It Is Very, Very Hot Here!

The heat is on, the fans are on, and it’s a cleaning day. Which means sweeping and mopping floors, making sure there aren’t any cockroaches, finding a cockroach in your pile of CLEAN clothes, batting away flies, mosquitoes, spiders, and those weird no name bugs that are just everywhere. But, hey, now that I’m done getting the steaming clothes off the line, I can go swimming, right? Wrong! The pool guy just put chemicals in that chlorified bean-shaped tooth-breaking body of artificially clean water! And why, o why, must laptops get so hot! I swear, sweat is dripping in places I didn’t even know was possible!

Beans & Rice

When someone asks you what your favorite food is, you’re not going to reply with, “Rice and beans.” No. Because rice and beans aren’t exactly an all-time favorite. Rice by itself is, of course. Not only is it cheap, but even I (considering how picky I can be) find a steaming bowl of white rice delicious. It’s when you add the beans into the mix that things get yucky. Even the colors seem yucky, brown and white, all mushy and sticky, gooping off your spoon or fork or hand (or whatever you eat with), some of it dropping and hitting you right in the shirt. Let’s face it, beans and rice are just plain nasty.


You may be wondering why I even began writing about beans and rice in the first place. Well, if you remember where I recently moved to, and think about the country’s staples, you may realize why I’m in a beans and rice state of mind. After having beans and rice for lunch and dinner, I’m feeling rather starched, and rather brown and white and mushy and sticky and goopy. Yeah, but not full, ‘cuz I contracted a case of the “in and out,” which is simply another way to say (diarrhea! which doesn’t look all that different from the picture below).


A Favorite Song of Mine

Falling on my knees in worship
Giving all I am to seek your face
Lord all I am is yours
My whole life
I place in your hands
God of Mercy
Humbled I bow down
In your presence at your throne
I called you answered
And you came to my rescue and
I wanna be where you are
In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high
Higher and Higher!
In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high
I called you answered
And you came to my rescue and
I wanna be where you are

Fishy Food

When water waits within the well

A bit of bait like dinner bell

Summons seven sorry salmon to

Fishies flying out of fearless

Nets will hold them captive soon

Liar

LIAR.

I hate the sound of words

What is the truth, I wonder

With each and every breath we take

A lie lurks undercover

What is this world, I ask

Where honesty is slacking

This is what we have become

And will be, ever after

Pancake Planet

Once upon a time the world really was flat. God had decided to take an iron and flatten it. It happened before he placed living things on the planet, but the Bible didn’t include that part.

People back in the time the world was flat were correct in their deducing. There was an edge that fell down into oblivion, but then God filled the earth with helium, and it took a quite few years for them to realize that.

So when remembering history, don’t forget the time when God was bored, heated up a very large iron, and made the world as flat as a pancake. And understand that deities, not just humans, must also find ways to amuse themselves.

The End

Ugly

The ugly can beckon as well as the beautiful

It can draw you in with outstretched arms and say hello

Because somewhere underneath the ugly hides the beautiful

Somehow greeting you from below
