Relocate the name-thing

She has a better idea what to do with it.
Who would have expected that this is such a nice thing to wear on your neck?
Unfortunately, this means you will not learn the name.



Gee I guess that makes the decree:

What have you worn that's generally not used for clothing?

decree, but not really:
What I have worn that's generally worn differently:

This long thing to wear on the neck, (like K???a does now with the name-thing), how was it called in English?
I'm often wearing it on my head. It's thin enough to fit under the bicycle helmet and it protects the ears from the wind.

"ggh. When it absolutely, positively, has to be sent molpishly."

For decree, I once wore a box as a costume because I was going as a box of cat food. (My friend was the cat).
Of course, a costume is something that is made to be worn, so does that count?

Also, I see that the auto-generated text in b's sig has changed again. It says "Enter name." I went to bsta and saw that there's a new one, but I don't know how to UNG it. Where are GnomeAnne and ggh? OK, let's see if I can do it:

An update on addams:

I was getting very worried. She wasn't answering phone calls or texts, and she hadn't picked up the last PM I sent her. I also knew she hadn't posted in the forum for a while. I have a phone number for someone who has been helping addams out, and was just about to call her when I got a short PM. She said that she fell down, and was in the hospital with pneumonia. :( I guess her landlord just happened to stop by that day and found her, thank goodness.

I did call addams's friend, and she said that addams had been very sick. She was in the hospital for 5 days, I think. She must have been so sick she passed out. :cry: But now she is home again, on anti-micromolpy meds, and getting stronger. Send her all the molpish thoughts you can.

The Batman from the LEGO movie was a fun Batman, so I'll have to check that out. The Dark Knight ones were decent, and Bruce who is becoming Batman slowly but isn't yet on the show Gotham is fun too.
I didn't find Man of Steel particularly molpish and I skipped BvS and SS as neither appeals to me. But as I mentioned previously, Wonder Woman is a finely burned steak. I wanna see it on the seaish screen a second time.

Also my dad has a lung infection and was in the hospital but he's home now and is on the mend.

Oh, addams, do get better! Molpish thoughts are going out in all the languages I know! I miss your weather reports and general treeishness. It's been hot here but just cooled off. Now there are occasional attempts to rain; nothing serious but enough to bring stuff in I don't want to get wet (including a seaish tarp that needs cleaning anyway, but whose drying I want to be able to control).

I found Sprocket and Valarya (or rather, connected them to their avatars); details forthcoming. Other corrections too but I've since forgotten and will have to poke around again. In (what passes for) my mind, Sprocket (the screenname) and xis avatar have always been linked, but at the time I was looking, that link was not operational. No idea why. Then all of a sudden the link reformed, for no known reason.

For old decree, some years back I was visiting friends in Oregon, and we were eating outside in the yard. It was an utterly wingish dix, there was a gentle breeze and crows soaring overhead. The meal had just been served, and at that moment I received enlightenment from overhead.

At the Time I did not know the correct epithet to use. I do now.

Apropos of new decree, what is it with ponchos anyway? As a kid in the boy scouts I wanted (and got) a poncho for hiking in the rain. It seemed to make sense at the time, but it means your arms are separated from your eyeballs by an opaque cloth. How do you get anything done under a poncho that needs hand-eye coordination? I guess it also keeps whatever you're working on dry, but I've decided that sleeves are too useful to surrender.

Well, there's always "this girl" and "that other girl". And the (US)TV show "That Girl" had many girls. And there's the Beatle's song "This Boy", which is probably not useful (yet) in the Balthaframes.

Oh, and BlitzGirl, that was most definitely a pun. A "found pun", but a pun nonetheless. And while I could have found a donut for you, I'm not sure about a found donut. So, we'll let you off with a warning. (I Vitssagen Ja what you did just there.)

ETA Protip: Be careful when going to Facebug after OTTing. I almost wished a non-OTTer a happy birthdip. Wonder what his response would have been?
