Blatherings: Breakdown in the Snow

The professor was on the way.

(I was highly tempted to say, “The professor was on his way,” but I’m not sure I have one.)

Anyway…

I was on the way.

dreamstime_12141006It was snowing rather hard, which was a pain and a half.

And that’s when the professor’s car just stopped—in the middle of the road.

A whole host of my favorite cussing expressions came to mind:

 

1. Dadblame this dadblamery!
2. Rats and Heifer!
3. Two and Five Gurgles!

I said all three—in rapid succession.

After the cussing was out of the way, I…did nothing.

I assure you, the professor only sat there for a few minutes (the windows were covered with snow, by this time) when the Veezler suddenly got in the car.

“Having problems?” he asked.

“Yes, indeed.”

The Veezler laughed. “I love seeing the PL’ers have problems! Do you know why the PL has to pay?”

The professor shook his head.

The Veezler leaned close and licked his lips. “It’s because when I was young, I was left out in a storm just like this. It was cold, and I cried. Nobody would help. That’s why.”

I think I said nothing. And the Veezler left rather abruptly.

The professor tried the car again, and it started.

In truth, the Veezler leaves the professor rattled, you know.

This is a picture of me. I was once stranded on an iceberg. What an adventure.

I’m a bit hard to see, so I circled myself.

    I think the Veezler did that just to try and scare you. (I’ll bet people like him, DS, and Zez have a betting pool on who can scare you worst. :-P )

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke August 12, 2014 at 20:10

      You know, I think you could be right. I mean, I’m sure of it. All of those fellows are definitely dastardly. I wonder who’s the worst.

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 August 12, 2014 at 23:31

        I have no idea who the worst is. Daddy Salami hasn’t got the same amount of powers, but he has no honor. Thus, he merely does mischief and not evil. Zez is powerful, but he has some honor. So he does evil, but not always. And the Veezler has no honor, but he also has no power. So he just walks around bad-mouthing people, and if people have any sense, they ignore him. I don’t know who is the worst.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke August 13, 2014 at 13:07

        *laughing* That’s exactly it! Though, you know, some say DS does have power. At times, he can do…some things. I’d say probably Zez is the most dangerous, overall.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 August 13, 2014 at 19:33

        Yes, but the Veezler is probably the most malicious.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke August 13, 2014 at 19:52

        Good point. He just likes to watch things self-destruct.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 August 13, 2014 at 19:58

        And probably would enjoy orchestrating them even more…

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke August 14, 2014 at 13:10

        Yes, you’re absolutely right. I haven’t seen too much of him recently.

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 August 14, 2014 at 15:46

        We should probably worry, in that case!

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke August 14, 2014 at 21:26

        Yes! Where do you suppose he got off too?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 August 15, 2014 at 11:53

        I am not sure… perhaps consulting with Hideous.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke August 16, 2014 at 18:40

        Definitely possible. Oh dear. It’s quite vexing.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 August 16, 2014 at 21:52

        We should find their headquarters and raid them. Just to keep from becoming complacent. Which is how the Jedi Order fell.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke August 18, 2014 at 11:44

        The Sith were brilliant too, remember.

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 August 18, 2014 at 12:14

        If brilliance be found in the mostly-murderous, then yes… :-P

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke August 18, 2014 at 15:04

        They’re not that way all the time.

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 August 19, 2014 at 11:56

        I said “mostly” for a reason. :-P

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2014 at 12:07

        *laughs* You still hate them!

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 August 19, 2014 at 12:21

        No, I’m just irritated with them. Hate is not a very efficient emotion, while a little irritation can be helpful to get things done.

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2014 at 20:23

        Rats! I was trying to trap you, you know.

  2. 21 Hazy February 13, 2014 at 05:43

    Rats and Heifer sounds like a good cussing expression. I think I’ll add it to my list of curses. :lol:

    The Veezler is a bit creepy. I wonder why he was left out in such a storm. That was a bit wicked.

