Joy's 30th Birthday Dinner

We went to Chez Sardine for Joy's 30th birthday dinner.
It was a nice intimate affair
with great travel stories that featured
a lot of food
and a delicious array of food and drinks in our mouths
that filled our bellies.

It was some good celebrating.

I made the card above in the morning:
Liberty of London stationery carved into a 3 and 0.
I wanted more space to write
the secret thing I've been writing in my cards
so I didn't cut out the 0.
I rather like how it looks still filled in
and unmarred by the 0's gash.
What do you think?

Back to the Daily Grind

When I got back to work from my freakin' awesome
latest adventure in Tokyo and Taipei,
I had a chair of work waiting for me.

Jon balked at how much paperwork this was.
He doesn't really work with paper.

I got through most of it that morning.

It made me feel like this:

Two Poems Are Better Than One

It's poetry month!
I think the only publisher who actually celebrates this month is
Random House.
I get a poem a day from them
for the month of April every year
in my e-mail.
It's a lovely thing.

Anyway, I'm not sure how prolific I will be this month,
but here are two poems
just for you:
"Two Cats"
*(Wee came up with the first two lines.
When I asked her what she does when she's sad,
she said she hugs her cats.)
"Dead Bird"
*(It's about the dead bird I saw this morning of all mornings.)

I'm a little rusty at writing poetry, 
so just laugh with me.
Okay, here goes:

Two Cats

Two cats are better than one
Two cats are so much fun
Two cats, paired like peas in a pod
Two cats, neither of them are named Todd
Two cats, frowning at your skeptical face
Two cats, next on The Amazing Race
Two cats hike the Appalachian Trail
Two cats will never fail
Two cats are asleep in your shoes
Two cats got into your booze
Two cats think your stupid joke is funny
Two cats fart after tasting honey
Buht, buht
Buht, buht
Two cats slide through a box
Two cats chase the fox
Two cats love, love, love fish
Two cats, they share a splish!
Two cats nap on your head
Two cats, they pretend that you're dead
Two cats are better than one
Two cats are so much fun

Dead Bird

Oh, bird.
You once took flight,
high up in the air,
morning, noon, and night.
You loved what you did,
though perhaps a little too much.
Now you're feeling
a bit out of touch.

As they saying goes:
Pimpin' aint eazy.
But just keep swimming,
just keep swimming,
and life was but a dream. 
Naw mean, bra?

From the 2013 NYC Armory Show
Having one of those 
I wish I could just disappear

On the bright side,
next week we head to Tokyo and Taipei!

Worrying Is for Wusses.
Make that sign, art guy,
so I can put it next to my
Hang in There cat poster.

Fresh Direct Bluenanas Are in Season!

Jon and I ordered a few bunches
of these new bluenanas
before they ran out.
As a blue food they're supposedly
very high in antioxidants
and very good for memory, diabetes, and everything.

I also read that even though the plant
is carnivorous, 
it only eats Smurfs,
so humans wandering 
through a bluenana grove
are safe, 
and it helps keep the Smurf population down, 

But in all actuality,
Jon was pretty excited about this
until he realized it was a joke.
I'd warned him this morning not to be fooled too!
Now he's a bit disappointed.
If bluenanas tasted anything
like bananas and blueberries,
I'd be very disappointed they didn't actually exist too,
but who knows, man?!
Who knows?!
