PL Times, E8

The PL Times
The Official Punchy Lands’ Newspaper
Monday, 28, 2013
Edition 8
————————————————————————————————————

Section A. Punchy Proverbs:

(1) As soon as I see people, I get offended. That’s how I get along with people. (Proverb from Nicholas Warren–a PL writer.)

(2) A wondering mind usually causes the feet to wander too.

(3) The essence of Time is confusing, but one thing is sure: It ticks by steadily.

This professor favors the first… How about you, PF?

““““““““““““

Section B. Something you should know about the professor:

The professor always favors his favorites.

““““““““““““

Section C. What the PL’ers have to say:

(1) I feel mad, so leave me along–I mean alone! ~ Fats Henry

(2) Listen, buds, is it my fault I’m so special? ~ Bud Parker

(3) Time is tricky. The more we try to understand it, the more we hear it ticking. ~ Merlin

““““““““““““

Section D. Breaking News:

Well, PF, the professor is proud to announce that he (finally) bought a house in the PL! I’ve been thinking on it an awful while.

It’s very professorish, and it’s on a quiet street. Now the professor won’t have to stay at the horrid PL hotels when visiting the PL!

““““““““““““

Section E. Featured Story: Daddy Salami’s Daycare
by J. Freedwoppen

“I think it’s good. I mean, where else in England can you put your brats–I mean, kids?”

Even though King Arthur approves of the new daycare, parents all over England are quite hesitant about putting their kids into the hands of Daddy Salami.

“Of course I can take care of kids, cur!” Daddy Salami said. “Daddy’s a good daddy. Look how Ruber turned out! A brilliant boy. Most kids just need a hard hand. Hehaha.”

One mother was quite pleased about the new daycare.

“Oh yes. Mr. Salami will do just fine. After all, he was once a knight–and look at his son’s booming business, Ruber’s Catering? It will definitely be a good thing for my little Charles.”

““““““““““““

Section G. Hearing from the PL Family

PL family, if you have any questions about the Punchy Lands, characters, or anything Punchy, feel free to comment below.

The Punchy Times principal reporter, J. Freedwoppen, would be more than glad to cover or investigate your query. (Make sure to clearly indicate your question for Mr. Freedwoppen.)

    I have a question. I keep forgetting to bring it up. What is that wee small creature that is peeking over the blog page from the upper right hand side?

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 15:05

      That creature is an illustration of Daddy Salami sticking his tongue out! It’s small, so it’s a bit hard to make out!

      • 3 Susan P October 30, 2013 at 17:38

        Ahhhh. Now I understand why it is where it is. It looks like he’s spying on the PLers.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 19:01

        :lol: Now it’s maybe a bit creepy too. I bet he is, in fact. Definitely something he’d do.

      • 5 Susan P October 30, 2013 at 21:33

        I kept seeing glimpses of him and thinking I was seeing things. So small and nearly out of sight. What a nifty idea.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 22:16

        :lol: It’s odd, I know. But very Punchyish!

      • 7 Susan P October 31, 2013 at 00:05

        Yes! That is it!

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2013 at 17:06

        :D :cool:

  2. 9 Angeline M October 29, 2013 at 02:46

    Wow, 103 comments already; all these people offend me…oh, wait, I meant that I liked proved #1 the very best. And I was pretty sure that would be your favorite. It is, isn’t it?
    I’m glad you found a professorish house on a quiet street. Will you have a housewarming party? And if you do will you invite Mr. Ratherquite?
    Daddy Salami’s Day Care…that has a rather nice ring to it. I like that.

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:07

      :lol: It is. The professor likes it, though he usually doesn’t feel that way at all. It’s just not the professorish way–if you know what I mean.

      Thank you! The professor wasn’t planning on it, but I could… Would you come?

      Just like it a little, though. Isn’t it scary?

      • 11 Angeline M October 29, 2013 at 16:58

        Would definitely attend the party!

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 17:23

        But the professor wouldn’t come.

