counting down to end of summer

another Friday 
another Fridaycation
 my Fridaycations
 are winding down
 I refuse 
to count 
there are 
too few 

I am not sure what my plans are today
 I am feeling lazy
 I am feeling

when I said
to Toonman
told me
 a comic
 one that he cant recall the name of 
the one
 he said
 we may not like 
is using
 'I'm whelmed, but not overly so'
 as the title
 to his act

 I said 
I love it
 I love it 

for eons
 I have 
you can be 


 no one 
 I'm whelmed 

it tickles 
my sense 
 the absurb
 to claim 
I am whelmed

 state of feeling 
 to do



while I am figuring it out 
here's a photo
 to enjoy

Toonman said
 it could be
 a launch pad 
at Kennedy Center

me looking up at the sky
Times Square 
at the intersection
Seventh Avenue and 42nd Street
 my iPhone's Hipstamatic App's 
W Mag FreePak with the Wonder lens and W40 film 

Enjoy Friday
I know I will 


  1. I agree with your post, and I love looking at NY through your eyes. XO

  2. Ha! oddly I watched 10 Things I Hate About You (one of my favourite movies) last night and your whelmed talk totally reminds me of this:

    Fantastic photo!! I love photos talking straight up the way like this

  3. Summer may be almost over but you are Looking up! :)

  4. Haha! I see Aimee has already mentioned the 'whelmed' discussion in the movie last night, how funny that you should mention it today. Well it seems to be official, I couldn't find 'whelmed' in the dictionary but if enough people start using it, who could be added!

  5. p.s. that is a very cool 'space age' looking image Daryl.

  6. I love the perspective you have taken this photo. Good choice!

  7. Oh my goodness, I LOVE "whelmed!!"
    It's perfect for so many things. For me anyway!
    Love this shot.
    I am getting a lot of "dark stuff" with the combo, but I do love the tones.
    Gotta keep working with it.
    You have a wonderful day!

  8. I stay whelmed and I love that word too. I've never heard this analogy and you are so smart Ms. Daryl. Hope your Friday is a great one..

    This shot is probably how all mine would look if I visited. I would need someone to guide me, as I would constantly be looking up. MMS

  9. You are right, whelmed is something nobody talks about.

    Your photo is dizzying is a good way. I'm really enjoying my W magazine freepak. I'm still using it.

  10. I'm "whelmed" all the time." I just don't say so. If I'm grumpy in the morning I simply greet people with, "Morning." I leave out adjectives such as "good" or "fine."

  11. That is one crazy sky! And now you've got me thinking of all those over- and under- words and if they can or can't be used either way and in the 'middle.' Well, I am overjoyed the weekend is just about here but can't be underjoyed when Monday comes....I'll just be pissed the weekend is over. Enjoy yours!

  12. "whelmed"; a verb meaning to be darylized to the max.

  13. BTW:


    Verb: Engulf, submerge, or bury (someone or something): "a swimmer whelmed in a raging storm".
    Noun: An act or instance of flowing or heaping up abundantly; a surge.
    Synonyms: overwhelm - inundate - flood - deluge - overflow

  14. Count faster! I am not a fan of summer.

  15. pretty little mammatus cloudies!
