A to Z Post - P by Matthew

This post is brought to you by one of the April A to Z Challenge co-hosts: Matthew MacNish.

I was hoping to highlight some of my favorite posts I'd seen on the letter P, but then I realized it will take all day for me to read them.

So instead, I'll just list a few cool things that begin with the letter P, and then maybe mention a couple A to Z Participants.

Pirates - ARHG! Plus - booty.

Poetry - Pentameter even.

Prose - Particularly creative writing.

Pulled Pork - Because, yum.

Pizza - Same.

Paris - I've never been, but they say it's wonderful.

Paladins - Because they're really nice guys.

People - We make the world go round.

Pillow - Because that moment when your head finally hits it ...

And here is one of my favorite blogs from the challenge whose post about today's letter P, is great:

Kristen is a teacher, a writer, a fan of great literature, and a lover of all things revolutionary, so here's her post: Please Don't Dim the Lights.

  1. All very nice Ps. Well, not the pulled pork one since I'm a veggie but I do think pigs pre pork pulling are pretty cute :)

  4. These are some terrific P Words! Especially pizza and pulled pork, yum. I made pulled pork with root beer sauce last night for dinner. Maybe I should've saved it for P day! Good thing there are some leftovers for my lunch today. :) :)

    Hope you're having a great week, Matthew, and happy A to Z!!

  7. Nice P word list. I especially like, pork, pizza and Paris. I'm trying to convince people that pheromone is a great P word...but for some reason...(;

  9. People always make P interesting!
    Also a great "P" is P for Paros - an island in the Greek Aegean sea. Beautiful!

  16. I'll take some pulled pork (we have our own smoker and make this rather frequently for big parties) with a side of pizza and a splash of pirates. Thanks!

  17. PARIS - oui oui! I am loving the A to Z Challenge, even though I know the coming days will challenge me!
    By the way, my "P" post today is the fabulous Dolly Parton - with a video included!

  18. Hi Lee and Matthew - great thoughts .. Pirates of Penzance .. and Pizza - don't eat it often, but pulled pork - probably a good thing it's not around too often .. and Paris - must visit after reading D.G. Hudson's Rain Forest Writing about Paris sights .. wonderful read ... and I'm off to visit .. Kristen's blog ..

    Cheers Hilary

  20. We need to have a big A to Z pulled pork and pizza party when the Challenge is over. Sounds like I'm not the only one who loves those foods.

  21. Paris is beautiful and well worth a visit. Loved sitting on a cafe, sipping coffee/wine and people watching. Heaven.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Now I'm getting hungry. Pizza sounds just about right, but wouldn't go with my plan to eat healthier.:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Pizza with a paladin in Paris = perfect.

  24. @Lee

    Pulled Pork at a Pig Pickin'! A Southern favorite, as I'm sure you know!

    (I just don't care for that North Carolina vinegar! Beer makes a much better basting brew!)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great Ps. (I was going to say you were a great P-er, but that didn't sound right.) I especially like Pillow.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My husband has a book of Pirate poetry that would have been perfect for today.

  27. Visit my blog, I used "P" for prompts, using a line from "Heart of Darkness," so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Excellent choice of P words!

    ReplyDelete
  31. great choice of 'p' words especially the pulled pork but only if it is BBQ :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Very interesting. Will there be an A to Z challenge for May?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pizza, pulled pork, pillows-yay! But especially Paris...everyone needs to see Paris!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love Paris. My husband would agree with you on the pulled pork!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Pepperoni pizza perhaps? (I jest -- I like mine loaded with toppings.)

  36. Pulled pork? No thanks, but Pizza? Yum! :)

    About one month ago, I started making my own little mini pizzas at home too, so you know I'm in big trouble -- gotta watch those pounds before they creep up on me before I can day "D is for Diet" during next year's A to Z challenge, lol.

  37. I love pulled pork, Paris, and prose, not necessarily in that order. Also pecans, and peaches.

    P was my favourite letter since my theme is 'Paris Etc.'

    I did check out Kristen's post.

  38. @Hilary, thanks for the mention of my Paris posts!

  40. @ photomom - I'm sorry, but there will not be an A to Z challenge for May. Once a year is enough, don't you think?

    ReplyDelete
  41. You mean we don't want to start doing A to Z every month? Can you imagine? It takes me a year to recover from April!

  42. Ack, no, no A to Z every month. I think it will take me a year to recover.

    On the flip side, I wrote about pirates, too.
