No good American ever orders a Bud.
Joining the against crap commercial beers. If I wanted to drink urine I'd aim upward.
better topic for poetry:
penises or vaginas
My first next opus:
Ken Russell's The Dirt Devils
Symposium of the Vulvae
lavender-purple you don't do this kind of humor very well
ETA: Okay, that really wasn't funny at all, but rather .
I see. Do you know any vaginal limericks?
I'd read Ken Russell's The Dirt Devils but only if its as dirty as it sounds.
Selling one's body for $$$$:
acceptable only if you're good at it or ultra-sin
I really don't know. It strikes me as a context-dependent sort of thing. You can read these and other profound moral insights in my new book
What's Wrong with Chaos?
What's Wrong with Chaos?
I'll go with that title, then. I just hope no one confuses it with Thomas Frank's book about right-wing populism in the US.
Ludlum. Did I mention that First Among Equals is a terrible novel?
Miki Ando's best-ever competitive performance:
2001-2002 JGP FS
2004 Worlds SP
2007 Worlds FS
2009 Worlds FS
2009-2010 GPF SP
2010 Worlds FS
2010-2011 Japanese Nats FS (my choice)
2011 4CCs SP
But it won the Booker Prize!
I don't know how you remember all of these, f_d. So I'm afraid I cannot answer, and will go away to have a bath and sulk. And as I can find no good sulking graemlin, I shall sulk even more.
So I guess the judges read the one with Labour's Raymond Gould becoming Prime Minister in the very last sentence (as opposed to the Tories' Simon Kerslake).
Well, someone has to correct judgejudy and his pseuds in the Trash Can.
Let's see...this board needs a rainbow smiley, a sulking graemlin, and what else?
Beating dead horse graemlin
Diasuke Takahashi graemlin?
The vomit graemlin would be removed from the board within hours of its introduction.
A Takahashi graemlin would be a welcome addition to the board, however.
other possible graemlins
Chanflating judge shuffle
Savchenko and Szolkowy
happy Virtue, pissed-off Moir
I don't even understand this. Perhaps you have read it yourself, or else you know something worth knowing about British politics that I don't. Either way, I can feel myself slipping into giga-sulk mode, so I will disappear for half an hour and think bad thoughts about you. Also, after having broken off my engagement to siouxdonym yesterday because he drinks American Budweiser, I shall also reconsider my engagement to you. As elucidated by the great Welsh singer Celine Jones, "What's love got to do with it?"
Shower with fragrant shower gel
Shower with shower gel that's fragrant in a manly way
Bath with perfumed oils, luxurious bubbles, champagne, chocolate and waterproof Pride and Prejudice
Get in bath, wash all over, get out again
Just go and do it NOW
Archer's gimmick with First among Equals was to use two different endings. Whether it was a matter of one for the hardcover, another for the paperback, or else in random fashion I do not know. I'm usually not so obnoxious when it comes to spoilers, but there you are.
Well, if our engagement is broken off, I'll just have to go to Switzerland to press my suit with Tina Turner or Denise Biellmann. Or I'll just go there and drink hot cocoa or something.
Bath and shower at the same time. Just put up laminated posters of nature scenes and pretend you're near a waterfall.
American cheese or American beer?
Ah well, he was a clever one, wasn't he? Always at least two steps ahead of the reader. What a shame he got sent to jail; it breaks my heart to think how he suffered.
Um, I don't think I have ever seen American cheese in the shops here. There are rather a lot of good European cheeses, you see, so...... as for American beer, I think the best one is Jack Daniels. I'll spare you the quote from someone famous whose name escapes me when discussing the difference between Czech Budweiser and American Budweiser. And in all fairness it should be remembered that the Czech Republic has no Grand Canyon. So everything evens out in the grand scheme of things, which of course does not exist. At this point f_d sends an urgent PM to Sparks and siouxdonym to discuss OP's state of mind and whether anything can be done from thousands of miles away.
How many of these partial or total constellations can you recognise?
Other (single stars are allowed too if you're not very familiar with the night sky )
I adored American cheese well into my twenties. It's foul.
Orion is the only constellation I can ever recognize.
Uranus or Neptune?
P.S. I have yet to receive the urgent PM. I'll go take a shower, instead.
Monterey Jack cheese
Perhaps you should send an urgent PM to siouxdonym about both me and orientalplane, as I chuckled at that paragraph.
