    see! this is new to me! it feels so fresh, like a big bottle of downy april fresh being poured over your head in the aisle of cub foods. (sigh) we no longer have cub foods here.

    omg! That makeover is fab, Joce. I mean caterpillar brows are all the rage in Milan.

    You managed to tell us so much while telling us close to nothing at all about your travels. Bit of a tease but I love it.

    Oh my god, my sides ache from laughing so heartily. You’re a regular head case. Love the character sketches.

    He’s doubtless dead by now – liver failure, I’ll warrant.

    Ha! You underestimate. I read it before.

    But this way I can save time and actually get more work done.

    I dunno if that’s a good thing or not.

    oh jocelyn, you really ARE my psychic sister. i have a tale about cracking a joke in the oakland airport when i was quite relaxed after two weeks in maui. twas a joke that led to the special inspection of all my bags and myself. i was far too relaxed apparently. the saving grace that it occurred a year prior to 9/11 or i’d likely be sitting in guantanamo today. and then there were the times i told of both the ameircan amabssador to trinidad & tobago and then told the nation’s first lady what i thought of her husband’s request that we lobby the squatters we worked with on his behalf.

    i can’t quite decide if this means you and i should travel together sometime or if it means we should never come within a time zone of each other.

    not to contradict lime, but i think you are my psychotic sister.

    Happy St Patrick’s day to you!

    I was already laughing so hard at the picture that it took me ages to be able to focus on the actual tale. You should go back, look up that Lord chappie, stay in his manor, and then dump the syrup on his head. After all, why screw up your chances of visiting a real Lord’s manor?

    how did you manage to get them to transplant Janet Reno’s eyes, brows and ears onto your good self, when the woman is still alive?!

    Hamilton sounds like a winner in the ‘upperclass twit of the year’ sketch in Monty Python…

    Éireann go Brách!!!

    This story was like stockpiled Quaker Oats for my soul.

    I don’t even know what that means.

    Happy St Patty’s~

    If I had a nickel for every time I found myself pantless, cursing at pony and declaring “never again”, well, lets just say things would be a lot different around here.

  16. amymalia says:

    Actually make that a dollar.

    (and your blog just deleted my comment I think it wants to break up with me but I’m still gonna stalk it like we all know paul stalks heather)

  17. Say It says:

    Love the parade look. It is a parade look, right?

    Your early story is as great as your current stories, thanks for rerunning it. And that old lord is a tof!

    btw, whats a tof?

    I don’t know darling, but I’m exhausted and I’m not even quite sure I GOT it all. Cub Foods bad? or good? 😉

  19. Diana says:

    I love your tales, even if they are recycled, they are still all that.

    The scary Jocelyn leprechaun, however, still gives me nightmares. Thanks for that, you evil woman.

    Oh, and if we do run into each other in the personal hygeine aisle of Cub’s, I will avert my eyes from your basket but will look you in the eyes, see if I do.
