the flower that haunts us all

[More videos from ben_hoyt]

and I really like Fressia, Peonies & anything alpine.

There's so many beautiful flowers, I don't know if I could pick just one favorite.

brightpearl 01-31-2008 02:33 PM


spring comes;
grass grows by itself...

craig johnston 01-31-2008 05:03 PM

no no, it's something to do with seeds and the german nation.

i like snapdragons!

they come in lots of different colours and you can
squeeze their necks and they open their mouths and
it's really funny when bees crawl in.


Jack Flanders 01-31-2008 07:13 PM

^^^ "the german nation" snort!!!:D

too many to list but here's a few

Frieda 01-31-2008 08:24 PM

i like the hippeastrum best for now-- one of mine just started to bloom in the wrong season-- a little bit of summer :)

Grass (or sakura?) -> seeds (most plants have such, or?) -> German nation :confused: (I only know about oaks being symbolic in that direction)

Anyway, snapdragons are cool :)

Jack Flanders 01-31-2008 08:41 PM

^^^ the germination of the seeds :o Craig was being "punny!" :)

I like snaps too!!

Stephi_B 01-31-2008 09:12 PM

^Aye :)

NEW question of the day...
what are you listening to?

l'azizza 02-01-2008 05:14 AM

grrr Brynn just beat me to asking the new question. Great question Freida, great answers as well.

sound: I'm itching to hear some PJ Harvey so will look for some next, but right now there's a male cat on the chair next to me (Needs a Name) grooming a foster kitten. It's pretty noisy and grunty.

Frieda 02-01-2008 05:24 AM

i am listening to myself chewing on my breakfast, my computer humming and the storm outside

Stephi_B 02-01-2008 07:50 AM

XFM London and the sudden stillness after my long-not-seen-friend-who-is-back-in-Berlin-now who visited me today in office is gone.

brightpearl 02-01-2008 11:27 AM

I am listening to myself, to see if I can pick out the melody, but it's rather faint today.

Marcus Bales 02-01-2008 11:42 AM

The freezer hums a low note
The refrigerator too;
The furnace rumbles and hot air sighs.
A failing neon bulb's delicate
and intermittent sizzle descants
over the thumps and tenors
of the playing cats.
The keyboard clicks.
And in my head the memory of
last night's sustained delicious moan.

Angry Kid Hoyt 02-01-2008 12:37 PM

Old Old CD :
Black - Wonderful Life

Just thought to youtube search for the video - and lo and behold...

Gosh, I loved this Album.

auntie aubrey 02-01-2008 08:43 PM

the spouse. :)

T.I.P. 02-02-2008 05:43 AM

i'm listening to ventilation & heating noises, and some faint traffic noises emanating from Houston avenue.

lukkucairi 02-02-2008 02:05 PM

husband in the kitchen unloading the dishwasher, and car talk on NPR

a faint hum from the central heating, and the fan as it comes on

slight tinnitus in my right ear

thumpity thump noises of my fingers on the HP keyboard

tiny ticcing of the HD...

question of the day ? for sunday 3rd february

how good is your couch/settee/sofa?

brightpearl 02-03-2008 04:41 PM

It's got a nice beat, you can dance to it.

I'd give it a 7.

trisherina 02-03-2008 04:52 PM

I'm more attached to the one upstairs, because I have good memories of the two of us playing Sega Game Gear together, and sharing many a happy nap through hypothyroidism and pregnancy. Today it is mostly Katie's domain, where she retires as soon as the house is empty. It's a gooder.

Bman 02-03-2008 05:18 PM

I have a really stiff, uncomfortable, really snooty sofa. Maybe it's stiff because I haven't broken it in, and I haven't broken it in because it's too stiff, either way it really fails at its purpose in life.

Frieda 02-03-2008 06:54 PM

ohh it's so good, i give it a 9,5.

it's more comfortable to sleep on than my bed. it's big and soft and 2 meters wide, in a linen/cotton mix in beige.

it goes *poof* when you sit down on it, and then, you sink away in it, it hugs you. i'm very happy with it :):)

lukkucairi 02-03-2008 07:15 PM

The one in the basement is now a beater. I dragged it here from Chicago (where I bought it new), and it's so old and comfy and stained and gross...the dog sleeps on it, and I fall asleep in front of the TV on it. It should, however, be in someone's dorm room. 8 out of 10 for effort.

