Glutton - a girl wanting all of you, Doug!

pia said...

Lula took my definition and made it so non-gluttonese that it flew through my mind

Tom & Icy said...

Should I bite Lula for you Doug?

Doug said...

Yes, Lula, that would be an impressive appetite.

Pia, don't encourage her!

It's OK, Icy. Oral hygiene is important.

Tom & Icy said...

Brushing our teeth is important, right TLP?

Fred said...

I had a heck of a farm subsidy program going on at the house yesterday. I thank whomever funded it because I ate 'til I was truly stuffed. In another few hours, I'm ready to do it all over again for lunch. Yum!

Doug said...

Icy! Bad dog!!! Don't forget flossing!

Yes, Ariel, but a good kind of terror.

Brother Fred, I hear you. I used to work near a turkey farm outside West Liberty, Iowa. I bet after yesterday there's a new pick-up parked in front of the Downtowner meat n' three.

*tapping foot* i'm all girl Doug. and i'll have all of you. but i'd spit out the teeth

Glutton: My bottomless dog at Thanksgiving in the kitchen eating everything that "falls" onto the floor.

Sar said...

Bunch of cannibals here today! Reminds me of the notoriously cannibalistic glutton Hannibal Lecter's famous line, "I'm having an old friend for dinner".

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Whoa! Whole lotta overeatin' goin' on here today.

Lula: Bad girl. Icy: Good girl. Lula, take a lesson. Tom: yes, brush those teeth!

Glutton,n.,masochist.

Well, once again I see it's all been said. Pass the Prilosec, please. xoxo

Omnipotent Poobah said...

glutton (n) - See me. Chomp...chomp...drool...smack...urp!

Doug said...

Haha, Karma, do you mind keeping them in a jar for my mama?

Macnhego, you should see my kitchen right now. Two dishes in the dishwasher, one in the sink and about a dozen on the floor. The latter are the clean ones.

I'm telling you, Sar. The selection's easy when you're on the menu.

Great definition, TLP and thanks for doing your matriarchal scolding this morning.

Just one, Mireille.

Poobah, how does the wishbone work when you're first person plural?

dddragon said...

Glutton: what I definitely was yesterday as I kept having ONE MORE bite of turkey and stuffing, knowing that the pies would soon be making their appearence ...

And I'm waiting for the leftovers to warm up, even as I type. YUM

I wouldn't EAT you up, Doug. Surely there are ... uh, nevermind.

Ariella said...

One who engages in one of the deadly sins, gluttony. Best when immediately followed with sloth.
Hope you all practiced well, only a month till we do it again!

actonbell said...

ariella, you're right about that!
Mastication: everyone does it, so don't be ashamed. Gluttonous habits only take over a few times a year. We'll all be more moderate tomorrow, honest!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! And a happy Black Friday to y'all, too:)

Doug said...

Dddragon, et tu? I laughed at my gluttony yesterday. My niece was trying to start up a game of Duck, Duck, Goose and I was telling my brother that I wished she'd wait because I was stuffed! and then put another forkfull of greenbean casserole in my greasy maw.

Thanks, Ariella. I think I kept away from envy yesterday but it was a near thing.

Actonbell, who's "we?" You got a mouse in your pocket? Happy day.

Doug said...

Oh, Sar! I didn't mean to leave you out. Can you tell me what a fava bean is?

LeesahEm. said...

glutton-eyeing the dessert table while piling on the second helpings. Usually not a wise idea when you still have hours left of work and you're already tired.

actonbell said...

Oops, I'm a profound pronoun reprobate--and my pants aren't loose enough to house a mouse. But that's an idea...

karma said...

Sar, pass the salt, please

banmg: nuke my goose

Doug said...

I'm not sure, Masil. Napping makes the time fly pretty fast.

Actonbell, only you can make being a reprobate sound so refined and worth aspiring to.

Karma, I'm sure Sar will be happy to share.

Daisy!!!!!

Or me!!!! I am a glutton for punishmant!!!!!! Cuz I am going to forgive you ONE LAST TIME, Mr. Dog!!!!!!!! But you shouldent let that tramp lulu throw her self at you like that!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug said...

Daisy??? What did I say to Daisy? Don't worry about Lula. Let's just say she might be a little, well, accident prone.

weirsdo said...

Mr. Dog!!!! Are you a freind of Mr. Banana???? I dint no!!!
What I ment about Daisy is, she's a GLUTTON!!!!! You can see how FAT she is!!!!!

ariel said...

pansi, thank you for the laughter, it almost blew my head off! (Daisy is fat but isn't she pretty? sweet little cow.)

Doug said...

Oh, Pansi, I see. She should stop! Gluttony is a Sin! Doesn't she want to see Dusty in heaven?!?!?!?!

Ariel, please don't laugh at Pansi. She's sensitive and I'm very protective of her!!!

Jamie Dawn said...

Glutton: Me, myself, and I.

We are still at my in-laws. The eating continues, but not quite as rabidly. We leave here on Sunday, and hopefully we will be able to button our jeans.

Doug said...

Make that we, Jamie Dawn.

ariel said...

I wasn't laughing at Pansi! I was laughing WITH Pansi! well, someone was laughing, that's for sure... can we talk it over at a coco-pie, Doug?

Omnipotent Poobah said...

Doug,

We usually just swallow the entire turkey whole, which gets you past that troublesome wishbone. But the best thing is that since we are omnipotent, we can Heimlich ourselves is need be.

Nony Mitchell said...

Doug,

I have to admit that I am not quite sure what that means...so now I will think about it and think about it...hmmmmm....

well we have got to have something to think about.

Doug said...

Of course, Ariel. I'll bring the coffee.

Must be nice, Poobah. Wish I had your metabolism.

Hi, Spirit Dancer! Yes, or you can fake it like I do.

Daisy said...

I am NOT a COW!!!!!! I do not want to see DIRTY ever again!!!!! And gluttony doesn't count if you purge!!!!!
But at least I don't have to worry about seeing Pansi!!! You should just forget about your so-called "date," Mr. Dog!!! Pansi will be able to have a "hot" time with Dirty, maybe!!!!!

Doug said...

Good grief, Daisy. You plastic dolls are almost as difficult as regular women.
