Winding Down with Naomi

Hmm...what is this all about, really? It's me jotting down ideas about things that go on in my life, and some occassional pictures of things I've seen and done.

Stuff and nonsence

Cueballs of the world-- unite!

Alright, maybe not! But I've met a few of these lately, and verified that I once was a cueball, to the satisfaction of many.

Saw some beautiful blue skies today--early this morning, before the sun was up--some great morning stars too! and then this afternoon, with great clouds.

Made some brownies for "work" and a mentor dinner tomorrow, I've been busy tonight!!
Off to sleep time now!!

As I recall, nonsense is still spelled with two s's and no c's (This is me being a jerk. It's so I don't get kicked out of the club.).

And I also am a cueball.

Becca--your sentence structure should be:

and I am a cueball also

or
and I am also a cueball...

and you shouldn't start a sentence with AND

(can I be in the jerk club too??)

Ahem...

It is not a jerk club.

It is the obnoxious boors club.

And no you can't join. :-)

(She was using old/archaic structures--it still works).

The real question is why did Becca shave her head? Or does cueball mean something else?

Didn't Becca shave her head in support of cancer research, as did Nao?

... I thought the obnoxious boors club faded out of existance... and we don't have a jerk club -- it wouldn't stick together long!

Perhaps I spend too much time with alternate languages, but it seems quite common to use a conjunction in the secondary position of a sentence. If you were arguing that the "I" and "am" should not be separated as they would be seen only in one word in many different languages. It seems that this is one verb in English where using only one word could actually work!

The revised standard sentence, then, is "Am also a cueball."

The jerk club is comprised of Scott, Mike and I with honourary members Alison and Paul. Ben's application is still pending approval. Mainly it is because we spend too much time together.
