"One more for the dyspeptic doc..."
Hey, no fair. I had to look up "dyspeptic" to know how badly I'd been insulted -- or even if I'd been insulted!
2. Of or displaying a morose disposition. - American Heritage Dictionary
Yep, that's me. Morose. I suppose it shows in my writing? One of those "between-the-lines" things? My daring to actually use smiley faces is nothing more than a transparent cover-up to mask the rage of insecurities buried deep inside?
:) :) :)
Anyway, it's "cheating" to use big fancy college words with us mere common folk. To be blunt, we expect less of you.
:) :) :)
BTW, I have a question about the third video. Which gender is it? It was tough to tell. Usually, you look for titty-bumps, but his/her/its dress/suit/bag didn't reveal much. Probably on purpose, I'm guessing, as his smart manager directs him to gear his act toward all three sexes.
:) :) :)
(I'm trying to get over my dyspepseousness -- and doing a damn fine job of it, I have to admit.)
Did I mention I bought a Flowbee? That's the haircutting thing that attaches to the vacuum cleaner. Worked terrifically, and I'm kicking myself (metaphorically, not dyspeptically) that I didn't buy one years ago.
In my case, I first ran the thing all over my head with the 2" extension, then used the angled 1"-1 1/2" extension on the sides, then the 1" extension around the neck and ears. If you like that cut-but-not-cut look, it's perfect. There's more info on my site if anyone's interested.
BTW, MHD, wasn't that web site great? I've been dying for an opportunity to use the 'Vomit' selection. I used 'Flower Power' on Ace's site the other day. Lots of potential. And so heartfelt! Thanks again for giving me such a spendid opportunity to use it!
:) :) :)
"I'm afraid I didn't visit the link."
Oh, you definitely want to check it out, it's hysterical. Here's my intro page to it.
Ace of Spades is redoing his web site, and, just to be silly, he posted a 'girlie' design, all done up in pink and cute kittens and the like. I promptly used the 'Flower Power' setting in the above site for the page and posted the link in his comments. Too funny.
"'irritable as if suffering from indigestion' was the definition in mind. you did after all..barf.
Oh. Damn. A 'physical feeling of unease' was what I originally associated with the word, but I didn't make the 'barf' connection. Ergo, that left me with 'morose' after I looked it up.
Well, I'm glad I'm not morose. Now I don't have to use so many smiley faces to cover up my raging insecurities -- or whatever it was I had. They're easy to forget if you don't jot them down.
Question: Was it spelled "Mindles" because that's the way a (truly) mindless person would spell it?
Or is your real name "Mindles", like "spindles"? And when I started calling you 'Mindy' when you first got here, I was correct?
Or is it that you're French and it's actually pronounced "min-dlay"?
Bonjour, mes amis! Mon nom est Mindlès!
You didn't want to use the accent mark because it looked pretentious, is that it? Well, that's why we've grown to love you. You add that certain 'rough-hewn' aspect to the site, that certain man-of-the-street feeling as the perfect counterbalance to Tiger's often lofty and elegant prose. That crude, down-to-earth quality that's so necessary to connect with the masses. No wonder Tiger brought you aboard. As they say, brilliance is its own reward.
Keep up the good work,
