Hunkering In











This is my koala bear. He's cute, but he can't, of course, hold a candle to Mick.

I spent all day yesterday ungodly headachy and hormonal, and I had the freakin' hiccups last night. I'm not saying I blame it on the moon. I'm just ... saying. To be on the safe side, I'm laying low today, staying out of the range of full moon rays, trying not to get into any sticky situations, nothing I can't get out of. It's hard staying closeted in my office, though, when people want to chit-chat. I'd stay off the roads and out of public places after work, except that there are a couple of places I need to go. I'd stay shut up in my house this evening, but I know the phone will ring, or the doorbell will ding. Something. Whew! It's going to be harder than I thought. I'm sure there are modern-day hermits. I don't know how they do it. For tonight, I may try wrapping my head in the high-dollar tinfoil and see what happens.

Words Gone Wild have certainly fallen prey to the effects of the moon. There's plenty for TWISTED LINGUISTICS to play with. As a matter of fact, all of today's pickings come from that self-proclaimed "editor" person.

per say
volitale
beserk
I written dozends of reviews
belittleing
bird barth
the seventys

I can't possibly define these, so how about y'all give them a go? I'd love to see what you come up with.

I will endeavor to take on these two:

critisice - A cold-hearted critic.

Hers an easy one - She is a hussy.





You've Experienced 72% of Life


You have all of the life experience that most adults will ever get.
And unless you're already in your 40s, you're probably wise beyond your years.

***You've Experienced 60% of Life***


You have a good deal of life experience, about as much as someone in their late 20s.
You've seen and done enough to be quite wise, but you still have a lot of life to look forward to.


So that's why I look so young for my age! :P

Roxan said...

I think you should forget the tin foil and embrace your inner lunatic.
I did and I've been happy with my insanity ever since. :)

I don't know, Roxan. Last time I tried to embrace my inner lunatic, she slapped me.:-)

/t.? My goodness!:)

Trée said...

"It's going to be harder than I thought."

I hear that often. :-D

You know, I think whoever fluffed those pillows did a pretty good job. :-D

Serena Joy said...

LOL. There's an art to pillow fluffing. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you miss.:-)

G-Man said...

Sometimes you have to hit it 6 or 7 times before you get it right!
Serena...?
Did your Koala have an appendectomy?
Anyway..No howling tonight, you might scare your NFH!!!
xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Serena Joy said...

I know, Galen. Sometimes I have to try and try again, but eventually I get there. Usually. Hey, don't make fun of my little koala's seam, now. If I thought howling would scare the remaining NFH, I'd go outside and do it right now. It would be a little moot, though. She'll be gone in 8 days. Yippee! And arr-roooooo!!:-)

Sling said...

I keep a moon phase calendar on my blog precisely so that I can anticipate the physical and emotional changes that are bound to occur in myself,and the people around me.
Volitale- A story about little Gophers.

Serena Joy said...

The moon phase calendar is an excellent idea, Sling. That way, you're never caught off guard.

Finally, a definition! And a good one it is. Thanks!:)

Camille Alexa said...

LOL, Camille. You gave that just the right finishing touch -- or coup de gr�ce.

Travis Erwin said...

per say - Your speech is gonna cost you a dollar per say.

volitale - Let me tell you a story about a man named Jed.

beserk - The lyrics from an old song; Beserk, beserk, beserk.

I written dozends of reviews - And everyone falls asleep in the end.

belittleing - There is more than a little to do in the midst of being.

bird barth - Not to be confused with bird barf or bird bath, the barth of the bird tastes like chicken. Or was that oppossum?

the seventys - I can never remember whether it is i before e or the other way around, so I'll play it safe and keep they y.

Serena Joy said...

60% is pretty good, Travis. Congrats!:)

Will do, Mona. And your koalas sound adorable.:)

Excellent work defining those "words," Jack. Thanks!:)

Hmm, that's the same score as your's, I'd never have thought it, since to me, you seem more of a risk taker than I do. Especially since I think of myself as one of those hermit people which you thought might still exist.

Sorry about your headache, all of us in the know, know that to block the moon rays, you have to wrap your self with undeveloped photographic film. Then again the best thing to do is take the antidote, moonshine. :D

per say - once each time spoken.
"She slapped him, per say."

volitale - stories of University of Tennessee's students or alumni.
"Although it was stupid, it was a volitale."

beserk - A he-she who alternates names between Bessie and
Erkle.

I written dozends of reviews - DUH, who can make heads or... well, who could let that out of their head?

belittleing - The Zen of Little Ing, the chinese kid.

bird barth - Bird barf spoken by Beserk.

the seventys - greater than six and less than eight guys named Ty.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, NOW you tell me, Charles, that it's undeveloped film I should be using as a ray shield. Next month I'll try that and let you know how it works out.:)

I hope you realize you just made me snort coffee and half-chewed crackers all over myself with your definitions. LMAO!!:-)

Charles said...

Well, I hope it was amusement, rather than my stupidity. If so my work here is done, otherwise I have a big hole to try to climb out of.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, yes, I was HUGELY amused.:-)
