Friday night. Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Damn. Was too late so now, being Saturday morning, I’ll tell you about last night… after wandering around a bit in the ‘sphere, I plugged in the headset to listen to today’s vid. Nothing like music in the earbuds, close to the brain, totally inside yo head. (I mean it is Friday night) Of course, not all the time (buds in the ears, that is). No, imo, music is more properly listened to through acceptable stereo equipment. Audiophiles, you know of what I speak 😀
Sometimes Autoplay at the Tube is totally awesome. Like now “next YouTube selection from Screaming Trees”. Yes. It’s one of those nights. Late (now 11:15 pm). End of a week. Challenging week or 2. My point: “just be glad it’s all over“. (heads up! another favorite and life marker band cued up. Next? Alice in Chains anyone? Yes, please).
…Ahem, shall we return to real time this Saturday morning? Alright. Time for some retrospectivating…..
Thursday marked the debut of Six Sentence Stories under the auspices of yours truly. (seems weird linking to myself. Can I do that? Should I do that? Will I look like a self aggrandizing jerk? Whoah! Where in sam hill did that come from? Yo, Girlie! Get a grip!)
I have new appreciation for our former hostess and guide zoe. Indeed, she tops the list ‘o Ten Things of Thankful. Josie? Here goes nothing…..
First TToT: Zoe. For her tireless devotion bringing us the SSS every Thursday for so many years. For her confidence in me to take the conn. I won’t let you down!
Second TToT: Josie of the 2 Shoes for her incredibly positive attitude. All of the time. For her support during the SSS transition.
Third TToT: Everyone who participates in the Six Sentence Story bloghop whether you posted this week or not. To writers thinking about posting and then did, in spite of uncertainties 🙂 (hey! that’s you Viola Blue, glad you made it!) It is through all of you, by your example, that I will learn to write better. This week’s was an amazing collection of stories. Write on people. Write on.
Fourth TToT: That Wednesday’s “illness” did not cause me grief the following day, which was my birthday and first day hosting the SSS. It was a pretty good day made even better by all the lovely birthday wishes and cards (thanks sis!).
Fifth TToT: I’m very thankful my phone has returned to sanity! Had about a week of the battery draining excessively fast. Seems to be more “normal” now, although it may be getting about time to get a new one.
Sixth TToT: I am not displeased with myself (so, thankful I guess) that I’m adapting, albeit slowly, to my new laptop. All in good time, right? 😀
Seventh TToT: No snow!
Eight TToT: I am daily, thankful for my apparent good health, my memory (most of the time!), my job, my wonderful blue car that is, at times, a marvelous escape hatch.
Ninth TToT: Hm. Had to think a little on this one. How to convey the thankful for getting better at “letting go“. I remind myself it is a process. Not to be mistaken for closure, it nonetheless is life altering.
Tenth TToT: As always. Now. This moment. Today. There is no other day.
