I'm thinking, I'm thinking. (It's not working.)

And Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

My New Year’s Wish…

…To reporters everywhere, that they may remember to spell minuscule, that media is plural and that the Smithsonian is an Institution.
…To all elected officials, may they try not to proclaim ordnances (subject to a statue of limitations).
…To our President, a gift of replacement vowels so he can pronounce nu-cle-ar properly.
…To teachers everywhere, a primer (rhymes with dimmer) to learning instead of a primer for firing.
…To Microsoft Incorporated who overcharged me in '05, remember your name is an anagram for Sacred to moronic profit. (Don’t smirk, America Online, you’re an anagram for I’m inane oracle.)
…To interior decorators and retailers, a copy of Larousse so they may stop selling living room suits that include a chaise lounge.
…To fledgling scriveners, some good advice when getting a critique; remember that listen is an anagram for silent.
…To oxy-morons in all walks of life, remember there are intrinsic paradoxes in giant shrimp, military intelligence and airline food. May they try in 2006 to act naturally, never be clearly misunderstood and be terribly pleased with the rest of us.
…To netspeakers online, may your flying fingers spell out LOL and OMG so I understand what you’re saying. (I scratch my head, and cry “WTF?”)
…To neologists who live to coin new words, please try to find a synonym for synonym.
…And to writers everywhere, may you know your forewords from your forwards, may your agents return phone calls and publishers clamor for more, may your royalty checks be in every mail delivery and the muse of creativity knock regularly at your doors, and may you get positive reviews on every blogger’s list at

(Everybody chime in with a verse)

'Twas the night before Christmas
and all through this site
not a Wordtripper was sleeping
with free time to write.

Their fingers all danced
across the keyboards
trying to create
all the stories their mind stored.

(next) :)
Is this my reality or yours?

With it being the eve of Christmas day as I post this, I hope you all had a great holiday.

A happy Hannukah for those of us who celebrate it. Day 1 starts Monday! Hopefully, tomorrow (Boxing Day for the rest of you) will be much better than the tragic one of last year.

Glad to see everyone has survived the weekend!
And, Timberline, loved your resolutions! You should have them published.
And add one more...people who say "could care less" when it's "couldn't care less". Yeah, "nucular" is a particular peeve of mine. But then, I remember English as she wuz spoke once upon a time. That's one of the advantages...and drawbacks...of old age.
