New Year Inspiration

Need writing inspiration for the new year? Consider this: Today, January 2nd is Run it up the Flagpole and See if Anyone Salutes Day. Just remember to keep it brief.

January 2nd: Keep it brief.

For those of you with a food inclination, the month of January is National Soup Month and National Oatmeal Month. Now, I have never seen nor tasted an Oatmeal soup, but who knows, 2016 could be the year.

January is also National Bath month. I hope that doesn’t mean you are only supposed to take only one this month. If so, some people might be too ripe too soon for me to have the stomach to eat anything, let alone Oatmeal Soup.

It is also National Braille Literacy Month. If you can’t read Braille, does that mean you suffer from tactile dysfunction? Does Cialis have a pill for that?

Writing a novel…

Writing a novel is …




And an Act of Defiance.

That’s why so many feel they can do it, and why so few do it successfully.

Unwise wit: Pain of a different sort

Wise author Paul Coelho writes: Contrary to glasses and windows, a broken heart remains intact.

Unwise wit responds: That’s because it’s a pain of a different sort.

The window pain

The window pain ... in The Twilight Zone.

Just a thought

Too many politicians, in an attempt to catch fire in the voters’ imagination, do nothing but stoke the fires of the voters’ fears. –from the blog editor

The misunderstood PPE gargles

The misunderstood PPE gargles
Are related to the ancient fargles.
They live in a land
Of neither rock nor sand,
But they fit over eyes like sparkles.

These oddly named PPE gargles
Can only be worn by gargoyles.
When they sit on the edge
Of a building or ledge
The gargles give their eyes stargles.

These stargles come out in the night
When there is no moon or no light.
And only the gargoyles can see
With their gargles PPE
All the wonders and terrible frights.

Fargles were gargles of a time
When the gargoyles lived in the brine.
And all they could see
Without the fargles that be
Was the salt, the sea, and the grime.

Gargoyle with his PPE gargles

Gargoyle with his PPE gargles

Now armed with their PPE gargles
Gargoyles with stare at their stargles
They will sit on their ledge
Whole worlds in their heads.
And nary burp, nor chirp, nor hargle.

Quote of the day — programming

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
