P is for Private

When I think about being really alone, enjoying the quiet, this is the scene I see in my mind. Not so concerned with being private really, just the quiet and the lack of company. Who hasn’t thought about living on their own private island out in the middle of nowhere, for at least a while.

I started the A – Z Challenge thinking this would be my inspiration or motivation to make more new ASCII art. But, it hasn’t worked out that way at all. I’m hoping to make a big push on reading other sites involved in the challenge this weekend. I don’t celebrate Easter so I’ve got all this time to do as I please. Of course, I have a massive to-do list hanging around, looking over my shoulder.

Lexophile is a Good Word

My Mother forwarded this in email today:

“Lexophile” is a word used to describe those who love using words in rather unique ways, such as “you can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”, or “to write with a broken pencil is pointless.” A competition to see who can come up with the best one is held every year. This year’s winning submission is posted at the very end.

When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.
A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.
When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C..L.A.
The batteries were given out free of charge.
A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.
A will is a dead giveaway.
With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.
A boiled egg is hard to beat.
When you’ve seen one shopping Center you’ve seen a mall.
Police were called to a day care Center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.
Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.
A bicycle can’t stand alone; it is two tired.
When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.
The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.
He had a photographic memory which was never developed.
When she saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she’d dye.
Acupuncture is a jab well done. That’s the point of it.

And the cream of the wretched crop:
Those who get too big for their pants will be exposed in the end.
