Selfish

SELFISH, adj. Devoid of consideration for the selfishness of others.

2006 Update: Rising reliably to meet the expectations of others. Unable to see the forest for the me's.

Me first!
Selfish: Not having the courtesy to think of me.

Jenna Howard said...

Selfish: Me! It's All About ME!!!!!

It just really burns my biscuits that I'm not first. I should be first. Harrumph.

Sar said...

Greetings to all my blogger buddies! It's me your pal Sar of Belle of The Brawl! I thought I should take this spot to remind everyone to come visit me on Belle of The Brawl to participate in the caption contest since it's "Tell Me Tuesday" on Belle of The Brawl. We really do have a lot of fun on Belle of The Brawl, so be sure to come over and play with us on Belle of The Brawl.

Oh and hi Doug. I'll try to tear myself away from all the fun on Belle of The Brawl if I happen to think of a suitable contribution for selfish.

tee hee! :)

brian said...

I am still puzzling out how I am supposed to comment on these daily posts. So this may not be right.

Doug said...

Indie, thank heaven you're here. Now I'm glad I posted.

You're first, Jenna, just out of order.

Sar, you left out the links. There should be a lot of links.

Brian, that's grand. There are no rules or supposed tos. Make yourself at home and welcome.

Indeterminacy said...

There's a German saying that popped up some years ago - but I haven't heard it in English before:

Wenn jeder an sich denkt, ist an alle gedacht.

If everyone would think of themselves, we'd all be thought of.

(It really can't be translated)

Minka said...

Brian is here!!! And boy will he be able to contribute...he knows his words that one!

selfish? taking the bigger half, while pretending that you haven´t noticed :)

Lammy said...

That's why they call those things meme and not youyou

Doug said...

Genau, Indie. Ehrlich.

Not that you would, right, Minka? How about planting the toy you've always wanted on a kid and calling him obsessive?

Lammy, can anyone doubt they were named right?

O Ceallaigh said...

SELFISH, n. Cockles, and mussels, alive, alive O.

What? That's shellfish?!? Hey! What have you got against old Irish ballads? Crooned by glorious me, of course!

[One only hopes that what they're selling doesn't stink.]

O Ceallaigh said...

oh, and sar? You're a heel.

:)

Mo'a said...

Selfish....the name of our nation....as in US u slefish.

OK!!!!so going against your advice I shall plug on.....to selfish to be left out.

Jenna Howard said...

Make it so I am first. Well? I haven't got all day.

Doug said...

And then, O Ceallaigh, sometimes having a marine biologist on the site is less of a plus. Your taxonomy of Sar is compelling, though. The scoundreless left a funny comment and deleted it. Hrumph.

Mo'a, going against my advice may be selfish but taking it is foolish.

Jenna, here's an "I'm #1" iron-on

Sar said...

Doug - do you really think that I, the Belle of The Brawl, would be so selfish as to link to my brawling self?

O Ceallaigh - what are you saying, I've got no sole?!

Sar said...

Doug - Who me, delete my own comment? Why that'd be selfish indeed!

*whistling innocently*

Mistress Anna said...

What's mine is mine and what's yours is up for grabs - At least according to my toddler.

Kyahgirl said...

sel-fish aka salt cod, delish.

Hey Brian and Mo'a, when I first started coming here I just stood in awe of the brilliant and funny party-ers. I didn't know what to say either. Then, after receiving Doug's warm and friendly welcome a few times, I realized it doesn't matter...just participate. I think it's nice to see you here. I'm selfish, I like to see my friends all in the same place at the same time.

Ambrose might have been a bit of a crab, but you won't find any crabs here. Just an amoeba, a few dogs, a beautiful shoe, and lot of interesting people!

Minka said...

