Tin's a Teen!

I love that you can't tell ages on the internet. Also you and Eldo were around a couple years ago, and we (at least I) still didn't know. Precocious whippersnappers. I think Odo's 12 and faking it.

Or since Odo hasn't appeared, I should say Sir Orwell McOdo. Don't want to get smacked.

I'm not sure Amarie I can provide a suitable translation- what he said was 'What the hell are they when the cows are at home?' But that doesn't really convey the meaning- suffice to say its a phrase used by certain, older generations-OUCH- What was that for Paw?

I was wondering if it could mean 'cows are at home'. I am getting better at this! I still don't understand the question. Laughing I am guessing is just means that feelings are useless in daily life.

Hm, now Paw used the nampy-pampy word too... what happens then I wonder? Shrugging
I wonder solely for anthropological reasons, not because I think Paw needs a good smack.

Um... come to think of it, I don't think I am brave enough to venture into that territory... There are things in life that make even the bravest Vikings shiver. One is Helheim and the other I believe is to face Paw Tyrant.

On the old forum ages weren't visible unless you looked at someone's profile page. I still remember when Durin found out my age. I think I was 15 at the time (I like to think I've grown up marginally since then). lol!

Does 'marginally' mean you've only grown up on the 'extremities' Eldo, but not 'ínternally'? Very Happy

Um, as to Odo being twelve --- is that in 'dog' years, or is someone insulting someone? Suspect (I suspect he'd be cross about that, you know, except he's distracted by a financial problem. Indeed, he's busy transferring certain undisclosed funds between undisclosed off shore acounts because of a missing necklace that isn't missing anymore, but which has been paid for anyhow with his Forumshire Gold Credit Card. My gawd, the looks he's been giving me... pale ).

Oh Petty, I'm beginning to doubt Paw's methods... Look how you turned out. Shocked

I'd call it a complement, being Odo (or Orwell for that matter) at age 12 is a far greater achievement than T. S. Elliot writing Prufrock at age 22.

Hmm... be that as it may, things continue to go from bad to worse. I cooked some lovely lamb chops and some exquisite homegrown sweet corn and potatoes, with some more than passable baby peas from the shop - and my teenager didn't eat any of it except one chop-ruining bite out of a chop. He's off down the shops to eat crap... crap, I say... It's all over, I can't cope anymore... Mad

That will pass too. Breath iiiiiiiiiin, breathe ooooooooout. Repeat for 5 to 10 years.

There's something going on with the taste buds as well as the brain at that age.

I could, of course, kill him. You know, exert my God Given rights like the Patriarchs. Very Happy

Still, passing up the home cooked pork and garden veggies would unhinge anyone. Orwell, send an address, I sense an opening at the table and am on my way.

Excellent, I need soneone to clean his roo,. Do you clean your room, Halfwise? Also, there's my vegies to be grown. Oh and a thousand other tasks a replacement teenager should in all conscious do for his Father. When will you be here, new Son? Very Happy

I'll have to break the news gently to Halfwise then about the scarcity of carrots for eating at my house despite the obvious plenitude in my garden. I suspect he'd be the kind of hobbit who is very fond of carrots, not some vegie despising teenager from Harbottle! Mad

Mmm....I wonder what the structural properties of carrots are once they've been frozen for transport overseas then thawed. Plant Morphology is not something I'm an expert in by any means. Shrugging

I wasn't planning on rethawing them. They'll retain dimensional stability better if they're already frozen.

Excellent. cheers If you like, I'll source some refrigerators, though I'm by no means a refrigeration expert. Shrugging

Hey, so long as there's no forms to fill out, no strangely irrelevant questions that MUST be answered in a space the size of pinky, no quarterly progress reports on the project for which no funding has yet arrived, etc etc.....so long as there's none of THAT - I'll do anything for peanuts and feel I've got the best side of the bargain.

These teenagers are such suckers, what with letting themselves grow into adulthood and whatnot.
