Introducing the Dialectic Sylloschism Club.

Este se  llama el sepo de la vaca

(Photo credit: falconpr75) You’ll notice that this pic has nothing to do with the subject at foot.

Syllochism: a seductive form of reasoning, consisting of a major promise and a minor trifling one, which ends up getting you sod all. Also leads to a general feeling of confusion on the part of the uninitiated. Favourite pass time of politicians and great thunkers, such as myself, Platato, thunker of messy thoughts.

Dialectic: in the vernacular.

Club: group of lay-abouts with nuthin better to do.

For example:

1.”To stay or not to stay? Methinks I’ll bugger orf!” -> major promise

2. “I’d stay if you arsed me!” -> minor promise

3. Conclusion: the old fart is still here!

Anybody brave enough to join the club? I ‘promise’ not to call your bluff… 😉

Cheryl has been interested in craft from a young age. Her mother, her mother’s aunt, and her mother’s best friend were all Milliners. Her aunt and grandmother were always making things with their hands. Whether it was cooking, knitting, crocheting, sewing or gluing, Cheryl was surrounded by craft.

Over the years, Cheryl has attended many painting workshops with different Folk Artists or Decorative Artists to further her knowledge and diversify her painting and teaching skills. She finds inspiration in her students and nature.

Loosing it…

Peach lobotomy

I’ve a Ph.D. in inefficiency,
achieved without lobotomy!
I’m a Doctor of Dyslexia,
and my brain has anorexia.

My cortex was too short,
but Mum wouldn’t abort!
I have an allergy to pink,
and a disturbing wink.

But my one saving grace
is my ever-smiling face,
cause you can’t lose your cool,
when you’re approached by a fool!

Sex and Aural Energy.


From Gifts from Divine:

Pay attention to whom you share your intimate energy with. Intimacy at this level intertwines your aural energy with the aural energy of the other person. These powerful connections, regardless of how insignificant you think they are, leave spiritual debris, particularly within people who do not practice any type of cleansing, physical, emotional or otherwise. The more you i…nteract intimately with someone, the deeper the connection and the more of their aura is intertwined with yours. Imagine the confused aura of someone who sleeps with multiple people and carries around these multiple energies? What they may not realize is that others can feel that energy which can repel positive energy and attract negative energy into your life.

Replacing the F-Word?

English: Single sleeve of "F**k You!"...

English: Single sleeve of “F**k You!” by Cee Lo Green (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Might not the English language be served well by a selection of phrases to replace the oh so overused “Fuck you!” or “Fuck off!”? I have nothing whatsoever against the act that the verb implies, or rather states so forcefully, but I do not see the need to pepper every sentence with it. Why not try to come up with some utterances that show a trifle more sophistication, a tad more panache, for I for one do so dislike the ordinary. Let us re-educate our sailors, prostitutes and other less savoury individuals, such as lawyers(my apologies to the ladies of the night, btw).

Something along the lines of a friendly:

“I fear you would not have made it out of Gomorrah, my dear chap!” or a gentle

“May the good Lord bless you with a cortex sometime soon!” for the blissfully obtuse.

Should not the “Silence of the Mutton” prevail over the shrieks of blondes? Could you all please help me compile a list of understated phrases for asking people to kindly make themselves scarce? Would the following examples not be more pleasing to the ears?:

“Please step outside and see if I’m there!”

“I’ll get back to you when I can’t!”

“Please come and see me when I’m out!”

“A good listener would have left by now!”

I shall avidly await your linguistic concoctions and fornicatory salutations to you all!

P.S.: More dislocution coming soon…


High School Reunion? – Joke

Morgan Park Academy

From “funny jokes & pics “

I noticed his diploma, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 30-odd years ago. Could he be the same guy that i had a secret crush on, way back then? Upon seeing him, however,Ii quickly discarded any such thought.
This balding, grey-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.. After he examined my teeth,I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park High School. ‘Yes. Yes, I did!’ he gleamed with pride. … ‘When did you graduate?’ I asked. He answered, ‘in 1975. Why do you ask?’ ‘You were in my class!’, I exclaimed. He looked at me closely.
Then, that ugly, OLD, BALD, WRINKLED, FAT ASS, GREY-HAIRED, DECREPIT, SON-OF-A-B!TCH asked me: ‘What did you teach??:)


About Memory and Doors.


From Support For The Elderly:

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?
Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.
Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what’s known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.
Thank goodness for studies like this. It’s not our age, or memory…. it’s that damn door!

Maybe I Should Lay Off the Coffee! – LOL

From I fucking love science

In 1995 a group of NASA scientists repeated and refined some earlier tests on the effect that various drugs have on the web building abilities of the common garden spider. They tested the effect of caffeine, benzedrine, marijuana and chloral hydrate and as you can see the results were pretty extreme!
