Submerged and Coming Up for Air


   Swimming in water.  Coming up for air.  Going down again.

   Mermaid Woman transforming and yet the same as before.

   Whatever element I find myself in I could adapt.

    Even if I had to die to stay there.

    No air, you say, o… Read full post »

Space Debris Could Land on My Head Today

  I wouldn't mind if the big hunk of the satellite junk came down in my yard.  They say that it will be about the size of a refrigerator.  They also say not to go close to the fizzling mess as it is the property of the US Government and might… Read full post »

Arms Like Hams

  I have big upper arms.  Michele Obama has lean, muscular upper arms. 

      Sometimes I feel bad about my upper arms.  I can make them wiggle with the slightest touch and I always wear sleeves to make them look slimer.  I crop any picture that shows the… Read full post »

The Power of "Uh Huh".

  Agreement.  People want to know they can tell you anything and you will just listen without judgment or offering solutions.  I am the queen of judgments and solutions so it is very difficult for me to just listen. Then I learned about the power of "uh huh".

  The world went dark in a moment.  A power unit in Arizona triggered a massive outage and it has been traced to an employee removing a monitor from that unit. It is unusual that it took down the power from so many systems that were linked. It is impressive that… Read full post »

Reading for Kids and Adults

Would I like to live in a Harem?


      Being entertained, sheltered, taken care of and adored doesn't sound like a bad gig.  I can imagine myself immersed in the domestic arts, raising children and having sex once in awhile with a strong, attentive fellow.
