Default Hooray for a Meeting of Minds

Hooray for M-O-M!
That horsy, Pern-of-coursey M-O-M!
Where any crispy C_ris
Or foreign Granath
can make a planath
Or ride on a dragon's neck
And any Shelly
Can wear a welly
As she posts here with or without a cheque
Hooray for M-O-M!
With threads prolific
if you're name is Ghyle!
Where anyone at all from Hans to Cheryl
to Larries feral
is easily made to smile
Come on and beat your chest
You could be Bats at best
Hooray for M-O-M!

Looks like a post count party to me, but the confetti is great.

Roll in a cart full of barrels of Yarran.

Who wants to do the tap?

Nothing like a good old nostalgia party. But here in this bright new world we can start some new "memories," can't we?


May I propose a toast?

To MoM, may it forever prosper!

*hides stash of red wine*

Shan't share!

*prances around Shani, reciting poetry, and broadcasting rose petals in her general direction; sings:*

Who shall my song but play
his heart to ne'er betray,
singing in turn his joy
at love bestowed on boys
come hither, come hither, come hither
for love and kiss
and lovers' bliss
remarked in plays of pleasure.

To men most fair I sing:
I pray to play you bring
your skills in love's byways
as from erotic lays
come hither, come hither, come hither
for love and kiss
and lovers' bliss
remarked in plays of pleasure.

*slips out of the conga to waltz Geisha around the room rather impetuously*

I am in high spirits, dear Geisha, and today is a day enough to have fun, no? Now: can I get a smile from you? You know you look sweeter when you smile, and it would be a joy to allow you this chance to relax, and enjoy the party atmosphere.

Excuse me.

*deposits Geisha's younuns in the creche* Shall I recite a poem to you?

"Dreams", by Victor Daley.

I have been dreaming all a summer day
Of rare and dainty poems I would write;
Love-lyrics delicate as lilac-scent,
Soft idylls woven of wind, and flower, and stream,
And songs and sonnets carven in fine gold.

The day is fading and the dusk is cold;
Out of the skies has gone the opal gleam,
Out of my heart has passed the high intent
Into the shadow of the falling night--
Must all my dreams in darkness pass away?

I have been dreaming all a summer day:
Shall I go dreaming so until Life's light
Fades in Death's dusk, and all my days are spent?
Ah, what am I the dreamer but a dream!
The day is fading and the dusk is cold.

My songs and sonnets carven in fine gold
Have faded from me with the last day-beam
That purple lustre to the sea-line lent,
And flushed the clouds with rose and chrysolite;
So days and dreams in darkness pass away.

I have been dreaming all a summer day
Of songs and sonnets carven in fine gold;
But all my dreams in darkness pass away;
The day is fading and the dusk is cold.
