The Guilty Conscience.

June 30, 2007

“Do we really have to continue down this passage?”

mumbled Edna furtively, peering into the gloom.

“Just a little further” coaxed Mother, squinting at the photograph,

“according to this, The Chivvy was last spotted right around…




Dammit, Parenthesis will this do?.

    wot? the next DaVinci code in a dark and morbid style?

  2. Parenthesis Says:

    Oooh. Definite tingling in the fingers and toes, sense of euphoria … it might just do Ms. B, it might just do …

    infini: if only we could convince Dan Brown to restrict his novels to 2 sentences…

    Parenthesis: unbefreakin’lievable. You made it through the spam filter!

  5. Rotovator must have minced extra finely methinks.

    Mmmmm… Hammmmm.

  7. Parenthesis Says:

    I know … there goes the neighbourhood, eh? :)

  8. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    xGW: Darn. I missed a fine/glaringly obvious opportunity to work a couple of People Patties into the ‘storyline’…

    As the delightful proprietor of Motel Hell puts it: “it takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent’s Fritters.”

    Kyknoord: We’re all ham, all the time.

    Parenthesis: I’m watching you.

  9. ekke Says:

    But seriously. Who throws a HAM?

  10. Parenthesis Says:

    Oooooooooooooooh Mrs B, is that a challenge? :)

  11. Parenthesis Says:

    And Ekke, why not a ham? It’s better than waving a weenie … [ahem]
    Oh me, oh my, the power of the unmoderated comment :)

  12. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    Ekke: One comment, and you’re already getting lippy. Welcome, you’ll fit right in.

    Hey, I just call it like I saw it, guy. I must concur, though: I’d have drawn it off with a nice chunk of thigh-meat, or that perky little kid that keeps chivying me on the Internet… Oh, hi, Parenthesis – I didn’t see you there. Hang on.. is that a ‘mark as spam’ button?

  13. Parenthesis Says:

    So long at it’s not a “Mark as Ham” button Mrs. B. And thanks for the compliment, it’s years since anyone has called me “perky” or for that matter “kid” … :)

  14. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    It’s not so much a compliment as it is a blatantly transparent ploy to sway your vote in my… Wait! Did I just type that out loud?

  15. Parenthesis Says:

    Gee, didn’t see that coming …

  16. ekke Says:

    And buya buya donkey for the dishonorable mention lass, much appreciated!

  17. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    No, thank you, my son. Thank you.

  18. Parenthesis Says:

    Dishounourable mention? Pffft. I hurl insults about all day and no one offers to buy ME an ass [calling me one does not qualify] … :)

  19. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    Parenthesis: I might have a ham lying about, if you’re interested. Maybe some pickles…

    (So, how is tenmiles’ entry coming along? I’m just asking.)

  20. Parenthesis Says:

    What, now I’m a pig?
    How rude.
    I think we need to chivy Ten Miles along, he was all over the place last week and now seems to have sunk below the radar. Will dispatch a search party immediately. [Although by implication he did say he might bring it along to my little dinner on Saturday night …. ?]

  21. it’s thuuuuuursdaaaaay…

  22. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    [welshaccent] Isit? [/welshaccent]

    (Ballacks. WordPress won’t let me put in actual, fake, HTML tags… that cuts out at least half of my jokes.)

  23. infini Says:

    well now that the laptops all bandaged up and limping along, happy birthday xGW, will pop in tomorrow to singalonga at the blog

    in the meantime, Mrs B. you know what those “fake” html tags did to poor martin’s comments for hte longest time, don’t you? I’d be a little carefull splashing those around if I were you…

  24. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    infini, we live dangerously around here. You know, life on the very edge, and stuff.

    I hope you brought your wallet.

  25. infini Says:

    pulls wallet out