      • 13 Angeline M October 29, 2013 at 17:26

        WHAT????

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:25

        It’d be way too dangerous. Besides, it might get scary.

  3. 15 The Dancing Rider October 28, 2013 at 21:22

    I just somehow hit a key and deleted my comment. Now I can’t duplicate it. Grrrrrrrrr. Perhaps I will try again later.

    • 16 The Dancing Rider October 28, 2013 at 21:23

      Oh joy! I turns out it was accepted even though I was redirected. Yay! :)

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:43

        There is professorishness at work here!

    • 18 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:43

      Everything’s fine, I think!

  4. 19 The Dancing Rider October 28, 2013 at 21:21

    Proverb #3 for me today. Of course I am partial to the weird Merlin anyway. :)

    As for the Professor favoring his favorites – there is no other way to do it! :)

    Wow, the Professor’s new house in the PL! That’s exciting. Given that #1 is the Professors favorite proverb, good thing it’s a quiet street. ;-)

    Yikes. DS running daycare. Loved DS’s citing of Ruber as having turned out great. The idea of DS Daycare for Young Curs is bad enough. Scarier is the mom who LIKES the idea~

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:43

      I like #3 too. The professor is looking for a way to stop the clocks.

      Correcto!

      :lol: You’re right.

      That’s what I thought! Personally, I wouldn’t want to send a child there, but I would want to visit, wouldn’t you?

      • 21 The Dancing Rider October 29, 2013 at 13:04

        Out of morbid curiosity, yes! :)

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:27

        The professor understands! :lol:

  5. 23 MissTiffany October 28, 2013 at 19:40

    I think I like proverb number two the best this week.

    Congrats on getting a house, Professor. When is the PL House Warming Party? I’ll bring the boiled potatoes.

    I’m not sure what to think of DS’s daycare. But I’m sure the right kids could benefit from it.

    • 24 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:36

      For some reason, it does seem appropriate.

      Thank you! Red skin?

      :lol: The right kids?

      • 25 MissTiffany October 29, 2013 at 12:58

        :)

        Oh yes. Red skins are the best. I could bake them in butter and garlic if you prefer that over boiled.

        Haha, indeed.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:26

        That sounds awesome!

        Darby would have benefited for sure.

      • 27 MissTiffany October 29, 2013 at 13:29

        Mmmm I thought so.

        I’m not so sure about that. I think Wickham would have a greater benefit than Darby.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 14:43

        It was a trap, wasn’t it?

        The professor might benefit, and if the professor might benefit, Darby definitely would!

  6. 29 sonya solomonovich October 28, 2013 at 19:14

    Definitely proverb 1! I too am quite offended at the sight of people (with a few exceptions of course).

    Daddy Salami used to be a knight? This may be worth an investigation by Mr. Freedwhoppen. I always thought that once you’re a knight, you’re a knight for life. Did Daddy do something bad to be stripped of his title?

    • 30 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:18

      I know what you mean! (Like the professor. :) )

      DS was a knight at Arthur’s round table. Definitely something to look into. I’ll let Freedwhoppen know. (You sure, it could be scary?)

      • 31 sonya solomonovich October 28, 2013 at 19:48

        I suspect it will be scary, but nevertheless the truth must be brought to light.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:39

        Very true. Just remind me if I forget. Dadblame professorish mind.

  7. 33 Brenda October 28, 2013 at 18:11

    Darn, and my kids are already in different schools. I’m sure they could have learned a lot from Daddy Salami. Not. Ah, hem, anyway, congrats on the house on a quiet street. I hope you plant a nice garden. Cheers, Brenda

    • 34 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:14

      :lol: Well, they would have learned some things for sure.

      That would be nice. A strawberry patch, right?

      • 35 Brenda October 28, 2013 at 20:55

        You know it!

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:41

        Awesome!

