Funny Friday Photos: Appalled Cats

Happy Friday!

I hope you all had an awesome week!

My week started with deciding to be a stay-at-home mom/wife/writer for a while, unless the perfect job shows up. Maybe something like this one:

I could definitely roar and rapidly claw at people in angry velociraptor style for $15 an hour.

The thing about staying at home and pretending to be a successful writer is that I won't have a paycheck coming in. I've been working since I was fifteen years old, so it feels very weird to not be able to count on my own paycheck.

I will admit, though, I'm loving writing for several hours each morning. I've figured out a solution to some structural issues at the first part of Through the Fairy Ring. I've reverse-outlined about the first quarter of the story. Hopefully there won't be the need for more structural overhaul, and the rest of the outlining will go more quickly.Then I can go back and start rewriting. I get to pretend to be a successful writer for as long as my savings holds out, so I am going to start pinching pennies to get as much time as possible!

We didn't really have a winner for funniest photo last week, so we'll get right to the new ones.

And lately my phone battery dies really fast.

I'd say Irvine wins.

Also known as the WTF face.

The optimistic elevator.

Now I'm going to have to check out our library to see if we have any rude books.


Am I the only one who has thought this every time they hear a dog is a Whippet?
My favorite today is the appalled cat.

Have a great weekend!

Funny Friday Photos: Near-Death Musical Experiences

Happy Friday, everyone!

It looks like I'll get a writing office, complete with Pokemon decorations on the walls. I'm just happy that Boy 1 will start going to sleep before 11:00pm again. Maybe if school started off better for them, having their own rooms would have gone better. Hopefully things will improve, but for now they both wanted to share a room, so I get an office!

I've been editing Through the Fairy Ring, and have developed a little more of the Fairy lineages, which has better informed the plot, and given more motivation to both the Pixie Queen's actions, and Edlark's. I love the name I came up with for one of the Fairies of the insect-air lineage. His name is Terlach of Frid-Adhar, and he's one of the more nasty, and humorous, of the characters in TTFR. It was fun to do the research to develop the fictional lines. I don't know if I'll call them clans or not. Calling the groups clans seems cliche.

Thank you Lexa, Suzi, Veronica, David and Joe for commenting last week! Veronica, I'll do a special post with some pictures of the writing room, and some other photos of places special to me, once I get things rearranged (again).

Here are this week's new photos. Last week there wasn't a clear winner.

Isn't that just how it feels to have an itch scratched in just the right way?

Does this dog only have three legs? I think so!

Must have been very preoccupied that morning.

That is so what meeting goals feels like.

I hold my breath each time I look at this picture.

A little jazz will see you through.

I love this picture. It's so pretty!
My favorite is the Near-Death Metal woman. It made me laugh, while the rest were more "chucklers."

Funny Friday Photos:Cats and Frogs Don't Mix

Happy Friday to everyone!

Well, the summer break ends for my kids on Monday. I'm having adjustment issues with not going back to school, myself. I am looking forward to writing while they're at school though, for as long as it takes for me to find a job.

This week has been a writing bust, because I've worked late all this week to paint, clean and arrange Boy 1's room. Last night was the first trial night of both boys sleeping in their very own rooms for the first time ever. Boy 1 said it didn't go so good for him, so I'm waiting to see if they decide to share a room after all. If they do, I'll have a writing office upstairs, which would be nice. I'm trying hard not to sabotage their room choices in my favor.

Thank you so much, Suzi, Lexa, Cindy, Joe, Veronica, and David, for visiting and commenting. Based on your choices, here is last week's winner, with three votes.

Here's some new photos for a new week!

Its little paw!!

Honesty is the best policy...

Looking for a very specific skill set, I see.

This made me laugh. I have no explanation. It just did.

Doesn't everyone need a pet thing?

The kids at school would "whoooop, whoooop" on the way out of the building during fire drills.
It was EXTREMELY hard not to join in.

It just can't.

One pun. Sorry, David.

In case you need it, this is an i-Pod.

My favorite this week was the cat with a frog in its throat.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Funny Friday Photos: Cats and Plasma

Yay! It's Friday!

Last night I was working on structural revisions for Through the Fairy Ring, and had a mini-freak out. There's so much to do!

I'm using the book Wonderbook by Jeff VanderMeer to guide revisions, and while I'm confident I'll not only have a better book when I'm done, but also be a better writer, it's such an in-depth process. I talked myself down by recognizing I've taken two years to write the first draft, and the process will continue to take as long as the process will take. I need to just get in there and "just keep working, just keep working."

Thanks so much to everyone who visited last week, including those who commented (Joe, Suzi, Veronica and Lexa.) Amazingly, almost everyone chose the same photo as their favorite, which was:

Ready for the new photos? Here you go!

A Febreze bomb!

They have the same set up in hell.

Would scare me...


Part of me wants one, the other part is scared of it.

I really liked the plasma ball cat paw. I love that its whole paw lit up.

What's your favorite?
