      Oh darn am I too late to even be fashionably late, isn’t there even a glass of something left over for me? dammit you bunch of drunks. Ohh at least some vol-au-vents left. ugh broccoli, mackerel and humus, no wonder.

      Anyway didn’t wanna go to your stinking party anyways, Hall & Oats, Kraftwerk?!! yuck. Give me birthday girl Billie Holiday anyday

      Or even a little Wordsworth

      A musical but melancholy chime,
      Which they can hear who meddle not with crime,
      Nor avarice, nor over-anxious care.
      Truth fails not; but her outward forms that bear
      The longest date do melt like frosty rime,
