Well, I was going to write a blog entry about some deep and important topic, of which I have a few in mind.  But Mom, my Chief Research Assistant, was way too busy to help with the in-depth research.  Also, she was hogging the computer because she was writing something called the "President's Page" for the cactus club's newsletter.  Mom is the president of the club, and that is why she has to write this thing every month.  Mostly, she just rambles on without saying anything very interesting, but sometimes she really does say something important.  Of course, it's never as good as what I'd like to be writing in my blog, if Mom weren't hogging the computer.

Anyway, I had to come up with something easy and fast to write about, so that is why you are getting to read some more things from Mom's collection of silly stuff people say and write.  And tomorrow I hope I can write a really meaningful and good entry.

We are cogs on the road of life.

It's like I'm Joan of Arc, carrying a torch for the whole game.

I'll have to cross that bridge when it gets here.

They've gone too far into the precipice.

We need to clear up some ruffled feathers.

They're beating down my doorstep.

Tell me on what planet on earth this is done.

  1. Hi Piper, it's been a long time since I got to write!! Gosh, my mom was soooo excited when she saw your topic today!! For some reason and ODD reason in my opinion my mom loves reading/hearing/learning about "words, phases, things people say, etc.," I guess us cats don't get so excited about words....but it must be interesting to alot of "humans." My mom also said she hopes that you will write on regional phrases some day. I have NO idea what she's talking about, but she gets a good laugh at what her WV relatives say - not a laugh like making fun of them, but at the words they use. I guess it's time for me to stop typing...I'm getting the "eye" from my mom! Happy New Year!
    Love, Dodi

  2. Dear Dodi,
    My mom was very glad to know that your mom likes this weird topic, just like she does. I think our moms must both be weird in the same way! Hahaha!
