One-Liner Wednesday & #JusJoJan 18/17 Prompt – For Fun

Do you have this problem?


I’m trying to give up sexual innuendos… but it’s hard… so hard.

NOTE: If you participate in this prompt, you do not have to follow in this week’s potentially sticky theme.


The rules for Just Jot It January are as follows:

1. It’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list) counts as a “Jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

2. The prompts will be posted every day at 2am my time (GMT -5). You don’t have to follow the prompt word, but this will be where you leave your link for others to see. Make sure you link your post to the correct day’s prompt. There will be a post like this every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday, and Saturday, when you’ll find the prompt on my usual Friday Reminder post for Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS).

2a. Since today is Wednesday, I challenge you to make your JusJoJan post a one-liner. If you don’t care to, or if you’ve already written your post, no problem. Remember, with One-Liner Wednesday you can write anything – it’s only a prompt to write one line, not necessarily to keep to the same theme as mine. The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

(i) Make it one sentence.

(ii) Make it either funny or inspirational.

(iii) Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

(iv) Have fun!

(v) Use our One-Liner Wednesday badge!

3. As long as your blog is on WordPress, you’ll be able to link via pingback. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! If you’re participating from another blogging host, just drop a link into the comment section. Note: The newest pingbacks and comments will be at the top.

4. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

5. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

6. The prompts are here both to remind you and to inspire you to write. However, you don’t have to use the prompt word of the day. You can link any kind of jot back here. Even your shopping list. Note: If it’s 18+ content, please say so in a comment with your link.

7. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge (above) in your post so that others can find your post more easily.

8. Have fun!

Guest Host Q and A: Inspired by ghostmmnc at teleportingweena!


Hi there! Shan Jeniah here, back one more time to thank you all for making my first-ever stint guest hosting a blog hop such a rewarding experience!

When Linda told me I could do a guest post, I struggled with what I would say. It only took two sentences to say thank you, and I don’t want to bore anyone. Then I realized how much I enjoyed the question-and-answer posts over at ghostmmnc’s blog, teleportingweena, like this one:

When I read them, I wanted to post my own answers…and so, here, the two things happily blended, and I can offer you a guest post that says a little about me without being a me-fest. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I didn’t do all fifty from this post; just as many as I felt like doing. Ready?

Off we go, then!

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

  • Open. There’s usually stuff in front of them, and I don’t want to move it.

Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?

  • No. I like my own better.

Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

  • I use a fitted sheet on the bottom; quilts above. I don’t tuck; I cocoon!

Have you ever stolen a street sign before?

  • No. Nor now, either.

Do you like to use post-it notes?

  • Sometimes. I used one in a fan fiction story once. =)

What is your biggest pet peeve?

  • Being peeved. Huge waste of my time.

Do you ever count your steps when you walk?

  • Yes.

Is it okay for guys to wear pink as a colour?

  • Who gets to decide this stuff? Let people wear what they want; who cares what’s in their pants?!

Whats your least favorite movie?

  • I don’t really have one. If I don’t care for a movie, I generally stop watching it.

What do you drink with dinner?

  • Water, or coffee.

What is your favorite food?

  • I love salads. Especially if I don’t need to make it myself.

What movie could you watch over and over and still love?

  • You’ve Got Mail; Turner and Hooch; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home; probably many others I’m not thinking of now.

Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?

  • I might. I’ve posted one censored nude on a blog. I don’t have a problem with non-exploitative nudity.

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?

  • Either a letter to my husband, or to my daughter.
