Dell at Michelangelo's

"An iPhone picture of my sister, who drinks tea, while I drink coffee."

It's interesting that many people are absolutists about tea and coffee. Either they drink one or the other. I drink both happily and copiously.

There's an old word game that goes "My sister likes tea but she doesn't like coffee." You get to ask "Does she like [whatever]?" until you figure out the puzzle.

Ann Althouse said...

I drink tea too. But she doesn't drink coffee too.

That's one more way in which we are different.

Michelangelo’s???!!! The name of that place is blatant consumer fraud! It is a proven scientific fact that Michelangelo did not drink coffee. He did not drink tea. He didn’t even drink hot chocolate!

He did, however, drink this stuff.

BAM!!!

Aww, she's sweet-looking. I remember that photo of both of you, I think on Santa's lap -- was that the famous stink-eye photo?

Regardless, great shot. Good times. Both of 'em.

Cheers,
Victoria

I hope you took Dell to Sucre for dessert too. Yum.

I like that Michelangelos has two different doors that you can use to leave. This admissions shows you that I am easily pleased.

Fannee Doolee. She loves coffee, but hates tea. Loves apples but hates pears.

So you'd be the Apple to your coololdersister's Dell?

Bissage said...

I looked at that trompe-l'œil niche and statue and I say to myself, “Let’s take a closer look at that toe.”

And I wondered. Any chance Dell inherited one of these?

Two?

And like magic, we’re back to pedicures.

Sounds fishy to me.

So you'd be the Apple to your cool older sister's Dell?

Farmer in the Dell,
Farmer in the Dell,
Hee-yi yipee-oh,
Farmer in the Dell!

...hey, Ruth Anne went there first, Ann. Don't give me the stink-eye!

Cheers,
Victoria

Teas are for me. The oils in coffee turn my stomach into a frothing volcano.

Ralph said...

She keeps a teabag clothespinned to her sleeve--that's really hardcore. Does she have a battery-powered kettle in her purse?

Meade said...

Not to brag (much) but I have two cool older sisters. Count them - two.

Makes me doubly lucky.

"Hee-yi yipee-oh"

Victoria, I can see that you are not an American.

Makes about as much sense as high ho the dairy-o.


Time for some Inkspots:
I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivin' and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops! Mr. Moto, I'm a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot and I'll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Oh, slip me a slug from the wonderful mug
And I cut a rug till I'm snug in a jug
A slice of onion and a raw one, draw one.
Waiter, waiter, percolator!

Hey Coffey will be eliminated today on Nashville Star if you didn't vote for him.

Make sure you vote about fifty or sixty times for Melissa Lawson the plus sized cutie who will be shopping in my store.

So Doc...she single? [tries to tame rats nest of hair, takes breath mint]

Gosh, I've always wanted a lawprof in the family... :)

In truth, she is an American. Perhaps the better approach would have been, "you're not from around here, are ya?"

Ann Althouse said...

Well, I am sure the immigration test requires the proper articulation of the vowels from "The Farmer in the Dell."

Meade said...

the free encyclopedia:

Like most children's songs, there are geographic variations, and in the United Kingdom this is known as The Farmer's In His Den. The 'Hi-Ho, the derry-o' is variously replaced with 'Ee-i, tiddly-i' in London, 'Ee-i, andio' (for instance in Northern England), and 'Ee-i, ee-i' (for instance in the West Country). In the UK, the rat is replaced with a dog and in the final verse, all other players pat the dog or alternatively its bone. Additionally, "Hi-ho the merry-o" is another variation of the lyrics sung.
The melody is also used for "A-Hunting We Will Go".
In French it's "Le fermier dans son pré"


"Hee-yi yipee-oh"

Add a "Yippee Ki Yay Mo—," and I'd have to guess Victoria would hail from somewhere slightly west of the UK.

Hey! Stop slanging my origins! Anyway, I love Alan Jackson. I love my dog and I bleed red white and blue.

I'm more American than dirt.

Cheers.

If you're referring to the INS citizenship test, not according to the source
source to which Simon linked the other day.
