Let Me 'Splain Something Lucy:
For those of you who are wondering why this blog is called Tossing It Out let me reexplain. I've told the story before so those who know please bear with me. I don't want any readers to think that my blog name has any naughty or disgusting connotations.
When I first named this blog I wanted a title that related to juggling (since I am a juggler). The idea of tossing objects in the air seemed like a good writing metaphor of juggling words to create some sort of order. "Tossing it out" also can mean expressing ideas for consideration which is what I do here. The phrase can have other meanings as well that don't have anything to do with tossing cookies, although I'm a big fan of cookies in the sense of baked goods.
So there you have it, and today I want to toss out a few ideas and this and that. Toss them out for your consideration that is.
Did You Get Your Fill of Alex Yet?
Just in case you've just crawled out of your bomb shelter or something there's this Adulation of Alex J. Cavanugh BlogFest going on right now. If you missed my post you can find it here and then you can find all the other entries here.
Are You Afraid?
Speaking of bomb shelters, do you realize the end is almost near? Just a week from this Friday, on December 21, it's all over folks. So say some. Personally I don't believe it. Do you think the predictions are correct? Did anyone say what time it's going to happen? I need to plan for that day. An end of the world could mess up my whole schedule.
But What About This Friday?
Since we may have no future we can look back at the past. Once again our A to Z Team mate D.L.Hammons is hosting what may or may not be the last Deja Vu BlogFest. This one's easy, bloggers. All you have to do is repost something you did over the past year. This is a great way to give those neglected posts another chance for an audience or to just post one of your favorites. Come on and join the fun! It's the easy way to post something on your blog.
Something else that happens every year is my wedding anniversary. My wife Betty and I will be celebrating our 15th year of marriage come this Thursday December 13th. Betty probably won't see it here on my blog, but I'll announce it for everyone else to see: Happy Anniversary to Lee and Betty!
To Be Continued...
This is one of those posts where I set out to say something and got totally sidetracked. Since most of us are not particularly fond of huge epic long posts I'll save what I was going to say for later. And believe me I've got plenty to say. But I seriously doubt that I can say it all before next Friday.
Do you sometimes wonder how some blogs got their names? What'd you think of that Alex Fest? Do you believe the end of the world prognostication? Do you have a blog post from 2012 that you'd like to share with us again? Oh, yeah, and how do you like your noodles?
