Foe

Foe, n. A person instigated by his wicked nature to deny one's merits or exhibit superior merits of his own.

2005 Update: To a fool a friend, to a politician a fiction and to the clever among us themself. The nearest companion.

Sar, your mission today is to find the natural foe of the French.

Doug said...

Karma, Pate is absolutely me.

pia said...

Changed your skin I think it's called.

you're pretty, you're pretty--asume you mean your dog

Doug said...

Yes, Pia, wove it by hand from recycled paper. That's not a dog, it's me, but thank you for the compliment.

Jamie Dawn said...

You've decided to lighten up your look. I approve.

Foes within the family are most dangerous.

Doug said...

Thanks, Jamie Dawn. And you're right. Should I remind Courtney?

Tan Lucy Pez said...

I think you did very well on this one. I'll buy it.

Now, I gotta tell you that you're pretty? Ooooookay. You're pretty.
Geez, some people. (When was the last time you told ME that I was pretty, huh?, huh?

Doug said...

Thanks, Tan Lucy. I'm glad for a little redemption after yesterday. I have told you look like a candy dispenser. I'll tell you now, a lovely one.

actonbell said...

I love your new look! And of course you're pretty. I just love your photo:)

Minka said...

Alright then...you are pretty! Like the new template. At first I thought I got the worng page.
And a foe in our lifes keeps us on our heels...it is a good thing.

Doug said...

Thanks, Lucinda, I made it myself. Pretty and talented!

Haha, Monika. You're right, too. One of my canned speeches to my staff is that I'm thankful to the people who try to trip me up because they keep me watching the road (and so, dear employee, you should be glad to work for jackass like me.)

With so many to choose from, I thought this one would do..."There is nothing lower than the human race except the French." - Mark Twain

(Note - I don't personally share this opinion)

I like the updated layout, BTW! Though I'm a little surprised that given your expansive vocabulary you would choose "pretty" as you self-descriptive complimentary adjective. Hmmm, is there something you're not telling us Doug-ina?

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

Pastels are my foe, Doug. Fight the good fight.

Doug said...

Sar, Twain wrote in an essay after the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre that the natural enemy of the Frenchman is the Frenchman. And you shouldn't be surprised. Irony's kind of my medium (and it's just for today.)

Sorry, Gabriel, I was getting complaints about the white-on-black. Can't afford to lose another job.

planetmoron said...

Excellent! All that squinting was loosening up my hair weave.

Sar said...

Ah well, had you said Frenchman...seriously though, I'm just glad I was in the ballpark with that challenge.

Curious what tomorrow's irony will bring.

weirsdo said...

Isn't the truth more of a foe to politicians than fictions?

You're pretty already!

Doug said...

Why didn't you say so Moron?

Sar, me too. Actually, I looked for the passage and couldn't find it. I was hoping you would tell me.

Weirsdo, I was thinking of politicians creating fictional foes to rally the people against.

Bybee said...

Your new look is a winner!

Tara Tainton said...

Definitely a nice new look. Though I was frightened for a bit when I popped over and thought for a moment that "you" were gone. :( But you're still here! ;)

Your post is spot on today...that's a truly enlightened definition of Foe. :)

Tom & Icy said...

We love your new layout! Very neat and easy on the eyes.

Doug said...

Bybee, thank you and welcome!

Tara, thanks doubly. I probably should have warned my firends/

Thanks, Tom and Icy. It's the product of a schizophrenic personification.

weirsdo said...

Oh right. I guess Indie and I know all about that fictional foe creation business

Comfort Addict said...

An opposite too smart and capable to dismiss.

Doug said...

Comfort Addict, I never saw you as a foe until right now.
