You Know What I Mean


This morning was really Tracy Chapmanish

… the rest of the day turned out quite mellow.


note: most Saturday nights are Kelly Pettitish … but that’s because he usually comes over to my place.

double note: I don’t think I can get any Barry Manilower than this post.

triple note:   “a simile is a simile” … but that’s a metaphor!

quadruple note: what’s a metaphor? … oh! it’s one word … and has that tricky “ph” sounds like an “f” stuff happening … nevermind.


notes to myself #81

  4. Thanks for the comments.

    Tammy: I am a phonetian too! … none of that whole word approach stuff.
    Dr. Hook‘s “The Cover of the Rolling Stone” and Steve Miller‘s “The Joker” seem to pop up a lot too.

    Donald Diddams: hee hee! I bet people on ships are good at flagging down taxis.

    S. Le: Kelly Pettit fans??? … I just call myself ross … or planetross if I’m feeling pompous … or pompompous. hee hee!

  5. S. Le: he knew I was going to say that. He can laugh at himself … when I’m not around to laugh at him. hee hee!
