365 Creativity Project–Day 25

My journal entry:

Some pictures:

Camellia and bud.

I am so glad this day went well. There were a few idiots out driving, but I am always prepared for their exploits. We had an awesome lunch at Hudson’s Hickory House. I woke up craving barbecue, so we went there. Mom recommended that I get a coleslaw to go with my pork plate, and it made the meal even better.

I hope your Friday was pleasant, and wish you a peaceful weekend full of creative energy.

Beginning A Project For 2012

I am hoping to accomplish something creative every day forward for the year. Much of this will entail writing, but there will be some artwork, photography, crafts, and whatever else I come up with.

For today I took a picture of the books I am reading daily:


The two at the bottom I am reading aloud with my Mom as a Bible study. Our church is doing Read The Bible For Life this year, and although I do not attend, we are participating in the study. The other five I chose to read this year for personal edification.

The following is a scan of the hand written journal entry I made this evening:

Journal 1-10-20120001

I mentioned my new Invicta watch and I guess I should show you what it looks like:


I chatted with Alex a bit today and learned he is enjoying Hawaii. He has begun writing again, which I think is marvelous because Alex is very talented.

I am running out of time so this will be my creation for today. Stay tuned for more as the days go by.

My Scores on the Alcohol Test…

Congratulations! You’re 109 proof, with specific scores in beer (60) , wine (66), and liquor (95).
Screw all that namby-pamby chick stuff, you’re going straight for the bottle and a shot glass! It’ll take more than a few shots of Wild Turkey or 99 Bananas before you start seeing pink elephants. You know how to handle your alcohol, and yourself at parties.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 44% on proof
You scored higher than 90% on beer index
You scored higher than 93% on wine index
You scored higher than 93% on liquor index

Go here to take it yourself: The Alcohol Knowledge Test. The best score I have seen so far is on Paste and Color by MCP herself.

I found out I am A Life Blogger Edited Post

I found out I am A Life Blogger

My blog is the story of my life – a living diary.

If it happens, I blog it. And make it as entertaining as possible.

Go to this Blog to find out what kind of Blogger you are: Dark Wine of Life.

I seriously am getting fed up with MSN’s antics. I have been trying to repost this entry for over an EIGhT hours because it showed up wrong and the Space is unavailable. Is anybody else having MSN problems?

I hate this!

On a good note my portfolio continues to grow on BlogShares. I am quite pleased.

I am reading through everyone’s blogs. At least I can still see them. Good stuff out there today.
