I began the week by posting some pictures of the Norwich Free Academy Foliage that could be found at Amanda's high school and in my post I mentioned that I wasn't sure what the foliage was doing this year as some was at peak, some was way past, and even more of it hadn't done anything. That prompted the following comment from my nut of a friend from Scrappin' ... With Life -
Callie Ann said...It was kind of funny to me, too, but it made perfect sense!
I guess the tree's are like people
You have your early birds.
You have your ones that go with the majority.
You have your lazy butt ones that just wanna hang out.
Hmm that is kinda funny to me.
This week's Manic Monday - Bite post was a short review of the books I had just finished reading, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn - both part of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series - as well as my thoughts on the benefits of becoming an immortal - were one actually able to ever do that! Vampires are quite the hot commodity these days so I'm sure I'm not the only one who's given some thought to being bitten on the neck but Travis made a very good point in his comment -
Travis said...Travis is right, depending on which Dracula legend you're reading he's definitely one scary bloodsucker and as for Noseferatu ... shudder! There's definitely no Edward Cullen there, that's for sure! I wonder just when it was that vampires became sexy and not scary??
Well, I guess it all depends on which of the vampire legends or mythologies you follow. The trend in urban fantasy is to make it into a lifestyle.
But don't forget about the Dracula legends and the Nosferatu! Those are some skeery monsters!
On Tuesday I was Finding Fantastic Fall Foliage and a few crows in the local cemetery. Personally I find that the crows tend to creep me out a little bit but Amanda likes them as do some of my other readers including Airhead 55 who lives about a little over an hour west of me here in Connecticut and who also happens to be Prince to the charming Princess Patti!
S.p.i.d.e.r.s. I run like a little girl when I see one :o)
What scares me most of all is not a "thing" but a possibility. It's that I'll always be alone.
You rock, just for trying. I would never be able to drive into that city let alone go there for that. You're awesome!
Q: Why do squirrels swim on there back?
A: to keep their nuts dry.
Aw nuts! Everyone have a great Sunday and thanks again for not only reading but for commenting! As always, I appreciate them all and who knows, maybe if you leave one, you'll find yourself in next week's Comments on Comments post!
