Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trick.” Use it any way you’d like.
I learned 2 new tricks on the computer this week!
One I discovered yesterday called .https://www.faceinhole.com/ Pages and pages of faces to put your face into. A friend posted a photo of herself as a sexy witch but she is young and beautiful and can get away with it. And I get tired of people putting themselves out there as so much better looking than they really are. What’s the point? Hope they never see you again? I will gladly show my photo at the end, sans eyebrows which was necessary for the photo. After the official SoCS photo because I don’t want to see me in the reader.
The other trick I learned was screen-sharing on Zoom! I was reading 10 definitions out loud in my Zoom Balderdash game, twice sometimes 3 times.
I got a game going with my group I volunteer for. The program director collected the definitions and screen-shared them; reading them out only once and letting everyone read them. So much better! I immediately went to copy and paste all my definitions for that night onto a Word document and and friend walked me through screen-sharing.
The only downside of this was that my cursive was getting so much better writing them all out.
Another trick I will mention is a Canadian show ‘Trickster’ on CBC.
So many cultures have The Trickster. Not evil but mischievous which is still pretty darn scary. Nobody wants a mischievous spirit playing with their head.
I just realized I have been spelling and therefore pronouncing mischievous wrong all my life: I have been saying mischevious. Hmm. That would have been good for last week’s post about bad spelling.
Anyway, Trickster, on CBC. https://www.cbc.ca/trickster/ Its really good!
I’ll go back and finish off my stream of consciousness by going to get some links which is bending the rules but a link is really a neat trick.
And then I’m going back to ‘face in the hole’ to make one for my grandnephew. Maybe the whole family. What a fun trick!
