roses are red, violets are blue.

Aw, shit, you guys. I just-today remembered that it’s NaNoWriMo. If you’re not a fan of link clicking, it stands for National Novel Writing Month and it challenges poor schmucks like myself to write a novel during the month of November. The focus is on making a habit of putting pen to paper / fingers to keyboard and just. writing. every. day. The finished product don’t necessarily hafta be Pulitzer material, but the concept is fantastic and I’ve said I was going to participate, like, a kadrillion times.

Except today is November 24th.

Hell, if I lived in Atlanta it’s be November 25th right now.* So for all intents and purposes, there’s five days left in the month.

That doesn’t give me a lot of time.

Sooooo…. who wants to read some motherfucking poetry instead?


These dice have too many sides.
Not to sound like your Great-Aunt Gloria but
how the hell do I play Yahtzee
with these things?
Lord of the Rings
is one of your favorite films.
Tried to watch it a few nights back but
I had no clue what was happening
the whole time.
Which is fine-
I respect that you’ve got your tastes and
I most definitely have mine
But you see,
‘least to me:
These dice have too many sides.


*Why the shit would I live in Atlanta? (apologies to BK, but the only times I’ve been there was because I had a delayed /missed flight and ended up staying in a hotel overnight… Although, now that I think about it, that ended up being quite the adventure both times).

One thought on “roses are red, violets are blue.

    Ever since Gmail switched formats, I’ve been a tad negligent in my reading of TSC. I pop on today, and find myself mentioned – que curioso. Oh, Atlanta. Merely typing it & hearing it in my head and a genuine warm smile appears on my mug. Of my 37, the years I spent living in Atlanta were some of the best- in every possible way. It was my first true nirvana. We should go sometime! No apologies necessary, doll. XO
