Wysiwyg, if you are game, can I play?

What?!

That wasn't the first time I've gursted, nor will it be the LAST.

Reminds me of that old joke....

A hunter is walking through a forest when he comes across a beautiful naked women sitting on a tree stump. He looks her up and down, and a wide grin spreads across his face.

"Are you game?" he asks.

"Sure am big boy", she replied, stretching luxuriously.

So he shot her.

-------------------

Dang. Can't figure out how to squeeze a "LAST" in there. Oh look! I just did!

And THAT reminds me of that old joke:

And for the life of me I can't think of how to work a LAST into this post.

Oh look! I just did!

Posted by: wysiwyg | 07:20 PM on January 12, 2005

;) I'll bet anything that isn't the last time we here it, either. :D

or hear it? ;D (are finals over yet, darlin?)


*hugs all lasters, just cuz*

Neo, the statute of limitations for blogging allows me to use a lame joke every 2 years. I personally think it should be more often than that, particularly as I'm becoming less sharp as I get older. So you're right, it won't be the LAST time.

Yep, Cyn, or hear it. Saw it as SOON as I clicked post, but that was a moment too late. Semester is over, though I've still another paper to submit; just can't seem to get motivated.

Darlin' Wysi, do you REALLY think you didn't use the joke in the interim? That's ok; somethings improve with time and use.

However, I've discovered that without my whetstone, I'm no longer sharp either.

*borrows a LAST from LAST year sometime to complete this comment*

I used the joke in the LAST two years?!?

Oh dear. The memory is obviously going along with the sharpness.

But then, that's the advantage to old age - everything seems so new.

That's the LAST time I try to be a smart alack! I found the joke Dec 17 2004 and Jan 12 2005, but not since then. So you were right, Wysi and I was wrong. Not the first nor the LAST time that has happened.

Feeling nostalgic. I miss KingW, I miss Marvin. I miss gursting. And it won't be the last time I say that, I'm sure.

Feeling nostalgic. I miss KingW, I miss Marvin. I miss gursting. And it won't be the last time I say that, I'm sure.

But you don't miss the real LASTER - so be it - sleep lightly, don't answer the phone or door at night and whatever you do do not be the LAST one to...

... do not be the LAST one to... turn out the light?
... do not be the LAST one to... give you a passionate smooch? (Lips Apart, SMOOCHes Dave D. Tantalizingly - still waiting for my hat and whistle, Dave D.!!)
... do not be the LAST one to...say goodnight?

...as the LAST minutes tick away on another year of LASTing....

Yay!

I'm FIRST, to wish the LAST thread, and fellow LASTers, a very happy, and hopefully LASTing, birthday!

*cracks the champagne and lets off a few party poppers to generate a festive effect*

Wysi, darling, you're supposed to pop the champagne. What are we going to do with this cracked bottle?

Ohhh, pour it into these crackpots!

*pours a round*

Happy Birthday, First thread! You've LASTED well, lo these many years!

*kisses all the LASTERS, even those who don't come 'round any more*

And they said it wouldn't last, hah!

Actually, they said Dave D wouldn't LAST, didn't they? Well, they are one for two, anyway.....

*Waves to the Lastlings*

*emerges from blurkdom*

Happy LASTaversary everyone!

(and thanks for the reminder, neo!)

Huh!

The LAST time I wuz here, I din't notice kisses frum neo' ... er NEbuddy else ... mebbe I'll hafta check back in more often ...

i hope this isn't the LAST "happy anniversary!" i can wish to this thread.

*feels honored to be able to post as an MBE LP*

*bows humbly to dave*

*no, not that dave*

:)

Happy Anniversary! to the LAST thread and all the LASTers:)

10:14pm PST, 6/22/07 (jus' sayin;)

Amazing how long this has LASTed.

Dave D, you missed our anniversary!

*sniff* I knew it was too good to LAST.

Since Dave D. has obviouslygiven up, I hereby declare myself Queen of the LASTERS, Champion of the LAST place, King of the Hill, Top of the Heap, etc. So be it!

...until of course the next person comes along and declares himself King of the LASTers, Champion in LAST place and Top of the Hill and King of the Heap.

