|08:38 am - No Delicious for You!|
From the memo for Staci's work's dinner party this evening:
Delicious. (That's all I'm saying right now, except that vegetarian meals will be available for those who prefer them.)
Why, I do believe they're implying that vegetarian meals will not be delicious!
But I like delicious! Sad dinner party!
Current Location: Long Beach, California, USA
Current Mood: hungry
Current Music: Anne Briggs - The Doffing Mistress
Yeah! It's like, "Here, have some soggy celery and free-range rutabaga chips (also soggy), and we'll have our side of Sissy Spacek (which could easily be made with tofu and not actual Sissy Spacek, free-range or otherwise) and beef cake (could be vanilla... or Tom Selleck!)."
But stranger than who?

Capt'n Shig is alive!
And well! But not living in Argentina!
One of the funniest vegetarian meals I ever had was when I requested a "vegetarian plate" on a plane trip, and they gave me... an apple. With a sticker on it. That said, "Vegetarian Meal".
Funny! Not cool at all -- but funny, nonetheless!
Was it actually on a plate?
Yes. It was a whole red apple, shrinkwrapped to a paper plate.
Too bad you didn't know in advance so you could've planted a worm in it and claimed false advertising!

searching for the words to Hallowe'en
found your listing of the lyrics - i heard the song on a jean redpath album and loved the song (though i was searching for her rendition, if any, of the lea-rig by burns). now i find - no real surprise - it is a violet jacob poem arranged by jim reid. i love violet jacob and the other angus woman poets (helen cruickshank, and marion angus). how come you cited the words, if i might ask.

Re: searching for the words to Hallowe'en
Well, because when I posted it, it was actually October 31st, 2005 (the day also known as Halloween)!
But you're right. It's lovely no matter what the occasion!
