There’s Good News…..And There’s Bad News…

First the good news.

It’s National Poetry Month, people – get your rhyme on!!!

I am Blogger of the Week over at The Byronic Man.  How about that!!  I won his  contest – “Question of the Week – best band name plucked from the headlines” with the delightful band name “Tainted Meat”.  They will be making their debut soon, I am sure.  Pink Slime (thank you, Lenore) is the opening act, of course.

My honey really, really liked my poem “Give up the Peanut Butter Cups and Nobody Gets Hurt” which was an entry in the group participation “Better Living Through Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups” event organized and masterminded by the legendary blogger, baker and chain-saw wielding Peg0leg.  It was so much fun, and the King Sized Peanut Butter cups waiting for me this evening after work was a example of delayed gratification (it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, kids – get your gratification while you can – instant gratification whenever possible).


Today I am guest blogger over at The Monster in Your Closet.  Deb’s “For This I am Thankful” series has presented us with deep and thoughtful posts by very talented writers – make sure you read some of them if you haven’t already.  I have written – what else? – A POEM!!  Yes.  a poem.  Deb has the very cutest little boy, a tender heart filled with amazing strength, and an ability to write heartbreakingly beautiful words.  I am in awe of her amazing writing abilities and quite envious, if the truth be told.


Now for the bad news…


Oh, to hell with the bad news – let’s worry about that another day….Party on!

  1. Wise choice, although I hope the bad news isn’t really bad. 😉 I look forward to reading your post over at The Monster in Your Closet.

  2. I am very excited to read your guest post over at Deb’s but now I’m concerned about your bad news.

  3. hahaha This post is full of some seriously awesome awesomesauce. Cannot WAIT to read your FTIAT poem!

  4. Oh dear, concerned about the bad news.
    Be right over to Deb’s to read another awesome poem, I’m sure.
    I have a concern. Andy still hasn’t arrived to Judith’s house. usps says he arrived to NZ at 7:15 am, April 12, but still hasn’t arrived to Judith. Is it a full moon?

  5. I hope the bad news part was just you, taking poetic license.

    Congrats on ruling this blogosphere this week!

    • Poetic license….I just caught that. Guess I am on fire with the poetry this week. If only I could make a living writing this nonsense. What was I thinking taking this full time gig, anyway?

      The bad news isn’t HORRIBLE bad news, and part of it is really FUNNY bad news, I was just too tired last night to write any more and too lazy to change the title. So I am hoping to get a post cranked out for tomorrow. Please don’t worry your pretty little chain-saw-wielding self about me…(I could probably feel a lot better with one of those peanut butter cup trees) Probably. Maybe. Really. Most definitely. And one of those sundaes from over at Lenore’s.

  6. hahahah… great post… love the ending… got me to laugh pretty hard 🙂
    Enjoy the weekend.

  7. Clever girl… but I wonder about your health. Now I’m worried. Congrats on being the bell of the blogging ball, though! All over the place!

    I second Peg. You appear to have taken over the intarwebz this week, in a reign I’m happy to salute!

    Also, I love your poem, your thoughts on me, and your sharing your thanks over at TMiYC. It is a pleasure hosting the current ruler of the intarwebz. ♥

  9. MMMMM Peanut Butter cups! I was blinded by the logo…..Thanks again for the great poems you posted on my site. It is fun to see someone who is so good at this. You make everyone’s day with your poetry!
    Hope you got a good night’s sleep to take on your other “news”.

  10. –Love your poem ❤ You are Super. Xxx

    • I love you – your heart-wrenching, punch-to-the-gut posts remind me all the time that our world can be turned upside down in a nano-second and to celebrate each moment. Glad you liked it.
