While I'm Busy...

Picture this:

A small study with natural light filtering through the blinds in the window. The light picks up particles in the air and makes them shimmer while a black and white cat sits on the window sill and regards the scene before him sardonically. Around the desk, books are piled up like a New York skyline. Some of them are face down and open marking an important page. Many pieces of paper with scribbled notes are scattered about the desk and around a laptop computer where fingers tappity tappity out something which hopefully makes sense. The only other noise is the occasional muttering coming from a blonde frazzled woman sitting in front of the laptop who is attached to the fingers. Her blonde hair is in a pony tail and she is wearing a black jumper and tracksuit bottoms with fluffy purple slippers. Tappity tap...delete delete delete...mutter...check notes...tappity tappity tap...

Yep, you guessed it, this is my worls at the moment! While I am engrossed in this ritual of study I thought you might enjoy watching the following clip. It's a 'Best of' of the penguins from the movie 'Madagascar'. I loved this film, it amused me alot. My favourite bit is when the penguins arrive in Antartica which had me laughing like a drain when I first saw it. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping by! :-)

Your desk sounds like mine at the moment!

I love the Madagascar penguins. My mom just bought my step daughter a bath robe with them on it for her birthday. I want one too!!!

I recognised the description of the frazzled blonde woman - that would be my girly.

Good luck, sweetie :-)

Good for you--sounds like you are working very hard on your essay. I'm sure the feline companionship helps, too.

I had forgotten how funny that movie was.
After allllll that effort to get to Antarctica they end up standing in the middle of a blizzard...you hear wind, scratching, foot shuffling... then the only comment made, "This sucks" LOL - cracks me up.

I can just picture you at your desk bobkat :)

Frazzled is the new... "all together". Or at least it seems so. Good luck.

I'm glad to hear that things are starting to calm and some closure seems to be starting.

Rico...form an away team!

I LOVE these waddlers. Our youngest son - 6 - is addicted to penguins because of this film. He sleeps with a stuffed penguin every night, clutching it tightly to ensure it doesn't slip off his bed and into the clutches of his happily awaiting dog.

Such a life we lead. Please know we're thinking of you as you press on to meet this deadline despite all that's happened.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Hope it's all going well, my dear....Be sure to stop now and again and "smell the roses"...lol!

I haven't seen the movie but I loved watching that clip. My favourite quotes:

"Don't give me excuses, give me results!"

"Just smile and wave boys, just smile and wave."

Goog luck with the studies.
