Saturday centus ~ The screen

Well this week dear Jenny has decided to give us a visual prompt instead of a written prompt ... yeah ... i enjoyed getting her words stuck in my brain ... rattling around, looking for companions of my own making ... now it's this d@*# picture ... which has me all confuzzled ... so here's the picture ... our prompt ... and here's what i came up with.

I got nothing … nadda, nil … get it?  This week’s centus has me feeling about as comfortable as a snowball in an orange grove … melting quickly with no place to hide … so here I sit staring at my almost blank screen … oh, but I do love this screen … after years and years of an ancient tiny screen that my daughter had bejeweled to “make it look pretty” this screen is an amazing pleasure … oh the things I can see … and the things I can’t!

I absolutely loved this picture. I like how you flipped this on its head to tell a story of the love between a woman and her large screen.

My brain is too fried for this. :(

Very funny response to the prompt. I think alot of people felt like that when they first fired up the old computers on Saturday morning! This made me smile (and I'm glad you got a bigger screen!) Kat

This is a tough one, as is this winter in Florida!

Maybe we are heading toward a new ice-age?

Great solution when you are in a pinch. I've does this too. At least you are with us in the game!

Best wishes,

Izzy said...

Loved the photo and how you created your story ;)

I love how you tied in the picture as a metaphor for how the picture prompt made you feel. Great irony!

Also, your story reminded me of when I was a kid and decided I would make my mom's antique dresser "look pretty" with my crayons...opps.

I just couldn't make myself do this one. You did a great job, though. Thanks for your sweet comment on my post.

Just noticed you were from Vancouver when commenting on Pat's blog. I lived in Vancouver the first two years I taught and remember a huge snowstorm that lasted months. Good luck with the snow today - it looks like it will be warming up nicely today.

I'm reading this on my new little notebook laptop and it made me laugh...teensy weensy screen for sure!

What a clever use of the picture prompt.

It's amazing how much nothing can turn into something when you need it to.

Thanks for linking.
