: : has anyone else noticed that the word verifications on Blogger are less gobbledy-gookish these days and more like actual made up words? like linseff and onoin and troinus rather than lkdjfledkjfkdf. this pleases me. much like that wonderful book by Douglas Adams (alert: two Douglas Adams references in a week. something in the water) The Meaning of Liff which features words he created for all those little parts of life that don't currently have words, such as 'the cool side of the pillow on a hot summer night' and 'the little rubber nodules on the underside of the toilet seat'.
: : it's Sneak PEEK people, not Peak. please get it right.
: : i have a large list of important things to do. i am not doing them.
: : now that i knit socks, i need to learn how to darn. when i only ever purchased socks, i didn't darn, i tossed.
: : if you are a music teacher and you normally stand in front of and conduct your ten-piece string ensemble of year 8 kids, but then when they perform in the kindergarten garden for the entertainment of visitors and you introduce them and then walk away, they will not know how to keep time themselves, and Pachelbel's Canon will be a shamozzle because the cellos will go too fast, the violas will fade away to nothingness, the violins will flounder, no one will do the big breath in thing and take charge and they will all look wildly about for help, all the while playing on and on and on ... so next time, could you stay in front of them and wave your arms around for them to follow? pretty please? because otherwise the parent next to you will say 'that was hilarious!' which isn't really the desired outcome, is it? thank you
: : i have a cold. and i'm still not addressing the list.
