A Boy Named Sue #atozchallenge

A Boy Named Sue is one of the first songs I can remember. It launched a life-long love of Johnny Cash music. And that memory is wrapped up with my Mom, 8-tracks, and a green car. Now, my Mama is not a huge music person. This was great when growing up because we could put…

Buzzwords Suck

Buzzwords can be useful, but are often used just to confuse folks.

I like words. A lot. Probably more than the next guy. But I like my words to add clarity, not confusion. That's one of the reasons why I HATE buzzwords. I have to be careful here because not all buzzwords are bullshit. New stuff happens all the time. Sometimes we need a word or phrase…

Fear of Writing – The Typo and the Typo Pointer-Outer

Typos (and grammar concerns) terrify folks into paralysis when it comes to writing. What if I make a mistake? Use the wrong word? I don't know where the commas go. Semi-colons?!?!? OMFG, kill me. This fear keeps many folks who would otherwise be fantastic contributors to blogs, social media sites, and elsewhere from sharing insights…

Wood, Would, Chucks, and Woodchucks — Stream of Consciousness Saturday

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the "wood/would" prompt for today's Stream of Consciousness Saturday from Linda Hill. I've always wondered WTH that tongue twister means -- what is "chuck wood." When I was a kid, I…

Ha: Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Ha. That’s the prompt for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday from Linda G. Hill. At first, I sat here with my consciousness decidedly not streaming. Possibly that’s because I switched over from doing some work in an attempt to begin to catch up after being sick for the better part of 7 days. The…

This or That: Your Weapon of Choice #SoCS

  This has been annoying.   You Can Go With This, Or You Can Go With That Ever since I read the prompt for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday yesterday (“this or that”), I’ve had “You can go with this, or you can go with that,” sometimes accompanied by dance scenes, as an earworm. It’s…

Food – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (a bit late)

  Spooooooonnnnnn!!!!! And another Stream of Consciousness Saturday post begins. Quick rules: follow Linda Hill's prompt and write. This time, it was "food." Not sure why that was the first thing I thought of when it comes to food, other than that it’s an eating utensil and I love The Tick, and his righteous fight…

Sometimes, This Copier Thing Is Fun

Nearly a year ago when I joined Prospect Builder I remember asking myself, "Self, how the hell are we going to write about copiers for a few months, much less the next few years." Not even close to running out of things yet. Just finished and published this infographic for one of our clients last…

Goodnight, Chicory

I keep waiting for him to come jump on me and then I’ll grumble at him to stop kneading on me and then he’ll settle down and get hair all over me. But that’s never going to happen again. I’m still in shock. This morning, Chicory was having major trouble breathing, carrying over from late…
