It's Another Small Adventure

A lame Friday night
Had two strawberry smoothies
And home before ten.

For celebration
We stopped the education
A week vacation.

Got to get away
A new city to explore
Hope to find some rest.

A family party
I'll be the lone Caucasian
With all the Asians.

Been writing quizes
For Facebook IQ challenge
Try your luck with one.

Take Me To My Beach

This week "The Beach" is the theme over at PhotoFriday. Here is a shot of the area where the "The Beach" was filmed. I was fortunate enough to do some night diving in that bay.


Here Comes The Rain Again

An unwelcome guest
Scheduled to be here Sunday
It's typhoon Nari.

Korean baseball
I've been to many a game
But never seen this.

Hanging with the guys
Playing some Facebook poker
I get paid for this?

We've barely started
Yet vacation in a week
This is the dream job.

Songs for ice cream trucks
What a great album concept
Wish I drove a truck.

Sailin' Ships The Viking Spits

"Fantasy" is the theme of PhotoFriday. Here is a photo from the opening ceremony at Hume Lake this summer. They put on a performance of a Viking attack on a Nordic town, complete with fake rain and pyrotechnics.


Another Stressed Out Week

It has not rained yet
But the clouds are threatening
Wow what a surprise.

Got my next trip planned
Gonna see a past student
And a Disney park.

My last two visits
The barista hooked me up
With free iced Earl Grey.

A busy weekend
Most of the kids are staying
Should be a fun time.

Police were summoned
The emergency that night
Just a burnt pizza.

Blinded By The Light

"Purple" is the theme this week at PhotoFriday. Here is a shot of one of my favorite musicians, Bill Mallonee. This is him perfoming at London's Borderline back in March 2004.

Hasn't Stopped Raining For Days

Friday I linked to the Youth Group song, "Start The Day Tomorrow." When I looked out the window this morning the first lines of that song came to mind:
The summer rain is falling like its never going to stop, it's been ages.
Puddles form on city corners, businessmen they leap between the edges.
Umbrellas take up battle spots but nature's fury always proves much stronger.
I've been sitting in my room wondering if I'm going to last much longer
The forecast tells me that there is at least four more days of rain ahead. I am sick of rain. I am weary of dodging puddles and streams flowing down the street. I'm tired of carrying an umbrella. I want a rainbow to tell me that this too will pass.

In my radio days, I would humor myself and hopefully my listeners by playing rain based songs. So in that spirit, I made an iMix, I like to call, "Rain Rain, Go Away." Give it a click and a listen.

If it does not stop soon, the only joy I could get out of this rain is if it turned purple. Purple rain, purple rain, I only want 2 see u , I only want 2 see u in the purple rain.
