So, Day 1 of my Staycation was fine. I had lunch with my friend Betsy, teased her with the first chapter of The Body in the Loch, and ended the visit with a trip to Dairy Queen where I had a large Drumstick Blizzard. As I commented to Bathwater on 6/8 I love Blizzards.
The rest of the evening was spent in relaxation, not doing anything... well, that's not quite true, I did run the dishwasher, but that isn't really work.
I packed away the medical thermometer given to my by my employer, the large Orange Home Improvement retailer. Hopefully, I will never have to use the damn thing on a daily basis ever again. Unfortunately, I still need to complete the Associate Health Check before the time clock will let me punch in; I can't wait for that to disappear as well.
Here are some of the character names from The Body in Repose: Cookie Lindquist, Raj Beneh, Sheila Caine, and Antoine DeGuerre. Character names are very important. It's not unusual for me to spend several weeks choosing them. I guess, in a way, it's a lot like naming your children, which is odd, since why would you want to give a good name to a character you know is going to be bad?
The harvest has begun on my peaches. Some of them are fairly sizeable, some not so, being the size of walnuts.
Ooo peaches! You could make peach ice cream, peach yogurt, Fuzzy Navels!ReplyDelete
I never thought about a Russian civil war. Interesting! First OA, then Bibi, next Putie?
What ever happens in Russian will be Putin's fault, and history will know who to blame.Delete
Bibi is as gracious a LOSER as Thing 45.ReplyDelete
The only difference between Bibi and Loser #45 is Loser #45 had a reality TV show.Delete
I don't like Netanyahu at all so I was glad he was finally shown the door too!ReplyDelete
And his temper tantrums will now begin.Delete
Oh, you know there'll be a spike of cases in a few months with all the unvaccinated idiots getting one of the strains. It's going to happen. Maybe not as bad as in the middle of the pandemic, but it'll be noticeable. Especially in the Orange retailer you work for. It's redneck heaven.ReplyDelete
Love the peaches! Yum peach cobbler.
And Bibi having his ass handed to him was a good respite. Vlad is calling the insurrectionists 'political prisoners'. Well, he would know about that...
I love peaches! I'm surprised they're already ripe as far north as you are. I've finally got some green tomatoes starting to ripen but haven't picked my first one yet. There's also a lot of jalapeños ready to go.ReplyDelete
I was just telling me husband that Netanyahu is acting just like 45 when it comes to losing. That's proof enough for me that it's past time for him to go!
When I wrote stories I found that some character names came to me right away and sounded perfect. Others were really tough to pin down because I'd always think of other people with those names. Then I'd end up spending more time trying to think of original names than plot ideas and.. that's why I'm not a writer lol.ReplyDelete
I play around with they syllables and will look at old actors and actresses. The Vicar in The Body in the Loch was named for Leo McKern, and old, old actor.Delete
