A Natural Human Disaster
You are the pin that pops pretty balloons
You are the fist that takes the wind right out of my sails
You are a thief
You are the friend that no-body wants, the friend who whispers in your ear that things are really that bad
You burgle houses in the worst and most destructive way going
Your middle name is Twister
I don’t like you and I tell you this whenever I find you in my home, but still you keep coming.
You are everything in the field of viruses and disease
You eat away at the flesh of the internal Read the rest of this entry
Shorts - Jack Noooooooo
2012 Writing challenge 1 from my Boss/Pimp
The rules are, each short must be 50 words or less; and each must tell a story with a point. My first one turned into a mini drama well before print and I can’t find the bugger! So I’m starting slightly late in the year; with this ‘new’ 1st attempt!
These will eventually be found ‘all in order’ for your convenience, on my page entitled ‘Dawny’s Mini seriessss, Writing Challenges from my Boss/Pimp and Sideline Squit’.
If you would like to join in the ‘Shorts challenge’ please doooo lead me to your snippets. 50 words certainly gets the imaginative juices flowing! (see novembrepleut.wordpress.com for some gems…)
Here be my first ‘shot at a short’…

Timing is everything…
Yet in many ways, time is a fallacy, it is a man-made concept. Greenwich mean
time, morning, noon, night, today, tomorrow, next year. We made them all up!
Before clocks, wasn’t life just… ‘Being’?
And is it time that has made, just ‘being’ so hard?
Yet in all its literal nothingness, it is everything
As people, living through ‘time’
We change as sure as a ticking clock ticks
Even those people who have no insight into their insides
The people who form their opinions in their 20’s and never waver from them
The people who never pick up a book, and the people who never listen to anyone unless they agree with them,
Even these people + time (a man made concept) = change Read the rest of this entry
They say life is one big circle of destruction and creation, a looping mass of ‘making and breaking’ on a continual rolling cycle.
Let me provide a life example of this phenomena in action, from tonight –
I’m feeling rather creative at the moment, so I decided to download a trial of ‘Mix Pad’, with the idea of recording one of my songs, and then recording a 2nd track of me harmonising over the top.
Well I began by recording me playing the Ukulele and singing on track 1
Harmonies came on track 2
Then I decided it sounded poo, so I hopped online to see if I could quickly find some free drum tracks and failed miserably, HOWEVER, I then realised I could re-create the sound of the bass drum and a cymbal by…wait for it…beat-boxing! God bless the 90’s children! And along came drums… Read the rest of this entry
Ignorance is bliss but…
Ignorance is subjective
Ignorance is dangerous
Intellect is a blessing
Intellect is profound sadness
Intellect is a vehicle
Naivety is peace
Naivety is lacking
Naivety is vulnerable

The final part to my seven-ogy!
And then I will get on with my allocated writing tasks from my boss/pimp (I’m 6 weeks late), which is nothing new for me!
Here’s the finaleee, it’s pretty crap really which is a shame as it’s a series finisher, I should have thought out this ‘natural order thing’ more thoroughly…
Anyway I shall begin…
Reading about procrastination this evening, has got me thinking about impulsivity. Apparently the two go hand in hand, and impulsivity prevents us from doing what we need/want to do. (I get this, totally; and as I type bilge instead of doing LIFE, and I am the epitome of an impulsive procrastinator, BUT…)
I’ve just had a quick flick through my thinking/action processes, to assess which decisions I’ve made impulsively and which were rational, and this is where I came unstuck
Impulsivity is a mofo for making me procrastinate
BUT Impulsivity is also the ONLY thing that stops me procrastinating and starts me moving Read the rest of this entry
Of all the people to re-ignite my long-winded fire…
David Pooey Cameron
- Come again Cammy Boy? FAIR???
In reference to capping benefits at X amount of £’s, because there are people at home doing NOTHING (The lady being interviewed would be one of those affected by the new cap and the child benefit reforms, and she is mid way through doing the ‘nothingness’ it takes to rear 5 children; all the things she does to ensure their lives are safe! everyday). Defining this ‘life work’ as NOTHING is perhaps a more fundamental problem for ‘child benefit AND housing benefit’; than the problem of which family to rob first.
It seems Slavery (for parents this era) is back on the ‘forward thinking’ agenda!
He ‘toffed out’ his disgust that a person at home, should never ever be getting the equivalent of a £35k salary, after tax!
Which equates to around £28,000
Which is a lot of money!
(Like Parents, Surgeons are responsible for the safety of multiple humans every day, and I think they get a little more than 35k a year)
Single people who are unemployed people do not get £28,000!
Single people get about £57 a week to live, and pay all bills bar rent.
NOTE the significance of rent in his plans… Read the rest of this entry
They say ‘True Love’ lasts a lifetime, and I know this not to be true, per se.
Some ‘true loves’ last for a period of our lifetime; and maybe these could still be defined loosely as a lifetime; because as we come to the end of them, sometimes we’ve changed so much, and the love has turned into something else, something lesser. This kind of ending can close a whole lifetime’s worth of chapters. And in moving on, it kind of feels like you are indeed, starting out again. Back in Nappies and crying for a dummy, some calpol and warm miiilllllk!
So maybe there are ‘true loves’ that last a (mini/maxi/period/chapter) lifetime, maybe they do count too, or maybe not…
But some ‘true loves’, well I think they must last a whole lifetime…22 years is a long time thus far. Read the rest of this entry

