Prompt for the Day: “Ballerina Fireman Astronaut Movie Star”



The prompt for today is “Ballerina Fireman Astronaut Movie Star“.   Then they asked a couple of questions: “When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected?”

The questions are similar to a series of questions I was asked during a college entrance interview.  You forgot to ask what type of books I enjoyed reading. My dream job was always to become an Astronaut.  Found out my first semester in college, I was too short to become one.  Ended up becoming a network engineer.  Had to retire back in 2004, due to my multiple sclerosis leaving me wheelchair bound.  (Hard to track down wiring issues from a wheelchair!)

Have always enjoyed creating word craft, like writing essays.  Won several awards for my essays and reports in high school.  Turned my reports into speeches and exceeded at presenting speeches both locally, county wide, and even received a first place ranking at state level!

Fire tends to scare me too much to ever consider becoming a fireman.  Have been uncoordnated my whole life, so never even considered becoming a ballerina.  Did want to become an ice skater after watching the movie “The Cutting Edge” with friends in college.

Please help fight my disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri.  Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible.  I remember when I first started on it , the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500.  There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days!  Biogen (manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.  So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.  To contribute to it click, on the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/zfabhdes

Post for the Day: “Bloggers, Unplugged”

The evil people at the Daily Post division of Word Press wanted to slap me in the face with the fact I can’t write without the use of my laptop, because my handwriting has now been rendered illegible by the disease, multiple sclerosis which I have been suffering from since I was little! By choosing “Bloggers, Unplugged” for our daily prompt.  They added the following words to help ignite our fiery writing furnaces “Sometimes, we all need a break from these little glowing boxes. How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?”

There is absolutely no way I could pursue my art without the aid of some type of  computer to assist me.  The only people who can interpret my handwriting now is my husband and my mother.  I know it is time to turn the computer off when my vision starts to get blurry.  Am a morning person, so by around 3 PM I am worn out for the day.

All the people I deal with on a regular basis know this fact.  They do not expect anything productive coming from me after that time.  After I am done with the machine for the day, I unplug it and shut it down.  (Order of the process matters, since I am cursed using a Windows operating system!)

Prompt for the Day: “Humble Pie”

The word smiths in the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with the prompt for today of “Humble Pie“.  They gave us one single added direction to our writings for the day “Tell us about a time you found out after the fact that you’d been mistaken and you had to eat a serving of humble pie.”

My biggest serving recently had to do with informing my uncle (who happens to be a minister with the United Church of Christ) that the state of Indiana didn’t allow same sex marriages to be accepted as a legal marriage.  Thought I had heard it on the morning news.  Turned out I had gotten the state incorrect.   The state on the news was Iowa.  (It started with an “i” at least!)  He was planning a trip there anyway, so I made sure to let him know about the error before he left.

When I left home for college out of state at the wise old age of 17, tried to join the church in my new place of residence.  Was told they were not interested in accepting college students in their church.  Had been confirmed in my hometown UCC after my eighth grade year in school.  Was forced to join even though I had asked the minister at the time not to make me join.  I believed in God, just not the way that church practiced their faith.  They were only after the congregation’s money, not actually helping other people.  So I did not pursue returning to the UCC again.  One of my friends invited me to join her church’s choir with her.  The Methodist church not only welcomed college students, they gave them a place to join in their religion!  They invited me to sing in their choir, play on the bell choir, even had me play duets with my friend on our clarinets during the offertory!

Down the road drug a boy I was dating to choir practice with me.  One Sunday, I officially switched to the Methodist church.  Since I had already been through confirmation, all I needed was a sponsor.  Found several without any problems.  The guy I brought to church with me was a Catholic, so he had to attend confirmation classes.  Eventually he was confirmed one Sunday morning!   Turned out to be a good thing, since we ended up getting married in that church the day after I graduated from college.

Prompt for the Day: “The Luckiest People”

The extroverts from the Daily Post division of Word Press came up with the following prompt to fuel our writing engines for the day it is “The Luckiest People“.  Then they asked a question followed by an instruction – “Who was the first person you encountered today? Write about him or her.”

The first person I encountered was my husband sleeping next to me, then our cat peered over the edge of my side of the bed.  My husband wanted to go on sleeping, since he had worked am extra long shift at his employer’s site.  The cat just wanted me to open the blinds on the windows so he could sun himself.  Let my spouse sleep a little more and got up and started my normal morning routines that included getting breakfast out of the refrigerator and taking my daily medicines.  Once those were all down, made myself a peanut butter sandwich for lunch, then fed the cat (he was not out of food, anyway).  Went back into the bedroom and asked my spouse to wake up one more time.

Laid out my clothes for my morning shower, then asked my husband to get up, again!  Returned to the front room and drank my breakfast shake.  Eventually, my husband came out and went into the bathroom.  He started his morning coffee, and took out the cat’s litter.  Then went downstairs to use his bathroom.  By the time he came back upstairs, the coffee completed perking.  With his fresh cup of coffee in hand, he joined me in the front room.  So the day had officially began!

Optic Neuritis!

Optic neuritis is one of the most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis.  I hate it!  The only worse multiple sclerosis symptom is the feeling of vertigo.  Vertigo makes you want to throw up because you feel like you are on the wave riddled sea during a horrible storm.  If I do not take motion sickness medicine, start vomiting uncontrollably from vertigo.  With optic neuritis, I simply have to cover the affected eye with a patch and take three ibuprofen pills every four hours.

