Snowing, Veggies, and Hot Dogs…

professor speaks

And so, it begins…

giphy

(Isn’t that what you think of every time someone says that? Théoden was so useless in that battle, I can’t believe it.)

But, I meant something differently different:

20160216_092141

Picture from the Professor Office.

Yes, it’s snowing. Again.

Not that there’s been too much snow. But really. Couldn’t it snow in December? At Christmas?

As it is now this professor is already ready for spring. In truth, that’s true.

*double sighs for everyone*

Anyways and some, I must, the sudden, show you two similar looking things that are really not the same. At least, I don’t think they’re the same.

Unknown

Zucchini

Now, look here, both are green and oblong, but they taste remarkably different.

This is a good lesson, you see. It goes to show you that you can be similar to another thing, but you probably taste differently.

That’s why they say,

“No two pigs are the same; no two pieces of bacon taste the same.”*

Enough of that. It borderlines on dadblamery.

One more thing.

I came across this picture the other day.

hot-dog

Now, do you suppose this is a hot dog? Goodness.

I bet that chap in the bun tastes nothing like a hotdog. Which goes to show you that even if you try to look the same, you’ll still be different, because not only do you not taste the same, you don’t look the same either. #ProfessorishLogic

Wait. Having another thought.

If two things that look the same taste differently [i.e. Mr. Zucchini and Mr. Cucumber], does that mean that two things that look differently taste the same?! Wow. Mind blown. #NewProfessorishTheory

In conclusion, that chap in the bun tastes like a hotdog.

*I’m sure someone somewhere said this, aren’t you?

    That is the cutest dog ever! I would never eat a hot dog, especially not with a real dog in it, though I would happily eat both zuc’s and cucumbers.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:42

      Now, why would you never eat a hotdog? I might not either. *throws the one away he was about to eat*

      • 3 Sonya Solomonovich February 24, 2016 at 23:39

        That’s right, don’t eat it, professor! I hear it is made of gross and unwanted parts of meat. I would especially not eat one if it was a real dog because I love dogs.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:43

        Yes, who could eat that dog? Not this professor. Is it really? *gags and dies*

  2. 5 Hazy February 17, 2016 at 13:37

    Theoden at least delivered a pep talk for his troops didn’t he?

    Snowing again? A good time for a warm cup of tea or cocoa. Or sledding again. Preferably not done together I suppose. Do cucumber and zucchinis grow in spring?

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:05

      Did he? Nah, he lost hope, the old heifer! I say off with his head!

      I think they both grow in the summer, actually, tho I’m not too sure about that. The professor is a bad farmer, see.

  3. 7 Ms. Vee February 16, 2016 at 22:35

    This is too funny Professor! The snow picture is beautiful. There is fruit brand name is Grapple. Looks like an apple, taste like a grape! Another one looks like an orange and taste like a lemon. 😄

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:03

      Really? Now that is something. It’s fake, I tell you! Fake!!

      • 9 Ms. Vee February 18, 2016 at 19:50

        But it’s delicious! Yum🍎🍇🍊

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:37

        So are cherry suckers…

      • 11 Ms. Vee February 19, 2016 at 14:41

        But they aren’t healthy. Sugar is not good for you.🍒

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:25

        Brown sugar?

      • 13 Ms. Vee February 22, 2016 at 14:43

        Everything in moderation Professor. Brown sugar is a little better.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:44

        How’s a peach?

      • 15 Ms. Vee February 22, 2016 at 14:45

        Natural sweetness. yummy

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:37

        And maybe a few ticks in there.

      • 17 Ms. Vee February 23, 2016 at 13:49

        No..that’s disgusting!

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:50

        Nah…you think?

      • 19 Ms. Vee February 23, 2016 at 13:52

        Yes. I’m sure of it!

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:18

        Ticks are great things, really.

      • 21 Ms. Vee February 24, 2016 at 14:21

        They are disgusting and gross!!!

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:32

        They’re like tiny vampires, see.

      • 23 Ms. Vee February 24, 2016 at 14:34

        Yes they are. Yulk!!!!!

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:22

        You have to learn how to see their…beauty!!

