But with metal.
In the interest of full disclosure, it wasn't an intact weight bench. It was a weight bench in pieces. The piece that I stepped on? Is the piece that hurts. Apparently.
It used to be a functioning weight bench but then one day I was all "Husband! Why lift weights when we could eat cookies!"
The husband was like, "Excellent point! Great ideas like this are exactly why I married you."
So we disassembled the weight bench and two years later it punched me in the face. And the neck. And the collarbone. It was a big piece. I seriously cannot wait until I start to bruise.
I think I'm supposed to be leading up to something...
Or maybe I'm supposed to lick something.
It's all very confusing.
And it's Just Jennifer's fault.
A few nights ago I was on the twatter with the usual band of miscreants (@jenannhall, @coffeeluvinmom, @therobotmommy) when Just Jennifer is like, "I have a great idea for a linky!"
And then someone *cough* @therobotmommy *cough* was all, "Ooh what are we licking?!" Updated...there seems to be some dispute over who instigated the licking. How about we all just agree that if the four of us are left in a room together for too long the world will implode. But first, it will be licked.
And then things went downhill quickly. And Just Jennifer was like, "No no no, not LICK. LINKY. As in a blog LINKY."
And we were all, "Ohhh. A linky! Why didn't you say so?"
And then she came through The Twatter and punched us all in face.
So, her linky is I'll Show You Mine if You Show Me Yours.
I know what you're thinking, leave it to Just Jennifer to come up with a dirty linky.
But don't worry, that's not what she means. We're not supposed to show anything. We're just supposed to lick things. Wait...what?
OMG you guys I feel nauseous and my head hurts and I really want to go to sleep.
Don't worry. It's probably just the concussion.
The purpose of this linky is to show you the behind-the-scenes-look at blogging. My blogging, to be more specific. The who's, what's, where's, and WOWS of my blogging magic.
Before we get started you'll want to suit up in full body armor. You never know when a knife might come flying or a weight bench might sneak up behind you and karate chop you in the kidney.
Suited up? Great. Let's go.
This photo contains almost all of my necessary blogging equipment:
Laptop: One day I will be able to think the words and they will magically appear on the internets. But for now, this is where the magic happens. Take a look at that website on the screen! For the Love of Writing. Wow. I bet the person who writes that blog is super awesome.
Mask: The mask is very important for dealing with the dreaded writer's block. I put it on and stare out the window. Most of my blogging is done at my kitchen table which is in front of a bay window, or maybe it's just a window. Either way, it overlooks the street. It's super fun when people walk by, look in my window and see a crazy person in a mask staring back at them. It was especially awesome during the homestretch of NaNoWriMo when I wore the mask and a Santa hat.
Wine: I don't think much explanation is necessary. Wine is an essential ingredient in composing a perfectly deranged blog post.
Knives: Because you never know when a home invasion will happen. Or when "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" by Martina McBride is going to come on the On Demand Country Station. For the record, a home invasion is preferable.
Cookies: In case you're wondering, yes those are the most amazing cookies on the planet. Made by yours truly. Also, there were two plates of cookies when I started this post.
Bacon: I know what you're thinking. I ate it all before I could take a picture.
Sometimes I blog in the morning...if I've been awake all night. In which case I drink coffee. Spiked with wine.
They taste terrible together.
Candle: day or night, there is always a candle burning when I blog.
Knives: Pretty sure we already covered this.
Phone: my phone is supposed to be in this picture (I am constantly checking the twatter when I blog) but I have a concussion so STOP JUDGING ME!
Little White Things: What are those?!
Let's have a closer look...
|Can you find the hidden messages?|
Well folks, that's it. The secrets of my blogging revealed.
Now link up with Just Jennifer and start licking!...or something.
