"The spirit is most often free when the body is satiated with pleasure, indeed, sometimes the stars shine more brightly seen from the gutter than from the hilltop"-
W. Somerset Maugham

Classic Songs

Split Screen Sadness...And I don't know where you went when you left me but Says here in the water you must be gone by now I can tell somehow One hand on the trigger of a telephone Wondering when the call comes Where you say it's alright You got your heart right Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and Wait on the porch 'til you come back home Oh, right I can't find a flight We share the sadness Split screen sadness Two wrongs make it all alright tonight All you need is love is a lie cause We had love but we still said goodbye Now we're tired, battered fighters And it stings when it's nobody's fault Cause there's nothing to blame at the drop of your name It's only the air you took and the breath you left Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and Wait on the porch 'til you come back home Oh, right I can't find a flight So I'll check the weather wherever you are Cause I wanna know if you can see the stars tonight It might be my only right We share the sadness Split screen sadness I called Because I just Need to feel you on the line Don't hang up this time And I know it was me who called it over but I still wish you'd fought me 'til your dying day Don't let me get away Cause I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me So I can say this is the way that I used to be There's no substitute for time Or for the sadness Split screen sadness We share the sadness-John Mayer

------------------ First Cut Is The Deepest...I would have given you all of my heart But there's someone who's torn it apart And he's taken just all that I had But if you want I'll try to love again Baby, I'll try to love again but I know The first cut is the deepest Baby I know the first cut is the deepest But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed When it come to loving me he's worst I still want you by my side Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried And I'm sure going to give you a try And if you want I'll try to love again (tryyy) Baby, I'll try to love again but I know The first cut is the deepest Baby I know the first cut is the deepest But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed When it come to loving me he's worst I still want you by my side Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried But I'm sure gonna give you a try 'Cause if you want I'll try to love again (try to love again) Baby, I'll try to love again but I know The first cut is the deepest Baby I know, the first cut is the deepest When it come to being lucky he's cursed When it come to loving me he's worst The first cut is the deepest baby i know The first cut is the deepest try to love again...-Sheryl Crow

Here fishy fishy!


(WET PUSSYCAT)
For those of you who may be loyal readers (yes I am talking about my poor, long suffering close friends and family members) you might remember a few months ago I mentioned how my father kindly built a fishpond in my backyard. As u can see in the picture above ... it looks remarkably like a crypt, only minus a lid and the obligatory dead body.

Anyway, the significance of posting the picture of my fab fishpond is to give an illustration to my story about the neighbours cat.

The afternoon was warm .. and my new co-worker Matthew, and I were sitting out by my fishpond soaking up the tranquil surroundings and good company... and just as I swear I could hear Michael Caton uttering "how's the serenity" the scrawny, flee-infested cat from next door, put its head over my 8 foot high fence, clawed its way to the top ... then launched itself from the fence, into the pond.

Now, I know cats are hardly intelligent ...but HELLO!! ... when did they become so fucking stupid? And I thought the evil little things were supposed to hate water? Anyway, Matthew and I just sat there ... cab savs in hand, mouths open, and staring in utter disbelief at the soggy cat scrambling around my crypt-like fishpond.

I'm not sure if the worrying part was that neither of us jumped to our feet and walked the 3 metres to rescue the cat, or that the cat seemed more interested in dining on my bloody fish than rescuing itself.

It did eventually drag itself out, but not without terrifying my fish. However, they are fish ... they're supposed to be hunted (the law of the umm... ocean and all) and I'd hate to think they were getting too comfortable in my pond.

Plus, the flying cat bit certainly gave us a damn good laugh... it would've been well worth losing a few fish for!

15 generic goldfish .... $45 ....flying, drowning, flailing cat .... priceless!

BTW - I've changed my email address. The "c" now has a "k"

*Iron Monkey ... hope you mend real soon! Glad to see you're back blogging on a regular basis.*

Devoted to Viggo
Second Opinion.. The glow inside another red-crossed pelvis will drain when they crush that little bulb. Menstrual minstrels drift in from the weedless garden. The immaculate blue flame from the fake fireplace burns in the corner of my eye. Can't stop staring at nothing. A gloved hand opens the door, and the man enters soothingly, with an air of respect for the dead. Encourages us to look on the bright side. Black pants hide your pain afterwards, and there's a cookie on a napkin and a paper cup of red juice to replace your strength. We drive home without blinking because the sun isn't real .. . -Viggo Mortensen
