To Own a Jabberwocky

I think WFDHAM's reign is over.  I need to write more and I needed a new blog, a new start and I'm trying on Alice for size.  She's got smashing curly hair, doesn't really know who she is (at the BEGINNING anyway).  And prompts quotes from the Queen like "Use the curtains if you have to.. .please clothe this enormous girl".  I feel you Alice.  I also know the joy of eating one thing that makes you expand and other things that make you contract.

I unfortunatly gave up making fun of myself long ago.  So I have to take that height joke back.  But since it's celebratory in nature and Alice does indeed slay the Jabberwocky even though she didn't know she could...I will adopt all parallels to this strange and beautiful story.

I also have adopted a new template.  Called "Lefty Stretch" which also smacked of 'me-ness'.  Left handed and stretchy.

So the expanded quote that frames the new blog title is this deliciously weird quote that also makes me think of my golf game. (Even though I knows it's really croquet).

"The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo: she succeeded in getting its body tucked away, comfortably enough, under her arm, with its legs hanging down, but generally, just as she had got its neck nicely straightened out, and was going to give the hedgehog a blow with its head, it would twist itself round and look up in her face, with such a puzzled expression that she could not help bursting out laughing: and when she had got its head down, and was going to begin again, it was very provoking to find that the hedgehog had unrolled itself, and was in the act of crawling away: besides all this, there was generally a ridge or furrow in the way wherever she wanted to send the hedgehog to, and, as the doubled-up soldiers were always getting up and walking off to other parts of the ground, Alice soon came to the conclusion that it was a very difficult game indeed."

Blast from the Past.

There we go... a little bit of Love for WU. 

Some TV Love.
And some more.

Relax.  I know I'm a has been.  Perhaps a "never was".   Not really even a major factor in any of this stuff when it was happening.  It's just fun for me to talk about and fun to see my fellow alumni in the media.    The historic TV footage of me often included me commiting turnovers that made highlight reels of opposing teams :).