      • 25 Ms. Vee February 25, 2016 at 14:44

        Nothing beautiful about them!

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:26

        Not even their antlers?

      • 27 Ms. Vee February 25, 2016 at 23:29

        What antlers? No.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:43

        You know, the little things that come out of their heads?

      • 29 Ms. Vee February 25, 2016 at 23:47

        LOL. Yes
        😯

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:10

        Haha.

      • 31 Ms. Vee February 26, 2016 at 14:12

        Bugs give me the heebie jeebies!

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:29

        Even wasps?

      • 33 Ms. Vee February 26, 2016 at 16:24

        Yes they sting. Ouch!

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:38

        Not the professor, tho.

      • 35 Ms. Vee February 29, 2016 at 20:30

        Why not?

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 02:13

        I’m not sure. They just never come after me!

      • 37 Ms. Vee March 1, 2016 at 02:14

        It must be your aftershave!

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke March 2, 2016 at 19:05

        Havnen’t shaved in years. Well, sorta.

      • 39 Ms. Vee March 2, 2016 at 19:44

        LOL! Well maybe it’s your body chemistry! You know some people can’t wear a watch…

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:39

        Really? Why?

      • 41 Ms. Vee March 3, 2016 at 14:43

        Because of their metabolism and watch doesn’t keep time

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:52

        Oohhhhhh. Now things are getting complicated.

      • 43 Ms. Vee March 3, 2016 at 14:55

        Isn’t that always the case?

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke March 4, 2016 at 15:17

        *nods* Yeah, always seems that way.

      • 45 Ms. Vee March 4, 2016 at 15:19

        I hope you have a wonderful weekend Professor!

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke March 4, 2016 at 15:34

        You too!

      • 47 Ms. Vee March 4, 2016 at 15:35

        Thank you!😃

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke March 7, 2016 at 20:33

        For sure!

  4. 49 L. Marie February 16, 2016 at 21:17

    It’s snowing here again too, Professor.
    The puppy in the bun reminds me of the wieiner dog commercial during the Super Bowl. :-D

    • 50 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:03

      There was one of those in the SB? I don’t remember, the sudden! I didn’t watch much of it either.

      • 51 L. Marie February 18, 2016 at 15:27

        It was a Heinz commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNN9nL2vppM

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:30

        Hahahaha. That is funny. Boy they can run!

  5. 53 John W. Howell February 16, 2016 at 21:06

    If two things look the same and taste different and two things taste the same but look different can we say two things are always different in some ways?

    • 54 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:02

      #MindBlown I think we could, the sudden. I mean, why not? No skin off my back. Let’s do it, I say. *nods*

      • 55 John W. Howell February 18, 2016 at 22:35

        Good idea.

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:38

        But it was all yours. I’ll take half credit.

      • 57 John W. Howell February 19, 2016 at 21:59

        I knew you would.

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:34

        Which is disconcerting, don’t you know.

      • 59 John W. Howell February 22, 2016 at 17:39

        I’ll bet.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:45

        Betting is illegal, the sudden.

      • 61 John W. Howell February 23, 2016 at 13:58

        I’ll not bet but guess you are right.

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:20

        It’s always good to wager a guess.

      • 63 John W. Howell February 24, 2016 at 16:38

        Wager is against the law too.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:33

        Is it? Dadblameit. Everything is against the law nowadays.

      • 65 John W. Howell February 25, 2016 at 19:56

        Yes. Sadly.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:42

        Let’s just rebel.

      • 67 John W. Howell February 26, 2016 at 02:08

        I have a grey hat.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:22

        Not a gray one?

      • 69 John W. Howell February 26, 2016 at 22:01

        Mine’s sexier than normal

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:46

        Now I’m sorta jealous here.

      • 71 John W. Howell February 29, 2016 at 18:49

        No. Don’t be

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 02:12

        But…but…now I’m not sure what to do about it.

      • 73 John W. Howell March 1, 2016 at 14:18

        Just start a rebellion. Here I’ll toss the first stone. *clunk against the wall*

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke March 2, 2016 at 19:16

        And I’ll toss the second! *toss* When will it start?

