mommy can i go outside and play?
birds are singing such a lovely day
and i can't wait until my work is done
oh for one bright moment in the sun
every bird must wing and sing its song
once twice again and then it's gone

mommy it was such a lovely day
the birds were singing then it slipped away
the birds were singing then they flew away

new blog

I don't know what the point of this blog is; the title just came to me last night and I thought it would be a good way to annoy a friend of mine.

Is it possible to have too many pointless blogs in the world? If so, we must be getting close.

Here's my little contribution to the pursuit of critical mass.
