Today VS Childhood

Then today, I was inspired to start quoting this to people who probably won’t know what the hell I was talking about;


Heffalumps and Woozles
From:  Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

They’re black they’re brown they’re up their down
They’re in they’re out they’re all about
They’re far they’re near they’re gone they’re here
They’re quick and slick and insincere
Beware Beware Be a very wary bear
A Heffalump or Woozle is very confusel
The Heffalump or woosel is very sly
– sly – sly – sly
They come in ones and twoosels
but if they so choosels
before your eyes you’ll see them multiply
– ply – ply – ply
They’re extra-ordinary so better be wary
Because they come in every shape and size
– size – size – size
If honey is what you covet you’ll find that they love it
Because they guzzle up the thing you prize
They’re green they’re blue they’re pink they’re white
They’re round they’re square they’re a terrible sight
They tie themselves in horrible knots
They come in stripes or polka-dots
Beware Beware Be a very wary bear
{musical interlude}
They’re extra-ordinary so better be wary
Because they come in every shape and size
– size – size – size
If honey’s what you covet you’ll find that they love it
Because they guzzle up the things you prize
They’re black they’re brown they’re up their down
They’re in they’re out they’re all about
They’re far they’re near they’re gone they’re here
They’re quick and slick and insincere
Beware Beware Beware Beware Beware ….

I was always scared of the Heffalumps and Woozles. Then I grew up. So, you see. I’ve been pretty nestalgic lately!

Yesterday VS Childhood

Alright. So the weather outside inspired me to put a post from “Winnie The Pooh and the Blustery Day” on Facebook. To my surprise, most of my family joined in. This is what we were referencing;

The Rain Rain Rain Came Down Down Down
From:  Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

[Chorus:]
The rain rain rain came down down down
in rushing rising rivlets
Till the river crept out of its bed
and crept right into Piglet’s
For Piglet he was frightened with quite a rightful fright
[Men:]
And so in desparation a message he did write
[PIGLET]  
Help!
P-P-Piglet
Me!
[Women:]
He placed it in a bottle and it floated out of sight
[Chorus:]
And the rain rain rain came down down down
so Piglet started bailing
[Men:]
He was unaware atop his chair
while bailing he was sailing
[Women:]
And the rain rain rain came down down down
and the flood rose up-up-upper
[Chorus:]
Pooh too was caught and so he thought
[Pooh:]
I must rescue my supper
[Chorus:]
Ten honey pots he rescued enough to see him through
But as he sopped up his supper
The river sopped up Pooh
[Men:]
And the water twirled and tossed him
In a honey pot
[Chorus:]
… rain rain rain came down down down
when the rain rain rain came down down down … (fade)

Album Review

Hey Everyone.
I’ve been listening to a lot of local bands lately, but I figure it’s a good thing to promote this particular one. To be honest, the reason I want to talk about this one, is because my first grade teacher’s son is in “A Drifting Karma.” Their new album “Left To Lose” just recently came out. It’s absolutely worth the money you would spend on itunes to purchase it!!!!!
So, get on it!!!

Stupid Wake-Up Calls

Dear Stupid Telemarketing Company,
No, we will NOT admit to being home when you called us at 8 AM this morning. No, we will NOT admit to being home when you called at 8:30. No, I will not be picking up my cellphone if you don’t allow it to ring on my end. All you’ve done this morning by calling twice before 10 AM has made the anti-morning people in this household pissed off and cranky on your ass. Thanks Assholes. Thanks for being the inconsiderate assholes that you are. Now, just bite me.
Sincerely,
One Very Pissed-Off Wiccian