I agree Kyahgirl, the first time I stumbled here via blogexplosion I was in awe. I knew I´d found a great page, yet the people in the comment section were so intimidating that I just said hi, congratualted the owner of this page on a good blog and left. His warm welcome made me come back and after a while I commented here and there. Nothing major happened and after a while you knew almost everybody and my inhibitions were lowered. Now I comment a lot, however I want, sometimes good, sometimes I just say Hi...regardless, it is always fun! A bit like Central Perk in FRIENDS!

Doug said...

Sar, if you think for one minute that you're going to pump me for shoe pun out of this guy, you're flat wrong. Toe the line, missy.

Mistress Anna, yours is a more-gracious-than-average child.

MMmm, Kyah you remind me of lutefisk in church. *gurgle* Thanks for the kind endorsement, though.

And the world's never been the same, Minka. It was TLP, wasn't it. She's just scary.

Cowgirl said...

"When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone.” This is why drinking establishments do so well.

I just have to be selfish and point out that Brian was my friend first...LOL.

still life said...

selfish (adj)
when the world frames your self-portrait

Logophile said...

The emphasis is on the wrong quality but I thought of...

"To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost."
Gustave Flaubert

Here's to happiness!
Things don't bode well for many of you here though, sorry to say.

Minka said...

logo, according to that rule I feel like: "Santa, on prosac, in Disneyland, getting laid!" Or in other words, extremely happy!

Kyahgirl said...

Doug, you see, here is a perfect example. I didn't have a clue what you were talking about. Who knows every obscure fact there is? Doug, and his cohorts at WA. I had to go google lutefisk. now I'm bette educated and grossed out.

logo-if we go by Flaubert's definition, I guess we're doomed, no stupid people here. We just need to revert to plan b, Cowgirl's approach, and drink our sorrows away.

O Ceallaigh said...

I was too selfish to notice, in my first comment, that selfish is an adjective, not a noun. For your punishment, and especially for Lammy's:

SELFISHNESS, n. [so there!] Why three tenors can't sing harmony; they all want the same note at the same time. mi mi mi mi ...

ariel said...

but Still Life, the world IS my self-portrait.

selfish is not a question. the opposite is the question. :-P

Mo'a said...

Here I am again....thank you Doug...Kyahgirl and Minka...Ok!!the selfish memememe has Brian as my next on my taget....he writes poems :)
I am up on one obscure fact,the smelly lutefisk....to think they smell up their nation "Sweden" and "Minnesota", with lutefisk on the night before Xmas....Icelanders smell up their nation at the same time with Skata, they are ever so selfish and keep it in Iceland. BTW Skata is not a selfish.....it is a flatfish.

Mutha said...

Loved your definition Doug. But enough of this crap. Let's talk about ME.

Jenna Howard said...

Ooh an iron on. I'm going to put it on my shorts. Right on my tush. So as I'm walking away people will know I'm number 1. I'd put it on my shirt but it says "Gimme" so...

cooper said...

" the forest for the me's"

how can anyone possibly beat that doug?

Whinger said...

I just don't see how that definition applies. There is no mention of Paris Hilton in it.

Doug said...

Cowgirl, that's a fantastic quote. Not to fear I'm an artful borrower, not a thief.

Good one, Still Life, or gilding the self-portrait and leaving the frame rough?

Logo, that would explain my grin. Another great quote.

Hahaha, Minka. So Santa knows about Reykjevik? Makes sense.

Kyahgirl, I've just been to Lutheran Christmas Eve services a lot. The neighbors will complain.

Stick to biology, O Ceallaigh.

Excellent, Ariel.

Haha, thanks Mo'a. Careful, though. If you educate me too much I may lose the grin and start thinking about social justice.

Mutha, I just hope that your children thank God daily that they have you for a mom while they do their chores and dig salt for your supper.

Jenna, they can probably figure out how you rank without the patch, right?

Thank you, Alice. No, really, you're too kind.

Whinger, it's all about her.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Selfish,adj.,: describing the tendency to get oneself NOTICED and noticed favorably. Not that I would know.

