ABBAwocky

Cute little kid at the show tonight smiled at me a few times when she was going up and down the stairs with her parents. At the end of the show she made a point of getting my attention and grinning and waving at me while she was heading out of the theatre. So very cute. Kids rock. Could I get one or two of those, please? Well, not today. Not this week. Not this year, either. But sometime? I promise I’ll be good…

Adam’s cooking for me. He’s so sweet. I’m so hungry.

I wrote a poem about work – specifically about a position at work we like to call Toilet Tart, where you stand and guard the wheelchair washroom to make sure no one who’s not handicapped tries to use it. Yes, this is an actual position at my work. Anyhow, I wrote this poem, you might recognize the poem it’s based on (at least I hope so, otherwise it’s not nearly as fun…)

ABBAwocky

‘Twas brillig, and the Alex staff
Did gyre and tango on the stage
All mimsy were the cast and crew
And the Ushers outgrabe

“Beware the ABBA fans, my son!
The jaws that whine, the camera spies!
Beware the Pieros man, and shun
The frumious scalping guys”

He took his vorpal torch in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought –
So rested he by the office door
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The ABBA fan, with eyes of flame
Came whiffling by the tulgey stair
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal torch went clickey-clack!
He left it dead and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the ABBA fan?
Come to my arms, my toilet tart!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the Alex staff
Did gyre and tango on the stage
All mimsy were the cast and crew
And the Ushers outgrabe

Work is like life’s intermission…
