The Irritating Gentleman
2024-05-27 00:18

Well, my little feline friend seems to like to lick my potato chips!  Not the whole lot, but just a couple.  My friend (the owner of the cat) says she's just licking the salt off t… Read More

I don't want to give the impression that I'm obsessed with this girl, Caitlin Clark.  I haven't watched her doing anything; I haven't seen her being interviewed, haven't seen her playin… Read More

Just yesterday, I raised the purchase price of almost all of my stories on Smashwords, and I anticipate that the volume at which they're downloaded will be down to a trickle.  Well… Read More
2024-05-04 19:58
I have a lot of problems with DA; that's no secret.  But recently, there was an image of a buxom elf, oozing pulchritudinous, and the caption was: Qualified Elf Looking for a Party.Qual… Read More

Pretty Girl Again
2024-04-18 16:47
Well, they showed me a video of this girl; this time in an awesome 'Little Black Dress'.  Evidently Fb wants to see me in a LBD.  Actually, that would work for me. But I… Read More
Never Fully
2024-04-18 16:31
I rarely get a hook from a Broadway musical stuck in my brain, but I attended a musical review by a semi-professional band in our town, and—you shoulda guessed by now—a song they… Read More

From all I know, the phrase 'How about X?' hadn't supplanted the older equivalent 'What about X?' until the 19th Century, at the earliest.  But I'm not so well-versed in English spoken… Read More
