April 8 BRIGHT SQUARES

Today’s Bright Squares are two pictures self took from her porch a few minutes ago: both of her clematis montana (“white surprise” and “rubens”) are profusely blooming!

Join the Bright Squares challenge hosted by The Life of B here.

Spring is truly the season for clematis montana!

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: clematis montana rubens

Flowering spectacularly over the trellis now. This flower and the wisteria are mighty climbers. Most of the clematis’s blooms are on the top of the trellis, but there was one strand — this one — hanging down.

Love Cee Neuner’s FOTD.

Smile at a Rabid Dog

The supernatural killer (whose name self can’t quite remember, but it’s easy not to get him mixed up with other characters; he’s the narrator) goes into an L.A. supermarket, determined “to shop the hell out of this place.”

First encounter: “a young guy in a spotless apron” asks him, “Care to try a sausage?”

Narrator (“trying to act like a normal person chatting with another normal person”): It reminds me of manticore tail.

Young Guy: Manticore?

Narrator: You know, those big fuckers that graze along the Styx.

“He smiles at me the way you smile at a rabid dog, hoping it will bite the guy across the room and not you.”

Thoughts of a Ghost Janitor

I’m nervous about her coming to the party. So I’ll be extra polite, wear a clean shirt, and try not to set anything on fire.

Ballistic Kiss, p. 19

Self is excited about this party the MC’s been referring to since opening pages. He’s even lining up movies for his guests: Face/Off, Con-Air (Movies self has watched more than once! Did self mention how excited she was for this party? Something big is sure to go down!)

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
