“I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.”
― Johnny Depp

Word/expression of the week – off-kilter – (adjective and adverb) – not in perfect balance, not in the usual, expected, or correct condition or state. Unconventional or eccentric. Synonyms – bizarre, cranky, crazy, curious, funny, kinky, outlandish, quaint, screwy, wacky, weird.

amidst the chaos

disarray ala mode

 methinks a brainwash

with a phony barcode

include a bit of parody

 a smattering of drama

day by day show biz

in a frenzied twirl
