Freakin’ Friday Bliss

No, I have not been nominated for the ABC award (Awesome Blog Award) I assume because of the No Awards message on my blog. Although I still get nominations for other awards, I am just too lazy to accept them because I don’t want to fulfill the obligations (but I must say I am honoured when nominated). I want to celebrate my fellow bloggers as much as the next person, but I have to do it when I am inspired. If it becomes a chore, then it is not as much fun.

Having said all of that, I am going to pretend that I have been nominated because I like the concept of finding a word or phrase that means something to me alphabetically, and because I can think of nothing else to post about today. I just read another blogger’s list and found it quite interesting—but they said it was not as easy as it seems. So here goes:

Beautiful Red

A: Okay, I am stuck already so I will go with Apple or Awesome (a word I never use, but I do eat apples) Wait, wait—Adam—the name of my firstborn

B: Bliss (you know I had to work it in somewhere, and it is my word of the year)

C: Connie—my walking partner—she makes me walk and so that is why I am in as good a shape as I am (you have to take my word for it—no pictures) and Chocolate for my Looney friend and me.

D: Doppelganger—apparently we all have one—mine is a singer in Niagara Falls

E: Excellent – always liked seeing that on a report card; hated Satisfactory

F: Fungus – aren’t mushrooms fungus?

G: Gee, as in gee golly gosh

H: Happy

I: Indigo—such a nice word for blue

J: John—my husband; and my brother John (these are two different Johns–nothing funny here); and while we are at it, Jim, my other brother

K: “Kay”, as in okay

L: Lou (my nickname); and lace

English: Lace Nederlands: kant

M: Money (hey, I’m honest)

N: Nickelback (why do so many people make fun of them – I don’t know their music but their name popped into my mind for some reason—maybe because I like underdogs)

O: Okay—the long form of “kay”

English: Earrings with pearls

P: Peggy – my sister and one of my favourite people; and Pearls

Q: I love the letter Q—guess I will go for quirky which is what I think of the letter Q

R: Restaurant—a place where I do not have to cook

S: Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory – my son gave me a bobble head of Sheldon—he is sitting on the shelf just above my head

T: Tyler – my second born; also Thumb is at the forefront of my mind today—cause I have an awful infection in mine and am going to have to seek medical help—hopefully not amputation

U: Understanding (I need this from the people I know and love)

V: Victory

W: Woo Hoo; or we’re as in “we’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time”—the hue and outcry of my university days

X: X-men – something my youngest son likes—video game, super heroes, movie—I am not sure—could be one and all

Y: Yes—(self-explanatory)

Z: Zephyr—don’t know why—just like this word

So what does this tell you about me—I love my family; I am quirky; and you do not want to say “no” to me—it can either be “kay”, okay or yes. And I will be trying to get a doctor’s appointment today before my thumb falls off—which is freaking hard to do in my neck of the words—I can hear the receptionist now—”I can give you an appointment in the first week of July, or last day of September, or January 2, 2015.”

Bliss is getting in to see the doctor when you need to—will update you on whether I achieved bliss today. What one thing would give you bliss today?

Oh, and by the way, I agree with the blogger twindaddy who said it was not as easy as it seems. Check out his 26.

  1. An infected thumb? I hope you feel better soon. And stop hitting people when they get the mystery photo right.

    • how did you know that is how I did it? must go check it out now–

      • LOL – good one TBM!!

      • She’s such an angry blogger. always demanding clues and easy mystery photos. Really, she has no pride. All you have to do is cheat.

      • I am not an angry blogger and I do have some pride–just not when it comes to mystery photo

      • Ok, you did it again!! You just made me laugh out loud at work :).

  2. Apart from Victory, there are some other REALLY great Vs ya know? ;)

  3. That ABC thing looks like fun. You’re right, his 26 was good. He probably just misses 22. ;) I hope you get into the doctor. In situations like yours we all need to know how to make a compress to draw out infection. It’s probably called something else, but you know what I mean. Be Blissful!

    • I will google it – I got an appt but not with my doctor–I will have to go out of town, but it is better than my thumb falling off

  4. Let us know how you make out with your thumb today :(

    • they did not cut it off yet – gave me some antibiotics – doc said: “sure is infected”–and he went to school for years for that!

      • Have some chocolate too – it’s the best medicine :)

      • I have to have something in my stomach for the night time pill–so I choose Hostess cupcakes

      • OMG!!!!! Hostess cupcakes are sooooo yummy!!! Now I need chocolate :).

      • if you ever eat them again– freeze them — the white stuff gets soft frozen and they are so good with a glass of milk

      • Oooh, I will have to remember that :).

  5. Good luck with you thumb hope you get in to see your doctor. Your list was fun, but I’m sure it’s not as easy as it looks. For O I would have gone with oranges, so juicy.

  6. Thumbs up for this post!

  7. I’m going to start calling you Lou now. Hope your thumb gets better and you are very inventive for tacking the abc thing. I don’t know if I could come up with that! Happy weekend, Lou. ;).

    • I have faith in you — after awhile it gets to be fun–but a few did stump me–and I would love for you to call me Lou

  8. Hope all goes well with your Dr’s visit.

  9. I hope you get to keep your thumb. I agree with zephyr too – its highly underused.

    • so far so good except the doc said if it gets worse to go to emergency — so I am going to faithfully take my antibiotics

      I am glad you like my z word

  10. This looks fun! I also thought of quirky for Q…. hey, quirky is the new cool. ;) Sorry about your thumb but looking through the comments, looks like you made it out with it intact so far. And I love Sheldon from BBT! Bazinga.

    • Snap! So far so good with my thumb–antibiotics make me tired though–wonder if anyone else is affected this way,
      I love Quirky – makes us more interesting

  11. This is very creative and, like everything else we write, revealing. I love your word choices. Zephyr! So random and off the beaten path. No doubt why I like coming over here so much.
    Have a good night, Lou Ann!
    Lisa

    • I am glad you like to come here–I look forward to your posts too–random and off the beaten track–I like that description

  12. I think K and O were my favourites :) But I like words that begin with z, and to be honest I don’t have a clue why

  13. Oh, I hope you get help for your thumb! And I hope it heals quickly. I ditto the “thumbs up” sentiment. :)

    • Am on antibiotics – doc says the next step is the emergency room so hopefully this will work – thanks

  14. Hope you got to see the doctor and your thumb is getting better. That sounds really nasty. Yes mushrooms are fungus, but I prefer to ignore the fact, as I love eating them. :)

    • got some antibiotics so hope it works–
      I love mushrooms–so they are good fungus

  15. ‘Doppleganger’..??? I actually have one? Wonder who/what mine is…

    My bliss at the moment is on a serious note…it would be to see some improvement in the condition of my son’s friend…Diane

  16. Your ABCs are great. =D Especially liked Quirky and Sheldon. And you’re right; it’s really not as easy as it seems. It took me a while before I could decide on some of mine! Though C was a no brainer. ;)

    • will have to go back and read yours again — I am sure I must have already read them as I follow you quite closely –glad you like Sheldon and quirky

  17. I never nominate you for awards because you don’t accept them!

    Right, thats it lady, the next time i get one….. ;)

    xx

    • no, I do not expect awards and you are right not to nominate me–you are a lovely lady — don’t want to upset you!

      • Ha ha ha, fair doo’s ;)

        Xx
