armpits, and life...

Prithee what news of this muggly mulch of friv and splu that we call home?

Well, we've furtled in the evening mists and under the gibbous moon, lost, found, now you seem now you don't, I've fallen in a hole.

Barfed great swathes of onerous pricklies up bathroom walls and hallway carpets ("what made me eat it dad?", " well he did, he made me, it was stuck to his nose").

Woken in the smelly used sock of Bacchus' laundry basket amongst the fetid rummage of the previous night's debauch (far too often than is wise or strictly necessary).

Slept fitful churning...grumbled, gnashed and gurgled through troubled dreams of giant rabbits, swirling smoky overcrowded clouds of crows or old cheese sandwiches fallen behind overstuffed sofas, each to our own as is our want.

Gyred mightily and sprung sprightly from a standing start, involuntary aerobatics to accompany each whistle and banshee screech and pyrotechnic thud of light in the November night sky, "I don't know dad, I don't know why, it's louder in my head", bladder bursting jet propelled impropriety at every starburst shell or blast-it-to-buggeration-super-grenade-repeater, damn you Fawkes you were a fucker, we'd piss in your hat if you were here.

Made tea, in quantities to fill an effelumps bath, or ship a ship to Mandalay, and left said tea as tasting sad.

Been a single, furry ball, too may legs, too many heads on the fireside rug.

Frosted, toasted and roasted all in a single day.

Called it a day

Called it a weekend and then a week.

Call it a what you will, it's what we do.

Hmmm. Busy, aren't you?

Jenn said...

Wow. Burning the midnight oil, I'd say.

Sandra said...

Lewis Carrol has been reincarnated and got himself a blog in the 21st century. It's uncanny Col, you might actually be him.

Little known fact, did you know that Lewis Carroll was a Jack The Ripper suspect?

Pam said...

Well, not being very literary...but having a fairly large vocabulary, of the American kind that is....I had to go look up some of these words! ;0]
Most appear to be slang and so the meaning is lost on me, much like Don Cheadle's use of 'Barney' in Ocean's 11....that is until he explained it.
Prithee...truly a beautiful archiac word (at least I am assuming so). I do know of who and what you are referring to when you invoke Bacchus and Fawkes, thank heavens for that or surely I would have thought myself a complete and utter idiot.

Quite a missive of alliterative ramblings and quite amusing to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Jessica said...

I agree with Sandra - love the organization and word choices here....also very nice to hear your voice today!

Wendy said...

Oh yes Sandra!! VERY Lewis Carroll! Will you teach me how to shrink or grow? Do you see a grin without a cat?? Have you been into that bottle that says "Drink Me" again??!?!

my first time visiting your blog, had to comment and tell you i have hardly ever read such difficult english language. i really do need a dictionary with your blog!:)

Wendy said...

Hey Col ... what is a 'slapper' in British terms? Is it a wanker? I heard it in a movie ... that and "bullocks". What are they?

"Frosted, toasted and roasted all in a single day."

I sure would like to be toasted right about now. That's just the kind of day I'm having...;0

(Toasted DOES mean the same thing here as it does over there, doesn't it? If not, then nevermind!)
