back to the end of the preceding paragraph.  I guess the coffee is not enhancing my brain very well.

 

He looks tough, but I hear he speaks the mere contrary.

Well, I don’t know how I did that, but here I am below the picture, typing words.  And I forgot what all I was going to say about the other night’s rehearsal.  Incidentally, my original title for this post was “I Got Shakespeare on a Cloudy Day.”  I added “Or Do I?”  when I started to have such troubles with it.  I am certain all my tribulations are a result of Operator Error, as usual, a rather lowering thought.

Another comic pair.

Ooh, here I am below the picture without even trying.  If only I knew what I did when I do something right!  In any case, here I am over 200 words and needing more coffee.  I’m going to bill this as a Non-Sequitur Thursday, hit Publish, and hope for the best.  I hope to see you all later, when I hope to make my Lame Post Friday post on time.

 

Oh, OK, one more picture!
