what a combination

pinch punch, first of the month
a pinch and a kick for being so quick!
a punch in the eye for being so sly!


TGIFriday and/or "POETS" day*
(*piss off early, tomorrow's Saturday)

so, please, do help yourself to the almost obligatory (unless you have a very good excuse) chocolate, popcorn (salted, buttered, sugared - as you like it) from the sidebar, or for those on a diet (that's a good excuse) skip the calories and read a piece of poetry. . .

Being your slave, what should I do but tend
Upon the hours and times of your desire?
I have no precious time at all to spend,
Nor services to do, till you require.
Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour
When you have bid your servant once adieu;
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But, like a sad slave, stay and think of nought
Save, where you are how happy you make those.
So true a fool is love that in your will,
Though you do any thing, he thinks no ill

Oh......if nothing else, I'm rather consistent.

Popcorn, please--buttered and salted, of course.

I have no cholesterol problem to contend with, no high blood pressure--what the heck....LOL LOTS of butter and salt! :-)

Happy first of the month/Friday to you, ma'am!

I, like the view said...

consistent = reliable

I like that!

as much popcorn as you'd like, Ms Mel and a very very happy Friday to you


Steg said...

First of the month? Oh yes......that one had slipped past me, I'm afraid.

I, like the view said...

don't be afraid


Mel said...


Perfect Friday morning--foggy and damp. LOL

But it is Friday! Wooooohooooo!!

Mel said...

I rather like 'poets' day!
I might haffta use that at work today--*snickering*

Of course, the joy in using it is being the only one who knows what it means. ;-)

Meself and my "litte'un" found an old fashioned sweetshop in Stromness yesterday selling big bags of cinder toffee. We had a bag and I thought of you.
