Random Thoughts – mid May

random thoughts

When promises become scarce you’ll need jumper cables and Vaseline.

Follow the lark, for she knows where she goes. Avoid the badger, he’ll rip your face off.

How did I not know that Dan Blocker’s son is on TV?

Too many good people are dying. Cut it out!

Trying to sleep while the mourning doves are in heat.

Got my first subpoena this week. I feel so grown up.

Between random and thought

random thoughts

between random and thoughtRandom thoughts falling between random and thought, and then random again.

Rocketing between boredom and depression, lost in a landscape of fractured ambitions, or maybe it’s Fresno.

Books on shelves cramped and musty. Waiting to be read. Wanting to feel the fresh air between their pages.

Sane people can no longer play bridge because no matter what cards they have they bid no trump.

Weebles do not subscribe to the domino theory.

Acid and sugar – random thoughts

random thoughts

acid and sugarMy blood is acid and sugar. (That sounds much cooler than saying I have gout and diabetes.)

I’m giddy as a stereotype over the impending Harry Potter book.

We’re just about due for another remake of THE FRONT PAGE. Maybe this one could be about bloggers?

First Donald Dump wins a primary, now half the Monkees are going on tour. It’s a sad world.

The clerk at the pet store just had to explain to a man that the crickets in the lizard cage are not “lucky” crickets.

Sarah Palin speeches are like political Mad Libs.

If people on bikes are bicyclists, why aren’t people driving cars called carists? #carists

The bottles are calling and other musings

random thoughts

bottles are callingThe bottles are calling. Do me a favor and tell them to shut up.

My foot is almost completely deswollen. Soon I will ride again.

I keep getting calls and emails offering jobs which I would not enjoy even if I was qualified for them.

Never underestimate a grown woman wielding a teddy bear.

I am thirsty but I can not drink from the wells of others
