It's too chilly out here.
In the warm, could it be my turn with the kitchen knife?
What about the Burgundy spear?
You'll have to settle for old home cooking.
For lack of a grande cuisine, I've done some the new way.
Sound food for a special mind is also excellent for the digestion, Ellie, as long as you leave the braincells out of it. I did.
There's just one problem.
Have you got a highly faithful music system and even a spare couple of hours?
Oh, yes, that business on the front page of the blog?
Well, you were asking for it, that's all I have to say. Excuses, excuses...
To my subsequent horror. O my God, she'll get me wrong. Eeek! See, I shouldn't have looked at the sky.
Here's friendly, normal me, quiet in my corner, all set for the easy life, recovering from half a dozen quantum jumps.
And there's my favourite white-tailed eagle, but oh dear...
I daren't mention it. Just as you take off the winged shoes for a week or three, who comes knocking on your door. Pluto himself, straight out of the shadows, larger than life. Do you want to know more?
I'm glad the White Goddess came along with him.
He swung by to pick up Venus as well as Saturn. Had he forgotten, I'd be in such deep trouble with Ellie the dark, El the peeved, Milady hard to get.
I've had my 'Revolution', love, so I hate to say it, but there's a storm on your own horizon. How do I know? I couldn't resist a peek when I was doing a chart for my friend the Squip in New York.
We're both still here, that's the main thing, and a quick kiss on the 1st will put a "rare and exclusive" seal on the affair.
But I told you. It's not words from me you need now, more the rest.
If you're going to peek yourself when it comes to the soup, oh well...
The hand in the dark. Metaphorically speaking?
Oh yeah ... of course!
I'd rather you didn't.
After all, it takes a while to tell a good story, even when other voices help you.
Two stories? Or one?
But if you've got the magnifying glass and the ears, I'll give you the cheat sheet too.
There's only one really mean trick in the whole caboodle, but hey honeypie, you're the one with the sting in the tail this month.
In case of emergency, you read the rest. But give me time to run away first and fast...
