The Missing Ku

Anyone notice
something funky around here?
Huh? Bueller? Bueller?

Yep, I'm soooo busted.
I forgot yesterday's ku.
Plenty of reasons:

Monday? Shittastic!
The Man bent me over from
morning 'till night. Ouch.

derailed my train of thought. I
think I can...I think...

I arrived at home
and colored ducks with Mia
and moons, stars and cows.

Coloring is a
much better way to spend the
day than busting hump.

Anyway, I was
busy but that's hardly an
excuse. Bad Cactus.

My penance today
is blogging in ku fashion.
And this ain't easy.

It's early and my
head might just burst into flames
all this counting stuff.

Now that I have sent
Ancient Japanese poets
spinning in their graves

I must get coffee,
settle in for a long day.
Capice, grasshopper?

Today? Ku Smackdown
Day. Like Iron Chef but with
words, not beets. Or squid.

Open the comments
and unleash the ku power.
Word to your ginsu.

May your Tuesday be
filled with less shittasticness
than your Monday was.

I think we may
twins separated at birth.
You have freaked me out.

My post today was
going to be in haiki
form, but I wussed out.

Can you add the "be"
to the comment above, for
I hit backspace? Whoops!

Posted by: mr lady at February 13, 2007 8:32 AM

I remember this
when we used to do it once
a week with hosts, yo.

'member when Zeno
caused a stink with his sonnet?
the smackdown drama!

Posted by: Pamalamadingdong at February 13, 2007 8:40 AM

OK, so I go to "KU" and was freaked out when I read the headline. Guess we're still here though - wish I could write a haiku for that, but don't have enough time before running off to class.

Today: Subaru
and I and baby will go
into the snowstorm.

Dramatic sounding, huh? I impress myself.

Anyone notice
if I made an appearance
in my own comments?

Posted by: Chris at February 13, 2007 9:18 AM

Oblivious me.
I didn't even notice.
What does that say, huh?

Posted by: kim at February 13, 2007 9:19 AM

Going through divorce.
Not been laid in far too long.
She's one cranky bitch.

Too much? How about this:

Mac woke up today
She asked with her eyes still closed...
School cancelled? Delayed?

Happy, Happy snowy Tuesday.

god god your power
of the 'ku is inspiring
at ku posts, you rock

me? far too tired
to go 'ku on my readers
coffee is my friend

Posted by: suze at February 13, 2007 9:29 AM

hard blogging in ku
not as easy as it looks
kudos for it, you

Posted by: Marilyn at February 13, 2007 9:31 AM

I'm not Ku-ing because I have a very limited amount of brain cells these days and must save them for more important tasks...i.e. measuring formula. I so miss the days of the Haiku Smackdown! What a tragic loss. Yo.

Posted by: JuJuBee at February 13, 2007 10:03 AM

I noticed said ‘ku
Was missing on Monday morn’.
I loves me some ‘ku.

Also noticed your own comment, above!

Posted by: Liz at February 13, 2007 10:50 AM

It's snowing here, yo.
The trudge to work was messy.
I should have stayed home.

I love the random "yo" to add syllables. Happy Ku-Day!

Posted by: SpaceCase at February 13, 2007 11:09 AM

Heh -- Mondays sucketh:
'ku was missing; never fear,
Tuesday 'ku will work.

And, yes, I saw you a-hidin' in your comments!

Oh, and one in honor of today:

Snow days rock my world.
Kids were illin' yesterday;
Stay home with YOUR 'rents!

(Kids' behavior sure is a great indicator of nasty weather -- who needs the weatherman anyhow??? Teachers sure don't!)

Five-Seven-Five haiku
style isn't too bad at all.
Try rhyming Thai poem.

Big event in a week.
I'm drowning in papers and
print jobs to farm out.

Shittastic, the day
is going to be, I'm sure.
Good luck to you too.

Posted by: oakley at February 13, 2007 11:55 AM

Oh doh! That was one
too many syllable on
my first line of 'ku.

Whoops. :)

Posted by: oakley at February 13, 2007 11:57 AM

I cannot Ku because I'm about to spend boku bucks buying a car and I always get freaked out when doing this. You see I save and save and then buy cash. I love the saving part, but hate parting with the bucks. Call me cheap, call me a Scotswoman! LOL

Posted by: Maribeth at February 13, 2007 12:18 PM

havent ku'd since school
way sucked at it back then too
still not sure if right


Posted by: mad mom at February 13, 2007 12:42 PM

I haven't posted
Since Stick Stuff On Your Head Day
I am a slacker

You post on your site
Almost every single day
So you missed a ku?

Posted by: krystyn at February 13, 2007 12:45 PM

Time with child
Never an excuse
Preparation H will do

Posted by: Michele at February 13, 2007 12:55 PM

Loos in my office
Out of order, don't know why
Where shall I go?

Posted by: FW Sunshine at February 13, 2007 1:11 PM

Jealous I am of
Kids and snow days. Why you be
Hatin' snow, SoCal?

Posted by: loon at February 13, 2007 1:16 PM

I got in a fight
with a manila folder
and the folder won

Posted by: Tink at February 13, 2007 1:45 PM

So sorry to hear
about your horrible day.
Is today better?

Spending time with kids
trumps all planned activities.
I salute you, Chris.

But on next Monday?
Better be back in business...
I crave funny 'Kus.

P.S. I saw you
sneaking into your comments.
Couldn't get enough?

Posted by: Ross at February 13, 2007 2:04 PM

Like the rain and snow,
Your Monday drags on and on.
But Mia brings joy.

I hope your work week,
like the cherry blossom blooms,
bursts, then fades away.

Posted by: Annie at February 13, 2007 3:11 PM

You guys are rockin'
the mad gangsta-ku action.
Makin' me look bad.

Posted by: Chris at February 13, 2007 4:33 PM

Oh look there he is,
sneaking the comment again!
Sneaky Chris Cactus

Hide and 'ku with you
is a perfect way to just
slack off today. Damn!

Posted by: oakley at February 13, 2007 5:21 PM

Mia's smile brings light
to an otherwise dark day
Show us more pictures

Posted by: wordgirl at February 13, 2007 5:45 PM

Blogs seeking Bueller...
second one I've seen today.
What am I missing?

Posted by: the weirdgirl at February 13, 2007 5:56 PM

Work sucks, 'specially
when everyone but you gets
to take a snow day.

Posted by: Beth in StL at February 13, 2007 6:50 PM

Word to your ginsu?
Chris, you always make me laugh
Silly Cactus man.

Posted by: Heather at February 13, 2007 8:58 PM
