Monday Mornin’ Randomness

  1. “I love the sexy slither of a female snake.”

    Really? That’s a … little creepy, but cool, description.

    1. Barry White said that in defense of snakes on Whacking Day after being the Grand Marshall of the Springfield Whacking Day festivities.

      You are the KING of Simpsonian trivia, WIGSF. Awesome reference.

  2. Speaking of poetry, a friend of Ken’s who’s a poet is almost finished the poem he’s writing about our wedding. It’s his wedding gift to us. I can’t wait to see it. I do love poetry. Hearing that news was one of the highlights of my weekend.

    That’s a really wonderful gift! What a great thought!

  3. I don’t get poetry. I like for people to whack me over the head with their concepts and not figure out the meaning within meaning stuff. I HATED the poetry component of any English class I ever took. Plus, rhymes are creepy; all I can think of is the jumprope rhyme in Nightmare on Elm Street One, two, Freddy’s coming for you… Three, four, better lock your door…

    Try the stuff I’m linking to. It’ll change your mind, I bet. It did mine.

    Had a good if not exhausting weekend involving manual labor, a backhoe, and dirt. Fun, fun. I’m brewing a blog post about it even now.

    Double, double, toil and trouble, eh? 🙂 Nothing like backbreaking weekend labor to make you appreciate your cushy office job, I allus say.

  4. I’ve written a bit of poetry. Not good at it but I liked it. I’ve gotten out of the habit of reading it–so thanks for the suggestions.

    It’s my pleasure. Poetry’s not a favorite of mine at ALL, but I’ve really come to admire these poets.

    As for my weekend. It was weird. Someone who hurt me once many years ago got in touch with me and apologized. Amazing. Strange. All these years I’ve been thinking one thing, and the truth was something else. My brain still can’t get wrapped around it.

    That’s really cool in a Twilight-Zoney sort of way. I thought I saw you tweeting about this so I knew something was up.

    Now tonight I’m going to watch the season premiere of Torchwood–cause my head needs to be addled just a bit more.

    Addle away. Have fun. 🙂

  5. Well you’ve swelled my head so much, the only thing that will let the air out is writing. To say I was blown away is an understatement. I have spent most of last night and today writing the story of you as a little boy with yellow sticky notes all over while you roll down a hill and into a Webster’s and then this. My head will be so big I won’t be able to wear my cowboy hat. In your honor. My son Josh’s initals are JD as well.

    🙂 That’s wonderful. How flattering! A story of my very own! Thank you!

  6. Darc you are far too kind. But I am so glad to hear that you are giving poetry a chance. I love the concise nature of poetry also. I also am amazed at how many interpretations so few words can bring out. Imagination wranglers, yep.

    You’re welcome, and I love that term — “imagination wranglers”. 🙂
