Twee Post (Horrors!)

This morning a spider tried to rappel on me while I was in the shower. Normally, this particular spider is very polite. He stays in his corner and plays cards. What happened? I’ll tell you what I think happened. I think the spider started slipping on the ceiling condensation. His situation was as follows: rappel, or fall to a watery demise. He seemed upset. But what about me?! I was upset too, and my hair was full of soap!

Also, I think we ought to give Manhattan back to the Dutch.

Hear! Hear! Let's write up a proposal to the Dutch.

"Here is Manhattan.
We'd like you to have it.
Everybody says they love it.
So, Enjoy!"

Twee is my favorite word, and I'm highly offended that you should use it in such a flippant context. Twee-usage calls for careful location amid serious sentences having to do with monkey pajamas and lemonade and Roslyn Carter.

However, I'll have you know that two nights ago, a spider rappelled down from the ceiling while I was sleeping and nipped at my alabaster neck. Today, I have a bright red bulbous bite in the middle of my neck, which I am trying to cover over with various faux 17th c. chokers. It's quite unseemly.

Would the Dutch then give it back to the Indians in exchange for some beads and a case of Pepsi Spice, or are they just pretty much SOL on that deal?

i love that you used the word "rappel" - i use it often in speach but never knew how to spell it before (and, am entirely too lazy to utilize spellcheck to find out)

and if the dutch have ever tasted pepsi spice, they most likely will not want it in the trade...

p.s. i [heart] your blog