You all seem to be more interested in yourselves than in me. That is so selfish! One of my chief regrets is that more people don't know about ME. It would be selfish of me to not brag. After all, you need to pay attention to ME.

I am so too not scary, dawg.

BTW, good definition Doug. See, how selfless I can be? I am so not selfish. I am so giving. Did you notice that? It's pretty amazing, isn't it? I mean, considering how special I am.

Jenna Howard said...

You can't take my back my badge Doug. It is MINE!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

And another thing, I don't take up more than me fair share of attention and space here. So I am not selfish, but if you are trying to post here and taking up MY space, then you are selfish. See how it works?

The Village Idiot said...

I had a whole post about bivalves and everything prepared but that marine scientist person stole it, ...HOW SELFISH

Tan Lucy Pez said...

I think I might have more advice to give you on this. I'll get back to you.

ariel said...

TLP, you're hilarious. I wouldn't like to look selfish but I kind of start expecting to laugh my ass off when your avatar appears.

Doug said...

TLP, you are so too scary. In a sweet and smart and snarky kinda way. And thank you, your highness.

No, no, Jenna, you keep it. I'm just saying you're number 1 anyway. Honest. (Like I want it back now. Sheesh.)

Sorry, TLP. Can I use this space? I mean, until you need it?

Village Idiot, the best laid plans of Mice and Mollusks.

TLP, I can't wait. Generous. You're generous.

It's true, Ariel. When my email shows a TLP comment I start chuckling before I read it.

LeesahEm. said...

I would give a definition but that would mean I would have to share my time and brilliance and that wouldn't be very selfish of me...

still life said...

aaahhh my dear ariel

but i fear that your world is mere landscaping in my universe...


DADDY, I WANT AN OOMPA LOOMPA!

ginah said...

Oh, Veruca - did you say "shellfish"? What is it with you Doug and all these non-Kosher references? Did I mention that besides being Irish by genes, that I am also Jewish and therefore, was remiss in mentioning the Jewish cousin of the Winge - The Kvetch - talk to Pia.

still life said...

Doug yes, gilding is better as I am also narcissistic and know that I look good in gold.

brian said...

I am being extremely selfish because Cowgirl, Kyahgirl and Minka are fighting over me. I know I shouldn't, but my selfish heart is very pleased.

dddragon said...

Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me Me me ME me . . .

NOT YOU

Minka said...

3D, how long did it take you to type this:)

And yes Doug, Santa is a regular in Reykjavik. He enjoys the loose atmosphere, the hot tubs and our brennivin. Why do you think his nose is that red?!

Cowgirl said...

So would we be drinking our selfishness away, or our sorrows?

Cowgirl said...

Minka, LMAO!

Kyahgirl said...

let's all go to Reykjavik... its the best selfish thing to do.

Jenna Howard said...

Are there cute guys there? If so they're all mine. MINE!!! And I don't share.

Cowgirl said...

The best selfish thing to do? I'm there. Even if Jenna won't share the cute guys.

Miz BoheMia said...

Hmph... the party has been in full swing without ME?????

Talk about being F-^*&*%-ing SELFISH!!!!

HMPH....

Tan Lucy Pez said...

So, since I haven't been posting on my blog lately, I'll just use this blog. Hi Still Life! I like your comments. Thanks Ariel! You're sweet. Nice Sar. Clever. Fun, 3D. I wonder where AP3 and Acton Bell are?

Indie, Jenna, nice to see you! Cowgirl, I'll take the extra cuties. Kyahgirl, hey there. Minka,Masil, Brian, hi there.

Idiot, funny as usual. Whinger, whinge on. O, may I call you "O"?, witty. Mutha and Cooper, nice to see you here. Miz B! Cute. So nice of you all to come see about me.

SO. Here's MY post:
I ran errands today. Took the husband along so that I could park close to the stores and let him sit in the car. That way if I'm illegally parked, he can move the car if someone complains. Not my problem.

