Here's to a new month

(Warning: the next paragraph is going to use the extremely pompous and irritating royal "we".)
Doesn't it seem appropriate for LeLo in NoPo to participate in NaBloPoMo? We think so.*
Okay. Enough of the royal we. I can't do more than that. So as to the topic at hand...welcome to a new month, and for those of you familiar with my completely irritating game, PINCH AND A PUNCH IT'S THE FIRST OF THE MONTH. And with that, we'll be joining the ranks of other bloggers and writing a post every fricking day this month as part of National Blog Posting Month. See how I'm aleady jumping all over the place with topics and free associations and such? Nice. Let's see if I have any readers at the end of the month. Things I foresee blogging about in the coming month....a trip, a visit from Ginger (Wink's sister), the kick off to a pretty large home renovation project (yeah! no kitchen for 4 months!), Thanksgiving, Day of the Dead, and I might throw in some self portraits (it's just been too long, hasn't it?). Other than that? Well, you'll have to check in to see what twattle I pull out, and props to Rozanne for the link to the project and to the use of the word twattle. About NaBloPoMo:
NaBloPoMo is an alternative to November's NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, the program wherein you crank out a novel in thirty days. Some of us lack the imagination, stamina, and self-destructive impulses required to write a novel that quickly, but, by Grabthar's Hammer, we can update our blogs every day for a month!
*What is with the royal we? Have you read other bloggers using it? I don't get it. Is it like in reference to their house of blog instead of just to themselves? Does it bug you as much as it bugs me? Am I just weird about that?

I never would have guessed the true meaning of twattle, had I not seen it in context. Actually, I'm still not so sure you didn't write something dirty.

I like it, I can't wait to read your post's every day.

"twattle" I can't bring myself to go there.

Anyhoo... Bring It.

Rozanne said...

Hold your horses everyone--it's twaddle, i.e., nonsense or silly talk.

Twattle, I would imagine, would have an entirely different meaning, based on its "root word."

We are HIGHLY AMUSED by your use of the royal we, as well you know.

Rozanne said...

And yay! that you're doing NaBloPoMo.

LeLo said...

Wouldn't you know I'd spell TWADDLE wrong? Bad bad bad! We promise it won't happen again.
