Saw that, too. :(
Yupper, the one that's not a nickel is the quarter. I think I was suggesting you put some easy riddles like that on your page or just look some up to fight that compulsion. But, now I realize your "side project" is not what I imagined. (see other below) :)
No offense :) but your idea of "easy riddles" is one of my levels of personal hell. So, no, won't be adding any pages llike that to my site!
Umm, believe it or not it took a half an hour before I got that one. Also, the answer was revealed to me. So; "I really did NOT get it". I just raised my hands in disgust when I heard it, but it's a cute riddle for kids! :)
"Hmmm... (?)" what? :)
Got an email from sis saying; "You wrote that wrong on there". I didn't ask her 'what', so I was looking with strained eyes last night. Just got off the phone and it's down lower on a post. I'll correct it.
Ya gotta go with yer gut, I agree. Maybe a sort of small page that is "short-and-sweet" of sorts. OR better yet, add to your interests section to nip that urge in the bud! Hmm? Whadya think?
Oh, I think I asked awhile back what particular TV Shows and Movies you're fond of (past or present). Does that help? Show me yours, I'll show ya mine! Har-har... oh, you catch my meaning. Something like that might curve that urge as well. :)
Plus, I'll figure out your "60/40-Viola" name game. I guessed "April", but that's too easy. Hope that helps (above) and I'll get back to ya later. :)
Huh, that's odd. Wait... hmm. Read above yer post: https://neocities.org/site/kenny46140 Anyway, I said "curve" and think I meant "curb". Umm, "Jenny, Ginny, or Linda"? No, too easy. Gotta get some stuff done. Later, tater! :)
Back! Had another idea so yer not tempted; Easy Riddles! Maybe(?). Like; "You have two coins that equal 30 cents. One is NOT a nickel." Follow? Just an idea. Silly, maybe. ;)
Back (again). It "is" Jennifer. Wait... aw, where'd I put that note-to-self. Here it is. Ugh, wrong one. It says; "not jennifer and ask about.." Oh, yeah! Need any sort of graphic or certain image? I can probably make it. Eh, will make a few today just for grins if I get a chance. No prob.
It's not April or Linda although I do like those names. Ginny and Jenny are way off the mark. Remember I said "my full name" (re ratio). So my first name doesn't actually follow the 60/40 ratio. What people usually call me *does* have five letters, but it doesn't follow the ratio either. Sorry. I should have been more clear, but I wasn't expecting anyone to try to figure it out. :)
I'm afraid I don't understand your suggestions re curbing my temptation. Distraction won't help (I'm constantly distracted by everything) and all my energy is going into the side project anyway. Brain in permanent cramp mode, I guess :(
I got it; The 'name thing'. I just like thinking of word puzzles sometimes while I'm woking on stuff. And "now" I get what you mean by "side project". I thought it was perhaps a web-page design! Duh! <-me! Yup, brain farts "do" happen! My bad. I'll ask, what's the general idea of your side project as not to kill it?
I have loads of side projects. Some impulsive, some drawn/thought out and others well, just 'shelved'. They mostly involve little to no money. Example: awhile back I refurbished and repaired some old advert electric lit wall clocks and gave them to fam members. Got some old lawn/garden junk to make lawn art out of. Stuff to make lamps out of. Ya, know... stuff like that. Maybe for garage sale or trading. (shrug)
So, yup; You decide: "What's the general idea of your side project as not to kill it?" Now ya got me thinkin'... Ouch! Yup, it hurts! :)
Side project is an offshoot of the writing thing, and does involve a web page (design more-or-less finalised now). Because I've been working on it every day for more than a week it feels well-developed to me, when I look at it, but I need to keep reminding myself that someone who is *not* me probably won't see it that way. It needs more content before I release it "into the wild" so to speak. :)
Way cool! Sounds like you've got it under control. I used to write years ago, but life twists and turns. Long ago, my li'l sister had found a few of my hand-written short stories in my 'old room'. It was the early days of internet and she typed them out and sent them in to this "contest" thingy. She surprised me by showing me they'd won some kind of award. I was embarassed and glad our names were NOT on them! :)
Funny, I've actually not typed nor written "this" much in a very long time either. Not even emailed in awhile... huh. Gonna write my cousin. Hope to get more internet time. Have been kinda busy. Lookin' forward to your "project"! Cool-cool! :)
correction: My sis had sent in some short stories long ago and "she'd" gotten an award for "her" story. Not the ones of mine she sent it. Hell, neither of us even remember where it was! TOO long ago! Slept since then!
The compulsion has passed. Just thought I'd let you know :)
