Yikes.

Watch the aspirin/naproxen/bourbon mix. Very bad for the stomach.

How much do you have to go?
Until the end!
YAY!

DUST!

(i liked it better. woo)
*loff*

No lowercase, though.
further proof i am hated by the universe.

;)
boo, nolowercase.

tisane

Okay, I have to ask even though I'll probably look a little silly:

Are pots tisane actually from Tisane? The tea place/bar on Farmington Ave.? Or is tisane a kind of drink?

I like Tisance, the tea place/bar. Fun atmosphere and yummy artichoke dip. I don't think I've ever had tisane the drink.

Re: tisane

Hee. They are not.

A tisane is an herbal infusion, what is also called an herbal tea. It's not actually an herbal tea, because, well, tea is tea.

Herbs are herbs.

I went to a poetry slam there about a million years ago, and keep meaning to go back. It was a nice place.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

I liked pinion and the other hermaphroditic words, though.
Write a nasty letter to Random House. *g* They're in charge, alas.
I have to admit, as much as I liked the idea of the titles each with two mutually incompatible meanings as wordplay, I think I like Dust better as a title...
Well, you and Marketing can be wrong together. *g*
Hey, I plan to read this book even if it's named Freaky Cheese of Doom :-)
...yours for accurate titling?
I agree. And I had a feeling Marketing wasn't going to go for the new set.
The saddest part is that I hate agreeing with Marketing!
So what you're saying is that the two of you are conventional, predictable, and aimed at the lowest common denominator? ;-)
:-P

If you're trying to get me to not buy this book when it comes out by insulting me, it won't work :-D
Hee.

Ehn. Dust is an acceptable title. But I'd rather have something more interesting.

But they'd prefer we be as mundane as possible, it seems, lately.
I hadn't changed the title on the folder -- sometimes being slow at the filing is an advantage ;)

(And I liked Dust for a title anyhow)

If Only I *Had* Told You So, Like I So Wanted To.

Aha-ahahahahahha! HA!

*points and mocks*

*gently of course*

Re: If Only I *Had* Told You So, Like I So Wanted To.

Don't make me ban you.

Re: If Only I *Had* Told You So, Like I So Wanted To.

"You can take my posting privileges, but you can never take my willingness to buy this book!"

Re: If Only I *Had* Told You So, Like I So Wanted To.

*snrch*

You're just lucky I'm too fat and lazy to come over there and sit on you.

Also, just a few paragraphs from the lame-ass rough draft end of this lame-ass rough draft book.