*pushes Wysi off*

There's only room one for one on the top, Wysiwyg. The LAST thing you'll do is usurp my rightful place.

*throws down gantlet, planning to boot Wysi if he bends over to pick it up*

*eyes the gauntlet*

*balances his chances*

*eyes the gauntlet again*

*re-evaluates and gets realistic*

*Builds a new hill which is just a little taller than Neos and climbs up onto it*

This is a MUCH better hill than that LAST heap I was on, and the view is SO much better!

Wysi, Wysi, Wysi, you are trying to lure me off my Heap so that you can come and steal it! 'Twon't work.

*throws an early firecracker at Wysi's heap, bLASTing it to smithereens*

My Heap is the only Heap still standing. If you want to be King of the Mountain, you'll have to come try to take this one. Oh, and look, the gauntlet is still here!

*swipes one lil teaspoon of lastdirt from Wysi*

*swipes one lil teaspoon of lastdirt from Neo*

*swipes one lil teaspoon of lastdirt..........*

and first to say this on the LAST thread again this year!!


♪HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!♫

thank you for the many laughs and special memories

DANG! Cyn trumped me again, despite having the advantage of the time difference.

I knew there was something I had to do LAST night.

*kicks his birthday reminder system, which slinks off into the corner whimpering piteously*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE D!

...and a happy 4th of July for tomorrow.

*sighs in memory of all the really GOOD fireworks that you used to be able to buy when I was growing up, but sadly no longer*

Did someone say give up? Did I give up after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no - LAST.

Two LASTs in a row, I'm on a roll in my role doing what I do best. So you wanabees go do that voodoo that you do so well!

First by birth, LAST by choice.

Hate to thwart the third LAST lucky, DD, but you know me. Or you should by now.

And I thought it was the Russians that bombed Pearl Harbour. Just goes to show I should have spent more time awake during history classes at high school. Thanks for setting me straight though.

And to return the favour, here's something I bet you didn't know about the Great Wall of China, brought to you by an Australian telco...

*notices that Neo has been distracted for the LAST week by Cyn stealing parts of her heap*

*sneaks over and grabs the gauntet and scuttles back to safety*

Not quite sure what I'm going to DO with a gauntlet, but its mine now.

I cry foul! I was out of town! You can't steal a woman's gauntlet when she is out of town! It simply isn't done! *sneaks over, scuttles Wysiwyg and steals what's left of his mountain*

*steals a few spoonfuls of heap back from Cyn as well*

Pearl Harbor got bombed? I thought ol' Pearl was a teetotaler. Still getting bombed sounds like a great idea. *passes around the margaritas*

And Dave D, my darlin', you may choose to be LAST, but that doesn't MAKE you LAST you know, no more than choosing to grow wings will make you fly. Or no more than choosing to be King of the Castle will make you so. 'Cause that's me.

(and if that sounds disrespectful to the men who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor, it is most certainly not meant that way; I hold them in the highest regard and so I apologize!)

Well, neo, I can't help that you were away LAST week, an unattended gauntlet is an unattended gauntlet, and finders-keepers applies to that situation I'm afraid.

*imports a large pile of stones and a team of stone masons*

I've decided that you can keep your heap. I'M going to built a castle and be king of THAT. Which, of course, leaves you in a different role.

*flips through JC Penny catalog, perusing rascal outfits he might gift neo with*

*crowns Wysi*

(I miss KingW.)

By the way, this is the kind of crown I meant:

crown (kroun)
v. crowned, crown·ing, crowns
v.tr.

9. Informal To hit on the head.

oh. And LAST.

Neo, neo neo.

Nice try, but using obscure dictionaries to find even more obscure interpretations of the word "crown" in order dodge the fact you annointed me King of the Castle just doesn't cut it.

Here's the definition from a truely respected dictionary, and nowhere do I see any reference to hitting people over the head. I particularly like the bit "...especially as a reward of victory or mark of honorable distinction...", and "...imparts beauty, splendor, honor, dignity, or finish...":

Crown \Crown\ (kroun), n. [OE. corone, coroun, crune, croun, OF. corone, corune, F. couronne, fr. L. corona crown, wreath; akin to Gr. korw`nh anything curved, crown; cf. also L. curvus curved, E. curve, curb, Gael. cruinn round, W. crwn. Cf. Cornice, Corona, Coroner, Coronet.]

