60% Vegetables.
It's very catchy. It needs a second half to shout back though, you know, like those good old Teen Slogans.
I cannot adequately describe my fondness for the word "roughage".

Thats been my favorite word for 5 years and running.

It's best used when sitting around those large vegetable trays with dip in the middle. "mmmmmm" you lovingly say while eying the crunchy broccoli "I was feeling the need for some good roughage"

You can't steal ALL my ideas!

Roughage is very nice, you're right. Like the curd in bean curd is good too. But it doesn't have anything to do with vegetables. Neither does grot. Which is another nice one.

Roughage ranks right up there with...string beans(heavy on the string),celery(also heavy on the string),and bran shaped in small dog food looking things, that's really good for scratching your throat when you just can't reach that itch.
Diarrhetic is a word that comes to mind immediately following, and is in general just that much less Godly

Wow, everyone coming up with the most godly words ever. My smarty-pants & ultry 60% veggie eating husband didn't know what roughage was till I told him (he was a grown man) maybe that's cuz' he never had to be told by the doctor, "What you need is some good ROUGHAGE!!"

And the bran, kari, is shaped like Rabbit droppings. I love that stuff, it smells like something out of a barn.

Al, I'm neither a princess nor silver, I'm afraid you've mixed me up with Sophie, but I forgive you. :-*
Are you sure the bran isn't horse feed? What you just described sounds just like what we used to feed the horses...
And I have a very "Healthy Living 2" friendly recipie for you Al. I'll send it sometime.

This is off topic of your post, but I just wanted to say that I hope we hear more of you singing. Do you have any plans to record? I always thot your sister had talent, but I enjoy your voice more than hers. I had thot how cool it would have been to see you at Wordstock. Pls sing more...and sing so loud so we can hear you on the other side of the world. :)
Love, Haven

Hey zurui! Al, how could you disrespect a foreigner like that? Sigh. Here Haven's being all sweet and stuff saying nicer things then I'll ever deserve to hear. (Secretly I agree with you though. I'll never be a rock star because I'm FAR too wimpy, and that's the real reason.)

Haven, you're an angel of love and mercy. Maybe I'll snoop around the internet and try to find your e-mail address in some secret place so I can write you letters of appreciation.
