This has got to be the MEME of all MEME’s!

Ya’ know – there just aren’t enough hours and minutes in a day already, but I let myself get “sucked in” by NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month], and now I find a mystery novel oozing out of my fingers. The name will be Left Wheel Forward. “An older woman, confined to a wheelchair and in chronic pain, gets out and about with her teen-aged grandson to help solve the murder of a neighbor. In the process she begins to learn self-defense techniques a disabled person can use, and puts them to use when the murderers attack her. Her family is unenthusiastic at first, wanting to protect her, but in the end they are proud of her independence and initiative.”

I understand that sometimes “characters don’t want to go there,” and that summary might change some. As I envision it, the protagonist is very loosely autobiographical. The events are not. I’ve never been involved in a murder – hope never to be involved in a murder. If I were, I don’t think I would get involved to the extent that my heroine does – but then, maybe I would! Won’t know unless it should happen – and I DON’T want it to happen to any of my family, friends, or neighbors! It’s fun, however, to play around with “what if’s.”

You can keep track of my progress with the widget in the right-hand column. I trust I will accomplish the goal of 50,000 words in November.

[Post-a-Week] What Invention Do I Need Right Now?

The question of the day is: What invention, as in something not yet invented (jetpack, teleportation ring, time machine) do you most need right now?

My answer: A bionic body that would work better and without pain than my current body does. I’d like to be able to exercise without pain so I could lose weight. I’d like to be able to go places with my grandchildren – without pain! I’d like to be able to go to the mall – without pain!

A bionic body would take care of the joint and back problems. Maybe it would also take care of the muscle problems.

That’s what I (and Himself) need – right NOW!!

[Daily post] Who annoys you more, Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga? –

Filed under: Memes — by turtlemom3 @ 4:01 pm

Actually, what REALLY bothers me is that so much is made of such minimal personalities. All Bieber has going for him is his youth and incipient talent – which needs MUCH improvement, practice and seasoning. All GaGa has going for her is shock value. I’m not impressed with her singing ability. As a cartoon from the 40’s said, “OK – she can’t act, she can’t dance, she can’t sing…” She isn’t even enjoyable for anyone over 16 or 17.

The whole celebrity bit bugs me. Just being a celebrity IS NOT a reason for the Walk of Fame, for multiple photo layouts, nor for big concerts costing an unbelievable $75 and up per seat. For KIDS to go to??? To see half-talented, and shock-talented TWERPS??

Yeah – ALL this annoys me.

“Guy Movies”

From Patrick’s Place comes a meme that I really think I can get into:

name seven of your favorite action/adventure, comedy or dramas that might qualify for the category of “guy movies.”


  1. I could fill up the whole list with John Wayne movies! He is just the epitome of “guy,” to me, and his movies have been (and continue to be) enjoyed by all the guys I know. So, instead of listing all his movies and missing out on others, I’ll just list him at the top of the list: JOHN WAYNE
  2. Another actor who could fill up the list by himself is Bruce Willis, so I’ll just list him: BRUCE WILLIS
  3. Every Bond Movie except Never Say Never Again
  4. The Great Escape (1963) – but even better was The Great Escape II: The Untold Story that we had the foresight to tape off TV back in the late 80’s. It’s never been replayed that we know of, and it’s not out on DVD – or we’d buy it! The guys in my life love it.
  5. The Magnificent Seven (1960)
  6. Platoon (1986)
  7. Most of Mel Gibson’s films, especially Lethal Weapon I-IV

OK, that’s my “official” list, approved by Himself. I’d like to add a few more, though:


  1. Hudson Hawk – it’s Bruce Willis at his zaniest, and it’s great!
  2. Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 (2003, 2004)
  3. The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001, 2002, 2003)
  4. Star Wars 1-6
  5. Star Trek – all the movies, no matter how dorky – they are wonderful – according to my guys
  6. The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
  7. Westworld (1973)
  8. Dune (1984) also Dune (TV mini-series 2000)
  9. Indiana Jones movies

Well, that’s the list! But it will always be incomplete – we will discover other movies to be added in the future, and new movies are being made all the time.

Manic Monday on Tuesday!

Filed under: Memes — by turtlemom3 @ 6:20 am

Do you read an actual print newspaper? If so, how often?

Maybe once a month

What is your main source of news?

Internet MSM websites + individual stories on Google News

Do you believe that it’s possible for the media to be unbiased?

Yes. I have seen many stories without bias either to right or left. Just print the facts, not suppositions.

For the record, Manic Monday is a great source of Meme material!
