No, i would not!

Diane Mandy said...

Meno, I knew I couldn't count on you. :-)

ms chica said...

This is kinda dangerous. I wrote an entire post on Egan's blog once in the comment section. If only I had that much free time tonight...

Bluepaintred said...

maybe. It all depends on how much time I have while trawling my bloglines.
If I am busy but want to find out who is doing what, no one gets comments, however, if I am waiting for the stupid potatoes to cook so I can eat becuase I am starving, then I have lots of time and everyone will get a comment.

So yea, maybe.

Diane Mandy said...

Chica - what if I dared you?

Diane Mandy said...

Blue- Can I guess what's for dinner tonight?

Dora said...

Oh...I get it ....WE are the entertainment tonight! Ok...hmmm... what shall I say???
Not much, I'm afraid. My life is deathly dull! Unlike certain bloggers who travel all over Europe, taking lovely photos, and making me wish I was there too. Oh well, I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you. So you have to keep writing, please....OK?

Diane Mandy said...

Dora- Awww. You're making me blush. Seriously, I *had been* thinking about writing about the possible critter in my bathroom pipes. Is that vicarious enough?

Dora said...

eeww, critter in the bathroom pipes...ugh! Tell us all about it.

ms chica said...

Dare accepted.


Suddenly the silence was broken. Insert famous woman's name here shifted uncomfortably in his leather chair trying to recreate the insert adjective here sound that left everyone in the parlor believing she had in fact insert course euphemism for passing gas here. Unable to coax the family insert animal breed here out of the insert name of piece of furniture here to shoulder the blame, she attempted to insert adverb change the subject to something less cacophonous than her unfortunate vegetable choice for dinner.

"Have you given any consideration to insert plural noun #1 here?"

"insert plural noun #1, again?"

"Why, yes! They are all the rage with the over forty set. You can't swing a dead cat in this town without striking at least half a dozen transvestites with insert adjective insert plural noun #1, again."

"I did not know that! I was under the impression that the quality was completely inferior to Insert nationality here models."

"If you pair it with the right accessories, it's an investment that will yield for decades."

"What kind of accessories?"

"Well there's always insert color insert noun, insert shape insert noun, insert size insert noun, but ideally you would choose a insert adjective insert noun"

Without warning, insert famous woman's name here colon interrupted the conversation to speak it's mind again....In a futile effort to rescue her decorum, she twirled her hair with well-manicured fingers and said, "I'm sorry I don't usually try to speak when my mouth is full..."

Cheryl said...

Monica said...

kenju said...

Of course. What a brilliant post. I'll have to try this sometime...LOL

Andrea said...

Considering I am at least comment 18, I'd say yah, we'd still tune in and comment :)

G in Berlin said...

I would, but probably my responses would be a tad boring!

meno said...

snorting at ms. chica.

Lynda said...

Bow to the queen of commentors... in fact, we shall dub thee 'The pied piper of Comments..."

Lynda said...

Also... how weird is this... my first wedding anniversary with Mr Dear Husband was spent in...
Yep you guessed it... Prague!
We only have a photo of the 2 of us reflected in one of those odd mirrors they put in so you can see if there is traffic coming around a sharp bend... you can imagine how flattering that is!

The Grunt said...

Absolutely! Of course, you offer plenty anyways.

Diane Mandy said...

Wow! People! Who knew? I'm gonna offer you nothing more often. Oh wait... I usually do anyway. :-)

Chica said...

Even with my broken thumb!

Diane Mandy said...

Chica, I ((heart)) you!

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

But of course :)

Diane Mandy said...

You guys keep going and I'm never going to post again. :-)

Diane Mandy said...

Lynda- Dare you to post the photographs!

Two dares in one past? Well, it worked with Ms. Chica. Yours could be equally entertaining.

Tiny Frog said...

absolutely!!!!!!!!!!!!

evercurious said...

xoxo! Much love!

AmyD said...

Of course I would! Except secretly, I know you will ALWAYS have something to offer, so what do I know? ;o)

Diane Mandy said...

Amy, wait till you see tomorrow's post and then tell me I always have something to offer. ;-)

Jill said...

Look at all you offered by not offering what you considered anything.

Simply Delightful.

Charlotte said...

ms chica hit the nail on the head, obviously.

I'm just sitting here passing, uh, time while I, uh, work. Or so.

Dianne said...

Wow it's like Seinfeld! he had a show about nothing and now you've created a fascinating post about nothing.

It's like a commentor party.

How do you do these thing!?

I often adore you.

Diane Mandy said...

Diane, your so sweet!

This is like the best party *ever*!

But the clock is about to strike midnight (in Germany, at least). Then what?

Diane Mandy said...

Charlotte- between Twitter and blogging--I'm really wondering how anything gets done. It's amazing!
