ju ju is a rocking it

So on my car journey to Cork on Sunday, I read Pamie's book, which I had been saving for the weekend away, and which I loved. It would have been smarter of me to read it before I interviewed her for my un-Irish famous journals piece (which still hasn't appeared in the IT, because that crazy paper does everything freakishly far in advance. I'm still not used to it), but that didn't stop me from enjoying it very much. One thing I was pleased to note was the fact that Anna, the heroine, sings stupid songs to her cat. The knowledge that this is a normal(ish) thing to do has given me the courage to make a confession.

Dear readers, I rap at Ju Ju.

I'm sorry. It's just as dreadful as it sounds. It started one day when I was listening to the excellent Northern State, and started rapping over the beats to Ju Ju, who was waddling around the kitchen. I shall share my magnificent freestyling with you all. Please bear in mind that even if Ju Ju could speak, or indeed rap, she would not be "lyrically hazing me" or anyone else, as she is a cross and stupid beast. Which made it all the funnier. She does eat tuna, though.

(Note: Ju Ju is pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable, like jejeune without the 'n'. Juh-jooo.)


Ju Ju is a-rockin' it
Lyrically sockin' it
To you - don't be knockin' it!
So tight she's lockin' it.

Ju Ju is amazing me,
Lyrically hazing me
Eatin' that tuna like
She a cow grazing be.

Come on, come on , you know it's Ju Ju!
Come on, come on , you know it's Ju Ju!
Come on, come on , you know it's Ju Ju!
You know it's Ju Ju, you know it is Ju Ju!

The thing is, it's addictive. Once you start, you can't stop. After I had got this one into my head, I started another one about Ju Ju and her friend, Bu Bu, and how they're "rocking the dancefloor". But I think I'm shamed myself enough for one day.

Hee! That's even worse than me spinning superhero dramas around my cat. Though, of course, I actually do that in public.

okay, now you really have to elaborate on that one.

Oh, dear. That's wonderful!

I really, really want to hear the Ju Ju and Bu Bu one.

Just wait until JuJu does something bad.
"Dat be some baaaaad ju-ju". You could make a blues / rap number out of it.

dear anna, i really fucking love that you chose to make this a public entry.

i will now share a poem i wrote for my cat mischief when i was about 17.

My cat is enormous,
And when sleeping, she snores;
Or prowls around nightly
Across squeaky floors.

finally, i should point out that, it being late at night and me being a little stoned (i could blame this on being in amsterdam, but, um, hello), i'm almost certain to forget about this post and be a bit incredulous when it finally comes to mind again.
