I think she meant tintinnabulation, and I think it was a reference to both me and Phil Ochs.

Oh I see, inside joke. I'm making a guess: Mazel Tovs are in order?

um.... i can't spell. sorry. but, it is really from an Edgar Allen Poe poem. and i was thinking about time when i wrote it. i wanted to be busy yesterday, but at five i realized i had 6 hours until bed. it seemed so dreadfully long to have to be awake and in my own head.

Ah, yes, Poe's whimsical (hey, it's Poe -- this is what passes for whimsical with Poes) classic ode to the life cycle!

What a world of merriment their harmony foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle in the icy air of night!

Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of runic rhyme

To the tintinnabulation that so beautifully wells
Of the bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells
To the rhyming and the chiming of the bells.

Here's to the rhyming and the chiming of the bells, bells, bells...

Just checking in to see if you're still there (here?). It seems so. That's good.