  8. 37 Anja October 28, 2013 at 17:44

    Ha number 1 makes me laugh but then you probably already know my thoughts on it.
    Number 2 makes sense but my wandering mind makes my hands wander. Not necessarily my feet. I like to capture where my mind went I writing or art.
    A house?!?! What’s it like? What does it look like.
    As a woman who educates young ones ( yes they allow almost anyone to do it) a day care in the hands of Daddy Salami makes me swuirm a bit. I recommend cameras in all rooms. :)

    • 38 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:10

      The professor does not know! What are they?

      That’s cool. Your art is very nice. I wish the professor–instead of wandering with his feet–could wander with his hands.

      Do you really want to know?

      I’m sure you’re perfect for the job. In DS’s hut? They don’t even have electricity!

      • 39 Anja October 28, 2013 at 19:50

        Professor should know my views are I tend to like people. :)

        Of course I would like to know or I wouldn’t ask.

        No electricity!?!?!

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:41

        The professor does too. :D

        It’s a modes professorish house.

        Oh no. Not in the dark age England, and especially not in DS’s hut!

      • 41 Anja October 29, 2013 at 02:05

        I think you should have a slumber party and invite us all over.

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:06

        Oh, I don’t know. The professor is something like a shadow.

      • 43 Anja October 29, 2013 at 13:09

        Well that works for a slumber party. Next excuse :)

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:27

        The professor probably wouldn’t attend his own slumber party.

      • 45 Anja October 29, 2013 at 17:30

        That’s because you know we would play tricks on you :)

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:26

        Who’s we? Your tone is distressing. (I’m sure your son wouldn’t play tricks on this poor, old professor.)

      • 47 Anja October 30, 2013 at 00:33

        We…..as in those attending your slumber party. What tone do I have????

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 13:03

        A wicked one.

      • 49 Anja October 30, 2013 at 13:05

        :) Oh Professor….I am not wicked in any way. Well, maybe tomorrow since it is Halloween.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 13:11

        The professor is always sweet.

      • 51 Anja October 30, 2013 at 13:11

        Not when throwing a fit over the realization over Jane :)

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 13:12

        The realization that it’s wonder she died a normal death after writing P&P…yes, you’re right.

      • 53 Anja October 30, 2013 at 13:14

        haha I do have Jane and the Professor in my hands….still need to finish 5. Hmmmm what will happen? Will it be oh so very romantic?

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 15:03

        The professor might retire.

      • 55 Anja October 30, 2013 at 15:05

        Does the professor have so little faith in me? :)

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 15:15

        No. You are supposed to organize his mind.

      • 57 Anja October 30, 2013 at 16:03

        And I have been? I think

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 18:53

        Yes, you have!

  9. 59 FictionFan October 28, 2013 at 14:36

    I find it impossible to pick a proverb this week. They’re all equally…ahem!…equal…

    It’s quite clear the letter ‘u’ is not one of the Professor’s favo*rites…

    I do sympathise with Bud Parker! It’s hard when a person’s under appreciated.

    Congratulations! (You should have bought one in the PL Scotland though – a far superior neighbourhood…)

    Well! Given how awful young children are, I almost feel sorry for the old sausage…

    • 60 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 15:31

      Equally equal…I think it’s nice.

      Haha, why do you pick on the professor?

      It is! But you’re not supposed to feel that way anymore…

      Not when a war’s going on, dadblameit! You want the professor to implode?

      :lol: But still, I’m sure you wouldn’t want him watching your kids, or younger family members, or whatever… Then again, DS might be good for the younger generation.

      • 61 FictionFan October 28, 2013 at 16:06

        It was the politest way I coud think to put it…

        Well, the Professor keeps picking on those poor ‘u’s… ;)

        Trure – but it’s hard not to feel under appreciated when you live with Tuppence…

        Surely the war’s over by now? I’d have thought our new haggis bombs would have had the English screaming for mercy…

        Huh! It’ll make them grow up tough – too much mollycoddling goes on these days! (I wouldn’t let him look after my cats though…)

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 16:48

        Equally bad or good, I wonder?

