I like to make snow angels, then make the angel look like it has a little bit of a weight problem. Not sure why, but I find this act very fulfilling.

I make my angels look like they are pear shaped and bottom heavy. You have to wiggle back and forth just right.

Ain't nothin' more pathetic than an angel with wide hips.

You're just making Titian angels.

Very Ishmaelian, even Jungian, perhaps Godly!
You see, God also likes to whip up a batch of critters now and then out of materials at hand.
We're told that God did it out of loneliness.(and out of mud) You, on the other hand, find it "fulfilling".
Also, like God, you've created an "imperfect" angel. But unlike God, you did it on purpose because you like "chubby" angels. God did it by accident, thinking He had created a good Companion for Himself, silly God!
At least the sun will melt your mistakes. We humans are stuck with God's mistakes!:)

Botticelli Angels

(Yeah, but "Titian" sounds funnier...)

Yeadon, Titian did his in oil. I think fat angels in snow might very well be the penultimate statement of man's struggle with global climate change, don't you think? Especially Seattle snow, which is so much more transient and ephemeral than, say, Maine or Minnesota snow.

Yeadon,

I have to admit that I get a chuckle out of your Ishmael imitations. I guess I'd call it a guilty pleasure. Though your heart is undoubtecly pure, and your ear is SpotOn, I think it begins to border on cruelty to parody the idiosyncracies of non-public persons (actors, politicians, etc.) - or at least to make a habit of it, perhaps.

I know I don't enjoy it when people keep making fun of my hunchback.

there's nothing wrong with driving an econobox. Good for you. You'll be laughing all the way to the bank.

Me too. There is a brilliance to what Ishmael writes. No doubt about it. Now, I don't know Ishmael from a random guy down the street. But I love his posts in a way that I can't explain. This is perhaps one way to honor them.

And yes, I am truly now a target. Warts and all.

Which leads me to ask ... anyone ever found a decent off-the-shelf wart removal system? I use duct tape. Always have. Apparently it starves the little critters.

PatCox

They now sell the frozen CO2 wart removal systems, you can "burn" (by which I mean "freeze") them like the docs used to, look in the drugstore, that way works great.

Harry Miller

Duct tape! I'm going to try that.

Now that I'm trying to get in shape I get to watch all the highlights on Big-screen TV while I take my elliptical journey. Somebody in one of yesterdays games played in snow, scored a touchdown, lay down in the end zone and made a nice snow angel. Unfortunately he didn't know enough to make a fat one.

It's good to know who among us has warts. In the future, I will be forced to stare at your hands before shaking them. It is nothing personal. More of a tick.

About 15 years ago I yanked one out with some needle nose pliers ... right out the palm of my hand. Can't believe I don't have lockjaw.

When my doc first put me on blood pressure medications, suddenly all warts, blemishes, and moles on my body disappeared. Conicidence? I think not. Diovan is a miracle drug.

I'll still probably stare. Sorry.

Hey my wart's between my toes (not plantar) and appeared soon after I started on B.P. medication.

Yeadon
12-22-2008, 11:39 AM
I've never had a plantar ... but I've seen the devastation first hand. Looks extremely painful.

Between your toes is a lousy spot for a wart. Constant friction. Ouch.

Sublime: so Jungian.

Yeadon
12-22-2008, 12:16 PM
Yes. Usually friction wears away at a subject, in turn making it less, but here, the friction accentuates it, making it more.

I always thought warts came from wart hogs.

Hope you took a slug of rye whisky before that little stunt.

Remind me never to impugn the manliness of Puget Sounders or ex-journalists. Sheesh.

Oil is too bland.