    How did the professor escape the iceberg?

    • 22 Professor VJ Duke February 13, 2014 at 14:48

      It’s a great one!

      It was. He could have helped at least.

      A helicopter picked me up. :D

      • 23 Hazy February 23, 2014 at 04:45

        Ooh, a helicopter. Good for you!

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2014 at 14:48

        :D

  3. 25 Nancy Loderick February 6, 2014 at 21:32

    Hey Professor,

    Boy, that Veezler doesn’t sound very nice. Maybe it’s time to call on your fairy godmother. Or else, stop driving in the snow. :)

    Nancy

    • 26 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:16

      I should! What’s my fairy godmother’s name? The Rock? :D

      • 27 Nancy Loderick February 9, 2014 at 16:20

        Hey Professor,

        No, fairy godmothers have very pretty, ballerina sounding names. Something like Clarissa maybe?

        Nancy

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2014 at 19:42

        Rats and a Heifer! But that would be unprofessorish! :lol:

  4. 29 Angeline M February 6, 2014 at 06:23

    I wonder if the Veezler froze somewhere out there in the snow when he left your car. I’m certainly glad you circled yourself on that iceberg photo…I thought it was the abominable snowman.
    Stay warmish.

    • 30 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:10

      It’s just me in my fluffy white suit, you know.

      I doubt the Veezler froze. He probably…I don’t know. What would you have done with the beast?

  5. 31 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 6, 2014 at 05:19

    Now you’re teaching everyone else how to curse, Duke? You’ve reached an all time low, my dear.

    You should have asked him to dance around in the snow with you. My Magi will take care of that terrible being, so he never gets in your car again. Stay out of the snow, would you? Gesh.

    You look soft. Most def not huggable, although I’d like to be on an iceberg right now.

    Night, Duke.

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:09

      :lol: Aren’t you going to use some of the great cuss words?

      The Veezler? Would you dance with him? :shock: Mr. Magi is hunting him, you know.

      Is it hot in Texas? (I’m in my white suit. :) )

      Night!

      • 33 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 6, 2014 at 14:51

        Such creative words how could one not?

        Are you really going to make me answer that? …..no. I suppose I shouldn’t have suggested it. I was hoping he was, Duketh. Magi really is something…

        No it is freezing here, actually. (It is a nice warm suit, isn’t it. Why do you wear a white suit, Duke?)

        Morning!

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 17:40

        That’s the spirit!

        Mr. Magi is a bit flustered.

        (It’s becoming for the professor. Twain did, you know.)

        Morning, yes!

      • 35 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 6, 2014 at 20:33

        Mr. Magi will know what to do. I’m sure if it!

        Well if the professor is a polar bear then I agree, it suits you. (Haha) I don’t believe that you wear one, but I like that you want to. So many great Twain characteristics to choose from. Do you smoke in your white suit?

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:09

        I bet you’re right. I hope you’re right. The professor is always righter.

        Yes, and swear profusely!

      • 37 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 7, 2014 at 05:26

        Hey…oh yeah, this is your blog, you get to be righter here…

        (frick frack stumble stack) A guys guy… I like that. Keep it up.

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 15:57

        :D That’s nice. I’m usually contested for that.

        And a professorish guy.

      • 39 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 7, 2014 at 16:52

        Contested over being righter? Well it is your blog. I wouldn’t mind agruing about it. Cause I’m full of good points as to why I’m righter. :lol:

        Yes..for sure!

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 21:04

        :lol: Well, go ahead. Tell the professor off. I won’t mind a bit.

      • 41 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 7, 2014 at 21:42

        No. I like being nice to the professor. A Lady does not “tell one off”…she suggests an alternative event. I was taught to kill them with kindness. You can feel it, can’t you? That sting in your heart…that was the first kind word. ;) :lol: (If I wanted to, I could. Just so you know.) ;)

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke February 8, 2014 at 14:41

        Both ways are dreadfully wicked of you. But the latter is the meanest.

