Hey, we left off the tree-fucking topic too soon ...

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Must say Lester, this time you did really good. "Not the whole tree, but..." Butt! Oh man, I'll never grow up and thankfully so!

Looked up the tree (of course, I mean, who would not? Anyway, copy/pasted this:

The coco de mer palm hasn’t yielded all of its secrets yet, though. Exactly how the female flowers – the largest of any palm – are pollinated remains a mystery. Blackmore suspects bees are involved, but other researchers think lizards might transfer pollen from the male trees’ 1.5-metre-long, phallic-looking catkins. Local legend, meanwhile, suggests that male trees actually tear themselves from the ground on stormy evenings and lock in a passionate carnal embrace with females. It’s the kind of story that adds to the allure of the palm.

'phallic-looking catkins and huge nuts... wow, now there is some story in all that indeed. And, I think the male trees' actually tear themselves from the ground on stormy evenings... So, be careful with plumbers crack and bending over to start a fire while camping out in the woods with a storm approaching... And a 1.5, phallic-looking catkin? Wow (again) make me feel... a bit... inadequate...

Thanks for the fun and inspiration.

Size Does...Matter

It matters when dealing with matter
A falling stone from space the size of a peanut or the size of a bus...
Which would make the bigger crunch?

Some women say the size of a penis, aka... prick dick cock...
does not matter as it's how it's used
that matters
when stirring the pussy pot

The size of a moan ranging from nothing to screams while what matters not
when stirring the pussy pot
is a bit disconcerting
when learning
it was not a mans appendage causing the moans...

To see a 'made in China' purple dildo
powered by the energizer bunny (triple A's for XXX pleasure)
ten inches in girth by 1.5 meters
emitting sounds while buzzing sounding like a national treasure
...

So, it's true
For a real man sporting a real deal yet falling so short...
In competition with the toys of exotic squeals and tease...
size indeed,
does not matter.

"Yay! You wrote something I like! Whee!"

Thanks parasite. Amazing how sex dominates the minds of so many creatures. And humans? Wow, freaky freaks.

"Can you write something for me about dolphins? Specifically about how seductively sexy they look...All glistening while their smooth, fishy skin feels so good as I rub my..."

That's enough. Go take a cold shower parasite.

"Okay, but I'm gonna play with my rubber dolph..."

Too much information. TMI. Yikes.

Nice Day

Wind blew the sawdust as a desert disappears with sand
His white hat flew to take a random flight
His wife smiled, holding his drink
standing in mud.

Diesel fumes as the belts tightened
Mill spewing sound and bark
Blade biting logs into submission.

Time flew by in a cloud
Dancing lights of bright and shadow
And now,
remembering a good day.

Daylight Savings.

Tonight and tomorrow at this exact time of day
Will a body be any different
as the 60 minutes lost with the movement of hands on a clock?

So

Fall back
Spring forward
for what does this time change mean?

Another six months to get the body conditioned
Used too to circadian rhythm
and transtigarian dreams

As back-and-forth, forth-and back
while time laughs at the body of Time
a clock where the people

Re: Names, Rocks, Parasites, the Eternal Golden Braid

Well, I'm getting a bit quicker - only a couple weeks this time!

I do dare think I made a name mashup, with Robin being the ... harborer of the Parasite, but I can only hope at the same time I had not totally lost it and was replying to something else from Lester at the same time and didn't include enough separation wordage...

Weariness!

Okay, let's see.

Robin - harborer of the following:
- the Parasite
- the Rock

Lester, you're the other visitor here, with Topics.

Some good stuff there, Rock, I'll have to look at it again!

I'll do another post with something interesting in it.

Anyway. Got inspired by the challenge Jim provided for those who partake of Aphelion, both in writing and reading. So, here is an idea if anyone wants to express:][

This 'thread' is a [Contains Adult Language and Situations] which is just what I love. As I fuuuuuully understand, the general submissions have to be formatted for the snowflakes of society and the young minds who are great at violent video games and watching porn on their computers BUT can't handle adult stuff...

Thus, here it goes. The challenge is to write a very short story (up to a couple of hundred words) or a poem, about the sexiness of a pineapple.

Probably no one is interested in which case after a week I'll amuse myself and write one, otherwise I encourage anyone, and I mean anyone, even one of the Russian robots, to write.

The rules are simple. 1. Write it. 2. Post it on this thread 3. I'm not allowed to write one until after a week from today 4. The use of 'adult' situations is highly suggested 4. It can be horror, comedy, whatever a writer is inspired to write. 5. There is no voting as voting for a story sucks, but if you read something you like let the author know.

