Flanders and Swann introduced me to the romantic melody with The Hippopotamus Song. Too young to grasp the nuances of romantic entanglements, I would sit mesmerised; listen to the airplay on the radio and repeat the chorus to an annoying degree. Five years old and all I could remember was the chorus. I probably drove my mother mad with it!
Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me, follow / down to the hollow
And there let us wallow in glorious mud
The love song of the hippopotami and the wooing of his fair hippopota-maid, playing on her innocence and naivety to encourage her to spend languorous hours in the water, His melodious tones rising from the river to her ears, and drawing her closer; follow me, follow...
Reminded me of the chirp of the little blue bird on the Internet; follow me, follow me back, and it's often about knowing where to look
You can find me

the mud thing's not really necessary,
Unless...no, better not go there!

"Throwing spaghetti at the wall," ark Coker made the comment in a conversation on Late Night Library, and as such a brilliant description it stayed with me, the red glutinous mass, straggling strands of pasta slowly pulling and sliding down the wallpaper before the whole lot comes off and hits the ground with a squidgy splat.

January already kicked into touch, the march of crossed out days snaking across the calendar into February, Candlemas, Groundhog day gone already and the meteorological prognostications made for the next six weeks, and before we know it the march of time will have reached - March!
By virtue of an Order by the 41st Parliament of Canada, First Session, Motion M-293 was passed asking that the month of March be declared Read an E-BookMonth.
The Order reads:
