Saturday, November 1


It's November again which means NaBloPoMo and yes, I'm going to clog up your rss readers for the month... or at least die trying.  I'll keep the majority of it painless and short, I swear.  Most days I'll just be putting out those little things that I just don't take the time to put to paper, so to speak.  Stuff I find that makes me laugh, stuff I like, stuff I do, stuff, and maybe some stuff on the side.  You know, stuff. 

For instance, stuff like my latest online service addiction: picnik.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Photoshop but when it comes to photo editing, why turn on the memory-beast of PS when I can do it all online.  I've got a premium membership which allows me all sorts of inexplicable doohickeys and I spend far too much time playing with photos, especially those not quite right photos and making them more oomphy.

And these are the kind of things that make me happy.  No one asked me to write this.  I just like the convenience and thought I'd share.

Oh hell, I just wrote this post because I wanted to try out the word oomphy.  Ooooommmphy.  I like saying it in my head.  ooooomphy oooooomphy ooooooomphy.

Hey, did I mention I've been eating copious amounts of my daughters Hallowe'en haul in order to keep it out of her hyperactive paws?  She turns wild when she has the stuff.  Anyhow, I've made a sacrifice and decided to eat the candy to save it from the landfill and denting our dental insurance plan.

I don't think it's very noticeable that I ate too much sugar before writing this post.  Oh and this would be a weird place to mention I reviewed the new Epson Aritisan 800 All-in-One printer over at my review site.  Awkward segue is my middle name.

Anyhow, I'm in.   You hear that Chag, Jessica, and Kyla?  Count me in.  I'm NaBloPoMoing again.

Good luck!

I'm going to have to check out picnik.

Ya know you are putting yourself out there to be called an oompa loompa, right? (SOOO sorry for puttin' that song in yer head!)

Hey, at least you're still typing okay & not going so fast you miss the space bar & stuff.

I am completely miffed that we didn't get any Bottle Caps candy this year. It's my favorite Nov.1 indulgence.

You're brave.

And ooomphy.

Kyla said...

I'm doing it, too. This confirms the diagnosis of The Crazy, I think.

daysgoby said...


me too. I hunger for the oomphy. (I think)

Heather said...

Ooomphy is pretty fun. I also like pulchritudinous.

Words are fun!

Mimi said...

Oooh, I was going to be all 'oomphy' but I've been totally distracted by 'pulchritudinous'.

And I think I'm gonna do it, too. One day down, 29 to go, right?

I'll clear my reader.

i am already rethinking this whole posting every day thing... I have one post of nothingness and ideas that are one sentence long. The end.

I'm not joining you on the nablopomo thing this year - I value the sleep too much to write every day. I'm with you on the candy though.

My middle name is Asshole.

Hello! New to your blog here.

Pulchritudinous? I'm gonna have to look that one up. Oomphy is pretty good, though. Sadly, I found out about NaBloPoMo after midnight. Also, I've already started my novel for NaNoWriMo. (I seem to be suffering from insanity more than usual, since I also made my son's Halloween costume this year ... and I work full-time away from home.)

Look forward to reading you this November!

Cheers to 30 days of motherbumping craziness!

I am SO checking out picnik, PS takes FOREVER to load up.
