Ah, now I see the whipping motion Alan is making. Makes sense now.

Having been there, I will bet heavily on the "hacking here" option. Disturb me whilst I'm at my computer, and I get this whole, "Mess with me again, and I'll see how well you go with fava beans and a nice Chianti" outlook. Used to scare the hell outta my family, and later, my roommate. Makes me glad for a place of my own...<P>BTW, what's with Ryan's shot at Alan, there? Does he know something that we the audience don't - yet? Perhaps Helene finally landed Alan over the summer. After all, so many others became attached...<p>[This message has been edited by David Adrian (edited 09-26-2001).]

Ceilidh is being controlling. That's not good. Especially calling your boyfriend any kind of nitwit is not good. Seems like she's going to go too far with it and make him mad.

You scare family and friends with that look too? We should form a club or something... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif">

Look how bad Joe jacked up his relationship with Phoebe. Take it from someone who's been married for 11 + years, my wife STILL calls me a nitwit (actually one hell of alot of other deleted explicatives).
