About Me

!nversed Poignancy!

...I am an eclectic amalgamation of many seemingly paradoxical things. This can be exemplified in both my seemingly endless persistance on many topics and arguments, as well as my careful cautiousness on other topics and arguments. This is largely due to how astute I am of the topic: more knowledge, more persistant; less knowledge, obviously more cautious. I also have times of obsessive compulsions regarding certain things (mostly just my thoughts, however)...

Life and Death

!nversed Poignancy!

Life

An assembly

Possibly impossible

Perfectly interchangeable..

Death

That lives most upright

Beyond the unspoken

Neither a squiggle nor a quibble..

She and Me

!nversed Poignancy!

She

A daffodil

Tyrannizer of me

Breaking the colors of dusk!..

Me

The rising sun

Infringed with violations

The impurity in the salt..

Love and Poetry!

!nversed Poignancy!

Love

A puerile desire

Buried in the heart

Never leaves..

Poetry

Sentimentally melodramatic

Cursively recursive

My thoughts idiotic!

Read Red Book

I read long into the night,
fervently underlining significant
passages in the little red book.

"So," the counselor began. "You think your marriage is over."

She sighed. "He's just not the man I married. He used to be so romantic. Always bringing me flowers. Opening the car door. Giving me the most wonderful massages!"

She shook off the memory.

"Now he spends all his time with his friends, drinking beer, talking football. When he is home, he sits in front of the TV and expects to be waited on hand and foot. It's like I'm some sort of fixture!

"I just don't understand what happened," she finished, burying her head in her hands.

After a brief silence, the counselor asked, "Have you told your husband how you feel?"

"What's the point?" she responded without looking up. "People can't change the way they are."

What can i?

It is only a simple trial
what do I really care
I have no fear

Guilty not guilty
I am an innocent man
in a controlled land

The jury is set
the answer will come
I have to be strong
in my heart

Here they come
I hope they understand
that I have done no wrong
against anyone

Ha Ha all raise
now it is time to pay
this is your judgement day

Here it comes
you are sentenced to Death
because you have shown no regret
so say we all

Tomorrow at sun rise
you will swing from the old oak tree
up at Gallows point

Guilty not guilty
I am an innocent man
but they turned me down
completely

Tonight there will come some tears
but they will never be seen
because they are inside
guilty I was
at least so they said
but I am not afraid

I know..

I know what you are thinking
but not what you are drinking
come on over here
and we can share

I can not move
but I can feel the groove
shy shy that is what I am

I know what you want
but not how to give it
come on baby give me a shot
you can see that I have a lot

I can not speak
but I know how to teach
shy shy that is what I am

I know what you need
but not how to show it
come on baby give me your hand
and I will make you understand

I can not play
but I know the game
shy shy that is what I am

I know that you are lonely
but not how to explain it properly
come on baby open up and smile
and I will give you my best company
even if I am a little bit shy

I know that you need me
but not how to give you my heart
in a way that makes you understand
that I will never let you down
please take the first step
because I am a little bit shy
but I will never make you sad
or cry

Never know when to end a word in o, os, or oes?

Goodness gracious me! I am sure that there must be a secret school for greengrocers and fruit and veg employees ... where they are taught a difficult and secret way to use apostrophes at the end of vegetables. It is a miracle if I ever see a sign outside a greengrocer which *doesn't* have an apostrophe where it isn't needed!

[Feel free to send photos of offending signs to share with us!]

Words ending in O do NOT - I repeat - do NOT need an apostrophe *s* to make it plural!!!

When a singular word ends with a consonant (non-vowels) and o,
it is normal to add es to form a plural:

Singular


Plural

potato
tomato
volcano
mosquito
hero
cargo

potatoes
tomatoes
volcanoes
mosquitoes
heroes
cargoes


Exceptions - no *e* before *s*

photo
piano
solo
silo
merino
dynamo

photos
pianos
solos
silos
merinos
dynamos

When a singular word ends with yo or io, add an s:

ratio
studio
radio
embryo
folio
curio

ratios
studios
radios
embryos
folios
curios

What does it all mean??!

A noun is a naming word or an object (e.g. shoe, house, computer, employee).

Examples:

one potato
two potatoes
two potato's is WRONG

one tomato
three tomatoes
three tomato's is WRONG

one piano
two pianos
two piano's or pianoes is WRONG

one studio
five studios
five studio's is WRONG

Unless you have a school teacher who is correcting your work, you probably have no-one who proofreads for you, who can spot the errors ... and yet it is so important. As working adults, many of us are required to do a fair amount of writing for our jobs, no matter which field we are in, so taking the time to learn grammar, apostrophes, punctuation, parts of speech and commonly misspelt words, will be a skill we can build on and improve with practice. Good luck!