      • 75 John W. Howell March 2, 2016 at 20:57

        Heave it and we will see.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:41

        I’m too lazy for heaving. You do it.

      • 77 John W. Howell March 3, 2016 at 17:20

        No you do it.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke March 4, 2016 at 15:24

        No. You.

      • 79 John W. Howell March 4, 2016 at 17:50

        Alright. Stand back.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke March 7, 2016 at 20:39

        *stands WAY back*

      • 81 John W. Howell March 8, 2016 at 01:47

        *Throws*

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke March 9, 2016 at 14:28

        *waits for an explosion*

      • 83 John W. Howell March 9, 2016 at 21:36

        *Fingers in ears*

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke March 10, 2016 at 14:04

        I think I heard it…

      • 85 John W. Howell March 10, 2016 at 20:28

        Now I smell the chocolate

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke March 11, 2016 at 14:06

        That’s a good sign.

      • 87 John W. Howell March 11, 2016 at 14:09

        Most certainly

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke March 11, 2016 at 14:12

        I say if it materializes we split 60/40.

      • 89 John W. Howell March 11, 2016 at 20:21

        Sixty for me. How generous.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke March 14, 2016 at 14:05

        Now, now, no stealing. 40 for you.

      • 91 John W. Howell March 14, 2016 at 14:09

        Aw. No fair.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke March 14, 2016 at 14:13

        I know. I would do something about it if I could, see.

  6. 93 Simply Skeptical February 16, 2016 at 20:36

    No Professor I do believe this is uniquely Professorish. Cute little dog in the bun. Warm and cozy, but definitely not edible.

    • 94 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:02

      Well, now, SS, it most definitely is edible. But you might not want to eat it. It’s raw on the inside, see.

      • 95 Simply Skeptical February 18, 2016 at 21:40

        You’re are very clever Professor! I think puppy DOG looks quite proud too!!

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:38

        I like his ears best. I’m infatuated with dog ears. My dogs get their ears stroked all the time, poor beasts.

  7. 97 Susan P February 16, 2016 at 20:04

    That there looks like animal cruelty!

    • 98 Jackie February 16, 2016 at 20:23

      You’re right about that!!

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:01

        But why’s it cruel of him to be in a hot dog bun?

      • 100 Jackie February 18, 2016 at 18:16

        How would you feel if you were a certain type of doggy -supposedly all of them are man’s best friend- and people always referred to you as food? I’m guessing everyone laughed cause they thought that doggy looked so cute and funny in a bun. Can you imagine the humiliation for that poor doggy? Worst of all the doggy just sits there … obediently … and let’s the humans do whatever they want. How is that NOT cruel, Professor?! How??

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:35

        Well, I mean, I’m supposing he’s not too upset about the matter, or he’d move. You know, if a bear was put in a bun, he’d probably move. Maybe he wouldn’t. I’m thinking that chap is enjoying himself. Look here, I bet it’s halloween, and he’s going as hotdog. Sorta like when Toby went as a ketchup bottle. Plus, look at the smile on his face!

      • 102 Jackie February 19, 2016 at 14:37

        I don’t know Professor …. I’ll have to give what your saying some thought. I’ll let you know if I change my opinion.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:39

        *bows* Do you even like hotdogs?

      • 104 Jackie February 19, 2016 at 14:44

        I like veggie dogs but only during the warmer months. In the colder months I like vegan sausage.

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:25

        Yeah, hotdogs scare me, too, if I’m honest.

      • 106 Jackie February 22, 2016 at 14:45

        Some food can be really scary. There’s usually a reason for that.

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:38

        Avocados are scary. *shudders*

      • 108 Jackie February 23, 2016 at 13:46

        No they are not! They are delicious and good for you too.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:50

        But they’re green and mushy!

      • 110 Jackie February 23, 2016 at 13:55

        I know! They make a great dip for chips – yum!

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:19

        Now, I’m sorta hungry. Hm.

      • 112 Jackie February 24, 2016 at 14:22

        You should try it sometime. I think it will change your opinion of avocados.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:32

        Okay, I shall, then. But still. They’re just a tiny bit scary.

      • 114 Jackie February 24, 2016 at 14:51

        You’re a brave warrior I’m sure you can muster up the courage.

