I'm not a fan of sauces and condiments. I often wonder what they're trying to disguise!

Bearnaise sauce is OK as long as it is not made from real Bears.

And speaking of Zzzzs, here's the solo version of ZING A LITTLE ZONG, by Leo Robin and Harry Warren:

Zing, Zing, Zing a little Zong with me
I know we're not beside the Zuider Zee
But when you're zittin' by the zide of me,
I want to zing a little zong.

Zing zome zentimental melody
About a chapel or an apple tree
About a couple living happily
And I'll be glad to zing along

This ain't the zeason for getting' kinda zilly
You really are a dolly, a dolly and a dilly
You got a reason to cuddle kinda close to me
And we can do a very clever piece of close harmony

Oh! Zing, zing, zing it's getting late my pet
We've got a most important date to zet
I'm sure that we will make a great duet
And we can zing a little love zong all night long.

All these Zs are reminding me of when I played the queen bee in my fourth grade class's production of Whitling and the Stone Princess. I buzzed a lot and used a lot of Zs. "Zo" instead of "so," "zee" instead of "see," that kind of thing.

I don't know why I wasted time typing that out when I should be working on my paper.

There was a major setback about half an hour ago when I realized that I'd forgotten my thesis statement and had to come up with another one. I really should have written that first one down.

I was also very upset when I took my scheduled 11 o'clock break so I could watch M*A*S*H and some other show was on TV. The Fox people are trying to get to me.

The best condiment is chocolate. It goes with anything. It tastes great, and the bonus is the faces my mom makes when she watches me eat fettucine alfredo with a Hershey bar.

Do you mix the Hershey bar in the fettucine?? :P

I'm not judging.  I used to put tartar sauce on pizza.  Now that's good! ;)

You hold your fork in one hand and the Hershey bar in the other and you alternate.

Did she do it on a regular basis, or did she just try it once?

She did it a few times and it really grossed people out so she quit.

She quit doing it where people could see. I never asked her if she ever did it at home.

I'm a firm believer in chocolate being a subsitute for any food group. And it has no calories - they leak out when it is broken.

Oh, now I want chocolate. I've been eating a lot of Hershey bars because I am going to send in fifteen proofs of purchase and get a shirt. Now I have my fifteen proofs of purchase and NO CHOCOLATE!

I started a sentence half an hour ago and, as far as I can tell, it hasn't ended yet. Stop the insanity!

I had this really long sentence going once in a paper about Heart of Darkness and I kept it up just to see how long I could get it. It ended up being 150-plus words. I was so proud.

Good morning, all!  I've got to get a chunk of the Faith Prince chart done this morning before the recording office and an Arlen-Gershwin meeting later, so the alarm went off at 5 am.  So far, there's not enough caffiene in my pantry or my body to do any good.

DRJose,  your "mondegrene" reference is from the Scottish folksong "The Bonnie Earl of Moray," particularly in the Benjamin Britten arrangement; I only know this because sometime around 1969, I read the original article about this.  My memory is that the article was Canadian, since the lady who showed me the article was Canadian, a former singer at the Stratford Festival, and at that time a librarian at Miami University.  I had just discovered the Britten folksong arrangements, and she asked me if I knew about Lady Mondegrene.   The line is "They've slain the Earl of Moray and laid him on the green," which became "They've slain the Earl of Moray and Lady Mondegrene."

Another great book about mangled vocabulary is "Anguish Languish."  There were also a couple of wonderful books of nursery rhymes employing the French language "Mots d'heure: Gousses, rames," which claimed to be a medieval French book of rhymes but were actually Mother Goose (Mots d'heures: gousses) rhymes; my favorite was "Un p'tit, d'un p'tit."

No thoughts on the TOD!

Good morning!

It took a little longer then I thought to go to Target.  Well, I got sidetracked.  


Heinz 57 is the only ketchup for me! ;D

I agree 100%, DR George!

Same here, DR Danise. Three or four of my classmates in the sixth grade ended up in high school classes because we were in the college prep classes; everyone else from sixth grade went their separate ways in high school.

After high school, no one went to the same college I went to, so that ended our association then, ad I've never seen them since.

Well, at least I'm not alone.   :)

Hey, it's 68 degrees F here!  Cool!

Gotta run for the bus.  Have a wonderful day all!
