Basically, I typed in the verses, then set up links to the major names.  It’s a great drinking song, even if you’re not Australian.  Although, how anyone can remember the names after a couple of thimbles of Jaegermeister, is beyond me.

Harold Bloom has read more books than Cher has had makeovers.  He is a polyglot of a high order.  Yes, his writing style is sometimes bloated with rampant intellectualism, but as you re-read his work, you definitely feel the love, even if it’s something he doesn’t like.  Does anyone love literature more than Bloom?  Does anyone understand and appreciate the simple pleasure of reading more than he?  If you don’t like and/or understand Bloom?  Read FARENHEIT 451 by Ray Bradbury.  Bloom is the line between this life and the next.

Aahhh, romance.  That brainless, flighty, ethereal rose that sometimes eludes even the most daring of us.  Holding on to it is like trying to squeeze sand.  Most of us tend to treat romance like a plant — knowing we have no green thumbs.  We overwater it, over-sun it, underfeed it.  And it quits us.  However, that does not stop it from being fun when we have it.  Delicious when we taste it, quenching when we drink of it.  It satisfies many appetites.

Humor is a serious business, especially for me.  A day without a laugh is like, er…night.  Like the title says — "preserving my sanity".
