Captain Blakey

Due to popular demand--OK, two of you plus Greg--here it is: 'Captain Blakey', my first filk.

It's based on Captain Beaky (and his Band), a song I love and was delighted to find on a CD collection of children's songs and stories we bought last week. If you don't know it, it's a pity as the catchy and stirring music is a major part of its charm--I've had it in my head all week. For anyone interested, the original lyrics (with a couple of small mistakes), are here.

[edit] If you do want to hear the original so that you know the music that goes with it, the mp3 file is here.

A couple of colour quizzes

HTML colour snurched from astrogirl2

you are paleturquoise

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is low - You stay out of stressful situations and advise others to do the same. You may not be the go-to person when something really needs done, but you know never to blow things out of proportion.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.
the html color quiz

Yeah, sounds about right, and it's almost my favourite colour too: turquoise.
