Things the Professor Has Never Done

This will be an interesting list.

images1. Never read or watched Harry Potter. It’s a bit before my time, see, since the first book was published in 1920. Then again, I am rather old, which means it’s probably right at my time. Still, never read or watched HP.

2. Just started texting–which is a wonder, since texting is all my peers do. Now I just noticed, the sudden, that this isn’t something I’ve never done. So, strike this one, please.

3. The professor has never skied. But I might want to. Though I’ve never really had a Snow_tops_ready_to_be_skieddesire, too. Someone would have to teach me how to do it. And I’d probably end up snow wrestling them. So it just wouldn’t work out.

4. The professor has never ate… Wait a few. I’ve never ate or eaten? I’m not sure. But I’ve never ate (eaten) a green olive and a black olive at once. I think it might be an experience of a life time, though.


The moon as it really is.

5. Now, this one might surprise you: But I’ve never been to the moon. Which is odd, seeing as I identify with the moon. Don’t you think this professor is like the moon?

6. I’ve never captured a worm that was alive. They always seem to die when I catch them. Either from fear or the touch. I think I have a poison touch, the sudden.

7. The professor has never pierced his ears or tattooed his nose. Doesn’t that make you proud of me right the sudden?

    *goes for a high five* I have never done any of those things either. :-D
    Well, except I did go to the moon once. It was an accident. And I texted someone while I was there, but that is a chapter of my life which I would rather not go back to.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2015 at 12:36

      *high-five* Now…you went to the moon? Did it have something to do with Loki?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 October 1, 2015 at 19:17

        Nope. *considers* Well, it might have. I do know that it involved cookies. Wellll, a LOT of cookies. Some crazy teleporter-ability-metahuman sent me to the Moon. Fortunately I had an oxygen capsule on me at the time. I texted the Doctor (using Martha’s phone–don’t ask me how or why I had it–okay, so MAYBE I had borrowed the Doctor’s coat and Martha’s phone was in the pocket) and asked him to get me down. I somehow got Loki instead. He wanted me to bow, so I did that, and then I slapped him really hard. The Doctor finally turned up, looking for his coat, had a staredown with Loki (who is a couple of centuries older, but the Doctor is, quite frankly, much more experienced), reclaimed his coat, and finally took me home. Loki was *ticked off*. He said he’d wanted to take me out for dinner. Creep.
        I ended up going to Barcelona (the planet, not the city) with the Doctor for dinner. We had extraterrestrial gelato. It was good. (Yes, that was *all* we had for dinner. Don’t judge :-P)

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2015 at 13:25

        *laughing lots* What an adventure! But who is this Martha chap?

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2015 at 14:01

        Martha was the Doctor’s friend and travelling companion for a while. Then she had to go home. Then I sort of fell into the TARDIS off the roof of a moving train. I’m a bit of an adventurer, you see.

  2. 6 fauquetmichel September 17, 2015 at 14:58

    Probaby you preserve what you have not done for your old age !! hey we have to be claivoyant!!! :)
    In friendship

    • 7 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:30

      So very true. After all, it’s a cool way to be.

  3. 8 Lady Dunamis September 17, 2015 at 13:31

    I have read and watched all of Harry Potter. Son, you are or should I say have been missing out. If you rip a JK Rolling book, you would be the man of the hour and of course I would be waiting anxiously for you to do so.

    Olives are without a doubt a very offensive food. Almost ungodly.

    • 9 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:19

      Now, now. Is that a challenge to rip an HP book? I might just do it. The first one, I suppose. Thought I might die through the process, in which case you must pay for my funeral.

      *laughs* But…but…they’re tasty!

      • 10 Lady Dunamis September 20, 2015 at 13:25

        Of course that is a challenge and I am most confident you will live afterwards. Although Voldermort might think otherwise.

        Be warned PVJ, these are children’s stories but quite engaging and very well written. You might like it.

        As for olives…..yuck👎

      • 11 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:15

        Now, who is this chap Voldemort?

        I shan’t! *bangs feet and then growls*

        Even the green ones with red pebbles?

      • 12 Lady Dunamis September 23, 2015 at 20:02

        Read the book and you will soon see. In the beginning he is quite the phantom until later.

        And yea even the Christmas colored olive are gross.

      • 13 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:28

        *squints eyes* I think Susan put you up to this!

