grin...I think I started this one by challenging Anvrill to write a poem about how she met bsquirrel....and, the challenge of this thread is up to you...I tagged Anvrill, so she gets a "personal challenge". Choose anyone you like (Anvrill) , and any subject. (No hitting below the belt, either! PLAY NICE.

Oh...you may post your personal challenge only after you have met your own. (Or at least a poetic explantation of why you couldn't meet the challenge! )

And So It Began

Okay, awright, fine, so it's more like the story of us, not how we met.   But you need t' know more than just how we met to understand how we became, considering that was one long-ass process.

Okay... A personal challenge to someone, huh?

Wranx! If you read this, what about tryin' to write a mini poem about each of your ex-wives, if it wouldn't be bad fr yr mind?   I'm curious.

I just KNEW, that I shouldn't have opened this thread. I knew it, I KNEW it!

You know? The actual number of Mrs. wranxs is a closely guarded secret. Maybe, just some?

Again, I say, tag Lori and force her to do a Joyce poem.

She said burn ... together.

You know full well I don't read poetry, so James Joyce is simply a name I've heard; never read. Or at least, not to my knowledge.

poem #2 (Things)is posted in Open.

bs dude, I considered that very thing, However, to re-tag Anvrill is probably how that whole Toeballyragdeer thing got started.

Anvrill, if you had read it, you'd remember it.

As far as the next tag?...we'll see

More to come.

squirrel dude,
I have great faith that you will enjoy this.
You have all of the tools, the sense of humor, and as a friend pointed out, the scholarship.
And...I would be honored.

Anvrill,
Now that I'm no longer grumpy, just WHAT were you curious about??

Just stuff in general. Honestly, I had no direction in my curiosity, it just sort of ... existed. I'm like that. I'm very "ooh, shiny!" so I get ideas, but am never entirely sure what those ideas are.

So. Just generally curious. So the poems have satiated that, and made me feel a bit guilty at the same time. That's a difficult task. Just ask Mike.

While I'm working on my Ulyssean mastermess, Temptress, I'd like you to write a poem that mentions:

snakes
bunnies
sunlight
cypress
a standing pool
mirrors
wires
sand

and velvet!

(don't ask where my mind is...)

Omigosh..
ROFL! Don't KILL you, you ask? Geesh...well..um..I'll think about it. I promise.

Hmm...I think I can do this. Maybe tomorrow before I can get to it. Am I supposed to do this and then tag someone else or tag someone else now?

Thanks for including me. Umm...Now will someone kindly go into the Talk Lounge and dig up that brand new Truth or Dare thread Sharon posted and GET TO IT?? **geesh**

As a favor of course..and all in fun, eh?

Laters poet people! I'm off to work.

I will not bend to the cowardice of a silent judgement.
