Magpie 32.5

Okay- I know I already posted....
but I cannot help myself! I was having
problems sleeping last night and
entertained myself by making these up
while trying to snooze....
The photos were taken in my little crafty room-
not set up- just the silly stuff that always surrounds me...



Have you ever
Overslept and woke
Under the covers alarmed
Racing to get ready
Gritting your teeth as you
Lose your composure
And miss the last bus
Stomping back to your house
Sighing as you call your boss ?

There once was a lass from Mexico
Who drove the only bus to Texico
She was always late
Made us all wait
So we bought her a giant Rolexio

Oh yes, while living in Portland I missed that Hawthorne bus many times!

Fun stuff.

I'm always late myself...maybe I need one of those giant Rolexios.

What fun -- I find that if I do something creative when I can't sleep, it helps.
