Or...on the ninth day of September, the random topic generator gave to me...

The thing to be stretched properly wasn't specified and the first that came to mind was stretching a dollar or a can of tomato sauce, good skills for anybody to have.

I usually associate stretching with Gumby or Stretch Armstrong.

More stretching here….. )

I found a nice random blog topic generator.  When I first looked at it, the subjects were pretty straightforward - getting up in the morning, all the jobs you've ever worked, cities to visit.  I figured I could work with something in there even though I did get the one about the Egyptian fish god named Ren.  So I tried it for today's entry and what did I get?

Homer depictions

What does that even mean?  I'm not a classics scholar so that is out as a blog option.  There are a few other ways I could write about this though, so without further ado, here's what Homer depictions are to me.  Feel free to add your own interpretation.  Even an interpretive dance would probably work.

Various Homers with plenty of pictures…. )

I was really hoping picking a random word would spur me to write something every day. I ended up with bathtub, force, and month and I was able to pull something together and then I got the word male and I just didn't want to try and write something about that so I tried the generator again even though that's probably cheating.  The next word was psychoanalysis and at that point I was sufficiently weirded out that I wanted to see what else might show up. I wondered what the pool of words was.  Then I got liberalize and figured I couldn't even use that in a sentence unless it was about pot laws.  I tried a different generator and got the following:


Then I tried another database that gave me six words at a time.  They sound like a kink meme gone slightly astray, if that's possible.


Maybe I should try some of that liberalizing psychoanalysis after all.  I gave up and went to a random subject generator that gave me a few things I think I can work with so I'll try that. Tomorrow.  Although it did give me this gem....

The Egyptian fish god named Rem

So, how was your day?

First of all, my hat is off to anybody who participates in any kind of challenge where they have to produce something in 24 hours.  Trying to do an entry a day has showed me how much of a challenge this really is.  Right now, the [ profile] artpaperscissor challenge is going on and if you haven't had a chance to see what's been done so far, have a look.  It's all wonderful.

The latest word kicked out by the random word generator was month.  I don't even know where to start with this one.  A month is a length of time originally established to track the phases of our Moon.  Here's a random list of things we measure or number by month rather than by day or year.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
Employment statistics
Age of children under 2 years old (24 months)
Time left in the senior year of high school until about March and then we switch to days
SPN hiatus back in May
Time early in a relationship
Length of a season - summer months, winter months
Plans for weight loss or quitting smoking
Planning a wedding
Training for a marathon
Recommended time between teeth cleanings
Leases and mortgage interest

Here's a list of things I like about this month, September, in the northern hemisphere.

Back to school time
Cooler, dryer air but still warm days
The gorgeous color of the late day sunlight
Leaves start changing color
Harvest time for lots of veggies and fruits
Canning tomatoes
Wild rice harvest
Harvest Moon (September 8-9, 2014.  It’s also a supermoon this year.)
Autumnal equinox - first day of fall
Beginning of playoffs for Major League Baseball...World Series, here we come.

There are some major holidays in September but here is a list of some more obscure ones.

9/7  National Salami Day
9/8  National Hug Your Hound Day
9/11  National Make Your Bed Day
9/13  Roald Dahl Day - author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
9/16  Trail of Tears Commemoration Day
9/21  World Alzheimer's Day
9/22  Hobbit Day - birthdays of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins
9/26  Johnny Appleseed Day
9/29  National Coffee Day

I hope your September is a good one.

Today's word is force and I could have taken this in a million directions but I had fun yesterday with Archimedes so while yesterday's other word was eureka, today's other word is ouch.  Sir Isaac Newton probably said it after an apple dropped on his head causing him to reflect on gravity.  Newton figured out how to relate motion and acceleration with force and came up with a series of laws.  They pretty much explain how the mechanical universe operates.

Here they are with some practical applications.

Physics talk with fandom examples….. )

To get myself to write an entry each day for September, I'm going to use a random word generator as a prompt.  Today is brought to you by the word bathtub.

A variety of thoughts prompted by today's word plus caps.... )
