one word dogtown: planet

fallopian connivance
convivial dissipation
treasured jewelry in
the western storms
you will
why the pandering
(why the panda?)
while brisk
the busy-ness
of shangra-la wills
past the furnace
the desire
the inquisitive nature of
in pacific bliss.

I'm giggling. the references remind me of something I recently read (and then wished maybe I hadn't) I needed a giggle. I'm fighting with other people's computer issues and getting a headache! have to admit, biscuitry threw me. googled it and one of the top choices was lurid display of biscuitry. went from giggling to out loud laughter :)

You are a One Word savant! A veritable fire hose stream of consciousness pressing polar kin in unexpected combinations: "fallopian connivance... convivial dissipation... brisk biscuitry... inquisitive surfdom" (or is it serfdom?)"

Way cool. Like pacific bliss.

Dee: I missed "planet" while I was on the road; I read yours and knew I had to play. The word fallopian had been banging around in my head for a few days: this must be a melange of road food, goofiness, and Mr. Pynchon's (so far) stunningly pedestrian new novel. Pass the biskits, cher. And keep giggling.

Michael: Thank you, my brother. Surfdom, for sure: dogtown's the clue.

I enjoyed this one, Murat. It is quite fun with all your doggy combinations. Hollywood, it ain't. The pandering of course is for more biscuitry to strengthen one's inquisitive nose if one is to chase a panda. Love the surfdom, love the pacific bliss. I had a busy day today, and this was a great little shangri-la before I hit the books in earnest... (to much work to get my day's allotment of thesis reading done at work, oops)

Teresa: Woof. Glad you had some fun with this. The nerve of your workplace to intrude upon your higher calling.

Well, since the job intruding was the Faculty Association, and they were meeting to try to figure out how to handle classes with the budget cuts and furloughs, I figured it behooved me to do what I could to help. I wouldn't want the school to collapse before I get my degree. It would quite ruin my plans for my next career.

T: Yes, the smart thing was to behoove yourself.

Well, if one can't behave then it's best to behoove (especially if one was born in the year of the ox and has cloven hooves already).

Teresa: One of my favorite lines in the movie Cinderella Man runs something like this: Dad asks daughter if she is behaving herself and she replies that, yes, she was "being haved."
