My Sister And I
(I have two younger sisters...one is 18 months younger than me, the other is 8 years younger...this is about my middle one!!)

She's on the left...both looking respectable, but Tigger wanted in!My sister and I used to spend a lot of time tying each other with skipping ropes and hanging each other, once knotted up, in the wardrobe upside down...we'd then time each other to get out...

Used to run around the room with sleeping bags over our heads with our feet sticking out the bottom...one arm forward holding a torch in the dark...looked like surreal glow worms...

When she had a face-brace to sleep in, I once woke her up to play 'horsey' as I'd attached my youngest sisters child-reins to it hehe...

We had words for 'Peer Gynt' (Night on Bear Mountain)...they went:

Pinch him, Pinch him, Pull his hair,
Pull his hair
Pull his hair
Pinch him, Pinch him, Pull his hair
And turn him inside out!!

(It's what the goblins were supposed to be doing to the poor unfortunate who got lost in the dark and had to spend the night sleeping outdoors on the mountain...)

I have no idea where the lyrics came from...shame really. Maybe we made them up?

We also used to do two-part harmony for 'Edelweiss' and 'The Frog Chorus'...with our faces half-submerged in cereal bowls full of water lol!!!

Glob glob glop - blay-eh-i! etc etc etc

Sounded funny and always ended up spluttering with the water going up our noses because we were laughing too much....

These days, she's married to a drummer in a jazz band...she teaches flute, sax and piano, he teaches drums and she has two screaming waahs! One is four, the other will be one in April...and I helped deliver it at home...amazing experience!!

The last time we did the Frog Chorus water bowl thing was a couple of years ago...

It isn't a poem
Non curo. Si metrum non habet, non est poema.

a poem."
You are a type A personality. You like bright
things, you don't call in sick to work, and you
have devastating opinions about art.

LiveJournal Haiku!
Your name:vampgirl
Your haiku:so we could shake hands
with people and read them to
a union jack flag
Created by Grahame

I prefer:

5 - Autumn days draw in
7 - And the long grass is jewelled
5 - Summer days have gone...

Although a form of 5-7-5 syllabic content is generally expected in the 'western' idea of the haiku, it does not necessarily have to be the case...

Defining the haiku form

(guess who won a competition for that nugget and had it published in a book of school poetry when she was 8 lol!)



I'll stop there...going out tonight, corseted and 'Death'-like...will probably get drunk on absinthe lol!!

The top of my toothpaste looks like Cthulhu!!...I've left the lid off it for a week, and everytime I squeeze it, it comes out from a different angle...which dries and has created a few fat tentacles lol!!!

I need new toothpaste...

Oo, haiku. I've been trying to read up on haiku recently, being as I am a big fan of the limited form as a means to freedom and such. Actually, The Register (sort of computer news site) asked readers to send in their haiku based on those Nigerian 419 scams (you know, those emails that promise you a percentage of £300million if you let them use your bank account). Okay, so ti's not a seasonal theme, as defined by the acknowledged instigator of the modern haiku - Masaoka Shiki. Some are good fun though :)

Hah, and I used to beat my twin up all the time, I can vividly remember us having a good fight once, can't remember the reason, but he deserved it, obviously. Siblings, what happens when an irresistable force meets an immovable object?

If you're going out tonight, have one on me, I'll pay you later.

I have Peer Gynt as my home phone's ringtone (sad, i know, but infinitely better than its normal ringing sound which is high-pitched and annoying) and will now be singing your lyrics whenever anybody phones me :-)

Oh dear...sorry for doing that.

Auto-suggestion is a dangerous thing...always ruins songs for me...

e.g. Placebo : Nancy Boy

It all boils down to pant reversal
When you've run out of pants and you've run out of persil

My ex-bf made that up, and I CANNOT listen to that song anymore without hearing those words:/


I have 'fantaisie' or something on my phone...had Tetris for a long while though;)
