Share Your World- May 2019

I haven’t been keeping up with blogging as much as I’d like lately. Part of the reason is I got some work last week and had very little internet access. The other reason is that it takes so much time to do a post justice (especially since they came out with the new WordPress style) and I just haven’t been able to get motivated.

I’ve been home for a few days now. My last job was cut from 3 weeks down to just one week. I’ve been able to rest up and now have the time to check into the blogging world again. First up in my reader was this post from Melanie and her sparksfromacombustiblemind blog.

Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge? I would rather know for sure. I figure that way I can at least try to do something about the situation. Then again, there are so many things I just can’t do anything about. All the things going on in this country (and the world) make me sick! If I think about it, it makes me miserable. Sad, frustrated, angry, depressed, mean and just miserable. Sometimes I think it would be better to live in ignorance. I’m sure I would be much happier to not know all the things I do know. 😦

What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh? Watching a funny movie, like something from the 3 Stooges or the Marx Brothers or Mel Brooks.

Here’s a screen shot of what gave me the last big belly laugh…

“Boat hack #117 – Form two Little Debbie brownies into a shit shape. Wipe toilet paper across it so the crime scene looks legit. Strategically place in head and sit back and watch your crew blame each other and argue over who cleans it up. Film and post if possible”

I saw that yesterday in a Facebook page I follow- Offshore Supply Boats & Crew Boats. Maybe you have to have some experience working offshore in the Gulf of Mexico to get it, but I cracked up laughing. 🙂

Maybe I’m just weird, and still have a juvenile sense of humor, but I really enjoy a good shit-fart-sex joke. The more stupid and disgusting, the better. 😉

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay? Great question! I am a “Darwinist”, but have thought about stuff like this many times. One of the reasons I’m a “Darwinist” and not a follower of the Bible. If that story is true, he must’ve had some woodpeckers in there- all kinds of woodpeckers. Some of those guys can really do a lot of damage. I imagine they would’ve put a real hurtin’ on that old ark by the time the floods settled down. Maybe Noah fashioned a special metal lined cabin for them all?

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters? Another good question! Why is Billie short for Bill (or William)?

What happened in your world this past week that made you feel thankful, joyful or grateful? I am so thankful I got even that short week’s worth of work! It gives me at least a couple of weeks breathing time before I start really worrying about paying the bills again!

  1. Those bills can be so stressful and cause such high anxiety (bada BING ((obscure reference to Mel Brooks))… hee hee. Thanks Jill for Sharing Your World!! That poop on the toilet seat is PRICELESS…if we ever have another family reunion, I may have to try that. I have one sibling that gets upset if there’s water on the floor from someone taking a shower..>I can’t imagine what they’d do if they found that ‘present’ on the toilet seat…

    • Agreed Melanie. It’s a proven fact that people make bad decisions under financial stress. I wish I could just get it all out of my mind and stop worrying about it, but I guess it’s part of my make up. I’m a worrier.
      Let me know how it goes with the toilet seat joke. 😉
      Another one we used to do was to put ketchup packets with a little tear opening just under the toilet seat, so when someone sat down on it, they’d get it all over the back of their knees. Freaked some people out.

  2. wonderful that you keep on posting
    as i understand it takes time & effort.
    i’ve a distant memory of basic training
    and poop-shaped fudge being used
    to similar effect.
    may your day be restful and happy 🙂

    • thanks,
      yeah, I imagine basic training might be a lot like working at sea. I guess that’s why so many of the maritime academies act like military academies with all the uniforms, marching, etc.
