Thanks to everyone who participated in Wicked Word Wednesday. This past week we had 6 entries – w00t!

“Enough!” I hear you cry, “We want to know who won!”

Very well; the winner this week is . . .

Dr. Meg Sorick

His transformation incomplete, he sank to his knees, exhausted. With one talon extended, he scratched in the sand: “I am still a man.” The pain began again and he cried out in agony as the rest of the talons erupted from his fingers.


In second place we have


Her talons gleamed in the sunlight. A warning for what was to come as she slowly sat back in her seat, a cheshire grin stealing over her face. She knew what she had to do now. It was as clear as day.

Congratulations to this week’s winners (don’t forget your badges!) and tune in Wednesday for another Wicked Word!

Monday Morning Grievance: The Stoplight that Hates Me

It’s Monday and I haven’t had my coffee.

The stoplight downtown hates me. I know there’s many lights people get annoyed with, but I’m talking specifically about the one by the courthouse and the old bank and the building where the aldermen meet – the one right before the roundabout.

Why does it hate me?

I don’t know.

How do I know it hates me?

Easy. It’s always red.

OK, always is a slight exaggeration.

I kept a list over the past month or so, and the light is only red 94% of the time.

Still, that’s a pretty high percentage.

It’s even more annoying because most of the time – any by most I mean 9 times out of ten – I’m coming through late at night. I am literally the only one on the road, no-one else is waiting for the light, and as soon as I leave the roundabout it’ll turn yellow and force me to stop in the middle of the night for nobody.

It used to be that the lights downtown were on a timer and after 10.30 at night they’d change to caution lights.

No more.

Now, I must suffer the capricious whims of this apparently sentient traffic signal.

Thankfully, I won’t need to go that way today.

Tomorrow, though, I will.
