Weird and getting weirder.....

....Today is Friday the 13th. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything very interesting in my various searches for this day.  There was information about the usual events and superstitions, but I couldn't find anything that I could really identify with (with which I could really identify.) It was weird. You know, here you have a day with a lot of fringy vibes and nothing is churning up the creative juices. Well, it was cold to-day 13C and it's gonna get a lot colder, so maybe my brain was just slow or drained or something like that.

What do I do? Since I am well over half way through the blog-a-day challenge for 2013, I am not going to quit, but I do need some inspiration to write!! So I started doing, what I often do, when I have nothing to do. I key random words into the title bar of my MAC and hope for the best. I keyed in a few words, such as, everything, (I've done "nothing" before.) Some weird sites came up, but not really bogging material - there is weird and then there is really weird.

Finally I keyed in the word, "weird." A quote from John Cleese came up - gotta love him!!. I spent some time reading some of his quotations from the site Goodreads. Good but not for today. I really needed some TNT weirdness, to crank up the creative quotient. Then I remembered someone who is even weirder than John Cleese in my book anyway, Spike Milligan. So here are some of the quotes, that helped me get this post written!!

Weird Face

1. “Money can't buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.” 

2. “Said Hamlet to Ophelia,
I'll draw a sketch of thee.
What kind of pencil shall I use?
2B or not 2B?” 

3.  “Money can't buy you friends, but you do get a better class of enemy. ” 

4. “All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.” 

5.  “My father had a profound influence on me. He was a lunatic. ” 

6.  “I have a body of an eighteen year old. I keep it in the fridge.” 

7.   “I thought I'd begin by reading a poem by Shakespeare, but then I thought, why should I? He never reads any of mine. "

8.  “Contraceptives should be used on every conceivable occasion.” 

That's all folks!! Saved from a rather bland Friday the 13th by a few funny quotations, my favourite Brie and avocado sandwich and the promise of pasta with clams for dinner to night.

Hope you're having an awesome day!!

  2. wow, a post every day for the year, haven't done that challenge yet!
    I enjoyed these quotes, made me smile.
    Keep up the challenge!
    P.S. a good creation tip I use is to use someone else's post as the basis of your own twist on that subject - a credit/link to the original and you are good to go - can also bring you traffic from the other blog as well!