Sleep also helps rest my eyes, so I take a lot of naps while suffering from the optics.  It beats getting the double vision.  Used to have that happen all the time when I was still able to drive.  Would try to avoid the vehicle that my eyes told me was the closest to my car.  The amazing fact is that I was never involved in an accident while having double vision!

Prompt for the Day: “I Can’t Stay Mad at You”

Am convinced the people at the Daily Press group of Word Press knows me too well!  They came up with “I can’t stay Mad at You” for the daily prompt.  They asked one solitary question: “Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget?”

Personally…

I tend to hold grudges with the best of them!  Take after my grandpa.  Miss him seriously since the emphysema caused him to pass away.  He would argue with a fence post if it could argue back!

Have an excellent long term memory, just my short term memory seems to be affected by my multiple sclerosis.  Still remember all the people who were mean to me growing up in school, back before I left home to attend college.  Don’t worry, can’t forget!  I’ve tried.

Will never forgive the surgeon who literally got on my nerves during my first surgery to insert a sub pubic catheter in my body.  Woke up while he was cutting into me!  He said he could not give me anything to sedate me anymore.  After three years living with the pain from having my nerves cut, he preformed another surgery to relocate the catheter away from my nerves.  At least this time I slept all the way through the procedure.  First  surgery site still bothers me depending on the weather!

Prompt of the Day – “Seat Guru”

The extroverts at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose “Seat Guru” for today’s writing prompt.  One sentence of instruction, followed by a question:  “You get to plan a dinner party for 4-8 of your favorite writers/artists/musicians/other notable figures, whether dead or alive. Who do you seat next to whom in order to inspire the most fun evening?”

First choice would be Albert Einstein

Face it, the man came up with the theory of relativity!  What an exciting physicist of his age.  Would love to discus physics with the man.  He knows what it is like to survive as an introvert with a mind that works non-stop all the time.  Seat him next to the door, in case he needs to escape from the crowd.

Second, Ray Bradbury

Mr. Bradbury was one of my favorite authors in grade school.  Read every one of his books that the school library contained (considering not many people in the town had ever heard of him, that wasn’t too many).

Phil Collins would be next

Collins has been my favorite musician since junior high school.  Both me and my husband still enjoy many of his works today!  Getting involved with  creating sound tracks for movies definitely was a stroke of genius as far as his career as a composer goes in making an ongoing need for his craft.

Alan Alda is the last

From Alan‘s portrayal of Hawkeye Pierce on the classic television show “MASH“,  his character was the life of the party!  He needs to wear the tuxedo his father (in the show) sent him.  No party exists with out his presence.

Prompt for the Day-“Literate for a Day”

A person associated with the Daily Post portion of Word Press suggested the prompt for the day of “Literate for a Day“.  They made a short statement followed by a question ,”Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?”.

Had a Cat who understood English

Tennyson, my black cat, not only understood what we would say, but he followed suggestions.  Asked him to go wake my husband up one day.  He jumped up on the bed and nudged him with his head.  When that was ignored, the cat got up on top of him.  My husband just rolled over, continuing to snore.  After a few failed tries of climbing on top of the man, the cat judicially stuck him with a single claw and then ran out of reach!  That was one way to wake my husband up, that hadn’t occurred to me.

After that all I had to do when I wanted him to wake up was mention that he either got up, or I’d send the cat in to finish the job!  The animal also was quite good at playing games with me.  Never met a better animal soccer (smaller ball than regulation) goalie in my life.  You couldn’t get a ball past the little runt.  He might have been tiny, but he was incredibly accurate in the use of his legs and claws.

Prompt for the Day: “Non-Regional Diction”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press are trying to make me feel critical of the way I talk!  The prompt for the day that they chose was “Non-Regional Diction“.  They also included the following sentence setting our overall direction-“Write about whatever you’d like, but write using regional slang, your dialect, or in your accent.”

Y’all can laugh all you want…

Have used the expression y’all since I was a child.  Also measure distances by number of fields away.  (You have to ignore the fact that fields are never the same size, but that is how I grew up in southern Illinois).  Grew up playing in the creek, but it was a “Mud creek” tributary running through our long pasture.

Last meal of the day was referred to as supper.  Mid day meal was lunch.   The guys had to have snacks available (cookies, piece of cake, etc.) in the afternoon.  You don’t want to be around a male who wants a snack and cannot find one!

Prompt for the Day: “A Tale of Two Cities”

Think Charles Dickens wrote a book with the title of today’s prompt which is “A Tale of Two Cities“.  The Daily Post group of Word Press also asked us a question-“If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?”

City number One

The first city would have to be the place in which our current home is located.  Saint Paul, Minnesota is where we put the down payment on purchasing an older house.  That was back in 2004.  Have lived here happily since we moved in.  Have gotten a wheelchair ramp installed to let me come and go all by myself in my wheelchair.

There is plenty of public transportation widely available 24 hours a day for the handicapped citizens.  Many libraries, museums, and other cultural places exist here in the city.  Our neighbors are also really easy to get along with.

City Two

Traditionally, the area we live in is referred to as the twin cities.  Minneapolis is the larger of the two cities.  There is way too much violence in Minneapolis for my liking, which is why I didn’t even consider it as a place to live permanently.  They normally have a fight a day, sometimes resulting in a murder or two.

Minneapolis is where I have to go to visit my doctors and get my medicines.  The nursing staff in the Noran Clinic, where I go is excellent!
