Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

OMG...

I think I just got turned on by something I wrote. Wow. That was cool. I might have to read it again!

And since I like what Anna does, I'll start keeping track of the words, pages I am writing, maybe as a visual incentive to keep going.

Currently Reading: Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner,
(WARNING: STOP READING THIS POST NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK!)...

(Okay, continue)...and while she is my all-time author-extraordinaire idol, I'm not quite sure how I'm feeling about this book. I do jump into bed, excited to read it, but then later the next day, I'm not too sure what I feel... maybe the mystery thing has got me all confused, finding a dead Desperatey-Housewifey chick in her kitchen with a knife in her back... Just not too sure. And maybe that's good, because I have no idea who did it, although I'm starting to think EM, for those of you who are reading it, but then again, maybe, that's what Jen Weiner would want us to think. No wait! I bet it was Kate's husband! That would give Kate an excuse to divorce him and be with the one she really loves! Hmmm... maybe I am into this book!

Wait, you just got turned on by something you wrote and you're not going to post it? FOR SHAME!

Isn't that why women write romance novels? Isn't it to dream of that special someone that never was, or write that special fantasy that ye ole' hubby would never be willing to do?

Joel, the thing is, there's nothing that 'ye ole' hubby' would never be willing to do! LOL.

Ooh, my word verification is: TULZU

TULZU!!!! Mine is qsncz... not nearly as exciting.

Ewwww! I don't wanna know :P

I think a lot of writers ignore some basic rules of grammar to suit their own writing tastes, which is fine by me.

I think you should create a web forum on your website for you and your readers.

How do I create a web forum and what do you think the readers would want to talk about? If you want to get more detailed, email me on my regular address. I think you can get it on my main page. S
iuwpf, btw!

Wait, how are you guys getting 5-letter words? My current word is the unweildy yuaqwlw. I always get words of 7-10 letters. Do I just look untrustworthy or something? Do I look like a spammer? I might as well give up and die now.

Rest easy, Anna. Mine is longer now, too... I'm hoping you know what I'm talking about and not merely drawing assumptions based on the fact that I typed 'mine is longer.'

S - I'll email you some details and samples. Now... off to type celqmir (7 letters, Anna! See? It is just as long as yours) and press the [Publish] button.

Woah! tcmaluwd! I think my new verification 'word' just took some viagra.

Ok, I'll stop spamming your blog now. This whole "compare our verification 'words'" thing has gotten me all excited.

Go over to Conversations about Famous People and check out her WVs... I had one once that was double the length of the Chinese alphabet!

Sweaters are too costly, I refuse to handwash anything, and I get too hot in them. Consequently, in the summer, I refuse to wear sleeveless ANYTHING because I hate my arms. It's the No-Win life of a rgjnvlw.

Hey, I got a new idea--let's make up sentences with our WVs... let's see

Regina gets Julie nude, very long wait...

Sorry, now I'm spamming myself... and boy does that feel nice!

Thanks for showing me your sight...really great! I'm off to the web page now, but will drop by here from time to time. The bloging mommies looks fun as well...

This post is killing me. I keep seeing and thinking, "Wait. I haven't read that one yet" when, indeed, I read the first part. Just didn't want to read Goodnight Nobody spoilers, as I have yet to get the book. (I wish the library would hurry up and call me!) Thanks, though, for the link. I appreciate it. Forgot to mention it in all the discussion of word verification.
