Looks like we made it …

Cue ear worm alert …

Or not 😂

Thanks Robbie Ann for giving us chaos. Thanks Linda for hosting.

Did I spell that right?

Chaos. A whirling dervish. That’s chaos. Just today I had a conversation with a coworker about something we are testing at work that’s organized chaos. Story of my life. Oh how I love living on the edge. Sure keeps things interesting.

Rules and Ping Back

Lauren gives us the prompt of finished.  And that we almost are … close … so close …

Check out her blog!  You’ll be glad you did!!  Thanks for hosting us once again Linda!

Speaking as someone who has a hard time letting go … of certain things only … I will never be finished.  So much work to do and so little time.  Ugh!  Creating a vortex of would’ve, could’ve, should’ve.  I created this mess and now it is up to me to finish it.

But then what will I do?  With all that extra time?  Oh the possibilities 🙂

This brief jot was brought to you by the addled mind of one J-Dub McGillicutty.  Happy Friday Eve!

As always, more to come.

I still keep wanting to write 2019.  Doh!  Oh well, let’s get this party started.

Thank Barbara for the prompt of television.  What a great prompt!  Everyone needs to check out her blog!  You’ll be glad you did.  And thanks to Linda for hosting us once again.

I (raise your right hand) Jilly Dub do solemnly swear that I am addicted to TV.  I am of a generation before cable, satellite, etc…  The first TV of my memory was only black & white.  It had rabbit ears and foil on the antenna.  It went off the air overnight always ending with the playing of the National Anthem.  Of course I wasn’t allowed to stay up that late.  Only every one and a while did I see the final salute.  Usually when my parents went out to the 1970’s version of clubbing.  Which was to go dancing at the Martinez Social Club.

Ah the good ole days.  Only 4 channels when you count PBS.  We watched as a family and dad was dictator to program choice.  We were his remote control.  What fun times we had when he finally got a real remote control.  Flipping stations.  Oooohhhhhh.  Delightful.  Often times right in the middle of a show.  “Hey, I was watching that” with response of “Hey, it’s MY TV”.  Good thing we liked much of what he liked.

Anyway work is calling me again.  This stroll down memory lane was fun!  Almost as fun as actually watching TV.

As always, more to come.

Thank you Debbie for dazzle.  Excellent prompt.  Thanks Linda for hosting.  Hard to believe only four more days left of #JusJoJan.

Dazzle makes me think of blinding lights, diamonds, or razzle-dazzle.  The Harlem Globe trotters used the ole razzle dazzle.  We saw them once when they came through San Antonio.  What a fun experience!!

Now I have an ear worm. Except I can’t whistle.  It’s a wordless song on a loop.  Oh my!!!

And that’s all she wrote because work is interfering.  Now lunch is over.  Boo hiss 😦  Wishing you a work week full of dazzle … the good kind, not trickster kind.  Whoop there it is …

As always, more to come.

#JusJoJan 01/26/20

Thanks for the prompt Saumya.  Take a look at the randomnessedinked blog. You’ll be glad you did.  Also, thanks Linda for hosting.  Today we have …

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 26th, 2020, is “busy.” Use the word “busy” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I immediately thought of Frosty the Snowman.  Here’s why …

Grainy copy but still gets the idea out of my head.

I have been a busy beaver of late.  Getting in my steps.  This weekend I accomplished more than lounging, reading, and basically being a hermit which was what my weekends  had become without the kidlet.  She is back at school and I am bound and determined to not go back to the way things were when she was gone.

I have life to live ya know?  Busy Busy Busy!  The good kind of busy which makes for a life well lived.  NOT the stressed out busy.  At double nickle something clicked.  If I don’t wanna, I’m not gonna.  The busy that once consumed me with expectations of  “I have to” are gone.  Whew!  Better late than never.

And with that, toodle loo.  Have a Wonderful Sunday.

As always, more to come.

#SoCS & #JusJoJan 01/25/20

Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to join #JusJoJan and #SoCS in holy prompts matrimony. ❤️

If you’d like to attend the ceremonies read below then come back up to follow this link for the reception.

Well of course I had to go for a tri-core, not to be confused with encore.  This is after all the last call combination of #JusJoJan and #SoCS.  We’ve been requested to …

Talk about the enterprise (sales or service) conducted by the last phone call you received from a business you’re not associated with (i.e. your workplace), or talk about that phone conversation itself. Have fun!

Hmmm.  Tricky since I like the Maytag repairman do not get phone calls of this variety.  Businesses don’t call me for repairs because nothing is broken or said another way, the washing machine that is Jilly’s mind is working like a charm.

I get calls for work yes but not from businesses I’m not associated with.  Not never but not often.  Thank you “do not call” list which doesn’t work but works.

Sheesh!  What am I gonna do?  Check my phone I guess.  And scroll … as I whistle but I can’t whistle so I’ll just scroll.






Yeppers Pony Boy called me twice recently!  #Blessed



Lulu – my baby girl checking in

still no businesses until right after Lulu


*****Well hells bells!!!! Yipee ki yay Muther effers!!!!!! I can’t write about that because errrrgh.  Because the situation pisses me off too much. ******

The call came in to tell me that my appointment for 2/6/20 was cancelled because the concierge bullsHit! doc was no longer with the practice.  Nice that they thought to call me but duh.  I’ve already had the medical records debacle.  They should know … that I know … that they know … that this is bullsHit! Of course I’m not going back.  You abandoned me!!!

When Doc K left (moved back home to be near family), I got Doc R (left to make more money and/or leave the health insurance crisis behind her).  Now that Doc R left, they are not accepting “new” patients.  Except that I am NOT a “new” patient.  I’m an existing patient who still has un-diagnosed issues which I won’t speak of seeing as this is a PG rated challenge and I’ve already swear words my quota for the week.

Whew!  Deep breath and practice mindful breathing.  I will end with Namaste, Om, and Happy Buddha Guru.

As always, more to come.

I still keep wanting to write 2019.  Make it stop!  LOL.

The prompt today is change.  Thanks Wendy!  Check out her blog.  You’ll be glad you did.  Thanks Linda for hosting!

Change, the only thing in life that’s inevitable.  Or wait!  Is that death or taxes that are inevitable?  Maybe the word I am looking for is constant.  Yep!  The only constant in life is change.  Change and Hope a fickle “you know what” are my companions on this journey of life.

I really dislike the workplace buzz words.  If I have to go on another “journey”, I’m gonna jump off the curb.  My co-worker and I help each other keep from curb jumping.  I usually equate change with my work life but change is all around us.  Just like LOVE.  Love is all around MTM!  Yep I am so frazzled after a crazy zany work week in which our CEO retired and the new boss took over.  It’s a Friday and I am just now closing shop for the day after being online since 7:30 AM.  That’s why this is all I got.

As always, more to come.

Janet gives us drive. Most excellent! Check out her blog. Guaranteed to make you smile. Thanks Linda for hosting.

So much to say. So little time. Darn it! And I need to release the hounds. Instead I’ll share this musical interlude.

Flash back to the 80s is another way to release the tension. Ahh now that the stuff. Hope you enjoy 😊

As always more to come.
