Ah, the Boojum is trying to be a Snark.

And well, we are an open-minded board, but it's always more positive to lead with who makes a suitable partner rather than who doesn't.

Hey CF is a reader! Actually not so much the Snark as I have an admiration for Boojum Trees Fouquria columnaris. Funny looking plant, funny sounding name.

I never had a fear of clowns, even after I saw "It"... "Kujo" didn't make me scared of dogs, why should Pennywise change my opinion? My favorite childhood doll -- the equivalent of a "blanky" to some kids -- was a clown and I loved it and took it everywhere.

Maybe it's a European thing but I love the origins of the clown in art and preformance, I'd argue the Commedia Dell'Arte originated many of our modern dramatic archetypes.

Monkeys, on the other hand, are clearly evil and always bad news. Keep them the eff away from me!

Eric,

After a lengthy debate with myself over the wisdom of doing so (based on the reactions of those who had done so before me), I finally clicked on your movie.

....and found I enjoyed it very much!!! So, Thank You!!!

The music is quite beautiful, which balanced the rest very nicely, I thought.


I'm not copying it here. With my luck this would be the first on the new page and I'd have just undone all that hard page-turning work. Can't have that.

That's not "worse"- that's much much better!

I have the sudden urge to backcomb my sideburns & go grocery shopping in a dress. Again.
