I've got a pinch of a headache today and for some reason that makes my head want to shy away from deep thought and instead think about fluffily (my son made up this word years ago and it stuck) ethereal nonsense.

Did you know that "bee", like spelling bee, or quilting bee, or sewing bee, doesn't mean to get all hard working like a bee. Bee comes from a word that means prayer or favor. A bee means to get together and help each other out. So when a group of folks gets together to critique each others' work that could be called a critique bee.

I like that.

On more nonsense in me. I have pickily moods. Bologna sandwiches is one of my favorite curse phrases. I think that it is because I cannot imagine anything more disgusting than a bologna sandwich. I have been whelmed most of my life. This is the symbol for whelm => :|

My whole family is used to me and my nonsense word play. So play with your words today. Write some nonsense poetry. Draw some nonsense on a page. See if it doesn't make you feel better. See you next week.

I wanted something to illustrate whelm. I call this doodle: "Green Eyes."

Here is my weekly quote.

Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense. Robert Frost

So can we call the Monday night group the Blue Baker Bee? BBB? Which can also stand for the Better Book Bureau or Better Book Bee...I could go on...

I didn't know about the bee ... I always thought it was for working hard at a task together like bees.

I like the idea of a critique bee. Jen is it for me and she's very, very good.

Oh, I miss you and Jen. I miss your work. Really. We could have tea and Bee.
