It seems this forum has grown even more exciting recently with the addition of "horseNbuggy news". Morgan le Fay

I am now of the opinion that I am afflicted with Multiple Personality Disorder, so insidious has it become that I inclined to add “nowhere” as a suffix to every name I see!“Been there” makes a good point, I have hijacked virtually every thread, so I'm am starting a new one. Sorry 'bout that BT, it was brought on by my zeal to hunt down that scoundrel, that inglorious bastard know as “Eagles Fan”, and I found his tell-tale fingerprints everywhere I looked,“I'm from Philly, you people suck.” He has run rough shod over this board for pret-near three years, as a gentleman I felt it my responsibility to give this cad an old-fashioned country horsewhipping, with my quill of course.
Ms. Le Fay, to refer to the Twilight Zone as just “that old TV show” is an affront to both Rod Serling and his biggest fan “rodserling2nowhere”, why, I can hardly wait for Labor day and Memorial Day when the Scifi channel has Twilight Zone marathons. I actually have that song as one of my ring tones! Was that also a coincidence? Did you find my bio somewhere, is this some sort of hoax? Perhaps my old High School girlfriend has come back to haunt me, Annabel? Or... could it be that you are actually “Eagles Fan” and any minute you're going to scream “hey douche bag, you've been punk'd!”
Here is a link to a truly great episode, a haggard old lady that is terrified of dying and has spent her life hiding from that beast, the Grim Reaper. But when he comes, spoiler alert! Watch it in full screen, incredible, 1962!

When I typed in Rod Serling quotes I copied and pasted “A demension not only of sight and sound but of mind.”“Demension”, this cannot stand, this will not stand!

Dear Edgar Allan,

I too am concerned that you may be suffering from MPD (by the way, that means multiple personality disorder, not Morgantown Pennsylvania dentistry). In fact, I am beginning to question if there is anyone else posting on Topix other than you and I. You seem so familiar, like someone I have had many conversations with before. Is it possible we have previously conversed in some ancient far-away land? Possibly it was in that mysterious kingdom known as Pennsyltucky?

Poor Edgar, I was reading the "Yooson Kim Dentist" thread where "bridge2nowhere" (that is you in case you are confused or have forgotten) was saying most people don't know or care who Edgar Allan was. Kind sir, may never such a thing be found true! My first thought was, "O God! can I not save one from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?" It was at that very moment that I knew it must have been that tomfoolery hand of fate that guided me to this forum.

Now Edgar, that was indeed an enjoyable episode of "Twilight Zone" and it was most kind of you to provide that wonderful link. And to think, we only have a couple more weeks until the Memorial Day marathon! But Edgar, you wound me with your unfounded suspicions that I am that villain known as "Eagles Fan". May it never be said that Morgan Le Fay would utter such vile obscenities as "you've been punk'd".

Edgar, I ask myself, are these strange occurrences merely coincidence or did someone sneakily whisper these words of Shakespeare's,

"Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,--
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."

Could this be the explanation for these peculiar coincidences? I must admit, I do wonder could you, Edgar Allan, actually be Eagles Fan? Could Eagles Fan be just one more of your many aliases and you are only pretending to argue with yourself? Could you be one of my cruel and heartless antagonizers from another forum only waiting to jab a knife into my back as you do a little Irish dance and giggle with gleeful abandon while you twist that rusty blade of agony? Was I lured here by a trail of tiny bread crumbs only to be skewered and slashed by the quill of death? I must admit, these questions weigh heavily upon my mind on this fine day.

Sincerely,
Morgan Le Fay

P.S. I'm really not "Eagles Fan" but I think you already know that.

Ms. Le Fay
What an incredible twist of fate, this thread is aptly named. When you first appeared I suggested that people would think I created you to compliment myself, and now you think I have created them! Can we get some Twilight Zone music in here asap. I can assure you we met entirely by accident, I have always considered it fate. I write in word document, then paste in Topix, they usually screw it up, so I will often post in another board to see what it looks like. The other night as horseNbuggy I reviewed edgarallan, it took me four tries in the lost cat forum in Morristown TN to get it right. Notice the date.

