Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (3/24)

Open thread Friday. Remember, this is an opportunity for you to post a blog entry, not to tell me what to blog about.

OK. Open thread Friday is not to comment on ME, nor to tell me what to blog about. Pick a topic of interest generally and then write about it.

...Is this thing on?

(tap, tap, tap)


"The Joy of Asparagus"
By Weldon M. Pentworth III


The smiles of the Asparagus fade as they leave the water,
And the lover feels sadness fall as it ends, as he leaves his love.
The scholar, closing his book as the midnight clock strikes, is hollow
and old:
The pilot's relief on landing is no release.
These perfect and private things, walling us in, have imperfect and
public endings--
Water and wind and flight, remembered words and the act of love
Are but interruptions. And the world, like a beast, impatient and
Waits only for those who are dead. No death for you. You are...

Thank you.

P.S. the Empire, Michigan annual Asparagus festival will be held again on May 19th and 20th of this year. For more information on how to submit a poem to the "Ode to Asparagus" contest, visit their website at

P.P.S. Swany, you should do a blog entry about you on the rules of blogging on open threads n' stuff.

People of Earth...Marty does not have interesting things to say there, since the link he posted is broken...

...And I'm not so sure I'd all together vouch for his statement if it had worked correctly anyway.

You were accosted by squirrels? and had to fight with all your strength to travel twelve paces from the sidewalk to a pond as onlookers stared in shock at the frenzied wooly man-beast you had become, before diving into the water to finally free yourself from their furry wrath?

Aren't you overdue for death Mr. Tommy?

Like a Moneyless Magic Johnson.

But hey, on Death's errend list, I'm like the lame toaster your aunt Edna gives you for a christmas gift. Sooner or later it will get taken back to the store, but it doesn't have to be returned today. Death knows I ain't going anywhere.
