Shit the duck up.
My sister wasn’t telling me to “shit the duck up” but those are the words that came through in the email and made me laugh and I wanted to share them. She also used the phrase “hold good toilet”. As I told her, all toilets should be hold good toilets. Apparently she meant “childhood toilet” still waiting for the story on that one.
I have a ton of misc. to share but nothing to make a good solid blog so I was just going to shit the duck up but now I’ve decided to write.
Yesterday Mitch, my ex-husband, and I signed the papers purchasing my childhood home (where he currently resides with the girls) from my mother’s estate, read: my siblings. They wanted out. I want to wait and see if the housing market continues to improve et voila! Now Mitch and I own both our houses. It’s a new take on divorce. I’m really excited for Mitch. Since he stopped drinking, he has so many new interests. He’s planning for work on the house. He took surfing lessons last weekend. I hope he starts cooking again, he did that really well even when he was drinking. So that’s good misc.
When I clicked on my name on WordPress this morning, the drop down menu showed me that I have two blogs. Two (2) count ’em! I have Misc. Maggie for what she’s worth and now I have Tipsy Lit! Tipsy Lit is the brain child of Ericka Clay at Creative Liar, writer and cat glitterer extraordinaire. I joined the Tipsy Lit book club on Goodreads and now I’m an author on another blog. Bam! Just like that. I’m not a real writer like the other women on Tipsy Lit but I am able to write. I think I’m the oldest member of the crew so I can hold their hair if they throw up.
The new blog’s first post will be out on August 1. So go follow us and see our displays of intellectual prowess and how we can read, drink and walk a fine line all at the same time. Tipsy Lit is also on Facebook and Pinterest, so Face and Pin us.
I will be a submissions editor for essays and short fiction on the sight, as well as writing about reading and drinking. Which are both things I do quite well.
The Tipsy Lit announcement leads me to another announcement:
I’m getting a Twitter. I never ever thought I would type those words. I never thought it would happen to me but I’m getting a Twitter. Can I get a Twitter if I don’t have a smart phone? I should look into that. I need the Twitter because Tipsy Lit book club meetings are held on Twitter so I can Twit.
And here are some Misc. Pictures from this summer:
That’s all I got.
Derwood and I are going camping this weekend. I haven’t been camping since August, 1977 (36 years). The day I returned from that camping trip Elvis had died. All pop culture icons need to be careful this weekend, I don’t want anyone to get hurt just because I’m camping.
