I'm not sure which letter to play from...according to the snake rules, you cannot end an entry with "'Butterfly, Moth or Skipper' ....so Thunder's entry would be "Long Tailed", which doesn't really make sense, maybe in this sort of case ending the name with Skipper would be more correct...or should it be "long Tail"?..who knows..Sypher, Thunder i will hold out on my post until the last minute. If u are both oblivious to this snake-drama I will post of the letter D in anticipation taht Sypher will edit the entry to read "Long Tailed"..

does any of that make sense?

No, Partsdude, didn't beat the rap, and had to pay the full fine - we all stood in line forever and decided which parts of the city hall we had paid for based on the tickets we got from the stormtroopers who have been trying to meet their quotas!
But on a good note, it reaffirmed why I don't do that for a living any more. Yech!!!

no worries JJ, Sypher went along with you too.
btw that thing on your head is not a cap, it's a crown, to match your sparkling personality and good looks (sometimes, that gets me lots of brownie points around home too!)

ACK! Just got told I'll be out doing a meet and greet this evening and won't be able to post in my time-slot!
About the time I should be posting, we'll be giving one lucky person a ride in the heli. (Sorry... must be present to win!)

Would anyone mind if I post in between Smiley and UfasN8me2, from 13:00 to 13:30?

AHEM, MISS BAGLADY!!!! Just because I was late twice, does not mean I forfeited my time slot. So I come back, having researched my entry, only to find that you have posted something in my place. DA NOIVE OF SOME PEOPLE!!! (I am just kiddin, sweetheart, but my post will be a little late - found something and then realized it ended in a forbidden leter that I'd sooner avoid!)

I'm sorry, Mama.......I knew I had a quick meeting at 11:00 this morning, so I posted a message in "Urgent Time Announcements" yesterday. I should have posted it in Snake Talk, too....maybe we have TOO many places to put messages! lol

BTW, if it'll make you feel any better, I really didn't want a "Y".....hope the letter I left you was better.

Absolutely not a problem. However, now that I waited, someone else posted the very entry I had been considering - and I haven't even thought about an "X" entry - ???
I usually check ten ways from Sunday to see who's posting early or late or whatever, but I didn't today - so, moving right along!!!

Mama... does this mean you are posting in the 1:00 FT time timeslot?
I'm confused...

I've got an "x" if you can't find one... I posted in this thread and the Urgent thread, but no one acknowledged...

I'll wait till as close to 1:30 as I can for your reply... if you post, can I have the 1:30 to 2:00 slot?
Anyone?

.............MOTH EXTERMINATOR
 
The lovers passionately embraced on her bed, their bodies fused together as they gyrated to their own tattoo.

The woman cocked her ear, "Quick! My husband's coming through the front door! Hide in the bathroom!" she cried.

The lover ran into the bathroom as she hid his clothes under the bed and as she turned back, her husband came through the bedroom door. "What are you doing lying on the bed naked?" he asked.

"Darling, I heard you coming up the drive and got ready to receive you," she replied with a knowing smile.

"Great," he said, "I'll just step into the bathroom and I'll be with you in two shakes." Before she could stop him, he was into the bathroom where he found a man clapping his hands together in mid-air.

"Who the devil are you!" the husband demanded.

"I'm from the exterminator company. Your wife called me in to get rid of these pesky moths," the lover replied.

"But.. but you've got no clothes on?" stammered the husband.

The lover looked down and jumped backwards in surprise and said, "The little b*stards!"

Excellent, Pinhead. Love it!
Partsdude, baby, I knew nothing about anything with wings before last week, so I know I'm no expert, but isn't a tufted titmouse a bird? I thought I almost used it one day last week?

Duh!!!! Your absolutely right. This has been a hectic day so far. I must have been stuck in the bird mode. Well, this will just solidify my hold on last place!!
