Where the ... whatever ... am I?

Warning: W is for Weird? ... and this post sure fits that description - so read at own risk?! LOL 

Why was this STILL in my drafts folder? (dated some time in 2011 ... !!!) 

Why didn't I post it the first time? ... or the second time when I added stuff? ... oh yeah - because I wanted to add a particular photo that is home on the computer, that is not connected to the Internet, and I keep forgetting to go find it and put it on a USB or my iPad or something so I can add it when I am online somewhere - lol 

Why don't I just post it anyway?

Why not? - I can add the photo in the next few days ... IF I remember to go find it - lol
... then again ... I can Wait a few days, then try and remember to post this as my W post, seeing that is What Wednesday ABC is up to next ;)
Of course I might not even be able to find the photo ... seeing I am not sure Which one it Was or When (or Where) I took it ... but I guess if I can't find it, I have plenty of other photos of Wattle, and Webs ... or something else W related ... lol

*saves post as draft ... yet again*

*logs back in ... several days later, on my phone*
ok ... not quite too late to post this for W this time around ... just remembered I had not posted it ...

Oh yeah - I was going to find a photo or 3 to put in here ... 

Well - this one Will Work - I took it this Week - a Wet Web, spotted While Walking the dog in the fog :)

Rather Wonderful, isn't it? :)

Ok ... Time to post this ... OH poop! - I still need to make those URLs into actual links 

*does lots of stuffing around with web browser and copy and paste etc. and gets annoyed because blogger app on phone does not do stuff like make text into links*

Ok ... Added A URL after one of the bits I actually wanted to make into links might show up as a link in the blog ... if not, I will fix things next time I am online on a computer, if I remember - lol

Anyway ... 

The rest of this post is what was already in here before I added the ... Not so ... little bit at the top:

... and Why have I not been posting any Wednesday ABC posts?

hmmm - I Wrote most of this about 6 months ago ... not sure Why I didn't post it at the time though ... probably got busy and didn't get around to logging in and Whacking it up here in time to put it in the Wednesday ABC linky thingy ... so I Will have to see if I get there When it is time for W again - Which it Will be a couple of Weeks after I am typing this bit ... Which I am doing now because I found it when I was looking to see if I had a half Written T post saved as a draft ... I actually didn't, but I do have one that I started, that Was going to be S and T ... but I just posted my S one for this time around ... but I have Thought of at least one idea for IF I get Time to do a T post This week, which I probably won't anyway ... so this Weird W one just might be the next one after the S post I just posted - LOL

Well ... maybe I should just lose the first word of my blog title and call it "too late, as usual"? ... I have written several Wonderful ABC Wednesday posts ... in my head! LOL

(yes - that still applines now, as does the bit below ;-)

... but I just don't seem to have found time to actually get my act together and actually Write and post the darn things. Often it has been because I have been too busy/side-tracked to even get around to putting the photos onto the computer, let alone into the blog posts they Would be perfect for ... and some of those posts are the ones Which I have started Writing last time around and not finished ... others are just stuff that has happened more recently but I have not even started Writing them because I know I am not going to have time to add the photos in time to get my link into the list ...

Luckily my U idea mostly fits into W, as does my V idea ... Which was actually the same as U anyway (yes - I found a way to make it fit U, V and W - LOL)

I Was going to post about Unusual things ... and most of the Unusual things were going to be photos I took of stuff that has happened due to/in the Unusually Wet Weather ... Which is Why it could also have been a V post - for Very Wet Weather - LOL  ... so now it might, providing I actually DO get said photos ONTO the computer, become a post mostly about ... Wet Weather - LOL

... or maybe not ... I might just save those for some other time - there is probably going to be enough other Weirdness in here already - lol

now ... What Was that other idea that I also thought of? ... not Weather related, but something I just thought of While putting some other (even older) photos on to the computer (I only had about 6 memory cards full of photos that I have not put on here yet!) ... it Was the reason I decided to start typing this post now, before I have actually got the photos ready to Whack in here ...

Well of course I remember ... it was this photo of spider Webs on some Wattle:

hmmm - I Wonder Where that photo Was ... I might be able to find it again, if I can remember When I took it ... (my photos are filed in folders, named according to the year/month I took them in)

... Which I took While going for a Wander in the ANBG (the Australia National Botanic Gardens ... actually that link points to more than just the gardens ... they have all sorts of botany/etc information on that website)
Actually I think it might be the Wattles that I Went there to see ... they had a display, Where they got one each of as many species of Wattle as they could and arranged them all in their "family tree" to show each one was related to each other one ... or something like that ... a bit Weird ... but interesting.

