WORDS-L-the *other* white meat-JMW

You can't help growing older but you can stay immature forever.
Author Unknown

Three Strikes and you're a Meeber

Take me out to the SlugFest

Beer, Brats, Bats! Go Meebers

Meebers 10 Information Architects 0

Words-l: Phatic Drivel pitched daily (Sylvia)

My parents went to SlugFest and all they bought me was this stupid
bottle of Viagra. (aht)

4. Rules to live and grow by—instead of increase

Always remember that the ass you kick today may be the one you'll
have to kiss tomorrow. Credit JMW.

"Our vegetable love should grow Vaster than empires, and more

Remember:Time tends to blur one's own indiscretions while bringing
those of others into clear relief—Nancy Harwood

Not the truth says The Bork. My own discretions remain of interest
to me long after I've forgotten who else did what with who else

5. Congratulations go out to Ben and Lisa for their new jobs. You go
Meebers! Birthday greetings to Alec, and a new job for Karen, too.

6. Karstenization continues: Verdant, Adam, steph, rashmi?, hope.

Harwell asked: Okay, what does karstenized mean?

karsten: It's like One-Hour Martinizing, only it usually lasts
longer than an hour and there's no Martin involved...

Karen: Longer than an hour?!

7. Truth or consequences: "I've never denied being a sneaky sonuvabitch".
Jim Farrell

Boo, Web Poo. Whatever. You the man! The wallpaper man, too.

9. Wordslers at work and play: It's termite swarming season now, too.
Between the Mexican smoke and the Formosan termites, I can barely
find my way around.

Must dash, I'm off to sell a kidney to buy a boat. —Richard

10. The Chairman—What a ride it was! He was always there. The voice of
Frank Sinatra lives on and the teeth of wordslers fall out.

11. Interesting information noted by wordslers:

Espen discovered that "Americans" (the pleural) In Hungarian is

*I* don't have snot. —aht

12. Nice Wordslers of the week—

Yeah, Bookrat: quit talking so goddamn cryptically.

Why can't you just leave me along?

I think I hate you.
