A Page Out of Donkey's Book

In the morning... I'm Making Waffles!

Every Sunday morning, the Bear and I make waffles.

The bear assists me as pictured by helping me put ingredients into the bowl. He has to put a pinch of "magic powder" into the mix to make it tasty. (Magic powder is none other than plain old Morton salt. :) )

I mix it all together, then he stirs and stirs with his spoon. He is under the impression that the longer he stirs, the more waffles there will be.

I found a fantastic waffle recipe* on the internet, but alas, even though it found great favor amongst the tribe, I was compelled to improve upon it.

I tossed in a few new ingredients, mixed it up in the blender, crossed my fingers, toes, and eyeballs, and presented DramaMama with the first from the Mickey Mouse waffle iron. I cringed as fork traveled from plate to mouth.

My heartbeat quickened as she began to chew.

The suspense grew until.....

"That is SOOOOO good!"

Apparently the Mad scientific experiment was a success and Weezilsteins monster was in reality a tasty treat.

Dave,

I love it! The more he stirs the more waffles! What a great kid concept. See, they are smarter than us. They can take concepts you and I would dismiss immediately and make them plausible. Even reality.....

The Bear is my fave: he should have his own blog

Hey Dave,

Thanks for dropping by. I shouldn't even be on here, because I've only logged 41 words today for NaNoWriMo...ah well. Tomorrow's another day.

I'm so happy to hear about you and DramaMama. May I interview you for the success story section of my blog? And for any possible tips for the long distance dater?

(I hope you say yes)

Peace,
Abby(liqua that is)

Abbyliqua:

That name cracks me up. Perfect.

That would be fun to be interviewed, I'm Sure DramaMama would love that.

Her blog is: http://dramaqueensguide.blogspot.com/

I'm at about 230 words with NaNoWriMo. I tried last week to come up with a story idea, but tonight started with bupkis.

I now at least have an idea and some slapped together words.

I am putting up another blog to sport my crap for NaNoWriMo. That's at:
http://davethefictionwriter.blogspot.com/

I will be putting a link on Weezil Breezes to it.

I did a little math, and we need to be writing about 7 pages a day to make 50,000 words.

Good Luck and welcome to our writing community.

Dave-
I've been through here before but stopped to give you a more serious look through on the recommendation of Eric (Blogging Boss.) I really like what you have here. Your love for your family is obvious. I think you're gonna go on the 'ol blogroll.

LOL!!!!

Oh, I love it.

What a great dad/son picture!!

Oh, and while I'm over here tippety-typing away:

The following is NOT optional: I SIMPLY MUST see a photograph of you as Commander Riker. Absolutely. And as soon as possible, please.

That's an order, Number One!

PS: This is facinating this NaNoWriMo. This was the first I've heard of it.

For me it would never work because I just write when I've got an idea. I've never needed a deadline and I hate feeling pressured...of course when I sit to write it all just starts pouring out.

I'm finding it entertaining reading about everyone's craziness as they attempt 50,000 words in a month...Good luck to everyone!
