Texas Toast, it’s a common sight around here, “here” being Texas. So what’s this New York connection claiming to be “the original Texas Toast”? I may have unearthed a conspiracy, folks, the culinary equivalent of a chupacabra. Could it be mafia-related? Should I even be asking these questions? If any Texans out there know what’s up, please fill me in. Otherwise, I shall continue my investigation into this matter, and will report my findings in further blog posts, brave cub reporter that I am.
While cruising the NaBloPoMo blog roll, I realized that I probably should have put my blog in the Psychotic Ranting / Anonymous Foaming section, since there’s a lot of playful writing in that category, and it’s not as scary and wigged out as the heading leads you to believe. Here’s an example, which I found at Random Bloggicles.
Frankie Valli says that “grease” is The Word…
The Trashmen say that “bird” is The Word…
Which is it?! Two words can’t be “The Word” can they?
I’m not so sure that anyone has thought this through before.
“Grease” has groove and meaning… “Grease” is the time, is the place, is the motion… “Grease” is the way we are feeling…
But everybody’s talkin’ about the “bird…”
So which is the true word?
Some people say that The Bible is the true word. But I say they are insane… Really? The Bible is the word? That’s not possible! You know why? “The Bible” is a PHRASE! And a phrase is not a word!!! HAHAH!!!
So who is correct? Frankie Valli or The Trashmen?
Sadly, Random Bloggicles does not have a way to leave comments on her blog (that I can find, anyway), or to even email her. I don’t understand blogs that don’t allow comments, actually. To me, that would be my offline journal, something kept to myself. When I babble on my blog, it’s an open letter, a conversation waiting to happen – or not.
I notice fewer comments on people’s blogs this time around with NaBloPoMo, although it looks like plenty of people have signed up for it. This is the 4th year in a row that I’ve done it, and maybe the momentum will pick up, but it seems like people are sticking to their own blogs more than usual, instead of getting out there, mixing, mingling, and posting on other NaBloPoMo participants blogs as much as usual.
I hope I’m wrong, and that things will pick up as the month progresses!
