[100 things about me]

<< current

[all content copyright 2007 by tequila mockingbird. seriously.]


from the french for “to blatantly rip off”
some days, if i didn’t get much sleep the night before, or i’m crabby, or i have alot of work to do (shudder the thought), i find myself in sort of a blog-bind. i want to post, need to post, but can’t think of anything dazzling to post. of course, i don’t let that stop me!

anyway, i sometimes cruise through some of my favorite blogs, looking for something to…uh…inspire me to pay homage.

hom·age n.
a special honor or respect shown or expressed publicly.

see, it’s a special honor…not a rip-off. uh, yeah, so today’s homage is to reecie. if you read many blogs, you’re gonna see lists, like this one, that i "homaged" recently. i really liked this list on reecie’s site, so today i’m “homaging” it. feel free to homage my homage.

[ed. note: homage is fun to say, but it starts to sound funny after a while. like pumpkin. say pumpkin a lot (and today would be a perfect day to do that, what with it being halloween. oh, yeah…happy halloween!) and pretty soon you’ll find that it starts to sound pretty ridiculous. and bubble. that’s another good one. bubble bubble bubble bubble. see? told ya.]

anyway, let's get on with the homage:
