LOL

I would have pronounced "Helene" "ay-LEN", however, assuming that it had the accent marks to make it "Hélène".
 
FLORENCE ENJOYS LONG WALKS ON THE BEACH. . .ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE
IS DESTROYING THEM.


I laughed out loud. You are such a nerd.

Archon

The author of this website is an organist whom the New York Times calls “repeatedly, insisting that he pay for his subscription”. He likes to read parking meters, music, Indianapolis Monthly, and weather forecasts in Celsius, particularly whilst wearing cassock and surplice. He serves lasagna, overhand, as an example to many, and on ecclesiastical juries. He takes photos, lots of dinner mints, and a little bit of time to get to know.
