Sunday Ramble No. 16 #em-srp

E. M. tells us that the topic for this week is "Life And Positivity." This should be fun…

What are the greatest attributes about you that make you feel good about yourself? My imagination and my ability to immerse myself in my own little world when needed.

What is/are your biggest motivation/s to get things done? Rapidly approaching deadlines.

Is that pizza??

Do you have any tips that could help others with their own motivation? Honestly? No. However, Dave Barry once said that when he’s having trouble writing, he sits back and thinks about a career as a coal miner, and that usually motivates him.

As you are sitting there reading this question, look around you. What item in your home/work/car (wherever you are) made you smile when you looked at it? The picture of Mr. Peanut on the jar of peanuts I’m eating.

What always makes you laugh and smile in your life? Watching pie fights…

Those are my answers, and I’m sticking to them…

Tally-ho and away we go!
See you next week with a brand new show!

  1. Deadlines help me too!
    I also like the idea of thinking of a coal miner and the hard labor to stir up perspective
    Dr ZAch Bush says he watches WWII stuff when he needs a perspective shift!


  2. Great answers, John, and I enjoyed the images you added along with them. I am with you on the deadlines. I tend to get really motivated when I have a due date. I enjoyed the positivity, and I miss eating peanuts! I cannot eat them with my dentures. Mr. Peanut would make me smile too 🙂 I think everyone should have at least one pie fight in their lives. How about you? Thanks for rambling with me, and have a great week, John!


  3. I always laugh a pie fights and this one is great! I always wanted to be in a pie fight strangely because it looks like fun. I also agree with that quote about the coal miners. My greatest attributes?? I have been told I make people feel better…that or my boobs:)). I am looking at a picture of me with my doggie Wallace when we first got him over 12 years ago. As to get things done? Like you-deadlines.


      1. I had to go to youtube and watch it. Look how everyone started to laugh as Moe explained the different ways to throw the pie. I loved that Ted Knight was there.

        1. I love at the end when the whole thing descended into anarchy. It’s unsophisticated comedy for sure, but sometimes that’s the best kind.


  4. That quote about the coal miner made me laugh. And it made me grateful I don’t have to write (or do much of anything) for a living. Mr. Peanut? Never heard of that!
