Re: Golden 2012-08-24

Respectfully, I disagree. I see a lot of uncertainty when M first approaches Shelly, and she seems a little taken aback with "I farted", but I think those words disarmed a lot of her fear: This is still Shelley, and Shelley is her friend. After that, I see no fear. There may well still be some unce...

... I'd hate to think Phix is going to be up in The Library alone, friendless ... That tends to happen when you start eating those around you, friend or not. Even Nudge may be a bit reluctant to be around her for a while. At least until Phix bathes and brushes her teeth. And take her blouse to the ...

I agree about the bomb, but did she really "clear" the air?

Re: Hidy

I'll settle for a car that can do the long highway stretches on its own and let me read a book, play iPod games, watch a movie, etc to help stay awake. I don't mind driving and I'm not asking for full autopilot, but a car that could get me to my exit on its own would be awesome. We do have somethin...

She may not have had the need or desire to eat at all while there. Consider that she's been told that as long as she stays there, she will not age . To me, that implies that normal metabolic processes have been ceased (bereft of life, she rests in peace. If she hadn't been nailed to the perch... So...

And our money is--ever so slowly and subtly--getting more colorful. But it was the Toonie I was referring to. I've just kept thinking of it as the doubloonie ever since I heard it called that a few years back. I find it amusing to read, while looking up the info previously linked to, that the Canad...

Well when you run around with loonies, you pick up the habit. Clink... I hope that last was a Canadian coin! CLINK [it's a "doubloonie"! Maybe a silver Spanish coin?] Actually*, there is no Canadian money called the doubloonie. But we do have the loonie, which may be what you referred to in the act...

I know that, and I already do, except when I forget... but some forums do that automatically, so you don't have to manually select to open in a new tab...
