    According to my horoscope, "Metaphysical studies will bring you great joy this year". Which, and you may not even believe this :)lol:, as if you wouldn't!!!!!!), is EXACTLY what I thought when I awoke this morning!!!!!!!!!!! Same sentiment, same words, even the same punctuation, other than where I had to correct it. But you can't expect astrologers to be grammar Nazis too!!!!!!!!!! They have far more important things to think about!!!!!! And now I'm off to the bookshop to buy a copy of 'Metaphysical Studies for the Under-Fives', as I think it's wise not to be over-ambitious when beginning a new venture!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or should I say "adventure"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! D'you get the joke? Venture-Adventure!!!!!! D'you get it now? Who needs sex? Well, sex is nice, but only if it's the METAPHYSICAL kind!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll have to go with Working Girl, partly because it's the only one of the five that I've ever seen, but also because Harrison Ford looks mighty fine without a shirt on. And so, for that matter, does Melanie Griffith. :grope: :)

    As I have mentioned before somewhere in this forum, up here in the lovely attic/spare bedroom/office, there is a large batik that portrays three differently-coloured ladies in various states of undress as they wash in a stream. And the golden lady has a particularly nice, erm, you know what I mean - one of those things; anyway I cannot think of the proper word for it, but she does have a particularly nice one. :grope:

    So, if you were in the same Sri Lankan market, and wanted one of these to gaze at lustfully, or just to brighten up the room, what colourway, as I believe the term is, would you like:

    Avocado/forest/lilac
    Seaside/sunshine/glowing embers
    Navy/raspberry/aquamarine
    Maroon/gold/silver
    Gold/silver/bronze
    Tangerine/scarlet/rose
    Salmon/beech leaves in May/eau-de-nil

    Sorry, I can't type out any more colours, as I'm getting a headache. And also, there seems to be a small group of people collecting outside the front door. Some of them look quite familiar; ah yes, I remember them now. OK, I'll go voluntarily this time, in order to prevent all that fuss. OK, I'm coming now. Don't be so impatient! Can't I even take a few items of clothing? :rolleyes:

    "Even the worst sex I've had is better than no sex at all"

    Disagree, but then I've had some terrible, almost unspeakable sex in my time, especially after I'd reached the big 6-0. Notice the skating reference!!!! As one of my best friends says, "Everything happens for a reason." And this is indeed a very wise maxim to get people through those hard times. Or at least it seemed so until I dropped a pan of spaghetti on my foot.


    Which image appeals more to your animal instincts:

    Evan Lysacek dressed in a daddy-long-legs costume
    or
    Evgeny Plushenko doing his 'Tribute to Barry Manilow's Nose' exhibition

    By the way, I heard on the Japanese news that one of Nobunari Oda's sons is now taller than Nobu!!! I expect they'll release a family photo soon. :)

    1) Navy/raspberry/aquamarine
    2) The former, but only metaphysically.

    worst things about a rainstorm:

    thunder/lightning
    flooding
    six-legged vermin seeking shelter in your home
    falling tree limbs
    power outages
    wetads massed outside like Hitchcock's birds

    Thunder and lightning are fun, flooding is a serious problem but not for me, power cuts are deeply aggravating, falling tree limbs are not good, I've never met any six-legged vermin (unless you're harking back to the previous question and thinking of Evan Lysacek, or else some genetically mutated rabbits), wetads stay in their lagoons since they're already wet. So I don't speak for anyone else here, but for me on my steep hill in rural England, the worst thing is a lengthy power cut. And obviously I realise that others are in a far worse situation. :(

    Do you write poetry:

    Yes
    No, but I used to
    No
    :rolleyes:
    Purple They fcuck you up, your mum and dad;
    They may not mean to, but they do. :(


    Stop fcucking crying, you silly cow. :rolleyes:

    No.

    In my homeland tree limbs do not fall (at least in my yard, no flooding, rarely have power outages, wetads do not live here, and thunder and lightening are beautiful...but deadly. The bugs do come out to play and I get grossed out.

    Humpback whales
    Killer whales
    Blue whales?

    1) Not counting bad song parodies, it's been half a lifetime since I've tried my hand at verse.
    2) Blue whales, siempre.

    ladybugs
    grasshoppers
    dragonflies
    lovebugs
    mantises

    IMO, you're about as far from being a silly cow as it's possible to be.

    Susan. Or Susannah.

    The butterflies and Harold Skimpole share in common an insect nature and a freedom from the daily grind of workaday existence; the latter is the kind bequest of Skimpole's fellow human beings. However, mankind will not deny Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies.

    - Skimpolism and plagiarism. How attractive in one on the cusp of 32, f_d. :rolleyes:
    - Buh.
    - Buh?
    - "Abou Ben Adhem" sucks and all of your friends are purple.

    St. Elmo's Fire, not because I've seen it, but because "Man in Motion" is utterly cheesetastic.

    80s hair or 80s clothing?

    I can't remember whether I have or not. I read That Was Then, This Is Now cover to not-so-distant cover. Does that count? :eek:

    S. E. Hinton or Judy Blume?

    S.E. Hinton because I read The Outsiders about 12 times. That Was Then, This is Now was week in comparison.

    Judy Blume?
    Adolescent books
    or
    Adult trash?

    The children's books--Blubber, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing--and the adult trash. I should've read the teenage stuff, but didn't.

    Madeleine L'Engle:

    - wonderfully imaginative children's author
    - precious and pretentious hack whose popularity rested on adolescent fantasies of middle-class gentility
    - an author I barely know from Avi, but whose name I wish I had
    - purple It (not IT)
