Ballad of the Emerald Bard: Appendix - Characters

I've been pondering on doing this for a while, and now that Mother of the Bride is finished, now is the best time, I believe.  This is an appendix to Ballad of the Emerald Bard, in which I keep a list of every character Deeya comes across.  For those that really enjoy the Ballad, this will be an extremely valuable resource.  Expect it to change and grow as the Ballad continues to be sung.

(poem) - Exercise Push

There’s nothing like
Going on a diet
Knowing that you can’t eat food
Even if you see it.

The thought of
Not packing away the food
Is a strange one
Putting people in a sour mood

But the fact is
I’m not active enough
To get rid of
All my ‘fluff’

The fact of the matter is
I’m getting more and more out of shape
And upon the horizon
I can see my wedding date

My goal is to be healthy
I know I haven’t been recently
My stamina has dropped down
Quite drastically

So what am I to do
But diet and exorcize?
I know I don’t want to go up
In my current pants size

One thing about writing
It takes a toll on the body
For you remain at rest
A big softy

But the biggest thing to realize
Is I’m the man of the house
So I must be ready
To Move boxes and fend off a mouse

Luckily at this time
I can walk quite a ways
Because exercise is my friend
At least that’s what I say these days....

Which is a motto
I shall continue
Because I must
Attempt to rescue

My body and my soul
Need me more than ever
Because being unhealthy
May very well sever

My bonds to this mortal coil
And I tell you this with all earnest
I have reason to live
My life to the fullest

So healthy I shall be
For the sake of others beyond me
I will forgo being flabby
And do my best to be healthy.

Because my life
Is not my own anymore
It belongs to my wife
Because it is she that I so completely adore.

One Month Left Until Wedding!

It is now less than one month until my wedding, and we are definitely feeling the rush here in the Brainless Nod Household.  Yeesh....  Luckily we have everything in order that we can control, and are both looking forward to the date.

It’s been a wonderfully crazy experience so far.  A wedding definitely tests a couple’s connection.  One person wants certain things, the other wants other things.  Luckily Lisa and I have really had no real issues with wars over the little things.  Sure, we both can get bent out of shape, but it’s a good lesson in how to work together to the best of each other’s abilities.

In the Hospital

There is absolutely nothing like sitting in a hostpital.  Nothing at all.  Its weird, how I’ve read so many stories where people try to describe hospitals, but I swear, they get it wrong every time.  And I’ve definitely been in enough to know...*sigh*

This latest round...Yeah, there’s nothing quite like sitting in a room with a loved one who just went under the knife.  Not only having to deal with the fact that her life was completely out of your hands the past few hours, but now she’s obviously not feeling herself, looks deathly ill, and is a bit off because of medication.  The first thing I think of when I think of hospitals, is the helplessness.
