I know it CAN go off, but I don't think an Easter egg bought in April would have much wrong with it by August :P ;)

It can if you leave it opened and let spiders make webs in it.

I REALLY should throw out my old egg...

I like how the Snickers was off and bitter and disgusting, but you didn't throw it out until the last bite ;) :lol:

and yes, I guess it could, or if you let a seagull crap on it, or any other far-fetched ideas, but NORMALLY, it wouldn't :P

egad :lol:
I'm so glad I'm only marrying CAPTAIN Literal; Grand Ambassador would be the end of me :P ;)

if the definition of a Snickers is something akin to 'a tasty chocolate snack', then that is debatable :P ;)

It occurred to me this morning on my way in to work that there's one of these missed lines, that I know I'm hearing wrong in my head/singing wrong, but I do it anyway.
The Boss, Cover Me:
"Outside's the rain, the driving snow,
I can hear the wild wind blowing..."

my dumb head:
"Alsace-Lorraine, the driving snow... &c, &c, ..." :lol:

I dunno, I like the idea that he's remembering a Continental holiday. ;)

Alsace-Lorraine. Area on the border between France and Germany, subject to years of dispute over... ah, never mind. ;)

Watching a movie I have seen before with guests, enough time to check the Forum but not read entire Wiki articles...

I KNOW Alsase-Lorraine...the Continental Holiday is stumping me now. I am soooo hoping that when not blinded by a bad night, good movies and guests I won't be blushing that I missed this part.

*Grins (Hopeful)*

Europe is often referred to as The Continent
(by people in the UK, primarily, who would go across from their Island to the Continent - it's now a fairly standard reference)

so a holiday in Alsace-Lorraine could be a Continental holiday

that's it

better continue blushing ;)

For decades when "Love the One You're With" by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young came on the radio I would turn it up, sing along but never could make out enough of the first line of the chorus to even sing it wrong so I did a bit of creative mumbling.

"And there's a mumble, mumble, mumble of..."

And now I know....


Quote:
And there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you cant be with the one you love, honey,
Love the one your with

Two points:

1- Exactly WTF does that line mean?!?

2- My wife, who I feel judges the song with a decidedly post-1960s misunderstanding of what the 60s were actually about, interprets the song to mean "F*ck the one your with". As if it's about "free love". I've always believed they meant what they said- "LOVE" the one your with. Just because you are not around those most dear to you, you need not be a cold stranger- or even bad to the ones that you are currently in the company of. That no matter who is to your left or right, love them as you'd like to be. Basically, "We are the world"..."I'd like to buy the world a Coke", and all that. "Can't we all just get along?"

Am I naive or were they being deep and lofty, not merely hormonal?

EDIT/UPDATE: Just looked up the complete lyrics. Seems the wife was right after all. Now...how to avoid her finding out?!? :P
