Woo-hoo! Power to the People!

Your Power Level is: 73%

Your Power Level is: 73%

You're a very powerful person, and you know that all of your power comes from within. Keep on doing what you're doing, and you'll reach your goals.
How Powerful Are You?
Edited to fix the LINK.
Random bullets for Monday:
  • Successfully avoided temptation to smack a curly-headed Napoleon up-side the head today. So far.
  • BBQ Chicken for lunch. Left over from actual homecooked meal last night. UMmm!
  • My office plants seem to have the Black Death. Sadness.
  • I'm really tired.
  • Partially because I went to bed at 9:30 last night (exhausted) and woke up at 1:30 this morning (infuriating). The adrenaline high should last me until about 6:00 p.m.
  • This week I have learned that people who have a large portion of the right lobe of their brain removed are still fully capable of making damn funny jokes. They are no so capable of comprehending that their daughter-in-law is joking. Heh.
  • Also, when you have mostly your left half of your brain intact, you get real peeved by random word lists presented by therapists. Randomness is not tolerated. Logical progression is. It's sort of fascinating.
  • I just noticed my Wonder Woman clock has never made it into Daylight Savings Time. Oh, well. Rock on in your own little time warp, WW clock!
  • I have Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 action figures hanging on my office wall. They make me happy!
  • My Edward Gorey Neglected Murderesses Notecards came in the mail. That also makes me happy!
  • I know that there is a difference between magic and miracles. I don't think God is a big ol' David Copperfield up in the sky, picking and choosing who to benefit with bits of devine prestidigitation. 'Expect A Miracle' if you must. But recognize the miracles when you see them and don't hold your breath waiting for magic.
  • Remember that tin of Shinola you found at that garage sale that time, Janet? Hee hee. I wish I had that.
  • What is your greatest garage sale purchase? Can you beat my parents? They bought their cemetery plots at a garage sale.

Scratching head and frowning slightly Huh. Cemetery plots at a garage sale... Huh...

(Oh no - and I can't find out how powerful I am cause the link won't work!)

How did they manage that?

No one will be able to top your coffin.

A perfectly cromulent list!

Janet said...

No, I don't remember the tin of Shineola but I bet I knew what it wasn't! I've heard of people who don't know the difference but I'm sure I do. You know I had a chance at those cemetary lots and turned them down ,if they are the same ones he was selling in one of his famous garage sales. I must have had some very unusual thing I have bought in a garage sale, maybe it was the Shineola. I do remember a small pottery pitcher I bought for .25 and sold that day for $75.00 does that count?

Patti said...

Hah! I'm 74% is it I could beat you? I don't feel very powerful right now.

SpookyRach said...

Way to go Patti! You are just underground powerful.

Love that word, Reverendmother.

peripateticpolarbear said...

cemetary plots? for real?

SpookyRach said...

For real! The owner was moving away or something and didn't want to be buried here any more. So, they added the deeds to the plots to the garage sale.

jonboy said...

Hah! 82 percent powerful. I always knew I could beat you up.

SpookyRach said...

snort! Crochety-ness is not a superpower. You are just a poser!

Miss Kitty said...

Sadly, I cannot beat the cemetary plot purchase! That is HILARIOUS! The best thing I got at a garage/yard sale was a used loveseat for $20.

Captainwow said...

a cemetary plot!
I cannot beat that but feel the need to inject that my cemetary plot has been bought and sold already. And not by me. STWANGE. (long story)

and about the david copperfield thing I was just thinking about that today while filling ice trays.
God is not a magic genie.
