Crazy

:: Bottles ::



:: Bottles ::

In my younger days, I slept beside a glass cabinet.
Beside a tall glass cabinet, in the living room.
I would admire my father's collection of miniature bottles.
Of gin, and vodka, and a few more, brandy and whisky.
And then, one night, I unscrewed a bottle.
I downed it all, and felt satisfied.
With all the macho-bullshit.
For a while, anyway.
I then carefully filled the bottle with tap water.
I would screw the cap back tightly.
I would then put it back in the exact position.
Back with the collection.
It was not long before the tap water collection became complete.
No one realised.
Not even father.
Until a decade and a little bit more.
At a family brunch.
When brother Bren, shared with me his discovery
While missing the wry smile at the corneer at my face.

:: Livejournal Housekeeping ::



I am doing the regular livejournal housekeeping to purge
Ljers who have not posted for 52 weeks or more.
Having used LJ for about seven years, I have come to realise
That I have been missing certain friends' significant entries.
For some strange reason, the LJ engine removes certain friends' entries
When there is overloading of inactive friends.

There is a certain nostalgia in this little act of housekeeping.
There are those who have passed on, moved on, and
Those that literally vanished, from their online (and possibly social) existence.
Guess for those who started lj with the intent to blog, they will continue to do so
While others will move on with other emerging trends.

For those who start to post again, please keep me notified.
And for some reason, if we know each other yet I'm not subscribing to your blog,
Please kindly tell me me so.
