But sadly not into mirrors.

...never trusted mirrors. I know, they APPEAR to be a true reflection but I wonder...

Says the man who didn't even leave his house after being offered the sharings of a when offered a whole roast chicken nice bread and salad.

I was busy watching adverts for "The Core."

"I have a grebe perched upon my bust of Pallas, just above my chamber door. I THINK it's Pallas. It's so covered with grebe shit, it could be Plato."


But, Zen, as a colonial, don't you think that the LOON, the LOON, yes, the LOON, should be the star of the show here, not its hairdo'd cousin the grebe???!!! The Loon is the pinnacle of Nature ... for its call, its beauty ... and the fact that it is so heavy-boned and so badly put together that it takes half an hour to get airborne... makes it just so ... magical. It's nature's version of the Sinclair ZX81.

Mmmm ... loon

Loons scare me.

They ain't fit ta eat, neither.
They taste like bald eagles.

And they taste like Quorn.

Matt (Matt), Thursday, 27 March 2003 03:13 (sixteen years ago) link

And Quorn tastes like egg

Lynskey (Lynskey), Thursday, 27 March 2003 13:10 (sixteen years ago) link

No wonder they taste funny ... the SOUND funny! That's part of their charm! I have always loved them ... ever since that once-cool track by 808 State.

Pacific State?

Lynskey (Lynskey), Friday, 28 March 2003 02:47 (sixteen years ago) link

There are no Pacific States. The most pacific state is perhaps Minnesota, and that has an ex-WWF wrestler for a governor. Sorry!

Pooster (pooster), Saturday, 29 March 2003 19:39 (sixteen years ago) link

But they do a damn fine LOON.

I'm more of a Widgeon kinda guy.

Steamed Surf Scoter for me. Mmm beaky.

Wasn't that a single by Hanson?

Lynskey (Lynskey), Monday, 31 March 2003 10:48 (sixteen years ago) link

"Single" being the operative word. I used to fancy them rotten ... specially the 9-yr-old. But where the hell did they go to? I suppose it might be more than tricky to find out ... because if you went: "Are you Hanson?", they'd probably say: "Are you askin'?"

AR(dry retching)GGGH! Can't get it out of my head now! Doo-wap, doobedee-do-wap (doo-eey-oo-wap), doo-wap, doobedee-do-wap (doo-eey-oo-wap). You are all sods. Why can't the whole world just go back to the Bonzos and have done with it?

i'm not sure if the homophony with "greeb" as short-form for "grebo" is a positive or not tbh

"greeb" mutated into "greb" eventually tho
