Welcome to another 2017 edition of Snippets!!
I'm changing the format of Snippets around these parts. They will no longer be relegated to the traditional Wednesday as they've always been. That way I don't have to feel weird about posting on a Friday or Sunday, like I am right now.
Because, yanno, why not?
So much going through my head right now. And all so very politically motivated. How am I to organize it all so it doesn't derail mid-post? With a (potentially) one-time return of... SNIPPET WEDNESDAY!!!
Marty is making a liar of me. Yesterday, he called me "speed demon" regarding my blog posting rate of late. I told him it was because I was forgoing Snippet Wednesdays in favor of individual posts for topics so that I could get myself back up above a 50% posting rate this month (to that point, I'd only posted four times in 19 days). So what am I doing today? Posting a Snippet Wednesday. It wasn't supposed to be. But it has become one. Oy.
Hi, I'm Kappy, and I'm a blogger. Got these ideas here in my head. I'm writin' and postin' and makin' friends. Some say I'm best in the midwest [ed. note: there is no validity to this claim]. Singin' yippie-ai-yo-kai-yay. It's Kapgar's Snippet Wednesday! Yippie-ai-yo-kai-yay. Saddle up and take it in. Learn what it means to be unhinged on Snip-pet Wednes-day!!!!

Welcome to a special holiday edition of Snippet Wednesday! I hope you're feeling festive!
Lean back, kick up your feet, and settle in. It's Snippet Wednesday!
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call ... Snippet Wednesday.
Welcome to Late Night with Snippet Wednesday! I am your host, Jimmy Apgar (it seems like all night-time talk show hosts are named Jimmy these days, so why not), and let's get right to it, shall we?
You know it's bad when you type up five Snippets, reread them, and immediately delete the whole post because it's just. that. bad.
But I am going to see Godzilla tonight so that makes me feel somewhat better.
Welcome to a bricky good edition of Snippet Wednesday! As in LEGO bricky good!
How about a few quick Snippets this fine Wednesday?
After the downer that was yesterday's post, how about something a little lighter? Lightly Snippety, in fact.
I know I tend to theme some of my Snippet Wednesday snippets. Sometimes very loosely. But I try. This time, the theme is pretty obvious. And, heck, I can even tie it back to the title of this post in terms of the initials.
Figure it out yet?
I'm back! I'm back! And just in time for Snippet Wednesday.
I find it funny that I had nothing for a Snippet Wednesday yesterday until, of course, I wrote a regular, single-topic post. Then the ideas came flowing. Go fig, eh?
To make up for it, and to not lose out on those ideas, I present you with Snippet Thursday: The Reckoning!
Hey you! Yeah, you! Come over here. I got something for ya. I think you're gonna like it. Yeah, you will. Trust me. Would I lie to you? C'mon, take a look. You know you wanna.
I almost didn't write this Snippet Wednesday. You ever have post ideas ready to go but just no desire to write it up? That was me today. Alas, I'm far too wedded to this virtual space to not do it and it would be an awful waste of ideas. So enjoy!
Hey there! Thank you for taking these next few minutes to peruse through this parade of nonsense I lovingly call Snippet Wednesday. I hope you enjoy.
First off, a big ol' Happy Birthday to the World Wide Web! It's 25 years old. Well, in concept it's 25 years old. In actual execution, the Web didn't hit us all until really about 1993 or 1994. But still. On this day in 1989, Tim Berners-Lee came up with the idea of the World Wide Web and shared it with his boss who authorized him working on it as a side project from his regular job. Cool stuff!
Without it, you'd not be reading this Snippet Wednesday. And Lord only knows what I'd be doing as my career. And hobby.
Is it strange that once I took the pressure off myself by not numbering my Snippet Wednesday posts, it has actually become easier -- at least so far -- to write them consistently? Heck, I've done a Snippet Wednesday every week save for the very first Wednesday of the year, which happened to be New Year's Day.
And here's another one for ya!
Welcome to yet another fine, but cold, Snippet Wednesday. Bundle up. It's gonna be nasty out there.
It is currently 39 degrees out (that's in Fahrenheit) and snow is starting to melt away slowly but, hopefully, surely. Katie reported seeing grass. Sure, it was brown and muddy, but it was grass.
Let's celebrate with a Snippet Wednesday, shall we?
Welcome to Snippet Wednesday. At least I think it's Wednesday. It is, isn't it? I haven't been to work a single day this week and have completely lost track of time. Help me out here.
Welcome to another fine Snippet Wednesday. Please keep your arms inside the vehicle at all times.
Welcome to a Snippet Wednesday with a somewhat better than last Snippet Wednesday forecast... the Polar Vortex may finally be leaving us... for a second time! Temperatures are in the positive range with the promise of 30 degrees this Friday. Accompanied with snow, sure, but it can't always be perfect, right?
Welcome to Snippet Wednesday. The drink cart will be around shortly.
Greetings, Starfighter! You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Snippet Wednesday armada.
Welcome to my first Snippet Wednesday of 2014!!
Merry Christmas, y'all! Hope you are all spending the day with someone(s) special and not actually reading my blog. Although I won't lie and say I wouldn't be honored if you did read my blog on Christmas. I'd be totally honored.
Anyway, here's a stocking's worth of Snippet Wednesday to tide you through the Yule. No coal. Promise. Do you have any idea how much coal costs? Kids should be happy to get it.
AHHHHHHH!!!! This is the second-to-last Snippet Wednesday of 2013!!!!! GAH!! Make the time stop!!!
(just imagine what next week's freakout is gonna be like)
Welcome to Snippet Wednesday, fortified with 18 kajillion vitamins and minerals and an important part of a nutritious breakfast... and lunch... and dinner. Or not. Don't quote me on that. These claims have yet to be verified by the FDA.
The year is quickly winding down if the date on this post and the numbering of this edition of Snippet Wednesday is any indication. Wow! Where did it go? 2014 will mark Nathan's third calendar year of life on this planet. What the what?
How about I just get on with the Snippets before I depress myself anymore?
Let's just skip ahead from 2013.43, past 2013.44 and 2013.45 (because I was on vacation), and land square on what should be the 46th Snippet Wednesday of the year. I hope you took some motion sickness pills. This could get a little rocky.
