The Valentine Dance.

slis2

I go all out in the Valentine Season.


slis1

There are so many deliveries to the house ... flowers, chocolates, perfume, gifts, cards, marching bands, half naked calendar guys, the watermelon truck ...

I like all the neighbours to be really jelly.  I decorate the whole house like one big Valentine box and have stuff stacked outside.  I wander around the yard, and meet the delivery guys with loud exclamations, "Oh another one????   Where oh where will I put that one?  The house is full!  a he he he he he."  Then I take pics of me and put them on all the social media.


slis3


I think therapists really underestimate the damage done to kids when they don't receive any Valentines at school.  Some people never get over it.

How My Day Went.

k4

I am sick.  I have the flu.  Bubonic Hubby is fine though now, thanks for asking.

k5

He left me at home today to moan and whine into the silence of the house.  He is tired of moaning and whining, even though it has been his own moaning and whining over the past week.

I didn't even moan and whine ... yet.

k3

I just laid out a really cute nurse's uniform for him to wear  . . .

Time Waits For No-one.

aa3a1

I have always wondered what would happen if we just stopped marking time.  Like whose life was so dull that they took the time to figure out the whole around the sun crap and that we should use that to to run our lives?

aa3a3

I tried to protest when they started teaching us how to tell time but that just landed me inside during recess and you can't rule the playground if you are not on the playground.  I begrudgingly went along with it but I always managed to ditch the candles off my birthday cake at my earliest opportunity.  It was my silent protest against aging.

I think marking time is unhealthy.  It adds weight, gives you wrinkles and makes your boobs unperk.  If we are going to bag sugar and make everyone eat their vegetables, we should do away with time as well.

It would have made for a lot happier childhood if there had not been a bed time just because it was getting late. We could still be out there playing hide and seek and I could have skipped the whole incident with the chickens, the red paint and the 18 cases of beer.  My grandparents might have even lived longer if THAT had never happened.  

aa3a2

I feel really bad that we had to cut so many games of hide and seek short because Grandma yelled out, "Bedtime!" and Grandpa started to take off his belt.  

If anyone EVER finds my cousin hidden somewhere around that farm, I hope he understands that time waits for no-one.

Why I Was Born to Live in Australia.

xx2

In Canada everyone preaches at you about running around barefoot.

  xx1

They tell you that you might stub your toes, step on a thistle or a sharp rock, drop something hot or heavy on your toes, or step in something really icky. I mean it would have to be really icky to be preferable to my brother putting his feet in his stinky runners every day. And that is just in the summer time.

In the winter they are on and on about freezing your feet and losing your toes in the snow and who do we think is going to go out there looking for the toes? No-one! Because first of all no-one is that stupid and second of all it wouldn't do any good. You can't sew frozen toes back onto your foot once they fall off. (Don't ask an adult who says that to you how they know these things because to suggest to them that unless they have actually done that, they really can't say for sure that it doesn't work, is not a good move. Rule of thumb ... once the parental units are on a roll screaming and ranting nonsense, best let them ride that wave out until it is on the shore, everyone has changed out of their bathing suits, driven home and is back in front of the television set.)

 For that reason we must wear shoes. In fact,most stores make it clear, "No shirts, no shoes, no service."

 And then I moved to Australia.

  xx3 

 I run around all day without shoes ... or a shirt ... and I still get served.

 Awesome country.

Never More.

gg1

I had a brief, intense, relationship with Edgar Allen Poe in my pre-teen years.  I discovered his dark seductive voice in a collection that was hidden behind the encyclopedias in our library.

Anything hidden speaks to pre-teen girls.  It says, "You must read me."  Pre-teen girls are required to know stuff so that they have things to tell other girls and thereby establish their position in the hen house to prevent being pecked to death and ending up in chicken mcnugget bits all over the floor.

gg2

I thought he would be dark and disturbing and very good looking and of course, in love with me.  That is the other thing about pre-teen girls, all men are handsome and in love with us.  That is because we have no men around us, we do not look at the pre-pubescent pimply smelly boys as even candidates, we are dreaming men.  Even though we have no idea what we would do with a man, we like to pretend we know.  It is the foundation for womanhood . . . the ability to pretend things not in existence.

We need all men to be in love with us, again .. chickens, hen house, order, pecking, chicken mcnuggets ....

This is the time where we build up our resistance to the actual reality of who men are and what they want.  It is a training ground and for me ... Edgar Allen Poe was my master.

gg3

These may seem like just entertaining little stories to you but my hubby really appreciates my sharing these kind of insights into why I am the way I am.

It helps him be a little more willing when I ask him to put the crows costume on.

Edgar Allen Poe NEVER asked anyone if they were in the mood before he wrote them bricked into a wall.  He just took control.

I am a Type A personality.

My hubby is a crow.

Butterfly Butterfly On My Nose ....

jj2

Don't you love these butterfly hat things that everyone seems to be wearing?  I mean everyone.  I think I saw three women in my little hick Australian town alone.

jj3

Hubby said the one lady had flies, not butterflies.  I didn't have my glasses with me so he may have been right but seriously, aren't these pretty?

I thought at first you could glue gun them on but then there was all that screaming.  Butterflies scream ... really high pitched ... like higher than dog hearing high.  I think only delicate fashionistas can hear them .. like me.  They were screaming .... and squirming ... and then the hat stinks after about 3 weeks and when the wind picks up those wings are brittle and they break off and it looks like a hat made up of the bodies of brittle winged jagged dead butterflies . . . which it is.

I think that is what they meant when they said "life imitating art."

Then I tried smearing peanut butter on my head to attract them.  Then honey.  It didn't work, but a couple of cows followed me around and licked me a lot.  2 cows do not speak to fashion like butterflies do, no matter how fabulous the gown is that you are wearing.

That left me with two choices, make my head a salt lick to attract them or smear a brew of rotting fruit, molasses, gatorade and brown sugar on my head.  I like to imagine how someone came up with that combination.  I imagine they tried coke, and then beer, and then kool aide and finally ... finally someone threw in some gatorade and voila, butterflies magically swarmed!

jj1

So when you consider what pics you are going to like on flickr, or which blogger you are going to vote for as being a true fashionista, please consider that I smeared that shit all on my head and managed to stand here and look calm, serene and beautiful.   I did this between gagging and trying to keep humping butterflies from turning the whole scene into some kind of obscene orgy.  THAT is professionalism. 

Oh and you  have to admit that the flies it also attracted create a kind of airy texture to the hat .. sort of like baby's breath amongst the flowers only they are black instead of white . . .  and they fly . . . and buzz . . . and you don't want to know where they have been.

My Peeps are Cool.

witwq2

Sometimes I like to go out into a field and just talk to my peeps.

witwq1

I say to them, "Peeps, it's me Blissy.  Just wanted to come out here and let you know everything is good and that you should carry on .. being you ... while I be me.  We be who we are right?"

And then I hang around for some cookies and kool aide and small talk.

Peeps like that you take the time to hang with them.  They like that you show up and share words of wisdom.  Peeps wait in the field for me to come and talk to them.  Except for the times when they follow me into the closet or the bathroom and stuff.  Then I have to put my foot down and tell them I have boundaries. The fences in those fields are there for a reason.

witwq3


Cows, on the other hand, are completely oblivious to the whole process.  They are pretty insensitive.  But I may be winning them over one by one ... it's the kool aide ... the red stuff.  I think it makes them high.  They look more dazed and confused than normal and they spend a long time smiling off into the distance.

When a cow smiles, it is a guarantee they are high.

Trust me.

I grew up on a dairy farm with a brother who experimented with drugs ... and cows ...

