Freaky Friday… hmmmm.

Anything goes?  That’s what the schedule says.  I have to do what the schedule says.  The schedule is the boss of me.

Well, crap.  I’ve got nuthin’.

Oh, I do have potatoes.  My potato plants are planning to take over the world.

Potato Jungle

Or we could discuss the one semi-silly scene (my only complaint) in the opening episode of Game of Thrones.  Daenerys was walking along a pier and saw a young girl playing with a ball.  The girl turned into some freaky hissing zombie clown black-magic assassin who could walk on air/water/fly/disappear at will but she was quickly forgotten when Sir Barriston Selmy pledged his oath.  Man, I’d be too busy looking over my shoulder for that freaky hissing zombie clown black-magic child assassin to pay much attention to anything else.

Creepy assassination attempt.

What is it about children in a horror film that is so horrifying?  Ah, I remember– it’s the Uncanny Valley.  Which is forever fascinating.  And scary.  Let’s reiterate:  The Uncanny Valley is a concept in robotics which holds that when human replicas look and act almost, but not perfectly, like actual human beings, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers.

Guillermo del Toro anyone?

Thomas Jefferson and I share a birthday – April 13th.  Our anniversary is coming up as well – the 17th.  My husband planned something special, which we’ve postponed for a week, but I suspect we’ll go to dinner at least.

Thanks so much for all your support.  I’m definitely feeling better.

Hope you have a great weekend.  See you Monday!

    I had no idea potato plants were so big! Great jungle!

  2. I am glad you feel better. I think you need a week at the Deepak Chopra place in Carlsbad. Very restorative.

    Borrowing from my old doctor after a concussion — try not to hit your head get sick again. I bet you weren’t trying to get sick the first time!

  3. Wait… hit my head? Steph, are you saying I need a good bump on the head? Or possibly a kick in the pants? Trying to improve every day. Thanks sweetie.

  4. Oh Sara, just wait. They’ll get waaaaaaay bigger. And then they’ll produce poisonous potato tomatoes.

    Oh how could I forget your birthday my darling Julia ….

    Happy Birthday my sweet

    As for the rest know how you have been feeling I have just felt rundown over the last 8 weeks or so and as you know haven’t even been visiting all the wonderful blogs that you and Marylin and Penny and Jaye produce, to name a few.

    Had some tests a week or so ago that have come back negative, so she sent me to give more blood this morning and is arranging for a hospital visit in the next few weeks. Having said that, apart from the hiatus hernia I am beginning to feel not to bad.

    Like you and Irwin we celebrate on the 17th too, 37th this year , I think McDonalds drive through will do

    Love hugs and kisses to you both xxxxxxxxxx

  8. I wouldn’t mind a McDonald’s drive thru, Tom. Sort of been craving junk food lately. You feel better and give Ishbel a kiss for me.

  9. Thanks, Anny. Laundry actually sounds like fun right now. Hate cleaning, enjoy laundry.

  10. Jaye says:

    Happy Birthday, Julia!

  11. How can you say you’ve got nothin’, Julia? You’ve got potato plants threatening to take over, and in Colorado we expect for snow on Monday and planting a garden in taboo until Mother’s Day.
    AND you’ve got lots and lots of birthday wishes–can you hear us singing…off key, but with genuine enthusiasm!–and people who need and love you. You’ve got everything!

  12. Thanks lovely Jaye!

  13. Marylin – LOL! You’re right. I do have everything and potatoes.

    Belated happy BDay, Ms. Julia.
