Of Bass Amps and Marshalls? Maybe. For now it’s a TToT.

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.

    I’m delighted you have taken over the hostinea* (*Clark’s word, I believe) of the SSS. Some of us keep our birthdays in perspective with one little mention. Others of us write a whole post about it. Ha, ha! I suppose that is my Scottian aspect showing itself. (Again, Clark reference). Have a good week. It’s nice to visit with you twice a week. Enjoy every moment,

      Thank you Val. Yes, you are correct, hostinea is a “Clark word” lol
      Can we keep perspective on birthdays the older we get? 😀
      Have a good week also! May we start seeing warming temperatures real soon!!
      I’m glad we can visit and I will make every effort to enjoy every moment. See you Thursday!

    I plan on joining in on the SSS again here soon; my absence of late has nothing to do with the change of hosting.
    Happy birthday!
    I sometimes find myself struggling to convey deep thoughts without going into all the details. Sometimes, vagueness is worse and triggers an “Are you OK?” phone call! 🙂 In any case, I’m glad for your #9. Life, with all its challenges, is definitely a process.

      Thank you Kristi for the birthday wishes!
      I look forward to when you participate. No pressure from me. I totally get the wanting to but not. Many weeks I had every intention of posting and, for reasons both good and bad, didn’t.
      Thank you for the affirmation. I had wondered if there might be folks not happy about the change of guard at the SSS, but to my delight everyone has been very enthusiastic and supportive.
      Tricky waters to navigate, that, the writing of deep thoughts. It is challenging to write without detail for sure. You may have to experiment, see what’s comfortable for you style wise. For sure, if you are not known for being vague and you write a dark or heavy piece, AND are vague, I can see people wanting to know what’s up!
      Here’s to the process 😊

    So so cool that you’re taking over! A good thing for a new year that marks the one in which we were born. Hm. Now I have to think about the challenge. Here’s to life. Adjusting and having a nice blue car to escape to.

    Agreed, it is a good thing, especially this year.
    Challenges. You, my friend, are up for any☺

    Here I am! I know. It is almost time to post TTOT again, but better late than never for getting a comment posted.
    First of all, you are doing great hosting the SSS.
    Glad your phone is back up to speed. I dread the day I might need to get a new phone. Mine is just a phone that I can use to make calls and to text, nothing more, and that is what I prefer.
    Love your #8, #9, and #10. Hope you have a good week ahead.