Fashion Crosses the Line.

vvvp1

Black leather was always the sign of the "bad guys."  We knew this because Hollywood taught us well.  Well . . . unless there was a "laugh track" accompanying the show.  Then it was probably likely you were watching either "Happy Days" or "Welcome Back Kotter," and if there was dancing and singing, it was "Grease."


vvvp2 The problem is that fashion showed up and suddenly you had models named "Bambi" and "Heidi" wearing black leather and Barbie started showing up with it, and then the Cabbage Patch Kids. It was a confusing time. We could no longer easily tell the difference between the good guys and the bad guys. 

This was an even bigger upset than the one that happened when everyone stopped wearing black or white cowboy hats.

Fashion keeps messing things up for all of us.

Then they brought in plastic surgery and everyone could be beautiful, even the bad guys.   It meant we were all going to go through life being tricked by bad people dressing and looking like good people and good people dressing and looking like bad people.

  vvvp3
I still cannot allow my Barbies and Cabbage Patch kids to play with the My Little Pony's or my Strawberry Shortcakes.  Fashion may have tossed frivolous profiling to the wind, but I have a strong line drawn in the cement surrounding my house.

I am the attractive one standing with the shotgun in front of the Toybox with the white cowboy hat and white angel gown.

Born to be Feminine.

ystys1 

 I am pretty sure I was born in the wrong time period. I have always felt an infinity towards the long dresses and the very feminine woman.  Those fairy tale princesses may have been speaking to the rest of you about the prince charming showing up on his white horse but I was a realist.  None of the real life princes were good looking, and I already had my own white horse.  I was taken in by the flowing dresses and the flowing hair.

  ystys2

Why else would I have spent years as a child with a skirt on my head, pretending it was long hair?

 My grandparents never let me have long hair until I was old enough to have read up on civil rights and could successfully wrestle the scissors out of their hands, and/or jump from a speeding half ton on the way to the hairdressers.

 I was finally able to put away that skirt and flick my own hair off my shoulder.

  ystys3

 It was a good thing too ... my grandfather was really missing his favourite skirt.

The Clouds Speak To Me.

csbc2 

 It is supposed to rain.

I am like one of those kids you read about who cling to the things of childhood and it is until they are like 38 that some psychiatrist suggests shock treatment to help you "get over" your insisting that Santa Claus is real.

  csbc1 

 If you don't convert to adulthood in the usual manner, they have cattle prods.

At the gateway you must surrender all the toys, put on your sturdy underwear, and take your place in the line that leads to mind numbing regularity.

So I am standing outside searching the heavens looking for the dark clouds. I stare in disbelief as cloud bank after cloud bank rumbles straight towards us, warnings issued, and then POOF it is just gone from overhead and the rain is something happening to someone else's day . . . anywhere but here.

I curse the heavens.

I curse the weatherman.

I curse the neighbour because well ... we are beyond needing reasons to curse one another and I was outside anyway.

  csbc3

So no rain yet.  I even left the windows wide open and drove away for the afternoon.  I am tempting fate.  I am mocking it ... I don't get it.  I used to be so good at hooking my brother ... is this part of getting older?  Am I losing it?  What will I do if I cannot stir up all kinds of things??  Who AM I if I am not a shit disturber?

I need more treatment.

I keep seeing Santa Claus in the rain clouds.

A Snowy Blowy Standard For Us All.

33

They like to show all those videos of beautiful women cavorting in the snow.  And people believe it.

34

Because the idea that a woman takes all that time to do her hair perfectly and to paint roller on her make-up and have perfect nails  and does it so she can put on a jacket with a hood that makes your hair go completely static infused, puts on mitts that break her nails and has make-up on so that when she gets snow all over her face (think time delayed bucket of water - last from the cold into the warm car or house where the heat blast melts it in like a nanosecond)) it will be a river of colours streaming down her face.

Women do that.

Because it is so worth it.

Someone says, "Ella, stay inside by the fire with your glass of wine and let me draw you a bubble bath," and she says, "Stuff that, where are my snow pants.  I am going out to cavort in the sub zero cold with the snow and the frost bite."

