GiFing While We Work
I know I use GIFs. I'm the self proclaimed Queen of GIFs. My new favorite one is this one of King T'Challa and his sister, Shuri.
I've been greeting all friends and family members like this since watching Black Panther. Anyway, I did learn a new GIF trick this week. And that is how to create a GIF slide with moving GIFs.
Here's a GIF I made from images.
I'm a little annoyed that I cannot add these GIFs in this blog. But I did tweet it.

I found that the hardest part was thinking of the witty message that I wanted to go along with my GIF slideshow. It took way too long to think of something clever, witty and funny enough to be a GIF. It wasn't until I started scrolling through the DDAs did I get the inspiration. So Kevin Hart's images are my other go to GIFs and memes. I chose three of his images to depict how I felt when no DDA was posted. Below is the first of the three Giphy images.

And guess what, I learned how to do it!
I've got this GIF slide thing down to a science. I am so excited about this one! It was easy to do this time because I started off this blog talking about Black Panther. And Avengers Infinity Wars is coming out soon-- can't wait! Oh, I know I left out a few Avengers but I wanted to have the images match the words.
And I made a GIF slide with images and GIFs... I cheated. My inspiration was apples because Alan made applesauce. LOL
The minus Garfield assignment was pretty cool. I grew up on Garfield comics. I too, hate Mondays and I eat lasagna. So, I found it interesting that there is a thing where the comics are being looked at again without Garfield. Now, I must admit that I thought that I was going to have to do or make something. I was a little disappointed with this. I was also confused as to why there was no comic strip with today's date even though I keep pressing current. But I want to be completely honest and confess that I am mentally exhausted-- making witty GIF slides is exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time.
However, I did find interesting that the strip didn't lose much of it's meaning without Garfield. I was forced to notice Jon Arbuckle and how lonely he really was. All of his dialogue took place with a cat. Take the cat away and he has no other human contact. Sad. Still funny. But sad.
And now I can sign off knowing that I learned some new tech tricks. I feel like Shuri maybe I've got some Wakanda-like tricks up my sleeve after all!
