Did I really say that?
Yeah, I guess I did.
Huh, who’d have thunk it.
Okay, hello to any interested parties. Yeah, that means you, Bearspawprint, Johnny, Charles, Dennis, LaBelleStudio, Lisa and whoever else who might have been wondering why I’ve been so MIA. I’m not sure I’ve found something positive to post about at length. But while finally attending to my email –yeah, I’ve been an equal opportunity AWOL entity on more than the blogland front– a few thoughts crossed my mental landscape — nothing earthshaking, I assure you. I hope this finds everyone enjoying some part of being alive at the moment of reading. If not, it’s my understanding that there are seven seasons of True Blood available for viewing online to help with your perspective. Or perhaps not. Do you get the idea as to why I’ve not been posting for some time? Hmm?
While I’ve been absent from my blogcasa The Breakfast Special’s Sarge and Lily–and their supporting cast, have been running amok for hundreds of pages. Currently I am not sure it’s a good idea on my part to continue posting their romantic adventure online. Thoughts on the pros and cons of this issue are welcome.
Why the f*&k is Soy appearing in everything from mayo to bread to soup where it serves no purpose except as a filler? I have no affection for soy products as I am allergic to to soy–and its increasing presence in food items where it serves no value is pissing me off royally. Ooops, this isn’t quite positive, is it? But I do feel better for venting. That’s positive relief. Frack Soy.
My ever delightful friend, Berit, shared this insightful commentary about rape culture in poetic form. Nothing is perfect, but I do think it makes a point well worth sharing. And anything that slams the TSA is right up my alley along with Freedom of Speech. Hmm, the positive is in the poetry. Or so I’m thinking as I’m typing. Hence, let me present Anna Binkovitz’s poem “Asking for it”.