If you want to contact me or comment on my day, just leave a note here.

Doug: If I get mail here, just compile the most interesting stuff and give me an Executive Summary. I'll expect that in my in-box by 8 PM, TLP time.

Kyahgirl said...

TLP-you're a riot :-) Poor Doug, I wonder if he foresaw his new career as your administrative assistant!

Jenna and Cowgirl-you can wrastle with Minka for the cute guys, I'm just going for the party...and to administer ice-packs to brawling, selfish girls.

O Ceallaigh said...

Kyah, if you can stand the thought of sharing those ice packs, I'll be glad to help.

Brian, stop bogarting the girls!!

[If only I were cute ...]

SquareGirl said...

Doug, I sure hope Kobe Bryant gave you permission to use this word.

ariel said...

Still Life, what more can I strive for? I am framed, therefore I am.

Cowgirl said...

Uh oh, we're brawling over cute guys? How selfish.

I've got dibs on Kyahgirl for an ice pack nurse! She's mine!

Hey O'Ceallaigh, you are one cute amoeba.

Kyahgirl said...

o'ceallaigh-of course, what better job for the nerds than administering the ice packs? You just want to get your hands on Jenna, don't you? naughty.

cowgirl, of course I'll be your own personal ice pack nurse, I've spent my whole life preparing for this moment. Do you think Minka will let us all stay with her? We'll have to wait til tomorrow to find out.

O Ceallaigh said...

kyah! sssh! Sharks are supposed to sneak up to their targets silently. Until they touch the puck ...

Cowgirl, careful... you'll make me go all squishy.

actonbell said...

63 comments! Wow, do we have a lot of experience with THIS word.

If I like it, it's mine.

If it looks just like mine then it IS mine.
If I think it's mine, then it is mine.

Minka said...

It´s a date. I already booked the ice-bar. The entire bar is out of ice and snow and believe you me the drinks glow. I am not sure about the Icelandic guys though. The girls are amazing: Any of us on the verge of becoming a lesbian, Icelandic girls will push us over the edge!
Oh, and there is a new batch of exchanae students arriving next week...Italians, Spanish and Portugese. Rest assured ladies, they will heat us up!
After the oarty we will take a dip in one of teh many hot pots here ander a starlit sky...

Doug said...

*draws deep breath*

Thank you, Masil for letting us believe for one more day.

Still Life, yay! I can't believe we got 40-some-odd comments before someone thought of Veruca Salt. You get candy.

Gina, what do you get when you cross a Jew with an Irishwoman? Anybody? Oh, and I'm being Haram today not unkosher. This is an interfaith site.

Still Life, that's what I thought when you posted your picture. Drape the girl in gold.

Brian, I would be too. You're excused.

Dddragon, The funniest part about your comment is I bet you were making rock candy for a fundraiser with your other hand.

Minka, that explains why he's such a jolly old elf. Put a big piƱa colada for the two of you on my tab.

Cowgirl, I'm pretty sure you can't drink away selfishness. Sorrows, any old time.

Kyahgirl, sounds like they could use a good chemist.

Come on Jenna, how many do you need at once? 6 or 7 tops, I reckon.

Generous, Cowgirl. You're off topic, though.

Haha, Miz. B. Espero solamente a ti, hermana adorada.

TLP, I'll take care of it, madame. Did you want me to research a radio question?

Kyahgirl, you're a saint. Administrative Assistant is a major promotion from Executive Director. No complaints here. If the girls keep carrying on, though, I may need an icepack.

O Ceallaigh, I hear you. I feel like the guy with the car who ends up chauffering his friends and their dates. I used to be cute.

Squaregirl, High Five!

Holy cow, Ariel! It's sad that Kafka died without ever coining that line.

Bless you, Cowgirl. Ain't you a lady?

Kyahgirl, I'm staying with Santa.

O Ceallaigh, if they touch the puck. Quack quack. Hate to see an Amoeba go squishy.

