I’ve had no time to post, though in general I’ve been in a much better mood. My life, typically, is still in a state of constant upheaval (when, I wonder, does it get simple? Oh, right, when they shovel dirt over my face.)

So here’s something silly meantime, ’til I get time to put virtual pen to virtual paper and produce something virtually interesting.

This is old. But my kids are walkiing around singing it – and they know all the goddamn words so I had to look it up.

You have to watch this first, then you can read the words, which are almost brilliantly surreal.

Thus – The Llama Song

Ok, now you can read the words.


here’s a llama
there’s a llama
and another little llama
fuzzy llama
funny llama
llama llama
duck

llama llama
cheesecake
llama
tablet
brick
potato
llama
llama llama
mushroom
llama
llama llama
duck

i was once a treehouse
i lived in a cake
but i never saw the way
the orange slayed the rake
i was only three years dead
but it told a tale
and now listen, little child
to the safety rail

did you ever see a llama
kiss a llama
on the llama
llama’s llama
tastes of llama
llama llama
duck

half a llama
twice the llama
not a llama
farmer
llama
llama in a car
alarm a llama
llama
duck

is THIS how it’s told now?
is it all so old?
is it made of lemon juice?
doorknob
ankle
cold
now my song is getting thin
i’ve run out of luck
time for me to retire now
and become a duck

    And this is how it goes. I know a song that…” (repeat endlessly…)

    Yeah that’s kinda cute and I had to kill it to get back here! But I’m a preschool teacher and it’s just the kinda thing I actually love! *Tears in my eyes from laughing*
