I got ... jack ...

yeah ... jack ... nada, nil, nothing ... jack

and its a shame cuz so many wonderful things start with J ... like Joy ... Jo (me)  tee he he... Jerk (my nickname) and that's a whole other story and really it is  not an indication of my character, rather its a name my dad gave me based on the way i jerked my little body across the floor when i was a toddler ... i never did crawl ... i went from nothing to jerk to walk ...

but back to the jack ... the nothingness this week ... really it wasn't nothing, it was kind of more than nothing ... it was kind of the perfect storm in the past week ... there was family drama, friend drama, pet drama, computer drama, camera drama, drama drama ... 

"Ahem, Mona Lisa Mae here ... we interrupt Jo's rant about the storm that surrounds her to remind her of simple pleasures ... 

like shopping together ...


sipping pretty drinks together ...



going to the lion king together ... and remember Jo ... like Rafiki says, It's in the past."


now what was I ranting about??? oh yeah ... jack ...


This post was brought to you by the letter J, and the wondrous Jenny Matlock and her Alphabe-Thursday meme.

I don't know what that drink is but I want one, or two. And I've so wanted to see The Lion King. Happy Friday.

Sorry it was a dramatic week. Good to have Mona Lisa around to remind you that all that is jack isn't black.

Oh dear! Sorry about all your dramas (sorry your post had me laughing)...but I agree with the other commenters-good to have Mona Lisa Mae around and haha Su-siee! Mac's comment made me laugh too-"Some days I prefer jack. It's so much more peaceful."

Hope you have a awesome week, drama-free. And although you said you had "jack", Mona Lisa Mae showed us you had quite a bit of fun at dinner and the Lion King! :o)

Blessings & Aloha!

Ha! That's how I felt with J. The jingle bells things was a last ditch effort to save the meme. Thanks for stopping by -- I always enjoy your visits and your sweet comments.

Lourie said...

When I here "Jack" I think of: Captain Jack Sparrow, Jack Bauer, Jack Shepherd, and Jack Tripper. I think I watch too much TV. :P

Amiko said...

I sometimes call all my friend Jack, not their names. hi, Jack... how are you doing? lol

Have a great week!

Mary said...

Mona Lisa is so wise :-)

Izzy said...

Splendid Little Stars said...

yep. the simple things--and somebody to share them with!

Love Mona Lisa Mae, what a great gal to have around. She drinks, eats and enjoys cool theatre - I adored Lion King

Terri said...

I enjoyed your post. Yes, drama can creep in and then multiply!! Yikes!
And the best way to cool it down is to focus on something good, just like your little friend helped you to do. That is one smart friend!
Your blog is a good thing....
Thank you for coming by my blog today.
Hugs,
Terri

I've never seen the Lion King but I would totally love to go. Maybe I can use Mona Lisa Mae's ticket and she can just sit on my lap!

Thanks for a fun stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "J".

You are always a joy to visit.

A+