37

Because selling Sears Robuck or Kodak Cameras, or Energizer Batteries is a calling.  That kind of shit goes on tombstones when we pass on because it is a standard for women everywhere.

We Are All Apples in the Pie of Life.

h3a

Hubby is busy trying to tend to his fruit trees. We have been wondering why we have not had any custard apples.

  h1a

Turns out the fruit is celibately virginal and requires someone to gather the male pollen which they are in the morning and put it with the female pollen which they turn into in the afternoon. (It could be the other way around .. I freely admit that when discussing the sexual nature of an apple, I was not completely riveted, nor was I hanging on hubby's every word.)

The bees will not go near them.

 Bees are apparently gender snobs and I think someone should immediately fund a whole programme to be paid for by the extra tax dollars we gather and have not yet spent on prostitutes for all the members of parliament. We need to take the message to the hives. Custard Apples are just like all the other fruits and are no more or more less on the food pyramid just because they are ambivalent about their sex and need help to create babies. They are not that different from many ministers or priests.

And fruit is even better for your health than religion is.

  h4ab

Isn't it awesome how Mother Nature is always a mother, always teaching us, always asking us to play nice with one another?  Isn't it cool that you think you are just breeding fruit and you are actually right in the middle of a metaphor of life and all that is wrong with it and how we judge people for ridiculous things when it really does not matter because in the end all the apples can just be together in a pie and make a dessert served with ice cream.

If you want to get a tattoo of that I would completely understand and not sue you for stealing it.   I think some movements are just that much bigger than the mind that conceives them ...

This would be a perfect example of that.

Leaving On A Jet Plane.

ptts1

I hate when you are sitting in a group of people chatting and some woman starts talking about how she can just put what she needs in a handbag and travel for 3 years.  

ptts2

Like what happened to raise your hand and wait for someone to ask you to speak?  That worked well all through school right?  We should seriously think about reinstating that.

I take 8 trunks and then have to work my way back to what the planes allow.  I don't know how to choose between 18 pairs of shoes.  I need choices and no, the pink sandals are not at all like the hot pink ones.  Come on, are you blind???

I am an expert at getting things through the weigh in station. Like pack your extra large purse (no-one ever weighs that) wear 3-4 sets of clothes (no-one ever weighs you) and make sure you fill all your pockets.  Put as much stuff as you can in the laptop case and then carry several things in your hands.  That lady behind the counter cannot see much on the other side of the counter.

Once you are through you can put all that extra stuff into the carry on.  

ptts3

Just make sure that you never ever let anyone on the plane help you lift that puppy into the overhead.  If it falls on them it could kill them.  They don't care so much about the dead bodies but if they find out you were over the weight limit ... 10 - 15 years easily.

This is not a how-to blog meant to encourage people to break the law .. this is a sharing ... a confession ... a cry for help ... made in a forest ... where there is no-one there to hear me so technically there is no sound.  This post will erase in a nanosecond ... it is typed with self dissolving virtual typing stuff.  Weightless.  Take as much of it on the plane as you want.

A Legal Matter.

dwbif1 

 I have a pet gecko that hangs with me every night.

  dwbif2

Once we got over his fear - bugs are a good incentive - we became good and fast friends. I type and he runs around the outside of the screen eating bugs.

I talk, he listens.

 He is probably one of  the best friends I have ever had.

He even lets me hold the remote.

dwbif3

My mother in law ran to get my hubby, she told him I was talking to myself in the room ... pfft .. a lot she knows.  I mean the gecko wasn't hiding or anything, he was there in plain sight.  I'd like her to try and sell that one to the judge ... talking to no-one.  I even have pics of me and gecko doing duck lips for snapchat . No-one is going to buy her story that I am losing it this time, let me tell you.

Which is exactly why I am telling you.  Are you available for court???  Yes mom, I mean you.  Who else reads this blog???