        *laughs* I’m still going to get you some for Christmas.

      • 14 Lady Dunamis September 24, 2015 at 12:45

        Susan is innocent. As for you, you are quite the diabolical one 👉😈

      • 15 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:03

        I am not…why, just look at my sweet little smile!

      • 16 Lady Dunamis September 25, 2015 at 13:18

        That’s what all the devious people say.

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:20

        Look…I’m actually sipping tea. How mean could that be?

      • 18 Lady Dunamis September 25, 2015 at 13:25

        We all know that tea has a shot of vodka in it. 😉

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2015 at 00:05

        *laughing lots and drinks it fast* You can’t prove it!

      • 20 Lady Dunamis September 26, 2015 at 00:21

        Alas you are correct.

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2015 at 18:50

        I win, then.

  4. 22 Simply Skeptical September 16, 2015 at 18:43

    Those who have missed HP whether on purpose or not CONGRATULATIONS!
    I’m not sure you’ll ever find a ski instructor Professor since the pre-requisite is a wrestle in the snow or two, or three, or more. Maybe best to focus on that trip to the moon. :-)

    • 23 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 13:00

      *laughs* Not a HP fan either? I’m astounded. Now, the trip to the moon. I even have a tour guide, the sudden.

  5. 24 tanazmasaba September 16, 2015 at 15:43

    Incredibly proud to know you haven’t pierced your ears or tattooed your nose! I haven’t done any of the things you haven’ done (except I did watch all the Harry Potter movies. Never read the books though!)

    And OMG you have never been to the moon? That’s it. I am booking an outerspace flight for you.

    • 25 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 12:57

      So you don’t like tattoos either? Capitol, I say! *fist thingy* Now, what did you make of the HP movies?

      Yes, please do! Have you been there before? Perfect. You can show me around, if you don’t mind.

      • 26 tanazmasaba September 17, 2015 at 13:41

        *fist thingy* ((cause girls do fist thingy)) I thought the HP movies were full of inaccuracies. Witches don’t use wands for magic–they just twitch their nose! 😉

        Ofcourse I don’t mind! I would love to give you a tour through the craters. Strange things lie there you know. *cue X-files theme song*

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:24

        *mouth drops all the way to the dirt* You did the fist thingy! Brilliant. You, madam, are a very cool person. *laughing lots* That’s true! Witches do do that sort of thing. Now, have you ever met a witch?

        Oooo….you must! What an adventure. Are there overgrown rodents in the craters?

  6. 28 Farah September 16, 2015 at 14:50

    Seems the majority of people are shocked that you haven’t watched/read Harry Potter but HOW have you not watched at least one?! Even my parents have!
    It would be more of a sin if the film was something like The Lion King, instead.

    • 29 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 12:56

      I don’t know! Aren’t they soooooo old? That could be the thing. Now, did your parents like them, do you suppose?

      The Lion King! I’ve seen that. I bet you’re proud of me, the sudden.

      • 30 Farah September 17, 2015 at 19:20

        Not really that old! And well, my mum loved them. My dad on the other hand… wasn’t entirely convinced.
        Indeed I am, it’s a classic.

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:38

        It’s…so old! Before the professor’s time. Wait…that can’t be right. You know, I’m joining your dad. I’ll sit next to him on the couch and we’ll watch the Patriots or something.

        It is! I think I’m a lion, in fact.

  7. 32 E. September 15, 2015 at 20:25

    The moon is quite lovely this time of year, I’ve heard. There’s no time like the present to do what you will, don’t you know. Also WHY haven’t you read Harry Potter???? That must be fixed, pronto! Maybe you can catch up while on your way to the moon.

    • 33 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:10

      *laughing* Because HP…isn’t it for kids?! You know it is!

      Now, the moon is spectacular. Don’t you want to go to the moon?

      • 34 E. September 16, 2015 at 16:12

        If you read it, you’ll know it is SO TOTALLY NOT just for kids.
        Sometimes I want to go to the moon. And sometimes the vacuum of space scares me and makes me feel small so I decide to stay on earth instead.

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 12:58

        *mouth drops* Are you sure?

        You should go to the moon! Imagine the space people you might find!

      • 36 E. September 17, 2015 at 18:06

        Hmm, space people is a compelling argument…
        And yes I am sure!

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:35

        No, you’re not sure, the sudden.

