The lucky life of a living brain

Here’s what I’ve learned about life (so far). ME: If it’s hard, it’s called LIVING. If it’s easy, it’s called LUCKY. Most lives are hard, that’s why this is a planet of LIVING BEINGS. MISTY’S BRAIN: The brain is made for thinking. Descartes had it right: “I think, therefore I am.” But where did that get him? Dying of pneumonia at the whims of a queen. He didn’t set a very good example for any brain to follow. It’s no surprise most brains take a different path, a safer path. A living brain is better than a thinking brain...

The weight of water

The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is drink about a liter of water. Going 8 hours without water makes my mouth water. Are you for all waters? Before you answer, you should know that it doesn’t mean at all drinking lots of water, but rather being someone who’s a jack of all trades or a good all-round man/woman. Like a fish which can live in salt or fresh water. Which means that’s a good all-round fish, or a fish of all trades, or a fish of all waters. Anyway, after drinking water I...

Dante’s Bolge

Here’s a word that sounds like it means one thing but it means something very very different: MALEBOLGE. I can imagine what Malebolge makes you think of. I write erotica, so you can imagine what this word makes me think of: one of the most used words in my stories – along with its less protruding female counterpart. But I’m doing the MALEBOLGE a great disservice because MALEBOLGE is not just any male bulge. It is Dante’s malebolge, so to speak. He’d probably send me to one of the circles of the Inferno if he knew I was even...

The food of the future

I saw an article in “The New Yorker”: WHAT FOOD WILL BE LIKE IN THE FUTURE and it started me thinking. Here’s my version of “What food will be like in the future”: In the future there won’t be food, there will be FOOD INSURANCE. First tier – The Rusted Metal level – will cover already chewed processed or unprocessed food, expired processed or heavily processed foods, rotting fruits and veggies. Just cut off the bad parts and, if you’re lucky, there will be some edible parts left. Clean water not covered. Luxury food and drink not included, so...

Alice in Fucking Unbelievable Land

Here’s how Alice and I met (as unbelievable as that may sound): Alice drinks yet again from the bottle that says “Drink me” when she knows perfectly well she shouldn’t be drinking from it, and…well…she ends up in Fucking Unbelievable Land. ME: Which way are you going? ALICE: Which way should I go? ME: It depends where you want to end up. ALICE: I don’t know. ME: You have to go one way or the other. You can’t just stand in the middle of the road. You’re blocking traffic. ALICE: Oh, pardon me! I think I will go right....
