Story of the Fool – Catalogue of Daydreams – Valentina

The fool met the stars by happenstance,

while he strolled without hurry and without a care amidst the laden branches of a July orchard.

“Who are you?” he asked, surprised, looking up even further.

They answered shimmering without a word.

“Oh!” he exclaimed, satisfied.

He pet the dog that had adopted him, and it too wagged it’s tail in gladness.  And so the two, continued walking on.

One half of a phone conversation, Ruby Brunton

Why would you think that?

Why on Earth would I want to buy one of those?

Who told you that?


He’s a bloody liar. You’re pretty thick to trust a word that comes out of his mouth. Thick as two planks you are.

(Loud laughter)

Well I only had one email today that wasn’t pertaining to erectile dysfunction. It stuck out like a sore thumb. I thought about telling him to bloody piss off, but you know, you take what you can get.

I haven’t been anywhere. Well I mean I’ve been everywhere. I travelled here and there. Then I had to work and save and work and save so I could travel some more.

Yeah, he came from over there. He’d been around and around. He took me for a spin I can tell ya. Once I took a ride on that I wasn’t going back.

(More loud laughter)

Nah I can’t tell ya. Come on, I wouldn’t talk about that in the middle of the tram now would I dummy?

Are you crazy? You’re actually certifiable.

(More and more loud laughter)

Aw ain’t you sweet. You’re like a brother to me you know that.  Now I gotta go check my site stats. He said he was gonna take a look stat. I’m just hopin’ he ain’t a love rat.

 c. If you have concern for anyone, 3. if only my brain would function. (Simone)

h. If we don’t go to the pools this week, 8. let it be Whitney Houston. (Jen)

My psyc says
baby
I’m crazy
for you
I don’t know
maybe
I was asking
for it
the way I get when
you’re close
to me
when I think
you’re ignoring me
lord knows
I’ve tried
to get some
help for it
but now
the best I
can hope for
is to ignore it
