Oh Poo! It’s Sunday!

Actually, isn’t it right in front of us?

I stole this picture from a Facebook page I love, Dracula’s House of Halloween, because I thought it would be funny on a Wrist to Forehead Sunday Post.  I don’t know that I am apt to swoon, dramatically posed with the back of on wrist to my forehead (is there another way to swoon?), but I am feeling a little down.

Weird Al can cheer me up!

I feared the post would degenerate into “Oh poor, pitiful me!” so looked for an another funny picture to share.  This is Weird Al Yankovic in Galavant, a truly delightful television series that sadly only lasted only two seasons.  My husband, Steven, got me the whole series on DVD, so there is another cheery thought.

Which poo do I feel more like?

I like to have three pictures in a blog post, so here is some fake poo I bought a few years ago as a prop for a murder mystery.  I’m not sure where the smaller poo is, but I think the big one is on the landing of my stairs.  My house is a terrible mess, but at least I know where I can lay my hands on some fake poo!

This is turning into a rather silly post, almost a Non-Sequitur Sunday.  But I believe a silly post is better than no post at all.  Thank you once again for tuning in.

Who, Me? Not Like Monday? Monstrous!

It came, it saw, it kicked my ass.  It was… MONDAY! Cue dramatic music.

Go back in the water!

I just discovered this meme this morning, on a Facebook page called Dracula’s House of Halloween.  I thought I had overused the picture of Frankenstein’s Monster saying, “No like Monday!” Then again, it was often appropriate.

Oh, don’t tell me to quit whining.  And stop playing that miniature violin.  I am allowed to have a moment, or even a whole series of moments.

As a matter of fact, it was not all that heinous of a day.  I lived through it.  Only now that I am home from work, I feel quite brain dead and unable to manage even a Monstrous Monday blog post.

THERE’S the brain!

This is the picture I was looking for in a previous blog post when I was feeling similarly brain dead (perhaps you read it).  It is The Brain from the Planet Arous. On the previous post, I settled for The Brain that Wouldn’t Die. I guess I used it ironically.  So many brains, so little blog.  Ooh, that might make a good title, although “So Many Brains, None of them Mine” might be more accurate.

“What do you mean, you didn’t want to use the picture of me?”

I throw in a picture of Frankenstein’s Monster, in case he felt bad that I did not use the one of him hating on Monday.  One likes to be sensitive to monsters’ feelings. If horror movies have taught us anything, it is that things can get really ugly.

And now I see I am over 250 words.  Not bad for being brain dead.  I hope to see you all on Tired Tuesday.

 

Not Feeling Friday

I am pretty sure I used that headline before, but it fits so well.

That’s the face!

I stole this image from Dracula’s House of Halloween, one of my favorite Facebook pages. Just look at Herman Munster’s face. That is the face of a person who has to work on Saturday. I tell you what: being gainfully employed is not all it’s cracked up to be.

Yes, I am whining in a most unbecoming fashion. After all, I don’t work EVERY Saturday. And they would let me off the hook if I had something important going on, like the Pride Stride 5K in Little Falls, which I recently ran (perhaps you read my blog post about it).

What I am saying is, my life is not that bad. In fact, having to work tomorrow is the least of my worries. Never mind what the most of my worries is; I would have to take the time to rank them and give you a Top 10 list, and nobody wants that.

Somebody tell that ant: When a lady says no, it means no.

See, some people have dates on Friday night, although Joan Collins does not seem to be enjoying hers. Just kidding. This is a shot from Empire of the Ants, which I need to see again. I was scrolling through my Media Library looking for another picture, and this was the only one that caught my eye.

That last bit of silliness got me over 200 words, so score! I say good enough for Lame Post Friday. I may not be feeling Friday, but I have no problem with lame!

“Charles Nelson Reilly Isn’t Wearing Socks”

It is that moment of the evening when a blogger has got to just pour herself a glass of wine and make the damn blog post.  Oh, I know, it is perfectly possible to make a blog post without drinking wine and, indeed, that is what I usually do.  But what fun is that on a Friday?  Especially on a Friday when one has weekends off and this is a three-day weekend.  If this is not you, don’t hate on me.  I had plenty of jobs where it was not the case.  In fact, my own husband has none of the next three days off, so even my life is not perfect.

Be all that as it may, today is Lame Post Friday.  As lame as this whole week has been, blog-wise, today I am going to relax even more and be even sillier.  I wonder if I should include pictures.

love, Love, LOVE Match Game!

This is the picture I saw on Facebook yesterday and wanted to include in the blog post.  It was on a page called Iconic Cool, which posts all kinds of awesome photos.  They posted this one because Charles Nelson Reilly died ten years ago May 25.  It brought to mind the oft-repeated line of Brett Somers on the show Match Game:  “Charles Nelson Reilly isn’t wearing socks.”  Someday I’d like to write a book with that title. Perhaps about a murder taking place backstage at Match Game 75 (year subject to change, but I always felt the show sounded incomplete without the year).

Well, now I feel I should include more pictures.  On the other hand, perhaps my readers will become impatient with me if all I ever do is post pictures I find on Facebook with my silly comments.  Back to the first hand, it is fun to use pictures, and I can always strive to improve myself with future blog posts.  Especially if I continue to post every day.

I should have led with this one.

 

Monsters is my usual default, as you may have noticed.  I found this on Dracula’s House of Halloween, one of my favorite Facebook pages.

In fact, it is not my favorite Shakespeare monologue.

To close out this post, I go Shakespearean and punny.  I was looking and looking in a Punmanship group for a good joke to share.  This one taps into my deep-seated fear of boring my readers.  I see I am almost to 400 words (oops, over now).  Way too long for a Friday Lame Post!  I hope my readers will forgive me, and I hope to see you all on Scattered Saturday.
