Zither, the #AtoZchallenge

“Zither,” Mawmaw said. Blank looks around the table. “That’s not a word.” “You’re just making that one up.” And a few other jeers from my Dad, me, and I think one of my cousins. A quick trip to Webster’s shut us all up. There it was, Zither. And Mawmaw scored a gazillion points. And it…

Yellow #AtoZchallenge

I could not think of anything for Y and suddenly “yellow” popped into my head and stuck there for the last 8 hours. I finally have a few minutes to do my second-to-last in the A to Z Challenge. Here’s Yellow; stream of consciousness style -- thought I did look up a few things around…

Xenophon, #AtoZchallenge

Xenophon’s Anabasis would make a great Hollywood movie – equally as enthralling as 300 and way better than the piece of shyte sequel. I read it once, all in one sitting, sitting in the library at Southern Miss in 1992(ish). I must’ve been doing some research around Thucydides for history or a poli-sci class to…

Very Varied, #SoCS and #AtoZchallenge

All I can say is, “Thank you VERY much.” Before I remembered to look for the prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday, I was flailing; struggling to find a “V” word. I already have words for X and Z and a few options swirling about for W and Y. But, V, V was killing me,…

Underdog! #AtoZchallenge

Speed of Lightning Power* of Thunder Fighting all who Rob and plunder Underdog; UNDERDOG! Have no fear, Underdog is here! Amazing how memory works. I can’t remember my to-do list I wrote this morning without checking it throughout the day, but I song from a cheesy 1960s cartoon I used to watch when I was…

Social and Shakespeare, #AtoZchallenge

Social and Shakespeare, #AtoZchallenge

My career took – maybe not a U-turn, but a decidedly different direction – when I learned in December 2008 that: The print magazine, infonomics (nee inform, then E-DOC, then AIIM E-DOC Magazine, then infonomics) was being cut (not a huge shock given ad sales) That upon returning from meeting the future in-laws in England…

Rasta-Man, the #AtoZchallenge

Two reasons for this one, I love Three Little Birds and this has been a great excuse to listen to it over and over for a bit, along with the rest of Legend (scroll down, I embedded it. You’re welcome). Secondly, I’ve never actually looked up what the hell Rasta is. Beyond some hazy conception…

Queen(s), Queer, and the #AtoZchallenge

As seems to be the norm lately, this one will pull double-duty. Possibility of being offended, so, proceed with caution. I’ve known Queen, the band, about as long as I can remember listening to music. I remember Johnny Cash and “A Boy Named Sue” on 8-track in my Mom’s car. I remember Jim Croce and…

Peace and Pulp Fiction, #AtoZchallenge and #SoCS

Peace and Pulp Fiction? What’s they’s gots in common, you might ask? Nothing that I can really see, other than they both start with P and I decided to write a quick split column with both the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt (peace/piece) and one of my favorite movies. I couldn’t come up with anything to…

Oscar D. Boxer, #AtoZchallenge

This was originally titled an Ode to Oscar, but this isn’t really an ode. It’s more a paean, but without the lyrical quality. I looked up odes, but they’re very complicated with three varieties, some in verse, and I don’t have lyre to accompany this anyway. I could’ve waited, I guess, and gone with Paean…
