The House of the Dripping Phlegm

With most sincere apologies to The Animals

There is a house in New Jersey
They call The Dripping Phlegm
And it’s been the sorrow of many a soul
Now count me one of them

My sinuses once worked quite well
I breathed both in and out
I talked, I laughed, I inhaled smells
I even walked about

Now the only thing a cougher needs
Are drops and pills and sprays
I inhale steam in my hot tub
It’s been this way for days

Oh mother tell your children
not to do what I have done
But stay away from germ-y friends
Go to a beach with sun

Got one foot in the front hall
The other’s out the door
Searching for the miracle cure
They claim it’s at the store

Well there is a house in New Jersey
They call The Dripping Phlegm
It’s been the sorrow of many a poor soul
Now count me one of them

Longing for Spring

growling gray skies
cold rain lashing the windows
spring hides below ground

So May 12th is Limerick day….

There once was a lass named Ahuva
Whose taste in footwear will school ya’
Her heels are soooo tall
But she doesn’t fall
It’s true, you know I don’t fool ya!

Exasperation

Monosyllables.
My answers are all surface.
What part don’t you get?

/grins at you all. If you are reading this, I don’t mean YOU. The person at whom this is directed does not read my blog. *grin*

Temptation

The book has arrived.
Just 2 days left in the month.
Read it or listen????

Look into my eyes and say that

It’s community
that harnesses our passions
so we are civil.

This isn’t one of my better efforts, I know. It’s just that I’ve been contrasting my atomic life to my digital life. I’ve spent the last few days deeply immersed in my atomic family and community. I was reminded again that how the people I love can drive me crazy and I love love love them anyway. 🙂

I had a lovely holiday lunch where the talk covered topics dear to our hearts. We were passionate in our beliefs, our opinions, our statements. But even when we disagreed, we always looked at the others and pulled back from stepping over the line from that one final, killing, unforgivable remark. That doesn’t seem to happen much when people post to the internet. Certainly it doesn’t seem to happen much when the SL bloggers/plurkers/tweeters start ranting. I appreciate the internet. I value the ability to interact with the world. We are all aware of the vast good of a linked-in, linked-up network. But…… allow me to shed a quiet tear for the complete lack of civility. A tear for the hatred, cruelty, viciousness. I am not saying we must all agree. I am not saying not to protest, not to stand up for your beliefs, not to be passionate. The world NEEDS that commitment.

But look right into my eyes, SEE ME, and then, if you can, spew your hatred.

Fresh Start

It’s Rosh Hashanah!
Clear the slate, time to forgive.
Mend a broken heart.

🙂 L’Shanah Tovah Tikatevu!
