Colour Me...

a little Grumpy, leanin' towards Belligerent...

my side hurts, my toes are cold and I'm hungry...and I'm too lazy to do anything about the cold toes and dinner...

some times it just feels good to wallow in the mud, doesn't it?

and I know blog entries are more fun with photos but I am not going to take a photo of my toes...especially since a man I was madly in love with a long long long time ago looked down at my feet once night, as we walked along after seeing a friend off on a train, and completely out of the blue said, and I quote: "You have strange toes"*...

that's right...he went there...

we didn't see one another much after that...he did beg, but that is the way the Big Ball of Rejection bounces on your head after talkin' trash about my toes...peanut head...

anyhoo...Miss Becky over at In Every Season tapped me for a little book love...

here is how it goes:

Pass this on to 5 blogging friends.
Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.
Write out the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that...

well, I reached into the basket under my bedside table and I was hoping against hope to grab Winnie-the-Pooh but I grabbed Jan Karon's Out to Canaan instead...

so here goes: okay...that was boring...so I'll get Winnie-the-Pooh which is right by where Out to Canaan was and I could have just as easily grabbed it...

"Having made certain of this, he took the jar back to Piglet, and Piglet looked up from the bottom of His Very Deep Pit and said "Got it?" and Pooh said, "Yes, but it isn't quite a full jar," and he threw it down to Piglet, and Piglet said, "No, it isn't! Is that all you've got left?" and Pooh said, "Yes." Because it was. So Piglet put the jar at the bottom of the Pit, and climbed out, and they went off home together.

"Well, good night, Pooh," said Piglet, when they had got to Pooh's house. "And we meet at six o'clock tomorrow morning by the Pine Trees, and see how many Heffalumps we've got in our Trap"...

...all I have to say is I thought I wrote rambling sentences...and I'll leave the speculation about what Mr. Milne may or may not have been smokin' up to somebody else**...

I'm going to tap anybody else who'd like to play along who'd like...'cause I already broke one of 2 rules anyway...

Take It Easy, ya'll...

**********************************************************
*and he most definitely did not mean "You have the most strangely cute toes"...he meant "strange toes" period. peanut head...

**don't get angry about my little Milne joke...I love Winnie-the-Pooh 'cause he's [sing along] short, fat and proud of that...I even have Tigger socks that I've had for years and years...

What a dork...you can't go to the "strange toe" place..didn't his momma teach him any better. Now you have us all wondering...hmmm how strange are they! Maybe you should have included the photo..I have this vision of big monster toes in my brain now hehehe. Anyway loved the post...and loved your comment on my last post...yeah sure...for a friend....

Oh, Sheila!
I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well.
What a boo-hiney to tell you that your toes are strange! Ugh!
I keep mine covered all the time - much to my husband's chagrin - but I'm not a "foot" person. Eeeew...

I don't think that I'll receive an e-mail from you. Here's why, I think that:
You know that we moved and then our e-mail addy changed. I went into the blogger account and changed all that out (or so I thought!) Then when I tried to log back on .... EEIIYY! It wouldn't let me! State of Panic!
After trying, for what seemed like hours, and finally walking away -- when I came back, I used my old e-mail address and I logged back in!
But that address isn't good anymore? I don't know what to do.

Thank you, anyway, for offering to send me some pictures! I sure did want to see them!!!!

Blessings!
Julie

see you there! said...

Although I read a lot I've somehow resisted the Jan Karon series and now that you found a random sample of Winnie the Pooh more interesting I think I'll go read those instead.

PS did you ever hear the Michael Franks tune called "Popcicle Toes"? One of my favorites.

Hey Shiela,

How are you feeling these days? And how about those toes? You know, Costco sells fuzzy socks to keep the toes warm. Yep, I bought a couple pair last year. My toes are doing just fine now.

Rebecca said...

Yoooo Hooooo....where are you Miz Sheila. I'm missing you something fierce!

Susie Q said...

As another lady who has odd toes...okay, so my whole foot is odd...
But didn't that man know NOT to say anything bad about a lady's feet? Was he raised by wolves? Nah...that is an insult to well bred wolves everywhere. : )

Oooh...Winnie the Pooh. LOVE Winnie but Eeyore is my true love. : )

Love,
Sue

50s Housewife said...

I feel for you. :) My little brother once told me I had "ugly toes" and I'm STILL self conscious about it.

Susie Q said...

I hope you feel better soon...they should see MY toes if they want to see strange!! : )

Loved the book game too...

Love,
Sue

it's all about the journey...
