Am I Weird or What?

About Anthony DiNozzo


Do you know Anthony DiNozzo?

Anthony is the goofy good looking guy on the NCIS series. DiNozzo pops out the name of a movie whenever a situation arises in their work day. It doesn’t matter what the situation or circumstance, DiNozzo has a movie title to relate the situation to.

I thought this was just weird at first. But the more I watched the show, the more I liked this quirk of his. Now I look forward to his “movie title for every occasion”, I find it refreshing. Whenever the show comes on, I anxiously wait to see what situation he is going to compare to which movie. It is really cool.

I didn’t realize why I liked this quirk until I gave it some thought. I like it because I am the same way . . . with music. I often pop out the title of a song when I find myself in certain situations.

Even in the middle of a conversation, I often think of a song title to relate to the topic of the conversation. It also happens a lot while riding in a car. Many things along the ride remind me of a song title. 

I can be doing a routine household chore, and a long forgotten song or tune pops into my head out of nowhere. 

I sometimes refer to myself as “the Anthony DiNozzo” of music.



Is that weird? Am I Weird or What?

Something to think about . . .

The story of the Bull and the Pheasant


A pheasant was standing in a field chatting with a bull.  

"I would love to be able to get to the top of yonder tree', sighed the pheasant, 'but I haven't got the energy'. 

 'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. 'They're packed with nutrients'.  

The pheasant pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. And so on.  

Finally, after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Whereupon he was spotted by a farmer who dashed into the farmhouse, emerged with a shotgun, and shot the pheasant right out of the tree. 

Moral of the story:

Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Release Negativity

 3 Simple Steps to Renew Etc.



Here are 3 Simple Steps to Take to Renew, Revitalize, and Release Negative Thoughts, Behaviors, and Patterns:

First, think about a particularly challenging situation in your life. This could be related to family issues, professional struggles, or even a habit you’d like to change. 

Second, write it down. 

Third, try this exercise to release the negative charge of this issue, struggle or habit: 

Evoke a positive thought that you’ve never had before about the person or the situation. Choose something positive and true about them. For example, let’s say your boss drives you completely crazy! See if you can find one positive quality about him or her. 

Attach a positive emotion to that quality and focus this emotion towards the person or situation. Let’s say you have a difficult relationship with someone in your family.

Think about one positive quality about this person. How does this positive quality make you feel? Send this positive feeling and energy to this family member.


Exhibit a behavior you wish to see in this person. This is your chance to be the role model to a family member, a boss, a friend or even your child.

If you can practice these 3 simple steps, your mindset about the situation or the person will change. This challenge will no longer define your life and your experience with this person or situation will begin to shift. 

What are your thoughts on this topic? Have you ever experienced a negative situation? Have you ever been in contact with a negative person or persons? How did you handle it? Let us know in the comments section. We’d love to have your feedback.

Make Copyright Trademark & Other Symbols

Friday Night Nonsense by ~dellgirl~


Did you know you can easily produce the copyright symbol © using your keyboard? Other symbols you can produce that are not readily available on the keyboard are ® the TradeMark symbol and £ the Pound Sign.

In order to make these symbols you must use the numeric keypad located on the right side of the keyboard. 

The numbers on the top row of your keyboard will NOT work.

First, activate the numeric keypad by pressing the "NUM LOCK" key.

Next enter the sequence of numbers while holding the Alt key down.

You MUST enter the beginning zero along with the other numbers in the sequence.

Below are a few common symbols that are not found on the regular keyboard along with directions to make them using the numeric key pad.

Hold the Alt key down while entering the numbers.

Alt+number = Symbol  
Alt + 0169  = ©

Alt + 0174  = ®

Alt + 0163 = £

Alt + 0191 = ¿

Alt + 0153 =

Alt  + 0174 = ®

Alt + 0162 =¢

Here We Go Again . . .

What am I here after?

Free Confused Mother Cliparts, Download Free Clip Art, Free Clip ...

Fleeting Moments

You're combing your hair, washing your hands, or the dishes, some clothes, etc. when a thought crosses your mind. There's something else - important - you remember you need to do.

However, you have a few more strokes of the comb to go, a bit more silverware in the bottom of the sink, or a shirt or two more to remove from the dryer.

You’re thinking, I'll just finish this then I'll "
do that other important thing."

Your hair is done, or the trash has been taken where it belongs.

Now, I'll go . . . ?!?

…Go What? 


What was it I was going to do? What am I here after?

That fleeting thought from mere moments ago, it's gone.


Geeeeezzee!!!







Go figure.

Have you ever had fleeting moments? When was the last time you had one? What was it about, do you remember? Or not? 

Forget it! Good Night!

Is It Time to Say Goodbye?

~ Blogger's New Interface Might End My Blogging Days


If things don't get better soon using the New Blogger Interface, I will (through no fault of my own) disappear  from BlogLand. 

The story of my blogging demise is extremely convoluted and too long to post it here. Just know, if you look for me and can't find me . . . I couldn't "cut-the-mustard".

I thought I'd let you know in advance in case I go MIA.