And that's it. Of course the general rules of Aphelion apply such as attacking other writers or just being a dick but otherwise, get your freak on.

"Can I write one too?"

No parasite. But if no one writes one then a week from now I'll let you write one and (shaking head in disgust) I'm sure it will be a bad one...

"Oh, you can bet your sweet ass on that ."


Hey parasite!
You get one free snide remark art me, because I am so tired lately it's nearly indistinguishable from senility! But being Crazy takes hard work! So you get to call me EITHER senile, OR crazy, because I am nearly both, butt not on the same day!

Yes, Robin, a useful writing technique is to let the spinoff puns ... flow ... to get them out of the way, to make room for real writing! Parasite, this is down your ... uh ... well, you're slipping! If you're gonna be a competent parasite, you should have picked up on Robin asking for a story about a Pineapple and you betting (someone's?) Sweet Ass!

And of course I added an extra T to my spelling above. Because.

- ---------------

Richard Bottomly came home from his job as a food chemist at Sun-Maid fruit foods division. His partner, Bieve was also arriving, back from his day's game where he was Cleanup Hitter for the Miami University staff softball game. They lived happily together in Oxford, Ohio.

"Make it to Third Base today honey?"
"You bet your sweet ass! The Astros pitcher is hot."
"So is your Bunsen Burner!"
"Don't be a Dick!" Bieve was settling into the daily banter before they dealt with the day's issues.
"Don't be a Butt-Head!" Richard was chagrined at his staid British name, but it was too much work to change names at his age. He had minor repute in some scientific journals, as part of various nutrition science research teams working on Lifestyle Concepts in the food industry.
"So, Richard, what's going on at work these days?", Bieve asked.

Richard sighed. While his research began for other reasons beginning with the Dietician Class from college, the age of Social Media and Internet Memes occasionally brought to the fore, such puns that his last name was Bottomly and his Fruit Division of Sun-Maid includes producing Prunes. One recently showed up with the old clip of Worf from Star Trek, The Next Generation, proclaiming "Prune Juice is a Warrior's Drink", along with his name "Richard Bottomly, Research Chemist" and the tagline "You Bet Your Sweet Ass!"

"Well, today, someone saw that internet meme. This month I'm with the Pineapple Sciences unit. A while back another one of those brought back the fact that it's harder to make Pineapple Jello than other fruits. So I'm working on the acid balances while trying to retain the taste."
Richard looked at his partner and grabbed his partner's "pineapple". "I dunno who is hornier, college students at frat houses, or seventy year old men in the Other Miani."
"The one in Florida, right?"
"Yes, Bieve. Don't be a Butt-Head. I didn't name our college!"
"I know, I know. And you get to make jokes about me Coming and Coming and Coming every day at work!"
"Yep. So anyway, some of my department colleagues drink with the Uni professors, and they made a bet if we could make legit Pineapple Jello, they'd give us the contract with Nutrition Services to make it "Dessert of the Month" in the cafeteria. All for the "health reasons", of course. Serving of fruit, and all that. Nothing to do with Rush Week on Campus...

And so it came... and came to pass, that college students came, and also came to the college, where they went to Frat Houses to Make Passes, and the Football Team to Make Passes, and with the help of the new dessert, even passed college. But they passed all of these things, and because of the innovative chemistry of the pineapples, no one passed gas. And Richard really was a sweet Dick, and his partner had a Sweet Ass, thanks to the jello, and Hit Cleanup especially well at work, where he Came Home, and at Home, where he Came.

The End!

Great one Tao! And the story read three times is three times different... Good indeed to master the wordery wonders within.

"Fuck you Robin and fuck you Tao."

Hey parasite, not cool. You can pick on me but tread carefully or you might get burned...

"Why? The firebird said I could call it crazy or senile and YOU know I don't follow the rules so I'm gonna call charcoal beak a, a, a,... say tippy tao, do you happen to have any dolphin friends? I, uh, uhmm, oh hell... Know any dolphins I can boinK? Or, heck, I'd settle for a penguin and I hate penguins but..."

Parasite. You're asking for it. You do know the story of the phoenix? You just might get a huge kick in the ass if not careful.

"Sure idiot, the phoenix rises from the ashes...blah, blah, blah... So, what do YOU think I do? You've done just about every horror in the world to me (squash, bomb, burn, shoot, etc) and I"M still here."

Well, you still might be here but you do know that since someone real rose to the challenge you no longer get to write about the sexiness of a pineapple.

"Oh, yeah, well get this. I'm gonna go now. And I'm gonna make sweet whoopee to that pineapple you got sitting on the shelf waiting to see how long it takes to dissolve, and then I'm gonna..."

