30 Days of Writing - #24 - Roast or Toast Another Blogger

There once was a girl named Nicky
Who a bunch of bloggers thought was a sicky
She coerced us to write
30 days was our plight
In her honour I eat something sticky.

Nicky, of course, Works For Cheese. So a "toasted" grilled cheese sandwich is an apt response to today's prompt. Hit up the links on her blog to see how the remaining cheese lovers reacted to today's prompt.

Oh, I want that toasted cheese sandwich!
Nicky said…
I'm still trying to figure out if this is a roast or a toast :-)

Thanks Dufus!
Laughing Mom said… I'm hungry. Oh and Nicky's not a sicky - maybe a little twisted though...

A sticky widget? Maybe I can put it in my sidebar.

Thank you. I love grilled cheese.

I'm a sneak when it comes to grilled cheese. I toast two pieces of bread, then place a cheese slice between them and put in the microwave for 15 seconds to melt the cheese. Then I eat it with ketchup. I know. I'm lazy.

My future's so bright I gotta wear shades.

nonamedufus said…
Oh, no. She's a sick. Believe me.
nonamedufus said…
It's a bit of both actually.
nonamedufus said…
I'll make you one!

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
