  • Hah! Heh 'jo! Sounds like prose in motion, eh? Did they beat you into a state of high conundrumdudgeon? Were you conundrumbludgeoned?

    June 12, 2009

  • Skip:

    1. Haha, thanks!

    2. Er, sorry?

    June 11, 2009

  • It keeps on conundrumming, and conundrumming and conundrumming.......... (Maybe that the way the nuns taught some of us difficult concepts. They kept drumming it into our heads. But they were pros at it !)

    June 11, 2009

  • Hah, nearly missed it, fbh! Yes! Still poetry in motion. Nice conundrum.

    June 11, 2009

  • Pleth: two things...

    1. "Woe woe woe" is the funniest line I've read on Wordie in quite some time.

    2. You make me feel very old.

    June 11, 2009

    June 10, 2009

  • Two things:

    1. My mother's first boyfriend apparently sang this when she walked up to him. All together now: Nawwwwww!

    2. This song has been stuck in my head for a good 72 hours now. Specifically, just the RE AH RAAAANGE line.

    Woe.
    Woe woe woe woe woe.

  • *now singing "She Blinded Me With Science," which not coincidentally was played at her wedding*

    June 10, 2009

  • Well. All I can say is that this song just strengthens my desire to quit my job and become a backup singer in a doo-wop band.

    oooooh, aaaaah, wah wah wah wah

    June 9, 2009

  • So, reesetee...do you dare?

    Some of my animosity toward this song may stem from a huge argument I had with my mother when I first heard the song on the radio way back when. I insisted that Tillotson was singing "Oh a tree in motion." I was...wrong.

    June 9, 2009

  • I've never even heard of that song, skip. (Guess I'm lucky.) What I think about when I see this phrase is Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me with Science." :-)

    June 9, 2009

  • This phrase always makes me think of Tim Curry in "Muppet Treasure Island."

    Sue me.

    June 9, 2009

  • ...There's so much I would change.
    It doesn't need improvement--
