Oops... Sorry for the delay getting the definition up this morning. I was so fixated measuring my morsels that I ate my words. ~ James

Interesting. There sure are a lot of "Susan/Suzy/Sue" appearing with today's definition....

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2007-07-23: 13:42:00
Maybe Suzy has an eating reorder ~ James

purpleartichokes - 2007-07-23: 14:16:00
Now listen people what I'm telling you, A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue...

purpleartichokes - 2007-07-23: 14:17:00

Wake up, little susie! The definition is late! (Actually for me it's awesome, because normally these are posted in what is the middle of the night for me.)

Clayton - 2007-07-23: 17:51:00
Funny, I'm currently eating at Suzy Q's in downtown Denver. I'll be rejoining you in October, if anybody misses me. In the meantime, be creative! I stole that line.

Kyoti - 2007-07-23: 20:16:00
Although none feature the eating habits of a boy named Sue. How do you do?

Jabberwocky - 2007-07-24: 14:09:00
Hey Clayton - if you check in again, we do miss you. Have a great summer!
