Random Thoughts

---I’m doing more of these because people seem to like them. Considering how much I babble on, I’m surprised.
---Mystery of the day: how the heck did I come into possession of a nineteenth century German coin?
---Before you go planning any heists, it’s only fair to warn you that it isn’t worth anything. Unless I destroy every other one left in the world.
---I have the vague formation of an idea, so I suppose I’ll do NaNoWriMo this year. Going in without a plan is usually how I do things anyway. Go check me out here.
---Seriously. Having no idea what’s going to happen is awesome. When I’m writing, anyway.
---You know what If I want the definition of aphetic, telling me “pertaining to or due to aphesis” doesn’t really help. I mean really. No freaking duh it’s related to aphesis.
---By the way, it means how a word evolves to lose an unstressed syllable.
---Figuratively, if the sun were an orange, the earth would be a grain of salt. People don’t realize how huge that sucker is.
---Further figuratively, if the sun were a grain of salt, VY Canis Majoris would be a freaking basketball. 
---The more I learn about space, the scarier it becomes.
---A few weeks ago, I spotted a deer in my backyard. There’s one of those DEER X-ING signs about a mile away, but this is the first time I’ve ever actually seen one.
---I also saw a wild turkey once. Not around here. In fact, it was near the exit to the airport.
---Well, they can’t fly on their own.
---One time, I misspelled sequitur as “sequiter” and Word suggested squitter and sequined, but not sequitur. Really Word? REALLY?
---The “Here Comes the Bride” wedding march is from a German opera. Yes, it is played during a wedding. Of course, most weddings don’t end with murder and the death of the bride. At least, most non-German weddings don't.


  1. Haha! Enjoyed this post :-) People's random thoughts can sometimes be the most entertaining thing!

  2. The coin got dropped into your possession by a time traveller who'd just been in Bavaria circa 1890.
