Fragmented Freewrites- September 25, 2009

Fragmented Fridays are here again, and I'm still working on a witty and clever intro.


A friend that we've known online for ages was in The Netherlands this week, so we met up and went to The Efteling yesterday. It was a really good day.

I don't want to imply that Martijn is a party pooper because he totally isn't... but he can be a little more straight laced and serious than I am. Usually when I suggest we do nutty silly things he declines! So yesterday I told him I'd push him on the merry-go-round if he climbed on. I was certain he'd say no, but I was wrong!

Martijn on the Horsie

I have some really important tests on Monday. I'd really appreciate good thoughts, crossed fingers, prayers, etc. I'm trying to stay relaxed about it, but I'm pretty nervous about the speaking part. Hopefully I won't completely choke.

Sometimes I want to do really nice things for people who are rude or mean to me. Not to be the better person, just so that they'll feel really bad for being rude. That's probably not very nice is it?

I need to find more opportunities to use the word dastardly in everyday conversation. What words do you think should be used more often?

First off, I love the word dastardly. It's a great word. I think we should bring it back.

How fun to play on the merry go round! I am glad that Martijn gave in and played this time. It looks like he had a lot of fun.

Good luck with the test! Remember, the more phlegm, the better. ;-P

Andrea said...

Good Luck on Monday! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. You will do just fine. :-)

Positive vibes your way! Dastardly, what a great word. Although if I used it I think Maurice (my other half) would cock his head to one side and look at me funny. That would be pretty cute though!

The Efteling! AHHH!!! *screams of joy* Maurice took me there when I came to spend two weeks with him in Holland (pre him immigrating here to the UK) and we had SOOO MUCH FUN! I love it there. We really want to take the kids there one day as a family outing. It's a wonderful place.

Love your idea of doing nice things to mean people. I think I might try that..mauuh ahhh

Wishing you lots and lots and lots of luck for Monday. You'll be great!!

Haha, love that picture of your husband. My fiance always says he wants to take me to the Efteling. I really should go sometime.

Hey, I have an interview on Monday too...So combined prayers for both of us..:)...

Sending you good vibes, positive engergy, and prayers. :-) That picture of Martjin is hilarious. He looks like he's having fun!

I tend to have the same reaction to rude and mean people. I hope it makes them re-think their nastiness but not because I'm taking the higher road. :-)

Dastardly is a good word. Did you know that you can actually call someone a dastard? A sneaky, malicious coward. I like it! I like nefarious too.

Amanda said...

Good luck on your tests! That merry-go-round looks like lots of fun!

Karenmeg said...

Hah, what a great picture!

Hope everything goes great with your tests on Monday. Dastardly, awesome word!

Dastardly is a good word. Good luck with your tests on Monday!!

I am thinking good thoughts and saying a prayer for you.

I know what you mean about wanting to be nice to mean people so they feel bad. I think probably everyone has wanted to do that, or has done that, at some point. Killing people with kidness, for whatever reason, is always taking the high road in my book. Whether it is to be a better person or make them feel bad for being mean, either way, you were nice. Ya know!?

Happy FF!

I love the word dastardly. It makes me think of those old cartoons where the villain is is trying the young beauty to the train tracks, with a train quickly approaching. Of course the hero on the white horse always rescues the the lady in distress before the train arrives and saves the day!

I've always like the word sordid. I don't know why, but I do!

I am praying for you! I hope your tests go really well!! Let us know!!

I am much older than you, and I have to tell you that I have never regretted being to kind to anyone. I find that we can actually help others to have a better day just by being nice. The great thing about this is that it also makes me feel better, too!
Here are some verses about "heaping coals of kindness." You might find them interesting!

Oh, I love the photo! What a great guy! Mine is fairly straight-laced, too! I am always surprised and delighted when he gives into some of my silliness!!

Many blessings and good luck with the test!

Crossing vingers and teenjes voor jou, mub! I know how hard you've worked for this...

Good luck with your tests!

Thank you for saying hello at my blog on my SITS day.

Hope yesterday went well for you! I love the pic!

So sorry to take so long getting here!! I hope your test went well, and I'll poke around here to see if you've updated on that.

I like "dreadful."
