Right in the middle of my longest no-post streak in quite a long time, I was nominated for a super cool blogging award by my blogging buddy and real-life acquaintance Miq over at Three Descriptors. Click on that link and check out her awesome blog. Do it. For realsies. Get your click on. K great thanks.
In any case, here’s the DL on the Versatile Blogger Award. It looks like this:
A) I dance wildly and sing loudly in order to get pumped up for writing/going out/eating breakfast and sometimes to avoid going to the bathroom.
B) If I were a fruit, I would not be a lime.
C) Today I won a race. Like, ran and was the first person across the finish line. It was incredible. (3.8 miles in 28.09 minutes — not really that fast but winning is winning).
D) I have a group of male friends who have inducted me into their “wolf pack,” and I have not yet told them that it would be unacceptable to do group roofies as a funny surprise (reference point, see: The Hangover). Maybe this is due notification.
E) It is officially true, as of tonight, that I have written three slam poems.
F) People should vacuum their rooms at least once per week.
G) Sticky toffee pudding is the most incredible Scottish dessert. Dessert is spelled with two s’s because you should want two desserts, not two deserts, because deserts are hot and sandy and cacti are hard. But still, you can steal water from a cactus, just not the really small kind that grow on Horny Toad Hill, aptly named by my cousins and me because of the plethora of horny toads to be found there. Wikipedia, though, says they’re actually called horned lizards, which really puts a damper on the rhythm of our hill’s name. On a more interesting note, Wikipedia also claims that ‘horned lizards’ are morphologically similar to the Australian thorny devil. That would be morphology as in biology as opposed to linguistics, which would be the identification, analysis and description of a language’s linguistic units. Duh.
A). Imagine what you would be like if you were 89 years old.
B). Eat a seasonable fruit.
C). If you are going running in Scotland, wear protective layers over your ears.
D). Consider writing down a plot to take over the world. It will probably be a bestseller.
E). Read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Reading is good for you.
F). Having a schedule is good.
The photograph I took
with the colors and the fruit
was my favorite;
if only colors could always be so bright
grass so vibrant in green
sky so crisp in blue
that’s the word we use for skies, right?
And what is the sun
if not already bright, but
couldn’t it be more flaming
more burningly yellow
I heard that people do not always dream
that dreams come in black-and-white
like an old TV screen
And my own dreams, I cannot picture
cannot remember if they come brilliantly
or all in dull grays and shades
Maybe I am thirsty for something
more vivid. Maybe
my subconscious has selected fruit
to be the color of my dreams
Maybe I am dreaming now
