• deadponies commented on the post, pour 6 years, 11 months ago

    Pour out the water. This word makes me see a pitcher in my mind. It’s nice. It’s on a table. The window is open. There is a breeze. It looks out onto the ocean like in the opening credits of Cinema Paradiso. I’m […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, mayor 6 years, 11 months ago

    Mayor of Casterbridge? No that’s old news. Mayor of some overly frequented joint on Foursquare? Now that’s modern. Or maybe not. Maybe even that is old news. Facebook, Yelp, and who knows who else can check in […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, lending 7 years ago

    The first thing I thought of was LendingTree.com. How is that for consumerism? I guess now I’m thinking of The Merchant of Venice for obvious reasons. I don’t mean that in a racist way. Now I’m thinking of people […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, shorthand 7 years ago

    I find it strange that this is a word on here. I would think that with all the technologies available shorthand was already a thing of the past. I wonder if any of the other users here don’t even know what […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, nominated 7 years ago

    I was nominated for some school office in grade school. I didn’t win. The next year I was someone’s campaign manager who also didn’t win. But in college I became the chair of the student senate during my first run […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, upright 7 years ago

    I’m supposed to sit upright. I just had an ergonomic assessment at my work. I sit on one of my feet generally, and apparently that isn’t good, nor does it help my typing position or slouching. I wish today’s word […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, hearing 7 years ago

    Yesterday I just unfollowed someone on Twitter who had a hearing problem or so his profile said. He said he was deaf. I followed him because he followed me, but I decided to clean out the people I don’t actually […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, separate 7 years ago

    Separate as a verb. I guess that’s depressing. It shouldn’t be. Going your separate ways is often the healthiest choice to make. It’s just often difficult to do. It hurts and sometimes it’s ugly. But in the end it’s better.

  • deadponies commented on the post, hallowed 7 years ago

    I have no idea what to write about for this word. I’m not even positive I know what it means. How ignorant I am.

  • deadponies commented on the post, alibi 7 years ago

    Alibi makes me think of criminals, when it should make me think of innocent people. I think of cameras inside convenience stores that time stamp and show that someone was someplace else at the time something […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, sliver 7 years ago

    This makes me think about getting cut with fiberglass. I hate that. You can’t see it but it just hurts. I don’t even like hearing this word. It makes my skin tingle. Glass hurts. That’s all I can think about […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, sound 7 years ago

    The sound I’m listening to right now is industrial music being played on Radio Blast Furnace. I guess that means that it’s a lot of sounds. I love them all. I also think of Puget Sound, which is my dream place to […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, swan 7 years, 1 month ago

    Swan makes me think swan song. Which makes me think Charles Baudelaire. I guess it also makes me think of my dead friend Stephen, because he wrote a story that mentioned a swan, but wasn’t actually in it. I wonder […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, slight 7 years, 1 month ago

    Slight of hand is the first thing that comes to mind. I learned that term from my eldest sister long ago. She wasn’t a card shark or anything. I think we were watching something on tv and she used the term to […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, sunglasses 7 years, 1 month ago

    I just wrote on my to do list minutes ago that I need to buy new sunglasses. What a coincidence that that is today’s magic word. I don’t like the pair I’m wearing now, and I have two pairs of them. The pair I […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, earring 7 years, 1 month ago

    When I think of an earring, I don’t think of me, even though I technically have a few in both ears. Instead I think of you, and the way your earrings are a smaller gauge where they pierce the ear because you got […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, step 7 years, 9 months ago

    My friend Lindsay loves her step classes. I wish I had the nerve to go to step. It looks like such good exercise, but I’m too self conscious that people will look at me and laugh. There are so many mirrors and too many windows. I would feel like there was a spotlight on me. […]

  • deadponies commented on the post, muse 7 years, 9 months ago

    My friend Ed writes about his muses all the time. He makes songs for them. I guess I write for mine, but I call them crushes. Usually, I’m thinking of someone when I begin writing something. Usually I lose them along the way. Most always, I want them to see what I’ve written.

  • deadponies commented on the post, amuse 7 years, 9 months ago

    There is a lot that will amuse me when I think of my best friend from childhood. He just had that kind of wit. It’s too bad he’s dead now. I wish he wasn’t. Too young. People shouldn’t die like that.

  • deadponies commented on the post, band 7 years, 9 months ago

    Band feels like music. So there. Today I was listening to the Cocteau Twins and The Spanglemaker played. I always avoid this song because it reminds me of someone who is dead and I still miss. Maybe I need a band aid. That wasn’t clever. I know it. They’re still playing.
