Monologue: late-nite method of obtaining political news by many citizens of the U.S.

Fred said...

And, apparantly, ddd is using that late-nite method.

Don't you guys ever go to bed?

Mon-o-log: n. Chronicles of the kissing disease.

Doug said...

True enough, Dddragon. I'm a Daily Show man myself.

Fred, I can't speak for Dddragon but it was pretty sleepless around here. I'm afraid to read today's post.

Sar, Day 1: Ew; Day 2: Yuck.

Your definition was too esoterically chemical for me, D. Since you've eliminated "titrating," which in our age sounds vaguely pornographic anyway, I though you were going to dispense with such metaphors. I'm the guy from chem. class who never could figure out the difference between molarity and molality. To me they were both calamity. I'm giving the nod to Bierce today. Was the foregoing a monologue or a diatribe?

Sar said...

Day 3: At least I'm not allergic to peanut butter.

karma said...

petgd: petting is good

Monolog the single tree that make or does not make by a sound in the forest when no one is there to hear it.

Monotone the sound discussed in said problem above.

Omnipotent Poobah said...

mon-o-logue (n) - The output of a very lazy lumberjack.

Ooo! That's bad.

lula said...

Good-by Doug

Doug said...

S, this isn't the first time I was licked by the dead but now isn't the time to discuss it and this isn't the place. Molality is a ratio based on the weight of the solvent and molarity the volume. Avocado's law and all that.

Good thing, too, Sar. I had a PB & J nine hours before I posted.

Funny, K.

Nice, Liz! My post today wasn't dull, it was just, um, empirical.

No, Poobah, that's good!

Lula, what time's your bus?

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Monologue,n., Method of communication used by one who has the power of speech, but not the capacity for conversation. Derived from delirium, and mediocrity. Also see bore.

mmepurk: make me puke

Doug said...

Hahahahahaha, Princess. *applause*

Funny, Miz Bohemia, scorpio bloggers almost need to be burnt with a soldering iron. Bottom's up.

TLP, you're channeling Bierce today. I wondered who he left me for.

AP3 said...

Once again, you are all too clever for me.

LeesahEm. said...

monologue-
1. generally the only funny part left on Saturday Night Live.
2. Often the best conversation a person will ever have.

Ariella said...

monologue~

A blog with with no commenters
aka
monoblogue

Doug said...

Never once, Aral, but since you're tired we'll let you go with a howdy.

Funny, Masil. Do you think a monologue is better than a soliloquy. I was always more of a soliloquy guy. Not that I know what one is, but I bet I like them.

I remember having one of those. I knew I had made it when dogs and dolls started to visit.

Miz BoheMia said...

No, no.... I am Pisces, they are scorpio... which makes me nuts and hubby nuttier for marrying me (my daughter had no choice in the matter)...

Pisces bloggers probably need a nice knock on the head every once in a while in order to be set straight... Ay!

Jamie Dawn said...

Monologue: A droning on by one who likes to hear himself speak. Most often, the audience is hoping he will suffer a mild stroke, not one with lasting damage to anything except the use of his tongue.

As for the late night comedians, I am a Conan O'Brien fan.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Monologue, monotony, monogamy, monopoly, monarchy, Monday. Some people don't like any of these.

Doug said...

It's not always about you, Miz Bohemia. Check my profile. Oh, and happy belated birthday to your husband and daughter.

Jamie Dawn, your sweetness being legendary I'll assume you didn't mean the author of Doug Drones On.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, TLP. I don't mind Monopoly so much myself.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

tlp said it best.

Daily show? Wow would not have guessed that I took you for more of a letter - man. :)


Monologue: An actor’s short path to vanity.

Doug said...

Nice definition, Alice! And nope, never a letterman.

Shirazi said...

Miz BoheMia said...

PS- Happy belated birthday to you too.

Doug said...

Shirazi, I wasn't discussing a timeline for marriage. Who are these people?

Pansi, I'm there every day. I just didn't want to interrupt you while you were eating.

Meow, Christopher.

Doomed is right, MB. Enjoy the ride. And thanks.

Minka said...

Now where is my comment? I demand it back right now! On second thought, it wasn´t all that good, maybe blogger picked it out and send it straight to the trash bin!

Doug said...

Yeah, right, lady. You've been ignoring me! I thought maybe you went on the cruise with Actonbell.

Minka said...

No, no I have been right here all the time..."no thanx I´d rather have a bloddy Mary, Actionbell and a dip into the ocean later"!

Doug said...

I knew it! Everyone's having fun without me.

Jamie Dawn said...

Of course, I was NOT referring to Mr. Pascover in my comments. Your droning is quite acceptable.

Doug said...

Aw, Jamie Dawn. I'm blushing.
