Yeah, I know my rhyme lacks meter, but hey, I took the letters MARILYN VOS SAVANT to sixteen places

If you took MARILYN VOS SAVANT to 16 places and they wouldn't let her in, themilum, it isn't because your rhyme lacks meter.

Maybe it just lacks class.

Really. I don't like the word either, Jackie, but (may I use "but"?) I took the rhyme where it led me.

Now tell me...why didn't you simply send me a personal note informing me of your displeasure? It would seeem to me to be the proper thing to do.

Hey grapho, go take a hike.

why didn't you simply send me a personal note Because* my attention was called to it by someone else it offended; not the one with whom you have been arguing so much. I declare, I've pretty much gotten to where I don't look at anything either of you post.
*I see now that I should have sent a PM. My apologies; and, thank you.

Far be it from me to even think of criticizing anyone for writing whatever their muse leads them to, but. Since we have had a lot of new people--oh, I came across about four new ones just reading this category last night: a bleated (Ack--make that belated! ) welcome to you all--let me say again that I think it would be nice if we all kept in mind that we have no way of knowing who will read what we post, and therefore no way of knowing what might offend. It would be different if this were a porn site, or any site where that type of language has been common; people would know then what to expect. Here, by and large, we have managed to stay at what in my mind is a level up from that. Quite likely a poetry site would have welcomed it and shock would have come only at someone complaining about it. Down and dirty has its place, and can be a lot of fun; but so far this hasn't been the place for it. That could change, I suppose, but I'd regret it very much.

Milo, I *am impressed. Does this make me your friend?

Jackie, thank you once again for the equilibrium you inject to keep this message board on an even keel. I must say, though, that themilum didn't actually write the word, he left it as xxx, so as the good old boys in the Order of the Garter would say:

Honi soit qui mal y pense.

musick, come here a minute--I have something for you...

At least you-all didn't get on me for bleating, she said sheepishly.
Anna--thank you, and you're welcome!

First AnnaStrophic said...

"Milo, I *am impressed. Does this make me your friend?"

I was gonna reply...

No, AnnaStrophic, friends don't become friends because they are impressed, friends become friends because they are kind.
Thank you for the kindness that is expessed in your post.


But before I could post this etaoin hurriedly said...


themilum didn't actually write the word

err, nope, that was after the edit, latecomer...

So AnnaStrophic then said...

Oh, I see now. Thanks, eta.

Oh well...I've got three goldfish, they got too big for their bowl so I built them a little pond outside in the yard . Their names are Tony, Ed, and Shirley. Shirley and Tony pick on Ed sometimes because he is the runt. I am afraid that a big stray cat that I've been feeding will oneday eat Ed. The stray cat won't let me pick him up. His name is Rudy and he won't eat anything but Purina Cat Chow; the blue box with the picture of three white kittens eating Purina from a big bowl.

I, uh,...Hey! I got a idea! Hey musick you are kind. Will you be my friend? Guess what? I found a great search engine that can search 100,000,000 decimal places of Pi in no time flat. Man, we could have lots of fun finding telephone numbers and looking up birthdates and everything. Here it is -- friend!
