    he's lost his dingdoorum"

    But I have no idea how the words in question might actually be spelled.

  • I take it you're not in Vancouver just now, which is a shame because it's a stupendously beautiful morning! the kind that makes your earlobes tingle and your voice box quiver in a joyous contralto.
