      Couldn't hear the whole thing, but I liked what I heard. The rest will have to wait 'til I get Home Sweet Home. Thanks for the new tunes!

      Hey justin/vapor! So you shortened your screen name huh? What is your hang up with the word "racist"? As I recall, the comments made were more stereotypes than anything, maybe you skipped English comprehension??

        I thought that's what we were doing. I was anyway. :D

        He's just one of those sad, pathetic, poorly hung people who think they can build themselves up while tearing others down. He has no idea the bond that can be created when a group of people like us get together and care, love and trust each other. Sadly, he never will.

    Good day everyone... it's manicotti, meatballs, and mini-cheesecakes for lunch.

    I'm so glad that I'm going to Morris Dance practice tonight.

    November 9, 2011 at 12:41 pm |
    • MicheleG™

      Morris Dance? Do you participate in a Renaissance Faire? One of my daughters did that for a while several years back.

      November 9, 2011 at 12:51 pm |
      • Truth TM@MicheleG, AleeD

        Participating in renaissance fairs is a great way to spend a day with a knight.

        November 9, 2011 at 12:55 pm |

        nice play on words! I want both a day and a night with my knight..................

        indubitably. My kind of "Morris Dance"..............yowza!

      Hi! Sounds like a good lunch. Is Morris Dance class similar to a class taken at Arthur Murray's dance school?

  5. Ms. Grammar

    I want one cup of each type of coffee mentioned on that mug. Need ALL the caffeine I can get, today.

    November 9, 2011 at 10:44 am |
    • MicheleG aka coffee tourist

      isn't cafe latte just coffee with milk? And can you describe exactly what espresso and cappuccino are? I've never had any of these.

      November 9, 2011 at 11:01 am |
      • Ms. Grammar

        Caffe latte (italiam) is like cafe au lait (french); half espresso and half hot milk. Cappucino is a shot (or double) of espresso with steamed and frothed milk added. Sometimes a sprinkle of cinnamon or chocolate is put on top, but most purists enjoy it undecorated. Espresso is a very darkly roasted and finely ground coffee. It makes a very intense cup of coffee. Not bitter; just super coffee-ish. Interesting trivia point; the darker the roast of coffee, the less caffeine it contains. It "burns" off in the roasting process. Class dismissed. :)

        November 9, 2011 at 11:26 am |
      • MicheleG™

        I will have to try the latte. I put too much heavy whipping cream in my chocolate coffee as it is. So I will go "all the way" with this one, soon.

        November 9, 2011 at 12:40 pm |
    • MicheleG™

      I'm hoping for descriptions that will make me drool uncontrollably.

        Not that someone on staff behind the scenes could modify the code so that suspect letter strings could be allowed if included in a larger word. Can you say "context?"

        There are ways to handle the code, and program for exceptions so that there would be a set of acceptable words.

        Please remember that you and Miss Saigon have been banned from the lounge due to your after-hours "recreational" activities.

      • AleeD@Sir Bid, Truth(TM) & QOE

        Sadly the space in the dungeon that was reserved for the "recreational" recliner has taken up by the barber chair I had installed & bolted to the floor. ~_~ I've got contractors coming in this weekend to construct the separate, keypad controlled (love that word) entrance to the dungeon. That should keep the riffraff, aka Just-in, out. The existing entrance will be guarded by the (soon-to-be negotiated) offspring of Evil Grin's pet armored monitor ... as soon it is acquired from the breeder.

        SssssssssCRACK! I'll be guarding it in the meantime. ~_~

    Good morning everyone!

    Don't know what they were thinking back at the cafe, but they dumped a large amount of chocolate into my hot chocolate... A LOT of chocolate... Hee hee hee hee~

    • AleeD@DJCP

      Mornin' Deej! Ever try cinnamon in your (amped up) chocolate? I love it brewed in my coffee.
      The time change is keeping my caffeine from kicking in. Got anything in your muzica li-berry that's a heart-pounding motivator?

      November 9, 2011 at 10:46 am |
      • Queen of Everything@AleeD

        I totally misread that and thought you wrote "heart-pounding vibrator". Tazer's latest blog post has sent my mind back to the gutter from whence it came.

        November 9, 2011 at 10:25 am |
      • Sir Biddle@AleeD

        I continue to push the envelope as that is my general nature. Maybe a random word dropped into a post will keep the modbots busy, then again if it is a common word used in daily langauge, whats the harm. At the end of the day a male chicken really is a cock if you want to get into the fine detail of our language. Maybe where spatchcock derives from?