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:23

        *laughs* You’re right! I can get from somewhere.

    • 116 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:01

      Nah. Check it out: Doesn’t he look rather pleased that he could fit in the bun? See, it’s a squeezing into tiny places contest. He trained hard for that. Don’t make him feel bad!

      • 117 Susan P February 18, 2016 at 15:24

        Poor wee lad.

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:28

        Who, the professor?

      • 119 Susan P February 20, 2016 at 14:20

        that would be you

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:38

        Then who is Spitz Mulligan?

      • 121 Susan P February 22, 2016 at 14:40

        I could tell you but …

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:44

        But…?

      • 123 Susan P February 22, 2016 at 14:46

        I’d have to shoot you.

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:38

        Well, as long as you don’t bite my face off. #AliceCooper

      • 125 Susan P February 23, 2016 at 14:16

        Apparently, I got on someone’s nerves last night. Is it anything like that?

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:22

        Maybe that’s it. It’s fun to get on people’s nerves, see.

      • 127 Susan P February 24, 2016 at 14:23

        Well, sometimes. But one must consider whether or not it is worth the grief afterword.

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:33

        Yeah, if the grief isn’t too demanding, I’d say.

  8. 129 Heartafire February 16, 2016 at 19:58

    My mind is blown, you really dug deep with this one Professor. I despise Zucchini’s , don’t try to slip them in my soup either. I like pickles, bread and butter pickles (baby cukes). I would like to have the little weener dog. Those Germans sure know how to breed their dogs. I do love Germans don’t get me wrong, that’s a compliment there. Lovely day, stay warm, it’s way down in the 70’s here…brrrr.

    • 130 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:00

      70s? And you think that’s cold? *huffs and puffs*

      But…Hollie…what about fried zucchini?

      • 131 Heartafire February 18, 2016 at 15:22

        dipped in ranch…yes!!

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:28

        Aha! So you do like zucchini!

      • 133 Heartafire February 19, 2016 at 16:50

        I guess so. With a dip. I’m picky about the dip though

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:30

        Yes, me too. Dips must be the right dip. Or it’s not the right dip.

      • 135 Heartafire February 22, 2016 at 14:31

        I really like spinach and artichoke dip.

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:43

        Oh, me too!

  9. 137 Nancy Loderick February 16, 2016 at 19:30

    Well Professor,

    You sure gave us some food for thought this week! Both figuratively and literally! What a professorish thing to do. :)

    Nancy

    • 138 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:00

      I felt completely wicked and professorish at the time, you must understand.

      • 139 Nancy Loderick February 22, 2016 at 18:02

        Hey Professor,

        Of course, I understand completely. :)

        Nancy

    I’m not sure, but I think my brain may have just exploded! This is a particularly Professorial post, well deserving of its imperial purple highlights! #PurpleRocks

    The thing is, do two things that don’t look the same and don’t taste the same still scream the same when you eat them? And who could possibly eat that adorable little hotdog?? I mean, there’s no mustard on it…

    • 142 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 14:56

      But I hate purple, of course. Isn’t it something? How it goes from one topic to the next? Haha. #proud

      Goodness. But do things scream when you eat them? I’ve never heard a scream. *gulps* That’d be unsettling, see. *laughing lots* You heartless thing!

  11. 143 kedslover February 16, 2016 at 17:58

    That’s the best looking hot dog I’ve ever seen! If I didn’t have a particular penchant for tiny adorable animals, I would probably reconsider my dinner plans.

    • 144 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 14:55

      *laughing* But you’d eat it like that? See, it’s raw on the inside, double-see.

      • 145 kedslover February 19, 2016 at 22:35

        Mm, I do see. How unfortunate. I suppose I’ll have to make do with a catsicle instead.

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:35

        *laughing lots* A catsicle! Get me one, too, please. Cherry.

      • 147 kedslover February 23, 2016 at 00:29

        Are you sure? They’re not for the faint of heart. And I’m a blueberry advocate, myself.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:48

        Well…are they…well…how are they made? I do love blueberry. But it’s so blue.

