hilarity ensues.

Once upon a time, in a small kingdom known as the UMBC dining hall, the Wood food company got something right. This something was known as potato soup. It was right tasty. This achievement served as a muse to me on three occasions, with the results being three silly little poems that were at various times posted on the message board in the dining room.

I'd forgotten about my culinarily-inspired works until running across them just now on my friend Phil's webpage.



poem the first:
Ode to Potato Soup
------------------

Potato soup, I sing of thee.
You make me smile gidd-i-ly.
Your nice potato-y aroma
Reminds me of my blessed home-a.
Come back to my bowl again,
My brothy, starchy, soupy friend.


poem the second:
Potato Soup
-----------

You may have your chicken soup
And your chunky soup of tomato
But to me the king of soups
Is that called Cream of Potato.
Pizza may be full of grease.
Lettuce leaves may droop.
Sadwiches are uninspired.
Long live Potato Soup!


poem the last:
Words of Wisdom
---------------

When I went off to college,
To this illustrious school,
My Mother gave me good advice:
"Obey the Golden Rule."
"Never spit into the wind."
"Don't swim in shark-filled tanks."
But most of all for this advice
To Mother I give thanks.
She said:
"Always Eat your Potato Soup!"
and I do.




In other news, Dave III made me laugh hysterically today. I had completely forgotten about the cinema masterpiece that was Capital R (1998). The story of a letter. And a rabid dog. "He's not lowercase, baby!" Let me just tell you, that little text message on my phone, added to the excitement of a phone call from Laura (even with the three disconnections), made for a great improvement to a day that had up till them been extremely dull.

I like my friends.
