National Pina Colada Day

Sunday, July 10, 2016

After last night's exhaustion, I got home, fed and pottied the critters, and fell asleep about 10A. Cracked an eye open a few times to look at the clock, wonder what on earth the pups were barking at now, but mostly slept until 10P. Too late to feed the pups again, change out of my jammie's, and walk the pups, so I broke my streaks of walking them, exercising for at least 45 minutes, and getting 10K or plus steps. Oh, well ...

NATIONAL PINA COLADA DAY - love these - stay way from them because of the calories and the sneaky way they creep up on me - don't want to stop at just one!


NATIONAL CLERIHEW DAY - who or what is Clerihew, you (& I) ask? Edmund Clerihew Bentley wrote humorous short biographical poems - not to be confused with limericks!


Rupert Holmes, 19789, Escape (The Pina Colada Song). Did you seriously think I'd find a song for Clerihews?


I was tired of my lady, we'd been together too long
Like a worn out recording of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleepin' I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns, there was this letter I read


If you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes of the cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for, write to me and escape


I didn't think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady had fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad
And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half bad


Yes, I like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon and cut through all this red tape
At a bar called O'Malley's where we'll plan our escape


So I waited with high hopes and she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady and she said, "oh, it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment and I said, "I never knew."


That you like pina coladas and gettin' caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean and the taste of champagne
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes on the cape
You're the lady I've looked for, come with me and escape


If you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes on the cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for, write to me and escape


Yes I like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon and cut through all this red tape
At a bar called O'Malley's where we'll plan our escape