        Yes! We can live among them. I wonder if they’d accept us or throw us off the moon?

      • 38 E. September 20, 2015 at 00:46

        You wanna bet how sure I am? For an educated man, Professor, you make some silly mistakes.
        I think moon people are either very reclusive or very rude. After all, they live in our orbit and haven’t even stopped by to say hello!

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:48

        I…I…you’re so unfair, the sudden. Well, of course I’m not that educated. Still, I think HP and I might war all the time. We’re opposites, don’t you think.

        Good point! We could always give them some granola, and gift their leader with the tent you’re carrying on your back.

      • 40 E. September 20, 2015 at 00:52

        You’re both inquisitive chaps who find themselves on marvelous adventures and sticky situations – how different are you, really?
        How did I wind up carrying the tent the sudden? You’re the one who wanted to being the blasted thing!

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:12

        Oh…when you put it like that… Well…I…um…huff-hum.

        *laughing* It’s your turn!

      • 42 E. September 23, 2015 at 19:26

        Ha, now you have no excuse my to read it!
        Is not, it’s your tent!

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:27

        Hmm…I think you’ve tricked me, madam.

        But…but…you’re not fair, the sudden!

      • 44 E. September 24, 2015 at 17:10

        *evil laughter* it’s what I do.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:16

        Then…then…I won’t give you a cookie!

      • 46 E. September 25, 2015 at 16:40

        That’s fine, I’m not a big fan of cookies anyway.

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2015 at 00:11

        Oh come on, E! You must like some sort of cookie! How about…peanut butter?

      • 48 E. September 25, 2015 at 16:41

        That’s fine, I can buy my own cookies.

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2015 at 00:11

        Hmm. But it’s not fun buying your own cookies. Cookies taste better if they’re bought by professors, I hear.

      • 50 E. September 26, 2015 at 00:31

        I’ve heard that too. But as far as cookies go I’m picky about them.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2015 at 18:50

        Wow. A picky cookie eater! I’m astounded.

      • 52 E. September 27, 2015 at 21:25

        I know, I’m baffling to scientists and humanitarians alike.

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke September 28, 2015 at 20:16

        *laughing* that’s why you’re so cool.

      • 54 E. September 28, 2015 at 21:37

        Well thank you!

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke September 29, 2015 at 12:33


  8. 56 John W. Howell September 15, 2015 at 20:18

    Gotta feel sorry for the worms. As far a skiing is concerned it’s fun and you should find someone to teach you. I would except I am no longer able to ski.

    • 57 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:10

      Rats and a Heifer. I was holding out hope that you would teach me. Oh well. Is it dangerous? I hear that it is.

  9. 58 Nimmi September 15, 2015 at 19:45

    Wow! What a list 😜 MOON, WORMS and OLIVES are matching the professors style and ski is something I too want to do 😊

    • 59 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:10

      They sure are! A weird list, I grant you, madam. Yes! Ski. Let’s do it then. But watch out for the trees, I hear.

      • 60 Nimmi September 16, 2015 at 19:47

        See I know you very well 😛 Come on let’s do it. Oh, yes! And the rocks as well are dangerous dear!!!

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 13:02

        Okay, we shall attempt to dodge. Still, it will be hard, I’m thinking.

      • 62 Nimmi September 17, 2015 at 18:50

        Dodge??? Where and why? ☺

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:37

        Just so we don’t land on the rocks, see.

      • 64 Nimmi September 20, 2015 at 15:55

        Haha.. smart huh!! 😊

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:16

        Only every other day.

      • 66 Nimmi September 23, 2015 at 20:40

        Haha :D Cool!!

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:29

  10. 69 Heartafire September 15, 2015 at 15:30

    Hi Professor, I will never read Harry Potter, I am busy flipping houses. I am forced to text, my friends prefer that over direct contact. I am not in close to snow but will travel. That moon looks like a moldy watermelon, are you saving it for something? I don’t like to touch worms, dousing them with salt, wow, that’s amazing. I am impressed that you have not mutilated yourself with piercings/tattoos, hat’s off! Don’t give in to peer pressure. I have a feeling there are some things you are holding back on, eventually you know we will find out. Have a lovely day.

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:08

      Flipping houses! *laughing* You must get me in on that. Now, now, no picking on the moon! Did you know you can have a moon tan? Like a sun tan only a moon tan. You should do it. I’m about trying it out.

