This is for my book hoarder friends out there.
Me in a Library
I have been so sad that the libraries have been closed for so long. Some of them opened with limited hours, but I am still not happy. I can’t go there and do what I need to at all hours of the day.
One day, libraries will reopen and I will be just like this meme, below. Hopefully soon!
Alien Abductions Only at Night
This explains a lot to those of us who have children.
Otto Correct has made his way into my life. Many of the things I type would be much more interesting if I didn’t correct what Mr. Correct has typed for me. It is worse when I do a voice to text message, but some of the typing messages do get the attention of Otto.
Otto Correct has put naval orangutans on my shopping list. I didn’t bother to fix it to oranges, because I knew what it meant, and I kind of found it humorous.
On the second day of the workweek, I sent a friend a message to have a Happy Toadstool! I guess Otto thought that Tuesdays were boring, not happy, and toadstools made more sense to him.
I’ve wished my cousin a Happy Birdbath on the anniversary of her birth. I just sent it that way because she understands me. Poor woman. Understanding what’s going on in my head is a full time job. She seems to have it down pat.
I was explaining that closies count only in house shows. Well, that and horse shoes, I guess.
I think one of the things that Otto Correct enjoys most is attempting to embarrass me. You don’t know how many times I have tried to type, “see previous text” and actually almost send “see penis text.” Feel honored if you get one of those. It means that I don’t embarrass around you too easily.
If Otto Correct comes to visit you, please feel free to send his humorous changes to your texts and emails. Sometimes he’s just sending you much needed laughs. We all can use more laughs. Share them!
Reenacted Baby Photos
Some of the photos in the above linked article are fun. Reenactment of baby photos are always fun and this is a good group of them. A few of my favorites are below.
Literary collective nouns
I always love the names that groups get. A murder of crows is a favorite. Some of these might become favorites of mine, too.
Jim C. Hines, author of Libriomancer, had a photoshoot or two, posing as the cover models on Sci fi books and comic books. It looks like he had a great time. The link is above.
Book Lending Rules
These are reasons that I don’t usually lend books I have not read or that I want back. I don’t know that I’d go as far as death, but being annoyed and never lending to that person again would be the punishment from me.
These are all good reasons to read
I think fact 5 is the least important reason to read, but I suppose that a list like this needed a little humor, though.
Papers would be so much more fun if proofreaders made more interesting notations, such as those in the illustration below. I think the “add mustache” and “word tornado” should definitely be used more often.