1. A wreath or garland, or any ornamental fillet encircling the head, especially as a reward of victory or mark of honorable distinction; hence, anything given on account of, or obtained by, faithful or successful effort; a reward. ``An olive branch and laurel crown.'' --Shak.

They do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. --1 Cor. ix. 25.

Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. --Rev. ii. 10.

2. A royal headdress or cap of sovereignty, worn by emperors, kings, princes, etc.

Note: Nobles wear coronets; the triple crown of the pope is usually called a tiara. The crown of England is a circle of gold with crosses, fleurs-de-lis, and imperial arches, inclosing a crimson velvet cap, and ornamented with thousands of diamonds and precious stones.

3. The person entitled to wear a regal or imperial crown; the sovereign; -- with the definite article.

Parliament may be dissolved by the demise of the crown. --Blackstone.

Large arrears of pay were due to the civil and military servants of the crown. --Macaulay.

4. Imperial or regal power or dominion; sovereignty.

There is a power behind the crown greater than the crown itself. --Junius.

5. Anything which imparts beauty, splendor, honor, dignity, or finish.

The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness. --Prov. xvi. 31.

A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband. --Prov. xvi. 4.

Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

Virtuously imparts a royal crowning to finish off Wysi's hoary head.

(and I still mean the REAL definition of to crown!!)

*wonders if Wysi will notice that she crowned him with poison ivy and stink weed*

*notes that Wysiwyg forgot to say LAST!*

ARRRRGH!

An dang near perfect record of including LAST in every post destroyed by my eagerness to gloat!

Serves me right.

Why is my scalp itchy all of a sudden, and what's that smell?

Ok, to protect my LASTing reputation by scabbling to find a LAST somewhere in what I wrote, how about this:

"Here's the definition from a trueLy respected dictionAry, and nowhere do I See any reference To hitting people over the head."

So it was there, just hidden.

Thank goodness my subconscious was still on the ball.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

WAIT just a cotton picking minute!!

Go get your Bible and actually look up Proverbs 16:4! I do believe it is talking about YOU, Mr. Wysiwyg!

*snickers heartily*

(remember, he who laughs LAST, etc.)

Dang. I hate it when I forget to double-check my sources.

Ok smarty, it was Proverbs 12:4.

Obviously Websters (which I may note is an American dictionary, which I chose deliberately in order to avoid any credibility issues with my US audience) can't deal with roman numerals.

A good English dictionary would never have made such a mistake.

*strides off with nose snootily in the air*

*pushes aside sinking feeling that somehow Neo is going to diembowel that argument as well*

Thought you were Australian, not English. And I've noted that reputable Australian dictionaries seem to be hard to find. :P

*quietly notices that the poison ivy has caused Wysiwyg to lose his hair*

*rubs calamine lotion into Wysi's itchy scalp*

*casually glances at the bottle*

Whoops! THAT's not the calamine lotion! Umm.... heh heh...

*backs quickly and quietly away*

Hah!

I'll have you know, Australia has a perfectly reputable dictionary called the Maquarie Dictionary. It boasts features such as:

- over 112,000 headwords covering English as it is used in Australia, from the colourfully colloquial to the highly technical.

- etymologies for some of the more interesting phrases in English. Where does `save someone's bacon' come from? And what about 'on the wallaby'?

I bet YOU don't know what "on the wallaby" means.

Fortunately, they are too tight-a$$ed to allow you to look up words without subscribing, so I don't have to waste time checking to see if they have any retrograde "crown" defintions.

And the hair loss is due to the stress of almost forgetting to say "LAST" in a post. Very unnerving when at any moment it might mean someone else might be actually last.

*scalp bursts into flame*

What tha?!?

*picks up the bottle Neo used in her LAST post**

"'Ole Mexican Super Hot Chillie Sauce"

Hmmm. This would seem to obviate the need for a haircut tomorrow.

But the GOOD news is I no longer have any grey hairs! No hairs of any other color either, mind, but no grey ones. I look 20 years younger!