        Well, FEF always picking on the ‘f’s…

        I’m beginning to think that Tuppence would benefit from a beating.

        Haha, it can’t be as bad as you make it out to be. The professor would try it. Anyway, Magi’s still having peace talks. No battles as of yet. I think I’ll suggest that they name you queen.

        The professor must agree, I fear. We have just dadblamed the poor kids to horror. (Tuppence could use it.)

      • 63 FictionFan October 28, 2013 at 18:06

        It’s a mystery, isn’t it?

        But those pesky ‘f’s deserve it – trying to elbow out the ‘ugh’s. Anyway I use up all the unemployed ‘f’s in my name.

        The Professor seems to be suffering from very violent thoughts today – not enough Sotsiz Tea?

        Oh it’s OK really – if you like offal wrapped in sheep’s stomach lining, that is. Ooh, yes please – I’d like to be Queen of Scots (though I’m hoping to avoid the beheading…)

        It’s DS I feel sorry for – though I’d feel sorrier for him if he tried to discipline Tuppence!

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:14

        Answer the question, dadblameit!

        That’s true. But the professor isn’t so charitable to letters. Dangerous pastime.

        Hey, the professor wasn’t the one who thought that DS’s thingy was a good idea… (You spelled it right!)

        Well, it doesn’t sound tasty, that’s for sure. But I would try it. (Does anyone bother you on Halloween?) If you were queen, I don’t think the professor would visit Scotland…

        I bet DS and Tuppence would get along.

      • 65 FictionFan October 28, 2013 at 22:39

        Don’t you like my new professorish approach, then? ;)

        Which DS’s thingy? (I had to think about it though…)

        I’ll send some to the PL for Burns Night. (Eh?) Well, after that comment I’m not sure you’d be invited anyway!

        Tuppence would soon sort him out.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:45

        The professor is quite honored that you are emulating him. But have I ever told you about my one failing? I tend to be a bit ambiguous…

        His child thingy care. Whatever it should be called.

        I’m not sure what Burns Night is… (Kids wanting candy, I mean. Sorry.) Well, I’d come, if you were in a good humor…

        The professor is truly growing scared of Tuppence.

      • 67 FictionFan October 29, 2013 at 02:53

        Oh, I’m certain the Professor doesn’t have one failing…

        Daddy Day Care?

        Really? It’s when Scots get together to honour the birthday of Robert Burns – eat a little haggis, drink a lot of whisky and recite incomprehensible Burns poetry…

        ‘Fair fa’ thy honest sonsy face
        Great chieftain o’ the puddin’ race…’

        You can come to a Burns Supper in PL Scotland once I’m queen, if you like…

        Yep, we get kids at the door on Halloween, but not too many. They’re quite tasty though, when dipped in chocolate, I find… :twisted:

        Oh, but she likes the Professor, since he called her awesome…

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:10

        Haha, you’re right: He has thousands.

        I suppose it could be called that. Reminiscent of Eddie Murphy.

        Sounds…like an interesting evening. The professor would only attend such a thing if FEF was there. I fear the professor might make a fool of himself without the proper guidance during such an event.

        :lol: Love the poetry!

        The professor would be honored!

        The professor doesn’t get any, since he lives “out of the way.” Goodness! FEF is having a gnome moment. (I’m sure not even Tuppence would be so cranky!)

        Her brother is awesome too, with that pink nose! (Bob was out last night catching mice when the professor came home from practice.)

      • 69 FictionFan October 29, 2013 at 16:03

        :lol: Not true! Not thousands…

        Well, I think making a fool of oneself is part of the tradition… ;)

        You’d love Burns poetry – you wouldn’t understand it, admittedly…but then even Scots don’t understand it!

        The honoUr would be mine!

        Gnome moments are fun, though…and really, most children deserve it… ;)

        Tommy is thrilled! He thinks Tuppence gets way too much attention! (I didn’t know you had to practice professorishness – I’d love to see the curriculum…)

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 17:22

        :D

        The professor would fit right in, then!