      Dousing them with salt? You do that? Wicked!! But still, awesomely cool.

      *laughs* You’re surprised about that? Humph noodles.

      • 71 Heartafire September 16, 2015 at 18:13

        I love moon tans. I don’t see why the authorities have to get involved, do you?

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 12:58

        No, I don’t see why. You should take it to them a bit.

      • 73 Heartafire September 17, 2015 at 19:54

        right you are, it’s my moon!

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:40

        And mine!!

      • 75 Heartafire September 20, 2015 at 00:47

        they want to get their grubby little paws on everything nowadays!

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:09

        I know! We should shoot them off. I’m gory, today. And filthy.

      • 77 Heartafire September 24, 2015 at 02:50

        yes they must be shot, I am gory as well, probably filthy too.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:33

        *laughing* Isn’t it glorious to be filthy and gory? You know it is.

      • 79 Heartafire September 24, 2015 at 13:13

        I am beaming. I am a filthy and gory girl. Ask anyone.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:06

        *laughs* Nice! It’s great to be filthy. Who needs showers anyway.

      • 81 Heartafire September 25, 2015 at 13:43

        Saturday is the big day for showers around here.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2015 at 00:06

        Baby showers?

      • 83 Heartafire September 26, 2015 at 13:38

        it never showers babies, cats and dogs, no babies.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2015 at 19:02

        *laughs* How wicked of you.

      • 85 Heartafire September 27, 2015 at 20:27

        I am…looks ashamed but isn’t really

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke September 28, 2015 at 20:14

        *laughing* No more cherry suckers!

      • 87 Heartafire September 28, 2015 at 20:17

        you are wicked!

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke September 28, 2015 at 20:24

        I’m brutal and mean and twisted!

      • 89 Heartafire September 28, 2015 at 20:39


  11. 90 Debbie September 15, 2015 at 14:45

    Well, if I must, I’ll confess I’ve read ALL the Harry Potter books — and seen ALL the movies, too. It’s a mom’s job to know what her kid and his friends are interested in, you know.

    I love texting! It’s a great form of conversation when you have to be quiet. I can send pictures, too. Much like Twitter, only you’re not restricted to 140 characters.

    I’ve VERY proud of you for #7!! Needles are designed to inflict pain. Domer says so, and I’m with him!

    • 91 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:07

      *laughs* Good excuse! Now, what did you think of it?

      Yes! Isn’t it quite handy? I love it myself. You can bother people any time anywhere. It’s quite a beautiful weapon.

      *laughs* Don’t you think I might look spicy with a tattoo, though?

      • 92 Debbie September 16, 2015 at 21:02

        Actually, I rather liked the HP books. There were some parts that dragged, of course, but overall, yes, they held my attention, probably because of the plot and characters. And ditto for the movies!

        No, as a mom I have to frown on tattoos. Permanent ink on your body wouldn’t be a spicy look. But you know, certain professions (the creative ones like musicians, artists, chefs, etc.) tend to attract people who have tattoos and piercings. We’re not supposed to judge, but it’s hard not to when we see somebody with full sleeves and ear gauges! *wink*

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 13:06

        *laughs* Now, I’m supposing Domer liked them, too, which is a good sign for me. They’re just so long ago, that I can’t remember them, the sudden.

        *laughing lots* I agree with you completely! My mom tells me the same thing overall. It’s all a wonder. Still, imagine fake tattoos! All the people you could fool!

  12. 94 Susan P September 15, 2015 at 14:16

    I read HP all the way through and then I watched all of the movies. I am not ashamed.

    • 95 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:06

      You HP fan you! Did you like it lots or only littles?

      • 96 Susan P September 17, 2015 at 14:17

        I found some good value along the way. Why do you not like it?

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:28

        Because Harry and I are opposites. Wouldn’t you say?

      • 98 Susan P September 20, 2015 at 16:29

        That is a good start.

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:21

        And end, you must admit.

      • 100 Susan P September 23, 2015 at 21:09

        I do not have to do any such thing.

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:31

        *stomps foot* You’re not fair either!

      • 102 Susan P September 24, 2015 at 15:49

        If some fool told you that life was going to be fair you need to find that fool and sue him.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:12

        *laughing* You’ve such good points. But…it was Brock Lesnar who told me that!

