"I didn't even know we had a smiley - toffeeapple" [Dmitri]

Well, I was one of the people who agitated for having it. Apples come up occasionally in conversation, so it's handy to have it. The smiley - toffeeapple doesn't fall very far from the smiley - xmastree. An smiley - toffeeapple a day keeps the smiley - doctor away. You're the smiley - toffeeapple of my eye. It's as American as smiley - toffeeapple pie. William Tell shot an arrow through an smiley - toffeeapple that was on his son's head. God didn't make little green smiley - toffeeapplesmiley - toffeeapple, it don't rain in Indianapolis in the Summertime....smiley - musicalnote

Don't spoil the image of Guillaume Tell putting a toffee apple on his son's head.

At least it wouldn't fall off.

To be honest, I didn't know there was an smiley - apple smiley. I still prefer the smiley - toffeeapple because it's redder and looks more delicious. smiley - drool

Reminds me of the birthday card someone sent the rather shaggy Neil Gaiman:

Someone suggested that I read one of Gaiman's books -- "Good Omens." I enjoyed it. smiley - smiley I wanted to see if it was similar to "The Infernals," another book that I liked. It turned out to be quite different. Mrs. Abernathy was a much nastier piece of work than Hastur and Crowley. smiley - yikes

I'm sorry, this seems to be a general problem. Lulu sent me an email this evening that there is a problem with some file or other that I think was uploaded to my computer while creating the calendar.

I'm sorry to say this but at the moment it doesn't seem to work. smiley - sadface I'm trying to sort it out as soon as possible, which will probably be tomorrow after work.
