Killing Time

I'm sitting in the speech office trying to kill some time. I figure my ad revenue is at $1 a day this month so far on my articles on one site. That'll mean that I make the $25 minimum payout by the end of the month, I really need to make it before the end of the month. I may promote some that income is something that I use to pay the phone bill. I need it to cover the Internet once again. I'm thinking of putting another blog up dedicated just to articles in a particular niche that I write to...or maybe doing it as a set of series in order to get all of them there.

I know I need to check and see which ones I have copies of and which ones I do not. That way I can keep up everything that I have done. I am thinking of going back to school, actually this will be approximately my fourth attempt at finishing my degree and I have no idea what I want to do.

I have had the majority of the day off and used it to write some of my own stuff. I also took some time to clean around the house a bit and discover that well needs a new control thing. I'm not sure what it's called or if the whole thing should be replaced or not but I'll know soon enough when I go to searching for them.

The recent string of storms and all the attention they brought to past storms made me think that a storm shelter is a high priority. This means that I need to keep supplies easy to grab, things like supplements that Theresa will need, baby wipes, pull-ups, trash bags, a privacy screen and a composting toilet to put in the storm shelter.

The problem is that those shelters are expensive and each one has its own disadvantages. I'm thinking a house with a basement would be nice. That way I could just walk down the stairs but it would have a side door too.

OK I'm done for now. I"m just killing a little time and rambling away helps with that.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
