confess, did you like that?
It was okay/nice - I prefer your 50 sec. poems.
I liked your after discussion better.
why?
I did like the twist, I also liked the vagueness of what N's disappointment might be.

It’s like one of those pictures with just dots in it. You see a mother nursing a baby and your spouse sees a stripper and a pole, so you both squint harder trying to figure out who’s right, then one of you notices the title ‘Salvation’ and in each of your minds you have been proven correct – okay it’s not really like that, but it does leave many possibilities. Is he disappointed because she’s nice and N was hoping for naughty? Was N was hoping for a reason not to like her? Why?…
The example I gave from 1000 Kisses is not particularly helpful as that song's strength is surely in the wonderful moody atmosphere of the song.
? okay I hope this is an example of, "Ooh, I don't really understand that but I bet it's ironic" ?

This post of yours ended rather flatly .....
Dame Llon,

I respectfully submit that, although it is true that the ending of his lordship's post undercuts the wryness, even slyness, perhaps, of the post itself (given the exalted nature of his visit to Ireland, and all that this implies relative to the post to which he is replying, etc.), still, his “Lord of the Dance” sign off is only flat if one doesn't notice how it invokes that awful song (... the "I am the lord of the dance, said he" tripe), a song that, once invoked in a singular moment of distinctly deflated seeming recognition, we are then forced to have to make the considerable effort it takes to wipe the nagging sing-song loop entirely from our our now free-thinking hindered minds. Of course, knowing his lordship, he might in fact appreciate such appraisal. Nevertheless, this might indicate that it's something other than "flatness" that is at issue here... unless, of course, one forgets about the song, in which case I entirely agree.

I was, of course, referring to Michael's hanging sentence.
He was so much surprised not to see tinderella53, that for the moment he quite forgot how to write good English. :)

Tragic, indeed, but does that mean he can't complete his sentences either?

Extra, Extra.....

Lord M visits Niagra.

After a brief spell in Ireland, the renowned Lord M continues his journies to Canada in search of his mo jo. Seen flying off the falls in his learned gown, he reminds the residents of a white owl as he has forgotten to remove his wig. Some claim he went down the Falls erect.
