Is that real binary? I totally wouldn't be surprised if you'd translated something malicious into binary as a subliminal message to help you take over the Bransforums or something, Watcher. :)

I wonder how I'm going to query my novel about the serial killer who targets literary agents.

Why is it that I completely lose interest in a book where the Lord's name is taken in vain for no good reason, yet most of my own writing revolves around demons and devils trying to either break down heaven or find a place on earth? :?

Cause your demonic forces can batter down the Pearly Gates or make themselves at home on Earth and they still haven't broken a commandment. :)

Thanks to the birth of the processed food industry in the 1950's, for the first time in history, it's easier to be fat than thin. Everybody wants to be with successful people, and for most of our history, the most successful people were the ones with extra money for food, and so were more likely to be fat. Now fattening stuff is everywhere and only the rich can afford healthy food and personal trainers and gym memberships, so they're all skinny.
Everybody loves using things as other things, right? Check out my blog at the Cromulent Bricoleur and see one hipster's approach to recycling, upcycling, and alterna-cycling (which is a word I just made up).

This sounds like a cruel joke from some malicious genie in a magic lamp. "I wish we could all be fat and successful!"

<sly wink> As you wish...

I'm not sure surprise has any one color, except in France where apparently surprise is "shocking blue."

Unless there's a French-from-France expression I don't know, I think that's more fear.

Also, what do you do when someone tells you "colour me surprised" ? With what colour?

Certainly not shocking blue - that would just be scarey - maybe purple with flecks of gold.

Purple with flecks of gold. I can see that! *puts approval seal*

First time to the thread. Hilarious! I just want to say that Ray Bradbury wrote the vacation-in-time short story and I loved it as a kid.

My thought today: Could I be happy in a polyandrous marriage? (One Wife, Two or More Husbands) I'm a man, by the way.

Just wondering if anyone has actually ever found out how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

A friend of mine says 243. Her husband is a Junior High Pastor and apparently they did it in youth group one night. Whether the lick count is actually accurate, though, I'm not sure.