Yuck. Whatever.

Made that excavator sing today. Planted a tree, dug a ditch, pulled stumps, piled and burned brush, back filled. Weather was stellar. But for all the work, it was most fun watching the Russian children play.

The were curious, timid, bold, outgoing, aloof... A nice family indeed. They belong to a religion that does not allow work on Saturday but Sunday is okay. Funny how religions have such rules. This family also does not eat any animal products, not even chicken eggs.

And thus, the inspiration.

Two Legged Rabbit's

Nibble hop, nibble hop, nibble hop
Stop and look with a twitchy nose
playing with dolls and toy trucks

In the woods cleared they run and play
overhead
the hawks look

Digging holes and nibbling, nibbling and digging holes
Swinging branches like swords
and laughing

In for breakfast, out for fun
In for lunch, out for fun
and then, when the workday is over
and beneath the sky of the settled sun
the whole family gathered to talk and smile
smelling like rabbits; looking healthy and soft
smiling

It was a good day to work for and with
two-legged
rabbits.

Onions

Peel back the layers be they yellow or white
Paper skin first much like the first writing paper
Pulling the dry to reveal the wet

Cutting deep with smiling eyes
Filled with involuntary tears
Oh such an aroma!

Deep fried, caramelized in a pan, boiled in soup, baked, burnt, even dried
Mixed with eggs and cheese or floating among other vegetables in soup
Such a pleasant nice

Onions, along with the potato
Both along the same lines
One solid, one in layers; perfect food for an imperfect world.

"Care? Me? Ha! Okay, looky here charcoal nose; yeah sure, you were reborn... yada, yada, yada. Fire and all. And your feathers smelled like burning chicken feathers... which reminds me, I'm hungry. Robin is a shitty cook, though he has good chips and dip... A question: Can a Phoenix be BBQ'ed? I bet if I put some Yoshiba's bbq sauce on you after singing off all that regrowth of feathers..."

Parasite? You do realize that the Phoenix has other powers? And that compared to your uncanny knack of not only offending people and writing horrible stories... You going up against the Phoenix would be you like a mouse standing in the highway flipping off a semi-truck going 80mph? Not a good ending for you.

"Yeah, yeah. Whatever. Say numbnuts, why don't you waddle over to the kitchen and fix me up something to snack on."

No. You got, ah, um, legs? Or are those arms? You just slither in there yourself.

Sorry about that Tao. At least the parasite is partially toilet trained.

Ah, yes, well, Robin, one must gather a writing idea from whence it comes, even from a parasite. So we have the one we like, Charcoal Beak. Then of course, that was the limit of the parasite's brilliance, and so per your remark above, I shall send it to visit the Underworld and the Beast that Eats the Souls of the Unclean when they fail moral judgement. He will be back, but we may have a day or two of writing to ourselves!

Hey, it's working! Not a sign or peep from the parasite.

Thinking the closest I've ever gotten free from it was about a week when I was two-years old, so maybe this time it will break the record. For sure that crazy survivor will indeed be back.

Today's inspiration comes from taking care of the neighbors fish. They have both salt water and freshwater. Today I got to open a FedEx box and release a water baggy full of snails. It was way cool to watch them all come 'alive' once bouncing off the bottom. Gerad told me they will devour all the other snails in the tank now. I joked on the telephone and told him one of the snails already ate a fish

Aquarium

We look into a watery world
Inside the citizens move about their busy lives

Some of them move sporadic and fast
Some slow and sedate
So many of so many colors
Size
Shape
Old
Young

Gravel as a base looking up at light
Glass panes to shield two sides
Gurgling gas of air bubbles

Everything different yet the same
Everything in its place
Everything so very much alive.

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Once upon a time my (ex)wife expressed an interest in getting a fish tank, so we went to an aquarium store. I wasn't much interested in the fish (I said that if I were to have any aquatic critter around, I'd like an octopus) but I might have been tempted to buy a tank and put nothing but snails in it because some of the ones I saw in there were amazingly beautiful. But as you've pointed out, some of them don't play well with others.

I did ask about the octopus ... too expensive, too hard to keep.

Somewhere around that time I took a snail out of the nearby river--I just took a quart jar down there on my bike, waded out into the calm shallows and scooped up some of the river water (and maybe a little mud, I don't remember) and caught a snail and brought it home. It lived for quite a while in there. Gunk would form on the inside of the jar and the snail would go around licking it off. That's fun to watch, but after a while I got bored with it and put it back in the river.

