I am absolutely sorry that I have been away. It has actually been eating at my mind. Lines like these have been filling the corridors of my mind, “You may only have three readers, but that’s no excuse.Chop, chop! Get to it. Post away. How could you start a blog and then abandon it? What a waste of space in the blogosphere! Horrible misfit of a blogger!”
Yes, that has been the condition of my bemused mind while I hobbled quietly away from grand tinkerdom thinking I could never accomplish such a wonderful blog. NO MORE! Well at least not on Tinker With Tools Tuesday! So here we arrive.
My birthday was far from uneventful. Despite tummy turbulence that day–I declare something was certainly sloshing about in there–we ventured out. I kid you not! I shall mention, I followed two children along a basketball court that day as they frolicked about the court running this way and that with pure blissful abandon, not a thought in their minds (I’m sure of it) but, “how far can we make mommy run today.” It was sheer heaps of fun. We rushed home for a little nap and then on to the movie theatre for a 3D movie, gigantic bug-sized glasses and all, to see Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland–what a wonderful movie, pure imagination.
I know, I’m stalling with the word of the day here but it will all be worth it. I promise. So anyhoo, afterwards as soon as it was all over and Alice had declared her “6 impossible things before breakfast” speech. I turned to my most wonderful husband beaming with love for the movie.
“Tim Burton sure knows how to spin things wonderfully doesn’t he?”
“Yeah, that’s because he’s crazy.” says said spouse.
“No, no, he’s a bit eccentric and wonderfully beyond creative.” If ever there were a word for that, I’d jump for joy. There would be glee in my eyes. Glee.
My husband then continued explaining that in the movie is a scene with Alice and her father. Alice asks, “Am I crazy.” and her father replies “Yes, you may be. But all the good ones are.” Isn’t that so? I love that line! Don’t you? So my point is as clear as the kings (yes, of hearts) response in his own crazy court.”So [when you are one of a kind and]the words don’t fit you” simply reply as the queen always does:”off with his/her head!” Of course I’m kidding, maybe we’ll only awknowledge or refer to you as the wonderful word of the day:(sung to the tune of the cartoon show “We’re Animaniacs”)
Yes, were bizarre, and unusual
aberrant, and abnormal. Anomalous, beat*, bent*, and bizarre.
Were eccentric. We’re animaniacs. Were fun and full of zany weird far out facts. We like to create wondor and pretend to be capricious, characteristic, and cockeyed. Don’t let us fool you we crazy, curious, droll, erratic, far out, flaky, and possibly a freakish freak. Absolutely funky*, and definately funny. Now if you want a few more words here is the end of that: idiosyncratic, irregular, kooky, nutty, odd, oddball, off the wall, off-center, offbeat, out in left field, outlandish, peculiar, quaint, queer, quirky, quizzical, singular, strange, uncommon, unconventional, unnatural, way out, weird, whimsical, wild. We’re ANIMANIACS!
It’s a win win kinda thing, but if you are not happy with any of those, writer, we will simply think of you as they do in Alice in Wonderland: one of Alice’s many many “impossible things before breakfast”.
I naturally take a bow and exit to the left.