And look! The crown Neo gave me fits so much better than before!

Well, I DID find reference to the Maquarie dictionary... but as I said, it was hard to find, mixed in with all the slang dictionaries!

"On the wallaby" of course means exactly what it says: on the wallaby. The rest of the world doesn't have any need for it to mean anything else, because frankly, we'll never actually SEE a wallaby so we hardly even need to know what THEY are, much less a whole expression about them!

*Laughs LAST*
Oh, I almost forgot! You poor thing, having a burning scalp! *pours a bucket of ice cold water on Wysi's head*

*is instantly snap-frozen*

Oh good, a LAST indignity.

In case you had forgotten it is the depths of winter over here, and a bucket of already cold water won't remain liquid for more than a few seconds.

Good news though, is that the crown Neo gave me is now frozen so solidly to my (now bald) head that there is no chance of her or anyone else grabbing it back until next spring.

BTW, a wallaby is a quarter-sized kangaroo. If an adult were literally "on the wallaby", they'd squash it.

No, it is an expression popularised by Henry Lawson, a famous Australian poet of the late 1800's, in his poem of the same name, and broadly equates to being "on the road", travelling light and on foot, like a tramp (which is roughly what a swagman was in those days).

/Oz history lesson

Well of COURSE we know what a swagman is. Because of course we all know Waltzing Matilda.

And as a matter of fact, we have to know about Wallabies, too, because of that classic ditty, "Willaby, Wallaby, Woo, an elephant sat on you; Willaby Wallaby Wee, an elephant sat on me."

What I don't know about are frozen crowns. I'll come up with something clever... or not.... when I'm not so tired!

in the meantime, I am LAST, and you aren't!

I'd never heard of that ditty, and I thought you were having a lend of me, as they say. So I googled it, and then goggled at the result (Google Goggling is a favourite passtime of mine).

As for Waltzing Matilda, that favourite Australian song about sheep stealing and suicide, it was once proposed as the new national anthem to replace God Save the Queen.

I suspect this was mostly because everyone knew the words to the song. The anthem they ended up choosing, Advance Australia Fair, is known by virtually nobody, even a generation after it was introduced. Some can mumble their way more or less through the first verse, but there's very few that know any of the second verse.

It also contains the line "Our land is girt by sea", which makes virtually everyone choke as they have to sing it. Who the heck is "girt", and why is she by the sea?

But that's us, what percentage of Americans do you reckon know the entire Star Bangled Banner? I'm not being snide, I'm just curious.

And, no, *I'm* LAST, not you!

Wysi, let's face it. Nobody can get through the Star Spangled Banner anymore; we all giggle when we hit the line "o'er the ramparts we watched"

However, despite that, I'm always crying by the time I hit the end of the first verse. I'd wager that less than 1% of Americans know all four verses, a figure I'm making up randomly.

But here it is, and it still makes me cry:

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And in the interest of... hmm. Well, mostly so Wysi doesn't feel the need to pound me or one up me, here are the words to Advance Australia Fair:

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in Nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history's page, let every stage
Advance Australia fair!
In joyful strains then let us sing,
"Advance Australia fair!"


When gallant Cook from Albion sail'd,
To trace wide oceans o'er,
True British courage bore him on,
Till he landed on our shore.
Then here he raised Old England's flag,
The standard of the brave;
With all her faults we love her still,
"Brittannia rules the wave!"
In joyful strains then let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"


Beneath our radiant southern Cross,
We'll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To advance Australia fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"


While other nations of the globe
Behold us from afar,
We'll rise to high renown and shine
Like our glorious southern star;
From England, Scotia, Erin's Isle,
Who come our lot to share,
Let all combine with heart and hand
To advance Australia fair!
In joyful strains then let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"


Shou'd foreign foe e'er sight our coast,
Or dare a foot to land,
We'll rouse to arms like sires of yore
To guard our native strand;
Brittannia then shall surely know,
Beyond wide ocean's roll,
Her sons in fair Australia's land
Still keep a British soul.
In joyful strains the let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"

Well there you go, I've just learned something I didn't know: there are five verses to Advance Australia Fair, I thought there were only two as highlighted on our Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website - the second and third verse.

