Is that your nickname for Sophia, Pleasure?
October 25, 2006 at 7:58 pm
Neil, just be yourself.
October 25, 2006 at 8:12 pm
Neil, I told you what you needed to do to make it happen, mmmkay?
October 25, 2006 at 8:14 pm
How could she resist you?
October 25, 2006 at 10:30 pm
Welcome home Sophia!!
October 25, 2006 at 10:39 pm
Tell Pleasure to take a number, I’m busy. Unless he’s really hot. Then tell him I’ll be right there. Is that too desparate?
October 25, 2006 at 10:55 pm
seriously, what do the numbers mean??
October 25, 2006 at 11:22 pm
Ancient secret numbers? The true meaning of “Lost?” No, they are numbers for the lottery!
October 26, 2006 at 4:38 am
Nice one! The only thing awaiting me is laundry. *sighs*
October 26, 2006 at 4:39 am
And if you use those numbers, I’m certain you’ll win the lottery!
October 26, 2006 at 4:48 am
You must be busy buying flowers,lighting candles, fluffing pillows, pouring wine for the big day/night.
October 26, 2006 at 5:29 am
awk bless! hope it all goes well!
October 26, 2006 at 5:36 am
That along with the YouTube dance – she must be swooning. Hope it goes well.
October 26, 2006 at 5:41 am
Why is there a . between 47 and 13? is it 47.13 – does that work for the lottery?
Welcome home Sophia!
October 26, 2006 at 5:49 am
Neil, please forgive me, but I used you to write a post on Speaking in Code! Sophia, you, too, must forgive me.
I have poor boundaries. But since the post IS in code, no one will get it, and it should all be okay. Gam zu l’tova, right?
October 26, 2006 at 6:05 am
I’m still laughing abou the Youtube dance. How could anyone resist. Isn’t your fortune a Roxy Music song?
October 26, 2006 at 6:20 am
Once I got a fortune cookie that said, “Don’t trust the person across from you.”
October 26, 2006 at 6:38 am
Welcome home, Sophia.
Pleasure is good. Don’t overanalyze, Neil, just relax and go with your gut. And tell your penis to keep his mouth shut for once.
October 26, 2006 at 6:53 am
Ugh, this post has me craving Chinese food now. Thanks, Neil!
October 26, 2006 at 7:36 am
You’ve got to write a song about her homecoming. Do it!
October 26, 2006 at 8:02 am
You know that trick you use in Chinese restaurants. You add the words “in bed” to the end of every fortune. “Pleasure awaits your company…in bed.” It works!
October 26, 2006 at 8:26 am
The last fortune I got read, “Accept the next proposition you receive.”
All I could think was, “eeeeew…”
October 26, 2006 at 8:42 am
When my mom had “the talk” with me, the term she used to describe the sexual relationship between two people that love each other was “pleasurable.” She also dropped this therapy requiring phrase on me, “I find intercourse with your father to be very pleasurable.” Suffice it to say that now any time I come across that word in any of its conjugated forms, it takes everything I have to not curl up in the fetal position and spend the rest of the day in a vegetative state.

If I were a hooker, that’s what my buisness card would look like. Only it’d be my cell number rather than lotto numbers.
October 26, 2006 at 10:04 am
I need that fortune cookie 😉
October 26, 2006 at 10:10 am
Margaret’s comment had me cracking up!!!!
October 26, 2006 at 10:11 am
i’ll have to use those numbers for a lotto ticket here, see if i have any luck.
at first i thought maybe it was her flight number and gate number, wouldn’t that be spooky!
safe flight to home to your sophia!
October 26, 2006 at 11:56 am
awwww, Neil. She’ll be back soon.
October 26, 2006 at 12:08 pm
I love getting the right fortune at the right time.
When they are wrong and dumb, they don’t count.
When they are right and perfect, it’s the universe conspiring in my favor.
May the universe continue to conspire in favor of you and Sophia.
October 26, 2006 at 12:28 pm
Lotto Ticket. Get one. Luck is bound to be on your side soon.
October 26, 2006 at 12:38 pm
Melanie, not a bad idea…
October 26, 2006 at 1:31 pm
Y’know, I’d be wary of eating in a restaurant which is THAT empty. It can’t be too popular.
October 26, 2006 at 2:36 pm
I hope it all goes well for the two of you.
October 26, 2006 at 2:47 pm
I don’t know man – ‘still separated’ may not mean ‘horny’.
October 27, 2006 at 12:03 pm
How can Sophia possible resist fate speaking to her through your fortune cookie?
