NO, NO.........T'was wayyyy back (don't do it! :o ) during King Richard's reign.....I think it was

''Children of the SillyYaks & the Swinging Dingoes''

:lol: before my time

I dunno Tom :unsure: it would make them awfully nervous - their people were forced into cleaning chimneys many a year ago - and the soot is not good (a few are asthmatic :( )

Shucks!

But maybe I've got room in the bar now that I'm not much of a drinker. :)

Unfortunately I'm finding out that my roommate (1st roommate in ~13 yrs) is more of a drinker than expected. During all of my trips over the summer I stayed w/ him and maybe not once saw him drunk. But, aha, that was while his wonderful 8yr old Lauryn was here too.

Loud, illogical drunk John wears on me. :(

Those infamous little people...able to be scaled? :huh: I need to know the nature of these beings. They have scales? And one would remove them for cosmetic reasons, I should think. You're not planning on consuming them, Tom? Pan-fried with a bit of lemon and dill? :o (Green guy)...'tis another reason to....scale something.

Or perhaps you're wondering if they are scaleable as, for example, Mount Everest is, for a chosen few. I should think that these little guys are NOT scaleable in this manner, and attempting it would kill them.

Emily, thank you for bringing this up. I, too, was rather taken aback at the "scaleable" query....... :o

Good Lord, Nikki, do they have scales? It had not occurred to me that our Little People would be squamous.

:lol:

Nah....I MUCH prefer the "This is my dead cat" profile info. Susie, do it. Dunno how many newbies will be reading your posts, though. :lol::lol:

:lol: :lol:

Yup, forum's changed a lot in the time I first joined (nearly two years)....I don't remember seeing words like YETI in the captions.........

:lol:

If we can "scale" that Yeti down, maybe he can come by our house for a couple days!

In fact, scale him down far enough, and I'll hang him on the tree next to the Bumble ornament!

:lol:

Oh yeah, he'll come back to Nikki asking her to pull his finger... asking if he can borrow a couple bucks... if he stays in NC long, he'll be wanting grits and gravy for breakfast... and he'll greet her with, "Hey Ya'll! I had a good ole time over yonder!"

:lol:

oh good Lord - can anything be worse than an AMERICANIZED Yeti? I don't think so.......

LOL---I love John but I hate when football is on...He gets loud and acts dumb, boys will be boys I guess!

Loud and dumb :lol:

Loud, illogical drunk John wears on me. :(

:o

Yes, it would wear one out......maybe you should put those poodle earmuffs on, and scale the Yeti?

OH LORD!!! - NOT SQUAMOUS!!!!!!

I couldn't bear that!!! .......nope, just cute miniatures - no forked tongues thanking you!!!

oh good Lord - can anything be worse than an AMERICANIZED Yeti? I don't think so.......

I feel it would be improper - doesn't he hail from Canada???

Tom, my roommate is also very wearing when drunk :rolleyes: ....WAIT......he's my Husband :lol:

:lol: leave it to Emily, our Emirate of Elaborative Expounding!!

It appears that perhaps everyone but the Grammatical Co-Poohbahs saw 'scaleable' as intended. Hmmmmm . . .. .interesting. (And NOT just in a bump-my-post-count-hurrying-to-501's-captionality-way!!)

In fact, scale him down far enough, and I'll hang him on the tree next to the Bumble ornament! :o:lol:

:lol: & I don't yet know what a "Bumble ornament" is!

So Sunday morning, I fixed my hair and got ready for Mass, and came out into the living room... and Lucas said, "Mommy you look beautiful! And YOUNGER!"

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww :)

At our house we say pop instead of soda...He can take that back and he did start to root for the NY Giants with John so he may have picked up the habit of yelling at the TV!

Pop!!! In Chicago we say pop and I never knew where else it's said.

I STILL don't like saying soda. :angry:

I gotta say I imagine Brits do more than a little yelling at the telly during a match on the pitch.

That sounds about right. I say "pop" and I'm from south western NY. I think "soda" sounds goofy. :P But that's all you hear down here.

I feel I should have a comment, in defense of both football and the sports-watching male, but all I do is chuckle when reading this.

I thought you were talking about my John?

Awwwll-right then!

Let me be more specific.

When drunk to the point of *LOUD* & illogical, every John wears on me. (On me wears? .. . . .no wait .. .that was unnecessary I bet)

. . . .. :lol: Um, sorry to the boy(s) but I think it's menstrual ennui.

As if I'm not already overly accustomed to such talk, being so overwhelmingly the minority here & on the omg thread. Heck, the entire FORUM!!

To Scale Down the Yeti...an excellent ring to that. I hear another coin-phrasing episode approaching...

