Friday Funny


September 23 is doomsday for some. I'd not heard about this, but researching it led me to some very interesting reads, as well as a few inspirations for outer space novels!

"Whenever you find someone who is 100% sure the earth is going end on a certain date, ask them to sign over all of their possessions starting the day after." - LargeFarva

"#$%$!!! I just booked a Restaurant for the 24th! Suppose I'd better cancel!" - Timothy

"And this guy's vote counts the same as yours. Let that sink in for a minute." - L

"Knowing my luck it will hit just before the last 'Game of Thrones' episode is broadcast!" - Richard

"Well, I hope it's not until the afternoon because I have an appointment in the morning on that day to get my flu jab." - Dr. Redthumb

"So what about the Andromeda Galaxy moving toward the Milky Way at 250,000 mph. It's set to hit us in 4 billion years' time. Should we worry about that, too?" - Martin

"Yes, he's probably right about all that. Also, I heard when I was 6 years old that if every single human being on the earth spit at exactly the same time, there would be a huge flood." - Sylus

"In my country, 99% of people believe in the existence of aliens. Out a total population of 21 million, we have around 225 Aliens. All of them live in palatial mansions and have secret meetings, once a week, at a huge venue called the Parliament. Having made a lot of money over a five-year term, they revert to becoming humanoid again if they lose a race to retain their Alien qualities." - M.R. Sufi Dole

"I'm still betting on Dec 31. My calendar ends there, so someone must know something we don't." - Moe

"What if the eclipse everyone saw was actually Nibaru? Note the timing of changes of weather patterns and effects, earthquakes and even the timing of war by Red China, who has a super-secret 2000-year-old Ministry of Astrology. One could confirm this by a reversal of the direction the North Pole has been migrating to for so long. How amazing that Florida and the Caribbean Islands line up right along Hurricane Alley. Is that how they've been formed over the Millennia? Is the whole Climate Change beeswax just to prevent wide-spread panic?" - Rick A.

"I hope it does destroy the world on Sept. 23 because my mother-in-law is coming for a visit on the 29th." - Marie

"Does this mean I can skip my next two mortgage payments?" - Lawrence

"'the planet (along with a shower of other debris) will smash into Earth, killing much of the human race in October – except for government employees who will (of course) flee into underground bunkers.' - Impressive bunkers or a very small planet meaning Pluto might get reinstated... Woo!" - Nuitari

"There should be a BS tax. People have to pay in order to spew their garbage, and that money could be put toward proper science education." - Ted

"The world we were accustomed to ended years ago. Time flashed, and we entered an alternate universe where no one minds their own business and everyone is triggered and hurt by anything that happens they don't fully agree with." - Eric T.

"Better use those vacation days in the next few weeks." - Mike G.

"Not sure about ya'll, but I think this would be a great movie. Imagine the special effects! WOW! Could rival the Star Wars series." - NS

"I wanted to type something snarky and very troll-like, but the seriousness of this article wouldn't allow me to keep a straight face long enough to come up with something. So I just typed this and hit 'post' instead. And I just spit on my screen because, again, I cannot keep a straight face." - Brandon

"What critical government infrastructures are moving from their susceptible positions on the East Coast to the protected areas of Colorado? Are we talking pot seeds and grow lights?" - V

"What's the world coming to when you can't believe a conspiracy theory loony when they tell you something?" - Garry

"I'm still recovering from the last apocalypse! Do we have to have another one so soon? Oh, alright then, book me a ticket." - Delphi

"Me, I've survived the end of the world a dozen or more times. Like riding a bike, you never forget how." - Doug

"My name is Zorton. I was a space traveler dispatched from Pluto more than 2,500 years ago. My mission was to orbit earth and monitor human evolution. On my 10-year anniversary orbiting, a squadron of Uranian fighter crafts attacked my spaceship, causing severe damage to my steering mechanisms, causing my spacecraft to plummet into the Indian Ocean, where I began hiking under water for two months before reaching land. I currently am rebuilding my spacecraft and planning an escape this weekend back to Pluto. Have a nice day." - Mister

"I wish a death planet would destroy Yahoo."- Al


Note to Al: It already did. It's called Verizon.

Black in Scraps


I don't know why I kept thinking of this song while I was assembling leftovers into a teenage boy quilt for Christmas, but I did. So I played with the song title to create a quilt name.

This top has so many different leftovers. It started with a handful of Artisan Spirit layer cake squares formed into disappearing four-patch blocks in which I intentionally did different cuts. I separated the blocks with leftover gradient batik jelly roll strips that didn't go with the rainbow project I'd made with the rest of the strips. I bordered the blocks from leftover gray speckle I've had so long, I don't remember the project I initially made with it.


The resulting top wasn't quite big enough, so I added corners, a new method of enlarging a top for me. Fun and an extremely good way to use up lots more leftovers!


The gray camo corner is leftover from a pair of elephant ear pants I helped my adopted daughter make when she was 13 or 14. She's more than double that age now. Many moons ago!

The snake skin corner is leftover from a blouse I made when I was much younger. In my 20s, I think. Many, many moons ago.

So perhaps I should have been singing some Pink Floyd...


Linking up with Busy Hands Quilts, Crazy Mom Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

What kinds of things can you do with Hatch chiles?






Well, there's the obvious...


















But there's so much more!!!





You can make your own spicy yogurt.














The onion skins make good dye.


And you can plant the bottom of the onion to grow a new one! If you plant it in a pot, you can bring it in during winter and let it keep growing!
