Having to wait until the end of the sentence to find out what was going to happen to all those nouns! 🙂 Robin Dance ~ PENSIEVE on at Ha! Esther :). The friend who gave it to me, did so in part BECAUSE of the name; but also because it is very German. I love it for both reasons :). Robin Dance ~ PENSIEVE on at LOL, Tom…ummm, teacher of patience, Hmmm. I never looked at it that way but maybe I should have. Then I could speak more than numbers ;). Linds on at I know, but I won’t give it away either, because I am in the middle of German speaking Switzerland at the moment!

Robin in New Jersey on at The little pictures on the box make me think it’s a meat thermometer. lib on at I think it’s a tool for cracking boiled eggs 🙂 they’ve got gadgets to match their boundless verbage! firstname.lastname@example.org on at I couldn’t even figure it out by cheating.
