Transient, this Donna. Flits in and out like Puck.


message 3: by [deleted user] (last edited Apr 09, 2008 08:07AM) (new)

She flits, she floats
She flits, she floats, she fli-ies (Sound of Music-- off key, of course)

Donna, I do see you in many of my own haunts-- and I am seeing you in some of the new places I am lurking. I'm feeling the need for pastries-- want to share?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Throw the day old ones, sounds like good stress relief-- the target matters not.
Eat the fresh ones-- chewy, gooey, warm. MMMM, MMMMM, MMMMMMMMM :)


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Why, thank you :)

Oh that's it. Moominmama. We have Finnish friends and their language is laughably complex. How's that for a provincial statement?

Poor pooch!!


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

yes donna hope the pup gets better soon


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

i'm sure he will seem much better when you stop poppin pills, sleeping all the time, and staggering around and peeing

heehee i couldn't resist


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

I saw him as I was pulling out of your driveway. He was lecturing about "a-l-l-o-t" is giving time to something and "a space l-o-t" is doing/having much of something. I shook my head and blink-ed my eyes to make sure 'twas not my imagination running amok (as it sometimes does when I am pastry deprived). I waited until you were safely back in the abode, then made my own way home where I promptly fell asleep and dreamt of eating A LOT of pastries :)


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Do you have A LOT of weeds? My husband and I are working at pulling vines, ferns and other such detritus from around an oak tree in our yard. I called a momentary halt when I spied a slithery, slinky snake (of the garden variety-- but a SNAKE none-the-less). For when there are snakes, there is no Sarah.

Debbie (sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6387 comments Mod
Hey Sarah....no snakes AT ALL in New Zealand!!!!! And you guys....stop ganging up on NE...he might not talk to us anymore.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

And did you feel like singing?

Maria!
I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.
Maria!
I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I've found
How wonderful a sound
Can be!
Maria!

Debbie (sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6387 comments Mod
Don't confuse me!! I am trying to learn (by rote!)
How do you solve a problem like Maria
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down
How do you find a word that means Maria
A flibbertijibbet, a will-o-the-wisp, a clown.

Debbie (sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6387 comments Mod

Debbie (sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6387 comments Mod
Poor Groke! Were they that bad? How many were there? I prescribe a hot bath, a hot toddy and a hot man....in that order!! Can you sell styes, like warts? I know people who swear by selling warts to get rid of them!!! Classic psychosomatic reactions at work!! I think it is a medieval rural superstition that has somehow survived.

I used to get a recurring sty (I spell it without the "e") in my right eye about once a year all the way until my 20s. Now it appears only every 5 years or so (with certain comets and other celestial wonders). Hot wash cloths are nice, and eye drops.

Debbie (sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6387 comments Mod
You were brave!!! Fancy taking children (not your own) on a nature ramble! I know you had parental permission, but had you filled out your RAMS forms? Hmmmm? If one had drowned, or choked.....quelle horreur! (I hope you can detect the notes of sarcasm and exasperation in my voice)! We can't move anywhere with our students unless every t is crossed and i dotted (or is that the other way around?)! The paperwork takes longer than the trip.

Ken | 18485 comments Mod
In "teen talk," to say something is "sick" is to say it's wicked cool. (OK, and "wicked" is a New Englandism for mucho.)

It's a state secret (unless I'm downtown, in which case it's a town secret).

We no sooner get East of Oz back and we have to put an APB out for Donna.

Maybe if I post something in the Shakespeare thread, you think...?

Pic back to the Original. We all play with pics, then return to the original. Well, except for me.

Foreshadowing is a lovely thing (and who doesn't like snow THIS time of year... it appeals to the kid in us).
