I got positive feedback from my ramblings post. Although I haven't the slightest idea why. In English class, heck in any class and in life, anything you do is supposed to have purpose and structure. Me rambling does not have focus and flow and certainly no structure. So you asked for it, here's another ramble.
Validation on comments can be very frustrating. First, why the heck can't Blogger actually use real words to enter for validation? Come on now, use your big boy words. No, instead you get ugunlaricle and wagilast. What the??? A pet peeve of mine is when I leave a comment, hit enter and start to move on to another screen and then I see the box that asks for validation. Come on, why didn't you have the little validation box when I originally left the comment. In some cases I've left the page and noticed too late the validation box was empty. Now some poor blogger won't know that I left a comment. I know tragic! I usually go back and retype the comment so all is not lost. I took off my validation for my own comments awhile ago and I have gotten a couple funky spam things but it hasn't been excessive. I also have some anonymous person that leaves me comments. They've been nice, positive comments but I have no idea who it is. Secret admirer or stalker?
In an effort to be more regular I'm going to add more prunes into my diet. If you read my 5 at 5 post earlier this week, you'll have read that I had a really uncomfortable run and I was considering fertilizing the bushes. I think the pizza the night before messed up my system and its still rebelling. Are you the type where you believe if you share your fears they will come to fruition? My latest worry is that I'll have a 5 at 5 type of run during my marathon. So I have to figure out the getting to being regular in the next 36 days. Now I need to decide how many is one prune too many?
I admire the bloggers like Tall Mom who can have High Five Friday's and Test Lab Tuesdays. Everyday has a purpose. I personally can't stick to a schedule and enjoy the flexibility of posting whatever, whenever. Since Friday's are my off day for running, I could make it rambling Friday or something like that ( I would need to find a word that started with F) but that would be too much pressure. I guess a true ramble is whatever, whenever.
My final ramble is on February 14th, after my marathon, I'm going to eat two donuts and have Baileys on ice. One donut with maple frosting and the other with white frosting with rainbow sprinkles on it. And I'm going to enjoy every minute of it. People at work are very kind bringing in donuts but don't they know I have a BQ to run and I don't need extra temptation? Chocolate is bad enough but having donuts tempt me too? It's almost too much to handle. Glancing over my shoulder to make sure no one sees, I gently open the donut box (thank goodness it doesn't squeak like a door), eyeball the donuts, smell the deep fried grease, sugar and yummy goodness, sigh very loudly and stomp back into my office. February 14th can't come soon enough.