This could possibly be for politcal correctness reasons as all the other stanzas have references to British things, and while we're part of the Commonwealth, like Canada we're independent.

Still its a pretty if not overly heoric little ditty.

And By the way, DD, I was told recently that Bat Steal Day was celebrated in France and around the rest of the world in the LAST week or so. Did you lose any baseball equipment?

oh, goody. they forgot the hill..
*grabs LAST crown of gold and runs to the top*

n lastly, please forgive my absence, Neo. i missed your birthday! :(

♪HAPPY BIRTHDAY! dear Neo!♫

Well, Cyn, I tend to ignore my birthday these days, so no big deal. But thanks! :) :) :)

Wysiwyg, I believe that the 5 verses were the song as originally written, way back in the day. Naturally the official anthem has been modified and refined to better represent your country.

By the way Wysi, I saw my first wombat the other day. And I learned that the platypus is poisonous. You grow some strange animals in your part of the world! I think it is a rule that at least one out of every two Australian animals has to be dangerous.

And now I'm left wondering two LAST thoughts... is a steel bat better than an aluminum one? And have we seen the LAST of Dave D?

And we missed Cyn's birthday! Happy belated birthday, Cyn!

Whooops, missed it as well.

Happy Birthday Cyn!

Neo, yes there are a lot of poisonous things in Australia, as well as some generically dangerous ones like sharkes and crocodiles. Fortunately you don't come across them too often in real life. Except for the Red Back spider, which is a close relative of the Black Widow, and found in similar sorts of places and spread about as geographically widely as in the US.

General rule of thumb is: don't pick up the wildlife and don't go poking your hands into places you can't see.

Wombats are nice, particularly baby wombats, which are cute. But they are built like a brick sh!thouse and are a menace on the roads at night.

And a LAST thought: I learned to play softball rather than baseball when I was in year 5 and 6, but with a wooden bat. You had to remember to keep the brand to the top (end grain to the ball) otherwise it might split. No experience with metal bats of either sort.

*loves Wysi a flying bat*
*wonders if it will make him split, or if he will keep his end grain to the ball*

(That just sounds remarkable dirty to me, though I don't know why)

You haven't seen the LAST of me, but for today at least, I'm LAST.

Speaking of LASTs, of which I am now it, not neo, I recall that is, or about to be, Marvin's birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARV, WHEREVER YOU ARE!

And many, many more, Marvin, you Paranoid Android you.

*leaves out a quart of premium motor oil, with a lit candle in it*

*smooches neo n ¿wysiwyg?* (i i actually prefer not to count the last ten or fifteen of `em. didn't happen!;)


Happy Birfday, SMarvin! we still miss ya, darlin'.

*smooches neo n ¿wysiwyg?* (i actually prefer not to count the last ten or fifteen of `em. didn't happen!;)


Happy Birfday, SMarvin! we still miss ya, darlin'.

*siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh*

*♪Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda..♪*


oh, noooooo... imma hoit sumbuddy

♪Fer he's a jolly good feller, fer he's a jolly good feller..♪

Been a while since I was LAST here, have been busy.

*eyes off daisymaybe's post*

That wouldn't be a disguised Marv sneaking back in to self-aggrandise again would it? Apologies daisy, if its not....

Daisymae, I have never heard anybody call you Daisymaybe before. :)

Wysi, Daisy really and truly is Daisymae, and an mbe.

No, I think we've seen the LAST of our SMarvin, more's the pity.

And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda

wow! way different lyrics than the last version i heard, Dave.


*crawls into Neo's fubar hammock*

i havin' a bod day

I'm sorry, cyn! But me too. scootch over and let's share the hammock, ok?

*scootches over n hugs neo*

here, sweets .. that and the location of this hammock should keep us n the cabana boys cozy `til the storms blow over.

*hauls in lasting provisions*

lo! a single thread
looking at silly thousands
LAST after some time

lo! a single thread
looking at silly thousands
LAST after some time

*oh, bugger*

Oy, you two, if there is to be any lying down on the job here, its down to me. I'm working to hard to have a life.

*catapults into the hammock*

Now this is cosy, isn't it girls!