Here I am in Hodgeville KY.

Edgar Allan is actually in an Arabic forum, unfortunately it's so far back in my history I can't find it, it is so funny to see him among all those Arabic words, I can only imagine what they were thinking. Then one soft spring morn', after writing an ode to my friend “Eagles fan”, I found a most obscure thread, a bunch of people complaining about birds in their yard for God's sake! Your response was immediate and priceless, like “what in the world just landed here, James Bond, Green Acres, Houdini, Amish, Daniel Webster? Who, what, are you kidding me!” Talk about an episode of Twilight Zone. You even compare me to Dickens, God bless you, God bless us everyone! And then to think that you would seek me out just to compliment me is truly flattering, we have had many a bouts of witty repartee since then, I consider you a friend and a Kindred spirit.
You misunderstood my last post, I don't use smiley faces or lol's, I am often misinterpreted, but you know I am always satirical. I am chastising you for being so cavalier about Twilight Zone while I am also incredulous at how much we have in common. You once told me that you have a sense of humor, but only at your expense, I may have overstepped those bounds. Please read it again, and put an lol at the end of each sentence, it was written in good humor. And the “High School girlfriend” was a Poe reference;

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

Bridge2nowhere,

I did not misunderstand your last post at all. You amused me with your chastisement of my cavalier attitude concerning that wonderful masterpiece we know as Twilight Zone. As if I would consider Twilight Zone just any old show. Ha! I say. Mr. Sterling's creation of that series was pure genius. Why, of course I knew you were being satirical and letting your wonderful sense of humor shine forth. I too usually write with a bit of satire and humor. Even with my usage of LOLs and smileys I am often mistaken as being completely serious or as intending some manner of slight or insult. So be forwarned dear friend, may you never mistake my ramblings as being some vile slap in the face bout of anger.

I'm not sure "incredible twist of fate" can begin to adequately describe these strange events which are transpiring as of late. I do see your postings on the Morristown TN (BTW, I find MOrristown such a peculiar place) and Hodgenville KY forums. Not to drift too far off subject, but I find there has been a terrible outbreak of lost cats lately. It seems at least one or more people on every forum has lost a cat. Anyway, that most clever review you wrote as horseNbuggy was simply fantastic! I find it very amusing, whenever and wherever you post your humerous articles it seems to fairly well put a halt to the conversation. I enjoy visualizing the dropped jaws that must result from your random practice posts LOL!

I caught your reference to Annabel in your last post also. It took me about 90 seconds, I was thinking Annabel? Annabel? Where have I heard that name? And then it dawned on me and I thought, is there no end to the wit and humor of this Edgar Allan character? Annabel Lee is one of my favorite poems. Of course all of Edgar's poems are favorites. Your inclusion of the Annabel reference was the inspiration for my inclusion of a couple lines from one of Poe's poems in the second paragraph of my previous post. They were lines from A Dream Within A Dream. Here is a longer excerpt:

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand --
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep -- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

I am thankful for whatever peculiar event landed you on that odd blackbird thread on that fateful day LOL! I too consider you a friend and kindred spirit.

Kindest Regards,
Morgan le Fay

P.S. What is this about you abandoning the Jasmine and Tyrone characters? I like Jasmine and Tyrone. LOL I was even hoping they might consider a move into my neighborhood.

Jasmine and Tyrone are dead to me!LOL “Sayonara suckers”,“Hasta la vista baby!” You have to give them credit though, they were very poignant and insightful. Black birds, black cats, black folk, black magic!

When edgarallan posted in the Arabic forum, their jaws may have dropped but it didn't slow them down one bit. When I created horseNbuggy I was cropping the picture and I wanted to see what it looked like so I posted in a “Top news story”, not my best writing but their reaction is kinda funny, I went back a week later to see what they wrote, and if I ever find the guy that judged it clueless, he's gonna' wish he was in China. Poor horseNbuggy, he only has eleven posts and six of them were trial runs.

I think I will miss Jasmine and Tyrone.

