Share Your World – Week 112

I’ll save this photo for July when the heat index is about 150 in the shade…

The nasty, icky, nipple hardening cold from the first half of the month is gone… but not before I was able to get (somewhat accidentally) this really neat looking photo of one of the icicles hanging off my roof.  It makes me shiver just looking at that icy tendril.  It wouldn’t have lasted long the past two days when it’s damn near felt spring-like.  And at least I no longer have to worry about veering around Mt. Everest while backing out of my driveway…

Now it’s time to share our world, with questions, as always, provided by Melanie

Someone’s been using the mimeograph machine again…

Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone?

I’m assuming this is a smartphone phenomenon, as I’ve seen countless people (mostly women and girls) strut around with their phones sticking out of the back pocket of their skin tight pants and have always wondered how they manage not to break the damn thing when they sit down…

It’s going to be embarrassing at the emergency room when they have to pick a hundred glass shards out of your ass.

I’ve never owned a smartphone, and for the past year and a half, haven’t even had a dumbphone anymore.  So you won’t have to be worried about getting butt-dialed by me.  And I won’t have to worry about glass in my ass….

If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?

Put your hand down, Horshak! We’re not using it for…. THAT!

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently?

Each January/February, I host a lyrics contest on the Millionaire message board I’ve been a member of for two decades now.  One of my bonuses for each game asks players to find an image online that somehow ties into the theme of that particular game… because as I’m sure you’re aware, I love challenging people to be creative and find ways to entertain me and make me laugh.  Just like here, my players there never fail to amaze me.  Here are some of my favorite “Image Bonuses” from this year’s game that recently wrapped up…

Theme: The letter Y

Theme: Silence (I actually based this game on Mr. Fox!)

Theme: The word “hold”

Theme: Reptiles

Theme: Glowing (Warning: Sick humor ahead!  Do not attempt this at home!)

Theme: Two things that go great together

Theme: Gym class

Theme: Pets

And one of my all-time favorites, submitted in the 2019 game…..

Theme: Farm living

Lesbian cows for the win!!!

Have you ever eaten something off the floor?  ‘5 second’ rule applies or not?

I’ve definitely taken plenty of pills that have fallen on the floor due to my clumsy hands, which if you’ve opened boxes and stocked shelves for a living as long as I’ve had, is quite often.  Those things are too hard and/or expensive to replace.  I don’t think I’ve eaten food that’s fallen on the floor before, but I’ve scarfed up plenty that’s fallen off the plate onto the table…. including at public restaurants.  Dirt/grime/hair/stuff that makes the food look nasty is what disgusts me.  Germs/bacteria/viruses/crap I can’t see is never something I’ve cared about…

Hey dude! I’m not eating this shit off the porch!

Feel free to share your gratitude with everyone in the form of a quote, a thought or an image.

Since we’re on a funny kick today, I don’t think any movie scene I ever saw cracked me up as much the first time I saw it than this fitting gratitude scene from Christmas Vacation

Yeah, it loses a little if you aren’t American and didn’t have to recite the Pledge in class every morning as a kid….. but as soon as the first words came out of her mouth, I about  shit my pants 30 years ago!

  1. I had an idea what to do with the 1000 acres… but meanwhile every village cop knows the smell ….

  2. That’s one of my favorite moments from “Christmas Vacation” (my husband’s fave moment is when the cat disappears under the armchair……ouch). The lyrics contest entries from the Millionaire message board are hilarious – the snake one disturbs me somehow.

  3. Thank you Squirrel for providing a very unique and hilarious Share Your World! I may never recover …. LOL “hold my calls” oh BWAHAHAHAHHA!!! I had a boss once that I wanted to do that to, but it would have been considered harassment probably (long before the P.C. police showed up and arrested everyone who even thought that way… 😉 All the entries were fabulous, and I am still chuckling over them….

    • Imagine if I held a theme contest like that five times a week, and about ten people responded each day…. those entries were just the best of the best! Now hold my calls while I think of a new theme…

  4. Nice icicle photo! So appropriate especially after getting dumped on last night. I can’t even find my snow shovel it’s so deep. 😳

  5. Great post – hilarious! 😀

  6. I have seen people with cell phones sticking out of a lot of places where no telephone of any kind should ever be. My granddaughter used to stick in in her bra, but after the third time it fell out and broke and dad refused to pay for another one, she discovered the joys of carrying a bag — in her case, a camera bag. She’s kind of my clone and carries a camera everywhere. I just gave her my really good other camera and a big bag to go with it. I had too many cameras and FAR too many lenses that I never used. I’m actually delighted that she is using it. She’s a very good photographer (at 24) and I think it’s going to turn out to be her life’s work. And now, she has a really good pack pack in which she can carry her phone and all the other odds and ends we all seem to need.

    They are REINVENTING THE FLIP PHONE! As soon as I saw the advertisements for them, I thought IMMEDIATELY of you. You can get a smart flip phone that does what a phone should do and it closes up, so you don’t have to wonder who you are calling when you cat steps on it. Our dog is always smacking the phone with his paws. He thinks it’s funny. That and the TV remote.

    I’m getting vaccinate so I may be able to emerge from my corner and rejoin the world! Yay me!

    • I’ve felt quite liberated the past year and a half going back to having no cell phone. They can reinvent the flip all they want, but my old ones are doing just fine as paperweights…

    I’ve never understood the phone in the back trouser pocket thing either. Maybe they don’t break it when they sit down because it’s already been stolen by then…
