Getting some words written.

Today was the deadline for the papers for next week's "Bloggership" conference. Here's a list of the words in my essay least likely to appear in any of the other essays: oblivion, lollipop, Sopranos, bloxxing, psychotic, whore, squishy, gooey, strumpet's, ankle, fairy.

UPDATE: The papers will be posted here. Some are up already.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Mine's up.

I read the last two words as "ankle fairy" at first.

Ankle Fairy: An extremely focused same-sex fetish.

I had a great grade for my various english classes, when they all (4 of them) required creative writing excercises.

How is BLOGGING, about a thing that you personaly feel, NOT equivalent to the same sort of editorial dictatorship of "creative writing?"

Why did I get a good grade on an assignment dictated by the "associate proffessor editor" while the PERSON, ie, you, aren't considered "valid intellectual arguments" considered, at least within your blog, as an intellectual/scholarly endeavour?

That doesn't make sense, truth is, were I to run for office, I would be reminded of everytime I said "retarded" But You, madame Anne, are thoughtful, and honest, That is LESS scholarly than my fiction in my first year of college?

What crap.

Palladian said...

Wow, half of those words form a coherent descriptive phrase:

Squishy, gooey strumpet's ankle fairy.

A good name for a band:

Oblivion Lollipop

See what happens when you give your students bad grades? They come here and yell at you!

chuck b. said...

Oblivion Lollipop would be a good name for a blog too.



This is the most unreadable confirmation word ever: tmmwvr.

or is it tmmvwr?

Something tells me yours is a hell of a good paper. Be sure to quote highlights here.
Looking at the list of presenters does make one curious. I mean, you would have to think that the presenters are not all going to agree on the issues behind blogging.

. . . on next week's Sopranos, Tony, suffers a health setback and once again on the edge of oblivion he has a psychotic vision of his squishy, gooey organs oozing through his wound while a whore from his past sucks on her strumpet's lollipop, meanwhile in New Hampshire while antiquing and a handsome bicyclist walks in with his bare shaved legs, Vito realizes that he's an Ankle Fairy.

(sorry Alan Kellogg, had to steal that)

(couldn't figure out a way to include bloxxing, too, my apologies for that failure)

Wickedpinto: You spelled my name wrong.

Patrick Martin said...

This is sort of on-topic... The Zits cartoon strip today is about blogging... Ann, have any of your kids said that to you? Or maybe, jeez, Mom, don't blog about THAT... ?

CB said...

Wow, half of those words form a coherent descriptive phrase

Are you talking about Ann's list or wickedpinto's comment?

Zing!

Ann: Thanks for linking to the papers. I've already read a couple, and it's been time well spent this morning.

I look forward to reading your as well.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

How come Instapundit is just teleconferencing? Did you have that option, too, but wanted to go to Boston in the springtime?

XWL: And with all that blogging about boxing up her University Heights home, it just came out "bloxxing."

"Strumpet's lollipop." Heh.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Love footnote 6!

Paglia might find it self-referential, no??

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Randy: At first, I was, like, aww-I dunno about this new style, but then you went with it. Girl, you worked it out!

Paula: You are such a breath of fresh air.

Simon: I thought it was a little safe. A little indulgent. But, still, the best performance tonight.

Sippican: Yes, so don't be looking for me to sing to the tune of "Pulling Mussels From the Shell" in the next podcast.

Awwwwww .... .

I thought my kid might be able to learn the new words while listening to you perform it.

Madtown Hookahs sure are swell.

Cool for cats. Now I'm truly tempted, even if Ann won't oblige.

Well, send me an MP3 clip and I might include it! Make it good, though.