I really do like the horseNbuggy profile picture. I don't get to see those Amish buggies too very often, but I always enjoy it when I do. I love horses and it's always a real pleasure to see them pulling those pretty black buggies. This is too sad, but there was a little 6-year-old Amish girl drowned in Kentucky over the weekend. The news site showed a photo of her, she was so cute and pretty :(

Anyway, I think horseNbuggy has been doing a great job with the reviews. Those are really amusing. Your new play on the other thread is quite good too.

I've never written a review before but your new play inspired me to attempt a bit of a humorous one LOL! I will post it below instead of on the other thread since I only came here to compliment your writing and not to disrupt all the conversations. Hopefully your friend "Eagles fan" will not be offended :)

Gorgeous! Expansive! A poignant and achingly beautiful portrait of life in small town America. The playwright has a beautiful control of words and a deep understanding of human nature. The dialogue is like music, and the staging is choreographed with the intricacies of a barn dance. Gentlemen, swing your partners and doe-si-doe!

Maybe I should have called this the “mushy, mushy, kissy, kissy” thread, I can almost see people sticking their finger down their throat as we talk.LOL!!! But thanks for your kind words. Glad you like the “reviews”, I noticed you often use an expression “another time, another place”, you were obviously bitten by the nostalgia bug as was I, in fact you use it in your review of Edgars dental nightmare.
The movie “Goodfellas” is one of my all time favorites, it's a true story about a wishy-washy mob wannabe named Henry Hill that turns states evidence. He was involved with the Gambino crime family in NY. He befriends a guy named “Tommy” played by Joe Pesci, a brutal mobster that would just as soon kill you as look at you, one night at a club, just for fun he acts as though he is violently offended when Henry calls him “funny.” Remember, these guys were real murders, they all have guns on them along with very short fuses, with friends like these who needs enemies? This has lots of F-bombs, so if that offends you do not click on the link. After you watch it, re-read my play using the the f word rather than my f' or f'ing, you will think Joe Pesci is really angry a “Eagles Fan.”

I'm sorry, I really don't understand very much of your last post. I would hope people reading this thread would see it as satirical, humorous, or some kind of friendly banter. I don't know, maybe the poetry would be considered mushy?

I really don't know what you mean when you say I use the expression "another time, another place." I don't know if I've ever used that expression or not. If I have, I can't recall doing so. Neither did I write a review of "Edgars dental nightmare" as you say.

I really am sorry if I've made anyone mad or offended them somehow. I don't know anyone on this forum and I really did just post here to compliment your writing. I wasn't intending to offend you or anything.

Maybe you think I'm someone else on this forum? Maybe you are only pretending to think I'm someone else? Actually, I've been accused of being other people on Topix before. I'm sorry, but I really don't want to go through that again.

I took Morgan “le Fay” and Annabel “Lee” and made a reviewer for horseNbuggy news named “Lee Fay”, I have read some older posts in your forum and run across the expression “another time, another place” an allusion to days gone by. You are the “truth girl” I assume? And it seems like you and I are always complimenting each other, on this board and on yours, I was simply making a little self-consciousness joke about how complimentary we are to each other, you know, kinda' mushy. I have posted quite a bit of poetry myself, don't think it's mushy, I think you know that.

Hi Jasmine, it is very heartening to see you are still amongst the living. I hope Tyrone is well also. Ahhh I see, Lee Fay, I very much enjoyed reading the review written by that dastardly character LOL. I'm not sure I am capable of picking a favorite reviewer, Claude Hopper is really good. I can't remember who it was that wrote "nom de plume" but I find myself saying that often now. I think that will be a big part of my conversation in the future. When people ask me questions or start talking to me when I'm not in a good mood, I think I will point at them and say "nom de plume!- nom de plume!" repeatedly.

Jasmine, I think there is a good chance that many people are retching over all this complimentary talk that is going on. We aren't exactly exhibiting normal Topix behavior, they probably find us quite shocking and peculiar. I think this entire forum is wonderful, disturbing, but wonderfully disturbing! I think I will go back over it for a second reading soon LOL!

By the way, has anyone heard how Mr. Bridge is doing? I read elsewhere the most sad and perturbing news that he may have nearly expired a few eventides ago.

