How to Make Life Better with Words:

  • Whenever I’m lonely, I take my carpet, add a space and I have a car pet that I take with me on road trips.
  • I take a piece of paper with me wherever I go. That way, if I want to escape, I can tear the paper in half. Two halves make a whole. The “w” is silent, so I ignore it and exit through the hole.
  • Manure: I just love that shit.
  • Prediction: The first true robot dog will be called “Dogmatic”.

Read this and You Can Pretend You are in My Brain:

Here are some recent thinks:
  • A name for a company that cleans up mildew: Mildon’t
  • I just saw “free range eggs” on the menu of this diner. Why would anyone put eggs in cages in the first place?
  • Apple should come out with a new edible (and healthy) tablet. They could call it the Vegetablet.

We are Waves

We are Waves, a poem:

We are, all of us, waves in the ocean

Made of the stuff around us

Connected to the stuff around us

Some fade gently away

Others crash spectacularly

And we are immediately reabsorbed

It was a short post about how rude a publisher was when they rejected my father-son cookbook idea. Back then, the cookbook was just a loose compilation of letters, emails and recipes. But I am thrilled to my…

Wordly-Words:

July & July 

Why is the month of July (Jü-l) pronounced differently that the given name, July (Jü-l)? The reason these two heterographs (words with different meanings and sounds that are spelled the same) confuse me is that they both come from Julius Ceasar. In fact, the given name comes from the month, just like the name “April” comes from a month. Back in Ceasar’s day, there wasn’t a letter…