        :lol:

        I’m sure they are. The professor should try and have some gnome moments. Now, now! Don’t be too harsh on the kiddies.

        He’s right! (Oh no, the professor was busy about something else. You see, professorishness comes naturally.)

      • 71 FictionFan October 29, 2013 at 19:22

        You definitely should – I’ve decided i must have been a gnome all my life without realising it – somehow it just feels right!

        He is! in fact, Tommy is always righterer…

        (I’m deeply disappointed – I had a lovely vision of lots of people all feverishly studying the weird and wonderful ways of professorishness, while our own dear Prof sits at the back of the class, paying no attention but still always being top of the class!)

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:34

        The professor always supposed himself a leprechaun.

        Now it sounds like Tommy’s mocking the professor…rats!

        (Oh no, I think the professorishness is definitely unique to this professor. I might open such a school some day, though.)

      • 73 FictionFan October 30, 2013 at 01:07

        A leprechaun and a gnome dancing the cotillion – I’m pretty sure that’ll be unique! ;)

        No, Tommy would never mock anyone – promise you won’t tell him I said it, but he’s kind of the Shnoddy of our household – takes life way too seriously…but unlike Shnoddy he’s gorgeous, so he gets away with it.

        (Do! I’d sign up for classes… ;) )

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 13:09

        I think you’re right. Though I bet Darby was a sort of gnome and Lizio seemed like an orc or something.

        Well, maybe Shnoddy has a pink nose too!

        It might ruin your brain, though…

      • 75 FictionFan October 30, 2013 at 14:15

        Lizio an orc??? I think you must have been reading the wrong book…or maybe reading it upside down!

        :lol: Somehow I’m not sure it would suit him as much as Tommy. (Tommy is most touched that you remembered his pretty pink nose…it’s truly his best feature!)

        Or improve it…

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 15:13

        I thought Jane made a point of saying how ugly Lizio was. It was quite surprising.

        I think you could be right about that. (Couldn’t forget it!)

        What a nice thing to say, and I think you’ve got a point there.

  10. 77 ladycheetah7 October 28, 2013 at 14:04

    #2 is deep.
    So PVJ did you pay your home off in the PL?
    Daddy Salami with daycare. Lawd help us all.
    Also I would like Manly to be interviewed and will add the questions later.
    :-)

    • 78 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 15:25

      It might be deep; I’m not really sure about it altogether.

      Yes, I did. You see, the professor stopped by and looted the Punchy’s cave.

      What? Don’t you think he’ll do a good job? :lol:

      Ah! An interview with MM, really?

      • 79 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 16:00

        Yes, An interview with MM – I can hear him now..

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 16:44

        Really? Another interview. Goodness.

      • 81 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 17:17

        Are you disappointed?

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:05

        Not at all. Just fascinated!

      • 83 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:09

        Well, mens folks seem to abound in the PL. I’d ask for an interview of one or both of the ladies (since they are always together I suppose we’d need both of them at once if we can manage it) but they would need names, too, I think.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:16

        Interesting! Oh, they have names. But I’m sure they’d refuse an interview.

      • 85 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:19

        Unladylike?

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:21

        How could the ladies be unladylike?

      • 87 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:27

        It’s unlady like in some cultures for ladies to allow ladies to have their names and pictures bandied about in public.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:35

        Oh, I’m sure these ladies would be fine with that. Mr. R might not like it, though.

      • 89 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:45

        Mr. R a bit of a stiff shirt?

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:38

        Overly protective, I think.

      • 91 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 11:40

        He’s definitely not my type then. I dated someone like that back in the dark ages. He also did not know the meaning of “No.” and kept circling around singing wedding music even after I tried to gently discourage him. His mother was pretty cool, though.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:13

        Well, I think the ladies like it, though. Back in the dark ages? :lol: Seems like he needed a beating–even if his mother was cool. Did she have a katana?

