Day 12: Screenshot your desktop

Aha! So the post in its pre-post stage captured in a post.

 

This is the admin page and oh look – I’ve got a like! (Since I check my account about once a day I can usually expect a little notification, of course this habit also decreases my frequency of disappointment of my blog floating around in WordPress limbo all alone and lost…)

The start bar is typical Windows 10 with browsers: Microsoft Edge (a browser that looks super clean but I haven’t had the courage to try yet.), Mozilla Firefox (a favourite that suddenly kept on malfunctioning for online media a few weeks ago), and Google Chrome (which is my preferred browser now). I also have the apps OneNote and Calendar which sync up to my phone and Word, Skype, Store, and Computer folder(? honestly I don’t know what’s that called) just for one click convenience.

I really like tabs. From left to right: some reading I was doing on mental health – specifically motivation for school, the email of a GoDaddy website I am learning to manage, Jackrabbit management software which I’m clicking randomly to fix glitches, Pinterest because you find awesome pictures and links, Sporcle which has fun and educational quizzes – this one being on things older than sliced bread, Facebook because I’m a social butterfly, Youtube playing Nat King Cole on Youtube because it’s never too early for Christmas songs and because I’m musically classy, a link to watching Suits because I’m in an interrupted marathon for a smart, funny, dramatic (maybe too much on the love problems) tv show, and the result of looking up “taco curve” on Wolfram Alpha because a computational knowledge engine knows how to describe a delicious Mexican dish in an equation.

As browser extensions I have AdBlock because I don’t like being told to spend money everywhere I look and Noisli because it generates calming, nature and atmospheric noises for those moment when you need to focus or relax.

That’s it folks.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives. -Anonymous

You can never have enough humour these days…

Bolong (NaPoWriMo #2)

The tofu man’s cart rattles along dimly lit roads,
Calling out to those in want of warm ginger soup.
He clatters a bell piercing through the song of crickets and toads.
In the shadows, a young lady emerges around the loop.
She smiles as he ladles a generous serving into a bowl,
And hands cupping the dish, lets the steam rise up into her face.
It might rain; there is a sound of plopping liquid as she gives it a taste.
Dropping a coin in his palm she hurries away, and to his horror he sees his soup trailing behind,
Through her back from a big gaping hole.

—————————————-
For a poem based on exotic mythology, I was inspired by a trickster spirit my mother told me about, in the form of a woman with a hole in her back. Bolong means hole in Indonesian, and I suppose it would be a fun (but scary for the victim obviously) prank to play on anything requiring the digestive passageway. I am behind on 30 poems for NaPoWriMo with 10 left to go, but congratulations to everyone who completed the challenge today! I will continue writing the prompts – there is lots of inspiration just not enough time – and hopefully this is not a total faux-pas.

Thanks for reading,

An Easter Basket of Lies (NaPoWriMo #16)

It is the cause of the biggest shopping spree of the year in our family.

We buy lots of food, especially chocolate in the shapes of bunnies and other cute animals.

We have a long standing ritual of dying a rainbow of eggs in our family.

We put them in a basket in the backyard so the animals can have a spring treat.

With hundreds, almost thousands, of chocolate eggs and chick marshmallows, we set up the ultimate egg hunt for our family.

There’s so many, often we find more candy, forgotten ones, the winners of hide and seek from last year.

There’s a giant party – we exchange gifts and have a feast – it’s like a second Christmas in our family.

And we put on brand new fancy clothes for a street parade because why not, everyone knows it’s a holiday.

But we don’t go to church.

Because we don’t really celebrate Easter in our family.

How can a man rise from the dead?

—————————————-

From the NaPoWriMo website: “write a ten-line poem in which each line is a lie. Your lies could be silly, complicated, tricky, or obvious.”

So this is all a lie. Our family loves Easter, it is a special time for reflection and celebration. But we do not follow what is “traditional” to do around this time – not all of that stuff that I’m sorry to say has commercialized this holiday. But anyway, in spite of the little harsh ending of the poem, I wish everyone a very happy Easter and that you enjoy this time with everyone you love.

Age (NaPoWriMo #12)

Source : bambilulu.tumblr.com/post/24974465359

Age is a legendary director of awful movies.
It is a singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumental performer.
Age is the bold and the bashful.
It is community and children’s health.

Age delights in a wide range of beer.
Age is interested in the mundane and overlooked.
Yet itself is a wonderful, secret, and magic combination.

It is a naturally occurring block fundamental to the crafting of many blocks in the game.

In a small but impressive microcosm of the universe, age is creativity –
Alive, flourishing.
It offers more than 1000 possibilities.

—————————————-
I am the co-author of this poem along with Google, where these phrases were found from searching the term “wood.” the task was to replace a concrete thing with an intangible idea, in this case, age. Surprisingly, there are many business names with this word, offering lots of unchanged inspiration from page 1-5 of the search results. Individually it seems a bit odd, but together I think it works!

Lovely Alarm (NaPoWriMo #7)

image

Tick, Tock.
Goes any ordinary clock,
But mine is special,
It’s quiet.

Its face glows blue,
A calming hue,
When I cannot see
At night.

Its design is foldable,
Small and holdable,
A hardy companion
Overseas.

No thing is as loyal
To its daily toil,
So I never miss morning sun
Through the trees.

Scratches in clumps
From morning grumps
Accidentally knocking it down
To the floor.

With this it puts up
And several “shut ups”
So what if it doesn’t
Tick tock.

It is my best little alarm clock.

————————————–
I really do love my alarm clock. Except in the mornings. I have been sick and am consequently more motivated to write poetry than homework. Oh dear. I wish creative writing was as big a part of English as essay writing, and not just in Writer’s Craft which I will always regret not being able to take.
