    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

    I'd read Ken Russell's The Dirt Devils but only if its as dirty as it sounds.

    No.

    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

    Mwahahaha

    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?

    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?

    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

    Kwan
    Yagudin
    Kim
    Asada
    Ando
    Lambiel
    Chan
    Chanflating judge ()
    Savchenko and Szolkowy
    happy Virtue, pissed-off Moir
    Morozov
    or
    __________?

    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
    Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"

    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.

    worse:

    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?

    Orion's Belt
    The Pleiades
    Aquila
    Canis minor
    Ursa major
    Cassiopeia
    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?

    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?
