Topical Sun

Topic 1
I have absolutely nooooooo strategy whatsoever when it comes to games other than card games. If you have one ounce of strategy and we go head to head at, say, Stratego, you're winning. I know why. It's because I prefer not to know how things are going to end. I like the surprise of it all.

If I'm in a meeting or in the middle of a sticky business problem I have oodles of strategy, oodles of brainstorming ability, walk myself right out of the box, grab the solution, tuck it under my arm, and quietly hand it over to the group.

Sit me down in front of a Rubik's Cube, however, and I'm stuck there indefinitely. Past dinner. Past breakfast. Past my 40th birthday. Past retirement. Except if no one's looking, and then I strategize to take the stickers off and put them "where they belong". :)

This three-year-old girl has way more strategy than I'll ever dream of having, and equally impressive is that she has the dexterity of an adult.



What the hell is in her baby bottle?


Topic 2
Saturday morning I had a dream that the cylons attacked Earth. I never found out if I was a cylon but I do know that my female co-workers did not fare well in the fight. I looked up into the sky and directly above my head I saw the underbelly of the base ship through the dark storm clouds. It was beautiful. I think that means that I am, in fact, a cylon.


Topic 3


Where the good/only gay bar in town used to be? Now a different type of meat bar -- a Papa John's. (No cockroaches, Avi.)

I'll eat Papa John's now - that was three years ago.

And I guess you must be a Cylon - We're all in trouble now!

RW said...

That little girl is actually a Cylon...

Miss Britt said...

I have more strategy in board games and ridiculous "brain busters" than I do with real life I think.

Mel said...

You are incredibly hot and sexy... so, of course you are a cylon! No brainer there, Poppy ;)

Cayenne pepper on geese poop? that is some creative strategy right there ;)

Poppy Cede said...

Why is everyone capitalizing cylon? Humans are humans, not Humans. Are cylons German?! And when I say everyone I just mean Avi and RW.

Avi - I'm a nice cylon.

RW - I believe that.

Britt - Stick us together into one superhuman and we conquer the world.

Mel - An excellent point.

Bearette - I never talked about cayenne pepper and geese poop in the same post so I have no idea why someone clicked on the search link to my blog... Can't they tell from the description they're not going to find what they're looking for? Yes, yes they can.

And now if you'll all excuse me, I must return to my shitty fan.

Avitable said...

It's "Cylon" - it's a brand name from when they were originally created.

Poppy Cede said...

Avi, you know I know you're always right but I choose to defy you, right? Because that makes life more interesting. :) WHERE ARE MY PINK PUFFY HEARTS?!