Weep no more Mr. Bridge,
oh weep no more today.
We will sing one song for the old Penntucky home,
for the old Penntucky home far away.

If Mr. Bridge is still lucid maybe someone can play this for him. It could very likely put an end to his misery.

I have made a complete recovery due in large part to that “Old Kentucky” magic. How funny is it that there is a girl from Kentucky in the “I hate Pennsyltucky” forum? Coincidence, fate or the hand of Rod! Pa. has the largest rural population in the country, hard to believe with all our large cities and towns, a real split during political season, in fact during that time there is an old expression here,“Pa. is made-up of three major areas, Steelers country, Eagles country and Kentucky.” I live well north of Morgantown, just miles from The Daniel Boone homestead, a small state park that has renovated the home he was born in, I noticed you live right next to Daniel Boone Nation Forest. I went to High School in Charleston WV and played ball for a year and a half at Marshall University, no I'm not Chad Pennington or Randy Moss, in fact I never even suited up for a real game. I did play in a number of exhibitions, pre-season and JV games mostly in Kentucky. LOL Where art thou Rod! When I posted in your forum I was using bridge, no Raven in sight and yet I picked a black bird thread that had a person with a Raven in their avatar. Coincidence or Freudian or an act of Rod!

Ms. Jasmine,

It is as plain as the nose on my face to see that Tyrone is a lucky man to have a woman like you. Goodness gracious Jasmine, I hope he appreciates you for the ray of sunshine you are! You are exactly right about them there men gettin' all persnikety actin' as soon as they think you be impressed by anything they do. I now seem to recall my own dear Mum giving me the same advice many years ago. Oh how I lament the folly of my ways! Well I do declare, my only excuse is that my good senses must have been overwhelmed by Mr. Nowhere's mastery of words and usage of punctuation.

Thank you very much for your exceedingly kind words concerning my feeble attempt at review writing. I ruminated upon using the nom de plume (oh how I love that word, or is that a phrase?) "Neva Moore" instead of "Blackie Byrd". I wasn't sure how well received "Neva Moore" would be by the "nevermore" character so I went with the aforementioned choice. I can only hope Mr. Eagles Fan will find it in the deepest recesses of his heart to forgive me if I have insulted his delicate sensibilties. I look forward to conversating with you again in the future Jasmine. Good night and God bless you too.

Kindest regards,

Mr Bridge,

I am most happy to hear you are no longer ailing and that you have now regained your good constitution. LOL Mr. Bridge, if you only knew the extent of some of the coincidences, your health might go into a decline so I will not mention them. I'm sure it was definitely the hand of something that landed this Kentuckian on the "Pennsyltucky" forum. The hand of what I've not decided yet, however, I'm presently convinced it was likely more than mere coincidence. Hand of Rod you say? Who might this mysterious Rod be?

Yes, I am near the Daniel Boone Forest, very near LOL! Odd, but as much as I've heard about good ole' Daniel, as often as I traipse the same trails that he blazed, it never occurred to me that his birthplace was in PA until now. So you're not Pennington or Moss, at least now I can mark them off my list of possible people who you might be. Possibly you still enjoy football, maybe you are a Steelers fan, or (gasp) Eagles fan? I think you must often write in some form or capacity. If not, I think you definitely should.

I notice you changed your avatar from the smiling toothy dog to a Rottweiler. Ahhh, dear Freud. How I wish he was still around. I think I would enjoy a nice long conversation with him.

