I don't have an opinion on that

Overheard at work:
"The ground floor is the best floor
In the hospital."

olfactory hallucination?

Car smells like a smoker's mouth
Not all that pleasant

City girl

That goat looks quite strange
Also, it is very large
Oh, it is a horse

Weeks of shitty sleep
Farewell, my insomnia
Just bought new pillows

Hand, foot and mouth disease: a natural history*

Neuropathy. Scabs. Fatigue.
Skin and nails peel off**.

*after the fever and delirium have resolved.
**after five weeks, I'm still at this stage.

I could have inserted a photo

Disgusting to clean
A washing machine filter

I'm too impatient
To watch a whole fireworks show
I find them boring

What's worse - the music or the number plates?

Noise of "No Limits" from the
Car of "DJ LES"

Two cars behind him
"P1AY3R" and his passenger
Mock-strangle themselves

Your cheeky chuckles,
Conspiratorial smiles
And two tiny teeth.

What's that smell?

Hot water broken
Showering becomes a chore
Hygiene may suffer

Serendipitous poetry from the New York Times

from an article about "disgraced former congressman" Weiner
from an interview with Isabel Allende, author and rapid pooper
from a book review
Love this haiku bot.
Saves time reading paper, such
relevant stories.

I'm a little queasy right now

Uneasy feeling
Finding worms after eating
Half of your mango

Sticky hair dryer
Hope it was not mistaken
For an adult toy

Another heat wave. Yawn.

Flocks of sheep shelter
Under huge Xanthorrhoea
In their woollen coats

Retrosternal squeeze
Dry eyes, dry mouth, dry humour
Lesson never learnt

Blue Album concert review

Weezer I love you.
Allowing me to relive
the sweet hope of youth

It will be 2013 in 5 hours!

Sweltering, sweating,
swanning about sans sweaters,
swallowing, swilling.

PS if you'd like to comment on my 13 "ethical" resolutions for 2013, they're on my other blog.
