I Heart My Geek

Thanks for being just the geek I need to save the day,

whether it’s a question of my keyboard or display,

or another program that won’t load or open files.

You will come and fix it while you flash your dazzling smiles.

It might be an installation, or a network thing,

or turn into an upgrade, like the crash last month would bring.

Thanks to you, my hard drive dying wasn’t all that bad,

crushing its effectiveness at making this girl sad.

Right away you had me up and going in a pinch

using a small doo-dad that was no more than an inch.

Running Linux from a thumb drive kept me going strong,

helping me participate in NaNo all month long.

When I got my ’puter back, she’s better than before,

lots of room to grow, with most of what I lost restored.

Having tech support on site all hours is such a plus.

You come, investigate, and fix, but never make a fuss.

I’m so glad a super-nerd comes home to me each night,

seeing to my heart and any tech-related plight.

Here’s to you, my one and only favoritest of nerds!

I aim to pay you back, immortalizing you with words.

Clueless

In honor of NaNoWriMo!

rhymaphilia

 How dare you disobey by skipping town!

How dare you threaten suicide this week!

As far as jerkwads go, you take the crown!

I’m so damned mad, I almost cannot speak.

Who told you you could act like you’re a star?

Who told you those were okay things to say?

Who told you you could go and steal a car …

who taught you how to do that, anyway???

So figure out a way to get back home.

And come up with a good excuse (this time).

That ego that you’re using’s just a loan,

with which you perpetrate outrageous crimes.

I’ve never met a man as cheap as you.

I can’t believe the liberties you took.

When I say I’m surprised, it’s ’cause it’s true–

This wasn’t in the outline of my book.

Blitzkrieg!

Some marathon writing will take place tonight …

so brew some fresh coffee and buckle up tight!

I vow to play catch up, perhaps get ahead

(I promise I won’t go to Facebook instead).

Long gone are distractions that plagued me last week

which caused my word count to remain rather bleak.

I’m back here at home with my blinders attached.

Production today has been thus far unmatched!

My knuckles are cracked and my fingers are hot.

This time, I am giving it all that I’ve got.

Click-cllickety-clack: the one sound in this room.

My sweet story bud is beginning to bloom.

It’s full-speed ahead as the pages fly by.

I aim to win NaNo, not to give it a try,

for I’m the white rabbit, who cannot be caught.

So, 50K, here I come, ready or not!

Diversions

It’s only three days in, and yet I’m behind.

I want to clear all but my book from my mind.

Instead come distractions that flood my poor brain.

And not one of them is remotely germane.

I try hard to focus and block out all noise,

resist interference my cell phone deploys,

to keep to the subjects that boost my word count,

a problem I promised, this year, to surmount.

But here I am pausing to dally in rhyme,

a thing which, on most days, is sweetly sublime.

Yet, now, on this day, it’s an unwelcome path.

The goal that I’ve set? I have reached only half.

So now I must go and push on for the day …

just me, my computer, and cheap Chardonnay,

skipping through NaNo Land all through the night,

to share with the world my main character’s plight.

I’ll bust out my blinders! Hole up in this room!

Draw in a deep breath. Let my story resume.
