Coined a new word. "birrakini"
Don't ask? That's like saying ... don't eat that cookie. There are people starving all over the world!... Do tell.
Birra = Guy
Bikini DEFINITELY != Guy!
that either should put birra in a bikini.....
or a martini birratini?
I think my work here is done *smirk*
I'm not going to ask... but by the sounds of it, this is something no one would ever want to see me wearing...
Shall I start a poll?
Oh man, I want to design one of these...so funny!
inappropriate toy fun
Any good ideas, VR? I have a few...man I love that guillotine girafef, though. I kinda want one. Couldn't you see these toys in the Addams' Family nursery?

Lol they are!

Neighborhood Stranger Playset I love. Well the site is own by a man who calls himself Cancer... :)
I wonder if SNL ever patented their old "Johnny Flame-O" Halloween costume. It's a can of gasoline and a book of matches for the ultimate realism in Halloween fun!
They missed the obvious; Easy-Bake Oven/Crystal Meth kit...
Didn't SNL also have "Bag O Glass?"
Oh my GOD...look how I spelled "giraffe!" Why didn't anyone tell me?! Soooo lucky I'm a comment slut or I'd have to fix it.
I think you need the candy van in there:D
I'm not sure about the "Bag 'O' Glass" but I know Mad Magazine offered a coupon for $7.00 off for a 50-pound bag of chippy ground glass.
I figured "girafef" was a French spelling or some kind of ballet term.
Vagabond Barbie abortion kit. (Includes: miniature hangar, pliers and zip-lock freezer bag.)
Ewww, no... that's too nasty. Can't post that!!
Suicidal/Emo Ken doll. Complete with pills, miniature razor, girl jeans, and blood refill!
I'm not sure about you, but I love Mr. Toast and if my mom would have served breakfast that looked like this, maybe I wouldn't be the protein bar and Diet coke morning person that I am.
During acupuncture school, some of my classmates thought that their cool tattoos meant one thing... only to find out they meant something very different O.o No real point to this except say, don't tattoo it unless you confirm the translation :)
There is a really cool Engineer where I work who is from China.
One of the operators has Chinese characters on his arm that HE thought meant "Strong Warrior". She saw it and burst out laughing....so hard that tears were running from her eyes. She still won't tell us what it REALLY means!
Sadly, my real name has no translation into Chinese. That is so true, the artist who did my tat told me he had a girl come in to get "sassy bitch" in Chinese characters. He said he tried to explain to her that that exact phrase didn't exist in Chinese and the closest he could do would actually mean "disobedient female dog" but she wouldn't listen.
*walks into room and softly closes door. Closes eyes and throws back her head. SCREEEEEEEEEAAAMMMMSSS long and loud*
Ah. Better. So, how are you, VR?
*rubs ears* What??? I can't hear you...
Tough day...SO ready to enjoy my evening with some relaxation.
*looks up from newspaper*
hmmm? how was your day, honeybunny?
*hands over the cheese plate*
You are on your own for the wine. :)

This is just for friends or anyone who may have an opinion on the matter.
I'm being encouraged to enter a contest. I have never done so before and I need one poem of any style that is 24 lines or less. If you have an opinion on which one you'd suggest I enter, please comment below.
I like Framework. :)
How much time do we have to rifle your undies?
Gosh... took me a while to find the ones that I have always loved. Why? I got to reading them again. :) You so need to enter a contest- share these words with others.
I loved Foci but its to long. :(
So I pick Genassist. Reminds me of your town, of life as a whole.
I have to send in the app by Nov 30, so plenty of time :)
Not until considering this did I realize the number of your poems that are 25 - 31 lines in length. And as I tried to find a favorite, I found that no such thing can exist among the bits of you so carefully weighed and offered. Poetry is such a personal thing, touching each with a different hand, the tracing of a finger or the tip of a lusty tongue. In each a part of the observer as crafted and guided by the teasing of the word-smith. So the best I can offer is a list which is but a slight reduction from the shear number and value you offer.

