Let the Great Limerick Begin

Today is my birthday! And since I’m the same age as the site, I’ve now posted the beginnings of my 43 Things. It is still a work in progress.

I had a super stupendous weekend. On Friday at 7:30 pm my dear sweetest of all husbands told me that I had to go to the airport to pick up my dear friend Silvie whom he’d flown in from Los Angeles unbeknownst to me. Well, he didn’t do the flying himself, but he did purchase the ticket.

We spent the next day gallivanting around Vancouver, shopping, taking in some paralympic sights, eating cupcakes, and as is tradition with us, getting caught in a rainstorm.

I also bought my first pair of Fluevogs.

Well, the Grand Day Out could be a post all on its own. Suffice to say it was glorrrrrrrious.

But now, let’s move on to what has become my favourite annual tradition. To celebrate my birthday here, I would like a bevy of limericks to appear in the comments. Extra points if you use any word that appears in the 100 most Beautiful Words in the English Language (my vote is for ‘dulcet’).

Keep it PG.

AND…(Wait there’s more)

since my bjournal now has ratings, the highest rated entry will share in my birthday and get a little present from me. It will not be Fluevogs. Sorry.

Let the Great Limerick of 2010 begin!

About Tentative Equinox North

I live in small town mortgaged suburbia and commute a long ways to work as an arts administrator in a biggish city in the Great White North. I have one husband, three kids (1 girl and 2 boys), and one very enthusiastic Labrador-Retriever cross with Marley-ish tendencies. These are the things I tend to write about (not to be considered an exhaustive or otherwise limiting list): parenting and in particular parenting kids with brain challenges (learning disabilities, ADHD, and aspergers), the arts, particularly the performing arts, the weirdness of life and human behaviour, my conspiracy theory that we actually live in a Matrix-world (don't even bother trying to tell me we don't), and really, anything shiny.

    Having NEVER written a Limerick this could be ugly…but since it is your birthday, here is my best shot.

    A birthday present hidden in a box
    Can be as exciting as raiding Fort Knox
    But this present is fun
    And not without a pun
    Since it is posted on Tentative Equinox.

    Happy Birthday! Yay for the day you were born!

    I’ve got some writing projects on my desk this morning, but I’ll ponder the limerick challenge and maybe I’ll get back to you!

    This ingénue, gives to her dear, dulcet and comely sister
    A lagniappe (a labyrinth, if you will) of words, demure.
    A scintilla, perhaps desultory
    Though imbued with affection and loverly’s.
    The Halcyon Birthday belongs to my fetching… elixir?

  4. I was going to take a stab at a limerick, but made the mistake of reading Sarah’s first.

    …so very much a feeling of insignificance now.

    I think I know 7 of the words Sarah used. I am going to have to look up the rest when my brain is less full.
