Day 1224: Moody

While I do have my moods of joy, sadness, fear, anger, and shame, I don’t think I’m particularly moody.  However, I may be moody when I return to work tomorrow and the weather finally turns beautiful and sunny, which will probably improve other people’s moods.

Yesterday, during a moody and gray day, I was in the mood to see a movie.  So I drove to Waltham, Massachusetts, USA, which has this moody street:


As I walked through moodily quiet Waltham towards the movie theater, I took these moody photos:



When I saw that sign for the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation,  I got into a reminiscing mood, remembering a few years ago when  my son Aaron and my boyfriend Michael were at that museum, enjoying all the interesting moods of a Steampunk festival.

If you’re in the mood for a definition of Steampunk, here’s a short one:

Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.

At that point, I looked up and saw the many moods of these people:


I exclaimed, in an excited mood, “Is today the day???”  And they said, “It is!”  Then I saw more and more people who were in the mood to have their pictures taken:





After I saw that sign that said, “Fear change?  Put it in the Tip Jar!” I was in the mood to tell those people, “Keep a dollar, even though I do NOT fear change.”

I hope you’re in the mood for more pictures from yesterday’s Steampunk Festival in Waltham.






I’m in the mood to tell you that I overheard that guy  ask if his moodily steampunk puppet could sit in that amazing black car (which sometimes gave off moody, billowing clouds of steam).

Still in the mood for more steampunk photos?






By then, I was in the mood to see the moody movie I came to Moody Street in Waltham to see.


Are you in the mood to guess which movie it was?

I took all of those moody photos before the movie actually began.




Seeing Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, and Antonio Sanchez play in person, over the years, have been some of the highlights of my long and moody life.

I’m now in the mood  to write that

If you’re in the mood to check out some Miles Davis tunes on Youtube, you can find that live  performance  of “All Blues” and many more .

How moody are you,  after reading this moody post?

Moody thanks to all who helped me create all the moods of this post and to you — of course! — no matter what your moods are, here and now.

Day 438: Double O

In yesterday’s post, I included this sign, which involved a double 0.


At the hospital cafeteria yesterday, the cashier pointed out that my lunch, made up of soup, salad (priced by weight), and water (pictured here)


.. totaled to a double 0 number:


She remarked that people sometimes swoon when they see Double 0’s like that, on their bill.

A quick aside to Observant Ones, like Mark Bialczak .. Look how my hometown is spelled on that same receipt:


Oops! There should be two O’s in Boston, but no “i.”

Oh-oh. This post may be too goofy, even for me.

Look how loosely I’m using Double O’s: as numbers, as letters, as initials, AND in the middle of words.


I’m stooping to misspelling words, too!

Mood: Gloom. Sense of worth? 00 cents.

Hey, people! Not ALL of these posts are going to be good. Or original. Obviously. OBVIOUSLY!  I WRITE A POST EVERY FRIGGIN’ DAY!

Did I doom things, there, with my attitood?   Am I being too obnoxious? Or Obstreperous?

Or too too …. snooty, using such big words?

Oh, poop.  This is exhausting.

Oh! That reminds me. Yesterday, two observant ones asked me if I was okay.  I was, but I hadn’t gotten enough sleep, the night before. That happens to me, sometimes.

Yes, dear readers, I’ve given up on the premise of this post, okay? OKAY? It’s too difficult to sustain.  I want to end this post, too, and I can’t think of any double-o words that allow me to do that smoothly.

I need some food..




Oo!  How about some moovie music, that I loooove?


Thanks to ThemeTunez for posting the James Bond theme on YooToob, to observant ones everywhere, and to YOO, no matter what your attitood or mood.