I am a moral sewer rat after all!
If I was ever going to be seduced into marrying anyone, for anything other than love, I’ve just realised I’d have an answer!
I’m ashamed to say my price is ‘The Lion Man’!
Hanging around with him all day just blows all my previous beliefs about my being for sale, firmly outta the water!
If you don’t know who he is, he is Channel 5’s only redeeming feature (except for The European Blue Review from back in the day) Read the rest of this entry

(Quick Insert – Don’t ask me where the ‘ones’ popped from, I haven’t turned posh! ;))
The 5 positions available will be filled by the 5 graduates who are insane enough to believe their skills make them the perfect superior choice for the job.
Whilst the 946 other perfect and superior graduates who were blown out, we’re simply all too aware of the tendency to fail, simply due to odds. They are sane enough to spot the bottle neck before their breathing restricts. Read the rest of this entry

Writing this actually proper hurt my brain. I had to think so hard to get this bloody lot out! I can’t bear scrolling down it one more time, so here it comes…
The deeply embedded idea that both science and medicine provide us with solid facts about disease and the physical world, is BULL CRAP!
When push comes to shove, for every truth you buy into, someone else will have been busy dis-believing it and proving it too. Evidence has officially never been so useless…
Or sought after
And we are told to believe experts! Well if they can’t make their bleeding minds up about what causes the a) and what thing solves the b) and where oh where c) really did come from. Why would we believe any of them?
Knowledge is learning everything about something; and knowing that nothing you’re learning is fact, more an insight into someone else’s surety around one ambiguous idea/topic. Read the rest of this entry

Mr Rurch and Mr Shamoneee – The Destroyers…
I have committed myself to loving my two little brother cats (lights of my life); through the deep highs and lows that inevitably come with feline ownership 😉
I feed them everyday, they never ever feed me,
They ‘wipe out’ both small and large expensive items such as cookers (I kid you not), on roughly a weekly basis,
Shamoneeeee has a problem with cling-ons, which needs no more description!!
They ignore me when-ever they want to, Read the rest of this entry

In the grand scale of the age of the universe, electricity is a pretty new thing. As I have just scrabbled around for a free plug socket to charge the lap-a-topa; searching amongst the extension leads, plugged into the extension lead, plugged into the double adapter, plugged into the wall!!!
(Meandering thought, no wonder I go through electrical items like a mo-fo, I think my Dad once told me you weren’t meant to join that many up :/)
Anyhoo, back to the point in hand!
I thought ‘Jesusin Ka Ryst’, I am not a gadget person particularly. I don’t have surround sound and special dvd writers and all that spangly stuff; Read the rest of this entry

A glass of repetition with some ice please,
A coolant for the burning in my chest,
How many different ways can I say the same thing,
I speak my words, I can’t fathom how you function,
I am sickened by your reactions,
Pained and broken by your words, but mostly, from exposure to your thoughts,
I see inside you when you speak at peak, and the truth has rocked my world,
All I asked was be there in the rough times,
You played it really well when they were bumpy but well peppered with divine,
Your soul is well intended but you are blind,
Now I see the you behind the mask.. A mask I knew existed some time ago,
I waited and prepared for the viewing but…

