Sycophants and Skepticism

Blogging 3

I promise: I am not gonna make my blog be a blog about blogging because that’s just an annoying waste of everybody’s time. Like songs about the band. Or a book about writing the book. Or talking about talking. There might be a time for each of those things, but who are you – Marshall McLuhan?

Yeah, I’ve only been doing this for about three weeks now, so maybe I haven’t learned all the etiquette and protocol the Established Bloggers think everybody should follow if they want to be part of the Blogging Community. Hey, you know what?

N is for Need

You’ll like this. I hear you’ll like the book, too. Even if you’re not usually a murder mystery fan.

Number 14 in The A to Z of the Writer’s Affliction, part of the A to Z blogging challenge.

Now, we all know that writers need to write, but do readers need to read? Or rather, if the number of books available to them was a fraction of what it is, would their need still be satisfied? The answer is surely yes. So do they need One Green Bottle by Curtis Bausse? The answer is no. Hence my own need for an advert…

3 Day Quote Challenge, Day 3

Badges, I don’t need no stinkin’ badges!

One last time, thanks to Sue Ranscht who brings you stories from a youth she’s probably too old to remember in Space, Time, and Raspberries.

My theme is Unfortunate Quotes that Outlive Us. I, of course plan to have only fortunate quotes outlive me, so if somebody in the future attributes an unfortunate quote to me, you’ll know it’s a lie. The attribution. Not the quote; somebody probably really said the quote – just not me.

“I remember landing under sniper fire” Hillary Clinton. Suuuuure you do.
New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton
Liar, liar, pants on fire. Feeling the Bern.

And as a Last Day Bonus:

“I say a lot of things — millions of words a day — so if I [lied], that was just a misstatement.” Hillary Clinton, bigger liar than Bill.
Hillary 4
Yeah, this is who America wants for POTUS.

So there you have it. If your state’s primary is coming up, be sure to vote. Vote for Bernie Sanders — the other choices are scarier than Zombies.

I’m still playing because Sue Ranscht, author of Space, Time, and Raspberries, is apparently my biggest fan. It’s cool to have a rabid loyal fan, and I think her almost brilliant writing is kinda funny, too. So, thanks, Sue.

Queasy

Maple Slurpee Slorpee

“UURRRRRP!” My unhappy gut.

Not what I’d hoped.

I need to get some fruit flavored syrup before I try that again. Not that it was bad, just more breakfasty than refreshing.

Who am I kidding? It was BAD. The sugar overload alone was enough to clog the veins of a healthy rhino. Yeah, I won’t be trying that again.

Oh well, unlive and learn. On second thought, there’s nothing wrong with breakfasty. I wonder if they make bacon flavored syrup. Hell, maybe regular old bacon fat would work. Why didn’t I think of that before? It might even help solidify the brain juice.

But not till my stomach stops turning.
