*lol* I'll volunteer if you ever need a spanking to teach you what will happen if you ever enable someone else to buy a deck by de-enabling them. Or just a general "you'll know what it's for" spanking. Just let me know. I'll be over here with my spoon.

I ask you! WTF???
Oh, it *doesn't* even follow RWS meanings? Hm. I snakes greatly, so calling it Danger doesn't appeal to me at all.

LOL. Greggers, I hope you'll re-think that vow - it certainly wouldn't be worth it!

I wondered when someone would notice that! lol

Actually, I'm a classical musician, so Scheherazade is already in my CD collection. However, I don't particularly like it! I absolutely cannot imagine trying to read to that music - Gregory is right, it's way too noisy... not to mention that my ex is a violinist, and all those slippy-slidey violin solos would remind me of him.

Yep, you guessed, it those topsy turvy top/bottom LoS duplications of another card. In this case it is the Wheel of Fortune, which - while we´re on the subject of irrelevant - is a pond...
Well, with that I'm now 118% de-enabled (as I was already 98% de-enabled after sapienza's post. I cannot ABIDE those LS backs. What in heaven's name are they thinking with that?

Okay, I've been 118% de-enabled, and I just deleted it from my Amazon shopping cart. High fives all around!

Excellent. I think a pat on the back to all de-enablers for this one...we did good! And especially Le Fanu with the backs.....I hadn't even thought of that and yet that is without doubt the icing on the de-enabling cake!

Actually, go back through the thread. You'll find, plain for everyone to see, the exact *instant* when I noticed it. It was the millisecond when I decided not to de-enable you. <grin>

Me too, and me too. I find him a bit annoying at the best of times - he does something odd with violins that no one else does and which I really, really don't like. Can't pick what it is, though, and I'm not motivated enough to buy a schore and read along with the music to the annoying bits. And that slimy figure he uses for the girl! Urgh. (And it wasn't Rimski-Korsakov, was it - Richard Strauss is coming to the fore? Of course, I *could* always look at the CD.)

It was SO old Rip-yer-corsets off.

I quite like it - but NOT for reading to !

And what would THAT de-enable anyone from ???? (well, pretty much anything actually; you'd all run for cover.....)

*stashes the thought in arsenal for future use....*

Yep - that bit about the backs took the cake (with or without icing!). to Le Fanu!