Just Imagine.

itt1

Almost all pills here in Australia come in blister backs because well, basically, in this heat and humidity everything just kind of eventually melts.

itt2

This is fine except there should be grave warnings ... like I am thinking some kind of flashing neon sign  . . . or a blow up attendant to make sure you are safe . . . because those things can be dangerous.

Imagine if you popped a couple of pills out into your hand, you are in a hurry, and you grab the glass, turn on the tap, fill the glass with enough water, throw the pills into your mouth, take a drink and swallow ...

So far so good right?

And then suddenly you realize something is stuck in your throat and you swallow and swallow and pour more water and drink that glass ... and then another one ... and another ... and you cough and cough and cough and it is still stuck and you realize ... it is not a pill ... it is sharp ... it is like metal ....

And you grab the blister pack and yes the backing is not still attached and it is not on the floor and you know you have a piece of foil stuck on your throat and it is not moving and you are probably going to die of tin foil poisoning so you run around the house with your hands to your throat only there isn't anyone home and you forget what the emergency number is because you are in a foreign country and you only know it is NOT 9-1-1.  And you are crying and you run outside and run up and down the street trying to wave down neighbours, or cars . . .  or low flying planes . . .  and then you realize you have no clothes on and you are scaring people so you run back into the house and drink more water and cough more.

And then it all sets in that there is no help and you are actually going to die and so you write out a quick will and imagine the funeral and how everyone will weep and just when you are about to lay out the clothes for the casket and in the midst of you screaming up at the heavens, "Why God, why do the good people all die young?" you suddenly realize that it has moved and you have swallowed it and you are actually going to live and that maybe there really is a God.

And then you have to pee because you drank so much water.

Just imagine that will you?  That could happen and it would be really really bad right?  I can't tell you how I know this, but I just do.  No-one should ever have to experience that.

This Is Just So Sad.

w1a

There was some big issue growing up about not playing with the wolves.

  w2a

My grandparents were killjoys .. . we were not allowed to name the farm animals because they were food and we weren't allowed to play with the wild animals because it interferes with the natural order of things. That left me with no-one to play with but my brother  . . . which is exactly what I tell every therapist I have ever had to deal with.

 And you know what?

  w3a

Every therapist I have ever dealt with immediately released me with an open prescription to any drug I wanted AND they all still send me birthday cards and gifts every year.

Some things are just so terrible that even the cold heart of psychiatry is moved.

 I move people because I was not allowed to play with the wolves.

Pay No Attention To Anything You Read In The Newspapers.

 My neighbours are away, have been since summer holidays started just prior to Christmas.

  sott2

They are not planning to be back any time soon.

Meanwhile family are taking care of the yard etc. The yard is fine, thanks for asking. However the inside of the house is not fine. Inside the house a high pitched alarm has been going off for over a week. I would say it was a smoke detector except there is no fire, no smoke, not even any excessive heavy breathing.... AND the batteries have lasted through hours of endless beeping. It goes on and off without any rhyme or reason sometimes for mere seconds, sometimes for hours.

Did I mention that no-one has a key for the house?

So ya, I understand how sound is used as torture. Not even my headphones and my cranked music can obliterate the sound. I suppose I should be standing and applauding for the fire alarm company that created a sound that cannot be ignored AND the battery company who clearly can dance circles around the energizer bunny. I plan on finding out which batteries they use because I find the once every 3 year or so nanosecond beeping of our smoke detectors when the battery fails to be unbearable (yes that was a truthful statement laced with sarcasm ... sorry if I dripped some on you .. I know like battery acid right???)

 I tried to explain to the police and the very polite relatives of our MIA neighbours that I am not coping well. They laugh and thank me for letting them know and talk about how there is nothing they can do and drive away ... away from the sound and the insane lady standing in the middle of street drooling on the pavement.

If I disappear suddenly please send flowers and well wishes to the psyche ward of my local hospital.  Please pay no attention to any outrageous stories about any rampage, bunnies, boiling water, or teeth hanging from the trees.  I will not know anything about any of that stuff.  I never do.
