"U" is for Unremarkable

Underwear?  Boxer briefs.

Ultimate Fighting Championship? Uninterested.

Uranus: Still a planet, right?

Ural:  Utilitarian Russian motorcycle.

Unholy Hunger:  Gritty detective-noir psychological thriller debut novel by Heather James.

Unmolested:  Better than overrestored.

Utilities and Infrastructure?  Yes, that was one topic idea, but I don't hate my readers.

Uninvited?  Cool song.  I liked it better when it was called Kashmir and performed by Zeppelin.

Unlamented:  That was an idea for a super-short story for today, but it went nowhere.

Ulysses?  Yes, it's on my Kindle; no, I haven't read it.

Unfortunately, for the second time in this here A to Z Challenge I am completely uninspired, unenergetic and unable to make more than a feeble stab at the letter of the day.  I apologize if you take umbrage, but on the bright side, I'm leaving more of your time unconsumed and unwasted.
Until tomorrow...


  1. Kashmir is a classic that should remain untouched.

    1. I know, right? Maybe Alanis's song isn't a exact copy, but you can definitely hear the Zep in there.

  2. Pretty clever for having no inspiration. You even had the presence of mind to plug a fellow Writers of Kern member's book. Reputation unmarred, Jerry. xoA

  3. Understandable. Your unusual style has not gone unnoticed. :)

  4. My unremark: Understandable to be uninspired by the time U is upon us.

  5. I could say "unintentional." But your post was very intentional.

    Be cool, and stay warm.

  6. You are all undoubtedly the best ever.

  7. Made me chuckle. Couldn't think of a "u" word for that. :-)

  8. Hey, I like utilities and infrastructure.

    But then again, I'm a civil engineer too. :)

    1. Ah, Suzi, we Civil engineers are a strange lot, aren't we? Literary Engineer, I love it. I like your style and I'm digging your movie theme and look forward to exploring your blog. I need to find out if anyone, anywhere has ever managed to write a novel with a Civil engineer as the main character...

    2. I can't name any off-hand either. Although I think I may have seen one or two. I let you know if I remember any.

      That is one of my goals someday. To write some kind of thriller/mystery with an civil engineer. Woman of course. Maybe that takes place on a construction site. Haven't put much thought into it yet, and I've been doing more writing of young adult. But someday I'll maybe get to that.

    3. If you do, can she (the engineer) have a male sidekick? :)

    1. Hi, PV. Thanks for supplying "unwanted," since I forgot. Enjoyed your "V" post, and thanks for stopping by.

  10. Enjoyed this one, too! Think I'm going to have to become a follower...!

  11. If you'd follow over this post, you're easy to please! ;-)

  12. On the contrary, Jer, though unsensational from your perspective, your post is neither uncreative nor uninspired. Nice job, as usual.

  13. Thanks, Dennis. I got a lot of help from commenters this time around.
