Birthday Give-away Day #5

Okay so it has been a day. In my experience this is Tuesday’s payback when you make her pretend that she is Monday. She does not like it at all! I wouldn’t either.

Since it has been all kinds of crazy here today, and because I have been immersed in Alice in Wonderland research for a while now, and it is still my birthday week  for a few days, and…I love ravens, this is my question for you today.

Why is a Raven like a writing desk?

There are no wrong answers!

Winner gets…are you ready cause it’s really good?!! Our Single Silk Targhee is due to show up this week.  Yay!!!!!!!! Happy dancing all around the barn! So the winner get 2 skeins dyed in a Raven colorway!!!

Also because it is now the work week and we are all busy bees I am going to leave all the contests open from day #4 until Friday that way we have more time to ponder and play and more of us can play if we so choose.

Look at this!  The wonderful Kalia ( team blue moon) made this for me for my birthday. Kalia is all kinds of wonderful. We remind each other to be grateful!

    Because they both enjoy pigeonholes!

    Oh! I know this one…but here’s my own answer…they are both muses for Disney productions – whether the program ‘That’s so Raven’ or the work surface used to create Disney shows.

    I haven’t the slightest idea! Oh, wait, they both look great in inky black!

    Because Edgar Allen Poe wrote on both!

  6. Ravens and writing desk? It is all about communication. On San Juan Island the Ravens fly over commenting on the weather, the presence of strangers in the area, sources of food, and philosophical musings. Sort of like a flying blog. Fascinating.

    Because they’re black (my writing desk would be, if I had one) and have legs. And talk, my desk would talk, if I had one.
    I’ve always been fascinated by Ravens; wish we had some, to go along with the crow-cousins.

    Because they both come with inky quills.

    Because you’re always trying to figure out how to spend more quality time with both of them.

    I was taught that there was never supposed to be an answer… It was Lewis Carroll’s un-answerable riddle! But I’ve also heard that it’s because Poe wrote on both…

    We might NEVAR know!? Why do the proofreaders think they know the best?
    But I think because both can’t knit/crochet/weave/etc.

    Ravens gather all the shiny odds and ends of the world. As should a good writing desk!

    Because Poe wrote on both! I wish I had come up with that, but I read in Jasper Fforde’s amazing Thursday Next books.

    There was once a raven from Scappoose
    Eyes like ink and quills so profuse
    In a twist Kafkaesque
    Awoke a writing desk
    As to why, I cannot deduce

    Because they are both beautiful and call to you at the most Inopportune times.

    Because both are something you don’t think you need…and yet you realize you’d be lost without them! I love the way a raven assesses you…sometimes giving you a nod of recognition…but always tempting you to “tell me your secret thoughts” before flying away…and the way a writing desk beckons you with “come, sit awhile, and share your secret thoughts with me.”

    Because neither is ever approached without “caws”. (Ouch).

    The raven swoops and soars, hops and peeks, always looking for that next great thing. That writing desk is there waiting for you and all of your great ideas. Both are so full of possibilities!

    “The riddle has no answer, unless it does. But it doesn’t, however it might.” 🙂

    Because they both collect yarn?

    Ink spills black across
    My writing desk, the blot forms
    Raven’s inky quill

    Because they both can consume almost anything! (Or maybe that is only my desk that seems to consume papers and whatnot!)
