meleesmall.jpgThe Monday Melee is a Fracas project. You’re invited to participate. Get details and see the participant list here.

The Misanthropic: Name something you absolutely hate.
Partisanship and political wrangling too often get in the way of finding feasible solutions to pressing problems.

The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent, or bogus.
Proposed funding cuts for public television threaten the availability of age-appropriate educational programs for young children. Free alternatives to commercial programming are rare, and cutting nearly a quarter of the budget for public television puts these programs at risk.

The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.
I wish the grocery store in my neighborhood carried more organic products.

The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.
The coach of my son’s basketball team is incredibly generous with his time.

The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.
I stand up for what I believe in.

The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.
I’d like a magical, self-cleaning house.

    Well I knew the comment already here was going to be about the magical self cleaning house. I want one of those reeeaaallly badly. It goes right along with my agreeing with LindaC’s answer about hating sloth. A magical self cleaning house would certainly help me be able to live with those people who unfortunately don’t hate sloth as much as I do!

    Well, when I figure out how to get one of these, I’ll let you know. Since I live with a small colony of sloth-like creatures, it would really come in handy.

    Nanotechnology will help in the future, I reckon 🙂 Or perhaps some intellegent robots…who knows