      • 149 kedslover February 23, 2016 at 16:01

        They’re made with much love and hugs and also some fluffy fur. Doesn’t that sound appetizing?

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:24

        *makes face* Err…yes…no! Are you sure? Maybe we should just stick with real icicles. I mean, popsicles.

      • 151 kedslover February 24, 2016 at 18:35

        Icicles sound fun though! I suppose you might eat them as a mix between candy canes and popsicles?

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:37

        I think you could. I’ve tried it once or twice. They’re quite tasty, icicles are. Just need some sugar, really, you know.

      • 153 kedslover February 29, 2016 at 18:15

        Ah, just like Cheerios!

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 02:11

        Haha. Yes. Only Cheerios come in different flavors, I think.

      • 155 kedslover March 2, 2016 at 20:53

        And they’re all equally flavorless, I tell you!

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:40

        *laughs* Are they seriously? I believe it. I’ve always wondered. Now I know.

      • 157 kedslover March 5, 2016 at 23:39

        *nods* I seek to warn those who are unaware.

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke March 7, 2016 at 20:46

        I’m now aware. You deserve some sort of award.

      • 159 kedslover March 8, 2016 at 16:26

        *clasps hands together* For meee?! :D

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke March 9, 2016 at 14:36

        Yes, maybe a…katana!

      • 161 kedslover March 10, 2016 at 03:23

        I love doze things! :D

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke March 10, 2016 at 14:05

        You do? *thrilled*

      • 163 kedslover March 13, 2016 at 20:02

        With all of my heart!

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke March 14, 2016 at 14:10

        So do I! They’re so spicy and sharp. And cool. Makes one a ninja, see.

      • 165 kedslover March 18, 2016 at 00:16

        Ah how cool! I’ll remember that.

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke March 18, 2016 at 14:40

        Yes, yes, you must.

  12. 167 Chris White February 16, 2016 at 17:09

    Ladies and gentlemen … I give you flavoured crisps or whatever they are called …. cheese & onion, bacon etc. Nothing tastes different …. merely our perception. I can taste gravitational waves now. One of the black holes was cheese & onion and the other was chicken.

    • 168 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 14:54

      *laughing lots* Aha! Now this is a thing. Goodness, if my theory goes live, I might get in a lot of trouble. You’d have to pitch a bit for me.

  13. 169 desertdweller29 February 16, 2016 at 15:45

    Dadblamery! All of it!

    You know Professor, it’s going to be 90 here. We can roast those hotdogs here. Cucumbers and zucchinis are for the snow birds.

    • 170 walt walker February 16, 2016 at 23:38

      90 is too hot for February, and everyone in cold, snowy lands is tired of cold and snow by now. Everyone should come to Texas, were it is a mild 70 degrees today here in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. And we have hot dogs.

      • 171 desertdweller29 February 17, 2016 at 00:36

        Party at Walt’s!!!

      • 172 walt walker February 17, 2016 at 01:21

        BYOB (buns)

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:05

        You don’t have buns? I might not come just because of that. I mean, what sort of hotdog party is that?!

      • 174 walt walker February 18, 2016 at 15:12

        See here, now. There are going to be, like, a lot of people here. A LOT. Tons. I’m providing the real estate, and excellent weather. And dogs. You’ve no idea how many dogs I’m having to round up. It’s not unreasonable to make it BYOB. There will be buns enough for all, provided you all provide them.

        Plus, Dick is coming. And there will be a contest. So you won’t want to miss that.

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:28

        And you’re providing the ghost, too. So, okay. I”ll have someone bring the buns, then. It’s only fair, I suppose. Dick is coming! Wow. You need to interview him.

      • 176 walt walker February 19, 2016 at 16:03

        Yes, have one of your assistants go get them and drop them by. Then it will be just like I provided them.

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:27

        Only I might put tags on them: Not provided by Mr. Walt. Maybe.

      • 178 walt walker February 22, 2016 at 14:55

        That would be good, to keep them from getting mixed in with my stock.

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:41

        Stock? I thought you said you didn’t have any?!

      • 180 walt walker February 23, 2016 at 15:14

        Well of course I have some. I eat hot dogs too, you know. And we will be dining inside, not outdoors with the ruffians.

