that is a nice fern, fern. where on earth did you find such a wonderful fern? it's sooooo, soooo, green!

Always On Watch said...

Nanc,
How does that fern story go?

This is an outstanding avatar! Of course, all of Warren's creations are outstanding.

Today I got another email on my Rosie avatar. I've gotten many such emails.

Nanc,
When are you going to get an avatar? A conspicuous avatar makes it easy for comments to be quickly found on a Blogspot site.

Warren said...

In defense, let me say... I have no defense.

It was a put up job!

(Nanc asked me to and I put it up.)

Aww Jezzz, this is too much! The Word Verification is lenny. That's what my mom called me when I was in trouble.

nanc said...

aow - check the archives if fern has the roots to leave them up - it was about the time mbc shut the doors on us orphans and fern was feeling down and was just shy of whining about a song he wrote for devo - they didn't buy it, but instead recorded the song with different words and fern's been put out ever since. that's when i named him "fern". apparently i'm the only one he feels comfortable with calling him that, but you, aow (i pronounce you "OW") and warren (who i'm still working on a nancname) may call him fern with my wholehearted approval, but and that's a big butt - any of you others call him fern and you'll answer to me! or not. not to be contrary.

nanc said...

uhm, fern - what do you think of my custom avatar warren's been working on - it's a contrary - can you believe that?

and, btw, when you leave me unattended in the care of warren, great things happen! i'm conjuring up a madze avatar as we speak...shhh...

Warren said...

Nanc, In your case its also an understatement.

...It must be a sign!

The word verification is off!

nanc said...

well, he must have turned it off just for you, warren - nanc doesn't get those sorts of concessions.

warren said,

"Nanc, In your case its also an understatement."

nanc says,

"what on earth does he mean by that, fern?"

well, here i am - off to the word verification police, again.

nanc said...

p.s. - if y'all want to know - i'm the only person who fern has censored! that's right - and what did he do? oh, he turned around and said the same things i said, but in other words - yeah - it was the same, but different - now, who's the contrary one, huh, warren?

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

I don't know the fern story. But the Devo-fern is twisted wicked, and from me that's high praise.

Freedomnow said...

Hey Warren,

Who said you were in trouble? Beak will put out a contract on anyone who says so.

Apparently Nanc is the master of telling stories about how she came up with the nickname of Fern without actually saying how she came up with it.

Simply amazing. She is holding out for her book deal...

Warren said...

Freedom Now,
No doubt about it, Beak is my best buddy on the web. I think he felt sorry for me after his brother, (the Rav), chewed me out.

But seriously, how can I take offense at a guy with a honker so big that his brother named a blog after it. ;^)

The trouble thing, well... I let Nanc talk me into it. That can't be good.

LOL

nanc said...

buttkissers!

nanc said...

tomorrow fern - you and me...you and me...take off the gloves...wait, ferns can't wear gloves!

nanc said...

you okay, fern? perhaps a little spritz of mineral water will perk you up!

F.B. Jones said...

I always pictured a birds nest fern.

nanc said...

bwaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh - a bird's nest fern!

O.T. - fern, a.i. posted this little ditty at madze's. actually it's quite long, but thought you'd appreciate it:

don't get angry - just be glad you woke up in time.

beakerkin said...

I do not know if this quite does it. I pictured this avater to be more spirited.

The Beaker the pet name of my younger brother. He looked like the familiar muppet. His major complaint was that everywhere he went he was known as my brother. In
tribute to my younger brother I salute him with a tribute as my pen name.

My own industry name is not printable so I used my brothers.

Freedomnow said...

Thanks for the story. I think the likelihood of Islamic victories on the scale mentioned in the story is very small, because the stronger Islamists get the more united the world will become.

Both China & Russia view Islamists as a serious threat because of the insurgencies in their own countries.

Just like the alliance between Stalin and Churchill/Roosevelt, we will unite to kick their asses.

(no offense to Beak who doesnt use that kind of language.)

American Crusader said...

nice fern.

nanc said...

oh, but by all means offend nanc!

Freedomnow said...

Nanc you are encouragable (no I didnt misspell the dang word).

nanc said...

do you mean incorrigible? because i'm not so easily encouraged - take it back!

are you keeping the avatar?

nanc said...

please just wear it around for a day or six and see what people think! they'll tell you if it makes your butt look big...

Always On Watch said...

Found it! Here is the fern story, with a picture. Explains the avatar!

nanc said...

thank you aow! you are wondy! i nearly forgot all the instances, but they're coming back to me now...

nanc said...

p.s. fern must be off crying in a courvoissior...(sp?)

nanc said...

please put on your best fern and happen on over to:

http://alwaysonwatch.blogspot.com/

it's a party.

nanc said...

okay - fine, fern - cut off a frond to spite your roots! see if i care! you'll be sorry as i go off to work tomorrow - or not! never let the sun go down on your anger.

say goodnight gracie.

Freedomnow said...

Ahhhh...a blast from the past...

Nanc said, "freedomnow = frn - you have now become fern to me!!! it's you - a low dwelling forest plant which needs little light and quite possibly no care whatsoever."

Sometimes the Nanc-machine is just unstoppable.

nanc said...

oh, stop your blubbering!
