New sotd theme week!

So I was reading Kevin C. Johnson’s review  of The Arcade Fire concert here on Thursday and he mentioned the opening act The National. I was all like “Oh, yeah, I think that maybe I’ve heard of them? Maybe? I have a friend who likes them? Or something?” And then I was like “Oh, I should check out some of their music, because I generally agree with Kevin C.’s (I call him Kevin C., because we go way back) recs.”

And then I was all like “Oh, what a fantastic Theme Week idea! I find a song from an artist/group that I’ve only heard about and feature it each day! I could think of my friends’ favorite artists and finally get around to checking them out for myself! Jackpot, Julie!”

And – lastly – I was, like, “Oh, why do all my sentences begin with ‘oh’?”

“Oh well…”


“Oh! crap! I just did it!”



We interrupt this break…

Walter, Wally for short, but you can only call him that if he specifically gives you permission. Trust me on this one.

Well, folks, I’m back! The past week I spent lounging on the beach was awesome, let me tell ya! I got a tan, and learned to surf, and swam with dolphins, and adopted a pet manatee – his name is Walter, and he is adorable.

And then I woke up.

But no, for serious: it has apparently been a busy week, though to my recollection I didn’t really do anything except go to work and almost get pelted to death by hail the size of baby orangutans (more on that in a bit). But I must have been doing something, because why else would I have been keeping my loyal reader(s) waiting for a new post for oh-so-long?

I’d apologize if I meant it, but I don’t, so I won’t. I will, however, give you an incredibly tantalizing sneak-preview of what’s on tap this week at The Sloppy Copy:

1. A new SOTD Theme Week!
2. More on that “almost getting pelted to death by hail the size of baby orangutans” bit I mentioned earlier
3. More Conversations with Juanita and a new Best in Show pic
4. I guess I’ll pick something to review for tomorrow. Oh! I just finished a book – an actual book! There we go.
5. Maybe I’ll even post something on the formerly-promised Fiction Thursday, but don’t hold your breath. Blue is not your color.

In the meantime, here’s a random pic for your enjoyment:

Any guesses as to what this is?



That’s right, it’s a frozen pizza.
