Ooooh, Child

Ooh-oo, child
Things are gonna get easier...

("Ooh Child," The Five Stairsteps)


This is my first grade school picture. I was an unusually shy little kid. Apparently, I wasn't fond of cameras, either. I'm still pretty shy up close and personal with people I don't know. Thankfully, I don't cry and run away at the sight of a stranger (or a camera) these days.






I don't know how old I was in this one. Third or fourth grade, maybe? At least I don't look petrified of the camera any more.




I kinda sorta have my groove back today, meaning I have some energy. It's going to rain this afternoon, though, which will zap it right back out. That being the case, I should probably strike while the iron is hot and take care of some more of the stuff I've been putting off. And putting off.

For our Twisted Linguistics lesson today, let's play with these.


suposadly - Something done while sad, we presume.

penut - Sounds vaguely obscene.

thiese - Refers to one particular gang of thieves.

buig cavernouse - We define this as WTF, because we have no earthly idea.

Guy wakes up in a socer firled - Guy needs to quit drinking if it makes him so firlish.

bysical - A two-wheeled conveyance from another planet.

despirate - Desperate Pirates, coming to ABC on Sunday nights.

comunist - A pair of -- what? Numismatists?

cerial - Just one incident in a long spree of cereal eating.

had em dong that while ordering a snadwhich - Do WHICH?! Just one more WTF.

harrashment - Smoking hashish and then going online to annoy someone.

typeo's - Something belonging to a Shakespearean character named Typeo.

had already went - Indeed. Keep up that professional writing, dude.

thats nit real - Bona fide louse eggs.

Hang in their - A reference to putting away peoples' clean (as opposed to dirty) laundry. Dirty laundry hung out to dry is a whole other story.

incrediably - Something that is stupendously diabolical.

Aw, shucks, Steve & Kan. Thanks.:)

So far, the Yin & Yang meter seems pretty on-target to me. Except -- I wouldn't describe myself as particularly forgiving, or a Winter lover. Still, I'd rather be cold than hot. And I definitely don't see Roxan as having masculine traits. Creative, though, and active, always in motion -- that's Roxan.

Um, I think Roxan and I need to switch yangs.....I don't have alot of feminine qualities....

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Rex. Why is it that so many little kids look terrified in their school pictures?

I agree, I don't perceive any more feminine traits in you than masculine in Roxan.

Me, I sometimes have more balls than some guys I know, but I still came off as a girlie-girl. Go figure.:)

RexZeitgiest said...

hehe......Just don't get kicked in them....

Serena Joy said...

I'll be careful, Rex. I've heard that kicks like that hurt. A lot.:)

RexZeitgiest said...

You have no idea....no idea.....

Hale McKay said...

Now I see why you are cute now - you always were!

As usual - love those twisted linguistics!

Steve G said...

Serena, today is Mori's birthday. You could stop in and say hi. He doesn't get many visitors. If you know anyone that is bored, perhaps they would stop by also. Smile

Serena Joy said...

Thanks a bunch, Mike.

And Steve, I certainly will stop by and wish Mori a happy birthday. Thanks for letting me know.

Hey there SJ (Sensitive Jezebel~ the beautiful princess not the wanton woman)
Me was "Ying" on Dec.3 and "Yang" on the very next day.
Me likes to think of balance as hopping from one foot to the other while holding dinner plates in yer hands.

P.S. Thanks for the kindness. It's not a matter of finding the message, but hearing it

OMG me just stepped on me tail!!!!!! the princess was not such a good girl. Pardons, pardons, A thousand pardons! quickly strike the comment from the page, but not the sincerity with which it was meant to convey. I am such a dork at times.

Serena Joy said...

Balance is what it's all about. Nobody can be "good" all the time, not if they're still breathing, nor can they be all "bad." I'll bet you anything Jezebel had a good balance, too. There are worse personages to be compared to. LOL. Stick a Band-Aid on your poor boo-boo tail and don't worry about it.:)

I love that first grade picture. You do look terrified, though.

Southern Writer said...

Great pictures! I would be way to embarrassed to post similar pics of myself with the birdsnest hairdos my mom would give me for such occasions. Egads!
