Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I also posted them to the "j0hn's lost thread" thread, and then forgot and posted them on Mother. Oh well. I didn't write them, I don't do haiku, never have, probably never will. I "do" iambic Alexandrines, or systemic heptameter, or ever colonic irritations, that's what I do. Now, even tho' I am weeping sad and lonely, in exquisite pain from my infected tooth (root canal on Tuesday), a lone lorn child wandering through the blizzards of Idaho, clad but in a few fluttering rags, my feet staining the icy crystals with my blood, I must put up Christmas decorations so we can turn them on on Monday, December 6, the Feast of St. Nicholas, who would put candy in my shoes if I only had shoes in which to put candy.

The last time St. Nick put candy in my shoes was years ago, when I had shoes in which to put candy. He filled them with chocolate creams and gumdrops and humbugs and all sorts of wonderful treats and set them near the fire so that the shoes would be warm and toasty the next morning. They were, and they were also full of melted candy. We had to cut the shoes away in order to get to the candy, which of course we did because the candy was all the food in the house and the shoes were too small for me anyway and being made of papier-mache they weren't exactly the height of fashion.

So I'm going to go put up Christmas decorations for a while.
