Disambiguation link notification for March 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Woman Hunt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Ashley (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Talking to bots[edit]

NOTE TO THE READER: User Gregg L. DesElms, on his talk page, responded to a bot (as he can see, here, above, that Fylbercatulous does), and joked, "oy, look at me... now I'm talking to a bot", which caused the following exchange...

(talk page stalker) I am talking to a bot as well. I was actually happy to get a notice. No one else has stopped by for quite some time. ツ All the best, Fylbecatulous talk 11:26, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Indeed... the "talk" page can be a lonely place! One as fancy, dancy as yours, though, feels very inviting. It's the least that a "talk page stalker" like you could do, of course. [grin] Seriously, though... nice talk page.

Agony in the Garden

This is a remarcable picture of an Angel. Actually a very good one. I have read people describing angels looking like this ... strong, poweful, radiant and golden. (well not all, but some). Anyway nowhere near the putti-look. It should be in the article. Go into you room and let none ... and then ... Hafspajen (talk) 04:46, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Very nice. I am reminded of a saying: a battle may be lost, but the war has already been won. I sometimes feel that my angels are not quite so powerful... Fylbecatulous talk 18:23, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Oh, now. I now have to let you know that you are not quite right here. Smash on that door. Hafspajen (talk) 18:46, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Second thought. The Protestants are crazy. What does the Ortodox Church have all those angels, icons and Saints for? Hafspajen (talk) 19:40, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Hafspajen, We pray for the angels and the Saints to protect us and intercede before God on our behalf. The icons give us a visual image for reverence. My favourite icon of of the Archangel Michael, actually. Saint George is a good one too; the dragon slayer. There be dragons, you know... Fylbecatulous talk 01:50, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

welcoming and cautioning
Thank you, free human speaking Lolcat, guardian of treasures; protector from evil, witchcraft and secret slander. for welcoming, cautioning, adding project templates, fixing, for dummy edits and thoughtful images - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:00, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Gerda Arendt, how sweet and awesome this is. ツ An honour I shall cherish; as well as the very words you chose in describing me. Many, many thanks. Fylbecatulous talk 13:11, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

I was honoured to see the blue duck on your user page, mate in mourning. Moar. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:15, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Gerda, 28bytes first introduced me to his fabulous bot that gave me calm behind-the-scenes work for many months. I still have the two Barnstars he awarded me up above on this talk page. What won my heart forever was the way he closed this discussion: Wikipedians who are not a wikipedian. I am still proudly a member of the redlinked category he left behind for us to be listed in. A true blue gentle admin. In solidarity - Fylbecatulous talk 23:07, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, and right now I am missing Hafspajen, for whom I placed the image of the lolcat with "I maded u a piksher", who is very much missed and I more than likely ping in vain. sigh....... Thank you again. Fylbecatulous talk 23:18, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Saw some promising words by Diliff that made me a bit more hopeful at FP talk.
(ec) I am so happy he's back (28bytes). He was the first admin who's RfA I supported, so the first I ever asked for help, and always got it. - I am also proudly a member of a red category, and sad that Alan isn't. Did you see my top notice today: this user supports Mkativerata? The pic for Hafspajen actually was the trigger ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:21, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, your page is already on my watchlist from when you gave me the blue duck. ツ Fylbecatulous talk 23:28, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Then you saw that I just added Hafspajen back ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:37, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, and the words 'thank' you' alone do not express enough emotion, so please accept the feeling of gratitude, Gerda. Drmies said, in this latest drama trauma over the Featured Pictures candidates battlefield, that Hafspajen wears his heart on his sleeve. So do I. A bit emotionally overwhelmed, I just took an ice cream break for solace. :) This is an awesome shrine you are keeping for the fallen, despaired and mistreated and for those who have recovered and returned. Deep regards, Fylbecatulous talk 02:44, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I wrote He was despised in 2012, and there's no end in sight. You saw "martyrdom", I guess? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:16, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, Gerda ツ And I saw your link later on Haf's talk page in the encouragement section, too. Fylbecatulous talk 08:07, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I received a Surreal today, for Kafka, - it certainly helps to have worked on Kafka to get over some of the arguments that seem surreal ;) - I said so after Teh Case, in other words. The No. 1 editor of Kafka would win a prize among the most mistreated easily, the one who named awesome wikipedians for the longest time, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:34, 11 August 2014 (UTC)


