appy polly loggies

Filed under: musings — freeformkatia @ 1:38 pm

I used this term today. Do you remember it? From A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I honestly can’t remember when I last read the book, but I’m guessing it was sometime in high school. For whatever reason, that particular phrase has stuck in my head and everytime I say “my apologies,” I hear “appy polly loggies” in my head.  Ya’ll are going to start thinking I’m really nuts, given the insight you’ve had into what goes on in my head this week. HAH! If you only REALLY knew.

While driving with Richard one day I let loose with a stream of  my thoughts. Outloud. He made me stop after 5 minutes. I don’t think he was prepared for how my brain works.

You should try it some minute: just say everything that comes into your head outloud. Someone is bound to tell you to stop fairly quickly.



  1. I constantly have “a pain in my gulliver”. Don’t remember the “appy polly loggies” bit.
    Try suddenly lifting the front of your shirt, exposing only your stomach mind you, and point to your belly button while joyously exclaiming “Belly Button!”. I’ve discovered that that’ll stop a room cold in a nanosecond. Best done only among friends and relatives – the boardroom is not an appropriate forum. :)

  2. I don’t remember “appy polly loggies”, at all. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve seen that movie, though.

    I’ve trained myself very hard to not say everything that comes into my head out loud. I used to say every 3 or 4 thoughts out loud and people wouldn’t understand the connection between my thoughts (although the connection was perfectly clear to me). I should try just saying everything that comes into my head. I suspect my husband would have the same reaction as Richard did. :)

  3. Helloooo, we are back in business with the computer and I had a chance to view the past postings and comments ….. you all crack me up! And here I thought I was strange when talking to myself, well – an active imagination is very creative. Just look at the children all enrapt by a treestump, they are all thinkers. Expect great things from them!
    Never read Clockwork Orange, must have a look in the attic, hope the play on words won’t totally confuse me!?
    Love, Mom
