G is for Gibberish

This is another post in the Arlee Bird A to Z Blog Challenge for April, a challenge I accepted of my own free will in a moment of craziness during which I thought I had unlimited ideas and plenty of time to mold those ideas into wonderful humorous posts. Today's post is an example of posting under the influence of fatigue.

G is for Gibberish.

There is a wikiHow on How to Speak Gibberish.

There is a Gibberish Generator at Keith's Think Zone. Actually, you may want to drop by Keith's for other reasons. He has a Solar System Scale Model Calculator and The World's Hardest Easy Geometry Problem and all kinds of neat stuff that's not gibberish.

There is a totally different kind of gibberish generator at Corporate Gibberish Generator on Andrew Davidson.com. I thought this one was especially funny since I once worked in a corporation out there in the real world (as opposed to writing world which is right next to the Twilight Zone).

Now that I think about it, the real world is the Twilight Zone. What was I thinking?

And now you know the kind of gibberish I can generate when I'm sleepy.

I almost forgot, I need to tie this post to the world of mystery/suspense/thriller.

I'm thinking...

Okay, so that didn't work out so well.

Wait...no, never mind.

Aren't you getting all excited to see what I come up with for H?

I would have liked to see what gibberish is. I'm going to check out those sites.

My definition of gibberish is what I find in my notebook when I look back over my notes. Things I thought were perfectly clear now seem to be written in an alien language. More shades of the Twilight Zone...

Kay said...

My notes also qualify as gibberish. More often than not, what I wrote at 3 AM in my notebook takes longer to translate than it did to write.

Even with darling grandbaby in the house to steal my attention away from the computer, I plan to do nothing but visit my blogger friends all afternoon. I'm taking my laptop to the kitchen so it's high on the counter top, and I'll stand watch while the little darling empties all the plastic bowls and pots and pans from the bottom cupboards again (and again). :)

teehee! LOVE it! I have to write EVERY WORD when I am taking notes or I end up with gibberish. I am just entirely to creative in filling in the blanks.

By the way--finished the Prairie Grass murders yesterday and it was FABULOUS! On the M day (which I will hit a couple days before others) I plan to review a couple, so I will give a shout.

I think Gibberish is a great G word. Well done!

Grammy said...

Gibberish is what I write when I am about to nod off to sleep while I am posting. ha.

Great gibberish! I'm pretty good at spouting it too... not sure that's a good thing, actually.

Raquel Byrnes said...

You're too funny! Great link, by the way.

Karen Walker said...

YOu crack me up, Patricia.

Fun stuff Patricia :) I do gibberish really well when I'm talking quickly... which is a lot of the time!

Wanda said...

lol...H should definitely be interesting :)

Lisa said...

Great G word. I even like the way it sounds. :) My favorite language, btw. LOL

I know what you're talking about--I'm there too. Sleep deprived, too much email, bleary eyed, not eating right, blah-blah-blah. And my granddaughter spend the day with us and wore us out. Gibberish.

G is for Gumshoe! (Or is using Sue Grafton titles cheating?)
