Edward Gorey

29 June 2005

I’d never heard of him before I paid a visit to Ten Miles today. Some great links there, including this quiz:
You will sink in a mire. You like to think you’re
normal, but deep down you really just want to
strip off your clothes and roll around in
chicken fat.

What horrible Edward Gorey Death will you die?

In other news, can anyone tell me why when I right click on a blockquote in IE it won’t give me the properties like it does in Firefox? I mean I go to the bother of sticking in sources and everything, for those of you curious enough to actually bother your arses right-clicking, but if IE doesn’t do it (Or do I need to change my title to something else for IE to pick up on it), how many people never know that you can do this, also, will this sentence never end, I’m beginning to run short of oxygen, still at least there are plenty of commas eh, means you can have a quick gasp doesn’t it? ?

    I'm Quentin too. Maybe it's the library yoke.

    Re the other thang – I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Re : the other thing,
    Okay, go to a quote somewhere on this site. One of the letter extracts on the rugby post for example. Now right-click and go to properties. What comes up? Stuff about the site right?

    Well when I do it I with Firefox get the url and the title info I stuck in, like the letter writer's name, the source and the date. Which is a lot better than nothing if you ask me.

    You're very funny, Fence.
    Sorry, I'm ill, my defenses are down, it just slipped out.
    I had no idea what you were talking about either, but I use Firefox

    "Funny how? Funny like a clown? I amuse you? I make you laugh? I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? How the fuck am I funny? What the fuck is so funny about me?"


  5. NineMoons says:

    It says the type of document is and has the URL – c'est tout.

    And yes, I must agree that you are funny like a clown.

    However, you must bear in mind I suffer from mild <a href="http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=+coulrophobia">coulrophobia , so I'm not necessarily saying you amuse me…

    Thanks for that link fmk, I just tidied up the link because it was messing with the template :)

    I did like this quote "I feel that I am doing the minimum amount of damage to other possibilities that may take place in a reader's head," said Gorey, describing his preference for concealing rather than revealing, a lesson in part learned from classic silent films,

  8. Fence says:

    NM, did you mean to make that a link? Cos there weren't no url, so I stuck one in to dictionary.com. Didn't know what coulrophobia was, but I do know you suffer from it .

  9. LiVEwiRe says:

    You are so lucky fence… I'm going to be sucked dry by leeches. _sigh_

  10. Fence says:

    Liverwire, is slowly suffocating in a mire better than leeches? Course the bit I'm worried about is the "rolling in chicken fat" …

  11. NineMoons says:

    Dammit, I pasted that it perfectly. I'm going to blame that one on IE…
    The link was to the I hate Clowns website. That being what coulrophobia is.

  12. Fence says:

    I know what it is now, I looked it up didn't I? the link now just points to the dictionary.com definition

  13. NineMoons says:

    What's wrong with directing people to ihateclowns.com? It's a website performing an extremely valuable public service.

  14. Fence says:

    Nuffink. But you didn't do tha' did ya? All I got was a two a tags, not details.

    So here you go: Ihateclowns.com Arigh'?

  15. NineMoons says:

    Yes, I'm alrigh'. How are you?