Actonbell, this did seem to be a winning word in this crowd. I think I know who wrote that.

Minka, you are so posting those pictures. And generous of you to offer.

Mo'a said...

Doug, I think your blog has been hijacked again.....TLP and Santa are suspects...check the Blue Lagoon....ooooooops!!! we are on selfish, I rest my case.

actonbell said...

Wait a minute, Doug--you don't do laundry? So, you make someone else do your laundry? Um...

(referring to your Ransom comment. I was wondering about that.

Rio said...

growing up an only child its the only characteristic i feel im completely entitled to

Doug said...

Yeah, Mo'a. I just raise the flag and see who salutes. Most everyone it seems.

Actonbell, it was a negotiating tactic. You were holding Snuggles the softener bear.

It's all yours, Rio.

AP3 said...

Earworm:

"All through the day
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine...."

Thanks, George and Beatles!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Okay. Unselfish as always, I accept the offer (I'm sure it was made...) to chaperone you girls on the Iceland trip. I'm afraid however, that you will have to work your plans around ME. I've got stuff to do ya know.

karma said...

ooof! you people have been having a party here without ME? selfish, selfish, selfish!

look, here i am! hellooooo! commentor #73. yooohhooooo! i'm the one with my tongue hanging out

sfelif: almost an anagram of selfish

mireille said...

Selfish. Nice with lemon and drawn butter. Or maybe steamed in a wine-y broth. Not kosher and often thought to be the carrion-of-the-water but I don't care, I like it anyway. Especially Maine ones, with corn on the cob and new red potatoes. xoxoxo

Kyahgirl said...

No karma, we've been waiting for you,. Are you coming to Iceland with us? I believe Minka wanted to share some philosophy with you about all cats being black in the dark or something along those lines.

mireille said...

oh hell, O Cealleigh already did this. With 70 comments, it gets hard to be original. xoxo

Kyahgirl said...

ooh sorry M, I didn't see you there, you slipped in as I was talking to karma. can you get away with us? i'm sure they have selfish there you can eat, with lemon and butter. xoxo

Kyahgirl said...

you ARE an original! didn't you know?

mireille said...

heh. You know it, baby. Hey, does Doug ever stop by here? xoxo

Kyahgirl said...

nah. while the cat's away, the mice will play :-)

(just kidding doug)

karma said...

oh thank goodness, k-girl! Minka invited me to Iceland a while ago, she said she was going to hold my hand and take me for a dip in those icy waters brrrrrrr

xuxbsm: triple D cup size

Doug said...

Thanks, Aral. I don't know that one but it sounds on topic.

TLP, they need a chaperone. I'll help with your ticket.

Karma, you know perfectly well a party can't start until someone prays to Ganesh and you're the only one here knows sanskrit. OK, cue the music.

Mireille, better than shellfish they have rotten shark meat. I read about it on Minka's blog. And, M? It's kosher. By the way, scroll up and find Ginah's comments.

Kyahgirl, I was on a plane. Thanks for hosting in my absence.

Karma, that's the kind of verifier I'm talking about.

Kyahgirl said...

anytime buddy. do you fly around a lot? you sure stay well connected! *impressed*

Doug said...

Kyahgirl, I mostly travel inside California. Some travel days I'm offline all day but some, like today I can log in a few times. You all are too much fun to ignore.

Kyahgirl said...

thanks for the insights into your life. You're a telecommuter, 'putercommuter, and commutercommuter.

Yes, I find the crowd here hard to ignore too. I think I might of broke Minka's record today :-)
Have a good evening.

Indeterminacy said...

People have been quite generous with their comments here.

ariel said...

silly Indie. we are here for attention. the bigger the cake, the bigger your piece.

weirsdo said...

Selfish!!!!! Like my sister DAISY when she woudent let Presidant Bush share his weener with ME!!!!!!!!!

ariel said...

on the other hand, in an empty room you can have the whole cake yourself.

