Darkness – Scrabble Scribble #13

Posted by on December 9th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Are you afraid of the dark? Well, maybe you aren’t anymore. Or maybe you are. Maybe it’s only after you watch a pea-soup-splosion like the Exorcist or some nutty mind job like The Ring.

Parenterms: “Grayllow”

Posted by on November 19th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

When “off white” is so far off that it has entered the whiteness relocation program and changed its name, it has probably changed its name to Grayllow. With any article of clothing that’s white, or close enough to wind up in the “lights” laundry pile, there’s a certain point when you can’t boil or bleach […]

Posted by on November 7th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS
