Well, hell, I thought. That’s a tough one. Invent my own hamburger with anything on it? Sheeeeeit.
Once again, Mental Mama and The Indecicisive Eejit have given me food for thought and inspired a titch of creativity. I think this is their last cartoon challenge, however, and for that I’m a bit sad.
Back to Build a Burger. It seemed a difficult concept at first – but my Imagination Goop flowed rather quickly and gave me an Idea. Making the Idea
into a work of art was harder. There’s a story, of course!
I recently have had an album on nearly constant rotation on the car CD player. It is by a little-known indie/grunge band called Sugartooth. They only released two albums, and I only have the first one. Back in 1997 a guy at work (who was quite married and practically begged me to let him into my pants – I did say no) gave me a copy. I forget his name (but not his face) and I will be forever in his debt for introducing me to Sugartooth’s music. One of my favourite lyrics inspired my crappy drawing – from a song called Black Queen, “I was hungry, so I ate all the words I could swallow.” Poetry does still show up in rock music. Yes, Sled – I know it isn’t your cuppa whiskey, but you might be surprised. Raucous, yes – but also emotional. I need emotion in my music.
On to the cartoon.
I knew I could only fit a few words into my sandwich, so I picked four of my favourites. I love them for the way they sound, or they way they feel in my mouth, or the memories I have when I learned the word. ‘Vegetables’ is straight up juicy – it makes me salivate when I say it. ‘Ubiquitous’ is a memory of my father naming annoying children at the next table “ubiquitous” – with a long suffering sigh – and me loving the word but not having a clue what it meant. ‘Serendipity’ – you just have to love it. Luck. I think I read a book when I was a wee child and a dragon-ish Thing was called Serendipity. Also, it is something I’m short on and would gladly eat more of… Sanguine because it is a slippery word in my mind and also is important to me for a bit of fiction I was/am writing.
Hope you bothered to read all this, it was equally fun to do and significant for me to share.
I do love it! It almost had a second meaning. A quiet aside ‘oh, ubiquitous is here tonight!’ meant everything to my family and baffled all the rest 🙂
Ha! Love the little slang that develops in a family.
Especially when it is a rarely used word like that one 🙂 Almost like using pig-Latin!
My mom used pig latin when I was a kid to hide things from me but I picked it up very quickly. After that she was stumped. Too bad she couldn’t speak a foreign language like Spanish because I could have learned that as a small child too. I had to wait until high school instead. I have tried to teach pig latin to my daughter so we can communicate in front of my son but so far it hasn’t caught on. For now we’re just spelling things out. He’s catching on though. LOL
Last? What? What hasn’t that little imp told me???
Your burger is lovely, by the way. 🙂
I hope it’s not true. I just took a week off from blogging, and the cartoon craziness challenge is in danger? Geez, no more breaks for me! 😉
First I knew, that girl is on another planet Mama, a whole other feckin planet lol
Hmm, perhaps she just doesn’t want to play our little game anymore and thought she could shut us down….
……I get knocked down but I’ll get up again…..they’re never going to keep me down lol unless she punches me lol
Chumba Wumba? Really? 😉
Well it is Saturday and shussh anyway, you know you love me anyway despite my bad taste in music lol
No judgement here, I actually bought that album when it came out. And yes, I do love you. ❤
The feelings mutual 🙂 x
Agh!!! The little bastards ARE ubiquitous!!!!
Thought you’d like that!
I love your burger! Awesome way to interpret this prompt!
That’s great, I love it, and I am more than interested to check out Sugartooth later when I have more time.
What made you think this was the last challenege?? Did you tale my first paragraph up wrong, ya eejit ya?
Must have! Sorry!
You’re a total eejit, you know that right? but i loves ya!
I know! I was in a funny mood last night.
I’m guessing not funny ha ha?
Doesn’t appear that way, does it? Took myself a little too seriously in that post 🙂
Well I’m going to the pub in a bit, maybe that will cheer me up!

Curry chips with cheese! Mmmmm.

Serendipity is the title of a movie that I highly recommend. It’s a romance, but it stars John Cussack, so you know it’s not your average romance. Nobody dies in there though. I love the word since I saw that movie. Not that I totally understand its meaning though.
