Bloggy Interest With More Dialogue Votes

Bloggy Goodness

I’ve been reading this gal‘s blog for some time. Her blog is called Kill the Goat. You should do yourself a favour and read it. I came across a link to her blog in the comments on Dave‘s. This is what greeted me, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Jay writes for herself. She’s made this perfectly clear. And she really doesn’t give a damn what you think of her writing, as it is all a journey of self (which is as it should be). However, I doubt that there are many that could resist the addictive quality of reading her work.

Go give it a shot!

Incidentally, after I read her blog for the first time, I was tempted to rename mine to Jamie Lite* as a sign of admiration!


Do you rememeber that article I wrote about happiness? Check this out.

A Non-Dave Dialog

Yes, there are some days where I don’t have witty, sparkling conversation with just Dave. There are others, too!

At our dojo, there is a weekly ritual. On Thursday nights, after the 8:45 PM class, we all go out to the local pub. It’s a great way to get to know the people you train with in another setting.

One of the guys (Christian, who recently requested some hilarious haiku topics) was half in the bag one night.

This is what transpired…

Christian: [Nudging Jorge in the arm.] Dude, check out that chick over there!
Jorge: [Lazily looking around, trying to follow Christian’s shaky pointing job.] Where?
Christian: That one. She is so HOT!
Jorge: [Looks over to where he is pointing and sees his own wife Mrs. J, who happens to be looking away from them.] Christian, that’s my wife.
Christian: [Pauses.] Dude, you are SO lucky.

That is one of the best compliments, I think. I’m not sure what Mrs. Hai-Kuul thinks of it though…

** – Not really

It’s such sweet sorrow
Parting with someone you love
In the name of truth

Not quite exotic
More of a home-grown machine
Down south, anyway

Thick, soupy goodness
Tastes like a piece of heaven
Except with more fat

In the best of ways

A great little place
Whose name is forever spoiled
By an explosion

At the rainbow’s end
If you look very closely
You’ll find green-man’s weed

Contracts are scary
It is like giving a piece
Of your soul away

Chestnuts (Requested by Drea)
A meaty flavour
So sweet yet slightly bitter
A great winter treat

The obligation
Of the landlord is to keep
This up in winter
