February’s White Rabbit

HAPPY FEBRUARY!!!

This white rabbit is tinged in grey as it is sitting under a huge grey cloud (not depicted!). February is the month where the dreadful Valentine’s Day crops up; long-time visitors will remember that I’m not too keen on this, ahem, celebration, and instead convert it to another version of Hallowe’en. This year, I’m not dwelling on it here on Beyond the Sphere. Oh no, I’m dwelling on it over on my other blog, Splodge and Splatter, instead. This white rabbit shows its true colours over there.

Valentine’s Day aside, Happy February! And WHITE RABBITS.

Vampyre’s Day–what we know so far

As Vampyre’s Day draws closer, ever closer, reports are emerging of:

Love birds fighting;
Mail being intercepted by carrier pigeon;
Red roses suddenly turning black;
My true love sending only one turtle dove on the second;
Heart-shaped chocolates being made with a harsh, sharp edge;
A million love songs being replaced by an odd grunge/swing combo;
Humbug sales on the increase;
Cute Vampyre Bunnies rampaging amok, everywhere;
Weeping statues suddenly starting to smile;
The Argentine Tango now including five different Charleston steps;
Dating websites now getting a ‘swipe up’ option indicating, presumably, ‘get me off this planet’;
Seasonal card manufacturers slicing their prices by ninety per cent;
Cheese replacing oysters as a favourite aphrodisiac, due to the latter’s emerging vampiric tendencies;
The Love Bug movie being remade featuring a clapped-out tractor in the title role;
Aphrodite’s Moon, the THIRD Full Moon of January being covered by cloud, WORLDWIDE, and missed by everyone.

These developments are ongoing. Perhaps you have noticed something untoward – something not quite as it should be – taking place in the run up to Vampyre’s Day (February 14th). If so, let us know in the comments below.

Further updates will appear here as and when they come to light…


White Rabbit on a Bed of Lettuce

Don’t let the cute fluffiness fool ya!

They do that, these cute creatures of the night. They lull you into a false sense of security so that you have to hold them and cuddle them and smooch with them and tell them – well, tell them anything really – it’s between you and them. And then, after all that… and then… and then they get you. By the jugular!

Vampyre Bunnies are everywhere this February. Between now and the Fourteenth – Vampyre’s Day – keep your eyes peeled – or else they will be on to you.

I can’t believe it.

February already.

The signs, though, are starting to appear.

White Rabbits for February! The nice ones, mind.


 

Wordle: Not So Sweet Valentine

My Valentine,
Sweet Valentine,
Sing me a song with such sweet rhythms,
And not, Valentine,
Sweet Valentine,
Your unusual melody cataclysms.
Dear Valentine,
My Valentine,
Face the challenge head on if you will,
Oh Valentine,
Sweet Valentine,
Could you also sing less shrill.
My Valentine,
Sweet Valentine,
Sit upright upon the stool,
Because Valentine,
Dear Valentine,
When you slouch you look a fool.
My Valentine,
Sweet Valentine,
Half of your notes are alright,
But Valentine,
Dear Valentine,
The others are a fright.
So Valentine,
My Valentine,
Forgive me when I say
It’s you, Valentine,
Not me, Valentine,
That makes me feel this way,
Dear Valentine,
My Valentine,
Change that rag you wear so well,
And Valentine,
Oh, Valentine,
Help me to escape this hell.
Dear Valentine,
My Valentine,
Please say a resounding yes,
And Valentine,
My Valentine,
This is just the root of this mess.
Dear Valentine,
My Valentine,
Do forgive me when I say,
It’s you, Valentine,
Not me, Valentine,
So why do I always have to pay?
