#SoCS Dec. 29/18 – Ask Another

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ask someone else.” Either ask someone for a prompt word or, if you can’t, turn on a TV or a radio and choose a word from the first sentence you hear. Enjoy!

Squat.

Yes, that is the word I chose after switching on the TV and finding Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigolo on the screen!

So, what can I write about squat?

Diddly squat. I do like that phrase… Where did it come from? Apparently it is thought to have come from the US, where the word doodle might have been used first – meaning poops. Then doodly squat turned to diddly squat, meaning the least amount, or not knowing anything at all!

But I lie… I do know about squatting.

It’s apparently the preferred way to go back home… except I wasn’t born there, so I am happy to sit atop my ivory throne and do the do, if you know what I mean.

Though the West has certainly caught on to the fact that squatting is the natural way to go, and just yesterday I saw an ad for a squat stool, rather like a child’s toilet stool, to help them up when they are toilet training. This time it’s for adults, and you are supposed to put your feet on it when you go, whilst sitting on your ivory throne (because you are too modern for the real squat, you know!) so your legs are squishing up against your body, rather like if you were squatting... And that is supposed to be the next best thing…

Jees, did I really write about toilet habits?

Sorry, that is true Stream Of Consciousness for you!

I could have just told you of the aches and pains caused by me trying the exercise version of the squat, in the 30 day squat challenge a few years ago… but that would just have been tame… and no, I didn’t get the buns of steel!!

#SoCS Dec. 22/18 – Tin

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tin.” Use it as a word or find a word with “tin” in it, and base your post on that word. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

Starting from the new year, I am going to be making some changes in my life.

First things first, I need to remove all the tins of biscuits and boxes of chocolates that I was gifted by the lovely children in school…

Speaking of biscuit tins, aren’t some of those tins just amazing? I was given one that looks like a retro radio this year. So cool!

The other thing I need to do is take a partial blogging break… It has to be done. If I am going to get this manuscript ready for an agent/editor, I’ll need to cut back on my weekly challenges, of which I have one almost daily to take part in… That will be a toughie, but it’s got to be done…

So there you have it It won’t be goodbye… I will be back, after I finish writing…

#SoCS Dec. 15/18 – Hairy

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hairy.” Use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use it to mean more than one thing. Enjoy!

It’s that time of year. 

The cold has set in and you wrap youself up as much as you can to buffer yourself from the chill.

One huge benefit (for us laydees, anyway) is that we don’t feel the need to defuzz with great regularity, because who’s gonna get their legs out in this weather??!!

So, 

Of skirts and dresses, please be wary
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Deck the legs with many a layer-y
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now our tights and jumpers
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Tis the season to stay hairy
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Ritu 2018

But, have you ever ended up in a bit of a hairy situation because you genuinely haven’t been bothered about your bodily follicle growth in the winter? I did, the other day, when I went for a bra fitting, and I had to lift my arms for the tape measure to go round my ribs…

Eeeks! is all I can say!

Adn thinking of hairy… I may need to defuzz next week, as we have our work Christmas do! 

Double Eeeks!

#SoCS Dec. 8/18 – Musical

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “musical.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

I do love a good musical, don’t you?

From as long as I recall, shows and films filled with song and dance have been a huge part of my life.

It started as a youngster when the type of musical I was exposed to was of the Bollywood kind. a three-hour long extravaganza filled with story, and peppered, every ten minutes, with colourful songs and dancing.

That started my musical thirst.

As I started school, I took a great interest in anything drama based, and we were given the opportunity to go to several theatre musicals, such as Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, when it first started, Cats, The Phantom Of the Opera… I loved them all! 

I would sing the tunes in my own way regularly (still do!)

And even now, though the opportunities are less, I try to get a chance to watch them. Last year we went to see 42nd Street for our anniversary, which was brilliant.

I’ve even seen Jerry Springer, The Musical!

#SoCS Dec. 1/18 – Ma

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ma.” Use it as a word or find a word with “ma” in it. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

Maybe I’m a cheatin’, but I am writing this on Friday evening, scheduling it for the morning, as I am off out out!

My mamma friends (The Tootie Frooties) and I are off for our Christ-Mates meal tonight, and though I shan’t be hung over, I am pretty sure I won’t be thinking of posting as soon as I get up!

So, it’s a short and sweet one this time!

Have a great Saturday!
