Hop-Along-Mondays


Playing in iTunes: "Throw it On Me" by Timbaland feat. The Hives

"Chill out, hop along!!" - Yes, this was actually said to me in all seriousness. Oh, Conor........ *shakes head*

Cheesy title yeah? It just so happens to be the topic for this post!! A friend of mine, who goes by the name of Conor, is notoriously cheesy with sayings. So, on the way to the gym today I told him I was going to enforce "Hop-Along-Mondays". Every Monday, I will give you a saying "straight from the horses mouth" and you can decide how terribly cheesy it is.

"What does this have to do with writing?" you ask. Well, one of the characters is loosely based on this friend of mine (sort of Izzy's Ron-Stoppable) and a few of these phrases may be making their way into book one!! Should be fun to spot, nonetheless. Feel free to comment with some of your own notoriously geeky phrases!! They may just make it into the books!!

Geekily yours,
Terra

P.S. Yes Conor...I have linked to you, so now you have to update!!!!

Howdy there!

Found your blog through a comment you left on the Fumbling with Fiction blog.

I like the Kim Possible picture for this post.

Cheesy sayings? Hmmm...will have to talk to my kids on that, but my favorite saying, which could be interpeted as cheesy, is from SpongeBob:

Hall Monitor!!

BTW: Good luck with the blog.
