Silly syndicated stupidity
So, what does that title mean? Well, if you went directly to my site to read my last post, you probably missed it all together. But, if you happened to visit by way of We Like It Raw's Quickies page, you may have noticed something was not quite right in the first line.
Or, perhaps it was early and you were a little groggy like me. Maybe you didn't even notice it at all. Here's a reminder of my mishap (Just pan on down to the Sat. Jan. 26th posts and my leftovers pic).
Did you see it? Or, did you just read it the way it sounds, not comprehending the grammar (or lack there of) involved?
Thanks to my buddy ol' pal, Rawbin, it was brought to my attention in a personal e-mail yesterday. All she had to do was send me the first sentence ("You’ve gotta read the whole post to make since of this title"), and I knew exactly where I goofed (please tell me you caught it this time).
So, I put the word "since" when I meant to type "sense." Oops, my bad (now I really sound like Alicia Silverstone in "Clueless." I can't believe I dressed like that back in college). Please excuse my silly syndicated stupidity; I think I subconsciously brought it on myself.
You see, as soon as I found out my blog would be syndicated, my first thought (no, make that second thought; my first was actually, "yippie, thanks for noticing me," in true Eeyore form with an added Tigger/Jenny bounce), was so "if I have to correct an error here, will I be able to make the change there?"
Well, my question was answered, and the answer is, "no." Oh well, lesson to be learned: "Don't blog in the wee hours of the morning (I think it was 3 a.m. at the time I logged on yesterday)." Or, even better, "just don't make any errors in the first few paragraphs" (the rest of the post is on my blog only).
As for that Tigger/Jenny bounce I mentioned, I'm referring to the balance balls we both sit on while blogging and surfing the Net. It's great for your core, not to mention how fun it is. Just be careful if you are drinking your green smoothie at the same time. One of these days, I'm going to find it splattered all over the place.
Hey, Jen, did you realize how fun your name is when you use it in this familiar tune: "Jenny, jenny, bo benny, bananafana fo fenny, fe, fi, mo menny; Jenny!" My mom used to sing it all the time using our names.
Speaking of my mom, she's the one who inspired Thurday night's taco salad (she used to make it when I was little) and today's lunch, using my leftover raw Frito's (I made them like tortilla chips, but shaped them using a bag with a hole snipped at the bottom).
When my mother took a trip to Santa Fe (this was a few years ago), she came home raving about all the yummy food she consumed. But, the one dish I truly remember from her trip (I didn't actually go with her) was the chili served in a Frito's bag. She made us all try it the following Sunday dinner (we've had this tradition for a while now ... the meal together, not the chili in a bag).
So, today, I recycled a Frito's bag (don't worry; I didn't eat the real ones or go dumpster-diving to get it), using it as a serving bowl for today's lunch: chili and raw Frito's, topped with shredded carrots, avocado and sliced olives. Yum-O.
