Response to “Blogging From the Grave”

For all of you who read my post, “Blogging from the Grave,” here’s a response that should have gone into the comments. It’s a must-read.

The Good, Bad and Ludicrous

Yes – I love the mind and writings of Linda G. Hill – and I started to leave a simple comment to her post, “Blogging from the Grave” –

Truly! I Did Attempt Simple…Short….Comment…..Honest!

Alas, the writing of said comment soon morphed into such size, I could only feel good about myself if I blogged on my own site and didn’t Hijack her Comment area with my own little dysfunctions….

Fair is, After All, Fair….

Someday – I shall learn how to write a comment without compiling an entire blog post  –

Until then, I want my Gold Star for realizing I was waxing eloquent in the space of another and stopped myself prior to hitting the “Send” button for said comment – WHAT?!?

Really?!? There are no gold stars for writing your own posts instead of having a blog in the comments section of other blogs?

Fine…

G is for Glacial

Oooh, brrrr. Here’s a chilly subject. Appropriate considering we’re getting freezing rain here. Tiny little glaciers falling from the sky. The kind of weather that lifts your shoulders to your earlobes.

Speaking of cold shoulders, (what a segue, eh?) the first synonym in my thesaurus for glacial is antagonistic. Along those lines are also inimical (I absolutely cannot pronounce that word. Can you?) and unfriendly. This immediately brings trolls to my mind; the glacial denizens of the internet.

We’re all waiting to cross that bridge, aren’t we? If we haven’t already of course. That icy, slippery causeway to misery – commentary’s dip into a hostile Arctic abyss.

Or.

Just ignore them and they’ll go away.

The word, “glacial” also brings to mind my childhood and my favourite pasttime back then – figure skating. Although I practiced for eight years, I never did perfect the art of the axel. For those of you not too familiar, it’s a jump that involves taking off from a forward facing direction, spinning one and a half rotations (for a single axel) in the air and landing on the opposite foot facing the other direction. I simply didn’t have the guts to really give it 100% of my effort. I did enjoy coaching, though. Figure skating is one of those things that fits well into the adage, “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.”

What are you better at teaching than doing?

One-Liner Wednesday – Life is too short

too short

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Anyone who would like to try it out, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a ping back, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a ping back from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Make it either funny or inspirational.

Have fun!
