IT'S ONLY TWO DAYS before the beginning of the A-Z challenge and as I’ve mentioned several times in the past week or two, I’m chucking my previous A-Z posts. What am I going to do in its stead?
Yes, it's true, and I hope everyone is ready for this epic 11th hour ditching of a month’s worth of posts. Now I can tell you what I was going to post about, since I’m not doing that anymore.
Yes, I was going to start ‘A’ by talking about the letter ‘A.’ My first post talked about Arsenio Hall and how he would stand just like an A at the beginning of each show.
‘B,’ well, it was going to be about how the capital letter looked like both a butt, and boobs. Yes, by day two I was already jumping the shark and going for cheap titillation. By the time I got to the mid letters it was just like how much an ‘I’ looks like a lower case ‘L’ and about then I ranted about our lack of creativity and predicted eventually all letters will just be a simple tic mark. Then I think I ended the month with a plea for us all to ban together to get rid of redundant letters.
So, it was for the good for us all that I decided to go for something new. Here are my thoughts about what I might do.
Option A: A sketch a day. My old blogger buddy Les used to have a whole blog dedicated to doing just that. He doesn't really do that anymore, but I figure I can whip up something daily for a month. If I get desperate I can just start sketching letters.
Sunday I could sketch of an Apple, Apollonia, Apollo Creed, Ants… wow, the possibilities are only limited to the letter ‘A!’.
Option B: I could do a star a day. I don’t talk about Astronomy much here, probably because I seriously doubt very many people want to hear me wax poetic about Acturus, Betelgeuse, etc. But my love of the cosmos means I’ve got a pretty good working knowledge of the night sky. The real question… who cares besides me? Again, I’d guess, not many.
Option C: Book titles (or authors) that begin with each letter. It might get tough with some of the less popular letters, but I think it would be fun.
I’ll probably do one of the three. Actually, by the time this post goes live I will probably know already, and hopefully have already begun work. Ooh, the excitement.
