random assortment of thoughts….

i decided that those of you who aren’t following me on twitter are missing out on my very brief bits of wisdom. and so i have created this lovely little selection for you. although i do hope that our libraries aren’t someday cluttered with “the great tweets of the 21st century”. then again, that may be my best shot at getting published right now. : )

anyway, here you go. tiny little musings by me.

i tried to tweet using a blackberry, but it didn’t work on anything….phone, email or tweet….i gave up, but now my hands are purple.

open mic tonite & i have become a lepidopterologist-i have at least 42 butterflies in my stomach that i will need to care for.

note to self. quaaludes are not an ice cream topping.

sneezed all day-took 2 nyquil-i should be out until thursday….of next week. didn’t get to write today except a thank you note – to puffs.

harry potter exhibit @ m.s.i. in chicago was AWESOME! i spent 2 hrs with alan rickman’s “snape” robes. have been asked not to return.

colored my hair burgundy. it really brings out the red in my eyes….at least that’s what the cop giving me the breathalyzer test told me.

it’s so cold out here. i’m getting ready to build a fire. hmmm, i wish i had a fireplace to put it in. ah, well – dining room it is!

maybe the reason i’m always out of the loop is because i think outside the box. geometry is hard. “i was told there would be no math.” (chevy chase.)

i am several of snow white’s friends today. sleepy, sneezy, dopey & grumpy….where is doc when i need him? love, “the every bashful” barbie

i am terribly in love with ben franklin….the inventor of the wood stove.

regrets are a dime a dozen….that reminds me, i need to go to the bank.

about to go to the dentist-uncertain if will be able to cover my bail – should the need arise. i’m on halcion-their backup plan i guess.

facebook follow up….

*dentist went well, i left him without injury. he told me i should be able to go to open mic tonite & perform. stole his home address & wrote down his license plate # just in case there are complications. was that wrong?

did i mention i don’t like dentists? i hope mine liked pizza – i’m having 20 delivered to him!

i drove through the clouds this morning. the smokies appear to be up to 2 packs a day. i wonder if we should all chip in & get them a patch?

halloween –

girl’s costumer choices – hooker/cheerleader, hooker/witch, hooker/disney, hooker/alice, hooker/ghost, hooker/angel–going as hooker/batgirl.

may change costume decision since the “hooker/ghost” one is pretty sweet. it’s made from 4 crocheted doilies….my choice as to placement.

home after fab party-food, drink, fun-great! turned out i was @ the wrong house, but once i was done throwing up, they called me a cab. : )

there you go. that’s it for tonite. be sure to tip your bartenders. if you liked these thoughts, you can find more on

  1. Geometry IS hard. I’m trying to determine the derivative of the box of thought as it is defined within the loop. What is the limit of being pensive and thought approaches infinity?

    OK… so that’s a little bit of calculus as well. Which I dropped out of in high school.

      1. Geometry I actually did pretty well at. I like logic puzzles. It was the nuts and bolts Calc and college level math that did me in.

        And now computers do the math. After the fall of technology, I’ll see how far my mathematic skills take me.

“Barbie Angell Uncensored” is a dazzling fusion
of poetry, comedy and tragedy

ASHEVILLE NC – Poet, playwright and raconteur Barbie Angell performs “Barbie Angell Uncensored: An Unfiltered, Uninhibited and Unapologetic Event” at 8pm Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at LaZoom Bar & Gorilla. The 90-minute show is a melange of works spanning Angell’s career, including her poetry, excerpts from her autobiographical play “Death by Sparkle,” pieces from her children’s book “Roasting Questions,” and rarely performed mature works.

A multitalented, multi-hyphenate personality based in Asheville since 1999, the always colorful Angell is recognized around town for her work as a poet, playwright, columnist, emcee, artist and fashion designer. She has been voted “Best of WNC” poet by Mountain XPress readers for 10 consecutive years, and her skills as an emcee have made her a sought-after host for local festivals and large events such as Planned Parenthood’s Condom Couture and the Reproductive Rights Rally. 

Angell has written sketch comedy, co-authored “The Kids Show: Definitely Not for Kids,” and penned one act of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” for Montford Park Player. She is currently creating and selling upcycled clothing in her own fun and funky signature style – some of which will be available for sale at the event, along with original artwork and prints.

Equal parts stand-up comedy, poetry slam and public confession booth, “Barbie Angell Uncensored” promises to be emotional, unsettling, hilarious, and as unique as Barbie Angell herself!

Tickets are available at for a suggested donation of $20.
