Quotes from the World for Monday 06/17/MMXIII

Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. …If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.

Nikki Giovanni
Nikki Giovanni (b. 1943), U.S. poet. Black Women Writers at Work, ch. 5, by Claudia Tate (1983).


Good Morning & Happy Monday,

I started this post at 04.44, isn’t that exciting?

Today is Monday 06/17/V3.4 & it is JIm’s 28th Birthday!!!  Wish him a happy Birthday in the comments or via twitter. Jim G (J_G_II) on Twitter

YESTERDAY was a good day for Team Vernon J. Well it started with work, I had a sneaky suspicious that I would finish reading a book and I did. I had a back-up plan. So that made it great. I then went down to the CWS (that’s College World Series of Baseball) and came home $25 richer. I entered the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin’ Challenge. Eat 12 Blazin’ wings in 6 mins. I redeemed myself from the Crescent Moon Eating Challenge. I beat a guy who competed yesterday.

Then I cam home had some Blue Bunny Premium Ice Cream Red Carpet Red Velvet Cake™, I then went to the grocery store. I was home by seven and made lunch, showered, read, and then went to bed.

I’m now watching The Back Up Plan, cause there is nothing else to do at 05.00. I decided that watching the news in the morning is making me later than I would like it to be. So I’ve made an executive decision. I will try to watch the 17.00 news and 16.00 news. OR I just won’t watch and I think I’ll be fine.

The word of the day is phosphoresce which is to be luminous without sensible heat.

Don’t go OPS.org, you have to go to www.OPS.org. I don’t know why people make things SO difficult. The Board of Education Meeting is today, I’ll be there. Current Meetings – Omaha Public Schools. It is important that we know what is going on with OPS, as the media and OPS fail to do that.

Well we are nearing the 300 word count, not that I give myself a limit on the number of words/characters that I share with you.




Well that’s it for now.
