These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

It’s been a pretty serious week so far on the Buckley blog, so I thought we’d lighten the mood a little. Here’s something I wrote this morning for no particular reason.

Sing to the tune of “My Favorite Things,” from The Sound of Music.

Vulcan and Hoth, Z’ha’dum and Arrakis
Louis C.K. and Zach Galifianakis
Hitchhiker’s Guide and The Lord of the Rings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Gรถdel and Escher and Bach and the Beatles
Thumbing my nose at my phobia of needles
Robots that hover on bumblebee wings
These are a few of my favorite things.

C++, Anki, Mozilla, and Blizzard
Gandalf, and Turing, and all other wizards
John Stuart Mill and the Mandelbrot Set
Vincent van Gogh (and I’m not finished yet!)

Braid and the Triforce and Geno and Moogles
Trying out new applications of Google’s
Browsing on Wiki and laughing at Bing
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the news sucks
When the code breaks
When I feel like shit
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I get ohhhh…ver it!

  2. That’s very clever. You’re a genuine, certifiable nerd, and I mean that in the best possible way. ๐Ÿ™‚
