Fun With Daryl


A few days ago, our friend Daryl in NYC posted a wordle she created, and basically told us to all go forth and wordle as well.  Being very bovine-like, I followed along and made my wordle.  Only when I went to post it on here, it was about the size of a pinky fingernail.  No kidding.  It really pissed me off annoyed me.  Since I was festering in cranky and miserable juices, I just threw up my hands and went to find something else in my house to get mad about do.  

Later, Daryl and I were exchanging emails where I might have whined about how the stupid mentioned that my wordle wasn't loading into my blogger post so that anyone other than a Polly Pocket might be able to read it.  She offered to fix it for me.  So here you have it:  The Mental Wordle made possible by Daryl.  Now all of you go off and wordle, too.  It's fun.  Unless you are as dumb technically challenged as I am.

On another Daryl note, and, no, she is not paying me for all these props, although that might be nice she made up her own Award, and gave me one!  I think this one might just be my favorite, and I ask you to marvel in its creative little self.  It almost got me out of my old lady funk.
On second thought, now that I see this, I think I will break out of my old lady cranky funk.  And I want to share it with you all.  I think many of you have received this award because I am late in posting this treat.  But I've been a miserable no good bitch bit busy.  Now go forth and spread the love.  I am finally in a good mood, and I want to see this everywhere I go.  Mkay.

okay you make me laugh...and I know I'm computer challenged...this is like the most expensive solataire machine and this will look like a totally stupid question to everyone else...how do you put the line through your words...I would so much rather do that than go back and delete and really say what I mean????? I like the wordle...

I love the wordle and you are so "in" for doing it.

holly said...

daryl ROCKS. i will punch anyone who thinks otherwise. fortunately, no one does.

nice wordle. very wordly. :)

why does that look like 'worldly'? i didn't mean 'worldly'.

WORKING MOM said...

You're not so computer challenged. Love the wordles.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

You are definitely not technically challenged, because that honor belongs to me...I cannot do anything but up load one picture and type text and that is usually with the help of a 12-year-old.

I'm glad the skies are clearing for you. Hopefully they'll stay clear for a while.

Debbie said...

Well I'll be damned. I was going to ask the same friggin question about the line thru the words and I've been wondering about it for months!! Shit what a coincidence!

Now, back to your post...I'm happy when Mama is happy and I am going to have to go check out the Wordle thing since I was so distracted by the line thing!

asthmagirl said...

I have to go. Just taking a moment to hug your cranky-old-lady self!

HAve a wonderful day!

Debbie said...

Now you have me playing with wordle and it's not as big as yours dammit!! Also, are you giving us this award or am I brain dead?

Daryl said...

STOP ... you are ruining my mean rep....

I had the same problem when I posted my wordle last week. I had to save it as a jpeg and tinker w/ it in photobucket. (ok...a year ago those sentences would have made NO sense)

tj said...

...Hello MPM! I have to say that my OCD self just can't seem to wrap itself around the "wordle"... I made out words such as "pot", "CBW", "wrecked", "green", etc...is there a correlation there? Is there supposed to be? It looks neat tho'. :o)

...And I could see where the lil' award could lift someone out of her funk - too cute! I didn't get anything like that, I had to go outside and kick dirt and throw cracked eggs in the woods...I'm better now, thanks.

...And ya know, I just figured out the other day that your lil' profile photo is a ceiling fan and NOT a flower. Yeah, I'm a lil' slow like that (*sigh*) ;o)...

...Glad you're feeling better!

...Blessings... :o)

Meg said...

Ah, yes, the wordle...very, very cool!!!

Congrats on doing it, even with help!

Glad you are feeling better...from one hell bitch to another...*sigh*...

imbeingheldhostage said...

This had me laughing out loud (with you, not at you). And some of us are even MORE challenged than you can ever imagine... the thought of having to create a wordle actually made my pulse quicken.

Mental P Mama said...

Y'all are so funny. I am serious. I am challenged in all things tech. My blood pressure was a bit elevated at a little checkup today. I hold the wordle accountable. Not the fact that I am 48 and need to lose 15 pounds;)

Snooty Primadona said...

I have a very hard time picturing you as an old gritch, but I understand where you are coming from, for sure.

Ok, I must be stoopid too because I can't get the darned wordle thing to work. I had all the words typed in then got nothing. When I tried to go back, it had all disappeared. Sigh.

Alias Liz Jones said...

Dear Mental P, This wordle is new to me, but I'm slow anyway. If wordleing will make me feel happy, then I'm going to wordle like mad, or just get mad trying to wordle.
Thanks for the tip.
Liz

Keetha said...

I so want to wordle. But I can't figure out how to do it - upload the picture to my blog - either! I just want to use the word wordle in a post. It's the coolest. But I feel I need to have said wordle for the wordle post to make sense. Yes?

By the by, you are indeed just plain fun to read.

Bear Naked said...

That's a ceiling fan????
Who knew?
I thought it was a flower also.

I also want to know how to put the line through the words.
I was afraid to ask figuring that EVERYONE but me knew how to do it.

Aren't wordle and daryl wonderful?
The floors don't have to be vacuumed and the laundry can wait.
I must wordle.

Bear((( )))

Dr. Atkins is being good to me so far. 5 lbs in 4 days. So far, so good. Of course, I'm starving...

I like the "games as a form of meditation!"

dlyn said...

Thanks for showing me another lovely way to waste time - the wordle. Like I needed one! And glad you are feeling better!

MamaGeek said...

Don't be in a good mood yet - your crankiness rocks. Okay I kid, I kid.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

cool I will have to try wordle and cool award!

Magpie said...

wordle is cool...

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I had no idea that was a ceiling fan either....always said to myself, what a pretty flower.

now i'll just say, what a pretty ceiling fan!

Egghead said...

Wordle is fun...too fun. I couldn't decide which font to use. Don't worry, be cranky!

Flash Stitcher said...

Yes, Wordle, another fasinating thing to do on the computer instead of paperwork, paying bills or that housework stuff. Laundry does get done as it does not need immediate attention!

Bust my bucket...a ceiling fan! I too thought it was a beautiful flower!

Now, about that little thing with the lines....We all want to know how as that is such a great trick!

You make me smile and be in a good mood even when you are in a foul mood. I have found few who are as honest, open and fun. Thanks.

Flea said...

So very cool, the wordle and your lovely award!

Flea said...

How did she fix it? Mine is teeninsy too.

While I'm happy that you're out of your cranky phase, I'm also a little conflicted.

I'm still in mine, and it looks as though it might last the entire summer (except when I'm away for 2 wks.). I was hoping we could commiserate, but now I'll just look to your sunshine-y disposition as inspiration!
