Haiku for a Well Loved T-Shirt

Worn cotton t-shirt
Comfortable and loved
Spirit of the man

Explanation: Some days stuff just pops into my head fully formed and will not let me alone until I write it down. This is one such circumstance.

Apologies for the bad, bad poetry. No apologies for the photos.

Miss Fisher Random Thoughts (256)

What if Concetta hadn’t told Jack that she knew his heart was already taken? What if Jack had accepted her proposal anyway because he really cared for her? I think they could still be a happy couple, but Jack would always reserve a place in his heart for Phryne.

Even though Concetta doesn’t have blue eyes, she is a lovely lady that I think many men would feel lucky to be with. In that case, the sentiment of this song would have been quite fitting.

SHE’S NOT YOU (by Elvis Presley)

Her hair is soft and her eyes are oh so blue
She’s all the things a girl should be
But she’s not you

She knows just how to make me laugh when I feel blue
She’s ev'rything a man could want
But she’s not you

And when we’re dancing, it almost feels the same
I’ve got to stop myself from whisp'ring your name

She even kisses me like you used to do
And it’s just breaking my heart
‘Cause she’s not you

  • Phryne: What’s wrong?
  • Jane: Nothing, it’s just adults are boring, and I hate them. And I don’t want to buy all this stupid, boring, adult stuff and become boring adults.
  • Phryne: Hey, listen to me. Yes, we’re gonna get a dish rack and shower curtains and a cutting board. But if you think for one second I’m not also gonna get that marshmallow shooter, so that I can shoot you in the face with marshmallows when you’re asleep, then you’re the dumbest woman I know.
  • Jane: You’re gonna make me cry.

Little Miss Nobody - On 31 July, 1960, the body of a little girl was discovered in Sand Wash Creek Bed, Congress, Arizona. She had been partially buried and estimated to be between five-years-old and seven-years-old and had been dead for approximately two weeks. It was noticed that whoever had partially buried the young girl, had attempted to dig a number of prior graves. Her natural brunette hair had been dyed an auburn colour, presumably in an attempt to conceal her identity. She was wearing white shorts and a checked blouse along with sandals that had been cut to fit her small feet. A small, bloody, pocketknife was discovered near her body, however, her cause of death could not be determined. Despite a thorough investigation, the identity of the little girl was never uncovered. Locals donated money to give “Little Miss Nobody” a proper burial, with a local florist and mortuary providing funeral services.
