A Meat and Two Sides, Please

Since I'm lazy and can't think of posts on my own, I've stolen another writing prompt: "Side of the Road".   I can't resist saying something about this fascinating place.

Roadkill is on the side of the road.  Well, it's actually in the middle and splattered all over the road.  Barf. The vultures feast on armadillo, possum, squirrel, coyote, cow (OK, not too often), cute little bunnies, and unfortunately, the occasional domestic pet.  Sigh.

Please don't tell Cat about the last one.  He does not understand that is the primary reason he is NOT ALLOWED to go outside.  His narrow mind, the size of an English pea, sees things to chase, kill, and eat.  My broader mind, the size of a snow pea, sees distracted drivers and hungry bobcats and coyotes.  Gulp!

I pondered about the oddest thing I've seen on the side of the road.  Hum.....underwear.  Ugh.  Oh yeah.  A funny-looking balloon.


Oh.  Evil Twin tells me that was a used condom.


The 30-day challenge that provided me with a few prompts is now over.  Oh my.  Where will I go for ideas?  I noticed that fellow blogger, Lauren, jumped in the middle of the challenge and with a burst of energy made in through the month with some great posts.  Check out some of her hilarious offerings at

No Need for Pest Control Around Here

Oh, wait!  Hey Evil Twin, wait for ME!  

What IS it, Oreo?

You guys are writing about creepy-crawlies.  I want to join in.

Oreo, that was yesterday's topic.


I'm an expert on arachnoids.

It's arachnids, Oreo.  Just call them spiders, 'K?

Anyway, they are fun.  I like to chase them and lick them.  When they stop moving, I swallow them.

 GINORMOUS garden spider might eat Oreo

Ok, Oreo, that's enough.  Reffie doesn't like it when you kill things.  On second thought, just keep on talking.  I like watching Reffie turn green.


Whoa!  Good job, Oreo.  What kind of critter was that?




Spiders was the topic of the day for 6/5/12.  Check my sidebar for the latest topics and writers participating in the month-long meme.  They are a group of talented folks!

This Geek's a Cheesy Thief!

Oh hooray!  I've stolen a blog topic.  Some folks are writing about cheese.  It's the first day of one of those insane month-log memes with set topics.  But, there are no rules and I like that.  Oreo Cat likes it, too, as he rarely follows any rules. 

I eat cheese occasionally.  Yum.

I cut the cheese occasionally.  Hum...

Yes, I said that outloud.

I like a little whine and wine with my cheese.  Burp.

Too much cheese will make one shit bricks.  Oops.

Yes, I used the word "shit" in a sentence.

Evil Twin smiled.  Oreo Cat looked at me funny and went to his litter box.  He came back broken-hearted....because he only farted.   Snort.

That's write.  I right cheesy jokes.  Sigh. 

Maybe Oreo's constipated.  Wait.  Where is my cheese?  It was there...on the counter.      


So far, I've read the following cheesy posts:

Have a wild and day!

"1.00s, 1.50s, 1.75s for the short arms. If you know what I'm talking about, you're probably old, too."

"Boomer brain fog: What was the last, middle, and first part of what you just said to me?"
