I’ve been creeped out by this photo since the day it was taken

because none of the people I’ve shown this to

can figure out where the horn came from

& everything that was behind me at the time

didn’t seem to be able to make this type of apparition.

As you can plainly see,

there really does seem to be something that resembles a devil’s horn

growing out of the side of my head…

I slightly modified my glowing red eyes by adding a few dots of white 

using the Paint application provided by Microsoft

in order to “soften” my appearance a little with hopes of preventing a big fright amongst the young-uns 😉


All I can say is that an enemy of mine,

someone who didn’t take too kindly to me right off the bat 

(to put it mildly)

took this photo of me.


Hence my motto from that day forward:




*Don’t say I didn’t warn you!


Over Glorified Meat

22 Mar

Face it, people! We all suck in every single aspect of the word. That is one sure thing we all have in common with each other, other than being a suck when we’re moaning & groaning while complaining about silly things when we think that we’re not getting our rightful share and that life sucks in general. 

We all begin by sucking our thumbs straight-up (most of us, anyway) while we’re in our mothers’ wombs, and if it wasn’t for the medicinal & enriching qualities of the birth-milk we need to sustain ourselves, most of us would not have the advantage in getting a better head-start in life. Many people are taken off the nipple too soon, and it is my belief that this encourages thumb-sucking practices later on in life & well beyond the toddler years.

Most of us love to dine on choice cuts of meat that are also the product of farm animals that have been weaned & have only been nourished by nursing on mother’s milk alone, “before” they even get a chance to eat any other type of fodder. In this case, I see it as the sucks dining on the sucks.

I get a real kick out of the name we give to meat that comes from a cow that has also not had a chance to nibble at the finer spread of turf mother nature has provided when we label it as “glorified steak”. Who, might I ask here, is the one who is really in their glory, in this case when a breast-feeding life is at stake at the expense of a few tender little morsels to satisfy someone’s palate – all wrapped up in fancy-schmancy pink paper & stamped with a label that draws big crowds & big bucks, without a second thought about it, as we often do with other big-ticket items available to us. And just think, it all goes through the same process as other things we consume, and straight down, into the old hole in the ground.

and some cat nip, of course!
  …and some cat-nip, of course! Now I also understand the reason why Irish folk love to dance the jig, because their famous Irish Dexter cow is weaning young-uns who often weigh in over 200 lbs more than their own mother after nursing from her milk for only a matter of a few months! Not only do the spoiled-rotten children of the world love to dine on suckling pig & the whitest veal in the spread, they choose other foods to take their sucking fantasies out on, like slippery spaghetti, sweet ‘n’ sour gummy worms, & creamy, dripping ice-cream cones, to name a few.

 Getting saucy, are we?  Getting saucy, are we?


My friend & I were recently killing ourselves laughing (meaning, there were never-ending tears streaming down from our faces) over a few simple little words: TITS IN MY HAIR, that we kept repeating all weekend like a rap-artist would in one of their zany songs, because when you really think about it, this is what life really boils down to, doesn’t it?

So the next time one of your kids, your hubby or someone else you might know is getting on your case & acting like a suck about things when they should just be sucking it up & forgetting about it altogether, you can start dancing around in front of them like a lunatic and belt out at the top of your lungs, over & over & over again, and as many times as you like & you feel is necessary in eliminating the blues, TITS IN MY HAY-AIRRRRRRRRRRRRR!  If that doesn’t do the trick, you can always resort to singing that Prözzak song,  SUCKS TO BE YOU.

This is another way you can pacify a suck if all else fails This is another way you can pacify a suck


With that said, I shall bid you adieu, sucks!

& fogataboutit! (an artistic endeavour of mine)

Telling Signs When A Man Is In Love With You

19 Mar

As women we know that sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether a man is in love with us. Some men just aren’t as forthcoming about their feelings as others. There are some definite signs that a man is in love and once you understand what they are, it’s much easier to gauge how a man is feeling about you.

One of the most obvious signs that a man is in love with you is that he tells you – over and over. Men who are crazy about a woman want to openly express it. For many men, saying those special words doesn’t come easily. Another thing to watch for that suggests that a man has deep feelings is that he wants to make your life better. He’ll ask what he can do to help you in any way, and he’ll do whatever he can to ensure your life is full and happy.

If you hear from him often when you aren’t together that’s a sign that a man is in love with you. Men want to be close to the women they adore and they will often call or email if you two are apart. This applies to when you are in separate cities, but also if you live just a few minutes apart. If he texts you while you are at work, or emails you just to say hi, he has strong feelings for you.

