248. Alternative NEWS: World Book & Copyright Day/Day Two of Sassy’s Smoke Free Lungs

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
My Daily Random Question:
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Serious question today folks — if anyone knows please can you tell me? I have removed the name of the offending company just in case anyone complains…or worse, sues me.

This is my question:

What exactly does this paragraph below mean for a writer’s coyright?

Considering it is World Book and Copyright Day I think it’s quite an appropriate theme. Here it is, finally!

If you provide weblogs, also known as blogs, to XXX (each a “Blog”), you hereby grant to XXX a nonexclusive worldwide royalty-free license and right to use, market, license, publish, reproduce, copy, distribute, sublicense and display such Blog and to use excerpts thereof in any manner on the Web Site. You agree that third parties may link to your Blogs and use, in any manner or medium, excerpts from your Blogs.

Should this be something for a writer to worry about?

The Happiness Manifesto:
———–

My way of calming down after a hard day of being SASSY, and part of my 43things to do list, which I’m writing here instead.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Today I’m grateful for:

1. Gobstoppers! The bigger the better, like the one of I have in my mouth right now – it’s so large I have trouble keeping it in, so I am constantly playing with it, which is good. (ooh, er, Vicar) It keeps my hands, mouth and mind busy, as I desperately try and reduce the gobstopper to a more manageable size and breathe at the same time. The downside, (and isn’t there always a downside to my daily gratitude’s lately?) is that my mouth is aching it’s so stretched and my tongue is very, very sore! But they taste great and each layer has a different colour, so what am I complaining about, eh? Even though they are messy and make me look like I’m frothing at the mouth. Perhaps I should try chewing cocktail sticks, which at the moment sound quite appealing.

2. Coincidences again – received an email about an author named {Evangeline Anderson} so as an experiment I am calling this coincidence No.3 to see just how frequently this occurs and I promise you I am NOT making any of this up – why should I? I have better things to do with my time than creating spirit guides called Anderson, as it has been suggested to me on more than one occasion, but what is he* trying to tell me?

*It’s got to be a man, they are all a mystery, and what other species would expect me to read their mind?

3. I made it through day one of my no smoking torture! Yay! Even last night, with two smokers at our table, I kept my will strong and my cravings distracted. A most encouraging evening if I do say so myself, and I found another use for the ashtray, hence it’s new name, chewed-fingernail-tray.

4. Chocolate! But…Since I have given up the S word, I costing us a fortune in food! I don’t care about the weight, but what is most annoying is that my whole house is empty of anything I fancy to eat – except chocolate Easter Eggs my son owns, and therefore I am not allowed to touch! (The temptation is unbearable!) He’s already told me to “Leave” as if I were a dog, and feverishly counts them all, right down to the individual sweeties inside. If you think I’m being cruel just thinking about pinching one, I beg you to consider the added stress I am going through — the mental torture of being able to look, smell, and not touch! Was my son “off sick” when I taught him one of life’s valuable lessons about the principles of SHARING? Maybe it’s time to recap? One for you, one for me and one for Ron, my invisible friend. (LateRON).

5. . Having the sense to stop this nonsense and go to bed. (See I’m organised now I have given up my relaxing smoking time and I’m constantly looking for something else to do with my mouth). With no fingernails, gobstoppers, or open Easter Eggs left, my bed appears to be the safest place to hide. Night Night.

  1. Hi Sassy!!! Thanks for comments & sweet dreams! I think it is what they say in Texas or whatever “It don’t mean a thing” though my analytical thinking is anywhere but with me… will re-read tomorrow… Just follow the Sunday Scrib linky on my site @ the post or the sidebar – every Sunday there is a new post – every Sunday there is a new prompt and anyone can write even on a Monday or Tuesday just let them know in the comment part.. I did not invent it, I am just a scribe…. but it is a great idea!!! Wish it were mine …It is fine with no link back dear. I know you lost em… I link when I like to many… not an exchange, just if you feel like it!Ann Marie