  13. 104 Susan P September 15, 2015 at 14:13

    That moon appears to have mold all over it. How do you explain that?

    • 105 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:05

      Well, no one regularly cleans it! We should go up there. Or, rather, you should send someone up there.

      • 106 Susan P September 17, 2015 at 14:14

        I vote for sending someone to the moon. Who should it be?

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:28

        Maybe George and me?

      • 108 Susan P September 20, 2015 at 16:28

        And the one with the pony tail.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:21

        You mean Julia?

      • 110 Susan P September 23, 2015 at 21:09

        That be the one. Unless she cuts her hair. Then she might be someone else.

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:31

        Maybe she’ll be even meaner!

      • 112 Susan P September 24, 2015 at 15:48

        Why don’t you try and find out?

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:12

        Okay, I’ll cut her hair off…

  14. 114 L. Marie September 15, 2015 at 13:32

    Do you feel better for having confessed? If so, good. Now it’s time for you to head to the olive bar at your local grocery store. . . . (Seriously, my grocery store has an olive bar.)
    Okay, maybe the olive bar is not your thing. But what is? Barging into Greta’s castle? No, I won’t let that go. You said she was hopelessly in love with you. I think we need details.

    • 115 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:03

      And olive bar! Do you snatch olives? I’d be very tempted. I might snatch two or three or even four.

      *laughs* Should I write a story on it?

      • 116 L. Marie September 16, 2015 at 18:14

        Yes, you should write a story on it.
        I’m tempted, but I don’t sneak olives.

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 12:59

        Yes, rats. *kicks the dirt* I don’t sneak olives either, but I would have if you did! Okay, I shall write one on it.

  15. 118 walt walker September 15, 2015 at 13:14

    Good thing you’ve never read HP. I read the first one just to see what everyone was talking about. Then I read the next three too. They just get longer, less interesting, and more sloppily written. I skipped the next several, then read the last one. The last one reminded me why I skipped several. I’m glad they got they kiddos reading, but hoo-boy, what a bore. Now I fear I’ve offended many of the people who might read this comment. I am sorry about that, the sudden.

    • 119 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:02

      *laughing lots* You would, too. You would skip all the way to the end! You should’ve just read the story arc on Wikipedia. Now, I hear the first one is childish? Is it? And be proud of offense! Makes you like…Jason Statham, the sudden!

      • 120 walt walker September 17, 2015 at 00:59

        Chapter 1 and part of Chapter 2 (maybe) of the first book were very good. Very British writing (which automatically makes it better). Very witty and proper, yet also whimsical and other-worldly. You could tell she was writing hard in those first few pages, or rather polishing hard, crafting and editing and such. Then she ran out of gas and started writing like her book was about to go on sale at midnight and lots of kids were lined up in costume at the bookstore waiting. But not to be a downer, never you mind! In other news, cashew sprinkled cherry suckers are on sale and I’m buying!

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 13:08

        What a great take on such things. It’s very cool to see the philosophy of Mr. Walker’s mind. Now, that makes sense to me. But what’s this about the suckers? You must be joking! Get me 100 please.

      • 122 walt walker September 17, 2015 at 21:03

        I’ve orded 2 dozens (of 100 each) from the Amazon. They should be arriving by boat, captained by a Warrior Princess, no less. You know, an Amazonian one.

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:43

        Oh. Do you think we can capture her and have her do labors? Like Hercules. Plus, this is good news.

  16. 124 InfiniteZip September 15, 2015 at 13:07

    I like the moon….I have tattoo…but not on my nose, but on my, um….moon. Two olives at once is divine as is olives stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese….skiing is too cold, snow wrestling is fun…I have never tweeted…but I can barely manage a text…but with these huge fingers, it makes it kind of hard….rightly so.

    • 125 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:01

      You have a tattoo on your moon? How fascinating. I wish I had a moon! My personal moon. I might take expeditions to it.

      Zippy, if you have huge fingers…you must pick up your guitar again! And ski with it, too.

      • 126 InfiniteZip September 16, 2015 at 13:04

        You are asking a lot…but these big fingers will be lifting glasses of wine in Florida tomorrow….not taking the guitar….just the mom, but she’s fun so we shall explore and pick up seashells….and drink margaritas and such🍹🌴☀️

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:14

        Oh nice! Have a great time. Pick up a seashell for me. I’m told you can hear hades in a seashell if you put it up to your ear. Is that right?

