I finished cooking the rice and making the guacamole (to freeze) and pretty soon I have to put the chops on and stir fry the rice. Aren't you all eating dinner tonight?

Cold water, Rap, even works on duck dogs.

I'm working on the house, getting it in some sort of shape before Pat gets home. Gotta throw out the old cigar butts and empty Thunderbird bottles, get the thongs off the ceiling fan, stuff like that.

Her plane was delayed leaving BWI and she may miss her connection from SLC, that would put her in sometime after midnight.

That's okay though. She really, really needs to get back here before she goes back to DC in, hopefully, two weeks or so.

Geez, Louise. You want sompin' done, you gotta do it yourself.

Don't bother the dogs if you come over for dinner. This time of year their slobber is so intense you have to wash your hands for ages before you can get it off of your hands.

Filing that last report from the department of redundancy department. Now off to cook the rest of the meal. Then back to my computer stuff. Good thing it's so hot out that I don't want to go outdoors or anything. Tomorrow evening should be different--I'm getting my attic ceiling (the bottom of the decking) painted with a special paint to reflect 75% of the heat. I'm looking forward to that!

And she did it all alone! Bravely pushing forward where no man dared to go, holding high her banner (reading, of course, "Exclesior!"), wading through shoulder-deep swamp water crawling with water moccasins and alligators, sleet driving against her skin like needles from a high pressure hose, her eyebrows and hair brittle with rime, fighting off exhaustion tho' every step bid her lay down and surrender to the arms of Morpheus, rappelling down cliffs thousands of feet high with only a bit of fishing line instead of rope, the Mongol Hordes releasing their swarms of poison-tipped arrows, she won through and posted the 13,000th post!

Mom is proud of you. You may have dessert.

Onward, onward, to 15K!
Onward, onward we sing!
Beyond 15 lies 20 and more
It is nothing, it means not a thing.

Dear MOAB commands us,
BS drives us on,
Courage and Truth are our keys,
Tho' freds roil around us,
Tho' our foes us assail,
We shall never fall to our knees!

Through blistering hail and shivering sun,
Through floods, tempest, and quake
Dear MOAB stills call us,
We shall answer her call
Tho' we've nothing to eat but a hake.

Then onward! And upward! On to 200K!
Three hundred! A billion or more!
MOAB commands us and we shall obey
And BS will live evermore!!

         -- Chauncey Kincaid, Poems Old and New, 1903.

CRUNCH!!!


Bugger


For some reason, probably connected with a pothole, my rear derailleur just decided to jump through the spokes of the rear wheel. Both lost. There's £50 pounds of parts as a minimum needed, and workshop time will be twice that...


Loud metallic crunches and sudden stops are not what you want, especially not at speed, with impatient traffic just behind you. And to top it off, the shop I'd just gone to find was shut.

Hope everyone else is having a better day.

Good damn reason to drive a car. Big car. A Ford Excessive or a Chevy Leviathan or one of them new Humblers from GM. Each of 'em flattens down the road enough that the potholes all level out, and once you're past the road springs back the way it was so lesser people have potholes.   And they get good mileage, too: like 35 mpg* on the highway.

We had a small local pothole that did that. It was a scandal, I don't mind telling you. It had been relatively well-behaved but one night, I guess, it got confused, and ended up pregnant.

It never did admit who the perpetrator was, but we have reason to believe it was a black hole from out by Aldebaran. There's something irresistible about 'em.

Bunn, is that a bike or a car with that damage? I don't know what the derailleur is (though when I dropped the word into Google, where I'd been doing an image search, this popped up). A bike, apparently. Looks like the wrong hardware for a rickshaw.

A derailleur is the mechanism that shifts the chain from side to side, so changing gear. It's several solid bits of metal, so it one of the many, many things you don't want to go though the spokes of a bike.

I didn't mean the incomplete accelerator. I meant the one before that.

The Texas Goddess and I oncet had a conversation about that bizarre accelerator and the town that went with it...and I wrote her a choon on it...


G                                                                A
Well, I'd like to tell you buddy, 'bout a place called Boz,
D7                               G
Cutest little town that ever there was,
G                                       A
It had farms and a feedstore and a real pharmacy
A7                      D7                         G
And a drive in movie just for makin' free
B7                                           E7
It had one gas station and a funny old name
A7                      D7          G
A sweet little town on the plain.
                  G                         C                   D7
(Spoken: Nice place to raise up some kinda kids, yeah...)

Chorus:
G    E7                            Am
You can't get to Boz from here anymore
D7                                                       G
They tore down the schoolhouse and the corner drugstore
G             E7                                 Am
There's a twenty mile tunnel running underground
D7                                              G
And nothing but memory left of town
B7                                        E7
So don't bother asking for the town that was,

       A7                  D7         G
You can't get from here to Boz!

Now there ain't no explaining how some things come around,
The Feds put their attention on this little Texas town,
And they came and explained how they would help those folks along
With a supercollider that was twenty miles long!
A giant concrete tunnel underneath their farms
Where scientists would study all them bosons and charms!

(Spoken: "Yes, suh!! I'm from the gommint, an' I'm here to help ya!!"

Chorus

Now,the town fathers said it was a heck of a plan
And they voted it in to the very last man
They had Federal dollars flooding their dreams
And they came up with a thousand Super Collider schemes
They planned a Super Collider rib joint and a Super Collider Inn
And a Subatomic Lauindromat to wash yer socks in


(Spoken: Then they up an' built thet that Billion Dollar Boondoggle Bowling Lanes establishment!!)

