Learning to Fib

THUD.

Oh, excuse me, that was just the sound of me jumping on the Fibbery Bandwagon. And while I don’t make it a personal habit to go bandwagon jumping in general, we’re talking about Poetry AND Numbers here, and as you might imagine, we Squares LOVE those numbers…in fact I read an article where J.J. Abrams says the numbers from his show LOST don’t mean anything and I’m still determined to figure out their significance. How’s that for perseveration er, I mean persistence?

And the fibonnaci sequence, I mean who isn’t completely fascinated by it? Oh…just me again?

So after learning about fibs and GottaBook from Kristina who writes a fib about Charlie, I decided to get on board and make up my own fibs…and you know what? It’s actuall kinda fun to fib…so to quote one of my favorite doctors and authors:

“Try it, try it and you may! Try it and you may, I say!”

My First Fib,

Poetry!!!!!
This could last for hours.

Nice Fibbing. And you're not the ONLY one fascinated by the Fibonacci sequence and the ilk. Admittedly, we might not make up a huge segment of the whole populace, but we're out there.

PS. I might prefer Seussery to Fibbery, but don't tell anyone :-)

It may comfort you to know I learned the Fibonacci sequence in sixth grade and I still do it in my head just walking around. 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55 Mmmmmmm. I've done it into the five digits. Prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Count
words
Never
In her life
She only dreams of
The pretense of a dorky girl
While in the hidden recess of her mind she dreams cool.

Thanks Gregory.

Oooh, five digits...that could make me pretty happy too.

Kristina, I'd love to hear your attempt! That is quite an ambitious goal!
