Cleaning up the Asterisk Manager Interface module (And beginning documentation...)

Went over the AMI interface I wrote on Wednesday night. It's not as bad as I'd feared, basically seems functional. Probably want to produce a decent interface for waiting/watching events, but for now I've just added a basic "watch for events of this type" hook. I'm tempted to use pydispatcher for it, but for now ...

Dark Eyes of Fatigue

Some women seem to fall into beauty
The universe conspiring at their side
Blessed with good form and clear skin
They forgo powders that hide or smooth
Clean-faced they face the world

These goddesses put those to shame
They might spend a year at labour
Spending all their energy in strife
Yet mortal eyes will ...

Poetry a Smashing Success

Well, that was fun! No more verse this evening, think I need to decompress a bit if I'm going to be able to sleep. About 13 people (didn't actually think to count), and IIRC almost everyone shared a poem, with many sharing their own work. We did quite a few rounds of reading, then sat ...

Poetry Tonight (Yay!)

Poetry tonight
Hopefully many reading
Their own verse
Or found treasures
What sweeter way
To while away a winter's night
Than gentle people
Reading gentle sonnets
Among their like

Tulle Princess

How now, what treachery is this
She's after the crown is she now
We'll see what crown she'll wear
When my well penned soldiers
Part her flowing hair
My kingdom
Princely estate of white
I shall not let you fall to some
Queen-seeming girl with
Naught but crowns and silken verse
To protect her from ...

Drinking Too Late

Days disappear in pointless thrashing
When eyes burn with fatigue
But minds refuse to quench their search
So I sleep but do not rest
Waking to dreams of disemboweling
With a cracked fingernail
Know better than to drink so late
Or to try to sleep when it is done

AMI protocol for Twisted (Another one...)

Got home rather late from the Toronto Asterisk User's Group meeting, hanging out with Leigh, Simon and Shidan afterward at the restaurant and then the bubble tea place. Unfortunately, got home wired for sound because of all the sugar in the bubble tea (rather too much IMO), so I decided to take a crack at ...

Mozzies of Mangos

Come little mango princess
Let me drink of that you are
Below the pretty lace and bows

Come little mango nurses
With your aprons and your capes
I want a red not in your crosses

Come too little swinging pirates
Don't spill it with your swords
I'll take it quick with gentle touch

I'll not ...
