Poo haiku

Weekends are okay
Except if you have to work
All day on both days

It sucks to be me

I was super-excited to hear Rod and Trekkie Monster from Avenue Q on the radio the other day. Turns out, Avenue Q is coming to Australia! It is due in Perth in November. I can't wait.

The internet is for porn. (I have that magnet on my fridge from when I saw Avenue Q in London.)

What I did this evening.

Check it out.

MMSE Haiku

"No ifs, ands, or buts."
How many repeat this phrase?
Not even one third.

Construction work on the way home

Illuminated
Arms reach for storeys beside
The sleeping skyline

balcony

Subdued, flickering
Lights muted by the navy
Soothing the dry eyes.

Overheard haiku - Gordon Ramsay on Hell's Kitchen

1.
Surely you must have some sort of quality control inside your head.

2.
Fuck the lot of you.
Is that clear? Yes, chef. Yes, chef.
Fuck the lot of you.

I left my bag in the "Geriatrician" office this afternoon

Left work late, at eight,
After locking my car keys
In someone's office.

the fresh scent

Eucalyptus tree
Drops its nuts onto the ground.
Squashed nuts smell so fresh.

Interior Design + Channel 9 =

It used to be that Interior Design + Channel 9 = Susie "Barbie Doll" Wilkes hosting the Australian Changing Rooms. Now they have a new reality show, homeMADE (their capitalisation, not mine). Oops, did I say show? I meant "MASSIVE TELEVISION EVENT." The contestants all look pretty young so I imagine there'll be a few guns and cans on show.

To Do Haiku

Watch Video Hits
Buy a Mother's Day present
No, that's all too hard.

Buy some 3M Hooks
For the many bits of art
I framed yesterday.

Walls no longer blank
I shall sit and gaze at them
Vertical lovelies.
