"Self-love for ever creeps out, like a snake, to sting anything which happens to stumble upon it. "
Lord Byron

kat on 2009-11-17 21:08:33
Stinging snakes?

kat on 2009-12-20 16:34:01
Again I say, stinging snakes?

bansaisequoia on 2010-01-10 01:32:37
I can't believe he said it either. Leapin' lizards!

kat on 2010-03-29 16:03:34
Ah those stinging snakes and leaping lizards....

fishbum on 2012-03-31 21:59:39
I got bite by a snake once and it stung like hell.

Lurker on 2012-07-10 23:27:05
How small are the snakes in England? For that matter, how big are the bees?

JenDiaz72 on 2015-07-10 12:15:51
Aw... I've been bitten by them a few times during feeding days (my fault though... I didn't wash my hands well enough after I handled the mouse). They are just small corn snakes and the bite is like a needle pricking you... It's the sudden strike that scares the hell out of you...

montyb on 2016-01-24 12:20:49
I hate it when snakes go on strike.

LLapp on 2016-06-03 20:32:03
Jen, in response to your comment: EEEEK!!

pegxpeg on 2016-06-21 12:56:21
Self-love sounds like narcissism, but it smells like team spirit.

"Never fall out with your bread and butter."
English Proverb

wvwoman on 2014-01-25 23:40:09
or...never call out with your great ant gutter.

msswitch on 2014-07-22 10:50:43
come to think of it, I believe it's time to call out my great ant gutter

bansaisequoia on 2014-10-08 12:59:18
I was at attention in the mess hall, when the sergeant dismissed us. I had to fall out with my bread and butter.

JenDiaz72 on 2014-10-16 09:06:08
Well... they say "kill them with kindness"...

Body Building
 
"Every man is the builder of a temple called his body. "
Henry David Thoreau

LLapp on 2015-08-11 16:26:44
Finally, a quote from Thoreau's body-building phase. I hear he was hot!

montyb on 2016-03-04 15:05:01
I fear my nave is expanding.

I found a little piece of it behind my couch the other day.

"Meditation is not for him who eats too much, nor for him who eats not at all; not for him who is too much addicted to sleep, nor for him who is always awake." Bhagavad Gita

dovid1946 on 2015-06-05 05:30:19
sounds like meditation for Goldilocks

i had "reheating a pie"...


crossland68 on 2013-06-11 00:03:43
Reheating a pie is more reliable than repeating a lie. Tastier, too!


montyb on 2013-06-20 16:23:29
Mmmmmm.....pie.


wvwoman on 2014-05-31 09:27:43
got it right this time, but speaking of pie...


JD_1947 on 2014-12-15 02:09:49
. . alamode for me . . .

debzhaus on 2015-12-02 15:59:53
Reheating a pie doesn't make that pie true either.

"It's very dangerous if we start accepting lower and lower forms of behavior as the normal."
Sean Hannity

dmford60 on 2014-02-14 15:13:22
Yep, 'cause those lower forms of life reproduce...and vote.

cindidido on 2014-04-06 08:37:22
So we cancel your show? Okay. ;)

montyb on 2015-05-30 03:33:38
Lower and lower forms of behavior sounds like the current political talk show business.

montyb on 2016-04-04 04:41:51
I wonder which lower form of behavior Hannity will endorse this year for President.

abra on 2016-04-23 14:35:31
So, you all think it's a good thing to accept worse and worse behavior, to keep lowering the standard for what is acceptable? I have problems with Sean Hannity, but I'd say he's right on here.

larry149 on 2016-07-01 03:49:15
I agree with abra.

montyb on 2013-12-19 15:15:16
Right Fontaine, ya long-haired hippie freak.

chopstix on 2014-02-25 07:02:11
The hair's one thing, but that ascot - what was he thinking?

JD_1947 on 2014-11-24 11:04:41
. . its like looking in a mirror . . . but don't judge me by that . . .

The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
