Hello again Mom!

y'know, time travel was a lot easaier 16 years ago. Even 10 years ago.


these days I find the round trip a bit exhausting. But I made it to 1585 and back. I'm not sure all my brain cells did, so If gluon shows up with one or two, see if you can get her to bring them to me, allright?

One could argue that Colorado is a one Boulder state. But one would be missing the forest for the trees.

As do bloggers understand that this is behind the times, though the blogger still isn't apparently a librarian. You have to drop down to the remarks by ACTUAL librarians to get some balance.

Thanks for that citation. I forwarded it to the library staff. (That is a lot of stereotyped stuff for any normal library staff to wade through, but I'm sure they'll understand that the New York Times is a bit behind the times.)

The NY Times reports that Rapaire's dreams and fantasies are being realized, if too late for him...a whole generation of hip, bright, technosavvy meterosexual librarians is in bloom. Don't you hate it when your best and brightest concepts finally come to fruition, and you've grown too old to enjoy it? Sigh. I do.

Story here.

Thanks to nano technology and supermicroscopy, even the most diligent filer can be caught with bad numbers and hounded by the Feds. Of course, some of the Feds insist on harassing even the most diligent non-filers and catching their bad numbers, too, so ya can't win. Wodda racket!! No wonder Cheney is racking up bigger crime hits than the Mafia these days.

Geez, I thought you guys woulda heard about filing off the serial numbers. So I had these numbers, see? And I was sanding off the serial numbers so they couldn't be identified by the Mathematikstaatspolizei.

Rapaire's sainted mother told him often, "Always remember, my boy, your numbers can never be too smooth,"   He has taken this, out of all her advices, to heart, for reasons shrouded in mystery.

Rapaire, why are you sanding your numbers? Are they a bit rough around the edges?

Wow! If I'd been paying attention, I'd have waited seven minutes and called coup fourré! Thanks for pointing that out. Hmmm. Guess I'd better go see what the numbers were on my 7/7/07 lotto ticket. . .

Hey, MOM, didja notice how good the lawn looks? I mowed the front yesterday and the back today and even did the trimming. I also gave the dogs each a bath. Time to shape up around here, no more of this everything looking and smelling like the edge of a swamp.

Fars? What fars wouldja be talkin' about? We're flooded around here, swarms of skeeters everwhere.

The big un' is about 70 miles west. Nothing burning in the immediate area at the moment -- some young adults(?) decided to have a campfire the other night and it burned up a shed and 25 acres of the folks' farm. It's out, and I assume that mom and dad are not pleased....

It used to drive me nuts to hear about all of the wildfires that I wasn't out fighting. For years. I seem to have gotten over most of that finally. I put myself through my undergraduate years working for the Forest Service and raking in the overtime and hazardous duty pay and per diem and holiday double time, etc.

My pickup experienced an interesting number this evening. 86666. Not quite a pinwheel, but certainly round!

Yikes! That big fire sounds dangerous. I hope it isn't coming your way, Rapaire. How close is it?

It's hard to imagine heat and fires at the moment here in Oz where it's cold, damp and wintery, but we certainly have our share of bushfires in summer.

Some say the world will end in fire,

From what I 've tasted of desire,
I'd say by fire;
But more than stress,
My second guess
Is by BS.

A panel of scientists convened by the country's leading scientific advisory group says the hunt for extraterrestrial life should be greatly expanded to include what they call "weird life": organisms that lack DNA or other molecules found in life as we know it.

"The committee's investigation makes clear that life is possible in forms different from those on Earth," the scientists conclude in their report, "The Limits of Organic Life in Planetary Systems," published yesterday by the National Research Council.

Other experts hailed the report as an important rethinking of the search for life.


Someone should tell them science fellers about Mom's place...weird life, just a browse away!

I am afraid your Ghastian texture is revealing itself, amigo, finally unleashed from the desperate restraint under which you have kept your ignoble secret.

Perhaps Confederate IOUs.



The Ghasts they lick their fingers,

   And the Ghasts they lick their knives;

They spill their broth on the tablecloth--

   Oh, they lead disgusting lives!

The Ghasts they talk while eating,

   And chew both loud and fast;

And that is why I'm glad that I

   Will never be a Ghast!

I have known you to be many things, ole friend, but this is the first time you came clean about being one of those Ghasts. I don't know how to take this, after all this time. We welcomed you and chatted with you, like a friend and a normal person, never dreaming that beneath that witty exterior lurked an actual Ghast. Now that you have come clean we might have to think a spell on just how we want to deal with this. It is not exactly comfortable or reassuring news, you will understand. You must have observed, in your many years in disguise, the reputation for perfidious, abhorrent, gruesome and perverted habits attributed to Ghasts by members of this society. While it is brave of you to confess, I must reflect on how to respond, and am open to suggestions.

Ah, Maggie, it is quite pleasant now in the hour of crepescule, but the midday heat is still somewhat excessive. If it were not for my boundless fascination with the performance of low-power radio links in parking lots surrounded by huge hunks of steel (carii Americanii's natural epidermal layer and skeletal structure) I would have fled to the gentle shores of the blue Pacific, but it was not to be.

Much as I enjoy my work I would rather be paid well for gadding about. Unfortunately the well-paid gadabout has been a fading breed since the advent of the automatic transmission and the Internet.

My, you chilluns have been soooo busy whilst I was out testing radio time-of-flight ranging equipment for accuracy and sensitivity. I yam really amazed Mom's house is still standing, with all this hot air and squabble ready to lift it right off its foundations.

Rapaire, you misconstrue the situation, my brother. The only realm in which these numbers have any value or meaning is the realm of Familia Matris, of which you, as a duly recognized and self-lubricated member, must stand in recognition and reciprocal ownership. Therefore and thereby and herewith, thou canst not argue such an issue on behalf of some other family since any such family from within the context aforementioned, must in fact be but an imaginary family and therefore without standing.

Therefore be at peace and strive to help your mother and your siblings.
