No Pens, Pencils, Knives or Scissors?

Well, one doesn't need pens or pencils to write a blog, does one? Or knives and scissors for that matter...though those might be purely allegorical - you know, dice the words, cut through unnecessary content, and chop down the paragraphs to proper portions.

Still, this title is perfect for my blog. My dad is my writing mentor, you see, and he invented the "No pens, pencils, knives or scissors!" rule for his kids. The story behind it became my very first post, and thus was born a blog.

Still, you might ask, well, what is this blog about? What's the brand? Why, it's Hillaryous, of course - humorous anecdotes, stories about the joys and misadventures in raising children, tales from my childhood, odes to nature, occasional high horse rants on things that really get my goat, and regular reflections on faith.
