Madam Justice Marion Cohen has it all wrong...

I finally guessed the theme too. :lalala: :lalala: :lalala: Not a real spoiler (highlight to read) I hope llizard doesn't mind us trying to peek ahead by guessing the future words. Congratulations to both of you!! :hohoho: ...

Re: oh, goodie!

Glad to hear that the St.Nicholas Day shoe sorting and chocolate filling project is agreeable. I really must remember to implement it here too. December 7: Oh, now, really, llizard, isn't that cheating? I don't think I've cheated... :lalala: (looking again to make sure...) Nope. Not me. :hohoho: :ju...

Re: St. Nicholas Day project

Good idea for the shoes. We should have done that too. I suppose we could still do it but I'm afraid it's rather tempting to just wait until next year. The only concern raised was that the Dutch might be offended at this misappropriation of the St. Nicholas Day holiday. I countered with the suggesti...

Re: oh, goodie!

I see some kind of gliche in the animated part of your advent candle image -- A tiny vertical line is flickering on the left side of the flame. Well, rats. It wasn't just your computer, CAM. Thanks for telling me. It's fixed now... :hohoho: I tried to guess the name of the Dec 4 image, but gave up....

I'd like to participate in a Complaints Song on the West Coast. I would like to complain about bad drivers particularly in the snow. If I didn't know that the song would take WAY too long to sing, I'd like to participate in the Complaints Song for Toronto. The verses about bad drivers particularly ...

Re: YouTube gotta see

I thought the Birmingham Complaints Choir was pretty good. It is pretty good. But I'd like to lodge a complaint: 1. The song is too long. 2. (Hey!! That's more than one complaint) I found the subtitles unnecessary at the beginning but wished they had PUT subtitles for the rapper guy - I couldn't un...

If I find myself with no interest in the characters or not caring how a book ends, I have no hesitation in abandoning a book, no matter how many hours I've spent on it. Usually, I am the same way. But when I was first reading "Saturday", I was trapped on a long subway journey, with nothin...

Re: Slogging??

when I pick up a book that I'm reading for pleasure, I'll only give the author 50 pages to "connect". I'm not as generous as you, MEF. My personal rule is to only give the author one paragraph. And I actually loved the first page of Saturday . So when it started to lose me, I just couldn'...