Why are we concerned about scaling down the yeti? Man, I gotta scale down my vet bill, my driveway snowdrifts, my laundry piles, my MIL (who arrives for an eighteen-day Christmas stay next week...) :o:o , gad! On it goes...

Loud, illogical drunk John wears on me. :(

Get him a user name, and throw him onto this thread. We'll take care of him...

I feel I should have a comment, in defense of both football and the sports-watching male, but all I do is chuckle when reading this.

Hey! They can be female...Few people make more noise when watching hockey or football than I. Quite embarrassing, actually....even for me!

Bumble! You know, the Bumble? The abominable snowman from the Rankin/Bass claymation classic, "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer"????

Aren't the abominable snowman and the yeti the same thing? These guys could be cousins!

.... and can I just say EEEEK!!???!?! My husband's company Christmas Party is this Friday, and I don't know what to wear. May not sounds like a biggie, but OMG clothing- and hair-related dilemmas have been known to drive me into a crying, red-faced frenzy. I know, there is something wrong with me.

Last year, I felt overdressed, which I think is WAY worse than being underdressed. I thought, maybe I can wear the same black skirt and dress it down. Then I wondered, "Will someone remember the skirt from last year?" No, surely not.... then I realized that I remember what every other woman at our table was wearing from last year.

Am I a freak, or does everyone remember stuff like that?!

Anyhoo... I regret having to inform you all that you're likely to hear from me again on this situation between now and Friday...

My weren't you all busy while I was gone to the peidatrician . . . AGAIN!!! My daughter does NOT have strep (although her medication may have messed up the results) so we have both a strep cootie and a stomach virus cootie simultaneously inahbitating household (although, no chicken butt cooties). This may turn into ALL kinds of fun.

Loud, illogical drunk John wears on me. :(

How long is the lease? When does his daughter come back?

Emily, thank you for bringing this up. I, too, was rather taken aback at the "scaleable" query....... :o

Good Lord, Nikki, do they have scales? It had not occurred to me that our Little People would be squamous.

Another trip to dictionary.com . . . Susie, YOU have become my word-a-day calendar! Anybody else want to admit that they have to visit dictionary.com on a regular basis? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? . . . Just Me?

When drunk to the point of *LOUD* & illogical, every John wears on me.

Soda???......Pop????

How about Coke or Lemonade or cold drink :P

You guys :lol:

:lol:

OMG I thought of somethign else......we at times can actually refer to all sodas as COKE out here. So...someone will say - "do you want a Coke" when they really mean - any kind of SODA POP :lol: but since Coke was the first one - right after sarsaparilla - I think - people will axe you if you want a Coke......

:lol:

Scaling down the Yeti.....yet another in a string of hits by the Bad Ass Snow Poodles... :lol:

Am I a freak, or does everyone remember stuff like that?!

Anyhoo... I regret having to inform you all that you're likely to hear from me again on this situation between now and Friday...

:lol: Calm thyself. We are here to help.

Okay.....FIRST of all - NO - everyone does NOT remember what you wear, although some women will. But you are NOT to worry, and in fact you can wear the EXACT same thing you wore last year, but change your accessories/jewelry etc, and no one will notice. I think you're quite safe to go with basic black and some variances.

OMG I once scored a major fashion coup, over 15 years ago........it was a black suit, with tuxedo lapels with just a hint of satin on them......and an above-the-knee skirt.......made by Tahari. Originally it was around $800 :o then was half off that, then half off again......then there was this weekend where everything was an additional something-percent off, AND I had a coupon.....so I got the suit for around $125. Sounds like a lot......but I wore it to every formal occasion for nearly a decade (back when life was occasionally glamorous). You cannot imagine the compliments I got........because everyone would show up all sequined and spangled - and I was so proud in my extremely well-made, understated and very elegant black suit......friends called it my Magic Suit......... :rolleyes: and it really did have power.......

oh, to be young, eating gluten, and a statuesque size TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:angry:

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

oh dear, Sarah.......

let me clarify.

I would ONLY remember if you wore something really ghastly and wore it again, or REALLY outstanding (like a Chanel suit), and wore it again.

If you're anywhere in between those two, I would NOT remember, honest truth.

so sorry to have caused you such duress!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, now speaking of Coco Chanel, let's remember her theory, which was something like.....if a woman walks into a room with a very busy, showy, or crazily-patterned outfit, people will say "look at that dress..." but if she walks in, carrying herself with great posture and poise in something quite simple and understated, highlighting the figger or whatever, they will say "look at that WOMAN."

Go with teh basic black, I PROMISE you no one will remember.
