Them darn vows

That’s the problem with vows. Say ‘em one day, fulfill ‘em the next. So even though I ain’t got one goldurn thought anywheres inside this empty head o’ mine, I still gotta post. Post on, blank man. Hi! My name is Tom, what’s yours? LWIII

A love poem

I see a man, a holy man, a one-stuck herculite hungry man,    a yearning man, a wordless man, a man who never learned the way, a man with oh so much to say,    without a mouth to say it with. I see a man so full of love it almost overrides his fear, […]

Dogbutt blog post

I like that title. I only called it that because I don’t have anything to say, but have decided to post a blog a day until the end of the year, for new time’s sake. Plus dogbutt is one of my favorite words. So if you’re reading this, you might as well stop, ‘cause I […]

Atheists

I’ll put some words in some imaginary religious folks’ mouths: “If you don’t love this book, the creator of the universe will burn you forever.” “If you agree with me, God will like you.” “Our group is the only group in history that has the truth.” “Our truth is the only truth ever possible for […]

Vengeance

Revenge stories are quite a hoot. To watch someone be wronged horribly, then to see the righteous justice of their avenger get carried out by a likeable hero, is one of my favorite storylines. Sad to say, since I like to think of myself as somewhat civilized and moralish. Must be something in the blood, […]

To be or not to be normal

Is normal a virtue, or should it be?  Does normal simply mean lack of courage, lack of adventure or lack of difficulty?  Maybe normal is an artificial state of mind none of us reach – and if we did, I suspect we want to make radical changes.  I feel like waking up Jack Kerouac to […]

Salt and pepper

Salt. Yum. Too much is bad though. What’s up with that? Moderation is good. Too much moderation, however, is immoderate. Showdown in the salt and pepper corral. Duoable, LWIII

When words bedend

There comes a time in every sentence when you need to bedend. Bedending is something of a lost art these days, since it’s a nonsense word, and nonsense is not held in the high esteem it once was. Makes me feel kind of brillig and tovey, if you know what I mean, if not actually […]

The meaning of words

Long have I pondered the meaning of words, long studied, sweltered, and split them apart. And I have come to an understanding. It depends mostly on which ones you use. fyi LWIII

Bundle telegraph

No words today, just thoughts trapped in graphic, odd greemings punted on third down. Something said, something wondered, a touch sinister. Why all the vampires? Mystery beyond pondering, question after answer, sounds belong. Truth, LWIII

Quips, quimsies and quiddities

A word can gurgle in the snout or tangle badly coming out, Arriving mangled on the tang, returning via boomerang, Or mixed with reasons and awkward slang. Dang. Nothing to blog home about, LWIII

Unlock the power

Apparently power gets locked up a lot, since so many advertising types exhort us to unlock it. So how does it get locked up, who or what does the locking? If it was up to me, we’d never lock power up to begin with. But then how would self-improvement folks get any advertising done? A […]

Peeve

Man, am I peeved. Not really, not peeved at all. Just love the word peeve. Peeve peeve peeve. Like a rapier made of noodle – bendy noodle. The word itself is annoying. The same way teasing without stopping is. Just keep teasing until it becomes peeving. This is my pet peeve. It bites. Down Peeve, […]

To know or no

Knowing: it’s the new ignorance. All my life I’ve dreamed of knowing enough to finally relax and know what I’m doing here. Think I may have learned towards the wrong knowing. Every time I thought I knew something for sure, turned out I was wrong, sometimes really, really wrong. In other words my knowing sucked, […]

Hai poetry

Got my first new hai yesterday. Been a long wait but it was worth it. If you’re interested you’ll have to climb into the Hai Tree to take a gander. Pretty weird in there, so watch out. Might get smacked by an idear. A hai is a poem with a length of exactly one word. […]

A question of metaphor

What does it mean to journey to Nebraska? What does it mean to return? Crossing the windy praries, heading north and then east, to a little town on the border of Wyoming that doesn’t have a single McMansion and still has elm trees on the streets. There to rendezvous with Fate and Health, to dance […]

Old is the new young!

Have you heard? Is it just me, or is anyone else getting tired of hearing that something is the new something? First thirty was the new twenty. Then forty was the new thirty. Then forty was the new twenty. Then sixty was the new forty. Guess we skipped fifty. We in the boomer generation like […]

Looking at stuff

Man, it kills me how much it all depends on how you look at stuff. That totally sucks. You’d think something could just be a way and that would be it. But nooooo! A good example is me. I look at myself and see a svelte, well-mustachioed tango artist with a cute butt. Other people […]

Guys and Gals

What’s up with gals? The story of that word is the story of how it became wrong to be weak. Apparently, for some bizarre reason, a group of people decided that being feminine, or being considered feminine, was bad. It became an insult to call women gals, so we had to start calling them guys. […]

Nostalgia

Sorry to write about nostalgia with a brand-new set of words, but that’s how it works around here. O do I recall fondly the days when one could just bust out a set of old words to say anything you felt like saying. But that was then and this is now. Ah, then! How grand […]
