Life in the fast lane--where's the on ramp?

Well, at least nobody screamed "You Lie!"

in the middle of President Obama's speech. I was glad to hear he's calling for meetings with his own party and the loyal opposition. I think he was right about the need for our representatives in DC to stop playing politics and get down to solving problems. I think he was right that there's been a... Sign in to see full entry.

Photo of a big old gator with a golf club in it's teeth...

For you sports fans, it was a putter. Apparently it's habitat is the sand trap. And this gator, with a typical toothy gator grin and not a crocodile tear to be seen, seemed uniquely satisfied with his lot in life. Can we assume the world's best golfer, who may or may not be rehabbed, is now gater... Sign in to see full entry.

One man's meat is another man's poison...

Or something like that. Anyway, I got an "inspirational" greeting from my sis a while ago. Lovely illustration, a leather-bound book, a candle, butterflies, ornately decorated with gold ink, beautiful script. Something to the effect that it's a prayer for the cure and pass it on. There was a... Sign in to see full entry.

Vow of Celibacy... (Hah!)

The ladies of The View this morning were discussing Oprah's interview of Sarah and Bristol about Mrs. Palin's upcoming newscaster job on Fox. Really, I shouldn't even mention all this. Nonetheless, the goddess of daytime TV expressed some doubt as to the younger Palin woman's ability to... Sign in to see full entry.

P.S. to the Kermit Thing

Great comments, my friends, on yesterday's blog. I'm copying them to my file where I can read them now and then... I was joking yesterday. Kidding myself by admitting envy that Chuck sold his "Dragon Dreams" to a publisher. I Googled that publisher -- Black Rose Writing -- and it looks like a real... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, color me green and call me Kermit!

That's the color of envy, right? I've opened my mouth to critique this guy's writing at several meetings of the writers' group, and certain others have said he was just a show-off, looking for praise and not taking any of our advice to improve the quality of his writing. His paragraphs were full of... Sign in to see full entry.

I found a poem, maybe I already posted it, but it feels right, now:

THEME IN A MINOR KEY Musicians of Ireland and Argentina can do wonders with the minor keys from heart music of nostalgic memory to the wingbeats of a hawk thundering in that last bright second before pain becomes oblivion. plh 2009 Sign in to see full entry.

So long, Conan... and a programming idea

I intended to stay up and watch the final episode of the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien as host. Since the big dust-up began, the three shows have all become interesting -- like an inter-network reality program where the participants plot against one another badmouth one another. But I fell asleep.... Sign in to see full entry.

Update on the new guy in the writing group...

It went well last night. As usual this guy -- A -- was there 20 minutes ahead of time, waiting. We chatted for a while about writing in general. I mentioned that I had emailed a response & he didn't seem to have seen that. So all right. Three others of our group showed up, and since we'd all been... Sign in to see full entry.

There's this guy, fairly new to the writer's group

who used to teach writing somewhere. Since he's never gonna read this, let me be brutally honest. He should stop kidding himself. First, he comes off as a patronizing, superior, voice-of-authority figure. He's the kind of hollow man the kids see through on the first day of school. You know during... Sign in to see full entry.
