Waking to a blanket of fog engulfing the cul-de-sac this morning was not exactly motivating; however, I managed a good breakfast, some exercise, taking care of kitties and checking e-mail, eager to begin my day. While preparing breakfast, I had to acquiesce; I’m just not proficient at some of life’s little skills. Then again, neither is Martha Stewart; how disappointing.
For your amusement, I’ve created a list of some common endeavors which seem to evade the OCD in me. Can you identify with any?
WordPress, Pinterest –Still trying to get the knack of these sites. And I joined Pinterest because? Certainly not because I enjoy spending countless hours looking at dog and cat photos, although I’ll have to admit, they are adorable!
Fixing hair –I’m blessed with a full head of hair; however, it takes at least 40 minutes to blow dry and style and that’s just to get it looking neat. Putting it up, braiding, clips, etc., I’m all thumbs.
Water-skiing –Not in this lifetime. Why can’t you just start in a standing position?
Electrical wiring – Amps, volts, ohms, watts, neutral/ground, breaker/fuse, pigtail, busbar, gang, splice, Yikes!
Planting tulip bulbs –Wondered why the stem was so short; guess I should have planted the root side down???
Pruning trees/shrubs –What pruning, just chainsaw the hell out of them!
Clipping cats’ nails -Not unless they’re dazed and confused first.
Using an iPod –My daughter donated her old ones to me…haven’t used one yet. What’s wrong with the radio?
Source code –Per Wikipedia, “…any collection of computer instructions (possibly with comments) written using some human-readable computer language …” Human computers or computer humans?
Zumba -Another reason to wriggle, writhe, bump and bounce and pull my back out!
Sewing tulle –I’d rather get a root canal. Needle gets caught in holes all the same.
Angry Birds – Have no clue what this is, how to play, never owned a Wii or Xbox, etc. but I used to play a mean game of PacMan…waccka, waccka!
Choosing between a comma and semicolon -MS Word keeps highlighting my commas, wanting me to use semicolons when they should be used for emphasis, no?; yes. Arrggg.
Skimcoating -There has to be an easier, faster, less dusty way to make a wall smooth.
Competing with my sisters in Scrabble -I’m the youngest and they cheat…enough said.
Hope you enjoyed my bit of joviality for the day. Peace – Out ;D
