Mary Poopins?

In order to fill in the space where a post containing something, anything, that I've produced or written should be... watch this.

Here's the Shining one that Monkey Monkey Monkey mentioned. that reminds me, I was shopping for presents last night and everytime Mooncar asked what I should get for someone I said, "Buy them a Monkey". It gets quite addictive after a while. Try it. OK, maybe that's just me.

Take: 91

That is so true! And it is amazing the power the music has, if there wasn't the music, how would we know how we are supposed to feel?

Well I have some holly nog here (thats egg nog flavored milk) and some rum for a party tomorrow. But I think I would be an alkie if I opened it now. Maybe moving around a little, say, washing dishes would help. Washing dishes, now THAT is scary!

Yup, the music is the clincher.

Holly Nog sounds a little wrong, mind you, anything containing rum is a 'little' wrong. Which of course is what makes it totally right :)

You should check out SafeT's blog Diana. Odo was so cute. Or it may just be that I'm biased towards Siamese cats cause we had one called Taasha when I was growing up, no, Odo IS really cute.

Diana, Siamese ARE really pretty but they are notoriously cranky little buggers. Occasionally you come across one that's just wonderful though. That was our Taasha. And it appears Odo was from the same mold.

I knew that about Siamese, but I didn't want to be inappropriate. I had a half siamese cat, it was meowy, without the pretty fur colors. And he never sang "We are SI-A-ME-EESE if you PLEE-EASE" the way all purebread siamese cats do.

Hahaha! Jin! Rookie mistake mate. It's because you don't initiate their compassion circuit. I find giving them a kick to their equivalent of the Frontal lobe tends to work.

l>t... I'm not sure what you're missing exactly. A Pom is another word for Englishman, in Australia it's usually preceeded with 'Whinging'.

If you dont get what the movies are, the first one is Mary Poppins (kids film) and the second one The Shining (a violent horror film) that have been re-cut to make them seem otherwise.

Holy frijoles! I didn't even think that the Amercoi's wouldn't understand those phrases/words.

Take the Mickey: Tease or make fun of.

Whinge: This is a fantastic word. It's to complain or whine, especially in an annoying or persistent manner. To call a mate a 'whinger' is almost like saying, 'Be a MAN!' You can really offend someone with it.

I tend to catch all your slang, even though I'm american, because your slang is practically the same as my husbands (aka "The Pom").

But to call someone a Gallah is awesome. It's actually a very pretty pink and grey bird that acts, well, like a Gallah. They're such larrikins. I remember during the morning in the kitchen of the house I grew up in the Gallahs would hang upsidedown off the guttering to look inside. They'd squwark and flap their wings and carry on like absolute loonies. They were actually looking at their own reflections in the windows acting as stoopid as poosible in the hope of attracting themselves as a mate. I should video them some time, although the only ones around here are feed in a park across they way. They're kinda quiet and boring when they're feeding, but they are pretty.

Then you get them to do something stupid like hold a gunnysack open while you say you are going to beat the bushes with a stick to flush out the snipes & you get them to imitate a snipe call, some kind of stupid whistle that you make up, to call the snipes...meanwhile as they are making fools of themselves, you are laughing your ass off far away.
