Equilibrium

There are times I'm stricken cheerful
And it helps to get an earful
Of something somewhat right and reasoned
That nears to blasphemy or treason.

Is it not what we most abhor
Inside ourselves that we adore
When life and times begin to bore
Or make us giddy, even more?

EQUILIBRIUM, n. The natural state of chaos.

Oh, oh, oh....let me get some equilibrium here. I may be FIRST!!!!

TLP said...

Okay. Now I'm second. Which cancels out my being first. I've acheived stability.

Steady as she goes...*out the door*, not to be such a pest (too late.)

LIBRIUM medical stress relief

EQUIL everyone gets a fair share

EQUILIBRIUM a fair share of stress relief for the populace; a fare share of money for the pharmaceutical companies.

Hooray! I kept trying to get back to your blog Doug and it kept telling me it had been (gulp) REMOVED!
Talk about messin with your equilibrium.

My dad was once yelling at me and then he got all googly eyed and fell over. My mom said he had a serious ear infection and had lost his equilibrium. I thought it meant "drunk."

I learned to appreciate a boring life. :)

Good Wednesday!

Verifier: peniz. We are getting fancy, eh?

jenn said...

This is like balance right?

As I trip over gravity - I have none. I'm horribly unbalanced.

Ariel's verifier reminds us of the old blog "Waking Lula"

Nice poem:) Equilibrium is a good humpday word.

tsduff said...

Ariel - is that word verification allowed on this family blog? Or is the misspelling the ticket in?

The only time my equilibrium kicks in is when I'm on the Harley, negotiating corners and flying in the wind. Otherwise, all bets are off.

Perhaps we all need what Poe called "the imp of the perverse."

sauerkraut said...

chaos is what happens when certain places lack equilibrium. as is currently happening somewhere. ...

Jamie Dawn said...

My equilibrium is not very good.
I'm a bit on the dizzy side.

:-)

See you at Chandra tomorrow at 6:30!
Hooray! Jason will be there too, and maybe the Tater Tot. I'm ready to eat some good food and enjoy some good conversation.

Doug said...

TLP, excellent equilibriation.

Me too, Icy. I think I've mined the m's.

Flounder of the restaurant. Fish puns are a form of excellence.

Justice is served, huh Quilly? And doped?

Mutha, it's been here the whole time. I don't know what that's about. Glad you found your way back, though.

Ariel, someone at blogger must be writing those verifiers. How'd you like that job? Knowledge of Magyarul a plus.

Jenn, is that why it takes two to stand you up?

Right, Icy. An oldie but a goodie.

Isn't it, Actonbell? The weekend as close in both directions with the week closer.

Terry, equilibrium is more useful on a Harley than in a garden. You're right to save up.

Weirsdo, I hope so because we all have that imp, I think.

Pennsylvania, Sauerkraut?

I'm looking forward to restoring some equilibrium myself, JD. See you tonight.

Kiss kiss, Pansi.
