I got a really nice email this week from Flavio, a fan of Homophones, Weakly in Brazil. He suggested a pair of words I would usually shy away from: grease and Greece. I don't want to make a habit of including proper nouns on this site; I can't really explain why, it's just an internal rule I try to follow. Like Scrabble, I guess. But Flavio endeared himself to me by actually mocking up the artwork he was hoping I could post. Unfortunately the images he used were pulled from random websites, so I can't ethically post his mockup. But I thought I'd take this opportunity as we approach HW's 100th post to say that I really appreciate all the feedback I've gotten from everyone about this blog. It means a lot to me to see the different ways you all enjoy it. And while I haven't gotten to all of your suggestions yet, please understand that sometimes I have these internal rules I try to follow and don't always bother to explain. And other times, I gotta tell you, you stump me in trying to figure out the best way to approach the drawings (like resinated/resonated, Abe – sheesh! what am I gonna do there?).
Anyhoo, thanks again for all your suggestions and compliments. And, Flavio, this one's for you:
