and beckon him to come.
a tear escapes his eye
for the comfort of mine
while inside me a tree unfurls.
it branches up arms and down legs
and i name the fruit as it grows
strong in the pink shade of dusk.
Well, I'm not going to sundown tonight. I got caught up in Paradise Alley and didn't do my laundry or pack for this weekend. Sigh. I'm most upset because rumor had it I was finally going to meet Lenina there... It would have been like a (very, very small, quite possibly the smallest ever) bloggers convention.
Have a fantastic Thursday night for me. I'll be sitting around the house moping...

where between sips of beer
and swatting flies his
fingers play piano
across his belly.
the problem, he says
is you don't listen.
i watch the peacock clock
tick away time while he
whistles a lullaby.
take a seat baby girl
and pats his lap with
weathered hands that
helped to raise me,
devil's got a daddy complex
enough for the world
Dreams are fantastic, aren't they? I've been having a bad daddy week, and then this dream surfaces and puts everything back into its perspective. My subconscious is so smart...

My sister and I are incapable of just having a casual drink together.
But we blame our parents
For all my talk, I really am afraid of taking a hit.
I'm not a fan of this band
I still dress myself, and I still make mistakes
**In case you can't tell, I've been cleaning out my storeroom. Sigh.

RULES:1. Respond and rework: Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag other un-tagged people.
What did you have for dinner?
Lamb Chops. Not the puppet.
What was the last thing you bought?
What is on your bedside table?
What is the smallest gesture that makes you happy?
Which actor/actress do you think is similar to you?
What is a fashion style you can't stand?
Forever 21's Shop by Outfit. Basically they've taken all their sale items and coordinated them badly. It isn't edgy or stylish. It's lazy and repulsive.
What would you like to get rid of?
If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Say one random fact about yourself:

No more HP&OP after 8 p.m.!

**I've had these two ridiculous blemishes on both sides of my face for a week and I couldn't figure out where they cam from until I posted these pictures and realized my bumps are where I wore stickers all night. Note to self, stop wearing stickers.
Tornadoes ripped through the southeast. My family survived, cause that's how we roll!
Pizza at Fillini's Pizza... mmmmm!
I got my much needed face time with Mr. Bear. I love this last picture because it looks like he's taking time to smell the roses.
Of course, I had to change his diaper shortly after this picture... which did not smell like roses.
Monday kicked off the busiest week for me at work so I haven't done anything remotely exciting. Except when I talked Raina into starting a blog. I can't wait!!!
Last but certainly not least, I have to give a love-filled congratulations to Maggie May! I am so thrilled for you!!!

My wonderful sister is going to post for me today, and maybe do a guest blog here and there to keep my blog cogs well oiled.
Topics she will probably discuss:
Her hot fiance
Micro brewed beers
Painting her McMansion
Banjo, bass, fiddle, and guitar
Bluegrass music, for that matter
Mother and Stepfather's visit (teehee)
Obviously she's a busy, busy girl so to get her to blog you'd have to ask her nicely...
I miss you all TERRIBLY!

Instead, I will tell you of my stepfather's Sunday adventure.
I made the poor man leave the house during the shower because he doesn't know how to talk to people, much less a bunch of women celebrating the marriage of one of their own.
He was gone from 11 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Probably the longest he's ever gone off on his own. But he was okay- glad to be home when he arrived and full of stories.
He was most excited about going to the Dairy Queen.
Yes, my mother makes a gourmet meal for him every evening and he gets excited about Dairy Queen. Really?
He said that he got a discount because of his AARP card. Blushing, he retold the story of the guy behind the counter saying, "You can't be 65! You don't look old enough" Preening for all he's worth, Don Fajah said, "I should, I'm 78!" This exchange made him ridiculously happy. We're talking school girl happy.
He told me that after Dairy Queen, when he was still off roaming the greater tri-cities, he decided to treat himself to an ice cream cone and enjoyed it at a biker bar.
My mother is very good at speaking Don Fajah, told me that the "biker bar" is actually an Exxon gas station in Maryville.
But apparently there was a guy on a motorcycle filling up gas, so... biker bar.

You see, me and my esthetician will be celebrating our two year anniversary on June 6th.
Last night I was leaving the salon (walking funny because the wax was sticking to all the wrong places) and she gave me a big hug (not out of the norm) and said, "I love you". Sigh. I feel the same way. She's the only woman I'll trust with my naughty bits.
What a great moment in our life, yes?!
Hopefully it will be a story I can tell my grandchildren when they get waxed by her grandchildren.

Kevin is returning to the Army, and after today will not be around for immediate protection.
I really liked this one, too! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a competent guard that I don’t mind spending 8 hours of the day with? His replacement isn’t bad, he’s just not Kevin.
We’re having a going-away party for him this afternoon. Sadness.
Not sadness for the party (I love a good party) but for the going away part.
Playing Hide and Seek- even though he left me hiding once while he did his rounds
His inaccurate crossword puzzle answers
Joke of the Day (mostly jokes that not even a three year old would find funny)
Definition word games
Bad mouthing people we don’t like when no one is around
Pee Wee’s Playhouse word of the day
Making up our own NATO phonetic alphabet
Rock Paper Scissors
I wish him all the best, of course…

I am not getting married
My father is not in the witness protection program
I am not pregnant
I did not see your boyfriend in drag
I am not gay
I do not have 6 toes
My sinus problems are not contagious
There is not an outbreak of Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis... to my knowledge
I did not wrestle a lion in Africa
She does not have a crush on you
There are no cookies in the break room
And my sincerest apologies for not falling for any pranks. In the surprisingly wise words of Thomas, "you can't prank them if they don't care".
Hope you all are having a great day!
