It’s Getting Clouded In Here


Everything becomes the past, but you can still see it all.

We have rearview mirrors and reflective surfaces in our heads. 

Some people use them: some don’t.


note: I thought this was a “Mirage“, but it was just a “Voxy“.

double note: this was a pretty funky cloud!


Today #216

Today was “Clock work …………………………… Orange.

Stray Hat Strut


When I see stray hats lying around,
I always think that they might not be stray at all
… but still attached to someone’s head.


note: stray heads don’t usually have hats on them … around here at least.

double note: I feel all macabre tonight … I might start making things with knotted string.

triple note: I once kicked over a motorcycle helmet on a beach … and only found sand inside it.


Today #215

Today is over. Over.” … I’m talking on a walky-talky … I thought you knew that.
(HeyTell is a pretty cool free app for your iPhone!)



I’d be a good “curator”.

“The person died. This is not a good cure.”


note: “To preserve (meat, for example), as by salting, smoking, or aging.”
I’m curing myself right now! … through all 3 methods.

double note: the cure to driving straight is adding a “v”.


Today #214

I was threatened all day today … by rain.
… but it was an empty threat.

Things On Strings


Flying a kite and fishing are about the same;

you hold a spool of string … and nothing much happens after that.


note: wireless fishing and kite flying would be cool, but not very fun.


Today #213

Peter Falk died. Rest in Peace Columbo.

(I guess Mannix and Jim Rockford will sadly join him eventually)



It must take longer to asphyxiate yourself using a hybrid car.


note: electric cars and convertibles might prove even more difficult.

double note: the above vehicle is a hybrid … part truck/part bedhead.


Today #212

Today was like a campfire marshmallow: hot and sticky.
(I guess a hot stick is hot and sticky too!)

Short Ordering


I hate when people tell me what to do!
I will do what I want!
I don’t care what you say!
Screw you Simon Says!


note: I don’t want to put my right foot in either.


Today #211

I killed about a million zombies at work today: it was pretty quiet.



Drinking responsibly in the morning doesn’t sound right.


note: I don’t drink in the morning; that spot’s reserved for hangovers … or feeling healthy and sober.

double note: why are there “children’s aspirin” … children shouldn’t be waking up with hangovers.


Today #210

Today I came home from a kindergarten visit, removed my sweaty shirt and saw weird red marks on my stomach. I went to the bathroom mirror to investigate further … and saw a 4 year old’s handprint on my stomach. That little girl must have smacked me pretty hard: it’s still visible 12 hours later!
(it’s like an aboriginal kindergarten cave painting, but on my stomach)

A Mute Point



 If humans were all mute, I bet there would be more punching and kicking.


note: what is sign language for “punch“?

double note: some days I think I was born “moot“.

triple note: If I’ve offended anyone who is mute, I wasn’t trying to. I apologize in advance.


Today #209

Today I was so busy it was like running barefoot on really hot sand.

Old Futures


Thinking about the past gets me all rewound up!


note: I’m “passive digressive” usually.

double note: wind energy should be called “rewind“.

triple note:rewound” could be when you hurt yourself in the same place twice.


Today #208

You know the moment when you realize the water level in the toilet is too high: that was today.

La La La


Why can I “la la la” all day,
… but only “ra ra ra” for a minute before my jaw gets sore?

I’m glad I don’t listen to those “ra ra ra” songs: they are tough.


false note: J

note: it’s even more difficult to type “ra ra ra” than “la la la“!


Today #207

 Today started before I got up: like most other days.
