Ready, Set, Done!

Writing

 

Oh Dear God it’s back, how do these keep popping up on me? Anywhere here we go…..

Writing Prompt: As it’s been a while since our last free-write… set a timer for ten minutes. Write without pause (and no edits!) until you’re out of time. Then, publish what you have (it’s your call whether or not to give the post a once-over).

For the past few weeks I haven’t been watching television, and I’ve missed all of my favorite shows, not sure what the reason I stopped, I’ve just be submerged in Korean Dramas and Korean Variety shows… and naturally I blame Netflix and Hulu for that. But lately I was feeling down and was in bed and I couldn’t really find anything on Netflix or Hulu so I went over to DramaFever.. and watched all season and well as the new episodes of After School: Lucky or Not, then I moved over to The Return of Superman… which I thought was beyond cute, but I was totally confused about the concept until someone spilled the beans that KBS had put all of the episodes on Youtube with English subtitles (Bless You KBS). So last night I’m watching this show and thinking about why I’m so into it, then I realized something this is a “:real” reality show that shows the real relationship with fathers and their young children, this is so beyond watching “housewives” living in McMansions faking wealth and making complete idiots of themselves for fame.And it’s on the opposite side of the world of a fame whoring family who’s only claim to fame is a sex tape..

I like the idea of watching something that EVERYONE can sit down and watch without feeling like it’s too inappropriate, but more than anything I love that the concept is universal, no matter what your language, ethnic background these are shows that you can laugh and find something enjoyable about.

I admit that these shows are a time commitment, each show is roughly 90 minutes, and with 50+ episodes I’m gonna be here for a while …. but I don’t mind it so much…

Writing Prompt: Our ten-minute free-write is back for another round! Tap away on whatever comes to mind, no filters attached.

There is nothing in the world than makes me feel weaker than a cold, and hell I feel like I should take it, two liver transplant, blood clots and cancer, and a cold, take me down. I’m sitting here trying to write this and it’s like I’m taking a math test, everything is jumbled and more than anything I want to take a nap.. It could have something to do with the Tylenol cold medicine that I took or it could be the fact that I’m a wimp…. I’m thinking it’s the later.

I’ve  had this cold for 4 days and and by day two my mother is asking me if I’ve called my doctor…nope I have not called my doctor, it’s a cough and a runny nose, I’m miserable but I’m pretty sure I’ll survive, if I’m not feeling better by Monday then I might consider calling the doctor. Since I’m a transplant patient cold medication can be a bit tricky, alcohol-free medicine is more expensive and honestly I don’t think it work as good as the other stuff… so more often than not I don’t take anything…. besides what is the point of telling my doctor, all he’s gonna do is tell me to go take a chest x-ray, then call me and tell me it’s “all clear”

I’m complaining A LOT because I’m so tired, I’m tired because every time I lay down I have these coughing fits, coughing so much that my side has started to hurt (seriously do you think I might have torn something?) and before you ask ..yes I have cough drops… actually I’m taking Ricola (halls are gross). And since we are talking about Riccola what the hell is “Chrueterchraft” and it’s not working for me.

You know what this is bullshit, I’m going to sleep!

Until Next Time….

Ten Minutes on the Clock…..

I finally figured out why I don’t care for these free writes…. they remind me oh high school, we would have this notebooks and every day for 10 minutes we had to just write, many times I just wanted to sit down and write one word over and over again. We were to write whatever we wanted, no holds bared; our teacher never read what we wrote, and we would get points based on whether we wrote or not… I distinctly remember our “journals” being 20% of our overall grade. Strange how I remember that, but then I guess I have The Daily Post to thank for that.

I think one of the things that I have learned during these free write exercises is that sometimes previously repressed thoughts and emotions surface, but then again I might write total incoherent nonsense for ten minutes. It doesn’t matter. Most of us have a compulsive habit of editing as we write, resulting in a repression of thoughts and emotions we consider unacceptable or “not good enough.”

I’m gonna say this one time and one time only, I think I’m actually starting to like these things.

Until Next Time,

Ten Minutes on the Clock…..

 

So I’m sitting here watching (like a lot of people) are watching the Watch What Happens Live One on One with Teresa and Joe Guidice, by now everyone knows that they are going to jail and why. I did my very best to watch the interview with an open mind, and no matter what I think about Teresa or Joe the real victims of this are their children… so I’m watching the interview.

My very first thought while watching there interview and said to myself.”This is one of the most cringe worthy interviews I’ve ever seen… I thought these people had an image consultant…. they sound like idiots “ in all fairness I understand that’s a mean thing to say. But despite the fact that they had a crisis management team (which I’m sure had a lessons in speaking )seemed to be a fail. I found the couple to be (obviously nervous but still in shock) ignorant of the entire process and they didn’t seem like they were ready to take full accountability for what they’ve done.

There were certain parts of the interview that stood out for me, is their behavior during the interview. Andy asked, “what did you think would happen after you pled guilty?” Teresa’s response was, “ I dunno, I thought my lawyer would fight for me” girl please, lawyers aren’t miracle workers they can only work with what you give them, then she goes on to say, after the judge ruled she did not talk with her attorneys. She left court. It was done. This is the exact reason you’re in the situation that you’re in… you don’t ask questions and you didn’t take a proactive part in your life, I can give two craps abut her being “old school” you screwed your self to the tune of 14 months in a Federal prison.

Now Joe on the other had… he kept saying, “Watcha gonna do”, “You know” and the every popular, “I don’t know”… it was a hot mess… clearly they fired their crisis management team… otherwise they would have advised the couple not to do that interview…. just my thoughts

 

Until Next Time….

Writing Prompt: Our weekly free-write is back: take ten minutes — no pauses! — to write about anything, unfiltered and unedited. You can then publish the post as-is, or edit a bit first — your call.

I saw the prompt and  threw a little tiny shit fit. It’s not that I don’t like the prompt but I seriously have to do a stream of consciousness once a week. Seriously who decided that this was a good idea? And then who said…”Let’s do this once a week?” If you require more prompt… let someone know…. this doesn’t make me happy at all. Gosh what I can talk about, today is not the day that you would want to hear what’s on my thoughts… because it would be like this, “I’m freezing right now, I’m exhausted and I want to take a nap and I’m currently watching last nights a Big Brother Australia.

With the color weather I’m thinking about winter and the fact that I will be shoveling, we got a LOT fo snow here last winter, so I felt like every other day I was outside shoveling snow… and with reports that this winter is gonna be as bad as last winter I’m preparing myself for it… so I’m buying a new shovel… a more back friendly one; I think the only thing that kept me from crying every single time it snowed was the idea that I was getting some major cardio that day and I didn’t really have to go to the gym… I will say that winters in Chicago make me wish that I didn’t have to park on the street….. and in the winter snow plows are my enemy… there is nothing worst than waking up and ready to go, then realize that you have to shovel yourself out before you can be on your way *sigh* I’m just gonna put this out in the universe, I’d rather have frigid cold weather with not a lot of snow, then a lot of now and warmer temps….

As you can tell I’m not a fan of snow…. and I want a a nap. (and I hate the snow free writes)

Until Next Time….
