Catching Up . . .  

Today, for "Theme Thursday" meme, the topic for this week is Eye-Catcher:

This certainly has a tendency to be an eye-catcher as you're driving down the road.    There's nothing like a gigantic ear of corn in the middle of a field to catch your attention.

I'm very late on my "Ten On Tuesday" meme.

The topic for this week is: "Ten Things You Look for in a Mate"


1.    Is compassionate, sincere, considerate and loving
2.    Has a slightly sick sense of humor
3.    Has similar interests in the arts (theatre, movies, books, etc.)
4.    Is interested in what I have to say
5.    Loves animals
6.    Likes moonlit nights, sitting outdoors, with or without words
7.    Likes thunderstorms
8.    Is honest, faithful and generous
9.    Is passionate in all aspects of life
10.    "Gets" me and understands where I'm coming from

I'm also late on my " Wednesday Mind Hump" meme.

The topic for this week reads as follows: "Typewriter Day.    In honor of the first patent on the typewriter ... wait, what's a typewriter?    Is that anything like a keyboard?    Okay, now we're talking.    Using the letters K-E-Y-B-O-A-R-D, tell us something about your blog or your blogging habits."

K- keeping a schedule to write daily is difficult, whether blogs or other work!
E- expecting more feedback than I'm getting, and feeling a little down about that.
Y- yearning to express my true southern charms and graces (sometimes, I miss the boat and express less-than-debutant emotions - Oh, MY!).
B- believing that my blog will grow into something greater-than-great (yeah, right!).
O- obsessing over making my blog the best it can be!
A- addicted to blogging, even when I don't do it on a daily basis.
R- reading other blogs and being inspired by other writers.
D- digging deep to find inspiration for occasional "writer's block."

"This week's hump - an even dozen of "I say ___, you think ___""

01. stroke my ego
02. sketch book
03. poke salad    (Southerners will understand!)
04. doh Homer Simpson, natch!
05. tongue tied
06. post office
07. twirl batons
08. fore duck (okay, a golf reference - sue me)
09. cup and saucer
10. curly sue
11. swim ming with the fishes
12. snooze button

"For extra fun, hump this:
Think of an item ...
... don't tell us what the item is.    Now, describe that item in brief paragraph (the size, the color, etc) but don't give it away.    Okay, now you're ready to hump it up.    Replace the name of the item with the word "hump".    Other players will come to your blog and try to guess what your hump is.    Tomorrow morning, add the answer to your hump and for big fun add a picture."

My "hump" is long (15" - 20") and always wet.    My "hump" is a mottled brown and beige color, almost freckled or cheetah spotted.    My "hump" likes to stand on its' head and blow bubbles.    My "hump" can move really fast when excited.    Can you guess what my "hump" is?!?!?!?

current mood:    Relaxed (after my last massage before my masseuse moves out of State - a sad day, actually!)
current music:    Culture Club's Greatest Hits

This Author's Profile

♪   I am

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
