I’m on the train to Seattle and I feel $250 slipping out of my pocket. I want the Air Pods Pro. 😭

My scaredy-pig. Grace finds the world frightening. She is convinced that every time I approach her, I’m planning to eat her.

She’s also afraid she won’t get her share of all the treats. So she’s often frozen by competing instincts.

Microblogvember prompts:

For those living on the other side of the International Date Line: November 8: star

For those of us on this side: November 7: frightening

Sticks are for sharing with your BFF.

Today’s prompt unearthed a memory. One of my favorite numbers from the musical My Fair Lady is “On The Street Where You Live.”

The memory is bittersweet. It’s sung by a young man who is smitten with Eliza Doolittle, yet she still ends up with the curmudgeon Henry Higgins.

I’m loving all the Microblogvember posts. You all are quite the creative bunch!

The random word prompt for November 5 is street. Looking forward to reading your entries. 👀

It can be tough posting every day for Microblogvember. But I mean to try. #mbnov

Update We first announced Microblogvember on Nov. 1, and quite a few folks were caught be surprise and missed out. Sorry! It was a last minute inspiration.

We “extended” November. When you’ve posted at least once on 30 days by Dec. 6, you’ll earn the Microblogvember pin.

I never liked the word “fancy.” The way it sounds and its various meanings always make me cringe a tiny bit. I never use it in my writing. When the random word generator served it up as today’s Microblogvember prompt, I sighed. #mbnov

His Dark Materials starts on HBO on Monday. It looks quite good. I’m excited! Anyone else? (Thanks once again to @macgreg for introducing me to this trilogy many moons ago.)

The surgery leaves a mark. Straight down my knee, maybe six inches. I have some scar remedies, but I haven’t been too industrious in applying them. I like having such a clear reminder. (And I’m too old to think such imperfections detract from beauty.) #mbnov

REMINDER Microblogvember prompt for Saturday, Nov. 2: mark

  • If you missed a day or two, don’t give up. We’re adding some padding at the end to make up for the short notice.

  • Already Sunday? Nov. 3 is “fancy.”

Microblogvember prompt:

November 3: fancy

(It’s already Sunday in NZ, and we do have quite a few community members there, so I am releasing the new prompt while it’s still early for them.)
