YOU CAN FILL AN OLD CUPBOARD WITH WISE CRACKS. riginal. "For the sword of inspiration lies rusted without thought...best to slash at ideas than to rust and do nought!"(riginal 2013). "For what gaineth an unoriginal thought if it is embellished and framed in 'factual history' only to drown in the ever present sea of perpetual boredom and sameness of war and histronics." (riginal 2013). If you believe in these quotes please read no further.

Once upon a 'dime'. No, this is not a mathematical calculation by the learned Descartes who was in charge of the U.S. Treasury residual remnants of... Read More

"If a leaf falls in a forest and no one hears it fall does it make a sound?" That philosophical piece filtered into my mind as I was sitting on a branch in Scandinavia whittling a piece of bark from a fallen Scandinavian bark back sappling that had recently stopped barking back...or forward as it had just been uprooted by a back barking bear...10 minutes earlier. The fool of an animal had just injected phlebitis in my arm...a part of me which I was reluctant to part with as it is a much needed part of my overall body make-up...IE: not only is it a part of my body that is essential to the...

THE CASE OF THE MISSING BALLERINA. riginal.

The name's Dream, Mike Dream. Private investigator. I work outa Dreamsville. It's just above Nightmare Place. Somewhere north of sleepless nights. Smoke-filled hazy days. Someone once said to me "relax Mike, roll back those hazy lazy daze of summer."

As the only P.I. on call 24/7 in Dreamsville U.S.A. I didn't have time to roll anything hazy or lazy. Maybe the occasional salad relish roll but I didn't relish relish. I had to be alert. I lit another cig, they were killing me but I had to stay awake. Last time I fell asleep the butt burnt... Read More

IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN A MILLION YEARS...ridiculous. riginal.

Just wondering.Watched Donald Trump espousing his ideas.I don't know whether it was 'that' time of day but at that instance his comments made sense? Maybe it was'commonsense by default commentary'. Possibly because so many other media pundits and pollies aren't making any at this point in time? Maybe it was my unmilked coffee? Then again how that young magician 'Dynamo' from England manages to 'backbalance' beyond gravity in the street has me believing in media magic too! I reckon either the onlookers are in on it or he...

THE HA HAW. confrontation. riginal.

This story was told to me by a very ancient Tibetan priest. Y U Hung Low. I was on a shrinking 'fat finding' mission in the Tibetan Alps for a weight-loss company,'Stopeatin'fatchance.' American based company with a "hot diggity dawg that's a fat lie!" franchise strategically placed in every corner of Congress.I had travelled the length and breadth of Tibet to find this wise, skinny, translucent old fellow. My aim was to buy his 'skinny diet' diet secret. The Congress incumbents sponsored me heavily 'under the tablecloth' as they wanted a permanent... Read More

EPISODE 3. SALVATION. riginal. CONCLUSION.

SOME NEWLY FORMED 'STARS' THINK THEY OWN THE UNIVERSE! riginal.

SCENE: Universal Heavens. A young beautiful sparkling charismatic 'NEUTRON STAR' is pulled over for speeding on the Milky-Way by patrol officer Darth Vader who moonlights as a speeding/parking officer and 'garbage disposal' worker for N.A.S.A. Gotta make a buck somehow? If you look up Neutron star this will all make sense...perhaps.Can't be bothered? Pour me a cuppa too then please.

STAR: (speeding...sees Darth's Galaxy in 'round view' mirror, sabre flashing. She pulls over, straightens her low cut strobe dressage).

I know Rigina, when it takes a week for legite comments to appear it is upsetting, and it is killing the site slowly. Surely there must be a better way to address the spammers and floggers. Also taking away ratings if you do not post in a period of...
