Silly Lovecraft Songs

For the record, Ruoda's first death metal experience was Nile's most excellent Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten. But I will probably wait a few years before taking her to Portland's H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival.

Orc Song

So, I wrote a little ditty for Ruoda last night, who is now fascinated with orcs:

I don't eat dinner with a spoon
And I don't eat dinner with a fork
But you bet your life
I have a knife
Cuz I eat my dinner with an orc!

I don't eat beef or chicken
And I don't eat fish or pork
Since I thought it'd be neat
To cut out meat
Cuz I eat my dinner with an orc!

Feel free to help me out with additional verses. Certainly we can get something out of "dork", "New York", etc.

Over the past 6 months, we have tried in vain to teach Ruoda to respond to "what does a cat/dog/cow say?". Yesterday, within an hour, she was able to pick up "what does an Orc say?".

The future holds much promise.

New blog

For the handful of subscribers to this blog that know me outside of the boardgaming world, a bunch of guys from my gaming group started a communal blog @ http://pdxgaming.blogspot.com. My posts are on Mondays (my first two posts are here and here). The RSS feed is http://pdxgaming.blogspot.com/atom.xml.

The title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the most well known of the private gaming invitationals, Gathering of Friends.
