What’s Swedish For Kaboom?

A little while back, I was Skyping with the lovely Ziva. For those of you who haven’t had the sheer pleasure of seeing Ziva, here’s a screen shot I took of her:


I know, right?

And I guess it would only be fair for me to post a screen shot of myself as well. Here you go:


This is exactly what I look like when we Skype.

So, were chatting. Here’s how it went:

me_avatarStuff about you… you’re so beautiful… more stuff about you… I love you, Mistress Ziva…

Ziva_avatar Yes, worship me, you want to please me, don’t you?

me_avatarI live to please you… stuff about you… sexy… gorgeous… love… handcuffs

Ziva_avatar Yes, that is exactly what I want…

me_avatar If I were there right now, I’d… hey! Is that a new couch?

Ziva_avatar Yes, it is – finally! We finally got our new couch. It’s huge!

me_avatarIt’s very pretty. Let me guess, Ikea?

Ziva_avatar Actually, no. We didn’t get it from Ikea.

me_avatar Wait, what?! Did you say NOT from Ikea?

Ziva_avatar Yes, that’s right. Sometimes, we don’t get our furniture from Ikea.

me_avatar I don’t even know what to say to that.

Ziva_avatar It’s true. And sometimes, we even get our meatballs from someplace else.

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who participated and also apologize for being the hostess with the leastest. Special thanks to CheesyMike who subbed for me, often at the last minute. I may not have had the time to say all I wanted to say on each of your posts or in reply to each of your comments, but please know that I did read every day and thoroughly enjoyed seeing your stories progress, your creativity stretch in new directions, and the camaraderie and support you so generously offered each other.

Thanks again,


It’s the last day blah blah your 30M2DoW blah blah tees designed by P.J. by CLICKING HERE. Blah blah something funny who cares it’s the last day.  

Welcome to the last freakin’ day of the Second Third Annual 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing. Today’s prompt was And Then My Brain Exploded and it was brought to you by the International Obfuscated C Code Contest Second Third Runner Up, CheesyMike!

  • You had me at “skyping”. That’s a euphemism, right?

  • Oh sure tease us with the what is surely a non-existent Ziva …

  • NathanaelV

    Haha, very interesting take on today’s prompt 😉

  • Oh my god, I had completely forgotten about that conversation. 😀 I could totally see your mind as it was blown to itty bitty pieces. It was awesome. And what we did on that couch afterwards was even more awesome.

  • Cadeaux

    ROFL – I remember about the Ikea meatballs! Whoa, Nelly! 🙂

  • Tami, I assure your that Ziva is quite real. If you recall, (and I’ll never forget) I shared a lovely embrace with her on my own non-IKEA couch! Every word Nicky says about her is absolutely true! She is the “be all”, the “end all” of women. It’s not enough for Ziva to be beautiful, sexy, charming, witty and all. She is also breathtakingly brilliant! And that photo does not do her justice!

  • Oh crap, maybe I’m just a figment of Nicky’s imagination.

  • You’re making me blush, Linda. I think some of your awesomeness must’ve rubbed off on me when we hugged, because you possess all of those qualities in spades.

  • I think the trick, Ziva, is that you are partly made up of stardust and magic!

  • ReformingGeek

    Ah hail the Mistress Ziva! I hope the explosive debris wasn’t too much to clean!

  • I would go to the other side for her… Or for you for that matter! Ha ha!

  • Woooot!!! Kudos and congrats on completing the writing challenge! Even though I didn’t participate very much, I truly loved every single one of your entries. I had a wonderful time reading your stories – even the scary ones!!

  • Thanks for once again hosting this awesome writing challenge. It has been fun, challenging, frustrating, enlightening and indeed stretched our creativity.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    Oh for god’s sake, will the three of you just get a room already?

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    Maybe you’re just a figment of everybody’s imagination. Especially NoName’s, apparently.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    Admit it, you packed those boxes and crossed to the other side of those tracks a long time ago, didn’t you?

  • Thank you, Nicky! I wish I could have done more but, whatever and I didn’t have time and blah blah blah other excusey stuff.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    I wish I’d said this.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    What Margaret said.

  • You are so green with envy Mr. Toomanymornings!

  • Nahhhh I just stood in between ha ha ha ha!!!!

  • Exactly what Margaret said. Hope things are going a bit better for you and yours.

  • You look so much cuter on Skype than I do. I would would have to refuse to talk to anyone on Skype that looks gorgeous…that would just be too cruel.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    More pinkish than green, but I get your point.

  • MalisaHargrove

    I get my meatballs in IKEA way down here in Texas. How can she not? Sorry about your exploding head, Nicky. That had to hurt. Now you know how the rest of us felt for 28 days. 😉 Seriously, you have successfully pushed me into writing again and I’m eternally grateful. I dread March though. I’m trying to dry out.

    Thanks for another year of hosting a great writing challenge, Nicky. Thanks to Mike as well. February 2014 nearly killed me for all sorts of reasons, so I’m just glad to put this month behind me. I continue to be impressed by the quality of the content that this group of writers can produce. If we end up doing this challenge next year, maybe I’ll do a better job of keeping up with all of you crazy folks.

  • I love the tee-shirt. Thanks to you and Mike for hosting another great writing challenge. I hope to participate next time.

    IKEA meatballs cause tongue splinters.
