Totally Random and Somewhat Amusing


If it’s not one thing… I’m sure at some point or another I’ve started a post like this before. In fact if I have, it’ll probably show up in the “see also” previews below this post. And the truth is, I hate being negative. So I’ll just get this over and done with. It’s really not that bad. In fact it probably hasn’t even been worth all this intro to it.

You know I had a bug bite the other day that made my hand swell? Well, that’s better. Now I have a sore on the very tip of my “d” finger. Why do I refer to my finger as my “d” finger? It only hurts when I type. No idea what the problem is. Can’t see anything except a painful blister. Yeah, wasn’t worth the intro.

In other news:

I used a sprint (set a timer for 10 minutes and just typed until the buzzer went off) to kick-start my novel writing. I got less than 400 words written in that 10 minutes, but it got me back into my story. I managed to write another 1,600 words today. The moral of the story is, sprints work when you’re stuck. It’s kind of like stream of consciousness that no one will ever read.

Every time I see “Cookie Policy” on a website I think about my own cookie policy – don’t buy them if I don’t want to gain weight. And definitely not if I go to the store hungry.

How is it that people think by writing f*ck instead of fuck no one will be offended? Is an asterisk any less offensive than a “u” just because it looks like a pretty flower? Okay, maybe it is.

Getting back to not wanting to write about miserable things, I’m actually a funny person most of the time. You can tell by my humorous fiction over at my fiction blog. Oh, and the novelette I’ll be (hopefully) publishing next week! It’s a light, romantic comedy that you’ll be able to read over a lunchtime or two. On sale soon for just $0.99 at Amazon and Kobo. Watch out for my celebratory post when the details are finalized!

It’s hard to be funny when you’re under pressure to be though, isn’t it? Waaay back when my SoCS prompt was fairly new, I made the prompt for the week “funny.” We all found it difficult to write about anything that was laugh-out-loud funny, so most of us wrote about something peculiar instead.

Knock, knock! Hang on, that one doesn’t work very well in a post. Why did the chicken cross the road?

  1. Why did the pervert cross the road?


  2. Being a klutz, who frequently injures herself while insisting she’s just ‘gettin’ er done’ (whatever the ‘er’ is that week – day – minute…) I can relate – πŸ™‚ Ah well – sore finger and 1,600 words? Congrats – πŸ™‚


  3. I thiught it crossed the road because of the mean and horroble narcissistic rooster…NO? Have I been misled all these years?
    Or is because as my neighbour once surmised, there was a better looking rooster across the road….

  4. Sorry about your d finger. My new anxiety symptom is a numb pinkie. Yay me. lol
    I never have understood the sh1t people do to make it look like they’re not $wear!ing. I really don’t. I now and again end up typing eff those effers when it seems the person is not swearing. I like to think we are adults…
    Glad the sprints paid off! πŸ˜€
    Are chickens still crossing the road? I had hoped they’d all gotten settled…

    • A numb pinky? My first thought is, have you had an elbow injury lately? Sounds like a funnybone nerve.
      Not all adults at the same age are at an equal age. Does that make sense?
      I think as long as there are chickens and roads, there will be crossings. πŸ˜›
      Thanks, Joey. πŸ™‚
