So lately, I’ve been hearing these weird noises. I’ll be in my room, minding my own business, and then some strange kind of creepy UFO-sounding noise will come out of nowhere. It’s so eerie. It’s really bugged me.

I finally figured out its coming from my Amazon Echo and I don’t know why. I may have to toss that possessed bitch.

So I’ve seen 2 prompts today. Sitcom and Flexibility. So, I’ll combine the two. Over at the now-defunct daily prompt, which already seems eons ago and I’m totally over it, there was only one prompt. Now, they’re all over the place. That’s not really a bad thing. Restarting something, like prompts, can’t be easy. It takes flexibility. Getting 7 people to stay committed must be a somewhat arduous task.

There is a new Ragtag daily prompt page that was started. I heard through the grapevine that it will go live in a few days. If you don’t already do the newly-formed ragtag prompt, and you’re one of the 10s of people that follow me, then you can subscribe to it to get daily prompts.

This post really isn’t about letting the creative juices flow. It’s more for information. There are several people committed to making it work, so I hope it becomes a fruitful venture.

Yours Truly,

Picayune rhymes with doubloon. They’re both Spanish coins. Doubloons reminds me of that old Hardy Boys serial on the first Mickey Mouse Club; The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure. There were 19 episodes, I think.

I must admit, I liked the 70s Shaun Cassidy/Parker Stevenson Hardy Boys much better.

Picayune, in addition to being a small coin, also means petty, trivial, of little meaning. The Stratemeyer Syndicate that started the whole Hardy Boys thing was definitely not that.
