It’s getting embarrassing. Landed on my stats page – there are so many views of my ‘about’ section my heart beats a little faster. Mainly due to embarrassment. I don’t like to show myself up for the bubble I am NOT. Never mind. It’ll keep for another day when I have time to think ‘about’ who I am. I suppose I could always sell myself as candy. Not eye candy, after all none of you can see me, but sugar. Tell me what flavour your favourite and I’ll add some E number.

To bore you and add to my amusement: I sometimes fall in love with a word. Words being easy to love. They don’t give a toss. This minute it’s “tedious”. Which I just found myself saying out loud on reading a long drawn out recipe for Vietnamese rolls. Yes, I bet you wish you’d come across a recipe for Vietnamese rolls at 0413 British Summer Time. Still, it makes a tasty diversion from that most unfortunate saga playing out on the world’s stage and which has me in its grip.

Have slightly unnerving tendency to use words by sound. Forget their real meaning. Sound will do fine. Misunderstandings rife. Which is good. I bet a lot of old married couples (as drawn to my attention by the Angel) would still be talking to each other over dinner if only they’d misunderstand each other a lot more.

FOS, father of son, early on,  gave me a small volume (English) with the following inscription: “If you understand this book, then we should be able to misunderstand each other for a long time.” We did. Now, seventeen years into our divorce we have, or rather he has, reached a nadir in our communication. Maybe I now understand SO well he doesn’t feel the need to communicate any longer. Pity. You can have a lot of fun with people you don’t climb into bed with.

Where were we? Tedious. Then, of course, there is tenacious. I love the sound, I love its implications. Never ever ever ever give up. On anything or anyone. Just go and drown yourself.

  1. Before I start waffling I will just say that I like the FUN too you know, and I also like your expression on the out of bed fun as it adds a hint of wickedness I think. Now I am going to say it so sit back and no butting in, regarding your candy mention, I beg to differ, as from your Gravatar I know different but don’t you worry I am not hitting on you, oh no I know better than that, but still eye candy could easily match your picture so there you have it from Goth, Andro is better but Goth is good enough for me, oh and while you are busy thinking of what to say next I wouldn’t mind sampling some, nooooooooo I mean sampling some of your Vietnamese rolls, I always enjoy a good roll (;)) oop’s sorry about that.

    Have a lovely day today BOTB or else?

    • “Not hitting on” me? Pity. Someone does have to.

      As to the roll: Knowing my luck we’d land right on that elusive needle in the haystack.

  2. You can of course be tenaciously tedious.

  4. Mention of the word “tedious” done gone and got me a reminiscin’. I have not thought of this formany years but my late (very late) father would sometimes sigh and say “Life get teejus don’t it?.”
    I decided to lookit up using a popular search engine (there are several available) and discovered that it is the title of a song from 1948.
    Sun comes up and the sun goes down.
    The hands on the clock keep goin’ around.
    I just get up an’ it’s time to lay down.
    Life gets teejus, don’t it?

    As for tenacious…… being thus, or possessed of tenaciousness (it is a real word), can lead one into trouble… as youngest offspring is finding out.

    • Thanks for the link. Comp currently mute. No sound. I am fond of ‘tenacious’. Dog with a bone. Or some such. Does it lead to trouble? Yes, and no. Mostly, I’d say, it leads OUT of trouble, other times you will get a very harsh lesson as to when to know to let go.

  5. Being tenacious can sometimes get tedious when tentacles get tiresome.
