Friday Frags...On Saturday

So when you read this, you have to pretend it's Friday, because this post is for Friday Fragments and today is actually Saturday. I had a Friday Frag post pretty much written on Thursday night, but due to circumstances beyond my control...couldn't get it posted. So...let's just journey back in time and pretend it's Friday when you read this, k?

If Friday were a guy, I'd be kissing the hell out of it right now! Come to think of it, I'd kiss it no matter what it's gender. Cause I'm just so freakin glad its here!

ANYhoo, it's Friday Frag time and thanks to Unknown Mami for hosting, and here we go.

Frag #1
I didn't post a frag last week. I'm trying to remember why.....oh yeah. My niece was visiting from New Mexico and then my nephew came out too and between that and working everyday, I just couldn't squeeze it in. 

But I felt bad. I missed reading everyone's frags and plan to get caught up this weekend.

I almost couldn't post tonight, because I sat down at my computer and the darn thing wouldn't turn on.

Then I remembered I can blog from my iPhone, so I'm trying that now. Not sure if my comics or pic will show right, but lets just see.

And I just realized how terribly boring my first frag is. Are you still with me?

Frag #2
My sister texted me my horoscope the other day. Here it is:

August scope for u: You'll burn through your to do-lists with a fired-up Mars in your sign this month. Go easy around the 20th; a full moon could have people mistaking your dazzling productivity as just plain pushiness.

Dazzling productivity? Around my house, they call that nagging. My hubby and brother have even dubbed me The Red  Menace because I have a penchant for finding to-dos for everyone.

Did I already tell you this? I can't remember. If not, now you know. The Red Menace. That's me.

Frag #3
We're moving our office at work and I'm exhausted! We finish up the move tomorrow...I hope! 

Moving an office is just as bad as moving a house! It's a ton of work, you swear the next time you'll hire movers, and everyone is cranky. The good thing is that we're finally throwing away junk that's been sitting around for years. So it's a great time to scale down and declutter.

Frag #4
One of our dogs, Prince, just LOVES chasing tennis balls. And he always wants to play at bedtime or 6 AM.

Here he is, at 11:00 at night, with his ball, ready to play:

He's so persistent with trying to get Hubby to throw it for him, that he'll drop it on hubby's face while he's sleeping and wait for hubby to throw it. And if hubby doesn't throw, Prince will do that again...and again...and again....

So, of course I had to do a comic about that:
(Click on the little 4-arrow thingy in the lower right corner to see the whole thing. Click again to put it back.)

Frag #5
I'm really addicted to making comics right now. I have ideas for several comic series and if I had my way, I'd quit my job and make comics all day. But alas, that's just not practical. So I squeeze it in whenever I can.

The comic making site I use, Pixton, has a community that is much like the blogging community, although much younger. There's a few older wiser folks on there, like myself, but we're definitely outnumbered by the younger generation. But many of them are very talented young people.

So anyway, I made a comic about comic making and comic reading on Pixton. The names mentioned in the comic are names of other members on Pixton, just for frame of reference:

If you're interested in trying out Pixton, it's free. You can use this link and make a free account. If you do, my user name is LoriAnn, so let me know and I'll follow you!

So that's it for my Friday/Saturday frags. Hope everyone has a great weekend and a week filled with good fragments.

It is nice having company and staying off the computer. Our little girl Skye does the same thing. She loves her ball!

Good job on getting this post done via your phone!
Time to hide the tennis balls, though I suspect your dog would still manage to find one!
Good luck with that move..

I enjoy your sense of humor and look forward to future fragments. Since FF will be heading back to my blog this week, I thought I'd let you know that I publish the linky on Thursday nights at 9pm Central time--Link up then to increase your chances of visitors :)

And Prince...he's a doll!!! And just looking into his darling face, you gotta fall in love with him!!

Well this worked out just perfect because I'm reading it on a Friday, but a week late. I love your comics. I think you are really good.
