You've GOT to ask yourself this.






And you've got to answer truthfully, only to yourself.

Peadar, the only thing I ask myself is why does my friend keep that ugly, disgusting, repulsive photo as the header for his blog? It shows up everyday on my computer screen. I beg of thee... PLEASE change it to something lovelier..... PLEASE!!!

Titus said...

The writing's on the wall...

Must say I can see exactly where Jeanne Iris is coming from - it scared me the first time it opened up!

NanU said...

I agree with J-I. The shock & novelty values have worn off. We're not asking for kittens and rainbows, but please.

Heather said...

I'm with Jeanne, Titus and NanU - some of your photos are so strong and/or beautiful. Not being a 'real' writer, I can't relate to your request, but have often looked at a piece of my textile work and wondered why I made it. I never come up with an answer.

the watercats said...

think the little squiggle next to the statement is the answer...
because we are humans.. and our minds never fucking shut up!

Titus said...

Ooh. I'm asking for kittens and rainbows.

As for the header, I reckon you might be trying to balance all the sweet talking, navy suited,red tied glorified kittens that are our lovely politicians!

To the original question, I don't know why! I've just written a blog post and I'm wondering the very same thing!

Remember the wonderful story
of the Red Balloon ? More photo's than words really- (they made a movie too
I saw it/read it in french first-)
Anyway balancing inner and outer worlds
and expressing one for the other.

The Bug said...

I can't not. Even when I think I'm just done - here come more words. I can't decide if that's a good or a bad thing!

P.S. Is it bad that I didn't even notice the header?

Kat Mortensen said...

Is that a sperm?

Kat Mortensen said...

P.S. I'm with the rest; the Chamber of Horrors must go!

Helen said...

I ask the same question every time I hit 'publish!'

The little balloon is losing air ~ I feel like that some days too.

Niamh B said...

have to agree with Jeanne TFE, having said that my new workplace blocks blogspot anyway, so it doesn't really matter... and it's your call really - long as you know why it's there... do tell us why?! I bet you've a damn good reason.

Karen said...

Okay, all of the women agree! The gory guys have to go!

Good question. I wish I knew the answer.

Enchanted Oak said...

I have missed the header of controversy. Ah, well. At least I can answer why I write "this" whatever the "this" might be: I was born verbal. Can't stop now.
P. S. I don't understand next week's Poetry Bus thing.

synoptixs said...

great blog but i agree with the header pic

Helen said...

... hold the phone, I don't mind the Gory Guys'

The Weaver of Grass said...

Have I missed something??
Why did I write what for goodness sake?

If you mean why do I write my blog then the answer is clear to me - I love the communication with all those cyber friends; I love the effort I have to make every day to find a subject, research it a bit and then write it. Without you all I would be bereft.

Ugly? OOf! DIsgusting? Ouch! Repulsive? Mwaggh!
It's a left right left jib jab combo from The Prof. But no knockout punch!

Totalfeckineejit said...

NanU leaps the ropes with chair aloft, it's a smackdown to the cranium but The EEjit rises groggily to his knees!

Totalfeckineejit said...

FRom the corner Heather knitting needles glinting in the floodlights, knits one pearls one lands one and The EEjit is winded!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Ah NO it's Titus with a double salvo of Rainbows and Kittens, THe EEjit is well and truly on the ropes now!

Totalfeckineejit said...

And NOT NOW KATO!! But it's too late an Ninja flurry of blows to THe EEjit, but he still stands!

Totalfeckineejit said...

And now Niamh with a giant cushion belts a blow to the solar plexus THe EEjit is gasping now, but hangs on!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Karen swings in from the rooftops with a flying kick and catches The EEjit on the top of the head, luckily EEjit has a concrete head and doesn't even blink!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Just when it was getting calm Synoptix makes hay with a giant haymaker and THe EEJit is sent flying through the air, Is he dead? Will he survive? Will he land on his arse?

To be continued!

The Bug said...

LOL - you are a NUT. But I'm kind of fond of the guy on the right - Jimmy Durante, right? Except I'm a political lefty. Now I'm confused!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Gi' me dat old pee-ann-no!
