Solarize function ROCKS

I love how the blinds make the stripey effect, fun stuff!

And just because I recently read it, and I like it...
Dorothy Parker
I do not like my state of mind;
I'm bitter, querulous, unkind.
I hate my legs, I hate my hands,
I do not yearn for lovelier lands.
I dread the dawn's recurrent light;
I hate to go to bed at night.
I snoot at simple, earnest folk.
I cannot take the simplest joke.
I find no peace in paint or type.
My world is but a lot of tripe.
I'm disillusioned, empty-breasted.
For what I think, I'd be arrested.
I am not sick. I am not well.
My quondam dreams are shot to hell.
My soul is crushed, my spirit sore:
I do not like me any more.
I cavil, quarrel, grumble, grouse.
I ponder on the narrow house.
I shudder at the thought of men.
I'm due to fall in love again.

Love the picture and HHNT.

Doug said...

Sigh. Dorothy Parker is a woman I could have loved. Maybe been her next-to-last husband, even.

teacher's pet said...

Doug--wasn't he also her first husband?
Anyways, teacher, sometime it seems you can read my mind! How did you know she was one of my favorite authors and people?!!

Sar said...

It took me a moment to figure out what I was seeing. It's you and your piggies! :)

Logophile said...

Breazy~ Thanks

Egan~ Isn't it fabulous?? I love HNT, don't you?? It's soooo awesome!!

Doug~ I think you could have been perfectly miserable together, how delightful.

Weirsdo~ Great minds, but with a single thought...