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:23

        I hope there’s an elegant table. And three chairs. One for me and you.

      • 182 walt walker February 24, 2016 at 14:30

        And the third chair?

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:34

        For the ghost, of course. Unless, you invite Dick.

    • 184 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 14:53

      *mouth drops to the ground* 90?! DD, you be nice and send some heat here at once!

      • 185 desertdweller29 February 18, 2016 at 15:32

        Hah! I wish… Too hot here already. I will FedEx some sunshine promptly!

      • 186 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:30

        Go swimming, I say! Or go for a walk in the desert.

  14. 187 Debbie February 16, 2016 at 15:42

    ‘Tis nice of us to share our snows with you, Professor. Since you haven’t had very much, maybe you’ll appreciate it more than we do!

    I have no knowledge of those green things. I admit to being very picky when it comes to veggies (guess my taste buds aren’t any more refined than a five-year-old’s!)

    As for that poor weenie dog, I feel so sorry for that breed. Who got the idea of holding them in a bun anyway? That’s dadblamery, in my opinion! Just look at his little face — you can almost hear him saying, “Seriously???”

    • 188 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 14:52

      Had very much?! I’ve had enough. But this professor is so generous that I’m going to send it all to you as fastly fast as I can!

      *laughs* Debbie, you must eat your veggies. But, I believe, both are fruits! Isn’t that odd?

      Yes, but he doesn’t look scared, does he? He proves that in the face of sudden danger, it’s best to hold strong and have a good time.

  15. 189 PorterGirl February 16, 2016 at 15:13

    Lovely snow scene, Professor, but you must be fed up of all the coldness I imagine. Now – those green things – I think one is a cucumber and the other is a courgette. But you probably have different names for them over your side of the pond. As for things tasting the same and different – I say eat all the things and be done with it. They all come out the same way, after all.

    • 190 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 14:51

      Haha. Well, I call it a zucchini. But that’s hard to spell. See, courgette sounds like baguette. How’s one supposed to tell the difference there? I mean, imagine ordering a baguette and getting a courgette. That’s reason enough for a war, see.

      • 191 PorterGirl February 18, 2016 at 14:55

        In that case, I hope I get a courgette instead of a baguette because I think I could handle a war right now! Just a small one, I don’t want it to interfere with my lunch.

      • 192 Professor VJ Duke February 18, 2016 at 15:07

        But it would! Getting wrong food orders is the thingy that interferes with all meals. Imagine having to eat veggies over bread!

      • 193 PorterGirl February 18, 2016 at 15:09

        I hate anything that interferes with my food, that is the worst. Bread is for meat and cheese and nothing else! Well, maybe jam. And butter. But not veggies.

      • 194 Professor VJ Duke February 19, 2016 at 14:27

        Come now! Surely you’ve heard of veggie sandwiches? *tries not to gag in front of Lucy*

      • 195 PorterGirl February 20, 2016 at 12:44

        Ugh! I make it my business to keep out of the way of such things! *gags a little, but is still polite*

      • 196 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:38

        You can’t gag and be polite! Your mum should’ve taught you this.

      • 197 PorterGirl February 22, 2016 at 14:49

        Actually my nan taught me so it must be true!!

      • 198 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:40

        Hm. That’s like saying whatever’s on the internet is true. You can’t be sure, see.

      • 199 PorterGirl February 23, 2016 at 13:56

        My nan is much more reliable than the internet. She’s older, for a start.

      • 200 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:19

        Now that’s a good point. She is older. Like I am, too, I suppose.

      • 201 PorterGirl February 24, 2016 at 16:08

        Yes – and you are always right, after all.

      • 202 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:28

        Except on Sundays, mind.

      • 203 PorterGirl February 25, 2016 at 15:16

        Aha, so that’s the day to pick a fight *makes a note*

      • 204 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:31

        Makes sure you rip up that note later. Don’t want clutter about ,see.

      • 205 PorterGirl February 26, 2016 at 09:04

        Good point. Tidiness is so important.

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:25

        Mostly, that is.

      • 207 PorterGirl February 26, 2016 at 21:10

        Mostly, yes.
