flinging fragments

Our lawn is just a fragment of what it was before the drought sucked its moisture dry. Good thing my brain fragments still needs mowing. Here’s this week’s clippings. See Mrs. 4444’s blog for a harvest of fragments.

Mommy's Idea

Do you realize this year many will design their Christmas on Pinterest? I might start decorating now. What do you want from Pinterest this year? May I be the first to wish you a great Pinterest Christmas.

- Warning fart factoid coming up after this -

A best seller has me worried. I’m hoping that the “Fifty Shades of Grey” popularity drops off before I take my next flight. Imagine the awkwardness of sitting between two women reading that on the plane.


- I warned you -  

(found on lifeslittlemysteries.com) The answer may stink, but everything we eat or drink gives us gas. In fact, it's normal to fart up to half a gallon (1.9 liters), or about 15 to 20 toots worth of gas each day. Particularly fragrant flatulence, however, comes from colonies of bacteria shacked up inside our lower intestinal tract. In the process of converting our meals into useful nutrients, these food-munching microbes produce a smelly by-product of hydrogen sulfide gas—the same stench that emanates from rotten eggs.

- cool I got you reading the small print -

Now if you consider that previous fragment as less than blog worthy, you will be thankful I skipped writing about the following headline story from the same website. 
Octopus Hitches Ride on Dolphin's Genitals
- now go back to the top and start over (just kidding) -

Penguins - When you are short on ideas, think penguins. That’s what google did with streetview. Penguins need privacy.

- if you take the first letter from all these dividers -

Next time a stranger approaches you and says “you look familiar do I know you for somewhere?”, answer, “Yes, remember I loaned you $20 about 8 months ago.” 

- you didn’t think I would give the next step for those letters -

Typically “with insight” is much better than “within sight”.

You are so full of beans.

Wayne said...

I really liked the small print and fun factoids of all types are always appreciated.

Kathy said...

Omg you crack me up....what the hell is in your coffee...or do you write these post after 5 pm and it's too many cocktails for you...endless chuckles!

CiCi W said...

You are the first! Merry Pinterest Christmas back atcha.


Was that a happy dolphin or a sad and sorry one?


I so like the come back to the stranger. I may get some extra money that way.

Imagine the awkwardness on the plane if YOU were the one reading 50 shades of grey

lisleman said...

yeah - I feel awkward just walking past a display of them.

lisleman said...

From the story it appears the dolphin knocked the octopus off so I would guess - agitated one.
Wish you well with the $20 but don't ask me.
thanks

lisleman said...

No cocktails lately. My FF post is a collection of thoughts over the week. Why do I have these thoughts? I don't know but I heard one of my ancestors had a witch's curse placed on him. Who knows what I might have been if not for that witch.
thanks

lisleman said...

yeah - you just wait until you get old and don't even know there is small print there. thanks

lisleman said...

I can't be full of beans because I don't know Jack.

lisleman said...

happy fragments to you.
thanks

Mrs4444 said...

I honestly think that's your best intro yet, but I really liked all of your fragments this week.


I didn't "get" this one, though: if you take the first letter from all these dividers.


Good to know I'm healthy. Too bad some of us are healthier than others ;)

This is the new Disqus, right? No offense, but it just seems cluttery to me--So many unnecessarily features. I still might go with it, though.

CaliforniaGirl500 said...

Thanks for the flatulence info; people think they "know" me all the time so that's a great comeback as I'm always stuck for one (I usually think they might be a potential client I've forgotten); the octopus probably had the ride of his life and the dolphin the time of his life. My GF worked with dolphins for 12 yrs and she always says they like to do 3 things and 3 things only: EAT, FUCK, PLAY.

Mrs4444 said...

I wish there was a "Like" button in here for comments. Yours made me LOL. Thanks.

lisleman said...

The "like" button is the up ^ and then you have the v for dislike. It doesn't make much of a difference on a blog like this with maybe a dozen comments. But if you have hundreds of comments it pushes the "good" ones up.

lisleman said...

Nothing to get - trick question? I just thought a reader or two might looking for something in the dividers. Yes this is the new DISQUS and one feature I didn't know I would like until I started using it is the "my disqus" which shows up after you login. It should up on any and all disqus using blogs. So I can be on Unknown Mami and get a notification that you replied to a comment on my blog.

Mrs4444 said...

Interesting...Thanks.

Mrs4444 said...

That's pretty cool! (the notification). Your dividers amused me this week :)

lisleman said...

Every so often I try words instead of pictures or graphics

Laurie Matherne said...

There's a certain person in my family who is well-known for her ability to produce enormous amounts of flatulence. I am the exact opposite. She has the capacity to make up the average for the two of us. (Never travel in closed or small areas with her; I have learned this the hard way)

CaliforniaGirl500 said...

THANKS! What a nice reply. I have two blogs and I'd love you to check them out if you have time.

www.emptynestevolution.blogspot.com


I'll do the same. I have seen your comments on this blog many times.

xo

Mrs4444 said...

Maybe some day....I've neglected my regular readers for too long to read yours, instead, but I hope to stop by your place eventually :)

lisleman said...

A gas bag ? My king-of-the-road uncle that I have posted about in the past has the ability to create vomit inducing smells.
Family reunion memories of this?

unknownmami said...

Flatulence is big in my house. The girls want to celebrate each and every one of their farts with applause.

lisleman said...

The problem with applause in this situation is the bow will generate an encore which could start a dangerous cycle resulting in high levels of flammable gas. Not all actions merit an applause but they could be voted on.
thanks

Pam said...

I have been avoiding the ocean for years. Might have to rethink that one. So, someone who passes gas double that number is doubly healthy? In that case, the husband is going to outlive me for sure.

lisleman said...

rethink the ocean because of the octopus or penguin? Gas at the beach typically is not too bad if there is a nice breeze and loud waves crashing.
thanks

Me and the Mexican said...

Hmmm.... had no idea I'd learn so much about "gas" today. Interesting info! I guess I need to start a x-mas gift board on Pinterest. Hadn't thought of it until you mentioned it. Oh, and the thought of you stuck between 2 women reading Fifty Shades made me giggle! (If this does ever happen, just remember if you see them start biting their lip, this means you need to get a flight attendants attention and demand a new seat! They've def. got their eye on ya!)

lisleman said...

biting their lip - that's getting a little intense. That would be great time for air turbulence. thanks

Agnes Pages said...

Pinterest... I've never been on their site, is it good? I am pretty old fashioned when it comes to social networks.

lisleman said...

Social networks change quickly so everyone becomes "old fashioned" if they don't constantly watch the changes happening all around.
I didn't think pinterest would be of interest to me at first glance. Much of it is the virtual households department which I could care less about. What I found that was worth the free membership was the many funny sayings and pictures. They promote using FB when signing up but I just use my email address and don't link my stuff to FB.
