hey where did we go

days when the rains came

Not ghosties and certainly not goatse: ghoties. Pronounced fishes¹ (but 'goaties' works too.) ... Yes. I know. Moving right along.

I live and work and go to school in Texas. I make tea and read books and walk my dogs. I like to take pictures of old abandoned buildings. I want to live somewhere where it rains all the time.

I'm generally² pretty friendly. My friending policy is that you should add me if you want to. I update sporadically and I'm sometimes horrible about replying to comments, so don't take it personally and don't say you weren't warned. :)

Married To The Sea

Well I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola
la-la-la-la Lola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
Oh my Lola
la-la-la-la Lola
la-la-la-la Lola

¹Bernard Shaw is famous for his plays, but spelling reform was his real passion and he loved poking fun at the apparently odd mismatch of spellings and sounds in English. Can you guess what this word is? g-h-o-t-i

It's pronounced 'fish'!

f = gh, as in 'cough'
i = o, as in 'women'
sh = ti, as in 'function'
