Dear Plinky Prompt: Did You Die?

Is Plinky dead? I have tried to get prompts but I haven’t gotten any. When I try to use the search I get the oldest ones first and there is no way to see the new ones. I’m wondering… I asked the “support group” a question a few weeks back about using images that were recently advertised ( I was shocked but thrilled) and  ( I won’t mention any names) their reply was the weakest, most uncaring, and unresponsive answer I have ever read in my life. Basically it said, “Yeah, we said it but it’s not true, that’s the way it is, we aren’t trying to fix it and no effort is being made to fix it in the future, kind of like, ever.” That was my interpretation. This is the real answer in part “I’m afraid Plinky is not being actively developed — we don’t have any plans to make improvements other than fixing critical bugs to keep the service running. I know that is not the answer that you had wanted, though it is the transparent one. ” Actually, I prefer my answer. What exactly did this mean?

I started getting suspicious at that point. Since then, no prompts. I’m just saying it would have been nice to get the obituary. Did I miss it? Did anyone else get it? Gosh, was I the only one who didn’t get it? I’m not saying I can’t live without the prompts but they were fun (although not when they were repeating them for the fourth time in a short time period.) Hey, I could think of some prompts. How much are you going to pay me? I’m sure I could come up with better ones and more original ones than the ones you used.

Now, I fully admit, my computer is wonky, so it could be just me and that it’s just my  computer problem and Plinky Prompts are going to everyone else except me. Can one of my friends let me know? That is entirely possible.  Can someone at Plinky give me an update? It would be nice to get an email or some communication letting us know if you have dropped Plinky officially or if you are on a hiatus.

Sometimes we need a push and sometimes we need a break. What up?

Sincerely,

If I Could Be Two People

Seriously?

1) I would seriously consider asking the person that wrote this prompt, what on earth he/she was thinking?

2) Then I would ask his/ her boss the same question.

3) Then the boss and I would go to lunch together (their treat) and I would give them some really awesome prompts.

Which Two Songs Do YOU Hate?

 

MacArthur Park (song)

I was driving the cute Mazda smile car to pick up my daughter from Driver’s Education when my LEAST favorite song came on the radio. Hands down, MacArthur Park, sung by Donna Summer is a song I hate and it has the potential to make me crazy. “Someone left a cake out in the rain?” my response to that is “who cares?”and “what kind of moron would do that?”  It may have deep symbolic meaning,   (doubt it) it may be a poetic mystery ( doubt it even more) but the fact is: it turns me off. My idea of water torture? This song on repeat. I don’t know why I have such a strong negative reaction to this song but ever since I first heard it, it rubbed me the wrong way. I have to turn it off  immediately or turn the volume down very low so I don’t hear it. The other song that always gave me a headache was Minnie Ripperton’s “Loving You” with its high quotient of abnormal screeching. A bunch of honeybees swarming around me is a more relaxing sound than this song that goes through my head like an over-active buzz saw through brains and gushing blood. If I could erase two songs from the universe these would be the two that I would choose. What would YOU choose?

p.s. Hey Plinky Prompts, move aside, you’ve got nothing on me.
