Fish Out of Water

Another mindless ramble... Sometimes I feel like a fish out of water, my mouth is always  opening and closing . But instead of gasping for air, words come out. I will run my mouth  about anything!!! Sometimes the most  shocking things things are spewed out  but most the time it is  just mindless chatter.  ( help I've started talking and I cannot stop!!) .Often I will feel   guilt  about all this chatter and wish so badly I could make some of the words come back. It amazes me when I meet so many people that are able to censor themselves and therefore in my mind  they are so " nice" . I am just not one for those people. For those  of you who know me  you can also  say "and she even chatters on about chattering" !!! I guess this post is just another one of those chattering moments, but instead of my voice I am using   cyber space to ramble .Well today I am off to teach an all day class. It is one of my favorite projects and the first time I am teaching it at the Frenzy Stamper , "Shelf Life".  Maybe I will bring  ear plugs for the students so they can tune me out when they need to. Tee HEE
 PS -I did the frog jump callenge  ( bellow post and link)  , correct  about 3 times  but for the life of me I do not know how it happened.  Try it it's silly fun!!!

Sometimes we just need to ramble, those words have to get out somehow! I hope you have a great class!

Oh he gave me a good chuckle first thing this morning. Just adore the grin and expression. Love the big guys too! Did I ever tell you I made folk art animals in the 70's? I still have a cow in a wooden pull cart with a twig and twine fence. Yes mouths do have a way of disconnecting from the ole brain and just partying away on their own without giving poor us a second thought... often at our expense.

That's why I adore you!!

Oh Julie, I do it all the time. My last ramble on my blog was about laundry, so you're not alone, my friend!! LOL

Tried that leap frog test. I would be put in the dunce corner if I were a Chinese child and as for eating, I'd starve too since I have never been able to balance those little chop sticks in between my fingers. Lord knows, I try every time I go to an Asian restaurant but end up either stabbing at my food, eating with my hands or just give it all up and ask for a fork!!

Have a great weekend.

xxoo,
Georgina

Hi Julie

It sounds as if you are ALIVE and you are alway thinking. Chattering allows the "back" of the mind to process whilst the "front" of your mind entertains your admiring public!

I love your chattering Julie..and your art! My son says the trouble with women is we talk while we think. So there.. we have to talk or we can't think! Men he tells me, think and then do. That can drive us mad too.

You have just described me to a T! When I'm nervous or in an awkward situation, I tend to blather on and on. Words, almost any words, just fall out of my mouth in an attempt to just to fill the air--I literally have to tell myself, "Stop. Saying. Words!"

Paula McNamee said...

Julie, I do the same thing. Your fish is so whimsical and fun- love the colors and size.

Ellie said...

I tend to do this, when it is to quite. Group silence is odd...I will ramble, chatter along! Just
keep smiling, you are not alone!!!

Oh, I would love to hear more about your class, when you have time...yes, please chatter about this, please~xXx

I loved your class! I wish I hadn't been so spaced out. I look forward to finishing my critters.

I didn't get our business computer back until last night, what a pain in the butt.

Can't wait to catch up with you and Lorrie in Portland!

xo Lorie

I, for one, love your chattering. Hope we can do some of it when I see you in Portland.
