maybe the doobie redoobie explains the forgetfulness - perhaps the smoke wasn't from the office toaster - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-07: 11:36:00

The smell would have been much better. Whatever he was cooking stunk like hell. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-07: 11:41:00

whenever someone burns toast in our office everyone yells "group stroke" - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-07: 11:55:00

Pronunciation: DEE cor ridg ib ul

Sentence: It's not often that we get to stare into the Sun and feel good about it after, and this certainly wasn't one of those times for Darian. His decorrigibility still astounded his brother on new levels, his rIcarus feat less successful with the assistance of plexiglass eyewear.

Etymology: de + corrigible de is pretty obvious. i picked corrigable, because i think that once you've made the mistake, you can learn from it, but then you unlearn from it and commit it again, so that's how you know it's stupid even when you repeat it.

in a...good way? - jadenguy, 2007-06-07: 14:57:00

definitely in a good way - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-07: 16:44:00
