Cointest across the globe

New hour, so something new.


Got this from an AP article about Mars and it's brightness on Christmas Eve. (Follows the tune of Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer)


Mars is a red-tinged planet


With a very shiny glow


And if you look to see it


You will find the moon in tow.


All of the other Yuletides


Santa would have at his side


The shiny nose of Rudolph


Acting as his big sleigh's guide


But this very Christmas Eve


Santa came to say:


"Rudolph, now with Mars so bright,


You can stay at home tonight."


Then all the reindeer teased him.


And they shouted out with glee:


"Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer


Outsourced to astronomy."

Another hourly post :P


Twas The Month After Christmas

Twas the month after Christmas and all through the house

Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.


The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.

All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.


When I got on the scales there arose such a number!

When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).


I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;

The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,


The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese

And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."


As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt

And prepared once again to do battle with dirt---


I said to myself, as I only can

"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"


So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,

Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip


Every last bit of food that I like must be banished

Till all the additional ounces have vanished.


I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.

I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.


I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,

I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.


I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore---

But isn't that what January is for?


Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.

Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
