#MondayMeme – #MondayBlogs

Another busy, busy weekend, but I can rest happy knowing that on Saturday, I sent a lot of folks on their way with their heads stuffed full of facts about opossums and armadillos! There. Now how many folks can say that this morning? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

I want to let you know that while I’m not on another blog break already, I may be around a bit less than usual for a couple of days as I take care of some errands and catch up on a few other things totally NOT involving opossums and armadillos! Honest.

In the meantime, here are a couple of memes to make you smile, or possibly even laugh out loud. If you’ve seen some of them before, I hope they are worth a second look. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜€

And Remember:

And yes … Please set phasers to LOL!
(Or to GROAN, whichever works best for you.)

Funny Similes & Metaphors

  1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master.
  2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
  3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
  4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. coli and he was room-temperature Canadian beef.
  5. She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up.
  6. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
  7. He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.
  8. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wifeโ€™s infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM.
  9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldnโ€™t.
  10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.
  11. From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie, surreal quality, like when youโ€™re on vacation in another city and Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.
  12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.
  13. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.
  14. They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerriganโ€™s teeth.

  17. Even in his last years, Grandpappy had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.
  18. Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.
  19. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.
  20. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.
  21. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a real duck that was actually lame, maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.
  22. The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.
  23. It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with power tools.
  24. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if she were a garbage truck backing up.
  25. Her eyes were like limpid pools, only they had forgotten to put in any pH cleanser.
  26. She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs.

First Monday of the New Year, and though I’m very busy with my visiting family, I did want to stop by and let you know that things are picking up around The Write Stuff, bit by bit. Just to get the week off to a good start, here are a couple of writing, reading, and book-related memes to makeย  you smile. Hope a couple of them are new to you!

Enjoy!

Catching Up – #amwriting #MondayBlogs

 

HELP! Where Did All My Writing Time Go?

Happy Moon’s Day, Folks! I hope this Monday morning finds you in good health and good spirits. Just wanted to take a moment to let you know that my blog posts may be spotty for a bit. I have finally come to the conclusion that I am never going to get caught up again in this lifetime, but I can’t keep floundering in a sea of To Do Items and ignoring my writing. Sad but true, the time comes in life when we no longer have quite the energy or stamina we once did, and we have to slow the pace a bit.ย 

As a result of the above-mentioned (and truly annoying) energy decrease, I haven’t written a word in months, and it’s making me very unhappy. Therefore, I’ve decided I’m ย going to take some time to write each day (at least until I get my 4th Riverbend novel completed) even if it has an impact on my blog posts and my blog visits. I’ll do the very best I can to keep up with both, but if I miss some of my regular features or a stop or two at my favorite blogs, please forgive me. And don’t be alarmed. It just means I’m working on my book.

ย I know most of you will understand how frustrating it is to want to write but not have time to do so. (And the pandemic isolation, oddly enough, was not at all conducive to the process for many of us, either.) The good news is, I started said book Friday and managed to get the short prologue and the first two scenes of Chapter 1 written. Words cannot express what a difference even that little bit has made in my overall mood. Stress levels are definitely lower, and I’m actually smiling again.ย 

I have #GuestDayTuesday posts scheduled for several more weeks, and will definitely be reblogging Bad Moon Rising posts through the month’s end, and Story Empire posts always, so it won’t be completely empty here. I plan to touch base at least weekly, and I’ll try to find time for other goodies here and there, too, though I’m not going to promise when or how often. Once I’ve made substantial progress on this story, I’m sure things will starting heading back to normal, but until then, I hope you’ll all understand if you see less of me online for a few weeks.ย 

Thanks so much, and now, the Painter Brothers are demanding my attention. They have some interesting things happening in their lives, and some new characters coming into play. Must. Go. Write.ย 


Yes I know these three guys are really actors, but in MY world,
they are Hunter, Forrest, and Jackson Painter, and I’veย 
truly missed them! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Okay, maybe not quite time for sparkling and shining, but how about
smiling or laughing? That’s doable, right?ย  So have at it!
๐Ÿ˜€

Being a huge believer that duct tape can fix anything, that last one is my personal favorite. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  Hope you found a couple you enjoyed, too! And there you have it for this week, folks. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Moon’s Day!
