If you need an explanation for the blog name, you should go read a dictionary. Better yet, start writing out the dictionary. I can’t be the only one that tried that… For those who are unwilling, here is my explanation of the blog name. (Now excuse me while I go count the pennies in my parents’ giant crayon piggy bank.)


“A”: used as a function word before singular nouns when the referent is unspecified  and before number collectives and some numbers

In this case I am your singular noun. And yes, I am in fact single. Ladies.


“Machinate”: to contrive or plot, especially artfully or with evil purpose

Eeeeeeeeevillllll! – Mermaid Man

So maybe not so much the evil part. We can leave that out, but the rest is my chronic and natural state. Always trying to plan with ingenuity. Always the long game. Always.


“Ramble”: to grow in a random, unsystematic fashion

Despite my best efforts God will invariably humble my plotting. This blog will follow that path and all the machinations along the way.

Ramble on,
