Music to My Ears XXXIX

When I stayed with Jim Munroe during a recent trip to Toronto, I asked him whether the phrase "no biggles," which he uses in Everyone in Silico, is actual Canadian slang. Turns out that it's not, that Jim forgot he'd even included that phrase in the book, and that he doesn't even know what it means -- or why he liked it. Nevertheless, he was so inspired by my visit and the phrase that he writ this little ditty. Now, I've written songs about people before -- mostly girls I have crushes on -- but I don't think anyone has ever written a song based on something I've said or done. Yay!
