Carnival of the Yakezie #50, The Quickening

The Quickening

Wow, I can’t believe we are almost 2 month into the year 2011 already!  Time truly is flying!  Theme of this Yakezie Carnival is quickness.  So with respect to time and speed, I’ve chosen to put the contributors in my carnival in the order that I received them.

Okay, now that the theme of the Yakezie is defined, what exactly do I mean my “The Quickening”?  Well it’s actually a concept from a now older movie called “Highlander“, and today it translates to mean  “Git-R-Done”  with speed!  All joking aside, it means hurry the hell up, or accelerate now.

And now finally you may be wondering, “What is Yakezie“?  Well, Yakezie is a network of many of the best financial bloggers.  The network is unique in that it contributes it’s earnings collected from donors and voluntary contributions by members to charities (currently scholarships).  It’s truly a selfless endeavor that I’m proud to be a member of!

So now on the great lineup of articles submitted to the Yakezie Carnival!

  1. You did indeed put this together in a hurry, D.!

    Quickening also means the day an expecting mom feels the baby move for the first time.

    Just a little OB Doc trivia for you!

    • Thanks, yeah I kind of rushed this, but at least it out there!

      Thanks for the word meaning info, I had no idea Quickening was a real word 🙂 I think the movie must have borrowed it from the medical field.

    • I honestly thought about calling it the Phoenix edition, but it wasn’t out of circulation long enough for the title 🙂

      Thanks for submitting!!! I’m glad it’s rolling again!