      • 93 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 21:42

        I don’t think she had a katana, but she made a mean bread stuffing for poultry. Best I’ve ever eaten.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:40

        The professor suddenly likes her too.

      • 95 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 23:53

        :D

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:57

        :lol:

      • 97 ladycheetah7 October 28, 2013 at 22:40

        Of course it is deep. Wondering mind….wandering feet. C’mmon.
        Daddy Salami Daycare. I shudder the thought. Those poor children. Soon they will be needing therapy. Unless, they are out of control he might do them some good.
        Yez, an interview with MM. He is the coolest of the PL’ers.

        To Mr. Freedwoopen
        Manly Interview Questions
        1. What is your honest opinion about Professor VJ?
        2. Do you have any business aspirations to improve the Punchy Lands? Like build highways, bring WiFi, etc.
        3. Who would you elect for Punchy Mayor? Daddy Salami or Mr. Ratherquite? And why?

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:47

        :lol: Haha! Of course!

        Therapy… :lol: Very true. Oh dear! Well, the question is, who should interview MM?

        Great questions, but MM hasn’t agreed to an interview yet. Of course, I could try and make him… Let me see.

      • 99 ladycheetah7 October 29, 2013 at 01:58

        K. Good question and not sure. If he does agree to an interview the person has to be on point and not allow MM to overshadow.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:05

        The professor might be able to handle him…?

  11. 101 Jackie October 28, 2013 at 13:56

    First I’d like to congratulate you on your new house! I’m very happy for you.

    Proverb #3 is my favorite this week. Time does keep ticking along. It also speeds up or slows down depending on what you’re doing. Time is pretty amazing and horrible all at once.

    Daddy Salami daycare? hahahahahahaha — ahem … we shall see how that goes!

    Another punchalicious edition! Thanks for keeping us informed, Professor! :-D

    • 102 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 15:24

      Thank you!

      It is. I hate it when it speeds up the most…well, it’s also annoying when it goes to dadblame slow!

      How do you think it will turn out?

      My pleasure! Thanks for reading!

      • 103 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 16:01

        It speeds up on me more than I would like to admit. I remember when holidays always took so long to come around. Now I scarcely get the decorations put up and it’s time to get them out again.

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 16:45

        Very true, Susan. But what can we do about it? Maybe the professor will destroy every clock in his dadblame home.

      • 105 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 17:20

        Dun’t work. The battery in my wrist watch died two years ago and has not been replaced. Some days time moves a lot faster than before when I had a watch. The clocks in my house are in cahoots with it because even though my dear accountant husband meticulously sets all the clocks to the same time (except the one in my office which I keep 15 minutes fast on purpose) and inevitably when a month has gone by they all have a different time on them.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:07

        Aha! Very strange. Maybe the professor should wear his watch again, then. (The professor does applaud Mr. P for trying to set the clocks all the same. I should try too. A pity it doesn’t stay that way.)

      • 107 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:10

        Let me know how that works for you. If it does, you can pass your secret on to Mr. P.

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:17

        Haha, I will!

      • 109 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:19

        :D

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:21

        :cool:

      • 111 Jackie October 28, 2013 at 16:50

        I’m not even going to speculate on that one! It may turn out well. I mean look at Ruber and his food business. Or it may be a disaster – I find the hard hand comment a bit distressing. Time, as they say, will tell. 8-)

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:05

        Very good point. But Mortimer is helping Ruber. It definitely will!

      • 113 Jackie October 28, 2013 at 19:12

        Who knows maybe someone will help DS.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:17

        True. Maybe Fats Henry will.

      • 115 Jackie October 28, 2013 at 19:49

        As I said, time will tell! 8-)

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:40

        Truly true!!

  12. 117 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 28, 2013 at 13:32

    Section A: 2 & 3 Maybe hits a bit too close to home for me today. They are my favorites either way.

    It’s nice to have favorites.

    Congratulations! (Not a tree house, I am sure. A nice quiet street is the next best thing.)

