Alistair and Alexis in “Countdown To Christmas”

If you haven’t met Biff, of the gloriously named Blog Biff, Sock, Pow I strongly recommend that you check him out. I promise in my heart of hearts that you will not be disappointed.

His daily blogs are a delight. He will tell you that he is writing a “Seinfeldian” post about nothing and then regales you with his humorous wordplay and unique take on even the most mundane.

The true Arrow in Biff’s quiver is his delightful “Alistair and Alexis” series. The exchange between this fictional couple is delightful, his characters amusing, his references comically impressive and the wordplay and dialogue paint such a picture.

Why this guy doesn’t have a million followers is beyond me.

Check out this entry in the A & A series. He deserves the read

This is the attitude that we all need to have, one that those with chronic illness can teach all of us if we open ourselves to it. It will definitely influence the way you look at others when you pass them on the street.

 

“I wonder what people think when they see me.” That was a common refrain of mine once the symptoms became entrenched and my mobility became compromised. I was never one who liked to stand out in a crowd, preferring instead to blend into the background. MS made that impossible. My inability to walk in a straight […]
