Prequel Substitute?

“The word ‘prequel’ bothers me,” Admin says. “It mangles the Latin roots.”

“You’re referring to the fact that A Cat Was Involved is a prequel?” says Spence.


“Well, what would be a good word for a series beginning that comes out of, if you’ll pardon the expression, sequence?”

    Good morning Spence, Admin,and Melanie. According to Merriam-Webster, prequel is “a work (as a novel or play) whose story precedes that of an earlier work”. So this fits. As to those mangled Latin roots,: Bee, HELP!

    Good morning Melanie, Oley and all.

    Off to work in a few. Final countdown – 4 days of work remaining. Yea!

    Had a little wind storm last night, minor damage only. A big branch fell and broke one of the picket fence tops. Might be able to glue it back on.

    Later guys, have a lovely morning.

    Patsy and I are going on a road trip. First to deliver a book then to find a grave stone with the carving “IT” on it. Supposedly haunted. I am taking Patsy for protection. She says that she hopes it’s a skeleton because she would like a bone. A certain Royals’ Mum asked what I was going to do if Patsy freaked out. I said RUN . .

    After that it’s on to the v*e*t’s where we are picking up meds, then the store. Why in a hurry? Storms. Our town’s Police chief did the calls last night after speaking with meteorologists. SEVERE storms, maybe a tornado. I will be coming home to batten down the hatches.

    Good Morning All!

    The useage of the word, “prequel” has become so common that all of us know immediately what it means.

    Melanie? Would you please explain later why you are looking for a gravestone with the word,”It” carved on it. This sounds like fun…makes me think of Stephen King’s book.

    We are very happy for Barb that she only has 4 days left working for the CL.

    Good day all!

    Melanie, I think I want to go with you and Patsy to find that grave. Sounds like wicked good fun!

    Barb, I hope you are putting nice big red Xs on your calendar marking your days until freedom.

    SiberH, my sweetie, you are here on the blog with us! Yipee!

    10:09 am on July 26th, 2012

    In what way does “prequel” mangle the Latin roots? “Pre” means before. “Antecedent” would be extremely ambiguous wouldn’t it? “Prequel” is in the dictionary.

    Good morning all.

    Barb – we are doing the Happy Corgi Dance for you. Each day we will add one more twirl to the chorus with each crossed off day. Thank goodness there are only 4 days left – we would be very dizzy Corgis. Sport.

    Melanie – bring your Ghost Buster Spray!

    Yikes!!! They are talking about tornados here too. Excuse us while we go make sure our under-the-bed accommodations are ready.

  13. B.Stover
    10:19 am on July 26th, 2012

    “Prequel” is a word applied to some form of artwork; “precursor” is more general than that. It is based on the Latin praecurrere meaning to run before.

    Good Morning Internet Literary Group Blog-Mates!

    Countdown for Barb&Magpie: Only 4 more days at the CL busy place and less than a month before the big move.

    Siber-H: Good to see you this morning!
    Today we will put in a call to WAVE, our ISP, regarding information on the wifi password. Nana found some chicken-scratching from long ago, but can’t decipher it.

    O.Howlers: Heard about your poor tomatoes after the storm…hope the plants will bounce back.

    Speaking of storms…Melanie and Royals…Stay safe!!!

    B: Someone here will join you in that cup of cawfee.

    Smoochers: I am concerned about you blurring in this weather. Very severe thunderstorms, with high winds, and hail are expected for late this evening into tomorrow, with more thunderstorms and rain scheduled for Friday. I will have the Prof with me all day. I don’t want any of you to risk whisker or paw to be with me. Just imagine if Belle Starr looked like a porcupine after biting a lightning bolt, what she might look like traveling in the middle of a terrible storm.

  19. Belle Starr
    10:51 am on July 26th, 2012

    Rose: We Smoochers are like the postal service. We wil not be kept from our duties because of rain, sleet, snow, flying corgis or threats of mussed hair. We will be there. We know the professor means well, but he is so allergic to you that it gets in the way of properly taking care of you.

    Masquers: Can you be ready to go right….now?!

