Agatha Christie’s Ghost Knocks Her Books Off Shelves In Museum

The ghost of Agatha Christie may well be knocking her own books off of shelves in the Torquay Museum  in her hometown of Devon. Only her books have been targeted, and the ghost of a woman has even been caught on camera.

Macarena Of Time – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds

1linerwedsbadgewes

 

“Imagine Link doing the Macarena!”

That’s what I said after my mom misspoke the other day while visiting and asking to play a Mario video game for a little bit. She was trying to decide on which Super Mario Brothers game to play and said “Macarena of Time”, somehow getting Mario confused with the Legend of Zelda game “Ocarina of Time” (of which the hero of the game is named Link, for those of you not familiar with the famous Nintendo RPG game series, Legend of Zelda). When I heard what she said, I busted out laughing (I’m a big Legend of Zelda fan, FYI).

Wattpad Try-out

Well, I felt like trying something new on my day off from work, so I went and joined Wattpad to see how it works and what it might do for me. It is a social site for readers and writers, after all. It might not be bad. If any of you are on there, you can follow me. My user ID is @JeanneOwens and the link is https://www.wattpad.com/user/JeanneOwens

 

Oh, and I also sort of pledged to take part in a 30-day writing challenge they’re doing in collaboration with Harlequin. We’ll see how that turns out.

30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath)

via 30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath) | The Mind Unleashed.

This is an interesting article that I looked up at my mother’s request the other day. A lady at her church had mentioned being an empath to her and told her a little about it. My mother found it interesting, and similar to things she’s experienced, so she mentioned it to me and her belief that she might be an empath, and had me look it up.

As I was reading through the list of traits, she nodded her head and commented her agreement on just about each trait. I found myself agreeing with most of the traits, as well (at least half to 2/3 of them), such as: being a good listener; not much of a crowd person; a need for solitude; people coming to me with their problems; seeming shy and aloof; being creative and easily bored; daydreaming; loving nature and animals; liking adventure and travel; always looking for answers and the truth; having a hard time doing things I don’t enjoy; feeling the emotions of others and taking them on as my own; an interest in the metaphysical and supernatural. There are other traits I somewhat related to, also. And I also noticed that some of the traits seemed to echo traits of an introvert. So now I wonder how much of my introverted nature might also be me being empathic.
