M is for Monday, Mom and Monotonous…as in Dull!

By Momma Quirk

What could I have been thinking?? When the Quirk asked if I wanted to guest host, I immediately saw visions of bloggy greatness, much like the Quirk’s dream: I HAD A Dream. After all, wasn’t I responsible for half her quirky genes? And, didn’t the Quirk, her seester and I crack jokes continuously and laugh like loons whenever we got together?? And, didn’t I think of a hundred quirky subjects to write on when no one had asked me to??? Where are the ideas now? Where is the humor?? Where are the five blogs I’m supposed to hand in for my homework???

It’s not like the bar was set low to ease me into the blog world. The Quirk’s 5/13/08 entry lists the requirements: "… funny, and thoughtful, and poignant, and everything a good blog entry should be." Sheesh! I haven’t done any serious writing for YEARS! I’ll be lucky to put one word in front of the other! And, if the Quirk’s requirements weren’t enough, she follows it with the Intro from Hell: "…the best possible hands I could think of…funny and thoughtful and smart and quirky…and Mother knows best…" That was so sweet I could have cried but, Oh, my goodness, how do I ever live up to that? Obviously, I can’t so I’ll just do the best I can and hope all her faithful readers will come back after this week!

The agenda for this week includes:
Ten on Tuesday (or Ten Ultimate Quirky Times in the Quirk’s Life)
Wonderful Wednesday (or When I Get to Set the Record Straight)
Thankful It’s Thursday (or Let Me Share My Love of Landscaping)
And Freaky Friday (or Momma Quirk’s Pet Peeves).

If none of that floats your boat, remember what the Quirk said, "Ya'll be nice to Mom while I'm gone." And come back next week for the real quirky thing!
