Why Stuph™?

Dearest readers,

I’m back and feeling much better today.  I’d like to thank all of you who offered well-wishes and warm thoughts yesterday.  I still battle depression on a daily basis and most days I can kick it to the curb, beat it down, force-choke it, or stomp on its scrawny neck, but when you face it with an insane lack of sleep that makes the chore infinitely tougher.

Thank you Polysyllabic Profundities for offering your ear, and a huge, ginormous, leviathan thank you to La La who let me abuse her ears all day yesterday and for offering support and words of encouragement as I battled my demons.  That was one extremely long-ass sentence.

And now, with all that sappy stuff outta the way, let’s move on to today’s Daily Prompt.

Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.

The reason I went with Stuphblog™ is because I didn’t want my blog to be confined to a particular topic and I wanted to be able to write whatever I felt like writing at any given moment without having to worry about whether it fit in with any theme I might have chosen.

I knew right off the bat that I’d want to use my blog to talk about life events, my children, and for editorials.  I’d later come to realize that I like to write fiction and poetry, too.  Had I narrowed the scope of my blog initially I’d have had to either start a new blog or rename my blog once I decided to begin those endeavors.

I chose my blog’s title because I love stuph™.  No seriously, I do.  My word for everything I find cool is stuph™.  Instead of using the traditional spelling of the word, I choose an alternate spelling so it would stand out.  So, in choosing a different spelling, I was in essence creating a new, yet similar word.  For those wondering what the differences might be, allow me to clarify.

Stuph (noun) – [stuhf] things that kick ass
Stuff (noun) – [stuhf] things that do not kick ass

If you have ever noticed Revis or I use the traditional spelling of the word (stuff) it is because whatever we are referring is the suck in our not so humble estimations.  Of course, we rarely write about stuff because who wants to talk about things that suck?  But sometimes a good rant is necessary.  It cleanses the soul.  Or some such.

Anyhow, that concludes my history lesson on this here weblog and its title and what the title means to me.  And yes, I’m aware that I just used the word ‘and’ way too many times in my last sentence and entirely too much in this paragraph.  AND, I don’t care.

It’s your turn, dearest reader.  Why did you choose your blog’s name?  And what does it mean to you?

  9. I always knew you were absolutely lovely, wonderful, gorgeous and stuph. (That has been my standard “flattery will get you everywhere” line for years, but before I’d been spelling stuph incorrectly.)

    FaithHopeChocolate comes from another blog of mine, on LiveJournal, where I thought it would a good title for that would be “Faith, Hope and Chocolate”. Of course, by the time I signed up here, FaithHopeandChocolate had already gone, so I’m faithhopechocolate. Like faith, hope and charity, but tastier.

  13. So glad you’re doing better today, TD. We all have the crappy ones from time to time.

    As for your name, I’ve always liked it. It gives you plenty of room to maneuver. I do worry about YOUR name, though, “TwinDaddy,” once Baby C gets a bit older you will have my problem — given that you are the Daddy of Twins Plus One!

    My blog name is stupid. Pure and simple. I should write about that at some point.

  18. I’m sorry I missed your post yesterday, insomnia sucks balls. I wrote an ode to it myself recently. I’m so glad that today is a better day. Perhaps you need to uncrack your shits? I often find hilarious laughter is the best medicine, it’s either that or the ugly cry and I’d rather not clog up my sinuses for the rest of the day. On another note, great post, and now I fully appreciate the stuph/stuff thing!

  20. I’m glad you’re feeling better, TD. It does not surprise me at all that you can kick them demons to the curb like no one’s bidness. Can you beat mine up too? Then you can add “mercenary” to your list of qualifications ;D

    I like Stuph. It’s good and all-encompassing. I often tell my friends, when they ask me what my blog is about, that it’s just about all my stuff. Good thing you trademarked it.
