i just thought i'd throw it out there.

well, i've gotten somewhere on allpoetry. advanced two levels today. won a silver and a bronze. any further advancement is dependent upon me entering and winning more contests and making dozens of really good comments. i don't need to post any more work. which is good. i don't want to post a lot of past work there. things i want feedback on, sure, but not just willy-nilly. from here on the poetry i submit will be original work written just for contests. i also have to host several contests and i can't do that until i win some, because i need the points. you can buy a membership, but you can't buy points. which is cool, they depend on how active you are in the community. there is also a bonus, the top five commenters each week or month, whichever, gets a full membership. i don't know for how limited a time, but hey.

doc brought home something called "cocktail croissant". they are about half the size of breakfast croissant, but just as buttery flaky delicious. and we have peppercorn Rondele and Vanilla Bean Alouette. And Nutella. And butter and jam! in fact, i can think of eating nothing but croissant for the foreseeable future.

I had that salmon for dinner last night. i cooked it perfectly. it took me a year but i finally got the hang of cooking on a gas stove again. it is so superior to electric. the skin was a bit blackened, which is what the skin is for, in my opinion. and the crust from the lemon butter in the pan and the salt, pepper and lemon zest on the top was perfection and so thick.

today i was going to eat light, and so i had a bowl of cap'n crunch. then i had croissant and butter and jam. hours later, i had chili dogs for lunch. and snickerdoodles for a snack. he keeps buying food i like! when the croissant are gone, i am having him get me coffee flavored slim fast powder. and i'm going to try to cut down on coffee and cola. my pants are getting a bit tight. time to lose weight for the summer. if i can shave for the summer, which i did today, i can lose weight for the summer. to that end, i took the dog for a walk today. i will take advantage of the cool weather to walk him now, before it gets all hot and summery.

i got a key to the front door for my anniversary. so i can take him for walks early in the morning before doc gets home. i had a back door key and key to the back gate, but it's a pain in the ass to unlock and unlatch the gate, it's a two handed, full bodied thing. so now i have a key to the front door and no excuse. it's warmer now and i got a hat and gloves for xmas to go with my scarf, so there really is no reason i can't take him out every morning when we wake up. put my coffee in a to go mug and head off to the park. then when i get home, stop the coffee and have my breakfast.

that sounds like a plan to health. it's still not eating vegetables, but it's a step in the right direction.

i have low hopes for my contest on allpoetry. i am looking for humorous pieces, the theme is "You're Wearing That?", a passive aggressive approach to a loved one wearing something they just shouldn't. in poetic form. i'm looking for clever. what i've gotten is the comment, "almost impossible to read. bravo". so i changed the background to something light, hoping that is what the vague and passive aggressive comment meant. i so don't understand people. why can't anyone be nice? i would hate to have that person comment on an actual poem i wrote.

so i have to come up with five more contest things. i need to look for pictures to use as prompts. i should be able to find some interesting stuff on my pinterest. or google. i can pretty much pick a word out of the dictionary and find an image to go with it, and then see if anyone else comes up with that word. that could be interesting. that may become a theme to my contests.

okay, back to commenting, before doc comes in and wants the computer again. during which time, i may go take a bath. i took a long shower and washed my hair and conditioned it really well in preparation for a bleaching. and i shaved for the first time since i last wore shorts. so i'm all smooth and lotioned up. i could go for a hot bath and more lotion after.

i also found the rings for my right hand and put them back on today. i don't know what significance that has, i just thought i'd throw it out there.
