Nuts – #AtoZchallenge

A quick one, because it’s been a nutty day and I’m mentally exhausted. I started thinking of this blog when I put some pecans (best nut in the world) on my lunchtime salad. A couple of random things about nuts that popped into my head while I grazed. Peanuts The peanut is a legume, which…

Mammon, M in the #AtoZchallenge

Ye cannot serve both God and mammon. – (Pick a Bible, King James mostly) [Warning: I ramble a bit in this one – more than usual.] I originally was going with “money” until 11 years of Catholic school kicked in and “Mammon” popped into my brain. I’ve always loved that word, mammon. Just sounds impressive,…

Lauren and Casey; Casey and Lauren #AtoZchallenge

Lauren and Casey. Casey and Lauren. Turdbirds Numbers One and Two (no idea, ask my Mama where she got that nomenclature from -- hmmm, might've been Meme). Even though they have singly and, sometimes, as a unit driven me slightly bonkers (and they've been threatened with defenestration), I can't imagine what my life would be…

Kitties, The #AtoZchallenge

Now, if push ever came to shove, I'm a dog person deep down. Choosing between either one isn't a choice, I'm going dog every time. However, I do love my kitties. Over the years, I've had some great and awful cats: Mittens, who died too young and chased three dogs away from my brother Kirk when…

Jam, Jelly, and the #AtoZchallenge

Jam has got to be one of those words that drive non-native speakers nuts. It’s an adjective, a noun, a verb, and an adverb (I’m pretty sure jammy is an adverb, I’m not looking it up). Something you eat. An impatient action. A situation. I’ve never been a huge fan of jam (the foodstuff). Or…

Inigo Montoya, Content Marketing, and the #AtoZchallenge

The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies. As Peter Faulk’s Grandpa says, it’s got it all: fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles . . . And what fan of the movie doesn’t utter the best revenge line of all now and then (Preferably said with a horrible Spanish…

Half-Assed (#AtoZchallenge)

Love this word, though the real words for half-assed are almost as good as the fun one: desultory, offhand, perfunctory, careless, superficial, half-baked, haphazard, slapdash, and sloppy. I originally was going to go with “help” as my “H-word,” but this one’s more fun. Plus, essentially all I had to say about help was “If you…

Gettysburg – One of My Favorite Places (#AtoZchallenge)

My love affair with the Civil War began with a question to my Meme. I must’ve been 7 or 8. I can’t remember the exact question, but I remember Meme and Pawpan were sitting in their respective chairs in the living room when I asked. She got up and pulled the “C” (I think it…

F and My Favorite Word (#AtoZchallenge)

Anyone who knows me probably has a good guess as to what this is. It’s the most versatile word in the English language. Noun. Verb. Adverb. Insult. Exclamation. Adjective. Exultation. Use it any number of ways. Note: beyond the line, NSFW. I thought about going in a different direction: faith (with a nod to George…

E and the Pursuit of Everything (#AtoZchallenge)

You can have it all. Get everything you can. You deserve the best of everything. I want it all.* Really, who doesn’t want it all? But what’s all. And what’s everything? When I first started thinking about this post earlier today, it was a screed against consumerism and our throw away culture. But, meh, we…
