Dreary rainy cooler day here....lububrious sums it up. Class is in session....homework on the blackboard, apples on my desk.
That you are! Good morning, early bird!
Is lugubrious one of the upcharge services at Jiffy Lube?
A++ Yeah, but they ludicrously overcharge.
...and with the 182nd. pick in the NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select Lugubrious Jones, Defensive Tackle, Apoplectic State.
Good morning! I am tired of the lugubrious weather we have been having all week. Rain, rain, go away, and take this cold front with you!
We have rainy cool lugubrious weather today also. I like it once in awhile and today it suits me bc I’m going to bake some wedding table cookies.
Good day to cheer yourself up baking cookies, then.
What happened to May’s spring flowers? I was just getting comfortable in my sandals, back to shoes and socks with this rain.
My wife saw on Facebook that Kennywood closed at 4 yesterday and gave everyone a raincheck. That was nice.
Headed to breakfast, be back in an hour or so.
Ti can you please ping the denizens of wftd to this SAVE THE DATE.... Monday in WFTD we are going to have a BRIDAL SHOWER for Neo. Yes, soother I said bridal shower. One week from tomorrow neo will be headed for connubial bliss and on Monday we will fete him.
So, students, find a thoughtful gift and come prepared on Monday— can be a .gif a .jpeg, a word of advice (we have many longtime marrieds among our ranks) a song, a dance... Whatever you deem appropriate or inappropriate, as the case may be. I will put aside some cookies to bring, as well.
Oh nice, so they can come back for a full day. Good for them!
My potted flowers on the desk look great from all the rain!
The mainstream has never been curious
That Mooch-elle lives the good life, luxurious
With no complications
While the unemployed sulk, lugubrious
Frankenstein vs Godzilla? It sounds like a Kerry impersonation of Lugubrious import!
(I’d be rooting for Godzilla.)
Snow and ice (or rain) force that closure?
