I originally posted this as humor but I thought it might make a fun, if limited, thread for thought.

MIX is my
favorite
Roman
numeral
that spells
something


Windchime came back with-

DIX = group of politicians
and
LIV = last survivor
(or something like that)

I responded with-

DCIV = Marion Barry

Pick a numeral and be counted!

Mere rhetoric on my part. My imagination may be omnivorous but I remain monogamous in practice.

Experience oft trumps nubility. You obviously remain young at heart.

Thanks for playing!

On Route LXVI?
Kacee- You are a sunshine band all by yourself.

I believe that technically DIM must be MID, romanumerically speaking, but I'm not one to let rules stand between me and my fun.

I now offer a compound numeral:

MID LIV = a crisis, perhaps?

IV'e got more, but I hesitate to exhaust the limited possibilities.

OK, one more- LIX = 59 = ?
(Total seems ten shy to me.)

Next?

LVI = plural of Elvis?

Th-th-th-that's not all, folks!


No rules, just right.

VI L = a stuttering greedy serial killer or what Elvis kept his pills in

Did Ceasar sit up nights?
Posted on a blog. Thought I'd share them here- If I had time I bet I could come up with plenty- (as long as they don't have to be ACTUAL numbers...not so aesy with only one vowel!)

LIVID- this is the number I feel when I think about my continuing saga to squeeze owed money from my ex... who's name happens to be Roman!

-MILD- this is my natural nature, or so I'd like to think (unless it comes to Roman)

and finally, for now

-CLIX- something that has been a plague since middle school, still is a plague in middle schools, and I seem to remember it even being a bit of a subject here at Lit.org.

Blessings Soos, etal.-

Ceasar Solid?


I guess sometimes I sit up too late more times than I care to enumerate. I appreciate the company of nearly everybody here. Thanks, emaks, for tolerating my odd side (as if I had another).
