Dear MOM and Sibs,
I just rolled in from a whirlwind tour of Yellowstone and Teton National Parks. Yes, we made s'mores, no we did not make them in the uncouth way Rapparee hinted.

I spoke German off and on the whole time and learned many new words. By far the best new word was the German term for marshmallows: Mausespeck. Translated, it means: Mouse Bacon.

That makes s'mores sound even less appetizing!

Now I'm going to go take a shower and then a nap.

Eiseley

Be afraid.

Be very, very afraid.

In fact, do what I do and find a nice comfortable corner to sit and whimper in. I find it very comforting to do that.

I returned to read up on what happened since my story writing. There are too many in jokes and now I'm scared again.

Oh Mudcat, how I love thee. On a cold rainy day, I shall take you on and enjoy endless amounts of mirth.

I've been working in the yard, mowing the grass and such. Eiseley's in jail -- something about the SCA and re-enacting Lady Godiva and I don't know what all, just a few lines in what passes for our local newspaper.

MOM, the boy musta gone on a toot up in a mountain meadow with the gang from the Legion Hovel. I heard rumor someone wanted to reenact a Rendezvous campout up there. In which case, they'll roll in when the booze runs out.

That doesn't explain why Eiseley hasn't been here, except that I know she's employed and has young 'uns to tend to. She's probably out slaughtering a steer to feed the boys this winter.

I've been shopping a little this afternoon myself, nothing exciting. Too bad I live so far away from real mountains, an escape to a high pasture would be nice about now! (or, for some of you, escaping to get high in a pasture, back in the old days?)

gnu, you'll be pleased to know that unlike Bruce, Brandon, Peggy, Anthony Dwain, and Anna, Brenda Lee is still alive. She'll turn 67 on December 11. I'm sorry, so sorry....

You are soooo welcome, Amos! That is what I toil for here, to make you a better person, and I am delighted that my earnest efforts are bearing fruit.

Anything else I can help you with?

By the way, that is pretty close to the way Chongo charmed his way into the graces of some great White Hunters back in the 20s in "the old country". Only a few years later he was landing in New York Harbour, and the rest is history.

"Why are all the most colorful Almighties subject to arrested development at a fourth grade level, and a fixation on body parts?"

Actually, they aren't. It just seems that way, because the immature ones make more noise. The quieter deities are equally colorful when you get to know them, in fact even moreso, but they aren't pushy about it.

Why are all the most colorful Almighties subject to arrested development at a fourth grade level, and a fixation on body parts? Maybe they feel guilty about shoddy workmanship, bad design, no QA processes in place, failure to test or sloppy system integration?
A good course in comparative religions can leave you feeling like a day-camp counselor for immature Cub Scouts.

My earnest wish is that you re-express all the thoughts therein in a less opaque and more user-friendly fashion, and it far greater length, run the result up the flagpole, and see who salutes. ;-)

I expect more detail and superior exposition next time. About 5,000 words should be enough to make fully clear what you had in mind.

Nah. If I had them things I'd have to have y'all worship and praise me, which ain't the case at all. Shucks, I don't even ask for a tithe or your first-born or anything like that. Of course, if you do feel like sending money I won't refuse it, but it's not required.

To knock down roofs and kick in doors
Leaving presents on the ground
Santa's hay gives scours all around.

Knee-deep in poop a young child stands

An unneeded job, if Claus would spend
Some hoarded cash on reindeer Depends.

I wrote a story for you all!

There once was a student called Patrick who went by the name DrugCrazed on a folk forum called Mudcat. One day, Drug saw the famous Mother Of All BS thread but ignored it, since it wasn't bothering him. Then, after a few months, the famous thread appeared again and again. Drug was fascinated by such a thread title, but decided to leave it be again. Finally, in the 8th month of the year 2011 the naive Drug gave in and started to read the whole thread.

"Wow", said Drug "This is an interesting idea, surely one thread for all the BS on Mudcat would be very useful". He then continued reading. After a while, he glanced at the URL and nearly fell over. "Hang on, 41600 messages? Sweet Mary of Joseph, no wonder it took so long to get". Such a large number scared the young Drug and he ran to the hills, and decided to avoid the thread in future.

No, it is clear, given the rampant scathing skepticism around here, that not everyone buys into Rapparree's assertion that it was he who Authored Us All. Just look, for example, and the long chain of scathing condescension, criticism, and derogation some of us have levied on his weary person in our fathomless ingratitude. One is forced to wonder, once the first avalanche of guilt and self-abnegation clears away, why a Cosmic Author suh as Himself would author such a furbelow as a carping critic from California, a gaunt and gumptionless granola gummer with the sand of a seaturtle's spineless spittle? Why would He, the all and powerful One, generate such fractious feeble-minded febrile frivolity in his Flawless Space, and have such minor minions behave in such jackanapes manner, tossing sarcasm, scurrilous and scrofulous condemnation and barbarian barbs at his very Raiment of Perfection?

And yet it cannot be question that such is the case.

One can only conclude that He, the One, the All-Powerful, the Author of Us All, is himself tormented by a self-esteem worn a bit ragged along its very seams with self-doubt, a worrisome deep streak of abnegation of self-worth, a smidgen of Self Shaming Sneers and Snarkery riddling the gigantic hollows of his vast Mentallity, like a flock of vipers nested in the basement underpinnings of a giant Temple.

In my temporary and capriciously disingenuous pose as an independent voice, I invite your thoughts on this most profound and cosmic paradox, to know if anyone sees how it might, itself, be paradoctored.

Ha! How do you know we didn't dream you up, just to amuse ourselves? You wouldn't have any way of knowing, because we have endowed you with a fairly basic form of artificial intelligence and self-awareness, just a created character in a computer game. You appear to have free will...in fact you DO have free will within the limited parameters OF your character and of the game, because when we wrote you into the program called "Life" we gave you free will within those parameters.

You are allowed fully to do anything you decide to, within the range of your programmed capabilities.

And that, my friend is how life works! For everyone. It's just like a gigantic computer game simulation where all the characters get to explore the possibilities of the basic role they've been given...and they can even re-write the role as they go along by using their free will creatively.

That's what everyone does, in one way or another. They ARE fully in charge of their own destiny, but they have to deal with certain limitations, that's all. Generally they behave in rather predictable patterns. Occasionally you get one who really KNOWS how to make use of his or her free will, and then some profound things can happen.

Well said, Amos! ;-) I think you are absolutely right. We're playing in the 3-D matrix here, and we try to pick the roles that we like better, that's all. The great secret is exactly as you say it is.

Notice how common it is for people to judge other people "evil", according to the roles they have chosen to play? That's part of the delusion too. It's as if we are all dreaming, yet fully believing that the dream is 100% real. (and most people DO believe a dream while it's happening)

There are myriads upon myriads of illusions and delusions available for humans to test themselves or amuse themselves or suffer with. The great secret is that some delusions are preferable to others, and even in a universe full of delusions, it is possible to navigate amongst them. IF you MUST be deluded, at least choose delusions which are preferable.

As to whether we must or not, I suspect it is unavoidable in the human matrix, although it may be optional otherwise.

On another subject: it's hard enough to recognize brief glimpses of truth or pure goodness anywhere, but to give genuine service to another seems like a step along the path. So, deluded or not, there must be something good in it.
