Re: Millye and the bats

It seems like you're calling Willie Misconi and Minnesota Fats bats. Bats invited themselves in ... and signed the wall. It's strange that you continue to call your mother by her first name. It seems to imply a lack of affection between you. If that is your intention, it doesn't come across strongly...

Re: note to a poet on a transatlantic flight

Note to the Beluga You probably don't know yet - they've made your likeness in plush. I've often thought of having that done, myself. It would be nice to have a warmer, fuzzier version to bring to parties. Cate said you might be in the frigid waters off the Northern coast, which reminds me - you ma...

What a gorgeous picture!
Funny you should say that. I've seen versions of this pic with and without the Not-Cohen guy.

Is that LC?

There's a smiling guy in the background of this pic who sort of vaguely looks like Mr. Cohen. Can someone say for sure who it may be?

Re: Book of Mercy #29-40

Mary, Yeah, I first read that when I was about 10. I know you mean well, and thanks for that, but it goes against just about everything I was trying to say. I want to be responsible for myself, and I don't want a god that takes that away from me. I don't want for what I feel are my abilities to lear...

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I only just today realised/concluded that the A---s are Angels. Someone else probably suggested it to me long ago, and I disregarded it, but today that's what they are to me.

Re: Book of Mercy #29-

" Why do you welcome me? asks the bitter heart. Why do you comfort me? asks the heart that is not broken enough. " Leonard Cohen ...and Manna says That is I. That is an odd/fascinating combination Manna; bitter and unbroken. Is there something missing in your life?? (I don't expect an answer to thi...

The circular eye of the quailfish blinks a strobe beneath the water's surface pleading, "Notice me, notice me, I'm clever!" The stream bounces like a Las Vegas toddler happy, wavy and sparkly. The fish - a sticky toy in a toddler's hand dragged along because it's MINE. The eye of the quailfish issue...

Of course Ballyslashguttery exists, and also Tom Guinan. I believe it because you've told me so, and you've never given me any reason to disbelieve the things you tell me.

One particularly needy mate has informed 3 times that this has gotten responses, and that those responses have been ignored by me. I'm sorry I've ignored all the things people have done with this. From my pov, I gave up any responsibility when I posted it in this one-off, rushed, giving up way. I no...

Re: tic tacs

That's really wonderful, Cate. I've been learning about & dabbling in making amuse bouche. Amuse bouche means "mouth amuser" or something close enough, and in accordance with the French way of life, it is a bit of oral teasing meant to show off the style/prowess of the chef before the meal. In a fan...