      • 43 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister February 8, 2014 at 17:30

        Neither are me

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2014 at 19:39

        And…oh dear.

  6. 45 Painting Pundit February 6, 2014 at 04:23

    How nice to have your own iceberg and a lovely white coat to match.

    That Veezler is a puzzler! Don’t know what to make of him.

    I am looking for the opportunity to use “two and five gurgles!” People will be wonderfully confused. And while they are confused over that, I will then exclaim, “rats and heifer!” It will be great fun to see their faces!

    I’m glad you got your car started. At least you weren’t far from home if not. I might be worried in your case, though, that the Veezler may have followed you home. Did you check?

    • 46 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:08

      :D My white suit!

      Wicked definitely?

      :lol: A great professorish cuss word (words) really helps the mood improve. You’ll have to let me know about it.

      I didn’t! But I haven’t seen him about. I do think he came just to gloat–if that makes sense. What would you have done, had he got in your car?

  7. 47 walt walker February 6, 2014 at 02:50

    Though you say he leaves you rattled, you handled yourself with a good bit of composure while that The Veezler fellow was in your car. I would have screamed like a young girl then wished I hadn’t. Then the shame would have hit me. The car would most certainly not have started, too.

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:06

      :lol: But you said you’d like the Veezler. Perhaps you would have done even better than the professor? (I think he would have liked to hear a scream. You know, he’s that sort of fellow.)

      • 49 walt walker February 6, 2014 at 23:58

        I do like him. When I say scream like a little girl, I mean in the “OMG it’s Justin Beiber” sort of way.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:31

        Oh, you’d be greatly pleased to see the fellow. I see. The professor will try to get him into another skit for you, then.

  8. 51 ladycheetah7 February 6, 2014 at 02:48

    Well, somehow your Wednesday post didn’t show up even on my laptop. I will see what is going on on my side.

    I love the cursing and for sure am taking “rats and heifer.” LUV IT! Oh and btw your gonna have to zoom in on your picture a little bit more. It looks like you are wearing all white..lol

    • 52 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:05

      The professor is having speaks with some mods about it. I think it could just be a little bug.

      Awesome! Definitely use it! :) I am! In a completely white suit. Do you like it?

      • 53 ladycheetah7 February 6, 2014 at 14:47

        It’s hard to tell. Not sure if it is like the Pillsbury dough boy or a tailored suit.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 17:38

        Well, the Pillsbury dough boy isn’t becoming, is it? :mad:

      • 55 ladycheetah7 February 6, 2014 at 18:03

        If you took a closer picture we would know now wouldn’t we.

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 20:17

        Why do you want to see the professor so badly? Perhaps he’s a muskrat.

      • 57 ladycheetah7 February 6, 2014 at 20:19

        You misunderstand. I don’t want to see you so badly. I joke as I know you like, so I assume, anonymity.

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 20:25

        Anonymity is very precious to me, you’re right. I don’t want people to think I’m crazy.

      • 59 ladycheetah7 February 6, 2014 at 20:25

        Haha. Good times.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:08

        :D

  9. 61 PMcG February 5, 2014 at 18:44

    Now I understand Punchyish. Sort of.
    Very lunatic site. Reminds me of me.You take no prisoners. Because then you’d have to feed them or eat them. Who needs another either/or anxiety?

    Am very jealous: 900 followers.
    Be careful, I’ll be watching you.

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:58

      But what if they escaped? What could be done, then?

      Watching with both eyes?

  10. 63 Bethy February 5, 2014 at 18:31

    Being stuck in the snow is super scary! But ice is worse. Would you believe I have never driven in the snow?
    why does the Veezler always show up unexpectedly? Sometimes that is a nice quality in people but in his case it just seems weird. Did you reach your destination safely aftee that?

    I love your photo!

    • 64 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:56

      The professor is a bit shocked, but then, it never snows in Florida, does it?

      I did. The Veezler’s just an overall creep.

      :D And the white suit?

