Gurrrrl my mind is cluttered too. Somebody stop me said in my Jim Carrey voice over voice. Y’all know I watch way too much TV or half watch as I sit with B in the living room and read (or try to read) while he watches. I’ve gotten pretty good at blocking out one thing or the other. My kids will tell you. They had a hard time getting my attention when I was reading. MOM! MOM! MOM! Then me: Huh, what? coming out of the fog of a good story. Boy, I’m talkative this morning. Anyway from a show earlier this week, not sure which one as I may or may not have been multitasking when I heard this gem that made me giggle.
Are you Ready? Heck ya, I’m ready, set, and go!!!!
some random line from a TV show that Jilly can’t remember the name of …
Sometimes we have the TV on just for noise but no one is truly paying much attention. Sunday, Bob’s Burgers was on and since my phone and iPad were charging, I heard this gem. Maybe it’s a gem to me despite me not liking the show all that much. The family had driven to a mountain look out for the perfect Christmas card picture. Of course, nothing went right. During the intensity of the situation, Louise quips …
“We’re out here freezing in the snow like a bunch of Jeremiah Johnsons”
Louise from Bob’s Burgers
And I snort laughed. You know those right?? When something is so funny it overtakes you. This could be a “guess you had to be there” moment. B didn’t think it was that funny and Lulu didn’t understand the reference. But me, Robert Redford as Jeremiah Johnson is a heartthrob. Hubba, hubba. And Haha!
Stop! Wait a minute. Fill my cup, put some liquor in it. Bruno Mars / Bhasker Jeffrey your lyrics speak to me 🙂
Well now, mighty early to be drinking. But when I saw Linda’s one liner and the words Bailey’s well why the hell not? Is that a boozy yule log? Oh the humanity! lol
Okay no drinking til after 5. Time to think, think, and think … a one liner from real life didn’t popped up this week. Instead I’ll quote from faux life aka fiction. I be reading y’all … 36 books this year. Not my most read year but waaayyyy better than 2020 when I couldn’t read to save my life. Which was sad because more often than more reading rescued me. So here we go …. my offering today
Linda mentions a weird moon and I just read that starting this Friday in the wee hours of the morning we will experience a partial lunar eclipse. One for the record books I believe. But they are predicting cloudy weather to obscure viewing in Florida. Hope Texas weather fairs better. When I was younger I set an alarm for these events. But now, I prefer sleep. lol.
Alrighty enough blathering about. Here is my offering today. Borrowed from the masterful Rod Serling.
I need to get it out of my gut … write it down. This is the way it began for me.
I stumbled across the above as I scrolled through Twitter last weekend. I knew I wanted it to be my one-liner. I sometimes refer to writing as releasing the hounds. Though lately, I find myself holding back. Time for a gut check. To join in, HERE are the rules and ping back.
