<BTW, Haggis, last time you made reference to the earth's shape, you said it was seven-sided, not five {in "Welcome to 2003", a response to HenryRhenals, as I recall.} Has something catastrophic ocurred in the interim? Have two sides broken off and are now free-floating in the trackless void of space?>

"features" that were the envy of the Kingdom and always the subject of any discussion among the envious and jealous, a group that, in all fairness although there was nothing fair here, was most of the ladies and at least 10% of the men – if you believe that recent poll and, as I mention to her next door but two. ”How can they just blurt out some of the things they do today is beyond me” You certainly didn’t hear that kind of language when I was a young lady and speaking of young ladies – although you have to stretch the definition of “young AND “lady” when discussing Rapunzel...or was it Han-sel??

It’s just terrible the way she pushes those “features” around. If you ask me I would say to her “Pride goeth before ……”

OT..OT, man you got a wicked memory, I don’t remember ever using that gig before. It was a favorite goofy discussion starter used by a friend years ago and it just stuck with me. Actually I did think “Was it a six or seven sided cube?” when I was writing it.

Ya know, scary, memory enhanced people like you have a habit of meeting with a bad end, if you take my meaning….
