Verbal Spillage

V er b a l S p i l l a g e is when you have so much to say that you just can't keep it in any longer. It's word vomit. It's a technicolor yawn of nouns and pronouns, subjects and predicates, conditional tenses and subjective conjugations. You can't stop. It's got to come out. It might be on PAPER. It might be VOCALLY to a neighbor who just happens to get caught in the blast. Maybe its MICROSOFT WORD THEY OWN EVERYTHING. Whatever it is, you've got to get it out. Expect some V er b a l S p i l l a g e to come shortly. I found some from back in they day on Love and just wrote one about good and evil. Stay tuned. This is me making habits.

Scared Textless

You know, that moment during a conversation of text when you just don't know what to say? You're not sure if you will be misinterpreted or misconstrued, if the sarcasm will be mistaken for seriousness; if the joke will sound like too much affection... You finally decide that it's best just not to respond.

You're scared textless.

Thanks to Kelsey Hotmomma Williams for this one.

Linguistic Ju-Jitsu

My vernacular dexterity has evolved into an audacious and avant-guarde style of communication that is sure to be a new-age hit and a running theme of the Skyblog. I call it: Linguistic Ju-Jitsu. It's combing words in ways unheard of. It's creating new words that should exist but don't. It's the Excalibur of English. The Mjolnir's Hammer of grammar. The lightsaber of modern phraseology. It's Linguistic Ju-Jitsu. Learn it. Love it. Live it. Bruce Lee would be on board; you should be, too.

Me Making Habits

I know that I, like some of my friends, think thoughts and write things. It's just that every time I sit down to blog, I get this mental constapation that chocolate milk fails to cure.

So until that moment of blessed relief comes spraying onto my blog, this is me making habits. You were there. You were there when I was making blogging a habit. Welcome to habit forming. Feel free to indulge me.
