Another breaking point

‘Is this your bread?’ ‘Yes, but put it down.’ The Battle of The Bread It had come to our attention in the highest offices of the Council of Modest Affairs than time, a local resource measured in uncertainty, was not being properly managed, and that well, it should. That intelligence was internal, and only contained […]

I Bow No Haircuts.

I Bow No Haircuts.

I dread haircuts. I try to never get them. Once in a while, though, I forget why, and, as if possessed by sudden madness, I surrender. I wanted the sightliest of trims. I even brought a picture. The only available lady seemed impatient, yet she wanted to cut my hair. I accepted her. She saw […]

A Toad in a Hole.

A Toad in a Hole.

See, this gentleman here was found in a hole. He managed to dodge a shovel digging in a small garden, because the whole thing is to be removed and paved with stones. I captured it, and asked for ransom. I wanted his toadstone, but it was a family heirloom. I gave him a plastic half […]

Call The Midwife and a Pool of Tears.

Call The Midwife and a Pool of Tears.

I have been watching the BBC’s Call The Midwife. I don’t understand why it makes me cry. I’m 23 years-old, yet the episodes make me extremely emotional. I wasn’t even that fond of babies. I always considered them too snotty. Neither I thought I would grow so fond of nuns. I always pictured them as […]

Overtaken

Where else would a Gingerbread Man live but here? More of Whole Cake Island. Sentient things and edible buildings? I bought it instantly. You see, I have the secret whim of visiting Japan alone, in the future. I have many friendships there. If I know Japanese I may be able to roam about aimless and […]

Talking to The Rocks. 

Today I remembered I have a blog. I had to check twice to make sure I didn’t have some pot plant dying somewhere, or had run out of meat for the vultures. I took my camera, and rations for three days, then I went outside to find some rocks to talk to. I like rocks […]

The Advent of Some Sugar.

The Advent of Some Sugar.

Greenery shies, out my window, but I dance. I’m happy, I don’t know why, and I find surprising that two good songs in my streaming service are called ‘Sugar.’ I fear that, instead of complex emotions, I have only the two sides of a coin. An uncooperative, rumbling, gloomy frown gives way to a brimming, sugary, […]

On procrastination and The Thief of Time.

I can think of a thousand things to do instead of what I should, but in the end I would feel better if I did it. I am a loafer, I know. I have been working almost 12 hours a day for a week, so I don’t mind work, but for the things I care […]

The Sounds of Spanish.

The Sounds of Spanish.

Now, we are going to learn a little bit of Spanish. I had a lil’ red book planned for years, so I may as well begin. Today’s lesson comprises phonetics, and introduces a couple of new characters. I have tried to make it as short as possible. The Sounds of Spanish. The Spanish language is […]

Crumbs

Crumbs

Here it is, finally, a blog of my own. I’m excited. I had been flirting with the idea for years, as with many things, and now I seem to be doing most of them, at once. You, Dear Reader, will find a bit of everything I always wanted to write about, and more of what I never […]
