Happy Birthday EE!

Two years already, my how times flies when you're having fun.

Ode to an Evil Editor

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That surfs on high o'er net and web
When all at once I saw a crowd*
A host of giggling minionettes**
A single blog had pulled the folk
All filled with laughter by one bloke***

The blogs beside him danced, but he
Outdid the sparkling wits in glee
A writer could scrawl quite happily
In such laughing company
I gazed - and gazed - but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought

For oft when at my keys I sigh
In vacant or in pensive mood
He flashes upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude
And then my heart with pleasure fills
For love of Evil Editor's skills

* poetic licence, actually it was the late, great Miss Snark that sent me your way
** poetic licence, I think at that point there were about ten
*** no more poetic licence, it was fun from the start baby!

NEVER RETIRE!

McK - I'm too fried to send tonight, honey. Can I send tomorrow, while you're sleeping please?

I'll be able to finish the things I need to do during lunch.

I really appreciate you doing this.
As you can see, I've used EE's party to procratinate EVEN more. So I need you doing this, to help me through. And I really do love ya for it.
