Today’s Wicked Word: Wicked


This is what comes to mind when I hear the word wicked. The wicked witch from The Wizard of Oz, a movie I detest. I can’t really give a good reason why except that I watched it too young probably and it scared me. I didn’t get to have the teenage or adult experience of watching it high listening to Pink Floyd’s dark side of the moon or appreciating the camp of it all. Nope, for me it was sheer terror in an evil green woman stalking a girl and her dog, and OH MY GOD what was with the flying monkeys?! OK sure it’s hokey now, but to a 4 year old it’s terrifying!

There you have it, my lackluster addition (but an addition nonetheless) to Wicked Word Wednesdays!

Women’s World Cup Champions

Today in New York City, the first time a women’s sports team has been honored with a ticker-tape parade.


I’m so proud of our team and their victory. More than just the U.S. taking home the trophy, this Women’s Cup has proved that people DO like to watch women’s sports. Congratulations to all the teams that played and inspired their nations and the world, from the fierce competitors who are always in the top 5 to teams that came in and shocked the world with their heart and great game (Colombia).  I hope for each game viewed there’s a handful of young girls who take up the mantle and become the next generation of football/soccer players.

I am so proud to have watched the games, to know the names, to feel like I participated in my own way.  Kudos to you ladies.  You play and ROCK hard!  You know I’d have to include this song. 😉
