Doo Doo

I got nothing this week to post except for the love of a dictionary. It's a slow week creatively.

This week's Poetry Thursday is to create a poem out of obvious lies; the sky waxes green when the moon rises. I would have thought creating obvious lies would have sent my juices soaring. Oh well.

On the way to work, I thought about no longer valid pop references such as Alex P. Keaton and the eternalness of other references like Spicoli. Sometimes I feel old.

A friend once advised such thoughts, like feeling old, were poisonous and my thinking those thoughts were a contradiction. Maybe he thought those thoughts were a contradiction because I had only just showed him the saliva chewed crackers in my mouth.

Hey, doesn't everyone like a little seefood?

Actually just hit the comments section. All the entries this week are excellent.

I am begining to think that feeling old is better for my creativity- there's a lot of freedom in being past this and that- freedom to lie a lot more :-) -

Have you read the Professor and the Madman about the OEDictionary? It's one of my favorite books.

No I haven't, but I will now. Thanks for a new book to read; I am always looking for books to add to my reading list.

Ahh, even Alex P. Keaton grew up and got a real job and went back in time in a Delorean, and Spicoli avenged his dead daughter's murder after he was executed on death row.

Ok, I'm mixing up my movies.

I love making people of a certain age look at me in wonder, awe, suspicion and blankness. I know that one day the pop culture references they drop will be lost on young ears.
