Like a moth to a flame,
I don't use my brain.
All of these tears
drive me insane.
I'm irresistibly drawn,
though I know I'll get burned.
You'd think after all
these years I'd have learned.
A shadow on the wall,
is all I remain.
My flame now extinguished
but my life not in vane.
I will live on in the string
of a moon beam
from there I will haunt you
each time you dream.
My laughter will fall
down like the rain.
The warm cascade
relinquishing my pain.
I'm a shockwave baby
electrifying your life.
You'll be left feeling like
you've been stabbed with a knife.

For Cinema and Celebs I didn't know what to do
so since I'm a kid at heart I thought of Clerihew
What's that you ask? You wanna know?
It's a poetry form so let's start the show...
His name is Johnny Depp
and he has quite the rep
From Elmstreet to Sweeny Todd
Can you call in the drool squad
Another fav is Brad Pitt
I wouldn't wipe off his spit
He seems like he's an awesome dude
With great skills and a diverse brood
Then there is Marky Mark
his abs the ticket to his spark
Max Payne comes to theaters soon
I'll be there to watch and swoon
I'd be remiss not including Donnie
I'm not alone in thinking him bonnie
As an actor he wasn't getting much fame
but he's Hangin' Tough, yes I know that was lame
To toss in some gals I'll include Reese
Her talent seems to never cease
She does well in comedy and drama
Even played Adam Sandler's momma
How about a little Angelina Jolie
She's a little out there and not quite holy
Nowadays she is a little more devout
But in the past she let her inner freak out
I love them in the movies, good or bad
They and some others are totally rad
Who are some of your favorite stars
And yes Marvin they can be from Mars
This would be an entry for the Cinema & Celebrity section of the Blogophilia Olympics.
At the mere mention of Atari
my eyes get a little starry
thinking about back in the day
and all the hours that I'd play.
The games of today just not the same.
I know I seem a little lame
not accepting Playstation's fame
but I won't hide my head in shame.
This here is an entry for the Music category of the great Blogophilia Olympics.
Dear Blogging Journal,
Today was the worst day ever! Ok, it's not the worst really but for a moment it was. Well, more than a moment but I'll get to that in a minute.
I took the day off of work today because I had a few appointments scheduled. BJ.. can I call you BJ?? LOL, maybe I should call ya something else. How about Blogger J? Yeah, ok… we'll go with that. Blogger J don't you just hate when you have those open window type of appointments? You know, those where they say that the person will be at your house between such and such time. Yeah, well the first appointment today was that sort of appointment. I needed a little repair for the security system and the guy was going to be here between 8 and 12. There went the idea of sleeping in!! The next appointment was at 1…. we will get to this one a little later. The last appointment was at 4:30 and this one, BLAH! How you doing financially Blogger J? I could use a little home improvement loan. I know they say don't loan to friends or family but if the roof doesn't make it through the winter and there is some leakage issues you may just die in the aftermath and then we won't be friends either. It's a 50/50 chance as far as I can see so you think about it and we'll get back to thatJ
Ok so back to that 1 o'clock appointment. Guess what it was, one of my least favorite places! Come on Blogger J, you remember… I told you a little story about it in the past in Docs to Beetles. Yep, you got it I had an appointment with the Dentist! Ok, you know how I feel about them. Just to freshen your memory a little, I think that they are masochists! Some of them sadomasochists even!! Well today they just had all sorts of new torture in line. The Dentist office that I go to is also an Optometry Clinic so that is what I was there for back in the previous blog. Not too long ago I paid another visit to be evaluated for TMD and that visit was pain free, thank God! No Blogger J, I don't have TMD… thanks for askingJ Anyways, they did have me make an appointment for a cleaning and check-up seeing since I've avoided the Dentist for about 3 years or so. I know, I know… I'm just asking for trouble but they scare me and here is why…
I walked into the clinic today and what do I hear as soon as I open the door?? Drilling, yep… drilling. I know it's a Dentist's office Blogger J but they should sound proof or something cause I wanted to turn around and walk back out cause here is what I saw in my mind

