One, Two, One, Two, Three Four.

O.K. I've loaded the String Quartet and reposted the cat choir,
(Aspice Quod Felis Attraxit)

I'll put it on MySpace too, and maybe even Facebook.

i'm sure the string quartet, all (3) mp3's sounded great. My stupid computer here at work, which uses Windows Media Player, could not open them, so I could not hear them; which really started my day off with a bang.

Yes, yes, it WAS your idea to make poems out of the word verifications. I was just following your lead; again. Thanks for the atta boy, and the epithet was lovely too. I guess I enjoyed that process. Probably will do it again this morning, enit?

Do you have your tickets to Handel's Messiah at Benaroya under the supervision of G. Schwartz? Or are you going to check out one of the many productions of The Nutcracker?

Hopefully you and Miss M. will not freeze your tushes off while shopping downtown on Beethoven's birthday. KING FM is playing a lot of his tunes this morning.

It was 17 degrees in Sumner this morning. Brass monkeys were castrated painfully all over the neighborhood. But the roads were clear, and my faithful Isuzu made it to the office.

Always a poet of my word, following is this morning's exercise in the utilization of Word Verifications:

Pride’s Whisper

It was the time of Rityp
and all through the Hogan,
tucked in dark folds and corners
one could see the hasyna bloom,
as the terrible wind howled proceeding
the tiotypen thunder, crackling loud
right through the thick swaboll hides
like a runaway herd of cosorses,
heads down, trampling everything
in their shaggy path.

I stood outside wearing the warmth of
my buckskin hydeamp, preventing the pounding
ice pellets from chilling me to the bone—
for even a shaman, an elder tribiluk
will shiver when caught in winter’s maw.

“I am Votoectr,” I bellered in my small voice,
but the wild wind just tore at my braids
and clenched its teeth to my song.

“You are nothing,” moaned the torrent of the air,
“Less than the red alkie beneath your moccasins;
never forget I am Zieseabo, the god of wind,
master of storms—even the mighty swaboll
will not attempt to fly against my will!”

I bowed deeply to him, my feathers bending,
my ribbons descending, and fled
back to my stone hearth, to my fire,
and sat hunched over and cramped
as my fists stayed clenched all night.