We had a terrifying thunder storm here the night before last, a common occurrence 'round these parts since I live almost at the pinnacle of a large mountain that overlooks Morgantown. To step outside during one of these events, with lightening touching down everywhere is truly a fearful thing. Reminded me of a story I wanted to tell you about our most famous native son, writer John Updike, and about his parents and an old stone Inn just walking distance from me. Daniel Boone is actually from the town next door, don't want to slight our Kentucky brethren!
Wesley Updike was his fathers name, a neer'dowell from Reading that was courting an educated but failed writer/poet from the Morgantown area named Linda Grace Hoyer, they were not rich, this was the depression, but they had a farm with horses and were considered by most gentility. She was insistent that Mr. Updike settle down, quit his hard drinking and marry her. Their relationship grew ever more contentious until one day after returning from a visit with her, he and his best friend stopped at the Inn which I mentioned earlier to “whet their whistle.” A horrific thunderstorm blew in while they were inside drinking, Updikes best friend stepped outside to secure the horses and was struck dead by a bolt of lighting.
This event so impacted Mr. Updike that he instantly changed his ways, earning a teaching degree, marrying Miss. Hoyer, even moving her parents to their home so he could support them. John Updike was born in 1932 in Reading Pa. Thanks to his fathers educational discipline and the poet that resided in his mother heart, he graduated from Harvard University, spent a year at Oxford then became one of the most respected writers of the second half of the Twentieth Century.
One small caveat to this fairy tale ending. Maybe because teaching was not Wesley Updikes true passion, he was not very good at it, very often laid-off then rehired, often times working construction to earn money. In numerous autobiographies John Updike mentions the pain it caused him watching his father's inability to control his class, to hold court as it were. In fact, it made such an impression on him that he found it more interesting to write about men that were flawed and struggled with themselves rather than the typical heroic figure of most novels.

Mr. Bridge,

The top of a mountain is certainly not a preferable location to be during a thunderstorm. Of course in a valley near a rapidly rising creek is no good either. Hopefully the weather "'round those parts" has been calm and pleasant these last few days.

Mr. Bridge you have outdone yourself with this fine tale! This Updike family is fascinating! Why, they're probably more interesting to read about than Daniel Boone killing a bear or Davy Crocket trapping a mountain lion. Most assuredly, your fine verbiage and story telling capabilities have greatly enhanced the story.

It has taken me longer to respond than intended. Your story made me want to read more about Mr. Wesley Updike which led to my reading more about his son John Updike and his writings. Well, needless to say, it was like a long line of falling dominoes from there! I think it started while I was reading a synopisis on John Updike's novel "The Centaur" which led to me wanting to read more about Chiron, which led to reading about many other mythological characters as well as bacchic rites and Dionysian mysteries. Whew, it just kept going from there!

I am now under the impression that there must be a whole lotta talented and interesting people from your area of Pennsylvania. Maybe it is kind of like a Bermuda Triangle or Twilight Zone area except instead of danger or strange happenings, there is some type of odd concentration of talented people.

There was one thing I discovered during my wild reading frenzy which was truly disturbing to me. Over the years, while playing the board game Monopoly, I have always pronounced the name of that certain railroad as the "Reading (as in reading a book) Railroad." My oh my (rolling eyes and shaking head), now I'm thinking I should have been pronouncing it as the "Reading (as in the color red -ing) Railroad" all these many years. Oh just the thought of this major faux pas is nearly unbearable! My only comfort is thinking of how I once heard someone pronounce the word "hor d'oevres." I honestly don't know how they expect people to know these things!

Well Mr. Nowhere, since I have started writing this, a thunderstorm has suddenly popped up and is passing over. If anyone wants to strike up the Twilight Zone music, now would be as good a time as any. I'm doubting a lightning jolt would improve me very much, so 'til next time.

Best regards,

Ms. le Fay,
How can I live near a town that sounds like someones cheeks are blushing but is spelled like what you are doing as you look at your monitor. What a ridiculous language we have, present tense “I read”, past tense “I read”, exact same phrase! I'm sure you have noticed in my writing that it is these kind of words,“homonyms, homophones, homographs, and heteronyms” that give me fits, spell check doesn't catch them and apparently neither do I. Have you ever tried to teach a foreigner our language, impossible, even I would shake my head at how strange our words and rules were. How many words could mean the same thing and vice-versa.

It's very similar to your anecdote about “hors d'oeuvres”, that also has happened to me numerous times. I once had five or six words that I read before I ever heard them pronounced, and I would say them in the most embarrassing way. Can only remember one now, an-tith-esis or as I would say; anti-thesis. How many times I said that,“anti-thesis” I'm against your thesis, your proposition or idea, I still cringe. But do you know that in the back of my mind I still like the word anti-thesis better, seems more direct, more straight-forward.