To pick just one... not possible.
That's a difficult choice, but I think my vote would go to ' My Comfortor'.
Awww he makes a handsome superhero. I will be sure to keep my eye out for him around here:D
Excellent! I heard from someone who heard it from someone who used to know someone, that he's seeking a sidekick. Word on the street is that his evil arch-nemesis, ThumbCat has some diabolical scheme afoot!
I have not seen the thumbcat in a while... could it be possible that it is, as we speak, sitting in a subterranean base surrounded by minions while stroking a tiny... human.
I am scared now. Save me The Urinator, you are my only hope!
Thumbcat is chewing on a plastic bag at my house as you type. She thinks by doing so she will distract me from sending out my S.O.S.
Neither hydrant nor villain are safe.
But.. but.. I thought we were playing roulette...
Meeper had journal viewers from 1969: that oughta be worth something!
Meeper's journal is a time machine!
defense mechanism: having a dispenser of Tuck's pads handy after a long day of horseback riding :P
It's a shame we have to be so specific as to the part of the horse. Why isn't "horse riding" sufficient? ;)
Uhm... don't answer that.
Stabb and I have been talking about Crime and Punishment. The discussions have been in depth and really thought-provoking. He is just finishing the book. I read it when I was very young...the summer after eighth grade. Having an adult and an adolescent perspective has made me revisit what that book meant to me.
Because I was young and American, the themes in the book were VERY heavy and dark. It was the first book I had read that took an existential look at man and how he views himself and his place in the world. I watched as Raskolnikov became spiritually and physically sick. I WORE that book for years after I read it. In many ways, I still do. I recall vividly the man who beat his horse while others looked on. It was surreal and deeply disturbing to my young self.
I will never forget it. In short, it was a great book that made me think differently. Last summer, I tried to read The Brothers Karamazov. It is also by Dostoevsky. My father referenced this book my whole life and I REALLY wanted to read it. I have rarely had to force myself to get through a book like I did with this one. I absolutely slogged through and eventually, I set it aside. Maybe one day I'll feel the need to visit that bizarre family again when I have time and great will.
For now, we're going to have a fun read. We're going to check out some sci-fi. We're going to read the Way series by Greg Bear. The first one is called Eon. It is an older trilogy that's considered sci-fi classic now. I'm excited and can't wait to get started! We'll probably be talking about them a good bit, so if you want to pick up a copy and join us, please come on!
I'm really looking forward to getting a bit of fiction in that's more light on the soul. Although the reviews of The Way do seem to show it being a far out story.
It's always good to read with you.
Ah, I love Dostoevsky!
Have you read Notes From Underground? It's my favourite of his. ^.^
bah....egomanism or altruism, the ideas are obviously mututally exclusive. There is no way that Utilitarianism could ever defeat the argument of faith in a society that has already been exposed to Christianity. Good for D..fighting the 17th century hyper-rational Russians, however Hayek remains correct: It is too difficult for human reason to comprehend its own limitations.
Wow, Sevenn...I didn't even know Salma was a philosopher!
I so liked 'Crime & Punishment.'
As good, for different reason's as 'Kingdom Of Fear.'
Soooo...if this guy had the rank of, say...Captain...who might he remind you of? hmmmm?
ha! Captain Glooooooooooooobe Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeead!!!!!!!!!!!
No offense to our British brethren, but he has the features of Prince Charles.
My former, CO. O.o
How did you get a copy of my driver's license photo?

A local gym went out of business here and I bought a bunch of their equipment at 10% of its value. I now have all of these machines, except the tricep/bicep machine in the lower left hand corner. I also bought two of the teak running boards they had for stationary cardio. Circuit training is awesome!
I'm too tired? (I can always find an excuse.) :)
Looking forward to hearing you get all hot and sweaty when we talk on the phone again. You are going to end up with abs of steel:D
Oh, stabb, I feel for ya! ;P
That is way cool.
I didn't know torture devices where being sold openly and on sale????
Wow! Thank you, Images...I never even noticed.
Congrates.. here's to many more..
You're very welcome :)
Congratulations! Hope you have many, many more. :D
Well done lol
Wow... that's inspiration to find words in images.
I love to see that you're still taking pictures! :)
Good ones too!
I see your walking stick, where's your stone fish?
I love the living stick! :D I so want to be in your garden now:)
Wow, just plain wow
Woooo! New pictures!
Now I'm jealous... I HAVE to get a macro lens.
Wonderful shots! You always help us see the world as you see it.... in a way only you can.
I had a giant walking leaf in my hands once.
Incredibly strange feeling. It was perfectly shifting it's whole bodyweight from side to side, trying to look like it was a real leaf blowing in the wind.
My skin color must have been somewhat annoying to it.
