Knuckle Up


You know when tattoo people have the tattoos across their knuckles?  One hand says, 'love' ... the other says, 'hate'? There is even a blog, appropriately titled KnuckleTattoos.


Yeah, well I got to thinking about things that would be suitable for my knuckles, things like:

  • LEFT RITE
  • HOTT COLD
  • NICE MEAN
  • LUKE WARM
  • CALM DOWN
  • JUMP SHIP
  • READ MORE
  • SLOW DOWN
  • FEED MEEE
  • BEEP BEEP
  • GAME OVER

The Situation



What's that? All of my tweets archived in a book (including an index)?! Sign me up!


I have wanted one of these for a while. The problem is I cannot come up with a title. I am stuck ... I just cannot figure out what encapsulates @LizRambles ... BUT I have compiled a working list of possible titles:


  • LizRambles? ... more like, LizMumbles
  • A Series of Unfortunate Tweets
  • LizRambles and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
  • Wit, Wisdom, and Mundane Nonsense
  • Beast of Burden
  • Virtual Musings
  • Life As Tweets
  • 140 Characters or Bust
  • Tweet It, Don't Spray It
  • Tweets Gone Wild
  • I'm Not Here to Make Friends
  • No One Likes a Gloater
  • Expendable.
  • Infinite Tweets
  • Volume One
  • ... bums on the outside, tweets inside.

Progressive Thoughts in the Shower

I took a shower this morning.
While there, this is what was going through my head:


  • Wow, my new body wash smells really good.
  • like, really good
  • I wonder if it tastes good
  • ... probably not.
  • Nonetheless, I hope I am never in a Donner Party situation ... I would probably be the first entree.

12 April 2012

That one time I thought I got a cheesy compliment from a friend

Story of my life.

I logged onto Facebook yesterday and saw this on my wall (or do I say, 'timeline' instead of wall now? Either way I don't like it F-book is a hot, ugly mess these days.)

Nonetheless, a friend posted a link to, 33 Animals Who Are Extremely Disappointed In You with the caption, "Number 21 is talking to you!"


  • So I clicked the link. You should, too!
  • It's hilarious.
  • ... and because I have the attention span of a 4 year old at times, by the time I read #3 I had no idea which number "is talking to you!"
  • Oh well, I continued through the list.
  • I really liked numbers 12, 19, 20, and 26.
  • and then I got down to number 33
  • Actually, this corgi thinks you're doing just fine. Because screw those other guys. "Keep up the great work," says this corgi, "I'm proud of you!"
  • For whatever reason, I was convinced this is what the F-book caption pointed me towards.
  • So I thought:
    • wow
    • that's really nice
    • ... and I am really undeserving
    • ... and I'm now just smiling
    • ... this really made my day
    • ... how thoughtful!
  • whomp, whomp.
  • I then re-read that F-book message, which directed me back to #21.
  • This otter is disappointed that you never finished Infinite Jest.
    • fitting, and deserving
