Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk?

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves did gyre and gimbel in the wabe.
All mimsy were the borogoves and the mome raths outgrabe.

It was tea party time and the fairies were invited!
Honeyarm, Thurible of the Sanctuary, was serving, but seemed none too pleased about it.
She didn't approve of fairies. Or of Fairy *Tea*...

And just for the record, it's sparkling cider, nothing hard!

No matter though, it was a perfect day for a tea party,
and the sun was shining brightly, as the three fairy girls sipped their *tea* in the ferny wood.

l to r: Tangle Rainbowdancer, Bramble Goblindancer, and Gossamer Silverdancer;
also known as Jo, Li, and Mi.

But then Honeyarm stopped serving them!
She left them with empty cups and craving more!
The fairy girls were most distraught!

So Bramble Goblindancer and her fairy sisters thought up a sneaky plan...
(And yes, you *must* use their FULL names each & every time or they will get angry!
And you never want to make a fairy angry!)

... to find the kitchen and serve themselves!

Bramble Goblindancer was clever...
She even managed to open the bottle with no cork screw or bottle opener!

And I was clever enough to get them to pose just once...
Although they still wouldn't show me how they fly with no wings;
They said it was just how their magic worked!

Things started getting crazy after that...
They were sitting on counter-tops and drinking far too much;
Bramble Goblindancer even started getting calls on her cup!

Then Gossamer Silverdancer decided she didn't want to share anymore,
leaving Tangle Rainbowdancer and Bramble Goblindancer with cups as empty as before,
and she drank so much, she couldn't stand up!

That was when Bramble Goblindancer said it was time to stop drinking *tea*
and time to head to the shore...
So she bid them adieu and flew off!

Tangle Rainbowdancer flew off after her,
but poor Gossamer Silverdancer had had too much tea and had to walk!
I must have been a little tipsy myself by this time... ^-^

A little splash in the cool water was just the thing to sober up Gossamer Silverdancer
(and me)!

And so the day dwindled, with much laughing and madness,
but as the fairies flew off with the setting sun, they thanked me for inviting them...

...and told me to share the gifts they left at home...
The gifts you left at home? I asked.
Yes, they'd send them along later, they said, but they were sure that we would love them!

Now you may think that you've gone mad, for how could the party be done and the sun have set when it's barely noon? Well in my world, nothing is what it is because everything is what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it isn't, and what it isn't, it is. You see?

No wonder you're late! Why, this watch is exactly two days slow.

Oh don't worry, even if you've gone completely bonkers. I'll tell you a secret.
All the best people are.

Leave a comment, here, today, for a chance to win a prize from the fairies!
I wish I knew what it was but they wouldn't say!

Edit 6/28:
The gifts from the fairies arrived today! See my latest post to find out what it was!