Cairo The Boxer said...

I can honestly say I am not selfish! Everything I do is for my parents. After all I am man's best friend.

Sar said...

Oh my freggin lord there's a lot of comments here. Wow.

ogvsmafn - oh give the man a f'in nap for responding to all these comments!

karma said...

did someone say cake? knock knock, Ariel

Doug said...

Thanks, Kyahgirl. Don't forget a looter suitor.

Kind of ironic, right, Indie?

Ariel, we saved you an extra piece in case you were really hungry.

PANSI!!!!!! So good to see you back!!!! that Daisy!!!!

And, Ariel, in an oven you can have it hot.

Gracious, Cairo. Can your parents even read?

Thanks, Sar. I may take a fin nap as soon as I look it up.

Karma, Ice Cream with yours?

ginah said...

That's what I like about you Doug! The answer to your riddle: my two kids - and let me tell you, look out! Since I don't have a blog of my own - yet, I'll share that growing up the 7th of 10 children, selfish is a luxury which I have always enjoyed!

Doug said...

Yes, but Gina, do they buy whiskey wholesale or sell it dear? I think we'd all like to hear more about you so until you decide to start your blog, feel free to use this space.

Cowgirl said...

I wanted to be selfish and have the 95th comment.

Kyahgirl said...

but you were out did by the sheepdog pest with 96.
shall we go to 100 my dear?

we're masters of 'raising the bar' here!

Kyahgirl said...

I'm saying this in the purely selfish way of someone who is unconcerned that this is Doug's blog, not ours. I just prefer tidy numbers.

Cowgirl said...

Ok, I see your concern kyahgirl. Although are we selfish for trying to raise the bar at Doug's blog, fellow master?

Tidyness is not selfishness.

Doug said...

Cowgirl, it's all yours. Do enjoy it.

Kyahgirl, I feel just fine about this blog being ours. I think I write about 1% of it.

You're correct, Cowgirl. Very Shaker of you and so, be my guest. I won't answer the next comment if it says "100"

ginah said...

Just wanted to be the 100th - now how's that for selfish?!

ginah said...

Could not answer your question earlier, otherwise, I would not have been the 100th. I believe they're still arguing over that one, but probably drink it then complain about it. Really, do I get some sort of award for that random 100th thing? I'm preparing my speech...

Cowgirl said...

Funny thing Doug, is that there is some Shaker in here somewhere down the line.

Anyways, I'm not a very selfish person. Usually. But I can get agitated easily when provoked.

Doug said...

Ginah, you are the first ever 100th commenter on Waking Ambrose. I'll bring the bouquet after your speech.

Cowgirl, I'm pretty sure there's no faithful Shaker in there somewhere. A shaker with descendants would explain a lot, wouldn't it?

ginah said...

They were the best of times,
They were the worst of times...

Okey, something original, I am truly honored to have a distinction on such a distinct blog. Anything, but carnations.

Cowgirl seems like one tough chick - don't want to get on her bad side <..>

Kyahgirl said...

Ginah!! Congratulations. We did it. what a team.

Now, that is a sign from the universe that you must get busy and start your own blog.

Cowgirl said...

Ginah, I am tough, but very nice. I would say my bark is bigger than my bite, but I don't bark. ;) Glad to make your acquaintance. I'm not much for carnations, either.

Kyahgirl, was I supposed to wait for a sign from the universe to start a blog? Oh how selfish of me to jump the gun. :)

Doug, so true. Celibacy makes for difficult procreation. ;)

ginah said...

Sometimes you just can't see the forest for the keys...

Thank you ladies for your kind welcomes - have visited both your places but haven't had time to stop to chat. Will just have to make time. Have suspected that about you Cowgirl.

The signs just keep popping up Khaygirl.

ginah said...

Sorry - Kyahgirl!

Doug said...

Ginah, she's a sweetheart unless you try to date her. The you'd better have your good boots on, I think. Carnations, Gina, orchids for such an august dignitary.

