Welcome to Sticky Vine

Although I'm no stranger to blogistan, this is my first post on Sticky Vine. "Sticky Vine" is my spoonerism. In case you're curious, Dictionary.com declares that a "spoonerism" is 1. A transposition of sounds of two or more words, especially a ludicrous one, such as Let me sew you to your sheet for Let me show you to your seat. 2. transposition of initial consonants in a pair of words.

It is, obviously, a noun, and was coined after William Archibald Spooner, a British cleric and scholar. It was also the Word of the Day on May 18, 1999 (for the useless trivia buffs out there ~ all of zero of you who will be reading this!).

I decided to use my spoonerism because, frankly, I have a good one. Also, I have a fond connection to spoons ~ I prefer them to sporks and forks; and the spoon position when cradled by lovers, and all things that are spoony goodness. Perhaps it's because, when I was in college, I was co-president of my dorm, Spooner Hall, at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan. (If memory serves me correctly, a more adequate description of my dorm might have been "Stoner" Hall back then, but I digress.) Fond memories. Good times. Sigh. Good times.

Anyway, I hope to begin posting some worthwhile commentary. On life, politics, poetry, and the art of being.

Thanks for reading. Have fun.

Hi Vicki -

Welcome to the neighborhood! If you look here you will see some great ideas for a blog warming party.

Which reminds me, Hillary has not returned my Tupperware cake carrier. Maybe I'll call Bill and ask him to drop it by. I have to call Bill anyway, because their dog is getting into the trash again.

Congratulations!

Good luck, Vicki! ANd BTW, as a fellow Michigander, how in the hell do you exist as a progressive in Bland Rapids? My sister and her family live there -- she's definitely drunk the koolaid, even though she grew up in the same Detroit area liberal household that I did.

Any way, I'll be reading. Sammie
