Oh, the humanity...

Rachael, it's all your fault. :P
Two new possible quotes to change my voicemail to:
"O! Plus! Perge! Aio! Hui! Hem!" or "Sentio aliquos togatos contra me conspirare!"

I'm making a second batch of pumpkin soap as soon as I figure out what to scent it with. Hopefully I have something in the drawer that won't make it seize and will complement the cinnamon and nutmeg. Might also make the next batch with some soy milk, to make it creamier. Oooh, the possibilities. :D

*giggles* Glad I can be such an inspiration. Just rememeber "Perge" is pronounced "per-gay." LOL! ;P

I can't wait to hear how the second pumpkin soap batch turns out! It sounds *so* yummy!

Okay.. thanks for clarifying that. :P Mom and I were scratching our heads over it last night. She wasn't sure if it was pronounced "pur-geh" or "pur-gay". :D Just to be sure, the rest of it, the h's are silent, right? So it would end up being something like "Oh! Ploos! Per-gay! I-o! Oo-ee! Emm!" ?

It's a toss between gingerbread smelly or creme brulee.. it's really, really tough to decide. Those are pretty much the only things I've got in the drawer (I think.. have to look again.)

Nope, the "h" is pronounced. Oddly, it is dropped or silent in many of the Romance languages, but in actual Classical Latin, the h was not silent (though Ecclesiastical Latin doesn't pronounce it).

Hmmm... That *is* a tough decision. I couldn't say which I would think would work better.

La Duchesse said...

*rubs hands together and cackles most evilly* Thank you. >:D You have now made up my mind for me as far as which one to use for voicemail.

My vanilla beans arrived today! Whee!

Rachael said...

YUM! Vanilla beans!!! *nom, nom, nom*

LOL! You're welcome!
