"Farm Fatale" does sound like a terrific book to read. Hope my brain remembers it the next time I check into Barnes and Noble... Does it come in paperback?

There you go again, ASp, repeating verbatim your same old song in six separate threads. If you can't have your way, you'll interrupt to poison any other discussion on this board. Spamming.

the person know as Keiva, who recently posted on this thread, was banned, for flaming.
he forced his way back into this forum by implied threats. this same person has also been know, for certain, to post under the names AphonicRants and KeivaCarpal.

The truth is not a flame, the truth is not spam
Go away, Keiva. You are not wanted here.

my other obsession

Keiva, go away. You are not welcome here.

Can you at least take this to I&A?
Answer: Nope. It belongs on all threads.

AnnaStrophic, I'm sorry, but no matter how much it hurt to have Keiva use the name AphonicRants, I refuse to believe that the pain comes anywhere near the pain of being raped. As a woman, I take offence, and so should you.

And now, can we please get back to the words? I'm done with wrangling and powerplays for the day; I'd be as mad as a hornet's nest , except that I'm as hungry as a bear and feeling daft as a dingbat after a day at work!

actually we could make it stop. here a plan, Nancy UNPLUG the computer, remove the modem. or better yet, get it out of your house. when he stops posting, we will stop pointing out he was banned and doesn't belong here. he forced his way back with threat.

he is behaving like a willfull spoiled child. treat him like one.

it is not our fault he lied and you lied. don't blame us. we are not the problem.

I've never entirely understood 'as safe as houses'. Yes, houses are meant to be stable and all that, but they do sometimes fall down. Guess it's just talking about as safe as can reasonably be expected.

How about "as cool as a cucumber" (was it here or somewhere else I read that it's been shown that the insides of cucumbers are always cooler than the ambient room temperature, at least until it gets stinking hot; that's way cool). And it has that lovely lilting alliteration.

As important as a fart in a firestorm

reminds me of:

Lost as a fart in a thunderstorm

(the "in a thunderstorm" bit is optional but effective )

I'm amazed that this appears tyo be a new one!
