Taboo is such a funny word. Taboo...that which must be wrong because we dare not discuss it. A bit like George Carlin's take on the word sacred... Thanks to the current gf, I have been able to explore some unique taboos lately. For one, she and I dance...and anyone reading my writing realizes that the Genesis sing "I Can't Dance" was written for me. She has me dancing to cuts that usually involve certain thoughts going through my head such as, This isn't music! Okay that is really not a taboo...but watching me dance likely should be, as it must scare many. The fact that we are dancing at a swingers club, however...more to the point. The fact that this particular place is quickly becoming a regular hangout on our non-kid [Read more...]
Thought of falling through the cracks in the road no longer frighten me. Funny what a new, fresh and good relationship does. Changes the entire outlook. Reminds me why Nicholson wanted to be a better man...for her, of course. She does that to me. My heart has become hers. Every second thought is of her...and this is a conservative estimate. I no longer sleep quite right unless she is beside me. Alas, as I write this, I am across town and in my own bed. Half-empty..half-full...whatever...would be warmer and more comfortable if she were in it with me. My eyes are half-shirted and I hear the beckon of sleep, but there is that missing presence. Approaching my 30th month using this site for my writing and it seems I have finally found the [Read more...]
Play...what a wonderful word. Should this not be a word that defines life? So many words are thrown around that life should be about...without much thought behind them. Words like "tradition"... "proper"... "etiquette"... "blame". All lovely words, but play is better to define things. In fact, all those other words are restraints in comparison. Now, the benefits of restraints aside...and yes, euphemism...why do we follow the ideas set out by those before us? Why do we simply accept that this is how we do things and not think about it for ourselves? There is something to be said for experience...and it is one thing to listen when someone tells you not to run out into traffic...quite another when they tell you not to cross the street [Read more...]
Yes...this is what I sound like. I realize that 120% of you don't care what I sound like, but just thought I would attempt something a bit new...
Press play... You know that point when you need her? That point where you are sitting there alone in the quiet and all you can think of is her and what she does to you? The thoughts of how you simply want to be near her regardless of what she is doing and where she is and why she is doing it...the thoughts of how she drives you to do the unthinkable all in the hopes of making her smile or laugh...the memories of the last time you were with her seeming soooooo long ago and knowing the next time can not be soon enough? That point where you cannot imagine a future without her smile greeting you in the morning and kissing her to say good night...where you know that you can tell her every last detail of your day without hesitation and, [Read more...]
Look what I caught!
Yesterday...and due to issues in the real world I am a day late posting this...would have been Douglas Adams' 61st birthday International Towel Day is only 71 days away...actually, 72 when I'm typing this but after another rough work day, I'm half enough in the bag to know better than to post this while I'm writing it. Okay...who am I kidding...72 days. Douglas passed away on May 11, 2001...Douglas Noel Adams...the lead Hitchhiker. As such, May 25...two weeks after his passing, has been deemed International Towel Day. ...so, you're all invited to join us that day at the restaurant at the end of the universe. Just make certain that you know where your towel is. We'd love you to join us. Remember to carry your towel on May 25...of [Read more...]
This post is legend...wait for it...dairy. I have said it before and will say it again...without the writers and NPH, How I Met Your Mother is a horrible sitcom. Perhaps we will just let Barney tell you in his own blog... ...part of what makes Barney so awesome is how they have created a website for each of those bizarro ones he mentions...the fact they actually have a blog for the character (see above)...and how they have built books off of the character.
