    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I played Scrabble for the first time (believe it or not) at the community center with some of the kids (middle schoolers) and one of the teachers. They had to guide me through everything; it's really fun when they have to teach me something. Well, this was also a day that the kids had been "being forced" to use dictionaries; I'm starting to wonder if they teach people in schools how to use dictionaries any more. Didn't realize that trash-talking goes with playing Scrabble, but it does. Well, it was the teacher's turn to place a word, and she hesitated and looked at me, saying, "I don't know if I should do this." She put down the word "teat", and I started laughing and said, "Well, it's a perfectly legitimate word." Well the kids, 2-3 boys in particular, asked what the word was. She told them to look it up in the dictionary. One of the youngest, biggest boys looked it up, and he totally freaked out!!! That got the other boys curious; the lone girl was fine and unaffected. Well, the boys got to yelling, "Eeeeee!!!!....Ooooooo!!!!!" The teacher and I laughed until tears came out of our eyes! At least we know they learned something from the dictionary that day! And then, I played the word "ovary"; Back To The Dictionary they went, but with less freaking out! They are just lucky that I didn't go into the little "why men have nipples" talk!! I think we might have had group suicide that day!

    Boys are a trip!

    My son is no longer a "boy" but he laughs everytime someone says any anatomy word. The other day we were talking about my neighbor's son who has aspergers and he busted out laughing because it had a** in it. Boys of all ages are just plain funny!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I'm having trouble finding something on the internet and wonder if I'm going about it wrong. My mom and I heard Billy Collins recite his poem, "Oh, My God" at a lecture recently and she wanted a copy of it. Am I not finding it because it's copyrighted? I thought you could find anything on the internet. If anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it.
    Count your blessings!

    Yes -- that stuff is awesome and well worth the price. (I first tried a free sample, though, through their Web site after reading about it in [I]Wired[/] magazine a couple years ago. Now I can find it at any beauty supply store.) It's totally taken care of razor/waxing bumps in those . . . uhhhh . . . "delicate" areas.

    I was just thinking that I wish we knew what was going on with Nemeses and that lead me to think that I haven't seen Marleybone posting in a while either.

    Anyone know anything?

    I sure hope Nemeses is ok.

    Marleybone, you out there?

    Thank you for bringing that up, MRD. Wasn't Nemeses' friend posting periodically to keep everyone updated on her status. Does anyone know how she has been recuperating?

    The last I remember was Marleybone and her niece's fiasco...

    How about this? Billy Collins was a guest on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion, where he did a reading of "Oh, My God!"

    It's not the text, but better than nothing?

    Here's the link to the APHC site:A Prairie Home Companion for May 26, 2007 from American Public Media

    Download the "first segment." Just fyi, the reading of "Oh, My God!" begins at 29:30.
