Unknown said...

Nessa said...

Hurry, hurry, step right up
Be amazed
Be astounded
Be duped.

TLP said...

You said it all in your update.

"He who hesitates is lost," supposedly goes back to Cato. We've been rushing around a long time.

Tom & Icy said...

hurry up and wait

oh TLP, nowdays for me it is "He who hesitates pisses their pants."

karen said...

Hurry: find the fastest thing you can think of while still in the "H" section of the The Devil's Dictionary, completely disregarding the vowels e, i and o.

Jim said...

Hurry and wait,
the American (bureaucratic) way; or
"If you want it, here it is come and get it
mmmmmm make your mind up fast
If you want it, anytime, I can give it
But you better hurry 'cause it may not last
the Brit way

karen said...

O.K. Jim, I'll see your lyrics and raise:

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
Just get me to the airport put me on a plane

Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane

Doug The Una said...

Poobah, I'm never in too big a rush to raise a stoat.

What's the hurry, Karma? You're first even when second and third.

Nessa, what's five bucks get me?

TLP, it took a while, though, didn't it?

Icy, I think the back yard is calling.

Half, Karen?

Badfinger, Jim? How about a round of >To See That Desert Sun Go Down?

The Ramones, K? Nice touch.

Hurry up and wait was the first thing that came to my mind, but I see that some others thought the same thing.
I hate being in a hurry. It makes me nervous.

You're right they drink their liquor at a more leisurely pace abroad. Easily solved by mandatory 4 day weekends.

With all those new laws headed our way I'm sure they can squeeze this one in.

Jim said...

Hurry Doug! I am first for Wednesday and I don't even know what you will have to say.

I will say, "Doug, are you sleeping in?"

Doug The Una said...

A-bell, that penguin sure resembles Ambrose Bierce. And I've seen that expression somewhere else, although I can't quite place it.

I'm the same way, JD. Give me all day and I'll get around to it tomorrow.

You're probably right, Cooper. Or mandatory siestas maybe.

Jim, as sad as this is to say I was editing, then distracted, and I forgot to hit "publish."
