Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
" 'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door;
Only this, and nothing more." - excerpt from The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe, 1845
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! It seems only fitting to quote my favorite poem of all time, The Raven, on this spooky, or as Poe would perhaps describe it; "ghastly, grim and ancient" day.
CK Bellevue was a wonderful end to a wonderful teaching career. CI won't be doing many shows next year, so I am going to settle in to a true "work from home" job. Coming home to so many great comments on my blog was thrilling. Thank you! Oooh, and the Two Peas Pub dinner was really cool! I couldn't stay the whole time, but meeting people who you previously just "knew" online was really fun. And the goodie bags! Holy Guacamole! Cat and Rosy . . . MWAH!
You know, I really didn't properly introduce myself in my first post, did I? What a blewbie move! I was raised on a small farm in the country of Florin. My favorite pastimes were riding my horse and tormenting the farm boy that lived there. His name was Westley but I never called him that. Isn't that a wonderful beginning?
Yeah. It's really good.
I didn't grow up on a farm. I've never known a Westley. I torment John instead. heh.
But I can pretty much quote every word from my favorite movie; The Princess Bride. TPB also inspired my blog title, although it is also accurate, since I'm right-handed. Julie and Jessie obviously were on to me! ;)
If I were a writer for Desperate Housewives, when Susan asked Lonnie if he embezzled any of her money he would have answered her with one perfect word: Inconceivable!
I am not a writer for Desperate Housewives.
I know, I know . . . inconceivable!
