He's Baaaack

Is it me or has it been ages since the Roaming Gnome made an appearance on our TV sets? The last time I remember seeing him, he was expounding the virtues of a ghastly, stinky piece of cheese.

Sigh.

A man after my own heart.

He likes cheese.

He likes to travel.

He is British.

True, he may be shorter than what I have been attracted to in the past, but I have grown particularily fond of vast amounts of facial hair of late.

Anyone know where I can write him?

hey bea, sorry i've been off-line for a few days but i do have some comments to share....
1. vent - hahahahaha
2. does anyone understand why lornstar is still with us? does he not resemble that really annoying party guest that no one invited that doesn't seem to want to leave? i'm pretty sure that if i was back at the cc in the good ole days that i would push him down the stairs.
3. corn - ya, what the $#@!? i have a horrible vivid memory of having to clean corn/southern comfort out of the backseat of a friends car in high school one morning with a fairly severe hangover - nasty, nasty, nasty... not enjoying that memory right now.
4. sorry, not sure where the gnome is at but i'm heading to the south pacific next week so i'll keep an eye out for him.

That pointy hat could be fun, too...

hey WEE ... the lornstar was an INVITED guest into this party of yours... to bring a little balance into this one-sided world.. you see..Wee.. usually i am the one throwing the parties and entertaining the masses.. parties that in the past you may have not been invited to and i humbly apoligize for my oversight.. but you are hating on the player.. when you should be hating on the game.. and what kind of violent party host are you that you would want to throw me down a flight of stairs?? that is simply not called for! but then again .. Wee is another word for PEE.. as in "I have to take a wee.".. maybe you should be hanging out with one of these Roaming Gnomes.. at least they won't talk back to you! :)

I think I saw him and 25 of his brothers in the walmart garden section the other day...

lornstar, you're pretty funny but i imagine the last guy i threw down a flight of stairs also had a keen sense of humour.

Nic said...

FYI lornstar, you shouldn't have to explain yourself when you attempting to insult someone, it just doesnt work...

Wee - I am so there for the stair push, even if I am new.

luckily i am a lover not a fighter.. so let's all get naked and fall down the stairs together.. what do you say?

Now, now ladies...

Mr. Star is correct in that he was an invited guest. I had thought that a man's opinion would always appreciated on this little slice of my life. Sadly, I had the impression when I met him that he did not have it out for me... or my friends as would now seem to be the case.

What can I say... when I am wrong, I am like, so completely wrong. But thanks for coming to my (and womankind's) defence... t'is awfully appreciated.

Re: roaming gnome... which is what this post was actually about. Wee... if you see him in the SP (lucky beeyatch)... make sure you give him my number.

Bea Out

i don't have it out for you Bea.. you know that.. i am just always prompted by outside sources to make a comment.. you are still my favourite source of brightness in the darkness that seeks to envelop us xoxoxo

Last time I saw the gnome he was on the Amazing Race....maybe he has hit the big time now!

I agree, the pointy hat could be useful!
