Tell Me About It

I had an actual post underway. Darn near finished, in fact. And then my computer showed its butt and shut down the program I was using -- as it does all too frequently. When, when, when will I ever learn to Save, Save, Save continually? So, anyway, FTS. We'll just play today. And let me make this disclaimer: I have no idea what this post will actually look like because now the freakin' Preview thingy won't work. Stupid damn Blogger. I don't care if it is free. If you're going to offer a service, it ought to work -- at any price.

And then -- and then the power went out. Who put the curse on me? Take it off! Now!!

Side Notes From the Weird Side:

- If you have a string hanging off your pants, it's probably not a good idea to stand in front of a mirror and guide a pair of scissors toward it. Yeah, you can stab yourself. But hey, not to worry -- there was no blood.

- I think it's very weird to look in my rearview mirror and see someone in the car behind me, totally alone, grinning like a loon. And they keep on grinning through several stoplights. I'm not sure if I should be concerned that it was -- a judge.

Despite Blogger's obstinate weirdness, I did manage to salvage some Words Gone Wild. If they save, they save. If Blogger eats them -- again -- I hope it chokes on them.

suppost to - Compost made of support hose.

disperage - Dispersing people according to age group.

anticdote - A cure for annoying (and embarrassing) eye tics.

jonesying - A really bad craving.

summery judgment - A court case decided between June and the first day of fall.

coothness - Fairly well-mannered old coots.

His post do not show - And once again, good underwear saves the day!

If you came with a warning label, what would it say?

Serena Joy is a radioactive squirrel!!



How cool are you?

Am I cool or uncool? [CLICK]
You are Cool!
You're pretty cool! People look at you and think.. 'wow.. that person is cool!' Congratulations. Use your position wisely and teach the dorks below you a thing or two. There's nothing like recruiting a cool person.

How sane are you?

How INSaNe are you?
Quirky - You are only insane very rarely and when you do go insane it is hilarious.
'How Insane are You?' at

You Are 89% Passionate, 11% Compassionate

You are a truly passionate person, and for you, love is a drug.
When you're in love, you lose all grip on reality. And it's a wild ride.
Although falling in love is vivid experience for you, it's sometimes *too* intense.

Couldn't be all of that JavaScript you've got running on your page. JS is cool, but it's only single threaded. I don't want to know where you got stabbed, but it sounds potentially dangerous. Only reason I'd be worried about a judge grinning is if I were about to be processed through the system. Its the axe murderers you've got to worry about.

And if Charles is pregnant, its not me.

Charles said...

scary's looking a bit pudgy around the old waistline, BTW.

Roxan said...

Moderately Insane - You are unexpectedly insane in small bursts but rational the rest of the time. You are terrifying.

I like being insane. LOL

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Charles. If Scary's getting pudgy, I didn't do it. And I'm glad to hear that neither you nor I got you in trouble.:-)

The JS, I don't know about. It's always been there. These Blogger gremlins only started in the past couple of days, and Preview just disappeared last night.

I kind of nicked myself in the side, but it's okay. I'm just glad I wasn't using an axe on the string.

Serena Joy said...

I rather like being insane, too, Roxan. It conveniently explains -- and excuses -- a lot.:-)

Charles said...

An axe sharp enough to cut threads? Are you sure that mirror wasn't at an angle so the grin you saw was your own?

ThatGreenyFlower said...

Ok--I'm cool. I'm 51% passionate, 49% compassionate. And I'm only somewhat insane. That seems about right.

Variant E said...

I HATE rewriting posts because they got lost. I just do them on a word processor and paste them in to avoid that now.

Serena Joy said...

Now I'm not sure, Charles. I may have gone through the looking glass. I'm being stalked by a large white rabbit wearing shades and a ball cap. :-)

Greeny, you are cool, babe. And somewhat insane in the good kind of way. :-)

I should do that from now on, too, VE. So, you leave for Africa tomorrow? Have a blast! :-)

Charles said...

Harvey? Or Hef's buddy?

Serena Joy said...

I'm not sure, Charles, and I'm afraid to ask. I think it might be Harvey, though -- because of the deep voice.

Pink said...

ha. pink comes with explicit lyrics.

i'm not surprised.

sorry about the blogger. i hate when that happens.


Serena Joy said...

I'm not surprised, either, you saucy girl.:-)

Serena Joy said...

I have no idea what any of that means, Charles. I am practically illiterate when it comes to computer-speak. Harvey keeps talking to me, which is weird enough, but he doesn't answer questions. How are the scripts generated and where/how do they show up?

BTW, my Blogger problems have all disappeared now. I even have the Preview thingy back.

littlebirdblue said...

I just can't get past the fact that you're a radioactive squirrel. I mean. I thought I knew you...

Serena Joy said...

I thought I knew myself, too, LBB. The thingy says it's true, so I guess it must be. :-)

Queenie said...

Fancy that,I'm super cool,quirky and 87% passionate......
I came to see a '55' and got a full health report!!!

RexZeitgeist said...

You are Super-Cool!
Woah! Step back - the future's so bright for you it's blinding me! You are the coolest of the cool. Everyone looks up to you as the benchmark for being coooool. The fonze was your grandfather. Any cooler and you'd freeze! WOO it's chilly in here.

I think the last awnser got me that rating!

My cat is a female, she only meows at me when is in the mood for love or hungry.....

G-Man may actually be a Spider-Human Hybrid!!!

...Serena? Step into my parlor.xoxox

I had trouble editing my post this morning. I couldn't get into the html page, turns out I had to hold the arrow just below the box and the majic hand appeared.

No smoking around top cat. Thankyou for your co-operation.

Trée said...

My warning label: Beware, cavity inducing sweetness ahead. :-D

Serena Joy said...

Sorry, Queenie, I haven't attempted the 55s. I guess I'm too long-winded.:)

Rex, you must have really sweet-talked those quiz thingies. Well, except for the "terrifying" deal.:) Your new icon is very cool, by the way.

G-man! You know I'm scared of spiders. There are none lurking in your parlor, are there?:-)

Tre'e, no problema, I have a good dentist.:)

Serena Joy said...

TC, the -- the hand?! LOL. Blogger seemed back to normal last night, but when it's having temper tantrums it does suck. Big time.:)

Corn Dog said...

42% insane thankfully.

Serena Joy said...

Good to know, CD! Insane people are our friends.:-)
