Hey its Terrific Tuesday again. How’s everything in your neck of the woods? Today’s column surrounds “Olio.” Do you know what the word means? If you work the Roanoke Times crossword on a daily basis you may be familiar with the clue. “Hodge Podge.”
Dictionary.com defines the word in the following manner. “O-li-o: noun, plural o·li·os. a dish of many ingredients.Informal. 2. olla podrida ( def. 2 )3. a mixture of heterogeneous elements; hodgepodge.4. a medley or potpourri, as of musical or literary selections; miscellany.”
So we have an olio today. First join Pinterest. For me it is the cream of the Internet waste time spots. I will be your friend. Follow me at Cathy Benson catbe1. Today I will include a recipe I pulled off of there at the end of this tome. I took them to church for a meal on Sunday and came home with an empty container!
How many more different knock down commericals can the two presidential candidates and their supporters come out with before the election? Even YouTube has political commercials prior to the video I want to view. Enough already!!
Revolution is a knock off and an Olio of several different apocalyptic movies and shows. Let’s see “The Hunger Games,” for sure with the cross bow toting female lead. The Postman with the General and his Militia and the arm tattoo and the restored United States. “Jericho” from a couple of seasons ago after a nuke and Don Cheadle and his hidden computer. Sigh…. Oh sure I am watching, but it is another tired old tune not played a different way. Most people jumped on the band wagon because the guy from “Lost” wrote it. Not me. I am waiting for the 2012 apocalypse so I am just killing time until Dec. 21st.
Did you hear about the UFO in Danville? Turns out the night flying lighted object was manned by a guy flying a model jet plane with lights that chased in the wings. He was on Ch. 7 the other day. What a crack up!
Friend of mine saw a lady in a turban and long black cloak in Roanoke the other night. After some investigating it turns out the lady has been seen before– in 1902. So here’s a link for a good read as a preliminary to Halloween!
Olio the hodge podge is over for the day. See ya next week!!
