AtoZ Blogging Challenge. A Hop For Those With A Voracious Appetite For Fun


The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out

When someone says they have a voracious ANYTHING, that makes me stop and pay attention. The word conjures up images of Tom Jones and his eating habits



or Tyrannosaurs Rex and his.




If someone tells me they're a voracious reader I picture them buried under a pile of books . . . some of them mine. Dream on, Lee!

So what are you voracious about in your life? I'm thinking I should go gobble up something about now.  I've given myself a voracious appetite.


Here's the List and the people below bring you this voracious hop:
The Madlab Post (Nicole Ayers)
Tossing It Out (Arlee Bird)
Amlokiblogs (Damyanti Biswas)

  3. I'm voracious thinker. I'm always thinking, always pondering, always riddling and unriddling mysteries and facts of life. Even asleep I'm discussing something.

  5. Well,

    WIth me it's all about beauty... of any kind. Flowers, palm trees swaying in a subtle breeze, a child's laughter, a puppy wagging his tail, a moonlit night ... that sort of thing.

  6. Voracious. It's such an aggressive yet poetic word. Commands attention. I'm voracious about chocolate and sweet things. Currently, I'm holding a daily STA (sweet things anonymous) meeting each morning to remind myself not to eat everything sweet. :-)

    1. If you need an intervention call me. I'll get that sweet stuff out of your house for you. :-)

    1. I'm getting hungry just posting about this word.

  10. I had a bet going with myself that you'd be posting about the word vivacious. I lost, but I don't know which me. When I think of voracious, food certainly does come to mind as well as my dog wolfing down her meal.

    1. Vivacious is a prettier word. Thanks. I think you gave me a compliment, Bish.

  11. Voracious t-rex? Haha, I like that image.

    ReplyDelete
  12. that t-rex picture is funny - I guess I am a voracious reader, though lately it is more a voracious sleeper, I can't get enough! Weird, that doesn't really feel like it makes sense. Voracious appetite for sleep? hmmmmm

  27. I'm rather weirdly voracious about TV and movies. I watch all the time, although even with a zillion satellite channels, sometimes I can't find anything good to watch. But that's okay - I'll watch bad stuff. :P

  28. I think this is a fun word and I love the images you conjured up in my mind. :)
