Nitty & the Nerd

a little tribute to a wonderful friend

No one really knows this, you all think her name is Cathy. Cathie? Khathie? but

In our secret club of nonsense, she is known to me as Nitty (eh, that rhyme was off).

The inside joke all started from a spell-check fail to fix,

The result is goofy gibberish in our friendly bag of tricks.

You may think you know her as a fine, upstanding lady,

And I can tell you she's all of that but with a mouth straight from a sailor (dammit that didn't rhyme either, hold on...)

Nerd is what she calls me and for the most part that is true,

Dropping rhymes, cat memes and stories that are sometimes kinda blue (there that's better).

There is nothing she won't write about, no joke that she won't tell,

Heavens, moons, fish, bananas, coffee, angels, dragons, hell?

Endless creativity in that marvelous nitty brain of hers,

Nocking it out of the park with her wins and top stories that Vocal does prefer (shut up, I know a 'k' is missing, but too bad).

Everywhere I look online, her prolific presence shines,

Reading, laughing, lamenting, cheering, and giving a middle finger, I mean, um, a peace sign (nice save, Heather).

Dearest nitty, I hope you've enjoyed this tribute to the wonderful awesome friend that you are online :)
