"A phrase in connection first with she I heard"

Here's a fun little haiku meme, courtesy of my sister. It goes through your journal, grabs bits of text here and there, and generates haiku based on what you wrote. Most of mine made no sense, but I managed to get a few decent ones.

This one's cool:

it's not enough i
like my tendency to keep
the melody on

I don't know how this one came about, but it's awesome (you have to know that Maya leadsynth is my sister):

lead synth mom and dad
still don't have to say that it's
a party in here

This one creeps me out, especially since it comes from two places in my journal:

hospital with two
fractured hips i had to
drag my heavy-ass

This one worked out interestingly. A then/now change and a cadence, eh?

playing at schuba's on
sunday night with a then/now
change and a cadence

And here's my favorite, also from at least two places in my journal:

shopping and i would
kidnap him and help him set
up his linux box

And we could make an awesome record in, oh, a day without coffee.

I can't stop. It's morbidly fascinating to see my own sentences chopped up and rearranged into things that sort of sound like things I might say and sort of don't. (I added a little punctuation this time.)

kind of fugly for
a chipotle commercial
i'm torn...should i be?

and we could make an
awesome record in, oh,
a day without coffee

starting to come with
and meet him and help him set
up for rehearsal

but the feeling was
better; in fact, i think i
want to be this way
