Jeff

cg, thanks for the great comment! You rock!

Okay, tell me, spankings? Hints? Anything at all?

Either way, that's some ass! Have a great party, you deserve it.

Viviane

Darling, the day was almost over but I did not want it to pass without wishing you a marvelous blogday! And Madeline sends her best, too. See you soon.

Happy blogday Mrs. Dumplins.
Happy Blogday to you.

Love you bunches!
And those dumplins too.
Yum!

Happy Blogday, darling! I'm so pleased you're pleased by my sonnet. It was *your* brilliant line that begged for a sonnet to sit upon like a little crown, I just tried to give it something warm and willing to perch on... Everyone's blogday gifts are so lovely, you must have that Christmas-morning-sitting-in-a-pile-of-wrapping-paper glow. But it's your own Pretty Dumb Things that's the real gift, the gift of a little of your heart and soul to us. So here's my Happy Blogday wish to all of us who love you: May every day be a Chelsea Girl day!

Just so you know, I wrote the lyrics back on Valentine's Day. And I haven't actually seen your ass (a*hem!*) but there's just something about your blog photo with your sweetly rounded hips and your long legs with one cocked back behind you like that... Anyway, I see that photo every day and back while I was thinking about the origin of the "heart" shape of valentines I went a little further and imagined what your upturned ass would look like... and a few minutes later while I was composing the post out came the words.

If I'd known I might have added "bend over" and "open your mouth." :-)

Take care,

Quite an achievement ! Happy Blogversary CG !! Anything left on your wishlist ? Hugs - A

Phil

I'm glad you liked my 'gorgeous manmeat', what a compliment ;)

Jeff, yes! That is some ass! It brings to mind all kinds of naughty sweaty thoughts. The woman in front of the behind is yet more spectacular, but I still shan't tell you who it is.

Viviane, thank you. You are the swellest.

DQ, that's Ms Dumpling. Not Mrs. I've never been a bride, and I've only once been a bridesmaid. You never know, though, it could happen....thank you for the marilinious melody.

Ravenna, this mutual admiration society will make others think we're in love.

Fig, that my unseen ass could inspire such lyrics is all that I need to know. Perhaps in the full-length version you can include "Bend over," "Open your mouth," and "Take it like a good girl."

Aragorn, only you and your accessorized Johnson.

And Phil, you are most welcome. I am most pleased.

Kisses to all,

Sorry I missed the party last night, but I hope you liked your gift. :) sounds like you had a great time.

I do want to apologize for not being a regular commentor, but I have been a regular reader, so I promise to do better on the other and continue with the first. Does that make any sense?

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

I only wish I had had more sense and more time in order to gift you with something so special. Chelsea Girl, you are a doll, an urban angel, an inspiration, a lovely gal that I am happy to know. You've taught me loads this last year including how not to be afraid of anal sex (yes we've had it happily) and of subspace (love going there now) and Gander's even more eager to have a professional dance for him. You've been a real peach and I only wish we could bite into you and feel your sweet juices running down our chins!

Gosh, thank you all so much for coming and partaying with me here on my pretty dumb things. I feel so completely fêted. It's fabulous.

Now, time to clean up the confetti, condoms and champagne....

Pussy Talk

Not meaning to rain on this wonderful birthday parade---congratulations, CG chick!!----yes, Ravenna's poem is lovely and clever and wicked and all that, but forgive my pedantry, boys and grrls: it's not a sonnet.

Yes, it has fourteen lines and an English sonnet rhyme scheme, but fourteen lines ending in a rhyming couplet doth not a sonnet make.

A distinguishing feature of the sonnet form is iambic pentameter, which goes "da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM", with slight variations permitted, of course, if you're Shakespeare, and even that great poet never went so far as to cram his sonnet lines with throngs of anapests.

;)

Pussy Talk

Ooops. I missed a "da DUM". Fark. Hehe.

Of course, a sonnet line goes

"da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM"

Serves me right for tryin' to be smart, huh?

;)

Actually, darling Pussy Talk, those thronging feet are mostly amphibrachs, not anapests, but I am utterly charmed that my little pastiche of a sonnet seems to have sparked a serious discussion of sonnetry! And you are most welcome to spank my little sonnet for its iambic deficiency, I'm always up for a good spanking, whatever the excuse...

I scan the thing as 54 amphibrachs and 12 iambs and only 4 anapests. (If you try to scan it all anapestically, lines 1 and 14 carry a spare unstressed syllable which accounts for itself neatly in amphibrachs.) And the dominant rhythm of the whole thing is that galumphing ker-THUMP-uh of amphibrachs, which derives from that brilliantly zingy dactylic-anapestic line I borrowed from Chelsea Girl for my theme and music, and my capstone line. (Throw an unstressed syllable in front of a line of dactyls and they transform nicely into amphibrachs.)

Quite true that most English sonnets bump along mainly in that lovely iambic ker-THUMP ker-THUMP, Shakespeare most relentlessly of all, but the sonnet is a vigorous and various little beast which has survived all sorts of rhythm and rhyme schemes, even such assaults as tetrameter and violations of the sacred Fourteen and Gerard Manley Hopkins. It often finds its iambic corners stuffed full of trochees and dactyls, amphibrachs and anapests, even a one-two, pyrrhic-spondaic punch at the hands of my favorite soneteer, Donne: "At the round earth's imagined corners, blow..." So it may survive my shameless abuse too.

I'll close with the immortal words of the great poet Popeye: "Iamb what Iamb" (a line which is in fact an amphibrach and an iamb)...

I think I'm in love.

O

Me too.
