So you remember how I said I raised another $1,000 in 6 days? Well, thanks to glasseseater, jeeperstseepers (a THIRD time!), harriettheelf, eponis, bookie85, cerulgalactus, lynevere, roxybisquaint, hackerguitar, debetesse, stephl, enshanam, porpentine, brendalu, sailaweigh, hollypaul96, jenelope, tiggz, rolley2001 (twice!), avipedia (a FOURTH and FIFTH time!), spadada, toughcookie42, vandalisimo, apriljoiex, nitedula (a random reader of cleolinda!), and others, I raised my fourth $1,000 in TWO days and my fifth $1,000 in THREE days, and I'm well on my way to my sixth. My competition for Top Fundraiser is hot on my tail, however, a little over $400 behind me, so I need to keep pushing toward $6,000 if I want to retain my title.
Please donate to 826 Valencia!
Today is the final Limerick Day, meaning that anyone who donates receives a limerick, and $25 or more gets you a hard-to-spell word of your choice incorporated into said limerick. Like so:
Josh, you are clearly no lurdane,And speaking of hard-to-spell words, tomorrow is the Spelling Bee for Cheaters, you guys! I thought it was going to be tough to beat Michael Chabon, but now Adam Savage has a lot of cheating money! I need to practice! Everyone, throw your favorite words at me so I can win this BIG SHINY TROPHY.
As you've given to me the burden
To rhyme syzygy.
I'm a whiz! Uh, gee.
This limerick here is your guerdon.
Current Mood: hungry
Current Music: Stabbing Westward - The Only Thing
Thanks for the reminder, looks like I remembered to sponsor you just in time for the big event!
Throw favourite words at you? I have always been fond of "Discothèque".
ZOMG! Hey! It was you! I didn't know your real name, and I was wondering who just took me past $6,000! Thanks, man! It's definitely limerick time:
The party's at the discothèque.the_partyman
is now a wreck.
He tried to mandango
While dancing fandango
And totally injured his neck.
Aha.. Actually when I was filling out the sponsor form thing I was thinking to myself "I must remember to put a mention in the little message box at the end so that he knows that it is I, The Partyman, who hath donated here"... but evidently there was no little box, so I totally forgot to do the mentioning!
Dude, you totally rock at the limerickage.
WHAT. WHAT ARE YOU SAYING ABOUT MY LIMERICKS. WHAT.
I would have just rhymed the "-ee" part of that word, which I wouldn't consider cheating, but some might.
I prefer polysyllabic rhymes if I can!
In short: NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS, IS IT, FINCHY?
NO. Although I'm not sure how to read your rewrite. I think mine scans just fine!
