Blogging the Alphabet

Last I posted, we lived in Bend, Oregon. That was so two cities ago.

Now we’re back in Bellingham via Portland.

All our moves since 2011 have formed a lowercase ‘b’ on the maps of Washington and Oregon. I just hope we stop with that and not move to, say, Wenatchee to start forming an uppercase ‘B’.

Gone round the Bend

Gone round the Bend

Hello. (*tap tap*) Is this thing still on? Oh, hi. I’m glad you’re here. I thought I should check in, y’know, see how things are going.

Did I mention we’re living in Bend (Oregon) now? It may have slipped my mind. Long story short, we moved from Medford to Bend and, being budding nomadicists, we moved within Bend once more.

Gray, grey

Gray, grey

I have always been confused about the correct spelling of gray/grey. I’ve seen both and yet have resisted doing the research to answer which one I should use. The resistance comes because I suspect gray is more correct, but I like grey better.

Fractals for the fun of it

Fractals for the fun of it

For fun, I’m going to brazenly steal from another A to Z blogger, BuddhaKat, and post some of the fractals I’ve made over the years.

A to E: This is the end

A to E: This is the end

I got up on the wrong side of bed this morning. That’s a strange figure of speech. I always get up on the same side of the bed. How can the same side be right one day and wrong the next?

Actually, that’s not so hard to imagine. In a multiple-choice test, (A) might be the right answer one time and wrong the next. But in the case of bed-get-upping, I think sometimes the “wrong” side of the bed is really any side of the bed.
