Ok, that's not a small thing. That's huge. Big Grin Affection is hard to come by.

I suspect there are quite a few here who feel affection for you. Have a joyous new year, wherever your path leads you.

Has anybody mentioned the brains of Baba Bozo yet?

Given that "The Devil" is actually closer to a title of Satan than a name, you could argue that "The Lord" is also a deity which uses 'the' as part of a generally mandatory part of expression.

Damn you're right. So close...

The United Arab Emirates
The United Kingdom

Meanwhile...

Watching dusk fall around the hills on the horizon from the lofty sanctuary of my new apartment in a land far, far away that time forgot.

It is huge. (Your son is with you though, right ? Or have you and hubby broken up, and he had him ?) Except for my little brother, my brothers and sisters are quite a bit older than myself ... which has led to a unique relationship with my mom and dad. They're beyond the "controlling" way they were with the older kids.

That doesn't meet the "That Make You Smile" criteria. Laugh, maybe. Smile, no.

Sorry, was that too quippish?

Don't quip and don't reason through it.

Like The Democratic Republic of Congo or The Australian Commonwealth or The Peoples Republic of China or The Republic of Indonesia or The Republic of Timor or any one of a number of other examples I'd be able to find if I bothered to look it up?

That said: You may have noticed a pattern.

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.

Both are lying things that kill for fun and ruin everything. There is no coincidence.
