PHYSICS OF BLOGGING & BROCCOLI
|Camera:||Canon PowerShot SD850 IS|
Yesterday, I wrote about Sisters and little ones transferring broccoli from their plate to mine. Sweetiegirlz commented : “Broccoli=Kryptonite“
Today I looked up the meaning of Kryptonite on Wikapedia:
The material is usually shown as having been created from the remains of Superman’s native planet of Krypton, and generally has detrimental effects on Superman and other Kryptonians. The name “Kryptonite” covers a variety of forms of the substance, but usually refers to the most common “green” form
The word Kryptonite is also used in speech as a synonym for Achilles’ heel, the one weakness of an otherwise invulnerable hero.
Sweetiegirlz! Did you know Kyptonite was GREEN!!! Like Broccoli????
I love blogging. Bloggers, at least those who read this blog, get it. Truly, even the stuff that I don’t quite get but write about authoritatively as if I do. And, then, they take it a step beyond.
It’s like Physics class except this time I pay attention. The world explained. I don’t fall off the chair because of electromagnetic forces. I thought it was because the book I was reading in Physics class was just so damn good: “Being and Nothingness” by Sartre.
Ok. Ok. I’m posing, showing off. It wasn’t that book. It was D.H. Lawrence “Women in Love” and it was considered X rated then. Totally big yawn by today’s standards, but back in THE day (and you know the 60′s still are THE day) it was oh, oh, oh. Here’s a G rated Lawrence quote:
- “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”
Anyway, thank you, blogger friends. My family emails me from time to time and says, “Hey! What’s happenin’?”
I respond: Ask sweetiegirlz, twobuyfour, tysdaddy, razzbuffnik, sanityfound, amberfireinus, nathaliewithanh, bonnieluria, planetross, meander, maggiedammit, turkishprawn, girlgriot and pomdog who is missing in action lately from here and his blog, but perhaps needs a shoutout today. So, all together at the count of three, go to his site, and leave this comment:
” Pomdog!! Hellooooooo…singleforareason misses you!”
And, these are just the names I can remember as I fall off my chair.