Same goes for the name of this thread, I actually like de-mension much better than di-mension. Rod Serling had such a weird demented look on his face during his introductions, and I don't think I have ever seen a picture of that poor, wretched Mr. Poe that doesn't bring to mind the word demented. Demon, demented, demension, I like it, I like a lot, in fact dimension now seems strange. I think Mr. Serling would approve.

I just proof-read (or is it read) this post and this strange bird definitely belongs in this thread! I'll try to come up with something more interesting next time.

Mr. Bridge,

Harumph! "Come up with something more interesting next time," said Mr. Nowhere Man. As Ms. le Fay read these words a look of horror and stupification came upon her most endearing face. Whatever does this here feller mean, she thought, as she absentmindedly took a sip of too hot coffee and let out a blood curdling yowl followed by a string of expletives that would cause the most jaded sailor to blush like a young school girl. As Ms. le Fay inwardly cringed and offered up a silent prayer that none of the neighbors had heard her vile outburst, she thought to herself, Mr. Nowhere Man mustn't realize his writing is more entertaining than two cats that have been slung over a tree limb with their tails tied together.

LOL, I agree with you good sir, the English language is enough to cause a sane person to be hurled headlong into the farthest nether regions of Bedlam!

Mr. Bridge, at the risk of contributing to the cause of you once again descending upon the good citizens of Pennsylvania like a strutting peacock or some puffed up prancin' popinjay, I must say, all your writing skills are quite impressive. I have not noticed, but even if you do have difficulties with “homonyms, homophones, homographs, and heteronyms” your writing abilities remain right up there amongst the finest names of those who have ever put pen-n-ink to paper. Besides, if'n writers set it all down perfectly upon the first try, there would be no need for copy editors. That, my dear man, would certainly be a bedevilment and vexatious plague to practitioners of that noble profession.

This Morgantown Forum was already interesting, but I'm tellin' you here and now, that there horseNbuggy news is somethin' else! That News Hound thread is most interesting. Why, I don't even know where them places are; can't even rightly pronounce half the names of them there towns-n-ships. Yet, due to horseNbuggy's fine commentaries, I find myself eyeing them there news stories like a hungry lumberjack would eye a big bait of chitlins and hog jowls.

Now to top it all off, JasmineNowhere has made an impressive debut on the site. Well I pawn my honor, if that Jasmine ain't a womern to be reckoned with! Ms. Jasmine is a shining example of an independent minded lady who ain't gonna take nuttin' off nobody. Such a strong will, yet she demonstrates a genteel and nurturing soul. She will likely be an inspiration to women everywhere.

I notice you referred to yourself as "Nowhere Man" in your last post. Since that is a song title by the Beatles, and since I also recollect you once linked to a Beatles video, this leads me to speculate if you are, perchance, a Beatles fan. Then again, it seems I remember a TV series "Nowhere Man" which aired sometime during the 90s. Ah well, just one of those many little things that causes me to say "well huh?" Take care 'til next time Mr. Bridge.

Sincerely,
Morgan le Fay

Sweet L'ord baby child! What a unique and refreshin' voice you own, down-home humor laced with 'dem great literary quotes an' such insightful and illustrious poems, for Pete's sake, what a peculiar and dazzlin' way you got about you! What a delightful treat it is to hear from you! A quaint Pennslytucky drawl 'dat comes with such resplendent verbiage, words so strikin', so sublime, so imaginative an' descriptive, my-o'-my, I do believe you have what so many of us sisters possess, the heart of a poet!

“Well I pawn my honor”

“towns-n-ships.”

“That, my dear man, would certainly be a bedevilment and vexatious plague to practitioners of that noble profession.”

“the English language is enough to cause a sane person to be hurled headlong into the farthest nether regions of Bedlam!”

Whooo-eeee child, where ever do you come up with this kind a' talkin'? And 'tween us girls, I'd give you two-to-one odds Mr. Bridge don't even comprehend half o' what your sayin', right over 'dat Neanderthal brain o' his!

"Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing."
- Robert Benchley

My new favorite quote! So clever an' profound an' to the point.

Jasmine