      • 65 Bethy February 5, 2014 at 20:26

        No, it doesn’t but I haven’t always lived in Florida. However, it is where I learned to drive so….I haven’t driven in snow and neither have I parallel parked.

        The white suit is snazzy and of course professorish! How else to match your surroundings!

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 01:40

        No parallel parking? You got off easy! ;)

        :D It was snazzy!

      • 67 Bethy February 6, 2014 at 15:44

        Oh I know! My theory is they don’t want the qtips to even attempt parallel parking because it’s scary enough when they are just driving regularly!
        so do u just wear white suits for taking pictures on ice burgs?

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 17:48

        That seems to make sense.

        Yes, that was a promo shot, you know.

      • 69 Bethy February 7, 2014 at 14:46

        I didn’t know. A promo shot for what? Snow?

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 16:01

        For me!

      • 71 Bethy February 8, 2014 at 12:03

        So let’s see….you dressed in a white suit to go out on an ice burg to promote yourself? I would have picked someplace with more moderate temperatures!

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke February 8, 2014 at 15:03

        But, it’s extremely Punchy, isn’t it?

      • 73 Bethy February 10, 2014 at 14:31

        Yes, I would have to agree.

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke February 10, 2014 at 17:06

        I win. :D

      • 75 Bethy February 11, 2014 at 11:43

        Ah yes you did. Rats and a heifer.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke February 11, 2014 at 14:05

        :lol: :D

  11. 77 weggieboy February 5, 2014 at 17:14

    Hey! Hey! Hey! Watch that language! Never mind…under the circumstances, those are baby-soft whispers, mere breezy tongues of the truth as you experienced it, Professor!

    • 78 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:55

      Oh, they’re the worst cussing words I use. You should use them, too–only when the matter warrants such foul language.

  12. 79 Susan P February 5, 2014 at 16:25

    So, I guess this Veezler had a chilly aspect about him (it is him, right?). What if he just looked cold. Maybe he is related to the St. Bernard dogs that rescue travelers from the snow? I agree with FF – the Professor is indeed cute and adorable. I guess the really scary one is Mr. Riot.

    • 80 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:55

      But wouldn’t you have been frightened if the Veezler had shown up by your car like that? It was unnerving!

      Can you see any details?

      Why are you picking on Mr. Riot?

      • 81 Susan P February 6, 2014 at 02:36

        Why do you think I am picking on Mr. Riot?

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:03

        You seem to think he’s the professor…

      • 83 Susan P February 6, 2014 at 21:41

        Are you saying I pick on the Professor? I’m going to talk to the Lady Cheetah and see if she thinks I pick on the Professor.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:21

        Yes, you do that. But I think the Lady picks on me too!

      • 85 Susan P February 7, 2014 at 01:37

        Never say it!

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:51

        Why not? :shock:

      • 87 Susan P February 7, 2014 at 18:52

        It’s defamatory.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 21:16

        Oh dear. My public image is suffering.

      • 89 Susan P February 8, 2014 at 01:33

        The public hasn’t see you…how can your public image be suffering.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke February 8, 2014 at 15:02

        Oh yes they have!

      • 91 Susan P February 8, 2014 at 15:16

        Harumph! Hmmm.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2014 at 19:32

        Humph indeed!

      • 93 Susan P February 9, 2014 at 20:01

        :D

  13. 94 Debbie February 5, 2014 at 15:41

    Believe it or not (and why shouldn’t you? I’m not in the habit of lying!), I found you in your iceberg picture — before you circled yourself! The Veezler sounds rather creepy. But at least you got your car re-started after it left.

    • 95 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:54

      What do you think of my white suit? :)

  14. 96 PorterGirl February 5, 2014 at 15:20

    What a wonderful picture of you, Professor. Poor Veezler. It is very unpleasant to cry and nobody come for you. I feel a little sad for him. I hope your car was alright, after all that.

    • 97 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:53

      Many thanks. I’m in my white suit, you know.

      But isn’t he a bit scary?

