Favourite images and words
These are the images that I have favourited during my time as a paying member with Blipfoto. For my record when I am no longer a paying member. Not necessarily my favourite blips of all time, just moved by them on the day they appeared - only allowed 3 favourites a day. I pick on the image, the words or the overall image-word combo.

SwillinBilly - Wednesday 26 September 2012: Freudian Blip

SwillinBilly - Wednesday 26 September 2012: Freudian Blip | Favourite images and words | Scoop.it

For Lazooli Girl. Hope your training goes well.

My wife bought a Freudian slip yesterday
She got it in the M&S lingerie department
It was laced with hidden meanings 
Soft, sexy, silky and stepped in sensual alliteration.
But she had to take it back today
Psychologists could see straight through it

Customer services were very good about it
And agreed to exchange it for a symbolic banana
She arrived home in a state of excitement
This iconic symbol clutched in her moist hand
She peeled it slowly while licking her lips 
But was disappointed when she discovered
Sometimes a banana is just a piece of fruit.

BernardPoet - Thursday 31 March 2011: We Had To Have The Truth | Favourite images and words | Scoop.it

Oh, we just had to have the truth
It had to come barging in
Like a bloke at a pub quiz
Who always has to win

We had to have the truth
It had to raise its head
You woke up in the morning
And it was there in your bed

Can't the truth be locked up
Away from her and him
Imprisoned behind black padlocked gates
In the basement of somewhere grim?

Follows on from Lies

Practicing juxtaposition in pictures, this little person has a really big bag. Perhaps I should have done the one where we tried to make her look like she was jumping out of the bag.

Grasshopper6 - Wednesday 10 October 2012: human genome

Grasshopper6 - Wednesday 10 October 2012: human genome | Favourite images and words | Scoop.it

Human beings have usually 23 pairs of chromosomes. Some bits of which (genes) have been faithfully copied from generation to generation since life began.

They make us who we are. The hand down traits from parents to children: from humanity, to eye colour to a predisposition to alcohol. 

Chromosome 1 is the biggest. Chromosome 2 a semi-recent fusion of two different chromosomes found in all the other apes. Number 9 apparently has to do with Border Personality disorder and number 11 has something to do with what sort of temperament we have. There is still much we don't know. But one thing is certain:

DNA is a much more efficient Factory than Andy Warhol's.

Lazooligirl - Wednesday 26 September 2012: Not a Poem | Favourite images and words | Scoop.it

I love being a girl, I do.

I love potions and lotions, mascara, lipstick and powder. 
I love perfume, eau de toilette, scent. 
I love straighteners, curlers, and colour enhancers.
I love clips, bobby pins and ribbons.
I love high heels, laced-up boots and stockings.
I love lingerie, leather and lace.

But some days, busy days, I would just like to wash and go.

i hit her over the head with my hammer and she saw stars.

she thought the pain and stars meant she loved me.

i keep the hammer and regularly give her a short tap on the head to keep the stars spinning and the pain smarting - she mistakes all of this for love.

Thistledown - Wednesday 22 August 2012: My Garden

Thistledown - Wednesday 22 August 2012: My Garden | Favourite images and words | Scoop.it

I went into the garden,
To play upon my thoughts.
To think upon my acts and deeds,
For what the day had brought.

I had to find a haven,
That would do away with grind.
A place with no frustration,
To ease my troubled mind.

Primroses lined the pathway,
And formed a brilliant hedge.
Low daisies made a curtsy,
To pansies at the edge.

Birdies by the trellis,
Fluttered around the tree.
And made their lovely graces,
Just right for me to see.

The sprinkling of clear water,
Would hardly let me pass.
The air that stirred so freely,
Made fountains on the grass.

I found within my garden,
Needs for my heart and soul.
For magical powers of ointment,
Healed me...and made me whole.

I Wonder

...if she's a fisher of men?
I wonder if I'll get caught again?

I wonder, should I take the bait?
I'm tempted. But hesitate.

I wonder, should I let her reel me in?
I don't know whether to sink or swim.

And I wonder if she would settle for me
when there are plenty more fine fish in the sea?
