National Fig Week

Postby indigo_jones » Wed Nov 02, 2005 1:36 pm

From an e-mail I received today:

CHEW ON THIS:
This week is National Fig Week. Figs are filling, high in fiber and they taste great!

:shock:
:drool:

I've been so good, trying to restrain myself, but now I'm being told to nibble on him!

*L* Well, if we're being told to nibble, how can we not? :D
National Fig Week, hehe, do they have a National Week for everything? National Cereal Day? National T-shirt Week?
We should start an International Flight of the Conchords Appreciation Week. :wink: How would one go about submitting such a request? Who would you submit it too?

See? We were nibbling on Bret back in 2005. It's amazing that there's anything but his head left. ;)

See? Sometimes the spammers dredge up some really great stuff like this! I love it! You guys really were noshing on Mr. McKenzie way back when. He's a bit like the loaves and fushes, isn't he? We just keep nibbling, but he just carries on. The Amazing Replenishing Bret!

Thanks for that... :wink: But I may have to turn on my computer when I get home and save that pic... And now I'm totally craving fig newtons... I wonder if there's any in the vending machines...

I would also like to add that the sofa that Bret is sitting on in that picture is a sin against upholstery everywhere.

But the person sitting on it is very much to my taste. As are the figgy biscuits he's modelling.

yes, that sofa is distracting. Also behind Bret I notice something in the same fabric as the sofa but cannot decide whether it's a massive cushion, or someone wearing a jumper made with said fabric. :hrm:
Equally criminal of course

If he gets tired of the music thing, he should consider becoming a magician. He wouldn't even have to be a good one -- we'd be too distracted by his curls and his nose and his big brown eyes to pay much attention to his slight of hand.

It looks a bit like a blanket... You know, like when you get up and just roll the blanket into a ball and leave it on the back of the couch for someone else to fold. My sister does that to me all the time... :roll: But it is visually offensive...

Hmmm... I dunno... Have you never watched him play guitar? His hands can be quite distracting. :love: :thud:

True. There's that one photo of his arm fish and fish fingers ... :drool:

That's the one I was thinking of. :wink: I had it as a wallpaper on my old phone... Uber distracting... :lol:
