When you got nothing. Like this morning, for me, for this...and I have a headache--have had for about a week now, so I'm finding it hard to focus. Which means a blog of Margie's random ramblings.
I have the news on this morning and I just heard that Trump is accusing Ted Cruz of stealing votes in Iowa to win the primary. It occurs to me that if you wrote a novel with what has happened during this election--what with the over-stuffed billionaire, a former first lady, a grassroots old guy, and neurosurgeon who can't put a sentence together in ten minutes, it would seem far-fetched. Nobody would take the novel seriously because "that could never happen".
Ahh, but it is. And we're living it, folks.
Do you write linear or no? I usually do. But, on Saturday, a conversation began in my head between Ana and her former bff, Lexie and so, I wrote it down. I think it changed the shape of their friendship. Like a lot of things, I don't know if it will stay, but it certainly helped me to see a new side to their friendship.
I love the food videos that people post on Facebook. Especially the "Tasty" ones. They make believe that I can cook. I have actually tried some of the recipes to success. For years, I've believed I can't cook, but it wasn't that I couldn't cook, it was that I believed I couldn't.
Anyone watching the new episodes of The X-Files? Love me some Mulder. I was a fan from the beginning. And my favorite episodes were the monster and conspiracy-free episodes. This last episode was one of those and it was so much fun. Like Scully, I'd forgotten how fun they could be.
Not that I don't believe in conspiracies, because I do. But, mine revolve more around things like, "If there were a cure for cancer, would it be shouted out or buried?" Think of charities and corporations that could go bankrupt if a cure was found--especially if it was cheap or natural.
Okay, that's all I got today. Have a great day!
PS--Do you ever wonder if Oprah regrets giving up her show? Yeah, I just saw the Weight Watchers commercial. At one time, she had a lot of sway--people bought books because she said so. They ate what she ate, listened to the doctors she said to listen to...so I wonder, once you've had the sort of influence, is it hard to surrender? Or was it liberating?
