"Meat" your date, Use plenty of deodorant.

Yes, it was a zombie Valentine,
With curses flowing like wine.
I loved my date tenderly,
Until she pulled a shotgun on me.

I gave her roses, long of stem,
and chocolate, dark and sweet.
Prostrate, I grovelled at her feet.
She did not give a damn.

She broke up with me at recess. I worked so hard - it was so good, my valentine. The coronary artery was perfectly to scale.

"This song is what I imagine cancer sounds like." I said, as the bar went silent and everyone turned to stare. Awkward...

Arcade fire won, Bieber performed. It was a decidedly mixed bag...

The shadows danced on the cream paper, strange tentacled images growing and warping. Weirdest light puppet show ever.

A slightly less direction-less offering today, for the penultimate day of my personal goal:

I consider myself a polite neighbour, for a mad scientist. For example, I don't storm your abode at unreasonable hours.

Alas, I fell at the last hurdle. I visited the pub, and so all I can produce is this poor excuse, masquerading as a twabble.

There is a god! Turns out that Leigh Mercer's brilliant limerick fits perfectly in twabble form:


A dozen, a gross, and a score,
Plus 3 times the square root of 4.
Divided by 7,
Plus 5 times 11,
Is 9 squared and not a bit more.

Well, even though I completed my weeks challenge (albeit with one blip) I think I'm going to try and keep up one twabble a day for as long as I can, since I actually really enjoyed it :)

"Try to kill me, would she? I'll show her!" he cackled as he grabbed the knife. Giggling, he thrust it deep into his heart.
