Monday Melee #1


and A Blog of Two Witches

According to Roget’s Thesauraus, a melee is anything from a fight or a brawl (or hmm.. a fracas) to a list of odds and ends, a potpourri or assortment of something, a mixture, a variety… even a salad.

So each Monday, I and those participating, will use the following and appropriately assorted prompts, to create a post of interest.

1. The Misanthtropic: Name something (about humanity) you absolutely hate.

Well, I hate to use the word hate ... but anyway, to answer the question ~ I suppose that what I really despise is when people act out of ignorance to hurt other people in order to make their "point."

2. The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent or bogus.

It will probably be exposed in time, but in a three-way election in a very small town in Texas, a completely bogus person was elected mayor. This guy is hiding all kinds of skeletons in his non-profit-organization's closet. Oops! I've said too much.

3. The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.

I'm unhappy that I can't seem to do anything to fix this back pain and it's keeping me from doing a lot of things I really need to be doing. Which also means I'm not doing much of what I want to be doing either.

4. The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.

Ellen is busting her ASS to give her daughter a special graduation party. Even though it's stressful, she's handling it with aplomb. As I will be when it's 6:00 on Friday and we've got 30 minutes before the guests arrive!

5. The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.

I see that I *splurged* and got myself some cotton pj's last week and they make me happy when I look in the mirror.

6. The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.

Peace on earth? A pony? For now, I'll wish that I can wake up later this morning (It's basically still Sunday night, but technically 2AM, so more like Monday morning) and feel rested, awake, alert, and that I have the energy and motivation to tackle either the classroom or the garage. If it's the garage, I have to stay focused and just clear the items from the two tables that we'll be needing on Friday.

I feel for you with the back pain. My hubby has been on disability for 5 years due to a back injury and a 2-level spinal fusion which didn't "fix" his pain.

You can do it too! Just post the same Monday Melee #1 (#2 will be the next time we do it -- next week or whenever).
