Dog Food...

Mona has a friday word "HAND"

And the best I can come up (naughty thoughts not included) is this?

And lyrics from the Pearl Jam Song....

"Severed Hand"

Big man standing behind an open door
Said, "leave your lady on the cement floor."

"Got some kicks, wanna take ride?"
I said, "Yeh,..."
"Take your pick, leave yourself behind."
I said "Yeh,..."

I've no fear but for falling down
so look out below, I am falling now
Oh please understand, I just need my friend
a way home.

Tried to walk, found a severed hand,
recognized it by the wedding band.

"It's okay, do you want some more?"
I said, "Yeh,..."
"You'll see dragons after 3 or 4..."
I said, "Yeh,..."

"Understand, I'm not falling down"
I said, "Look around, the room's taller now,..."
I can't close my eyes, cause I see the sound
in waves.

In waves, lets me stay calm.

If I don't lose control
explore and not explode
a preternatural other plane
with the power to maintain.

Like a tear in all we know
once dissolved, we are free to grow
"What is human?,... What is more?"
I'll answer this
when I get home.

Pretty dark I know..several interpretations of the lyrics on the web.
Enjoy the weekend folks.

Eli said...

Oh, I would totally shave my head and get my body waxed for $5k. I like my hair short anyway, and I don't really have much body hair...

Mr. J said...

You ate a bug.. Hhmmm, how did it taste?? Oh yeh, McDonalds back home is a zillion times better, it's the spices that make the difference, I think.

@Keshi.. thks. I just picked up the meme, not sure why they used the numbers that they did.

@Eli. Yup I Have more body hair I think, relatively speaking that is.

@Me... I just swallowed it, better off not tasting the bug I think. dunno, but tags like these make posting easy.

@Aditi.. Thanks

Wow that was a pretty long tag! Who comes up with these questions? lol! I love peppermint too...I hate spearmint (the green one) for some reason it makes my throat sting.

lol @ your answer to "have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake?"

Szerelem said...

how come you would walk naked for a half mile down a public street for $100,000 but not pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?

karmic_jay said...

@Anshuman..thanks for stopping by.


@Szerelem.. Walking down a street naked would be a one time thing a dare, but posing naked with pics for posterity..umm no. lol hope that explains it?

Keshi said...

I mean peppermint! :)
