Share Your World – Week 29

This was my punishment for making fun of Bible stories last week.

Well, I’ve finally got a few extra days away from the zoo that is post-fire Mecca… and Mother Nature came through and took care of that oppressive heat from the past couple weeks by dumping about thirty inches of rain on top of it Monday morning (I may be exaggerating).  But the rest of this week should be beautiful (Or kyooooooot, as Mitzi would say), so let’s kick it off by playing another round of Share Your World with Melanie’s questions for this week, mostly borrowed from other bloggers.  Time for the Randomator to work on its off day by choosing a logo…

This is how cooties spread.

What happens if you-stare at the mirror for too long in the dark?

What could possibly go wrong with that?  Let’s conscript a volunteer for an experiment…

BUSTER: Sure, I’ll do it!  Seems pretty easy given most of my usual roles on this blog.  So, is this the mirror?  Oh yeah, I think I can see the reflection of my double chin now.  And it appears I have some rat gizzards stuck in my teeth again.  Boy, you know… if it weren’t so dark in here, I’d take a selfie of myself right now!  I am a fine looking specimen, if I do say so myself.


BUSTER: So how much longer do I need to stand here?

Just a few more minutes Buster….

ZEEBA: Fuck yeah, Zeeba’s looking awesome!  I should totally take a selfie right now and send it to Sis!  She’ll shit her Huggies!

Do you think you’re judgmental?  What tends to bring it out in you?

Some form of this question gets asked all the time, which isn’t surprising since most people want to believe that it’s possible for people not to be judgmental.  It’s human nature.  Human beings are not capable of anything close to complete objectivity in assessing the people and environment around them.  The faults you see in other people regarding their judgmental nature are just as much present in yourself, they just manifest themselves in different ways…

Keep your opinions to yourself, you judgmental bitch!

Do you work better with actual lists or with mental lists?

Either’s really about as good as the other for me.  Any short term memory issues I’d have with mental lists are going to be made up for by my shitty handwriting in a written list…

If you really want to fuck with Santa, try sending him a mental wish list this year…

Would you go streaking across a football field during a game for a million dollars (insert your own country’s currency), knowing there’s a 50/50 chance you’ll get arrested for indecent exposure?

A 50/50 chance of being arrested for indecent exposure?  That’s so 70’s.  Sporting events are handled like fortresses in this modern age of terrorism… and the 50/50 odds are more like whether you’d get your crown jewels tased to oblivion once the fifty guards that will be in pursuit tackled your sorry ass on the 69 yard line.  They don’t mess around with gate crashers these days… if you try streaking at a game now, you’re gonna get fucked.  And not like a streaker imagines they might get fucked…

Zap that drunk clown’s ass!!!

What has happened in your life that made you feel uplifted and happy, if only temporarily?

Four day weekend AND cooler weather that is actually fit for human existence (at the cost of gallons of rain).  I’m quite uplifted and happy about that.  In fact, I’m so fucking excited!  Even if it will only last until Friday…

Trisha’s critter she used in her 2017 Contest of Whatever entry… I just happened upon it in my archive while I was searching for an image of someone who looked excited.

  1. So Mecca is still in a state of disarray post-fire? It’s tough to get rid of that smoke smell I bet. Lists? I’m a list-o-maniac. It’s my “memory on paper”…..fortunately I CAN read my own handwriting. I like the little green critter’s crooked and rather tentative looking smile. That’s me some days……


    • What’s tough to get rid of is the temporary crew from Florida who they have doing everything in the store, and very little of it correctly. They were supposed to be gone weeks ago, and yet they linger like a bad fart. I do love that crooked smile, though I see it as me sarcastically viewing the situation at work… like, “Really?”

  2. I’m a menta-list too… as soon as it is written or printed it becomes realy and that disturbs my daydreams or nightmares LOL

    Trisha’s critter is cute. Of course that’s just my opinion, a judgment as it were. 😉

  4. Thanks ES for Sharing Your World. Damn Buster. You’d think he’d learn after a while that he’s gonna DIE (exploding possum guts and blood all over our ‘screens’) no matter what he does. That new critter (or new to me anyway) is very very Kyoooott (cute,right?) I love the tiny sarcastic little grin on his/her green little face. Awwwww. ❤

    • The new to you critter is not mine. My Contest of Whatever theme two years ago was putting together your own SCT play (like you did this year), and that was one of the characters in a submission. The theme of the story was how that green guy was so cute that the rest of the story just kinda fell apart so everyone could help him out!

    It is dangerous to play with Bible stories. Does that rain now mean you have to start building an arch for animals, your own tiny animals?
    No rain here, a weather man said we are now under a frying cupola for weeks.

    • The rain did not last for 40 days, but only about four hours. We get storms where the rain all falls at once and causes problems, but then is quickly gone. I think all the animals in the yard were OK…

  6. I agree with you cooler weather and no rain. That excited critter is so cute, in a snarky excited way, lol.

  7. It cooled off here, too — after a ton of rain and a few tornadoes not far away. Yesiree, perfect weather! Just FINE.

    • We passed on the tornado part, but sure got the flash flooding part. Not the worst I’ve had to drive through, but still pretty wicked for what didn’t seem like a whole lot of rain…

  8. Trisha says:

    Awwww, the green critter! Seeing that sweet little face makes me feel a bit guilty for leaving him stuffed in my sock drawer for the past couple of years. I really should rescue him.

    I can’t believe all that water in your yard! In summer! Getting that much rain in summer seems crazy to me. Our summers are so dry. We’ve had one of the gloomiest Julys ever with lots of showery days so I was shocked to find out our rain total for the month is still less than half an inch. I guess all the moisture has been diverted your way.

    I hope things get to normal at Mecca soon. All that chaos because of one pyro kid…SMH

    • That poor critter locked away in a sock drawer!!! No wonder he has such a sarcastic (but cute) look on his face! Mitzi would die if I kept her in my underwear drawer… no wait, she’d probably like that (And so would Snuggle, which is weird)…

      When it rains it pours. All that rain fell in only about three hours. It didn’t sound like much on the roof at Mecca, but boy were the roads swamped on the way home…

  9. Only 4-legged streakers can get away with it these days. We save the really gross disgusting stuff for social media. But a dog running around center field can get away with murder.

    Shame it wasn’t raining like that when Mecca went up in flames.

    • Oh, it definitely was raining like that when Mecca went up in flames. But only on the inside. The kids in third world nations will love those soggy, moldy clothes that we drop on their shores…
