An Eternity of Seconds

 It is now the next day. I awoke with a familiar gnawing feeling in my gut.
I frantically scanned my thoughts in a desperate bid to discover which one of them was causing the gnawing.
And then I realised. Yes, it was The Blank Rectangle! Hurrah!
I hopped out of bed & without giving thought to my morning cup of 'Twinings Afternoon Tea flavour tea, I scampered to the computer, clicked on to Blogger's 'New Post' & then clicked 'Add Photos'.
I waited in breathless anticipation. An Eternity of Seconds ticked by. And then a  Blank Rectangle appeared. My heart sank. Who would look at my blog now if there were no photos? I lamely asked.
And then......and then, the photo above appeared.
I Am Saved. Hallelujah!
Here are the photos minus the Dark Brown Pudding one I asked you to imagine in my last post.
I hope I have done justice to your Imagination. I think that unlikely.
The first one was taken by my friend Dark Star Maud after a wonderful Holiday Lunch yesterday in Newtown which is suburb  chock-a-block full of graffiti.

I totally love Graffiti. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Lawbreaker although I did find myself secretly texting yesterday while I was stopped at the lights in my car. I couldn't help it. I was under the spell of the Texting Fairy. Or should I call her the SMS Fairy? I wonder what The Correct Term is?
As I said earlier, I'm wearing Guilt Black. From top to toe. All thrifted from 'BednobsEtc'. And, may I say, All Designer Brands but you'd never know it.
1. Agnes B lambswool turtleneck. I totally marvel at the word Turtleneck. It's fabulous & completely appropriate when referring to My Neck.
2. Zimmerman lacy skirt. Luckily I had  Black 'Jeggings' on underneath. At least that's what they were called on the label  at 'K-Mart'. Another great term.
3. Anne Klein Mules. Yet Another great term.
4. Toy Silver Heart which cozily protects my own Bleeding Heart.

 Here's the next photo I previously asked you to imagine. I bet it's nothing like what you thought because I omitted to tell you that the owner of the car had artfully placed a scary Halloween (or is it a Nasty Politician?) style mask on the headrest. The dog doesn't seem too frightened. Only probably a bit annoyed that he's yet again left in the car.

Lastly, here's me in not quite total black. I'm showing it to you because I bought the top on tuesday for eight bucks at 'K-Mart'. It's the first new item (besides leggings & undergarments) that I've bought in quite some time. I must say that it was a thrill to put something on that I absolutely knew that  no one had died in it before me. My only concern is that it has a Blouson waist which always has a tendency to make me look Blousy. Slightly Slutty, Yes, but Blousy, Never.

I too am amused by the word mules. To me they are the oddest looking shoe, but they are so comfortable! One word that truely irks me however, is 'gifted', as in: 'I was gifted this purse' (see, there I go being irked!). Sue, please put me out of my misery, is this a true word?

And, you could *never* look blousy!

lovely to hear from you! As an English teacher who Strangely Struggles with correct usage, I am not the right person to verify whether or not 'gifted' can be used in this way. But I am frequently amazed at the move to turn ordinary words into verbs - e.g. you can't watch a cooking show these days without hearing, 'let's plate it up'. Donna Hay is a great fan of 'plating up'.
ps. I just remembered my best friend in California introduced the term,'re-gifting' to me & my daughter. We've embraced it Big time!

see you there! said...

Oh goodie, more black! I have to do that trick with the mask in the car - made me laugh.

Bet you thought THIS post slipped past me, didn't you?! No such luck. It's been on my "to do" list for about 6 days now.

Finally I "to did". I'm thinking about getting a mask to put in MY car! The possibilities are limitless.

Some graffiti ought to be legal. Maybe a "Graffiti Park"?

It's painful to read of the lambswool turtleneck on these 90+ degree days here...but I understand the fascination with them. I really do.

Well, we're off to Buffalo to see gardens. Hope to come back with many workable ideas for OUR yard.

Carry on.