Amen, Kyahgirl.

Not to worry, Cowgirl. I'm sure I have some celibates in my line too.

Ginah, as the prophet Isaiah said "Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and wonders."

ginah said...

I am sensing one may want to wear spurs - <..>.
Kyahgirl is reminding me of one of my dear sisters.

and Doug - Wow! just wow! and I mean that as a true compliment. By the way, the orchids look great on my windowsill.

Minka said...

I am gonna have the last word in this comment section!

Kyahgirl said...

nice try minka :-)

ariel said...

yes, dear, send the Europeans to go to sleep, and the Americans to go and wash their hands before lunch. :-)

still life said...

WOW...you guys are still going on? The epitome of definition, the lot of you, trying to redirect the spotlight from The Guest of the Week!

ariel said...

I don't like not round numbers.

Kyahgirl said...

me too ariel, its my own version of OCD

ginah said...

Or numbers divisible by 3 - but that's the next comment! Even the OCD'ers stare at her a little strangely...

Kyahgirl said...

gal darn it ginah, we were at a nice even 116, oh well, now we're at 118.

Doug said...

Ginah, you're welcome.

Minka, I guess you'll have to come back for that.

Kyahgirl, that was just mean.

Ariel, you should know Americans don't wash our hands before we eat. That's why all our food comes wrapped in paper.

Still Life, for real. Selfish and Saga both work here.

Or finite ones, apparently, Ariel and Kyah girl.

Ginah, I had you at 117 which is divisible by 3. Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Kyahgirl said...

ok, but 120 is divisible by 2, quite tidy, isn't it?

Doug said...

What was the topic again?

Kyahgirl said...

crap, that was supposed to be divisible by 3 but I messed up and now we're past 120. I'm not playing this game anymore.Can't believe it, hoist by own petard.
*pouts*

Minka said...

Does that mean I win?

Sometimes it pays to just lurk for a while and when everybody gives up, take their spot!

ginah said...

Kyah don't be so hard on yourself, it's also divisible by 2 dear.

Doug the topic was "selfish".

Minka, sure you won - I only hope you're sleeping quite soundly now. I for won, oops one am watching Wallace & Gromit's "A Grand Day Out" with my 4 year old son.

Okey, good night for now.

Now 124 - that adds up to my magical 7!

Minka said...

I don´t think so!:)

Logophile said...

But 25 is prime

Logophile said...

dang it,
oh well,
127 works too

ginah said...

I don't know what number I am but I know I am going to bed. Goodnight Irene.

Doug said...

Lordy y'all. 25 is prime?

Logophile said...

:-D
Its the new math Doug,
and it was a momentary laspse, by the time I came back to correct it, we were at 127, which actually was.

So I am not cute, I can't spell
AND my math skills are shaky, I have a really great dog...

Logo, I've seen your picture. You are cute, you can spell, you just aren't borderline autistic. That's where I come in.

Are you people friggin´ kidding me? 132!

no minka, this is no joke. This is serious, devoted commenting.

Doug, Logo really is cute isn't she? She's my long lost twin sister, did you know? I found her in the blogosphere, after she was born then lost in some kind of flaw in the space time continuum.

Holy Crackers, people! Such a selfish comment saga. It appears Doug's blog is being held ransom. I will use my best weapon to save it...flirting!

I've got my favorite boots and spurs within my reach...just thought I would point that out.

Ha! I got the last word!

Doug said...

Minka, it's like a tumor.

Kyahgirl, I've seen your picture. Pretty lovely your own self.

Cowgirl, you have correctly identified the problem, kindly offered to help and offered about the worst solution I can think of. 2 out of 3? We'll see.

So you thought Indie, although I'm answering no more comments on this page.

Thanks Doug, you made my day!

Cowgirl-you are Trouble, with a capital T, but I like that :-)

Minka said...

I can´t believe I am doing this! :)
