can't make it to Saturday's Tea Time (not even as the
usual spectator). I will catch up with Tea Time--and my
fellow co-conspirators--later in the weekend (FP, will
you please post the reference to Saturday's Tea Time in
the index? Thanks.).
All of you have a fruitful and
inspired Saturday. I am off to meet with Neptune. May I
remain immune to the songs of the sirenes.. and the
unpleasant effects of sea-sickness!
FP: I composed
this little sonnet in French "alexandrins" (6/6; 6/6;
etc.) about Tea Time. Will your chip ("BF"?) handle it?
Hey, YOU asked for it!

I must apologise for
not informing you earlier about my absence for the past
two days. I was working and since I am a procrastinator,
I did not give myself the time to give you some notice.
I will also be working tomorrow and then I have dinner
plans with family, so again I'll be absent. Plus, due to
my new job and the new responsibilities that come with
it, I may not be here as often as I'd like to for a few
weeks, but I will try to make time for Tea Time. Until
the next time we meet, I bid you
sneaking back in...

Please do get some
sleep tomorrow. Most Tea Timers are off anyway. I mean,
even God rested on Sunday...
I'll work on some more
French versification and may even go for an EOTD next
time. BTW, I did not keep the reference of the Corkboard
in which I posted my first versification attempt (let's
call it: "les victimes s'organisent"). Do you have that
tid#? I am curious to pass it through BF.
AND IT'S SUNDAY IN SANTA MONICA

And there goes SL
"sneaking" in here just one moment before.
Thanks for the Fee-back. <g> The
straight-story-line haiku's are of
course a different
matter than the sonnets . . . but, yes. they're
for training in compression.
When you wrote your verse in French . . . I was AMAZED
how "well" the automatic translation works. I'm
you may not feel the same . . . but I
thought what came out
of babblefish was very poetic.
(Rhythm and alliteration of course
aren't there . . .
but, stiil, DO WRITE MORE FRENCH VERSE if you
like it. The quality of your ideas will shine through
(and may inspire me to learn French).
Time to do some some administrative
work (compress the index),
and ponder the lessons of
I've written so many sonnets so fast
(smile & groan) that I may
off from rhetorical versing . . . sleep a few more
I'll watch the next Buffy episode and see if
it inspires me. <smile>

I am glad you got some
sleep. You always have to listen to your ...
And here is some "fee-back" from a specialist
of the "fee" (the higher, the better!): Liked the haiku
today. Very different feeling than reading a sonnet; it
did work well for that episode. Actually I have a
question re: haikus. Other than the 5/7/5 rule, are
there any other rules applicable?
PS: Do I have to
say it? Yes you were right; just using haikus has forced
me to be more concise and go to the point. Next step:
the rhetorical sonnet in IP (or BV if I can't get a hold
of a rhyming dictionary by then).
And no, FP doesn't want some "FEE-BACK" .
. . but some FEEDBACK