    Maybe I could get a few tips from Daddy Salami about teaching young children. I didn’t know we had that in common, as well. :)

    • 118 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 13:38

      They are close now that I think about it. Great point, ODRS! (Hope I did that right.)

      It is! Like the Red Sox…

      Yes, yes. The professor, you know, couldn’t live in a tree house.

      :lol: Would you want to visit his daycare?

      • 119 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 28, 2013 at 19:45

        Thank you. ;) (You did fine.)

        Ummm. Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, STL Blues and KSU Wildcats. Not a word, Sir…. :D

        I couldn’t live in one either, but an afternoon visit would be nice.

        Yes! I wouldn’t dream of turning a fellow Ginger away. I would encourage him to have my classroom boundries. I fear he needs a strong right hand, as he’s prone to unacceptable language! :lol: Feisty one!

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:37

        Good!

        I like the Packers. Jordy Nelson!!!

        :lol: Language like “cur”?

      • 121 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 29, 2013 at 02:47

        :lol: :lol: :lol:

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:08

        Oh dear. :lol:

  13. 123 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 13:09

    Proverbs: 1. You know, there are some people who strike me that way.

    Proverbs: 3. This is only true if the clock is wound.

    I think I’m with Nicholas on this one.

    Section B. Favorite whats?

    Section D. What in the world made you think you wanted a residence in the PL for pete’s sake?

    Daddy Salami’s Daycare is just wrong. One several levels. It makes my head hurt.

    I think Freedwoppen should set up an undercover investigative report about DSD.

    • 124 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 13:32

      Haha, I didn’t think about it that way.

      :lol: The professor always winds his clocks!

      Favorite…anythings?

      Well, I go there so much. Way better than a hotel, right?

      But not as bad as the children’s heads will hurt…

      I like the idea too! Will tell him.

      • 125 Jazzy Couldren October 28, 2013 at 14:30

        Hey, my hotels are pretty swanky.

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 15:26

        Swanky? :lol: And expensive!

      • 127 Jazzy Couldren October 28, 2013 at 15:38

        Is you a poor little baby?

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 16:44

        The professor is not a baby, I assure you!

      • 129 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 16:04

        I think my favorite is #2. Except my mind has a hard time getting my feet to move anywhere at any time.

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 16:45

        :lol: The professor’s the opposite, I think. One thought and feet are off.

      • 131 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 17:22

        Squirrel brain?

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:07

        Goodness! What’s it mean?

      • 133 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:17

        Squirrel brain is when you are easily distracted from the project in hand and you go running off in another direction. Or maybe that is not what you meant.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:19

        :lol: The professor is a squirrel brain! I like that. Almost as bad as Samurai Rat. Did you know the professor is known as a Samurai Rat?

      • 135 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:21

        I did not know that. My son-in-law has several black belts in Karate. Is it anything like that?

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:34

        Goodness. Well, just because the professor has a katana, I think.

      • 137 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:47

        And that makes you dangerous.

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:39

        The professor can’t be dangerous! He’s too sweet. :D

      • 139 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 11:36

        Ri-i-i-i-ight.
        :D

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:11

        He is, though! Truly. The professor wouldn’t hurt a fly.

      • 141 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 21:41

        What would he hurt?

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:40

        A cat.

      • 143 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 23:52

        That would be dangerous. Very dangerous indeed, Professor.

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 23:57

        Ooo, you’re right. Better leave that to the Tassie Devils.

      • 145 Susan P October 29, 2013 at 23:59

        Indeed.

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2013 at 00:10

        Yes, yes.

      • 147 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 16:06

        Your hotels are swanky? Define swanky, Mr. Couldren.

      • 148 Jazzy Couldren October 28, 2013 at 16:37

        Swanky means luxurious and expensive, honey doll.

      • 149 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:49

        I know what swanky means honey butt.

  14. 150 L. Marie October 28, 2013 at 13:00

    I also favor the first one. And um congrats on the house. But what will you do about food? Surely you won’t eat at Ruber’s Catering.

