Short (and Sweet?)

…And now back to our regularly-scheduled blog posts. This week I had a hiatus from the internet courtesy of our DSL provider–much of our area was off line for a couple of days. Very disruptive. Although I had internet withdrawals and started getting a nervous tick that made others hide their frightened children, I think it was healthy to be low-tech for a couple of days.

Apparently I didn’t list your favorite superheroes. Besides the mighty Tick, who did I leave out?

Anyway, I’m so proud of how many of you rose to the Balderdash challenge! And for all of your trouble, here are the top-secret true definitions of the words:


having sections or patches colored differently and usually brightly; “a jester dressed in motley”; “the painted desert”; “a particolored dress”; “a piebald horse”; “pied daisies” [syn: motley]
