MacArthur Park

You see there's this guy in love with this girl and they meet almost every day in the park for lunch. It's a nice park and people have birthday parties there with cakes and candles and all that.

I dunno if the girl's hot for the guy or not but she breaks up with him and he's like really bummed and feels like he'll never love like that again, that the ingredients that made up their relationship were just so special that it's like a cake that he made and someone left it out in the rain and it's fucked and he's lost the recipe...

I made this sculpture all about it...

I think it needs more trees.

Skwishee over at Just a Mum? tagged me! in a game of tag - a game where you tag people but not like the tag where you can be pushed over and land in a pile of dog shit, the sort of tag where you answer strange questions with strange answers and ask other bloggers strange questions.

I am required to supply eleven random facts about myself, answer Skwishee's eleven questions and then pose eleven questions to other bloggers.

Here are 11 random facts about me...
1. I can touch my nose with my tongue.

2. When I was young I hated cooked peas and would hold them in my mouth at the end of a meal, excuse myself from the table, go out back and spit them out under the house.

3. I had a nightmare last night in which I was attracted to a short bad man.

4. I enjoy picking my nose.

5. I haven't cleaned my car for 6 months.

6. I have nice ears.

7. I had a tofu burger for dinner.

8. 25 years ago I was assailed by a 'flasher' in Greece that made me giggle.

9. I have a bat roosting above my bed.

10. I have a scented yellow rose growing in my front garden.

11. My dog is snoring as I write this.

Now to answer Skwishee's questions, some of which were quite tricky.

1. Name a book that somehow changed you. How?
'Housekeeping' by Marilynne Robinson. It made me feel it was okay to be who I am.

2. If someone were to cook you the perfect meal, what would it be?
Gado Gado.

3. Who do you want to be when you grow up?
Me, but grownup.

4. You find a wallet containing $20,000 on the ground, containing no identification. What do you do?
I'd probably give it to the police, f**k it!

5. Name one completely irrational fear that you've got.
Mine are all rational.

6. Give me three songs that you're embarrassed to admit you like.
Oh that's easy -
'MacArthur Park' by Jimmy Webb.
'Wichita Lineman' by Jimmy Webb.
'You Sexy Thing' by Hot Chocolate.
There's more if you want...

7. What is one thing you absolutely love about yourself?
Crikey this is a hard question...but... I do love that I will do stuff on my own, instead of waiting for company.

8. If you could be doing ANYTHING right now, what would it be?
Camping on my own by a mountain stream.

9. What's the best thing that happened to you this week?
The 7am Saturday morning sit at the meditation retreat I attended on the weekend.

10. If you could perfect one skill overnight, what would it be?
Damn these are hard questions Skwishee! Needlepoint - no badminton - no pianoforte.

11. Tea or coffee?

Now to tag the next players in this little game!
Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to give eleven random facts about yourself, answer my eleven questions and then pose eleven questions to other bloggers.

I'm not good with following rules and I've lost track of who has been tagged already so...'Step right up and take a tag anybody! anybody?'

Here's my eleven questions.

1. What is your favourite piece of clothing?
2.  If you could invite anyone to dinner who would it be?
3. What would you save (one item and the family is safe) if your house was burning down?
4. What's your favourite movie?
5. What is something that annoys you about yourself?
6. Describe yourself in one word.
7. Favourite dream job?
8. What food do you detest more than anything?
9. What do you hate shopping for the most?
10. Name one regret.
11. What colour underpants do you have on?

If no one steps up to bat I will see who I can nab...

Japonica Walks on Water

Japonica and Gingko met in captivity, indefinite detention, deprived of food and water and with little access to sunlight. Asian roots brought them together, with Japonica being of Japanese origin and Gingko, Chinese. It was their camaraderie that kept them alive, each of them strangers in a strange land.

Love blossomed in their black cell and it was with regret that Japonica left her lover when freedom was granted her. She was released to spend her final days at an education and research facility in Coffs Harbour Australia where she succumbed to chlorosis...

Soft pink petals fall
freedom in eternity
she walks on water
