Panda’s Blog: Now with Pumpkins!

Panda’s Blog: Now with Pumpkins!

By Panda

[Editor’s Note: With Season One of the Mark Aldrich and Panda sketch comedy show underway, Panda noticed that she now has fans online who want to know more about her, so she has decided to write and publish a blog about her life. By the way, if you have not started to watch, episodes one through six of Mark Aldrich and Panda are available on YouTube, and each episode is about ten minutes long and hilarious, if I say so myself. And now, here’s Panda with week two of Panda’s Blog.—Mark]

‘The Pic of Paganini,’ a poem by Panda 🐼

By Panda

[Editor’s Note: In an online chat between Panda, Meghan, and Mark, the topic of musicians came up and the name of Niccolò Paganini (October 1782 – 27 May 1840), seen at top, came up, which led to this first entry in what may or may not be a series: “Panda’s Poetry Parade.”—Mark]

This pic of Paganini.
It hangs beside my bed.
And every night I close the door like Paganini says.
