BANDAGED FOOT

BANDAGED FOOT

This foot bandage cramps my style,

I haven’t showered a while…

I’ll find me some chert*

To scrape off the dirt,

While wearing a very brave smile!

–Jonathan Caswell

* chert…a sedimentary rock sometimes used in early tool manufacture to produce knives or cutting edges.

TIME SLOWDOWN

TIME SLOWDOWN

Time has slowed to a crawl

Blogging with you-all…

I still have time

To think of rhyme,

Before my relief comes to call!

From DenialVille to the Now via My Urban Fairytale

Jonathan Caswell:

KNOWING AND DOING…NOT ALWAYS THE SAME THING. HELP THIS ONE FIND HERSELF AND YOU!

Originally posted on lovetheatrics:

I was drunk on the beauty of the sky. So much so that I nearly crashed my bike (it’s a bicycle not a motorbike, so chill). A rainbow kissed sunset. One heady cocktail. As…is…my life right now. As has been for a wee while….. A whirlwind extravaganza of being DEDICATED to being in the present moment, with one step in the future of course…my limbs extricating themselves to a past that was comfortable if slightly in DenialVille and my mind caught on the wind of some ridiculous urban fairytale. Which is now over. I think. It’s difficult extricating yourself from a fairytale that you’ve pretty much written yourself. 

A fairytale that you delighted in falling into, where the concept of forever was again, an attainable notion and cynicism was left at the forest door. A fairytale that of course implodes when you ask for something tangible, when you invite reality in, that’s…

“A CLASSIC”!!!!!!

I had related earlier that four years I lived near the river, which is approximately seven kilometers away from where I stay nowadays. During that period, my daily life was inconvenienced with the near lack of electric source for appliances. All I had was a handy battery-operated transistor radio to entertain myself.

The first few weeks after I relocated near the national highway, where electricity was present, I was so eager to switch on my old stereo component with an even older separate portable DVD player attached to it. With a 25-watt double speakers, I was ready to rock and roll. :)

Naturally, I was not the only person who wanted loud music blaring at full volume. My nearest neighbor’s teenage son held the title when it came to disturbing the peace through music.

Imagine my surprise one day when I heard the song I was listening to created a…

Thank you so much to Courtney-chan from Proverbs31teen for nominating me for the Sunshine award!

The rules are…

  • Give 5 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the blogger’s five questions, and create your own.
  • Nominate five other bloggers.

Ok…so my five facts are…

1. I am not allowed to text. At all. And one time I told someone that and they told me never mind about getting my number and being friends. Stoopid, right?!?

2. I love, love, love the cold. I know that’s stupid, because, duh, I live in Texas where everyone wears short shorts and flip flops, but winter is always my favorite seasons. I want to move to New England some day so I can bundle up and not look weird…I love sweaters and fluffy boots…

3. Recently I’ve become obsessed with that TV show Monk. My new dream career is to be a homicide detective and write…

CHICKEN SOUP STRAIGHT

CHICKEN SOUP STRAIGHT

(from the can)

A pop-top can is fine,

When I want to dine…

Drinking water

As I “oughter”

To dilute chicken noodle brine!

-

The dinner faster rolls

Not chasing noodles in bowls…

Straight from the can,

That, yes Ma’am,

Concentrates the whole!

San Diego Finds

Jonathan Caswell:

A COLORFUL GAL FINDS MORE COLOR…AND BARGAINS! LOVE ALL THESE THINGS ON HER—ESPECIALLY THE BLACK AND RED BLOUSES! (IF i MAY SAY SO!)

Originally posted on Atomic Redhead:

Well, we are home from San Diego! What a trip! It was lots of fun, but I’m certainly glad to be home. I was planning on my “haul” post to be my last post about San Diego, but it seems y’all are just too impatient to hear about this vintage shop I’ve been hinting at on my Facebook and Twitter pages! So here we go!

I was delighted to find out that San Diego had a decent number of vintage shops and antique malls to visit during my stay. Three out of my four full days in San Diego I spent shopping with Carla of Tiny Angry Crafter. When shopping out of town, I have to be pickier, especially as we were flying back, and I loathe checking bags, but being picking was a little bit easier as my wallet was on the slim side after two days at Expo, so…
