"If they ask you who you're meant to be, just tell them you're dressed as yourself, because that's what you're going to have to be for the rest of your life." - Mrs Dahl's to her son, Roald.
What has happened now?Best way to shut down politicians is not to have a TV like moi!
Politicians in real life.
we boo and hiss and spit on them!
is you fine? You don't sound well this week, Blue
Not too fine. Been asleep sll weekend.
sending you positive energy, Randy Mandy
Thanks, Dezy. I need a couple of days to get back on my feet, is all.
I'm guessing this is in reference to Trump's latest crazy idea? Or someone else's?
Someone much worse.
Yep, I felt/feel the same way. I wrote about it too on Monday, though I was much more verbose and you packed the exact same sentiment into a single stanza.
I know. I read a couple of days ago.
Gussing games. You can't be talking about Trump because he isnt apolititian. Perhaps bosses where you teach and that is where you'd be "out" ofwork if you didn't need the dough (money?) OR you are a bread maker and someone is preventing you from getting the ingredients for the bread dough? I know just what that feels like..... the dough, I mean. I've been trying to bake the perfect loaf for over a year now. Always flops. But I did put some tiles in my oven and that helped. Can't afford a new oven. Maybe YOU need new tiles. Well anyway....it will feel better tomorrow.
It feels a bit better, but not a lot. What does make me feel better is your taking the time to read my posts and your wonderful comments. Too bad I need that dough - not doe haha - but the kinda dough to buy the perfect loaf.
Hi Blue....I am guessing "politics" at work....Someone acting like a jerk?Just give them a Beyoncé bum twerk...That oughta make you feel a wee bit more perk...Hope you figure everything out...Cheers!Linda :o)
You're a good guesser, Linda. Let's have a drink. I know I could use one.
Ok...better invite Dezz....
I don't do booze, Linda, but I never refuse a nice cup of tea or some blueberry juice :)
Count me in.
Don't let them get you downTurn into a smile from a frownLook around you at the world to seeThere is still lots of beautybetty
I'll try, Betty. Thanks for your words of encouragement.
Are idiots in the office after you?Can't you flush them down the loo?Are those internet tough guys out and about?They can go swim with a troutOr is it the red haired buffoon?He is stupider than a sidekick in a cartoonOr just the general nutsWho want all to kiss their butts
All I need right now is a breakAnd maybe a big McShakeMaybe not: click!They might make me sickThough not as sick as kissing buttsMight prefer a few cutsMoney I meanAt my sceneBut now it time to relax a bitAs they are full of it
A few cuts of doughWorks for any show
Politicians can be a real pain! I just read your mental note about staying off of Facebook. How's that going? I don't think I could do that!
It's going great, Sherry.
When someone says "I'm voting for Trump" it's like saying they believe a big melting pot of... xenophobia.
I'd rather vote... for you.
I know how you feel. Politicians have their own agenda, (one in particular) and it has nothing to do with us. Madness springs to mind.I'm rather glad I'm living in New Zealand at the moment. Enough said ...
Every time I try to say, 'politicians'... I need to throw up. These people make me sake. Not all of them. Just the ones I know.
Everyone seems to have their own agenda lately. I've been feeling down this month as well. I have a f*ck it attitude all around. I am usually in the holiday spirit, but now I'm just going through the motions waiting for it all to be over. You, my friend, are not alone.
A f*ck it attitude... I know what that's like. I even need to remind myself that it's almost X-mas. Thank you, Theresa.
at least you people have families, surround yourself with their love and cosy up in your festive homes while you can. Not everybody has that fortune!
So true, Dezzy. That's one way to put things into perspective. It's dealing with all the other asshats that sure puts one in a crummy mood lately.
Amen. Now tell us about those ads, Dezz. You were scared, you said. What's going on?
Politicians have to look out forThey're competing with the contractorThey are both at heaven's doorThe line isn't moving they surmisedA mistake they suddenly got wiseMeant for hell's door they realizedHank
Very mysterious, Blue!
Which part? ;)
Dear Blue,Politics in the workplaceif their ideas you don't embracethey will try to make you falldon't let them rattle those blue balls ;)it's X-Mas time..Try and cheer up Blueinhale, exhale
He is not good in cheering himself up, Truedessa, we must cheer him up, now tell us a joke :)
I am aptly named.
I am not very good at jokesI will leave that for other folksbut, I can offer you a bit of hopein a world of chaos trying to copeCapt'n Grumpy Goo and his crewwent sailing on a sea of bluelooking for that sunken treasurein another land they found pleasurediscovering mutiny, fighting evildistant land in an upheavalout in the distance hung a starlighting the way near and fara crystal shining in the skyI saw an opening, a giant eyeportal of love from the other sidewith the ebb & flow riding the tidecarrying heavy hearts we do weepcast our worries into the deepjust for today let us smilefor it will carry us miles...To Blue from Truesending love to you!!!Now, where did you hide that rum...haha
Thanks, True. That means a lot to me. A portal of love... Is that so at the True Blue show? :))
Sorry you're feeling so down. Smile and turn that frown upside down.
Thanks, Mary. Will do.
Hmm, yes, politics do have the knack of making one feel helpless and quite hopeless...
Especially the ones you know personally.
dough can do a lot of things, buy fast cars and diamond ringsbut it can't straighten out a lie, why do we just let those fly?
Good question, Rosey.
I've just got up with weary head,I really should have stayed in bed,everything just makes me sad,or stressed and even slightly mad.But then I saw your words on here,Ah, a blue compassionate ear,who gets the darkest shades of all,and bangs his head against the wall,just like those of kindred ilk,so sick of taking soured milk,the daily grind, the constant slog,Thank god we have a place to blog.
Amen to that, Jules. You're the best.
No. You're way better ;)
Politics and politicians and make even the calmest of people angry and/or sad. I hope the moment has passed and you're feeling better. If not, take a deep breath and remind yourself just how smart and talented your are - remember your chose not to be one of them. :)
How could I ever forget.... Thanks, Elsie.
Yeah we have our own issues here in Jamaica. I have found our Prime Minister's behavior this year particularly disappointing. Sorry for the bad vibes from the politicians Blue.
Thanks for stopping by again.
I'm writing an educational statement today... Totally in need of help, but of course I'll be done by the time you see it. Pulling my hair out at all the hoops it takes to get back into higher ed. Soon. :) Oh, hello to you too. :)
Tell me more...
All done. Now just waiting for the call to say, 'You're in, you're hired!' Or at least the one that says, 'Come on in for an interview.' ;) Merry Christmas, Blue.
I hope yours was great, too.
Too angry to shout is not good... nor healthy. I won't offer any platitudes, but I will listen and give you a big hug! (((())))
Speak your mind.
