Fantastical Friday: Mom’s B-day

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

So this week is a little different. My mother’s birthday is October 4th & thought it might be cool to talk about my process of finding the right gifts for people. First, it’s important to know the people we buy for, I mean really know what they like. In the case of my mother, she loves dinosaurs. Documentaries, movies, etc, if it’s about the dinos it was made for her, LOL. She doesn’t like comforters, so getting her a dinosaur comforter is out of the question despite the change in weather around her big day. On the other hand, I know she doesn’t get out to the theaters, like ever, so she didn’t go see Jurassic World. I haven’t seen it either, which is really unimportant to this discussion, but she is totally in love with the series, so getting her a copy is the perfect solution to the gift problem. She doesn’t have a blu ray, but she does have a DVD player. With all of this in mind, I went to the local Walmart, searched around & managed to uncover a couple of copies on DVD. Couldn’t get it online because she would see the package in the mail & ask about it, LOL. Mom doesn’t read my blog on any kind of regular basis, being a daily mail addict, working 5 days a week, still having one teenage child & numerous local grandchildren, she really has limited personal time to find spoilers on the internet (side note: she doesn’t have facebook, twitter or G+ which covers all of the major social sites I promote my blog on, LOL).

Versatile Blogger Award

versatile-award

Rules:
Thank & link back to the person who tagged you.
Tell 7 facts about yourself.
Nominate 15 other bloggers.

This was very much a surprise for me, lol. Only looking at it from the right angle can any versatility be seen on my blog. I do range from classically classy styling to the ultimate in nerdy costuming, so I suppose that can be thought of as versatility, lol. Naturally I have a great deal of gratitude for Clair Elsley’s nomination for this tag. 😉

Facts:
1) I have 5 cats. LOL I’m a crazy cat lady. I come by it naturally, crazy cat lady runs in my family. Random side note: they are all black.
2) I don’t actually enjoy shopping so much as getting stuff, lol.
3) I am a multi-tasker; why do just one thing at a time when you can do at least 3!
4) I’m an unrepentant Netflixaholic.
5) I’m in The Walking Dead withdrawals, made all the worse by AMC’s decision to postpone the premier of the most horribly named spin off ever, Fear the Walking Dead.
6) I firmly believe that those people who think television is bad for you have either never watched good TV or have forgotten it’s existence, such as the original The Twilight Zone (which is not only one of the greatest study in ethics of all time, but was created when the medium of television was a very new art form).
7) I have 3 sisters & 3 brothers. 2 of my sisters are mothers & 1 of my brothers is a father. Collectively, I have 8 nieces & 2 nephews.

Nominees:
I truly have zero time to research who to tag, which is part of the reason it has taken me so long to put together this post. Due to very recent familial developments I have even less time, so I chose to nominate all of my readers who choose to do this. 😉 You are all so much more deserving of this tag than I am.

July Fourth

With the holiday coming up on weekend, it just seemed like a practical thing to continue writing about, lol. Once when I was a little girl we went to my uncle’s place for the celebration. Back then I was always my older brother’s lackey, so it was only natural that at some point he decided we were going to build a fort & I that had to go collect some small logs he had seen further out on the property. I didn’t really want to gather the logs, but he was always good at pushing my buttons so that I would end up doing whatever he told me to. I went out to gather the smalls logs that had obviously been there for quite a while & when I lifted the first of the group I was suddenly eye to eye with a snake! Mind you, I was a little girl, so naturally I made a surprised noise & dropped the log on its head. Then I ran into the house where I whispered about the experience to my Grammy, who i swore to secrecy about the incident. Of course, family do not really keep secrets very well, so as soon as I left the room she promptly shared my story & her mirth about it with everyone. After a bit my uncle came to find me, said he went & looked in the logs & found no snake. I gave him very specific directions & still he claimed to have checked there. Mom & my uncle then had me “show” them where I found the snake. When I moved the log, sure enough, that snake was still there, but it wasn’t to keen on sticking its head up to get clobbered by the log again, it was frantically trying to slither away. The poor thing was a bit trapped though, in it’s panic it was being stopped by the rut the log had worked itself into over the years. Mom declared it a garden snake, she didn’t want us to be afraid of snakes, so she carefully picked it up. We all got to touch the snake before we released in the tall grass at the edge of the property. You never know what may happen during a get together, especially when children are present, but you might just get to learn something new. 😉

Anyway, I have made some selections from Target for a casual July 4th celebration. It’s definitely a style I would feel comfortable wearing & are totally on my summer shopping list. 😉
