The hills are alive

The success of last night's performance of Mozart's Requiem (almost full house, we wowed 'em!) and today's beautiful, spring-like weather (it's only .2 C but the sun is SHINING! and the snowbanks are MELTING!) has prompted me to celebrate by granting a request some of my faithful readers made of me a couple of months ago.

If you recall, back on February 13, I posted a pic of the t-shirt I'd won from Alan at Random Burblings, which featured a chorus line of lovely yaks. This resulted in several requests for a pictures of my own yaks... norks... weapons of mass distraction — a mountain view, if you will.

And thus, I present to you, my lovely readers, the Himilayas of Dawn.

Update It has come to my frighteningly divided attention that some of my lovely readers think the pic above is the Himilayas. Strictly speaking, it is, but under cover of yaks. You have to clicky on the nice linky-poo for the yak-free shot.

That's the second time today I fell for the same bloody trick - proof positive that I had no brains to begin with.

Also, you have to admit, that was unfair bait. What red-blooded, hererosexual man can resist the possibility of a glimpse of weapons of mass distraction?

Ooh excellent. Even traps fellow meganorkettes curious to see just how you're gonna get out of posting a pic of 'em.

Hererosexual - displays a fondness for people from South America?

Mwa ha ha! My trap is working! "Hererosexual" is what happens when you try to sew on buttons and type at the same time. Don't try it at home, kids.

Meganorkettes. I like that!

Dear Dawn,

Apparently someone called "Wrathful" attempted to eat my brains on your website but was violently repelled with a shotgun. Apparently after eating 7 other brains.

Who is this Wrathful, and is she alright?

And why is she looking for something that isn't there?

And where are these meganork pictures we're all waiting for?

Yours, Confused,

Get's them every time ;)

Dearest TC,
My alter ego, Wrathful, has now successfully devoured 10 spicy brains. Yum!

I'm sure if your brain hadn't already been consumed, you wouldn't be confused.

The puppy card is always a winner. And of course, I learned from the master (mistress?), the one, the only, Misty!

So far I've devoured 10 spicy brains.

*burp* Indeed.

Haha! VW - nkebet - which is how my norks will never appear here

Aha! Recognised the web address just in time. You're not having my brains so easily young lady!

(Besides, you'd have to find them first. They have yet to invent the magnifying glass large enough).

I did this myself a few months ago. And yet, I fell for it.

There is a lesson here for me somewhere. But I don't know what it is...

Alan - Darn! It was a valiant attempt, though, you have to admit.

Mr. Faboo - Misty got me the same way. Which is where I got the idea. Mwa. And ha!

Of course you don't know what the lesson is. I've eaten your delicious brain!

Still, you're going to pop them out, aren't you?

Aren't you?

My brains? Too late. They were consumed last week.

Yikes!!! There's no snow left here, how can I go and jump in it?

[toddles off to Bollington, UK, for freezing cold shower]

Nice, um, yaks.

mmat - I'm glad someone understands the protocol.

Ricardipus - We had freezing cold showers here last night. And you could have avoided the line-up to get a passport.

Oh, and thanks!

Anyway in the interests of gender correctness should they be your Heralayas?

AM - You are, as always, correct. Although norks is easier to prounounce when you're pissed.

R'pus - prounounce - it's the British spelling. You know, with a 'u.' Shut up.

gw - I've always thought so.

Ooo good point, I forgot about the extra "u". Silly me.