The one in the living room is a wicker 2-seater from pier 1 - far more comfy than it looks - and within headphone lead reach of my music library. 8.5 out of 10 for subtlety

There's one in our storage unit - it's covered in playa dust and has a sinister burn mark on one of the arms. We'll pull it out and deploy it again this year in our BRC living space. In its present location I give it a 3 out of 10. in its natural habitat, it's a definite 9.5.

Frieda 02-03-2008 08:26 PM

here it is, my couch/settee/sofa!

i've changed my mind-- it's a 10 out of 10 :):)

auntie aubrey 02-03-2008 09:15 PM

^ i recognize at least one of those pillows.

my sofa is tired of trying and is just phoning it in. actually the frame is marvelous but we had to replace the foam cores of the cushions last year. and the upholstery has lost its chenilley goodness and has become something of a blah entity.

we're just biding our time until our next move. then it's sectional time. oh yes, i covet a sectional. YOU try sharing a sofa with a 6'3" man who likes to stretch out.

l'azizza 02-03-2008 11:02 PM

A few years back when I had an apartment and a student loan I ordered new furniture. I'm fond of napping on the couch and wanted an extra bed for visitors, so I bought a large sofa with a pull out bed.

When it was delivered, a wall was in the way- the couch wouldn't fit through. The delivery men offered to go up the back stairs, but still the fit would be diagonal and I didn't think think it would work. In addition, those sleeper- sofas are HEAVY. I picture one of the men losing their grip and falling of the stairway onto the driveway below, that heavy ass couch landing on top of them. I lost the delivery fee and got a love seat.

Of course any sofa would fit through the straight entryway of my house now. Getting a new one isn't a priority. I can sit on it just fine. I'm a bit of a minimalist and when I move, I'll likely abandon it.

lazizazza, i'm not sure if this settee is instigating fights with others or the others are ganging up on him?

look at setteefinder.com for area rescue group as well as national ones. setteefinder has an area where owners looking for new homes for their settees can post them. maybe craigslist?

for a settee rescue group not to take in owner surrenders is ridiculous, even though you are not seriously looking for a good home for it and are the sort of person that wants to "get rid of their settee by the weekend". when you call up the settee rescue group, mention that it's a gorgeous love seat with cushions. you'd like to donate its loose covers, throws, etc. can you or ar relative swing a monetary donation? minimally, if they say they can't take it and post on setteefinder or their own website, would you post a courtesy photo and description of it? take a cutesy up close photo, write a great description.

good luck!

PS - anyone able to offer a good home to this, my "basement guy" settee? he's become too much for me lately - a real handful but nothing that can't be cured with some good oldfashioned tlc and a firm hand.
pm me if you're interested thanks bye

Stephi_B 02-04-2008 08:08 AM

My two easy chairs get a 8.7 (the green one) and a 9.2 (unfortunately this one is covered with things atm) respectively.

My mattress (such a double-bed sized one) I use as couch, guest bed and whatnotall gets a 9.7.

Stephi_B 02-04-2008 10:41 AM

New q for Monday:

Do you have a 'dark side', that is some inner abyss, something scary (for yourself or/and for others if they'd behold it) ? Or are you what a friend of mine calls a 'bright person' (lacking 'darkness') ? Or do you think one cannot divide a personality in such categories as 'dark' and 'bright' or that there's always some kind of balance/mix ?

(Well, no question about Brightpearl here :) ;))

lukkucairi 02-04-2008 11:27 AM

no comment

Stephi_B 02-04-2008 11:54 AM

^Cool, not such a boring single-split personality like everybody, but a real double-split one!! ;)

Actually, I've never thought about any 'dark side' until that discussion with my friend.
But yes, I got one. And imo everybody has one, some more, some less, some (can) live it more on the outward, some (have to) keep it more on the inside. Mine's more kept inside. No details about the contents though. (Btw that's not the intention of the q.)

zero 02-04-2008 01:49 PM

never ever ask me that question again

I use to have a dark side, but eventually we got divorced and she's now married to someone else.
But for the moment, I find myself more intrigued by YOUR dark side. Does it include handcuffs and a whip?:cool:

Stephi_B 02-04-2008 02:54 PM

(Handcuffs are interesting, gotta try, but that's not necessarily what I'd consider 'dark', particularly not if they're pink and fluffy ;))

YEah I got a dark side--my skin side.

That's not true...I absolutely have a dark side, like all else does.
