Chapter 27: Showdown in the Moonlight

Later that evening, Rosalie lingered with Hector on the veranda.  He was silent as usual, his lush brown eyes locked upon some distant horizon that only his heart could know.  She had learned not to disturb these moods, but tonight she yearned more than ever to reach him.

I feel I owe you people an apology:  Hundreds of posts since June...

"Please tell me what you’re feeling," she whispered.  As always, there was no reply, only the unblinking, haunted stare that masked untold heartbreak and madness.  Her aching for him was greater now than she had ever known, and slowly, hesitantly, she lowered her face to him.

...and I haven't dropped one F-bomb.  Maybe it's age, or upbringing...

It was only a flutter at first, a brief sensation as her lips brushed against his, but it felt like forbidden fire coursing through her entire body.  Drunk with passion, she pressed her mouth ever more urgently to his, desperately seeking some sign, some ray of hope that he hungered for her as well.

...but I owe you more than excuses; I owe you mean-spirited

But there was no hint of validation from his warm yet unyielding eyes, and Rosalie felt her passion turn to anger.  "Well, I hope you’re proud ofth yourthelfth!" she blurted.  "All thith thime I waitedth for you, praying thath you could thare my feelingth!  And now, ifth you’ll let go of my thounge, I’m leaving you fthorever!"

And I solemnly pledge to you that I will be more frick'in vulgar in 2009.

Pass the Kleenex, Molly C.

Wow, There’s A Book For Everything These Days

Apparently, you can now buy a book that tells you how to operate yourself.  And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to Borders to pick up a copy of "The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Complete Idiots."

Wait -- I have to do WHAT in the bushes?

I see you’ve mastered "Sender-Innering for Dummies," Brandi W.

Where’s the ‘Aloofness’ axis?

Otherwise, this makes sense to me.

A+.

GROANNNN

"Take a good look America!" "Take a good look, WORLD!" and "If THEY can get along, what’s OUR excuse!?"

What do these phrases and "Pack their Derms(?!)" have in common? They can all be heard on this smarm-a-thon CBS News video below. Why does every news bit with an animal have to be so DOGGONE lame?

Everyone and their BROTHER has sent this in, and the reporter’s cheesy stylin’ had kept me from posting it. So, now that you have my caveat. Watch it. I WASH MY HANDS!

I’m washing them again, Johanna S.

P.S. Extra points if you can point out MORE eye-roll-worthy phrases!

Legends of Folk Music, Part Six

From their 1958 debut at the Nosepick Hollow Folk Festival, The Happenin’ Hoedown Hipsters kept audiences’ toes a’tapping with a crowd-pleasing mix of folk standards tinged with modern jazz influences. The 1962-65 lineup, pictured here, included Farquard Mandlebroot, lead beagle and vocals; Stanley Burbleson, coyote and harmonica; Roger "Biff" Burbleson, rhythm beagle and vocals; and Doris McGinty, bass mutt.

THANK YOU, BALTIMORE!
