Very funny! I wonder what starts people off on this sort of virtual flash-mobbing? Like the ads for girly pens on Amazon.

I've no idea, Lois, but the people at Text Publishing were enjoying it when I looked at their Twitter feed last night.

I've just read the latest additions and I couldn't resist so I've added my own comment--"White Rabbit"

And a bit later..."Alice"...'-}}

LOL, I like them, Terrie. How are you coping with all the Australian references?

BTW, thongs in this context are what you lot call flip flops...

When I was little we called them "thongs"too -that was before "thongs" came to mean something completely different.

Fairly well I think...thanks to you...'-}}

Yes...we (I) used to call them thongs too although now I guess my first thought would be the underwear kind...'-}

I love the whole shiela/mailbox/wolf/puppy set of comments...there is quite an interesting (grotesque?) story developing there...

It's very exciting because today I finally learned what a UK-speak kitchen "dresser" is! I've seen references in books to "dressers" in kitchens which I always have found very...odd--here in the US, a "dresser" is something one puts in a bedroom to hold clothing. Today I was watching a little bit of the UK-based Antiques Roadshow (we also have it here in the US but it's done a bit differently) on public television and one of the items was the famous "dresser". I always figured that whatever they were had drawers but today I realized it's what here in the US would be called a "breakfront" or something like that--it's not an item of furniture my family ever had so I'm going by what I'd heard them called by other people.

Anyway...one language mystery solved...'-}}

PS...my first attempt at posting on the job ad page didn't take so I did a little editing and then posted again only to discover, my first attempt did take...oh well...'-}}
