With the daisies

Post by Algernon Sydney is Dead » Mon Feb 03, 2014 7:05 am

He said he loved me and he planted Flowers in my name.
So, I kissed him until his toes curled. I'd loathed old Mrs. Flowers.

Awesome!
Given enough time, a hypothetical chimpanzee typing at random would, as part of its output, almost surely produce one of Shakespeare's plays. And if given enough time, a hypothetical iPod with the collected works of Enya, having an endless power supply and placed on shuffle will summon Kuthulu to end this realm of existence (and order 4,279 anchovy and peanut butter pizzas in the process). I think I would prefer Kuthulu over the anchovy...

I wrote a twabble! It's my first one ever. I guess I'll call it, Pride in the Pride

I had fame, pleasures, prowess, but not happiness. So, I asked the wisest lion how to be happy. He said, “Eat prey, love.”

You're welcome!

I like that better than the general "meditation music." Do you think this is an improvement?

Long ago, the Necronomican was torn up. Enya has found and recorded the pieces and plans to let shuffle get them in order.

Interesting poetic imagery.
I wonder how many people know that "Victor" is a leading brand name for a variety of critter traps.

I don't get it. Near as I can tell, the dude only ever did it with *one* woman, *one* time.
