the pizza you eat backward

Words I know of which have all the vowels, once, in alphabetical order: abstemious, annelidous, arsenious and facetious. To be truly inclusive, you can add -ly to the first and last and they still work. I guess maybe you could do that with the middle ones too, but usage would be less certain. And I know "w" is occasionally a vowel, but we're out of luck there since it only shows up in Welsh loanwords like cwm, which isn't as dirty as it looks. It means a glacial lake on a mountain slope and you use it in Scrabble.

Last night, in my sleep, I hunt wolves with my father. I lull them to sleep by playing the harmonica in the key of C minor, and my father shoots them. Later I find an uncut diamond the size of a robin's egg at an auto shop.

Eminem and Elton John duet. Weird. They're really stretching to give people a reason to watch the Grammys. Ricky Martin or Mark Anthony? Dear God, the suspense. And speaking of orgies of industry self-congratulation, Microsoft has a Seattle gala coming up to launch Windows XP.

Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pennsylvania, wants to impeach Clinton again. No comment.