Chorus

So the Feds built the tunnel and it's down there to this day
Underneath the long abandoned farms where folks moved away
It seems the first billiion all got spent on the plans
And the cost of that tunnel, well it got out of hand
And before those atoms started running in rings
The Feds put their thoughts onto other things

(Spoken: Like a new Super Computer Center, right outside of Penobscot, Maine)

Then the money dried up, and they'd filled in the wells,
And the real estate values started sliding toward hell,
And the three thousand scientists just moved away
And they all got jobs out in San Jose
And the cinema ands as station are dry as tombs
And the tunnel's full of green mushrooms!

(Spoken: So the Army stuidied out what they could learn from all this ya know. It taught 'em a thing or two. 'Bout the fine art of digging big ditches and fillin' 'em in again!)

Rap's right--I found some more small print regarding this event:

May his pig never grunt, may his cat never hunt,
May a ghost always haunt him in the dead of the night,
May his hen never lay, may his ass never bray,
May his coat fly away like an old paper kite;
May the lice and the fleas the wretch ever tease,
May the pinching north breeze make him tremble and shake,
May a four-year-old bug build a nest in the Iug,
Of the mudster that captured rare 13031-ake.
May his cock never crow, may his bellows ne'er blow,
And a-pot or po, may he never have one,
May his cradle not rock, may his box have no lock,
May his wife have no smock to shield her back bone,
May his duck never quack, and his goose turn quite black
And pull down the turf with his long yellow beak.
May scurvy and itch, not depart from the breech,
Of the monster that captured rare 13031-ake.

May his pipe never smoke, may his teapot be broke,
And to add to the joke may his kettle not boil,
May he lay in the bed 'till the moment he's dead
May he always be fed on lob-scouse and fish oil,
May he swell with the gout, may his grinders fall out,
May he roar, bawl and shout, with the horrid toothache.
May his temples wear horns, and all his toes corns,
The monster that captured rare 13031-ake.
May his spade never dig, may his sow never pig,
Every nit on his head be as large as a snall,
May his house have no thatch and his door have no latch,
Nay his turkey not hatch, may the rats eat his meal,
May every old fairy fiom Cork to Dunleary,
Dip him in snug and easy in some pond or lake,
Where the eel and the trout may slime in the snout,
Of the mudster that captured rare 13031-ake.

May his dog yelp and growl with hunger and cold,
May his wife always scold 'till his brain goes astray,
May the curse of each hag, that e'er carried a bag,
Alight on his nag till his beard it turns grey,
May monkeys still bite him, and man-apes affright him,
And everyone slight him asleep or awake,
May weasels still gnaw him, and jackdaws still claw him,
The mudster that captured rare 13031-ake.

May his laws never pass, may the frost nip his ass,
In drastic depression may his businesses fail,
May his drafts always bounce, may his cats never pounce,
May the Council reject him and clap him in gaol!

May busloads of trippers, with mama's and nippers,
Come trample his dahlias , make his pacemaker click,
May a foreclosure lease cause the rapid decease
Of the monster who murdered my beautiful chick!

May his pecker stay limp and his wife be a blimp
And his son be a wimp with a cross-threaded dick
May his Sundays be stormy and overdraft warnings
Stack up on his doorstep in piles deep and thick.

May the tourist-trade swells with their antiquéd bells
Harass him to hell with a suit for lost trade
May his house lose its power, his watch lose an hour,.
His daughter her flower an' his soul lose its shade!

May his landlord be snide, and likewise his bride
And his best hand-grown roses blow up and away;
May his checks be rejected, his phone disconnected
And his dam'd PDA start to write en Francais.

May his groin spring a sprain, may his picnics all rain!
May his guilt like a lance burn a hole in his head
May he spavine his back and be tortured and racked
By hemorrhoid pain, as he lies in his bed.

May his friends borrow money, his jokes not be funny,
His dog turn a traitor, and leave him alone,
May his appetite jade, and his draperies fade,
May his wife turn to ice, and his mistress to stone!

You call that a curse? I have all of those things happen most every week, and twice on Sundays. I remember the curses we used to have, so terrible that even thinking about them is more than most people can stand, and actually typing them out would be inviting the drowning of Mudcat central, or worse.

The Gods themselves drempt up these curses, after that incident. You know the one, the one that took the somewhat longer than the universe has existed for. All those things that come up in the classics, like having your liver torn out by an eagle for all eternity seem like light relief. The curse of 13031 is no curse, merely a string of petty annoyances!

Do you know what Gluon does to those people who keep on using Bad Language? Do you? Well, if you do, would you mind awfully letting all of us know, as we've been wondering, there's a good chap.

You see, all this uncertainty stuff hanging around that creature means we either know what happens, or when, and as it's all written down in here somewhere, the when is fixed, you see, so we can't actually ever know.

You, you useful fellow, on the other hand probably haven't finished reading back that far, so you don't know when, so you might be able to tell us what happens.

I have a feeling this inclination of mine to adopt a writing style somewhat reminiscient of Noel Coward on an off day may arise from that creature, but whenever I think about it too hard, I have this feeling that just will not lerave me alone, unless I distract it with a bottle of champagne and a pretty girl or two.
