Talk About It Tuesday

Welcome to the first installment of Talk About It Tuesday.  This is a new gig coming to you live from Bucks County, PA every Tuesday.  How it works:  In my spare time that really isn’t spare ( but hey, I’m a slacker) I will be finding the most ridiculous stories on the internet and posting them here. Yes.  HERE!

There won’t be many animal videos, because, as I realized tonight while my boyfriend watches kitten videos on YouTube… the exploitation stirs something unnerving inside.

So this week I found out that spiders have detachable penises!  Apparently, amidst the sexual encounter, the male spider begins to panic at the thought of being murdered by his mate and leaves his penis to work while he escapes.  I am sure there are a lot of men out there that wish they came stocked with this feature.

In London news, Menna Pritchard caught a lot of flack.  Apparently, rock climbing with your baby strapped to your back is frowned upon.  Well, yeah!  I think what unnerved people (ok, me) is that the mother had a helmet on, but the baby was sans helmet. Outrageous?  Read the article and share your thoughts.

Why do a lot of people think the police and FBI are a joke?  Maybe because once in a while they screw up in gigantic fashion.  A Massachusetts woman was held at gunpoint for a half hour while her baby screamed in the other room after the Feebs cut through the wrong door.  This after a two-year drug investigation. Two years!  If that isn’t alarming, I don’t know what is.

In Taiwan, a gamer died in a cafe and sat there (dead) for at least nine hours before anyone noticed!  According to the article, this is not the first time a person has died due to excessive gaming.  If you sit on your ass all day and then get up to move around, you could induce a heart attack.  I am using this reason at work for all my wandering the hallways.

Since reading these I will not be sitting on my ass playing Wii anymore.  And the next time I want to go rock climbing with my cat, I surely will have his helmet complete with ear holes ready to go. Hope you enjoyed the first installment of Talk About It Tuesday.

Coming to a Computer Screen Near You!

Happy Sunday Folks!  It is that time of the week again when the ROW80 clan gives the skinny on what’s been going up, down and around town with our Rowiest Goals.

750words.com

I have been kicking arse at 750words.com.   I was using this to write my Zombie story, but then realized when I went back the next day to take the words out, they were all lumped together like mashed potatoes (but not as tasty).  So, I now use the site to free write.  My crazy clown story titled, “Vengeful Noodles”, sprung from free writing on the site.  I think it is a great way to keep writing even if I have nothing to really write.  Does that make sense?

Flash Fiction Friday

My goals have kind of been all over the place, but I came up with some ideas in the mass mania of my week.  I am going to have TWO recurring themes on my blog starting this week.  One will be Flash Fiction Friday, which I am pretty sure is not new, but I have fun doing it.  It will now be a weekly thing on “Life at Full Throttle.”

Talk About It Tuesday

This will also be a new weekly segment here at “Life at Full Throttle.”  I was sitting in work yesterday on my lunch scrolling through an RSS feed I get in my work email and found some of the most ridiculous stories.  I will be sharing links to these loony stories and wanting to know your thoughts. Why would someone marry a corpse?  Uh, cause they’re two donuts short of a dozen!

Goals for this week are as follows:

  • read/comment blogs – I am pretty good at this one
  • continue with 750words.com
  • AA meeting
  • edit NaNoWriMo novel (I have slacked on this – big time)
  • Continue with Zombie story

There you have it, readers. Good luck with your goals!  How are they coming along?  Have you added or removed any goals?  Have any of your goals changed in the process of achieving them?  Click here to post your progress to the linky site!
