Manic Monday: Miss

Of course I've made peace with the fact that I've lost my mind, but there are still times when I miss it. My mind and I would do such fun things together. It would talk to me at 3 in the morning and demand to know why I wasn't sleeping on a bed of asparagus, and I'd reply, "You'll never take me alive, you filthy bastard!"
Then we would both laugh and laugh, while I wrote on myself with purple markers.
I don't remember the exact day my mind left, but I think I was wearing blue.
My mind hated it when I wore blue.
It left to run off with some nerdy guy from Luxembourg. His name might have been George.
Sometimes I miss George too.

Personally, I think you've pretty well found your mind and know how to use it!

Gattina said...

Oh my ! and now you have to look after your mind without mind ! That will be very difficult as you can't remember anything without mind, lol !

Janna said...

Gracie: Wow, that's the best compliment I've heard all day!

Gattina: It's ok. I don't mind.

Meloncutter said...

If by chance you come up with an extra mind, it could be mine. Please check and let me know if you find it. I will pay the postage.

Later Y'all.

Janna said...

Meloncutter: Is yours the one that smells like burrito farts?

Jamie said...

George ran out on your mind, moved to Canada and is living with a sudden idea in Alberta.

Neila said...

HA! I think I saw your mind vacationing in Branson. It was enjoying a country jamboree show, and getting ready to go paddle boating. ;-)

crazy working mom said...

Maybe my mind ran away with yours...

Marilyn said...

I think we could have a nursery rhyme here.

...and Gearge ran away with her mind.

Even without your mind you could come up with the rest better than I could.

the108 said...

Comedy + said...

Bwhahahah, okay Empress Bee cracked me up. Very well done Janna and I'm with Gracie...Me too thinks you are very wise. Have a great MM. :)

Matt-Man said...

Can I have some of what you're smoking Janna?

Morgen said...

and the dish ran away with the spoon...
hmmm... sleeping on a bed of asparagus.
is that the fluffy-looking but actually spiny asparagus fronds, or a bed of raw asparagus spears or a nice platter of sauteed in butter asparagus yummies?

bundle-o-contradictions said...

I'd offer you a piece of my mind, but I can't even pay people to take it!

Janna said...

Jamie: Wow, George is a jerk...

Neila: My mind would never enjoy a Country jamboree show. :)

CWM: Possibly!

Marilyn: Great idea; I'll have to think about that!

The108: Now THAT'S the kind of comment I love to get!!! :)

Bobby: ok.

Bee: Well, some of those burrito farts were MINE...

Comedy+: So that's TWO people now that think I'm wise. Cool!!!!

Matt-man: Make me a loosemeat sandwich first...

Morgen: The raw spears.

Bundle: I've been having the same problem lately!

Bond said...

Is it possible your mind and mine have run off to wherever minds run when they do...so if I had a mind this might even make sense...

Janna said...

Bond: I'm thinking mine probably went someplace cool, like Greenland.

Linda said...

My mind wandered off ages ago and has yet to come home so I bought another on eBay and so far it seems to work okay though it occasionally has little glitches that require me to smack myself upside the head to get my mind going again. The cost wasn't bad but the shipping and handling was a killer!

Janna said...

Linda: I tried getting one on e-bay too, except I ended up getting sniped at the last minute by some bidder from Australia.

Anonymous said...

damn Australians

Mert said...

Yup, I can relate... my mind left th first time I changed a poopy diaper and it's been sending me letters from all over the world since then. ;)

Lynda said...

Mind? You had one? I am jealous!

Travis said...

You've done it again! I have dissolved into a fit of giggles and it's all your fault.

Congratulations and happy MM!

BTW - why aren't you sleeping on a bed of asparagus?

Hey! Pass me a purple marker and I'll autograph ya!

Janna said...

Anonymous: They DO have cool accents, though.

Mert: I can understand how that would scare it away!!!

Lynda: All I have left now are my tonsils and my spleen and a couple other random organs I'm not all that sure about.

Travis: The reason I don't sleep on asparagus is because it's so hot here; by the time I woke up in the morning the asparagus would be steamed. And not in a flavorful way.

I Was Born2Cree8 said...

LMAO, Janna. I can relate all too well... scary. I often have thought of posting an ad in the local paper, something like:
Lost: one mind, in the vicinity of the Wild Horse Saloon. Would anyone knowing it's where abouts please call: (phone number). Reward offered.

LOL... would've been funny to see the calls I might have gotten.

Anyway.... thanks for visiting my blog for Manic Monday. Your comment was appreciated.


I need your help and the help of as many people as I can get. Could you please go back to my blog and see the Post It note I left there, this will explain it all. Thanks much.

Imma (Alice)
"Your Majesty"
haha

Janna said...

born2cree8: I just went to your site and voted on which pictures I like best. :)

Angell said...

ROTFLMAO - Janna - it's a great post.

I wish I'd thought of it - it's a great answer to "Have you lost your mind woman?" which is a question I get a lot actually....

Janna said...

Angell: People don't always come right out and ASK me if I've lost my mind, but I can read it in the thought-bubbles above their heads. :)

Lynda said...

Tonsils and a spleen? I heard they are useless.

Janna said...

Lynda: That's why I'm so screwed up!
