Okay, so I missed last week and need to watch it on Hulu following this tomorrow… but for now I will pretend like I know what is going on.

Yikes…. Rachel’s senses are grossing me out! I would never eat if I could hear people eating that loudly. I hate smacking. Awww, John tried to touch her and she pulled her hand back.

I love Gary’s metaphor! The brain stays in the head and the office is the head. Lol. And now Gary wants to be appeased if he has to go on the trip with everyone to figure out the use of the machine. And Nina is back? Yeh… I am missing an episode. Read the rest of this entry »

I am catching up…. My apologies!

Bill, don’t fuss at your wife. She is just trying to make sure that you live another day, man! Gary’s mother looks like she is going to have a nervous breakdown any minute. Now, what in the world is up with Gary and all of that screaming in the morning? Oh, Dr. Rosen says that his screaming is a release or coping mechanism. Wow! I need to do that but my roommate would put me out. Lol.

Rachel is walking into the office and she can smell Old Spice halfway down the hall. John Bennett is in the office and apparently he is Dr. Rosen’s choice for lead tactical. And somewhere between the sexual tension between Rachel and John and her processing his Old Spice, Dr. Rosen comes in and tells them that an Alpha has been killed.

Jack Duffy was killed; he was one of the escapees from Binghampton. She can form electricity with his hands. He has burns all over his face and hands.  Rachel lifted a phone number off of Jack’s hand. The flashback scene seems like someone spit in his face and then pushed him off of a building. What a way to die. Read the rest of this entry »

Anything But Insomnia (Poem)

In Writer's Block on 17 August 2012 at 4:28 pm

Last night, rather this morning, my poetical divas Rebecca Dupas, Shelly Bell, & I were up at the buttcrack of dawn on Twitter. And being the poetical masterminds that we are, we started talking about poetical prompts. The prompts were:

1. I lay awake wondering.

2. Sleep don’t come easy.

3. Counting sheep.

4. 4am.

5. Not until I write.

6. The women who could not sleep.

7. Let’s not call it insomnia.

8. The last time I dreamed.

9. If I close my eyes…

So, off to sleep we eventually went, but woke up this morning with the will to write what we discussed. It is amazing to see the angle that we all took with the same prompt. Below is my take on the situation titled “Anything but Insomnia” . CLICK HERE to get Rebecca Dupas’ version. CLICK HERE for Shelly Bell’s poem.

Oh yeh, if you feel inspired by the prompts….write a poem and put the link in the comment box below so that we can become inspired by your work as well.

Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »
