Hehe you Pooh-bahtically Grand grammarians just don't like to embrace the scientific or mathematical concept of the unknown variable, do you? ;)

Darn right we don't! NO embracing of unknowns here....smacks of syllogisms and algebriac formulas and all of that HEINOUS mind-aching, aggravating stuff! Give me my misplaced modifiers! My parallel structures! Take me away from all of this!... :lol:

We don't need to know what substance P is to run a successful experiment. :P

Well....I think that substance P is a Past Participle. :P

I think I may have to barf now (am somewhat of a bulimic drinker) :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

but........I'm not as sad as I was earlier today.

This, for some reason, aroused a huge guffaw in me, Susie. May have to barf, now, like I may have to let the dog out, or bring the plants in for the night. :lol::lol:

Sounds like your mojo is peeking around the corner, edging its way back...YAY!

I made mention of it not being 2buck Chuck anymore & they looked at me like I was nuts and making sh.... stuff up!

They said Twobuck Chuck... :lol::lol:

Here it's just referred to as Plonk.

Is the Yeti home sick yet? He seemed to like my house. He loved my huge cat! Lucky warmed up to him too..Lucky was a bit scared of his size, but would curl up next to him when he was sleeping. I think the fur was like a blanket to him.

Anybody seen THIS . . . it's a hoot. My bil sent an email version. I checked it on snopes and apparently this did happen although there is some missing background info that you don't get in the letter exchange . . .

But he walked around calling out my name, "Sarah, your Daddy called me!"

Made all those other poor blokes wish they had a Daddy like Sarah's . . . :D

the HELL you say! We do TOO need to know what substance P is!!!!!!!!!!! how can we ameliorate the situation if we don't know what substance PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE is????????????????????

So I was thinking to my self . . . Self, here they go again with the made up words!! Now what witty, smart-assed reply are we going to make? And OMG it's a real word. Susie, do you have one of those new-word-a-day calandars? Do a lot of cross-word puzzles? California State Scrabble Champ? I can honestly say I've NEVER come across that word before. In my younger days, we would have made you drink for using a word like that . . .

OMG - I have just had THREE glasses of $2 chardonnay.

Oh . . . apparently, that still holds true. :P

I can see the book titles now ....Plants big day out in the garden

Gawd - if they can't make it through the winter nights here it shows a serious lack of character and I'm not sure its the sort of plant I want !!!!! ;):lol:

So I was thinking to my self . . . Self, here they go again with the made up words!!

Only when he was home sick and got a tad upset

:huh: <confused>

He was @home & sick? Or was there an inadvertant decompounding of homesick?

:huh:

Absolutely no coyotes wandering around London - but we do have loads of red foxes who would eat up kitty Will without a second thought <_<

Ah but you've got another dangerous indigenous beast of your own.

"He's the hairy-handed gent, who ran amok in Kent. Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair."

Is Nikki anywhere near Kent or Mayfair?

"I saw a werewolf drinkin a pina colada at Trader Vic's . .. .. his hair was perfect."

Not sure if this narrows down his location any - is there only one Trader Vic's?

Or maybe only one also has a hair salon or very good barber on the same block?

(I've always loved the "his hair was perrrrfect" line :D )

P.S. "ahhhhhh-oooooOOOOOOO!!!"

Mygawd......

"The vomiting center in the brainstem contains high concentrations of substance P and its receptor, in addition to other neurotransmitters such as choline, histamine, dopamine, serotonin, and opioids. Their activation stimulates the vomiting reflex."

SUSIE! You said last night that you had to barf.....YOU are FULL of substance P! It isn't a foreign thing at all...It's our Susie!

(There's a vomiting centre in our brain....gad....how BIG is it?) Sounds like a big store. "Gotta get me to the Vomiting Centre this aft. Could be some specials on leftover produce"... :lol:

Dangling?

But of course....I seem to bring about, or attract, only those that dangle... :rolleyes:

. but someone's got to get Bev one of these - she'll love it!!!!!!

:blink: why does everyone mix the poodle with everthing? Do you think there are any DingoDoodles in Australia? :huh:

This, for some reason, aroused a huge guffaw in me, Susie. May have to barf, now, like I may have to let the dog out, or bring the plants in for the night.

Sounds like your mojo is peeking around the corner, edging its way back...YAY!

So glad to give you a good guffaw. :) I was not able to successfully barf up the white, seems the red is the one that erupts more easily - or spontaneously, as it were. :blink: So, a little blurry and tired today.

:huh:

They said Twobuck Chuck...

Here it's just referred to as Plonk.

Silly! You probably don't know about Charles Shaw. He is actually a Franzia, HUGE winemaking empire in California (famous for scary boxed wines in the past). So......Franzia took his leftover wine juice and did the most brilliant thing........he made about four varietals under the Charles Shaw name, and sells them for TWO DOLLARS a bottle, only at Trader Joe's. It's mega genius. He is a bajillionaire now........ So the wine really is nicknamed Two-buck Chuck.

further information: In a blind tasting of around 300 chardonnays last year in California, CHARLES SHAW chard came in FIRST. :o A complete riot and SHOCKER in the wine community. So, I broke down and bought some........I have to say, it is quite a decent chardonnay - better than many, many chards three and four times as much.

Okay and here's a little bit more!!!!!!!!!! I used to work at the only climbing store (now defunct) in this city, with a sassy and beautiful free spirit named Jen. She drove a 20-year-old VW bug......was a starving college student who had backpacked all over the world......no makeup......feisty, down-to-earth, darling girl. Years later, she MARRIED Brian Franzia, scion of the extraordinarily wealthy Franzia family..........

good gawd. We were all pretty astonished!!!!! And we would say - just think of the climbing rack she can buy now.............

:lol:

So I was thinking to my self . . . Self, here they go again with the made up words!! Now what witty, smart-assed reply are we going to make? And OMG it's a real word. Susie, do you have one of those new-word-a-day calandars? Do a lot of cross-word puzzles? California State Scrabble Champ? I can honestly say I've NEVER come across that word before. In my younger days, we would have made you drink for using a word like that . . .

:lol: Bit of a word geek here.......do you have any idea how many bowls of rice I've now contributed to the world? (freerice.com, thank you Jess) And yes, for years I did the crossword puzzle EVERY single day - sometimes couldn't sleep until it was finished - bit of an OCD thing so gave it up..........

:lol::lol:

Nope...

But you know the honeymoon was not that great since he got pneumonia and was feeling his worst at that point....and you know he was finally getting better and now he is home sick again this time he was killing over with stomach pain this morning...I am getting worried about him.

SUSIE! You said last night that you had to barf.....YOU are FULL of substance P! It isn't a foreign thing at all...It's our Susie!

(There's a vomiting centre in our brain....gad....how BIG is it?) Sounds like a big store. "Gotta get me to the Vomiting Centre this aft. Could be some specials on leftover produce"... :lol:

:o

wait.........what? :huh: Do you mean......*I* am substance P? Vomiting centRE? oh good lord.......I have to try and wrap my mind around this.

:blink:

Nope...

Amanda! does he have his appendix? Sounds suspiciously like a slow, painful case of appendicitis to me! :o mygawd, I have never known such pain as the appendix near bursting - mine hit quite suddenly, but I have known of many cases of lingering conditions.......

I was asking him about his appendix, but he didn't seem to be holding that side of his body. He was throwing up this morning too....if he has a stomach flu I am hoping he won't be sharing that....it is no fun!

:o

wait.........what? :huh: Do you mean......*I* am substance P?

I should go edit Wikipedia. The TRUTH is that substance P was one of a GROUP of neuropeptides originally thought to be ONE and named substance Z. Further research determined substance Z was a plethora of distinct polypeptides and the most common, abundant one kept the name substance Z.

HowEVah! One pesky polypeptide, particulary difficult to differentiate from substance Z, was so strikingly similar, it became known as Pseudo-Z, ( :o:lol: ! ) aka substance P, tho pseudo-Z was preferred back in the lab. Of course, over time, the squints in their lab coats just shortened verbal references to "pseu-zee".

(There are some who will claim that there was a spiteful aspect to this pronounciation w/ regard to the repeated romantic rebuffs of the cute receptionist Suzannah, whose mantra was said to be "I'd rather puke than date a scientist".)

P.S. I just HAD to get that out while it was still in my head! Now to go back & catch up. (and .. .. .uh-oh .. ...am I cracking mySELF up too much?)
