Silliness Sisterhood


My blog title is an answer to the question 'What to slags, slugs, soup and sophistication have in common?'

We had so much fun on Monday with all of us posting on the same four wacky words that we thought maybe we'd do it again. Each of the four of us came up with a word.

Tara, being Tara, thought of Slag (which is an affectionate term for the party girls of Cardiff, meaning SLUT, but in a nice way—oh, those nutty Taffs)

Cruella likes only ONE thing almost as much as giraffes... that is SLUGS.

Rayna is the classy one... she really ought to be prime minister or queen compared to the rest of us goofballs. She chose Sophistication/

And me? Soup. Why? I like soup. I even can MAKE soup, which if you knew the rest of my culinary skills, would impress you.

So I thought I'd drabble you a little tale (and then give brief evidence that the silliness sisterhood is not limited to us)

****

The Slag Sonya saw snotty Sara smirk and swallowed suspicion. She shunned shopping silver stilettos and sauntered several streets, seeking solace. Shallow Steve, the snake, spilt secrets regarding silk sheets and savored sweetness. Showy sophistication seeped southward. Steve was a SLUG! Still, several saved screen shots showed Steve stripping—silk scarves slung sexily, strawberry syrup strung on his solarplexus. Sonya pictured Sam and Sully sneering at their supervisor. She supposed snickers swayed soon. She stared at her Sony, savoring suspended revenge. Several sister slags sang songs and sought studs. Sonya sipped soup and pressed send. Steve would see submission before sunset.

79 of 100 words start with S... Not bad...

*****

I'm terribly curious to see how this compares to Rayna's drabble... for Thursday twins with similar perspectives, we sure are different on some thing... teehee...

And... to show my sisterhood is more a FLOWER with lots of petals, rather than a circle with just one type... I wanted to share the conversation that most amused me yesterday... Stacy and Rissa are both FRIENDS with my fellow Burrowers, but they are a separate set—when I dived into the Harry Potter thing... BEFORE I knew I was going to give writing a change, these were my Wizard Warrior Peeps. They are both writer's at heart, Stacy with a few publishing deals in process, Rissa earlier in her writing life (and needing encouragement) but also having great artistic skill (painting, drawing).

This was copied from Facebook as best I could figure out with my limited technical skill... (for those of you new around here, in another life, I am Tami)

Stacy Gail-Author: I loved writing the steampunk story, but I have no idea if it's ACTUALLY steampunk. I seem to recall I had the same uneasy feeling when I finished the cyberpunk project... :/

    • Tami Hart So do they have Agripunk and Ironpunk, or is it just the last two ages that have had punks?
    • Tami Hart CAVEPUNK!
    • Stacy Gail-Author HA! Cavepunk will be the next best thing, better than sliced bread!

      Y'know, there's no rule that says we can't create our own. How about, erm... Currentpunk? Nah. Cavepunk still rules. :D
    • Tami Hart Inquisitionpunk. Oh, I could do this all day...

    • Marissa Montano Oh come on, you guys have completely overlooked the great IcePunk and EnlightenedPunk . . . not to mention JurassicPunk!

    • Tami Hart HunterGathererPunk!

    • Tami Hart DOH! Punkpunk!

    • Marissa Montano BronzePunk . . .that just sounds nice *grrr*

    • Stacy Gail-Author For the Dark Ages we could go for DarkPunk. And for an insane asylum story you could do DaftPunk. Oh wait, that's a band... never mind! XD

    • Stacy Gail-Author It just hit me! Guys, we should do an entire series on this, self-publish, and become ZILLIONAIRES! As a plan, it's foolproof.

    • Marissa Montano Fantastic . . . noone can resist a series with Punks in it, and there is no end. Space Punk, Medievil Punk, DepressionPunk --maybe not

      *giggles*  Aren't they fabulous!?  I love my silly sisters!

The Silliness Sisterhood!!! I do love that. And it is the silliness that keeps me sane.

Love your take, Tami. 79 out of 100 words is simply superb.

Mine? Let's just say I decided to go with the older, more metallurgical meaning of the word 'slag'!

Jeanne said...

What fun you guys are having. Keep it on coming. Silliness through words is so refreshing and such a belly laugh. When I get together with my wordy people, that is all we do is laugh and do plays on words. Fun fun. Great post.

Cruella Collett said...

Tee hee - silly sisterhood indeed! Loved it :) (And yay for different takes on our soupslagsophisticatedslug thing!)

Al said...

Silliness is the best antidote to life's troubles!

Old Kitty said...

In my 80's heyday, the term slag was never meant to be a term of endearment! LOL!

And Punks ruled OK too!! Oh bring back the 80's!!

It was great time for unbridled dayglow NAKEDness! With extra lipgloss! Take care

You know there's a lot of s's when you start lisping in your head as you're reading. Happy Friday!

Niki said...

haha you're so clever :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

At least it wasn't slug soup. But why does the guy have to be the slug?

Katie Mills said...

lol- I'm still confused about all the 'punks'. I loved your alliterated 'S' story. Reminds me of back when Jessica did all her A-Z's alliterated (I could NEVER do that! So I'm in awe)

Tundiel said...

All those s's! Wow! I'm impressssed...

You already know, but I think I still have to tell you that I've left you an award on my blog. It's a condition, or some such thing...

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* Thank you my friends! I sure do enjoy my peeps! AND I enjoy all of YOU!!!

Me said...

Yep

erica and christy said...

That was a lot of S words! Your punk discussion was funny - despite many tries, no one has ever been able to explain steampunk in a way that I can understand!

David L Macaulay said...

really impressed with how many s words you got in there...

Johanna Garth said...

I'm thinking maybe you could add a parseltongue post to up your s quotient, and it would certainly be in keeping with your silliness sisterhood. There is a lot of parseltongue being spoken around here lately. Not being a speaker myself, it sounds something like this, "ssssssssallashaaaaashssssshhhhsss" Okay there are a few h's thrown in and you'd have to provide a translation but I have no doubt you are up to the task.

Happy Friday!

Marjorie said...

How is it that I am completely missing these conversations?

vbtremper said...

I love soup. I could eat soup every day. There is a soup for every season, taste and hunger level. Ahhh soup.

Tessa Conte said...

*snort*

OMG *takes deep breath but has to laugh again*

JURASSICPUNK! haha! That's a great conversation!

Silliness Sisterhood indeed, how cool!!

Oh and the Drabble is great, too, ; P

What a scintillating story of superbly silly sisterhood.

Will Burke said...

That's Awesome! I'm stuck on AgriPunk -- I'm seeing some hardcore Amish MoFo's. Those pitch forks will f*** you up!

Ca88andra said...

Super! Supreme! Superb! Sublime!

sue said...

Brilliant Drabble! *says to self "must try harder" :P

It's so much fun to hop between your blogs, a super bit of mid wayish silliness. Thanks ladies Sue@JumpingAground (Alliteration & drabbles)

Trisha said...

My friends and I always call each other Slut, Whore, Bitch, etc., but it's not an insult, nor does it REALLY mean we're sluts and whores and bitches :P

Ella said...

Very Silly n' fun~ Sassy drabble and I vote for Cavepunk. I'm on the Cavewoman diet and I need to punk out~
