Okay, for those who know from being in a US prison and receiving torture for the good of well….everyone and everything, I think the argument is now (US torture squad’s motto: “We torture for the butterflies”), or for those who have received many nerve conduction tests in one go, as I did yesterday, you learn that getting zapped with electricity a lot of times is really tiring. I guess it is from your muscles spasming and flopping around, or that they kept doing it again and again (Linda told me she was thinking, “Are they EVER going to stop!”). So, yet another criticism of the series 24; that Jack gets electricity put to him over and over and then goes running around for 20 hours or so. I was having problems moving a sheet on my bed. And Linda actually got up this morning because I couldn’t stop my moaning while the pain pills kicked in (hey, I tried, it was a very quiet moaning).
So anyway, I am recovering, though again, got a worker who wasn’t a usual and couldn’t read because her vision was so bad so that was two hours of direct supervision and then to the post office to send off some postcards. As long as I still have postcards, I will keep sending them! I am still resisting sending married couples Yaoi cards, fighting that temptation, because while I understand in theory that while getting a yaoi card would make ME happy, it might not produce the same result being delivered in East Texas or whatever.
Anyway, I have a weekend challenge, based on Em’s grand adventure over at Amusing Perhaps called, Goth Extravaganza. I really recommend you go take a look as it has girls, skull skirts, corsets, lace, girls in cat ears, wings, graveyards, fangs and FUN! Em’s has some fun friends. So, this is the weekend challenge, go and DO something and post it – have some deliberate, maybe silly fun and pass it on. I have a couple friends coming over and I have sent out the call, “Bring thy corsets” AND if all goes well we will have pictures of LINDA in her burgundy corset. And pics of us in some various Victorian graveyards.
But if you are not into graveyards, show up what you like doing, be it putting on bonnets and going yarn crazy to cycling home with ladders (I’m looking at you Neil). This is it, May Madness weekend, weather notwithstanding. And if you can’t leave the home, how about a home picnic, or making a tent on your bed and playing board games, or making shadow shapes against the wall, or turning off the lights, lighting the candles and looking out into the night? Or if you can’t leave bed, having someone come by to put up ceiling poster or get some toy cars and make a racing track in the sheets? I don’t know what it is but lets go and deliberately do it!
This is part of my “I’m gonna TRY” plan, which means, maybe if I plan to have fun, I will. Maybe if I allow myself, I might become inspired. It could work, odder things have happened. But remember, take the pictures and post them up. You know that Linda and friends will be going picture crazy in their goth outfits so hopefully I will have lots to share with you.
As for me, I have to make sure Linda gets off to bed and that I recover enough to get to the graveyard (visiting on top, not as an occupant), and this time in a mature, not in the middle of the night running away type of visit. Anyway, thanks to Em for this inspiration and I hope maybe if you want this will inspire an hour of joyful or silliness (I always find if in doubt, find some children and blow bubbles!), or wonder and fun.
So, get planning!
