Nothing if not persistent

"However, the teeny, tiny (not polka-dotted) bagel is a bee bagel. For that one, you must indicate the precise (and accurate) location of the "beginning" by doing the bee waggle dance." (emphasis added)

"People steadily crossed the yard carrying things that gave them a reason for being there - shopping, briefcases, musical instruments, library books, city maps or rucksacks..." (emphasis added)

Beeing the reason after the dance.

On the other hand:
I never nursed a dear gazelle,
To glad me with its dappled hide,
But when it came to know me well,
It fell upon the buttered side.

Now, was it Joyce or Elliot. I'm getting confused. You know, it is unclear that Thomas Moore was ever in Africa. How did he know about Gazelles?
“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
However, in four days we'll get to sing my favorite song of all time.

I think I damaged my chair while listening to your Irish music clip on YouTube. Very beautiful -- and it's impossible to sit still while listening to it.

You'd better watch out where you put that pencil -- you might poke Felix (he's down there somewhere). He's one of those David Carradine types who look all meek-and-mild --until you poke them with a #2 pencil and they kung-fu the hell out of you. He's got the rope sandals and he knows how to use them.
