without constant tears and whining
if you can’t handle it
for fuck sake, don’t play
why make everybody miserable

everyone but yourself

don’t answer that, don’t tell me
I used to be filled to the brim
with feelings and empathy
these days my finger is on the trigger

I’m all out of patience
no I haven’t got a license

neither do the jihadists

The nine different blogs that give you blogging envy

Milly Schmidt

So I was perusing through Discover, when I came across The Well-Thumbed Reader and found her post on 9 Stressful Blogging Situations (And how to solve them). At one point Mikaela mentioned ‘blogging envy’, causing me to immediately remember all the different instances that I too, had faced a monster with eyes of a particular shade of green.

Feeling jealous is often viewed as a very icky, shameful feeling to experience, yet we all face it at some point in our lives (like, every day?) Many people would prefer to gloss over such feelings and pretend they don’t exist, looking down on others who admit such feelings.

I’m guilty of this too.

BUT, I think that envy can be a great motivator if taken the right way (I don’t want to be endorsing jealous fits of rage that might result in murder), as envy is the very reason I’ve…

Scribbled to Paper


It’s risky business to love someone
and expect to be loved back.
It’s risky business to love someone
and hope they love you, too.
But if you ever find a good, brother,
and you let her go, you’d be a fool.

Lost and confused,
Run up and run down.
You’ve been left in the dust
with nothing but a frown.
It’s risky business to love someone,
and expect to be loved back.
When you let your heart go,
you may never get it back.

You started out happy,
you ended confused.
You used to dance the disco
now your strumming away the blues.
It’s risky business to love someone,
and expect to be loved back.
You got to throw all your chips in,
and you never know when you might lose.

I came home from work
with dinner on the table,
a nice warm kiss and
my favorite show on…

Cyranny's cove

I thought I was cured.

I honestly thought so… After the bi-weekly counseling, the group meetings, the pills and the half dozen rubber bands on my wrist, I thought I was getting free from it. Free from him… OM.

I had tried my best not to visit his blog too often, and more specifically not click on any of those Daily Denver posts…

In vain.

I fell… I failed. Again!

I thought one click wouldn’t matter. I thought I could just look, maybe leave a comment or a “like”, and close the window… No one harmed.

If only. But nooooo….

I should have known I was still too fragile to risk it, but I clicked here.

I was doomed.

I looked in my coin purse and checked if I had enough money left to succumb to a good Picture Battle…


I’m far from rich, but I could afford a…

I Think My Daughter Is Planning A Great Escape…

They are definitely ALL plotting something! -OM

Mr Mum: The 'joy' of a stay-at-home dad


My daughter is going through a phase. It’s just the age, people tell me. She’ll grow out of it. Thing is, I’m not so sure it is just a phase. I think it’s all part of a much grander, devious scheme. You’d think I’m talking about some evil, megalomaniac genius here with what I’m about to say. And too that I’d say ‘Oh, so you’ve met my daughter then?’.

So what’s the phase: collecting small-to-medium sized stones, filling her pockets with them and then ‘redistributing’ them in useful areas such as car seats, cups, your pockets and in bed (s). What I think her actual plan is: to dig a tunnel with her fellow nursery pupils so that they can escape from nursery when they want.

This occurred to me the other day, after I’d collected her from her maternelle (the French name for nursery) and had picked up her…
