I had really good intentions about blogging (again!) today, but got sidetracked into more involvement with Immy. Footloose sent a revised version of one major picture which I will need to clear background from (pity this one demands that this be done) which is rather time consuming, and later sent a BRILLIANT cover for Immy Goes Flying, which she will hopefully post tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I had got involved with scoring (for violin and piano, as a preliminary for orchestra) a theme for Immy I dreamt up in February. I had thought I had lost it, and decided to write another, but as I was getting ready for bed last night the tune came back to mind, so I decided if it had stayed for that long it was worth keeping. I tracked down the score this morning and got to work on it. Then I did one for Fernis the Dragon, and am very pleased with that. I will try and put them on a player widget soon. Only 30 seconds each, but that is still a lot of notes.
Now I still have to do goblins and knights and an indignant deputation. Those should be challenging!
Anyway, that has left me with no time to cook up a post other than these three really awful rhymes on the theme of ‘crossed legs’ which I scribbled a few days ago under the evil influence of Madeleine Begun Kane who runs a Limerick-off where I recently got an Honourable Mention. What put this theme in mind, was, I think, that I had been needing to ‘go’ but had got involved in some writing I hadn’t wanted to leave.
They are a bit crude, but then limericks are supposed to be, aren’t they?
A man with crossed legs sat about;
‘My foot’s gone to sleep!’ was his shout;
More likely the stink
Of socks, I should think,
Which caused the poor thing to pass out.
A girl with crossed legs sat around,
For when she uncrossed them she found
Her assets laid bare
To everyone’s stare –
No panties she wore, I’ll be bound!
A youth with crossed legs sat in class,
And wriggled about on his ar… er, bottom;
When told to uncross,
He gasped out, ‘Imposs…!
Or else I some water shall pass!’
