You expect accidenatal posts made by my elbows to be spelled correctly??
Here, and for the benefit of those who doubt evolution. I shall just randomly whack more keys>>>
Call me Ishmael. Some years ago-never mind how many long precisely-having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself involuntarily passing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberatly stepping onto the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off-then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself on his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.
There now is your insular city of the Manhattoes, belted round by wharves as Indian isles by coral reefs - commerce surrounds it with her surf. Right and left, the streets take you waterward. Its extreme down-town is the battery, where that noble mole is washed by waves, and cooled by breezes, which a few hours previous were out of sight of land. Look at the crowds of water-gazers there.
Harriett Beecher Stowe lost her copyright to Uncle Tom's Cabin. In her bid to stop illegal printing of her book, a judge denied her rights, saying she had written too important a book that was for the people. No one person could claim it. (or some such wording)
I had to go back and look three times to see why you were reminding me of the importance of kahpeerytz...then I realized it was my poor spelling upon which you were attempting to focus my limited attention..
Should I be giving you grief for leaving out "ting tang??" Or did you deliberately leave it out to avoid having to send a nickle to ASCAP??
I do like to be frugle, but in this case, it is my limited memory of lyrics. And I thought it was the Purple People Eater song, not the Witch Doctor. How does the Purple People Eater song go, anyway? One of my brothers had a Purple People Eater plastic action figure. It was purple. It had to be one of the first Purple People Eater items and one of the first action figures. Obviously, I like typing Purple People Eater.
Ah, well, Halloween is over. We only got three Trick or Treaters. We live a bit out of the way. My husband used to dress up as a Mad Scientist to answer the door at our old house where we had dozens of kids. No use doing that here. So now I have to go eat a bag of candy--