  20. B.Stover
    10:59 am on July 26th, 2012

    I looked up “prequel” on and it only started being used in the 1970s. Interesting. For some reason the “se” was taken off of “sequel” and the “pre” was added. (There is no “quel” since sequel is based on the Latin sequi meaning to follow.)

  21. Masquers
    11:13 am on July 26th, 2012

    Belle Starr: Ready to blur-away!

  22. Belle Starr
    11:24 am on July 26th, 2012

    Rose: will you look in your desk drawer and fast? It is crowded in here and my four-legged is complaining that I’m stepping on her ears.

  23. Princess Sam
    11:26 am on July 26th, 2012

    Melanie and The Royals, we had that storm overnight and have sent it on to you. I wasnt scared but my girl was. I calmed her down.

  24. OleyHowlers
    11:48 am on July 26th, 2012

    We are supposed to have severe storms here too. But we don’t think tornadoes are in the forecast like they are for Melanie and T&G.
    Siber, IT is one of Momand Pop’s favorite books. They are still terrified of sewer grates, balloons, and clowns. Especially CLOWNS!

    B: Quite confusing (but interesting) Where’s that cawfee?

    I call it the Backstory.

    I have been taking video of the thousand or so swallows hanging out in our yard. Try to get up a link later if any of them turn out.

    BSD, we don’t know what that means, but it made Mom hide under her desk!

    Bear: Can you ask a question regarding the confusion?

    Rose!…Have you started reading the ARC?…snort!…I remember when Staff got the ARC and she read it during those stressful doctor office visits…wheeze!…You should read it before your thunder and lightning sessions…sneeze!…Whatever you do, HURRY UP so that you can send it to Me!Me!Me!…heh!

  31. Rose
    1:20 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Rio! I am currently on Chapter 5 in the ARC. Interesting developments…. I am still your valentine?

  32. Melanie
    1:30 pm on July 26th, 2012

    I forgot the Ghost Buster spray! But, no worries, that particular ghostie either really liked big black dogs or was scared of big black dogs.

    I’ll post a picture of the stone after I get the camera out from the car. I had so much to carry in I forgot it. Patsy’s drool towels, water, dish, leash, our milk, 1/2 and1/2, the GPS thingy, jeeze louise it’s worse than I used to carry along when the guys were little.

    Princess Sam, you are a brave canine!

    OleyHowlers and Barb&MP I will have to go back and read last night’s comments. Sounds like bad news for one and good news for the other.

    So stone picture later, plus what happened during the 15 hours of being a dead guy. Those stories are not related to each other. snicker

    B: Thinking this was what Admin meant when he said: “it mangles the Latin roots”

    O.Howlers: Does your mom know Pennywise has his own facebookie page?
    Can’t read your link…it’s too much for the heart to bear. What’s going on of late? So many of these kind of stories.

  36. BearSpiritDog
    2:04 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Melanie: We are thinking your are fortunate to have had Patsy along on your search for IT. Who knows what would have happened otherwise!
    Looking forward to hearing more about YSAS…with pictures!

    Sammie is 60 miles to the north so she is only getting rain. She won’t have to protect anyone.

    Wose: Can you get this envelop off my tongue. At fiwst I thought it tasted good but I’m not so sure anymow.

  40. Barb & Maggie
    2:46 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Melanie, There is a huge cemetery in Richmond, VA. that has a life size iron statue of a Newfie that protects a little girl’s grave. It is a big tourist attraction, with a lot of graves of soldiers who fought in the “War of Northern Aggression” as it is called down there.

    August 3rd is last work day. I might have been confusing by saying 4 days. Will be working today, tomorrow and next Thurs and Fri, then done. Party time!

  41. OleyHowlers
    2:53 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Woah! Aunt MollysMom, we can see that storm on the weather map and it is UGLY! Take cover!
    Barb, Mom’s last day is next Friday also; only problem is that she has to return 2 weeks later.

  42. SnowBella

    Poor Belle Starr, hope you get that thing off your tongue!

    I have yet to get the camera out of the car. I have moved the flower plants, chairs and such inside. Still waiting for more info on the storms.