      • 128 InfiniteZip September 17, 2015 at 17:52

        Hades? Does that mean hell? Is it in your ear I wonder? Haven’t hit the beach yet…. Maybe tomorrow…or the next day…by the pool as we speak though😊

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:34

        Ooo! Jump in and have a splash for me. Do a cannonball right in front of someone…

      • 130 InfiniteZip September 20, 2015 at 11:41

        Oh, now I don’t think they would like that, but I did see a knight in armor yesterday with swords…he was guarding a Picasso…..but it didn’t have a price….and I don’t think he’d fit on he return flight home….but now that would be a sight😊

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2015 at 19:15

        You should absolutely get a suit of armor! And lone it to me…

      • 132 InfiniteZip September 23, 2015 at 19:38

        They didn’t have a price tag on it…maybe it was free? But he did have a shiny silver sword and a coat of arms…..kind of creepy, felt like he was watching me…kind of like an old Scooby-Doo episode.

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke September 24, 2015 at 12:28

        Yes! You should’ve taken the sword at least. And sent it to me. I would’ve played with it.

      • 134 InfiniteZip September 24, 2015 at 13:02

        Noooo…they had cameras…it was guarding a Picasso after all….no touchy the pricy stuff I suppose😀

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke September 25, 2015 at 13:05

        So unfair, the sudden.

  17. 136 FictionFan September 15, 2015 at 13:07

    1. Time for a readalong! We should start with Book 1, since I’m a stickler for tradition…
    2. Oh dear! Well, at least now you’ll be able to drop all the vowels instead of just discriminating against the poor ‘u’s.
    3. This is a skill you must master before the yeti hunt begins…
    4. Olives are Abomination!
    5. I thought you were the Man in the Moon. You should go, it’s nice there, and you could take pictures of the cow jumping over it.
    6. Perhaps you only catch ones that are already poorly. Maybe the healthy ones are too quick for you. Anyway, mounting the heads of live worms on your walls would be both cruel and icky…
    7. Very, very, very, very, very, very, very proud. Indeed!

    • 137 Susan P September 15, 2015 at 14:15

      I could not have said it better myself.

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:05

        Oh, but you didn’t even try!

      • 139 Susan P September 17, 2015 at 14:15

        Perfection does not need to try. However.

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:28

        *laughing* You got me.

    • 141 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 13:01

      A read along? No! *stamps foot and crosses arms* The first book is for kids, I hear, and I’m soooooooooooooo old. Like BUS.

      *laughs* Do you know, though, I don’t even use text speak. I’m sure I don’t know it. So…still discriminating!

      I know. Have you ever skied?

      But the things inside the green olives are awesome. The olive is like the outer shell that needs removed.

      The cow! I might ride that fellow. If he’s still about jumping over the moon.

      I wouldn’t do that! That’d be heartless. And since I’m heartless, I wouldn’t do that!!

      Yes, now, but I might get a chain.

  18. 142 PorterGirl September 15, 2015 at 12:11

    I have also never read Harry Potter, or seen a film all the way through. I saw a bit of one once whilst a collection of small people were in my house and they were watching it. The Professor has done many, many things that no one else has ever done so this small collection of things you have never done is a wonder.

    • 143 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2015 at 12:57

      Never either? Hurrah. *fist thingy* Now, the question is: What did thou think of the film you saw? I’ve got a buddy who loves HP to death. I’m always picking on him about it, I fear.

      Ever skied?

      • 144 PorterGirl September 16, 2015 at 20:36

        *fist thingy* I found it a bit annoying but I liked Alan Rickman. You should pick on him!
        I have never skied!

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2015 at 13:05

        Alan Rickman is rather funny. *laughs* I do! He just shakes his head at me, poor chap.

        Never ever? Hmm. We must move to the mountains.

      • 146 PorterGirl September 17, 2015 at 13:39

        I am thinking we must. But only to little mountains as I am afraid of heights. You may have to hold my hand.

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke September 20, 2015 at 00:23

        *laughs* You’re afraid of heights? Okay, I shall, if it helps.

      • 148 PorterGirl September 27, 2015 at 07:44

        I am a little. Thank you!

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2015 at 19:09

        Me too! If things get up too high.

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