Six Down; Eighty-Seven To Go

2 May

I’m a little behind in answering the daily prompts – about 93 prompts behind, if I’m honest.  So here goes:

At noon today, take a pause in what you’re doing or thinking about. Make a note of it, and write a post about it later.

12:00  Mmm, lunch!

12:02:  Mmm, lunch was delicious!

Head to your favorite online news source. Pick an article with a headline that grabs you. Now, write a short story based on the article. 

From Sky News:  Cannibalism Confirmed At Early US Settlements

Summary: Jamestown residents eat 14 year-old girl after difficult winter.

We’ve had a difficult winter, haven’t we Spud?

Mmm…lunch…

What role does music play in your life?

It often accompanies lunch.

But what it really wants to do is direct.

Read the story of Richard Parker and Tom Dudley.  [Shipwrecked sailors dine on dying cabin boy] Is what Dudley did defensible? What would you have done?

I plead the Fifth.  I will say, however, that if I had been there, which I quite possibly was because the report says Tilly succeeded in obtaining bail, that I’d have been cleared on the grounds that it would drive any Tilly insane to have to go for more than four hours without food.

Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post. 

 Flangiprop: 

An open, tartlike pastry, 
the shell of which is baked 
in a bottomless band of metal
on a baking sheet, 
removed from the ring 
and filled with custard, cream, fruit, etc.  
It has a gelatinous base.

Mmm, dessert was delicious!

Reincarnation: do you believe in it?
*
Not at all.
*
Though I did in a previous life.

Wisdom I Like

14 Jan

Speaking of diets, which I was (two days ago; keep up, people), I am not bothering: I like food too much.  I am overweight, yes, but I just don’t care that much anymore.  In the past month I have twice read the same piece of wisdom: after a certain age, a woman must choose between her face and her figure.  It means that skinny older women are wrinkled and haggard looking (look at poor Hannah Waterman and her huge weight loss; her figure is great but her face looks dreadful) and we chubby older women might waddle down the street and need to buy two seats on a plane, but we look like infants.  I’ll plump for infantile any day: pass the chocolate.
