  • Duvee

  • Stretch Marks

  • Moisturiser

  • Cheesecake

  • Gherkin

  • Papiermache

  • 6ft of garden hose

“Don’t Point Your Gherkin”

“The most comfortably fitting bra I have ever owned.”

“Stretch marks.”

“I use moisturizer. Your turn.”


“The car’s, or the one on your f00t?”

“Neither. The one Starfleet’s giving me.”

“Bumper bar. I’m tired of this game.”

“Then eat your cheesecake.”

“Don’t point your gherkin at me, Lizzie.”

“Answer the comm.”

“They think I’m slime who belongs in the dungeon.”

“Need to hide under the duvee, Trip? Should I make you a papier-mache fort?”

“Nope. Facing it head on. Let ‘em flog me with 6 feet of garden hose -”

“Commander Tucker, report to Starfleet Command immediately. Admiral’s orders.”

What kind of game are Trip and Lizzie playing?

How long have they been playing?

What does Admiral Forrest want?’

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
