Blogger Lameness

The weirdest thing happened last week--Blogger stopped working! I couldn't believe it. Wait, you already knew that? Oh. Right.

Yeah, that was very strange and frustrating. But it seems to be up and working again, so hurray. *half-heartedly tosses confetti*

The saddest part is that you all had to miss out on my Friday Five because of it. I know, many tears were shed. I'm very sorry about the loss you all must have suffered. Ha ha. Ha.

So, back to business as usual now.

Let's get a little quotage to start the week, shall we? Here's a fun one:

“Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~ Albert Einstein

I have a pretty active imagination, which can be good or bad, depending on the situation. Being scared of the dark because I am picturing all sorts of horrible things happening=bad imagination. Coming up with a new book idea that sucks me right into an awesome new world of characters=good imagination.

What about you? Where does your imagination take you?

I never thought I had a 'good' imagination. I have to make myself sit down and think through 'what if' questions and let them germinate. On the other hand, I am an excellent hypochondriac.

I love my imagination. When I was younger it used to get me in a lot of trouble - so did lying. However growing up I've learned to embrace my need for imagination and lying and put it to good use! Now I can research for hours on things I never would have found interesting when I was younger. But everything you learn does later come in handy!

I hated when blogger was done. I felt lost and all alone. So glad to be back!

My imagination always takes me to the dark side. Especially at night. I frequently have to start off sleeping with the lights on, lol.

It happens in my writing too. I try to write something more... lighthearted, but it never works. NOT that my writing is dark, but more... there are always twisted reasons for things and sadder backgrounds than I meant to start out with.

Ha! Our imaginations must be friends. Late night creaking can turn into horrrrrible things!!

I guess it's a good thing that I was out of town at the end of last week. I sort of missed the whole blogger being down thing.

My imagination makes my brain run in overdrive. I. Can't. Shut. It. Down!

Damn you Blogger. It just ate my comment. Guess that's what I get for complaining about it. ;)

I have a pretty scary imagination. Good thing none of it comes true.

That was very frustrating for me! My husband was out of town and I had the whole day to blog till I dropped! ...but couldn't!
