Feeling anxious and full of self doubt, (more than usual,) this past week. So thought maybe I’d monster it up and attempt to rhyme myself out of it. Kinda worked… oh, and it’s October, so, you know…

Post-Holiday Doldrumoids

January 2, 2019

doldrumoid redo 2019
We’ve always known of their existence. However, for the first time ever, we’ve captured in full, listless despondency, images of what experts commonly refer to as the Post-Holiday Doldrumoid.
 
This evidence suggests that a Doldrumoid pandemic is in full swing. Action must be taken in order to contain it.
 
Effective methods for lessening the effects are as follows:
 
1. Ignore them. Doldrumoids have been known to eventually lose interest in their host and reluctantly disappear after a week or two.
 
2. Keep that crunchy Christmas tree up for another month along with the exterior icicle lights and inflatable snow globe on your lawn. Do this while continuing to consume cookies three times a day and otherwise ignoring the fact that the holidays are over. This method seems to keep the Doldrumoids at bay, but leaves the door wide open for Lackus Deselfrespectus spors to take hold.
 
There are no easy answers, but…
 
3. For those of us who need to get back to business… pronto, there are some drastic measures that can be implemented.
 
They are as follows:
 
• Take the tree, inflatable snow globe and exterior lights down.
 
• Box up holiday decorations.
 
• Hoist boxes of holiday decorations up into garage rafters.
 
• Ditch those stale cookies and eat a salad.
 
• Strap that fitbit on and go to the gym
 
• Spit the past-due eggnog out, cease posting memes and make that client/employer deadline.
 
• Close mouth, wipe drool off chin.
 
In the event none of the above methods prove effective, one can always hold on until February 14 when a virulent strain of Guiltus Cupidus overcomes the weakened Doldrumoids, offering minimal relief to some sufferers.
 
This has been an important public service announcement. You may now return to your regularly scheduled program.
 
Thank you.

pricklyBeware of the Croakipoke. The females are known to croon an irresistible tune and not unlike the siren’s song, may lure you into giving a loving caress that will surely be your undoing.

Inktober Day 25 “Prickly.”

Inktober 2018 Day 24

October 24, 2018

It is once 3 cups of coffee have been consumed that the Karatebelligerati first makes it’s appearance. Decaf is your only defense!

weak

I’ve fallen way behind on Inktober. Been lugging a Feebleabler around for the past few days and he had weakened my resolve temporarily.

Inktober Day 15 “Weak” (late)

Exhausted Star Precious

Merged 3 days of Inktober prompts because of running behind. Came up with an exhausted, zombie starfish receiving a precious pearl… you know, the usual.

Inktober Days 7, 8 and 9. Prompts were and are “Exhausted,” “Star,” and “Precious.”

Inktober Day 4 “Spell”

October 4, 2018

spell

This little miss resides in my devices, attempting to prevent misspellings and unnecessarily changing my words. But where is she when I need legitimate typo protection? Where I ask you?

My fourth post for “Inktober.” The prompt was “Spell.”

Tranquil

Never speak it’s name. Ahem…you-know-who is arguably the most dangerous of all the monsters. If this critter smells, tranquility, contentment or creativity of any kind, it quickly gets to work. In a voice barely distinguishable from your own you’ll hear: “Who do I think I am?” “I’m just a hack.” “Why do I even try?”

Fear Scoldemort… whoops, I said the name!

My second post for “Inktober.” The prompt was “Tranquil.”

Kvetchenaggis

Beware the dread Poisonous Kvetchenaggis. Left untreated, this wee, murmuring monster could burrow into your ear, filling it with all manner of negative blather.

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d kick off the season with Inktober. I’ve been pretty much keeping up but forgot to post them here. So, I will be posting, in rapid succession the first four.

Hope I can keep up for the whole month. Wish me luck!
