This was NOT a Euphemism

Here is an excerpt from my T is for Time closing paragraph.

Me and Mr. Hand, we got it going on.  Lol! 

For all you dirty birdies who asked me, this is not about Fandango’s M is for … post.  The sentence alludes to Fast times at Ridgemont High.  You know, Mr. Hand taught history.  Spicoli was tardy, ordered pizza, and otherwise messed with Mr. Hand’s class time.  Then Mr. Hand goes to Jeff’s house before prom to quiz him.  You wasted my time and now you owe me.

I highly suggest you check out the original, not the cut version all soaped up for TNT.  Oh and check out Fandango’s blog – This, That, and The Other.  He’s got it going on too.

As always, more to come


Sonny rocked back and forth flicking an unlit cigarette between his fingers. He surely was not going to pick up the cancer sticks again after 8 years abstinence. Circumstances had pushed him to the edge. To be here in this place again was surreal. Waiting as the stretch rolled up.

As always, more to come.

I’m Amazed

… by people who speak their truth even when doing so brings the slings and arrows.

Power on soldiers. Keep screaming. One day the world will understand.

T is for Time ~ April 23, 2018

Time is a fickle bitch.  She and I are feuding right now. So what else is new.   

Conscience: Begin again Jilly. You sound so angry.

J-Dub: Okay.  How about this? Time is a construct of man.

Conscience: Better already.

J-Dub: And maybe this? There are only so many hours in the day and trying to get everything done can be overwhelming.

Conscience: Yes for lots of folks.  People pack it all in.  With as much gusto as can be mustered.

J-Dub: And regrets I have a few.

Conscience: Knock it off. Regrets are wasted time.

J-Dub: Maybe but sometimes I get so tired ya know.  Do you?

Conscience: Of course.  I am YOU!

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” ― George Harrison

J-Dub: I always liked the quiet one of the Beatles.  His words ring true.  Yes?

Conscience: Ah, that’s the good stuff!  More in the spirit of what you intended for this post.

When I initially started writing this post, I had this song blasting.

Anthrax – Got The Time

Disclaimer: I have no copyrights to the song and/or video and/or hyperlinks to songs and/or videos and/or gifs above. No copyright infringement intended.

Might be the cause of the initial anger.  Time bomb ticking in my head.  Though the rapid fire pace is definitely a common experience.  Not because that is how things ARE  but because that is how WE make things.

I will say it again:  Time is a construct of man.

“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”
― Lao Tzu

Whew! Deep breath.  Chilling out.  Doing what I want to … on my time.  Me and Mr. Hand, we got it going on.  Lol!  Name that movie cuz you know I had to throw something like that in here.

As always, more to come.