    Funny . . YSAS had a great time! The main actors actually rehearse before taping. Sounds good to me. YSAS did an excellent portrayal of a dead guy. Everyone knew his name by the end of the evening. One of the makeup people forgot to do something with the wound on the back of his head and left him too long. By the time they said he could have a break he couldn’t move! His head was stuck on the railing. He got fixed and does not have a railing stuck to his head anymore. All I know is that the episode is not the pilot.

    Dan decided he wants to move his recliner back and forth from the west wing to the living room. That’s not happening!

  48. BearSpiritDog

    4:59 pm on July 26th, 2012

  50. Belle Starr
    5:11 pm on July 26th, 2012

    We are under a severe thunderstorm watch right now. The air feels like a tight shirt – it just presses on you when you go outside. There is a sense of imminent happenings. If this was a movie, there would be shark music playing in the background..

    Kat: My two-legged claims to have met you one her travels. I wouldn’t know. She never takes me anywhere. Humph. She tells me that we would have fun together. Can you blur to Rose’s house to help with Smooching duties. Once you get here, we can ask Rose if it is okay for you to stay. If she says no, we can use those fail proof techniques that can change any two-legged’s mind.

  59. Kat
    6:17 pm on July 26th, 2012

    I can come but I have not yet learned to blur. And Mommy says a very bad storm is heading our way! Yikes!

  60. Belle Starr
    6:26 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Kat: My four-legged can get you. She will hold you by the scruff which is kind of embarrassing, but I won’t laugh if you promise not to laugh when she does it with me. This is another reason I should get my drivers license.

    Mama is tying a plastic scarf under her chin as we speak. It must mean she is one her way! Rose can’t say no to our efforts to get you here, can she?

  61. SnowBella
    6:33 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Oh, dear. It appears that one, if not two of the Smoochers have gone amuck. Unfortunately, they are the two that have a mailing address in Willow.

    Rose and Howlers: I apologize in advance for anything they might do. I blame AJ for spoiling them. Rotten.

    Kat’s mom: In case there is any concern, Luna is a very accomplished blurring having learned from the best, Wolfie. Her grasp is firm, but gentle.

  62. Melanie
    6:47 pm on July 26th, 2012

    The sky is becoming dark. I am listening for any thunder. Nothing yet.

    Right now it looks like the OleyHowlers, OTAS&GLAD and YSAS should take cover!!

  69. Rose
    7:25 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Lots of dark sky, rain, lightning, and thunder. The accommodations under the bed are non-existent !

    Kat, whatever you do, don’t bite any of the lightning bolts tomorrow. I may ask the Prof to take you back home after he drops me off.

  70. Barb & Maggie
    7:26 pm on July 26th, 2012

    We wouldn’t mind a little rain storm, but all we get is damaging wind stoms with no rain. We are on the final countdown. Everytime the wind blows Barb worries about more repairs to make, more sticks to pick up. We are so done. New house has 3 little trees, thank dog.

    Could not read Oley’s post about serial killers.

    Barb’s nephew put a really nice tribute to his dog Bella on his facebook page. We tried to copy and paste it here, but couldn’t figure out how to do it. She needed a couple of tissues when she read it.

  73. Melanie
    7:31 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Just talked to T&G’s mom. She’s off the phone and such until this thing is over. We should be getting something soon. No wind, atmosphere very heavy. Texted YSAS to be safe and watch the radar. He is out and about in the city.

    I believe he went to see The Avengers.

    Belle Starr, why is your two legged wearing a plastic scarf? Did I read that wrong?

    Downloading the London Olympics app into Dan’s iPaw. Going slowly.

  80. Melanie
    8:15 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Hmmm, sky turning red. Radar doesn’t show any really bad cells though.

  81. SnowBella
    8:18 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Melanie: I think Belle Starr was referring to her four-legged mama tying one of those plastic scarves around her head like old women used to do in rain storms. I haven’t heard if Luna has returned safe with Kat by the scruff. Here’s hoping.

  82. Melanie
    8:23 pm on July 26th, 2012

    Thank you Bella for clearing that up. I was beginning to wonder about you.

    Red is gone from the sky. As always the storms withdrew to the south. At least the major nasty parts. We are getting some rain. Looks like a certain Royal Duo will be getting more of the storms.

