a PE curiosity

I was standing in a local elementary school gym for an event recently.  On the wall were the usual posters on might find in a school gym:  the food pyramid, pictures of kids exercising, sports teams and such.

One poster had a list of locomotive movement: leaping, walking, running, climbing, etc.

That all makes sense.  Until I got further down that list and saw "karaoke" listed.

Is karaoke a form of exercise?  I never knew

Stories By Molly

This is my new blog, dedicated to my story writing.  I'll post stories that I'm working on.  Most of them are works in progress.  See the side bar of the blog for the various stories available to read.

Please visit: Stories by Molly

All these stories are original works of fiction.  Currently, there are three stories posted.

Joia and the Guild is a fantasy story for children and young adults.  It is a work in progress but I'm very pleased with it.

Untitled Story: Paul and Nora is an adult fiction chick lit.  Adult fiction meaning that it is not a children's book as most of my stories are.  I've never written adult fiction before and I'm finding it challenging.  It's a chick lit.   :)  Work in progress...

Doctor Who fanfic: Merry and the Doctor.  My kids got me hooked on Doctor Who.  I've seen all the modern series that is 6 1/2 seasons long.  I'm also working my way through the Classic Doctor Who and I've seen Doctors #1, 4, 5, 7, and 8.  Of the classic Doctors, Eight is my favorite and is the feature Doctor of my story.  It's a fun, easy reading bit of fan fiction.  This story is complete.

I have plans to include other stories that I'm working on.  I would appreciate any comments, good or bad.  Find some spelling errors?  Let me know. I edit my work, but sometimes you just can't spot the mistakes in your own writing.  Thanks for reading!

The Ultimate in Laziness: Part 2

I hope the irony of the last post was not completely lost. (I didn't even bother to capitalize the few words I typed.)

I've been meaning to blog about this for a while, but I haven't.  I've been too lazy.

Yesterday my sister and I were discussing our laziness.  Now truthfully, she is about the 3rd least lazy person I know.  The only two who come before her in unlaziness is my mother and my gran. So, my sister is not a lazy person, but she is feeling like she is and I'm feeling like I am.

I told my sister about a recent display of laziness I have begun to show:  the microwave.  The microwave is the most lazy way to cook something.  Turn it on and within seconds or minutes, the food is nuked and ready to eat.  How do you make cooking with the microwave lazier?  I'll tell you:

When I need to microwave something for one minute, I don't put in the 6 and the 0 to make sixty.  I push the 6 twice.  Why bother moving my finger from the 6 to the 0 when I can just do 66?  If the food needs 30 seconds, I do 33.  That way I don't have to move my finger to the zero.

That is the ultimate in lazy.
