I need a post but I got nothing to say. But since my Bug showed me a couple things that just are creepy - he has an iPod and get loads of weird stuff from his friends, or his own twisted sense of humor, I thought I'd share this video. Please feel free to cringe; I did, and then warned him not to pick up a knife. But, the damned song is just so catchy it gets stuck in your head.
This also bugged me when I was at Walgreens buying my box of wine. Really - would you consider eating this. (photo credit)
An atheist was walking through the woods.
'What majestic trees!'
'What powerful rivers!'
'What beautiful animals!'
He said to himself.
As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.
He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.
He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.
He tripped & fell on the ground.
He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.
Instantly, the Atheist cried out:
'Oh my God!'
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.
'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.'
'Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?'
'Am I to count you as a believer?'
The atheist looked directly into the light, and said: 'It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?'
'Very well', said the voice.
The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:
'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.'
Hehehehe; this stuff just cracks me up! Do you need a little laughter at the start of your week sometimes?
Speaking of fingers (and head and shoulders, knees and toes)
have you taken the "Which The Walking Dead character are you" test yet? I did, hoping I'd be Carol.
Now, you may think she is a wimp; victim of domestic violence prior to apocalypse, wanting others to make the hard decisions, accepts immediate situation at face value, hides behind the strong when threatened. But I see a strong character capable of growth. Never a leader, but as time and circumstance dictates, I see her stepping up when survival requires - for herself and others. She carries her own weight, makes a contribution in her own capacity, and is adaptable. No longer a follower, she voices an opinion on group matters, and is showing strength through unity of family and purpose. I'm not convinced she would die on her own. She has a strong sense of survival, and a highly developed moral compass.
Nothing wrong with being a supportive character. Sometimes, the hero wouldn't get far without that morality check. My results: T-Dog. Modifying my answers on a second run: Lori. Huh. Not the secondary characters I expected, but I am not disappointed either. If I'd been Angela or Shane, I'd just give up on myself.
So did you click the link and take the test? What character are you, and is it who you wanted to be, or do you accept the results?
Don't forget to join Stephen Tremp's Wormhole Day, Mark Koopman's Blog O'Hop, and Alex Cavenaugh's Top Ten on the 14th, 15th and 18th. And if you really need a prompt to write to, there's the other blog I co-host at Romantic Friday Writers. The March challenge is all about mayhem and murder. Misha Gericke's writing prompt is about description this month.
Know of any other events I should post in my community events? Sorry, I haven't been really keeping track because I'll be on blog break during April and RFW is the only post I expect to make (IF we don't take a blog break). Unless I get awesome news that my novel has been accepted somewhere and then I'll post on all forums. Ditto if I win the CA Lotto.
What are your March and April plans?
