Things You Shouldn't Say Around [BLANK]

Placed #35!!!

Just got results back from Bobby Griffin's new endeavor at The Blankest Blank. The Honk'n'Holl'r came in 35th place for Best Blog of the Year! I'm pleased as punch about it for the entries are all very good quality blogs. Many of which are my frequent haunts. My Congrats to all, and my thanks to all that voted for my little H'n'H blog. Good luck Bobby with this new endeavor.

Cheering Squad Update

Gale Martin has been doing great with her novel. Her manuscript is now up to 71 pages. A few people have wondered how you get into the cheering squad. Well, there is no rules or snooty cheerleaders pointing their fingers and noses at new candidates. All I need is a Go Gem! in my comment section and you're in. I either email, or post some type of kudos for Gale on behalf of the whole squad every Monday. So anyone who wants to join in and light a little fire under Gale's black satin undies and white short clad derriere just Holl'r Go Gale!

Those of you who do frequent Gale's Blog, are probably very familiar with the quirky comments that I do leave on most of her posts like the following:

Phheewwwww! I almost put out an amber alert out for Gem.

Extra! Extra! The Underwood kidnapped Gem

I've always had the visual of an author sitting at a polished mahogany desk in front of a manual Underwood typewriter with a sticky 'e' key. To the right is large, neatly placed pile of fresh white paper and a smaller stack of double spaced written pages placed face down to the left of the typewriter. Beside the desk, an overflowing black wire waste basket full of crumpled white pages with a few crumpled pages lying about the basket. I know it's a stereotype, but it still is a good visual.

Besides, those old Underwoods were evil, even possessed. Sitting there glaring at it's operator smiling it's steel toothy smile like that of the ivory filter teeth of a sperm whale ready to suck its operator in as if he were mere plankton. Banging out its gunshot bang at every key press as if it's announcing I-'-m---g-o-n-n-a---g-e-t---y-o-u-!

How can you tell I learned to type on an Underwood? Evil, evil things they are.

Funny--now my computeeer's eeeeee keey is sticking

Gale Responded with:
An Amber alert? Frank you are too funny. I love your anthropomorphic Underwood. Where's your novel, Frank? You should be banging one out, too, since your creative juices are flowing like water over Niagara Falls. (Okay the Canadian side of the falls.) Thanks for checking up on me. You and Linda are too good to me.
So, what's the President of the Cheering Squad supposed to do but accept the challenge.
I won't be writing a novel, but I am making an honest attempt at a short story called "The Possession of Joshua Banks," and I'm adding to it every day. I'm not a writer, so this adventure should prove interesting. Editing it is as I go is going to be the fun part. I started a new blog called Shortness of Breath and Prose, where I am posting the story as I write it. I have also posted other original short stories on that blog. So, please check it out when you can.


Foxxfyrre's: Things you Shouldn't Say Around [Blank]
Okay, it's a meme too. But it's a short and fun one to let your creative juices out and poke fun at your favorite [blank] thing.
Rules are simply fill in the [blank] in "Foxxfyrre's: Things you shouldn't say around [Blank]", and write at least eight phrases you shouldn't say around your [blank]. To make it intersting, when you tag someone, go to their memes and add a phrase using their [blank] topic. Send your list of 5 tags back to the person that tagged you so they can follow and play with their [blank] topics also.

Things you shouldn't say around Zombies!
  • Do you want to keep and eye on the kids.
  • Lend me a hand.
  • That stain just needs a little elbow grease.
  • You'll stick your nose anywhere won't you.
  • It's just a hang nail.
  • How about a little tongue?
  • What? Cat got your tongue.
  • He puts his best foot forward.
  • She gives great head.

I tag Mimi, Bud Weiser, Lizza, Ian, and Gale (and I know she's busy but)

Oooooo, this looks like fun, Frank! The possibilities make me giddy. I'll post mine tomorrow.

I gave Gale a bit of encouragement, it was fun! I'll send something similar to you in a bit. Just to show how much I appreciate my friend who lives in a stalactite-infested cave in Canada.

Also... saying "How about a little tongue" to a zombie is just plain creepy. :-)

Frank Sirianni said...

That's why it "around" Zombies not 'to' zombies tee hee. I was careful about that.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Great meme oh leader of us cheerleaders. I will feature it tomorrow!

Linda said...

Congratulations on your 35th ranking, good luck on your writing endeavor, and your meme was just TOO funny! Those were all perfect Zombie things; I'm looking forward to seeing how your tag-ees make out!

What a cute post, Frank. I'd love to play the blank game, but I have to earn it by writing three more pages. I'm going to do some prep tonight so I can get up and bang out 800 words. If it's okay with you, I'll do the blank as a Thursday Thirteen, if I can think of five more responses. Very funny and cute. You are such a great pal. Love you to death. And I'm glad you are writing. I'm stopping in after I write three more pages.

Ian said...

Now this looks like fun - I'll put it in my queue. :)


PS: Thanks for posting the widget! Always appreciate the support...

Frank Sirianni said...

Thanks for stopping in. I left this meme so wide open for people to fill in the blanks that it should lead to hilarious results.

I'm so looking forward to see how and what you'll fill the blank with and the phrases you will come up with. Whatever you fill it with will definately be hilarious.

I know that your sense of humor will do wonders to this little meme thingy. It's a pleasure to host the widget. Can't wait to read it. Kyote gave it a great review.

Frank Sirianni said...

I so can't wait to see what you'll do with this. I was just going to hint, hint for your Sunday Stealing post, but I'm just not that patient when I know somethings going to be funny.

We Can All Sparkle said...

First time visitor. I'm Gale's sister-in-law, Lori. Great Blog foxxfyrre! Great cheering squad! Sign me up... Go Gem!!!!!

Frank Sirianni said...

Thanks for stopping in beadhappy! I'll have you linked into posts and emails for the squad ASAP.

Barbara said...

Hi there,
You guys have room for another cheerleader??
Go Gale , GOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!
This one came from really far away, so I had to "honk & holler" a bit louder!
Like the rest of the gang, Gale has my admiration and support.

Keep it up !

I'll be seeing you soon.

Unknown said...

I'm also cheering for Gem! Go Gem! (Somehow I feel like Forrest Gump saying that.)

I'm a different Barbara that the poster above.

Lazy Daisy said...

Love your wide open meme...Put me down as an unofficial cheerleader.

Go Gem Go! (said while doing a double flip off a 3 man pyramid...the things one will do for a friend...sheesh!)

GO GEM: funny, kind, and helpful, which doesn't seem so "histrionic" to me. I took that test and was also labeled a histrionic, but I expected that: my family, my extremely labile parents especially, have accused me of the condition since I was small. In our family, it was not a compliment. But then--stable, hard-working but NEVER long-suffering, and stoic were. Stoic, ha! I wasn't the only either screaming from laughter, horror, or pain and/or weeping from joy, sorrow or both at once.
I wasn't even the (always) the loudest, just the closest target.
Personality disorders? It's difficult to think of any I don't possess, except of course, cold, distant, unemotional, and repressed. I and all histrionics are anything but.
Go Gem 2x--I admire Gale's writing.

Count me in on Gem's cheering squad!! :D

MM said...

Go Gem,

You have an amazing book in the works. I hope to hear from you online after the WOW class is over.
