Happy Hump Day
My hump day post has to serve as a multi-purpose blog this week.
First, I need to thank everyone for their good wishes on the release of Flights of Fiction on Monday, especially those who ordered a copy. I really appreciate your support.
For those who asked about an e-version, Flights of Fiction will be available in e-format in early May. I don't have an exact date from the publisher but I will certainly make an announcement here as soon as I know.
Next I want to tell you about a very cool new blogfest from the Ninja Captain, Alex Cavanaugh, and friends.
I love one day blogfests (no A to Z challenges for this kid), especially when movies are involved. This one should be lots of fun. Get the details and sign up here.
I also want to mention that I'm going to be off line for the next week. I'm going on a little vacation with some dear friends. I'll be back with you on Friday, April 26. Try to stay out of trouble while I'm gone.
Now for your hump day funnies.
Here are some actual label instructions found on consumer goods.
On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
(but that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)
On a bag of Fritos -- You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(the shoplifter special?)
On a bar of Dial soap -- "Directions: Use like regular soap."
(and that would be?)
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
On packaging for a Rowenta iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
(but wouldn't this save me time?)
On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(well, I certainly hope so)
On a Japanese food processor -- "Not to be used for the other use."
(now, somebody out there, help me on this)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(oh, good grief)
On a Swedish chainsaw -- "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
(Oh my Lord..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)
Oh, don't worry, I've got your weekly "aw".
How about this one?
I know you said it.
Okay, that's it. Did we get you over the mid week hump and on the slippery slope to the weekend? Good. Did you have a favorite?
Take care. See you next Friday.
Thought for the Day:
I'm praying for my hometown of Boston and for everyone affected by yesterday's tragic events.
