This & That Including What Ails

Growing Up Years

How many of us remember this?

With thanks to Walt Disney and the creators of these cartoon characters for creating Bugs Bunny and Tweety Bird…they remind me…how complicated bread is today in my lil red dot.

We have just about every type of bun, ranging from sweet to savory to plain toast or exotic flavors πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„

I also remembering reciting my alphabets like Tweety Bird….😊😊

February 29th & A Monday Too!

image

Today is a leap day….February 29th, 2016!

I received this laugh from Chicken. I do miss her as it has been a while since I had a chuckle with her.

Work was not good as Electrical Lord had me and 2 others in a sermon from 1.30pm till 9.30pm.

I was busy and missed my lunch munch of a sandwich as by the time I realised I needed to eat, his lordship summoned me. Bah!!

By 9.30pm I was having gastric pains and thankfully he released me.

As I was hurriedly popping my gastric pill to ease the pain, moron Evil Witch calls out like hailing a cab asking to see me.

She was chewed by his Lordship as she wanted him to sign his life away on a very expensive bill.

His Lordship asked me to oversee her submission before she re-submits to him for his pawprint.

I told her firmly that my gastric was acting up and that I was hungry, needing to go off!

She ignored me and said “5 minutes only…Will see you with IT guy”

If I could slap her there and then, I would! I gave her a virtual slap πŸ˜‰

I ignored her and left with my voice saying…tomorrow.

I betcha if she was to be hung at the gallows, this moronic being would do a last selfie like the picture belowπŸ˜‚

What a day my monday was! Plus a memorable leap year indeed with morons!

Sadly Fashion Lord has not called and I am wondering if this opportunity has eluded me 😒

Perhaps….a miracle like below could happen πŸ˜‰

Sigh……looks like I gotta get me self some attention….

My meals are not fancy plated!

My meals take 15 minutes top to cook!

My meals are hits and misses!

My meals are my survival eats!

My meals are cooked in a small kitchen in “A” layout from sink to fridge to stove!

My meals are comfort foods most times.

My meals appeal only to me, myself and I!

I Write…Therefore I Am To Some…

I confess. I am not a bard…not even remotely near one!

Yet, when Electrical Lord needs a speech, a publication or a marketing spiel…I am suddenly the most sought after!

Hmm…I rechecked my designation..I am human resources…not marketing not corporate communications!

Minion me is people person πŸ˜‰

I only feel needed when illiterate Lords want to “sound” good and be seen by public as “up there”!

I guess I am their Spin Doctor or I borrow the phrase by my ex boyfriend’s minions to describe their boss, my Mr X – “perfuming the pigs” for robust sales! HA!! πŸ˜‚

I am now to produce a one page write up for a journal publication, tooting his horns of glory.

BUT…my proverbial BUT…(THOUGH I PREFER ” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚BUTT”)…what do I know about the Lord.

To write about him, I must know his inner most thoughts and aspirations. I must also know his future, created on foundations of his history or I call “past”

He thinks I can do comprehension at will.

I will, if I knew what I write gels with his thoughts.

Trouble is, I don’t.

Moron wants me to write fiction I guess. Ha ha!

Ah well….quill in hand.. anon…write I must…pen my thoughts furiously…get it over and done with I guess πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday folks as I weave a web of deceit on paper for the LordπŸ˜‚

Perspectives

image

I read this and it gave me food for thought.

2 mothers with a child each.

But the deliverance is profoundly different.

To me, one mum tells her child “if you do not study well, you will end up like him” – a road sweeper.

It hinges on the need to be educated. No education, no future as no career.

How troll but true as every or any mum would want a literate child in a cushy job.

But the truth is….in today’s new economy, education is a paper qualification.

Our children in lil red dot are book smart, not street smart! No skills set!

This leaves a huge gap for unglamorous jobs like plumbers, electricians and cleaners or sweepers.

I think, in time, we will be facing an acute shortage such that the salaries of these unglamorous jobs will rise to be the best paying jobs ever!

If I had kids, I would let them take on a trade certificate.

Big bucks being an electrican and a plumber!

As for the other mum with her daughter, she motivates by asking her daughter to study hard and make a difference or improve the life of the sweeper.

2 different perspectives but with different aspects and approach.

One looks down on a dirty job and low grades it whilst the other, to me is like a pity party mindset.

I see this vocation as the future job topper! Instead of a pen, this employee will carry a huge “pen” – broom!!

Interesting picture and it made me think…..πŸ˜‰

Lullaby…My Style

How nice if I could bring a stress reliever to work…cool right?!

image

I always wondered about this lullaby and wondered whoever that composed this must be rather odd!

image

Why frighten the baby or toddler? I would be….bough breaks and baby with cradle falls!!

My version of a lullaby…

Sleep little Garfield,
Dream a foodie field,
Crumbs on Garfield,
Bib on Fur acts as shield!

Garfield will never fall,
Always a fur ball,
Beckoned by my call,
Standing tall!

Snooze…dream..safe in my arms,
Never faced with harm,
Garfield lives a life of charm,
Never be alarmed!

Garfield…Garfield…always my inanimate furball ha ha!
