08:50 am: Father and Song

When John was young, his father played the ukulele and sang songs John thought his dad had written, but which turned out to merely be old favorites (such as "Seven Old Ladies Stuck In A Lavatory." ) 

The opposite has happened to my kids. John has made up additional lyrics to songs that my kids have no idea are not part of the original. (Such as "he bumped his knee and went to tea" as a second verse for "It's raining, its pouring, the old man is snoring.")


On a completely different note, I just got to use the phrase: "I saw the mouse's pants go by."  How often do you get to say something like that?

Er... never! Sounds like a lively conversation.

I could explain but it would take many more words than it is worth, and it wouldn't be as bizzare anymore.

Your LJ is the only hit for that phrase on all the web.

Oh that's funny! Too bad there's no way to capitalize upon that!

I made Bunnybright a book that includes most of the made-up verses to our songs--at least the first year's worth.

Dean's really good at coming up with new lyrics, though I shudder to think what will happen if the Mite repeats some of them in school... particularly the variation on "que sera sera"

Hi! I couldn't find an email contact for you, but I wanted to be sure to thank you for being such a great panelist at Philcon this past weekend on The Lady in the Fridge panel that I moderated. I was also going to ask you what the next con you plan to attend would be. The reason I ask is because I sometimes I work with different cons on their panel scheduling and it is always good to know smart people to add to the list of people that I can pull from.

I will be writing my Philcon con report and I wanted to link you to give you some traffic, but I am not sure if you have a website yet for that. Please let me know what you feel best represents you if you would like a link. :)

Also, let me know if it's OK that I friend you...I know some people only want their personal friends to friend them, so I don't assume it's OK to just friend someone. Regardless, thank you again. You had some very good things to say.

Hey!

Cool!

Yes, that was a great panel. I really enjoyed it. You were great fun to be on a panel with! I found your comments about self-defense quite inspiring! ;-)

I'll be at Balticon and Ravencon next year. Once my novel is actually out, in 2009, we'll probably hit a few more cons again, but 2008,'s likely to be just those two.

My website is: http://www.sff.net/people/lamplighter/

But, it's not in very good shape. I haven't really done much with it. However, if you want to write me directly, you can go here:

and click on Miss Miranda...that will bring up an email form with an address.

As to friending, by all means! That would be great!
