Idioms and puns to help us through the day

We had a very long, sleepless night spent between watching reports on television and on the internet, and running outside in the garden, where we strained our ears to listen to the far off sounds of gunfire and car horns. And then the shock of listening to 'the speech'. Disbelief at what was being said. What day is it, I wondered, surely it's not  the first of April yet!

It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings. . . . . 

Oh Libyans... Stay safe!.... no pun intended!

  4. Here in Virginia we are following the news from Libya as best we can but CNN etc haven't been able to get in there to cover what is happening so it is up to the locals inside to get out the word. I'm sure all your readers wish you and your famly safe and well.

  6. This group is working very hard to get information out to the world about what is happening in Libya, www.libyafeb17.com. The images and accounts are horrifying.

  7. Angry of loosing our peaceful Kingdom
    To blood thirsty & a thief of our freedom

    Gaddafi - a filthy name means turmoil
    As we watch him scavenge on our oil
    We said enough & our blood starts to boil

    Brave Libyans are rioting wave after wave
    Lined up, can’t wait to piss on his grave

    He’ll be cornered & wont get off our hook
    Burn him over bonfire of his green book

    Libya O’ Libya to hell with our Dick-tator
    Choke his sons like a dying carburetor
    Poison to him & to his daughter a vibrator

    Fighting evil so whatever will be will be
    Revenge time, we’ll avenge you Lockerbie

  8. Although I wish to remain anynomous, I too am in Libya. Last night we were going up on the roof of our villa listening to the gunfire when a car stopped on the street below us and began firing their guns. Our hearts were racing when we ran back inside.

    I am scheduled to fly out today.

    My prayers are with your family, and your country. I see the stress in the eyes of the Libyan people.

    God bless

  12. The latest developments are a bit worrying but hopefully it will be over soon. Try to record what you can - I am sure you will want to remember it in the years to come. Most importantly, stay safe!
