She shared her chicken

On Thursday night I went to Godfather's for a slice of pizza and two Bud Lites (yeah, Body Success Challenge, I know). Guess who I ran into?

roberta GuerreroRoberta had come in for a bite to eat, too. She shared her fried chicken strips with me (yeah, Body Success Challenge, I know).

Tan Holdings brings a new band to Saipan every 3 months. They play at Club V on Fridays and Saturdays and at Godfather's, Southern Cross, and Chambre on other days of the week, depending on the band and the business they bring.

Back in 2006 when they first started bringing bands to Saipan, I saw Brown Republic and Resound several times per week.  I'm less of a Club V groupie in my old age.  Or maybe I just don't like bootie dancing anymore.

Anyway, the new band, Art East, started playing last month. I saw them for the first time on Thursday.

Art East BandThe names of the new singers are Donna and Jem, according to Edz.

I gave them a tip and asked them to play Ghostbusters.

They didn't play it.

donna and jemI hate to say this, but most of the Filipino bands that come to Saipan are pretty much the same. There is some variation in the cover songs they sing, but the songs are always cover songs.

I didn't count the consonants in that haiku, but it made me laugh out loud.

That is a funny haiku.

When this all settles down I will expose myself.

None of these singers are as hot as Lovely from Big Beats. She lives on Guam now.

Not haiku.

This is 6,8,6
Turbitt is eating crow. (6)
Roberta is eating chicken. (8)
Who really gives a ___? (6)

Haiku is 5, 7, 5

p.s. what you count are syllables (not consonants) :-)

Happy now Ms. D?

I am not the only person on this island who values attention to detail, and have not previously commented in this thread.

Having been summoned, however, I should point out that the final stanza retains six syllables. May I suggest:

"Does anyone care?"

as a conclusion? Foul language is rarely necessary.

Are you daring us to out you?
If we do, your future words will mean nothing.

Yeah, there are six syllables. Oops on that one.

Oh yeah, consonants vs syllables. Thanks.

I was gonna edit it when I noticed, but Angelo's new comment page is distracting.

How is it distracting? Because you can post from the blog, rather than the comment page?

No it's distracting because Ms. D. can figure it out.

It makes the process longer. Clicking the little comment link for a box to pop up was way easier.