Monterey Jack cheese
Mercury or Pluto?
Mercury (that was beloved Diego's middle name)
My Dad likes Pinot Grigio.
crangrape or cranapple?
Claudius, though the Cinema Snob's walk-through "review" of Caligula is very funny.
the Lighthouse of Alexandria
the Hanging Gardens of Babylon?
(lifted from a facebook discussion)
What does one wear when it's hot as fried hell outside?
- clear slide mules, 2000 SPF, and a smile
- prawn earings and cockatail sauce filled ramikin necklace
- jus nekkid
seems happy, so great quantities of mustard and a pair of sunglasses should do nicely.
How threatening does the sky have to look before you decide to go inside and stop swimming or sunning?
- If it's even light gray all over, I'll go in, as I hate even to be sprinkled on.
- There have to be a lot of dark gray clouds and thunder in the distance.
- Once the lightning precedes the thunder by less than ten seconds, I go indoors.
- Swimming during a thunderstorm is fun!
None of the above as I rarely let the sun hit me and only go out if it sprinkles
More annoying to you:
Lipinski's roller Axel
Zhang's mule kick
Nakano's wrapped leg
Zhang's mule kick, by some way.
Zhang's pearl spin
Nakano's donut spin
BBQ pork chops
How much would you be willing to pay for figure skating classes?
New Scientist says that dark clouds do not appear that way because they contain more rain.
It's late here, but I could've sworn that this said, "How much would you be willing to pay for figure skating cheese?"
And your answer?? (to both questions )
Who gets bitched around more:
Arsenio Hall or Madonna
My ignorance says that they do.
Twelve minutes in, I'd say Arsenio.
ETA: She's right about the couches.
How important is patriotism on a scale of 1-5?
(-) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (+)
Re: #559 - ribs
How important is internationalism on a scale of 1-5?
(-) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (+)
should i get one of these to keep Beau-beau company?
Yes, then post a 552-hour video of its howls.
prettier: cursive or manuscript?
If its howling for that long then somethings wrong.
Manuscript....but only if its carved on vellum
Part un. Should I name my new ebony German Shepard Hatchibono?
no, Hatchinomo is better
Part deux. As a residual energetic affect of continuous MindMelds with bo-san, I suddenly recollected all the names of my now deceased pet ostriches I had as a child. Which of them is your favorite?
Cleopatra (She was the of the bunch)
Dafni (I heard the name from watching Some Like it Hot. Plus I thought she had a goofy face just like Jack Lemmon)
Eternity (The tiniest and most sickly. Named after the tacky and uberdramatik perfume commercials of its namesake. these ads always made my mom laugh)
Tarzan (athletic and pretentious medium community member. VERY MUCH resembled Firebird Evan Lycacek. )
Guapo (A struthio equivalent to Manollo, the ill-fated side-kick to Tony Montana. A brutal kick to the chest from another ostrich eventually ended his life....more to infection rather than the injury.)
Winston (the most savvy and intelligent of the bunch. learned how to peck his way out of their acre and a half large ostrich pen one morning.....after which he would continue to stage escape attempts numerous times throughout his life. Also has the distinction of being the only one to successfully peck sioux-pups hand. And yes it hurt and I have the scar to prove it.
Hanky (his face seemed somewhat hickory compared to the others...)
Austin (had the prettiest dark feathers of the bunch )
Bossy Ossy Number 9 (grouchy and bossy old man ostrich...and my personal childhood favorite. At that age and at that height, keeping him was like having my own personal Tyrannosaurus )
Well, it could always be a much shorter clip in a loop.
never done it
Strictly for fun.
Whose your 2nd favorite ostrich?
Probably Cleopatra, then Tarzan, then Austin.
It's just been announced that Akiko Suzuki's 2013-14 FS music will be from The Phantom of the Opera:
I'm taking the wait-and-see approach.
purple angel of muzak
Akiko is musical. The normal expectations of musical choice simply do not apply to her. Besides she has a track record of showing up with choreographically well adapted musicals.
Same question + Your thoughts on her use of Hymne a L'amour? (is this the same music Maria Butrskya used? )
I think it might actually be an instrumental version of this. And what you said.
Akiko's West Side Story LP
her Fiddler on the Roof LP?
Separate names with a comma.
