shamelessAutomobiles! Landscaping! Lurid Zombie Romance!

In her first public appearance for decades, the notoriously taciturn Mrs. Benitez is grilled, basted, and expertly coaxed into a heady exposition of life, love, and pocket-sized munitions by the silver-tongued – and utterly charming – proprietor of

I’m just saying.

    Ah, so that wasn’t you in the season finale of ‘Six Feet Under’. I wondered.

  2. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the creators were persua… er, inspired to base one or two or their more attractive and sensitively wrought characters on a certain ‘underground’ personality.
    That’s all I’m allowed to tell you.

    This particular adjective has been known to have devastating effects on the proprietor’s state of mental arousal, and is not taken lightly. *Tingle*

    Thank you!

  4. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    Martin: Really? Good to know.

    *Repeats to self: with great power comes great responsibility, with great power…*

  5. infini Says:

    no no mrs benitez, one repeats to oneself that power is like fire, an excellent slave but a badmaster. mais oui?

  6. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    How about: with great firepower comes great… smoky bits?

    I give up. I got nothing.

  7. infini Says:

    smoky bacon bits is the word you are looking for

  8. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    ‘With great firepower comes great smoky bacon bits.’ Yes, that’s exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

    In fact, I’m thinking of having it inscribed on our family crest:
    Per Valde Incendia Vox Adveho Valde Fumidus Bacon Bits. Catchy.

    Surely that’s um, crispy, not catchy Mrs B? :)

    what hedwig said.

  12. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    You three are such hams.

  13. hedwig Says:

    Reminds me of a Carlin quote.

    “The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”

    I always assumed that it was because the French take their creme brulee very seriously.

  15. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    No, that was me. I said that.

  16. infini Says:

    Don’t tempt me so much, Mrs. Benitez, my weakened heart can’t take too many shocks to teh sytem these days. Getting old you know.

  17. hedwig Says:

    You are George Carlin?

    Suddenly it all makes sense……

  18. Two weeks notice Says:

    Even the mysterious stains on the carpet?

  19. infini Says:

    carpet? what carpet?

  20. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    How many times do I have to say this?: That’s a chalk outline, not a stain.
