'Twas the night before THE Mad Tea Party
And all 'round the web
People were scurrying
with finishing touches, before bed
(Loki, Dharma and Sarj, lookin' for that guy with the hat)
The fur babies' tails wagged as they peered out the front door
hoping to glimpse the Mad Hatter from Roo's tales of yore
(and hoping maybe he'd bring a biscuit or two -
'Cause while tea is nice, for dogs it just won't do!)
(Take two, they're small. Wink, wink)
The cupcakes were ready, waiting for guests in the kitchen
(Though to eat 'em myself I was really itchin'!!)
I lamented to my cocktail about my procrastination,
and crazy busy life, with no time for celebration
and mumbling, finally sat down with my PC
to work on a post for the Tea Party.
(Roo's conundrum mug)
When out of my laptop there arose such a clatter~
Caput! Sputter! Fizz!
"Oh no!" I cried, "What's the matter?!?!?!?
"Please don't die now!" I prayed and issued my whiney plea~
"I've got so much to do to get to the Tea Party!"
(Sad state of affairs~)
But then..... the PC -- it twinkled!
And a strange "FUN" light kept blinking.......
And I thought to myself, "I really gotta stop drinking."
(The infamous White Rabbit appears with little known side kick, Birdie)
And what did my dry red eyes deem to see
Pop out of the screen but a rabbit and birdie!
They said, "Have no fear! Your hope is not gone!
For you've been the power source all along~
All you gotta do is follow your bliss
and you'll find yourself in A Fanciful Twist!"
Says I, "A nice sentiment,
and I appreciate your zeal.
But how do I get there-
Magic carpet? Ferris Wheel?"
They giggled and said, "Try kayaking, your favorite transport mode!"
"Kayak to the desert?" I asked incredously. "Are ya handing me a load?"
(Loki likes his biscuit but wonders if rabbit's foot is tastier...)
"No really!" Rabbit squeaked; and then they flitted out the door
leaving dog biscuits and paw prints all over the floor
but, these final words they deemed to impart~
"Remember, celebrate life and always follow your heart!"
(It's always sunny in Limey the Kayak) :)
So outside I went and followed moonbeams
which led to Limey the Kayak floating on a magic stream!
So I shrugged, and paddled and wondered if the right way I went....
and then up in the sky I saw another message was sent.
Soon the stream dried up and I found myself on land...
and when I saw the sign below I knew the party was close at hand....
And then, an AHA! moment - happiness is all that matters
not deadlines and gadgets, but laughter, love --and Mad Hatters!
(My adorable Mad Hatter, Wolfboy/Man. Ain't he cute?) <3
So we thank you for stopping by the Treehouse today
Have fun partying, and remember always to PLAY!!!!
xoxo Roo, Mad Hatter Wolfboy, Loki, Dharma and Sarj
(and introducing Kali, who slept on top of my feet as I typed this) :)
Have a magical day!!
