OSI Week 22: Faces and UM #16

Make Time for Small Reflections
Scroll down for my Unconscious Mutterings
Camera Critters is in Saturday's post, below this one.

I'm still working on catching up
on Weeks 18, 19, and 20 ... seriously.
The prompt for Week 22 is Faces
Has anyone seen
this musical production
starring large women?

Apparently it's
dubbed 'size XXL Chorus
Line' ... Imagine that!
My 2nd Week 22 OSI post is at Sacred Ruminations.
One Single Impression Week 21: one's here and the other here.

Here are MY responses: I say ... and you think ... ?
  1. Memory :: Sigh ... mine doesn't seem to be as good as it once was. (Thank goodness for my PDA's audible reminders and a bit of help from friends too!)

I've shared this previously, but would like to pass this award on again to all who've visited & commented here at Small Reflections during the month of July ... and encourage you to pass this award on to others to 'share the love' as well. I received it some time ago from Chuck at Foster Me Up, but it was created by Memoirs of a Mommy in honor of the donor who saved her son Noah's life with a heart transplant. Her hopes are that we can create more awareness of the importance of organ donation by passing this award on to others.
The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog. **All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**

Ohhhhhhhhh, Storyteller, I love 'spontaneous' for the change of plan option. Good thinking. Just stop and wonder now, what you'll come up with with your coffee intake! [kidding]-----it'll boggle our minds.

Happy Sunday dear lady. Enjoy the day.

Tina Coruth said...


I enjoyed your "mutterings". It seems we have a similar response to the first one!!

Here's mine:
Memory :: need more - desperately!
Original :: unique
Exclusively :: oh yeah???
Listings :: sad real estate pages
Bucket :: to fetch a
Knight :: in shining armor in (fairy tales only LOL)
Dusty :: Miller (a cool plant)
Choice :: prime
Sunlight :: moonlight
Change of plans :: oh, oh

Have a great week!

storyteller said...

Hootin’ Anni – Ah … thanks for your ‘upbeat’ comment. It led me to re-read my responses and discover they’re not as ‘off’ as I thought initially. I’ve added a One Single Impression post to my ‘mutterings’ and am feeling better about things overall. Apparently the coffee helped as I’d hoped ;--)

Tina – Thanks for ‘muttering’ along with me. Ya know what they say about ‘birds of a feather’ … right? I especially enjoyed your responses to ‘exclusively’ and ‘knight’ … and ‘change of plans’ too.

Thanks to both of you for lifting my mood and energy levels with your comments. Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Raven said...

Interesting OSI... great response to the prompt. The what comes to your mind list item that stuck out for me was dusty. Dust seems to gravitate to me. I have given up fighting it.

SandyCarlson said...

Interesting way to begin a conversation! Thanks for joining in, Storyteller!

osi:>thanks for ur delightful contribution/Dusty:in the open the
rain can handle it..always wonder as to how u manage time_so well..many thanks..

Joyce said...

Hi, Storyteller,

You've already done the OSI prompt, in a fun, unexpected way. I'm still cogitating about it . . .

Hope you have a lovely day. :)

Karen said...

I like these faces, too--I'm going to check out that musical!

And now to play--

Bucket::There's a hole in the...
Knight::Orlando Bloom (ok, I don't know where that's coming from...except maybe I've developed a bit of a crush on him...maybe...)
Sunlight::No vampires
Change of plans::Stress

Now I'm going back to read yours!

storyteller said...

Raven – I’m glad you enjoyed my OSI idea. As for dust … it’s right up there with ‘clutter’ in my environment … and I’m doing what I can, but allowing things to just be … trying not to stress myself out.

Sandy Carlson – I’d come across the ‘ad’ for this musical a while back, but I don’t know anyone who has seen it. When I saw today’s OSI prompt, it seemed a ‘natural’ …

Zoya – You’re quite welcome. I’m delighted you found it delightful! As for managing my time, it seems totally out of control to me, but I’m hoping to catch up in the next few weeks.

Joyce - Yup … I’ve done THIS week’s prompt twice (once on each blog), but I’ve yet to do 18, 19, or 20 … sigh! They’ll be shared when (or if) I finish what I’ve started but not had time to complete.

Karen – Let me know if you hear anything about it and I’ll do likewise. Thanks for ‘muttering’ along with me. Your responses to ‘memory’ and ‘original’ seem so perfect I don’t know why they didn’t come to my mind this morning. I also especially enjoyed your responses to ‘bucket’ … ‘choice’ … and ‘sunlight.’

I appreciate each of you visiting today and sharing your thoughts. I’ve had a pleasant Sunday … most of which was spent AWAY from the computer, but I should have ‘catch-up’ time during the next month when school is not in session. Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend too.
Hugs and blessings,

Memory :: loss
Original :: work

4. Listings :: TV
5. Bucket :: List
6. Knight :: in shining armor
7. Dusty :: rose
8. Choice :: selection

Momisodes said...

Wow! I had never heard of that musical before :)

Loved reading your answers. I feel like my memory is fading these days too.

storyteller said...

Edward – I’m glad you enjoyed my OSI response and appreciate you ‘muttering’ along today. Your responses to ‘bucket,’ ‘knight,’ ‘dusty’ and ‘sunlight’ are my favorites.

Eve – I love that Barbra Streisand song and don’t know why it didn’t occur to me! Well done. I also found your associations to ‘knight, dusty, and sunlight’ most intriguing. Thanks for playing along here.

Lisa – How fun to have you ‘mutter’ along today also. Your responses to ‘original,’ ‘Knight,’ and ‘Dusty’ captured my attention and seem unique.

One More Believer – I’m delighted you enjoyed my OSI post and my blog ;--)

Sandy – I don’t know much about it myself, but it seemed a ‘natural’ for this week’s OSI theme. Seems like you’ve got lots going on, so it’s no wonder you’ve experienced ‘memory’ issues. Hopefully things will sort themselves out soon.

To all – Thanks to all of you for visiting and sharing your ideas. I love finding comments and visiting others as time permits. Hope you’ve had a good day and have a pleasant evening too.
Hugs and blessings,