  • THANKS! No, no need for YOU to appologize at all, you never did anyhing at all to me. Well, it was just that Sca said my themes I chosen for the FP were sad well, maybe - but then - that is also part of the life. No, not anything from the Simple - but I - as you said - don't like being in places they don't like or appreciate what I do. People think they can run over anyone and still expect them to contribute. Because I did a good job and they were in need of that work - but if that is the way they took it - well then - do that yourself, guys... (those) So, tell me. Hafspajen (talk) 14:15, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
    Woman with Cat.jpg
The same admin who challenged you has done the same to me. I told him to mind his own business. I was not making bad edits and to leave me alone. He is now questioning Sminthopsis84 about some species categories for algae and Sminth is a botanist!!! That is just crazy, same with you and the images. You are the one who is a painter and educated with the knowledge and background to know what images are good and he is not even a person who knows a thing about art. Oh well, whatever. So I am off to look at FPC. In truth, I find it quite entertaining, as long as I don't take it personally. Happy, happy Fylbecatulous talk 14:33, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, blast what is he doing to Smit? And if it is so, why do they keep him as admin? Hafspajen (talk) 16:39, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
I decided a while ago that I don't let others decide if I go or stay, - it helps! Encouragement, encouragement, I even had a DYK on that, DYK? The article with the colourful image above had 24k+ hits during its time on the German Main page ;)--Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:50, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • well, of course, Gerda. But I really got the impression that on the small Wikis some admins tend to abuse their powers - and there are not enoug others to keep them on place. Not enough control over the power- people Simple Wiki has like 7 admins... - Hafspajen (talk) 16:59, 10 September 2014 (UTC).
  • That's right. There are so few and only three or so actually work. They are all in prickly cold moods. Remember our WikiLove discussion, Hafs. They were all in terrible moods about it. It was probably infuriating them that we were actually having fun, even while editing. Smit will be fine. Just gave Mac the facts and left it at that. Hard to argue with facts...ツ Fylbecatulous talk 17:03, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
hard to argue with facts if you look at them --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:08, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
Looks like your favourite painting, Gerda is framed that it cuts the artist signature in half... and I really don't know what I can do about it. It is a minor fault ... still, it might count - depends on how generous people are. Hafspajen (talk) 19:26, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
Hafspajen and Gerda, do we know this for sure; that it is framed this way? I looked at the google page and can't really tell except that the scan is clipped. As far as light fading making a difference if it is re-framed, any good museum now guards against light, moisture, and temperature damage. (Not that I know if the museum would undertake this for Wikipedia...) If the North Carolina Museum of Art does this (and this is where my interest and facts lie) with pathetic government funds, surely a good museum would. We even have barometers hanging everywhere and indirect lightng with no sunlight. I would love to support this painting and don't mind anyway about the signature, myself. Of course he has some other quite good paintings, now that I have looked.. Fylbecatulous talk 17:33, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

A dream[edit]

Resting the powerful typing paws

Hi Fylbecatulous and @Hafspajen: I wondered what you would think of this idea, if there is a way to propose it. Protesting by not editing on Mondays has the real problem of what to do about the vandalism and silliness that happens on Mondays; it could make Tuesday a miserable day for us serious editors. It seems to me that a real day of rest for all the wiki projects could be a good step for editor retention. If it were impossible for anyone to edit on Monday, we could all have a real rest. What do you think? Could that work? Sminthopsis84 (talk) 13:13, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Protesting by not editing on Mondays has the real problem - yes. But if you wan't to prove a point, you have to show that it has consequences - I imagine that is the idea with striking. What do you wan't me to do with the little cute coala? Hafspajen (talk) 14:32, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

It's time to make a stand against the arrogant and incompetent Wikimedia Foundation and its complete disregard for those of us who actually build this encyclopedia. Their salaries are paid on the back of our unpaid work, therefore in line with some others I've decided to withdraw my labour every Monday until things change. And if they don't, I'll be extending the length of my strike. I encourage everyone to join me.

Scandinavian goddess, magical cats and angels. Beautiful. Perfect. Thank you.

I think no one else has joined us because we can't really organise without bringing down rath, as our conversation on Sitush's page says. So it is certainly not having an impact good bad or indifferent. While editor retention is a worthy goal, this protest began because of a huge incivility issue all the way up to Jimbo. (Ironically, Hafs, Sminthopsis and I get continually bitten in this regard). I probably should just take down my template and stop trying to make a difference. I have virtually stopped editing on Simple and no one notices. Hafs departure was taken at SImple with silence except for yours (Sminthopsis) and my crying on my talk page. I intend to only write an occasional article there to keep my patroller rights. No more backlog, nothing.

