Poison Poinsettia

I confess: I’ve killed again.  <sigh>  I’m already a serial killer, somebody stop me before I become a mass murderer!  (I’m looking at you, dust bunnies.)

This time it wasn’t by dismemberment, (cow), or by smashing it to smithereens, ( elephant), burying it alive, (cat), or shooting it down, (butterflies).  [Poor things, they were considered so insignificant, they didn’t even rate their own post.  My hard heartedness has no bounds.  Do I even have a conscience??]

No, this time it was by starvation.  {I like to vary my methods to keep the thrill of killing fresh.  Nothing worse than a bored killer on the loose.}

Anyhoo, the poor poinsettia plant on the porch, FL room if you must, got it in the neck.   I just totally ignored it, every time I went in and out of the house.   Even though someone, Sweet Friend perhaps, suggested it could do with a drink of water.   Cruelly, I refused.   Even though I could hear faint cries of “Water, please, water!”   As I continued to ignore them, they grew fainter, and more faint.

I did however, stop PP from playing with the leaves.  Besides the fact that they are poisonous, there does need to be some kinda respect for the dead.

Poor poisoned Poinsettia, peace out.

Vacuous Video

I’m going to try something new today.  Uploading a video.  I’m very nervous, both to try it, and for y’all to hear my voice!

Oh, yeah, and to see my bedroom in real time!

Okay, here goes nothing.

And nothing is exactly what went.   (Don’t ya hate it when that happens??)

Well, alrightey then!  When I went to my files, I didn’t have a video!  I could have sworn I uploaded it, all my pix are there.   Time to troubleshoot.  Oh, Sweet Fri-end!

This is hysterical.  When I went to Wikimediacommons, to look up a “loading video icon”, this is what they gave me:

how to export pro x project

Oh yeah, that’s what I asked for all right!  LOL  smh

Ok, thanks to Sweet Friend’s help, I think we got it now.

Here’s hoping!

Nope, WP doesn’t support VLC, whatever that is.

So, onwards and upwards to plan B, whatever that is.

Now, I gotta go home and take still shots, except DH already straightened up all the mess so I could go to bed last night.

Whatever is a slogger to do when her beautifully messed up photo shoot location, is now NOT a mess????

Write a post about TRYING to upload a video, apparently.

Better luck tomorrow!

At least I can stop worrying that I sound funny on video!
