Silly Philology | “I Could Care Less”

I get confused when people say, “I could care less.” I mean, I guess I know what they’re trying to say, they’re trying convey their disinterest in whatever they’re interlocutor has said or asked.

The Potter and The Clay

God is the Potter And I am the clay. A constant reminder, That I need today. He pieced me together, In His image I’m formed. He continually shapes me, From dust I’ve been born.

The poorly made- and especially poorly assembled- brown bookcase stood awkwardly erect and empty at the foot of the painfully small bed. All my books had... Continue Reading →

Meta-bloggnition: Some Thoughts on Blogs 

Blog, blogs, blogging, blogger, bbblllllllloooooooggggg. Haha sorry that cracks me up. What a terrible word! "Blog" is the noise you'll hear coming from ponds in the spring when the Bullfrogs are breeding, but somehow it's come to replace the word "essay". It's the 1 year anniversary of my first blog post, "I Can Win All... Continue Reading →
