I prefer the word "aflame"... it lends itself to much more manic laughter.

I just want to know what the original context was for the burning building.

It was just a "house" that was "afire"... Afire like the passion between spygrrl and me ;-)

Ross, if things don't work out with spygrrl, I'm in queue!
Have you seen a book called The Gashlycrumb Tinies, by Edward Gorey? I think you'd like it. Available at http://www.geocities.com/sunsetstrip/stage/7535/gorey.html

Ross Horsley said...

Thanks, progga. The Gashlycrumb Tinies is brilliant. I had actually heard of it before, and seen a few of the illustrations, but this is the first time I've read the whole thing -- and I love it! (Predictably.)
