C'mon, Monica, we all want to hear at least an hour of one of your beautiful practice sessions while everyone is in the house. :p

When it's late on a Friday afternoon, one of my favorite things to do is post on the 1 thread.

TGIF, everybody!

1 inch tall

If you were only 1 inch tall, you'd ride a worm to school.
The teardrop of a crying ant would be your swimming pool.
A crumb of cake would be a feast
And last you seven days at least,
A flea would be a frightening beast
If you were 1 inch tall.

If you were only 1 inch tall, you'd walk beneath the door,
And it would take about a month to get down to the store.
A bit of fluff would be your bed,
You'd swing upon a spider's thread,
And wear a thimble on your head
If you were 1 inch tall.

You'd surf across the kitchen sink upon a stick of gum.
You couldn't hug your mama, you'd just have to hug her thumb.
You'd run from people's feet in fright,
To move a pen would take all night,
(This poem took fourteen years to write--
'Cause I'm just 1 inch tall).

Shel Silverstein


Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

That's wonderful monica. I sometimes referee basketball matches for that age group and they are simply adorable.

The frequency of the word one in 11 Shakespeare plays:

All's Well That Ends Well: 56 times out of a total of 29,415 words
Anthony and Cleopatra: 37/ 32,695
As You Like It; 46/ 27,730
Hamlet: 47/ 39,476
Julius Caesar : 34/ 25,670
King Lear: 38/ 34,314
Love's Labours Lost: 74/ 31,498
Macbeth: 31/ 21,777
The Merchant of Venice: 48/ 26,885
Othello: 56/ 34,812
Romeo and Juliet: 58/ 31,903

The frequency of ones is for some reason highest in Love's Labours Lost (Monica Kern: why?)

Let not my love be call'd idolatry,
Nor my beloved as an idol show,
Since all alike my songs and praises be,
To one of one , still such and ever so.
Kind is my love to-day, to-morrow kind,
Still constant in a wondrous excellence;
Therefore my verse, to constancy confin'd,
one thing expressing, leaves out difference.
Fair, kind and true is all my argument,
Fair, kind and true, varying to other words;
And in the change is my invention spent,
Three themes in one , which wondrous scope affords.
Fair, kind and true, have often liv'd alone,
Which three, till now, never kept seat in one .

(Shakespeare with nearly 5% one) wink

er... this one does not know why the frequency of "1" is highest in Love's Labour Lost. That happens to be one of the only Shakespeare plays I have never read [she says, hoping nobody calls her bluff on the other ten plays laugh ].

But congratulations, buxtehyde and ragnhild, for raising the literary quality of the "1" thread to hitherto unsurpassed heights.

Since you are one professor of psychology, you shall be forgiven. Were you one English professor, thou wouldst suffer much embarrassment. laugh

Yes, indeed. Wise words.
But still, a professor is a professor... aren't we entitled to expect... I mean...

Alright Monica, you'll get one chance more: - the psychology behind this sonnet then? (Please answer in exactly one thousand one hundred and one words).

MUSIC to hear, why hear’st thou music sadly?
Sweets with sweets war not, joy delights in joy:
Why lov’st thou that which thou receiv’st not gladly,
Or else receiv’st with pleasure thine annoy?
If the true concord of well-tuned sounds,
By unions married, do offend thine ear,
They do but sweetly chide thee, who confounds
In singleness the parts that thou shouldst bear.
Mark how one string, sweet husband to another,
Strikes each in each by mutual ordering;
Resembling sire and child and happy mother,
Who, all in one, one pleasing note do sing:
Whose speechless song being many, seeming one,
Sings this to thee: ‘Thou single wilt prove none .’

Lucky to be excused - I am not the one who has studied languages and literature - I would think the second sonet (You're right Bux, I did not se that one ) made a good answer to the first..

But, Buxtehude are litterature or language your subject (and are you a professor maybe ?)

Oh, Ragnhild, I'm sorry, I had misspelled sonnet (two n's, in fact) and edited it away, apparently right after you wrote your post. It's my fault!

No, literature is not my profession, weather is. I'm a climatologist. But that doesn't keep me from reading...

I am very happy you are not a language-teacher, Buxtehude - look what you've done to my spelling - as if it wasn't bad enough already.
(And it's Sonette in Norwegian so I believed you..) - never trust a Dane frown

At least I know who to blame for all this bad weather (not the right day, though, this morning the sky looked like in my avatar).

And I am still happy to be , as Monica puts it :

raising the literary quality of the "1" thread to hithert unsurpassed heights.
And even more happy, Buxtehude to have reached "500" before you ....

Sorry Buxtehude, but I'm afraid you have some more editing to do (you must incorporate the number or word "one" into every post on the one thread)
First might be considered ok, but I'll give you one more chance for the post before that one ...
