  • i am at giff's corner, not hiding from anything. except for the band aid that's covering my unfortunate hickey (early a boohbah band aid, now a nude band aid). my sister told me i remind her of penny lane from almost famous. she was a band aid. and i'm sure she never cared to cover hickeys with her nickname. they were her awards, medals of broken veins.

  • Boohbah is a 2004 television show aimed at children between three and six years old. It premiered in 2003 on ITV in the United Kingdom, and on 19 January 2004 in the United States on PBS.

    The Boohbahs are five furry, gumdrop-shaped creatures played by actors in full body costumes. Their thick, shimmery fur sparkles with tiny lights; their Kewpie doll style heads are hairless and feature big eyes with rows of lights for eyebrows. They do not speak, but instead make noises like squeaks, squeals, and clicks. The Boohbahs can retract their heads into their furry necks. Each Boohbah is a different color. They are:

    Humbah (Yellow)

    Zumbah (Purple)

    Zing Zing Zingbah (Orange)

    Jumbah (Blue)

    Jingbah (Pink)

    The Boohbahs can fly; part of their routine is to assemble into a circle, holding hands like skydivers. Each then emits a different musical note as a flash of colored light (matching the Boohbah's color) is sent out from their heads to a central point.
