And you're living proof of that!

Ouch! You must have me confused with Vincent. There is no photographic evidence of my former mulletdom...except maybe a yearbook photo or 2...

It was funny how topless and tassles brought Richard back! How'd he know???

A Irishman went to London and found himself in the Underground late one night.

Seeing a notice "DOGS MUST BE CARRIED ON THE ESCALATOR", he moaned to himself, "And where am I going to find a dog at this hour of the night?"

Yes, our Great Founding Member! We didn't even have time to pull out the red carpet, arrange the bugle players or nuthin'! Like a great emporer arriving amoungst his subjects. King Richard...after all, "Richard" means strong ruler. :D

No need for pomp and circumstance...I blush easily :unsure:

Richard= unimaginative parents (father is Richard also...but with a different middle name....curious, but true :huh:)

I must be getting old, and out of practice (not here enough) I can't keep up with all the silliness...from now on I will just parachute in, oblivious to history...and doomed to repeat it :(

And by the way . . . Yes, Nikki, I will have a cocktail! :D Something fruity with rum, please!

oh yes, me too!!! :rolleyes:

rooting against the 'dogs....Um, methinks, yes, why not??? :P As I told my friend the other day.....we must root against them, because that is all this LOSER town has....and she said, yes, just like a tiny southern town, with only the football team....but I pondered this concept and replied - NO - becuase those tiny southern towns would at least have fabulous old brick buildings and houses, and lots of bucolic, lush landscapes and greenery. (she heartily agreed with me)

Here, we got nothin'. A big, sprawling, polluted, charm-less expanse of NUTTIN!!!! (why do I live here?)

I'll take any fruity martini drink....in my dreams (you know- the ones where I don't have Lyme).

Excellent Irish jokes! And mullets...ahhhhhh.....yes- Vincent was the mullet man...no longer.

I think I had the female equivalent of the mullet in high school...the pat Benatar look (yes- business in the front, party in the back!). I believe it was also referred to as "the hockey hair cut" around here! Not sure why....

Richard you don't need to keep up but you better parachute in OFTEN. If Richard= unimaginative parents, Beverly=Clueless parents and now that I live in a town that shares my name, the jokes are endless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: They were EVEN worse in high school, as I'm sure you can imagine.

i ALMOST ALWAYS have this song stuck in my head. well... i usually have about 40 songs stuck in my head.

it goes like this...

I'm your only friend

i'm not your only friend

but i'm a little glowing friend

but i'm not really your friend.

but i am

BLUE CANARY IN THE OUTLET BY THE LIGHT SWITCH THAT WATCHES OVER YOU

build a little birdhouse in your soul. not to put to fine a point on it, say i'm the only bee in your bonnet, build a little birdhouse in your soul.

i've got a secret to tell. from my electrical well. it's a simple message and i'm leaving out the whistles and bells. so the room must listen to me, filibuster vigilantly. my name is blue canary one note spelled l-i-t-e. my story's infinite. like the blue light symphonete.

my name is

BLUE CANARY IN THE OUTLET BY THE LIGHT SWITCH THAT WATCHES OVER YOU

build a little birdhouse in your soul. not to put to fine a point on it, say i'm the only bee in your bonnet, build a little birdhouse in your soul.

there's a picture opposite me. of my primitive ancestry. that stood on rocky shores and kept the beaches shipwreck free. though i respect that a lot. id be fired it that were my job. after killing jason off and countless screaming argonauts. blue bird of friendliness, like guardian angel it's. a

always near.

(((repeats itself....blah blah blah)))

anyway. it doesnt make you laugh, but if you have my odd sense of humor it does.

bit off topic but yea.

MASCULINE AND FEMININE

**************************

FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.

PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.

TYRES: Tyres are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated.

HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their arse

SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.

WEB PAGES: Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.

TRAINS: Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.

EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.

HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.

THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying

I got nothin' funny today. I sense the slight but still distinct ennui of the soul is creeping in - this happens every fall. In some years it can be quite drastic, but this year I'm hoping for a mild case.

HARRUMPH.

oh my Lord Emily!! :o Snow.....I don't think I could manage snow and minus 20..... :huh: It's a gorgeous time of year here but still......we are heading into the constant blanket of damp fog for months and months. Causes a tendency of cocoon-ing for Dingy. :ph34r:

Y'know, I would take the falling snow over fog any day. And we don't hit -20 too often. I would also take the crisp, dry days at -5 that we see most of the winter over a winter of cool dampness and fog. Whoa, that sounds REALLY depressing.

Hey!! It's the silly thread....

In his early years, my dad was a radio announcer. When he walked under a bridge, you couldn't hear him talk.
