Z is for.... Zaxby's
Zee 1st thing I thought of for my Z is for... post for ABC Wednesday was using the character of Zsadist from the J. R. Ward vampire novel, but it has no photos of "Z" as he is often referered.
I have a cousin Zach. Zach was actually named after the character Dr. Zachary Smith of the "Lost in Space" tv fame. Thank goodness he is nothing like the character!
I had a favorite blouse that had a zebra collar and matching cuffs. The rest was hot pink silk. Silk is not a very sturdy material. It tends to split easily and come apart as this one did which is why I said had. I have photos of it somewhere taken on a birthday. I even bought a zebra frame to put the photo inside.
I began looking through the dictionary for z words. I knew I was being my usual zany self with my thoughts about this z post, showing my zeal and zest for life.
Now I could have began with the infamous line, "What's your sign?" from the 70's. My zodiac sign is Capricorn. What's your's?
Then I thought of zazzle.com where I have submitted some of my ideas and photographs. I need to do more to that.
Last Thursday we picked up supper from Zaxby's. I got a side of chicken zalad and spicey mushrooms. It was in the zone.
Speaking of Zaxby's, I have a funny story to tell... I had to pay a bill for Don after work after yet another Illy Nilly episode in the saga of "As the Prison Door Slams". I knew there was a Zaxby's nearby where I paid the bill. Acting like a spy, I pulled into a new eatery's parking lot across from Zaxby's, in an attempt to get close to Zaxby's sign. Not only was I going in the wrong way towards the drive-thru, I was seen by church friends. I was trying to turn around without being seen by them, but no such luck. They saw me so I waved. I backed on out and drove over into Zaxby's parking lot which I should have done in the beginning. I parked on the other side of a car out of the view of my friend's car. I got the above photo after the 3rd try. This was the best one. I liked the fact that the neon was begining to glow. As I was pulling out, I saw my friends were still sitting in their car! I knew they thought I was a loon and were probably wondering what I was doing. I am sure they will ask me about it at church tonight. I could never be a spy, a sneak, or a cheat because I'd get caught just like I did yesterday. Not that I would be one of those beings anyway.
Ironically I had more spicey mushrooms from Zaxby's today. So I guess my Z is for... is for Zaxby's.
I almost completely forgot about zentangles. Go to http://www.zentangle.com/ to see what they are. Even a 7 year old can do these. Some other excellent examples zentangles are at Janet's blog The Lavendar Loft. Go to http://lavendarloft.blogspot.com.
