Routes, Roots, and Stream of Consciousness Saturday #socs

What route are you taking to get to the root of the problem? Taking a hand (fingers?) at this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda Hill, which is: Route/Root, use either/both however the hell you want. Route is one of those funny words that I will sometimes pronounce “rowt” and sometimes as “root.”…

Ring A Ding Ding – SoCS

Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday word is: Ring. As always, kudos to Linda Hill for the prompt.  My first two thoughts on this were obvious ones – marriage and phone calls (in the future, will actual phone conversations between two people lead to marriage or will it all be texting, Facebook likes, and the occasional…

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,…

Peace and Pulp Fiction, #AtoZchallenge and #SoCS

I couldn’t come up with anything to…

Defenestrated: Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is to write using a word beginning with “de” and, for bonus points (and who doesn’t love bonus points), that also ends in “ed.” Disregarding for this post that because of all of the boner commercials on TV, when I see “ed” I immediately think “erectile dysfunction” (good job…

SoCS: Grease, Tipsy Toddlers, and Semi-Bad Parenting

Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda Hill’s blog this week is “Most/Least.” Isn’t that the Most? To say the least. No idea why that quote popped into my head when I read yesterday’s prompt. Other than that Grease is one of my favorite movies – and full of some pretty good quotes. “I’m not…

SoCS: Excuses?! We Don’t Need No Stinking Excuses!

My stream of consciousness post from yesterday as I was traveling from Baltimore to England and was barely conscious yesterday. As always, props to Linda Hill for the prompt. Excuses are like assholes – they all stink and everyone’s got one. Words of wisdom from my high school football coach. And, was it just our…
