Monologue, n. The activity of a tongue that has no ears.
2005 Update: An atom of political discourse which forms a salt in outrage.
Monologue: late-nite method of obtaining political news by many citizens of the U.S.
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.
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?
Day 3: At least I'm not allergic to peanut butter.
sometimes when i talk, i'm the only listener. that makes me monogamous
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.
mon-o-logue (n) - The output of a very lazy lumberjack.
Ooo! That's bad.
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.
Nice, Liz! My post today wasn't dull, it was just, um, empirical.
No, Poobah, that's good!
Lula, what time's your bus?
Monologue: Still illegal in thirteen states; marriage not withstanding.
Monologue- Scorpio husband's and scorpio daughter's preferred methods of expression...
Monologue- Reason to turn to drinking as escape from scorpio hubby's and scorpio daughter's preferred method of conversation...
Monologue- Dangerous device devised to turn peaceful bohemians into frustrated alcoholics...
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
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.
Once again, you are all too clever for me.
1. generally the only funny part left on Saturday Night Live.
2. Often the best conversation a person will ever have.
A blog with with no commenters
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.
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!
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.
Monologue, monotony, monogamy, monopoly, monarchy, Monday. Some people don't like any of these.
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.
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.
Nice definition, Alice! And nope, never a letterman.
Monologue? And people are discussing having timeline for marriage.

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.
Doomed is right, MB. Enjoy the ride. And thanks.
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!
Yeah, right, lady. You've been ignoring me! I thought maybe you went on the cruise with Actonbell.
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"!
I knew it! Everyone's having fun without me.
Of course, I was NOT referring to Mr. Pascover in my comments. Your droning is quite acceptable.
Aw, Jamie Dawn. I'm blushing.
