Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

MaggieD says:

Helen, I am afraid I might have sent you down the wrong path, it has nothing to do with your proffession, but more to do with your familial relationship ....

Twiglet says:

OJ says:

!!! What are the Dawsons doing in the European Capital of Culture 2008 without my knowledge? Hmm?

The Mersey Sisters?

You know those three iconic buildings are collectively known as the "three Graces". Was that what you were getting at?

taniwha says:

The Nolan Sisters ... somehow. Are either in the mood for dancing?

9th Jan 2008, 18:07

MaggieD says:

Oh dear, this has to be where I admit to my most cringeworthy pun .... the song is one of Leonard Cohen's .... the band of the same name is the Sisters of Mercy (Mersey) ..... well I did warn you ....

10th Jan 2008, 21:49

FilbertFox says:

Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on.
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.
Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long.

10th Jan 2008, 22:22

MaggieD says:

FF, yep, that's the one ..... I still remember it from my angst filled youth ....... nearly 30 years ago now ......

10th Jan 2008, 22:32

taniwha says:

Geeez Maggie ... so oblique but funny. But don't take me back to my Leonard Cohen washed days ...

JokerXL says:

I was so nearly there with my "Tom cat & the crazy sisters" with their #32 hit "oh Liverpool log, lovely Liverpool log"

11th Jan 2008, 09:49
