... with Supercouplet tidying up the end, I suppose.... I'll leave that one to you, Daniel.

My rhyme-scheme is all up the creek, of course. But it would have taken much longer to get that right and (this may amaze some), I do have a life....

OK. I consider myself duly barrel-organed and pipsqueaked. It was a painful process, but I emerged from it a better and wiser person.

I don't believe for one moment that my vexation has swayed your opinion, Alan. Which is as it should be. And, once again, you've shown gentlemanly tact by humoring my ill-temper. Top it off with spontaneous poesy, and I can no longer understand why I was irritated in the first place.

From very early in this topic:

Quote (Wojtek @ Dec. 19 1999, 12:17)
1st - North ("sharp")
2nd - South ("mild")
3rd - East ("oriental")
4th - West ("western theme")

"Sharp", "mild"... did anyone else get the impression that Wojtek was about to analogize the four winds with cheeses? I was saddened when I couldn't immediately come up with an "oriental" cheese, but I've since discovered that Indian cuisine, at least, does include a cheese called 'paneer'. I'm stumped as to what would qualify as an exclusively "western" cheese, though.

ETA

I've got it - 'Monterey Jack'. Can't get more 'West' than California, right?
