Re: About Interviews

Hmmmm

TH=SG

Somehow being accused of being a bored '13 year old girl in Missoula' (on the old forum) seems mild now.

Heh, heh, heh, heh

P.S. How is the rental market in the rest of the U.S. - for three women, a dog and a cat - should Katrina do a nasty on New Orleans?

Will be starting the drill - later today - bring in the outdoor furniture and babeque - along with 'doing the usual drill.'

Life outside the levee - can be fun in South Louisiana.

Speaking of goat poop - maybe someday we will need a glossary/definition section for this forum.

Uncle MicK: To my mind, Old_Rancher just about perfectly defined all forms of poop on a different thread. At least ALL those I might ever have any interest in--casually or otherwise. I also learned why near the end of a party only the brown M&Ms remain in the bottom of the bowl. It also explains why rock stars only like the bright green ones. Priceless!

Poor woman, all she wanted was to see if anyone would give interviews and all you boys give her is poop.

Hmmm... :|
Might I suggest a gigolo hat in order to fully play out your new role: It should have nice sheen on the exterior, a 2 1/2--3 inch brim that is dapper yet jaunty, and a cellophane (sp?) liner on the bottom side in order to prevent from 'you know who' any backsplash from damaging it. Of course, you may prefer the old grizzled gigolo look. That, too, has an appeal in some of the finer parenting circles. Best of luck fun.

As a former editor, I've always always loved punctuation (especially parentheses ).

The "my" in this statement is well understood, as are your frequently uttered "I"'s and "Me"'s, but the humble is incomprehensible, and the opinion is usually overstated, frequently, and of weak substance.

But do go on.

Actually (), I disagree with you. His "I" and "Me," or awareness-of-self, is so small as to be almost unidentifiable to known humans. But I do agree with you about the size of his "humble."

Maybe the h stands for something other than humble. Can anyone come up with a better word? honest? . . . helpful? . . . horrible? . . . head-case? . . .
