Rondel of Merciless Beauty (Redux)


May 17th marked five years working for the company that I’m at … WOO WOO ME!!!


This here is kind of a strange little re-post, as I think I posted two entries too close together. And, I’ve been a lazy blogger. I have the next three days off, due to my regularly scheduled off days and the holiday. YAY. I’m heading out to the graveyard to visit my grandparents and clean up their stone. That’s all … on with a funny.

Here is a …

Very Short Story

Man driving down road.
Woman driving up same road.
They pass each other.
The woman yells out the window, PIG!
Man yells out window, BITCH!
Man rounds next curve.
Man crashes into a HUGE PIG in middle of road and dies.

Thought For The Day:
If men would just listen.

And that’s all on a personal note today … on with the rest of the stuff.

Do you ever have recurring dreams? If so, are they good dreams or nightmares?

I wrote recently about a dream that I had, it was very sensual and I’d like it to be recurring. *smirks*

Rondel of Merciless Beauty

Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene;
Straight through my heart the wound is quick and keen.

Only your word will heal the injury
To my hurt heart, while yet the wound is clean –
Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene.

Upon my word, I tell you faithfully
Through life and after death you are my queen;
For with my death the whole truth shall be seen.
Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene;
Straight through my heart the wound is quick and keen.

Geoffrey Chaucer