Hafs, the koala is asleep. All these happy sleeping animals... ツ Thanks, both. Fylbecatulous talk 16:55, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Hey, there? And who is going to take care of the cats? I am totally incompetent on cats... Hafspajen (talk) 17:00, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
An Indecisive Moment
I am still the faithful keeper of cats. The dogs, not so well. Hafs, this works out well. You understand dogs; they are herd and pack animals. They have a particular temperament and require a keeper who can issue commands. With cats, a command is useless. Getting even one cat to come when it is called is impossible; herd obedience is impossible. I identify with cats because I too am questioning of any and all commands...'question authority' is my motto. Fylbecatulous talk 17:17, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Unrelated dreams. I didn't edit for 4 days in a row and nobody noticed. Yesterday I had an article on DYK, today it was translated to French, that's one of the thinks I like here. Also a cat by independence, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:22, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

I guess we need some central page to link to, so we can see how many are participating. It would be a shame not to notice that, just as nobody notices who is working. Hafs: you could prod the koala, but you'd probably only get a sleepy look in response. I thought I'd start a personal list of pages that I'm no longer watching. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 17:32, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Hey, Gerda. I had just pinged you and Hafs up above in the 'Happy' section to ask about the problem with this image of The Good Shepherd...sorry for second notice this will send you. Fylbecatulous talk 18:00, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem. - A friend died, to put things in perspective. Did you see the grave stone image on my talk? The line on it would be good for him, too. I hesitate to change the article, I am no RS ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:40, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Gerda, I am sorry for the loss of your friend. Yes, I just looked at the epitath and I have read the article you linked. May his memory be eternal. Fylbecatulous talk 02:50, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Sminthopsis, now your list of vandalised pages is a good concrete idea, but it makes me feel all the more that I should just remove my template and start back showing up on Mondays. As I said, we are afraid of organising too much (I suggested a category) but this has gotten us in trouble before. I have a redlinked battlescar on my user page from a fight to keep a protest category (Wikipedians who are not a Wikipedian). It went through several requests for deletion and all the way to a formal complaint that even the redlinked category and the members be deleted from Wikipedia's history. Fylbecatulous talk 18:14, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh, that crushing of independent spirit would be depressing. I think I'll keep my little list and see how it develops. Perhaps it will illuminate the "wikipedia doesn't need you" argument for me. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 20:07, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
I iz cat! sad and bad...
  • Sminthopsis, I hadn't realised until I happened to look at your talk page a bit ago, that you had hung your Mondays template with the adorable Maine Coon on Tuesday. ツ So there are really four of us, at least. I will continue on then with the Monday strike. Sheesh. You were talking about 'we' and I didn't even catch on. Thank you.... Fylbecatulous talk 02:43, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Maine Coons are wonderful animals. The three I have known have been referred to at various times as "dog-like cats"; they were all big silver-grey guys from different places and they never met one another. I'll let you know how my experiment goes. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 19:32, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you; I shall be interested. I have set my recent changes 'advanced options' preferences to be the same as yours in your essay / musings. I usually only watch my personal watchlist and the doggies and cats but your way is quite useful. Have a happy Monday ツ Fylbecatulous talk 13:07, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
  • The first results are in: I was expecting one or two pages that would have benefited from the revert that I withheld, but there are five. Yes, I find that option to group the changes useful for looking at a watchlist. I hope you had a good Monday. I did some gardening. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 15:46, 16 September 2014 (UTC):
  • Sminthopsis84, uh you have almost 4000 pages on your watchlist. ツ Mine is about 800... I am going to be away for the weekend with family, so I am trying to catch up on a few things. My mood for Wikipedia has been a bit blue this week, so I have not done much useful work for no pay. I see Hafs has blanked his user pages on Simple Wiki, which I guess was needed. It had been getting vandalised. It still makes me more than a bit sad to see all our happy chatter and work now in the history. Oh well...Have a good remainder of week and I will be back Sunday night, probably just in time to activate my 'away' template for Monday. Thanks. Fylbecatulous talk 17:24, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Well, what some idiot went on vandalizing it 4 times? Hafspajen (talk) 17:30, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Hafs, I don't understand your edit summary. I just meant I missed our good times for as long as they lasted. I hate Simple too. Please don't be angry with me. Please? Fylbecatulous talk 17:37, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
.Our Father, no, but that's not you. Hafspajen (talk) 17:41, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, okay, thanks. I understand. Hugs and many well wishes. Fylbecatulous talk 17:48, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Glad that was sorted out. Yes, what an idiot, or multiple idiots. The geolocate showed one of them at "Institute For The Redesign Of Learning", which sounds rather unfortunately like a name for a group of vandals. I was glad to see that eventually some of the addresses were blocked, but it took a while. I've been working through a category over there, just making little changes, and am quite shocked by the poor quality.

