SOC Sunday - No Theme, Just a Free Write
Today's Stream of Consciousness Sunday is themeless, so free-write on any subject for five minutes (no editing) to link up with Jana's Thinking Place.
8:24 In preparation for my Jeopardy! tryout in early September, I read about American history last night. I think the Portuguese got into my dreams a little bit. The book I read confirmed what I already believed - that Portugal was the nation that actually instigated the slave trade, even though Spain and England quickly piled on.
8:26 My head is so filled with facts that I feel like my creativity been's pushed to the side lately. I did complete an essay yesterday.
Thanks to my studies, I can tell you that Michel de Montaigne is the individual who popularized the essay as an art form. There's a shout-out to de Montaigne in "Bitches in Bookshops."
8:28 My husband is making me laugh. I'm so grateful for him and his sense of humor. I was pretty sad yesterday, thanks to a combination of hormones and the ongoing drama with my brother.
8:29 Ugh - don't get me started on the drama with my brother. I will say this, though: according to the Geek Zodiac, my nieces are Spy and Ninja. These zodiac signs fit them perfectly.
I got Pirate - but I don't wanna be a pirate! I like the ocean and rum, but I detest thieves.
