Eggs Tidy

For four days there has been a cloud hanging around. A dark rain cloud. It's followed me wherever I go. I awoke on Monday morning and there it was above me threatening to release it's contents upon me in my bed. But it didnt. That's not the point though. It threatened too and it's trailed me wherever ive been. I havent seen that pesky cloud for years and without rhyme or reason it just shows up.

So I stayed quiet, kept my head down and continued on with my cloud hovering above my every move.

But today I cannot figure out where it has gone. Im slightly anxious as to its whereabouts, yet like a child whose mother has left the room and the contents of the biscuit jar unguarded I feel like opportunity may strike. Or rather, that I may strike opportunity. smileymcslidey rarely feels like this. Rarely....

How long will it stay, where has the cloud gone and what will happen to me when I wake tomorrow?

Look, I found Bombed Village. You know the old man with no teeth that I told of you about? Yeh well it seems he and Bombed Village kinda hit it off. Now Bombed Village is his helper. The old man with no teeth isnt so good with electronic devices so whenever he encounters one he whistles and Bombed Village obliges. ATM's, eftpos, mobile phones and the like...Bombed Village is there for him. So that explains his absence. There's also been cats. Heaps of them. Sick skinny cats making quite a nuisance of themselves in droves. So look, you will hear from BV...He deals at night. Keep your eyes peeled and your eggs tidy.

It's all about rituals isnt it? Waking up to find a cloud above your bed, old men whistling and us obliging, stray cats at night spraying our cars and us having to smell said spray... Then occasionally something happens to break with our ritual and we seek cautiously to find where said interruption springs from. One of these days we're gunna make the most of that opportunity instead of seeking its source. One of these days....

I like this song 'Ritual'. It's ritual right down to it's core. It's by Tic Toc Tokyo and they came up with the name way before all these other bands decided on putting Tokyo into their bandname. There are those who lead and those who follow....