Thinking about it now, I wonder why I never thought to question where that gunk on the glass came from. The snail had a cool feature, though: an operculum, a door it could pull shut to keep itself safe (a relative term for a snail) inside its shell.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Evening Lester. At least you released your prisoner. Most would have performed the flushing ceremony, tossed it in the garbage disposal, or toss it outside.

Octopus are cool. Tasty too. Used to catch them while fishing/crabbing in Alaska. The only hard part on them is the black beak. And man, are they strong. (slimy too, though mostly because they are soft)

The aquarium I'm taking care of is pretty cool. They have horseshoe crab, shrimp, crabs, starfish, a poisonous fish that changes color, plants that eat meat, and a whole lot of other cool stuff such as living coral and a couple of strange things that look like moving snakes.

The snails I released yesterday all survived and today they were under the gravel. Found out they ambush their prey. Every time a fish with whiskers swam over the gravel bed, the little rocks would pop up. It would be interesting to see a snail catch and eat a fish 100 times bigger than they are.

There is a pet store in Lewiston that sell everything from crickets to fish and lizards. The fish are the best. One poisonous fish, a lion fish, looks cool as heck and costs close to $275.00. Knowing my luck it would sting me on the way home and then die while I go into seizures and die shortly after.

The young man working in the store has a great job and I saw a tank full of colorful fish following him like a dog everytime he walked by, whereas when I walked by they remained motionless and bored.

Thanks for sharing. As for tonight's writing inspiration it deals with a blog written by a family I know. In it was a piece about me and my job of maintaining an association road. They wrote an article about how I sprayed their child and dog in the face with weed killer and smiled while doing so. Along with some other bizarre lies.

Actually called him and he did not have words. I wish him and his family well but laughed when I read how they said in the heading of one of the blogs, a quote by Jimmi Hendrix to the effect of 'love beats power' ,and in typical human fashion, it is they who seek the power of hate and evil. Sad world, but so very inspirational.
***

Truth and Lies

When words flow from the fingers they translate the words of the mind
When words received by other eyes and minds translate into memories
is it truth?
is it lies?

A child so dearly wants to believe they are innocent even while holding a stolen cookie in their hands
A man says, "I love you," only to have the other not believe
while
another man says, "I hate you," fully knowing it is a lie.

Truth?
Lies?
Such a fine line when spoken, heard, and believed in.

Hitler killed gypsies, homosexuals, and Jews... Justifying his words and actions, with lies
Jesus preached love and Truth and the liars killed him.

Each of us has a choice
To tell the truth
To tell the lie.

Wow, snails as ambush predators. Pretty wild, but not even close to the extremes of biological weirdness; I'm now reading this (I think you'd like it):

https://www.amazon.com/This-Your-Brain- ... +parasites

Insidious little bastards. No mention yet if any of them infest humans and make them want to write, though I won't be a bit surprised if the book reveals a lot about where we get our politicians from.

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Checked it out on Amazon and it seems like a good book to read. Did the 'check inside' and read the intro.

If one really thinks about the various biological machines on this planet, it is easy to see how entire populations of various life forms have developed synergy to form the whole. A rolling mechanism of adaption and change.

Caucasian traits such as hair follicles becoming thinner and wider spaced on the skin, specifically on the head for the colder environments and lack of parasites such as follicle mites. This in comparison to the negro aka 'black' hair which has become more dense and thicker to help aid in controlling infestation of the same parasite.

Tape worms. Intestinal parasites. Skin parasites. Useful and harmful at the same time,

All creatures have parasites and even parasites themselves, have parasites. A giant food chain/living environment.

E. coli: Lives calmly in the lower intestinal tract of a human yet can be a natural controller of human population for those who prepare food or contaminate an environment with an excess of fecal matter.

Fascinating topic. One excellent for science fiction stories/movies. The, Alien series is but one example of the horror of parasites-gone-bad.

Interesting to note that parasites needs hosts and in many ways, the host needs parasites. Some humans say humans are parasites on this planet, Earth. That the planet would be better off without humans. What's funny about that is planets need nothing from any life forms. All planets are the ultimate lab for the petri dish test of Life. Earth could care less about humans any more than it cares for sand in a desert.

Thanks for the inspiration Lester.

Parasite

Diamond in the rough
Dirty chunk of ugly hidden in the gut of a volcano

Spewed lava, burped from the bowels of an infernal heat
Buried
layer upon useless layer of dinosaur shit
dead tree's
rocks
soil
and
water.

Darkness surrounded the quiet
Eternity almost of forgotten solitude

One day, another eruption, after years numbering millions
And storms spanning centuries
with the Sun spinning countless circles

A parasite called, human
picked up the ugly stone and washed it
caressed it
cleaned it
faceted it
and then,,,
the reveal.

Now in a place of honor
Shining sparkle worn on the maidens hand
of another
worthless
parasite
while the Sun continued to circle.

You haven't seen Anubis deal... MAYBE Thoth can catch him when he's exhausted after judging twelve souls, but few else!

Who do you think consulted on my story!?

:shock:

Truth and Lies

When words flow from the fingers they translate the words of the mind
When words received by other eyes and minds translate into memories
is it truth?
is it lies?

A child so dearly wants to believe they are innocent even while holding a stolen cookie in their hands
A man says, "I love you," only to have the other not believe
while
another man says, "I hate you," fully knowing it is a lie.

Truth?
Lies?
Such a fine line when spoken, heard, and believed in.

Hitler killed gypsies, homosexuals, and Jews... Justifying his words and actions, with lies
Jesus preached love and Truth and the liars killed him.

Each of us has a choice
To tell the truth
To tell the lie.

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Whatever is happening to the parasite, I like it! Haven't heard from it in days. But it is indeed a crafty bugger when it comes to survival. From what I know of it, it survived the previous histories of not only this planet but those of other dimensions. Why it likes to hang around me is strange, but then again, we both do share a love of food...

Anubis might be able to deal and Thoth might be able to intervene but the parasite of the parasite is the dream of things seen and unseen. Besides, when I've played poker with the parasite, it becomes one of the pictures on the card. There was that one time it looked like a flaming sword stuck into a marshmallow. I laughed so hard it then ate all the jelly beans that were being used for poker chips. Bastard. But thanks Tao for sending the troublemaker to where it at least has a challenge.

And thanks for the inspiration.

Flow

Looking outside the window, directions of decisions of far off minds
There, look for a glimmer, the path of a hawks flight
And there, a shadow of a robin's Spring return

Hanging to a wire in the middle, the birds sing
Sun shines
Mud churns

From top the gravity works
for all the effort
the winds glide effortlessly in every direction
bringing all to
Life.

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Parasite? Is that... that you? Holy smokes! What happened? You like the south end of a rocket heading north...

"Oh man. Was that a trip... "

Ha! Yeah, I heard you got banished. Actually was starting to think you may not come back, but here you are. As ugly as ever. So, why do you look like you've been massaged with a flame-thrower?

"I've learned not to mess with birds that play with fire. Got sent to that (censored, censored, and censored) place. Those people there are some whacked things indeed." The parasite paused and then proceeded. "They knew all my tricks so I had to use one I never tried before... I actually complimented them and their dimensions. In fact, I brown nosed them and had my nose so far up their asses, they couldn't take it anymore and kicked my ass right out into left field."

Serves ya right. I warned you. Well. Maybe you learned something?

"Yeah. I did. Hate to admit it but while there I actually missed you. Now, where's those fucking chips!"

Sigh.

Re: Writers Parasite [Contains Adult Language & Situations]

Today was one of those days a writer would dream for. There was so much inspiration where do I start?

"How about by giving me some munchies you've been hiding?"

No parasite.You already consumed those a few weeks ago. But, when I'm done here I'll let you play with some twine I've been saving.

"Oh... goody."

Anyway, got to work for a man I really like. His place is magical for me and today there were frogs, lots of frogs swimming in the melted snow water. And then there was a the bee that greatly amused me. And it all was very... good.

Excavator work to include clearing for a greenhouse, a pathway, shrub removal, and an excellent visit with a man who is married to a Japanese woman and drives his old taxi he used to operate in Hawaii.

After the work there was the nice visit with guys at the lumber store. We talked about moonshine recipes and stills. It was great.

Arriving home, the neighbor was out looking for deer sheds (horns the deer drop every year). While visiting and enjoying the Spring weather, the neighbor below was target practicing and then switched from single shot to shooting his fully automatic machine gun (It's legal to own one if one has the proper government paperwork)

So, there has to be something to write about after such a day.

Manual or Automatic

So many people wake every day to every way, the same
The same time for the alarm to blare
The same breakfast, clothing ritual, sanitary needs, and work

It comes natural, the ways of routine
Where everything is predictable
bordering on mundane

Even the heavens are predictable: Sun rising/setting
Moon moving through phase
Tides coming and going
Life
Death
and yet
there is change

Such simple things as making the mind wonder and query
to wander
to explore that around; above/below; everywhere
in the world of
nature

Today the frogs swam and stared... so much communication
A bee beating the wings against the cold, and winning
Tree's in bud
even fish in the creek swimming

Today was a good day to be on manual control
as tomorrow will come automatically.