  • 800 is still a lot of pages to manage! I recently removed most species pages from my list, nearly 1000 of them. I'll have to find other ways to reduce the number, or reduce it to zero, which is very easy with the "edit raw watchlist" option, and I did that once. It felt good. Have a good break! Sminthopsis84 (talk) 18:14, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Remember my dream. On the German Main page, today and tomorrow, sorry no picture, lower right (Schon gewusst? their DYK): "Ich gehe nicht schnell, ich eile nicht". I do not go fast, I do not rush. DYK? ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:20, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Hafs, Thank you. Very much with purrs. ツ Fylbecatulous talk 12:34, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, More purrs for the visible light spectrum I do so love. I see this painter also has created a breathtaking aurola borealis. The diffusion and colours are trippy. By a fluke of nature some years ago the Northern lights were visible in North Carolina over a few weeks. We have such permeating light glare here, I had to drive way out halfway to the coast to adequately admire them. Fylbecatulous talk 04:17, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Northern lights
Is it Monday already?
How wonderful!! I have to laugh, because you chosed a very good picture, you know, you have really nose for this. Bescause is a featured picture, these two are the ones that actually are featured from his works, and now you managed to have them both on your page! Hafspajen (talk) 05:37, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you. ツ Perhaps there is still a bit of art appreciation in my blood. I was a disadvantaged child though, so I was never allowed to study such things. Not useful for a working skill, you know. Fylbecatulous talk 11:54, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Oh, Padre mio, Oh signor mio, sup>Dewey Readmore Books!!! Hafspajen (talk) 16:50, 19 September 2014 (UTC) Also < You mean -lack of money or economic support?

  • Hi Hafs, thank you for more beautiful light. I have been away for the weekend with family. Yes, in three hours it will be Monday in my time zone. I am going to look at Bernese Mountain Dog and see whats up with the FPCs, if I dare. (I have been with two of the most charming Husky - German Shephard mutt mix dogs about two year and 50 pounds each at my family's). I would love a dog actually but I couldn't pick either one up. ツ Fylbecatulous talk 01:12, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Bless this sweet cat who never did wrong. Please allow her fish in Heaven.
Well, if you start while they are puppies... and pick them up every day ... that was the method some Greek or Roman olympic competer used to strengthen his muscles... but he used a cow or bull. Hafspajen (talk) 15:36, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Looks like this article is in trouble. Hafspajen (talk) 22:17, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I am astounded! I have tinkered with it a little. The entire article just needs to be reworded. It violates so many issues of style... Fylbecatulous talk 00:03, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, Thank you for the image of Evening Prayer with the docile calm black cat. I was going to add an Orthodox prayer to be said by children at night as a caption. It is horrid and frightful. Not soothing at all: saying how sinful I was during the day and protect me from evil dreams from Satan while I sleep. I think I have said this before: Russian Orthodox is a very difficult faith. Not mercy and love. Fylbecatulous talk 15:19, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, don't say you are sinfull if you are not - but a little protection from the Wvil is not bad. Why don't you pray fre with your own words?Hafspajen (talk) 15:31, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Mostly I just say "help". My feelings are now in the image. Thanks. Fylbecatulous talk 15:46, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Keep protection near[edit]

Circle me Lord, Keep protection near, And danger afar, Circle me Lord, Keep hope within, Keep doubt without, Circle me Lord, Keep light near, And darkness afar, Circle me Lord, Keep peace within, Keep evil out.

This day I call to me:
God's strength to direct me,
God's power to sustain me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's vision to light me,.
God's ear to my hearing,
God's word to my speaking,
God's hand to uphold me,
God's pathway before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's legions to save me.

