Gibber me timbers!

Bloggie friends!



See that blank word doc behind Charlie? I'm hoping to fill it with gibberish over the weekend!! And not just any ol gibberish - but writerly gibberish! :-)

Will it be for Madeleine's Flowing Fonts blogfest? Or more bad poetry? Or will Charlie scupper my bestest writer-ly intentions by his determination to distract me with his utter cuteness?!?!

Watch this space bloggie, watch this space!

It's Friday!!! It's Friday!!! Notice my huge empty pint glass too? Cheers!!!
:-)

Old Kitty,
I wish you luck in your writing...some days are better than others. The best thing I have done for myself blog-wise is not making a schedule declaring which days I'll post; too much pressure.
Ask Charlie what his opinions are...I'm sure he has some thoughts!
:)

I know I can always come here for a smile, Kitty!
Looks like Charlie might help with the typing as well. "More string please..."

You're so good to help your human Charlie, I bet you're her muse!

Yay for Friday! Happy writing!

Gibberish? I don't believe it for a second! Enjoy your weekend.

Charlie's kind of outlandish cuteness would be mighty distracting. I'd have to pick him up and cuddle him. Would goggles help you focus on the writing? Oh, and I love your poetry, Old Kitty! It's awesome.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Well, fill up that glass and get your muse on Jennifer...

Have a great (productive) weekend!

Brigid said...

Good luck with your writing, tell Charlie he can distract you some of the time with his cuteness!! Happy weekend.

laughingwolf said...

coolios... check out the contest and e-mag launch on my page :)

Madeleine said...

Ooh thank you Old Kitty, I am so pleased you're going to enter my flowing fonts contest. I have changed the rules so you can write it up to a max of 500 words (rather than that it has to be 500 words). I'm so excited. Can't wait. :O)

Brian said...

Cheers to you and Charlie! I hope the blank sheet gets filled in!!!

India Drummond said...

Charlie is so adorable. It's no wonder you find his adorable-ness distracting!

Kea said...

Happy Friday indeed! Well, I do hope you fill your screen with so-called "gibberish" this weekend. Charlie *is* very distracting, though!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Good luck with your writing! That is a great picture.

Boonie S said...

Give in to temptation…. I always do. It’s one of the things that I like about myself.

All the best, Boonie

Reenie said...

Yaaay, FRIDAY!!!
Life is good on Fridays :)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oh Charlie we so hope you win Jen's attention before that blank screen grabs her. Have a floofy weekend Charlie with delicious noms.

Jayne said...

Writerly gibberish is the best kind. :)

And yes, thank Crunchie it's Friday! Darn, I wish I had a crunchie. Or any chocolate. Have one measly Werther and that was given by a colleague!

Justine Dell said...

Do your cat have an obsession with the computer/keyboard, too? I can't keep Little Tart off my laptop!

Have a great weekend!

Marg said...

Charlie, too bad you don't have thumbs, you could start typing on that computer since you hang out there all the time. You really are a cute boy. Hope Mom fills up that screen. Take care and have a fun week end.

Random Felines said...

Cheers - and I would go with the cute!!

lupie said...

Happy Cabbit Year 2011!!

May this Cabbit year bring loads of opportunities (with success), love, happiness, kindness, health and wealth to you, Jenn and Charlie the super cutie!!

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, I hope you get a lot of writerly writing done this weekend.

Rene said...

I'll bet Charlie can help you fill that space with all sorts of characters, fhiowaaaaabkjlea;, and such, LOL! Good luck with your writing.

Manzanita said...

Oh Thank you. I was just writing to my Granddaughter and said, I'm trying to decide if it's Friday or Saturday. when you don't work, all days are alike. I wanted to know, looked at your blog and there it was. Friday. It's so amazing, isn't it, that the Universe always gives you what you want.

I recently saw The Kings's Speech too. Loved it. You are lucky to have royalty. Wish we had traditions. I could do with a little pomp.
Love and peace

Hart Johnson said...

Good luck with the writing! Just remember, you are sure to be more productive if you are also naked.

fairyhedgehog said...

Hope you have a great weekend!

I loved your post on the King's Speech too. Sorry I've not been around much this last week.

Lydia K said...

I love the black and white pattern of his fur. So unique!
Happy Friday!

Ellie said...

Charlie's winking at you. I think he's already planned your gibberish - something to do with writing and drinking a pint at the same time. LOL.

Have an awesome weekend, my friend.

The Golden Eagle said...

Good luck with your writing! I hope you get lots of inspiration over the weekend. :)

Words A Day said...

Go fill that pint glass woman!

Have a great weekend, I'd chose poetry for that blank screen! (Mslexia is open for submission at the moment...!)

Can I thank you as well for the lovely comment on my blog about my poem being published? It meant a lot, you're very kind, and one of the nicest commenters on the blogasphere. i mean that old kitty. Have a great weekend!

ABBY said...

Charlie
Help your Mom fill her page with lots and lots of excellent prose!

Have a great weekend.

Been a while since I had a pint of ale .... I need to get out more, throw some darts, munch on a bowl of peanuts. There's a pub called Mulleady's within walking distance I should visit soon.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Watch out, Charlie might fill that screen with gibberish if he walks on the keyboarad!


Ps: Tell your mom that her winning prize from Brighton's auction isn't lost...it's still here but she will get it in the mail this week. She mailed 9 items last week, 6 this week and has 9 more items to pack up and mail. She didn't think of all that when she was scouring the house looking for items to donate, hahameow!

Patsy said...

Get typing, Kitty!

Guinevere said...

I hope you're having an awesome weekend - full of writing goodness and pints. :)

joanne fox said...

Hope it's going well. May your words flow like Charlie's purrs! x

KarenMcG said...

I don't know, Charlie. It looks to us like that doc can go either way.
What are you going to do to help your mom along with it?

In the meantime, can't fault you for your resting place. Looks pretty comfy.

RaShelle said...

Have fun filling your screen with gibberish. LOL

Love ya both! =D

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I hope you are having a productive writing weekend Jenn! Charlie is a good assistant :)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Gibber me timbers? That must be a new pirate expression. :)

Have fun filling the blank doc.

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

'writerly gibberish!'

You crack me up, Old kitty!

Theresa Milstein said...

How's your writerly weekend going? Hope it's going well!

The Words Crafter said...

I hope by now it's all filled up with some wonderful writerly stuff! And Charlie looks very comfy!

Simon Kewin said...

Heh. I'd go for the poetry and a story involving a cat ...

Talli Roland said...

Hope you're happily typing in gibberish at the moment, Old Kitty! Charlie certainly looks comfy there.

The Creek Cats said...

Hope you've had a fantastic weekend!

Au and Target said...

What did you write???? How furry exciting this is. I've outlined my second romance, Black Magic and Mayhem at the Red Hibiscus. 10,000 words and only 50,000 more to go. Drop me a line to your work, OK?

Lynda Young said...

I hope you filled the blankness with writerly words AND had a great weekend :)

Sweet Praline said...

Thank you so much for your visit and the purrs while we await my test results and for my mom's nerves.

The Teacher's Pets said...

Writer's block is the worst! I read your next post so I see that your creativity bloomed and Charlie was not able to distract you! Bravo!
