Full of woe and misery, and ham.

The following was said on my prviate IRC channel on 27 Dec 2004. In retrospect I see that we were writing the lyrics to an opera. So as you're reading along, please sing the lines in your head (or aloud, as you prefer) like an opera singer. Be sure to add lots of dramatic pauses, held-out notes, etc. And also, change from male to female opera singer voices as you switch from the lines from zderek to those from silestra (what a great cameo!) and zmary (my operatic diva partner!).

15:20:44 <zderek> There is no ham.
15:20:53 <zderek> There is certainly not any honey-baked ham.
15:20:58 <zderek> Definitely not.
15:21:04 <zderek> Not on the counter in the kitchen, anyway.
15:21:10 <zderek> Not a whole ham.
15:21:19 <zderek> Not a ham that you don't even have to cook or slice.
15:21:37 <zderek> Best to just forget about ham. I mean, what would be the point in thinking about it? After all, there is none.
15:21:46 <zderek> Doomed to yearn for ham, am I.
15:21:53 <Silestra> bummer
15:22:09 <zderek> Yeah. It's a sad tale.
15:22:19 <zderek> Full of woe and misery, but not ham.
15:24:47 *** zderek changed topic of #zderek to: <zderek> Yeah. It's a sad tale. Full of woe and misery, but not ham.
15:24:47 *** Topic for #zderek is: <zderek> Yeah. It's a sad tale. Full of woe and misery, but not ham.
15:38:07 <zmary> But what about the ham?
15:38:20 <zmary> What about the whole ham on the counter?
15:38:41 <zmary> There certainly is a honey-baked ham in the kitchen.
15:38:55 <zmary> A ham that you don't even have to cook or slice.
15:39:00 <zmary> A whole ham.
15:39:09 <zmary> Doomed to eat ham, are you.
15:39:38 <zmary> Full of woe and misery, and ham.
15:40:14 *** zderek changed topic of #zderek to: <zmary> Full of woe and misery, and ham.
15:40:14 *** Topic for #zderek is: <zmary> Full of woe and misery, and ham.
