When it comes to domestic appliances, I like playing with our oven, its a gas!

Many people think that Edgar Allan Poe was a raven madman.



personal/true aside: I grew up in the same house where Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Raven". That should answer any of your lingering questions about me - demo :)

Which question(s)?

Are you a raven?

Are you a mad man?

A Mad Man:

1) I was in advertising



2) I hate the fact that my NSF posts disappear on first try when I use the "Quote" function!

There was a young lady on a bender,
Who sat down to play on her Fender.
The strings turned to keys,
Of ebony and ivories.
And when she stood up,
She'd changed her bloody gender.

Or is someone not familiar with Mad Men TV series? :)

If you break a string on your guitar don't Fret.

Perhaps you can amplify on that statement?

I would, but it's not terribly polite to give unsolicited feedback.

Thank you fans, thank you.

Unaccustomed as I am to making speeches....... booo hisssss, get off

You're only jealous, 'cause you didn't get in before me. That'll teach you to be more punctual.

Give me a comma.
Give me a semicolon
Give me a full stop (period)
Give me an exclamation mark
Give me an apsotrophe.

Oooo, I do like a nice bit of punctuation.

Just like an old boxer, it can make you punchy.

The boxer may be old, Don, but his girlfriend is a knockout.

That reminds me of the soup that was so bad it was gruel and unusual punishment.
