Oh shiznet

Damn, a contest to see if you write like the Rogue Queen, Sarah Palin?? It’s done, son!  I already write like her anyways, so it shouln’t be that hard.

A short snippet from her book:

“As the soles of my shoes hit the soft ground, I pushed past the tall cottonwood trees in a euphoric cadence, and meandered through willow branches that the moose munched on.”

Sounds very close to the prissy prose I share with y’all, and I’m scerred. Gosh darnit!

One more day until Turkey Day. I think there are a couple of undercard fights until the Main Event on Family Fight Night, but why I am being such a bitch-ass about it.  Well, I’ve let it go, son. I’m not so sure about my sparring partner.

Imagine if all family fights followed the pre-fight rituals of the real deal: Press Conferences, fake posturing during press junkets, cable television mini-docu-dramas, invective sound bites, and of course, the official weigh-in, wearing practically nothing. Dooot, sounds like fun, no?

“Oh yea, what about the time you changed the friggin’ channel when I was watching ‘Dancing with the Stars’??!”

“Bring it on, foo’, you can’t handle this!!” “Besides,  we all know the show is fixed”

“Just like yo’ face!!”

[Insert both camps from each side of the family trying to break up the main “fighters”]

Oh, well.  One can dream.

Gobble this

I never really fell into the Turkey Day drama-rama category with la familia, but alas, never say never. This year’s fete will be a mine field of slow boil tension…just hope no one sets it off, because I might go Queen Latifah and set it off…just sayin.

Ode to Scotch

Your tender sweetness, masked delicately in hues of rustic springs, grabs me. Tight and dear. Dear one, I cling to you. A fat kid loves chocolate cake. NO!  Fat kid knows no love like the simple and austere pull you have over me. A flame burning next to a puddle of kerosene: we will explode mixed as one. Ah yea. You dangerous, son.

Wow…that was fun.
