So I've found that if I go to my profile page and look under my pic where it says discussions it leads me to the last thing I said, didn't know that before. I used to have to go to forum then look for it to get back here if I didn't wanna go through my email. Also, this is mainly for Val...a while ago you said you were unfamiliar with blogging and didn't know what blogspot was. I then noticed that you never comment on blogs and I wondered if you were missing them on this sight. If not...my bad but if you are missing them then you ought to check them out, lots of interesting things there. At the top of the page it says from Left to right main invite and than blogs...click here and start blogging please :) Also, Blogspot is a popular blogging sight and many mailartists have sites here, I know for certain E, Utopia, Arttower, Testtower, and RCBz do and there are lots of mailart projects to search for here too. OK...I'm done with my computer bit now. If you already knew all this...then my bad again ;)
As far as names go, I definitely feel it appropriate to stick with the V's so I shall assume the name Vara...but only for the loony discussions on the ViznVal Show ;) For Bear I vote Vear as he is apparently MIA, if going the Angels route maybe he could fill the slot of Bosley but a third angel is definitely needed. Hmmmmm....pick by humor potential or name possibilities? Vangie and Vooky if we need a sidekick or perhaps Vaterina up there sobbing in her wine would be a good third angel???? But I clearly understand that all these things will have to be approved by our local Latvian as it seems she somehow ended up getting 18,970 votes to my 1 which hardly seems fair by the way but I understand that some democracies just don't go your way and unless we can come up with another 18, 965 voters and all vote together that things will always go Vizma's way. Or...we could get another Latvian passport holder to join to make it a little more fair.
On a different note, anyone else notice the strange timing of Bear getting the white collar job offer and Bear being IUOMA absent?!? I'm afraid they may have snatched him and thrown him into a white collar brainwashing facility before he starts his new gig in the morning. The last thing he said to me is that his business cards would say Daniel Qualls but he would be answering to Danny :/ See what I mean...that's what they do, first they make you wear khaki pants, then they change your name and I'm afraid to think what might be after that. Please keep all digits crossed for Bear or "Danny" as it were to reappear here one day...even if he is wearing a golf shirt ;)
Yes, but we should have occasional Artistic Gorilla Raids elsewhere;
Oh Vara! You are too hilarious! That 2nd paragraph had me LAUGHING! All those V names!! Vangie and Vooky! Vaterina! Ha! I think we should call our "Danny" noVear, as he is no vear to be seen. I'm not impressed that he ran away from us to greener pastures before he could carve my rubber stamp. You were lucky Vara, you got yours in time.
Hey we can have lots of Angels, at least 6 because they kept changing them, and then there were Drew Barrymore's Angels, they can be newbies if we find some young blood to join us!
Oh I just looked up at Vaterina's wine and cheese and now I'm so hungry.
The Vees, yes Val, there are PLENTY of Vs Zs and Ss in Latvian. Not a great language to speak if you lithp.
Say hello to Vianca and Vrouble.
And the gorilla raids sound fun...we'll have to synchronise our Angels' Watches and choose our prey and attack all at once! You can be an Angel too Val,cos nobody knows who Charlie is.
Now I need to pounce on some food!
Kelly, signing off. Or Velly?????
Why don't they have lots of phones in China? Cos someone might Wing the Wong number!
Bonjour all you V's!
Does the Latvian language use lots of 'V's?
I will now tell you about the Great Scrabble Factory in the Sky and the History of European languages.
Once upon a time, many years ago -- and way before the Big Mac became seperated from the iMac and way before the iMac got seperated from the Plastic MacIntosh -- there was a Great Scrabble Factory in the Sky. It made Scrabble games, of course -- boards, racks and, most importantly, letters.
One day there was an accident and the whole thing blew up. All the letters were scattered by the prevailing winds over what is now Europe. They did not fall randomly across the continent. Finland got all the 'K's'. France got all the letters which had accents on them. Germany got all the oomlauts.The contents of the Unfinished Letters Vat ended up in Russia, which is why the country still uses a different script. The UK got all the 'T's (which is why tea is the national drink). Etc.
I don't know where all the 'V's ended up. LatVia?
I try and avoid Blogs, cos I ain't got the time, nor really the interest. It's hard enough keeping up with y'all, making a full scale model of the Eiffet Tower out of matchsticks, going to the bar, heping out with the Greek economy (I biught some feta cheese yesterday), going to the bar again, looking after the cats, and so on and so forth, that i really must stay away from this wretched computer.
Which is why i will say goodbye, now.
PS, THANKS Arac, I will take a lok at them thar Blogs.
How do we know that you speak Latvian?
It could be an idle boast.
Your Number one Idol and Fan, Val
If I wanted to boast, Val, I'd say thet I'm fluent in 7 languages and look like Elle McPherson and am CEO of a billion dollar company and I invented ersatz diamonds. But that would just be showing off...or bending the truth. (bending and completely breaking actually!)
Angie, I only spoke Latvian until I was 5, then started to learn English at school (here in Oz) so it's not really that amazing that my English is so rooting amazing!!!!!
You do look like Elle McPherson but a little prettier. Just a little, she's awfully pretty. And, about that billion dollar company ... send red purse full of money or the pooch gets it!
Good thing we rooted out the details of your Latvian/Ozzie languages ...
Being Hignorant, I wonder who Elle MacPherson is (I'm sure a photo of her will follow)? My daughter speaks 7 or more languages, and, fortunately for her, doesn't look much like me. Although she does resemble me socially, linguistically, intellectualy etc.
Did you see that they've found a 11.5+ mega-carrot pink diamond in WA? If you ever come across one on Waipinga Beach I'll look after it for you.
After all those years in Oz (well about 6 years from what I can work out) do you still speak Latvian?
I'm a little bit upset that Angie hasn't complimented me on my English. I haven't lived in England since 1 November 1977, but still manage to get by, sort of, er, um, if you know what I mean, like.
Val, you speak English? I hadn't noticed. I thought everything was translated from Dutch.
You must be sleeping under a lot of rocks, Val, if you haven't heard of Elle. She's only been famous for 30 years.
What's this about you being a bachelor again and drinking until Easter? Haven't you had enough practice? You haven't told us about your household, just the cats - have you got a wife, husband, selection of rent boys/girls?? Drinking until Easter could be dangerous all by yourself unless you have a friend there to put a blanket on you when you fall asleep mid conversation, or hold back your locks while you vomit.
You really must take care of yourself Val.
Always thinking what's best for my mates,
That bloody NoVear went AWOL without even sending me one mail art!! If you're reading this Vear I think you should send me a stack of glue sticks and pens and rubbers from your new job. Or your first pay cheque.
Hello Petals, Sweetheasrs, Ducks, Mates, Chucks etc (all NE England affectionate greetings),
Well I was enjoying being a bachelor, but then I had to come to the UK. As to my partner/marital status, let's jjust sya that I have my own very large harem. There are a few vacancies (ladies only, natch) for the occasional night when I'm available in September and December, so if you'd like to reserve a date just send a photo and a large cheque. Or a large photo and a Czech.
Elle isn't part of my harem -- at least I don't think she is, but with all those gals around it's hard to say. Perhaps that's why Vear has been quiet of late, I did ask him to check out the harem when he wasn't wotrking. (I also suggested that he'd done enough to rescue the US economy by now and should retire).
I don't seem to have been drinking all that much laterly, so must make iup on it.
NORMAL SERVICE WILL BE RESUMED, I HOPE, IN ABOUT 10 DAYS TIME.
