so i boarded the cap metro bus- #1 southbound, for what should have taken an hour to get home. first the bus was late bus was once told that the bus is allowed to be 10 minutes late- in this case however, it was 11 min. late…

so i get on the bus is packed!!! both handicapped areas are occupied as well. many had to stand up.

it was rainy so i imagine that is why many are on the bus, that and 5 pm is when many go home from work.

well, then just as we started the journey, a woman who was short on cash to pay for fare, held up the bus by going on about how she had someplace to go and that she was disabled and how she felt the driver was rude to her… he was not rude to her by any means!

after some time exchanging words with woman, her companion paid the rest of her fare so we can actually move. this whole incident took up about 5 minutes.

needless to say, i missed my connecting east to west routed bus, so that meant i got home later than i had anticipated. 😦

  • Austin Cap Metro NEEDS a Flyer that goes north to south and back again from am to pm!
  • South Austin past William Cannon NEEDS more frequent service during peak work commute times
  • Flyer should go from South Congress to William Cannon and Westgate Blvd.
  • light rail to go from south to downtown OR from north to south Austin!

just tired of working people paying price for fact that they share route with undesirables for lack of a better phrase, which frequent many bus routes…

i would pay more to get home quicker via cap metro!

death and writing?

some people need to just die

they need to just go away,

and never come back- any day

but it takes restraint not to kill

and not to turn them into bloated corpses

for an innocent to find…

at least that is what the table behind me would say…

they pretend not to notice me

and i do my best to ignore them

although, there are times in which a nicely placed blade

or a few bullets to the head,

could assure my safety, and secure their deaths.

i wonder if these are the thoughts that every writer of death must have

in order to find peace among the words and their literary goals

who really knows.

No body

Barn2-02-1024x680a bloody corpse found its way home today

he had been missing since the month of May

some kids found it by the tree amid the clearing, behind the barn

immediately they concocted a fabulous yarn:

a bloody corpse found its way home today,

he was last seen at a local pub-

his mood was jovial, and his voice was loud-

some felt him to be too proud…

yet he went on boasting… and toasting…

until the sun came out to yawn,

and the new day broke- a blissful dawn.

*   *   *   *   *

And so the whimsical children danced to the police station

and told the captain of their newest revelation

the captain scurried to the crime scene

and was horrified by what he found

There was No body, no dead man, not even the hint of a devious plan

Puzzled the captain turned to the children to say-

Why have you done this to me today

But the children all smiled and cheered

and said- but the body is you, and you are already dead

Lazy day?

what is it about a day in which you feel under the weather that while making your work week a slight mess, also gives you some form of piece of mind. now mind you i am not speaking of those that have severe illness- just the average under the weather feeling- stuffy head, sore throat- in terms of minor allergy discomfort or slight cold or tiredness…

i am trying to make the most of my day feeling run down. i have made lunch- jambalaya, and am determined to do three WordPress postings! i am also tending to paperwork for my new job which starts next week, for which i am very excited! i have a shorter commute which means everything if you commute via public transit! i also will be paid a little more for what i believe i am worth, work-wise… my old commute was about 2 hours there and 2 hours and 15 min or so back!! lol, yes, i suppose i am a glutton for doing things in a tedious manner?!

hmmm, it would appear that the microwave is summoning me to collect my meal from its mighty belly of microwave power!

more to come…

Ugly people

I was at work today, and it were as if it had turned into that dreaded entity known as- high school…
Now, normally I casually vent about silly work events, but I was bullied by a woman that I once thought of as a work buddy, and possibly a friend.
Shw had been giving me the silent trestment for a few weeks; however, the annoying thing is she would not tell me what I did to upset her, then she gave me the whole- talk to the hand thing, tried to shush me/tell me to shut up- and topped it all off with- I could say something but I won’t.
I couldn’t believe she would behave that way 1- at work  & 2- out on the floor!!
She then whispered stuff to two co-workers… to which I said she should tell me what I did so we can talk about it not whisper to her neighbors.
I have to say for my part, I was calm and did not raise my voice to her. She, just looked and sounded ugly given her demeanor.
Any thoughts…

It has been awhile… been on assignment with one job. It ends soon, so the game is afoot for something more permanent and with more reward.

I guess I committed a sin by deactivating my facebook, because from the way people reacted to my decision, one would think I cheated on my husband and had abandoned my children- I have neither mind you…

So, with that small victory, I am free to kill time by writing, and NOT reading a friend’s political littering, religious badgering, or how someone leads an awesome life & how life is good.

Now I can cheer on others like the dickens, but there are times I would resd my facebook and think- really? Oh come on already! We all get it- YOU lead a better life than I do- and have done better, where I have failed.

Nevertheless, am happy to be rid of the facebook monkey, though it take some getting some figuring out.

my heart exploded inside

when you took that ride.

pieces of you scattered

on an asphalt blanket.

blood and bone

you wouldn’t come home.

i take comfort inside,

you’re a diamond

in the night’s sky.
