The Nexus of Desire

Friday, August 17, 2018

Looking out

In the morning,
after the rain, she
listened to a couple

of Aretha Franklin
tracks & then got
ready to go out.

performing under heat-related stress

Her guilt at having left a church
of such size, scope, & magnitude
has become a legal issue for both
distributors & career counselors.
"Woman Held over Trafficking
Girls" is the headline located right
next door, is put there for décor
& as a fallback methodology to

solve all problems caused by any
downloaded underdog world
strike. Why are homosexuals so
concerned about big business?
Commercial objectives are not
the only matter of import today.

to conceptualize time

Forgotten artifacts made from the
finest quality silicon carbide stones
are being cooked or warmed inside
the rice cooker. The extracts are not
only lucid but the phase portrait
indicates they've bounded solutions.
Everything fuses. Or, maybe, it's just
that everyone lined up for a turn at

the switch merges into the one person.
Them. & me. Themey, you might say.
The things we say to ourselves! My
doctor addresses herself to the best
yoga positions to aid fertility. Escape
peaks are small. I miss being touched.

Unlike the best renditions

The eutrophy of lakes occurs
gradually as a cumulative effect
of small decisions. In Kolkata
the norm in art photography
is a dynamic personality & a
restrictive diet. What's left, after
crawling restrictions & censor-
ship, is a moral nadir that leads

to psychological breakdown &
an inability to withstand un-
wanted reminders of Fanon's
dictum that colonialism doesn't
come to an end with the decla-
ration of political independence.

From the complaints log on a scam caller phone number

At 3 o'clock in the morning Who are you and why are you stupid SMS?

If it is me, I will kill and send me an SMS in the middle of the night.

Just read the manual. I do not even know the meaning of call center lines, firewalls or static IP. "There is a modem, it shines shiny." Okay, my PBX and CTI are all shining.

There was a talk on the water server. I was told you sent me fax before, but where did you send me fax?

Personal career Seminar of DODA is a young woman, a newcomer.

As soon as I called the phone, I suddenly said "I will become a john vine", so I became frightened and hung up the phone.

Suddenly call me and guide me to the atmosphere that I signed up for the word craftsman and contact the consumer center that will send you the document saying I contracted at a later date and correspondence I want the fraud group of this kind to catch really quickly.

I forgot my opponent's name (company name). When the electricity charges used by customers are switched to ~ our service .... It was a phone call from a "press selling service company" that says to say that. Since I did not want to be a partner, I turned down early, turned off the phone, registered as a nuisance phone.

I came while I was at work. I have something to help with this site.