      • 98 PorterGirl February 6, 2014 at 11:11

        I like scary :) He is, yes.

        The white suit really suits you! So to speak ;)

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 14:10

        I thought you might! :)

        :lol:

  15. 100 L. Marie February 5, 2014 at 14:55

    I feel your pain!!!! We’ve had nothing but snow in the Midwest! It’s snowing RIGHT NOW! Arrrrgh!

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:53

      Oh dear no! We should wish very hard for warm weather!

  16. 102 FictionFan February 5, 2014 at 14:04

    Well, no wonder the Professor was cussing! What a scary story! The Veezler sounds…strange. Like one of those people who creak open the massive old door of a rundown mansion when a stranger seeks shelter from the storm…I’m so glad the Professor survived!

    And I see from your pic that you clearly are cute and adorable after all!

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 17:48

        Awesome! They’re picking on the professor.

    • 109 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:52

      The dadblame thing just died! And it was snowing so hard, and I was only a few minutes from home. Talk about dadblamery! The Veezler does leave me…confused, too. Perhaps you’d like to meet him?

      You can’t possibly see any details!

      (I shall look into it. Thanks for telling me.)

        Poor Prof! Dadblamery indeed! But if you were only a few minutes from home, you could have walked – your top hat would have kept your brain warm, and your moustaches would have stopped your nose from getting frostbite…

        I think I’d like to meet the Veezler, but I’m not sure…he might be too scary. He makes DS look positively sweet.

        Gnomes have amazing eyesight. Though I was surprised you weren’t wearing cargo pants…

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 01:45

        I was close to doing so! But I called my agents. They came and got me. :D I told you: the professorish mustache isn’t like that. :lol: Sadly.

        That’s why I’d have to be there if you met him.

        You don’t even know what they look like!

      • 112 FictionFan February 6, 2014 at 15:44

        Is Mic one of your agents? Perhaps he’s the one with the moustache. (Sadly?)

        Indeed! And DS, Schwarzy and MM1 – just to be safe…

        Yes I do! I live in Scotland, not Alpha Centauri! We have cargo pants too! (In fact, I bet it was a Scot who invented them…)

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 17:47

        No, Mic is the main fellow at the studio. Maybe you could forget about Mic? (What are you sad about?)

        DS might not help, you know…

        Oh, you do not! Now this is an interest. The professor belongs on AC, I think.

      • 114 FictionFan February 6, 2014 at 18:24

        Oooh, C-W-W sounds a bit huffy! Jealous? (But…but…I was just asking why the Professor was sad…)

        He’d have to, to prove he’s the evillest.

        Yes, I thinks so too.

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 20:22

        I’m definitely Huff-Hummy! Never jealous. (Oh, sad that I don’t have a mustache to keep the nose warm.)

        He would? That doesn’t make any sense.

        And I thinks so.

      • 116 FictionFan February 6, 2014 at 23:07

        Definitely jealous! Which is odd really, since it means you’re jealous of yourself… (So am I.)

        Oh, I’m so sorry – I’ve obviously misunderstood the whole ethos of Punchyness. I hadn’t grasped that sense was a requirement…

        :lol: Don’t you mock my typos, Cheeky Chicky, or I shall set SUB on you!

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 01:30

        I hope I can see your face the day you realize Mic is not the professor! (I should grow a beard like the Duck men.)

        :lol: You’re so cruel…

        Now you’re calling BUS a hoagie.

      • 118 FictionFan February 7, 2014 at 15:22

        Ah, Mic may not be the Professor, but is the Professor Mic? A question still being pondered by the great thinkers of the age… (Who on earth are the Duck men??)

        Me? Whatever can you mean? :twisted:

        :lol: I can’t possibly be since I have no idea what a hoagie is – but it sounds very rude! (Is this entire comment in a foreign language?)

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 16:07

        Isn’t that the same thing? Are you messing with my mind? It doesn’t take much to confuse me. (Duck Dynasty?)

