Let The Sun Shine In

It’s going to be gloriously warm most of the week. I know it isn’t really (not yet), but it feels like Spring. In times like these, a lady’s fancy turns to

* Open windows
* Adding some color to fish-belly white skin
* Cute sandals
* Lakes and beaches
* Frothy little-nothing dresses in soft colors
* Ice cream and iced tea

I suppose we’re all coping okay with the time change. I haven’t heard of any freak-outs. I myself did all right this morning. A little adjustment of my blinds and curtains last night allowed the sun to shine in as soon as it rose, so it wasn’t nearly as hard to get up as I had feared.

I hear that McDonald’s is introducing a new hamburger, the Angus Burger, a monstrous 1/3-pound thing with close to 1,000 calories. Do we really need bigger and bigger food? Aren't a lot of people already bigger and bigger enough?

Here's one more piece of evidence that things are all wacked out all over the world. When a farmer in eastern India noticed that his chickens were disappearing, he figured jackals or dogs were to blame. And then he caught his 1-year-old calf in the act. The calf was scarfing down the poultry, and veterinarians are at a complete loss for an explanation since cows are herbivores. They aren't carnivorous and don't eat meat, fish, or ... fowl.

Today’s Twisted Linguistics demo:

ignoranuses - Dumb asses.

who'se - Pet name for the game of "Whoopsies."

inflcit - That the dude was getting fleeced was pretty plain to see.

spanked my interest - No explanation needed there.

yeap - A Leap Year cheer.

I'm feed up with it all - Somebody who's going to have one of those big hamburgers.

How big is your mouth?

Your Mouth is a Little Big

You're not a total tell all, but you don't hide who you are either.
You've struck a good balance between discretion and sharing.
People know you fairly well, at least on a superficial level.
But you save your most revealing secrets for your best friend... or no one!

***You Don't Have a Big Mouth***

In fact, you like to keep your life very private.
You figure that your personal life is no one's business.
And if people try to pry, they'll end up unsuccessful.
You're a big mystery to people - and that's fine by you!

Pretty much true. I don't let people know what I don't want them to know.

We have sun today, but that could change. Probably did while I was posting this. LOL

Mmmmm....sundress season.

A chicken eating cow. That's a new one.

Serena Joy said...

Yes indeed, TFG. Sun dresses are exactly what I have in mind.

Mysterious is best, Roxan.

Isn't that weird, Steve? I guess I'm weird, too, because I'm really wondering how the calf gets his chicken. And what does he do with the feathers? The beaks? The feet?

* Cute sandals...

Hehehe...SJ's still on a fashion roll...

***Your Mouth is a Little Big***

yeah, but it's only my own stuff I'm blabbing about.

Perhaps that cow is hoping to be a new spokecow for Chik Fil-A?

I wore my new adorable sandals for a couple of hours this morning. Not warm enough yet here.

And they hurt my feet, dammit.

I woke up before my bloody alarm this morning. I thought for sure I would sleep those extra minutes today, but no. I was up three minutes before my alarm went off. Been beat all day. Glad you are having Florida weather this week. Enjoy it and remember, come August you can mock me as I melt.

"Your mouth is a little big"
Does that mean me be in a constant state of oxymoronic verbiage?

Is me only allowed to eat jumbo shrimp?
When me goes to Hawaii will me be escaping from the burning snow of the mountains?
Can Me get some dry ice for me whiskey?
Maybe because it's warm me can get out of me dress pants.

I can't wait until me gets to tak e a swim in the clear, fresh surf of the North Shore...

Serena Joy said...

I am, Littlebird.:) I guess my head's just in a girlie kind of place right now. It's Spring and all, you know.

Hey, DQ. Spokescow -- I like that. Damn, that reminds me -- I have an oven mitt with a cow on it who's saying "Eat More Chicken." Sorry your sandals hurt your feet. Maybe they'll feel better by the time it's really warm enough to wear them.

Kan, are you sick? You woke up early? That's not like you. I'm glad you didn't oversleep, though.

No, Scary, it simply means that you're well-equipped to eat one of those new Monster Burgers. LOL. I ALWAYS go for the jumbo shrimp. Who wants the little bitty things when you can have the big ones? I'm pretty sure it won't be snowing in Hawaii and you can swim as much as you want and live in shorts and swim trunks. No dress pants. How long are you staying?

Lee said...

That calf needs to go into therapy!

Serena Joy said...

I'd say so, Lee. I guess that would be -- psycowtherapy?:)

Hale McKay said...

...And remember when you order one of those Angus burgers, be sure to order a large diet cola to wash it down. (Gotta watch the weight.)

Serena Joy said...

For sure. And 2 Diet Cokes if you get the fries with that.:)

Liz said...

Ah but it is a gesture! I have diet coke with a great big meal: it makes me feel as if I'm trying!

Serena Joy said...

Liz, you're doing great! See, the key is the Diet Coke. It's a beautiful thing because the Diet Coke cancels out calories.

Liz said...

I didn't know that! I shall go out now and buy several large bottles of Diet Coke. And some chocolate.

Serena Joy said...

I'm buying Diet Coke today, too, Liz. And then I'm going to eat a whole chocolate cake. It's so freeing to know the Coke is on the job and will kill those calories on sight.:)
