    In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines…

    The trains run like snakes through the Pentecostal pines….

    My heart goes back, suffocating on the pines in Jacksonville

    I love colorful clothes – scarves, hats, embroidered blouses – they make me feel so festive. Sequins are always good for a party, too.

    To type the accent-aigu above the second e in entrée, hold down the option button and type the e, then type the e again.

  • All the sun glasses I’ve lost and broken, or held on to until they went out of style – they could shield a third world country from UV rays.

  • The demonstration took on a life of it’s own and now there is a law against it.

    Swing with your friends. Swine to the highest limits of the swing. Swing out over the water and jump in. Swing with swingers.

  • I am a professional. I know what I’m doing. Do not try this at home. It takes years of practice and education to do what I’m doing. Not to mention good social skills.

    The island beach bartender will weave braids and beads into your hair when business is slow.

    Men beat each other, that’s their way, but beating women and children is the way of the savage.

  • cyndietodd commented on the post, trunk 7 years, 9 months ago

    I love the expression junk in (my/your/his/her/the) trunk. It’s a fun and even kinda polite way of talking about the size of your ass. We’ve needed this for a long time.

  • cyndietodd commented on the post, glimmer 7 years, 9 months ago

    A glimmer of hope – wait, no, that’s just the light dancing on the water. Let’s sail the boat towards it, though. It’s pretty and shiny.

    I think I’ll make it my New Year’s resolution to learn to play bridge. And make my boyfriend learn, too.

  • cyndietodd commented on the post, dessert 7 years, 9 months ago

    I’m not big on dessert. I prefer salty snacks. But chocolate is usually a pretty sure bet. Chocolate-covered salty stuff is an even surer bet. And a sweet liqueur is the best way to appease my sweet tooth.

    The heat of the fireplace kindles the warmth between our hearts as the dog curled up on the bearskin rug runs and barks in her sleep.

  • cyndietodd commented on the post, flood 7 years, 9 months ago

    The Nashville Flood of 2010 didn’t touch us because we were on a hill, but our neighbors were bailing out their basements. Their water-logged heirloom furniture that they had kept in their basements were dragged to the curb for trash pick-up. The curbs of Nashville were the saddest sight after the flood.

    My favorite palette contains teal, red, orange, black, silver, and lots of shiny.

  • cyndietodd commented on the post, gown 7 years, 10 months ago

    I have a gown for every formal I have attended in the past four years and they are all stored in plastic dry cleaning bags in a climate controlled storage unit in the basement of my apartment building and I know I will never wear any of them again.

    Those sneaky little weasels drank all my beer again!

  • cyndietodd commented on the post, return 7 years, 10 months ago

    I’ll never return to California to live. I will return to visit my family. I am the only one of my family – on both my mother’s and father’s side – that doesn’t live in California.
