many things make a post
the honor is mine

up with figs, cookin'

Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective lives mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch—either in illustration or word form—and the other would make a companion to the sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise makes both minds more nimble. Hopefully.


Things that ought not be baked in a pie:

  • Four and 20 blackbirds, for obvious reasons involving cliches.
  • Fingernails, not even those of your enemies.
  • Under-ripe peaches.
  • The transmission of a 2007 Kia Sportage. 
  • Resentment.
  • Eels. Please. Stop with the eels. No one likes them. 
  • Yo mama.
  • Soylent green. No, not even if it is a loose homage to Sweeney Todd
  • The gunk you pulled out of the sink drain. Why would you even think that was a good idea?
  • Your left Birkenstock. It is, however, OK to bake the right one.

What about lampreys?

If you can catch 'em, you can pie 'em.
