Moments of Stupidity

I spent the weekend grading poems so I could do progress reports today — then we went on a field trip I’d forgotten about. Proof I’d forgotten? Not only was my work not sufficently caught up, but I was wearing a skirt and heels. That is not proper field trip attire.

I plugged my cell phone into the charger last night. Left it plugged in all night long but it didn’t charge my phone. Although it might have, had I plugged the charger into the wall.

Pasta and red sauce — new white blouse:  I was going to eat the pasta, so the blouse had to go. I took it off — fumbled, and dropped it in the plate.

Not one of my better days.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Food on your blouse??? Unheard of for someone as tidy as you. I remember you telling me that they made those shout wipes at your urging as you were always spilling something on yourself. Guess that is why we got along so well. We both wore more of our lunch than ate it. In reality we really should have lost weight since we were never eating all that we got. Tee Hee!

    How is your weight loss plan working. I miss hearing your updates. I think all the weight you have lost has found its way to me here in Idaho.

  2. Angela — I am avoiding the scales. The weight was coming off so slow I was getting depressed. I will weigh again in a weel or so. Maybe. I know my clothes keep getting bigger, so something is happening.

  3. Nessa — first I saved the blouse, then I ate cold pasta. Luckily, I don’t do this regularly any more — but often enough that it doesn’t come as a surprise.

    Nessa — I guess I should confess my greatest moment of stupidity, then you’d know that I was struck by a pile of poetry that needed grading and I was in a rush to get it done. Stay tuned for more details.

  4. oh well… i’ve known days like that…

    i have set up an account with wordpress (not the blog yet) so i hope there will be no more problems with my comments.

  5. Silverneurotic — ha! I bet I inhabited this world long before you got her!

    Polona — I didn’t have to fish this comment from my spam folder.

  6. OMG – Last night I left my laptop downstairs because I can’t get off of it until two or three in the morning. But, I still had to write about the unsettling day I had, so I jotted down two pages on paper, intending to copy them into my blog today. Turning to your blog before beginning, I see that many of us were on “tilt” yesterday…………Things are looking up. Gotta go. Just got a call from Stockholm………….Judy

  7. Judy — sometimes I wake in the wee ridiculous hours of the morning and hear my computer whispering my name ….

    Morgan — had it been your shirt in the pasta bowl, I would have agreed.

  8. OY! I missed this one! I hope things are lookin’ up tomorrow! …. Field trip in high heels? OW!

  9. Melli — luckily it was to the middle school and the majority of the walking was to and from the buses. I gotta tell you though, climbing the bleachers was a less then lady-like chore.
