3 Limericks – Happy Birthday, Dad!

In honor of my dad’s birthday, I will be posting 3 limericks (because he used to write lots of those). Prepare for silliness!

There once was a man they called Boy
Who lived with unsinkable joy
He doesn’t go bad
He merely goes mad
This unsinkable man they call Boy

There once was a man they call Cisco
Who lived in the era of disco
He herds silly cats
That often go fat
In the marketplace neighborhood Frisco

There still is a man I call dad
Whose geek cred is really quite rad
The comics, books, shows,
And movies he knows
Can make any geek daughter glad

Happy Birthday, Geek Who Spawned Me!

Yep, today’s my Dad’s birthday. Happy birthday, geek who spawned me! 😀

Many of you who have been following my blog probably know by now that my father cultivated his children’s inner geek by letting us learn how to read through old comics, introducing us to the work of Neil Gaiman AND Alan Moore, being responsible for the big honking book collection we have at home (to be fair, mom helped by commissioning a big honking book shelf for them), marathoning Dr. Who and Sherlock with us, taking ridiculously immense pride in our weirdness, and geek ranting with us on a near-weekly basis.

I love you Daddy, as only a geek daughter can love her geek dad. Hope you have a happy birthday, and see you over the weekend!
