Battered, But Unbowed.

September 28, 2007

Virgil reappeared 11 years later

with a shock of white hair and an eyepatch.

“I hope I haven’t missed breakfast”,

he said, fastening the sewer grate behind him,

“I could really murder a pancake”.

  3. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    The xGW: it certainly looks that way.

    infini: you know, the stuff you make pancakes with.

  4. infini Says:

    ha ha ha, nice one, Mrs B.,

  5. kyknoord Says:

    So he brought his own condiments? Thoughtful.

  6. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    infini: it was funnier in my head. (But thanks.)

    kyknoord: except, those aren’t raisins…

  7. infini Says:

    you’re welcome mrs b. btw, just noticed the eye has three optic nerves… creative license? ;p

  8. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    How do you know those aren’t just… gross stringy bits? :P

  9. The Tart Says:

    Cinnamon & honey go well with pancakes! Now I must whip some up & visit your archives … Yippy, skippy.

    Smooches to V,

    Sounds a bit Klatchian to me …

  11. Fatman Says:

    I once murdered a pancake. I got away on a technicality but….deep inside…I know I want to murder another, and another…

  12. crayola dude Says:

    I’ve sat here for at least two minutes trying to make an awesomely incredible awesome comment about salt and assualt, but I got nothin’.

    Just so you know.

  13. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    The Tart: that’s awfully sweet of you, dear.

    Parenthesis: I thought they just drank coffee. Why aren’t you on Facebook?

    Fatman: I once sliced up a Brussels Sprout. But that was a hate crime.

    crayola dude: the important thing is, you tried.

    And showed up.

  14. Parenthesis Says:

    The Book of Faces is not nearly as entertaining as the Column Inch Mrs B. Although it does have a graveyard …..
    [and yes, the new url is here to stay. Probably]

  15. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    Parenthesis: ‘Your Facebook, My Ass’ has a graveyard? How fascinating. I may have to crank up the generator and take another look at it…


  16. Parenthesis Says:

    S’true Mrs B. With ghosts, and zombies [headless] and skeletons and everything. You can even have your own headstone [I chose: R.I.P Rigor Mortis]. I wanted a headless horseman too, but he declined, on account of the noise the ghosts were making [rattling their chains and such].
    Oh, and there’s a pumpkin too ;)

  17. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    That’s lovely, dear. But not a patch on the one I have at home.

  18. Parenthesis Says:

    I would never dare to even dream of competing with YOU Mrs B. I do know my limitations ;)

  19. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    That’s what I like to hear. Now, be a dear and fetch me my voulge and a sandwich.

  20. Parenthesis Says:

    I actually had to look voulge up Mrs B. Had no idea what it was. You should add a banner up front, learn something new about medieval 14th century arms here! Or something.

  21. Mrs. Benitez Says:

    I try to have a little something for everyone.

  22. crayola dude Says:

    Voulge? Sounds dirty.

    I want one.