Winter's coming![edit]

Hi Fylbecatulous — I thought you might be interested in this gallery I've been working on. Sca (talk) 16:43, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Brooklyn Museum - In the Jungle, Florida - Winslow Homer - overall.jpg
Hafspajen (talk) 19:25, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
May I open that file by Winslow Homer or does it need to stay this way? It is gorgeous!!! Fylbecatulous talk 19:38, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Soon Monday's "dark day" will be here
Sca, I do very much love the gallery you have. Hafs, it seems you two might develop an article on Winter themes in paintings? A very wide and difficult subject to get in one article. I have bookmarked and have watched the two links to Night in paintings. When I return on Tuesday, I will look at them. Same as Sca, I can write well but have no knowledge or background in art. Nor do I have references. I haz nothing but a desire to write and copy-edit.

Hafs and I worked well together on some new articles on (shhhh...Simple English. I don't want Hafs to break out in an allergic rash) with dogs, religion and painters. In truth Simple English is the most difficult wiki to work with, language, tools and admin hostility. Thanks, both ツ Fylbecatulous talk 19:29, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

I, too, offer little beyond an old editor's (and copy editor's) language skills, plus a bit of translation. Sca (talk) 20:53, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Sca, thank you. These are truly awesome and atmospheric. To ponder is peaceful. Fylbecatulous talk 00:14, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

No slave, yes Swede[edit]

The Chess Players. ツ which is winning... ?

Hafs, I am going to leave this on my talk page until Bgwhite can see this chaos. I would hope we get an apology for our grief. Either way, I am so sorry about this. In a day or two I will place this in my archive along with all my other hurtful memories.

PLEASE, still feel happy and free to add your beautiful images to my page. and the prayers. This page will still be a shrine and you are a part of it, my friend. You are so welcome here and so are your gifts and trinkets. This is just a moment of graffiti that will go away and stay hidden. Just remember we have had fun and happy times.

You are no slave; you make a good difference in many others lives. Mine too. Fylbecatulous talk 17:07, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Well, I THINK, Bgwhite meant something like this: (translated from Bghwhiteska): Hey, glad to see you here old pall, what a pretty talk page this is ... (freely translated). Hafspajen (talk) 17:10, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I remember somone came to your talk page to leave a comment or notice and then said "Now why haven't I had this page on my watchlist?" after seeing how beautiful yours is. ツ Fylbecatulous talk 17:19, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
So, I was right about the translation! Hafspajen (talk) 18:16, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Message of peace to keep[edit]

Hafspajen and Fylbecatulous, yes, it was meant to be humorous. I apologize to both of you for writing it or not tagging it as humorous. I try to "humor" up alot of my talk messages and in this case, it backfired. I "blocked" Hafs a few weeks back for leaving some horrible songs repeating in my head and this "joke" was a continuation of that. My wife is a kindergarten teacher and she already knew of the horrible songs. She has been torturing me with them for the past few weeks. I really did mean what I wrote about the paintings. I did spend sometime looking and reading about them. Thank you Hafs for posting those paintings. Bgwhite (talk) 18:11, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Ah crap. I just read my talk page and saw the note from Fylbecatulous about not signing my post. That was unintentionally done. When I screw up, I screw up to perfection. Bgwhite (talk) 18:18, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
YesY Answered on user talk page ツ

Hafs, yes.ツ Have you seen the apology above from Bgwhite? I am going to reply to it. As soon as I know you have seen it, I am going to send it to the deep dark archive. Thanks so much for deleting my craziness from your talk page. I did say I am fragile... Fylbecatulous talk 20:01, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Ahem, there is a little surprize on his talk ... from me. Hafspajen (talk) 20:02, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, Oh, and I am going to save your angel image from that section and move it down to this one. Fylbecatulous talk 20:04, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Hafs, Yes??? It was? Sorry... Well, I have just made a comment at AN/I regarding a certain editor and mentioned you. There were so many edit conflicts...but I finally had my say. Fylbecatulous talk 13:53, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, thank you for my images, both. Very, very beautiful of The Danaides. I love the Greek Mythologies. Fylbecatulous talk 14:22, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Miniature schnauzer with beefstain.jpeg Puppy!
Xanthomelanoussprog has given you this puppy! Puppies promote… wait, that's not a puppy! Oi Jimbo! I asked for a puppy- what's this? It looks like it wants to bite me. I can't go round giving people dogs like this. It's not right you know. Xanthomelanoussprog (talk) 07:31, 7 October 2014 (UTC)