    It makes sense that Daddy Salami would open a daycare. After all, he is Daddy Salami. He’d probably make a great Santa.

    • 151 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 13:30

      Yes, it’s a beauty! No, not all the time. It is better now that Mortimer is helping. The professor actually bought a house in America of the PL. There are plenty of food places all around, I assure you.

      If you visited, wouldn’t you want to try Ruber’s place?

      :lol: DS as Santa. That would be…creepy.

  15. 152 Hazy October 28, 2013 at 12:38

    A: I like (1) and (2). Well done again, Nicholas Warren! Nice quote. I think sometimes that’s how I get along with people too. (2) a wandering hazy mind, more like :lol:

    B: True that, even for people other than the professor, I think.

    D: Congratulations on the new abode, professor! Will you throw a housewarming party? Will we see a floorplan of it someday, maybe?

    E: Poor Charles, to be left in the hands of DS. If I had a child, I don’t think I’d do that. I wonder what the kids’ activities will be…

    • 153 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 13:28

      I know! His quotes are nice. I’m sure Shnodgrate appreciates it.

      :lol: A wandering, hazy mind is a good mind!

      I think so too.

      Ahh, a floorplan–if the professor could figure out how to do one. Oh no, no party. Who knows what PL’ers (i.e. Schwarz, DS) might show up!

      It’s scary to think about, isn’t it? I’m sure you wouldn’t give your child to DS. Wouldn’t be safe–in this professor’s opinion.

      • 154 Hazy October 31, 2013 at 13:58

        :lol: I’m glad you think so. Is your mind wandering too?

        I will be looking forward to that floorplan, should you be able to figure it out. I am quite curious about the professor’s new abode. For vacation purposes/brief PL stays only, I suppose?

        Ah, I understand. A housewarming party could lead to trouble with those lads.

        Not safe indeed!

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2013 at 17:13

        Yes, of course!

        Yes, but the professor has been spending more and more time in the PL. You and Weatherly should visit one day.

        Definitely!

        No way!

      • 156 Hazy November 2, 2013 at 13:15

        That’d be great, thanks! Weatherly and I would be very glad to visit one day and explore the PL. We should have that arranged.

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2013 at 17:22

        We should! It would be awesome.

      • 158 Hazy November 5, 2013 at 14:43

        Yes it would! :cool:

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2013 at 16:31

        :D

  16. 160 technophile9 October 28, 2013 at 12:30

    Quote #3 is my favourite. :)

    Congratulations on your new house! Is this a permanent house or just a holiday home? And who are your neighbours?

    :D Daddy Salami opening a nursery?! ROFL… But who knows? Maybe he’s a parenting maestro. Have you ever heard of the movie ‘Daddy Day Care’?

    • 161 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 13:26

      Good choice, I must say. It’s very true.

      Well, it’ll be there for me every time I go to the PL. (Mr. R isn’t too far from my house, actually.)

      :lol: I have! I’m sure DS will run it better than they did, don’t you think so? Would you want to go to his daycare?

      • 162 technophile9 October 28, 2013 at 14:11

        No, I don’t think I would trust any of my children with Daddy Salami… if I had any.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 15:25

        The professor agrees with your sentiments. I’m not sure I’d trust anything with DS.

      • 164 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 16:07

        That makes three of us.

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 16:48

        Haha, it’s too bad. Maybe I’d trust Ruber.

      • 166 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 17:23

        Ruber’s deep. You never know what he will be up to next.

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:08

        Isn’t that the truth! I’m sure DS would give anything to know too!

      • 168 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:18

        *nods wisely*

        Ruber must have inherited his thinking abilities from his mum.

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:20

        Yes, you must be right. Wonder who she was, though…

      • 170 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:26

        Why you know her name: Mommy Salami!

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2013 at 19:34

        :lol: You’re right! It has to be.

      • 172 Susan P October 28, 2013 at 19:46

        :D

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 01:38

        :cool:
