Seasons Gratings, one more time

Lump of coal

Twas the night before
the 25th of December, and
all through the house
there was crap strewn about
The cats were hissing
and smacking each other;
and nary a dry Kleenex
to be found

I and my wife
had just settled down
to an evening
of computer games,
each to his own;
when suddenly
from the front door
there came
such a sound;
as if
religious proselytizers
were knocking

That turned out
to be the case
and we were then
with odd little beings
who demanded
that we accept
the true meaning
of this cold icy time of year;
to celebrate
the birth
of someone
who was born
sometime in March,
as far as anybody
who ever actually studied
the subject
could figure.

So we listened
and nodded
and uh-huhed
in agreement,
and they soon
went away.
Jesus Christ!

Went downtown again for the Picasso exhibit today.
What's a class act like that doing in a backwater hick town like Seattle?
Loads of fun but too many people interfere with contemplation.

This week

Missed the Book group meeting Sunday, just flaked out.
Most likely was a good one, poetry.
That's probably why I missed it.
Can't decide whether I want to feel like a wimp for not reading anything or an idiot for reading some of mine.
Monday started out with a donated pint of blood.
Meredith fainted a bit at the blood center.
She still seems weak but is basically O.K.
Tuesday was the 7th and my annual pearl Harbor joke.
Fooled around with Duke Nukem.
Wednesday was class.
Watched and critiqued the video.
Met up with some old friends on top of old Queen Anne hill.
Couldn't talk anyone into taking any of my CDs
Fooled around with Duke Nukem some more.
Thursday I edited the video and posted it in various places, mainly Facebook.
I don't think I did anything Friday.
Maybe I did, maybe I didn't.
I don't remember.
Saturday, I went out in the cold with a bucket and a brush and washed the mold off the VW.
And fooled around with Duke Nukem.
and I watched as much of the original "Little Shop of Horrors" as I could
before SNL came on.
Paul McCartney,
Today I contacted some people about putting the piano/sax piece on the next salon.
That's Friday, January 7.
Got all my musicians on line. Got the amended scores printed got the CD burned.
Got all that in the envelope stamped and ready to mail.
Hope there's room on the show.

Now I'm doing this.
Only now I'm not.