Unidentified monkey, Puton, Desa Trimulyo, Jetis, Bantul.jpg Any room for a monkey in your animal refuge?
Didn't mean to add to your restless night. I found a monkey all chained up and with no place to go. I want to free him... can you give refuge? He'd be cute once free, I'm sure.  — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:36, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Crisco, thank you muchly. Do not worry at all. Sleep is not a requirement for me. Yes, I happily accept a monkey; especially one needing to be set free. There is peace in my animal kingdom here. ツ All the best, Fylbecatulous talk 14:51, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Caviar for you![edit]

Beluga Caviar.jpg Pies can be filled with a wide variety of sweet or savory ingredients. Popular varieties include apple, cherry, peach, chocolate, and pecan. But this is caviar!

Take your caviar, put out the cat and go to bed now. Hafspajen (talk) 16:39, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, yum. How did you know I am hungry? And Caviar. Good for me. ツ Thank you so much.
This is too funny. I was just going to ask should I make coffee or tea. But getting some sleep is a much better idea. I can barely type and I am never good at it anyway. Fylbecatulous talk 16:45, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
Face-smile.svg. And when will people start beliving I am really psychic... Hafspajen (talk) 21:08, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Hafs, thank you for my siesta image. You always find the most amazing paintings. With the cat and the stringed instrument and the sling or hammock and the warmth of the desert...I would sleep there anyday. ツ And I believe you are psychic if you say you are. I was "born with the veil or caul", which is supposed to give one second sight. I did used to see ghosts and still have perception of future events. I was born in a Catholic hospital, so the nun said it was a blessing. I do not think so. Fylbecatulous talk 19:00, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Of course it is. Hafspajen (talk) 19:13, 10 October 2014 (UTC)


Ahem, you are not angry? About that article - I think admins are very careful about living people. There is that policy WP:BLP that wants to protect people that others don't start spreding rumors about them. Hafspajen (talk) 20:17, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Hafs, No no, not angry at all. And I promise you that if I am ever even a bit unravelled at the seams, it will never be at you. I promise and you can depend on that. Fylbecatulous talk 21:29, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
OK. Hafspajen (talk) 21:36, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, So, yesterday was Monday, of course and even tho I have taken down my banner, I am still not working. Over the weekend I had family birthday gatherings (not mine). And there is stuffs going on on Wikipedia now, that worries me. A couple of good editors are leaving or banned (not the one in the gender maffia. I am against that, entirely). It is Sitush and Begoon And poor Begoon's cat died. And I do get freaked out easily here, like at the DYK. But this is why I am not working at a job. I am a fragile flower and when I was working I cried every day. It is just not here. Fylbecatulous talk 21:41, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

I know- and I don't like it either. It is sad. Hafspajen (talk) 21:46, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Hafs, thank you for video. ツ As for the article on Jani Schofield, I actually did comment on the deletion thread. If it gets kept, okay; if not; also okay. There really is not much that I want to argue about here. P.S. I enjoyed your YouTube battle with Marty. I confess that I actually like Led Zeppelin, but Kashmir (song) is my favourite. Fylbecatulous talk 02:06, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Are you interested in helping out a bit? This is going to be a new article, Sminthopsis idea. ;User:Hafspajen/Jardin Jungle Karlostach. Needs some copyed. Hafspajen (talk) 19:20, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

What the heck. Hafspajen (talk) 20:04, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Doing... Okay. I will try not to get in edit conflicts with any of you. Confused.png Fylbecatulous talk 12:58, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Stopped editing it. Hafspajen (talk) 13:08, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs. Okay. Whatever you want... (sigh...) Fylbecatulous talk 13:31, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Hey there - nothing of the kind. If you don't want to throw yourself singing into the jungle, you don't have too. We will manage somehow. Hafspajen (talk) 13:37, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Hafs, Oh, I though from your edit summary you were tired and not editing for a while :(yeah, what is it with the cyclamens - ugh I need a rest) You please continue on and just let me know before y'all are ready to move it to article space and then I will copy-edit. (Or since you are in different time zones, I will catch I quiet chance). Sorry. Text can be so confusing...All is well. Full Smiley.png Fylbecatulous talk 13:51, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Well, then please edit it now. As it is now it can't be moved anywhere - it is a google translation and I am not capable to get the points in it - it is to contorted. It is French from the beginning - and now it is English - and someone who is good at this should give it a hand. Hafspajen (talk) 13:56, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Eh, what I meant I stopped editing it not to edit conflict you... Hafspajen (talk) 13:59, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

