No Shrinking Violet!

You know how it is when your day is dragging and you're dying for an instant pick-me-up, well Ladies and Gentlemen, i have found it in the form of Violet Moyo. She is a budding star within the Zim community, with her inspiring cover versions of songs like "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley and "Overprotected" by Britney Spears, its only a matter of time before she takes the world by storm!

The first time i heard her i nearly pee'd myself with laughter! Think i'm exaggerating, go and check out her site for yourself and listen to her songs;

Once you've checked out her beats, give her some feedback by signing in her guestbook at;

Otherwise my day has been pretty cool! I played hooky with a friend of mine for an hour, twas great living on the wrong side of the law (i must get out more often!). I felt so bad about leaving my colleagues in the lurch for all of 60mins i brought them donuts and was then crowned "Queen for the Day"! This friend of mine and i share a common interest in TS Eliot, they go a step further and can actually recite chunks of it (show off). Anywho, i just wanted to share one of my favourite poet's take on TS Eliot's "The Wasteland, Enjoy!

Waste Land Limericks: Wendy Cope

In April one seldom feels cheerful;
Dry stones, sun and dust make me fearful;
Clairvoyantes distress me,
Commuters depress me–
Met Stetson and gave him an earful.

She sat on a mighty fine chair,
Sparks flew as she tidied her hair;
She asks many questions,I make few suggestions–
Bad as Albert and Lil–what a pair!

The Thames runs, bones rattle, rats creep;
Tiresias fancies a peep–A typist is laid,
A record is played–Wei la la.
After this it gets deep.

A Phoenician named Phlebas forgot
About birds and his business–the lot,
Which is no surprise,
Since he’d met his demise
And been left in the ocean to rot.

No water.
Dry rocks and dry throats,
Then thunder, a shower of quotes
From the Sanskrit and Dante.
Da. Damyata. Shantih.
I hope you’ll make sense of the notes.
