Titles That Didn't Make It..

I'm suffering an alarming dearth of blogging material lately,a side effect of things seeming to go fairly well,..I think.
Blogging about things that really piss me off is one of my most enjoyable activities,and when life is rolling along at an amiable pace,it makes it hard to get motivated.

So,..I decided to go back through my drafts,and see if there was anything I started that I might draw upon.
What I found was mostly just a bunch of titles that I intended to write stories around.
Like most bloggers,I always come up with a title first,and then make up stuff to go with it.

..Which is exactly what I've done here today!

Follows,..

****Sling's list of titles that didn't make it.****
  • 10 Things Every Woman Should Know About Male Menopause.

  • I See Dead People!!..wait,..nevermind.

  • Those Marks Are From Guys Touching Her With Ten-Foot Poles.
  • Titles That Didn't Make It.

  • O-Town..Land O' Plenty.
  • Does This Look Infected To You?...and,

  • Spotted Owls Taste Just Like Dolphins!
They all sounded pretty good at the time,but lost their appeal once the Vicodin wore off..

This reminds me of a list I read once from women talking about the worst come-on lines they'd ever heard from men. The best, in my opinion: "Wanna see something gross?"

Oh those are all brilliant..I am horrible at titles..you made me giggle out loud!

Secret Agent Woman- That was YOU?..

Sage- Well,I thought your title 'Homer has nine nipples' had a nice lyrical quality..It made me want to read more.

I always do the title last. Hmmm, what does that mean? Is there something wrong with me? Please advise.

I have some vicoden induced poetry that pretty much sucked too, but fun to write at the time.

Hey, I wanna read about Male Menopause, and about "Guys Touching Her With Ten-Foot Poles"! (Huh?? :))

And what looks infected? Let us see! LOL! :)

And DO spotted owls really taste just like dolphins???? :)

You've piqued my interest with these freakin' hilarious titles! :)

I am horrible at titles and like Random Thinker, I always do them last.

is this one of those "what comes first the chicken or the ...." polls? I sometimes do headlines.. sometime stories... sometimes change both... my therapist says.. never mind...

Let's see that infected part! And what sort of marks did the 3 foot Ukrainians leave?

i hear ya about running out of material. funny thing is i have lots of ideas until i sit at the keyboard then i come up dry.

i don't know if it's due to age or drugs.

I'm a story first and then right in the middle I think of a title....but mine are not creative or intriguing. So, whats infected? is it green or turning black? We could share notes about male menopause....given my husband's age, my age and the fact that I almost killed him twice in the last several years.

Sling...I got Your back... so totally understand.. YOU know.. even, way down here in TEXAS am here!

Yellerdawg- You know,I didn't really have any ideas until I sat down to write about not having any ideas.
I might be able to put together a 'Male menopause' post. ;)

Thinker- There's nothing wrong with you kid!..But I will forward your request for advice to the good folks over at 'Ask Sling'. :O

Jan- Did I say Vicodin?..I meant Prozac.

Willym- For real,whenever something moves me to write about it,usually the title comes to me before I've written the post..anywhiz,..turns out it wasn't infected,just a little swollen.

Billy P.- It's a delicate combination of both.

Rosie- By an amazing coincidence,being dispatched by an irate wife can be one of the side effects of male menopause.

austexgrl- Thanks doll!..I can always count on my Texas blogpals. :)

Contentment is not easy to write about, but wonderful to experience.

Mom- I agree..some things just have to be appreciated without words.

i do miss the bush administration for its ability to make me write some lovely rants..but dont miss it that much as his fan club is still around..them assholes.

"Those Marks Are From Guys Touching Her With Ten-Foot Poles." My favourite - I love it.

So the ten foot pole is said in the US as well as here...We have a variation "a ten foot barge pole"

Yellerdawg- My partner at work is a great guy,and we're good friends,but he listens to Limbaugh and Hannity all day long!..If I really wanted,I cold slam the blogosphere with vitriolic rants over those two idiots every day.

Middle Child- I wasn't sure if that reference would translate internationally..I'm glad it did! :)
