Silent Monks and Thom's Holiday Meme

This is the third time that I'm posting about the Hallelujah Chorus, and I promise this will be the last. Today's version is something lighter from the serious tone that the first two carried. Journeywoman, led me to, according to her, 'a neat link' of HC and it is what I am sharing with you today. You may have seen it around already but what's wrong with laughing again and releasing toxins off the body? Besides we're supposed to be merry this season, aren't we?

Who did you see kissing where?

Here comes Thom, yehey! :-)



Thom's Holiday Fill in the Blanks Meme:

I saw __Bad Boy__ kissing __Regine Mae__
Underneath the _bamboo bed_ last night
They didn't see me __toot___
Down the __cracks__ to have a __woot__
They thought that I was __drinking__
in my __lil' bar__ fast __chilling__

Then I saw __Bad Boy__ kissing __Regine Mae__
Underneath the __bamboo bed__ last night

Oh what a _scandal__ it would have been
If __Snow White__ had only seen
__Bad Boy__ kissing __Regine Mae__ last night.


Note: Bad Boy is a Philippine action star, also known as a local womanizer and rumored to have a crush on Regine Mae, Asia's songbird. Regine Mae is dating former Miss Australia's ex-hubster. Snow White is how Bad Boy calls his wife after their divorce. Everything is product of a can't-think-of-anyone-else-to-abuse-at-the-moment imagination.

OMG...I had to subscribe to this in YouTube...It was just hysterical. The one holding the and...kept looking around...it was just too funny. And it wasn't until almost the end I figured out there are people behind the curtain moving the words up...LOL. I thought they were like on clips being controlled with their feet LOL...But the funniest one of all was the second to the last on the right side. Jumping up and down when they held the signs up...I couldn't stop laughing on that. Well done my friend.

Your Meme is brilliant. LOL Very well done my friend. :) Bad Boy is a scum bag LOL. :) But I love the name he gave Snow White LOL :) Well done :)

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
