Monday: Post-Moon Madness

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

I had occasion to hear those lyrics over the weekend. What a beautiful (and timeless) song.

I exaggerated the post title today, of course. From all appearances, there was all in all very little moon madness afoot. I don't know about you, but the usual full moon mayhem pretty much bypassed me this month. As far as I can tell, I suffered no ill effects at all. There is the possibility that this is evidence that things that will set me off can happen with or without the moon. Hmmm. Fancy that.

Maybe something happened that I don't know about. If it did, I don't want to know. Ignorance is sometimes bliss. And honey, I do like my bliss.

So, how about y'all? Any full moon episodes to report? Any wildly wonky moods? Any monumental weirdness happen to you?

You want to hear wonky? TWISTED LINGUISTICS has wonky Words Gone Wild for you today. In spades. And they all come directly from that zonky "editor" person who's about to sever my last nerve.

Americam made - Identified via a US web cam.

apoloogize - One lollapalooza of an "I'm sorry."

professionalizm - Lizards in business attire.

apprecaite - I have no clue. What do you guys think?

foreighner - No clue here; what think you?

flamboyuant - Flaming bouffant hairdo.

creamated - Adding milk to the fiery furnace method of body disposal.

technicology - A new technology which incorporates drugs into the specs and prototypes.

no moon madness sightings here.
This one seemed to scoot on by without messing with

Charles said...

I'm sorry did you say moon madness, or noon madness?

I think you're making a mistake by not wanting to know what may have affected things. Don't you think it would be a good thing to know how to bypass the madness when you hear/see/feel or otherwise perceive it coming?

apprecaite - to eat a fruit related to, but not a plum, peach, nectarine.

foreighner - 80s hair band that never had a hit, due to the misspelling of the band name on their recording contract.

I'm always mad, but the moon makes a good excuse.

Jack K. said...

apprecaite-I just love apricots.

foreighner-it must be some esoteric golfing term. Perhaps it means, Look out, loose ball followed by a flying nine iron.

Serena Joy said...

Good to hear, TC. I'm glad you scooted through with no ill effects.:)

You have a point, Charles. On the other hand, if it didn't affect me directly, nope, I don't wanna know. Call me Ms. Ostrich.:) Good definitions, dude.

I know, Roxan. Still, if one is going to do something, it's good to have a moon to blame it on. God help all the morons who do stuff in between the moons.:)

Spot on definitions, Jack. I can see it -- a flying niner. Or maybe it's a screaming eighter.:-)

yes, i'll say!

i awoke to a strange & powerful urge to eat corn flakes for breakfast!!!

dear serena -- am i losing my mind?!?


VE said...

How about my ex backing my car into a trailer and denting the liftback door. $650 in damage. Would that qualify?

Oh and then there was the hispanic guy wearing the long dress, a big down coat, carrying a purse. And this is deep in the suburbs...

Scary Monster said...

It were all madness at the monster lair, but then again it always be like that.


Serena Joy said...

I don't think so, /t. I wake to cornflake cravings many mornings. If that means loss of mind, then perhaps we should start looking for group rates at some nice "homes.":-)

Oops, VE. Clearly, you didn't get off so easily. I don't suppose you got a picture of the Hispanic guy? I'd like to see that!:-)

Ah, but Scary, I suspect that madness at the Monster Lair is great fun!:-)

I disagree with this statement: Those kinds of companys with that caliber of boss isn't found much today...'cause I work at eZAKlee that kind of company with eZAKlee that caliber of boss. Seriously. They're more commonly than you might infer. ;>

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Greeny. Is you imputing that my cents's is now unfailing? I are resembling that. They isn't of the highest caliber but they ain't shooting blank's neither.:-)

G-Man said...

What a coincidence!
I heard those same lyrics!
I sure loved that song..
No crazy shit so far, but...
The moon
can make you behave like a loon
But it also may lead you to spoon..
And then my dear, you could swoon..In June?
See you real soon...Galen

Serena Joy said...

Wow, Galen, that IS a coincidence. Don't you just love synchronicity? I'm delighted to hear that you escaped moon madness -- and thoroughly delighted that you gave me poetry today, totally unprovoked!:)

People are being really really nice to me. That's insane.

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you


What the heck? Those are SONG LYRICS? But my boss said he ALWAYS writes my reviews from scratch. Geez. I'm beginning to question if there is ANY originality left in the workplace.

Charles said...

You have something waiting for you on my blog.

Serena Joy said...

LOL, CD. Maybe they're being so nice because they're busy learning how to spell those 4-letter words for graffiti.:-)

Puggy, you could report your boss for plagiarism and nab his job.:)

Charles! Thank you! I certainly wasn't expecting that. That's so darn nice of you.
