The author of The Seven Mysteries of Life recites an incident of a baby giraffe separated just after birth from its mother and kept separate and alone until it was a teenager.

No mirrors and no other giraffes.

When they were then re-united the young giraffe could not imagine that such a strange looking animal as the mother giraffe could have anything to do with him and rejected all overtures from her, persuaded it was an absolutely bizarre crittur.

Reminds me of the old farmer who finally saw one in a traveling circus and declared "They're jest ain't no such animaL".

Nothing but fog here last night. MIGHT have a few drops of rain today; it's 36F outside right now. Cloudy, but that will help hold the heat. Gee but it's nice to live in the Intermountain West!

MOM, if you get up in the middle of the night tonight you MIGHT see a little snow pass through the region. If you're smart, you'll pull the covers over your head and ignore it.

If he did that, a ginormous Black Hole would appear and it would swallow up the whole friggin' universe.

I am your Creator.
You turned out sort of okay.
QED: I must be much more okay than you are.

Hey, I learned logic and stuff from Franciscans, and they can one-up the Jesuits any day. Of course, I already knew all that stuff but the time had not yet arrived for me to announce that I am the Creator, the Thinker-Upper, of everything.

Ah, just blow 'em off and have another drink. That was our attitude when I was in graduate school and I turned out okay. Sort of, anyway. Besides, the profs all hated me. And I was sick a lot, too.

I am picturin' Amos and LH havin' it out mano-a-mano, rollin' around on the ground in the dirt, yellin' and screechin' and pullin' hair, scratchin' and gougin' and kickin', fists wavin' in the air, one hand shoved inta the other guy's open mouth just like Dagwood and Herb used ta do in the old Blondie comic strip...

And Rapaire on the microphone wildly callin' the play-by-play while I sell hot chestnuts to the cheerin' spectators and wink at the girls...

I bet we could sell a lotta tickets.

Well, I suppose that will have to do. Actually, I was merely inspired by your "for reference only" post, enjoyed it, and thought I'd do one of my own in the same fashion. It's fun, after all.

So here's another...

For reference only:

KNACKERED - (British slang expression) Checkmated, frustrated, blocked; similar to the American slang expression: screwed.

An example of the use of the expression "knackered" appears below in the 7th verse of the delightful Jack Thackray song "Leopold Alcocks"...


LEOPOLD ALCOCKS
by
Jake Thackray



Leopold Alcocks, my distant relation,
Came to my flat for a brief visitation.
He's been here since February, damn and blast him
My nerves and my furniture may not outlast him.


Leopold Alcocks is accident prone.
He's lost my bath plug, he's ruptured my telephone.
My antirrhinums, my motor bike, my sofa
There isn't anything he can't trip over.

As he roams through my rooms, all my pussycats scatter.
My statuettes tremble, then plummet, then shatter.
My table lamps tumble with grim regularity.
My cut glass has crumbled and so has my charity.

Leopold Alcocks, an uncanny creature
He can't take tea without some misadventure:
He looks up from his tea cup with a smirk on his features
And a slice of my porcelain between his dentures.

He's upset my goldfish, he's jinxed my wisteria
My budgie's gone broody, my tortoise has hysteria.
He cleans my tea pots, my saucepans, with Brasso
And leaves chocolate fingerprints on my Picasso.

Leopold Alcocks never known to fail
Working his way through my frail Chippendale.
One blow from his thighs (which are fearsomely strong)
Would easily fracture the wing of a swan.

I brought home my bird for some turkish moussaka
Up looms old Leopold I know when I'm knackered.
He spills the vino, the great eager beaver,
Drenching her jump suit and my joie de vivre.

Leopold Alcocks stirring my spleen
You are the grit in my life's vaseline.
A pox on you Alcocks! You've been here since Feb'ry
Go home and leave me alone with my debris.

So Leopold Alcocks, my distant relation,
Has gone away home after his visitation.
I glimpsed him waving bye bye this last minute
Waving his hand with my door knob still in it.