*Shares around nachos, bean dip and margaritas in 26oz glasses*

Right, so much for getting the party started.

Insom! great to see you back. Sorry I'm been such a stop out, I'm getting as bad as DD in the randomness of my visits. Will attempt to pick up my game there.

And ah yes, DD, a classic song that. My favorite version, however is by Willie McBride. The stuff of goosebumps. Fortunately, in recent years as the last of the diggers pass away, there has been a revived interest in ANZAC day, and a growing understanding in the Australian youth of the meaning of the day

*sniff*

*hides HTML badge*

There was supposed to be another link in there from the same site to the Waltzing Matilda song. But through being WAY too rusty, I goofed it up. Sorry. And as it turns out, the links to the actual music are gone as well.

Ah well.

LAST time I try and do HTML coding on the fly without practicing somewhere else first.

Oh, and by the way, the boogered link swallowed my LAST in the previous post.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

*gursts*

*wonders how long this will LAST*

Oh, look: Neo's Psssst!

*grabs the Margarita keg back*

Hmmmm. This might explain why, the keg's empty and Cyn is looking stone cold sober.

*gursts in color*

It will, of course, LAST forever.

OW!

Hmmm. That LAST post is missing a line just before the "OW!", which makes it look a bit strange. I'll modify the missing line a bit:

{:D) {:D) {:D)

That help to explain things?

Good.

Psssst! Don't look now, but somebody's stealing my text!

And I am NOT psst, Wysi, which of course means something else entirely here than it does there. :P

I'm just drinking the margaritas 'cause I'm a little thirsty gursty, that's all.

did somebody mention margaritas?

*loves S'girl a straw that leads to the vat o'margaritas*

*scootches over*

This hammock definitely has room for one more; hop in!

i appear sober? *heh* kewl

*hugs wys n sg*

*loves insom a tropical dream drink*

(delivered by them ^)

I *like* it when Neo scootches next to me. In fact I like the word "scootch", although I've never heard before.

So tell me, should I be blushing?

Cyn, we all know that appearances can be deceiving. *loves Cyn another margarita*

And Wysi, regarding your LAST post: Nope! No blushing required, not unless I do THIS, and maybe THIS while I scootch over a bit more... like so...

There. NOW blushing is required.

*waves back to cyn*

*gratefully accepts straw*

*slurps*

*hops into hammock and scootches

hey! the frikkin bot ate the LAST part of my comment!

and no, that wasn't a cheap attempt to be LAST

it was supposed to finish by saying *winks at wysi*

*winks again, just to be sure*

*blushes all over*

BUT, let me say, you can scootch me any time.

*winks at SG*

Thanks for the clarification there, for a moment I though you were ... um ... scootching by yourself.

NTTAWWT!!!

Dang. I keep forgetting to be LAST.

Can't allow that to happen.

Ever.

just scootch and soda, for me , thanks....

And I'll have a Scootch on the rocks please.

And you can make of that what you will!

*still blushing from Neo's LAST comment*

Gursting can get you doing that of course, the blood tends to rush to parts of your body that everyone can see.

pssst...guys...doesn't wysiwyg look cute in red? ;)

and um...Dang. I keep forgetting to be LAST.

Can't allow that to happen.

Ever.

no worries - you had to know that would never LAST, right?!?

*loves insom a scootch and soda*

*scootches some soda to insom*
*scootches Wysi's rocks*

(Note that there are pics of Wysi's rock's ALL over the internet. Also note that someone had his or her hands all over Wysi's rocks. Just sayin'.)

*smooches the party gathering in the hammock*

Dave D? Darlin'? You are welcome to come join the party. But you still aren't LAST.

(ok, the thread is so long that it won't let me preview anymore, so here's hoping! *crosses fingers*)

Southerngirl, you think Wysi looks good in red? At one time, the dress uniform for the last thread was a red silk nightie. You should have seen Wysiwyg then!

oooh...wish i could have...

but, aLAST, i missed it :(

Well, SG, suffice it to say, more than the visible bits of me went red at that time. I can't quite recall, but it might have been Neo's red silk teddy that got the party started.

*clutches HTML badge in case he stuffs up like LAST time*

And some rocks for Neo...

YAY!
