On Top of the World

Is it already hump day? And the 6th? Wow, time is flying! We’re almost through the first week of January, y’all!

So remember yesterday when I mentioned Junko Tabei courtesy of blogger friend, Christopher at Freethinker’s Anonymous? Well, I Googled this amazing woman mountaineer to find out a little more about her. And you know how when you Google something, Google provides a list of what other people ask when they Google what you Googled?

Well, here’s what it said —

(Okay, that screen shot bites the big one!) Let me copy and paste what it says for you instead.)

Thank God it’s Wednesday, y’all!

  1. I might be able to help with the screenshot – I’m assuming you are using the printscreen key, correct? So once you have the screen shot, open Word or PowerPoint. Paste the screen shot then crop away all the extra stuff – from there you should be able to re-size the screenshot. Then save the document as a JPG. Open the JPG with your picture software that is already installed on your computer (I prefer Paint or Paint 3D). Now crop away all the white space, save the document as a JPG. Then you can upload the picture to your site. It sounds like a lot but it really isn’t. That should give you a cleaner screen shot.

    Also? Like you, I will never have to decide whether or not I want my body removed from a mountain.

    • Gigi,
      Thanks bunches for the info about screen shots. I’m adding that to my to do list and will figure this out before the end of the day! As to the mountain question, I’m intrigued by your mysterious answer. Are you asthmatic, too? Are you afraid of heights? Is it something else? My inquiring mind wants to know! 🙂 Mona

  2. If my body somehow ended up on top of Mount Everest, please leave my body in the middle of the sidewalk… pathway, whatever. Maybe in front of a hot chocolate stop where the tourists will be. I want everyone to have to step over me. Maybe I could have one of those existential headstones like the Puritans would have: “Remember friends as you pass by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now so you will be, prepare for death and follow me.”
    In this way I can be sure my death will make everybody as uncomfortable as possible.

  3. Ideally my mortal remains will eventually be put in a place where they won’t bother anyone. I’m unlikely to end up on Mount Everest for a variety of reasons, but what I’d really like it to be fired into space–to make the final journey, you might say. And that combined with The Carpenters means I now have “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft” stuck in my head.

    • Christopher,
      There are definitely worse things to have stuck in your head! So do you think Elon Musk is going to be able to provide the services you ask for your final journey? I bet that’s expensive. Also, I just found out this morning that Musk is now the richest man on Earth. I wonder if that makes him the richest in the universe as well? Have a great weekend, my friend! Mona
