Okay, so yesterday we got this wobbly hand cart moving. Oh, I know the cart has an odd wheel count, and that the road is rutted and frankly a little too uphill for my taste, but there it is. I’m made of stern stuff.
What’s that, you say? What am I talking about? Okay, come closer. But just so you know, I can’t explain this every day. Nicky and Mike over at We Work For Cheese are running a 28 day writing challenge. It’s not too late to take part, though you should know there’s a petition going round, begging it to stop.
Actually, it’ll be a lot of fun. Really.
Hey, anybody wanna ghost-write me ‘til March?

I certainly identify with getting dizzy while staring down from atop my VISA bills. I think they're taller than York Minster.ReplyDelete
*sigh* I hear ya, Dufus. And that was just December's. IndigoDelete
I used to get dizzy staring down from my VISA bills but that stopped once I climbed my MC bills.ReplyDelete
I would love to see the Humber Bridge and York Minster. But mostly, I would really love to see a squiddrel. I've only ever seen pictures and seeing one in real life would be amazing.
Oh, and I have to tell you, I love the word numpty.
Hey Nicky! And if you stacked our Visa and MC bills together, we could give Felix Baumgartner a run for his money. With regards to the squiddrel, be careful what you wish for; I've had to fish Max out of its reluctant jaws on more than one occasion. Have you seen this, tho? Indigo xDelete
OMG! How could I have missed that video. Unless I didn't miss it and it just slipped away in one of the dark and dusty crevices of what used to my mind. Either way, it was a total joy to behold. :)Delete
Bless you Jayne =) xDelete
How did that never reach Canadian news outlets?! iDifficult AND a squiddrel and nary a word about it in our international news! Shameful.Delete
By the way, I didn't catch the name of that extremely handsome news anchor...
Well Nicky, if I said it was hushed up, I'd be breaking my Non-Disclosure Agreement. As for the anchor, nobody of note ;)Delete
I think your little limbic portion of your brain is probably a little dangly. They can probably put a couple anchor-type stitches in it and you will feel right as rain. I think, at the very least, you won't have it bother you again. :)ReplyDelete
Hey Mariann! Hey, it's not just the limbic portion, believe me. And at my age, my brain is not the only thing. Lovely to see you here, I'm just about to come say hi at your place. Indigo =)Delete
I just thought of a dangly limbic portion as hilarious for some reason. I'm sure the alcohol had something to do with it. You tilt your head up...the limbic portion dangles a bit, so you staple it so it doesn't dangle. I don't know - it just makes me laugh a little. Heaven knows what the limbic portion of your brain does...but I don't think it's good if yours is dangling like that. ;)Delete
Oh, at 44 I have so many vestigial dangly bits, it's hard to keep track. But it tickled me too, so thank you =)Delete
First of all, where is this petition? Where do I sign? ;)ReplyDelete
Second, the York Minster? Is that like Notre Dame? Are you secretly a hunchback?
Hi Bryan, Mister Unfinished, Sir! Last time I saw my peti... *cough* I mean THE petition, it was being coloured in by Dufus. Unhelpful, but Nicky might enjoy the colour choices. There is still hope. IndigoDelete
And yes, at 6'5" (197cm), I am the world's tallest hunchback. But as my old dad used to say, "I don't care about your back, get those bells rung!".Delete
I guess you don't want to go climbing lighthouses? Other than a plane, my highest venture was the Empire State Building. That was amazing. I'm lucky though, not to have experienced vertigo. As long as I feel safe from falling, I'm good.ReplyDelete
Hey Linda! I enjoyed the Empire State very much, but as you say, no danger there. I'm okay with over-the-head-restraint rollercoasters too. As long as I'm on them, of course, and not standing somewhere close to the base of a tall loop. *ick* IndigoDelete
I loathe looking down from great heights, greater than say five feet or so. It's not that I get dizzy. I just get that awful feeling that I'll leap. What is the Latin word for "leaper?" But I can look up all day long.ReplyDelete
Hey Jayne! I'm not so good standing on a chair. I think it's safe to say I'm not Batman. *sigh* Dammit. Indigo xDelete
This is why it is a good thing that I am short and don't wear heels.ReplyDelete
Hey LaughingMom! It solves many vertigo problems, it's true. Ironically, I am 6'5" (197cm). Bummer. IndigoDelete
Oh my, you're certainly not lacking incentive to hold on, my friend. If you hold on long enough, I'm sure the squiddrel will get bored and go look for a badger to badger. Just don't look up.ReplyDelete
Hey Ziva! No such luck, they're somewhat dogged creatures, despite their lack of canine genes. Besides, Z, nobody messes with the badgers. Roth xDelete
Lurking squiddrels can definitely help you overcome a little vertigo. But, surely Max will stop by soon to run interference for you so you can nip out past the squiddrel for a pizza or something.ReplyDelete
Hey Paula! Max did once manage to distract one by ordering a pizza, but that was only because it ran off to eat the delivery guy. Roth xDelete
OK. I am officially going to spend my entire life searching for a squiddrel. My ENTIRE LIFE.ReplyDelete
Hey Katherine! We'd be happy for you take this one off our hands, tho it costs a fortune to feed unless you have regular fast food deliveries. It doesn't eat the takeout, just the delivery guys. Indigo =)Delete
And then there's the vertigo that comes on when you are lying down, perfectly still. Yee-hah! The world, she swirls around! And THAT's why I have a one-drink limit. Okay, maybe a two-drink limit. Now, if there were squiddrels involved, it would probably be time to cut back even further :)ReplyDelete
Hey Jenn! As my mum says, "never stand up while the room's in motion." Mine was an odd upbringing. Roth xDelete
Vertigo ... don't get it often, but when I do, I hate it. Oh so much do I hate it. Often enough, though, I wonder if mine is more of just being dehydrated as it seems to come when I haven't kept up on the water intake.ReplyDelete
Well, that and when I think too much of how life has sucked recently!
Hey P.J.! Hydration is important, and I attribute my boyish good looks to it. Well, that and the liposuction. Sad to hear about life sucking, but keep photographing it for us, please. IndigoDelete
You'd absolutely hate New York City.ReplyDelete
Hey Mike! I wasn't fussed, tho I tried to avoid standing too close to anything tall. I admired the Chrysler Building from a distance; beautiful. IndigoDelete
A loss of balance is always unnerving, regardless of whether you're looking up or down. I admit I haven't thought much about dizziness induced by looking up. The funny thing is, I bet this will happen to me next time I find myself looking up from the base of a tall building. Reading people's blogs not only exposes you to new ideas, but it also exposes you to new psychoses through the empathetic power of suggestion.ReplyDelete
Hey KZ! You're right about that. Last time I was over at Pearl's place, I got the urge to lie around the house in a ballgown and drink room-temperature gin. You should try it, it's life-altering. IndigoDelete
Good idea!! Also, this guy hangs out in your yard a little too much! Time to start charging rent or something! Or at least make it dress up in a maid costume and vacuum your house!ReplyDelete
Hey Kato! You win the prize for the most disturbing mental image of the day! Tho the scullery and parlour do need a little light dusting. Roth xDelete
