Amos has finally forced me Over The Edge and I will flee to Ireland and drink Guiness and Smithwick's and Even Stronger stuff.

It's all his fault. He should feel very, very, guilty.

There are many forms of goodness in the world, BeeDub, as you well know. SOme folks, the shape-shifters of virtue, transmigrate from one kind of goodness to another; if they're not good at stealing cookies undetected, they're being good at eating them, enjoying them, digesting them, or contributing them back to the environment.

Besides, I only use that phrase when I think I might have gone too far in annoying Rapaire, and am trying to make him hold still for the next black banderilla in my own little tercio de varas.

Hey, Mom! How come Amos always calls Rapaire "Good Rapaire"? I just got through talkin' with Wanda, one of the floozies that works at Velma's, the "dance hall" across the street* from The Legion Hall, and she says the boy ain't much good at all. She says if it's true that you are what you eat, Rapaire must eat nothin' but Minute Rice.


* Calling the thing between The Legion Hall and Velma's a "street" is being extremely kind. "Mosquito infested quagmire composed of equal parts mud, horse manure, and cow manure with the occasional dash of Legionaire puke tossed in for variety" is a more accurate description. But since it's hard to fit all that into the address line on an envelope, they call it a street.

He's mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's health, a boy's love, a whore's oath, a fencer's position, or a librarian's certainty..." said Lear.

And we all know that without purely spiritual powers, there is no certainty on the momentum and position of any particle, including Rapaire's, at any single moment.

Therefore, as you dream of Rapaire performing Aerolingus on his way to Shannon, remember he may perfectly well be riding bareback on the steppes of eastern Siberia. Ya never know which way the cat is gonna jump.

Alas, Rapaire, poor Rapaire. Oi knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite
jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his back a
thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is!
My gorge rises at it.

Yes, he is. After he eats, showers, gets dressed, and things like that. Then tomorrow he's going to take an east-bound Aer Lingus flight to Shannon, assuming he doesn't get the Petty Hitler at the checkin counter he got last year. If he does he's going to be more than a little POed and will make the PH's day for him.

Ta, Mom. I'll try to check in if I can.

I thought this somehow apropos.

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large
plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags rips, and every once in a while a $20 bill falls out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stops her, and says, "Ma'am, there are $20
bills falling out of your bag."

"Oh, really? Darn!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back, and
see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me."

"Well, now, not so fast," says the cop. "How did you get all that
money? "You didn't steal it, did you?"

"Oh, no", said the little old lady. "You see, my back yard is right
next to the football stadium parking lot. On game days, a lot of fans
come and pee through the fence into my flower garden. So, I stand
behind the fence with my hedge clippers. Each time some guy sticks his
thing through the fence, I say, '$20 or off it comes'.

"Well, that seems only fair" laughs the cop. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by
the way, what's in the other bag?"

"Well, you know", she says. "not everybody pays".

There are two different paths to a single root (and one skin). The Latin root preparare, to get ready for something beforehand, is the same root as the one from which we get paring, I think, and it originally meant to reduce something little by little (since about 1500). It comes from an old root implying the birth of a calf or small animal. Parare, Lat. means to get ready, while preparare means to get ready beforehand. When you pare a vegetable you are making it ready, but you are also preparing it if you do it before you need to use it. If a vegetable is moving along a rail track at the speed of light c, and is observed by a chef C standing on the nearby platform X, then it will appear to the observer C to never quite arrive at readiness. It's all relative to temporal distortion.

it's a paradox anyway, because if before paring the item is prepared; but prepared would normally mean it was pared prior to purchase, in whihc case it would not need paring, because the prepared item was already pared.

Hey Mom! 'Splain somethin' to me! When you remove the skin or rind from a vegetable before cooking, it's called "paring", right? And after that skin has been removed, the vegetable has been "pared", right? Now, the prefix "pre" means "before", right? So a vegeatble with its skin still on could be said to be in a "prepared state", right? But a vegetable that has been cooked is also said to be "prepared". So first it's prepared, then it's pared, then it's prepared. Huh?

I'm reading another history of Juneau's early days.

The first winter - 1880 - about 20 miners stayed over. They built rockers and sluices and stuff until the snow came and stayed and then just kind of sat and waited for spring.

The next summer one of them was asked how they had made out. And he said, "Mainly we lived on snowballs and pepper."

Isn't that a great line?

Your quick and sharp with fresh bull-shit,
Colorful language, thick with wit!
Except for one, who sans constraint
Rhymes "mineral" with "self-restraint".

Here's the bright, the pure, the great
Who brought us through that Twenty Eight
And to the rascal, thick but quaint,
Rhymes "mineral" with "self-restraint".

Onward brave spirits!! Onward climb!
Perchance to reach Great Twenty-Nine!
Except for one, who, growing faint,

The most highly evolved dinosaurs at the time of the great extinction were probably about as intelligent as our deer. Not exactly dripping with smarts, but a helluva lot smarter than the lowly underbrush-dwelling mammals from which we evolved. They were much farther from being lizards than we are from being hedgehogs.

You base-ten people amuse me with your superstitious belief in the special power of numbers ending in "000". Had it not been for that big hunk of space rock that hit the earth some millions of years back, thus changing the course of evolution and allowing mammalia, not dinosauria, to become the planet's dominant animal class, the most highly evolved animals would be the descendents of dinosaurs, not shrews, and they'd have four digits on each appendage, not five, which means they would use a base-eight counting system, not the decimal system we use. In base-eight, your precious '28000' is '66540'. Not so special any more, is it?

I am the very model of very modern self-restraint
I've never grabbed a hundred or a thousand, never, no I ain't
I never charge at usury on the things that I have lent
And Mom calls me her favorite though Amos thinks that I am bent.

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous
In short, in matters bibliographical, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of very modern self-restraint.

I know our mythic history, King Khandu's and Sir Tweedledum's
I answer hard acrostics, I never curse the very dumb
I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of old Bee-Dubya-Ell
In religion I can tell the heavenly stairs from the floors of Hell.

I can write an acquisitions list in Babylonic cuneiform
And tell you ev'ry detail of Ranganathan's uniform
In short, in matters bibliographical, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of very modern self-restraint.

Wish I had called to hear the message saying the office was closed before I drove 30 miles to work this morning.

Wish there had been enough snow for a good sled ride.
