Linh: Prior to your arrival in our dacha, I stocked the bookshelf like a Potemkin Village in order to impress you!

Cindy Shirar said...

LOL, Chuck! I love this photo. Want to jump in and give Chuck a hug...

And I so enjoy reading about The Adventures of Chuck and Linh!

Linh Dinh said...

Yo Chuck,

You better return those to the library before they fine you!

Remaining on the shelves, then, are copies of Hustler, The Oprah Magazine (to show you're not racist), Barely Legal, Lolita, Big Butt, Over Fifty and Fabulous (to show you're not ageist), Skinny and Wriggly, Giggles and Gals, Spanking, Swish, Swinger and Leg Action, etc.

nice one, linh. highly enjoyable poem, chuck. linh's shown much light on all dirty old catholics in the past couple of days. love it. i'm one too, though i can't really imagine actually believing. there is so much beauty there, though, and sadness. i too much enjoyed your linh and chuck adventure. keep it up! (or as my doctor in uk said to me yesterday before i corrected her, 'keep your pecker up'. then we shagged).

Chuck Olroski said...

Thanks, Cindy -- hugs kill off lots of life's jabs, fast grabs, heists, bites, but they might lead to something that gets me in trouble. Hopefully there's more "Adventures of Chuck & Huckleberry Linh" to come.

Linh: You forgot to mention my "The Affordable How to Transgender Manual."

Larry: "Keep you pecker up." Thank you! That's a perfect system for beating the rising cost of meat.

Linh Dinh said...

Yo Chuck,

I can sell you a wig, two balloons and a box cutter for $99.99.

Chuck Olroski said...

What?? Do you want me to look like Hillary Clinton after an "all-nighter" in Iowa? Come down to $5.00, add lipstick, a broom, a pointy hat, and then we can talk!

Linh Dinh said...

For just $4.99 more, you can also have a blue dress and a date with Bill. (Bill is interested. He's actually paying me a fine commission to set this up.)

I see Chuck has an icon of St. Herman of Alaska nestled amongst his books. That means that he is one of the 'good guys'!
Jim of Olym
my first post here. Love your stuff Linh!

Linh Dinh said...

Welcome, Jim! I've never heard of St. Herman of Alaska, but I will read up on him. Thanks for identifying the icon!

Chuck Olroski said...

Jim: Back in 1981, a dear friend (Thalia) purchased the St. Herman icon at St. Tikhon Monastery, South Canaan, PA, and gave it to me as a gift. The icon was blessed by her husband, the late-Hellenic Orthodox priest, Father George Demopoulos, who served the Greek community in Scranton, and afterward Philadelphia, Linh's home.

Thanks for being so perceptive as to notice St. Herman of Alaska in our Taylor home. I don't believe Sarah Palin would have seen the Russian Saint from her Juneau venue!

Elizabeth said...

Oh, sure, it's fine for Chuck and Linh to fuck around on the internet, always thinking with their penises, but I'm supposed to sit here all day writing about my stupid life. No fucking around on comment threads, no hanging with my Disqus buddies, no John the Criminal, no writing emails, no parties, no sleepovers. This is pure sexism! So typical of boys.

Chuck, you are absolutely adorable! So are you, Linh.

Linh Dinh said...

Hi Elizabeth,

My penis has an IQ of 55, so can barely remember its own name. (Shaquille.) Chuck's has an IQ of 180.

Linh Dinh said...

P.S. Chuck is out driving bus for fundamentalist Baptist church.

Elizabeth said...

Linh, don't say bad things about your penis. Look at the poor thing, ashamed, lying there like a scolded puppy. That was very mean of you! Bad boy! Into the locked basement room for you so you can think about your sins.

And it's not stupid, just stupidified, like any useful penis must be, of whatever faith.

Chuck Olroski said...

Elizabeth & Linh: Just returned form the Revival Baptist Church bus run, and enjoyed new comments. How about a non-P.C. idea, something that can be open to all on Blog? For example, I'll start writing the first line of a sexual poem, and then others follow-up. Like thsi?

I look over my shoulder,
and a Native American...

Must depart, take son Dan to work!