        :shock: :shock: :shock: You don’t know what a hoagie is?????

      • 120 FictionFan February 7, 2014 at 18:42

        I know.

        (Is that the American equivalent to the Royal Family?)

        I don’t speak American, but it sounds disgusting. Is it? Are you saying BUS is disgusting? :shock:

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2014 at 21:13

        Is the Royal Family liked? Have you ever watched DD?

        Disgusting! It’s a sandwich. Like…a submarine?

      • 122 FictionFan February 7, 2014 at 23:25

        By some – whereas others feel the French Revolution had the right idea. Guess which category FF falls into? I’ve never even heard of DD…

        You eat submarines??? Oh my, that IS manly!!!

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke February 8, 2014 at 14:59

        Umm…the French Revolution idea people? (They’re kinda real popular over here, for some strange reason.)

        You know what I mean, right?

      • 124 FictionFan February 8, 2014 at 17:26

        You know me so well! (I know. I’ve always found that most odd, given that Americans are always banging on about democracy and stuff. I think you should take them…)

        Rarely. But on this occasion, yes. ;)

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2014 at 19:38

        I do. :) (Take them?)

        Goodness grief.

      • 126 FictionFan February 9, 2014 at 23:44

        (The Royals. We’ll keep the Queen and Prince Philip since it seems a shame to evict them at their age, but you can have all the rest. Would you like me to giftwrap them?)

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke February 10, 2014 at 17:05

        Can’t we just have the young ones?

      • 128 FictionFan February 10, 2014 at 17:51

        No, I’m sorry. They’re like one of these boxes of assorted junk you get at car boot sales (US transl: garage sales) – you just have to take the whole lot.

        Anyway, I hope the Professor isn’t suggesting that young people are in some way better than…ahem…less young people? :cry:

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke February 10, 2014 at 20:02

        :lol: You keep it, then!

        Not at all! When the professor was young he always connected more with “older” people. Besides, it’s not a person’s age that matters, it’s their personality. And you, FEF, have a great one.

      • 130 FictionFan February 10, 2014 at 21:36

        Dadblameit! Talked myself out of that sale, didn’t I? Oh well, at least we usually get a holiday any time one of them gets married…or dies.

        Thnak you, C-W-W! :D But for future reference, I much prefer the term ‘less young’ to …(shuddering)…’older’! Of course, being 21, it doesn’t matter to me personally, but I’m thinking of the feelings of some of the really ancient people who might be looking in. ;)

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke February 10, 2014 at 23:12

        Kill them all, and have a fantastic holiday!

        Well, the professor is “older” as you say, and I don’t mind being older. Makes me privileged. You know, “gray hair is a crown of splendor.”

      • 132 FictionFan February 11, 2014 at 14:22

        :lol: :lol: You just made me choke on my coffee!! Brilliant scheme!!!

        Gray hair? GRAY HAIR?!?!!!! Let me assure the Professor that FF does not, never has had and NEVER WILL HAVE gray hair! Let me just remind the Professor of another very wise old saying – ‘Blondes have more fun!’

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke February 11, 2014 at 19:38

        Sorry! Don’t want you to die. :D Vicious one too.

        You know, the professor never heard that saying before. Personally, I like gray hair lots. It’s very coolio looking. And only the wise get it.

        Never ever ever? You will one day, FEF.

      • 134 FictionFan February 11, 2014 at 21:40

        But brilliantly vicious!

        I’m not sure I want to be wise – it would be such a responsibility.

        Never, ever, ever!!! Not while one single bottle of dye remains on the supermarket shelves…

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke February 12, 2014 at 00:01

        Ooo!

        It is. :)

        While you’re at it, you should try blue dye.

      • 136 FictionFan February 12, 2014 at 02:06

        :lol: Of course! Poor Prof – what a burden for you!

        I was thinking purple, perhaps.

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke February 12, 2014 at 16:22

        :D It is!

        That would be nice.


Say something...anything...O Punchy Family!
