Pinned toot


Thank you for linking.
So you know what I'm thinking.
It's coffee I'm drinking.
From hard work, I'm shrinking.

Tomorrow's a dream.
So for today, I'll scheme.
Filling out a paperless ream,
With no solid, fixed theme.

i suspect Nugenix should probably be called Oldgenix, considering the segment of the population running to buy it.

I wonder.

Would there be anyone out there be interested in watching a reality series about the south Florida beach crowd called...

"Growing up Flip Flop"


/ˈheɪnəs/ /ˈhiːnəs/
(of a person or wrongful act, especially a crime) utterly odious or wicked.

Late Middle English from Old French haineus, from hair ‘to hate’, of Germanic origin.


Snidely Whiplash is famous in the cartoon world for the heinous crime of tying Nell Fenwick to the train tracks. He might have been seen as even nastier if he'd used chain!

I was recently reading a science fiction story about a scientist visiting with different cultures...

...then I realized she was talking about bacterial cultures.

About your next rant.
Will it be relevant?
Consider forgoing it
If the evidence is scant.

Start now. Create!
It's never too late.
A rhyme in time
Is really sublime.

It may never end...may it never end!

The muse speaks to me... that's just mews from my hungry cat.

Reading it again, I think I'd change the final line to "Find here their cozy homes."

Everything is a Work in Progress.

It is difficult to specify the exact degree to which the temperature will rise during the day.

Forecasters here typically say something like "It will be in the upper 40s." Of course in countries using metric temperatures, that is far from good news.

I'm looking for a free German dictionary to use for a dict server on a Debian system and can't find it. What I want is something like the dict-gcide package.

「… definitions from WordNet, the Century Dictionary, 1906, and many additional definitions contributed by volunteers.」

But in German? Some Wörterbuch, an old Duden edition, something Goethe and Schiller might have used? 😃

I mean, there are many translation dictionaries available. But what do poets use? 🙄

Not long tomes
Shared rhymes by the ounce
Find here their homes.

Tricked out might be a better description than folksy for an accountant from Texas who wears both a Stetson hat and fancy cowboy boots to his office.

I think that I have put down roots
Here among the streams of toots
Associated with the Mastodon.arts
Feeling really comfy in these parts.

Thank You:
@Curator @CuratorClassic

Got that shut-in feeling
This is how I'm dealing.
A bag of chips later
Not feeling any greater.

To deal with that strange itchin'
Walking to the kitchen
To get more munchy stuff.
Is not exercise enough

I need to climb some stairs
Or vacuum those stray hairs
Move the muscle masses
Till the food urge passes!

In these current times of strife
Schools are closed, you see.
Students' minds, though, need not be.
Learning is full-time, for your life.
