Yawning Economy, Idle Rich, Book Love

  1. Three things can follow a good yawn.. a nap, coffee, or a long day. I pity that 33% who make the wrong choice.
  2. Idle. Say it ten times fast. Quite the good time there waiting to happen. Give it a try, don't miss out.
  3. When the work of the day is through, find a friendly book.

Banjos Dueling to the Death, Licorice, Old Friends/Fresh Brews

  1. If banjos dueled, would blood be spilled?
  2. Licorice... no ambivalence there.
  3. Afternoon coffee is like meeting an old friend. I feel better, energized, with a good taste in my mouth.

Zip Code at the World's End, Ellipsis Love, Monday Love

  1. When the world ends, what is your preferred zip code?
  2. Love your ellipsis...
  3. I love Mondays. Seven days in a week, and I am thankful for each. Whether filled with coffee, or working out the day solo, all is good.

New Words:Old Songs, Forking Good, Nessie's in My Coffee

  1. Ever just want to sing new words to old songs?
  2. Forks in the road can be rough, but a fork in some chocolate cake? That's a good thing.
  3. Decaf. Loch Ness Monster. Santa Claus. You get the idea.

Charming Art, Bagel Love, Play It Again, Sam

  1. Charm is an unpracticed art. Give it a try.
  2. Bagels. They aren't perfect, but they give it a go.
  3. One more time. Too often a phrase used at the wrong time and not enough at the right time. Timing is everything.

Yesterday's Muse, Nuttin', Equality Not

  1. Too much is said about yesterday.
  2. There's more to nothing that it might seem.
  3. Unequivocally inequivalent.
more of Brockeim's nonsense (since January 2008)

Autumn Sniffing, Mourning the Evil Dead, Human Rights

  1. Autumn smells like childhood.
  2. Someone, somewhere mourns even the most evil among the dead.
  3. Complaining is what people who forget the good in their lives do. Few truly have the right to moan. I'm not hungry, living in fear, unsafe. No complaints.

Flu Bugs, One Trick Ponies, Momentary Exploration

  1. Influenza... influential. Phew.
  2. One trick ponies still have that one trick.
  3. Each new moment is unfamiliar territory. Enjoy the excitement of life.

Bikini on Bikes, Static Impossibility, Wee Mistake

  1. The difference between bikin' and bikini? Very little, on a good day.
  2. Caffeine has its place, but once consumed, staying in that one place is difficult.
  3. Look before you leap... a sign regrettably ignored in a dark restroom in a home with one man and one woman.

Ice Cream Antisocial, Bridge Watering, Ageless

  1. I do not believe in ice cream socials. I prefer ice cream antisocials. More ice cream for me.
  2. Water under the bridge
    makes for good fishing.
  3. Age is for other people.
    I'm other people.

No Direction Home, Addiction, Abandon Espresso

  1. Direction without an agenda is a dream without a plan.
  2. At my best, I am just a quippist (or do you prefer 'quipster'?) who also loves coffee. At my worst... I ran out of coffee.
  3. An espresso cup is deepest when it overflows. Pour with abandon.

Deer Me, Naps as Medicine, Are Your Toasted?

  1. When observing someone fawning, I can only respond, "Oh deer."
  2. Naps. Solves what coffee can't. (Who needs a health care plan when we have coffee and naps?)
  3. Life is toast? Slather it with butter. Toss some cinnamon on for good measure. A little spice can be a good thing.

Yammerin', Toothlessness, Internet Fidos

  1. "I yam what I yam." Popeye was more yams than spinach, yet the Yam Council of America has done so little with this.
  2. The trouble with being toothless is that sometimes, we don't recognize we are.
  3. On the internet, no one knows if you are a dog...
    but, sometimes, the dog goes out of his way to letcha know.

Algae, Verbing Coffee, Gravity's Hot Air

  1. Algae... the other organic food.
  2. What if coffee was a verb? What would we drink?
  3. Gravity asked a balloon what it was like to float.
    All he got was a long-winded reply.
Remembering the children, women and men murdered by Osama bin Laden's radical Muslim group, al Qaeda.

Kopi Luwak, Ad Homina Homina Homina, Potatoes

  1. Kopi Luwak. Funny name for coffee. Even funnier when you learn how it is made. Funnier still when you realize how much they want to charge for it. And somewhere, a civet is getting a great laugh.
  2. Ad homina homina homina
    -Ralph Kramden, had his character been unexpectedly attacked
  3. Mashed potatoes. Underground bread.

9-9-9 (Of Course), Blind Sermons, Krugerrands

  1. 9-9-9. You knew this was coming. It could be worse. It could be June 6, 2006. Visions of John Lennon singing "Revolution #9" are coming on.
  2. Those who reject sermons blindly are akin to those who follow them blindly.
  3. A Krugerrand is not a description of Freddie Kruger's activities, nor implies anything involving a cougar (feline or female).

Beatles' Revolution #9

Reality, New Year's Resolutions, Politics

  1. Does reality ever question itself?
  2. New Year's Resolutions... if you start them today (or restart them), that's better than having quit entirely. You can still lose one pound, smoke one less cigarette, and call your father just to say hi.
  3. Politics are for people who want to talk about change. Change itself requires hard work, often the kind no one sees.

Moony Eye, Toothless Chatter, Unemployed Lunches

  1. If the moon hit my eye (whether as a pie, cake, or even just a small tart), would I still be alive?
  2. The mere facts of having teeth does not mean you can chew.
  3. Labor Day... three cheers for the working man. Four cheers for the man who wishes he was working. If able, buy an unemployed friend lunch this week.

Dignity, Chocolate's Place, Ugly Lives

  1. Dignity is overrated.
  2. Chocolate has its place next to coffee.
  3. Better to live ugly than die looking good.
