I was abducted by aliens. What’s your excuse?

To thine own clone be true

September 14, 2009

There are times I wish I had a clone of myself. (Forget the inconvenient fact that it would have to be grown from a baby to an adult and would not be able to act for me for 20 years or so – let’s pretend I could have one that would instantly be a duplicate of me.) It would be so nice to have the clone do the things that I don’t have time to do or don’t want to do.

Of course, if I don’t want to do something, my clone, being a duplicate of me, wouldn’t want to do it either. So we would have two of us not doing the thing that needs to be done.

And since we would both like the same things, we might wind up competing against one another for stuff. Or for people – what if my best friend hung out with my clone more than with me? Or mom liked my clone best?

Worst of all, what if we started arguing about which of us was the real me? I mean, I would know that I was, but my clone would probably really believe that she was the original. And then there’s the whole issue of using a clone for spare parts. What if it was the clone that needed an organ from me?

*sigh* I guess it would just be too complicated after all. And – oh dear – I just had another thought. What if I didn’t like my clone? Now that’s a scary thought.

If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves

“If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” This quotation from Thomas Edison is a nice reminder that we can do more than we think we can. I have put this quotation on framed tiles, t-shirts and other items at my shop at CafePress.

I have more inspirational quotations available as well.

Question of the day 4

September 11, 2009

Things that make you go “awwwww”…

I can’t help it, I’m a sucker for the cute. Show me a picture of a baby tiger or a koala bear, and I can’t help myself, that “awwwww” just emits itself.

Animals seems to be my weak spot. For others it is babies and children. Sappy, romantic lines or scenes do it for some. Photos, moments from movies, memories from our lives, those “awwwww”s are just all over the place.

What makes you go “awwwww”?

In case of emergency, don’t expect me to be of any help

September 11, 2009


I always have the best intentions, I really do, but I’m just not good in emergencies. So please don’t have an emergency when I’m around. Thank you.

If you relate to this sentiment, I have put it on t-shirts and other stuff at my shop at CafePress.

Let the dust bunnies prevail

September 10, 2009

I am not a good housekeeper. I have no problem admitting it. I would rather spend my time creating designs and doing other stuff than cleaning a house that only starts getting dirty again the minute I am finished. In spite of this I do manage to keep up with the basics of dusting and sweeping and vacuuming and such. But the nooks and crannies of my home do not bear inspection. I confess that in those dark places even the dust has dust on it, and the cat fur is no doubt present in enough quantity to make a whole ‘nother cat or two. And as far as spider webs are concerned, I have simply given up and let the spiders live in peace.

One more confession; I have let an army of dust bunnies breed to deal with that pesky monster under the bed. And I haven’t seen him for years now, so it must be working.
