my nemesis, my love

given that my husband often goes by the alias "William D. Badger" and hails from Wisconsin, the Badger State, this makes me really nervous...

Your poetry
which I already emailed you about, but you probably weren't at work by then ... No, I haven't seen anything like it, and I don't have a problem with "Grinning maniacally" or "Tweedledum tweedledee" as opening lines, even if they're not formally correct (and I don't know the form enough to say for sure that they're not). And I liked the one you sent.

thanks!
it won't let me post!! i'm trying again...

i did miss your other email :)
if i deviate MORE from the format i can do something like

Alice in Wonderland
fed up with lunacy
looked quite (?) askance as (when?) the
cat did appear

grinning manaically
purred he, "that's unfortunate
for catagorically
we're all mad here"

:) i like it better BUT no nonsense opening, no double dactyl in the second verse. alas... with prepping for the tea party i haven't had time to think to much about it.

plus i can't spell askance and i think i'm using it improperly...

Re: thanks!
I like it too. I think you usually look askance "at" things, but again, poetry is about being flexible within structure and all that (but "when" works better than "as").

Magic and Malice!!!
i absolutely LOVED the Magic and Malice books!! i read them both today in one sitting. (well, i stopped for lunch and for dinner and to do load of dishes and to take a shower and to check my email/LJ Friends List - but otherwise in one sitting ;)

have you ever read any books by Madeleine Brent? that's kind of what these put me in mind of. Especially Stranger At Wildings since the heroine was an outsider with "unusual" talents making it in proper English society. (Circus performer vs street theif, but still...) Or Moonrakers Bride.

Regardless they were BOTH great stories and likeable characters in their own right that had the added pleasure of bringing back fond memories of books I'd read as a young lady.

i forget, are you coming up tomorrow? help me remember to return the book to you.
loves!!!

Re: Magic and Malice!!!
So glad you liked 'em. No, I won't be up this Tuesday or next alas, but I'm sure the book will be safe until I see you again :).

Let me know if you enjoy Triplets of Bellville, John said you'd probably watch that tonight.

Re: Magic and Malice!!!
i know i already emailed you the fact we loved the movie BUT to show how much, i thought i'd share the icon i made for it. plus, LittleLadyLibra put out a bulletin about it on myspace with a clip of one of the songs from YouTube :)

No, I haven't read Madeleine Brent, I'm afraid.