I have to admit that I am not a fashionista by any stretch of the imagination. My idea of fashion is a sweatshirt with some type of logo, or not, and some comfy sort of pants. When I see some of the high couture fashions I just wonder who the hell actually wears that stuff! You don't see your average Jane or Joe walking down the street in any of that crazy stuff. I do however love me some TV and I get sucked into those dang "reality" shows so I of course tune in to watch Project Runway. I've seen all seasons of the show and am watching the current one and I can't help but think to myself that the show should be getting better and more creative not worse. I think I tune in to see the resident crazies rather than the fashion but there really aren't any this season so I am stuck focusing on the fashion because God forbid I just turn it off. Here are some pieces that I'm quite perplexed about.
Like I said, I'm not the best judge of fashion but would you wear this when you get all gussied up for a party??
It makes me think of a demented Snow White with 7 gnomes rather than dwarfs.
Bondage and tool, oh my! If only I saved all those outfits I made, I too could possibly go to Bryant Park during Fashion Week to show off my clothing line.
I loved the 80's just like most in my age group and while this next one brings me back to that decade, I don't think even they would have worn it. What about you?
It looks like she's been out partying all night and got in a few cat fights or something. Maybe the outfit looked better before she headed out for the party.
Those are just a few of the outlandish creations from the cast this season. Previous seasons seemed to have some crazy stuff too but you could appreciate it somewhat. Well except for this lovely ensemble
Yeah, I just don't see anyone wearing this. Not unless they had some horrible deformity that they were trying to hide.
Ok, here are a couple pieces that I could find some appreciation for but I still couldn't see any "real world" people wearing them.
There is a beauty of sorts to these and maybe some celebrity or someone rich and famous may wear them but your average Jane? I think not. The 2nd was made by last season's winner who is quite the character so back then I got to tune in for the crazy and some good fashion now and again. What's with the ear muffs on that 1st one though? It's just a coincidence that both are of the frilly, tool persuassion. I wasn't finding a whole lot of picture choices out there, really I just got sick of looking through all the nonsensical fashion.
This piece here was made by the winner of season 1… if I remember correctly.
Now it's a decent dress, I could see your average Jane wearing this one even. In fact she wore this one specifically a little to much so you can see it's loved. I could see the really average Jane wearing it actually cause it's made out of corn husks… how expensive could it be to whip up one of those?? Waste not want not... LOL.
This last piece…. I'm not sure what to think about it.
Ok, I lied. What I think is the poor girl is so malnourished that she just can't hold herself up straight cause that shoulder piece, or whatever the heck they call it, probably weighs more than her.
Which brings me to those runway models who are a whole other story
Can we just get some with more realistic body types and "real" sizes rather than 0 or -1??
Ok, I guess I really shouldn't be trying to judge when my idea of fashion is
But hey, freedom of speech is one of my rights and I needed an entry for the Fashion category of the Blogophilia OlympicsJ
I always wanted pets when I was little but could never have them. There were all the usual reasons that parents give their kids but I vowed that I'd have all sorts of them when I was living on my own. I've been out on my own for about 20 years now and over the years I've had more than 40 pets! That is an average of 2 a year but I've had at least 4 at any given time with the highest being 14+ at one point! Today I am down to 4 again. 2 of those are remaining from the 14+ and the other 2 are new, 1 within the last 2 years and the other a month or so. My pets are like my kids and they say that, like kids, pets pick up some likeness to their owners. I'd have to agree with that because my pets have definitely picked up on my inner and outer crazy!! I've done a tribute poem to 2 of them in the past but I figured that they deserve a little more than that so this in an introduction to Melanie's crazy 4.
Tangelo, a Moluccan Cockatoo, is the oldest of the 4 and one of the survivors of the 14+. Curiously enough, he will be 14 in December.

Just trying to get out
I must confide
It's weird here no doubt
Ups and downs
The mind spins around
On a merry-go-round
A rebel within
Let the two collide
So the fun can begin
Life is too short
To keep me confined
With your support
Souls become entwined
Just let me live
And spice up your day
The past I'd forgive
Just to get out and play

Over yonder, behind those trees
the rainbow ends in a pot of Sprees.
No gold found here where it's not needed
but candy will be happily greeted.
For now I lie in a field of flowers
drying off from the April showers.
The sun begins to come out of hiding
and soon down that rainbow I'll be sliding.
The leprechauns will show me the way
to the pot o' candy without delay.
They come this way on their trip over
and I'll pay them with a 4 leaf clover.
We will then skip merrily along
as we sing a Willie Wonka type song.
Once we arrive to our destination
we find ourselves on a candy plantation.
Before the rainbow began to depart
the leprechauns had words to impart
"Candy is what makes the world go round."
Leprechauns really aren't too profound.
With that they let me slide on down
my joy was heard all over town.
The rainbow dispersed and they all agree
To leave the candy plantation to me.

See that house back there,
it haunts my dreams.
It causes a scare
and brings on screams.
So many tortured days
spent in my young life,
emotions set ablaze
from weeping and strife.
These eyes of mine have seen
many horrible things.
Some of it was obscene
and involved squeaky springs.
At times I do go back,
you may think me insane.
It's not sanity I lack
it just keeps me humane.
You may think me twisted
from childhood sense of view,
knowing evil existed
has kept me safe from you.
I'm stronger from those years
and wise beyond my youth.
I may still shed some tears
but I can see the truth.
