Blown Away

One of my students was sporting a new tshit today; navy, with jeans appliqued on. He's about 13, has braces and an attitude. His shit::

KNOW THE FUTURE
READ THE PAST
BLOW AWAY
THE DARK CLOUDS
AND WALK
THE AIR
HIGHWAY
LOOKING FOR
A
WORLD
OF
DELIGHT

Maybe it's private, but... I think Charlie is right when he says Mr Jose Gonzalez is spot on with these lyrics::

Ten days of perfect hues
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love

Also, my solitude ended on Sunday when I met up with Ethan and his lovely mate for lunch and some tomb-spotting. Dunno why but the whole day stunk like fish. Just got worse. Anyways, all was good and I had some yummy tofu lunch and then cast an eye over some martyrs tombs. Zenit came so photos later. But! My Zenit album has been updated with photos from the previous month - the lake trip, randoms, chairs, My Dear Charlie, etc.

I love that you are teaching abroad. I've always wanted to do it. It seems like an amazing experience.

So where can I get myself a pair of appliqued jeans?

mskp said...

evol kween, you should break out the bedazzler and the hobbytex and create your own magic!

p.s. we saw tonia todman on brunswick street the other day [and toby's right, she does have a really small head] - proof positive that you shouldn't hang out in fitzrong...

Has anybody seen
a dog dyed dark green.
About two inches tall,
with a strawberry blonde fall;
Sunglasses and a bonnet
and designer jeans with
appliques on it?

Heartbeats was originally written by The Knife but I think Jose's performance of it is so much nicer and sexier. He's delishus.

Thanks for the credit Audrey.
I confess, I've never heard either.
Must just be a poetry geek.

Trust me, I can normally never name original artists. You should listen to Jose Gonzalez. He's poetry in motion.

Okk and it looks like the lyrics need tweaking, thanks Dearest Charlie. It's 'made', not 'babe', which yeah, maybe is better.
