S-A-P-P-H-I-R-E

Postby Mary Hatch Bailey » Sun, 14 May 2006 8:55 am

S is for saucy answers, that play upon our minds

A is for attitude, the sly winking kind

P is for petite, let's leave that alone

P is also for pithy and her funny, light-hearted tone

H is for home, can she really be here?

I is for Indian, the one we hold so dear

R is for responses, just don't call them 'short and sweet'

E is for Excitement, now that our Forum family is complete!

It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Umm Jolmar, there's no need for you to gang up with Eric. You'll be in trouble when I get back. :evil:

Learn some finesse is what I meant Mr. Netherlander. 8-)

I'll try:

s - Saucy
a - arachnid
p - princess ( :? )
p - parochial
h - heavenly
i - indomitable
r - rapacious
e - even-keeled

How's that for balance?

Greetings Sapph.....wish I were in India too. I've never been there and it's always been one of my dreams to. Guess a land is different when it's your home, but to me it says 'Mystery, History, Crush and Heat' not sure why, oh, and most of all 'Colours'.....

I think I'll start a new thread up asking which words peeps would use to describe their...homelands, or perhaps...members of the forum... :D :D

Hello Sapph. :)
Have you left Delhi yet for the cooler climes of Simla or somewhere else?

Don't feel left out Quasi- I whipped up one for you!


Quintessentially sarcastic in every way
Unusually disfigured in face and mind (see avatar!)
Always saying what you want to say
Sarcastic, witty and sometimes unkind
Imagine this board without him
Methinks life would be dull and dreary
Oh Quasi you sometimes go out on a limb
Doesn't matter your typo's make you hard to read clearly
Only one Quasi could ever exist
..... thank god cos he's almost half the time pissed!