Men who never ask about your life tend to not feel that deeply for you. If a man is in love with you he’ll have a genuine concern for the things you are experiencing. He’ll ask about mundane everyday things and also will be emotionally invested in your life. If a man is willing to drop everything to listen to your problems or help you with something, he has strong feelings for you.

When a man is head over heels for a woman he’ll go out of his way to do things to surprise her. It might be something as simple as bringing her a fresh bouquet of flowers or cooking her dinner. He takes note of the things she enjoys and uses that information to create unique surprises for her. Another of the often overlooked signs that a man is in love with you is that he’ll share his own feelings with you. He’ll talk about his fears and the things that make him happy. A man who isn’t in love may be afraid to be emotionally vulnerable. When a man loves you, he’ll open up to you.

Nothing feels quite as wonderful as knowing you are loved by a man. Even if he doesn’t always verbally express it, recognizing the signs of his devotion can offer you all the reassurance you need.

Specific things you say and do can make a man feel helplessly drawn to you. If you are convinced he is the one there are things you can do to ensure he only has eyes for you.

You don’t have to leave love to fate or chance. If you are tired of waiting for him to fall hopelessly in love, there are things you can do to make it happen now. Find out right now what you need to do to capture his heart forever.

If you’ve ever studied the habits of birds, they are very determined in making their nest sacred to only themselves, their immediate families & their mates. By this, I mean their grounds do not really welcome passers-by. A lot of birds mate for life, and that is why I’m a “lifer” – because I am committed & determined to holding fast to my beliefs and what is most important to me as well as protect & help instill these upon not only the aggravating & pesky starlings of the world but also upon my loved ones in order to help us all to fluorish (rather than wither away without any hope at all) in the environment we have found ourselves having to function, rest & play in.

This is the reason why I am quite leery at this moment in time, because I have been sensing that there are intruders invading my grounds, as in shady real-estate birds (both male & female) who seem to feel they need to brake every once in a while by thinking to themselves, HEY! WHY NOT TAKE A BREAK & FOLLOW EDITH AROUND… from what I see in my ever-growing number of fans I have been accumulating in the Windows Live Spaces domain in the past few months, and if you ask me, it’s really getting kinda annoying for me around here & now that I think twice, I should never have posted in my education section that part of it entailed Real Estate, but that was in the 80s when I decided just to take a few courses in order to learn more about the field I decided to be employed in as a clerk & a secretary, & mostly, as a speed data-entry operator, but never a real-estate agent or broker of any type.

If you glance at my Messenger contacts, I’m sure you’d recognize a few real estate names, yet they have never told me they were involved in it. I recognize them, though, & have been pretending that I don’t just to see what exactly it is that these individuals want from me, because they never talk to me or post notes even though it was they who asked to join my circle of friends to begin with. 

I feel it is an invasion of privacy as to why they want to hang there all day just staring at me & following my movements. What do you think I should do about that? Like the expression goes, if you can’t beat ’em then join ’em? NOPE! Fo[e]gataboutit (as in, STOP treating me like a sitting duck while I am relaxing on perma-vacation, by trying to mimic alligators & eat me alive), boys! Go back home to your mamas before you trip over your tails in my hood. That means there are too many people in real estate right now who do not have willpower to actually make a living but use it as a disguise to f*ck the dog, so to speak.

I have a fave song that is most fitting for today & it reminds me so much of what I’ve been hearing & seeing around me lately: (I Saw) The Sign ~ Ace of Base. Hah! Real estate agents in diapers – what a lark; little do they know I am almost 50 years of age & have worked since the age of 16 in real estate fields, mainly.

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to voice my frustrations today, in my own domains, of course (and don’t you ever forget it, people).

Now that I have amalgated & edited my original 3 notes here (that I originally posted on one of my best friends’ domains – the very same friend of mine who borrowed my real estate textbooks back in the 80s in order to further her career), several of the wet-behind-the-ears young-uns I suspect have been tailing me recently took off in a flash – both on Windows Live Messenger & also around the front of my home. Go figure! 😉 

To conclude what I’m getting at here, try going out & making some bread first before you try & feed it to the birds; GO-GETTERS are the real pros, and the only real ones to be found, in my opinion, are the ones who get up each & every day, no questions asked, and give it the almighty best they have to give with a smile on their face (that shows honesty, not a sneer that conceals nothing but greed) while going for the gusto & expressing a deep enthusiasm and commitment to their trade. Any others who pass themselves off as such are phonies & fakes.