While I am here ... this afternoon I spent quite a While playing with GIMP (some free software, for editing/etc images, that I downloaded/installed last night)  ... and, among other things, I created this Weird Wiggly thing:

... Which, hopefully, WILL Wiggle ... if not here, then maybe try clicking on it to go to the full size version - which is already active online (yes - even before I post this - because blogger sticks them in an online album as soon as I upload them), and it seems to be working fine ...
It is an animated .gif  - another result of my messing around with GIMP when I probably shoudl be doing other stuff - LOL
btw, it Was part of a picture of some trees against the sky ... lol

V is for Vegetables, Vegemite, and a Very long time between posts?!

Hmmmm ... got an email to say I had a comment on a blog post ... comment was only spam (telling me my post had "good information" *almost falls of chair laughing* and a dodgy looking link to some website - lol), but the post was an ABC Wednesday one ... so I had a look to see what letter that was up to, because I figured I probably ought to post something so all 1 people who read my blog know I am still alive :)
I also had a comment that wasn't spam ... which is how I know at least one person actually does still look at my blog - hi Grasshopper :)

OK ... The letter V eh? ... Not sure what I would post about for that, maybe I should wait until next week? 
*stares into space, notices Jar of Vegemite at back of desk* ... Hmmm - I am a bit hungry!
... So I got up and made a couple slices of Vegemite on toast, so I could post a photo ... then I ate the toast, because it was so yummy ... and had to make 2 more slices so I could take the photo! LOL
(Which was fine, because I was still hungry ... in fact I am contemplating making 2 more slices after I finish typing this! :)

Anyway ... Here is the photo:

Vegemite is rather strange looking stuff, and in many people's opinion strange tasting ... It is a yeast extract, that has a kind of beefy flavour ... And it is Famous/infamous as that weird stuff us Australians eat ... and for being either Vile, or Very yummy - depending on your taste :)

Re the "What is your most/least favourite Vegetable" question - I like all Vegetables - in fact I even liked Brussells sprouts when I was a child! (and still do :)

Also on the subject of blogging, and the letter V - I am slightly disappointed to notice Blogger still don't have the WYSIWYG post editor as part of the iPad app ... sigh 

*saves post and heads off to find a computer to log on to ...*

... and gets side-tracked somewhere in between the 2 more slices of toast and some work stuff and then having to leave in time to go to a gym class, and doesn't get around to logging on to a computer until 23 hours later - LOL
The links are now added, and a couple of typos fixed (but I am sure I missed some ;)

I really should post more often, but between life still being a combination of busy and things still up in the air, and my only internet access being my phone, and work (lunch time and/or staying back after knock off time), and wherever else I can find free wifi, I don't seem to get around to things like blogging as often as I want to ... then again - even when I did have the internet at home, I still wrote way more good blog posts in my head (while out walking the dog or Geocaching or something) than I ever actually wrote on my blog!

Anyway ... time to log off from this work computer, get out of here :)

How can it be ... ?!

How can it be ... This long since I have blogged?

How can it be ... This late in the year already?
How can it be that Canberra has now just had its Hundred and first birthday? - only seems like the other day I was at the party for Canberra's 100th
How can it be ... Almost a year since my Husband decided to be Horrible and walk out without even discussing it with me? ... just decided, by Himself (and, He admitted - with some Help from His friend!), that we would be Happier apart ...
How can it be ... that I am still waiting to find out what I am now going to do with my life?
... I was Hoping that something would Have Happened by now ... But I am still "Hurry up and wait" ing ...
However ... Life goes on ... Happy mixed with Horrible, like most people have (just some have more or less of one or the other than other people do and different amounts of each Happen at different times ... if that makes sense :)
This post is probably not very exciting reading, but I figured it was time I Hopped in Here and posted something ... because I just Have to try and post something every now and then ... so the world ... Or all ... er ... 1 or 2? ... people who read my blog, know I am still here :)
Hmmmm - my original intention was to post about all the interesting things I Happen to see or do ... AND post something for ABC Wednesday every week ... Oops? (ABC Wednesday is up to the letter H ... but the linky thingy seems to have closed in between when I looked a Half an Hour ago, and typed most of this on my iPad, and when I then Hopped onto a computer to edit before posting, because the blogger app won't let me add links in my post ... and I Had to include a link to ABC Wednesday so u can all go there and see all the more interesting posts :)

Meanwhile ... I have some other stuff I need to hurry up and do (rather than trying to write Horribly long and boring blog posts :) so I will just Hang a photo (or 5 :) on Here and Hop off Hastily :)

Here - Have some ducks, that seemed to be in a Hurry to go somewhere :)

They just Happened to be Hurrying in the same direction as I was, one day when I was riding my bicycle to work (the fact that part of my ride is along the edge of the lake Helps provide incentive to ride, rather than drive, at least a couple times a week ... That, and it keeps me more fit and Healthy :)