    App just finished downloading. I’m off to bed.

    Back to the old computer, which has been repaired…this just as we were getting used to Vista.

    Good news on the wireless front…the Kindle has been set up and registered with Amazon. This is very cool!
    B: You were right…since we already had an account with Amazon we are good to go.
    It’s the older version of Kindle, but we don’t care it’s new to us.
    O.Howlers: I believe you said your mom has one of these?

    Royals, Melanie, Howlers, Rose and everyone in the path of the storm stay out of harm’s way…safe under the bed until it passes.

    Rose: You have quite a crowd there at your place. This could turn into a party!
    All your Plunderer friends will be thinking of you in the am.
    Big Bear Hugs from your friend on the Island.

    Good night to some, Good day to Liz – Bear

    Good Morning Rose!

    We love you and will be thinking of you tomorrow (today since you are reading this in the morning) We are all with you, but sometimes I think Masquers is the only sane one with you keeping you company. The girls can be a bit daffy, but I am sure they are good cheer.

    good night to everyone else

    Rose – we are coming out from under the bed to send you our best too. Everything seems to be calmed down now, storm wise , but we are still planning to beg to get on the big bed with Mama and Dad. We will just act scared and keep putting our front paws up on the bed until Mama gets tired of it…make that -takes pity on us, and lifts us up there. Then we start taking over the whole bed. tee hee.

    See all of you tomorrow. Good night.

    SiberH: Care my very, special, best takes many different forms. Sometimes it is petting her when she needs it, letting her pet us when we need it, making sure her hair doesn’t burst into flames, tucking her OZ quilt around her, Masquers playing jazz with the Professor until all hours, and distracting her from anything too serious. Plus, have you ever taken a bolt for someone? It’s not pretty. I’m missing some valuable taste buds. It was worth it. I’d do it again.

    Good Friday Morning All!

    Thank you all for your love and support! I hope everyone in the path of those storms made it through safe and sound, without losing any power.

    Molly’sMom, are you and Sammie anywhere near Elmira, NY. The news reports that a tornado passed through, and the town is flooded.

    Getting ready to wake up the Prof. I have to be at the hospital at 7:30 (yawn!) to get ready for the lightning bolts.

    I appreciate your hugs, love, and pug kisses!

    Hi, Rose!
    Are we too early for the Friday blog? It’s after nine on the East Coast.
    Chet, Spence and Admin…where are you?

  112. SnowBella

    Morning, BSD!

    For some reason I keep thinking if Tyb when I think of Elmira. I hope all our east coasters are safe.

    Good morning all.
    Kat apologized that she never made it to Wose’s. She was hiding and nobody could find her when Luna stopped by to pick her up. We hope Luna made it back to Wose’s alright with those awful storms. We were so busy taking care of Mom, who was scared, that we were not very good hosts, we think. Last evening’s storms were very bad, yet not as bad as Monday’s.
    Kat is very worried about all of her old friends up in Elmira. That is where she is from.
    Wose, hope all goes well.

    The storm was not as fierce when it passed through here. It did blast everyone out of bed and it did have 50 mph winds, but it looks like it got even worse as it went east in New York and Pennsylvania.

    I wonder if the storm affected the Cape. Where is Chet???

    Wow! Thanks Mollypop’s Mom.

    Rio: I would be happy to show everyone how to make pie crust. It isn’t difficult. My brother recently made pie crust for the first time using the recipe and instructions that I put in the Dishlicker’s Cookbook: “Cathartic Pie Crust.”

    That must be it…power-outages. We will feel better when Everyone checks in: Chet, Melanie, Royals, Wookie, Kirby, all you East-Coasters.
    Rose: Check back in asap.

    B: Pie crust has been a challenge for many years. Any tips would be most welcome.

  120. BearSpiritDog
    12:04 pm on July 27th, 2012

    B: I’ll check out my Dishlicker’s Cookbook. If your brother, a first time pie crust maker, can do it I dare say so can we.

    viewing our pet in the casket we can select a prior burial that may help begin the grieving process. we owners can choose not to have a service, while others prefer to have a religious ceremony conducted by a clergy member. their caring staff will accommodate the pet owner in every possible way.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
