Pocketful of Sunshine

This clip from the movie, Easy A, never fails to cheer me up.

I’m going to go watch it another few hundred times now, because I’m very much in need of some cheering up.

The Blog Not Read (featuring Robert Frost)

Two blogs appeared on my WordPress homepage
And sorry I could not read both
And be one blogger, how I stared
And thought of one as long as I could
To where it lay above the third and fourth;

Then read the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was colourful and the posts looked better,
Though as for that the comments there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that evening equally lay
As I grabbed myself a snack.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I would ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two blogs appeared on my WordPress homepage and I,
I read the first one, I don’t know why,
And none of this makes any sense.

Do I even exist?

People pretend like I don’t exist.

When I talk, they look right through me.

Today, it escalated to another level –

I thought he was different.

He looked like a nice guy, the kind of guy who would offer you his seat in a crowded bus.

Every evening, as I jogged to the park from my house, I’d see him drive past me.

But today! Today, for the first time he looked at me. The second I smiled at him, he started driving toward me. Before I knew it, he drove right through me with fear written all over his face, repeating, “You don’t exist, you don’t exist.”

He tried to hit me with a forklift! A FORKLIFT! But I continued to stand there, unharmed, as if nothing had hit me. As if I didn’t …. exist. And as I turned to look back at him, I heard the little boy watching us from across the road cry out, “My ice cream fell.”

C’mon baby, light my fire

Today's aily prompt

Today’s daily prompt

Here I am standing in my corner, lean and tall. Just the way she likes her men.

Everyday, she leaves me alone for hours at a stretch, and returns only to strip down right in front of me! Every. Single. Day. I try to look the other way, but I can’t. I’m frozen. One would literally have to lift me up and turn me in the other direction.

She touches me in inappropriate places sometimes. (Hey! I’m not complaining!)
Every night, before she goes to bed, she always manages to turn me on. There’s even been a few times where she then touches me and screams, “Hot!”

Then how is it even possible that I overheard her say the other day, “Oooh, I found this beautiful bedside lamp to go with my new bed.”

All these years – after all the touching and the staring. Was this a lie? Am I just another bed lamp to her?

That's me in my corner

That’s me in my corner

Sense and smellitivity

Today's daily prompt

Today’s daily prompt

What if I gave up my vision for an enhanced sense of smell? Maybe like Winnie in Hotel Transylvania, I’d be able to solve crimes in one sniff. Snifflock Holmes at your service. (Can’t tell if your husband is cheating on you? No sweat, just let me smell the truth/lies off him.)

Winnie from Hotel Transylvania

On the other hand, many songs would be inappropriate for me to sing. Oh well, I’d just have to rewrite the lyrics in that case. For example:

I Can See Smell Clearly Now – Johnny Nash
I can smell clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can smell all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me anosmic
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.


Hungry Eyes Nose – Eric Carmen
I’ve been meaning to tell you
I’ve got this feelin’ that won’t subside
I smell you and I fantasize
You’re mine tonight
Now I’ve got you in my nose

With this hungry nose
One whiff of you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got a hungry nose
I feel the magic between you and I


Can’t Take My Eyes Nose Off You – Frankie Valli
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my nose off of you
You’d be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my nose off of you

Pardon the way that I smell
There’s nothing else to compare
The smell of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak
So if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it’s real
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my nose off of you

Err… and love songs would never be love songs again.
