Author of the Queen City Boys books



I feel sloggy this morning.  Which is maybe a word I made up.  Maybe meaningless.  Maybe onomatopoeic.  Or a combination of slothful and soggy, which given that rain seems to have been constant for just about ever, makes sense.

Speaking of onomatopoeia, the Catalan bird sound is piu piu which is so much better than tweet tweet.  I kind I want to go around saying it all day.  Piu piu!

Miss Ten, because she loves me, sent me this link this morning: Bacon Peanut Brittle.  Oh my.

I wish I could show you the gifts I’ve been making for people, but since those people mostly read this, I can’t.  Alas.

  1. Damnit, now I want to hear the Todd Rundgren song. And even if I could find it online, I can’t do streaming audio at work. Curse you! *mwah*

  2. Oh Miss K, maybe just sitting around saying piu piu piu will make it better! 🙂

  3. Yeah in most Spanish-speaking countries birds say pio pio instead of cheep cheep too. And roosters say cucurucuru instead of cockadoodledo. Now I have this children’s song about baby chicks stuck in my head.

    Los pollitos dicen “pio pio pio” cuando tienen hambre, cuando tienen frio
    La gallina busca el maiz y el trigo, les da su comida y les presta abrigo
    Bajo sus dos alas acurrucaditos hasta al otro dia duermen los pollitos.

    Ah, brings back childhood memories…

  4. And I do! Every day should begin with visions of bacon, no?
