Two things

1. I strongly dislike it when people wear their scarf on the outside of their coat. Half assedly tied about the neck area. What does this do for you? Why are you showing off your ugly scarf? Scarves are for warmth - so they should be inside the coat, keeping your precious neck/chest/front parts warm. 2. If I changed my blog name to AA Von for Now, would I then be more at the top of others' blog rolls than at the bottom? I'm getting a complex. Just became aware I'm using italics oddly today. It's like a bad Grover skit from Sesame Muppet Street Show - like the one where he runs up to the camera and yells "Near!" then runs back away and yells "Far!". Do that in your mind when you read the above italicized words: "Outside!" runrunrunrun "Inside!" runrunrun "Top!" runrunrun "Bottom!" runrunrun

1. Fully agreed. No one needs to show off that they shop at H&M like the rest of the known universe. Related to this, I'm looking for a scarf, but the only nice ones are already worn by most of the general populace. Oy.

2. Actually, if I move my blogroll back to "Most recently updated" then all you have to do is post. It's simple!

Although there may be some coding juju that puts them in reverse alphabetical order.

I put all my blog neighborhood links down at the bottom of the blogroll. It's like a sekrit link menu for those in the know. I usually work from the bottom up, so Vonny is FRIST!

Von said...

Yay! I'm a frist! Hey...what's a frist?
You callin' me names mister?

Yay! I was floating!

Worse than half-assedly tied about the neck area is the method of just laying it under the lapel flaps of a wooly coat, and around the collar, not warming anything. So annoying.

I left a comment... I know I did! I'm not that sick!

Grrrrrr.

MenD- go check out an decent estate sale or two. You can find some awesome scarves that are not to be had everywhere.

Von- did you gosh darn package FINALLY SHOW UP!?!?!?!!@@!@11?

I'm still attempting to burn the Schnapps, but the PC gods are laughing at me... as are fish and ZRM...

jeez, jen don't kill yourself. I can make an extra couple and mail them myself. I thought a leafing might work better, but it's OK, get some rest.

Also, get a Mac. Heh.

Jennifer said...

Your CD should be in Von's hot little paws as we speak. I ripped it, but my computer is refusing to burn an entire CD so since it was on mine, I sent the one you sent to her. Snag is waiting, as he should. I was trying to send her some Happy Schnapps Combo.

Snag is waiting, as he should

In a luxury hotel, apparently.

Von said...

Jennifer - I don't have it yet, but that could be because I haven't checked the mail...umm...all week (yep, I've been that busy). I will check it when I get home today!!!
Zombie - pleeze send meee some Happy Schnapps Combo....thanxz

Scarf is a verb to be used with a food-based noun.

P.S. Bleratil: Do not take unless recommended by a doctor, or a fellow blogger. Bleratil may have side effects that last a long time.

Interesting questions, interesting blog...
I always put my scarf inside my coat, but my girlfriend orders me to put it outside. Why?
Please check out my Blog!!!!

Von said...

Henning P - Welcome! And thanks for stopping by. Don't listen to her. Scarves go inside to keep you warm. Always.

Move over "and a chili dog"... I think ZRM has penned a new tagline.
