Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Sliding Into The Sick

I can feel it creeping over me
Sliding like a soggy, steamy, feverish blanket
Of sore muscles and aching limbs
The occasional cough sneaks in uninvited
Setting off a wave of heat
That turns my eyes grainy
And echoes through my aching throat
I long to crawl back into bed, on a heating pad
Sleep the day away
But I haven't won the lottery this week
So here I am
Trying to deny the sick that's already stomping on my soft palate

What Dreams May Come - And Freak You Out

Last night, I dreamed that I was running down the street in heels and an ermine coat with a knapsack full of machine guns slung over my shoulder. Like, full-on gangster gun-moll, running from the law with Al Capone as my sugar-daddy.

What the hell?

I have always had vivid dreams - full of all sorts of crazy and fantastical crap. They're a lot of fun, until you hit one that scares you. Or tells you more about yourself than you're willing to face.

Do The Right Thing Today - Then Make It A Habit

Today, find a way to help someone in your community.

Then, just for the hell of it, let's all do it tomorrow. And the next day. And the next.

That's how great nations are built.

Another Fun Friday Edition of "What Did I Just Watch?"

It's Friday, and I am ready to be off the grid. Seriously. It's been a week. But before all the chill of the weekend, I'll point you toward a few pictures and videos that'll have you scratching your head or looking under your bed.

Someone please tell me what's going on here.

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Dreams Come True

The books are in
I guess this is reality
Surreal as it seems
It's not every day your dream comes true
So excuse me as I savor a bit
Or a lot
Indulge me, please
This was a long time coming
And I'm still finding it hard to believe
