Fragmented Freewrites- October 9, 2009

Time for Fragments!

My mom called me this week and left a message saying "I'm in Amsterdam and was just thinking of you..." Too bad she meant Amsterdam, New York. I'd have been on a train to the airport so fast!

My in-laws have chickens so sometimes we get yummy fresh eggs from them.

Godzilla Chicken Eggs!

I think one of the chickens is a cross between a chicken and an ostrich. Check out the size of those two eggs on the left! The funniest part is the egg in the middle is NOT small either. These things are massive.

When we got our new bikes several people asked me if I'd given it a name. I hadn't, but now I'm going to call it Bucky. I totally biffed it, so I'm going to blame the bike and say it bucked me off, rather than taking the blame for turning the corner too sharply. I tore a giant hole in my pants, skinned my knee, had gravel embedded in my hands, got stabbed in the chest with my handlebars and landed quite heavily on my shoulder. I should live but I'm probably going to be in agony uncomfortable the next few days. The score currently stands Bucky-1, Me-0. The worst part is I wasn't even trying to do anything cool like escape a mob of angry ninjas.

I always get thrown off when I hear "God Save the Queen" because it's the exact tune of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." Then I get annoyed that they're singing the wrong words, even though "God Save the Queen/King" was set to that melody way before. It's not logical, but it's how it is.

I need to stop reading the news, I'm just better off not knowing.

I'm thinking of doing some sort of "Ask me anything" post. Should I do it??

Friday Fragments? is the Chronicles of My Ordinary and Awesome Life, Family, and Thoughts. is the Mostly Wordless Wednesday headquarters as well as the home to several original awards and memes.

Yes, do it! Why not?

OMG, those eggs are HUGE! I'm so jealous, I would love a fresh egg-supplier.

Sorry you got hurt by Bucky! :(

For some reason, when I read your ostrich comment and saw the pics of the eggs, I laughed my butt off. Hilarity! Also, someday I want to have chickens.

Ask me anything sounds fun!

ElleBee said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm with you, I think those chickens have ostrich relatives! :)

Kori said...

See, you totally could have lied and said you WERE escaping from angry ninjas and we would all be like,"Wow, how cool is THAT?"

Those eggs look gorgeous; what yummy creation are you going to share with us using them?

Sorry to hear you took a digger on Bucky! Hope your injury's heal up quick. The ninja story would have been a good one....will just pretend that's what happened! Good thing you were fast and escaped them but crashed trying ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today :)

Whoa...those eggs are amazing! Yummmmm.

Love "Bucky" for a bike name, and I'm pretty sure it would suit my bike, should I have one. :o)

Hi there,
thanks for popping by my blog.
wow..those are big eggs indeed.
and..ya..i never quite understood why both the songs have the same tune..thanks for clearing that up. As a Canadian..we used to have to sing God Save the Queen as well as our national anthem..but we dont' do that anymore..

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

You'll have to let us know if there are extra yolks in that ginormous know how some have 2? Maybe that one's triplets or quadruplets! :)

Oh no! Bucky tossed you, eh? I bet there was an invisible mob of ninjas after you - but they thought your over-the-handle-bar moves were too much for them so they retreated. ;)

Happy FF! :)

Unknown Mami said...

I think there were ninjas chasing you, they were just invisible.

Yes do the ask me anything post.

Kris said...

I was looking at the size of those eggs before you ever said anything....WOW!!

MotherhoodFilm said...

Look at the size of those eggs! I really enjoyed looking around your blog! Motherhood, my movie about a mom blogger, is coming out soon. I’d love for you to check out my blog! Hope to see you there soon!

pplfichi said...

Ow! :/

Chef Eureka said...

That is a big ole egg... geeze, it's a mutant chicken is what it is :) Expect green slime to come out!

I was in Amsterdam (the good and fun one) once on a layover.. unfortunately, the airport doesn't take you into town, they leave you in a hotel in the middle of a giant corn field... you'd think they were concerned about their clients making it back to the airport or something....

Just popped from SITS to say Hi! I have a "ASK A SILLY QUESTION!" on a Tuesday, and it is really fun, so try it!
Those eggs are amazing! I recently got six chickens, but I lost one of them. When they very start to lay eggs, sometimes they don't have a yolk, so it's handy if you have a recipe that only needs egg whites!

Emma Louise said...

Those eggs made me giggle!! :)

Tam said...

Huge EGGS!

Sorry about your loss to bucky. Liked your Friday Fragments!

Mrs4444 said...

Farm fresh eggs are awesome. Wow-those are HUGE.

I never know what to ask when people have question posts, but everyone else seems to enjoy them, so I say, "Go for it."

So sorry to hear you took a tumble on your bike! I'm glad you weren't seriously injured. Are you feeling any better?

Sara Elizabeth Bonds said...

Those have got to be the biggest eggs I have ever seen. Poor chicken!

oranjeflamingo said...

Just when I think about getting on a bike again finally, I read stories like yours (I'm pretty sure there must have been ninjas). I hope you heal soon and that Bucky no longer lives up to the name!

Wizardress said...

You definitely should do the ask anything entry :) Then remind me so I can ask you anything heehee.

Sounds like you'd better get a saddle for Bucky. I'm glad you are ok for the most part though, and hopefully he'll be kinder to you in the future.


brainella said...

Either that is one big chicken or that chicken is in a LOT of pain. :-)

Good bike name.
