Self-rejection saves me time

Once upon a time,
In a land just down Route One,
There lived a lonely fellow,
Who was searching for someone.The women of his little burg
Had all but let him down,
And so he went online to find
A girl from out of town.Yet much to his dismay
Was he quickly disappointed
To discover a harem of incoherence,
And sentences disjointed.

‘Your’ and ‘you’re’, ‘there’ and ‘their’
Could it be so confusing?
This viral idiosyncrasy
Soon ceased to be amusing.

If one were seeking love,thought he,
Through a beacon of words and pics,
It might pay to at least recall
Those first grade grammar tricks.

Dejected, ready to sign off,
He heaved a sorry sigh.
Then thought, what the bloody hey?
Let’s give this one last try.

And lo! did fortune smile,
For upon that merry day,
He came upon a profile
That made him feel quite gay
(but only in a when-you’re-with-the-Flintstones sort of way.)

A princess from a northward land
Had sent out a proclamation
In which she wittily expressed
Very similar frustration.

A practiced pen was evident
In her so skillfull narration
And he pondered if perhaps ‘Author’
Might be her occupation.

He wanted to know more ’bout her
But the info wasn’t there
So he resolved to send a message
That would catch the maiden’s ear.

Hence this introduction
To the may-be author MoMo,
Here’s hoping she be curious
About the guy called Purpleyoyo.

Have a groovy day,

Well done. I’m positively impressed and that is a rare
occurrence. Also, I see you’re a bike shop owner. Do you have any
pink bikes in stock?Professionally, I am not an author. But, I do write a lot of
nonsense (similar to that found in my profile) on facebook and my

I too was in the market
For a bike of pinkish hue
Unfortunate was I to find
That the following is true:
The only ones that come in pink
Are cruisers for the beach
With big fat saddles and tall bars
For comfort and easy reach.
If that’s your aim and prize
If it’s indeed the ride you seek
I’m sure I could accomodate
Got one in stock, I think.So now it’s time to cease to rhyme
For excess can leave one cold
And we all know that’s not the goal
In this yardsale of souls.I’d very much like to read some more of your nonsense. I can’t say that your profile was very informative, but it was certainly the one of the most entertaining things I’ve read in a while. Where can your blog be found?

Professional problem solver? Shrink, superhero, mathematician, or other?

Hi Momo,Enjoyed reading your blog over dinner tonight. You certainly have a way of turning daily mundanity into compelling reading. Naturally, I particularly enjoyed reading about your 8 mile bike odyssey, and your Scorcese-suffering-from-Tourettes description of all the hillage. Not very eloquent, but entirely accurate.That said, I’m afraid I don’t think we’d be much of a match for each other. Our greatest commonality seems to be the cynical and saturnian sides of each of our personalities, and I’m not looking nourish those traits in myself.

So, thank you for the interesting reads. I hope you end up finding someone, or at least someone who can provide you with a good story.

Have a groovy day,
