This Is About.

It's a digital age, man. So to you we present our virtual talk show of Nonsense: The Silly. The Beautiful. The True. In our own words or those quoted by others. With our own art or that created by others. We will laugh. We will smile. We will entertain you all the while. So grab a drink, come in and let's chat. We'd like to meet you, your mama, and your hot cousin Fred.


Build Your Dreams.

Lately we have been pondering upon the future. And because of this, we have composed a list of some terrific futuristic opportunistic ideas we would to impress upon in our daily life and house on a hill that we shall build. For the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams, according to our old girl, E. Roosevelt.

1) A Confectionery/Patisserie on the first floor of our house on the hill. So we can enjoy the Lady in the Black Shirt's famous chocolate lava molten cake and perfectly perfected strawberry shortcake. Daily. And we will drink chocolate hot or cold, out of little yellow teacups. And surround the shop with orchids and lilies and lots of hydrangeas. Which will of course be edible, if you should choose to eat so.
2) Oodles of Poodles. So that when people ask 'Where do you live?' We can say back to them 'On the house on the hill, with the oodles of poodles.' And they'll know exactly what we mean by that.
3) Strawberry Noodles. For every Thursday night's spaghetti dinners and leftover lunches before the Friday Night Fish Fry.
4) A Dumbwaiter. We first became enchanted with the idea of a dumbwaiter during our Harriet the Spy days. However, we like to think we wouldn't have been caught by Mrs. Plumber! And would have managed to find out about the bachelor's cats, the lazy son of the immigrants, and the indolent woman confined to her bed for life in a perfectly quiet and sneaky way, while spying through the dumbwaiter. Plus, we would then also have the option of hollering down the dumbwaiter 'Lady in the Black Shirt, be a dear and send up a magic cupcake with goblet of pink champy please? It's teatime, love.'

If I was one of HA larious poodles:

I would be the one everyone forgot about, but at the same time one they all loved to remember!

That was my attempt at a poetic way of saying the cutest most fabulous poodle that just happenes to be hiding under the chair (probably being naughty under there!)
