zugzwang


Anajo, how delicious, my tongue is hanging out :)

Thanks to you and Wiki I have learned a glorious new word and now know what zugzwang actually means, but shall use it instead to replace the rude words I use when driving, far more appropriate and seemly, much obliged!

knickerbocker

Hi Gumtree,

Do you mean to refer to a common last name of some New Yorkers of Dutch ancestry, or those unusual pants, those kind of capri shorts that some people in some countries wear/wore ?

I have to confess that this was what I actually had in mind
at the time, after viewing your glorious gateau -

Had no idea that Knickerbocker was an actual surname and thus got sidetracked into google to read their family researches etc
Certainly appreciate the costume which is the more usual association :)
connotations of Irish leprechaun there ?

Thank you for both Offenbach's - they were each great to listen to and taught me that the most well known can- can music originated from that composer. So I tried to see if I could still do the splits - well, we won't go there :roll:

:lol:
I'm sitting here actually laughing out loud at this ridiculous stream-of-consciousness line of responses.

Perhaps a Banana Split would be the kind of split that we might be more interested in at the moment and which is somewhat appropriate to the general direction that this thread seems to be taking.

hmmm... once again, Gumtree, re gallimaufry, I'm not sure if you're referring to the stew, or a hodgepodge. But considering what your mind seems to be focused on these days, I'm gonna place my bets on the notion that you were thinking about this ragout made up of a medley of delicious ingredients. And not one to want to interrupt the pleasure of your appetite, may I offer up...

Bouillabaisse

Anajo, you have inferred that I have implied an undue and overweening interest in comestibles, notwithstanding the fact that after my explicit encouragement to partake in healthy and vigorous exercise, you could not restrain yourself from reverting to discussions of "Banana Splits" (oh joy) and "Bouillabaisse" (Oh those Mediterranean Nights sitting in an outdoor cafe with the sea breezes etc etc ).........


I am lost for words.


May I perhaps suggest, but assuredly with great respect, you turn your mind to pots and kettles (black)?

cauldron



PS Are you and I the only ones left on this planet?? Come in DSW, Tony, Kon Freak, Arrow, Libra , Tommy ALL IS FORGIVEN say you are out there :mrgreen:
