Is it being suggested that O.C. is only for being listened to by vegetarians? wink

I am sorry that I can't properly reply at the moment, I must get on with a possibly stultifying Palak Paneer grin

Apologies curry no favours and have a propensity for making happy faces saag...

FSO: some advice: "Brevity is the soul of wit". Shakespeare.

I can't read any of your long posts. Get to the point!

The improv itself was interesting, not my style but a good effort. I don't know if you played all that in 1 sitting, but if so it might have set some kind of record.

...and Shakespeare's catalogue is large wink The crystal clear vase may be the most beautiful and the horrid brown waters the most disgusting....but you can hide nothing in a vase spare the clearest water; anything less betrays you...and I'd rather give a genuine surprise for those willing to wade anyway laugh Thank you; if it *was* a record...well then, um, very good...? It's good to try and remember there's something for all us non-musicians to be getting on with ha

Points, The Wind. Points... FSO's points are multifaceted, layered and nuanced. She plumbs the soul of wit. Seek the points and ye shall find them. smile

Honestly I can barely read a run on sentence that never ends. I sure would like to hear you talk FSO! you probably ramble on incoherently.

And I have no idea what you are trying to say. Having lived in London, UK I can attest than indeed some Brits are just a bit kooky.

Sorry, FSO. It seemed like a good idea at the time to offer a supporting statement, but I seem to have poured gasoline on the fire. Now, I wish I had a fire extinguisher. frown

I am the fire extinguisher.

Many hate FSO's posting style, and many love it. It's useless to argue about it anymore because we know it's not going to change.

End of story.

That's okay CinnyBubble; the effort was sweet and, besides, a flame that burns brightly illuminates the dark and keeps the monsters at bay (though, of course, it *will* attract moths)...."I am the fire extinguisher".....this, alone, is the most avant-garde thing I've read in some time.... laugh

Of fire extinguishers and moths... what a delightful segue to one of my favorites from childhood...