please forgive
Hafs, Yes, I have this figured out now. (Laughing). If only we had voice chat. Text can be so confusing as to meaning... Please forgive my misunderstanding. Fylbecatulous talk 14:07, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Ah, Rosa corymbulosa Face-smile.svg. Hafspajen (talk) 14:08, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, Thank you. ツ Roses are always appropriate, aren't they? The fragrance alone is so spiritual and uplifting. I burn rose scented incense any time I feel fractured. (Now you will tell me this one has no fragrance... ) ツ Fylbecatulous talk 14:26, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
No, all wild roses are good at that - well, most.

Are we ready to launch that garden? Sminthopsis84 ? Hafspajen (talk) 19:39, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Hafs and Sminthopsis, (already pinged-lol), I have worked on every section except 'Plant species" and have moved citations up into references for those. The lede and the 'location' and 'philosophy' sections are good. In "Plant species", Hafs, you still have question marks in and aside comments and ellipses... So if y'all will work on that section since you are the two garden experts I will copy-edit after. Hafs, did you see my comment on Sminthopsis's talk page about the greenhouse? Thanks, both. ツ Fylbecatulous talk 21:12, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Bred and vine?

I don't know about those bamboos growing so fast - I really dont. My bamboos never grow like that. Sminthopsis84 ? Hafspajen (talk) 22:15, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Oh. When I was a somewhat naughty child, I gave "lawn fertilizer" to a bamboo patch, which then grew so fast and so thick that it was rather alarming. There is at least one giant species that is known for growing a metre or so overnight. I should study them more, so I can quote species names. I expect that it depends on the species and that at least one of those in that garden grows spectacularly.
Anyway, I think it is looking good now, much better and ready for launch (or should that be spelled "lunch" as in the picture?), if y'all agree. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 22:34, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

.OK, Sminthopsis84 - you are the giant-bamboo-maker - I let you have the last bothanical hand on it.

Yes, all. I agree the article looks good and has turned out well. Ready for relocation to main article space. Thanks for my fruit, bred and vine. Very clever. Fylbecatulous talk 04:04, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for moving the article for Hafs and us, Crisco. Fylbecatulous talk 13:11, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, Just in case there is a cross-cultural misunderstanding, please do not place talkback notices on a talk page and have it appear as if it came from me (as you did at Crisco 1492's, who did get your ping). No signature, no edit summary? No answer pings? Fylbecatulous talk 16:31, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Ohy, but he knew it was not from you, but me. And the fact was there were several messages here on this talk. The message template doesn't say from whom the message is coming. But as you wish. Hafspajen (talk) 17:27, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Hafs, I have answered on your talk page but I also want to say here that I am sorry for sounding rude to you. Please forgive me. Peace. Fylbecatulous talk 22:17, 19 October 2014 (UTC)



Guess you missed all the excitment... Hafspajen (talk) 22:59, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for message, Hafs, Face-smile.svg. Actually I was aware of the invasion of Coat's sock and read the entire episode. Sorry it happened again. As for me, I can not worry and must be happy. ツ So many words flung around there during the battle, it made me dizzy. It can get very emotional. Should I continue to contribute there, Hafs? I am not nominating any images and only add 'support' votes. Fylbecatulous talk 14:52, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Gosh, it happened again. Sigh. Of course you should! Face-smile.svg Hafspajen (talk) 15:26, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, thank you for my crazy frog and cat image. This art looks exactly how my brain feels ~!!! (I know, you still read minds). Face-smile.svg. And okay, I will still participate at FPC. Many thanks, it is something I really enjoy and I would miss you and Phil and Crisco. Blessings, Fylbecatulous talk 15:41, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

I can't mail you, but I don't think you got that guy righ. Hafspajen (talk) 16:50, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
Hafs, Well I imagine you could give me a clue. Because without a clue I am thinking I might not have you right... Fylbecatulous talk 16:58, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
Sorry. I don't wan't to make you sad or upset. Since everything is followed, read and checked by anyone - and with this thing is going on - and it has more ramification you would imagine - I can't tell more. I've been working hard at University so I'm just very tired and maybe not thinking very well. -Hafspajen (talk) 18:14, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
