Perfect is as Perfect does

I'm back to the purple text.  I wonder if there's some significance to my changing text colours randomly?

Yesterday, I had a surreal experience.  Actually, friends often tell me that my experiences are surreal, but I'm hoping that reflects more on their lifestyle than mine.

My experience was this:  After doing all the things I make myself do in the morning before I sit down with coffee and a book, I grabbed a book I'd picked up from our Share-it library in the Fitness Room of our building.  No, that is not surreal.  I have fewer books than I used to have, and enjoy taking down books that I've finished or finished with, so that I can righteously take a book someone has left there.  I sat down with my coffee and the paperback, and when I finished the page I was on, I tried to click the bottom corner to turn the page.  I didn't know whether to laugh or click again.

I thought it might be a good idea to see if "surreal" was really the descriptor I wanted to use.  Found this: surreal:  having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream, unreal.

 I thought this image was an interesting if dramatic addition to the surreality.


  1. My mom started doing the same thing, although I didn't call it surreal, I called it sacrilegious.

  2. I did s similar thing recently on a screen that wasn't a touch screen. It may have been a TV. I can't remember, I have serious senility going on lately! Maybe it was a magazine. Anyway, you're not alone!!

  3. HA! You made me laugh! It's not easy reading both e-books and paper ones. MY gosh! Life can be so confusing!!

  4. Funny! I don't read many e-books at all so I haven't done that but probably something else, I get easily distracted!

  5. Well ... I sometimes try to open random doors -- front door, store doors etc -- with my car clicker thingamabobie.
