Thursday Thirteen

1. Maybe I have done so many Thursday Thirteens that I have run out of ideas.

2. After all, I have done 550 of them.

3. Yet, I continue to write them and try to come up with something. Anything!

4. I do not put up pictures from the Internet because I am concerned about copyright. I know it is probably not an issue, but with my luck, if someone is going to be called out for a copyright violation, it would be me.

5. Stretching my brain to come up with 13 things on a Thursday is probably a good mental health exercise, anyway.

6. Sometimes in these things, I put hidden messages. I forget they are there, though.

7. Under the circumstances, I don't expect people to actually find those messages. Besides, who would think to look?

8. Nobody. Of course, now someone will look, if these have read this through.

9. Some of the Thursday Thirteen players put up really cool word associations, or pictures that make me laugh, or play brain games.

10. Having to think about these things sometimes feels burdensome, but I always do it anyway.

11. Instant Thursday Thirteens rarely happen to me. I have to think about them. Or in today's case, think about thinking about them.

12. Not missing a Thursday is like a badge of honor. I haven't played the longest - that title belongs to Colleen - but I think I've played the second-longest.

13. Even so, some days it is simply impossible to come up with something that makes sense. Does this make sense?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 551st time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday. Or so sayth the Blogger counter, anyway.


  1. well, I enjoyed THIS 13, even though I spent considerable time searching for hidden messages. PLEEEEZE tell me there's no hidden message so that I can move on with my day...

  2. this a subliminal hint that I need to start sending you ideas for Thursday Thirteens? I have several if you need them!

  3. I tried but didn't find any hidden message. I like the flow and your last question. I just reflect on the week and sometimes reuse lines from my many past TTs.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
