Corn on the Cobb Salad, and other burgeonings

I lightly boiled three eggs,
mashed them up in a bowl

I think the addition of raw corn, or perhaps lightly cooked mushrooms, would be a worthwhile endeavor.

Meanwhile my erstwhile partner jokingly asks if I’m having an affair.

This on account of twice cooking dinner without premeditation, including enough for leftovers, and once waking up early enough to walk the lake before work, and I think there was a massage in there somewhere.

All behavior in keeping with my ever-present intentions, but not so much my regularly demonstrated behaviors.><a href= Read the rest of this entry »

to eat & drink & breathe

things that would otherwise fill you dead?

Anger she sours, glowering in whiny misspelled horror

22 07 2009

There’s no priest in this dream

Lie to me; I promise to believe