Well, Hawkster, I apologize; the truth is, I took your effort at imitation as a sort of piss-takem so I thought I'd take one in reply, but I see now how terribly, teribly wrong I was and I know I will never be able to make it up to you. I don't know WHAT to do. I suppose you'll have to suck it up.

I am mystified, Amos, by this apparent need you have to castigate me for my supposed gutter mentality and my supposedly vile social origins. You know perfectly well that it isn't so, so why do you do it? Herr Leibenscheiss should look into the matter and determine what sort of deep and dark emotional issues lie at the base of this unhealthy compulsion you have to smear my reputation and thereby symbolically destroy me...or at least banish me from what you imagine to be "polite company". I am hurt sir. Deeply hurt. I do not deserve this sort of treatment from you, and I am sure that one day you will deeply regret your intemperate and scurrilous attacks upon my character. When that day comes, as it must, I will graciously accept your apology.

In honor of the Feast of St. Nicholas tonight, the Legion Hovel has been decorated for the holidays. As usual, Stinky Smith lit the candles on the tree and as usual the thing burst into flames -- the Supreme Keeper of the Kash told the Decorating Committee last year to stop buying trees after Christmas and saving them for the next Christmas. Now they'll have to get the scorch marks off the skylight again, and once again go buy a tree at retail.

Naturally the outside is decorated in Christmas light and colors; as well as moldy pumpkins; tattered Union banners from Labor Day; various dud fireworks; posters of Abe, Martin, and George; a Guy; a recording of La Marseillaise (stuck on the line Que tes ennemis expirants), and a neon sign (broken) with the words to "O'Kanata" in Inuktuk. Among other things, some of them unmentionable and some no longer describable.

It's the holiday season, the holiday season...even the cannons out front are draped in lights and it's best not to be anywhere around them when the lights are on, unless you fancy electrocution.

For reference only:

gobsmacked: (English colloquial or slang expression) - Astounded, astonished, flabbergasted, stunned, deeply surprised. Derives from "gob" (slang term for mouth) and "smacked", as in shocked as though by a sudden and unexpected smack across the face.

Example: Upon entering the manorial bedchamber Earl Geoffrey was gobsmacked to discover his pretty wife engaging in intimate carnal delights of a thoroughly forbidden sort with a large, muscular chimpanzee who was wearing a vest, a tie, and a fedora, but nothing below the waist.

"WHAT is the MEANING of this???!!!!??" he finally spluttered.

"You must be jokin'," said the chimp. "The meaning of this is dead obvious. Yer wife needs a bit more entertainment than you been givin' her lately, Roscoe. Got any more stupid questions ya want answered before I leave?"

And another:

ANALEPSIS: The recovery into consciousness of unconscious, repressed or forgotten material. Clear examples are in Max Ernst's descriptions of the discovery of frottage and Salvador Dali's paranoiac-critical method.

And as long as we are meandering in the corridors of post-deconstructionist prepubescent modernism, here's another:

ALETHEIA: Originally a Greek term meaning "truth" or "the unconcealedness of things." Current writers often use the word with the connotations supplied by Heidegger in The Origin of the Work of Art, in which an artwork is useful to the extent that it can open up a space in which existentially alienated beings (see alienation) can discover the meaning of their existence, which is not synonymous with "truth" in the conventional sense. See Dasein, existentialism, existential phenomenology, Open.

You can find as many of these confused notions as you can possibly want here. Spinny stuff; it is still hard for me to comprehend that there really are people who traffic in these granfalloons as a way of life.

For reference only:

ABSURD: Generally, a state of irrationality or meaninglessness. More specifically, absurdity is 1. a flaw in logic (see reductio ad absurdum) or 2. a basic premise of existentialism which asserts that the meaning of the world does not precede the existence of beings capable of formulating a conception of meaning.

Last night we went to a party in the woody bluffs over the sea-canyons of Del Mar. I was knocking out big fast blues thangs and there were about twenty shapely lasses swinging it all on the dance floor -- a patio with a lovely wood fire in a brick pit alongside it making terrific shadows in the California night.; a most amazing scene, I am hear to tell you. Wisht I had a pichoor.