More jolly i’m afraid; from current Mrs Jolly Pants (Moi)…
There is an illness out there called ‘Borderline Personality Disorder’ (borderline refers to being on the border of neurosis and psychosis) and the very route of addressing the problems that come with this disorder can only START; AFTER this universally shared trait of the illness is dealt with…
People with BPD; when they feel in danger… with no awareness whatsoever that they are doing it…automatically think the worst first; believe it as truth; and roll with the emotions that ‘the worst’ produces.
An example on a small teeny tiny scale is…I send a text to someone (who I fear may be placing my love for them in danger) and they don’t reply for three hours. My FIRST AUTOMATIC assumption for their silence is either, they hate me, they are dead, they are busy slagging me off, they read my text and thought ‘oh do one you dramatic wench, you irritate me’ etc etc
Now, when you go to therapy, they first tell you that although these assumptions are possible and sometimes correct in life, it is just as possible that they may have had no battery, they fell asleep, they read it when they looked at their phone and text you straight back…
Then you nod and think Bollox 😉 Read the rest of this entry

This is your heart here and this correspondance should be digested urgently and then acted upon immediately. You have stitched me right up!! Get a grip! What in gods name have you done? This pain we’re in, well forgive my bluntness but it is entirely your fault! You TWAT!. I repeat…WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?…Well MIND, I am putting my bloody foot down this time. I’m ordering you to have a word with your mouth, open it, and un-say the words. Do what needs to be done to re-attach me to my left valve. You replaced our original left valve with another one, I went through all that trauma that comes with re-adjusting to an alien body. I readjusted… and now you’ve cut me from the bloody source. I’m working overtime with no chance of a replacement lefty; and I’ve been in alot of pain lately as it is. My ability to regulate us is now seriously compromised. This is dangerous and WE are in agony you masochistic freak! Re boot re boot..over and ooooooooooooooot!
I have recieved your hostile little memo and to be honest, you’re very self absorbed. Read the rest of this entry

Where do I start
What do you do when someone you love has done things to you that have rendered you incapable of trusting them, but you know they have done these things without any malice or awareness, let alone intent?
What do you do when you know they are a wonderful person, but also not the person you thought they were?
What do you do when someone has broken your heart over and over and over, but you know they did none of it intentionally?
What do you do when they can’t see why they have broken you?
What do you do when someone has lied to you, sometimes to protect you and sometimes not, but lied often enough, that you wanna believe their words of grandeur, but you can’t even believe their tiny words anymore? Read the rest of this entry
Cover of The Other Half
So much advice
Be vulnerable, be scared, have pieces missing from your puzzle,
Pieces that those who love you can fill with their own funny shaped cardboard sections,
Be weaker, be softer, forgive more, learn to bend
So she did,
Currently she is half naked, with only some of her limbs intact and even less of her heart and soul,
She is so soft that now when she tries to walk without your cardboard, she just falls over. Read the rest of this entry

If you believe everything happens for a reason, you can always find a diamond in the manure.
If you believe there is a lesson to be learnt from every experience, you become wiser after both good and bad times.
If you believe that literally anything is possible; then sense, logic and reason can be found in almost all actions and happenings.
If you believe in even the POSSIBILITY of enlightenment as a reality, you have access to one of lifes routes to understanding… ‘IT ALL’.
If you believe everything happens cos life is life, there are no diamonds in manure, there are only diamonds in diamonds. Read the rest of this entry

Fate takes us on paths in order to teach us lessons, we move forwards on these paths and lanes when and if we grow, and we move sideways if we make changes that ‘shrink’ us.
Nothing shifts you sideways quite like the path we ALL walk on in order to understand the relationship between hurt, wrongs, pain and revenge.
Some label this path life’s toughest. Nothing proves more testing to the psyche than constantly marching in the wrong direction inspite of your best efforts to aim the self. The old you is dying but immortal, so you are duty bound to lug her/him around with you…just you and your poisonous, small minded bigoted twin, chucked over your newly formed unchipped (but smothered) shoulder. Moving nowhere but sideways, and slowly to boot…
