The debbils in my nerves
The debbil's in my brain
The debbil's in my muscles
And he's causing me pain.
The debbil's in my shoulders
And in my aching back
The debbil's in my myelin sheathing
And my sacroiliac!

Debbil cause me trouble
Debbil, I am done with you!
Debbil, go find someone else
To cause your trouble to!!

MOM! I just heard Ben and Jerry of Ben and Jerry's ice cream speak at my campus! And they gave us all ice cream bars afterward! Whoo hoo! (Boy, was the timing of this talk ever perfect, with the Occupy Wall Street stuff going on.)

Give thy thoughts no tongue,
Nor any unproportioned thought his act.
Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.
Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
Of each new-hatch'd, unfledged comrade. Beware
Of entrance to a quarrel, but being in,
Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy;
For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
And they in France of the best rank and station
Are of a most select and generous chief in that.
Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Must pay off the credit cards, to no longer a borrower be. And pay off the house. We're all enslaved by our banks, and we put ourselves into that slavery. Ironic, isn't it?

Ice-creak-speak is a dizzying tongue
ANd only spoken by the young
It rules the minds of kids who get it
Until they're twelve, when they forget it!
But young ones know, when feeling weak
The answer lies in ice-cream speak!

Do you deny that every single word you have ever used to post ANYWHERE on Mudcat (and elsewhere) wasn't plagiarized, lifted and used without proper citation and attribution, from not one, but several, dictionaries? (Merriam Webster New Collegiate Dictionary, p. 1 et seq.)

Then there came the hero Amos
Red his rod and red his ringlets
Dripping downward hiding fright-face
Hiding hideous halfling haunted
Gripping grimly a Gibson guitar
Quite at ready to marinate Martins.
This was Amos who fought the sea-mares
Fought the whale-fish fought the monster
Grendel's son hight Junior Grendel
Left him there sword-slashed and axe-cleaved
Long his mother weeped   o'er "Junie"
Long her eyes shed drops of salt-water
Until the Ocean rose itself up
Left its banks its meets and bounds
Leaving longships high on hillocks
Leaving longships moored on mountains
Heroes gon a-viking stranded 'til succumbed they to the sea.
Loud the weeping women mourned   mourned for men who'd come no more
Loud the keening of the kinder kith and kin killed by the waves.
Loud the cursing of dark Hela   adding rooms to her abode
For but few Valhalla-choosen   far but few heroes lived then
But for Amos him the hero who had caused this awful slaughter
Who had brought down Hela's wrath   her dark wrath up his head
She then cursed his Gibson guitar   her curse upon his fingers ten
Cursed to play a cursed Martin   or a cursed Apollonio
Cursed to play a Walmart Special left him cried forever more.

I tune in almost every day here to watch the epic battles of those mighty heroes of legend and lore, the Anomalous Amos and the Raging Rapparee, swinging their vorpal blades wildly 'midst roiling clouds of dust and purple prose as the beasts of the field flee in terror all around them and the very Gods above lift a scandalize eyebrow in wonder at the passion and folly of mortal man in the grip of his untrammeled ego.

Left my vorpal blade out in the rain,
And it rusted 'til I can't use it again
And I don't think I can take it
'Cause it took so long to make it
And the Elvin smith won't work for me agaiiin!
Oh, noooooooo!

The gods decree the man who battles,
Takes his stand and roars and rattles,
Takes what he has and stands for truth,
Fights on for justice, gilt and sooth,
Shall be rewarded life composed
Full free of ruth, and warm of toes
And by his heart-full use of Self
Shall gain composure, and good pelf.
While he who far from struggle bends
And to assert his truth forfends,
Shall slowly --as he condescends --
Succumb to spiritual bends
And like some sanctimonious Hessian
Be all undone by decompression,
And on the heights, shall fall in flight,
Because, when low, he would not fight.

There's a rare cold snap blowing through my SOtuhern California town, with gray skies and rattling branches, and a dank chill to it all which I am ill equipped to survive. I suffer, and wish for summer again. I am even wearing a sweater. But to no avail!! I am wearing my wooly bedroom slippers, tyoo!! But nothing works!!

Then in my fit of chilled shivers I remember Eiseley, whose patient fingers made me a pair of beautiful warm green woolie socks for my footsies. I hasten to my old bureau and dig them out, and put them on!!! Ahh, relief!! Warmth!! The chills subside and I can think clearly once more.

So today I am grateful to our own Ms. Eiseley whose perspicacity and wit are matched only by her dexterity and generosity of soul.

Thank you, Ms. Eiseley!!

Last night we had Alice to dinner; Alice is 78 years old and leathery as a working bridle, with bright black eyes that are always laughing. She is bright of soul, having been through six hells in her many years. She is a wrangler and a rider and a lover of beaten dogs and good horses.

I served a nice dinner of brown rice with vegetables and nuts, broiled bison flank steak, red wine and salad.

It was nice sipping wine and talking to Alice. I sang her "Buffalo Skinners" and we talked about all sorts of things. Then she went home and we washed all the dishes so we would not have to deal with them in the morning.

It was the abandoned son, Hargrove, whose mother, an ill-starred minor actress, had to confess to him that she and Henry had once over-indulged in rare liqueurs over one long and well-forgotten weekend. She looked at her growing son sadly and told him, "Absinthe made thee, Hargrove Fonda."

You are old, Father Amos, the young man said
And your hare's grown exceedingly long
Yet you still play guitar with a capo and pick
Do you think, at your age, it is wrong?

In my yout, said the old man, I took to the sea
And fought in bars from Olso to Aden
The scar tissue resultant quite addled my brain
So with picks and with capos I'm laden.

You are old, Father Amos, the young man said
And your...Shut up! you nasty young bounder!
If you cannot keep a civil tongue in your head
I'll feed it to sharks and to flounder!

Well, I never! said the young man, completely aghast.
Oh, surely, the old man replied
I doubt that you could do it at all very well
No matter how hard that you tried.

We wuz 42 seven and ninety some
On the way to Forty-three.
And the wind blew high, and the wind blew low,
And it boiled up a follerin' sea.
As we trimmed our sheets, and froze our feet
On the way to Forty three!

On the long sea road, with a BS load
Such merry souls were we,
As the main yards groaned midst the holy stones,
On the way to Forty-Three!


We was short of hands, and wuz far from land
Not a beachhead could we see,
And the rollers came on every hand
In a dark and wind-torn sea.
But we never blinked, nor slept a wink,
We was bold as bold could be,
On the way to Forty Three!

On the long sea road, with a BS load
Such merry souls were we,
As the main yards groaned midst the holy stones,
On the way to Forty-Three!


Oh, the lee rail drowned in the whistling sound
Of the foam caps blowing free,
And the cold sea roamed by the hatches coam,
And the bilges smelled like pee.
But the hands were stout, and they all turned out,
When the bosun's pipe sang wee,
God bless us all, on that cannon ball,
Making way for Forty Three!

On the long sea road, with a BS load
Such merry souls were we,
As the main yards groaned midst the holy stones,
On the way to Forty-Three!
